In many cases, we have seen very troubling behavior by our police officers. We’ve seen them forcefully keep citizens out of public town meetings and the police stand by while Antifa thugs attacked people in the street. We’ve seen people arrested for not falling into line with mandates that are very questionable legally. We’ve seen businesses shut down and livelihoods destroyed by lousy public health policies. And who was there enforcing these lousy policies? The police. Of course, I understand that they are only doing their jobs and that they are in the really difficult position of having to follow orders or risk suspension or termination, which will often mean the loss of the all-too-valuable pension, which is a very real concern for which I sympathize.
It’s not just in the United States. There have been highly visible cases, like the one in Canada where a church was raided and shut down because it wouldn’t comply with COVID rules, and who was there doing the raiding? Our friends in Law Enforcement. Two hundred of them.
There have been anti-lockdown and anti-mandate protests in many European cities that have been aggressively broken up by police; protests that were not at all the violent riots by BLM that were allowed to go on unabated throughout our country and elsewhere for months.
Finally, probably the most high-profile situation to date is what is going on in Australia right now regarding their truly Orwellian mandates and lockdowns. The police are behaving in an incredibly disturbing manner. This video was recently posted on a story on the Gateway Pundit and shows exactly what is going on Down Under. The video makes it pretty damn clear that these aren’t reluctant officers forced to do their duty but doing so in a caring and responsible way. No, this is a case where these people appear to have been given carte blanche to brutally quash any dissent and go out and crack some skulls. And they appear to be enjoying it.
One cannot help but see Nazi storm troopers in these images, as these officers aggressively and even gleefully strangle and beat unarmed protesters in the street. Their riot gear, in fact, makes me think of the stormtroopers in the Star Wars movies. It’s truly shocking. Women being dragged out of their cars. Men, defenseless on the ground, being kicked in the head.
