IDIOCY: Two university profs claim that ‘Farmer’s markets’ are harbingers of WHITE racism

IDIOCY: Two university profs claim that “Farmer’s markets” are harbingers of WHITE racism:

There are photos of former first lady Michelle Obama shopping at one of them. Throughout the country, depending on the region, many vendors are minorities at them.

But to hear a couple of lunatic professors from San Diego State University tell it, farmer’s markets are inherently racist because they are strictly the construct and domain of white people.

Seriously. You can’t make this stuff up, folks, though it’s a shame that someone did anyway.

As reported by the Washington Times, Profs. Pascale Joassart-Marcelli and Fernando J. Bosco write in a new book that farmer’s markets in urban environments are “white spaces” that are responsible for…oppression.

Monsanto now offering CASH to farmers if they will use its toxic “dicamba” agricultural chemical

Monsanto now offering CASH to farmers if they will use its toxic “dicamba” agricultural chemical:

The agri giant Monsanto, commonly known as the world’s most evil corporation, is now offering farmers cash in a desperate bid to distribute its XtendiMax with VaporGrip dicamba-based weed killer product. Reuters is reporting that Monsanto will be offering farmers refunds of over half the cost of the product in 2018, if they can prove that it was sprayed on soybeans known as Xtend, which have been specially engineered by the company to resist the toxic chemical.

These incentives are being offered even as the country is facing an agricultural crisis caused by dicamba-based products which evaporated and drifted away after being sprayed on crops.

Agenda 21? California Ranchers Revolt After State Sets Aside 2 Million Acres For A Frog

California Ranchers Revolt After State Sets Aside 2 Million Acres For A Frog:

California is known for it’s wacky legislation.  After all, it is the state where Governor Jerry Brown recently signed a law specifically intended to regulate cow flatulence…no, really (see: Here Are Some Of The Ridiculous New State Laws That Will Take Effect January 1st – Happy New Year!).

As such, it will probably come as no surprise that the state recently set aside nearly 2 million acres (for those who have difficulty conceptualizing what 2 million acres looks like, it’s roughly 3x the size of Rhode Island) in order to protect a frog, the Sierra Nevada yellow-legged frog to be exact.

And while many will just dismiss this as the latest example of a far-leftist government gone mad, a group of California farmers and ranchers, who could very well be regulated out of business by this latest California law, are fighting back and have sued the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  More from The Sacramento Bee:

Farm feud: Monsanto and its clients under fire for damaging crops

Farm feud: Monsanto and its clients under fire for damaging crops:

Farmers in Arkansas, Tennessee and southern Missouri are angry at their neighbors – and agrochemical giant Monsanto – over a new weed-killer that has ravaged 200,000 acres of soybean fields. The herbicide is used to treat Monsanto’s new strand of soy.

As controversies mount over its glyphosate-based herbicide, also known as Roundup, the Missouri-based Monsanto has rolled out a new soybean seed intended to be resistant to another weed-killer, known as dicamba. While the “Roundup Ready 2 Xtend” soy has been approved for planting in 2016, US federal regulators have yet to approve the use of dicamba.

Farmers who bought Monsanto’s seeds have taken to spraying their crops with dicamba obtained from other vendors – which is prone to drifting into neighboring fields, severely damaging the non-Xtend crops. Officials across the three states cite a “rough figure” of 200,000 acres affected by the drift, Delta Farm Press reported.

Farmers Diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Sue Roundup’s Monsanto:

By AnonWatcher

Monsanto are being sued by four Nebraskan farmers, who have developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, one of the cancers associated with the use of glyphosate – a key ingredient to Roundup.

The farmers, along with an agronomist, are suing the agricultural giant for what they say is false information about the safety of Roundup use and a deliberate misleading of Monsanto’s consumers.

Farmers Say Monsanto’s Roundup Gave Them Cancer

Farmers Say Monsanto’s Roundup Gave Them Cancer:

LINCOLN, Neb. — Despite Monsanto’s claim that its Roundup weed-killer is “safe enough to drink,” four Nebraska farmers say the widely used herbicide gave them non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer classifies glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic to humans” but Monsanto has promoted Roundup as “safe enough to drink,” the farmers say in their federal lawsuit.

“Roundup is used by Nebraskans raising everything from grain to grass and tulips to trees. Nothing on the label alerts users to health risks,” their attorney David Domina said in an interview. “Nebraskans deserve the benefit of the (World Health Organization) research, and protection against unknown exposure.”
