COVID-19 Tyranny Tightens in Australia

Remember pregnant Australian mom Zoe Buhler, who was arrested for urging people on Facebook to come to a Freedom Day protest? Looks like she will have plenty of company in custody, now that Australia is following the lead of the dystopian science fiction movie Minority Report by punishing COVID-19 precrime.

The Age reports:

The COVID-19 Omnibus (Emergency Measures) and Other Acts Amendment Bill 2020 was announced on Minister for Health Jenny Mikakos’ website and is now before Parliament. …

The explanatory memorandum to the bill provides for an authorised officer, who reasonably believes that a high risk person (someone either diagnosed with COVID-19 or a close contact) who is required to comply with a self-isolation direction and is likely to refuse or fail to comply with the direction, to detain that person. So the first concern is the speculative or predictive nature of the assessment that the authorised officer is to make before depriving a person of their liberty.

If the Precogs prophesize that someone might not self-quarantine to the fullest extent demanded, out come the handcuffs.

As noted at Summit News, Australia is becoming a COVID-19 police state:

Numerous people have been violently arrested for not wearing a face mask on the street, while journalists have also been arrested merely for covering anti-lockdown protests. Street markets have also been raided and shut down by riot police.

Even Black Lives Matter protests are somewhat frowned upon by authorities, in stark contrast to the USA, where liberal pols go out of their way to encourage them. They must not have gotten the word Down Under that left-wing mobs don’t spread the virus.

On a tip from Lyle.
