Are You Ready? We want your convoy photos and video

By johnboy 21 August 2011 114

Right now we don’t know where the “Convoy Of No Confidence” (hereafter to be known as CONC) will fit on the spectrum of “Sad Fizzer” to “25 October 1917“.

(The convoyers appear to be hoping for 9 December 1688)

But if you do get photos or video of the proceedings please send them in to images@the-riotact.com . Be sure to include the name you’d like credited.

What’s Your opinion?

“Democracy comes from the barrel of a gun”

Guess who said that?

Then consider the source

Are you referring to the aphorism “Political power grows from the barrel of a gun” by Mao Tse Tung?

I’m pretty sure that democracy never entered into any of The Chairman’s thoughts.

I’ve seen it rendered as “Political power INCLUDING DEMOCRACY grows from the barrel of a gun”, the former East Germany was the Deutsche Democratische Republik, Korea is the Democratic Republic of Korea. I don’t agree but they must expect someone too. It’s curious thing that those who bleat loudest about Democracy (like our convoy riders) are really all about Dictatorship

on the Just Grounds website they are calling the convoy of incompetence a success lol.

I wish they were doing my performance appraisal 🙂

Apparently “…..as soon as I heard Bob Brown call the rally a flop, I knew it had been a success…” is how the hayseeds measured the success of the Convoy of Massive Overblown Self Importance.

I wonder how it would have been measured if Bob had come out and said it was a success ? I guess it would have been a success then as well…….???

So its a success wether or not its a success or not ???…….sounds like logic is not a concept that Abotts Angry People are familiar with.

Same for the “Red Queen, Faggot King” placard that one redneck was holding. Might even have been the same guy…

Yeah I saw that insight on the news. Umm, who the row of trucks is the Faggot King?

Most likely Bob Brown, because The Greens apparently run this country now.

I was at Parliament House so popped over for a quick look – the funniest thing was someone being interviewed to one side and he was going on and on about protecting kids from gay marriage whilst Alan Jones was prancing around on stage behind him.
Now Alannis that is ironic.

Guffaw!

I’ve considered all arguments and will now fight to the death to stand up for real democracy, freedom of speech and less government red tape. I hope one day you all have the guts to fight the easy way out and stand up for what is right for the whole of Australia, not just your interests!….Jaye

What do you do when some of these things are in conflict? For example, if a referendum to remove free speech was supported by the majority of the population, would you still fight for it?

Well with the logistical and plannings skills they’ve demonstrated, it’s a wonder any of them have any business to go home to. I’ve seen better organised things staring up from the bottom of ponds.

It was a bit unimpressive. Big hoo-har, they couldn’t even get the bunting on their trucks, although I hear that most of them managed aussie flags. They’re ruining that flag for the rest of us.

I might steal your pond analogy for future use!

That does not follow. Try again

It makes perfect sense. I made a comment about clouds once – that means I’m scared of clouds.

They just sit up there and stare at you.

The fact that you are even commenting on the convoy of no confidence shows that they scared you and your communist ideals! For once the hard-working Australians (ones that own their own businesses and fund those of you who work for the government!! These people are giving up thousands of $$$ of income to support what they believe in).

I liked the Internets much more in the “olden days” when the people who couldn’t comprehend text or spell were not using it.

The September that never ended.
