An anti-lockdown protester in Brisbane has been heard making disturbing and violent comments about the Queensland Premier.
Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has been targeted by disgusting slurs at an anti-lockdown protest in Brisbane with a member of the crowd heard yelling ‘hang the b*tch’.
Organisers were also forced to denounce a man wearing a hood and carrying a noose, telling him to ‘take that crap down and take it to your car’.
A Facebook live stream by an attendee named Justin Allen showed a sizeable crowd at the Botanic Garden as part of a co-ordinated nationwide protest against pandemic laws and vaccine mandates.
About 12.30pm Mr Allen’s Facebook lifestream showed announcers asking the crowd what they thought of Ms Palaszczuk.
Loud boos echoed around the gardens and one man off camera was twice heard yelling out “hang the bitch”.
Announcers then asked a man to take a noose back to his car, telling him “take that crap down … this is not the place for stuff like that. Doesn’t matter what you’re trying to get at. We don’t want that crap here.”
This was met with applause by the crowd.
United Australia Party chairman Clive Palmer is expected to address the rally this afternoon.
The incident follows disturbing scenes at protests in Melbourne this week where a gallows and noose was set up outside Victorian parliament, with a prop of Premier Daniel Andrews nearby.
