Media Tries to Disparage Dutch Farmer Protests as 'Right-Wing' Rally Cry
Farmers fighting for their livelihoods
The Presstitutes in the media have barely covered the widespread protests in the Netherlands over government climate plans that farmers say will eliminate any chance of their economic survival.
But now, after former President Donald Trump came out in support for the farmers, the media whores got the green light to tie these protests to the “far-right” cause.
The Financial Times wrote that “U.S. rightwing groups” have used the Dutch protests as “evidence of a backlash against environmental policies.” France 24 said the “rowdy” have “caused a stir at home and abroad, with populists worldwide jumping on the bandwagon.”
TRENDPOST: The motto of the Trends Journal is “Think For Yourself.”
The masters of propaganda, however, slip in words and thoughts to direct readers and viewers with words and phrases that subliminally or overtly do the thinking for you.
In the U.S., the mainstream media uses a label strategy to bundle all those who oppose the lockdowns, branding them to make it seem they are all from one political tribe.
What about all the people out of work who can’t pay bills?
Why the does the media paste simplistic labels on those who are protesting their loss of liberty and freedom… and their homes and livelihoods… as right-wingers?
Because they’re Presstitutes who get paid to put out by their corporate pimps.
Farmers in the Netherlands have been protesting government plans to cut harmful emissions by 2030 that they say will essentially eliminate any chance that they have of making a living.
Videos have emerged that showed some of the tense protests. There have been tractors forming blockades and confrontations between protesters and police.
Amsterdam aims to reduce the emissions of nitrogen oxide and ammonia by half, and the plans to achieve that goal will be to reduce livestock and purchase farms that are a large emitter. The FT said the government intends to cut livestock by a third on these farms.
Jaap Kok, a 62-year-old cattle farmer, told France 24 that he would have would have “preferred that the support came from the left but from the right is fine, too.”
“Farmers are always the scapegoat,” he said.
Frans Timmermans, the EU climate commissioner, said the bloc’s goal is to achieve net zero emissions by 2050, according to the FT.
“And economic activity should no longer cause harmful pollution to our air, our water and the wider environment. That is why we talk about climate neutrality, not just carbon neutrality,” he said.
Andrej Zaslove, associate professor at the Dutch Radboud University and a specialist on populism, told Politico that he believes the farmers’ protest “taps into broader issues of identity.”
“It’s about [how] the farmers really see their identity being challenged. It's kind of a way of life. And I think this is something that the radical right picks up on,” he said.
Kok, a 62-year-old cattle farmer, said, “We’ll take all the help we can get.”
