After seeing numerous hate comments and nastiness among the A’ole crowd, I started asking myself as to why these folks seem to not embody the local style spirit? Do these folks, who are demonizing farmers across our state, have any roots to plantation style culture? To me, they do not speak or act with the rubbah slippah folks, a term coined by Richard Ha. Let’s see who these folks really are…
Nomi Carmona of the Babes Against Biotech: Ms. No Aloha #1 from Corona, California
The leader of the Babes Against Biotech is Nomi Carmona. She loves to speak in her Hawaiian phrases and such and says how she wants to protect the aina. Lo and behold, her home aina is not Hawaii! Maybe her name needs to be Nomi California!
Jessica Mitchell aka Senator Nishihara’s “Go Back to Japan” Girl and Babes Against Biotech from Sacramento, California
Another notorious BAB is Jessica Mitchell, who made her name known across the land as the “Go Back to Japan” message to Senator Nishihara. What would happen if someone left her a message, “Go back to California!”
Representative Jessica Wooley “I want a label” legislator and I Love BABs from Scottsdale, Arizona
She has her roots in the local plantation style ways because she was born and raised on the plantations of Arizona and schooled in California.
Earthjustice Attorney Paul Achitoff “GMOs are being shoved down our throats” lawyer not from Hawaii
He speaks for the local people every since he landed in Hawaii in 1990. Definitely has his roots in local ways and ancestors from the plantations. He’s protecting farmers too? Really?

Take a look at more “local” faces from the Kauai Midweek… Where’s the descendants from the plantation workers???
Now that you’ve seen the faces and where they are from, look at what they have said publicly to others across the social media…
The vile comments seen here make it very obvious and clear that these people are not the rubbah slippah folks. They can easily speak the lingo of malama the a’ina, and pono, but you can’t find a shred of it in what they say or do to farmers and others. These people never knew what “small kid time” meant or what it means to be local. They do not share the plantation style values of respect and coexistence that was taught back in those days. This is a well bankrolled campaign paid for by lots of mainland monies to spread mainland values and destroy local ways.
They are not the local voices that should be heard. Time to hear out the real local folks that know how to act and speak the true pono way… The farmers!
