Fear/Smear tactics re-deployed against Coalition of Immokalee Workers

Coalition of Immokalee Workers

…to her credit, Florida’s Attorney General saw through the cheap public relations trick and declined to investigate a claim that funds were being diverted by an organization that never even comes into contact with the funds in question. Then the Ft. Myers News-Press ran an article taking a closer look at Worker Center Watch and dug into their own archives to discover an almost uncanny parallel between Williams’ claims and those of a Burger King executive caught red-handed by the paper in 2008 spreading lies about the CIW on internet chat forums as well.

Florida A.G. Pam Bondi’s just saying “no” to investigating a patently obvious, widely pre-publicized false claim against the Coalition of Immokalee Workers wasn’t a hardline stance against false complaints.

It left the door open for more.

The linked article contains an incredibly intricate tale of disinformation and deceit that boils down to a simple certainty – you don’t have to be at all powerful to come under concerted attack by the all-too powerful.

All an individual or an organization has to do is be persistent in the pursuit of any kind of fairness and those that will do anything for a buck will be there to bedevil you, bringing a Communist flag (no kidding; check the article) if they think it’ll help them continue to oppress for success.

The Coalition of Immokalee Workers would have no need to exist if state legislatures didn’t ignore agricultural slavery on behalf of the restaurant and grocery industries.

It’ll remain that simple no matter how many industry-backed fear/smear disinformation campaigns are mounted, and however many lazy attorney generals ignore the criminal nature of requests to legitimize fear/smear campaigns with “investigations.”
