A draconian new Covid-19 law gives Australian authorities the power to arrest coronavirus “conspiracy theorists” if it’s thought they may commit a crime in the future.
The new COVID-19 Omnibus (Emergency Measures) bill, created by the Victoria State Parliament last week, gives local authorities the power to detain people who refuse to self-isolate as well as “conspiracy theorists”, which is anyone who now disagrees with the official line, and anyone deemed to be at risk of spreading COVID-19 negligently.
A government spokesman told The Age that the measures “could be applied to 'conspiracy theorists' who refuse to self-isolate or to severely drug-affected or mentally impaired people.”
Those detained will be held in newly created quarantine facilities.
“If there is one thing that terrifies increasingly tyrannical governments, it’s a loss of control of the narrative, which is why the Australian government is getting a jump start on curbing any so-called “conspiracy theorists” daring to spread information that questions the fear-mongering being used to keep Aussie citizens under lock and key,” reports Zero Hedge.
As we have previously documented, Police have the power to enter people’s homes without a warrant and also snatch children. Earlier this month, a pregnant woman was arrested in front of her children for posting about an anti-lockdown protest on Facebook. Some 80 other 'offenders' received police visits to 'check their thinking' and we also showed how a news reporter, reporting on a anti-lockdown rally, was violently arrested and detained by Victorian Police. Australia has become the most authoritarian state in the developed world when it comes to the draconian enforcement of COVID rules.
