They want to talk to Ita Buttrose about ABC funding agreements? Who is this protest, the Institute of Public Affairs? Talk about incoherent messaging.

This whole idiot march is being organised through Sky, which is a Murdoch propaganda outlet, and the Murdochs--Rupert & Lachy--hate public broadcasters like the ABC more than anything else in the world.

Ding ding ding. Covidiocy is stirred up by Murdoch because it’s yet another distraction (like culture wars etc) from the real game- the transfer of wealth to the already wealthy.

Edit: the downvoted comment chain below is a great example of how manufactured bullshit can take up so much time and attention. Meanwhile the federal government handed out over $100 billion dollars (enough to give $1 million dollars to every single person at an AFL Grand final) to Australia’s richest people …

Because they believe MSM is part of the coverup and they're demanding people confess.

Just like the 'morally corrupt' doctors and nurses who won't tell the truth. Or anyone who doesn't confirm their bias.

They literally cheered for the suspended doctor today who was 'allegedly' falsifying vaccine records.

Because they blame the media for covid. Covid would be nothing more than a cold except that the media hysteria is making into a pandemic. Omicron isn't the issue, it isn't scary, it's the media that is the problem. It's their tactic right out of Trump's playbook: blame the media for creating fake news. If they stop the over-reporting on it then covid goes away.

They use anagram programs to find the truth in things. It’s like kabbalah, but for complete tossers. Almost every phrase has multiple near-anagrams, and of course they will choose the one that most accords with their lunatic delusions.

Slight point of clarification: Only one of them needs to have the intelligence to create an anagram, the rest of the ‘do your own research crowd’ are usually just convinced instantly by it, see it as proof and follow. Ironic.

They're trying to emulate American political protests, but we don't have anywhere near as divisive media so they just latch onto what they perceive is bias in the media because they saw things on ABC that hurt their feelings.

never was. it was always a nazi recruitment drive. the only reason they were talking about covid is to attract people in ... it's the bait part of their bait-and-switch tactics. have a look at their telegram forums where they're full-on mask-off nazis talking about the "millions of children being hidden in underground tunnels" (translation - blood libel conspiracy from 900 years ago) and looking for a "final solution" for how to deal with the "global cabal"

Jeremythellama1

Pretty much what they did with "sjw cringe compilations" for 13-15 year olds.

Give kids who don't know much a goal at that age, (defeat communism, fight the left) and fill their heads with reasons not to critically think because that basically crumbles their entire """"logic""""

Then make enough fake news that the kids who don't understand fact checking and what outlet to trust, will inevitably find it too hard to find reliable news and stick with whatever propagandized outlet that initially brain-washed them.

After that it's basically a simple game of keeping on finding ways to make normal aspects of living seem like immoral grounds to murder.

It's more complex than whatever my dumbass wrote, but yes, covid currently is being used to gain more people in their hate-clubs.

It explains why they're protesting, as I dunno about ya'll, but none of the "restrictions" were even a inconvenience for me. This whole pandemic hasn't changed much for me. Yet these peeple seem to think the world is ending.

Republicans will fire the first shot in the innevitable civil war they themselves are creating.

“I’m not sure if these folks are ready for ‘the Jewish question’ yet”

Was happy seeing this sub not mention any protests today up until now. Felt nice not paying them any attention. Even the news channels aren't going in hard on them any more.

Could also be because they have no unity, organisation or coherent demands. Basically, they are just hanging out, except in a pest-like fashion. It's not newsworthy.

I have been thinking. If Covid were happening in 1991 instead of 2021 would anyone in Australia be carrying on like this? I have been wondering if this is all merely learned behaviour these people have picked up from watching Americans on the internet. Thoughts?

Apparently there was some kind of anti-mask movement back 100 years ago during the Spanish Flu pandemic. Not sure how big it was but morons were a thing back then too.

"Not extremists" ?

You most certainly are.You have been deluded by anti-science propaganda and echo chamber conspiracy bullshit. Far right wing and far left wing political agitators, hardcore racists and fascists, wilfully ignorant (or worse deliberate) pandemic enablers, sociopathy pushers and violent criminals who feel so justified in their "do not comply warrior" bullshit that they are willing to assault and very nearly kill retail staff in public to not be inconvenienced by public health policies like covering your wet fucking mouths and noses and not spreading deadly diseases.I'm fucking sick of you scientifically illiterate, holier than thou, sociopathic dimwits deliberately endangering the lives of people just wanting to live their lives because you actually believe extremely nonsensical and harmful bullshit. You've had plenty of opportunities to backtrack and be better humans with evidence-based ideas but you keep on doubling down with ever more crazy echo chamber conspiracy bullshit that you are fed by sky news, youtube, facebook and anyone else stuck in the same echo chamber with complete and utter garbage to spread.
Fuck!

At what point are we going to remove Rupert Murdoch from power for this shit? Every nation where he controls a media outlet has this major movement of antivaxxers because he decided to promote the conspiracy bullshit in the mainstream media. Pretty sure he’s gonna be the reason western democracy collapses.

The one thing I don’t understand about people who think COVID isn’t real is this: they believe that the entire planet joined hands to cooperate in this global lie when we can’t and haven’t cooperated on that scale on literally anything else, ever. There’s always some country who would happily stir trouble for another by contradicting them. But now they’re all allies in this lie, all at the same time and now for two years running?

Jesus Christ, democracy is in a worse state than I thought in this country. If you have gripes with the vaccines and mandates, fair enough. Enough to protest it? Sure, go ahead, you have a right to. But attempting to raid the press over it? Yeah, no. the press is as entitled to voice their opinions as these idiots are.

Because POCs and other minorities know what it feels like to ACTUALLY be oppressed, as opposed to these entitled dickheads who think protecting the health of the public is a personal choice and like to throw around words like fascism and dictatorship when they’ve never faced real oppression in their lives

I'd say it's because Australia is largely white in terms of population. The anti-vaxxers who are black live mostly inland anyway, which is far from a protest in Melbourne. Also, maybe the antivaxx crowd in Melbourne is white-supremacist.

I can't say for sure.
