An angry, manure smelling mob from the Church of the Organic, citronella torches ablaze and artisanal pitchforks held aloft, stormed the production studios of TV’s Dr Oz after it was revealed he wrote an article in the current issue of Time Magazine saying conventional foods, like frozen peas and carrots, were A-OK by him.
Frightened production employees cowered under desks as the horde rampaged through the studios in search of Oz. Witnesses said the throng overturned desks and chairs demanding the surrender of the heretical Oz. Oz wasn’t on the premises and was said to be in hiding in a secure safe house provided by Birdseye.
I don’t have a subscription to Time, so I wasn’t able to access the actual article on their site, but I did manage did get what I think is his article from another site. In it he utters the heretical notion that foodies are “snobs” and “you don’t need to eat like the 1% to eat healthily.” He says that regular food is as healthy as organic. But his most egregious crime was basically saying, organic food isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
Organic church member and writer for Nation of Change and Natural Society, Anthony Gucciardi takes the Oz to task. He and others somehow manage to come to the conclusion that due to his advocacy of conventional food, that makes him a shill for GMO food even though Oz never once mentions GMOs in his article. He also quotes the anti-vax and all around health lunatic, Mike “GMOs are the new Zyklon B” Adams as a source.
(Side note: I have my problems with Gucciardi which I will deal with in an upcoming post. I have never seen any so-called journalist write such consistently misleading and dishonest articles.)
The faithful weighed in on the comment board and savaged him, their former Pope of Nonsense. Here are some examples of what they’re saying :
Sounds too much like he has downed the Kool-Aid and is now puking it back at his credulous audience. Does he have no reservations about GMO at ALL?
Dr. Oz needs to go hide behind the curtain. He’s drinking the kool-aid of Monsanto and their ilk…
He completely lost his credibility. I wonder how much Monsanto paid him for that? He is supposed to check the research before making blind claims like that. What a hypocrite! He sold his soul.
He has sold out. They probably threatened to take him off of the air.
Well, let me be the first one to welcome Dr. Oz to our family of Monsanto shills.
