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 respect, but not the sexual exhibitionist who films himself, poses himself and peddles the product of his aberrant vanity for notoriety. In the process, the pornographer sullies something beautiful that ought to connect two loving partners. 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.
