When the goon squad handcuffed crying, pregnant Zoe Bruhler, in her pyjamas, in her own home and in front of her children, many people were shocked and outraged. How could this happen in Australia?

All too easily.

And it’s getting worse.

Australia has, in just under two years, slid into a once-unimaginable Stasi state. Police snoop on people’s Facebook pages, kick down doors without warrants, smash people’s faces into the ground and arrest journalists. Governments vote themselves dictatorial “emergency powers”, with no end in sight.

For the first time in Australia’s history, our own military is being turned out against us.

Australians once loathed no one so much as the “dobber”. Ever since the convict days, Australians have detested snitches and informers. Now, we snitch on each other by the tens of thousands – and unelected grey bureaucrats tell us not to even talk to each other.

We used to be a free country. Now we’re more like East Germany.

Australians who merely post anti-lockdown information online could face fines of up to $11,000 under a draconian new piece of legislation.

Under the proposal, which is being pushed by the opposition in in New South Wales, protest organizers would be fined a whopping $20,000 and people who attend would be fined $5,500.

However, the law would punish “people sharing information on social media about illegal rallies and inciting others to illegally attend” even more harshly, hitting them with $11,000 fines.

Remember, these are the same politicians who didn’t just encourage BLM protests during lockdown – some of them even joined in.

It’s a tricky little virus, all right, when it can apparently distinguish between a far-left protest and an anti-lockdown one.

The onerous fines are intended to neutralize a protest movement that has grown in recent weeks over New South Wales imposing yet another brutal lockdown on its citizens, which is now being enforced by military occupation of Sydney.

Shadow Police Minister Walt Secord said the massive fines were needed to “throw the book at these idiots who spread misinformation and lies along with the Delta variant.”

That would be the government and the media, then.

It certainly sounds like the Guardians are running scared that the hoi polloi are getting out of control. No wonder the Covid Gestapo are heaping praise on their snitches.

Minister for Police and Emergency Services David Elliott even bragged about how many calls – a total of over 15,000 – had been received from people reporting on others for attending “illegal” protests[…]

The chief health officer of New South Wales even went so far as to tell Australians that they shouldn’t “engage in conversation with each other,” even if they’re wearing masks, in order to reduce the transmission of COVID.

Australian MP Frank Pangallo also recently asserted that unvaccinated people “will need to be controlled and restricted” by authorities.

The Soviets made Pavlik Morozov, who informed on and denounced his family, a cult hero. The Stasi had as many as one in six East Germans informing for them. The Chinese Communist Party wrung out “self-criticisms” and exhaustive lists of associates from their victims.

They were amateurs, compared to the Covid Dictators of Australia.
