    Not beinfg a hypocritical in this matter and considering myself to be mature enough to understand satire . I can confirm this is a Satire compagny. and english is not my first language, not understanding tese to be any else than satire is more telling on the person watching than anything else (or the state of education in the country)

    You may laugh about the Monty Python going on in that room. But beware that your laughing days are over once that facsist piece of legislation gets through. The aim is clearly to be able to drag you to court when you challenge power. So people will shut up out of fear. No laughing matter.

    Well done! You have to keep wearing them down, or they will have you. Government can be changed to Governmunt. And the Animals can be adjusted to be fat and over weight like lots of policiticos. You can also have a cartoon of the logo moving in the back ground, with the animals belching and f@RTING while they pick over the bloated carcus of poor Austrineland. You can also add, This is not the real Governmunt, But this is genuine satire. from the Ministry of poor digestion! You can also take this show on the road and ask people in the street what they think. Would they also be willing to sign a petition. Melissa Hunter as "Adult Wednesday Addams' in a brilliant series on ISpulse. But it was closed down by the copyright holder. Maybe something in that direction, but starring the vultures instead. Also I will even write the scripts for free for you. The English Language is full of the best ways to convey any meaning you wish to. Good luck. Best regards and greetings from Africa.

    Wow, to think that my father's words finally ring true. He grew up in the eastern block and always said. "A government can do anything it likes." He meant that a government had the power to make anything that it wants happen. He often related this statement to the war on drugs. That if the government genuinely wanted to rid our society of drugs, it could do so within a week. In stead, what worries the government even more than drugs, terrorism or even refugees; is the thought that there are people out there attempting to hold them to account on their shadowy dealings. THIS is what consumes their time and effort! Amazing. The only real way to wrestle power back from these monsters, that is Labor and Coalition, is to never ever straight out vote for them at any election. The one thing we have over other developed countries, is the preferential voting system which means the more cross benchers we elect, the more those in power must listen to the people. Have a look at the Juice Media's Honest Government video on the Australian Election.

    We "must not be permitted" to ridicule our government/"Fuhrer's" or their corrupt political/bureaucratic/business accomplices... And, "thank goodness" all of the major federal political parties, the coalition and Labor voted against a federal ICAC (independent commission against corruption) ... These sanctimonious, hypocritical creatures, have occupied "the amoral low ground/swamp"...The complacent Australian people, are allowing these bastards to get away with their corrupt fixing, for their own and their money'd mates best interests !... We have a lot less human rights here in Australia, than the vast majority of decent Australians realise... You can be incarcerated at the drop of a hat, on the whim of vested interests and individuals. This is not a joke, listen to George Brandis, the former attorney general of our banana republic... Simply fact check for yourself about wrongful incarceration in Australia, on Google !...

    It is satire, so long as it is non-violent. A non-genuine satire, or work contrary to satire is the work of a violent mind posing threat to Australia's security. The artefacts argued upon in the parliament committee makes me laugh! I don't feel threatened in any way by that exhibit. It is not a flag of a terrorist organisation. It is not a Centrelink message notifying me, the "meagre benefit" (sustenance) could not be remitted to your bank account because you didn't enter submit your report! It is not a debt collector's message threatening me bearing in mind that my only income is Centrelink Newstart Allowance. It is not a police officer pursuing to take advantage of my frail endurance.

    It looks like everybody missed what this lower form of life just said, so I will state it in plain english. He just said that the elected representatives of the people are not to make law or interpret law. The lawmakers are supposed to be the beuraucrats and the courts. People, if you wish to put the brakes on this dictatorship, better start to realize that parliment makes law, beuraucrats handle the paperwork and the courts ensure the intent of the law is properly applied. What we have here is a blatant attempt to shut down our political process and go right to a dictatorship by having the courts and beurauscrats make law. Thus making our governing bodies and your elected officials just window dressing with nothing to do.

    It's left to the courts to decide, in other words, we have unlimited tax payers money that it will be impossible for anyone to defend themselves against us and if you include the court system that is possible to be bias when comes to the government the one that feeds them. you have to be a real retarded to believe once these kind of laws take place that take your freedom of speech to ever see any fairness, especially with courts

    Yeap! I agree, I cannot tell if this is genuine satire or satire. What appauls me is that the Australians are entertaining this in court. One can clearly perceive this to be satire and if this is found to be negligent , then a serious breech of freedom is entertained and a dictionary of non offensive words coupled together with correct adjectives and nouns must be sanctioned in which case a Police State has been entered into and all freedoms have been compromised which is beyond satire. Furthermore, the defendant gentleman ( bald grey hair) already compromised himself by admitting this is satire. Case closed. Go and do something more constructive. Like attend to those grievances mentioned in the videos. Now that is serious. The matters which ‘thejuicemedia’ highlights are horrendous and those need to be taken to court, unless this is being used to stop ‘thejuicemedia’ as they are onto the truth and pointing out the deplorable actions of some. I have looked up what has been pointed out by thejuicemedia and found that what they have shown is correct. Everyone in Australia should rally around thejuicemedia, giving them support. This is an example of the thejuicemedia (allies) liberating those intend on creating concentration camp conditions for the people of planet earth. If you stop satire, where next is a liberty to be removed? This is serious indeed. Viva thejuicemedia!
