As the TKPOTD from three years ago today points out, it’s about the Benjamins.

I admire Bono, and not just because he’s a good musician. I also respect the social activism that is grounded in his Christian faith.
The Dread Performer Kimberlin has taken to bad mouthing Bono over at the jtmp dot org website. (I read it so you don’t have to—even though my doing so probably doubles their legitimate web traffic.) You see, Bono wants to help feed the hungry in Africa, and he’s willing to partner with companies such as Monsanto in the process. Monsanto, of course, must be evil because they are a purveyor of GMO seeds. Bono, Brett would have us believe, is “selling out.”
Brett Kimberlin and his organizations oppose “Frankenfoods.” They would prefer to have upwards of a half-million children die each year from vitamin A deficiency rather than have golden rice available in poor countries. They would rather Africans starve than let them plant insect- or blight-resistance corn.
OTOH, poor Asian and African kids aren’t likely to hit a donate button on a JTMP or Velvet Revolution dot US webpage, whereas there may be a few anti-science moonbats who still donate.
Follow the money.

Gentle Reader, if you read The
Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s LOLsuits, you’ll probably come to the same conclusion I did: Kimberlin instigated his campaign of lawfare in an attempt to prevent the donors to his not-for-profits from finding out who they were really supporting.
I don’t believe his brsss knuckles reputation management has worked out as he had hoped. OTOH, everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.
