Hooser and Bynum’s Land of No Aloha Activists!
From Hawaii Farmer’s Daughter
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, 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 is a flaws in the bill that would cause much more 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 another winning comment collection on the Hawaii News Now post about the veto by Kristin Steinkamp and Bigkine.
Here’s another winning comment by Mahea N Umi.
And another one from Stephanie Bogan downplaying the threats of course under it being freedom of speech.
Then there is Rey Kamakani and his lovely quote to the mayor too.
And let’s not forget some new comments about GMO that came out right after the veto also on the Hawaii GMO Justice Coalition page too.
Here’s a very nice person named Donna French who has 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 also.
Then there is the GMO reaper on Kauai too.
And yet another one from Kurtis Kunesh.
We can’t forget the very person who insisted on passing this law and not even considering existing statutes to begin with that would jeopardize it. Didn’t he and the other County Council members take an oath of office same like 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. Can we say keeping people in the dark, just like the Babes Against Biotech and Hawaii GMO Justice Coalition.
His son is no different either unfortunately in that they didn’t even bother to read the attorney general’s opinion on the law either 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 and these folks are now ticked off and they don’t care how they express it either. It’s no wonder that they are acting the way they are.
Many activists feel that it is their “right” to act the way they want because they are unhappy. Do they have the evidence and data to support what they are saying? No, never, and all what is left is hateful comments like these. This is 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 on this blog. It is hopeful, but not likely at this point.
