When you think of a congresswoman, wouldn’t you think of someone who is well educated, level headed, and can think on her own two feet about the issues? Well, I used to think that of these elected officials, but my mind has changed. I’ve come to realize that some of our congress people are only willing to listen the loudest of the bunch and probably are part of the activist groups that continue to spread A’ole Aloha in Hawaii to further divide communities.
How we know that Ms. Gabbard is part of the Honeys as I call them is based on things I have seen her posting on their Facebook page back several months ago. She clearly wears Monsanto glasses like so many others that have the same infliction.
She has also aligned with other A’ole GMO pro label congress people and continues to spread the word about this perceived evil of Monsanto. Forget the fact that Monsanto is not the only biotech company that sells seeds.
You know that she is against technology when she responds to the Babes Against Biotech’s post accusing Truth About Trade and Technology of propaganda.
Not only does she continually harp on Monsanto in the social media but she even sends out emails professing her intentions against the popular target of the A’ole GMO club:
Why is she so hell bent on bashing Monsanto and so anti-technology? You know the term follow the money, well let’s see…
Note that Down to Earth and Noni Connection are on the top of the contributors list and are tied to the organic industry. She and her father also started a non-profit, Healthy Hawaii Coalition where they also push for their environmentally friendly messages and go organic campaign. Note that this campaign was even funded by taxpayer dollars at $25K without any bidding. Taxpayer’s dollars are being used for A’ole GMO activism!
Being concerned about the many farmer constituents in her district, I decided to go on the social media and voice my opinion of her stance and actions as well as call her out for only taking one side on the issue. The farmers and ranchers that use biotechnology in their work need to be heard.
I indeed emailed her and her team nearly 3 months ago with not a single response back. So we can guess that she is not supporting all farmers, including those who use bio-technology, which is sad. She acknowledged that she went to the A’ole GMO Seed Exchange and to ONE Maui farm, but that was it. She is also sponsoring a label for GMO foods but neither acknowledges a request for education along with it. The lack of a response and her correspondence with farmers and her alliances with activists only tell us one thing. This is the kind of leader she is:
She is yet another opportunistic politician guilty of not researching her evidence and continually creating divisiveness and a lack of aloha in our communities. I would be way more impressed if she took just a few minutes to listen to the farmers but unfortunately she values the voices of these people instead:
(Notice how this video wants a ban on GMOs yet later these same people will state that they want a label. Just like Tulsi wanting a label, but more likely disguised as a ban.)
(Note how Tulsi’s friends protest fields being poison and wear masks. If it is so poisonous, why are you wearing tank tops and shorts?)
Amazing the alliances Congresswoman Gabbard has made!
