A major Dutch politician is warning the country could be on the brink of civil war over the lockdowns. Thousands of people in cities across the country have taken to the streets protesting the lockdowns that includes only allowing essential workers to leave their homes between 9 pm and 4:30 am.
Unfortunately, these protests are turning violent. But some believe this violence reveals that otherwise law biding citizens have reached a breaking point and want their country back.
Meanwhile, the ones making the lockdown decisions (politicians and bureaucrats) have lost all contact with reality as they continue to receive full pay checks, while their citizens suffer.
The Western Journal explains:
The mayor of one of the largest cities in the Netherlands is predicting that a showdown between citizens forced into lockdowns and those behind the institution of those lockdowns could spark a “civil war.”
Many Dutch citizens are apparently not taking too well to being forced into halting their lives almost a year into the coronavirus pandemic. Protests against lockdowns, curfews and other mandates have descended into full-scale riots between citizens and police officers in recent days, according to numerous reports. […]
John Jorritsma, the mayor of Eindhoven, which is the country’s fifth-largest city, predicted a potentially dark outcome on Tuesday.
After using not-so-cooled language, such as branding the anti-lockdown activists as “the scum of the earth,” Jorritsma told reporters at a media briefing that the country could face a civil war.
