The A’ole GMO club likes to use the powerful reach of the internet to claim the most outrageous “facts.” Here are some of my favorites:
Meet this lovely young lady who posted this comment on a biotech page:
Someone needs to tell this young lady that there is something called the NOP, or National Organic Program. It even has a list of approved chemicals for use on organic farms. I have a feeling that she doesn’t quite understand what chemicals mean. Let’s start with education about atoms, electrons, etc…
Also, I did receive this tweet that chemicals grow chemicals from someone wanting the Kauai A’ole GMO bill to pass:
I can’t quite figure out how chemicals grow chemicals because mine haven’t changed or grown yet.
Meet our professed farmer friend who also posted this comment:
Unbelievable that GMO sources are being used to get Vitamin C. Vitamin C is also know as ascorbic acid. Where ever the source is, it will never contain GMO because it is a chemical as in all vitamins. Now where do we find DNA? Living things! He’s been reading way too much from the Organic Consumer’s Association.
Here’s a very insightful comment posted on a farm page:
Interesting enough that so many A’ole GMO club members continue to state that GMOs are deadly when over three trillion meals have been served and not a single documented death or illness has occurred. That doesn’t happen in the other industry where deaths and illness have been happening more than they’d like to admit. How can this be???
Here’s a lovely pair of comments that go together like peanut butter and jelly as Hawaii GMO Justice Coalition stated previously:
For one, if we say that eating GMOs makes one infertile, how in the world can biotech companies ever poison these children if they are never even born??? And if we were all poisoned by the evil companies feeding us GMOs, what good are dead consumers no longer alive and able to buy their products? Hmm… You poison your customers, make them infertile and dead, who’s left to fill the coffers of money?
You know you really don’t know anything about genetics when you make this kind of comment that only A’ole would agree with:
If you really want to know what’s wrong with this, learn from National Geographic’s article on genetics. There’s a great educational game on that page that each and every A’ole should do instead of reading Natural News and other bunk sites.
Meet this Mom who is GMO Free and also free of some neurons:
Bt toxin and papayas eh? Let’s do some research about Bt and what its used for. It’s used to control a type of worm! So is it worms that are affecting the papayas? Uh, no, Mrs. GMO Free Mom! Do your research and you’ll find it is something else called papaya ringspot virus!
When you read stuff on the internet and hear about it over and over, if you don’t have much of an education, you might just say stuff like this:
If you have very little knowledge about human digestion and physiology, please do not try to sound intelligent. If you don’t know the difference between fauna and flora, that is why you should not go on the internet and publicly shame yourself. But then again, some people have no clue that what they are saying is complete nonsense. Thanks to Mike Gabbard for touting that ‘Roundup causes every disease on earth’ speaker. We are indeed making for an intelligent population.
When A’oles start to ask this kind of question you know that they don’t quite have a handle on Google:
Of course, just the mention of GMO will cause a mass hysteria that there are GMO pineapples. A quick search avoiding the A’ole sites will give you the answer. If you’re too lazy to click the link, the answer is that there is no commercially approved pineapples.
Now this is the biggest kicker of the A’oles that GMOs taste bad:
These very smart folks first of all must be eating the trunks of the trees if they think that the rind is woody and that the flesh is white or that they are eating PRSV infected fruits. And if they think that GMO tastes bad, I’ll just leave this here for them:
I am starting to wonder if you are an A’ole demanding the “right to know,” what good would it actually do for furthering their knowledge? Many of them claim they already “know” everything about the dangers that GMOs represent because they’ve pulled all their “facts” from fear mongering propaganda websites. Then we find out that none of their claims actually stand up to legitimate scientific and fact-based scrutiny. And then we have the moronic and totally false comments such as the ones I just covered. Should we really be getting our dose of why we have a “right to know” from these folks? If you want to sound smart, then get educated about the issues and stop spouting off crank statements that then make others look ignorant and moronic when they start parroting the same hogwash. We also have a “right to know” if we are being misled by the anti-GMO fear propaganda machine.
