As a voting constituent, I feel that I have a right to voice my opinion to my Congressional Representative, Tulsi Gabbard. I have noticed how she’s been posting lots of things with the Babes Against Biotech pages from months ago. (She apparently drinks from the same punchbowl as the anti-GMO mob all do when she starts using the terms Monsanto Protection Act.)
Honestly, I was shocked to see that this representative was okay with being associated with activists that endorse crop destruction.
So, I decided to no longer be quiet about this at all because I have seen and felt so much hate and ugliness being directed towards farmers here locally. That is not okay with me at all. How can such a representative of the “people” avoid all the evidence presented? Is it ignorance like what the anti-GMO mob clings on to or what is it? I decided to give her the benefit of the doubt and simply voice my opinion of the issue to her.
This is the response I got back from her:
Okay, so she visited one farm and went to this anti-GMO event:
So I pressed her a little more:
Others jumped into the thread too with these comments:
Her team’s response to me was that I should contact her about visiting the papaya farm. Which I immediately did that day.
Well, that was several months ago and our farm has yet to hear a peep from our representative regarding this issue. That tells us farming families a lot about who she’s listening to and it’s not us.
I went back to her page to attempt to post something and lo and behold, I discovered this!
When you get this kind of post that only allows you to “share,” you know you’ve been banned. We know who she’s really looking out for now. It’s her Babes Against Biotech anti-GMO mob and not certain farmers in our islands. Ignorance not only runs in the general public but also in our own congressional representative.
So Team Tulsi and Tulsi Gabbard, if you should find my page, I am all about getting educated. Please take the time to learn about biotechnology through some simple videos like this one. The world needs more research and science, not the perpetuation of ignorance and fear that you support with your stance.
