The old saying, “You ain’t much if you ain’t Dutch” is now turned on its head with “If your’e Dutch, you ain’t got much.” As predicted, environmental extremism is driving thousands of Dutch farmers off their land, first by limiting essential nitrogen-based fertilizer and now by direct government land grab, as ordered by the Technocrats at the European Union. ⁃ TN Editor

Seventy-one percent of the earth’s atmosphere is made up of nitrogen, but we’re told that too much of it can be very, very bad. So the Nitrogen Minister of the Netherlands (yes, that’s a real job), Christianne van der Wal, is spearheading a government effort to drastically reduce nitrogen emitted by too much greenery — especially on very productive farms — and especially close to “environmentally sensitive” areas.

Farmers in the Netherlands have been at war with the government over nitrogen emissions ever since the government announced that there would be a 50% reduction in nitrogen emissions by 2050. Dairy farmers are especially hard hit because waste from the 1.6 million dairy cows in the Netherlands is the largest contributor to nitrogen “pollution.”

“My livelihood and my network is being threatened,” said Ben Apeldoorn, whose farm has about 120 cows producing milk for making cheese. “You’re just no longer allowed to exist,” he told the New York Times.

But it’s all to save the planet, don’t ya know?

“There is no better offer coming,” Nitrogen Minister van der Wal told MPs on Friday. She said compulsory purchases would be made with “pain in the heart,” if necessary.

In other words, take it or leave it, plebes.

The Telegraph:

Farmers’ lobby group LTO Nederland said trust in the government “has been very low for a long time”. It accused the Government of drafting “restrictions without perspective”.

Sjaak van der Tak, chairman of LTO, said: “Of course it is positive that a good voluntary stop scheme is being promised. But the stayers who are central to us will have many additional restrictions imposed.”

Agractie, another farmers’ organisation, said the voluntary closure scheme was welcome but must not be applied with the threat of compulsory purchase.

There’s a relatively new political party in the Netherlands called BoerBurgerBeweging (BBB) — meaning Farmer-Citizen Movement. It’s taken root and has made a significant impact in the polls. The party is fielding 300 candidates in next year’s provincial elections, and in recent polls, the party ranks fourth among the 17 leading parties.

Caroline van der Plas, the party’s founder and sole MP, believes the party could gain up to eight seats in the 75-seat Dutch Senate.

“So many things are going wrong,” she tells the Guardian. “In the outlying areas, you often hear that in The Hague there is no eye for the human dimension and the small things that are so important in the countryside.”

So I guess the line has been drawn – Gov vs the People – Revolution is the only way.


Appears so.

Can the farmers arm themselves?


It’s the Netherlands. The only guns are in the hands of Belgian criminals. Oh, except for the seven or so people who have a musket from the 1700’s.


funny and accurate, sadly.

Let them eat bugs

Farmers provide FOOD. That is what they want to stop not “global warming”. The planet is just a pile of dirt with an iron core. It’s the humans on it that matter.

If you’ve lived in the NL, you know that it is one of the most stratified systems in the world. Those with ANY money don’t give the steam off their rat’s patooie about anyone else.

If these guys don’t band together now they/we are screwed. Also somebody needs to tell them about the new study that shows that cows fed a little seaweed in their diet don’t fart! With a fertilizer shortage it can be easily demonstrated that we need cow poop to compost ; but then the chemical companies could no longer gouge farmers. Beside beef/ farms everywhere is under attack so Gates can make us eat bugs,algae & GMO Roundup laced food. Hey the USA just released the biggest arms dealer in the world for a basketball player; maybe he can help arm… Read more »
