Dutch Farmers Become a Political Force in The Netherlands


A farmers’ protest party shook up the political landscape in the Netherlands on Wednesday, emerging as the big winner in provincial elections that determine the make-up of the Senate.

  1. I read somewhere the other two major parties are forming a coalition so the can continue to do the wokey pokey crap.

  2. It is Truckers & Farmers who have been standing up to their Governments all over the world. Many times they are actually the same people.

    It happened in France a few years ago with Diesel Protests.

    In Canuckistan it was Truckers, Farmers and others who protested in Ottawa against the Black face Son-of-a-Bitch real Racist but they called them all Truckers. (easier to Vilify)

    Now, Governments are going after Farmers in different ways in order to Reduce FOOD, thus population.
    The Dutch Gov’t are trying to Bankrupt them.
    Canadian Gov’t legislating limiting Fertilizer as dairy Boards up here force farmers to Dump Milk into the fields. (Trump called them out BIGLY)
    USA, gates is buying up & mothballing some land as the Government tries to cut off access to WATER.

    Up here in Caledon & Southern Ontario there are Stickers on MANY vehicled that say “FARMERS FEED FAMILIES” It started in India, many of them Came to Canada & collectively bought farms in Caledon & South Ontario and are continuing the protests against Indias war on farming and Canada under TURDEAU who is doing the same.

    I have oversimplified the situation greatly. Who has the time.

    Next up, I hope the TRADES tell the Government to FUCK OFF HARD!

    Its time.

    Apparently elections there are still fair.

  4. Say what you want about parliamentary systems, but when there is a national uprising by the people in those types of government, a new party can be quickly formed, can get on the ballot, and can win enough seats to make a real difference. In the US, no matter how much hatred there is, both worthless major parties have passed laws in every state that keep new parties off the ballot. Rules regarding the electoral college further impede any changes, etc. In the state of Georgia, no 3rd party candidate has been able to qualify for the ballot in a US House race since 1935! Change doesn’t happen because it can’t.
