COPENHAGEN — Bilderberg attendees — about 150 of the world’s most influential globalists who meet behind closed doors once a year — should be more transparent about what is discussed there. At least that is the message of one summit attendee, a Big Government-minded lawmaker and sustainable-development zealot from Holland, who emerged from the shadowy conference today for a rare conversation with protesters and journalists assembled outside.
In the early afternoon, as citizens and reporters were starting to converge outside the Bilderberg summit surrounded by throngs of police, Dutch Parliamentary leader Diederik Samsom (shown) popped up on the other side of the fence with a man who appeared to be a security guard. The protesters and the press had already been corralled into a fenced-in parking lot. Still, there were multiple opportunities for questions through the wire.
Samsom happily responded, spending much of his brief time outside the hotel explaining the purported rationale behind the paranoia and obsession with secrecy among Bilderberg attendees. “If there is a camera in there, you know, you behave different with the camera and I don’t want people to behave different, so I think it’s a good thing that for once you have three hours in a meeting,” the Dutch parliamentarian claimed. “But I do agree that after such a meeting, people should go out, like me, and tell you what we discussed.”
Indeed, the environmentalist and chief of the Socialist International-aligned Dutch Labor Party tried hard to make the secretive meeting seem like a mere discussion forum. Furious citizens outside, though, were not buying it. From decrying what globalists often refer to as the “New World Order” and lambasting government tyranny to slamming the secret meeting and blasting genetic engineering, enraged citizens from across the political spectrum shouted questions and complaints at the grinning attendee.
Why the secrecy? “We as politicians, we haggle every day with daily business,” he told a gathering of about two dozen or so journalists and protesters through the fence. “For me as a politician, it’s good to have three days — a bit more time, not five minutes for discussion, but two hours. It’s nice to get out of there and go three days to have meetings about new energy, about the future, about what Europe’s going to do, how should we get peace in the Middle East, what’s happening in Ukraine — those kinds of questions that me and you are all thinking about.”
Before he even finished, people in the crowd were shouting more questions and criticism as traffic roared in the background. “When you talked about depopulation before, you sounded like a eugenics agent,” declared a Danish woman among the protesters, who earlier had been singing a song with some other Danes about the evils of the New World Order, George Bush, Barack Obama, and their alleged Danish collaborators. More than a few Bilderberg attendees — Henry Kissinger, Bill Gates, and members of the Rockefeller dynasty, for example — are notorious for supporting eugenics and depopulation.
Samsom, however, grinning wide, denied that he was a eugenicist to the woman with concerns about eugenics and depopulation. “If I sounded like that, I’m sorry. I’m not,” he told her. “For instance, Denmark and the Netherlands are both countries with a population that gets older and older, which is a good thing, because we’re more healthy.”
The woman, citing genetically modified organisms (GMO) in the food supply and dangerous psychiatric drugs, responded by saying that people were actually not getting healthier. Like Samsom, GMO giant Monsanto is a strong supporter of United Nations "sustainability" and Agenda 21. Another man in the crowd demanded to know whether Samsom knew about the dangers of GMOs. “I know all about it, I was a former Greenpeace activist,” the Dutch politician responded. “I worked for Greenpeace.”
More alarms bells among the crowd. “Greenpeace is also New World Order,” responded the same woman, who earlier had told The New American that she helped organize local protests against the Bilderberg using Facebook and social media. Along with fellow citizens, the woman said she was there to express her displeasure with Bilderberg and the global agenda to oppress humanity.
“We must have peace if the world shall go on,” she said, translating a song she had been singing earlier to guitar music with some friends. “You’re like sheeple saying bahahaha, but now the people are waking up.”
As the barrage of criticism continued — everything from the euro and the European Union to the wars and the United Nations came under fire — Samsom told the protesters and journalists that he needed to go back inside. However, he promised to come back out later to continue the chat. One protester, though, demanded Samsom answer another question: Why are citizens not allowed to know what is going on at the Bilderberg summit if there is nothing to hide?
“That’s why I come out and tell you,” Samsom responded. “One explanation is that if you are in a meeting with about 15 or 20 people — now it’s 100 people — I want them to speak freely to me; free, because then I learn more. I didn’t sign anything, I didn’t sign anything.”
Of course, that is the usual line offered by Bilderberg attendees. For the growing number of critics worldwide, though, that is not a satisfactory answer — especially considering numerous past admissions by Bilderberg attendees about the oversized role the summits play in shaping global trends.
Samsom was getting ready to go. Suddenly, a man in the audience claimed Bilderberg had decided to allow fracking in Denmark and that it was bad for the groundwater, catching the politician’s attention.
“That’s a good discussion. Fracking is something that has obvious downsides to the environment,” Samsom claimed without elaborating, contradicting the opinion of countless experts who say fracking generally has no effect whatsoever on water supplies. “You get gas out of the ground, which has obvious advantages: energy. And that’s a dilemma. But in the end, democracy discusses a dilemma and decides. It’s not a business that decides.”
The young man insisted that fracking was “destroying the earth.” Samsom, unsurprisingly in light of his Big Green credentials, wholeheartedly agreed. “I happen to agree with you on this issue,” he told the concerned citizen. “There are many issues I don’t agree with you on, but this issue I agree with you. To be honest, in the Netherlands, we [the Labor Party] have 38 seats out of 150, and there are a lot of people that want fracking because they want cheap energy; it’s something that people like.” Top figures in Big Oil and Big Green are regularly involved in Bilderberg.
The Dutch politician again said he needed to go and began walking away. Immediately, the questions and outraged criticism began flying once again. “Tesla already discovered free energy,” exclaimed one. Another protester shouted: “Tell us, do you care about the children you torture?”
Across the parking lot, other demonstrators began shouting at Samsom through a bull horn. The banners blasting Bilderberg went back up as protesters tried to make sure the coalition of prominent globalists in the Marriot Hotel across the street could see them.
After Samsom walked away, the assembled protesters and journalists began talking to each other. At first, nobody knew who he was. Most seemed to agree, though, that the politician they had just spoken with was probably a low-level lackey whose foray amid the serfs was orchestrated by Bilderberg luminaries as a deceptive token of goodwill.
One young man who spoke with The New American afterwards, for example, said Greenpeace was just a “tool” of the communists and the “New World Order” used to advance the subjugation of humanity with largely phony environmental concerns. “Greenpeace was totally infiltrated by the communists, so they’re working for the New World Order too,” he said, with his friend nodding strongly in agreement.
Corralled like farm animals into the dusty parking lot, protesters began milling around with police again, joking, filming each other, singing, and describing what they said were the evil fruits of the “New World Order” so desperately — and now, increasingly, openly — sought by Bilderberg attendees. Among the most common complaints expressed by those who spoke with The New American: Global government, the banking cartel and its fiat monetary regime, the unaccountable EU and its destruction of sovereignty and self-government, the never-ending wars, and more.
The New American also reached out to Bilderberg organizers requesting comments and on-camera interviews with attendees. “As ever, in order to encourage the highest level of openness and dialogue among the participants during the conference, the Bilderberg meeting is closed to reporting journalists,” the self-described “Bilderberg media team” said in an e-mail. “While we would have liked to help you with your request, we regret to inform you that we cannot provide any interviews this week.”
Despite the brief chat between Samsom and protesters, the veil of secrecy surrounding the official Bilderberg agenda remains.
