Western Australia, an Australian state that comprises 32.9 percent of the continent, is being compared to Nazi Germany or Communist China over a controversial new proposal to ban biker gang members from showing off their tattoos or hanging out together in public.

Set to be voted on by the Parliament of Western Australia sometime soon, the Unlawful Consorting and Prohibited Insignia Bill explicitly stipulates that biker gang members are “banned from wearing their patches and associating with one another in public.”

The Sydney Morning Herald notes that a “patch” includes any type of “insignia, including tattoos.”

According to a press release from the Western Australian government, a violation of the “patch” rule would be punishable by “a 12 month jail term and fines of up to $12,000 or $60,000 for corporations,” and the first violation of the consorting rule would be punishable by “a 12 month jail term and $12,000 fine.”

Any additional violations of the consorting law would open the door to the offender being imprisoned for up to five years.

The ostensible purpose of the bill is to “disrupt and restrict the capacity of those involved in serious and organised crime to plan, support or encourage the carrying out of criminal activity,” as stated in the press release.

Nevertheless, given the vast number of additional infringements on civil liberties that have been seen across Australia in recent times — particularly during and because of the coronavirus pandemic — critics believe this is just another step down the nation’s slippery slide toward turning into a fascist state.

The greatest worry is that while the latest measure is ostensibly designed to only target biker gang members, it’ll wind up being used to limit the freedoms of “everyday citizens” as well.

For the time being, the law has provoked the fiercest reaction from notorious gang members like Coffin Cheaters’ Chris “Ballistic” Orchard.

“Just like that we [are] now in North Korea [or] Nazi Germany whatever you want to call it we are there freedoms gone anyone who thinks this s–t is right you are delusional,” Orchard reportedly wrote on Facebook last week, according to the Daily Mail.

“How about instead of making us remove or cover our tattoos you f**ks force child molesters to get tattoos to identify them and force them to show them at all times in public?”

Fellow gang members reportedly agreed.

“That means all you politicians who like to mess with kids too. You all should have it tattooed on ya f**king forehead,” one of his compatriots reportedly wrote in response.

“Couldn’t agree more. Yet Churches (can) harbour paedophiles and Islam terrorists with out a problem,” another gang member reportedly wrote.

According to acting WA Police commissioner Col Blanch, gang members like Hells Angels’ Dayne Brajkovich, who’s reportedly covered from top to bottom with tattoos, may have to start wearing makeup.

“He must cover up anything that says ‘1%’ or references the club, whether it’s on his face, whether it’s on publicly displayed arms, or whether it’s on anything – his motorcycle, flag or vest,” he said at a presser last week.

“I would start with things like Band-Aids or makeup certainly or have it removed or alternatively, people can choose the option not to live in Western Australia if this law passes.”

This comes as all of Australia is already facing heavy criticism for the overzealous policies it’s pursued in what critics say has been its “futile” quest to permanently stamp out the coronavirus.

The policies have at times been so severe that some have proclaimed that “Australia has fallen.”

But there may be some light at the end of the tunnel.

This upcoming week, one of the nation’s largest cities, Melbourne, will reportedly finally be lifting what has been the longest lockdowns on the globe.
