Victorian Premier Dan Andrews is an utter disgrace. What an absolute farce. This video should make your blood boil. Excessive, much? He has just proven beyond any doubt as to exactly why he should never be granted more powers.
A pregnant mother, Zoe Lee, was arrested in her home, handcuffed in her pyjamas in front of her kids and had her mobile and computer devices seized for ‘incitement’ to protest the government’s lockdown extension.
Yes, big brother saw her Facebook post titled, ‘ Freedom Day in Ballarat‘ to be held on September 5th. Zoe Lee openly requested people observe social distancing and wear masks in her post. For context, Ballarat has 5 confirmed cases of COVID-19. Hardly a hot spot.
Black Lives Matter protest – ok. Question the incompetence of the state – arrest.
This is not Australia. The double standards. Dan Andrews blithering incompetence has led to his state being responsible for 82% of deaths across Australia.
Surely, if citizens get a free pass to protest BLM they have every right to peacefully protest to question the the grant of even more powers to the last person qualified to use them.
Never mind that Zoe Lee had an ultrasound appointment that day, the state goons cuffed her anyway. She was hardly a flight risk.
Add this debacle to the ever growing list of failure – the hotel quarantine disaster, training private security guards in diversity not coronavirus prevention, rejecting ADF help, covering up of private security having sex with quarantined hotel guests, fining people for playing golf or fishing and so on.
Some might accuse Zoe Lee of playing with fire. Others might argue she embodies exactly what frustrated Victorians think of the totalitarian one size fits all measures to go to these lengths.
Such is the irony that Andrews posted this today,
“I know some people have strong feelings about the State of Emergency legislation that passed the Upper House last night.
Debate is healthy. Differing opinions are what our democracy is built on.“
Andrews should resign. #FreeZoeLee
