Thank God for the 2nd Amendment.
How should we describe Australia’s leaders? Fascists? Dictators? Tyrants? The worst?
All of them. The authorities have not stopped cracking down on people in the name of HEALTH.
The people are tired of the tyrants. The people want freedom. Melbourne is on its sixth lockdown. SIXTH.
The protests started over the weekend, which Fuzzy covered. The police used pepper spray on the protesters.
The protests did not stop. The Melbourne police took it up a notch with rubber bullets and pepper balls. They arrested over 200 people.
Authorities also claim that far-right groups hijacked the protests. Because, you know, only tradespeople have a problem with the fascists taking away their freedoms:
Authorities and union officials had warned that extremist and far-right groups have also joined the protests.
“There were some people there who you would say were from the building industry,” Victoria state premier Daniel Andrews said.
“There were others who were not. They are not there to protest, they are there for a fight, pretend to be protesting.”

In fact, the police and authorities are so in the right on this that they got a no-fly zone order over Melbourne.
Huh. So that means the media cannot fly over the protests and document the police hunting down the protesters.
Wait! The media rightfully pitched a fit. Authorities made a few concessions:
The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) confirmed to 9News.com.au that Victoria Police had been granted a temporary restricted airspace order over the CBD as they face ongoing protests. Initially media helicopters were completely banned to fly, but Victoria Police have backtracked to allow any who have been given permission but demanded a 60-minute delay on broadcasting any aerial images.
From Thursday, no aircraft is allowed within a three nautical mile radius or below 2500 feet of Melbourne’s CBD without permission from police.
The protesters made them do it, you guys. The media videos and livestreams help out the protesters!
Australia’s 9News Director of News and Current Affairs Darren Wick is frustrated by the move. He insists they support the police, but they cannot stop the media from doing its job.
Wick’s response makes me think he doesn’t buy the vomit coming from the police:
“But to restrict us from seeing what’s there – you can’t do that. They say democracy dies in darkness.
“We have to be able to see. We have to be able to show the public what is happening. We’re not a police state. It’s very unprecedented and it’s very uncomfortable the decision that has been made.”
According to this Victoria Police have applied to put a no fly order on media chopper that supplies footage of protests. pic.twitter.com/qPwxh7hmg6
