This is an empire playing to its populists; the uneducated masses who will swarm around media-savvy issues such as this while ignoring the important things that affect their actual lives and country.

In such a time that we are all facing in the West, and especially in the US, the US's priority is to sign an act to make "animal crushing" videos illegal? Is it not common sense that animal crushing is wrong and should not be supported? Child pornography is wrong and illegal, yet it continues because nothing is being done about how people are raised and influenced.

I used to wonder why most mainstream Western news, on every single night, would air routine crap about pandas or polar bears being born in a zoo (right after a news report about things like school shootings or dead hookers, etc). It's because sheeple would prefer to block out reality and obsess with happy news. This "animal crushing" act is the US government trying to gain popularity among the American masses who would easily fall for this stuff as legitimate political action on a national level (especially when "animal crushing" has nothing to do with national politics).

And isn't it interesting how there's a lot of people who haven't even heard of "animal crushing" before this? I've never heard of it, and I've seen a lot of crazy sh!t on the internet. But you can be damn sure that a lot of people know about it now, and it's probably going to explode in obscene popularity.

EDIT:

Danbones- Now that they are illegal
they will get a value totally out out of preportion to what they are worth
and now it will be worthwhile to make them!
( prohibition made the gangsters..and indirectly JFK)
And it will be now worthwhile to have a SWAT team bureaucracy to enforce the law
and
now we have a reason to search everyones' computer
in case naked wiki leaks is downloading copywrited squishing rabitts


You're spot on, dude.

Iti would seem like commong sense to me, but you know, some people lack common sense altogether, so we have to have a laws for those with none.....

While I will say that I never heard of crush videos until this year, that wasn't the case for my kids, who have told me they have seen these videos many times. It turned their stomachs and got them upset. They did report those people and those videos were taken down off the sites they were posted on, so I would say that there is human decency in the majority of people who either saw the videos as a violation of their terms of service or a violation of what is morally/ethically/spiritually acceptable? So yeah, there is a risk this could catch on, or there is a chance that it won't because it's just not okay for anyone to be doing this. Time will tell.....

Thank you for your comment. I can't understand how anyone could come to any other conclusion after witnessing the video, but apparently there are some it just doesn't bother. You sound like you have a good heart!!!

What about the documentation of legal acts such as whaling, seal clubbing, dolphin killing.

These things are legal in some countries. Will this effect the efforts of organisations such as Sea shepard to try to curb these kinds of activities ?

The wording of this law states that there must be intentional harm or torture coupled with obscenity (sexual) to be considered a crush video. I posted a link to the actual bill somewhere on this thread (its HR5566 if you want to do a search on it). The activities you are mentioning I doubt would be covered, as clubbing would be consided crushing, but there has to be some kind of sexual fetish involved in the filming. Whales and dolphins are larger water animals and protection for them would not be included in this law, as the bills states "small animals", interpreted as domestic animals.

Other countries have activists that will use this new law in our country as a precedence to strengthen the support and legislation in their own countries, from what I am hearing.

This is a great organization that worked tirelesly to get this law reinstated here in the US when it was overturned by the supreme court. They are now going for a worldwide push to get this banned in other countries. They don't have any upsetting pics on their main page. Have a look if you are interested....

What does this have to do with videos of animals being crushed (or killed in general) just for fun? You don't club a seal to get your rocks off, you do it for food and fur; and people don't videotape a seal getting clubbed to get off on it.

It still amazes me that this was a law once and our trusted supreme court overturned it.
there must have been some sick twisted mind in the court that was angered they couldn't have what they wanted any more.
Also, sick sadistic people that do $hit like this should end up with the same fate.
Really gives plausability to the movie "Hostile"
if people are really willing to do things like this imagin how they would react to a human death

Yea, and because child porn is illegal, the cost of it has now gone up. So what? Just because something will be "harder to get" doesn't mean we should ban it...how stupid is that argument?
