CBC: 14-yr old Rachel Parent debates an asshole on GMOs

Filed under: Uncategorized — grypa666 @ 21:48

 Best picks from comments below:

  • Dr. Rick Kirschner: Kevin keeps making this about ‘Shouldn’t we be conducting experiments?’ when it’s about ‘Shouldn’t we stop experimenting without controls or consent?’ If we get labeling, we will at last be able to connect cause and effect relationships. He’s using straw man arguments.

  • dainis michel: The root of Kevin’s argument comes from a parasitic perspective. Science can and could be applied to create healthier foods, but that’s not happening with many GMO’s. Dangerous, untested, and poisonous plant-like creations are sold disguised as the sustainable foods they once were. To grow these crops, you need to poison the environment. Instead of creating health abundance and prosperity, these seeds are funneling profits to their “creators” while causing death and endangering our species.

  • Andrey Denker: I can see a bright Girl and two mentally deficient adults with already genetically modified brains

  • zoliezee: The elite are killing us through our food that’s why cancer rates up 1000 per cent that’s why 1 in 55 children now have ADD that’s why on the Georgian guide stones it says that the worlds population to be kept under 1 billon.. Research!!!

    It all starts with the New World Order!! Its not a conspiracy but FACT!!!!

  • johanao10: The problem with GMOs are when Monsanto’s strain interbreeds with other farmer’s crops and all of sudden Monsanto’s strain is found in the competitor’s crop i.e Monsanto now owns this crop. They monopolize a staple food and drive up prices.

  • DCWatchdog: Well you know Mosanto has people in our govt now so they are getting what they want which casts even more doubt on the legitimacy and safety of their products. Clarence Thomas, FDA vice president, and a few others.

    Most of congress seems to be traitors and I’m talking both R and D. You might see states breaking off from the Union which they’re allowed to do constitutionally if it gets a lot worse. This federal govt lacks credibility, legitimacy, and approval rating.

    Whats funny is having the GMOs might be a death sentence. How many people have gotten cancers from it, nobody knows. They could just as easily plant non-gmo crops and feed those people so his point is invalid. It also casts doubt on his credibility. He has a pro-GMO talking point and a terrible failure of one.

  • Garth Woodworth: […] You think it is ok to alter evolutionary balance and stability unless someone can prove that it is unsafe according to your very low standards. No one proved DDT was unsafe until thousands of creatures were killed or extirpated. People with attitudes like yours are the problem.

  • Mike Johnson:  […] GMO crops are NOT superior to non-GMO. “Junk science” = If you don’t agree with the finding it is “junk science”. Animal testing does indicate accelerated aging. But there aren’t long term studies on humans. Many generations of rats can be tested and results can be studied. The first GMO food was introduced in 1994. There has not been enough time to study the same generational affects. Why would someone make up results when they study this???

    O’Leary kept focusing on third world countries and presenting it like either you allow GMO’s or millions of people will die of starvation. If the purpose of GMO’s is to feed third world countries, why is it fed to people who are not in danger of starving? Why test on everyone on the planet and endanger worldwide ecosystems? Why not test it only in certain controlled environments, on only those who risk death without this experimental food, at least until it is proven safe?

    Our whole society tests things and if they aren’t safe, we don’t sell them. Cars, boats, planes, MICROWAVES, CELLPHONES, and even our food. Oh, that car has a defective gas tank. They recall the car. MICROWAVES are tested to make sure that the consumer isn’t nuked along with the food. CELLPHONES are tested to try to make radiation not exceed acceptable levels. The burden lies with the producer of whatever they are selling. I don’t define scientific “progress” until it is proven, which it is not!

  • Alex Muir:  I’d like to see Kevin debate with Dr. Thierry Vrain, formerly Head of Biotechnology at Agriculture Canada’s Summerland Research Station, was once a supporter of GMO. He has in the last 10 years changed his position after paying attention to the flow of published studies coming from Europe that questioned the impact and safety of engineered food and is now sharing his concerns.

  • wavesport777: @ 11:11 the host says “I don’t have the choice to avoid GMO corn if I live in America”. I don’t agree with this statement. Start buying organic locally grown foods. If the food products were not available 60 years ago (example, boxed food, prepared foods, junk foods etc) do not eat these “foods”. GMO corn syrup is used in almost all “food” and drinks on our shelves in North America. Everyone has a choice but everyone should be given that choice through labeling.

  • likmahchoda: I’m alarmed at how few views this clip has received.

    The objective of chem trails, fluoridation, GMO foods and mandatory vaccinations is to deliberately kill off the human population. The elite have planned this for over a hundred years. Watch the stock market. Read the protocols for the learned elders of zion. Learn about Henry Kissinger and David Rockefeller. This takeover has been in the works for generations and their plans are almost complete. The fiat system will fail, then comes NWO.

  • cbhavsar1: Reptilian fascist O’Leary deserves to spend rest of his life on some other planet. Leave earth humans alone.

  • Pete G: Kevin O is a right-wing moron whose main concern is the money and the bottom line. If there are benefits to GMO products — fine; exactly what are they? Regardless, let us know what products are GMO and let the people decide if we want to buy them. THAT is the issue here: we want to know what products are GMO and which aren’t. Labelling should be law in Canada. Period. If GMO companies are so proud of their products, why are they against letting everyone know which ones are theirs?

  • DCWatchdog: […] when it comes to GMO. Its a HUGE safety concern for a lot of us and honestly I think Monsanto and others should be shut down, jailed, and more for experimenting on us without our approval. She’s simply not just sharing opinions, she was also sharing acts.I think more people are becoming aware of the games that people in politics play and time is running out for that.
  • Erwin Alber: The people who are pushing and profiting from these things should all be in jail, or even better given the death penalty as a deterrent to the rest of the psychopaths.

    Also, I don’t agree that it’s fine to grow GMO crops as long as we have labelng because the GMO crops pollute GMO-free crops so that in the end ALL our crops will be polluted, making labeling completely redundant!

    So-called bio-technology is in fact death technology which is like vaccination programmes, fluoridation and chemtrails used to drastically reduce the world population.

  • bunkermh: O’Leary really presents himself as a sell-out asshole. He speaks as if starving populations have to die unless they are fed GMO. The whole world could be fed on what the USA spends on its bloated military industrial complex — without having to resort to Frankenfood! “Hi starving person! Our country has raped and pillaged your country into economic ruin with our economic hit men. Now eat our toxic GMO food and thank us later for your slow death! Btw, we’ll profit from your slow death, too!”
  • exilepec: Here is the point: Monsanto and others like them want GMO foods because they are patentable. This will allow these mega-corporations to legally own and therefore control the world’s food supply. All these pro/con arguments are just fluff. The real danger here is social and economic, not health (although the potential health detriment is not trivial). Most people oppose GMO foods for the wrong reasons.

  • maluorno: i like how the hosts imply that there are ‘lobbyists’ on both sides of the issue… Multinational conglomerate on one side – 14 year old girl on the other. I wonder which has more clout….hmmm
  • MessageOfTheKingdom2: This man is actually afraid that labeling will lead to a reduction of the consumption of GMO corn etc. if labeling goes into effect. He knows that the more people become aware of GMOs the ill effects that are not being reported by the MSMedia they will shun it. All of MSMedia personnel pay checks are linked to Big Pharma and companies like Monsanto. One produce sickness, the other maintains sickness. For a company to own a seed is too big a price for the world to pay. No GMO!!!
  • NewDayDawning2012: Experimenting on food is one thing – experimenting on US, without our knowledge or consent, via our dinner plate is quite another. God bless you Rachel. Namaste.

    I *really* want to reach through my computer and strangle that asshole. What kind of jerk accuses people of being shills who really just want safe food for everyone? Does he really think she’s being paid to do this? Who the hell would pay her? The non-profit groups? LOL. Dumb-ass. Obviously, he has something to gain from biotech. He totally brushed off her extremely valid points and just kept repeating himself. Classic troll behavior. I bet he gets paid well from his stocks…

    WTF? what are those guys trying to do? What questions are those? Thats like finding the weak spot of a 14 year old to make her sound less believable?

    Seriously, girl you are freakin’ awesome, I have tears of happiness in my eyes, when I see kids like you beeing so passionated about this. Thank you.

    Plus he spoke about a death sentence…wanted her to remind him of the death sentence of the Indian farmers who are commiting suicide after Monsanto took their land!!!

    He only attacks her and never qualifies his beliefs…what a jerk!

  • Raven Krogstad 26 minutes ago

    The countries they intend to help with Gmo’s are banning them because they have already seen some of the effects of them. We in the US that are growing them will be the ones bitten in the butt for starting the whole thing and it has already begun.

  • bemyvineyard 29 minutes ago

    As a mother, I would just reach over and slap the back of his head.

    But, then again we would not have seen his ignorance if he wouldn’t have been put up against a 14 yr old.? Rachel Rocks!!!!

  • bunkermh 29 minutes ago

    I love to see our youth not buying the establishment’s bullshit and not afraid to stand-up and speak the truth! Shame on all the indifferent and willfully ignorant adults that aren’t doing the same! If I had been Rachel’s father standing by in the studio, I would’ve wanted to run out and punch that seedy, disgusting, idiotic O’Leary right in the nose!

    and thats why i support the 14 year old

  • earthdance11 52 minutes ago

    How disgusting to call environmentalists, lobbyists. Kevin O’ what a horrible fool – “death sentences to thousands of people that have less advantages” – WHAT A LOAD OF BS – it is poverty that harms these people and lack of a balanced diversified diet. And pushing around a young girl – what has happened to adults that they make their living by lying to poor people and children. I am a adult that is sick to death at the deception/ greed that is harming so many people and our planet.

    Kevin has a millstone tied around his neck and someone just pushed him overboard..not wise to do that to an innocent child. I say let the Cancer from GMO’s eat away and kill off this type of person anyway, we don’t need him wasting our oxygen.

  • Diana Welch 1 hour ago

    I think she’s just speaking for the young people. I’m sure she realizes that all the older people are being affected too. Maybe she feels we should have our own spokes person.

  • judithnarz 1 hour ago

    The male presstitute has no idea what he is talking about. BT cotton lead to mass suicides in India. In no way are GMO’s helping poor people. You have to buy the seeds again and again from Monsanto of course along with it the fertilizers etc.

  • MessageOfTheKingdom2 2 hours ago

    This man is actually afraid that labeling will lead to a reduction of the consumption of GMO corn etc. if labeling goes into effect. He knows that the more people become aware of GMOs the ill effects that are not being reported by the MSMedia they will shun it. All of MSMedia personnel pay checks are linked to Big Pharma and companies like Monsanto. One produce sickness, the other maintains sickness. For a company to own a seed is too big a price for the world to pay. No GMO!!!

  • Mahyar ‘Mario’ Bordbar 2 hours ago

    Thanks. I’ll look that one up too.

    In the meantime you could look up Mark Lynas too (on his conversion from anti-GMO, not-anti-GMO), if you haven’t. It’s interesting.

  • Mahyar ‘Mario’ Bordbar 2 hours ago

    It wasn’t slammed by the “pro-GMO” scientists. It was slammed by the scientific community because it was a poorly done study. (The scientific community doesn’t consist of a dichotomy of “pro-GMO” and “anti-GMO”.)

    Did you read the criticism? Do you think the criticism is unwarranted? Do you think the study was a decent study?

    I am genuinely interested to find out the real incentive behind opposition to GMOs.

  • Ellen Powell 2 hours ago

    I did read them, and I also read the answers to the slams. Read those, too, before you flip this off.

  • RealiveProds 2 hours ago

    Another documentary you might like to watch is “Genetic Roulette” by the same author.

  • RealiveProds 2 hours ago

    I am in the UK too. I am an electronics engineer. Science engineering is not so corruptable because, ie if you claim to be able to do cold fusion, then it is easy for other scientists to repeat the experiment and verify. But with diet and health, testing often costs tens of millions, involving large scale studies, and the only organisations with the money to do it, are the very organisations who benefit from the results. And regarding GMOs, independent testing is restricted via patent law.

  • Sarah O’Neill 2 hours ago

    GM seeds, for example, started out in Indian markets as a way for the IMF to forgive India’s loans. Science has absolutely nothing to do with what’s going on. It’s purely for profit. This is scheme to make money and sell this idea that Monsanto wants to help other countries, which is not evident even in Monsanto’s own practices. Which also accounts for Hungary burning every GM field, Japan no longer accepting American GM exports, 5.5 million farmers suing Monsanto, etc etc. It’s simply scary.

  • RealiveProds 2 hours ago

    It can be found on Blip.tv

  • RealiveProds 2 hours ago

    The two most famous studies are the Seralini Study, and another by Prof Arpad Pusztai. As usual, any negative study is instantly discredited by corrupt agencies. To get the full story watch the documentary “Scientists Under Attack” which can be found on Blip.tv. I cannot post links on youtube comments.

  • gsamborska 2 hours ago

    Rachel, would you consider promoting just to ban GMOs? Labeling doesn’t solve the problem.

    This Monsanto guy was awful; one has to be 14 years old to withstand it gracefully.

  • Sarah O’Neill 2 hours ago

    It’s evident that O’Leary is, in fact, a bully and has been bought out. ‘Rachel, we ARE the lab rats.’ Talking to her as though she just doesn’t get it and as if that’s a good thing. I also hate this argument that apparently Monsanto wants to help 14 year old children in Asia. As if America has ever wanted to help other countries around the world.

  • Ellen Powell 2 hours ago

    This is the only long term study so far. “Long term toxicity of a Roundup herbicide and a Roundup-tolerant genetically modified maize” It was slammed by the pro-GMO scientists- but it’s the only one. They should do their own research and *prove* this is junk science. Don’t think they can pull it off, which is why I think they’re not doing any and accusing this group of scientists instead.

    I’ll check out that video. I’ve never seen it but it sounds interesting.

    I think I’d disagree with the second part of your comment (as a soon-to-be PhD student within science/engineering). I am in the UK though, so things might be different if you’re only talking about the US.

  • Mahyar ‘Mario’ Bordbar 2 hours ago

    Thanks. The first part of your comment was interesting. I will look it up.

    Obviously it deteriorated towards the end, but this is Youtube so I don’t expect any better.

  • Mahyar ‘Mario’ Bordbar 2 hours ago

    “blind faith in the Scientific Process” is an oxymoron.

    I actively spread the word about the ‘evils’ of the monetary system, Western capitalism, the brainwashing consumerist and tribalist culture, and profit-grabbing immoral corporations like Monsanto.

    I just happen to support evidence-based science at the same time.

    My position against the political side, doesn’t automatically lead to discrediting science and evidence (unlike many people on OUR side of the politics, unfortunately).

  • Ellen Powell 2 hours ago

    WOW! I hoped that she’s answer his accusation that she didn’t care about millions everywhere dying because they didn’t eat GMO food with the stats on Indian farmer suicide epidemic: 270,000 farmers since Monsanto entered the Indian seed market. Farmers get so far into debt, it’s the only way out. Debt doesn’t get passed to families when farmers die there. I hoped that she’d talk about Food Forests in drought areas that work out brilliantly- what Geoff Lawton + others are doing: permaculture

  • smithfix 2 hours ago

    Badgering a 14 year old, accusing her of being a ‘Lobbyist, Shill, all or nothing activist? Who is the shill here? “Qui Bono”, Who benefits? O’Leary exposes himself as the shill, a payed mouthpiece who got his pro-Monsanto butt handed to him.

  • RealiveProds 2 hours ago

    Look up the video “Scientists Under Attack”. I think you will find that the ONLY scientists who prosper in their career and receive the lucrative industry grants, are the ones who are the most corruptable.

  • smithfix 2 hours ago

    YouTube has, SUPRISE!, removed this! I will buy it now!

  • RealiveProds 2 hours ago

    Do you understand the concept of conflicts-of-interest?

    How can you say there is evidence for the safety of GMOs, when the testing is only performed by the companies who gain from the results?

    And when an independent study has shown the damage caused by GMO’s, the scientists who performed the study are instantly discredited by the government agencies, the same agencies that are run by industry executives.

    You seriously underestimate the power of money to corrupt.

  • Mahyar ‘Mario’ Bordbar 2 hours ago

    Okay. Send me a link to some decent scientific studies that shows the ‘dangers’ of GMOs.

    I’m open-minded and genuinely interested. So I’ll go with whatever the evidence shows.

  • callmeyang 3 hours ago

    Are you better informed or is that just your own assumptions, deductive reasoning or just blind faith in the Scientific Process?

    Companies like Monsanto are not there to do Science. They exist to make money! Maybe you should start questioning the monetary system and stop taking things as given. Nobody is better or smarter than anyone else. There are only equally valid perspectives. Unless we expose the obvious we can’t make any real change or progress

  • Jeff Willnotgivename 3 hours ago

    GMO, seeds a the property of the manufacturer. This is why monsanto has gone to courts even when the destructive cross over of seeds were blown into a farmers field. He, the farmer had to defend himself from a groundless accusation that he had stolen the seeds. Here’s the problem, he is a real farmer, he both plants for sale and for the next season seeds. This stands to reason that GMO is enriching monsanto and they will control the worlds food supply, this alone should raise questions.

  • callmeyang 3 hours ago

    Kevin thinks everybody else is stupid.

    GMO is not science. It’s a business!

  • Jeff Willnotgivename 3 hours ago

    Kevin, do you have any flexibility in your position? You obviously never studied the process, this is evident by your weak rhetorical comments.Rather then assuming she hasn’t or even hearing her answer, you continue to falsely accuse her of not having an open mind.

    Bottom line, science has failed in every way when it comes to playing God, they bring species of insects to control others only to fail too recognize they don’t have a natural predator to control the species introduced to a region.

    Did you know that glyphosate completely destroys the beneficial bacteria in your gut? This bacteria plays an important roll in healthy digestion. Kill it all off and you can no longer get the nutrients you need from *any* food. You’d happily sit there stuffing your face with this poison because you believe its harmless. And I wouldn’t try twice to stop you.

    I’d love to see those pay cheques. (I don’t deny that some exist, but it would be nice to see them anyway).

    Some scientists may be corrupt, but the scientific community works on the basis of scrutinizing studies by independent peer-review in order to weed out corruption and biases. It’s not perfect, but it’s our best tool.

    Just because results of a study happen to support the operations of a profit-grabbing monopolizing corporation, that shouldn’t discredit the science itself.

    the level of stupidity of this o leary dude is flabbergasting, he doesnt even udnerstand simple sentences from a 14 year ol

  • Jeff Willnotgivename 3 hours ago

    Someone should explain to Kevin, seeing is but a child, that the entire population can be fed with none GMO foods. As well if he’s so concerned about vitamins, send them some Flinstone vitamins, there fruity flavor will save there lives. I’m ashamed to see an adult who requires staff to write facts and his constant reading from his monitored notes. He was weak as were his arguments.

  • Mahyar ‘Mario’ Bordbar 3 hours ago

    I understand that. I was drawing a parallel between two different examples of the same naturalistic fallacy. Both examples are just as irrational and fallacious. (My point isn’t to DEFEND GMOs necessarily, but it is to counter the ridiculous claims against it.)

  • tapary 3 hours ago

    Of course humans should experiment with genetic modification! There’s nothing wrong with that. The problem is taking the experiments, declaring that the product is the same as the natural variety, and putting it in the majority of foods. One can be against the current implementation of GMOs without also being a luddite.

  • Mark Hopkins 3 hours ago

    Growing GMOs for the benefit of people who are starving in other countries is a guise for these companies to make money. O’Leary, If Monsanto was doing this for the people then why are they destroying the lives of farmers not using their seeds and accusing them of stealing their seeds? We are not starving in America so why grow GMOs here? Bunch of BS and you are a lobbyist for GMO companie

  • timogoosen 3 hours ago

    The real question is : Are you Kevin O’Leary not a lobbyist for GMO foods? He is a prick for hammering on this girl, she’s just 14 and he gives her a real hard time, even though she owns up.

  • 10000000milesforlove 3 hours ago

    I wouldn’t trust into GMO labelling even it’d became standard procedure. O’Leary, GMO roundups are poison to cells! GMO’s won’t save people, it’ll make them sick, damage cell production and eventually harm our DNA.

  • Kyle Obergfell 3 hours ago

    That asshole is a billionaire. If he really cared about kids dying in Africa.. wouldn’t it behoove him to maybe.. donate money? The more I learn about rich people, the more I want them to be exterminated. What kind of pig human being needs $4 billion?????

  • Erwin Alber 3 hours ago

    Great job Rachel! One more point you could have made is that thousands of Indian farmers have committed suicide after they committed themselves to growing Monsanto’s GMO seeds because they could not pay back the loans they had taken out to buy the seeds and fertilizers to grow them.

  • Erwin Alber 3 hours ago

    Also, I don’t agree that it’s fine to grow GMO crops as long as we have labelng because the GMO crops pollute GMO-free crops so that in the end ALL our crops will be polluted, making labeling completely redundant!

    If the definition of “capitalist” is dependent on a “free-market” that would mean an economic environment that supports competition. These type of “global corporations” are monopolies which do not believe in competition and “free-markets” therefore, they are not capitalist they are some kind of totalitarian agenda.

    Why would he, right after she has stated that yields are not higher, go on to say that yields are indeed higher? It is quite obvious that he is entering into the position of a conservative adult, trying to impose ‘open-mindedness’ while staying closed minded himself.

    Shielding GMO testing on the general public under the umbrella of ‘science’, is like asking people who are against torture if they are against interrogation.

    GMO is certainly not the only way to scientifically engineer new and better ways to produce and cultivate food.

    They haven’t actually modified most of our foods. What they have modified gets subsidized so heavily that they are ingredients in just about all processed foods that aren’t organic. I try to keep track of what is genetically modified and available for sale so I can be sure to buy organic for those items. Of course, our wheat has been contaminated so who know how much GMO we get anyway. Another good reason to avoid wheat.

  • hometownchico 8 hours ago

    Nothing was mentioned about the fact that Monsanto pushes for a patent on all GMO plant seeds. This way Monsanto would have a monopoly over farmers having to buy seeds from Monsanto and not being able to produce their own non-patent seedlings driving up the cost of producing food. So the argument of rice not having vitamin A overseas and causing all kinds of ills stays the same in those countries because the cost would be prohibitive to those countries who cannot afford the costly patented GMO.

    Speaking of “gut”, there is much evidence that pigs fed GMO grain develop holes in their intestine, and pig’s digestive system is similar to humans, so we can expect the same if we eat GM food.

    You are a fool. You have a flawed argument. Of course they would use GMO even if they don’t get higher yields (which, in fact, they don’t – which is why many farmers in India are killing themselves.) They would do it because they sell the seed (for each and every plant – no seed saving allowed), they sell the chemicals that go on the crops, they sue the hell out of organic farmers who’s crops get contaminated claiming they are infringing on their patents.

  • dainis michel 17 hours ago

    Unfortunately Rachel wasn’t able to come up with a good response to Kevin’s anti-science claim. A potential response to Kevin regarding the children who only eat rice, who go blind and possibly die is NOT to keep them only eating rice and sell them GMO rice and profit from them while casually observing their plight. The answer is to give them squash, carrot, leafy green etc. seeds and find something that works in their ecosystem that they can grow that gives them a healthy supply of vitamin A.

  • dainis michel 17 hours ago

    The root of Kevin’s argument comes from a parasitic perspective. Science can and could be applied to create healthier foods, but that’s not happening with many GMO’s. Dangerous, untested, and poisonous plant-like creations are sold disguised as the sustainable foods they once were. To grow these crops, you need to poison the environment. Instead of creating health abundance and prosperity, these seeds are funneling profits to their “creators” while causing death and endangering our species.

    For the sake of the video poster, for the sake of those involved in the debate, and for the sake of those reading comments, may I suggest that we return to the conversation about GMO’s? We have gotten way off topic.

  • ifreemantoo 22 hours ago

    Semantics is all. The fact that they are similar doesn’t help your argument. Now if you’re qualifying poisonous spiders or snakes then there are real differences. But the poisonous snakes of fascism, socialism, communism and even a constitutional republic all have poisonous bites, so does it really make any difference? Academically if you like to argue.

    I include a constitutional republic in the mix, because it bites like fascism. In the end if I’m bitten by a rattler or black window, I’m hurt.

    A good question. I suggest people treat each other as they would want to be treated or have their loved ones treated.

    Government and law in part is an attempt at controlling the mischief of people using people. Do you see a problem there. A constitutional republic that protected liberty for everyone is not a bad idea. But once you get people to administer government…I just don’t have a clear answer.

  • Mike Johnson 22 hours ago

    You are mistaken. Kevin’s argument for the poorer people consists of claiming that without GMO’s, millions of people will die. Rachel is correct in responding that GMO crops do not produce any higher yields, while they potentially endanger people and the environment. If GMO’s are meant to feed poorer people, why is it forced on all of us and done so without labeling? She says people can continue experimentation, but label it. There is already affordable organic and non GMO foods.

This anti-GMO thing is pure ignorance.

His words do sound intelligent though.

  • ifreemantoo 23 hours ago

    I hate to give the professor his due, but from a distance of only 5 feet there is no real difference between fascism, socialism and communism as practiced. Isn’t Communist Korea that in name only?

    Check out Facism in Wikipedia. The distinctions are like trying to classify the differences of spiders. They’re still spiders. In fact if you can look at the definition of fascism compared to a so-called free uS of A republic, it certainly seems to define fascism as practiced.

    That’s about it. The 14 year old in reality bullied Kevin right from the very challenge. She put Kevin in a damned if you do and damned if you don’t scenario. I don’t know that’s how she thought about it, but that’s what happened.

    I agree 100% with David Curiel. This young lady, through her successful debate with Kevin, showed that GMO science does NOTHING to help eradicate starvation. GMO food does not have higher yields, which is one of it’s selling points. In addition, it is a risk to EVERYONE on the planet, because the science is so potentially dangerous to our health, the environment, and even our entire ecosystem. YOU are the one who is willing to risk the health of EVERYONE with your uneducated view.

    What are you talking about? Food labeling IS part of the discussion! O’Leary smacked himself down by continually referring to starving children and claiming that GMO’s MIGHT help. Her rebuttal was that GMO’s don’t yield more food, (so why support it). Really, you need to pay more attention!

    She owned the debate by knowing the information, unlike Kevin!She focused on our right to know and labeling, and she did address Kevin’s reference to the less fortunate. Her response was that GMO foods do NOT have higher yields, (which brings into question it’s merit). In North America, we aren’t “less fortunate” and have no need for GMO’s, so why is it forced on us without labeling? She also said she didn’t necessarily oppose further testing, but insisted we should have labeling.

  • leolauzon 1 day ago

    That’s not what she said. She said she is opened to science, but want them to test it more and label it. O’leary avoided her points to make her say something she wasn’t debating, and you fell for it. I wish she was a more experienced debater, because O’Leary had absolutely nothing. We need more testing and labeling : THE END.

    The idea that people who die from malnutrition benefit from GMOs is a myth. Besides, even if there was some short-term benefit, GMOs are killing eco-systems. There won’t be food left to grow in another 50 years. Their chemicals are killing bees. Once the bees are gone, we are gone. A huge percentage of the world food supply relies on the pollination from bees. And, they are disappearing because of Monsanto. GMOs will leave the whole world hungry.

  • kwyjibo33 1 day ago

    They keep saying that they are modifying foods ‘for the benefit of all human beings’, but it is COMPLETE nonsense. They are doing it ONLY for the benefit of the company and their stock holders. That’s it. The idea that it’s helping people everywhere is a myth. The world spends $2.5 Trillion per year on War. If they fought hunger in the same way there would be NO hungry people on earth. GMOs destroy eco-systems. They cause more problems than they (supposedly) solve.

  • Mike Johnson 1 day ago

    O’Leary kept focusing on third world countries and presenting it like either you allow GMO’s or millions of people will die of starvation. If the purpose of GMO’s is to feed third world countries, why is it fed to people who are not in danger of starving? Why test on everyone on the planet and endanger worldwide ecosystems? Why not test it only in certain controlled environments, on only those who risk death without this experimental food, at least until it is proven safe?

  • Mike Johnson 1 day ago

    How is it a moot point? It shows another example how GMO crops are NOT superior to non-GMO. “Junk science” = If you don’t agree with the finding it is “junk science”. Animal testing does indicate accelerated aging. But there aren’t long term studies on humans. Many generations of rats can be tested and results can be studied. The first GMO food was introduced in 1994. There has not been enough time to study the same generational affects. Why would someone make up results when they study this???

    O’Leary appears to be a one sided GMO puppet in this interview. How many times he suggests that Rachel is a proponent of a “death sentence” for people less fortunate to be in developed nations. We are genetically unmodified animals ourselves and are tied to the ecosystem of our local regions. So I think her position that we should eat natural and unmodified food is sound. But what she advocates is study and labelling, again, sound logic.

  • DCWatchdog 1 day ago

    Whats funny is having the GMOs might be a death sentence. How many people have gotten cancers from it, nobody knows.

Labelling should be law in Canada. Period. If GMO companies are so proud of their products, why are they against letting everyone know which ones are theirs?

    She kept dodging every main question she was asked. This chick is a fraud that knows absolutely nothing.

  • bballsuns247 2 days ago

    Shut up poi little lib. If she didn’t want to get called out, then don’t do a debate. You’re a complete beta and what’s wrong with our country. People like you are as soft as Charmain. Get lost.

    Why are they afraid that we might find out what they are forcing down our throats? Why would we eat food that kills insects? Why would they lie to us consumers? How many billions of dollars do you need to survive Kevin?

  • Raine C Arimitsu 2 days ago

    did someone inform kevin that crops grown with experimental chemicals infiltrate our soil and ruin it for future use destroying the future of crops and food as a whole. come on kevin, what hole do you live in? use your influence on television to do something responsible on this matter.

  • Raine C Arimitsu 2 days ago

    kevin o’leary, growing crops that are immune to insects. if munching on a crop kills an insect, what will it do to you and i? please get off of the air with ignorant comments like that. kevin, if your so concerned about access to food, or lack o,f around the world then you become an activist for getting our excess and abundance in the US out to other parts of the world. you start it, i’ll get on board.

    Dance Kevin dance,,,,, “want to use you” what a puppet!!! put to shame by a kid!

    Kevin, you disgust me. You have no shame in calling out a 14 year old as if she’s a lobbyist you are being payed to fight against. Shame on you

  • DCWatchdog 2 days ago

    That doesn’t make any sense at all? How can you hit the nail on the head while you are straw manning someone else instead of explaining why GMO is good. Using the hunger argument isn’t a good one. Honestly I think O’Leary is the shill and he’s full of shit. I would have probably slapped him upside the head if he called my daughter a shill lol

  • olddaddy56 2 days ago

    I think what he was doing was to try to draw her out beyond just parroting all the claims of the anti-GMO crowd. I’m not sure the shill comment was justified, particularly to a 14-year-old, but it seemed to me that he was trying to determine how much of her opinions were based on thinking for herself as opposed to simply repeating the IRT-formulated liturgy.

  • DCWatchdog 2 days ago

    Not sure what IRT-formulated is but I understand what you mean. I don’t think its time for politics or “drawing someone out” when it comes to GMO. Its a HUGE safety concern for a lot of us and honestly I think Monsanto and others should be shut down, jailed, and more for experimenting on us without our approval. She’s simply not just sharing opinions, she was also sharing facts.

    I think more people are becoming aware of the games that people in politics play and time is running out for that.

  • DCWatchdog 2 days ago

    He is trying to bait her into that so he can say she’s a shill. He’s the one that sounds like the shill. Someone should have slapped him for telling a little girl that she’s a shill.

    Dear Rachel, The GMO problem is systemic of all branches of most modern governments. This is called Crony Capitalism, (where corporations actually make our laws) and Kevin O’Leary is an awesome voice against this problem. A true freedom fighter that you’ll recognize when you study economics in depth. I suggest you stay in touch with Kevin and don’t think too harshly about him and his views. With those critical thinking skills you have displayed, you’ll be his allies one day for sure.

    she said research thats what some of these people dont do, there just bought and paid for to be complete clowns

  • ArtByAir 2 days ago

    I only wish her response to his asshole question about her being “OK” about handing a “death sentence” to children less fortunate than she is, who “need” genetically modified food in order to fortify it… to “SAVE their lives”…. I wish she said “Are you OK with the millions of people and animals who are sickened, mutated, and killed by Monsanto’s chemicals? Are you OK with bees going extinct? Are you OK with terminator genetics making the nature made organism extinct?”

  • Dylan Holdren 2 days ago

    Kevin used such a set up generic argument to attempt to shoot her down. Even if gmos are180% safe for human consumption the environmental fallout is evident ie the millions of bee deaths and chemical pollution in rivers which Kevin never even addressed he stayed on humanity and only humanity but if there are no bees there is no humanity so why say gmos are a solution to anything. We produce enough food already to feed the world but a lot is wasted. Organic natural hybrids are safely sustainable.

    Old man, you are a GMO shill, yes? Considering the fact that most US consumers unknowingly eat GMOs, by default they’re part of the pro-GMO movement. You’re either a farmer, equipment salesman or invested in the GMO outcome. Paid to disclose what the GMO industry has failed to do: inform consumers? Go back to sleep.

  • olddaddy56 2 days ago

    You can call me a shill if you like, but I have no financial investment in GMO outcome. My interest is just education about food. Having seen the science behind both sides of the debate, I simply chose the side which I believe has the clear scientific consensus. Unlike pro-GMO shills, however, I believe products containing ingredients derived from GMO’s should be labeled, if it’s done in an appropriate way. Consumers should have the choice. I just want it to be an educated choice.

    I’ve watched this again & again & again…and if I had been in that place, it would’ve been hard for me to sit still & continue without choking that guy.

  • likmahchoda 2 days ago

    I’m alarmed at how few views this clip has received.

    The objective of chem trails, fluoridation, GMO foods and mandatory vaccinations is to deliberately kill off the human population. The elite have planned this for over a hundred years. Watch the stock market. Read the protocols for the learned elders of zion. Learn about Henry Kissinger and David Rockefeller. This takeover has been in the works for generations and their plans are almost complete. The fiat system will fail, then comes NWO.

    Reptilian fascist O’Leary deserves to spend rest of his life on some other planet. Leave earth humans alone.
