German Farmers Bring In Thousands of Tractors To Protest ‘Environmentalist’ Policies

Published

on

About 10,000 German farmers rolled into Berlin on Tuesday with at least 5,000 tractors, parking them in front of the Brandenburg Gate to protest recent government policies which would hamper their activities in the name of environmentalism.

The protests were prompted by a set of restrictions on fertilizers, pesticides, and insecticides put forward in September by the Agriculture and Environment ministers. Touted as pro-environment policies to lessen nitrate in groundwater and reduce insect death, they have instead provoked accusations from Germany’s farmers that the impact on their industry was not considered.

The farmers pointed out that the decreased use of agricultural chemicals would have a direct effect on their crops and revenues, and questioned the research that the government claimed justified the restrictions. They called for subsidies to protect the agricultural sector if their livelihood continues to be squeezed.

The German protests follow closely on the heels of similar demonstrations in the Netherlands just last month, which also saw thousands of farmers descend on the capital with tractors to protest attacks on their industry and its image.

The reaction was in response to proposed policies to limit the number of live animals and enforce more “sustainable” agricultural practices. The farmers also pushed back against an unfair image of being polluters and animal abusers.

Both of these events clearly fit a broader pattern of intensifying discontent with the material conditions inflicted by the increasingly disconnected globalist political class on the peoples of Europe. In Germany and the Netherlands, as in France where the Yellow Vests have now been in the streets for over a year, exploitive neoliberalism is being combined with progressive environmentalism in a perverse union that the ruling elite use to war with their own populations.

Unfortunately, if France is any harbinger, then the road ahead remains long and dark, and it appears certain that things must still get worse before they get better. Let us hope that the people continue waking up to the reality of their plight, and never give up their resistance!

AMERICA IS BACK BABY!

You didn’t seriously think that after four years of peace in the Middle East, things were gonna stay that way, did you Jack? Well of course not! On Thursday afternoon, the Pentagon confirmed that the United States military had carried out airstrikes in Syria against facilities used by Iranian-backed militias. These groups have been operating in Syria for some time in their fight against the Islamic State and Al-Qaeda.

Pentagon Press Secretary Kirby gave the following statement:

“At President Biden’s direction, U.S. military forces earlier this evening conducted airstrikes against infrastructure utilized by Iranian-backed militant groups in eastern Syria. These strikes were authorized in response to recent attacks against American and Coalition personnel in Iraq, and to ongoing threats to those personnel. Specifically, the strikes destroyed multiple facilities located at a border control point used by a number of Iranian-backed militant groups, including Kait’ib Hezbollah (KH) and Kait’ib Sayyid al-Shuhada (KSS).

This proportionate military response was conducted together with diplomatic measures, including consultation with Coalition partners. The operation sends an unambiguous message: President Biden will act to protect American and Coalition personnel. At the same time, we have acted in a deliberate manner that aims to de-escalate the overall situation in both eastern Syria and Iraq.”

According to conservative commentator Jack Posobiec, Vice President Harris was not included in the discussions about the bombing and is very upset that she wasn’t.

Many Twitter users are also pointing out the fact that Biden had fully condemned unannounced military action in the Middle East when it was Trump doing it.

According to the New York Post, the airstrikes were in response to recent attacks against US forces in Iraq. The militia groups targeted have denied any involvement in the attacks and there has been no confirmation as to whether or not they were involved. The New York Post wrote:

The Pentagon did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

It was not immediately clear if there were any deaths or injuries caused by the US strike, or the extent of damage it may have caused.

On Feb. 15, a rocket attack against a US military base at Erbil International Airport in Northern Iraq killed a US-led coalition contractor and left others wounded, including an American service member.

Two days later, a base hosting US forces north of Baghdad was targeted in another rocket attack, wounding at least one contractor.

On Monday rockets hit Baghdad’s Green Zone, which houses the US embassy and other diplomatic missions.

Earlier this week, the Kataib Hezbollah group, one of the main Iran-aligned Iraqi militia groups, denied any role in recent rocket attacks against U.S. targets in Iraq.

Some Western and Iraqi officials say the attacks, often claimed by little-known groups, are being carried out by militants with links to Kataib Hezbollah as a way for Iranian allies to harass US forces without being held accountable.

Fox New’s Tucker Carlson, who seems to be the only host on any cable news network that has been unquestionably anti-war for the past four years, gave a monologue Thursday night about his take on the attacks:
