The Dutch government released a Terrorist Threat Assessment this week, labelling people who protest COVID-19 or globalist environmental policies as “right-wing extremists.”
The Dutch National Coordinator for Counterterrorism and Security (NCTV) stated there’s a risk level of 3 out of 5 for terrorism threats.
“In the Netherlands, a group of anti-government extremists is targeting the government and other institutions out of a fundamental distrust, anger and sense of injustice,” the update reads.
“This group arose as a radical undercurrent of the corona protest and is increasingly focusing on other topics, such as the nitrogen issue and the farmers’ protest.”
The Dutch anti-terrorism branch also labelled people who protest globalist policies pushed by the World Economic Forum as extremists and conspiracy theorists.
“Some of them embrace conspiracy theories. Conspiracy theories detract from public trust in the institutions of the democratic rule of law. The spread and normalization of such theories can give rise to the commission of extremist and even terrorist acts.”
The report claims that concerns about the WEF are conspiracies and that “followers” of this anti-globalist movement are “spreading a so-called ‘elite narrative’, the idea that the Netherlands is an elite power with an oppressive agenda.”
It also found that half of the Dutch population doesn’t trust their government, legal system, media, and health experts.
Dutch farmers and citizens made international headlines over the summer when they took to the streets to protest a climate change policy that will cap nitrogen emissions and lead to mass job loss.
The policy in question would require Dutch businesses to reduce nitrogen emissions nationwide by 50% and up to 95% in some provinces by 2030, with cows and fertilizers being significant contributors.
“The honest message … is that not all farmers can continue their business,” a government statement read at the time.
