AN ORGANIZATION KNOWN AS COMPASSION OVER KILLING HAS RELEASED A VIDEO OF THE QUALITY PORK PROCESSORS, AND THE WAY THAT THEY TREAT THEIR ANIMALS THERE, SPECIFICALLY PIGS. IT IS A DIFFICULT VIDEO TO WATCH, BECAUSE YOU GET A SENSE OF NOT ONLY HOW CRUEL THEY ARE, BUT HOW UNSANITARY THE CONDITIONS ARE AND HOW UNSAFE IT IS FOR US TO CONSUME THE MEAT THAT IS NOT EVEN REALLY INSPECTED THERE. THE VIDEO WE ARE ABOUT TO SHOW YOU IS LONG, GRAPHIC, BUT GIVES YOU A SENSE OF WHAT IS HAPPENING TO.

THE FOOD YOU ARE EATING IN THE U.S. TAKE A LOOK. THIS VIDEO WAS TAKEN INSIDE A USDA INSPECTED SLAUGHTERHOUSE THAT SUPPLIES HORMEL. WITH FASTER LINE SPEEDS THAN ALMOST ANY OTHER FACILITY IN THE U.S., APPROXIMATELY 1300 PIGS ARE KILLED EACH HOUR. BY LAW, PIGS MUST BE RENDERED INSENSIBLE TO PAIN BEFORE HAVING THEIR THROATS SLIT. HOWEVER, THIS DOES NOT ALWAYS HAPPEN AT QUALITY PORK PROCESSORS, EITHER THROUGH HUMAN ERROR OR THROUGH INTENTIONAL CRUELTY, AS ONE WORKER ADMITTED. PIGS WHO REGAIN SENSIBILITY ON THE SLAUGHTER LINE ARE SOMETIMES EVEN SCALDED ALIVE. ONE FACILITY SUPERVISOR RESPONSIBLE FOR.

OVERSEEING THE STUNNING OF ANIMALS WAS CAUGHT SLEEPING ON THE JOB. OTHERS WERE CAUGHT CHEERING AS A PIG WAS IMPROPERLY STUNNED. AND DRENCHING PAPER TOWELS IN PIGS BLOOD TO THROW AT OTHER WORKERS. OUR FOOTAGE ALSO SHOWS NUMEROUS POTENTIAL FOOD SAFETY ISSUES, SUCH AS ANIMALS WITH PROLAPSED ORGANS BEING PROCESSED FOR FOOD, AS WELL AS COUNTLESS PIG CARCASSES RIDDLED WITH PUSFILLED ABSCESSES AND COVERED WITH FECES. WOW. THAT IS A DIFFICULT VIDEO TO WATCH. AND THAT IS NOT EVEN THE FULL VIDEO. YOU GUYS SHOULD WATCH THE FULL VIDEO TO KIND OF GET THE.

FULL PICTURE OF WHAT IS HAPPENING, NOT ONLY TO THESE ANIMALS LET’S SAY YOU DON’T CARE ABOUT ANIMAL CRUELTY AT ALL. KEEP IN MIND THAT THAT FOOD IS UNSAFE TO EAT. AND THE REASON WHY THIS EXPOS IS SO IMPORTANT IS BECAUSE THIS PARTICULAR FACTORY WAS PART OF A PILOT PROGRAM THAT WOULD ALLOW THE ORGANIZATION OR THE COMPANY TO SELFREGULATE. THEY DECIDED THAT MAYBE SELFREGULATION IS A BETTER IDEA. THAT IS THE CORE OF LIBERTARIAN IDEOLOGY, RIGHT LET THE FREE MARKET DECIDE, LET PEOPLE SELFREGULATE, WE ARE INHERENTLY GOOD, WE’LL DO THE RIGHT THING.

NO, WE WILL GIVE YOU PUS FILLED HOT DOGS. AND NOT TOTALLY SELFREGULATING, THAT IS ONE OF THE PLACES WHERE THERE IS STILL SOME REGULATORS. YOU SAW THE USDA GUY ASLEEP ON THE JOB. WHAT THEY WANT TO DO IS GET TO THE POINT WHERE THEY DON’T HAVE ANY OF THAT REGULATION. THIS IS WHAT THEY DO AT THE PLACE WHERE THE GOVERNMENT IS STILL AROUND SORT OF. CAN YOU IMAGINE WHAT THEY WOULD DO IF THERE WAS NOBODY WATCHING YOU THINK THEY WOULDN’T IN THE FULL VIDEO THEY SHOW PIGS WHO CAN’T WALK,.

AND YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO INSPECT THEM. I’M AMAZED THAT THIS IS LAW YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO INSPECT THESE DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE PIG FOR DISEASE. THEY DON’T DO ANY OF THAT. THE INSPECTORS SAY NO, THERE ARE LIKE THOUSANDS OF PIGS AN HOUR, WE DON’T CHECK THEM FOR ANYTHING. ONES WHO CAN’T WALK, THEY STILL USE THEM. THEY WOULD NOT TURN DOWN A SINGLE PIG IF THE GOVERNMENT WAS NOT IN THE BUILDING. I WANT TO GIVE YOU MORE DETAILED INFORMATION ON THAT, LET’S GO TO GRAPHIC 20. THIS IS ACCORDING TO MOTHER JONES, THEY.

HAVE DONE EXTENSIVE REPORTING ON THIS ISSUE. THEY FOUND THAT BECAUSE OF THE FASTPACED NATURE OF THIS JOB, THE INSPECTOR DOES NOT HAVE THE ABILITY TO DO THE COMPREHENSIVE INSPECTION THAT JOHN WAS TALKING ABOUT EARLIER. HE CAN’T REALLY CHECK FOR ALL THESE DISEASES AND THESE ISSUES THAT THE MEAT COULD POSSIBLY HAVE. CAN WE BRING THAT GRAPHIC BACK UP THAT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE TO ME. IT SAID, THE GOVERNMENT INSPECTOR SAT IN A CHAIR BECAUSE HE ONLY HAD TIME TO DO VISUAL INSPECTIONS. WHAT DO YOU MEAN, HE ONLY HAD TIME THEN SHUT THE FUCKING LINE DOWN. HOW CAN THEY.

PUT THE PIGS BY IF THEY HAVEN’T BEEN INSPECTED IT’S LIKE, I WOULD LIKE TO CHECK FOR DISEASE. YEAH, BUDDY, IF YOU CAN. SO THE NEXT TIME I HAVE TO GO IN FOR EMISSIONS, I WILL JUST TO DRIVE THROUGH THE BUILDING 90 MILES AN HOUR, I GUESS YOU DIDN’T HAVE TIME TO CHECK IT, MAYBE NEXT YEAR. IT’S THE ONLY INDUSTRY WHERE GOVERNMENT INSPECTORS ARE OPTIONAL, IF WE CAN FIT IT IN. KEEP IN MIND THAT THE USDA IS A GOVERNMENT RUN PROGRAM THAT WAS IN FAVOR OF TRYING OUT THIS PILOT PROGRAM THAT.

WOULD ALLOW THESE COMPANIES TO SELF REGULATE. IT WAS SUGGESTED BY THE HEAD OF HORMEL, ONE OF THE COMPANIES WHO OWNS THE FACTORIES BEING USED IN THE PROGRAM. I THINK HE HAS A VESTED INTEREST IN RUNNING IT A PARTICULAR WAY. IT COMES RIGHT BACK AROUND TO AN ISSUE WE TALK ABOUT A LOT, MONEY AND POLITICS. WE TALK ABOUT IT A LOT BUT IT IMPACTS EVERY FACET OF OUR DAILY LIVES, WHETHER IT IS THE FOOD WE EAT, THE AMOUNT OF MONEY WE PAY IN TAXES, THE WAY WE ARE TREATED AT THE.

WORKPLACE, IT GOES BACK TO MONEY IN POLITICS. HORMEL SHOULD NOT HAVE THE ABILITY TO INFLUENCE POLITICIANS TO THE POINT WHERE THEY GET TO SELFREGULATE, BECAUSE HERE’S THE THING, THEY HAVE A VESTED INTEREST TO PRODUCE AS MUCH MEAT AS POSSIBLE AND CUT AS MANY CORNERS AS POSSIBLE. ARE THEY GOING TO SELF REGULATE NO, THEY ARE GOING TO LOOK AFTER THEIR BOTTOM LINE. THERE IS NO MORALITY, THESE COMPANIES ARE AMORAL BECAUSE THEY HAVE A BOTTOM LINE. THERE SHOULD BE AS MANY INSPECTORS THERE AS THERE NEED TO BE FOR THE SPEED OF THE LINE. THEY SHOULD BE PAYING FOR THEM.
