Groundbreaking Discovery by the Babes Against Biotech!

The Babes Against Biotech have made an amazing groundbreaking discovery on the island of Oahu!  Read what they have to say about this discovery below in one of their posts with a video of this event on Facebook:

Note that there are 34 people who “like” this and another 137 who shared this post too! How many people are we spreading rumors to before actually doing some research first? This post is meant to just be inflammatory towards biotech as it contains all the typical propaganda of the A’oles.  For lazy Hawaii people who don’t bother to research what is being said, it will ring true to them for now, only to be debunked later.

If they actually did a bit more detective work before posting this, they would realize that there is no such thing as a GMO melon or any such tests being conducted here in Hawaii. The more likely possibility is that this indeed is Monsanto’s fields that are subleased to another company who also subleases it to a melon farmer.  And that melon farmer is probably Sugarland Farms, who grows his melons out in Kunia!

Like someone once told us, that is why these women are not called the Intelligent Women Against Biotech.

What did you say???

bullshit

The A’ole GMO club likes to use the powerful reach of the internet to claim the most outrageous “facts.” Here are some of my favorites:

Meet this lovely young lady who posted this comment on a biotech page:

CL

Someone needs to tell this young lady that there is something called the NOP, or National Organic Program.  It even has a list of approved chemicals for use on organic farms.  I have a feeling that she doesn’t quite understand what chemicals mean.  Let’s start with education about atoms, electrons, etc…

Also, I did receive this tweet that chemicals grow chemicals from someone wanting the Kauai A’ole GMO bill to pass:

ritte

I can’t quite figure out how chemicals grow chemicals because mine haven’t changed or grown yet.

Meet our professed farmer friend who also posted this comment:

Unbelievable that GMO sources are being used to get Vitamin C.  Vitamin C is also know as ascorbic acid.  Where ever the source is, it will never contain GMO because it is a chemical as in all vitamins.  Now where do we find DNA?  Living things!  He’s been reading way too much from the Organic Consumer’s Association.

Here’s a very insightful comment posted on a farm page:

ignorant ban

Interesting enough that so many A’ole GMO club members continue to state that GMOs are deadly when over three trillion meals have been served and not a single documented death or illness has occurred.  That doesn’t happen in the other industry where deaths and illness have been happening more than they’d like to admit.  How can this be???

Here’s a lovely pair of comments that go together like peanut butter and jelly as Hawaii GMO Justice Coalition stated previously:

eatgmos

For one, if we say that eating GMOs makes one infertile, how in the world can biotech companies ever poison these children if they are never even born???  And if we were all poisoned by the evil companies feeding us GMOs, what good are dead consumers no longer alive and able to buy their products?  Hmm… You poison your customers, make them infertile and dead, who’s left to fill the coffers of money?

You know you really don’t know anything about genetics when you make this kind of comment that only A’ole would agree with:

fishgenes

If you really want to know what’s wrong with this, learn from National Geographic’s article on genetics.  There’s a great educational game on that page that each and every A’ole should do instead of reading Natural News and other bunk sites.

Meet this Mom who is GMO Free and also free of some neurons:

btrachel

Bt toxin and papayas eh?  Let’s do some research about Bt and what its used for.  It’s used to control a type of worm!  So is it worms that are affecting the papayas?  Uh, no, Mrs. GMO Free Mom!  Do your research and you’ll find it is something else called papaya ringspot virus!

When you read stuff on the internet and hear about it over and over, if you don’t have much of an education, you might just say stuff like this:

apkfauna

If you have very little knowledge about human digestion and physiology, please do not try to sound intelligent.  If you don’t know the difference between fauna and flora, that is why you should not go on the internet and publicly shame yourself.  But then again, some people have no clue that what they are saying is complete nonsense.  Thanks to Mike Gabbard for touting that ‘Roundup causes every disease on earth’ speaker.  We are indeed making for an intelligent population.

When A’oles start to ask this kind of question you know that they don’t quite have a handle on Google:

GMO pineapples

Of course, just the mention of GMO will cause a mass hysteria that there are GMO pineapples.  A quick search avoiding the A’ole sites will give you the answer.  If you’re too lazy to click the link, the answer is that there is no commercially approved pineapples.

Now this is the biggest kicker of the A’oles that GMOs taste bad:

momiyuky vnakrhack

These very smart folks first of all must be eating the trunks of the trees if they think that the rind is woody and that the flesh is white or that they are eating PRSV infected fruits.  And if they think that GMO tastes bad, I’ll just leave this here for them:

I am starting to wonder if you are an A’ole demanding the “right to know,” what good would it actually do for furthering their knowledge?  Many of them claim they already “know” everything about the dangers that GMOs represent because they’ve pulled all their “facts” from fear mongering propaganda websites.  Then we find out that none of their claims actually stand up to legitimate scientific and fact-based scrutiny.  And then we have the moronic and totally false comments such as the ones I just covered.  Should we really be getting our dose of why we have a “right to know” from these folks?  If you want to sound smart, then get educated about the issues and stop spouting off crank statements that then make others look ignorant and moronic when they start parroting the same hogwash.  We also have a “right to know” if we are being misled by the anti-GMO fear propaganda machine.

The Bold and the Brave A’oles

One thing that I find amazing with the A’ole GMO club is that they are quite brave to go out on the social media and actually post some of the things they do.  Not just the bad and threatening ones but ones that “try” to make them sound intelligent.  One should never try to sound intelligent because it will get picked apart by a more educated person and then get the commenter all up in arms about it.  For the folks who are what A’oles call the “sheeple,” or the ones who don’t really care about the issue, or other A’oles who can’t tell an atom from an electron, these posts are just amazing to me.  They just reflect the education level of these folks.

Here’s a great example of a tweet from an article about the anti-GMO Bill 79 story:

akamai romano

This commenter obviously has no clue that not only synthetic pesticides can kill people, but so can organic pesticides.  She can’t even get the term correct about our intestinal system (body fauna?!).  I think she might be referring to something such as:

Another entertaining tweet to the educated but terrifying to the misinformed would be something like this mother’s one.

btrachel

If this mom actually understood the differences in the types of genetic engineering being used for papaya and corn, she would realize how ridiculously false her claim is.   Bt is needed in corn because of a the corn borer worm that is the pest.  Papaya is engineered to resist a virus.  To state that papaya has Bt toxin is ludicrous.  Why would a corn borer be on a papaya?!  A’oles are quick to boast their findings and show their expertise.  Not!

So these quite intelligent folks are the very ones screaming for the GMO label and their “Right to Know,” but really, do they know anything at all?
