If find it very interesting that my blog is getting a lot of complaints on the social media by the A’ole GMO club, and claims that there is no aloha on both sides.
A screaming mother posted this “apology” stating this claim:
I can’t quite figure out why a farmer would just come out of the blue screaming and sticking the finger unless something was antagonizing him to begin with, but that is yet another story. And why are you also bringing your young kids to an activist event where you know you’ll piss people off? Remember A’oles, that it just takes one bad misstep and your name will live in infamy to millions. Thanks to the social media, it will be perpetuated in eternity, so just don’t do that!
Back on topic for tonight… Where is the no aloha on both sides? What I have seen and been replied to when questioning some of the comments from the A’oles is some of the following:
Some of my favorite Kauai A’oles came a taunting the other night on the Pacific Business News post on Sept. 21, when I responded to the post pertaining to what questions would you ask the editorial board. I simply posted a question and this is what ensued after that. The A’oles hate when they think their forum is being infringed upon and when that happens, you get a nice name… Troll! Can I then say hypocrisy because the same accusers will frequently go on to pro-science sites and go ape crap all over it!
Here’s a bit more of the conversation that continued on that page by these A’oles:
Prior to that commentary with these A’oles, several months back on the Hawaii Ag post about papayas, several of them decided to voice their opinions about it. I had to speak up to to temper some of the nasty comments they were making and some of the misinformation being spread and one of the same A’oles from the previous commentary decided to do the same thing:
I just could not resist going to the farmer’s market and countering the claims that papayas are poisonous. And this is what I get as a response from an A’ole:
One of my favorite responses from A’oles when they have no coherent arguments left is:
It is amazingly odd that they want one to eat poison GMOs and then tell a person something enlightening and peaceful. What a tale of irony indeed!
What is even more odd is that they will tell me to “Go eat your GMOs,” then start to question themselves and ask what I eat or feed my family. Obviously you made such a bold statement that you must know but something is making you doubt it??? Got to love the same old verbiage of “it’s banned” and “get biotech out.”
Well, I still ask A’oles who feel that they have been threatened or harassed to please clarify and give specifics. Several of them have complained and said that they were being made targets and I told them, “Please share it so that we can be aware of it.” So far, all I got was this one:
