Once again, the anti-GMO club is up in arms with the latest Star Advertiser article that was headline news regarding the lawsuit by papaya farmers. One of which is a State Senator, Russell Ruderman, who wrote a letter to the editor in today’s paper(subscription needed).
Here’s a statement that he made in his letter to the editor…
For all of us involved in the GMO issue, it is clear that an individual farmer is an inappropriate target for GMO anger, and no one advocates vandalism.
Senator Ruderman must not live here in Hawaii because he clearly does not know about the threats that have been made by the very activists he supports. Just look what has been said here in the Hawaii social media scene.
Of course he aligns with these folks too…
If you saw all of this on the social media, as a farmer, what would you think? Ruderman apparently thinks that there is nothing to worry about! We all know that he’s participating in the misinformation campaign himself.
Senator Ruderman, why do you keep associating with these people and fear mongering yourself? You and other activists have created so much fear in people that people have turned that fear into hate towards this technology. It’s sad that a leader is fanning the flames of fear also during work time at the legislature.
You must clearly know that it is safe because you do consume foods that are GMOs while at fundraisers and also wear it on your back. Could it be profit over people for your Islands Natural Food stores?
And, how does he know that it isn’t an anti-GMO activist destroying crops? Is he that close and that he knows this bit of information?
