Hustler: the right to be left alone?
Posted by charliegrrl on May 20, 2007
Hustling the Left have shown the true face of Larry Flynt, the man behind Hustler, to be the misogynist, racist, anti-semetic paedophile pornographer that he is. People still celebrate him has a hero of free speech. Hustling the Left have responded to the latest celebration of Flynt, described below, by creating posters and images available from the below websites
These sites are for over 18s, the images are disturbing and contain images and cartoons of paedophilia, extreme hatred of women, racism, homophobia…so please don’t access these sites if you are under 18. Apologies to anyone offended by this image- the image is made available to make clear that Flynt is not a hero of free speech but an advocate of hate speech
On Friday the 13th in April 2007 this latest documentary on Flynt had its world premiere as the “center frame” film at the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, sponsored by Duke University, The New York Times and HBO. Flynt was even invited as an honored guest, however his brother showed up instead because Flynt claimed he was ill.
There were over 2,000 films entered in the Full Frame Festival, and apparently the Flynt documentary was among only one of two films that escaped the critical review process in an otherwise scholarly environment. Full Frame appears to have given Larry Flynt special protection where it could be assured that his critics were kept silent in order to protect Flynt from criticism. Free Speech, anyone?
Full Frame’s motto is “How much reality can you handle?”, but the filmmakers have produced a manipulative and superficial examination of Flynt, one that uses propaganda tactics and takes their audience for a ride. It is indeed a very unreal portrayal of Flynt which includes even “very little nudity” and hypocritically did not mention any of the massive amounts of racist, homophobic and misogynist materials he produced.
For decades Hustler, his hate magazine, has been on sale in almost every convenience store in the country. During that time, with each new issue every month he has declared war on women, feminists, people of color, Jews, the disabled, children, and animal rights activists, as well as any other group or individual who disagreed with him. He also constantly targets animals, women in general and ethnic minorities who have not even done anything to provoke his rage. A full generation of males have now been raised on his contempt and he loves it.
On a personal note, the first time I looked at the Hustler cartoons via Hustling the Left website, I couldn’t sleep that night. The level of woman hatred, and glorification of paedophilia in Hustler completely surpassed how much I thought men could hate women and children. I suppose I was naive.
