Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

A visit to Brett Kimberlin’s anti-GMO-food website (citizensagainstgmo.com) reminded me of a 1937 quote from George Orwell:

One sometimes gets the impression that the mere words “Socialism” and “Communism” draw towards them with magnetic force every fruit-juice drinker, nudist, sandal-wearer, sex-maniac, Quaker, “Nature Cure” quack, pacifist, and feminist in England.

In America these days, it’s “Progressives” that fit Orwell’s bill.

Of course, Brett’s “legitimate” businesses that he used to launder his drug money were a health food store and restaurant, so he has been associated with moonbat cuisine for decades. Still, I wonder if the site generates many clicks on the Donate button? Given that it hasn’t be updated for about a year-and-a-half, probably not.

Enjoy!

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.
