I was sitting on the pavement this evening, in Melbourne, with my hat upturned in front of me and a few cultural messages to spread, when a young guy named Benny sat next to me informing me that I was wearing an amazing Wu-Tang jacket.
I had no idea what Wu-Tang meant, so I looked them up online to find out why that was important to Benny.
Then I wrote this rap.:
“I got caught short and lost in rorts,
cos dumb cops thought my brain was nought.
But the joke’s on them cos I’m showing men
and women too that I stick true
They’d bust us,
but trust this please,
all women and men,
I will win!
I will win!”
My first day in court, for upsetting the police by standing up for an Aboriginal guy, is next Friday.
Aussie country singer, Wonni Slim, pictured above, doesn’t just stand up against the Victorian police state with his song “Roll Out The Rubber Bullets”.
He is on the front lines outside Parliament House speaking the truth as often as he can:
The young police officer, whose out of control unaccountability Wonni mentions in the above clip, has already admitted his guilt with his face:
When the bad cops get away with deliberate crimes or inexperienced cops make mistakes and commit crimes against the public, then life is harder for everyone except those who benefit from dangerous government and police overreach.
On this day in 1861, during the American Civil War, passionate anti slavery campaigner Julia Ward Howe wrote The Battle Hymn Of The Republic. Today I take some of the words of that song, modernising a few of them, and then combine them with images of an Australian Christian woman who regularly stands up against tyranny on the streets of Melbourne.
This anonymous woman is one of the many stalwarts of Melbourne’s freedom movement.
Again and again, I have seen her bring both passionate defiance of tyranny and devotion to Her Lord Jesus Christ to the streets of Melbourne. In this image, she does not look forward to the false promises of a clearway from a Socialist Left police state. She looks to what comes to her from the past, from her faith in Jesus Christ and what He contributed to Western Heritage to give her and so many His followers so much genuine moral strength.
This shows Word Art images of good freedom fighters in Melbourne, Victoria, with whom I have been able to do small good things here this year. 2022, against a Socialist Left tyrant, but who were not able to stay united against a common enemy of freedom.
These are good people who have divided against each other in too many ways too often to unite and win.
100 years ago today, Benito Mussolini’s fascist followers marched on Rome on their way to totalitarian power.
Exactly 18 years later, at 3 a.m. on October 28, in 1940, Mussolini demanded that his axis forces be allowed to enter Greek territory. When the Greek Prime Minister Metaxas courageously stood up to the dictator, the Greek people took to the streets shouting “OXI” ….. meaning “NO”.
Likewise, in modern Australia a corrupt government which trashed human rights is being rejected by a freedom movement with the moral strength and determination to win.
Even people who genuinely want to respect the Anzacs and the lessons of history and save us from repeating horrible mistakes of past totalitarianisms, sometimes tell stories which might not be 100% true.
In the following film clip, I believe that there are one or two historical mistakes which would not be there in a perfect world.
However I am sure that Aidan Mclindon’s intentions are truly honourable and the conclusions he draws are still worthwhile.
I hope the purists are not offended if the battle description by Aidan is indeed not entirely historically accurate.
Lest We Forget.
Fighting totalitarian tyrants like DMA is very, very difficult.
Freedom is not an impossible to achieve perfect utopia. But it is where human beings can grow to function at their best.
Free people make mistakes and, at their best, learn from those mistakes and don’t repeat them. I include Aidan McLindon in this category.
