The War on Farmers

The Hypocrisy and Lunacy of Carbon Taxes on Agriculture: A Veiled Assault on Farmers

In a grand display of political theater, European politicians have unveiled their latest masterpiece: carbon taxes on agriculture. Ostensibly designed to combat climate change, these taxes are nothing more than a thinly veiled attack orchestrated by large corporations and ultra-high-net-worth individuals. Their real aim? To force hardworking farmers out of business and seize their properties.

The Great Carbon Tax Charade

Let’s cut through the pretense. The imposition of carbon taxes on agriculture is a classic case of hypocrisy and lunacy. Farmers, those stewards of our land who work tirelessly from dawn till dusk, are now being targeted for the sin of greenhouse gas emissions—specifically, methane belched by cows. But let's get real: this isn’t about saving the planet. It’s about dismantling a sector that stands in the way of corporate expansion and elite interests.

These taxes, starting at $115 per cow and escalating to $280 by 2035, will drive up costs so high that farmers won’t be able to compete. The result? Farms will close, and agricultural land will flood the market, ripe for acquisition by corporate giants and the ultra-wealthy. These new landowners will then turn the land to their advantage, often prioritizing profit over sustainability.

A Farce Disguised as Virtue

The irony is almost comical. Politicians preach about the importance of saving the planet while implementing policies that will decimate our agricultural base. They present themselves as environmental champions, all the while orchestrating a scheme to push small farmers out of business and consolidate land into fewer, more controllable hands. This isn't environmentalism; it’s a corporate land grab masquerading as climate action.

Moreover, the supposed solutions offered—like adjusting livestock feed to reduce methane—are ignored. Instead, the focus is on punitive taxes that will only exacerbate the problems they claim to address. It’s as if these policymakers are operating under the belief that the best way to save the planet is to eliminate the very people who manage its land.

A Godless Agenda

European politicians pushing these agendas seem to have a moral compass that’s decidedly askew. Their decisions reveal a chilling disregard for the people they’re supposed to serve. They are detached from the reality of rural life and are clearly more interested in catering to the whims of the corporate elite than in the well-being of their constituents.

This godless approach to policy-making is emblematic of a broader trend where the needs of ordinary people are sacrificed on the altar of profit and power. The idea that hardworking farmers are being sacrificed for the benefit of corporate titans and billionaires is both tragic and infuriating.

The Real Agenda

Let’s not kid ourselves—this isn’t about saving the environment. It’s about leveraging climate concerns to enact a hostile takeover of agricultural land. By driving up operational costs and pushing farmers out of the industry, the political and corporate elite are making way for themselves to control vast swaths of farmland. And while they continue to preach about their commitment to the planet, they’re laughing all the way to the bank.

Conclusion: A Call for Action

It’s high time we call out this charade for what it is: a blatant attack on the people who feed us, orchestrated by those who stand to gain the most from their downfall. European politicians may claim to be acting in the name of climate justice, but the truth is far more sinister. Their actions are driven by a godless agenda that values profits over people and power over principle.

As we face this onslaught, we must stand in solidarity with our farmers, challenge these hypocritical policies, and demand a return to policies that truly reflect the values of fairness, integrity, and genuine environmental stewardship.

Dear Political Class
