The Farm Animal Rights Movement (FARM) is on a bus tour, offering $1 to consumers to watch their grisly animal abuse video.
Let me preface this blog by saying that I don’t support anyone who abuses animals. Whenever a case of animal abuse is in the news, I’m disheartened and disappointed that anyone could mistreat a living creature the way some people do. However, I also know that these cases are a rarity -- not the norm. Whether you’re a pet owner or a livestock producer, I bet you care a great deal about your animals; otherwise why would you own them in the first place? Certainly we have to regulate the bad apples when animal abuse takes place, but I don’t believe that means we should outlaw pet-owning or livestock production, do you?
Well, if the Farm Animal Rights Movement (FARM) has its way, there will be no more animal agriculture. FARM is on a nationwide bus tour, offering $1 to anyone who is willing to spend a few minutes to watch their grisly, dramatic video footage of how they see animal agriculture. After watching the video, consumers are urged to decrease their consumption of animal proteins and strive to go vegan.
The video documentary is four minutes long and is called “Farm To Fridge,” and is part of FARM’s 10 Billion Lives Tour -- named for their effort to save 10 billion farm animals. According to FARM, in July, they had more than 1,100 viewers in a single day in Uniondale, NY, and they have reached more than 23,000 people total.

This pay-per-view tactic is just another way for animal rights activists to line their pocketbooks to help achieve their ultimate goals of promoting a vegan society and eliminating animal agriculture.
As for me, I don’t have to pay to see that livestock producers genuinely care about their animals, and I know that animal abusers are the minority, not the norm.
What do you think about this latest animal rights effort to derail animal agriculture?
