The Right Looking To Get Street Cred From Sexual Deviants

Celebrity, Conservatism, libertarianism, Political Correctness, Prostitution, Republicans, Sex

It’s not what you say that’s particularly smart or profound, but it’s your life style that qualifies you to say it. That’s the position held by the Left and the New Right.

The American “Right” is now welcoming views from degenerate pornographers, so long as these go against left-liberals and Muslims. In the leftist tradition of identity politics, if you hail from a credible identity group—in this case Jewish, gay pornographer—well, then, you have something invaluable to impart about … Muslims and liberals, and who knows what else.

Pro-Israel activist and gay porn mogul Michael Lucas spoke to so-called alt-right website Breitbart about homophobia in the Muslim world, slamming American liberals as “apologists for Islam.”

Russian-born Lucas is a longtime pro-Israel activist and supporter of efforts to beef up gay tourism to Israel. In the past, he has written political opinion pieces detailing Israel’s impressive record on gay rights, organized gay tours of Israel and recently – and very publicly – pressured the New York LGBT Community Center to cancel meetings and events held by anti-Israel groups.

He produced “Men of Israel,” touted as the first pornographic film to be shot on location in the Holy Land with an all-Israeli/Jewish cast, as well as the non-porno, pro-Israel documentary “Undressing Israel: Gay Men in the Promised Land.” …

As a libertarian, I’m down with consenting adults doing what they want. But it is one thing to support the legal right to make and consume pornography; quite another to defer to creators and consumers of this putrid product as some Delphic oracles. This here is the objection.

Pornography—gay or straight—is disgusting. The whore who has sex to make a living is owed some respect, but not the exhibitionist who films himself, poses himself and peddles the product of his aberrant vanity for notoriety. Pornography is a special kind of sick.

Having said that, the same contempt is due to pornographers like Kim Kardashian and women like her who filmed themselves in pornographic poses. Face it, they love the exposure.

Kim Kardashian Clothed is More Obscene Than Playboy Nudes

Aesthetics, Celebrity, Conservatism, Left-Liberalism, Pop-Culture, Sex

If you think about it, Playboy magazine was quite innocent compared to today’s’ prime-time smut. Watching Kim Kardashian clothed is much more obscene than, say, Patti Mcguire’s Playboy spread in the 1970s.

Hugh Hefner was certainly a degenerate, but conservatives crowing like leftist feminists about his exploitation of women is worse than silly. (Although Ross Douthat, author of “Speaking Ill of Hugh Hefner,” is as good as a liberal.)

UPDATED (8/2): The “Passion” Of Anthony Scaramucci

Celebrity, Donald Trump, Etiquette, Healthcare, Media, Republicans

Is the passion of Anthony Scaramucci real, or just phony, folksy, showy populism, fit for the Fake News Media and a gullible population? Are Americans being played by crooked politicians and power-brokers? It won’t be a first.

(And where’s The Wall? The fight for immigration bans and moratorium?)

Thanks, POTUS, For Breaking Up The Annual Correspondent’s Circle Jerk

Thanks, POTUS, For Breaking Up The Annual Correspondent’s Circle Jerk” is the current essay now on the Daily Caller. An excerpt:

As a newly elected president, Donald Trump was quick to take one of Washington’s institutional pillars down a peg. By snubbing the 2017 annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner (WHCD), the president deflated what should have been more appropriately called the Sycophants’ Supper. Would that it was the last such supper. For now, the POTUS’s slap to this gathering of sycophants this past weekend will have to do.

Like nothing else, the annual Correspondents’ Dinner is a mark of a corrupt politics. It’s a sickening specter, where some of the most pretentious, worthless people in the country—in politics, journalism and entertainment—convene to revel in their ability to petition and curry favor with one another, usually to the detriment of the rest of us in Rome’s provinces.

Those gathered at the Annual Correspondents’ Dinner, or its Christmas party, are not the country’s natural aristocracy, but its authentic Idiocracy. No matter how poor their predictive powers, no matter how many times they get it wrong—in war and in peace—the presstitutes always find time for this orgy of self-praise

And they’re all on the same circuit, beavering at sculpting celebrity personas. Anchors at major networks hangout on late-night shows, where presidents and first ladies hobnob, too. Jimmy Fallon’s “Tonight Show” may be a vaudeville of giggles, goofiness, and mind-numbing banter. But providing bread and circuses for Booboisie comes with a “responsibility” the dancing, prancing, androgynous Mr. Fallon takes seriously. To his tomfoolery, Fallon once added a spot of promotion for ObamaCare (March, 2014), to honor Michelle Obama’s visit to the set. Fallon’s lead was a signal to Sister Act. FLOTUS launched into her own agitprop for her husband’s healthcare juggernaut on that show.

Meanwhile, “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central is a professional Shangri-La for the cast of characters at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. This year, the downright mirthless “Daily Show” donated one Hasan Minhaj as its circus clown to amuse the sycophants. I hope he came for free, for Hasan is worthless as a funny man. Not a funny bone in his body.

Hasan’s idea of verbal swordplay: calling The Donald “liar in chief.” The quip has 9,650,000 results on Google, most of them unrelated to hackneyed Hasan. “Liar in chief” goes back to 2011 and before, and has been applied to every president and candidate since 2011.

Hasan’s “originality” came together in lines as, “I would like to say it’s an honor to be here, but that would be an alternative fact.” He also invented a new form of satire: the sermon on The Hill. Interspersed with kvetching—“No one wanted to do this so, of course, it landed in the hands of an immigrant, [t]hat’s how it always goes down”was a string of clichés on the press’ duty to do a better job. For “our democracy,” you know.

The press is meant to be roasted at the WHCD. Were I a Muslim ostensibly roasting the press, like Hasan, I’d lampoon how present company covers my peaceful religion. But to do that, Hasan would have to be clever, creative, and willing to say what everyone is thinking but is too afraid to say. He’s none of those.

Someone who’s all of those things is Anthony Jeselnik. Here’s a demonstration, for future mediocrities to emcee an event like the annual Correspondents’ Dinner. It’s courtesy of the gifted (and gorgeous) Mr. Jeselnik, whose rape and Holocaust jokes are obviously more irreverent than his digs at Islam. (Smart. The offended cohort won’t KILL YOU.) To the president of the Muslim Public Affairs Council: …
