The Young Turks are Morons of the Highest Calibre

 

The Young Turks are morons of the highest calibre who believe it would be a crime not to publish every thought that tumbles through their head. I have never made my views on them public before, but what they have published recently online pushed me over the edge. They posted a video titled ‘Monsanto Giving People Cancer?’ (because protecting yourself from a lawsuit with that question mark, despite in the video saying their products are giving people cancer, shows how much of a backbone you have) where the Turks stumbled their way through a CNN blog post by vomiting out the text practically verbatim the whole time with an undeserved grin of unwarranted self-satisfaction as they say that people like me who see the potential of GMOs are either paid trolls by Monsanto or gullible fools who have been taken in by the evil corporation.

    As an instinctive GM sceptic I’m keen to read your impartial views.

    What’s your view of USA banning enforced labelling of GM foods. Doesn’t this add to people’s fears and fuel suspicion?

    • The labeling itself is silly. GE is a process, not a product. Do we require labeling of mutagenic crops?

      Beyond that, adding a label implies that there’s something dangerous about GE crops. The Organic Consumer Association (an organic trade group) are the main proponents of labeling specifically because they can scare customers into buying their more-expensive “organic” products by labeling anything made through GE.

    • It isn’t banned. How it ends up being done now with Trump at the helm is a big question. But a law was passed for this during the Obama administration.

      That said, GMO labels as activists want are terrible nonsense. I am opposed to anything that isn’t evidence-based on government food labels. If you have a philosophical problem with GMOs that should be handled like Kosher or Halal by the group that has the philosophical issues and the government should be left ouf setting those rules or enforcing them.

  2. Personally, I think it’s cool that my Cheetos are (as it reads on the label recently) “a product of genetic engineering”. That sounds so badass!! And if that’s the way things will be labeled in the US, fine with me. I am, of course, in the minority as I actually understand what genetic engineering is and don’t naysay it just because it’s not natural or whatever bullshit people spout. Also, Cheetos are barely a food anyway, so I doubt the organic soccer Moms even know that this label exists. I look for it on all of my packaged food because, again, badass.

  3. You’re a joke. They’re having a real conversation in which you yourself said they provided the real research which shows gmos do not cause cancer in anyway… and you’re whining about the title? The title is a question. And they answered it. Without being ridiculous conspiracy theory click bait like a lot of trash out there. The young Turks have constructive conversations all the time attaching different angles of the issues but whiners like you don’t have the attention span to actually listen you just start whining… talk about snowflake. Were you triggered? awww
