Submit Tweets to TROLL Monsanto for 24 hours!

I need your help with something very easy and fun!

Twitter handle: @mlsurvivalist
Mission: to #trollMonsanto for 24 hours
When: Monday, August 17th, 2015

What We’re Doing

We have a bit of a cheeky blog where we like to troll (technical term for cyberpester/-taunt) @MonsantoCo once in a while on Twitter and go after Monsanto apologists that shill for them in YouTube comments. I’ll be doing a simple, but hopefully effective campaign where I all-out troll Monsanto for 24 hours on Twitter. The hashtag will be #trollMonsanto, something I coined (I think).

Here are some of my master-tweetses (usually in reply to one of their tweets):

How You Can Help

I’m clever (maybe), but not necessarily clever enough to cover 24 hours of on-point, hard-hitting tweets that could potentially annoy Monsanto, so I need your help! These will definitely raise awareness and improve morale in our fight against this evil corporation.

I would love to take submissions here (in comments) for your best troll Monsanto tweets. Please leave your Twitter handle with your tweet, and I will broadcast it on the big day. If you want your handle on the tweet, make sure it fits (140 characters or less) with the hashtag #trollMonsanto and their handle @MonsantoCo.

The Details

This should leave you with a good 114 characters to work with. I will even edit a tweet to a workable amount of characters if you don’t feel like counting. Mild swearing allowed. No f-bombs or s-bombs, and obviously no racism/sexism (a given).

Do your worst!

  1. Hey guys, perhaps you should first get an introduction to understanding the calender… or perhaps your activist zeal just got the better of you. Anyways: Anyone who has to resort to using “shill” as an argument should reconsider activism. It’ just too easy to satirize.

    • No no wait, I have an even better answer for you:

      I suppose I should just get out of the way of professionals like Stephen Colbert and John Stewart who professionally lampoon conservatives ALL DAY LONG, completely dictating the argument for people who don’t diversify their source of news in lieu of their more entertaining presentation.

      You’d like that, wouldn’t you? Sorry, I won’t comply to your funded shaming. We need to take the satire for the counterargument up a notch. Monsanto sucks.

      • Do you know what intelligent people call a comment like yours? Ad hominem… which incidently is a logical fallacy. You should really start learning some philosophy before openly showcasing your idiocy on a website.

        You made a lot of claims here, but you fail to provide any evidence. Typical ideology driven kid that doesn’t understand how science works…. back to school with you!

        • There’s a lot of angles you can take when an evil corporation is perpetrating destruction. One of them is flat-out political protest, another is satire, another is mobilizing people. I’m trying to do these things. I don’t really need to sit and argue the science when in my personal experience, I’ve been harmed by Monsanto (got sick from overconsumption of GM corn).

          I believe you’re using the tactic of diversion, which is a logical fallacy as well. I am not discussing the scientific ins & outs of whether their food is harmful. This is already assumed. Not to mention the assumption that they have a negative impact on the nation, individual farmers, third-world countries, and local economies. They pretty much crap all over everyone. This is the fuel for my anger and thus my trolling. Why does that upset you so much, unless you are being paid by them?

          • I feel like you’re trolling everyone who visits this site. You don’t need to argue science since you once got sick? You don’t need to discuss science because your invalid point is assumed? Bravo, sir

          • bahahahahaha, fuck you anti biotech luddites are pathetic, now if you could just link data showing gm crops are harmful

  2. Michael,

    Really, I don’t understand why the shills come out first. It is devastating to me. Could somebody please actually submit a tweet that’s anti-Monsanto? I know you’re out there, people!

    • could you just justify why you want to harass and bully me after all i have done is ask you and your ilk to justify yourselves

    • Rob,
      Why don’t you answer his questions rather than avoiding them and simply calling him a shill? Is it because there are no good answers for them?
      I figured as much.

      • Sarah,

        I answered his question just fine. We are going forward with this effort with the assumption that Monsanto and GMOs are bad. Some of it will include the myriad independent studies that show the negative effect on health and the environment, but in general, this is A PROTEST! If a company is hurting people with their products and not being held accountable because of corruption, generally you either protest or satirize. Can’t you understand that you poor soul?!

        Who ARE you people? Is there anybody out there who is actually anti-Monsanto/anti-GMO anymore? I’m drowning in shills! These people seriously must be paid to just troll around and comment. It’s freaking insane!

        And if you’re not paid, what are you accomplishing? There is no explanation for your activism. Am I seriously supposed to believe these people are more active than an anti-GMO activist?

        • Actually Rob, you didn’t answer any of his questions you simply called him a shill and asked how old he is. Pretty sure neither of those were answers to the questions he posed.
          Who am I? I am a consumer with a family to feed that makes decisions based on evidence and rational thought. From this discussion there seems to be no reason to back any part of your movement. Sorry if I won’t join your “protest” and slander a company on ASSUMPTIONS that Monsanto and GMOs are bad. If you can show me real, unbiased, scientifically sound evidence that shows GMOs to be hurting people while the company is not held accountable I will gladly join your movement.
          It seems to me that the anti-GMO movement is slowing and I am happy for that. Maybe it’s because people are finally beginning to educate themselves from credible sources rather than Google University and silly blogs written from someone who thinks “academics are overrated” and whose only academic achievement is being valedictorian of a high school class. Seems like a pretty sound decision to me.

          • This was my response to his questions. I guess I have to repeat it for you because you didn’t (or can’t) read:

            “We are going forward with this effort with the assumption that Monsanto and GMOs are bad. Some of it will include the myriad independent studies that show the negative effect on health and the environment, but in general, this is A PROTEST! If a company is hurting people with their products and not being held accountable because of corruption, generally you either protest or satirize. Can’t you understand that you poor soul?”

            Just so you know, an “answer” to someone’s taunts is not answering every single specific question he asks as a taunt. You simply respond to them. Perhaps this is too abstract for a nothing like you to understand.

          • This was one of my replies to Michael (now deleted because I don’t allow profanity), which I have now twice summed up for you:

            “There’s a lot of angles you can take when an evil corporation is perpetrating destruction. One of them is flat-out political protest, another is satire, another is mobilizing people. I’m trying to do these things. I don’t really need to sit and argue the science when in my personal experience, I’ve been harmed by Monsanto (got sick from overconsumption of GM corn).

            I believe you’re using the tactic of diversion, which is a logical fallacy as well. I am not discussing the scientific ins & outs of whether their food is harmful.

They pretty much crap all over everyone. This is the fuel for my anger and thus my trolling. Why does that upset you so much, unless you are being paid by them?”

            This addresses his taunts and his accusations. You don’t see him responding anymore, now do you? Perhaps he’s satisfied with my response. You don’t need to speak for people. Oh yeah, you’re just doing it to be annoying and contrary. That’s because you’re a loser with nothing better to do than go after small-time protesters who are trying to get something started and get the word out. Wow, I must be so threatening to Monsanto. Get off my page, shill! Nice picture you painted of your fake family that you supposedly feed. I’d love to see your Gettyimages family photo.

  3. Sarah,

    Michael said:
    “BT toxins punctures intestines”
    Do you have any evidence for anything you said there? Or are you one of those morons who still don’t understand how to acquire and evaluate evidence? Do you even know what [expletive deleted] toxic means?
    Why is it that only uneducated idiots like the author of this complain about GMOs while NEVER EVER EVER providing any evidence to support it? Maybe because you’re just a stupid propaganda kid who can’t do anything other than screaming and kicking, because you don’t like the answers we get from science?”

    These are not questions. These are taunts. You don’t obviously know how to use your brain and understand the essence of a conversation. Either that, or you’re just piling on in his childish taunt. You can feed your family toxic GMO food all you want. I don’t care. I didn’t ask your opinion. I wouldn’t expect someone who is being paid by Monsanto to do anything other than troll people’s earnest attempts at spreading the word about healthy eating. P.S. You’re lame.

  4. Jesus, so many comments on one blog entry. So many shills so little time.

    You want the research straight from the horses mouth?

    Let me ask you a question even you shills can understand. Where the hell are the human studies? I guess people consuming GMO foods off and on for the past 25+ years are enough. Fair enough. But for everything else you cry for double blind placebo controlled studies, why the hell not GMO food safety?

    Medications have to go through human testing, why the hell do not food additives and modified food we consume?

    • lol keep displaying anti gmoers have no clue about how scientific investigation works and how ethics are supposed to control studies

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genetically_modified_food_controversies#Human_studies

      Human studies
      While some groups and individuals have called for more human testing of GM food,[169] multiple obstacles complicate such studies. The General Accounting Office (in a review of FDA procedures requested by Congress) and a working group of the Food and Agricultural and World Health organizations both said that long-term human studies of the effect of GM food are not feasible. The reasons included lack of a plausible hypothesis to test, lack of knowledge about the potential long-term effects of conventional foods, variability in the ways humans react to foods and that epidemiological studies were unlikely to differentiate modified from conventional foods, which come with their own suite of unhealthy characteristics.[170][171]
      Additionally, ethical concerns guide human subject research. These mandate that each tested intervention must have a potential benefit for the human subjects, such as treatment for a disease or nutritional benefit (ruling out, e.g., human toxicity testing).[172] Kimber claimed that the “ethical and technical constraints of conducting human trials, and the necessity of doing so, is a subject that requires considerable attention.”[173] Food with nutritional benefits may escape this objection. E.g., GM rice has been tested for nutritional benefits, namely, increased levels of Vitamin A.[174][175][176]
      Controversial studies

      • This guy gets paid to do this, obviously. He never stops! He’ll go on all day long if you keep talking to him. He’s very unsophisticated, swears, and has terrible grammar as well. Look on EVERY YouTube video that has anything to do with anti-GM science, and he is there trolling. It’s absolutely incredible.

        • that’s right i’m everywhere challenging your anti science ideologies, no justify them. or keep calling me a shill, and making pointless distractions from the science. it only shows how pathetic you need to be to buy into and defend your positions
