Purrs 4 Peace Week 52: Stomp Out Crush Videos

In April of this year, the United States Supreme Court, in yet another display of adjudicating in support of greed rather than human and animal rights, ruled that a law banning crush videos was unconstitutional as impinging on free speech. Really? Free speech. These cruel, noxious, horrible, shocking, videos in which animals are crushed for the sexual gratification of viewers are at heart no different than videos of the work of serial killers.A Are videos of human murders next. That these videos of the suffering of such innocent tiny souls can be condoned and elevated to the “free speech” our founding fathers fought for, that so many Americans have died to protect, would be ridiculously laughable if it weren’t so sadly sickening.


There has been new legislation introduced in the House of Representatives and one which is shortly to be introduced in the Senate to institute a new ban on the sale of these videos in the U.S. I implore everyone to contact their representatives to urge the passage of this ban as soon as possible. The only way to crush these crush videos is to remove the market for them. Greed is at their engine and cruelty is their fuel.


Let us not be discouraged. Instead, we must be more determined to end this evil. So....... we purr.



“The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men.” ~Alice Walker


Pump up the purrs. Super powered purrs are needed this week. Purr for the kittens. Purr for the helpless. Purr for peace.

Purrrrrr...Direct your purrs into the air, that every human breaths. Imagine them inhaling calm, love, peace and exhaling anxiety, anger, hate.


Purrrrrrrrrrr, purrrrrrrrrrrr, purrrrrr Imagine every kitten and puppy being held in loving arms; every cat and dog wanted and safe in a nurturing home, safe from cruelty and abuse.


Imagine understanding, empathy, compassion overwhelming every person who has or would participate in crush videos. Their hearts and minds are changed forever.


Purrrrrrrr.... Imagine the media report: Crush videos banned. Market for cruel fetish entertainment disappears.



Purrrr......Imagine compassion triumphs over cruelty, understanding over ambivalence, love over greed.


Purrrrr, purrrr, purrrrr, purrrrr, purrrr, purrrr, purrrrr, purrrr, purrrrr, purrrr, purrrrr, Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.......
