Another pro-health professional athlete has been defamed as an “anti-vaxxer” after defending informed consent.

The latest tussle occurred on Instagram when pro-surfer Kelly Slater  defended Australian surf life-saving legend, Trevor Hendy who had voiced opposition to “vaccine” mandates on a “get vaxxed” promotion posted by Summer of Surf.

Slater responded to an analogy used by Australian Ironman champion Matt Poole, who criticised Hendy by comparing not being “vaccinated” with jumping into rip-tides.

Slater told Poole his ‘analogy made no sense’, arguing,

‘If I know the risks (informed consent) and I judge the choice to be one that benefits/hurts me based on the stats and info, and my ability (health), I can choose accordingly. If something happens to me, it’s on me, not on anyone else. Your argument is false equivalence. Apples and oranges.’

Making a distinction between health and medicine, Slater added,

‘This is clearly a disease of the obese, unhealthy, and elderly. If you study the official statistics. And for people saying listen to the doctors, I’m positive I know more about being healthy than 99% of doctors. Most of my COVID info comes from directly doctor friends, many of them in disagreement with the official ‘science.’

The 49-year-old American world surfing champion talked about friends who’d had horrible reactions to the vaccines, writing that his mum was one of those ‘underreported stats.’

Despite a large number of comments from social media users thanking Slater for speaking out, legacy media coverage only drew attention to pats on the back for Poole’s pro-CCP-19 vax evangelism.

Fox Sports (apparently more dazzled by Poole’s girlfriend Tammy Hembrow, than COVID facts) labelled Slater’s comments a “bizarre vaccine rant,” painting the surfing legend as “coming from nowhere to continue to promote his so-called pro-choice agenda.”

RT news wasn’t much different. They band wagoned the “anti-vaxxer rant” tune, but to their credit, RT at least gave Slater a fair hearing.

7News was more subdued, but mocked Slater, ripping the context out of his comments by failing to first acknowledge Slater’s reasoned argument. Secondly by failing to uphold his distinction between knowledge about health, and knowledge about medicine.

Yahoo Sport joined them calling Slater’s reply to Poole, “slightly ridiculous,” while accusing him of “pushing Coronavirus misinformation.”

Far-left political activists, “Right-Wing Watch” added Kelly to their list of “anti-vaxxer” ‘worst offenders,’ telling Kelly to line-up, goosestep in unison and salute, ‘instead of adding to the polarisation of the vaccine debate.’

Of the many who agreed with Slater, one user said, ‘Informed consent, not coercion.’

Another wrote, ‘I liked it better when we weren’t forced to take an experimental drug to do normal, everyday things. It’s a shame everywhere I look I’m being bullied to do something I don’t want to do; and [I’m] a little upset I’m seeing it here too.’

In response, Summer of Surf clarified “not forcing, just asking for everyone’s help.”

Slater’s replies received no legacy media love, so here’s a sampling to good not to be shared:

This isn’t the first clash Slater’s had with his peers or the COVID priesthood in the media.

The Daily Mail claimed in June that Slater was forced to defend himself when users reacted to a comment on an unrelated CCP-19 article about a ‘father who was proud after stinking up a toilet,’ on Australian satire site The Betoota Advocate.

Slater simply wrote, “Dads have no shame.”

As DM recounted, this was enough for one man to write,

‘’Aren’t you the fella who shares anti-vax nonsense on social media? Seems like you have no shame either.”

Slater fired back,

‘Why does this account always end up with these triggered, b***y people who can’t take a joke? And second, I’m not anti vax. I’m anti mandating medical procedures.’

He then said,

‘It hasn’t been studied long enough to know long term cons. A friend’s dad also died a couple days after getting it from blood clots, so there’s that. Think I’ll wait for the antibodies naturally if I get covid.’

This tripped a pack attack with haters rolling in to mock, smear and ridicule the surfing legend, because “science.”

Key findings about COVID published by Sydney University in June, appear to back Slater’s defence of informed choice.

‘Overall population-wide risk of death after the diagnosis of a COVID-19 infection was 4 percent.’

In other words, a 96% likelihood a person will survive, with a 4% chance of dying.

Additionally,

‘COVID-19 mortality risk was 40 percent for the elderly (90+), 10 times the population-wide risk.

  • 32 percent COVID-19 mortality risk for people in their 80s
  • 14 percent COVID-19 mortality risk for people in their 70s
  • 3 percent COVID-19 mortality risk for people in their 60s
  • Less than 1 percent COVID-19 mortality risk for people in their 50s or younger.’

What’s the point of forcing a medical procedure onto the public?

This data raises a number of questions about the purpose of “no jab, no job,” alongside lockdowns and segregating the population along a vaxxed, unvaxxed line.

This suggests that inept governments, acting on the “health” advice of bureaucratic “health advisors,” are deliberately making us unhealthy in the name of protecting public health.

The facts do not support the fantasy or the fear porn.

Public health orders, are creating a public health crisis.

Australian Tennis Legend: “Government Doctors Are on the Payroll, Be Wary of What They Preach”

It appears that some think Philippians 4:19 reads: “My government will supply all my needs according to its riches and glory.”

What it actually says is: “My God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”

There’s a big difference.

Daddy government does not equal Father God.

The New South Wales Premier, Dominic Perrottet would no doubt agree with this observation.

In a 14-minute interview with SkyNews host Alan Jones, the Premier declared,

“As a [classical] Liberal, the less government intervention the better.”

Posed as a question, Jones reminded the Premier of support he’d given over a decade ago for Winston Churchill’s position opposing

‘The socialist model [as] the equal distribution of poverty not wealth. [As well as opposing] plans for more social engineering more welfare handouts and the continual obsession with our rights at the expense of our responsibilities.’

The new Premier acknowledged how “most people don’t want to live off the state,” and how “they want freedom to succeed. Freedom to prosper.”

 “These are fundamental values that I believe in,” he said. 

Perrottet then qualified this by signalling how Government intervention in times of crisis, such as COVID-19, are the exception.

He asserted,

“There will always be a role for the state to support those who are vulnerable, so that no one slips through the gaps, and that’s where the state intervention should be.”

Perrottet repeatedly said he advocates opening up New South Wales “as quickly, and as safely as possible.”

The Premier also congratulated the State for getting “vaccinated”. He failed to acknowledge how his government’s dogged totalitarian obsession with “no jab, no job” mandates met “vaccination” quotas.

He alluded to who was behind the latter, stating his government did “what the health teams asked [them] to do, and followed that advice.”

The current roadmap, Perrottet said, was designed by ex-Deputy Premier, (and Berejiklian chief CCP-19 head-kicker) John Barilaro on the advice of government health officials.

In other words, a greater easing of restrictions in NSW will come when forced “vaccinations” push the current stat up over the 80% quota set by unelected health bureaucrats.

Nodding at a strong commitment to opening the State, Perrottet noted 20 months’ worth of “sacrifices” made by the people of NSW; reasserting, “as I’ve said before, people born in this nation are born free.”

While there’s a lot to like about the new Premier, the people of New South Wales would be well justified in showing extreme caution.

For example, this week he presided over New South Wales becoming the first state in Australia to enforce segregation, demand employers fire staff on medical grounds, and discriminate against those they provide services to.  

On a personal note.

My daughter was given three working days to get vaccinated or face unemployment.

Another family member faces being forced into unemployment and denied the right to her qualification after years of hard work trying to attain it.

In addition, another close relative was told this morning that his regular meeting with a mental health professional would have to be suspended until the 1st of December. The date some of the “public health” mandates are alleged to expire.

(He may also face setbacks in his battle with mental health problems. All in the name of “public health orders.”)

Another faces the “convert or die” dilemma before being fired for non-compliance.

Why? Because, contrary to the data showing that the age group they belong to is more likely to be hit by lightning than it is of being hospitalised or dying of COVID-19, they land in the “unvaccinated” class.

Regardless of what the propaganda slogans preach, none of these people have a choice.

“Get the vax or face the axe” decrees are the equivalent of being told to do the slave master’s bidding, or face the slave master’s whip.

Where there is no freedom to say “no,” choice does not exist.

To be fair, Dominic Perrottet inherited a regime governed by policies dominated by unelected health bureaucrats, not the voice of the people.

The new Premier is undoubtedly stuck between a rock and a hard place.

Perrottet inherited a government obsessed with appeasing anti-freedom, and pro-lockdown worm tongues, both from the Left and within their “COVID crisis” media hungry, health bureaucrat team. 

The big Perrottet plus, is, that by all appearances he’s a far-sight better than Victoria’s Dictator of Doom, Daniel Andrews.

Reasserting governance of, by and for, the people, Perrottet made the right move in sideling government health advisor Dr. Kerry Chant.

Outside this, for now, his words only exist as nice, empty gestures.

Nice words and reassuring platitudes are welcome, but the NSW Premier needs to act on them.

Only a fool would think the words temporary government program are not an oxymoron.

For instance, while the NSW State of Emergency expires on 25th March 2022, contrary to the December 1stfreedom for everyone” party-line, current public health orders do not have an official expiry date.

Parnell McGuinness in the SMH explained,

‘Legally, this never has to end. As long as the state and territory chief health officers who compose the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee deem COVID-19 an “unacceptable risk to public health” the emergency powers under which Australia is living can go on indefinitely.’ 

In sum, PHO legislation was changed last year. Meaning that PHOs have no provisional boundaries, checks or balances. This hands unelected bureaucrats, like Chief Health Officer’s the absolute power to enforce PHO’s indefinitely. (See section 2.16, p.25 Subsection 2B)

Perrottet has the chance to be a Ron DeSantis. To follow or borrow his example, leading, not only NSW, but also Australia away from its COVID communist trajectory.

In order to do this Perrottet must end both vaccine mandates and vaccine passports.

Perrottet should ditch the mad, then follow the few, on behalf of the brave.
