Farmers Speaking Up for Ag Become Targets

Social media gives us lots of opportunities to voice our opinions.  But if you are a farmer who voices your support for biotechnology or agricultural science, you can expect the A’oles to come out roaring.

There’s so many problems with this issue.  I find it rather sad to see that people can stoop down to this level towards our farmers here in Hawaii.  Here are some examples of what activists do to farmer’s on their Yelp pages:

Here’s yet another post on an article a farmer commented on that two folks decided to openly state their pleasure with.

What kind of environment have we created with these kinds of bills being proposed by our leaders? Where’s the aloha spirit towards differing opinions?  There are none because anyone who speaks up in support of the actual scientific evidence becomes a target.
