Colby Keller Explains Why He Voted For Trump In New Op-Ed

Gay porn star Colby Keller is once again attempting to explain why he voted for Donald Trump, in last year's presidential election.

Writing an op-ed for The Advocate, Keller explains that as with porn, politicians are trying to sell you a fantasy.

Porn is fantasy. That’s no surprise. To say that our democracy is equally invested in the projection of certain fantasies, however — or, more to the point, is a fantasy — has the potential to anger many Americans. I’ve been the focus of that anger lately.

It began with the Constitution. Our “forefathers,” a cabal of elite owners of property (which included human beings), carefully crafted a document that has serviced their own interests — to preserve and protect their property.

This isn’t the story we receive as innocent children, about George Washington and his cherry tree, or Abraham Lincoln and his log cabin. The story of our great democracy is a fairy tale, a fantasy that continues now.

He then explained that his vote for Trump was not so much for the man himself, but rather, a vote against a corrupt system, that system being our 'broken' democracy.

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.

But then again, I’m just a porn star, not a history professor. Why trust my opinion?

In democracies, it is the opinion of people just like me, working people who struggle to survive in a brutal, contentious, competitive world, whose opinions should matter. Everyone’s opinion should matter. It’s impossible to generate an honest appreciation of the world and the politics that should shape that world when the people who suffer the most in society aren't provided with accurate information about the world around them. As The Washington Post now warns, "Democracy Dies in Darkness."

Yawn. While I enjoy Mr. Keller's appearances in fantasy films, I really think his political attitude is pointless and don't really give a shit. Communist?  They've proven it doesn't work. Get real. Fascism? yes, Trumpism is just that. I have likened our time to that of the French Revolution and that helps me get through the day. Koyaanisqatsi, the Hopi Indian phrase meaning "Life out of balance," is what seem to be living through right now. All I do is try to remember to breathe!

Instead of trying to justify yourself for your assinine vote, Mr. Keller, why not just apologize?

Time and time again, Mr. Keller has stated that he is a proud communist.  He voted for Trump in order to "heighten the contradictions" of a democracy in order to bring about the revolution to install the fictitious Marxist utopia of the worker.  I'm sorry, but there is no evidence, historical or otherwise, that this will happen.  Voting for fascism (or its less virulent cousin, Trumpism) will not bring about any type of socialist/communist change.  It will only bring more fascism. 

SPOILER ALERT: There is no revolution coming.  Sorry to say to all the communists out there, but it never was coming and it never will come.  Capitalist and democratic societies will adjust to avoid this.  They have before and they will continue to do so.  Maybe not right away or without some strong motivation, but they eventually do.  But, hey, keep believing in your fantasies.  They're no more real than the ones the Biblical Literalists believe in.
