Thousands of German farmers drove their farm equipment into Berlin to protest a government plan to get rid of tax breaks for diesel. This would present a major cost increase for farmers.
Why are they doing this? To plug a €17 billion Euro hole in the country’s budget. They’ve gotta take it from somewhere so…to the farmers’ bottom line, right?
Germany has pledged to double financial support for Ukraine next year. The government has also allocated €60 billion to “combat climate change and modernize the country.”
So wait…they want to combat climate change but support war. Maybe someone should tell them that war is not eco-friendly and that attacking farmers as a first line hasn’t worked out well for other politicians in Europe.
