The Labor Party Senator for Victoria has threatened and discriminated against a concerned community earlier this week in an article in The Age titled ‘New COVID-19 restrictions will be needed for anti-vaxxers.’

In the article, Ciccone goes on to threaten and discriminate against a community concerned over vaccines manufactured to prevent COVID19 – which currently does not even exist anywhere on earth – and their decision not to partake in a government COVID19 vaccine program.

About 40 years of research led to the introduction of the polio vaccines in the 1950s. The government wants to test and release a vaccine for COVID19 in less than 8 months of discovery of the virus. That in itself is absurd and not to mention reckless and dangerous.

Some of Ciccone’s offensive material is quoted below.

To anti-vaxxers, I have one message: our tolerance for your wilful ignorance is over. We cannot afford, morally or economically, to give any ground to those who choose not to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

Let me be clear. I’m not advocating that we vaccinate people against their will. That would be wrong. We must ensure that the safety of our community is the number one priority. That means that participation in everyday life cannot put others at risk. If you do not want to be vaccinated against COVID-19, you ought to bear the consequences of that decision.

As a community, we should consider to what extent we allow organisations to prevent those who object to being vaccinated against COVID-19 to enter their premises, participate in their activities and, in some circumstances, seek their employment.

For the rest who claim they are conscientious objectors, the excuses don’t stack up anymore. There is too much at stake. I know after writing this my office will be inundated with correspondence from anti-vaccination activists demanding to be heard. For those of you who do contact me, know this. I have no interest in your alternative “facts” or your conspiracy theories.

Your views are fortunately in the minority, and that’s how they will be treated. Today’s media landscape is such that you will probably receive attention for your ill-informed comments, but that doesn’t mean you are right. It just means you have been noticed.

The Victorian Federal Senator admitted he won’t be listening to concerned constituents and has even gone so far as to discriminated against a “minority” as he so eloquently puts it. Does the senator actually expect anyone to vote for people who admittedly do not represent them in parliament?

Like most Australians, the concerned community is made up of taxpayers and voters, so the threat doesn’t come lightly for the people who contribute to society and everyday life in Australia, especially coming from a senator “elected” to represent his constituents.

But Senator Raff Ciccone was never actually elected into the Senate. Ciccone was appointed to the Senate on 6 March 2019 to fill a casual vacancy caused by the resignation of Jacinta Collins.

Ciccone is the son of Italian immigrant parents who arrived in Australia in the 1960s, which may put him in breach of section 44 of our constitution “allegiance to a foreign power” unless he can show otherwise, that he has renounced all foreign privileges and allegiances.

As most Labor Party politicians, Ciccone is a union man who rose up through the ranks of the SDA Union, the same Union that struck a deal with the supermarket giant Coles to underpay its workforce.

His obsession with vaccines and backing big pharmaceutical comes from being a board member of Link Health and Community. And in December of 2017, he served as the organisation’s chair.

Ciccone is married to Dimity Paul, who was once chief of staff to Victorian government minister Adem Somyurek. The same Adem Somyurek recently caught up in a year long investigation for corruption in the Labor Party.

It seems Raff has not attempted to tackle any of the real issues facing the Commonwealth, nor has he addressed the increasing corruption in government that cripples it. He has never motioned to have the pedophile suppression orders removed that protect pedophile politicians, police and members of the judiciary named by Bill Heffernan in 2015.

Raff voted very strongly to increase legal protections of the LGBTI people and voted very strongly for transgender rights, both of which are minority groups. But as conscientious objectors, he offers threats and discrimination.

Ciccone also voted in favour of increasing surveillance powers that breach your privacy, voted in favour of the Paris Climate Agreement where Australia is being taken advantage of by the rest of the world by reducing our industry and making us reliant on foreign manufacturers, and voted in favour of the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme, also reducing our industry.

Not a great track record for the Victorian Senator who admittedly does not represent his constituents. But like most other career politicians, Mr Ciccone seems to only represent his own interests and views whilst adhering to corporate and foreign influence.

A disgraceful corrupt government needs to be jailed victoria and it’s people are not for sale !

    Jennifer · June 18, 2020 at 7:03 am

    We’ve already been sold!

    Lynton Vestey · June 19, 2020 at 10:16 am

    So true.

Tyson phillis · June 18, 2020 at 5:59 am

Anti Vax people are stupid and very selfish, My mother got Rebella while pregnant in 1941 I am the result of that pregnacy, I suffer extreme hearing loss multible heart problems and multible eye problems all because of Rebella so you might say I agree with what the with the senators stance against Anti Vaxers because I do understand what good vaccines do.

    Jen · June 18, 2020 at 7:10 am

    Rubella is a very serious issue and I am sorry your mother was not vaccinated against it. I was vaccinated against it, in high school.

    I want to know why you would just call people stupid and very selfish. I think it’s because of the consequences of rubella. I can understand your wish for vaccines. What you may have missed is that there is a large rising of people against the FORCED nature of untested vaccinations. So they are not necessarily ANTI VAX … they are ANTI FORCED to vax. There is a big difference. The issue is not the vaccination alone, it is the threat of being outcasted and the loss of liberty to choose what is right for ones self. It’s known as Self Determination and it is a basic human right, under the United Declaration of Human Rights. To ridicule people because they are willing to fight for their right to choose is actually ridiculing the UDHR. The second issue in current times about these vaccinations is the rushed, untested, ill-tested and then forced nature of these vaccinations. That should be a concern for everyone. Governments DO get it wrong – look at asbestos, talcum powder, led paint, and many more. MANY people right now are fighting agains the forced nature because the consequences of an ill-formed vaccine could be fatal. There are consequences now to well formed vaccines, so ill formed ones carry even greater risk.

    I do appreciate where you are coming from and I do also hope you can reconsider that people are not ANTI VAX, for the sake of the stance of being Anti VAX, nor are they stupid and nor are they very selfish.

    If there was no discussion of forcing vaccinations, made by many Ministers in the Australian Government, there would not be the uproar about it. Does that make sense? If the government just said they would make a VAX available for anyone who felt they needed protection, a right of “Self Determination”, there would be no fight about it.

    Best wishes, enjoy your VAX – it will be here soon.

      Lynton Vestey · June 19, 2020 at 10:15 am

      Very well said. Not to mention vax damage that has been paid out through court cases. In third world there was no autism until vaccinations. So not all vax is safe.

    Damian French · June 20, 2020 at 1:41 am

    ‘Good vaccines’ being the key word heard!
    Yes, vaccines that have been thoroughly, independently tested and proven to be safe and work. Then, If you wish to take them, go ahead!
    But to force people to take a COVID-19 vaccination against there will is unconstitutional, and it has been stated the there isn’t time to do the appropriate human testing and trials so know guarantee it will be safe…
    I’m sorry you had ill health due to Rubella but I’ve had bad reaction and ill health from Hooping Cough Vaccination at a young age. How ever our views and positions are different, you support forced vaccinations to all out people coming from a place of fear and I say ‘my choice, my body’ ‘you choice, your body’

    Helena · June 20, 2020 at 8:34 am

    Tyson, Rubella is only one of many Vaccines. Since there is no ability sue Vaccine Companies they also feel they do not need to do the Safety Study tests which are not done so they are experimenting on us which is why l am a EX VAXXER after many hours of research. and writing FOI’s to the Government Health Department Ms Helena Smirnis P.O. Box 111 RICHMOND VIC 3121
    Email: Dear Ms Smirnis
    I refer to your request dated 2 May 2020 under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the FOI Act) and subsequent correspondence between you and the TGA in which the scope of your request was clarified as being for access to the following documents:
    “One Independent Safety Study Test that the TGA relied upon, which was used to approve and register the influenza vaccine called Fluad Quad that is available for use in 2020 in Australia, where this one study/document was not funded by either a Pharmaceutical Company or any other Company with invested interests in this vaccine.”
    Decision Maker
    I am the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) officer authorised to make this decision under section 23 of the FOI Act. What follows is my decision under the FOI Act.

    Ron · June 20, 2020 at 11:50 am

    I am sorry about what happened to you. Do you understand that so many people have been unfortunately adversely affected by so called safe vaccine? Do you accept that a persons own body is sacred and no one can force into you something you don’t want under any circumstances? That it is a choice. I reject the nasty label anti-vax. I not against vaccine I am pro-choice. And based on the information it is neither assured or safe anc indeed detrimental. Before you debate me bd aware my mother died of meningococcal 40 years ago. Still this is my position.

    Jannet · June 21, 2020 at 7:31 am

    I am sorry you got complications from your Mum not being vaccinated. I did get complications from the actual Rubella vaccination, when I was 12. I have never been well since, this is 45 years ago. It started with Meningitis ( inflammation of the brain), then I got the auto-immune disease Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and the list goes on). You think I am stupid and very selfish for choosing not to get any more vaccinations for the remainder of my life, especially the ones that are rushed through, with in months, rather then the usual 20+ years it takes to develop a vaccine. I think I will not survive an other vaccination and I am not ready to be a needed sacrifice. So yes I am very selfish for choosing not to end my life yet. I am sorry if that upsets you, but I should have the choice to live if I want to, especially for something that nobody knows if it even works.

Noone · June 18, 2020 at 12:49 pm

Hey Raff ..GO FARK YOURSELF and your NWO order communist shite! If the WHO has already said that people who get covid and recover can still get the virus again….HOW IN LIVING FARK WILL A VACCINE HELP you globalist UN CNUT!!

David Nicholson · June 18, 2020 at 8:29 pm

Why would anyone with a brain trust anything you or your bought doctors or scientists say! Don’t you get it you lying pack of putrid traitors! You have no trust or credibility left with the people you lowlife traitors are supposed to protect!! You filth have lied about everything for decades! Sold our country out along with its people for to long! I don’t Vaccinate because I’ve done REAL research after you scum gave my boy Autism! You all know or knew what Mercury do to a human body! Fuck your mass vaccines!

Rob Henderson · June 18, 2020 at 9:41 pm

If you’re vaccinated, you’re protected right. Don’t worry about those who choose not to. Freedom of choice still exists……….. doesn’t it?

Cole Ponton · June 18, 2020 at 11:23 pm

Ignorance of the pro-vax populous is staggering to say the least. I put this forward as a reasonable and logical argument.
Simply ask any government or vaccination manufacturer/provider to provide a written guarantee that (a) the vaccination(s) will not cause short or long-term injury, (b) compensation for injury or harm caused.
That is a fair, reasonable and intelligent expectation, yes?
The answer lies in legislation and policy. NO government will provide such guarentees; as will NO vaccination manufacturer/provider. On the contrary, the senators like Ciccone and politicians have in fact written into statute and contract that FULL immunity from prosecution and litigation is GUARANTEED to vaccination manufacturers/providers – at the request and insistence of the vaccination corporations themselves (and their hired lobbiest). So the only guarantee any government will provide has nothing to do with health and wellbeing.
If I offer you a concoction that I claim will help your body stay-off disease and you take it without question, then your a damn fool; yet if I offer you the same concoction and you ask me for the ingredients – for the safety test reports – and for a guarantee of effectiveness, safety and recourse; and I refuse, and yet you take it anyway – you are dangerous to yourself and others around you such as infants, children, thr elderly and those people who are easily influenced.
If pro-vaxxers claim to be “feed-up with anti-vaxxers ignorance..” ; then practice what you preach. Both pro & anti vaccination are arguing each other, when you both should be attacking the bias unsafe policies and perceived unconscionable conduct by gov & big pharma.

Donald Trump · June 19, 2020 at 11:53 pm

A compulsory world wide vaccination would more than likely result in more deaths than the virus it’s self. If the Vaccine has a safety rate of even .02% causing serious complications or even death would result in a further 1.6 million possible deaths. That’s not including possible future side effects of an untested vaccine. Poisoning people is not always the answer, but it is big business…..

Paul Taylor · June 20, 2020 at 12:23 am

Ciccone and the rest of his Labour scum should be put in prison. This man needs to be stopped and take away any power or voice these clowns have.

Julie · June 20, 2020 at 8:08 am

The constitution of Australia protects me against coerced into a medical procedure.

I expect independent safety studies and you have not provided them on any vaccines. I presume because you already know no vaccines are safe. Why should we trust you with our health and well being?

Why do you want us to have it so badly that you threaten to break the law of Australia?

Hammer Smith · June 20, 2020 at 8:21 am

His comments ring tones of fascism….authoritarian, characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition,

James Robertson · June 28, 2020 at 11:23 am

Unfortunately you use a phote of Dan Andrews… please replace with a valid photo of Senator Ciccone, perhaps it will help your credibility.
