    Call Fidelity, Vanguard and State Street and tell them you’ll never buy
    stock because we know about Monsanto’s plan to replace nature and not just
    seeds. They’ve released Genetically Modified (GM) mosquitoes in 3
    countries, GM salmon, pigs, plants, growth hormone injected in the cows–
    everything.

    No wonder Monsanto is the MOST HATED corporation on earth. But what you
    don’t know is about the technology to reverse the damage you’ve done AFTER
    we get rid of all you rotten, evil, incarnated Schutzstaffels.

    Corporate Zionist-Jews. They all are Zionist-Jews. They all work for
    ruthless Zionist-corporates. I am suppose to trust Zionist-Jews? Hell no, I
    will not trust ruthless-Godless-soulless Congress-Jews! Zionist-Jews have
    enslaved our humanity, animals & our earth. Christians need to read their
    own Bible, just to see who have enslaved Christians & our humanity. Mr.
    Adams, how can we trust the ruthless, soulless, Godless Gog & Magog
    Monsanto-Jews, we can’t? We have trusted them & we are poisoned with
    Monsanto sickening foods. Damn American Jew Congress know that American
    people suffer from health problems & cancer, did they do anything, hell no?
    God(Allah) has warned our innocent mankind about ruthless & Godless Gog &
    Magog!
