I just received this comment a few days ago from the blog post on GMO Free Kauai: Silencing a Dissident post from another blog. The blog basically outlines how if you speak up against these activists, they will do anything within their social media power to silence you. It’s personal and they’ll do it.
The original post has nothing to do with pesticides or spraying and completely ignores the fact that they feel that it is okay to personally attack people who speak out. Yup, that’s how they do it. If you don’t like what is being said, bully them online. Destroy their own personal reputation online for that is the Kauai way. Not. We don’t do that here in Hawaii unless you’re an anti-GMO club member.
So apparently, when you see the things that they post as having any evidence of no aloha, they now call you an “antagonist.” Wait? Who is an antagonist now? The last I saw was that these anti-GMO club members seem to think that it is all right pass out fliers with their propaganda around farmers’ markets, support coercive intimidation tactics, accuse others of genocide, baby killers, and so on. From the sound of this comment from an anonymous person “lotsofaloha,” it seems that anything is justified. Whether it be being rude towards others because of his or her perception of what is being done, despite the fact that the data does not support this person’s claim.
I find it totally amazing also that I’m accused of “fanning the fires.” So when someone speaks out against this kind of tactics of coercive intimidation, it is considered fanning the fire and finger pointing? Well, if your supporters say nasty stuff and do rude things on the social media, it’s your own commentary that is fanning the fire caught for all to see. You know that saying, think before you talk? It might be a good thing to do before you post something if you don’t want it called out. I am pointing that out square and center because hey, I can’t believe you said that! Local people don’t talk like that to each other!
So ironic how these commenters ask for positivity and aloha and hate the name calling when they were the first one to give me a new name. Joni Tokyo Rose. Um, lotsofaloha, can you tell your friends there in the GMO Free Kauai club to stop making up names and wishing that I had babies with birth defects or wish me to drink RoundUp? That’s getting old. If you think that is the aloha way, you obviously don’t know what aloha really is.
