Australia, welcome back among the living.
The protests aren’t even that large. The energy on display isn’t even the result of how many are attending, but who they are spearheaded by — construction workers.
The protests were preceded by threats that anyone who does not vaccinate will be “locked out of the economy”.
Builders account for one-sixth of all workplace deaths in Australia. (Needless to say the remainder falls on farmers, fishermen and forklift drivers — not cops, professors and “public health” parasites.)
To work a job that actually carries risk to life and limb and to then have it shut down by middle-class wankers because there is a flu about… And to then be threatened by the same Zoom classes (many of them fed by your taxpayer dollar) that — unless you take part in the demented virtue-signaling rituals they do — you and your family will starve is quite something. It’s cheeky, insufferably so.
The aspect of Australia’s revolt that is the most glaring is how much this looks like a class war. Because it is. Construction workers rising against the leashed dogs of the Zoom middle class. But actually, it had been a class war all along. Since March 2020 this has been a class war against the working class. A class war from the top against the bottom. A class war to subordinate all society and all life to middle-class neuroticism and demented new religion, and to control, humiliate and push down further into the mud the impious working class if possible. What has changed now is only that the class war has stopped being one-sided as the working class is finally fighting back.
The class war trendy public-sector leftists hoped for in their younger days is here, and it’s against them.
