AS IOWANS DEMS DISCOVER, TO KNOW HILLARY IS TO LOATHE HER
Iowa, a farming state, voters have turned on Clinton as they’ve gotten to know her. As food giant Campbell’s Soup just agreed to label it’s products with GMOS because we’re concerned about what’s in it, Iowans are realizing that Hillary would back corporations, not consumers or farmers. Perhaps Iowans are especially suspicious because they grow a lot of corn there–which Monsanto copyrighted. Yes, copyrighted an actual seed and they go around inspecting crops because it’s now illegal to grow any other kind. France, Scotland, Hungry, Germany, Greece and Latvia have banned Monsanto’s GMO corn.
WASHPO: Hillary Rodham Clinton’s ties to agribusiness giant Monsanto, and her advocacy for the industry’s genetically modified crops, have environmentalists in Iowa calling her “Bride of Frankenfood” — putting yet another wrinkle in her presidential campaign’s courtship of liberal activists who are crucial to winning the state’s Democratic caucuses.
The backlash against Mrs. Clinton for her support of genetically modified organisms (GMO), which dominate the corn and soybean crops at the heart of Iowa’s economy, manifested itself at a recent meeting of the Tri-County Democrats, where members gauged support for the former secretary of state.
“I was surprised, because these women were really pushing for Hillary until they found out about the Monsanto connection, and then they dropped her like a hot potato,” said James Berge, Democratic Party chairman for Worth County, Iowa.
“It’s quite a big issue,” he said. “There’s people who are just wild about all the use of GMOs.”
