NaturalNews huckster Mike Adams asks anti-GMOers to kill scientists, supporters of crop biotech

| July 24, 2014 |

Science journalist Keith Kloor has been following the latest in a long string of deranged postings by natural/alternative medicine products huckster Mike Adams, the self-proclaimed ‘Health Ranger.” In his Tuesday post, in Mike Adams, Monsanto, Nazis and a very disturbing article, Kloor explains how Adams literally appears to have gone off the psychological deep end, calling for a mass uprising against agricultural biotechnology, including killing–yes, murder–of anyone–scientists, policy official or journalist–that wants to give the emerging technology a fair shake.

[NOTE: GLP's Jon Entine had written a profile of Mike Adams in April, 2014 that apparently irked the Health Ranger.]

As Kloor writes in a follow up commentary on July 24: “The article was accompanied by Nazi imagery and horrible pictures of the Holocaust. Adams equated Hitler’s propagandists with today’s media outlets and journalists who “have signed on to accelerate heinous crimes being committed against humanity under the false promise of ‘feeding the world’ with toxic GMOs.” 

“As if this wasn’t bad enough,” Kloor writes, “Adams then chillingly suggests (his emphasis)…”

that 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.

“This creepy, disturbing rant has taken a darker turn,” Kloor adds. “Today, I woke up to an update posted by Adams:

After this story was first published, someone has indeed launched a website that appears to be inspired by a suggestion from this story. The Monsanto Collaborators website lists the names of journalists and publications that the site says have contributed to the agricultural genocide of GMOs, comparing the 250,000+ suicides caused by GMOs to “genocide” and the Holocaust.

“Yeah, we can guess who that “someone” is,” Kloor writes. “This update by Adams singles out Jon Entine and the ‘Monsanto Collaborators’ website lists a number of publishers and journalists, including myself.”

Here is Kloor’s reactions to Adams first deranged post.

*******************************

I really thought Mike Adams couldn’t write anything more possibly deranged than he already has at his Natural News website. (Readers of this blog have seen a freaky side of Adams.) Jon Entine has the scoop on his editorial output and alt-med empire. Entine’s piece, which Forbes cravenly took down (after Adams threatened to sue), asked if Adams was the “most ‘dangerous’ anti-science GMO critic?”

That was meant as a rhetorical question, since Adams spouts all manner of outrageous misinformation on GMOs. But after reading the latest piece on GMOs by Adams, I have to wonder if he is literally dangerous. Here’s the title of his piece:

Biotech genocide, Monsanto collaborators and the Nazi legacy of ‘science’ as justification for murder

Here’s how it starts:

(NaturalNews) Monsanto is widely recognized as the most hated and most evil corporation on the planet. Even so, several internet-based media websites are now marching to Monsanto’s orders, promoting GMOs and pursuing defamatory character assassination tactics against anyone who opposes GMOs, hoping to silence their important voices. … All of them are Monsanto collaborators who have signed on to accelerate heinous crimes being committed against humanity under the false promise of “feeding the world” with toxic GMOs.

He goes on to talk about Nazi collaborators and how this history has a modern-day parallel:

Today, a number of once-independent media sites are selling out to corporate interests and quickly becoming Monsanto collaborators. This is readily apparent by noticing which media sites attack Dr. Mercola, the Food Babe, Jeffrey Smith, the Health Ranger or anyone else fighting against the scourge of GMO genocide against humanity. These attacks all have one thing in common: they are orchestrated by paid biotech muckrakers — people I call “Monsanto collaborators.”

But towards the end is where this rant turns really disturbing:

Interestingly, just yesterday German President Joachim Gauck celebrated the lives of those brave Nazi officers who attempted to assassinate Adolf Hitler in 1944. Their attempted Wolf’s Lair bombing failed, but it was an honorable attempt to rid the world of tremendous evil by killing one of the people responsible for it.

This official ceremony sends a message to the world, and that official message from the nation of Germany to the rest of the world says that 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.

Adams bolded those words for emphasis. What do you think he’s suggesting there? Maybe Dr. Oz could ask him the next time he invites Adams on to his show.

    It is simply bizarre how he calls for killing people who he deems “Monsanto Collaborators” and then says “Do not misinterpret this article as any sort of call for violence, as I wholly disavow any such actions.” He’s trying to have his cake and eat it too.

    • First Officer

      I believe the law will still call what quacks like a duck, a duck, regardless of its billing. He’s now yelling fire in a theater.

        Actually, no. The original saying was “a man can not have his cake and eat his cake”. The verbs are often reversed, but that’s not really my point. If you’re going to be pedantic and harp on semantics you can at least be right about them.

    • CH Shannon

      Yes, he has a track record for having it both ways. Just think of all the “Big Pharma just wants to make money off of people by selling pills!!!” “articles” that are filled with ads for buying herbal supplements.

  • First Officer

    Mike Adams was pushing the envelope of free speech up until yesterday but he now has removed all doubt he has crossed the line into direct and clear physical threats. Civil and criminal charges need to be brought against this before it goes any further.

    • Ripshed

      He has been reported to the FBI as a result of his most recent article. After the most recent incident with an Alex Jones’ follower committing murder, the FBI has a renewed interest in domestic home-grown terrorists.

      If his comment doesn’t cross the line to incitement of violence, it sure comes very close.

      • First Officer

        He called for hit lists and now, probably made them himself. I’m not a lawyer, but i think that makes it pretty clear he’s not only jumped off the deep end but he’s swan diving to boot.

  • Editor

    Monsanto should threaten to sue Forbes.

    • First Officer

      How so?

      • neubarth

        Anybody can sue anybody else for anything. That does not mean the case will not be thrown out of court on the first day of the trial.

  • Jeremy Rawley

    Time to throw this fucker behind bars. Maybe he’ll get a GMO-fed Johnson up his ass from Bubba after pissing and moaning about how prison food contains Bt this and Roundup-ready that.

    • alytron

      Please lets not make prison rape jokes. This guy is horrible, but so is suggesting he get raped.

      • Jeremy Rawley

        I prefer to think of it as karmic justice.

  • neubarth

    Less than five percent of all human cancers have been linked to Chemicals according to hundreds of studies of the causes of the various types of cancer. There is no reason for that lunatic to get all worked up about something that is not a clear and present danger.

    • Eric Bjerregaard

      clear and present danger? is that what Harrison Ford thinks?

  • https://www.facebook.com/DaveOwenK David Owen

    So now Scientists, Professors, Teachers, Farmers and countless others are all in the crosshairs of a prominent, heavily armed conspiracy theorist group simply because we use facts. Does anybody else see where this is heading? Foodterrorism is like a nasty virus.

  • Sterling Ericsson

    Isn’t just setting up such a website with the stated intent to harm or kill people (regardless of if the intent is actualized) a violation of several laws?

  • Kevin Folta

    This whole move will backfire in our favor. The Nazi thing will be a total turnoff to the folks in the middle and especially in Europe.

    Plus I heard the Nazis called Adams and Monsanto Collaborators and asked them to stop, that they were harming their image.

    • First Officer

      They must’ve threatened to put him on their list !

      (We’re going to need a spreadsheet to keep all these lists straight!)

  • GMOK

    Kenebec Potatoes? GMO can mean any number of things and pretty much all food we eat now wasn’t meant to be grown or produced here so it’s all essentially GMO. How far you want to take it?

  • mickey_moussaoui

    Nut job. Let me guess, hmmm he votes Democrat, right?
    I’d make sure he gets on a FBI watch list

    • adibese

      I’d say the right contains the majority of nut jobs.

      • mickey_moussaoui

        heh, hardly, you have the majority of greenhouse gasbag enviro weenies and 0bama koolaid drinkers.
        That’s enough

        • adibese

          I believe you may be one of those nut jobs.

          • Zac

            I believe both sides of the political spectrum have plenty of loons so this seems to be a case of the pot calling the kettle black.

          • Eric Bjerregaard

            AAhhh, but the pot is correct. The kettle is black. Zac has a few correct points. The left doesn’t understand economics and often some righties want to limit personal freedoms. A bug chunk of the anti gmo leadership just seems corrupt to me. I often equate them with al Sharpton. Then there are those that I suspect are honestly misled, with such strong emotional commitments that they get upset and cannot seem to have a rational discussion.

    • Music for Kids

      Did you read the article in question? He considers `lefties’ one of his main enemies, probably because progressives generally rely on evidence not tradition to support their views.

  • BJOSEPHS

    97% of climate scientists are 100% correct, however 100% of GMO scientists are 100% wrong and should be killed

    • adibese

      You’re not serious… right? Right? btw, 2,000 studies… not one showed harm from GMO’s. The only “evidence” that GMO’s are harmful has had to have been fabricated.

    • jschmidt2

      wrong on both counts.

    • BJOSEPHS

      sarcasm

    • john649

      not only wrong but total bs.

  • fredgill

    The Left claims to be pro-science and yet many on that side of the aisle lend support to the anti-GMO, anti-Monsanto hysteria. To be fair, few of them would support a nutcake like Adams, but they seem to have a child-like fear of GMO and a child-like faith in various unscientific nutritional remedies.

  • Democrat EBTbaggers

    That moron should be fed some of the tastiest GMOs the SuperMax cafeteria has to offer.

  • Voice of tReason

    Of course, if his nonsense is actually deemed as a violation of the law, he’ll just blame Monsanto.
    Magical Monsanto owns the government, ya know!

    And enough with the left vs right comments. Both sides have their pet conspiracy theories and a bevy of ding-bats to spout them. Adams seem to take his ding-battery across all political boarders. He’s a renascence ding-bat.

    • http://www.geneticliteracyproject.org/ Jon Entine

      Bingo…he’s just begun doing that as the blowback on this obviously caught him by surprise:

      http://www.naturalnews.com/046147_Monsanto_Collaborators_false_flag_operation_GMO_skeptics.html

      UPDATE 2: After careful analysis, I have come to the conclusion that the Monsanto Collaborators website is a bait-and-switch trap engineered by the biotech industry in an effort to lure in support from GMO skeptics and then discredit them with some sort of insane “call to action” of some kind. Click here to see the evidence and reasoning on this. Because of this, I am recommending that members of the GMO skeptics community refrain from linking to or endorsing the Monsanto Collaborators website.

      Additionally, immediately upon publication of this article, the usual GMO corporate shills immediately began to spread utterly false and defamatory information about what this article actually stated, inventing false quotes and intentionally citing sentences out of context. We expect nothing less than lies and fabrications from the GMO crowd, of course, but they have taken it to a whole new level in their attempts to silence this powerful story that tells the truth about the agricultural holocaust that has already killed hundreds of thousands of innocent people.

      I have always stated in this story, as you can see below: “For the record, in no way do I condone vigilante violence against anyone, and I believe every condemned criminal deserves a fair trial and a punishment that fits the crime. Do not misinterpret this article as any sort of call for violence, as I wholly disavow any such actions. I am a person who demands due process under the law for all those accused of crimes.”

      • john649

        thank you. Expect nothing less from these pro-gmo pseudo-science liars.

  • brock2118

    I guess we have to tolerate this because of the first amendment. But the same fools who claim the scientists “models” indicate we should deindustrialize and return to energy poverty apparently applaud the GMO designers trying to improve our food supply.

  • john

    Anti-GM and global warming denial are just two sides of the
    same coin. A persons refusal to accept overwhelming scientific
    evidence.

    GM crops have been more thoroughly tested than anything
    in the history of mankind. The companies used the entire population of
    the US as test subjects. Any problems would have become obvious in the first decade of use.

    • Tyler Hurson

      Back in the 90s when Calgene’s tomato was released, GMO opponents were promising a Frankenfood doomsday. I guess it takes 21 years for the GE virus to take effect.

  • Guest

    Rather than a rational rebuttal of John Entine’s criticisms to Mike
    Adams practices, Mr Adams abuses the legal system to silence dissension.
    Now this…threats of violence? It reeks of moral vacancy and derangement.I’m glad that the FBI and Homeland Security will now be watching Mike Adams more closely since he made clear calls to violence, and put them in print for all to see.

    This is the start of a divide this Is a peice of a bigger puzzle. dont tamper with nature we are what we eat long term exposure to humans could have a negitiv effect.s. Not only to our phisical bodies but to our mental health and to future reproduction of our species and others that we share on our planet.with. Trying to slander other ppls thoughts with fears from our past wont get a resolve for this conflict and other conflictions. As for the order of death to others if we are as smart as.we.claim to be we are obligated by our intelligence to care for all life I call it (the burden of the mighty).LIFE IS PRECIOUS DONT DESTROY LIFE

    • Tyler Hurson

      If we never tampered with nature we’d still be living in caves.

  • deedee
  • Mike Stephens

    This is a great example of how crazy this is getting. People are freaking out about GM food used for 18 years without a single hospitalization linked to it and yet some think there is genocide.

    The internet became an equalizer then an unequalizer – with this and probably several other issues the insane can have more time than sane.

    If I wanted to become informed I am not sure there is anywhere on the internet I could get the truth maybe about anything

    Adams common denominator is not negotiable. As for the rest of you pro Monsanto, Bon appetit and don’t expect any prayers.

  • Colectivo Orgánico

    You’d like it or not, Monsanto is a killing machine here in South America. I don’t care about all your scientific arguments. Monsanto and corporations alike, are prosecuting, poisoning and killing people. You’d like it or not, that’s fact. I would like to see how your scientific mind takes on this burden.
