Inciting the Mob: Let the Fear Mongers Unite!

Bring on the FEAR MONGERING once again!  The seed companies have filed a lawsuit against the county which comes as no surprise.  The health studies and environmental studies found nothing to support their claims so time to spread more and more fear.

Just to start off the day, GMO Free USA posts this meme of a baby with a condition called gastroschisis.  It is nice and scary and attempts to make the uneducated social media follower think that the seed companies have something to do with this.

Of course, few of the A’oles would ever know what the condition is but will automatically correlate biotech with this birth defect.  However, a skeptical reader will attempt to look further than just a picture for their information and find that there is no known causes of this defect .  It is a very rare condition but the meme implies that this is a very common occurrence which the data does not support.

Another scary picture posted of Facebook recently was this condition called polydactly by a well known A’ole radio personality.  She purports to link this to working on the seed farms.

Well, when you look up this condition more, you find that it is genetic and has no link to GMOs.  People have been experiencing this condition long before biotech was even heard of!

Remember that just because your read or saw it on your friend’s Facebook page, it doesn’t make their claims completely true.  The goal of the A’oles is to create fear and doubt to win the masses to created mob rule.  Mob rule based in fear and misinformation has worked well because of politicians afraid of losing their seats in this year’s election!
