Hooser and Bynum’s Land of No Aloha Activists!

So it has been big news that the anti-GMO Bill 2491 was vetoed by Mayor Carvalho just a few days ago.  Did you ever think that it would be peaceful, calm, and quiet?

Meet the activists of Kauai and see how they treat their leaders.

It is not a surprise that the same activists who disrespect farmers, graffiti roadways, threaten to destroy crops and equipment, and put nasty commentaries all over the social media have shown their true colors once again for all to see.  They can’t see that there are flaws in the bill that would cause significant headaches for the county to deal with based on existing statutes already in place.  One of them being the Hawaii Right to Farm Act.

Just read the commentary coming out from the Babes Against Biotech leader, Nomi Carmona.

Then go to her Babes Against Biotech page and you’ll find many more lovely comments about the Mayor’s decision to veto the flawed law.

Let’s call the Mayor lovely names by James Kealii Kam.

Then another one from Michael Huskey criticizing the Mayor.

Then there is Jason Kalani who promotes the use of violence and threats to get their way.

Don’t forget what Ricky Murray has to say about the Mayor.

Here’s more lovingly written comments on the Hawaii News Now post about the veto by Kristin Steinkamp and Bigkine.

Here’s another winning comment by Mahea N Umi, of course not backed up by evidence, just heresy:

And another one from Stephanie Bogan, of course downplaying the threatening language being used as acceptable due to laws for freedom of speech:

Then there is Rey Kamakani and his lovely quote to the mayor:

And let’s also not forget some new comments about GMO that came out right after the veto on the Hawaii GMO Justice Coalition page.

Here’s a very nice person named Donna French who has a clear message to send to biotech supporters:

Then there is another person named Patric Coan who has a lot to say about his plans for biotech crops:

Then there is also the GMO reaper on Kauai:

And yet another one from Kurtis Kunesh.

We can’t forget that the very person who insisted on passing this law (his initials are G.H.) did not even consider preexisting statutes that would jeopardize it.  Didn’t he and the other County Council members take an oath of office, same as Mayor Carvalho?

“I solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully support the Constitution and laws of the United States of America, the Constitution and laws of the State of Hawaii and the Charter and laws of the County of Kauai, and conscientiously and impartially discharge my duties as ________ of the County of Kauai.”

He continues to refuse to acknowledge that this hate is being spewed by the very activists he supports.  Its like it doesn’t exist in his eyes.  He just continually incites the A’oles with the same information not even bothering to actually state the facts to them about the existing statutes and legal issues.  Could this be a way of keeping people in the dark, just like the tactics of Babes Against Biotech and Hawaii GMO Justice Coalition?

garyhooser

His son unfortunately is no different in that he didn’t even bother to read the attorney general’s opinion on the law or even consider the fact that it was flawed to begin with.  Which politician is adhering to their oath of office to uphold the laws of the state, federal, and county?  It’s the mayor.  But these folks are now ticked off and don’t care how they express it.

mbdhooser

Many activists feel that it is their “right” to act the way they want because they are unhappy. But do they indeed have the evidence and data to support what they are saying?  No, never, and all that is evident are hateful comments like these, with no basis in truth or fact.  These are indeed the faces of the anti-GMO movement here in Kauai but many news articles state otherwise that they do not represent the movement.  Are you kidding?

Look in the mirror and see if you’d like others to remember you that way, captured on the social media forever.  Is there room for yelling, threats of riots and violence in law making? Of course, I’d probably get a comment here saying once again that there is no aloha on my point of view.  Really?  Everything is justified and it doesn’t matter how its done?  Remember, that if you are posting threats, say rotten stuff, calling that there is no aloha, stop posting and doing stuff that is reflective of that.  Then there would be nothing to write about on this blog.  It is hopeful, but not likely at this point.

The Hawaii GMO Justice Coalition is an interesting Facebook page full of A’ole GMO websites, scare mongering memes, Evict Monsanto stuff, and posts from some very lovely people indeed.  They also are quite conflicted as to whether they want a full ban on GMOs or just labeling.  Same goes for most of these groups with schizophrenic tendencies.  This page also uses its cover to post some very nice comments to farmers.

Here are a few gems from this group:

HJGMO2A

hatelinda

Some commenters even get concerned about what some of their other fellow A’oles post…

HJGMO6

Their is also a noticeable pattern of posting nasty hateful comments that by design are meant to get their supporters worked up and also in the mode of communicating not only hateful messages, but outright condoning of vandalism and violence.

It is amazing how pages like this have such vile, hateful commentary and then always end it with truth, love, peace, and unity!  Along with poison?!

This group is also against Kamehameha Schools and their leases to Monsanto.  Their message is always Evict Monsanto and they even have shirts and caps that advertise their message.  Does this mean that they are anti-Hawaiian?  Do they not want Hawaiians to benefit from the lease land revenue?  We presume so as they are hell bent on getting after Kamehameha Schools.  Maybe a name change is due for this group…  The A’ole Kamehameha Schools Justice Coalition.  That’s the A’ole way for sure!

The Babes Against Biotech Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard

When you think of a congresswoman, wouldn’t you think of someone who is well educated, level headed, and can think on her own two feet about the issues?  Well, I used to think that of these elected officials, but my mind has changed.  I’ve come to realize that some of our congress people are only willing to listen the loudest of the bunch and probably are part of the activist groups that continue to spread A’ole Aloha in Hawaii to further divide communities.

How we know that Ms. Gabbard is part of the Honeys as I call them is based on things I have seen her posting on their Facebook page back several months ago.  She clearly wears Monsanto glasses like so many others that have the same infliction.

BAB Gabbard link

She has also aligned with other A’ole GMO pro label congress people and continues to spread the word about this perceived evil of Monsanto.  Forget the fact that Monsanto is not the only biotech company that sells seeds.

Babgabbard monsantoprot

You know that she is against technology when she responds to the Babes Against Biotech’s post accusing Truth About Trade and Technology of propaganda.

Gabbard and babs

Not only does she continually harp on Monsanto in the social media but she even sends out emails professing her intentions against the popular target of the A’ole GMO club:

monsanto gabbard

Why is she so hell bent on bashing Monsanto and so anti-technology?  You know the term follow the money, well let’s see…

Note that Down to Earth and Noni Connection are on the top of the contributors list and are tied to the organic industry.  She and her father also started a non-profit, Healthy Hawaii Coalition where they also push for their environmentally friendly messages and go organic campaign.  Note that this campaign was even funded by taxpayer dollars at $25K without any bidding.  Taxpayer’s dollars are being used for A’ole GMO activism!

Being concerned about the many farmer constituents in her district, I decided to go on the social media and voice my opinion of her stance and actions as well as call her out for only taking one side on the issue.  The farmers and ranchers that use biotechnology in their work need to be heard.

gabbard invite to farm

I indeed emailed her and her team nearly 3 months ago with not a single response back.  So we can guess that she is not supporting all farmers, including those who use bio-technology, which is sad.  She acknowledged that she went to the A’ole GMO Seed Exchange and to ONE Maui farm, but that was it.  She is also sponsoring a label for GMO foods but neither acknowledges a request for education along with it.  The lack of a response and her correspondence with farmers and her alliances with activists only tell us one thing.  This is the kind of leader she is:

Screen shot 2013-09-18 at 11.13.39 PM

She is yet another opportunistic politician guilty of not researching her evidence and continually creating divisiveness and a lack of aloha in our communities.  I would be way more impressed if she took just a few minutes to listen to the farmers but unfortunately she values the voices of these people instead:

(Notice how this video wants a ban on GMOs yet later these same people will state that they want a label.  Just like Tulsi wanting a label, but more likely disguised as a ban.)

(Note how Tulsi’s friends protest fields being poison and wear masks.  If it is so poisonous, why are you wearing tank tops and shorts?)

Amazing the alliances Congresswoman Gabbard has made!

The Legend of the A’ole GMO

Many years ago, a very special group of people became the chosen ones, or so they were told.  They were sought out to protect mother nature and save the earth.  They did so by watching many a movie on the internet and were told to spread the word across the world and beyond.  They willingly did so without question…

Not only were they chosen to watch movies, but they were shown the truth about these evils surrounding us through many scary pictures and memes plastered all over the social media!

The flood of these pictures and the stories they told made people afraid for their lives for they really believed they were in danger of being poisoned by evil.  They became angry.  Some even started saying things like this…

Some A’oles became keenly knowledgeable from reading something on the internet and started to boast their expertise too…

However, some A’oles became really upset and used social media to express it (note there are too many to post!)…

Some got so angered that they even said this…

The scientists tried to come to educate these people and reassure them they were not in danger, but they would not listen and instead responded  with:

But these A’oles claiming the Right to Know already knew what they wanted, so they formed a special bond.  That common bond of love, peace, hate, and poison and got together to do this…

Seeing that there was an opportunity, some people decided to take action to help these angry and scared people.  Capitalizing on all of this bonding based on fear resulted in:

Not only did these very clever marketers see $$, but leaders also saw opportunities in this whole affair…
