To begin this post in a somewhat unintentionally flippant and obscure manner, it is often said that while watching a sport, if you don’t notice the umpires, they’ve probably been doing a good job. They’ve most likely been letting the game flow and imposing infringements only when absolutely necessary to uphold the spirit of the game.
I've already said my piece on the nonsense laws introduced to monitor our internet activity. But now it seems the Canberra Arseclowns are at it again, introducing legislation that attempts to hide their disgusting behaviour toward asylum seekers.
The Border Force Act 2015 provides for the jailing of health workers who speak out about the conditions we put asylum seekers in. The background to our treatment of people seeking asylum in our country is a long and very sad one, but to summarise – the Government is so desperate to win the votes of the ignorant fools who feel we should “stop the boats” at any cost, that they ship asylum seekers off to a tiny island in the Pacific Ocean, where they languish until…well, I dunno… whenever.
A group of 40 health care workers have spoken up about the ridiculous new law, effective today, and in doing so have given a massive ‘fuck you’ to the Government. I love it. This sort of action should be applauded.. When a bunch of raving loons take over and start running the game however they want, and when the loons’ opposition stand by and wave the insanity through in the pathetic attempt at being voted in next election, we should all stand up and tell them to get fucked.
I encourage you to spread this story, and the open letter below, far and wide. The attempt to cover up disgusting behaviour is deplorable, but to do it just after weakening our own rights to privacy is the act of a bunch of retarded psychopaths.
