The Great Australian Awakening shakes LNP’s political wasteland

Part of the crowd at Broadbeach on Saturday. A rally in May at the same location attracted a fraction of this crowd.
Placards like this brought cheers from those looking on as the march moved through Broadbeach.

A profound and pertinent message at the rally.

THOUSANDS of anti-vaccine mandate demonstrators flooded the Gold Coast on Saturday, filling up a local park and causing a traffic jam reaching into nearby suburbs. The Millions March Against Vaccine Mandates and Passports attracted an estimated 10,000 or more to Broadbeach – ten times the size of similar rallies midway through the year.

The local MPs and their supporters from the LNP heartland were noticeably absent. It would have struck terror into them and their political handlers when the thousands cheered speeches by One Nation senators Pauline Hanson and Malcolm Roberts.

The senators ripped into the Labor-Coalition political duopoly of Canberra that had recently united to vote against Senator Hansen’s constitutionally-based bill to outlaw vaccine mandates and passports, in sharp contradiction to Scott Morrison’s claim that he did not support mandates.

Gold Coast is the home of some of Scott Morrison’s pet federal MPs – Home Affairs Minister Karen Andrews (McPherson), Employment, Workforce, Skills, Small and Family Business Minister Stuart Robert and backbenchers Bert Van Manem (Forde) and Angie Bell (Moncrieff).

Some months back Andrews, one of the many Liberal lefties along with Bell, bragged about deporting so-called “far right” UK activist Katie Hopkins from Australia after Hopkins joked on social media about greeting workers delivering food to her room “naked with no face mask”.

Andrews called Ms Hopkins’ comments “appalling” and a “slap in the face” for Australians in lockdown. “Personally, I’m very pleased she’ll be leaving,” she told her friends at the ABC. Strange how Andrews wasn’t able to see the dirty backroom deals between her boss ScoMo and the premiers to viciously lock down Australians on the basis of so-called “medical advice” they have hidden from the public.

And then there’s the collection of ten state LNP seat warmers from Currumbin to Coomera and one very junior Labor MP in the seat of Gaven, who in her first term miraculously inherited a double ministerial portfolio – Environment and the Great Barrier Reef and Science and Youth Affairs.

This complacent political establishment and their media cheer squad want Australians to believe that the mandates are simply what’s required in “the new normal” and Aussies can just get on with life and take part in the usual two-party election charades.

But these career politicians had better be watching their own butts and thinking seriously about their future jobs. Hanson and Roberts had the bulk of the crowd behind them. “An incredible day on the Gold Coast for the Millions March Against Mandatory Vaccines protest. Moving to see so many in a crowd all united against government control and abuse,” Sen. Roberts commented later.

A few days earlier Murdoch’s local LNP cheer squad at the Gold Coast Bulletin reported police as threatening $4000 fines against protesters going out on the streets. As it turned out, the cops had a great day out, chatting among themselves in the background, enjoying the cool sea breezes while one of their own in a fiery address, related his reasons for quitting the service.

An initial police refusal to allow the march on the streets was dropped. Even they could see the writing on the wall.

Islamic Yanner a disgrace to the Aboriginal race

Yanner nearly jailed for an attack on a woman in 1997

Aboriginal activist Murrandoo Yanner yesterday verbally abused One Nation leader Pauline Hanson accusing her of being a racist and telling her she was not welcome at the indigenous art show she visited in Cairns.

Yanner, whose Christian name is Jason, comes from the Gulf community of Doomagee near Burketown and like Hanson is no stranger to controversy.

Indigenous industry sources have told Cairns News Yanner converted to Islam about 10 years ago which explains his vile attack.

Hanson laughed it off, later releasing a Facebook clip asking Yanner to stand with her against the corruption in various land councils and in government.

Yanner is regarded as a thug among some of his own people and his outburst will win him no friends within the wider Aboriginal community and certainly none at all in the white community.

A Traditional Owner and elder from Cairns called Yanner a “…disgrace, and our community will not tolerate this attack on a woman.”

Yanner was given a suspended jail sentence by a Mt Isa court over his role in a vicious pub brawl. The Court of Appeal found Yanner’s sentence should be increased, ordering he be jailed for 18 months, but wholly suspended the sentence for a period of four years.

The Attorney General had appealed a Mt Isa District Court sentence in which Yanner was placed on community-based orders.

However, in a split decision, one of the three appeal court judges, Chief Justice Paul de Jersey, found Yanner should actually serve time in jail – recommending an 18-month sentence suspended after six months, with an operational period of four years.

“There is no doubt in my mind that Murrandoo Yanner should be actually imprisoned,” Justice de Jersey said in his written judgment.

“His substantial episode of unprovoked vicious and brutal thuggery involved as many as four innocent victims, people who were thereby both physically injured and emotionally traumatised.”

Yanner and his young brother, Bruce Lee Yanner, 21, were involved in the fight outside the Burketown Hotel in May 1997. Yanner had pleaded guilty in the Mt Isa District Court to three charges of assault causing bodily harm and one of assault causing bodily harm in company, over attacks on a woman, a Telstra worker and a male nurse.
