More good work on the self-defence front by Senator Fraser Anning has been met with the usual contempt by the major parties, this time Labor:
Straight into character assassination, invoking Godwin’s law and absolutely no attempt by either Labor Senator to address the right to self-defence or Anning’s argument. Labor might want to look into that so-called non-discriminatory immigration program in relation to crime, particularly in Melbourne. It might also want to explain that if there is not enough crime to warrant self-defence items, why does it now feel the need to arm state police jurisdictions with rifles for general duties Police, as we are now seeing in Melbourne and other capitals?
The further irony of taxpayer-funded public servants lecturing to the public that government will protect them, while enjoying M4-wielding AFP Protective Service officers out the front of parliament house, is just the usual hypocritical hubris.
Meanwhile, in the real world:
Queensland Senator Chisholm might also want to go and talk to Dean Webber about what he was forced to do to protect himself in his own home when Queensland Police refused to help.
Anning previously introduced a motion to legalise non-lethal self-defence items in the wake of the Eurydice Dixon murder and Labor voted it down that time as well.
It’s as clear as day: Labor, Liberal and the Greens have repeatedly demonstrated nothing but contempt for Australians when it comes to self-defence. The right to self-defence is meaningless without access to the means. If Australians can’t protect their own homes, then they are nothing but legally enforced victims – not that Victoria Police Assistant Commissioner Steve Fontana disagrees with that.
Labor and Liberal are both unelectable. Crush them both at the federal election.
