It is worth noting that almost every instance of an ordinary citizen going crazy and killing government agents has come as a direct assault on his property rights. In some cases it’s been linked to eminent domain seizures — e.g. that farmer in Missouri who gunned down two local government surveyors (and then shot himself immediately after) over a “right of way” infringement on his land. (I can’t find a link to the incident, but it happened at least ten years ago and I still remember the salient details.) Here’s a more recent situation of Gummint getting too big for its britches (although as yet, there’s been no gunplay because Amish).
Anyway, all that’s unimportant to this post, because enter Fuckface Kerry:
John Kerry claimed that US farm confiscations are not off the table, as he stated that small farms contribute significant greenhouse gasses.
And no doubt he got his loony idea here:
Recently, the governing body of the European Union officially endorsed measures to compel farmers to vacate their lands as part of the EU’s Natura 2000 scheme, which categorizes farms as significant emitters of nitrogen. Under the plan, farmers would be offered 120 percent of their farm’s value through a “buyout” program. However, those who decline this offer would face the risk of being forcibly removed from their land without any financial compensation.
Farmers in Holland are undergoing the most radical regulations that are causing the culling of herds and destroying crops.
Because the Dutch farmers are unarmed, of course they have to resort to peaceful protests by blocking highways with their tractors.
Our American farmers (and their many supporters) are not similarly disadvantaged, and I think that anything that Fuckface starts is going to make the Cliven Bundy episode look like a Sunday church picnic.
Pass the popcorn, Simon.
But why would people need farms when they can just get their food at the store instead?
Or, in Kerry’s case, have other people get it wherever it is the common people go to get food for their betters?
Interestingly, the Amish farmer, Amos Miller, ahs his own website.
In most cases, small farm owners are multi-generation land owners. Your not just taking their land, but the land their father, grandfather, and great-grandfather farmed as well. Yeah, good luck with that.
I’m fixing to inherit some family land that goes back to my great-great-grandfather. I’m not a farmer and really have no plans for it, but damn the state tax burden is so high that I’ll have to do something just to keep it. You really don’t own anything, you just rent from the govt. Property tax is a fucking sin.
It also takes away the hot new buzzword, “Generational Wealth” as the property is taken for bogus reasons.
If Karl Marx had not been such a layabout and actually owned property, his famous saying would not be, “All Property is Theft”, but “All Property Tax is Theft.”
I really thought people would get up in arms over the Kelo v City of New London ruling issued by SCOTUS years ago. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kelo_v._City_of_New_London The place is still devoid of any development. It’s just overgrown, weed infested, debris collecting vacant lots and the property owners have been pushed out.
When do we bring the American classic of tar and feathers back to politicians and bureaucrats?
don’t these people have access to glass wine bottles, rags and fuel? burnout a couple of politicians and bureaucrats will send a powerful message
I have friends in Holland whose farm goes back in their family to the 1700’s. There are engraved white stones set into one corner wall of the huge brick barn, with the initials of each man and wife who owned it over the generations. There are nine stones in the wall.
Stealing that and forcing the family into an apartment would be a crime against humanity.
What do these eco-nazi fools think they are going to eat after they do that? A steady diet of styrofoam hydroponic tomatoes?
Thank God the globalists are so far behind schedule with their disarmament of Americans.
My most valuable property is my body.
And yet, right this minute, some nameless faceless government agents deep in the bowels of some bureaucracy someplace are thinking of ways to Eminent Domain it away from me.
With a ‘duly-elected’ ‘judge’ signing off on the procedure… so it is all legal like.
