See if the GMO have been introduced to society, then we had a debate and anyone could freely decide to make the research and either eat them or not based on their own judgement, then we would have all these people promoting GMO so their market share increases and we would be saying positive things about them to overcome the fears.
But they were forced on everyone, we cannot even make the choice, the company behind them is just plain evil by almost any moral standards so... the reaction is exactly the opposite. We will keep bashing them and lobby for laws that outright prevent their introduction, until this changes and people won't be forced. You should know this by now.
Almost anything in society is opposed by maybe a 1-5% minority, which is extremely vocal, but will shut up if given a choice to avoid what they oppose.
