Before reading these t's&c's, most probably would have dismissed all of this as some sort of wild conspiracy theory. But when it comes to TikTok and Chinese Communist Party, turns out the difference between a conspiracy theory and the truth is around about 5 minutes.

Victorians can't stomach the lunatic fringe, and their deranged lies
Fact check: The Lunatic Fringe won Melbourne, Prahran, Brunswick and Richmond in a "greenslide."

Indeed, how dare a govt try to protect its electorate.
Disgraceful how low they have sunk.
Were you there when Dan Andrews circumvented the Constitution under bogus "emergency powers" to shut interstate borders, forced you to stay indoors for 23 hours a day and prohibited you from travelling further than 5km from your home?
Were you there when he forced an unscientific, irresponsible, one-size-fits-all "no jab no job" policy on workers without any consideration to their health and family medical history, even when other governments around the world had long dropped such measures?
Were you there when Dan Andrews was so concerned about "protecting your safety" that people didn't get to see their own parents buried, weren't able to enter hospitals to see their own children being born, and mass-missed cancer appointments?
Yes, Dan Andrews was so concerned about "protecting the health" of you and your electorate that he was more than willing to punish you physically, mentally and financially to protect it.

Also, if you define "progressive" by finding ways to subvert national security to sell off Victoria under mass infrastructure projects to the Chinese Communist Party (Belt & Road initiative), then yes, I suppose he is "progressive."

Japanese aren't cruel to animals.
Are you living in a bubble? Visit any regional festival or amusement park and laugh and applaud like the locals at the monkey with a leash around its neck being forced to jump through hoops. Drop in to your local dog run during the middle of summer and fawn over how cute the dogs are in their fashionable hats and pet jackets as they hyperventilate in their unnatural garb. Go to Taiji during their dolphin drives and watch how they're slaughtered. Or join the whalers in harpooing whales and, as they slowly bleed to death, justifying it because "Japanese culture."
Add to this their outdated methods of dealing with animal enroachment and yes, Japan as a society in general are cruel to animals, whether they intend to be or not.

Let me guess, you are vegan. This is a wild animal, and often times they need to be culled
Great, the assumption game. I wonder how many we could make about you? I'm not vegan and that shouldn't have anything to do with this cyclical response to dealing with animal encroachment from a so-called developed nation that needs to hold itself to a higher standard.
I agree there are certain animals that need to be culled, which is why I support sustainable hunting in places like Hokkaido where the overpopulation of yezo sika deer can have devastating consequences on ecological structure.
because they come into areas where people are living and cause damage and sometimes injury and death.
So they need to be stabbed to death because they should know better? Spoiler alert: they don't, hence the argument for tranquilization and relocation like any modern, morally developed nation does.

People injured by a panicked, distressed wild boar? A reasonable response would be to tranquilize and relocate it. A third-world immoral response would be for some pencil-neck from city hall to maximize its suffering by slashing at it with a sharp blade.
The character of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated. This just shows how behind Japan is in its moral progress.

This must be so frustrating for Western feminists who decry the so-called lack of opportunities for women in Japan. "Why are only 1% of women in (insert employment role here)?!" etc etc.
Statistics such as these suggest, perhaps, Japanese women just aren't interested.

Big Pharma and governments need to be held accountable for their handling of the pandemic and assisting them with blocking non-FDA-approved drugs that were clearly shown to be working, to push a vaccine-only solution at all costs and to curtail and play down anything else deliberately.
The vaccines largely failed, as they predicted to do by virologist Dr Geert Vanden Boorche when, more than 2 years ago, he warned WHO not to vaccinate everyone but to only focus on the elderly and those with severe comorbidities.
The latest death tolls are evidence that our public health officials did not follow the science and worse, doubled down on pushing a vaccine-only response which should never have been the only method of attacking covid.
The data continues to roll in as it always has been right from the start:
Median age of a covid death is 83.1 years of age;
Natural immunity outlasts vaccine by more than 3 times the efficacy duration, the latter according to Pfizer themselves, begins waning at 3 months;
Recent study shows heart inflammation at the rate 1 in 43 in vaccinated teenagers;
FDA wanted 75 years to release Pfizer trial data;
Pfizer cut the trial period short and removed 1000's from the study with no explanation;Low Vitamin D levels associated with a 4x's the higher death rate. 63% of those with severe covid outcomes had low Vitamin D levels.

The reality is, the Left or the Right aren’t going to save you but will only further enslave you to this fabricated paradigm that serves corrupted power over anything else.
Why your continued belief in authority as we roll from crisis to crisis proves and highlights this… along with your conditioned bias that continues to sit there playing sides and the blame game as those crises roll out.
The truth is… Any person that says this side is doing this or that while the other isn’t is under full blown mind control, and it’s that deluded ignorance within that is your one and only true enemy as it manipulated, preyed upon and hijacked by power.
Put simply… you are the primary problem on this planet as you believe in their confected stories and don’t look for real solutions and the growth of all, and especially the systems that govern our lives.

Going strong on a total of 0 vaccines and 0 boosters. Getting Covid was the equivalent to the mildest of any sore throat I've ever had. Meanwhile, after contracting the virus, my vaccinated and boosted acquaintances suffered symptoms far worse than I and the handful of others I know who chose to prioritize their health and natural immunity. Must be a coincidence.

Anybody who questions the mainstream narrative coming from the Chinese media is immediately labelled a misinformation agent.
The Chinese Communist Party puts a gag on all medical and associated medical practitioners by threatening them with punitive actions if they don't stick to the official narrative on vaccinations, masks, and various lockdown measures.

Of course, all of this started with the Haiti Massacre of 1804, when Jean-Jacques Dessalines ordered the indiscriminate bloody massacre of all white Haitians, despite the majority of whom being openly in opposition to the rule of King Louis XIV and highly sympathetic to the anti-slavery movement.
Good luck finding any of that in any modern woke-plagued history books, but regardless, for the nation that still worships Dessalines as some sort of noble hero, such utter calamity should come as no surprise.

How many of those 68 deaths are attributed to "of" Covid and not "with". Apparently, it’s OK for the government to conflate cases admitted to hospital with COVID and cases admitted because of COVID to “prove” how devastating COVID is.
Case in point, you break a leg, go to the hospital and get tested, you test positive for COVID but didn’t know you had it.
= you were hospitalized due to COVID.
You develop acute sepsis/go to ICU
= you are now in ICU due to COVID.
You pass away from sepsis
= you are now classified as a COVID death.
Misrepresentation, cherry picking, making claims without a valid reference source or citation and spinning the narrative are all used by the authorities. How hard is it to wake up and just move on?
