The Constituents that Wooley, Hooser. & Gabbard Listen To

Jessica Wooley, Gary Hooser, and Tulsi Gabbard proudly proclaim that they are listening to the people when they are supporting bills like labeling.  So who are these people that they are working with?

Just take a look below to meet their constituents…

The Babes Against Biotech Facebook page from their World Food Day March.

This is interesting because many of their supporters and followers were upset about the Boobs Against Biology page.  They like to parody others but then hate to be parodied themselves.

Activists see no problem with this photo. Have your young child carry a sign with an expletive on it so that other children can see it too.  From the Babes Against Biotech Facebook page.

Jessica Wooley, Gary Hooser, and Tulsi Gabbard are always proud to proclaim that they are listening to their constituents.  Really, is this who you’d want to listen to to make laws?  Forget what the farmers have to say about this issue, politicians like them rather align with these folks.  What has been the activists’ contribution to Hawaii agriculture or to feeding people?  Nothing.

Meanwhile, these activists come up to farmers at the farmers’ markets and are asked, “Is this organic?” If the answer is no, then their produce is thrown back on the table in disgust.  What are these activists doing at the farmers’ markets to begin with?  If they don’t agree with how farmers are growing things, shouldn’t they be growing their own food and leaving them alone?  A’oles can’t do that.  They have to be rude & bully the small farmer to try and convince them to grow things the A’ole way.  That’s some aloha alright!

The Babes Against Biotech and Crop Destruction

Several months ago, the Babes Against Biotech ventured from their concrete farm in Waikiki to wreak some havoc on the Big Island.  They had to spread their aloha there for A’ole Margaret Wille’s Bill 79.  While there, they met up with Roseanne Barr who made some pretty hateful statements about GMO crops.  This was a meme featured on the Babes Against Biotech page after the testimony was given:

Not only did she encourage crop burning but she also spread a lot of vile accusations of GMO poisoning and even had followers promoting more crop burning:

There was even a response by my dad in the Truth about Trade and Technology calling this kind of tactic out.  Pretty disgusting what this A’ole Aloha actress could do about this entire issue.  It is pretty clear what these activist groups want because it’s written all over the place.  There is not hiding what their agenda is, especially on their Twitter feeds:

So when this latest incident of papaya destruction occurred in Puna several days ago, no one can deny that it may have a high likelihood of agroterrorism since that has been the talk all over the social media for the past year.  I’ve seen it all over various A’ole GMO pages.  Some A’oles even have the gall to promote crop destruction on the Star Advertiser Facebook article (note another ignoramus “likes” it too):

So why not ask them to help solve a mystery.  This is what I posted on several A’ole GMO pages:

BABS ecoterrorism

I suspect that most of of the posts were removed from these walls or ignored but I did get a response to it today:

Babs09291

Of course they had to add their A’ole GMO issue with crop contamination and corporate hate and that they actually support an exemption of papayas???  And then to mention a rumor that the papaya farmer did this himself to collect insurance is yet another odd comment.  Funny how they smother the love and no hostility comments too.  That they claim to support farmers is a joke because what else do they demand?  A label that would actually harm the small farmers who use this technology.  I had to respond back to this person with:

babs09292

She then came out with this reply:

Babs09293

It is not surprising at all that they keep recycling the same old anti-corporation hate, Agent Orange, and so on.  I wish these women would research their stuff a bit more because to me, it makes women look bad and not smart.  My reply to her was:

BABS09294

And I, being the science supporter that I am, was compelled to put include some factual information as well.  They of course deleted the chart that shows some of the organic pesticides used and its toxicity to bees.  I reposted it on there as such:

Babs09295

And before you know it, when you hit them with facts that they don’t like, you get a ban.  Here’s their reply to me that got sent to my email:

It is quite funny that they think I am spreading biotech propaganda when the source is clearly not from the biotech industry at all rather from the Xerces Society.  This is a nonprofit dedicated to looking at how to save the pollinators.  Shouldn’t A’oles love that kind of group? I guess not.  It just goes to show that A’oles do not read anything outside of anti-GMO propaganda and when faced with facts, they duck or run!  These honeys show you exactly what they are made of!

The Crop Destruction Continues and the A’oles Come Out!

One would think that if your group was associated with breaking the law and crop destruction, you would hang low for a bit.  But no, not the A’ole GMO folks.  They will come right out and state that they support this.  Of course some of them feel the other way that this is a smear campaign against them which is odd because we’ve seen it all over the place.

Read the Star Advertiser piece on Facebook with the details of the destruction of about 100 papaya trees in Puna.

One person blatantly expresses his support of crop destruction by stating this:

There are some more expressions of hate posted on the same page:

Then on the Civil Beat article on the crop destruction we have commenters spreading false information all over the place.  “Monsanto this and that” only creates more vile misinformed hate towards farmers.  Luckily as of today, all of the comments were removed by her, but her name remains:

It is nice to know that a majority of the commenters on most of the articles did come out against this kind of action.  There is some hope that there may be a glimmer of aloha in the GMO issue.

Just a reminder that when you are against GMOs, you are aligning yourself with these kinds of folks.  The no aloha folks indeed.  No farmer should ever have to worry about this kind of issue and it is not the individual’s right to support this kind of action.  When the tone of the conversations change, that’s when we won’t need this kind of page exposing the no Aloha spirit.

Farmers Speaking Up for Ag Become Targets

Social media gives us lots of opportunities to voice our opinions.  But if you are a farmer who voices your support for biotechnology or agricultural science, you can expect the A’oles to come out roaring.

There’s so many problems with this issue.  I find it rather sad to see that people can stoop down to this level towards our farmers here in Hawaii.  Here are some examples of what activists do to farmer’s on their Yelp pages:

nalo yelp

Here’s yet another post on an article a farmer commented on that two folks decided to openly state their pleasure with.

What kind of environment have we created with these kinds of bills being proposed by our leaders? Where’s the aloha spirit towards differing opinions?  There are none because anyone who speaks up in support of the actual scientific evidence becomes a target.
