No wonder the country is in turmoil with premiers like Mark McGowan running our states and territories.
The WA Premier suggested recently that protestors should “grow a brain”. He even asked, “What are they protesting about?”
Surely, he can’t be serious, can he?
Mr McGowan continued by saying that “we’re not in lockdown. We’re in a free community, free society. I think they’re just out there because they’re trying to cause trouble, they’re the sort of people who’d like to cause trouble.”
Ask the residents of New South Wales and Victoria if they’re in a “free society”. This just goes to show how delusional Mr McGowan really is.
Unlike our Prime Minister and state premiers, the rest of the country is united and many people realise that we are all in this together. The residents of WA are hurting now for those in other states. Many have family and friends that have suffered through some of the longest lockdowns in the world.
People are protesting against closed state borders that have prevented them from seeing loved ones. People are protesting for those who have lost jobs, businesses and income. People are protesting for those who are suffering from mental health issues as a result of the restrictive measures. And people are protesting for Australian citizens stranded overseas who have been forgotten about by their government.
These are just a few of the reasons why people are protesting.
“The alternative is when or if we get outbreaks, more people will get sick, and more people die, and our hospitals have more and more pressure applied… If you’re a health professional, you should understand the value of being vaccinated”, said Mr McGowan.
Is this why many health professionals are walking off the job? They can see that the vaccine is neither safe or effective. They would prefer to give up their careers rather than take an experimental product.
The Western Australian government recently announced that “100 per cent of healthcare workers and health support workers who worked in public and private hospitals and public health service facilities would be fully vaccinated”.
Many health care workers are opposed to the vaccine for a variety of reasons. The long-term safety and duration of protection is unknown, vaccine efficacy against asymptomatic infection and viral transmission has not yet been addressed, and a correlate of protection has yet to be established. This is according to the TGA’s Australian Public Assessment Report.
Furthermore, the Pfizer Six Month Safety and Efficacy Data showed a 0.13% reduction in severe illness, a reduction in hospitalisation was not measured, and a reported 0.002% reduction in death is not statistically significant.
Data out of some of the most highly vaccinated countries in the world isn’t any better. At the time of writing, 82% of the population in Singapore is fully vaccinated. However, the case numbers, severe illness, hospitalisations and death continue to rise.
Singapore is experiencing record case numbers, with a 7-day average of 1,697 cases. At the peak of the first wave in April 2020, the highest case number recorded was 1,426.
In 2020, Singapore recorded 29 COVID-19 deaths. In 2021, that number is 56.
55% of those in hospital, 44% of those requiring oxygen supplementation and 44% of those in ICU are fully vaccinated.
In the UK, 50% of the cases of the Delta variant were in the unvaccinated for those under the age of 50, whilst only 9% of the cases were unvaccinated for those 50 years and older. In terms of deaths, 65% were unvaccinated under 50, whilst only 25% of those 50 years and older who passed away were unvaccinated.
Given the rushed nature of this vaccine, and the fact that it is still in the clinical trial phase with no long-term safety data, one can understand why people, particularly health care workers, refuse to take the vaccine.
Further evidence was released recently regarding viral transmission. A preprint study found that there was “no significant difference in cycle threshold values between vaccinated and unvaccinated, asymptomatic and symptomatic groups infected with SARS-CoV-2 Delta”, indicating that the viral loads are the same. Essentially, this means that vaccinated people are just as likely as unvaccinated people to transmit the virus.
“Our study is consistent with other recent reports showing similar viral loads among vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals in settings with transmission of the Delta variant.”
“In a Wisconsin study, Ct-values were similar and culture positivity was not different in a subset of analyses between 11 vaccinated and 24 unvaccinated cases. In both Massachusetts and Singapore, individuals with vaccination breakthroughs caused by the Delta variant had similar Ct-values as unvaccinated individuals.”
“A substantial proportion of asymptomatic, fully vaccinated individuals in our study had low Ct-values, indicative of high viral loads.”
“Given that low Ct-values are indicative of high levels of virus, culture positivity, and increased transmission, our detection of low Ct-values in asymptomatic, fully vaccinated individuals is consistent with the potential for transmission from breakthrough infections prior to any emergence of symptoms.”
Vaccine mandates are of no benefit, they are unconstitutional and they are immoral. They are wrong in every single way.
This is why people are protesting. They are protesting against tyranny and they are fighting for freedom.
Everyone has the right to choose what they put into their body, and the body of their children. Vaccine mandates remove this right, and they have no place in Australia. Not now. Not ever.
