The news events of February 4 2021 were a little bit extraordinary along the Covid Plandemic timeline and ominous for democracy in Australia. MP Craig Kelly came under fire for presenting an alternative medical opinion to Covid in association with Celebrity Chef Pete Evans.
Regardless of people’s views on COVID, the career-destroying hammer delivered to Pete Evans and Craig Kelly is a somber reminder that Democracy in Australia is all but dead.
Of note is that while Pete Evans’s views which are popular have been rubbished by all media, they consistently fail to present the views expressed in the 90-minute podcast which has vanished from social media pages and is not linked in any of the reporting. Also of note is that the ABC relegated the story to an opinion/analysis piece, the ABC which once followed its Charter of fair and balanced reporting has become a rogue broadcaster.
The Labor frontbencher slammed Mr Kelly as a “taxpayer-funded nong” who needs to shut up.
“The government is spending $24 million on a campaign telling people to get vaccinated, and we’ve got a taxpayer-funded nong running around telling people not to,” Ms Plibersek said.
She said her mum lived in Mr Kelly’s electorate and she didn’t want her exposed to people who refused to get vaccinated.
“I don’t want them going to the shops, getting in contact with people who’ve refused to be vaccinated because their local MP is spreading conspiracy theories on the internet. He needs to shut up.”
Within a short space of time MP is dragged before the PM and we witness a jaw dropping backflip.
In a statement, Mr Kelly has now confirmed his meeting with the Prime Minister.
“The Prime Minister reinforced the importance of ensuring public confidence in the Government’s vaccine strategy,’’ Mr Kelly said.
“I agreed to support the Government’s vaccination rollout which has been endorsed by medical experts.
“I have always sought to support the success of our nation’s public health response during the pandemic.
“I believe that the spread of misinformation can damage the success of our public health response during the pandemic.
The rage against MP Kelly and Pete Evans continues and yet the content of their claims nor any content or links to the 90 minute podcast are made available. We, the public must trust the rhetoric and are seemingly not entitled to hear the views of popular and prominent Australians that are speaking out.
What caused the sudden backflip after the dressing down of Craig Kelly MP? This we dont know at this stage as the story unfolds and we bear witness to a historical crackdown of free speech in Australia.
