Tribunal or the bullet?
On the day that almost the entire population, including political leaders, reacted in shock to a statement by Pepijn van Houwelingen to Sjoerd Sjoerdsma that he would have to answer for his actions before a tribunal, live ammunition was fired in Rotterdam.
Of course, the word tribunal is reminiscent of WWII, including the trial of war criminals. But someone who has nothing to fear can face a tribunal relaxed. When pronouncing the word tribunal, Pippin is accused of suggesting that a (fair) tribunal would be synonymous with a firing squad. Nothing is less true.
It is different during the riots (demonstration) in Rotterdam. If riots have really broken out and this can only be blamed on the rioters, those guests will be arrested and properly tried. However, the reality is different. live ammunition was fired, causing serious injuries (now dead?). Are rioters so criminal that they can be summarily shot? Without the intervention of a judge? Or perhaps through a tribunal?
The Netherlands is on the brink of civil war, after political divisions have sowed in particular by deploying indoctrination, lies and degrading measures.
Even people who abhor violence are willing to confront it. A confrontation with - according to witnesses with certainty - Polish and/or Romanian speaking agents, who are bred to beat up defenseless and peaceful demonstrators. Where Australian officers were equipped with rubber bullets, here it is sharpshooting. Those responsible (Aboutaleb, Rutte, De Jonge, Grapperhaus and many others) should be tried by independent and honest judges, if necessary from abroad. Remarkable that Holleeder is still alive, while he was really up to more than throwing stones and rioting.
The riots, whether provoked or not, can never be justified in normal situations. Respect for other opinions and other people's property is part of a civilized country. Then picking up is no problem. If rioters - of whatever origin - are sentenced to community service, a number of weeks in prison and/or pay the damage, everyone would find this reasonable to justified. By police brutality, Protestants (not the church) have essentially been summarily shot in front of a firing squad. Unpalatable but supported by the government. A government that should be there for the citizens is now prepared to mask its own failure by provoking a revolution. Even worthy of a tribunal.
Comparisons with the 2e WO always go wrong. Mengele experimented with people to arrive at a pure Germanic race, mainly using identical twins. We are now faced with an experimental 'vaccine' that does not affect a large number of twins, but that the entire population must be 'infected' with. WWII machine guns have been exchanged for syringes. Back then, NSB members were the enemies of resistance fighters, now extra funds are being earmarked for training BOAs. Those funds do not go to extra (IC) beds, but to frustrated nobody's to betray and molest Medelanders.
Then citing a tribunal is not so strange and certainly not incendiary. Not even considering all the lies and false promises of potential tribunal candidates. Lies and deceit that have caused a division. This dichotomy has been consciously rolled out to portray thoughtful vaccine objectors as irresponsible Wappies (a credit to the resistance fighters of our time!) and cause of the constant infections, despite all the syringes and boosters.
As it now appears, the conditions for a civil revolt are in place. Even if only to consider honestly through a tribunal whether the policy persons (cabinet, House of Representatives, OMT, RIVM, Lareb, etc.) have acted correctly, or whether they have knowingly caused a lot of unnecessary misery. Many experts who have been officially silenced indicate that an expansion of care (staff and bed capacity), abolition of PCR tests and the use of Ivermectin) could have prevented many deaths and dichotomy a year ago, from all the additional damage (disruption of the economy and health problems such as stress and relationship problems with quite a few suicides) not to mention.
Salient detail: doctors who administer HCQ or Ivermectin to c patients in good faith risk a € 150.000 fine, while all those patients can be cured without significant side effects and are then resistant. Ivermectin was freely available at drugstores, no longer due to government intervention! If we really are in the middle of a pandemic, then every means that helps will be used, right? This is partly why the question is: what is the real reason to call a nasty flu a pandemic? A lot of Wappies know it!
I am not for violence myself, but certain processes are unstoppable. If it does come to a revolution, it must be prevented that intervention by, for example, Brussels, an even worse dictatorship is inaugurated by Wimpie A., to succeed 11 years of Rutte. Then a plan must be ready, in which a self-enriching elite again takes charge, but in which the people are involved in decision-making. There is such a plan: https://alternatiefstaatsbestel.nl
After the implementation of this AS plan, voters determine, we get party-independent, but professional champions in policy places and judges are appointed party-politically independent, always for a certain period of time.
Now many judges are doing what the elite tell them to do, backed by the law-abiding, boxed-in media. De Telegraaf and NRC were wrong during the war, now all msm. That too is possible, must be different.
