  1. I have to say, Pavlou is a hard guy to like. Not saying he wasn’t treated appallingly by an appalling organisation but he does seem to be loving the notoriety.

  2. kid earned lot of respect from so many people and I will be shocked if no political party approached him to join ranks. Sustainable Aus should do it as his views are probably inline with SA policies.

  3. Drew’s experience is interesting… by Straya’s say rather muted standards of ‘fighting for liberty’. And good on Drew. We have 1 guy who gets it.
    But when you compare and contrast this fairly pedestrian fight here with US experience of ‘fighting for liberty’ vs Dems cancel culture…. that is on a complete and other scale. Also interesting when you consider MB has staked its ground on the side of the Dems who are the authoritarians.

    • Pavlou is a left (far left by your standards I’d imagine) “S.J.W.” whose motivation is defending human rights. Were he gaining notoriety for his views on pretty much any other such issues except the one involving China (eg: our own treatment of refugees), probably half the people here calling him a hero would be sneering at him in contempt. You do not have to spend much time in his Twitter and Facebook feeds to figure this out.

      Both the Democrats and Republicans are authoritarian. However, Republicans – especially Trump – are far more so, and with regards to far more important things (an obvious and current example being a substantial stepping-up of the usual baseline efforts towards voter suppression by trying to completely delegitimise and deny postal votes (except for elites, obviously)). They are most certainly not, “fighting for liberty”.

      • See I would agree with you again @smithy, i think he did happen to fall into a good cause here and wasnt by design. But again happy to contradict you cause I can be generous whether left, right or centre. To that end you should catch up on the news and read more widely. If Trump was kinda any way near the authoritarian you pretend he is, why is he respecting the Gov and Mayors of Blue states? Why is it Republicans are being attacked while Biden Harris Pelosi the Squad are all promoting civil unrest? And you clearly arent up with news on voter mail-in fraud which Dems have admitted to.
        @smithy just write your snide remarks and stay in your warped news bubble. Its predictable.

        • See I would agree with you again @smithy, i think he did happen to fall into a good cause here and wasnt by design

          It is absolutely by design. But his design is advocating for human rights not fighting against “China” – and advocating for human rights is absolutely a good cause.

          Voter fraud is insignificant in the US. It was in previous elections, and it will be in the upcoming one.
          (Note that the integrity of mail-in votes by elites are not in question, only the plebs.)

          @smithy just write your snide remarks and stay in your warped news bubble. Its predictable.

          Now there’s some weapons-grade irony.
