    The Facts

    • The upstart Farmer-citizen movement (BBB) is set to become the largest party in the upper house of parliament following Dutch provincial elections on Wednesday.

    • The BBB party, or BoerBurgerBeweging, soared to national prominence after widespread protests against the government’s climate and environment policies, and it's set to win more Senate seats than PM Mark Rutte’s conservative VVD party.

    The Spin

    Establishment-critical narrative

    This is a big win for the BBB — and the Dutch people in general — which has fought back against globalist tyranny. While the EU shills in the Dutch government tried to destroy Dutch farming and essentially confiscate land illegally, Dutch voters have said “enough is enough” and stood up for their rights, proving that people can still stand together and send a shocking blow to the establishment.

    Pro-establishment narrative

    The Dutch elections are a scary reminder of how conspiracy theories and anti-establishment rhetoric can infect national, and even global, politics. Dutch extremists pedaled dangerous ideas like the “great replacement” theory as well as climate change denial to rally voters. Unfortunately, this type of strategy will likely be echoed in other parts of the world.
