Top Dutch Official: Our Farmers Are Rebelling against the ‘Great Reset’
'They have to lose their connection with the land'
Dutch politician Thierry Baudet said his country's farmers are fighting the globalist Great Reset through their protests against aggressive new government climate policies.
“The real point here is the Great Reset, mass migration, [and] transnational governance," he said.
"And that’s why the people have to become atomized—they have to lose their connection with the land," he added.
"And that’s why they’re hitting the farmers,” he said.
Baudet, a member of the Dutch House of Representatives and leader of the political party Forum for Democracy, made the remark during a July 8 interview with Roman Balmakov, host of EpochTV’s “Facts Matter.”
“This is not just a Netherlands thing—this is an all of Europe thing as well,” he said, noting that protests have spread across the continent, partly in connection with similar policies from the European Commission.
“How is it possible that in an age where everybody’s talking about the possibility of food shortages, of insecure supply chains, the Dutch government is pursuing this policy which will lead to even more dependence on international supply chains and, thus, uncertainty for the Dutch people?” Baudet asked on July 8.
“The answer is the people governing this country are following the script written by the EU, to realize what they call a Great Reset. They want to make us more dependent on international supply chains. They want to weaken Dutch sovereignty and autonomy.”
Baudet and other Dutch politicians, including Dutch House of Representatives member Geert Wilders, have argued that the government is trying to acquire farmland cheaply in order to build more housing for migrants.
Baudet acknowledged that the state did not make migrant housing an explicit aim in its approach to the country’s farmers.
However, he said that the current government, led by Prime Minister Mark Rutte, has made the continuation of mass migration an explicit goal.
A webpage for Rutte’s party, the People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy, suggests they are open to asylum seekers until would-be asylees have used all legal means to appeal their case.
Dutch government statistics show that net migration (people entering minus people leaving) to the country has trended up in recent years, rebounding in 2021 after dipping during the COVID-19 year of 2020.
Net migration to the Netherlands, a country of roughly 17.2 million people, totaled 108,275 in 2021.
“If you bring in 100,000 people a year net, then your nitrogen oxide emissions are going to increase anyway,” Baudet said, questioning the government’s priorities in seeking to eradicate farmland while enabling mass migration to help fuel population growth.
“Nobody’s making these larger analyses of what’s going to happen to the economy in the longer run. How are our policies internally consistent with one another?”
Earlier this month, tens of thousands of farmers gathered from across the Netherlands to protest against crushing policies to reduce the number of livestock in the country by up to a third.
The establishment media twisted the reports with headlines like “Dutch farmers protest emissions targets," which is not entirely true.
Although the government policy is a 25 BILLION Euro investment in “reducing levels of nitrogen pollution," its plan to achieve this is by “paying some Dutch livestock farmers to relocate or exit the industry”.
