Is this fascist Labor Senator Ciccone from Victoria mixed up with electoral roll stacking?

Another ALP grub from Victoria, but this one hates anti-vaxxers. How close is Raff Ciccone to corrupt branch stacker extraordinaire Adem Somyurek?  A stacked electoral roll is the only way this intellectual pygmy could get elected

The Age – by Senator Raff Cicone

As if the bushfires weren’t bad enough, we’ve since had the world economy shut down, millions infected with COVID-19 and hundreds of thousands dead. This pandemic feels like we’re in the middle of a real-life Hollywood blockbuster.

Like all good movies, this one will leave us fundamentally changed well after it’s ended. Our world will look and feel very different once the show is over. But not for the better.

Thankfully, the possibility of a vaccine for this virus is looking more plausible. Unfortunately, like a diabolical plot twist, the day the vaccine arrives, so too will the inevitable chorus of those who object to being vaccinated. But unlike hapless movie heroes, we can be prepared for this.

How close is Victoria Labor senator Raff Ciccone to electoral roll and branch stacker Adem Somyurek? He donned this hard hat waiting for the sky to fall in from all the vaccine-damaged kids and their suffering families.

To anti-vaxxers, I have one message: our tolerance for your wilful ignorance is over. We cannot afford, morally or economically, to give any ground to those who choose not to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

Let me be clear. I’m not advocating that we vaccinate people against their will. That would be wrong. We must ensure that the safety of our community is the number one priority. That means that participation in everyday life cannot put others at risk. If you do not want to be vaccinated against COVID-19, you ought to bear the consequences of that decision.

As a community, we should consider to what extent we allow organisations to prevent those who object to being vaccinated against COVID-19 to enter their premises, participate in their activities and, in some circumstances, seek their employment.

Governments have gone some way to doing this by implementing policies such as withholding family tax benefits and preventing children from being accepted into childcare unless vaccinations are proven. Further restrictions would be a natural extension of these policies.

Restaurants could be allowed the right to refuse entry to those who are not vaccinated against COVID-19. Businesses, especially those involved in the care or service of vulnerable communities, might be allowed the right to refuse employment to those without a COVID-19 vaccination. Organisers of mass gatherings could deny the sale of tickets on this basis.

No doubt there would be logistical issues to overcome. However, the health and safety of our population should be any government’s primary concern, and the infrastructure to implement these changes exists.

We already have an Australian Immunisation Register in place that tracks a child’s vaccination history. We could expand this program to track what would be the most important vaccination of this century to the population.

There are those who for medical reasons cannot receive vaccinations and would rightly receive an exemption. There are already government guidelines in place that would allow for this to occur.

For the rest who claim they are conscientious objectors, the excuses don’t stack up anymore. There is too much at stake. I know after writing this my office will be inundated with correspondence from anti-vaccination activists demanding to be heard. For those of you who do contact me, know this. I have no interest in your alternative “facts” or your conspiracy theories.

Your views are fortunately in the minority, and that’s how they will be treated. Today’s media landscape is such that you will probably receive attention for your ill-informed comments, but that doesn’t mean you are right. It just means you have been noticed.

The truth is we’re not living in the plot line of a movie. It’s not a story that can just be rewritten, and we won’t just walk out having spent $30 on a movie ticket and popcorn.

This is the real world with real consequences, and more than ever we can’t afford to put lives at risk.

Raff Ciccone is a federal Labor senator for Victoria.

About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

    Please call these freedom haters by their proper classification as communist scumbags and NOT fascist as leftist liberals like to misrepresent Italy’s leader Benito Mussolini’s Fascism, which though an inferior government system to the world’s best exemplified by The German Third Reich National Socialism, was yet a healthy union of government and industry that served the Italian people. Fascism was a reaction against the dangers of liberalism and communism sweeping across Europe in the 20th century,

    The Italians had more freedoms and rights under Fascism then they do today under parliamentary democracy that prevails in the entire so-called “free world” including Australia. You get meaningless puppet elections and jewish banking/corporation-controlled governments without any real substantive rights and freedoms of the people. Witness how the current pandemic martial law could sweep away all your illusions of “democratic rights”.
