I normally pay no attention to online provocateurs, but since I’m covering some more mainstream quacks (like Vani Hari “Food Babe” and Dr. Oz), let’s take a look at people who make them seem reasonable. Natural News founder Mike Adams is in the spotlight today for not only suggesting anyone who has a rational view of Monsanto be killed, but for setting up a website to publish names and addresses so his crazed fans can commit harassment and murder more easily.
Reason‘s Ron Bailey has the story:
…it is the moral right — and even the obligation — of human beings everywhere to actively plan and carry out the killing of those engaged in heinous crimes against humanity.(emphasis his)…
Today, Monsanto collaborators — publishers, journalists and scientists — have signed on to the Nazi genocide machine of our day: the biotechnology industry and its evil desire to dominate the world’s food supply and blanket the planet with deadly chemicals that have been scientifically shown to cause horrific cancer tumors. They use many of the same tactics as the Nazi regime, too: intimidation, character assassination, threats and fabricated disinformation. Hitler’s Ministry of Propaganda, it turns out, is alive and well today in America. Its headquarters is not in Berlin but St. Louis….
I’m hoping someone will create a website listing all the publishers, scientists and journalists who are now Monsanto propaganda collaborators. I have no doubt such a website would be wildly popular and receive a huge influx of visitors, and it would help preserve the historical record of exactly which people contributed to the mass starvation and death which will inevitably be unleashed by GMO agriculture (which is already causing mass suicides in India and crop failures worldwide).
And voila, just such a website — Monsanto Collaborators — appeared the next day. The website helpfully listed “collaborators” over whom the “moral right” to kill might presumably be exercised. After the backlash, Adams hastily claimed that the Monsanto Collaborators website must be a false flag operation established by evil pro-biotech forces with the goal of discrediting him and other organic revolutionary guards.
Nick Price over at This Week in Pseudoscience has used his internet sleuthing skills to try to trace the origin and advent of the Monsanto Collaborators website. He has uncovered some intriguing clues that strongly suggest that Mike Adams is lying and that he is responsible creating Monsanto Collaborators.
