Andy Parx Proud of His Associations

Andy Parx who blogged about an email he came upon, thinks he hit the goldmine that there’s a collusion among folks.  Yes, you are right Andy, people are starting to stand together against the A’oles.  Let’s take a look at the names he’s listed that he’s so proud about:

Chris Manfredi, Jason Moniz, Lorie Farrell, Janet Ashman, Brian Miyamoto, Alex Franco, Chris English, Alan Takemoto, Laurie Ho, Eric Tanouye, Eric Weinert, Ross Sibucao and Michael Madamba

If you look at that list, they are all folks who have had long time association with agriculture and most are even farmers and ranchers.  Logic tells you that if you’re way of living is being attacked by someone, you are going to get together to speak up.  Duh, Andy!

Well, let’s take a closer look at Andy’s associations and what they have said about farmers on the social media.

The amount of ill will and hate is not surprising in a population that has been bombarded by political opportunists in our state.  The amazing thing about Andy is that he actually recognizes this issue.

Can Andy stand proud of his associations?

Don’t Post that A’ole GMO: How to Save Face

The internet is full of sites that will help to confirm your own biases many times and trying to figure out what is vetted and what isn’t is really tricky for the majority of folks.  That is regardless of anyone’s educational level, especially when it comes down agricultural and food issues.

If you are ever commenting on an article on FB or other social media sites, there are a few cardinal sins of posting links as your evidence.

Cardinal sin number 1: Monsanto

If you ever mention the name in any of your postings, you have automatically shown that you have not done your due diligence in research.  You have completely shown where your state of mind is at and this would be a good time to see why.  (Be sure to read the links below the posts in RationalWiki and Wikipedia as they are the sources of the statement.)  Post anything and put that name there and you have disqualified any and most of your arguments.  Someone will be shaking their head reading your comment.

Cardinal sin number 2: Bad links as your evidence

If you don’t want to be mocked, avoid the following sites:

The Organic Consumers’ Association

Natural News

Sustainable Pulse

Green Med Info

The Union of Concerned Scientists

Dr. Mercola 

Institute for Responsible Technology

Center for Food Safety

GM Watch

If you ever try to use these links as your reasons against GMOs, you will be not take seriously.  In fact, that person reading your comments with these links will actually start to get snarky with you for doing so because these are not legitimate sites with actual links to the studies that they use as evidence.  If you ever find something on these sites, type in their name and follow it with “debunk” and you will find a completely different side of information.  These sites are known offenders of half okole information where they take only part of the actual study and publish what they want for it and never providing the source.  That’s the cardinal sin of the A’oles on the social media when it comes down to a debate with a pro-GMO person.

Cardinal Sin number 3: Movies

Another sin of the A’ole GMO club is using movies as your proof of dangers.  There are two movies that they love to use as proof which is far from the truth.  Don’t want to be mocked?  Here’s a helpful list to go by:

Seeds of Death

Genetic Roulette

OMG GMO

Movies are never substitutes for real evidence.  If you just watch any of these movies and feel scared, then it has done its job to work on your emotions.  That’s the motive of a movie is to get you to feel something and in this case, fear it.  So many have been left scared after watching this because majority of the general public have no clue as to what basic genetics really is and these movies prey on that unknown.  The more you know (not conspiracies) the less fearful you can be.

Cardinal Sin number 4: Facebook Memes

Screen shot 2013-06-29 at 6.02.02 PM

Meme from GMO Inside regarding the debunked Seralini study.

If you get tidbits of “facts” from a meme and repost what it says, prepare to be barraged by criticism.  These nice graphics and short statements provide no data or sources of where they are getting their statement from.  Anyone with a bit of photoshopping experience can get a stock photo and put some words on it and voila, you got something to spread around to supposedly educate.  These will leave you stuck when you are asked for evidence because you won’t know how to get that evidence.  Pictures may tell a thousand words but they can’t give you your evidence.  Avoid the memes as your sources of information at all costs.  Someone will be pounding their head reading your statements.

The Worse Cardinal Sin of All: Babes Against Biotech & Hawaii GMO Justice Coalition

If you got your information from these folks, that says it all already.  You’re done and there’s no hope for you if you are following them.  And if you can’t figure out why this is a sin, go back up to the top and start reading what was posted earlier.

“We Love Science!”

It’s interesting how there is a sudden movement by the A’oles to claim that they are scientists and profess out loud their unknown BSc degrees on television.  I used to think that A’oles were anti-science but the reality is that they have little to no science and no knowledge of researching what they read and watch.  A healthy dose of skepticism would be good but they have a hard time knowing how to be skeptical and lean more towards conspiracy, which is much more seductive.  Yes, they can sure Google for “researching” but can’t go beyond that.  They have been fear mongered beyond belief that they have gone from being in a fearful state to one of being angry and irrational.  It is pretty obvious what state of minds these folks are at when commentaries like this one popping up on the social media.

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.

The Babes Against Biotech Honeys

babescientist

First of all, we’d like to present a definition of “babe” and “scientist.”  We can’t understand why anyone would trust a babe for their knowledge about GMOs in the first place but that’s another post.

These newly formed environmental activists are some of the most A’ole aloha folks on our islands now.  Their page shows links to Natural News, Collective Evolution, Raw for Beauty, Mercola, and so on.  This is typical for anti-GMO activists as sources for their information, negative scare propaganda which has zero evidence and half truths galore.

They will warn members of “propaganda” sites too!  (We can’t understand how an organization that supports trade and technology is propaganda but that is another story.)  And I am sad to report, that our congress person, Tulsi Gabbard, is also a BAB supporter.

Gabbard and babsgabbardcourageous

What is disturbing about these honeys is that they have resorted to attacking farmers and anyone who supports biotech.  Just this past legislative session they had a screaming match against farmer and Farm Bureau President Dean Okimoto, during the Ag Day at the Legislature, when the activist’s claims were faltering against another farmer who has no business whatsoever to farming or growing GMO’s, after Dean stepped in to defend her.  Let’s not forget that one of them left nasty phone messages to legislator Clarence Nishihara to “go back to Japan.”  They “support” agriculture in Hawaii by passing out their propaganda at farmer’s markets, which were actually started up by Mr. Okimoto, the same farmer they screamed at.

babs farmers

They then had to defend themselves after those incidents which had led to a news article coming out exposing these behaviors.

bab threat

Here’s what you get if you fail to meet their demands:

nishihara target

There’s plenty more legislators’ photos as well as photos of lobbyists which they use to direct their followers to as bullying targets.  They have also posted many public figures’ personal information and addresses online.  Hmm…  Target practice possibly for some of their deranged followers?

If the tables turn on them however, and they are chided the same way they do to their targets, these babes will cry foul.  Just recently a parody page came up called the Boobs Against Biology on Facebook.

Within a few days, of it being up, of course the A’oles managed to shut it down for several hours.  It wasn’t completely taken down, just temporarily.  Go check it out and see the comments for a good laugh.

Sometimes they get their club members so riled up that they will cuss some of the leaders out.  That’s when these honeys have to remind them of what it means to have aloha.

scoldingbabs

They fear poison,  but the promote brain poison on their page for sure.  They even use Roseanne Barr as a meme to to promote crop destruction:

babs crop destruction

And these honey’s can’t get over the fact that someone young and pretty could EVER support biotechnology and posted this on their page!  Doesn’t this remind you of high school when girls were jealous of each other and picked on the one who stood out?!  Note that these honeys also can’t spell.  What’s agriscience?

STbully

Best of all, they still continue to collect threats from their fan club:

bullets and babs

This is A’ole GMO means A’ole Aloha at its best.  We can’t make this stuff up, they did it themselves.  It’s no joke, seriously, people really think like this.  Do you see anything wrong with this picture? We hope so, if not, you must be part of the honeys.

***Comments are moderated here.  If you are trying to make an apology about what you have done, it doesn’t come out sounding very sincere when you continually blame the other party for the incident and refuse to acknowledge your part played in instigating it.  That is not sincere.  Nor is it sincere to say that the other side is guilty of crossing the line and not having aloha.  Remember, these comments came from you folks and show us quite clearly where there is NO aloha. ***
