Watching the Australian government crackdown on their own citizens over a "public health" order has been disturbing. If you aren't familiar, change that. Then don't kid yourself into thinking it can't happen here. Yes, we have a First Amendment. For now. But listen to this Australian cop address the press about how free speech isn't as important as obeying the government. Think long and hard over how many "leaders" in this country have said some form of "I support free speech, but..." over the past year and a half.
He was giving a presser about "unauthorized" protests. No word if it was one of the protests where cops pepper-sprayed a little girl with a "Let Me Play" sign.
Australia police ??

We have made it clear throughout the previous weeks the police are not opposed to free speech.
I sense at least an implied "but" coming.
We are opposed to activities that oppose the public health order and puts the vast majority of the community in danger.
There it is.
Today's [protests] only further served to jeopardize the freedoms of people who are doing the right thing.
The people viewed as doing the "right thing" are the people who are obediently doing whatever their government tells them to do. This stands in opposition to the Aussies who think that a government telling people how they can exercise and when they can leave their house is bonkers.
We are comfortable with free speech, but when it's done in contravention to a public health order putting the rest of public health in jeopardy the police will not tolerate it.
All in the name of a "public health" order. Over a virus with an over 99% mortality rate (slightly less if you're old or fat). People down under are okay with giving up their rights over what the government says is for the public's health. And the ones who oppose are treated like the weird ones. Or worse, as criminals.
Here in America, we've heard people speak out that climate change is a "public health" crisis. Guns are a "public health" crisis too. And though the Supreme Court stopped him for now, Joe Biden tried coming after your personal property over what the CDC called a "public health" crisis.
Australia is a warning, America. Our "leaders" aren't hiding what they plan to do here if we let them get away with it.
