Hustler, a magazine known for its good taste and stolid prose (no,not really), has decided to turn its sights on conservative author andcommentator S.E. Cupp. The magazine just published a Photoshopped imageof Cupp performing oral sex along with the following justification:
S.E. Cupp is a lovely young lady who read too much Ayn Rand in highschool and ended up joining the dark side. Cupp, an author and mediacommentator who often shows up on Fox News programs, is undeniably cute.But her hotness is diminished when she espouses dumb ideas likedefunding Planned Parenthood. Perhaps the method pictured here is Ms.Cupp’s suggestion for avoiding an unwanted pregnancy.
Cupp has degrees in art from Cornell and New York University and is a classically trained ballet dancer.She’s what you might call a cultured individual. Unfortunately for her, she’s also attractive and conservative. As many, many conservative womencould testify, this is all it takes to be a target for misogynisticattacks by the tolerant, anti-bullying, anti-misogyny left.
Larry Flynt has responded to outrage over the photo, stating, “That’s satire. I’m able to publish this because of the Supreme Court case I won in 1984 [sic], Flynt v. Falwell.” Naturally, Mr. Flynt would only think of whether he is legally capable of publishing the image.
There are lots of angles we could explore here. The hypocrisy of aparty which turned a single use of the word “slut” into a war on womenwhile lionizing Larry Flynt as a hero. The use of sexual imagery as aweapon against any woman the left wants to ridicule for thought crimes.The idea that you’re a humorless prude if you don’t go along with theirbullying.
But really, the lesson here is the same one we keep seeing monthafter month. The left will say and do absolutely anything to anyone whoopposes their agenda. So while the President talks about civility inpublic when is serves his interests, you can bet the White House will bequiet as a church mouse as another frequent Democratic donor does hisdirty work.
