    Carrie Underwood Outraged Over New Tennessee Ag -Gag Bill

    Jason wrote a great new blog about the Ag-Gag Bill to support Carrie, and plans to write another one as he now works for Nashville Gab.

    Carrie Underwood outraged over new Tennessee ‘Ag Gag’ Bill









    NASHVILLE, Tenn., April 19, 2013 - Country superstar Carrie Underwood is never one to express political opinions in public, much less on major social media networks. However, one particularly outrageous incident has the singer-songwriter speaking out in a big way. Yesterday afternoon (April 18), Tennessee lawmakers voted 22-9 in favor of a new "Ag Gag" bill that takes accountability (in regards to livestock wellbeing) out of the hands of farmers. At its core, the bill's main goal is to halt prosecutions of animal cruelty by, instead, criminalizing whistleblowing of factory farms.


    "Shame on TN lawmakers for passing the Ag Gag bill," Underwood, outraged, ranted to her over one million followers. "If Gov. Bill Haslam signs this, he needs to expect me at his front door. Who's with me?"


    Conceivably, this legislation will make it easier for offenders to continue their abusive ways, making it illegal to film animal cruelty and not report it within 48 hours. This is a clear violation of animal rights activists' work in accumulating enough incriminating video evidence to prove long-term abuse and misdeeds. In turn, farms can claim a one-time misstep, without being punished to the full extent of the law. This also, of course, discourages farm employees of speaking out against their employers.
