The Obama Campaign Follows a Porn Feed on Twitter

with one comment


By Spartacus Thrace

We rightfully expect political candidates and the people around them to be morally upright and of excellent character as a condition precedent to the ability to properly conduct themselves in the affairs of government if and when elected.  The fact that a candidate for public office has pornography on his or her computer or subscribes to a pornography feed should be big news in any election, as it says a lot about the morals and character of the candidate.  Presidential candidates and their committees are no exception.  That is why it is significant and relevant to the election of our next President that the Barack Obama campaign subscribes to the pornography feed, https://twitter.com/ILikeTitsDaily, which features a daily posting of (often gaudy) photographs of the exposed breasts of women. Sometimes the breasts are not completely exposed, often the breasts are framed without showing even the faces of the women, and the sexual organs are exposed in some of the photographs.

The site @ILikeTitsDaily posted its first tweet at 4:07 PM on September 24th and @BarackObama began following it within 24 hours afterward.  As of 9:30 PM on October 6, 2012, according to the website DoesFollow.com, @BarackObama is still following @ILikeTitsDaily.

The fact that the Barack Obama campaign was following a pornography feed first came to light in wider cyberspace when the following video was posted by Karsten Okk on Youtube on October 1, 2012:

This is not, however, the first time the official Obama campaign has been caught linking to pornography on Twitter:  Approximately five months ago, BuzzFeed’s Whitney Jefferson ran a post titled “”Why Does Barack Obama Follow A ‘Celebrity Side Boob’ Twitter Account?” in which he revealed that @BarackObama was following @sidebooborg, which is a Twitter account called Celebrity Side Boob, the avatar for which shows the closely cropped side view of the naked chest of a woman, with the woman’s long hair covering the front of her breasts. The article documents the connection between @BarackObama and @sidebooborg with a series of screen grabs, and goes on to defend the campaign’s behavior on the basis that the site did not post any actual photographs of “sideboob,” just provided links to places where such photographs could be obtained. In fact, the web page link featured on @sidebooborg goes to a site that features such photographs as well as direct links to “adult webcam” and “discount” pornography sites.

The news about ILikeTitsDaily remained hidden from the greater media sphere until, on the afternoon of October 3rd, Michelle Malkin, noted conservative columnist and blogger, posted the news on her Twitter aggregation site Twitchy that @BarackObama, the official Twitter account of the Barack Obama campaign, is following a pornography feed.  Malkin also posted this news, and a properly censored photograph from the ILikeTitsDaily site to show that the purpose of that site was unmistakable, on the Twitchy Facebook page.

Facebook’s response was swift and politically predictable:  On October 5th, they informed Malkin that they had removed one of her posts for “violating community standards.”  Facebook did not otherwise identify the post, but the one that disappeared was the one with the censored photograph.  On the morning of October 6th, Facebook informed Malkin that a second, unidentified, post had been removed.  The message from Facebook also informed Malkin that she was blocked from posting on the Twitchy Facebook page for 24 hours and warned her that she would be permanently banned from Facebook if she violated Facebook’s community standards again.  Rather obviously, the Obama drones did not want the news of the Barack Obama campaign subscribing to a pornography feed to get wide circulation and went into action by registering complaints with Facebook.

This is a standard tactic of Leftists and others who detest free speech.  It’s effectiveness lies in the facts that Facebook does not hold such complaints up to anything approaching reasonable scrutiny and that it is impossible for anyone victimized by this tactic to contact a live human being and get a review of the situation.  For most Facebook page owners, the trolls inevitably win and the page they have put so much work into is permanently disabled, with years of work sent to oblivion in an electronic wink of the eye.

Malkin and her supporters were, however, quite resourceful, and breached the Facebook moat by bombarding Facebook’s own Twitter site with their complaints.  Fellow bloggers on sites such as The Blaze and PJ Tatler,  joined in and publicized Facebook’s acts of political censorship.  Within a few hours, Facebook relented and Twitchy’s Facebook page was back in business, albeit without the two offending posts. The drones did, however, succeed in keeping this out of the news for a couple of days, until it had become too “stale” for wider circulation.

It is nonetheless, this author’s earnest hope that members of the press will take note of the Barack Obama campaign’s apparent appetite for pornography and ask the candidate, Barack Obama, questions such as the following:

— Do you personally view the images provided to your campaign by the ILikeTitsDaily pornography feed?

— Why is the campaign following a pornography feed?

— How long has the campaign been following pornography feeds?

— What other pornography feeds, and what other types of pornography, are being followed by the campaign?

— What does this sort of behavior say about the moral character of a candidate?

— Is it morally proper and politically desirable for a candidate and his campaign staff to follow internet pornography feeds as an integral part of the campaign?

— Do you see anything hypocritical about following a pornography feed while holding yourself out as a champion of women’s rights and an opponent of the sexual objectification of women?

Plainly, Barack Obama and his campaign owe the American people an explanation.  Sadly, the chances of anyone in the Mainstream Media asking Barack Obama any of these questions is nil, and the moral bankruptcy and corruption of the media remains one of the greatest things wrong with the 2012 presidential election.
