    animal rights.

    Lot's of times these videos depict much more than just cruelty...they depict unsanitary and potentially dangerous food safety issues in the chain between farm to market.

    But you are right...it doesn't get the traction it deserves.

      that has flown well beneath the radar.

      Maybe that's why it doesn't get much traction. Because even liberals tend to think that outside of dogs and cats and their connection to other issues animals don't deserve to have any rights, which it probably why ALEC is using this issue as their wedge. They probably think - correctly - that most people don't want to watch these animal cruelty videos which only make them feel guilty before dinner anyway.
