BY Richard Klemm– Physical intimidation and psychological terrorism are the everyday tools radical activists employ to trample the free speech of others, such as experienced by Agricultural Day representatives Dean Okimoto and Shin Ho on March 28 at the legislature by anti-GMO activists.
It’s important to know who are these activists behind this war against democracy and biotech.
First among them are unethical organic marketers, locally and nationally, who have been disparaging conventional farm products for decades and, now biotech products.
Why? Because purveyors of organic foods have nothing unique to offer their customers except higher prices and slightly elevated risks of biological contamination.
Right behind them are anti-humanist groups, both local and national, who have found terrorizing the public with outrageous claims and distortions of the truth can be quite profitable.
For some of these activist groups it’s not so much the biotech food products, it’s the corporations they hate. And they hate us human beings as a scourge of the earth.
Should the activists win, millions more people will die prematurely and the earth will suffer mightily.
