Undercover Animal Rights Investigation Snares Iowa State Senator Who Sponsored State's Unconstitutional Ag-Gag Law

If you think the worse thing you can do to a pig is kill it, footage from Rozenboom's farm will disabuse you of that notion.

|

Last week a California-based animal rights group released gruesome photos and other evidence it says it gathered during an undercover investigation it carried out last April at an Iowa pig farm.

The disgusting photos, which you can view here, variously show overcrowding, pigs suffering from abscesses and other open sores, severed limbs scattered on the facility floor, and dead and dying pigs. Additionally, the group says the air inside the facility was "noxious."

The undercover investigative report, conducted by the group Direct Action Everywhere (DxE), which bills itself as a "global grassroots animal rights network," found what DxE says are horrific conditions at the Rosewood Pork Farm.

"Footage shot by DxE shows the brutal toll of animal agriculture—conditions which spell an agonizing death for many Rosewood Pork pigs, and a life of continual suffering for them all," the report declares.

While the name of the farm isn't particularly noteworthy, its owner is Iowa State Sen. Ken Rozenboom (R). He's both a leader in the state's agricultural community and a "leading supporter" of Iowa's reprehensible and unconstitutional agricultural gag (ag-gag) law—which is intended to stifle critical reporting on agricultural facilities and practices.

"Ag-gag laws, which are on the books in eight states, including Idaho, are laws that effectively ban journalists, whistleblowers, and activists from conducting or sharing the results of undercover investigations at agricultural and livestock processing facilities," I wrote in a 2016 blog post that discussed why I had organized fellow law-school faculty in submitting an amicus brief opposing Idaho's ag-gag law.

In that brief, we explained the First Amendment and consumer-protection harms ag-gag laws cause, arguing that they "ultimately den[y] consumers a marketplace of ideas in which they are free to weigh competing voices and decide for themselves the truth about food production."

While Idaho's ag-gag law was eventually overturned, similar laws are still on the books in a handful of states, including Iowa, where a court challenge has halted enforcement of the law.

This week, State Sen. Rozenboom acknowledged at least some truth behind the shocking allegations. He conceded the investigation revealed "careless animal husbandry practices that violate acceptable animal care protocols."

"I acknowledge that there were caretaker deficiencies," Rozenboom told the Des Moines Register. "There were things that not ought to have happened, that we're not OK with. I'm ashamed of it."

But he also remained defiant.

"This type of dangerous, illegal activity cannot be condoned," Rozenboom said of the animal-rights group's investigation. He also says he'll ask the state to prosecute DxE investigators on trespassing charges.

"While acknowledging some problems at the facility, state Sen. Ken Rozenboom said Thursday the investigation was a 'professional hit job' designed to undermine consumer support for the pork industry," the Register reports.

That's an incredibly shortsighted and tone-deaf comment. Rozenboom must know that the conditions alleged to have existed at his farm are what really undermines consumer support for the pork industry. If the DxE investigation had captured a well-run operation that showed a modicum of regard for the animals before their slaughter, no one would be talking about Rozenboom's farm. 

Various reports indicate Rozenboom was leasing the facility in question to another farmer during the period when the DxE investigation took place. Rozenboom says he ended the business relationship with the lessee last year at least in part over concerns about the farmer's treatment of pigs.

"He said they made the switch because they were concerned about how the former operator cared for his animals and maintained the building," the Register reports. "He pointed to delays in removing dead pigs from the facility as an example."

While there is absolutely no indication Rozenboom participated in any animal abuse that may have occurred on his farm, I've also seen no indications that Rozenboom reported the "concern[ing]" actions of his unnamed lessee to law enforcement or state regulators.

If there was a whistle to blow, Rozenboom appears to have kept it in his pocket. That fact alone makes the DxE investigation a vitally important contribution to the marketplace of ideas.

The undercover investigation was led by Matt Johnson, a DxE official who hails from Iowa. I asked Johnson last week about DxE's goals, including whether he and his colleagues want to end all animal agriculture and meat-eating. He didn't mince words.

"The short answer is yes, we want to end animal agriculture," Johnson told me by email. He also says that he and DxE believe all livestock farming is inherently inhumane. "We don't believe in humane animal ag," Johnson writes.

I applaud DxE for exposing what appear by every indication to be brutal, disgusting, inhumane, neglectful, and monstrous conditions at the pig farm. DxE's investigation benefits animals and American consumers alike. But my boisterous applause ends right about there.

For DxE, investigations such as this one are a means to an end. And that end is the adoption of new laws that outlaw all animal agriculture and completely banish meat from the American diet. I could not disagree more with DxE's goal to end all animal agriculture. I believe every person has a right to make their own food choices—whatever those may be.

I strongly support the right of farmers everywhere to raise livestock for food, a position I've held for years. I also believe that the overwhelming majority of food producers in this country take proper care of the animals they raise for food. In 2016, I toured a pig farm in Iowa and found it predictably smelly but otherwise clean and humane.

After a recent ruling that enjoined Iowa from enforcing its ag-gag law, Rozenboom told the Gazette he was "personally very disgusted that we can't protect honest, hardworking Iowans but we'll protect criminals and people that lie for a living."

This is nonsense. It is entirely possible to support investigations like the one DxE conducted and to oppose the group's ultimate goal; just as it is possible to support animal agriculture and the people who make it possible while opposing ag-gag laws and the people who treat animals as Rozenboom's farm lessee reportedly did.

  1. Maybe the pig farmers can charge these animal-rights activists under multiple felony counts and file a civil action seeking millions of dollars in damages.

    https://www.lifenews.com/2019/12/06/david-daleiden-slams-ruling-allowing-trial-against-him-planned-parenthood-is-real-criminal/

    Reason’s last story on Daleiden was in 2017. As we’ve seen, there have been developments since then.

    1. I’m not saying this is the way it should be, but I think this is the way it is: People will shun that story because of the source. It may be better to reference pro-choice sites taking glee in these rulings than it is is to link to a pro-life site.

      “Two anti-abortion activists who secretly filmed themselves trying to buy fetal tissue from Planned Parenthood were charged Tuesday with 15 felonies by California prosecutors who say that their videos invaded the privacy of medical professionals by filming without their consent.”

      There are plenty of people who will support abortion rights–but not in the name of violating someone’s First Amendment rights. Meanwhile, provoking people who support violating someone’s First Amendment rights into doing so in a public forum because they support abortion rights is another way to discredit them in the eyes of average people.

      1. Fair enough, but the link was just to show that the controversy exists. Reason has made clear where it stands – in support of the 1st Amendment, it’s just a matter of updating their coverage (and nobody could accuse Reason of being prolife):

        https://reason.com/2017/03/29/anti-abortion-activists-face-dubious-eav/

        1. I mean, look at prostitution (so to speak) – it’s not as if Reason did some prostitution articles a few years ago and then said, “OK, we’ve covered the subject, let’s move on to something else.”

        2. That’s Sullum. You might send him an email directly. Sullum is so principled, he’ll criticize the constitutionality and legality of killing Osama bin Laden. Look at the latest group picture of the staff at Reason HQ (sans Bailey, Doeherty, Sullum, et. al), and I don’t see anybody that looks like they’re about to write a principled defense of free speech or freedom of the press from the perspective of an attack on Planned Parenthood. Read their articles, and I get the same sense: principled libertarian arguments are to be made in favor of cute bunnies with big sad eyes–not the bad guys. Even more so, making a principled argument in favor of the bad guys may be the definition of unprincipled in their minds.

          If they believe that racists have free speech rights, I doubt you’ll ever read a piece by that bunch that would admit it, and First Amendment rights for what might as well be the anti-abortion lobby is probably almost as bad. If you want to see someone write a principled piece, bring it to the attention of a principled writer–like Sullum.

          1. This very article – the Linnekin article – shows a bit of principle since he’s really big on “food freedom” and generally against regulating the food industry or targeting that “industry.”

            At some point, the rest of the staff will discover that their TDS articles won’t shield them from progressive wrath, given their defense of gun rights, free markets, and the right to hurt leftists’ feelings.

            Let me think about whether it’s worth contacting them directly.

          2. “If they believe that racists have free speech rights”

            Racists have rights, too, prominently including every expression right any other American possesses.

            And the right to be disdained and mocked by decent Americans.

            And the right to have their Confederate monuments removed (from public property) by decent Americans.

            And the right to be replaced by their betters as America continues to progress against racists’ wishes and efforts.

            And the right to rant and whine and whimper about all of it.

            1. You clearly enjoy the right to be disdained and mocked.

            2. “And the right to be disdained and mocked by decent Americans.

              And the right to have their Confederate monuments removed (from public property) by decent Americans.”

              Speaking of which, why is it that that Regressive sham movement never for around to demanding the removal of that Stalinist, racist whackjob FDR from monuments and currency for locking up 100,000 citizens of Japanese/German/Italian into camps?

              Oh, right. Because that movement was a bullshit laughingstock designed to mask attempts by a bunch of Communist psychopaths to violently punch away free speech that was detrimental to the dead and decayed Democrat Party.

            3. Do you believe vocal opposition to affirmative action is racist?

              Do you believe vocally supporting Trump’s wall is xenophobic?

              Do you believe making racist and xenophobic statements should disqualify someone from management and hiring positions within a private company by law?

      2. This case turned into more than a 1a story. Daeledin was not allowed to present mich of his evidence at court and then the judge directed the jury to return with a guilty plea.

    2. I continue to be fascinated by the similarities between the animal rights movement and the pro-life movement, and by how much the two groups hate each other.

      1. Poor chipperMW. He doesnt realize that we dont eat babies but do eat animals.

  2. “While acknowledging some problems at the facility, state Sen. Ken Rozenboom said Thursday the investigation was a ‘professional hit job’ designed to undermine consumer support for the pork industry,” the Register reports.”

    I suppose that plays well in Iowa, but just because it’s a professional hit job designed to undermine consumer support for the pork industry doesn’t mean it isn’t true.

    These ag-gag laws seem especially futile since the consumers targeted by the animal rights groups are probably in another state. Those delicious hogs are being sold to consumers in California and China. They’re trying to prohibit journalists in California from publishing?

    Sounds like drug war logic: If we push the penalties associated with cocaine towards infinity, it may not do anything productive for the drug war, but it does make it look like we’re doing something. And I suppose animal rights activists are even less popular than cocaine dealers among Iowa’s pig farmers.

    1. Not all people who raise pigs have facilities that look like that on a daily basis but shit happens. Pigs will eat almost anything so they will devour each other if they are hungry enough. That is why you feed them well and give them some room to move with “clean” areas.

      The Dont Eat Animal People dont want animal injected with antibiotics, so you get swine disease when they are in such proximity. Dont want to pay for expensive meat, then animal farmers/ranchers need to keep costs down.

      This is partly a Propaganda campaign to end meat-eating. This is partly an effort to see that our food supply doesnt look like that.

      These “investigations” do nothing but make meat eaters hate Lefty non-meat eaters and make it harder for Democrats to win in Iowa and other heavy food producing states.

      1. My family farm welcomes inspectors because that is how we get suckers to pay more money for “Organic” food along other stupid buzzwords on food.

        We have cage-free and free-range, non-GMO, grass feed, pasture-raised….

        We invite visitors if people ask. If it gets bad though, NDAs would be in order for all employees.

        1. I know an animal rights person who lives in Scotland, next to a farm where foodies can come in and pick the pig or cow they want slaughtered for their meal. They tour the facility, and they can go to a webcam and watch the pig or cow they’ve chosen.

          On the one hand, she thinks it’s great that people are concerned about the conditions of the animal, but, on the other hand, she thinks it’s psychotic to want to meet the pig or cow you want to eat.

          That’s such a cute pig! I’ll have its blade shoulder and some of its loin.

          1. People do have a weird projection of human qualities and emotions on animals, especially food animals. This appears to come from the expansion of socially acceptable projection onto pets.

            We don’t name our animals unless there is one with some weird trait. “Farty the Cow” for example. Farty the Cow lived a life similar to all the other food animals that we tag with identifying digits and died exactly the same. Farty the Cow was turned into all the food and other products that cows are processed into.

            Some people are shocked that we get our eggs from roaming chickens and then slaughter the chickens into poultry products. Yeah, some people dont realize that laid eggs are naturally BROWN, WHITE or BLUE.

  3. Look, you’ve got to have a strong stomach if you’re going to take a close look at how the sausage is made. Oddly enough, this adage about the legislature can be applied to pig farms as well.

  4. For the up-front straight-on “what I think” summary, this was awful hypocrisy of this State Sen. Ken Rozenboom (R)-(Asshole)… Animals deserve at least the barest humane treatment. Also… If you as a farmer want to make MONEY, you will realize that “happy” plants and animals produce more meat-milk-honey-egg-fruits-veggies etc.!

    On the issue of getting rid of meat animals (human meat-eating) altogether…

    (Short version up top).
    Ralph Waldo Emerson, who said, ‘The State must follow, and not lead, the character and progress of the citizen.’

    Here is the full-blown quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson:
    ‘Republics abound in young civilians who believe that the laws make the city, that grave modifications of the policy and modes of living and employments of the population, that commerce, education and religion may be voted in or out; and that any measure, though it were absurd, may be imposed on a people if only you can get sufficient voices to make it a law. But the wise know that foolish legislation is a rope of sand which perishes in the twisting; that the State must follow and not lead the character and progress of the citizen; that the form of government which prevails is the expression of what cultivation exists in the population which permits it. The law is only a memorandum.’

    Another relevant Emerson quote:
    “All men plume themselves on the improvement of society, and no man improves.”

    1. Emerson was a hell of a fart smeller! He was SPOT ON!

      Applying his thoughts to outlawing the eating of meat, here’s what we get:

      Suppose that Government Almighty goes too far, and mandates no-meat diets, which many people disagree with, just like the War on Drugs today…

      Then there will be underground, makeshift, amateurish animal-killing-and-butchering shops, where the animals will be treated far less humanely than they are today! (Thank You Do-Gooders!!!)
      You will not be able to let your cat or dog wander through the bushes in your own back yard, for fear of meat-hungry lawbreaking pet-snatchers!

      (But, Meat-Hungry Lawbreaking Pet-Snatchers would make an MOST EXCELLENT name for a garage band!)

    2. “The wise know that foolish legislation is a rope of sand which perishes in the twisting; that the State must follow and not lead the character and progress of the citizen; that the form of government which prevails is the expression of what cultivation exists in the population which permits it. The law is only a memorandum”

      —-Emerson

      Segregation didn’t end because government changed the laws. Government changed the laws because the American people wouldn’t abide segregation anymore. It was the same way with the drug war.

      Convince the American people that marijuana shouldn’t be against the law, and politicians will fall all over themselves to change it. As of 2012, Barack Obama raided medical marijuana clinics in California hundreds of times. Candidate Trump promised to leave recreational marijuana alone in 2016, so long as the dispensaries abided by state law, and that’s what he’s done–despite the wishes of his Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Change the American people’s minds, and it doesn’t matter who’s in charge.

      The same kind of thing happened with veal. I don’t know that there were ever any laws prohibiting veal, but those laws weren’t necessary even if they existed. Ordering veal in a restaurant became socially unacceptable–and that’s why veal isn’t on the menu anymore.

      This is what worries me about young people embracing socialism to the point that politicians will openly use the word. If enough of the American people come to imagine that socialism is a good thing, don’t expect the law or the Constitution to save us. Persuading each other is more important than policy. That’s why vicious dictators are scared to death of what their people are saying about them.

      1. Veal is on the menu where I eat. And it’s delicious!

        1. The only time I’ve seen it on a menu in the last five years was as “osso buco”, which plenty of people order without even realizing it’s veal.

          Veal used to be on every almost menu, typically as some version of piccata or scalopini, and it just isn’t there anymore like it used to be–because people don’t want it.

          Ordering veal in polite society has become like picking your nose.

      2. Or maybe people came to the realization that veal is suitable only for baby food.

  5. I’m missing what the libertarian argument is for condoning trespassing “journalists” doing secret “investigations” on private property.

    1. Just because you become an employee of a farm (factory, hospital, etc.), it is OK to use the LONG ARM OF THE LAW to enforce laws that say you may NOT speak, write, or take photos about your activities while employed? (Excluding IP provisions). Employees should be slaves, of some sort?

      I understand that the State needs to have a legal monopoly on violent force (excluding individual self-defense and the emergency defense of others). Till human nature is perfected, we MUST make this compromise. But… Now you want to ADD to the list of bare-essential “government monopolies”, the right to practice underground journalism? Why?

      1. So, it’s OK with you if I hide in your house and secretly record you, as long as I disapprove of something you’re doing, and others who agree with me would like to know what you’re doing?

        1. If I am selling ANY goods or services of ANY kind, to ANYONE, and I hire you on, into my house, and you are there, working your approved hours (and no more), and you “sneakily” record (in your head, on your notepad, in your photos or recordings) some adverse information, that is newsworthy (with “newsworthy” being in the eyes of free humans anywhere and everywhere), concerning my business affairs… Then HELL YES, you should be free to do as you please with that information! Even if you have contractually agreed to NOT tell about my sleazy doings!

          SOME contracts are too odious to have the State being in the business of enforcing them…

          Example: In the “good old days”, when, in the name of my community’s “rights” to be free of dark-skinned peoples, I could ADD an “in perpetuity” contractual clause when I sold my house, that NO darkies were EVER to be allowed to buy this house! “Property rights” and “freedom of contract”, right? Was this libertarian , too? Have we lost libertarian freedom, in that these kinds of contractual provisions can no longer be enforced… BY THE STATE?! BY MEN WITH GUNS?!

          1. I’ll take that as a “yes”.

        2. To be clear on the details… In a maximized-individual-freedom world, the “State Sen. Ken Rozenboom (R)-(Asshole)s” of the world should be totally free to FIRE any “underground journalists” that they find in their employment… (Unless that would break a legitimate contract). The information that a journalist gathers, in such a case, still belongs to the journalist.

          Government Almighty involvement in “broken promises” needs to be wisely limited… Else, when I marry into Aunt Mildred’s family, and I promise to NOT tell anyone outside of the family, about Aunt Mildred’s habit of swallowing “smart pills” from under the rabbit hutch… And I break my promise, and I spill the beans about the “smart pills”… Are we gonna tie up the courts and the cops about THIS?!?!?

    2. “I’m missing what the libertarian argument is for condoning trespassing “journalists” doing secret “investigations” on private property.”

      I don’t have a problem with laws against trespassing. The legitimate libertarian purpose of government is to protect our rights–and trespassing is a violating of someone’s property rights.

      The law under consideration here prohibits journalists from publishing something.

  6. “If the DxE investigation had captured a well-run operation that showed a modicum of regard for the animals before their slaughter, no one would be talking about Rozenboom’s farm.”

    Come. The DxE guy told you straight up that they want to end all animal agriculture. The ag-gag laws are dumb but you’re kidding yourself if you thought that DxE was ever going to put out a video that came close to helping a farmer.

    1. So even if DxE put out a video congratulating the farmer… “No pigs were mistreated or abused here”… Would that make the 11:00 news? Would we be talking about it? “talking about Rozenboom’s farm” is happening because it was a wantonly, needlessly cruel operation, plain and simple! What is HAPPENING is the real issue, NOT who spread the news!!! If your worst enemy in the whole world woke you up, in the dead of night, telling you that your house was on fire, would you stay in your burning bed, because so-and-so is usually an asshole?

      1. Maybe if the animal rights terrorists in Direct Bullshit Everywhere didn’t have a track record of staging animal abuse and then recording it and passing it off as standard practice, people might actually take them seriously.

        1. Whoa! Now THAT is pretty underhanded! I hadn’t thought of it, or heard of it, but yeah, fanatics will do fanatical things…

          I googled “DxE deceptive practices” and all I could find was DxE accusing others of “deceptive practices”! No big deal, but if you have any links handy, I’d be curious to see one…

    2. The next step is like the ABC Food Lion expose-

      The undercover “employee” responsible for cleaning the deli slicer doesn’t do his job so he can secretly film a dirty deli slicer

  7. Ending farm production of animals for meat means ending the existence of these animals. Does PETA think farmers will continue to breed and feed animals just so they can frolic about?

    If you had to choose between a short life and no life at all, what would you pick?

    1. PETA would actually be OK with that. They have no problem killing sick and injured animals at the shelters they run in order to end their suffering. (This wasn’t about PETA though.)

      1. PETA has no problem killing healthy animals in these “shelters” (read: dingy vans) and then driving across state lines to toss them in dumpsters, either.

    2. That’s a good point.

    3. “Ending farm production of animals for meat means ending the existence of these animals. Does PETA think farmers will continue to breed and feed animals just so they can frolic about? If you had to choose between a short life and no life at all, what would you pick?”

      I have made this argument myself. It’s also true for domesticated European honeybees. who fertilize many of our favorite crops. And, for the record, I keep a vegan diet. I am disinclined to try to tell other people what to eat — that is their business.

  8. “Ordering veal in a restaurant became socially unacceptable–and that’s why veal isn’t on the menu anymore.”

    Not even close, veal is bloody expensive, That’s why most restaurants do not have it. Hell you can get a 16 oz NY strip of steak cheaper than veal and more meat for your dollar.

    1. I don’t know about restaurants, but veal is still sold in supermarkets. Whether it is now “real” veal (from young calves) rather than the “faux veal” (from grown cattle that were deliberately kept anemic so that their meat wouldn’t toughen into beef) which had been sold, I don’t know. If laws requiring proper nutrition for livestock animals are being enforced and have stopped the production of the latter kind of veal, that might be why it has become so expensive.

  9. “While acknowledging some problems at the facility, state Sen. Ken Rozenboom said Thursday the investigation was a ‘professional hit job’ designed to undermine consumer support for the pork industry,” the Register reports.

    That’s an incredibly shortsighted and tone-deaf comment.

    Legally stupid, too; it’s a concession that these laws are not viewpoint neutral, but are specifically aimed at suppressing criticism. (Not that this is shocking news to anyone, but it’s still not a good idea to put it in print.)

  10. Nice to see Reason taking this stance after basically ignoring the Daedelin prosecution in California.

    1. Abortion>pig farmers

    2. <b< . I believe every person has a right to make their own food choices—whatever those may be.

      Now do dogs, cats, and deceased humans.

      1. There is no reason to treat a dog, cat, pigeon or horse (absent genuine health issues) any differently from a cow, pig, or chicken in this context.

  11. This Rozenboom seems a relatively standard-issue Republican from the can’t-keep-up sticks, the type of old white guy who inherits a farm, takes sweet government subsidies, then rails about welfare, socialism, redistribution, and communism while recommending bootstraps for others.

    Also, a moral compass built on Christianity, I would expect to learn.

    This clinger can’t be replaced soon enough.

  12. I make a big amount online work . How ??? Just u can done also with this site and u can do it Easily 2 step one is open link next is Click on Tech so u can done Easily now u can do it also here..>>> Click it here  

  13. I can understand the desire to pass these law, however, they are counterproductive (as well as unconstitutional). These animal rights groups have been caught staging abuse, even abusing animals themselves to get footage. They also have a long history of misreporting (I am not saying they did or did not do that here). My favorite example was a HSUS commercial several years ago that shows a Holstein cow being moved in a tractor whole Sarah McLachlan sings in the background. The cow was obviously suffering from milk fever, you could tell by the distinctive S curved neck. Milk fever is a life threatening emergency, in which the cow is unable to mobilize calcium from her bones, leading to total muscle failure (note the cow wasn’t moving in the video because it’s muscle were shut down). The prescribed treatment includes glucose, and calcium IV and placing the cow in a hip lock to keep her standing. Death is usually caused by the cow’s own weight suffocating her to death slowly. It is common practice to move cows in this condition in a tractor, because have you ever tried to move a 1500 pound animal by hand, it doesn’t work. They should have used a safety strap but that was the only thing wrong in the video. But HSUS implied that the moving of the cow in the tractor was the abuse. No, they were actually trying to save its life. Trust me, you aren’t getting a healthy mature Holstein to sit quietly in a tractor bucket while you drive it around. It isn’t happening, cows hate being off their feet.

  16. Heck… I’ve seen worse photo’s in human hospitals.. Are hospitals abusing and neglecting all of us too??? Hey, look – pigs have health problems too??? How dare that EVER happen!! Must be abuse and neglect caused eh??

    Perhaps DxE can hire an “undercover” journalist to steal your private healthcare photo’s at the hospital or come over to borrow the telephone and steal evidence in IN-YOUR-HOME and post them all over the news while running around screaming that you abuse and neglect yourself.

    This mob of the biggest snowflakes to ever exist really should be thrown in prison for their witch-hunting defamation propaganda and tactics. The most horrible human beings I’ve ever seen that are actually getting backed by distorting and promoting the ideas of “Animal Rights” supersede human rights.

    1. “Perhaps DxE can hire an “undercover” journalist to steal your private healthcare photo’s at the hospital or come over to borrow the telephone and steal evidence in IN-YOUR-HOME and post them all over the news while running around screaming that you abuse and neglect yourself.”

      Do farm animals have any expectation of veterinary privacy? If so, how do we know this? SHOULD farm animals have any expectation of veterinary privacy? Should such expectations have the force of law? If “no”, then your analogy has a few big, giant vacancies here, as to whether it is worth a damn!

      1. Do babies have any expectation of hospital privacy? If so, how do we know this? SHOULD someone’s baby have any expectations of privacy? Should such expectations have the force of law? If “no”, then maybe the >>>PARENT<<< (or heck even the legal guardian) of that child should have some law protecting them from their children being exploited by a mob of psychopathic snowflakes.

        1. “Mob of psychopathic snowflakes” to you = “journalists” to me! As long as they are not violating VERY basic rights of others (not to be raped, robbed, murdered, trespassed on), I would like for my tax money to NOT be spent on protecting me from the lies that they might tell! My reading skills and natural skepticism, AND the free communications of other journalists, should be enough to protect me! The answer to wrong speech is correct speech; NOT the immediate recourse to the State’s “Men with Guns” to squelch the speech of people we disagree with!

          What we have now, is “whistle-blower protection laws” at the same time as we have anti-free-journalism laws, at the one and the same time! A CLEAR case of Government Almighty picking winners and losers!

          1. Your problem is you believe anyone who self-proclaims a title of “journalist” should be EXEMPT of any judicial search warrant that would require justifiable evidence and execution by a law-enforcement officer who would be held accountable for unjustified disclosure.

            No – These wack-jobs aren’t fighting, “anti-free-journalism”. They’re psychologically warped people running wild with a self-induced need for attention and don’t mind being dishonest, deceitful and publicly shaming anyone they can find to get it.

            Any 2nd-Grader could see that.

            1. If they are lying and unjustly damaging the financial interests of others, that’s libel or slander. We already have civil laws to cover that; we need no more laws on this exact matter here. Sue in civil court for remedy in these cases!

              But now some people are adding CRIMINAL charges to this!
              Undercover agriculture journalism is outlawed!
              Medical matters? SUSPECTED child abuse REQUIRES disclosure! (Ditto teachers etc).
              NSA snoops? Whistle-blowing is prohibited!
              Defense contractor fraud? Whistle-blowing is protected!
              Veterinary fraud? Or abuse of animals at the vet? Who knows about whistle-blowing? Is it mandated or prohibited?!?!
              Check the local laws for EVERYTHING YOU DO, to see if it is mandated or outlawed!

              You SEE what a mish-mash of random and arbitrary Government Almighty micro-management this is?

              1. I’m betting the “complexity” of the matter has more to do with “confusing general property and privacy rights” than it has anything to do with micro-managing.

                Transparency was a good idea for public governing. It’s NOT a good idea or concept for the privacy of people, property or their business. If a person see’s a crime; they should report it like a civilized person. Nothing justifies snooping and rummaging through a persons business in search of damning evidence unless they’re a officer of the law with a search warrant. The VERY reason such a thing as a search warrant even EXISTS. And yes; one is needed for officers to search a business too or use to be anyways.

                Snowflakes have been confusing the very definition of just about everything the USA has ever stood for.

  17. I started working for them online and in a short time after I’ve started averaging 15k a month… The best thing was that cause I am not that computer savvy all I needed was some basic typing skills and internet access to start… This is where to start > Read more

  18. And the REAL criminals of animal abuse and neglect would be Mother Nature now wouldn’t it be?

    The Animal Rights mob at a trial, “We’d like to call the Lion to the stand”…. 30-minutes of the discovery channel and that Lion would be on death row.

    The mob isn’t after humane justice. They are after prosecuting humans specifically to make themselves feel special!!! They are the very definition of psychotic snowflakes.

  19. The pictures represent a normal occurrence of medical issues. Life happens. Prolapses or expected. In the most humane conditions you could create, medical conditions will occur. The “reporting” is misdirection.
    As a person that has been around animal agriculture for 5 decades, I can tell you animals fare much better today than in 1960. I spent morning chores knocking newborn runts in the head to kill them. They were never going to survive and only endangered the rest of the litter.
    Animal welfare groups depend on the ignorance of the masses to sell their lies.
