Because that’s the way to understand ag policy, according to Mother Jones.
Philpott used to call himself a farmer. Now he calls himself a journalist. Actually he’s neither, and won’t admit he’s just another activist.
In this article, he congratulates himself on getting a crowd reaction at a conference. There’s usually a couple of people like him at any conference, unsure of what they want to call themselves, but all too glad to take time during Q&A to tell so many outright lies in two minutes that the audience is flabbergasted that it could be done, much less with a straight face.
The remarkable thing is that Philpott knows, literally and completely, that what he says about modern agriculture is false. He isn’t a confused journalist who’s just reading off a whack-job press release.
Low as Mother Jones standards are, they probably carried this article because they couldn’t sell the space for advertising.
This is what you get when all you teach in school is self-esteem. Philpott is a gnat.
There is only one set of facts. Doesn’t stop leftards from making stuff up. I wonder how she explains educated US and other agribusinesses wasting money on GMO if it doesn’t deliver anything??
What I don’t understand is that he seems to be bragging about going to a conference and insulting his hosts. No progress was made. No intelligent debate was met. In fact, he goes straight from his verbal assault to complaining about filet minion. What is with this?
Ben, they view going to a conference and insulting the hosts as a self-justifying noble act which they call ‘speaking truth to power’. Sort of like breaking windows and burning cars, but without the risk of jail time.
