So self defeating.. it's not rocket science, but obtuse is and obtuse does! 🙄 people who act irrationally without thinking of the consequences .. can we get a testimony from them that covid is real or get a waiver from these protesters that they do not want treatment when they get infected! so as not to burden anymore our medical frontliners 😠

COVIDIOTS MurdochRiots MurdochRoyalCommission They don’t believe virus exists, so are they faking that they are sick? funny how there were no cases from all the BLM protests. Once again this virus is smarter than the average bear. I'm calling bulls&it on this article especially from the ABC. Absolute Bull Crap - that what is stands for now
Next he'll be on an advert to get the jab 🤣 But of course these people will be at home taking Vitamins and Invermectin. That should see them off Depends how sick they are. If very sick they may well be tested before they need their breathing support. But are they sick?

Predictable. But, the science that they demonstrate against will be used to help out those that get sick enough to use our science based healthcare system. Sky News has done a terrific job gaslighting these people. Look at this agenda the abc props up Jesus Christ There'll be dozens more Who’d have thought this is possible. Isn’t denial the best vaccine?
“The demonstrations have been widely condemned by all sides of politics”. Um, no, they haven’t. Too many LNP apologists paid lip service but not n the mildest terms, then used the word “but”. And you have Kelly and Canavan et al urging them on Wow Supreder event already? Or we ll wait until 100 of them get it to confirm that
Still no superspreading? Funny because weren't we told you can't get covid at protests? Like the last one last year that resulted in a major outbreak two weeks later...interesting Ha Ha
‘New high’: Victoria records 847 new COVID-19 casesAnd provided a sportsperson to inform us at the Presser. The fools who protested against being magnestised from the jab are clearly to blame for the spike. So selfish and counter productive. If only morrison did what every other first world leader did and purchase enough vaccines. He failed and Victoria pays the price. dismal failure
Feel for all the break baskets out there doing it tough 'The demonstrations have been widely condemned by all sides of politics' except they haven't. Lot of 'buts' from the LNP. Wow FANTASTIC news , virus has last say ,one way of getting sense into small minds The MurdochRiots keep delivering. Read the article. He didn’t get it at the rally. It’s now been 8 days since the start of the protests & there is so far no spread among those who attended.
Please reasure the people who are doing the right thing & not acting like baffoons with these protests that this bloke is at the back of the que for any hospital medical attention. I find it hard to believe a tradie protesting about the Jab would even consider going and getting tested.... something smells fishy covidproof
There'd be more but they wouldn't get tested. And hundreds of others who didn't go to the protest also have COVID. Where is the evidence that lockdowns are effective or a long term solution?
