Premier Daniel Andrews allowed BLM protests in Melbourne on 6 June where 10,000 protesters were allowed to gather with no social distancing constraints. This resulted in a massive spike in coronavirus cases causing new, more stringent restrictions on all Victorians, from Melbourne to regional Victoria. The result? Law-abiding Victorians have had to pick up the tab by being forced to wear masks any and everywhere, both indoors and outdoors.Then our premier steps onto the scene, black-masked, and acts like our concerned health saviour. I know the conversation has moved on to quarantine stuff-ups but I still can’t get past the decision over the BLM rally in June.
Rachel Baxendale and others from The Australian have been reporting on the situation, holding Victoria’s Department of Health and Human Services to account for their reporting of health data back to the media. It may be that Victoria’s DHHS needs to explain a few anomalies. They appear to have given the media conflicting information on two separate occasions. And according to a graph published in The Guardian, coronavirus cases in Victoria rose sharply from about two weeks after the BLM rally. See the report here showing a new upward trend in COVID cases beginning about two weeks after the BLM rally. If you go to the linked webpage, click on ‘Victoria’ and scroll down the section. It was convenient for Premier Andrews to blame a few families when it came to explaining the second wave of coronavirus that hit Victoria. But in reporting in The Australian on 15/7/20, a link was made between where these families lived (two Melbourne public housing towers that were later locked down) and the BLM protests. Two of the BLM protesters were linked to families from these towers.
And now we have the increased aged care resident deaths with no clear idea of why hospitals are turning away sick patients, if indeed they are. Sharri Markson has written in The Australian, 13/8/20, about the ping pong blame game going on. Aged Care facilities are blaming hospitals and Victoria’s DHHS while Daniel Andrews is denying that hospitals have turned away elderly patients.
“The response from the Royal Melbourne Hospital was fast and effective and 20 residents were transferred to public and private hospitals across Melbourne. This was because they were unwell or were unable to be isolated due to dementia…Now in level four lockdown the public health response is the opposite.” (Dr Robert Hoffman, working in aged care homes.)Sharri Markson, The Australian, 13/8/20.
So has the DHHS under Daniel Andrews’ leadership handed out a new directive to hospitals with regard to Covid and the elderly? What is going on that Daniel Andrews keeps refuting government departments when what they claim doesn’t suit him? I found Mikhail’s response in the comments section of the Markson article pertinent:
Here is another case of Sergeant Shultz defence by Premier Andrews. He Does not know who is responsible for quarantine program, that ADF help was offered and refused and that hospitals refuse admission to the elderly. And all this in the middle of the epidemic he apparently tirelessly concentrates on fighting. So the question is: why do we need a Premier who knows nothing? What does he get paid for?Mikhail, comments section, The Australian.
To make matters worse for Victorians, not satisfied with his COVID catastrophes, Premier Andrews is now being let loose on pushing forward his transgender and safe injecting rooms agendas. Regarding the ‘safe schools program’, what the Victorian premier is doing is foisting the sex-obsessed transgender program onto school children, thereby allowing molestation en masse through the corruption of children’s minds and spirits. Who is safe with the implementation of this program? Is it most school children? No, it is the transgender preachers and proselytisers.
Our premier is also effectively promoting drug culture as the norm through his ‘safe’ injecting rooms. These injecting rooms pave the way for drug addicts to keep using drugs and for drug pushers to keep pushing drugs. These approaches to running a state would be seen as outrageous by most law-abiding citizens but what is going on in the areas of transgender education and safe injecting rooms are not clearly visible to many voters. If they are clearly visible, what outdated world are they living in to vote for a candidate like Daniel Andrews? In some, like school teachers, they have always voted for ‘health and education’ issues so Labour is the go-to party of choice. Yet this is how your tax money is being spent in ‘education’ under Andrews’ leadership – transgender programs. The Education Department is being expanded to pay for transgender experts to come into schools to influence children, not to mention regular teaching staff. Even Anthony Albanese, the federal Labour opposition leader, finds Andrews too much as do some other Labour politicians (at least on the issue of the Belt and Road Initiative). Safe injecting rooms would come under the banner of health, yet your tax health dollar is being spent on the promotion of un-health; on the demise of drug-dependent individuals. Drugs destroy people whether they are made legal or not.
It is as George Orwell said in “Nineteen Eighty-Four” –
Even the names of the four Ministries by which we are governed exhibit a sort of impudence in their deliberate reversal of the facts. The Ministry of Peace concerns itself with war, the Ministry of Truth with lies, the Ministry of Love with torture and the Ministry of Plenty with starvation. These contradictions are not accidental, nor do they result from ordinary hypocrisy; they are deliberate exercises in doublethink.Orwell, George. Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984) . Parnell Classics.
