So it has been big news that the anti-GMO Bill 2491 was vetoed by Mayor Carvalho just a few days ago. Did you ever think that it would be peaceful, calm, and quiet?
It is not a surprise that the same activists who disrespect farmers, graffiti roadways, threaten to destroy crops and equipment, and put nasty commentaries all over the social media have shown their true colors once again for all to see. They can’t see that there are flaws in the bill that would cause significant headaches for the county to deal with based on existing statutes already in place. One of them being the Hawaii Right to Farm Act.
Just read the commentary coming out from the Babes Against Biotech leader, Nomi Carmona.
Then go to her Babes Against Biotech page and you’ll find many more lovely comments about the Mayor’s decision to veto the flawed law.
Let’s call the Mayor lovely names by James Kealii Kam.
Then another one from Michael Huskey criticizing the Mayor.
Then there is Jason Kalani who promotes the use of violence and threats to get their way.
Don’t forget what Ricky Murray has to say about the Mayor.
Here’s more lovingly written comments on the Hawaii News Now post about the veto by Kristin Steinkamp and Bigkine.
Here’s another winning comment by Mahea N Umi, of course not backed up by evidence, just heresy:
And another one from Stephanie Bogan, of course downplaying the threatening language being used as acceptable due to laws for freedom of speech:
Then there is Rey Kamakani and his lovely quote to the mayor:
And let’s also not forget some new comments about GMO that came out right after the veto on the Hawaii GMO Justice Coalition page.
Here’s a very nice person named Donna French who has a clear message to send to biotech supporters:
Then there is another person named Patric Coan who has a lot to say about his plans for biotech crops:
Then there is also the GMO reaper on Kauai:
And yet another one from Kurtis Kunesh.
We can’t forget that the very person who insisted on passing this law (his initials are G.H.) did not even consider preexisting statutes that would jeopardize it. Didn’t he and the other County Council members take an oath of office, same as Mayor Carvalho?
“I solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully support the Constitution and laws of the United States of America, the Constitution and laws of the State of Hawaii and the Charter and laws of the County of Kauai, and conscientiously and impartially discharge my duties as ________ of the County of Kauai.”
He continues to refuse to acknowledge that this hate is being spewed by the very activists he supports. Its like it doesn’t exist in his eyes. He just continually incites the A’oles with the same information not even bothering to actually state the facts to them about the existing statutes and legal issues. Could this be a way of keeping people in the dark, just like the tactics of Babes Against Biotech and Hawaii GMO Justice Coalition?
His son unfortunately is no different in that he didn’t even bother to read the attorney general’s opinion on the law or even consider the fact that it was flawed to begin with. Which politician is adhering to their oath of office to uphold the laws of the state, federal, and county? It’s the mayor. But these folks are now ticked off and don’t care how they express it.
Many activists feel that it is their “right” to act the way they want because they are unhappy. But do they indeed have the evidence and data to support what they are saying? No, never, and all that is evident are hateful comments like these, with no basis in truth or fact. These are indeed the faces of the anti-GMO movement here in Kauai but many news articles state otherwise that they do not represent the movement. Are you kidding?
Look in the mirror and see if you’d like others to remember you that way, captured on the social media forever. Is there room for yelling, threats of riots and violence in law making? Of course, I’d probably get a comment here saying once again that there is no aloha on my point of view. Really? Everything is justified and it doesn’t matter how its done? Remember, that if you are posting threats, say rotten stuff, calling that there is no aloha, stop posting and doing stuff that is reflective of that. Then there would be nothing to write about on this blog. It is hopeful, but not likely at this point.
