Denounce Blockage of Anti-Animal Torture Act

Harry Reid

Target: Harry Reid, U.S. Senate Minority Leader

Goal: Criticize senator for blocking legislation that would make it federally illegal to brutally abuse any animal.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has blocked the Prevent Animal Cruelty and Torture Act (PACT), which would make it federally illegal to engage in a form of animal abuse known as “crushing.” Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) requested unanimous consent since the legislation was not controversial and the majority of Democrats and Republicans had already shown favor for its passing. The bill was also endorsed by the Humane Society and the National Sheriff’s Association. Unanimous consent is typically used in such cases and allows dire legislation such as this to progress through the process quicker.

Currently, only videos and pictures of “crushing” are illegal, meaning federal prosecutors cannot bring the abusers themselves to justice without passing this legislation. This heinous form of animal abuse that some deranged individuals engage in includes burning, mutilating, suffocating, and sexually abusing animals. Often, the targets are household pets that are bought or traded on the internet, and often the abuser makes money off the photos. It is a shame that legislation to prosecute this crime does not already exist, yet while this is the first law that would protect all animals, Reid seems to have his own agenda.

During the vote to pass the PACT, Reid said he did not want to vote on a bill that has not received a hearing until there is a hearing for Judge Merrick Garland to fill the empty Supreme Court Justice seat. Reid brings up an important issue, but it does not mean animal abusers should be allowed to walk free. The PACT would charge these acts to a felony, which would come with fines and up to seven years in prison. Unfortunately, Reid’s partisan agenda and apparent joy in wielding his power will likely cost many innocent animals their lives. Denounce Reid for his grave mistake in blocking this important legislation and allowing animal abusers to evade justice.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Senator Reid,

Your recent decision to block the Prevention of Animal Cruelty and Torture Act (PACT) is abominable. Due to your personal, partisan agenda, you have decided to allow crimes against animals to continue unpunished. Burning, suffocating, sexually abusing, or any other kind of animal torture should already be illegal under federal law, and we are ashamed that you would do anything to prevent such a worthy bill.

It is not often that Republicans and Democrats can agree. In the case of the PACT, though, nearly everyone was on board and knew that this was important legislation. Organizations like the Humane Society and the National Sheriff’s Association were also in favor of this bill. No one thinks you are a hero for sacrificing abused animals just to make a political point. There are bigger things in this world, and protecting innocent animals is our responsibility as a people and a nation. We, the undersigned, condemn your behavior in blocking this bill, which would have made it punishable under federal law to brutally abuse any animal.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    This vile Harry Reid is a psychopathic animal torturing monster the same as the monsters that commit this sadism and evilness against the innocent.
    This sadistic and callous Harry Reid must be sacked from his position as U.S. Senate Minority Leader. Having a psychopathic monster like this Harry Reid is absolutely preposterous and an abomination.
    Get rid of this monster Harry Reid. He is a Senator’s arsehole.

    • He is already retiring at the end of this term.

    • Yeah, you have to wonder why anyone would want to block this…unless they’re into the same sick stuff.

      Anyone opposing this should immediately be removed from office, clearly he is a sadistic, sociopath!

  2. NARCISSISM IS RAMPANT IN POLITICS!
    NARCISSIST POLITICIANS DON`T SERVE THE PEOPLE; THEY SERVE THEMSELVES.
    LACK OF EMPATHY (which they can feign) is one of the most striking features of people with NARCISSISTIC PERSONALITY DISORDER.
    Narcissists do not consider the pain they inflict on others; nor do they give any credence to others perceptions..
    THEY SIMPLY DO NOT CARE ABOUT THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS THAT CONFLICT WITH THEIR OWN.
    DO NOT EXPECT THEM TO LISTEN, VALIDATE, UNDERSTAND, OR SUPPORT YOU.
    If they TRULY CARED they could stop this and many other vile problems long ago, but they`re a huge part of the problems!!
    Vile, corrupt, money grabbing politicians are bastards

    • Bang-ON!!! They only thing narcissists like this guy and others MIGHT care about is if THEY were similarly tortured…before their lives were taken from them for being an utter BLIGHT upon this planet. They deserve no compassion in the form of letting them LIVE any longer, because the capacity to feel compassion does not even exist in them. They’re wired ALL WRONG, they don’t WANT to change, and so there’s no “fixing” the vast majority of them.

  3. HARRY REID OBVIOUSLY HAS A VILE PERSONALITY DISORDER, WHAT A SICK BASTARD!!

  5. What is that?! Is it a monster that protects monsters?? What reason is good enough to protect deplored sadists with their repulsive minds?

  6. William Eaves says:

  7. Lisa Zarafonetis Lisa Zarafonetis says:

    I detest that fckn reid❗️😠 He’s a douchebag asswipe❗️😡
    Signed & Shared.

  8. WTF is wrong with these people ? Animal abuse and torture is a crime and should be punished. Why would you block the Protection of Animal Abuse and Torture act and let these evil monsters commit vile acts against innocent animals. Shame on you, do the right thing !!

  9. Harry Reid and valasik are very short sighted and ineffective. They should have a horrific animal abuser baby sit their grandkids as they see no problem with these sick monsters… Maybe one of these insane abusers will b your nursing home caretaker… Good luck you idiot!
