Russell Ruderman: Right to Know Who You Are

Before you start to read this post, please read the following definition of slander:

As you research more on the leaders of the A’ole GMO movement, you start to find a lot of discrepancies in what they say and do.  It’s all documented front and center on the internet and somehow changes in emails.  Note this email from Russell Ruderman on his credentials of his degree:

Okay, if he has his genetics degree, when exactly did he get it? What does the research on him say:

He got his degree nearly 40 years ago!  The technology now and then is so advanced and I can’t imagine that he has kept up with it.  He’s been running his Islands Naturals Deli and Market for several decades already.  Is pumping up your science credentials going to affect my opinion of you?  Why didn’t he just say that he has a BS in Biology to begin with in his email instead of being coy about it?

And about that Right to Know campaign bit…

Andrea Brower: The Public has a Right to Know Who You Are

Maybe it is just a A’ole GMO thing but changing up words to fit your argument is a common thing with what they say and do.  They speak about malama the aina, keiki, and kupuna but then turn around and tell someone who speaks out for biotechnology to drink poison.  Gary Hooser constantly was stating that it was 18 tons of pesticides on their stoppoisoningparadise.org site and they all repeated it over and over.  All the meanwhile they conveniently forget to mention the actual amount of active ingredient weight was little over 9.89 tons that is used by 4 companies on 5,600 acres.  Just the numbers make it sound scary enough but when you really put it into perspective it is really the weight of about 5 average sized cars.  That’s the real amount of active ingredients being used by the seed companies on Kauai, not what Hooser and others state.  Repetition of these “facts” by these folks start getting them all chanting the mantras of 18 tons, RUPs, but conveniently forget that 49% of RUPs are used by the county itself and another 38% by exterminator companies.

Back several months ago, Andrea Brower started writing editorials for the Star Advertiser focusing on the right to know issue.  She has been a long time activist apparently also.  Here’s how she listed her credentials on a July 17, 2013 column.

Andrea’s Star Advertiser Island Voices Column that ran on July 17, 2013.

Based on what she say above you get an idea that studying what she’s talking about.  Good, that give her more relevancy about the issue for her cause.  She also states that she born and raised and educated on Kauai.  Wait, but it says that she has a Master of Science from the University of Sussex.  Is that on Kauai? Also in the column, the reader gets the impression she’s on the island to “demand for self-determination.”  Okay, got it.

Fast Forward 3 months later…

Starting in October, her opinions start coming up on the social media on the Huffington Post .  She repeats the same thing about 18 tons and does the same thing that Gary Hooser does, conveniently omitting the real numbers for the sake of fear mongering.  When you start looking at her credentials on the HuffPo, it is completely different!

Andrea Brower’s profile from her Huffington Post Blog site.

This starts to bring up some interesting questions.  How does one go from a PhD in politics and economics of food and agriculture to now a PhD in sociology and that she’s no longer in Kauai as it mentions how she is formerly from Hawaii in a 3 month period?  If you look up the  sociology department at the University of Auckland, you can even see the curriculum and what other PhD students are studying and her name is not listed.  Who are we really hearing from?

**Someone shared with us even more info about her academic background today also.  From the Auckland Academia website she lists her info here also, which apparently is more in line with the HuffPo one.   Note what she lists as her areas of focus which are completely different from what she listed on the Star Advertiser one.  Which one is the truth?**

Well, Andrea and her associates are always accusing the seed industry being liars, corrupt, and dishonest which is why they deserve a right to know.  For that matter, they accuse anyone who speaks out against them as such.  Well, shouldn’t the public have a right to know who you really are Andrea Brower?

The Whole World is Watching Ground Zero

stickfingerchick

Yes, the whole world is watching Kauai and their A’ole GMO mob members.  It is ground zero for classiness apparently.  Give a nice wave to others while your kids run around you and see you do it.

Mahalo Kauai County Council for supporting these folks and what they do to farmers!

The Norwegian Aloha of Helen Lovell

So the anti-GMO bill 2491 veto was overridden today and it is no surprise that those same A’oles are at it again and can’t control their mouths or their behavior.  It is amazing that there are adults out there like Helen Lovell who complain about no aloha and then publicly post this kind of stuff all over the social media.  What she hasn’t yet realized is that this is just day one and it’s not even enacted yet.  Thank goodness she didn’t tell anyone to drink poison or threaten crop destruction.

She’s a great example of the respect and aloha of the dialogue here in Hawaii.  Something that our Congressional Representative Tulsi Gabbard really should see and understand who she is supporting.  I had to send it to her on her Facebook page which she unblocked me from because I publicly called her out on it.

I’ve been called a shill, a troll, and given a nickname, Tokyo Rose, but never loser and cockroach before.  This does indeed illustrate a new higher level of aloha in the A’ole GMO Club of Kauai!

Put Up a Pro GMO Page & They Will Come!

If you ever are curious about who is an A’ole and the level of their intelligence, just set up a pro GMO page on Facebook.  If an A’ole ever gets a hold of it, you’ll get a flood of comments that are either mean or nasty or so ignorant that it’s amazing they don’t even realize how uninformed they are.  That is the A’ole way of doing things in Hawaii.

Here’s quite a few examples found on the GogoGMO page.  (Note: All comments are publicly available.)

Here’s Jessica Mitchell, who is notorious for her “Go back to Japan” comment to Senator Nishihara that will live in infamy:

Then there is Frank Garcia and his lovely tirade.

Then there is Taylor Kaneaiakala and his perfect example of aloha.

Next there is Eric Kent Hagy and his take on biotech as well as his evidence, Genetic Roulette.

You know how you learn as a kid that if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.  Well, Keliihananui Crabbe has apparently forgotten to bite one’s tongue.

You Wrote It, We Post It. Don’t Like It, Don’t Post It! Get it?

This was received yesterday from an A’ole GMO commenter, Samuel Shaw.  Remember that these commentaries were posted by your fellow A’oles all over the social media.  Those same folks who made these statements are the ones demanding laws to be made.  The A’oles just despise this page! But you A’oles provided the material for it!  It was created by your own nasty social media posts!  People have been capturing and broadcasting your statements all over the place in order to back up our claim that there is no aloha from the activists.  And it’s not about dividing the community, it’s about exposing the very comments that ARE dividing the community.  Let the Mayor work with the state and federal government to deal with the issue as he should uphold the laws that he took an oath of office for.  Just because there are no arrests doesn’t make it right to even make such threats to begin with.  That is his job to follow through on his oath, not throw it aside like Hooser and Bynum are doing.

If you don’t like reading what you see here, stop posting that kind of stuff to begin with.  Should anyone really be listening to activists who do this?  If you don’t like what you’re reading on here, then stop being the source of it.

Samuel Shaw did want me to also post this.  So much aloha that they can’t figure out what it really is anymore.  Personal attacks against people are all they can resort to and organizations that allow this kind of stuff to happen are also kind of sad.  Rudeness and disrespect rule here in Hawaii and if you speak up against it or even expose it, you get attacked for doing so.  Let’s not forget that this guy was giving discounts for tattoos to people who showed that they signed the petition against Chuck.  What does that say?

Get it? Likely not.  Please go up and read the title again, that may help.  Be accountable for what you say, no matter where you are.

Christi A’ole GMO aka Kauai A’ole GMO

It’s no secret who is responsible for this collection of tweets received today:

Christi might have changed her Twitter handle but it’s not hard to not know who she is and what she has to say.  Can’t forget this comment of hers:

demuth 4-2

Just another GMO Free club member showing us what she thinks is aloha towards farmers or anyone who speaks up for biotech.  Gary Hooser, what do you have to say about your lovely followers?
