The Great European Peasant revolt of 2024 is about to kick off.

German farmers will play a key role in said uprising.

Populism of this sort is here to stay, regardless of what the “regime” says.

Peasant Revolt has such a nice ring to it & captures the spirit. It's impossible to guess what it may entail but turning some tables on ruling class long overdue..

This reputational attack on the German farmers is almost identical to Canadian Truckers Freedom Convoy. WEF lackey Trudeau w legacy media went full tyrant w Nazi accusations built on PR team pic w one flag then honored an actual real life SS Nazi and arming Nazi tattooed Azov forces. All in for 2024 Peasant Revolt!

Am quite sick of the cherry-picking, massaged messaging narrative of the bent globalist bootlicking media..the mess in Canada (Trudeau/Freeland WEF installed globalist useful idiots) has as yet to date never been held accountable for their abuse of the Canadian truckers and the entire covid jab scam.... the Dutch and the German farmers need to hold the line and expose and dethrone these globalist installed government criminals .

Ultimately the Peasants feed everyone, so if they choose to go that route:

All one really needs is Mass Civil Disobedience. REFUSE to feed 'useless eaters' (i.e. White & Gold Callers who don't contribute meaningfully to society.)

If Farmers stopped working, the whole country would SHUT DOWN.

Big Gates would love it ,if farmers shut down farming so he could supply all of Germany with tse bugs menu .

Two more things:

If anyone in the German farmers' demonstrations has watched what has happened to Tamara Lich and Chris Barber in the Canadian kangaroo courts, we understand why they are reluctant to stand up and deal with the press;

Anyone who has not watched The Epoch Times' documentary "No Farmers, No Food" should make time as soon as possible, and share it widely.

And the Dutch farmers too.

I think the word 'populist' is incorrect.

This protest is a deep reverberation from within any state, and when it comes the politicians need to take cover. The corrupt 'Prime Minister' Rutter of the Netherlands thought he could out-run this, and he was wrong.

This is the right path, rather than 'populism' - and I agree, it's here to stay regardless of those who seek to impose their will.

I think we should stop using "right wing" too. It has long been used by the left to insinuate that we are somewhere halfway along a spectrum that ends with Hitler.

We are supposed to believe that the "socialism" in "National Socialism" was just a joke. We are supposed to forget that Mussolini had been the head of the Italian Socialist Party, and that he worked out his ideas for fascism from Lenin's New Economic Policy. We are supposed to forget that eugenics was a great cause of the left (and remained as the policy of the Swedish Social Democrats from the 1930s to the 70s until the conservative party finally won an election). And so on.

Today, we have free-market Javier Milei, who supports Israel, and we're told that he is a populist, a right-wing danger to democracy, Argentina's Hitler. All this, while the left today supports a Mussolini corporate-state economy and proudly marches alongside people who chant "Death to the Jews".

No, it's time to give up on "right wing". Nobody today is going to hear the phrase and think of the layout of Louis XVI's Parlement.

Nazis were Socialist AKA Left Wing.

Mussolini's favoured synonym for Fascist was Corporate Socialist, a perfect description of the EU.

Right wing is Libertarian - as I regard myself.

Just because a collection of deluded semi-literates don't understand the meaning of words doesn't mean I have to pander to their misconceptions.

It is a form of 'fealty' to the regime. That being said, their grip in power is not what it was pre-COVID. It has buckled considerably post-Ukraine War.

In the US, as in Germany (and much of the West), the elites and their media mouthpieces can never admit that they're unpopular because their policies are stupid. It's always got to be that they're unpopular because the people are stupid.

It's more than that:

The people are "Outright Evil." Most of them are now making movies & Netflix shows about how 'Raw Sewage' (that's the term Obama used) being put into the Public Discourse by the "Evil Racists & *insert 57 different terms here*" ... is a 'threat to democracy' (read: 'Our Managerial Oligarchy').

Well then allow the supporters to eat food from the farmers and the non-supporters don't need any food from the farmers. This will lead to more food for the supporters anyway.

Farmers keep things running in society. They are far more virtuous than the average 'white collar worker' since they Feed a lot of 'useless eaters' out of a sense of Moral & Civic duty.

Do you know any Farmers or truckers involved in Germany who would speak on my show? Unfortunately I don’t speak German, so would need someone that can speak English fairly well.

Mainstream characterization of resistance to plutarchy is always framed as extremist. In Canada we regularly saw "trucker" protesters using swastikas to describe the state in protest, and of course the MSM claimed it was how protesters represented themselves. There is apparently no limit to the dishonest bad faith used to implant propaganda.

'When mass demonstrations and tax strikes did not work, some turned to terror. In the end, the Nazis profited.'

So Godwin's Law even applies in Germany. Or maybe, especially in Germany? As an outsider, I can't say which.

But it is Deutschlandfunk who bring the pièce de résistance, in an interview with “extremism researcher” Matthias Quent. He demands that the protesters more clearly distance themselves from the right, perhaps by carrying signs saying “Nazis get out,” or by painting LGBTQ rainbows on their placards. He believes that these will drive out right-wingers, I guess in the same way that garlic repels vampires. 👏👏

Thanks for the update and last paragraph laugh.

Court scribes ye shall always have with you, whatever form the court takes. Add that to any list of eternal truths.

Having learned to milk a cow during my tenure as a tour guide in a NYC children's petting farm, I can identify as a farmer at will, so let me cheer on my people and vouch for the cleanliness of their souls.

And isn't it sad to learn that in German "funk" merely means radio or wireless? And here I was getting all excited about Deutschlandfunk. What a letdown.

SCA says: "And isn't it sad to learn that in German "funk" merely means radio or wireless? And here I was getting all excited about Deutschlandfunk. What a letdown."

No, there's no letdown, just a boogie-on-down. Surmounting the potential confusions, Germany does indeed have Funkrundfunk, such as this station:

"80s80s Funk & Soul: Von Kool & The Gang, über Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones, Prince, Sister Sledge bis Tina Turner - In unserem neuen 80s80s Radio Funk & Soul laden wir euch ein in eine Sound-Welt die von Clubbeats bis Herzschmerz alles zu bieten hat. Can you feel it?"

It may well be.

Depends on the desired survey results, what questions are asked, and who’s asking them.

This one was done by INSER for Bild - whether that’s good or not is for readers to decide.

Regardless, it’s hard to believe that 22% of the country doesn’t want to eat, or that the likes of Ms Baumgart comprise that percentage.

Expand full comment

It's not that the 22%, don't want to eat. It's just that they know food comes from supermarkets these days, so there's no need for silly farms.

This was the line of argument from some youngish female politician in the US - it wasn't AOC, but she'd probably agree.

'a long intensely anecdotal piece'

Thank you for giving me a phrase to describe what appears to be a recent trend in journalism. I can see the point of including some personal experience anecdotes, but extensive articles with n=1 or n=2 don't really illustrate, or demonstrate, much of anything.

It just seems like a ploy to draw in readers whose interest can be held by a (frequently emotionally-manipulative) story, but who have limited patience for serious analysis.

I am impressed that you and other SS contributors read these muckrakers. I feel like you are taking one for the team. The idiotic nonsense they call journalism is nothing more than muckraking and they don’t do that well either. Their bias is so obvious.

I support farmers and miners, tradies, and the working man and woman everywhere. Go the farmers.

> State-media broadcaster tagesschau turned instead to “protest researcher” Saldivia Gonzatti to explain that the farmers are suffering simultaneously from “instrumentalisation” by the right (I am getting very tired of typing this) and from their own “fear of the future.”

I hate the level of smug condescension implicit in things like this.

Let's say, hypothetically, that the farmers are in fact "suffering... from their own 'fear of the future'". THAT IS A PERFECTLY LEGITIMATE THING TO BE UPSET ABOUT AND TO PROTEST OVER

If the fears are legitimate, then that is self-justifying, somewhat tautologically.

If the fears are not legitimate, then the correct way to address them would be _to actually address them_, to acknowledge them, to acknowledge why someone might reasonably fear them, and then to explain how those fears are not actually going to happen.

But they don't do that. Instead they use it as a weapon to mock and belittle: AHAHA LOOK AT THESE FARMERS THEY'RE FUCKIN SCARED.

That is not the tone of someone with morality on their side
