Once you learn of what’s going on in Australia these days, where a rebellion against the tyranny of the Australian government’s COVID lockdown policies is ramping up, it will make you wonder why haven’t the Americans reacted the same way.
I think there are two reasons. First, because Americans see how the Democrats are treating people who were at the Capitol on January 6. Whether they breeched the Capitol Building or not, many are being arrested on misdemeanor charges and held in jail for months on end, with politicians claiming they are insurrectionists while everyone knows that an insurrection never took place. It was a riot that lasted two-and-a-half hours and the government carried on its business immediately afterward. The Democrats have been exploiting the incident ever since for political power.
The other reason, I believe, is psychological. We Americans have grown up knowing we have certain rights endowed by our Creator and it hasn’t fully hit us yet that a Marxist takeover of our country, which is what has been happening for over a year now, could really happen in America. The COVID lockdowns and forcing masks on us were all part of the takeover and we didn’t realize it. Many never believed or understood the evil coming from Democrats who have been exploiting the virus for power grabs. Our minds just couldn’t comprehend it. Hopefully, what’s going on Down Under wakes us up.
The Democratic Party wants you to believe that all 74 million people who voted for Donald Trump are insurrectionist’s and QAnon white supremacist domestic terrorists. People who write for sites like this one, who question many of the COVID policies of the CDC and state governors, sites that talk about the 2020 election being stolen and how even though millions of Americans have seen the mountains of evidence proving the election was rigged they’re dismissed by all facets of the Left, from politicians to news media hacks and the courts, they are definitely on some list. I hope I’m not on some list, but with the way our intelligence agencies have been corrupted to turn on the American people, I can pretty much bet on it.
Things are different in Australia. They aren’t maintaining lists of people they believe are enemies of the state. There’s no need for that there, because the Australian government has decreed that all of its citizens are enemies of the state. They have forced the single most draconian lockdown rules know in the western world.
If you think things are bad in the United States, we still have many more freedoms left to be taken away than they do now in Australia. I have a friend who lives in Geelong, and I spoke with her last week when she told they had just gone through their sixth lockdown.
In Australia, you’re not even allowed to protest. The government there said you shouldn’t talk to your neighbors or be around your own family members in your home. And by all indications, the Australian people have had enough.

The source of their anger is the hastening and expanding tyranny being imposed on them by their government.
JD Heyes explains some of the things that have driven the usually mild-mannered Aussies to start fighting for their rights for freedom. The piece is headlined, “Australia going full Soviet over COVID-19: Govt. officials now encouraging citizens to rat out neighbors who are having friendly conversations”
From Natural News:
As we’ve been reporting, Western leaders are proving that deep down, they are really tyrants just like the authoritarian regimes they claim to oppose, as we are increasingly seeing in the age of COVID-19.
In the U.S., one Democratic leader after another locked down their communities and their states and then kept them locked down for as long as possible, destroying jobs, their economies, and countless lives in the process. Those same leaders pushed citizens to get vaccinated on the premise that if they did, they could have their lives back. But now, they’ve pulled the rug out on vaccinated people, demanding that even though they’re vaccinated they show proof to participate in society and still be forced to wear a mask anyway.
The same things are happening in Canada, Europe and elsewhere across the Western zone of influence, including Australia, where the tyrannical government has not only called up the country’s military to enforce COVID restrictions but is behaving more like the old Soviet Union. LifeSite News reports that the situation is getting worse by the day Down Under:
Australian officials, having legislated the Stay-at-Home order for New South Wales (NSW), have instructed their citizens to report all infringements of COVID regulations including those committed by neighbors and co-workers.
“Do not let your guard down,” Premier Gladys Berejiklian leader of the Liberal Party commanded during a press conference late last month. “If you see somebody not doing the right thing, please, report it.”
She went further and pressed Australian citizens to report “anything which is not according to the health rules,” anywhere, anytime, and includes their friends, co-workers, and neighbors. That is chilling coming from a leader in a Western democracy.
“Dr. Kerry Chant, the Chief Medical Officer for NSW, is also working to keeping people safe by discouraging social interactions and neighborly exchanges,” LifeSite News added.
Chant actually said in a presser, “whilst it is in human nature to engage in conversation with others, to be friendly, unfortunately this is not the time to do that.” Are you kidding me? It’s not the time to engage in human behavior?
She continued, “Now is the time for minimizing your interactions with others.” As if people haven’t been minimizing their interactions all thoruhgout the pandemic.
Chant said people shouldn’t stop and chat with friends they may bump into while grocery shopping. Can you imagine?
“Even if you have a mask, do not think it affords total protection. We want to be absolutely sure that as we go about our daily lives we are not coming into contact with anyone else that would pose a risk,” Chant added.
So then why mandate wearing masks? What’s the point of it if the government is telling you it doesn’t afford protection?
The Aussie government last week launched a program that would make the old Soviets jealous. “Operation Stay at Home” was launched to enforce its namesake. The government created a COVID lockdown army, including “a 21,000 personnel operation — including 18,000 police officers and 800 members of the Australian Defence Force (ADF) — to enforce public health orders,” ABC Australia reported.
Police and Emergency Services Minister for Berejiklian David Elliott said, “Enough is enough,” showing frustration not at the draconian removal of freedoms, but at the people creating a backlash. “If you break the COVID restrictions, you will get fined.” The fine is $5,000 per offense.
He then went on and gave a message where the desired effect would be to divide the Australian people, saying the government “had to tighten the current public health orders because of the minority who exploited them.” Those would be the Australians who still believe they are in a free country. He wants to make Australians believe that it’s not the government making their lives miserable, it’s the people who still want to live free.
The Australia Lawyer Alliance, a large Australian legal group, said in a statement that using the military to enforce COVID restrictions is a bit of a “dangerous precedent.” You think?
“The role of defense force personnel must be clearly defined,” stated the ALA. The group said the Australian government has to define what the military “will be doing to help manage the response to the virus.”
Now that the Biden administration has suffered a cataclysmic failure in the military withdrawal from Afghanistan, with both sides of the aisle pointing out what a loser Biden made us look like around the world, look for new COVID restrictions to come our way to change the news cycle.
Our CDC is pushing for children to wear masks for eight hours a day for yet another year in school, and so far the backlash has been steady but not all that confrontational. There are leaks coming from the Biden White House that they are champing at the bit to throw a national lockdown on us, and I’m curious to see how Americans will react to our government forcing even more bankruptcies and destroying people’s lives all to generate enough fear to force mail-in ballot voting again to steal the 2022 midterm elections.
