Obama - the pornographers’ president

Russ Jones   (OneNewsNow.com) Monday, October 15, 2012

A leading organization focused on opposing pornography and indecency through public education and legislation claims an overwhelming majority of those in the porn industry support President Barack Obama's bid for reelection.

By a margin of 68 percent to 13 percent, the pornography industry supports President Barack Obama over Governor Mitt Romney in the upcoming presidential election, according to a new survey by XBIZ.COM, the porn industry's online journal.

Patrick Trueman, president of Morality in Media (MIM), says he is not surprised that the pornographers are strongly in the president's corner, because the Obama Department of Justice has refused to enforce federal laws prohibiting distribution of pornography.

"Those laws aren't being enforced because the Obama administration will not do it," he states flatly. "So the pornographers have enjoyed a heyday under Obama. He's the first president in many who refused to enforce these laws, and so he's got the allegiance of the pornography industry in this election."

He notes that half of the U. S. Senate and dozens of U. S. House members have signed letters to the head of the Justice Department - U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder - urging enforcement of current obscenity laws, but to no avail.

Trueman maintains most citizens do not realize the federal government prohibits the distribution of hardcore pornography, whether it be via the Internet or via the airwaves on cable or satellite television in homes and most hotels.

According to the MIM leader, Romney - if elected - would seek to enforce the law.

"I was confided by the Romney campaign to their boss and headquarters [that] he would vigorously enforce federal laws against pornography," he tells OneNewsNow. "And so the pornography industry has perked up and [said] they don't want Romney; they want Obama, who hasn't enforced the laws at all."

MIM laments that regardless of the outcome of the presidential race, the porn industry will do what it has for the last four decades - "adapt and survive ... and meet the consumer demand for adult entertainment regardless of the weight of political pressure."
