Dutch Farmers Dragged Off the Streets by Government Agents


The Dutch government mandated a 50% reduction in nitrogen emissions by 2030, tasking individual municipalities to figure out how best to meet that goal, Deutsche Welle reported. Livestock farming accounts for 40% of emissions in the country. The policy could see up to a third of livestock farmers out of business. Farming, in general, will collapse. They want to end pig farms.

In July, over 40,000 farmers took to the streets protesting the policy, blocking roads with tractors and defacing government officials’ homes. Sympathizers elsewhere in Europe staged protests in solidarity with the Dutch farmers, arguing that such a policy was counterproductive amid highly elevated inflation levels and food shortages.

The Netherlands’ agricultural minister Henk Staghouwer resigned following widespread protests from Dutch farmers over his radical climate agenda to destroy their livelihoods. Whoever follows him won’t favor farmers.

An underlying cause is ESG.


The Dutch farmer protesters are growing increasingly dangerous. Like an authoritarian dictatorship, undercover police officers run ‘snatch-and-grab’ arrests.

In Amsterdam, public footage has surfaced showing undercover police officers violently arresting a civilian. The undercover operation reveals a disturbing escalation in state action against the Dutch farmer protesters.


Staghouwer told reporters he wasn’t the right person for the job. He held the position for only nine months and announced his decision Monday night. He had just returned from Brussels. Staghouwer negotiated an agreement with the European Commission to scrap a Dutch exemption to manure spreading limits.

He was then forced to resign.

The Netherlands, Denmark, Ireland, and the Flanders region of Belgium, had been allowed to exceed caps on how much manure farmers could return to their fields because of the country’s comparatively small land area. But Brussels wants to phase out this dispensation because the Dutch fail to meet EU’s radical water quality standards.

The EU was supposed to be a cooperative trade union, but now Brussels technocrats rule over every EU country in most matters.

The country’s lucrative agriculture sector has been in crisis since a 2019 court ruling. It forced the government to slash emissions of nitrogen oxide and ammonia, which livestock produce. AP reports say that thousands of farmers have staged protests, blockading cities with tractors and burning hay bales along highways.

According to the APNews, Staghouwer could not meet the September deadline for rolling out the government’s radical green policy.

The climate agenda involves cutting nitrogen emissions from the nation’s farming sector to the point where farms can’t continue operating. The idea allegedly came from Klaus Schwab at the World Economic Forum.

There is no other way to produce bountiful agricultural output.


Mark Rutte said he respects his brave decision. Parliament member Carolin van der Plas of The Farmer–Citizen Movement party (BBB) said “he was totally unsuitable” for the job.

Bart Kemp of farmers’ organization Agractie told NOS that Staghouwer was “a friendly man, but not a decisive person.” NOS is a Dutch public broadcaster.

Henk Staghouwer

Staghouwer’s role will temporarily be taken on by the former agricultural minister Carola Schouten.

Schouten is very radical and wants to close all pig farms. Whoever replaces Staghouwer will be worse as long as Rutte, a puppet of the WEF, is in charge.

Staghouwer faced criticism from the parliament for failing to develop a concrete plan to help the sector transition to farming practices that lower nitrogen emissions, according to DutchNews.nl. Officials within his department also resisted plans to revamp the farming industry.


The deliberate move away from efficient and low-cost farming aligns with a broader global initiative to minimize and reorganize most industrial activity. And that initiative is known as ESG, FEE reports.

As Dan Sanchez has delineated, “environmental, social and corporate governance” (ESG) policies have been around in their codified form since 2004, when top financial institutions were tasked by the United Nations with developing guidelines for reforming the financial sector through “environmental, social and corporate governance.” The evident goal was to skew the global economy’s capital investment toward firms willing to fall in line with the environmental and social values of the powers that be.

In the past few years, ESG has gone mainstream with little resistance from people in power.

In December 2021, Reuters named 2021 “the year of ESG investing.” By April 2022, Bloomberg reported, “Few corners of the financial universe have been surrounded by as much marketing froth as ESG, which by some estimates represents more than $40 trillion in assets.”

ESG Has the Power to Force the Values of Controllers on Everyone

ESG funds prioritize their controllers’ moral values rather than focusing purely on profitability.  Those values concentrate on leftist values of race and sex quotas, collapsing the fossil fuel industry, and reducing food production. In the end, their policies are racist and sexist.

ESG funds are underperforming badly, but that doesn’t stop them. They have excuses for that.

This is the fate of the Dutch farming industry. The demands are impossible, and the Politicians, the UN, and the World Economic Forum will destroy them.

“For my son, where can he find a living and know what will be allowed in 10 years?” asked Erik Stegink, a protesting pig farmer in the Dutch village of Bathmen.

The drastic hampering of Holland’s farming industry, directly and indirectly, will put thousands of farmers out of work, reduce food availability, and increase food prices internationally when food insecurity is rising, FEE reports.

Police are the means for ALL political corruption. Police are public enemy number one!

Keep worshiping your cops that enforce and protect this evil and protect the parasite political class from justice.

Joe Biden’s recent warped screech of “WE BEAT THE FARMERS”.

You may have noticed that the enemy always seems to be livestock. They never caution the world about pet ownership and pet food. They know that denying people their pets would generate immediate and overwhelming outrage across a wide array of commonwealths, not just among farmers. In the matter or pets. they are far more subtle in their strategy; just destroy the food supply for the pets and people will no longer be able to afford them. They don’t have to order it. Make no mistake that just as the WEF wants to curtail livestock, they most certainly disapprove of feeding pets as well.

If the WEF isn’t stopped in November, people will be eating their pets before November 2024.

Remember, they said that all they wanted was for gay marriage to be legal, nothing more. And stop they did not; now they want your kiddie’s penis or breasts chopped off without your permission. Yes, abso-LUTELY they will come for your, and my, pets! Just not THEIR pets. Bank.

Millions of you have to be activated with pitchforks and have to remove your eco-worriers, your politicians, your stewpid cops or face the consequences of mass starvation, freezing, or FORCED blood-clotting vaccination.

The World Economic Forum Cult has publicly proclaimed that the World has too many people and the WEF needs to reduce the World’s Population by at Least 7 Billion by 2030. I for one am taking them at their Word. If you go after the Farmers, you will soon be eating your pets, then rodents, then bugs, then each other, and then you die! It’s just that simple folks. The only Nation with a chance is America, we have plenty of guns and ammunition. The Cities will kill each other, mostly Liberals, off. The Rural Folks will just plow their bodies under for fertilizer.

If you’re not in the position to Farm or Ranch then you’re screwed. People in Cities are going to eventually starve. Quicker than most people realize. This Winter a lot of you will be in the Cold, and Hungry. The Riots and Unrest will be 10 times worse than anything we have seen in America before. People go crazy when they are cold and hungry and soon a lot of people are going to be cold and hungry. Liberals are about to find out that Government can’t provide for you! Government produces nothing. Conservatives already understand that!
