Arrested for wearing the Australian flag on Australia Day

If you played “What insane display of wokedom will occur on Australia Day Bingo” on 26 January and drew the card with “Someone will get arrested for wearing the Australian flag”, then congratulations. You just won the jackpot.

Come down and collect you prize.

See for yourself below:

Now it is true that the man who was arrested has, in the past, been more than a trouble maker. Some have described him in colloquial Aussie fashion as a “bit of a dickhead”.

I tend to agree.

After all, donning an Aussie flag and parading around the centre of Melbourne screams bogan more than patriot, to say nothing of the fact that it also demonstrates that this man thumbs his nose at the protocols regarding the use of the Australian National Flag.

While this man is often at counter-Antifa protests, I get the impression that he and those he confronts both furiously agree that violence and threats and thuggery are an acceptable way of imposing their views on society. This man has certainly not been afraid to threaten others in the past.

While the phrase gets thrown around with gay abandon, this man is probably deserving of being labelled a ‘far right activist’. He admits that he started out in the neo-Nazi movement. In more recent times he’s admitted to lying about meeting conservative politicians in order to gain media attention and to hurt the Liberal Party during the last election campaign.

All in all, whatever side he is on, it’s not mine.

But all of that is also irrelevant.

He was wearing an Australian flag. And then he was arrested because the ‘Invasion Day’ protest was approaching.

And this is the problem: if the shoe was on the other foot and a lone Aboriginal trouble-maker was waiting to confront the Australia Day parade, does anyone really believe that the police would have shown consistency and arrested that person?

We all know the answer to that: no.

Instead he would have been protected. And then interviewed by the ABC.

And the most ironic part of it all? The very law that the Victorian police used to order this man to move on and then arrest him for failing to do so was criticised by Liberty Victoria for the ‘distressingly broad’ impact it would have on Aboriginal people:

Such powers are inevitably ‘prone to be applied in a discriminatory and disproportionate way against some of our most vulnerable community members, including people who are homeless, young people, Aboriginal people and people experiencing mental health issues’.

Strangely, Liberty Victoria has not had a single word to say about the way this law was used against a lone man draped in a flag counter-protesting the ‘Invasion Day’ march.

Nor have they said anything about the fact that this same law states that the Victorian police have no powers to move a person on if they are merely demonstrating or ‘speaking, bearing or otherwise identifying with a banner, placard or sign or otherwise behaving in a way that is apparently intended to publicise the person’s view about a particular issue.”

So it seems that the Victorian police broke the law to arrest a man on Australia Day. For wearing an Australian flag.

In a separate incident, Avi Yemeni was also arrested in Melbourne by the Victorian police on Australia Day, as you can see below:

He intends to fight the Victorian police. I’ll be watching with interest and I certainly hope that he wins.

  1. Personally I don’t give a rat’s what is done to bits of rag made in Asia and called ‘the Australian Flag”. Anyone so obsessed with it posturing ‘and what it means’ is suffering delusions. It’s a piece of coloured rag…that’s all.Instead start fixing the problems this nation faces, the lies, the conspiracies, the debt, the perversion and so on instead of prancing about over a flag. That’s the sort of idiot behaviour brain diseased Americans go on with…how about we just become neighbourly Aussies and re\cover Australia from the Aliens?

  2. What a joke , how do they expect a multicultural nation to get along as one when the government and police are going out of their way to discriminate and segregated the communities. It’s seems like a master plan to keep Austrailians divided because Its easier to control a divided population ,they would be quaking in their boots if this really was one nation with everyone getting along ,maybe we should change the countries name to Austmerica because they seem to use the same underhanded ways to control their citizens.

  4. “And this is the problem: if the shoe was on the other foot and a lone Aboriginal trouble-maker was waiting to confront the Australia Day parade, does anyone really believe that the police would have shown consistency and arrested that person?”

    And if he had been arrested, the backlash would have been unbelievable, maybe savage, and possibly leading to demonstrations supporting him.

    But in Victoria (and as a Victorian, this is very sad to say), it seems one rule for the left, a different one for the rest.
