Porn star Colby Keller has made no bones about voting for Donald Trump in the last US federal election. The odd thing is, he doesn't support Trump's position on pretty much anything.
Keller said he did it for the greater good.
“Things will get a lot worse and that will get us to a point where we need to be…Being a communist in 2017 means delivering better lives for people by collaborating," he told Mel magazine. "Competition and letting people who’ve controlled the earth for many years, who are evil and nasty, is not the way to get things done.”
Yep, he wants the system to totally break down and throw everything into chaos, because then, just maybe, a better system will magically bloom in its place (which has happened so many times when civilizations have fallen in the past).
He even wrote an article for The Advocate about it.
"I chose Trump because democracy in the United States is a farce," he argued. "No one better represents this farce than an orange-haired comic book villain groomed on television -- decade after decade -- to caricature the rich. It is the rich who benefit from the endless war and economic deprivation that punishes the rest of us.
"So when I cast my vote last November, I knew that tying our many political successes in the ongoing struggle for LGBTQ liberation to an institution in rapid decline, like our corrupt Democratic Party, is not a strategy to preserve those gains into the future. Maintaining our rights in a world destroyed by climate-related chaos will require tremendous perseverance and fortitude."
Fellow porn star Wesley Woods has decided to call Keller out.
My relationships with those that are socially disempowered and highly impacted by politics, makes me more sensitive and offended by white masculine privilege, like that shown by fellow gay pornstar -- Colby Keller -- a man who obviously lives in an ivory tower without any minority friends.
During a July 2017 interview with web personality Chris Baker, Colby tried to explain his vote by saying, “I think the problem is that I don’t support Trump, [but] I did vote for Trump. That’s the distinction.”
The problem with this ‘distinction’ and ideology is that there isn’t one. A vote IS support. A vote isn’t anything more or anything less than SHOWING support of that candidate. When the votes are counted and collected there’s no fairy vote mother who comes by and asks your stance on the nominee [...] you stated it, with your vote.
Woods even called out fans of Keller, arguing that "...your orgasm is not neutral [...] you are directly supporting him, his platform and therefore his politics. You are acknowledging and allowing Keller's ideas to further impact those marginalized."
Guess these two won't be filming a scene together anytime soon.
