Russell Ruderman Sorts GMO Facts from Fiction???

It’s really interesting that Senator Russell Ruderman who has a degree in biology and owns 4 natural food stores on the Big Island is now going to do a column about the facts and fiction of GMOs.  Somehow, an organic shill plans on writing facts about something he has openly criticized?

Of course his post lacks a shred of evidence or citation to back up his claims of facts.  That is something very common on bogus articles, which leads us to the conclusion that he needs to rename his column as “GMO Fictions and Fears.”  Fears are a great way to make a profit in those stores everyday!

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.
