Are They Doing This Deliberately?
Researchers have recently started putting human genes into rice (seen via debunkers). They must be doing this deliberately in order to attract the “right” type of opposition. If they picked any other gene source, they would get opposition on the left side of the political spectrum but not on the right. I'm reminded of a comment I saw a few years ago:
Many on the political left also oppose cloning, including U.S. Senator Tom Daschle, several Democratic lobbying groups, and the European Union. While E.U. officials admit that genetically modified children do not scare them as much as genetically modified food, they argue that hordes of clone babies are just the start of a slippery slope which might eventually lead to high-yield strains of wheat.Meanwhile, this way the scientists can get condemned by conservatives and still get to think of themselves as “progressive.”
