Dutch Elections: Farmer Citizen Movement (BBB) Victorious over Globalist Govt and Green Agenda

The new populist pro-farmer party, the FarmerCitizenMovement (BBB), had a significant victory in Wednesday’s provincial elections, winning an astonishing 15 seats in the 75-seat Senate after previously having zero seats. The farmers’ BBB party opposes the government’s goal to buy farmers out and reduce livestock numbers by up to a third to help slash nitrogen emissions in half by 2030. Holland is the world’s second-biggest agricultural exporter, and its products include flowers, dairy produces, eggs, meat, and vegetables. Soil and water nitrogen levels have been reported to exceed EU limits in the Netherlands, but the BBB asserts that the problem has been exaggerated and that farmers’ livelihoods are being sacrificed to the green transition. Critics have pointed out that the regulations have caused food shortages and some people are unable to eat every day.

Despite the trouncing in last night’s elections, the government’s minister for nature and nitrogen policy, Christianne van der Wal signaled that the controversial nitrogen policy will continue to be on the agenda because the government believes it is mandated to push it through under EU law.



The upstart populist pro-farmer party FarmerCitizenMovement (BBB) shook the foundations of politics in the Netherlands overnight, securing a significant victory in Wednesday’s provincial elections on the back of growing resentment against the globalist government of Prime Minister Mark Rutte and his plans to introduce Great Reset-style environmental policies.

“People, what the fuck happened?” exclaimed the frank-talking, half-Irish leader of the BBB, Caroline van der Plas in a victory speech on Wednesday evening as her party, which was formed just three years ago, saw the most gains of any party in the elections that will determine the makeup of the Dutch senate.

The BoerBurgerBeweging (FarmerCitizenMovement) dominated voting in rural areas of the country largely as a result of anger towards the government’s plans to impose EU-driven regulations on farming, particularly the use of nitrogen fertilisers, which many farmers have warned will put them out of business.

At the time of this reporting, BBB is expected to pick up an astonishing 16 seats in the 75-seat Senate, after previously holding zero. With 94 per cent of the vote counted, turnout is projected to have been around  57.5 per cent, the highest since the 1980s.

Commenting on the shock results, the chairman of the Agriculture and Horticultural Organization Netherlands (LTO), Sjaak van der Tak said that it was “an important profit for our farmers and the vital countryside,” adding: “Voters gave the cabinet and therefore the coalition a huge blow and that requires a real change of course with finding support for the big plans, such as nitrogen.”

Meanwhile, the leader of the CDA party — a member of the current governing coalition, Wopke Hoekstra said: “The Hague, including us, has insufficiently understood what is going on in our country. There’s a huge gap, we all have to care.”

The driving factor for the groundswell of support for the pro-farming party was opposition to the government’s plans to implement mandated cuts on the use of nitrogen fertilisers by as much as 70 per cent in some areas of the country by the end of the decade, with 92 per cent of BBB voters citing the policy as a motivating factor for their vote.

Court Blocks Biden’s COVID Vaccine Mandate for US Federal Workers

March 26, 2023 NY Post 1

A prior injunction blocked the mandate in January 2022, only a few months after Biden issued the order, but nearly 98% of covered employees had already been vaccinated. Opponents of the policy said it was an encroachment on federal workers’ lives that neither the Constitution nor federal statutes authorize.
