Food or Moonbattery? Kenya Chose Latter

Even as moonbattery destroys Western Civilization, at least it must benefit the sacred brown-skinned masses of the Third World, whose interests liberals so sanctimoniously place above all others. Or maybe not:

Kenya’s government has banned genetically modified (GM) organisms from entering the country, a move that reports say could result in a big negative impact on the country’s plans for biotechnology research and development. …

The driving force behind the Kenyan government’s decision to bypass its own biotech watchdog and ban GM imports out of hand? The Seralini et al. GM rat study, possibly one of the most ill-received high-profile scientific publications in recent memory…

The country passed strict liability laws in 2009 that negate the need for proof of fault in liability claims involving biosafety. Since then, Kenya has experienced a bottleneck at the port of Mombasa for shipments into the country while they are evaluated against existing GM-related rules. Now such shipments … will cease altogether. The upshot will be that Kenya’s “structural corn deficit,” which was, according to the USDA, at 300,000 metric tons in 2011, will have to be made up only from producers of non-GM corn.

But even if the government forces peasants to starve, it is only out of concern for their health.

Again we see that moonbattery benefits absolutely no one except the bureaucratic and “mainstream” media tapeworms who drive it (and not even them in the long run, after they have killed their host). Having no redeeming qualities at all, it is not an ideology, but a disease.

Applied moonbattery.

    Won’t the smug hipsters feel good about this one.

  • James McEnanly

    Aside from sea-food, venison and mushrooms, everything we eat is genetically modified from natural sources. The familiar ear of corn could not exist in the wild. Modern liberalism is now on an anti-technology jihad. National Review contributor Robert Zubrin has written a book, The Merchants of Despair detailing the Left’s obsession with getting rid of the less desirable.

    How many people have to starve to death before these people are finally discredited?

  • bob sykes

    This is a very good decision, well thought out that has no conceivable downside–for Europeans.

  • DJ

    One thing everyone must consider is an unintended consequence of GMF is it’s resulting in bacteria mutations that are much more virolent than the previous strains. Maybe the Kenyans inadvertently stumbled onto the right decision in this case?

  • whotothewhat

    I think many generations of corrupt Government in Kenya is more to blame. But Corps like Monsanto are being allowed to take land away from the locals and then use it to grow GM food.

    Tin Foil Hat Time? Maybe but control of food and how it is grown is a key aspect to elites plan to control the world.

    As I understand the situation if Kenya allows GM corn they will not be able to export foodstuffs to the EU. The Kenyan government is faced with a choice of trying to import food or being unable to export to their largest market. After considering their options I honestly can’t say that I think that they made the wrong choice. If you want to blame anybody blame the greens and the agriculture interests in the EU.

  • Sam Adams

    Lemme see here…I have a choice between GM food and no food….

    Boy that is a tough decision.

    Food is a very personal thing.
    I will never be able to convince you of the safety of GM crops as long as your belly is full.
    This affords you choice, which is the ultimate goal.
    Unfortunately, others do not enjoy this luxury.

    There are massive hurdles in Kenya that are causing it’s hunger problems, not the least of which includes food storage, transportation, irrigation, and distribution.
    In other words, Socialism.
    Monsanto is (or at least was) part of the solution.
    GMO is but one of many tools Monsanto uses to develop higher yielding crops suited for the climate they are grown in.
    Drought, disease, insect resistance.
    Even crops which contain higher amounts of specific vitamins

    The stuff you hear about Monsanto taking over agriculture in Kenya are directly off the stable floor.
    This misinformation is disseminated directly by the Marxists at the University of Nairobi
    Monsanto has a research facility in Kenya. That is all.
    Believe me, I have heard all this first hand from a Kenyan Commie.
    It’s those cave dwelling university types who preach on the evils of food storage and modern agricultural practices, and otherwise encourage the old ways of tribal socialism which has kept them trapped in the stone ages.

    Banning the use of DDT becuase of Racheal Carsons Junk Science and Lies has lead to phamine & pestelense in Africa and the deep ecologists are happy about it also becuase of the lies of PAUL EHRLICH as well

    I work in ag-biotech. I work directly with scientists from all over the world, including many people from Africa but mostly from the west coast (Sierra Leone, Liberia, Mali, etc.) and these are their first-hand, experiential stories. They despise leftist dictators with white hot fervor for what they’ve done to their people with food confiscation as well as their leftist sympathizers who block harmless GM foods.

    @ Ghost of FA Hayek

    Yes, I understand all that and you make excellent points. My only concern is the unintended consequences such as the bacteria mutations resulting from GMF. From what has been reported these bacteria mutations are much more virulent that their predecessors thus rendering existing pesticides ineffectual. The real downside to all this is the mutant bacteria resulting from GMF could possibly wipe ALL the crops (both GM and non-GM) thus transforming an already bad situation into a totally dire one. Is that a risk worth taking? I say let the Kenyans decide. They are the one’s that have to live with the consequences one way or the other.

    I made a Kony meme on my parent’s computer and saved Uganda! I’ll have to make a Kenya meme now and save it. First I have to find my skinny mom jeans and checkerboard Vans and John Lennon glasses so I can look the part.

    It’s like when the moonbats close down child labor in 3rd world countries, forcing all the children to go back to turning tricks for pervert sex tourists.

  • Jodie

    I watched about 10 minutes of a PBS show yesterday about Kenya. The people live in horrific conditions; starving and waiting to be tortured, burned, killed and/or raped. One of the women living in a camp had 11 children. That’s where I loose my compassion for people like that. These people know that they are bringing children into a life of horrific suffering; yet, they just gotta get they groove on, day in and day out.

    No wonder Imam Hussein the Immaculate cleared out of the glorious homeland of Kenya as quick as he could.

    I see your point but you might want to keep in mind that she can expect that some or even most will not live to reach maturity. She is making preperation for her old age the only way that she can.

    It’s a twofer. They get to feel morally superior and they also get their sex toys.

    I am familiar with herbicide resistance, but this a common phenomenon with herbicides for both traditional AND GM crops.
    This means that crops such as glyphosate resistant corn must still be grown using traditional chemicals/mechanical cultivation to remain effective.
    In the end, these technologies are simply another tool in the toolbox.

    I had a discussion with a Catholic priest from Kenya once.
    Let me tell you this, none of us on this site can hold a candle to the disdain this priest held toward pigslam.
    He talked about severe beatings, rapes, forced conversions, to entire families being slaughtered in the middle of the night by these bloodthirsty murders, while the Kenyan government sat by in fear of upsetting the European liberal PC gods in control of food aid.
    Meanwhile Obama funnels your tax dollars into a push for Sharia law there

    The Prime Minister of Kenya is Raila Odinga, who is a family friend of Barack Obama. In fact some sources have maintained that Raila Odinga may actually be a relative of Obama – all of the Luo tribe, anyway.

    See Kenya, see the future of the US.

    This reminds of Tom Cullen and the Pepto Bismol. Tom has a stomach ache and Nick Andros tries to get Tom to take some Pepto Mismol which he knows will help Tom. Unfortunately Julie Lowry—a sex-crazed phychopath jilted by Nick—convinces Tom that the medicine is in fact poison.

    I am a bit torn on this one , but in the instance of moonbats killing their own young could be their only “redeeming quality” .

    Sorry, I’m as conservative as it gets but GMO’s are the equivalent of eating poison. A full belly today, liver failure tomorrow. When we eat GMO’s we are eating herbicides and pesticides. And they are now proven to produce LESS than properly grown, heirloom crops.
