No Minister

We can ignore their criticisms of Communist China

Australia and Holland that is, given how they’ve reacted to the Chinese Lung Snot virus in 2021 and now. Australia has perhaps been the most visible example, with numerous viral videos showing police viciously beating people for transgressions as small as not wearing a mask in public. Then there are the COVID concentration camps where people are forced into multi-week confinement — even if they aren’t positive for the virus.

But Holland’s not far behind:

You’d think it was filmed in mid-’30s Germany or perhaps Birmingham, Alabama in 1963. It comes from Amsterdam, and involves police assaulting people and attacking them with dogs. All because they’re protesting new government lockdowns as Holland’s C-19 case numbers exploded again with the arrival of the terrifying Omicron variant. Never mind the vaccination rates or the medical evidence from these cases around the world showing that it’s barely able to get people sick, let alone being kill them. Such things do not matter to “democratic” authorities who have the authoritarian bit between their teeth.

Sweden by the way has none of this.

There was some good news from the benighted nation of dikes and windmills:

Plus this news about the Dutch protests:

The demonstration came on the same day Dutch police said they would take action to protest the increasing demands of their work. Union representatives have said riot police would continue to work, if necessary.

Heh. Just wear down the cops. I’ve long thought that the way to really do civil disobedience is just to overwhelm the system with numbers. No fighting, just force the cops into 24/7 arrests, fill the jails and courts to the brim.

There’s always voting of course, but as in China, it appears to make no difference.

  1. Newshub’s take, a repost of a reuter’s article: Dutch police with riot shields, batons break up thousands of anti-lockdown protesters

    Makes you think that the protestors were violent, except their picture shows lots of very peaceful people doing nothing except standing.

    Anyway, in contract here is a GB News video of the protest

  2. Yeah, that’s NZ’s MSM for you with their “coverage” of foreign news; copy-and-paste from Reuters, AP, WaPo etc and if that still has not got enough of Left twist on the subject then just re-write the headline.

    Admittedly it’s long-standing knowledge in the newspaper business that many people don’t read beyond the headlines. Sad but true.

    • Certainly gives you an idea of where their heads are at. Will be useful for telling when the tide starts to turn, though.

      Thanks for the link fix above. 🙂

      Missed out the second part of my word, too. Any, should have been anyway. Oh well, am blaming the heat here, have the fan on in my computer room (first time this summer, was about to say this year) & the air con in the kitchen. Still too hot – feels like 30C inside!
