Marlee Asks, How Do I Combat Pro-GMO Propaganda?

by SGT, SGT Report:

I received this email today from an informed young lady named Marlee who wants to know how she can combat the corporate propaganda about how GMO foods are awesome, because evidently many of her friends are under-informed and gullible. Here’s what she wrote:

I’m a frequent listener, and just wondering if you could shed some light on this video. I have a lot of friends who aren’t exactly informed on much of anything, only what they see on Facebook, shared by other idiots. This video is great for spreading the info that the war on GMOs is misinformed but I was hoping you could help me out in disproving a lot of the claims this video makes. Just for the sake of conversations with my ignorant friends. Some people need the awakening and aren’t getting it because of videos like this, but I am not confident enough to be able to argue the points made in it, just looking for a little help in that. Thanks for all you do, I’m new to the community and so far only listen on youtube, but I’m slowly moving to your other platforms as well.

Thank you.

Marlee attached the video below, which at the 3:07 mark makes this claim: “Eating GMO plants is no more risky than eating their non-GMO equivalent.” Watch the propaganda fro yourself, if you can “stomach” it.

Are GMOs Good or Bad? Genetic Engineering & Our Food

And here’s my response to Marlee:

Hi Marlee, this is a VERY important topic. The following is my (informed) opinion:

Monsanto is one of the most evil corporations in the world.

They want to “OWN” as much of the world’s food supply as they can.

In layman’s terms, Monsanto scientists insert the ROUND UP poison (Glyphosate) into the genes of the “corn” or “soybeans”, etc. so that the plant is then “round up resistant” when farmers spray the crops. Here’s a more scientific explanation of the Franken-science:

According to Hearst-owned Popular Science:

“Trait insertion” Now that you’ve got your genes, the next step is inserting them into the plants. There are a couple ways to do this, including using “gene guns” that literally shoot pieces of DNA. A .22-caliber charge fires a metal particle coated with DNA into plant tissue. Monsanto no longer uses the technique, but it’s still widely used among other biotech companies.

Because the plant’s genes have been altered, Monsanto is then allowed to PATENT the new plant which they then claim to “OWN”. Farmers that decided to sign the contract with Monsanto to grow those Monsanto seeds then must RE-buy the seeds from Monsanto each and every season – along with the Round Up with which to spray their fields.

Again, from Popular Science:

The company produces the herbicide Roundup, and also seeds whose genes have been engineered to survive Roundup’s active plant-killing ingredient. Now the vast majority of this country’s soybeans, corn, sugar beets and canola possess those engineered genes.

SO… we the people are then ingesting the corn that has been sprayed with Round Up and ingesting corn that also has the poison in the genes of the plant.

Read this article and consider this: Why is RUSSIA making the move away from GMOs?

http://www.naturalnews.com/051242_GM_crops_Russia_non-GMO.html

If you Google the dangers of GMO’s and Round Up Ready corn you will likely find many anti-Mike Adams (Natural News) articles. Mike is one of the leading voices educating people about the dangers of GMOs and now the corporate powers that be (Google) are doing everything they can to bury TRUTH articles, so that the top news returns on the subject are character assassination hit pieces on truth tellers.

Have you head about “Agent Orange” which was used in the Vietnam war to kill enemy troops? That was a Monsanto product.

Spend some time on You Tube searching for GMO dangers.  You may want to begin by watching the excellent documentary “The World According to Monsanto”

God Bless Marlee.

And friends, here’s a recap of the big picture from You Tube’s Dismantle the Matrix:

There’s nothing they are leaving untouched: the mustard, the okra, the bringe oil, the rice, the cauliflower. Once they have established the norm: that seed can be owned as their property, royalties can be collected. We will depend on them for every seed we grow of every crop we grow. If they control seed, they control food, they know it — it’s strategic. It’s more powerful than bombs. It’s more powerful than guns.

This is the best way to control the populations of the world. The story starts in the White House, where Monsanto often got its way by exerting disproportionate influence over policymakers via the “revolving door”. One example is Michael Taylor, who worked for Monsanto as an attorney before being appointed as deputy commissioner of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1991. While at the FDA, the authority that deals with all US food approvals, Taylor made crucial decisions that led to the approval of GE foods and crops. Then he returned to Monsanto, becoming the company’s vice president for public policy.

Thanks to these intimate links between Monsanto and government agencies, the US adopted GE foods and crops without proper testing, without consumer labeling and in spite of serious questions hanging over their safety. Not coincidentally, Monsanto supplies 90 percent of the GE seeds used by the US market.

Monsanto’s long arm stretched so far that, in the early nineties, the US Food and Drugs Agency even ignored warnings of their own scientists, who were cautioning that GE crops could cause negative health effects. Other tactics the company uses to stifle concerns about their products include misleading advertising, bribery and concealing scientific evidence.

    That’s easy… you go to pro-GMO sites and spam teh f*ck out of them.

  • Bob

    Well, one of the first things you can do, Marlee, is ignore people who know absolutely nothing about GMOs, like Sean, and pay attention to scientists who have proven beyond a doubt that GMOs have proven perfectly safe to humans and are generally better for the environment than non-GMO crops.

    Can’t wait to see the comments on this from empty-headed hotheads who think they know what they’re talking about.

    • Rdawg

      Would these be the same scientists that told us for decades that we should be eating grain, sugar is completely safe, and butter will “clog your arteries” and kill you? All the while, we as a nation have piled on the pounds and suffered the consequences of the recommended diet, such as Type 2 diabetes?

      Those scientists?

      Here’s an empty-headed, hothead question for ya, Bob: who paid for the studies that the scientists conducted, hmmm?

    • SGT

      Bob, you are blinded by your own hubris. it’s not the first time we’ve seen it here from you either, it’s an ongoing theme in your life, sadly. I love you in Christ, but seriously you are on the wrong side of many battles. And it’s clear that you have never watched ‘The World According to Monsanto’. What a shame.

      • This is a chief issue I have with the ethics of Christianity. Bob is complicit in murder and a sack of human filth, should rightly burn in the mythical fires of Hell, but should he repent and get splashed with some water, will be “saved.”

        More likely is that Bob is forced to drink a quart of glyphosate every day for a thousand years in the afterlife, only to come back as a piss-poor Indian dirt farmer whose parents killed themselves over indebtedness to Monsanto.

        That’s a religion I could get behind.

      • Bob

        I’m not surprised to read your amateur psychoanalysis of my life; you’re one of the net’s biggest experts on everything. Now we can add psychology to your impressive list.

        I don’t base my positions on documentaries. You believe in global warming because of Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth?” I take the time to read widely, and I’ve learned that:

        The National Academies of Science, widely considered to be the leading scientific body in the United States, have again and again found genetically-modified food safe, with no adverse health effects in humans and few negative environmental effects. Here’s a link to their most recent study.
        https://sciencebasedmedicine.org/national-academy-of-sciences-report-on-gmos/

        And if you don’t trust the National Academies of Science (which wouldn’t surprise me), the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Medical Association, and England’s Royal Society of Medicine have all found GM foods safe. In 2013, Italian scientists did a massive survey of 1,783 published research reports on GMOs and found no evidence of harm. Even the European Commission, which hates GMOs, had to admit GM foods are safe.

        Take a few minutes to inform yourself instead of lashing out with your insufferable arrogance and condescension. You do a disservice to all your readers when your faux expertise misinforms them.

      “…pay attention to scientists who have proven beyond a doubt that GMOs have proven perfectly safe to humans and are generally better for the environment than non-GMO crops.

      Can’t wait to see the comments on this from empty-headed hotheads who think they know what they’re talking about”.

      The only thing proven “…proven without a doubt” is that GMO crops should be banned everywhere, permanently; “Bob” is a troll on the same dole as his so-called “scientists”.

      GMOs are revealing themselves as one on the worst ideas to monopolize food supply by Satanic psychopaths.

      So, Bob…do you know how safe carcinogenic “glyphosate” is—yeah, that evil anti-life brew GMOs are bathed in.

      And…how would you define, “scientist”? Rather a WalMart braindeath term slung around nowadays by drones that know nothing about SCIENCE. NATURE IS SCIENCE WITHOUT STOCKHOLDERS. NATURE will still be here after GMOs do their evil end game.

      @Bob

      Not being a “hothead” or “empty headed”, allow me to comment on your reverse name calling comment. Also, unlike you, Bob, I am a scientist.

      As to GMOs, there are no studies whatever that “prove” that GMOs do not cause generational harm in human beings. What study proves that GMOs do not adversely affect human DNA or reproductive processes? What studies prove that the pollen from GMO crops is perfectly fine and safe for honey bees to ingest? Unless it has missed your attention, there is a significant problem these days with unexplained mass bee deaths. While the exact cause is likely complex and has yet to be discovered, GMO crop pollen as a possible factor in this has not been ruled out. I find it more than a little odd that when the bodies of dead bees are examined by entomologists, the bees digestive tracts quite often are filled with plant pollen, yet they exhibit every sign of having starved to death. Why is that, Bob?

      As a scientist, I cannot claim to have the answers to these and other related questions but the fact that such questions remain unanswered by the scientific community and not just those who work for the companies that produce the seeds and pesticides upon which GMO crops are based leads me to believe that there is at present insufficient peer-reviewed information on this topic to make an intelligent appraisal as to the safety or lack thereof where GMO crops are concerned. Considering the potential for harm to both human beings and the insects upon which we depend for much of our food production, shouldn’t we have a *complete* set of answers before pursuing this course? I believe that we should, even at the cost of some haste in bringing out these products and the profit that they can bring in.

      • If Bob had enough cognition to cite his nonexistent GMO safety study, he would’ve done so. Then again, it would’ve been one of the 90%+ of pro-GM studies conducted by a “research institution” partially financed by said GMO companies at some University Bob has never been to.

        Nor would Bob ever be so foolhardy as to overlook the fact that GMO crops are almost purpose-modified to survive spraying from exotic new pesticides – surely Bob will weigh in on the safety of the modification and not simply the technology itself.

        Or perhaps Bob is physically incapable of posting a link? Who knows what’s been hacked off of Bob over the years, I hear Type 2 Diabetes is a bitch.

  • boyo

    I say ask a person who is pro GMO a simple question.

    Do you believe evolution or God created our food?

    If evolution is the answer, ask “If we and our food evolved together over the eons, what how can science believe it can alter that relationship safely?”

    If God is the answer, ask “If our food was given to us by our creator and is good, what makes science believe it can alter that relationship safely?

    GMO seems to be a losing argument in either direction, at least to me.

    THINK SATANISTS ARE NOT INTO REMODIFYING THE PLANET EARTH?

    HERE IS MILITARY WEATHER MODIFICATION SYSTEM AT EXMOUTH WESTERN AUSTRALIA
    SHAPED LIKE A PENTAGRAM WITH THE STAR IN IT -ALL IN HONOUR OF GOOD OLD SATAN

    Just Go to Google Earth and look for yourself its on the end of the Exmouth Western Australia Peninsula called Harold Holt Submarine Communication Centre and like the HAARP Facility in Alaska it too uses a million Volts (Wikipedia) into our Ionosphere. Harold Holt was Australian PM when this abomination was constructed-He went missing and someone spread the rumour nationwide he was likely taken by a Chinese Submarine. This fits in with increased Earthquake Activity as well but thats another story.

    Peter, excellent post. I forgot about this one. Rachel FRIED Kevin with the FACTS and common sense. But most with FACTS.

    From the movie The Matrix, Morpheus offers the following:

    “The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inert, so hopelessly dependent on the system that they will fight to protect it.”

    “Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself.”

    “The Matrix is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.”

    Here lies the problem:

      Ugh. Today is worse than usual. Saturn must be moving into Capricorn now.

      What I wouldn’t give just to meet a normal well adjusted human being.

      The denial is so thick you could cut it only with a sharp knife.
