Aussie comedians skewer pandemic protestors
Aussie comedians have skewered anti-lockdown protestors who stormed Sydney’s streets on the weekend.
The video, posted in TikTok opens with comedian Greta Lee Jackson saying: “Hi, I’m Greta Lee Jackson, and I didn’t go to the protests. But these people did – and seeing their bravery and determination to fight for our freedom is really getting us through.”
The video then scrolls through comedians posing as doctors, nurses and more, offering their satirical take on what the protests mean to them.
“I’ve been holding the hands of people as they die, because their families aren’t allowed to visit them, because the disease is so infectious. But a small price to pay, because these guys don’t want to wear a mask,” says one.
“I care for vulnerable people, and I thought their lives were important. Turns out the right to fire twirl is more important,” says another.
Never a truer word said in jest, right?
The video has been well-received on Tik Tok, and has thousands of comments, too.
One reads: “careful, their IQs may not be high enough to process the information and think they’re being praised.”
Another says, “please tell me this is an ad and it will be everywhere…please…”
Why not watch the video and tell these 'freedom fighters' what you think of their actions?
