Left’s War On Science Watch: Reason goes to see the anti-GMO crazypants.

You know that Reason.tv‘s got a good video when they can’t get past the intro without being (apparently) assaulted by one of Teh Crazy People.  In this particular case, it’s Teh Anti-GMO Crazy people.  You know: the ones that the Democrats don’t llike to talk about when the conversation turns to The War On Science.

Via Pejman Yousefzadeh, whose title says it all: “People Who Are Against Genetically Modified Foods Are Ill-Informed, and Willing to Let Millions Starve to Death.” With one caveat: it may be closer to tens of millions at this point. Not that the anti-GMO people really care.  Or are capable of doing basic math.  Or have even the most basic understanding of the history of technology*…

PS: The ironic part in all of this is that I got me, Pejman, and Reason.tv together, we’d all probably readily enough agree that GMO food powerhouse Monsanto proves that corporations are people, because only people are assholes.  But that’s because they’re total suckups to the Democrats; making this, of course, a truly enjoyable Blue-on-Blue scenario.

*Seriously. If you want to lecture me about how people need to go back to nature, fine, OK.  BUT TAKE OFF YOUR GORAM GLASSES FIRST. You need to at least pretend that you believe your own BS, all right?

    More left-wing anti-science idiocy – carbon-free sugar.

  • midwestconservative says:

    Aren’t Libertarians and by association Reason.com against GMO’s as well?

    • Moe_Lane says:

      …Not really, no. They probably have a problem with crony capitalism involving GMOs, though.

    • whamodyne says:

      No, libertarians are into the whole “issues solved via private industry” thing, like mass starvation being fixed by a for-profit corporation and not some government program.

      In general.

      However it doesn’t help that Monsanto in particular being a total asshole as Moe mentioned.

  • Jeffstag says:

    I think Monsanto is a tricky problem for libertarinas. It’s an example of a free-market company restricting personal freedom (in this case, the freedom to replant to seeds you’ve grown yourself). At least out my way, there’s a lot of Monsanto hate/rebelion from a lot of libertarian leaning farmers who also like to use their products. If corporations are people, Monsanto is a frenemy to a lot of folks.
