One country just set the stage for a global lockdown.
Their citizens are enduring the most oppressive tyranny imaginable.
Now, America’s public health bureaucrats are looking to follow their lead.
The Netherlands, just like Australia before them, used to be a free country.
Like so much of Western Europe, they modeled themselves as a beacon of freedom to the rest of the world.
Now that has been completely shattered. And they are beginning to look a lot more like Communist China than like a free country.
According to a report from The Hill, “The Netherlands is imposing a weeks-long nationwide lockdown amid a surge of cases caused by the new omicron variant.”
The word “cases” in that report is key, because the omicron variant is incredibly mild, and causes nothing more than a mild case of the flu in everyone except the oldest and sickest people.
The report continues, “Prime Minister Mark Rutte announced Saturday that nonessential stores, bars, and restaurants will be shut down from Sunday until Jan. 14 and that schools will be shut down until Jan. 9.”
It’s not just the Netherlands, either. This authoritarianism is spreading like wildfire all across Europe.
In fact, authoritarianism, not COVID, might be the worst disease hitting the world right now, as evidenced by the number of world leaders that are becoming addicted to it.
“The Netherlands is now at the forefront of a number of European countries tightening restrictions as the omicron variant spreads across the continent.”
Already, the Netherlands has erupted into violence as the people have started to fight back against these oppressive measures.
This backlash has led to a crackdown from authorities on protestors.
A report from News.Com.AU states that “The Netherlands has been rocked by violence after a fresh Covid lockdown sparked a bitter backlash.”
“Demonstrators gathered in The Hague on Saturday in the wake of the lockdown announcement, while shocking images also emerged from Rotterdam, where about 1000 protestors broke the public health orders to gather outside the city’s main football stadium.”
Police arrested 64 people for exercising their right to protest their own government, which has now been made illegal in the Netherlands as well as countries such as Australia.
UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has also refused to rule out locking down his citizens.
As has been the case repeatedly since the pandemic began, U.S. health authorities are looking closely at these authoritarian leaders for ideas about how to oppress Americans.
Anthony Fauci has already suggested that the restrictions which will soon be put in place to respond to “Omicron” will never be lifted.
And U.S. health bureaucrats are ordering Americans not to spend time with their families this Christmas.
The Western world is crumbling over the power-hungry authoritarianism of its leaders, and the meek submissiveness of many of its citizens, who are scared of even the smallest risks.
Omicron is a virus that causes mild sickness, just like so many other viruses that we have dealt with for generations.
But that is now too much for Western leaders, and so once again freedom is being taken away in the name of “safety.”
