Never Trust the Right to Know Mob

Once again, the Right to Know mob is at again with the fear mongering.  Now they have gotten their kids to be the puppets of these parents with this petition to label GMOs.  Hector Valenzuela is also joining in on this skull and crossbones campaign.

Just read on at some of the comments people left on the petition also.

  • Erika Preuss KAPAA, HI
  • Our young people know what is right, that we have the right to know what is in our food! We have worked for years to convince our youth to eath ‘healthy’ foods – and now that they are finally listening – the message we are sending them by not labeling GMO is a negative one. How can we teach our children to read labels, and know what’s in their food, avoid junk food etc.. and then turn around and tell them they don’t have the right to KNOW what is in their food? My kids tell me that it makes no sense, and I agree! We have a right to know ALL ingredients in our food. If it is unique and different enough to be PATENTED, then it is not a typical normal food. Remember, the biotech industry keeps telling us that GMO’s are the ‘same’ as regular food – while in the same breath they tell us they are different, unique and patented (and they defend those patents by vigorously suing farmers) – So which is it? Either they are not different and normal, or they are unique and different, and PATENTED. The industry cannot have it both ways – and we deserve the RIGHT TO KNOW all of the ingredients, ALL of the ingredients in our food. Especially the patented ones.

  • Dana Keawe PAHOA, HI
  • We have the right to know what is in our food. Please label our food.

  • There are a growing number of consumers who are concerned about GMOs and have consciously boycotted products that are not labeled NON GMO or Organic. This puts every company who use crops that are Genetically Modified at risk of market failure. Everyone is paying the price for a few. Consumers look for product information on the label to make educated choices, especially when choosing food.

    Consumers who have food allergies rely heavily on proper labeling and AVOID products that are not clearly labeled.

    Gluten Free labeling is a recent example of a labeling law that doesn’t go far enough to help consumers, as it only refers to gluten found in wheat, and does not take into consideration gluten from barley, rye, or oats. While users appreciate the label, they often find themselves at risk because the product does in fact contain gluten.

    Clear laws that include EVERY form of GM/GE products should be properly labeled on ALL food, even that which is consumed by animals.

  • larry schneider KILAUEA, HI
  • why do i need to bill to obtain information and/or knowledge? do we live in nazi germany, or mccarthy era USA?

  • Ann Evans MAKAWAO, HI
  • The YOUTH are smart enough to realize their future!

  • Jen Richmond HILO, HI
  • Our keiki are being used as test subjects w/o their (and our) consent. We all have a right to decide what we will eat, and whose products we will buy. We also have the right to VOTE, and I, for one, will exercise that right to elect officials who listen to their constituents, not mega-corporations.

  • I like that the youth of tomorrow are getting informed and taking charge of their health and the environment they will live with and for future generations. GOOD LUCK and may GOD Bless !

 

Note that Larry Schneider also made this same comment too about GE food, with Gary Hooser’s endorsement also.  They openly admit to scaring people!

What’s the biggest joke is that they claim that they want the right to know and that a label from the government is going suddenly make them trust it again.  They never trusted the state or Governor Abercrombie’s efforts to work with the seed companies with the right to know issue, so they went ahead and passed their own faulty laws.  Is a label on GE foods really going to suddenly make these right to knowers trusting of government again?  Yeah right.  It isn’t going to fix anyone.  They should ask their own industry to label food as GMO Free since they trust organic so much more than anyone else.

Inciting the Mob: Let the Fear Mongers Unite!

Bring on the FEAR MONGERING once again!  The seed companies have filed a lawsuit against the county which comes as no surprise.  The health studies and environmental studies found nothing to support their claims so time to spread more and more fear.

Just to start off the day, GMO Free USA posts this meme of a baby with a condition called gastroschisis.  It is nice and scary and attempts to make the uneducated social media follower think that the seed companies have something to do with this.

Of course, few of the A’oles would ever know what the condition is but will automatically correlate biotech with this birth defect.  However, a skeptical reader will attempt to look further than just a picture for their information and find that there is no known causes of this defect .  It is a very rare condition but the meme implies that this is a very common occurrence which the data does not support.

Another scary picture posted of Facebook recently was this condition called polydactly by a well known A’ole radio personality.  She purports to link this to working on the seed farms.

A public post made by an A’ole radio personality

Well, when you look up this condition more, you find that it is genetic and has no link to GMOs.  People have been experiencing this condition long before biotech was even heard of!

Remember that just because your read or saw it on your friend’s Facebook page, it doesn’t make their claims completely true.  The goal of the A’oles is to create fear and doubt to win the masses to created mob rule.  Mob rule based in fear and misinformation has worked well because of politicians afraid of losing their seats in this year’s election!

Bill 2491: The Truth Comes Out

On a freshly posted blog by Civil Beat about the lawsuit filed by the seed companies on Kauai, there is proof that there was no science involved in the whole issue to begin with clearly stated by this activist.

Screenshot 2014-01-11 12.57.24

It’s clear here that the whole issue was based in fear and hearsay.  No evidence presented would ever change these folks’ minds at all.   It really didn’t matter if any attempts were made by the companies to be good neighbors because nothing would ever be good enough except being completely out.  Let’s see what holds up in the court where evidence is key and hearsay is not.

A’ole GMO Walter Ritte is Forgetful

Today there was a hot topic post on Civil Beat by Margaret Wille on her support of Bill 113. All the A’oles on there were commenting away about being poisoned and how everyone who speaks out for ag a paid industry shill and so on.  And of the course the usual anti-GMO stuff from the Babes Against Biotech as well.

Then Dean Gallo of CTAHR posted a comment about biotech:

Screen shot 2013-12-11 at 10.09.31 PM

Then out came the loads of loud criticism from the BABS and Walter Ritte, etc. about CTAHR.  Amazing to think that Ritte appears to blast, or at least not support CTAHR but has no problem with the same college funding his Molokai fishpond restoration project. Screen shot 2013-12-11 at 10.19.03 PM Didn’t they do a good thing Mr. Ritte?  Along with all the work done with the EPA that by the way all of your A’oles are critical of and distrust.  Someone seems to be forgetting about how they were helped along the way by the very people they criticize.

Angela Flynn Wants Real Death Threats Posted

Every once in a while, an A’ole will find this page and post a nice aloha-filled comment.  Thank goodness it is moderated so they can’t go doing the typical A’ole activity of spamming up comments with Natural News, Collective Evolution, Sustainable Pulse, Dr. Mercola, Green Med Info, Institute for Responsible Technology, and all those other crackpot sites.  Well, this comment from Angel Flynn was found on the Hooser and Bynum posts:

angela flynn

Apparently she didn’t quite read through the post thoroughly enough to note that there was a link in it that references actual death threats.  Since you want some real death threats against people Angela, please go through your GMO Free groups and show us one.  Other than that, we will side with the Kauai County Police department’s reports that were announced on their social media site and others.  You can find links here, here, and here,

If you can’t find it, here it is.

Helen Lovell Says Biotech Farmers Have No Aloha

Just when you thought things would quiet down a bit here in Hawaii, it never fails that the no aloha folks are bursting at the seams to spew their comments again.  Meet Helen Lovell, who apparently is a nurse:

Screen shot 2013-11-12 at 3.36.47 PM

She believes that papaya farmers deserve no aloha for using biotech to grow their crops. But how exactly does one grow “nasty garbage?”

Screen shot 2013-11-12 at 3.39.24 PM

She apparently thinks that there is no aloha when people speak up against these activists, and that anyone who does is a troublemaker.  Of course, they only want their voices heard and not anyone else’s.

Screen shot 2013-11-12 at 3.39.40 PM

You also know that Vandana Shiva has recently been to the islands when they borrow her terminology of “raping the land.”

Screen shot 2013-11-12 at 3.39.54 PM

Then she goes on to say that threats made against the Mayor were made by my little corn friend, Frank n Foode…(seriously?).  I can’t quite figure out why I would need to threaten the Mayor but she has something in her mind that there is a reason for it.  They still can’t figure out that they themselves are looking bad because of the nature of their commentaries.

Screen shot 2013-11-12 at 3.40.07 PM

Last but not least, Helen has to throw in an insult.  No surprise at all for that is the Kauai A’ole way.

Screen shot 2013-11-12 at 3.40.35 PM

As much as these folks love to talk about them being pono and having lots of aloha, it is clear that they have no clue about it already.  Same goes for their leader, Gary Hooser and his antics.  Monkey see, monkey do.

The Representatives of the GMO Free Club of Kauai

Funny how the news stories explicitly stated that the threats to the mayor were not representative of the anti-GMO movement.  Then another supporter said that they are 0.01% of the activists and that there is no engaging with these folks.  Really Aria Juliet? Interesting because you’ll find all of these people in the GMO Free Kauai group.

Aria

These misguided people seem the be the very ones that Hooser and Bynum are associating with.  The writing is on the wall.  Do you actually think that the public is oblivious to this?

When you put it all together, you get a better view of what the whole picture looks like…

Here’s Christi Demuth’s twitter feed on what she thinks.  She’s a well know A’ole to everyone from Kevin Folta to Karl Haro-Von Mogel:
