Should Cruz have pulled that ad because one of the actors did softcore porn?

posted at 1:21 pm on February 12, 2016 by Allahpundit

I’m with Gutfeld and Charles Cooke in saying no but I’m also self-aware enough to know that I’m not part of the target demographic Cruz is aiming at in the south.

Says Cooke:

As for the idea that she would need to be “vetted”: Again, why? She wasn’t applying for a job at the State Department, or for a position on the board of the Anti-Pornography League. All told, there is only one question that a person who appears in a commercial needs to be asked: “Can you act as we want you to?” Clearly, she could.

Fox reports that, in addition to her adult-film work, she has … “appeared in the TV series ‘Star Trek: Voyager’ and the 1996 film adaptation of Henry James’ novel ‘The Portrait of a Lady.'” Should those episodes be pulled as well? Are they “too hot for TV”? Or is it reasonable for us to draw a distinction between porn per se and TV shows that feature people who happen to have appeared in porn?

Interesting contrast — Gutfeld’s position is “a Christian candidate should welcome the idea of redemption for moral failings” while Cooke’s position is “who cares, it’s acting!” Either could have worked as spin for Cruz, although Gutfeld’s would have given him a stronger defense in case any Christian voters took exception to the casting. As it is, by yanking the clip, Cruz is going to get hit for being a judgmental scold — probably by the actress herself, Amy Lindsay:

Before the ad was pulled, she told BuzzFeed:

Prior to the Cruz campaign pulling the ad, Lindsay told BuzzFeed News in a phone interview on Thursday that she’s a Christian conservative and a Republican. While she emphasized that she did not do hardcore porn and that she also appeared in non-erotic films, Lindsay said she thinks it is “cool” that an actor who has appeared in softcore porn could also appear in Cruz’s ad.

“In a cool way, then hey, then it’s not just some old, white Christian bigot that people want to say, ‘It could be, maybe, a cool kind of open-minded woman like me,’” she said of people supporting Cruz.

Sticking by Lindsay was an opportunity for Cruz to say that none of us is perfect and everyone’s welcome in his tent who shares his vision for America. If Jesus could minister to prostitutes, Cruz can have someone who did a couple of Skinemax movies in his attack ad. Oh well. Incidentally, Lindsay also told BuzzFeed before the ad was taken down that she was on the fence between supporting Cruz and Trump. I wonder which team she’ll end up on!

Needless to say, lots of online hot takes to come about Republicans shaming women who are “unafraid of their sexuality” or whatever. Here’s the question I can’t answer but maybe evangelical readers can: Did Cruz do the right thing here in pulling the ad? I’d assume that even a “values voter” would shrug off something like this, but then I’d also assume that they would shrug off Trump using profanity at his rallies and that may not be the case. Cruz knows his audience a lot better than I do and he thought the prudent move was to pull it. Is he right or wrong?

Exit question: Lindsay’s now guaranteed to end up in a Trump ad, probably talking about how no one likes Cruz, right?

THIS is why they pulled the ad:

‘Ted Cruz’s Latest Ad Features A Porn Star’

(“Seconds before this story was published, the Cruz campaign removed the ad from YouTube.”)

http://dailycaller.com/2016/02/11/does-ted-cruzs-latest-ad-feature-a-porn-star/

Seriously – the media was running with the “PORN” angle (with no mention of the “softcore” aspect) in order to damage Cruz (this would have also damaged Amy Lindsay) – with headlines like that, what exactly was ‘Team Cruz’ supposed to do? The headlines are worse than the actual facts of the story, but most folks don’t read past the headline.

Pork-Chop on February 12, 2016 at 1:52 PM

You can be certain that if Cruz ends up being the nominee the Democrats will play the ‘hired a porn star for a commercial’ angle to the hilt in the more socially conservative areas of the country.

And in the more liberal areas, they’ll hit the angle of Cruz being a ‘right-wing moralist who wants to impose his views on everybody’, and hold up Amy Lindasy as an example of the extreme punitive behavior of Cruz and his supporters.

Either way you choose to go with the ad, you’re going to get flamed by both sides to some degree.

hal_mccombs on February 12, 2016 at 3:00 PM

He should not have pulled the ad.

Now it’s open season on every individual who has been less than perfect that has somehow crossed the shadow of a self-labeled conservative.

For those who think that the mere presence of a former soft core pr0n star’s appearance in a political ad will sway a significant number of voters away from a candidate, I say that they would have been also equally swayed by a yard sign, newspaper endorsement, celebrity attaboy, etc.

Speaking for myself, I don’t know ONE individual who was 100% committed to a candidate, who then was suddenly flipped by the irresistible magnitude of an external influence such as a yard sign, newspaper endorsement, celebrity attaboy, or in this case, the presence (or non-presence) of a former soft core porn actress.

I am more worried about the policy and decision makers around a candidate for POTUS than I am about an obscure actor/actress in a commercial that means next to nada to me. That goes for any candidate from any party.

An aside: When Palin endorsed Trump, I was highly disappointed in her decision, but I didn’t lose my mind over it. My preference would have been for her to hold any and all favoritisms until after the primary season, but that is just moi. That said, the world kept turning, and I got over it.

I wish Ms. Lindsay well, hoping that her life is defined by totality of her actions, and not the ones from her past.

Hmmm, makes me wonder where mine was built. Oh well, it’s still a great system. Only unknown now for me is durability and longevity. The Carrier is the quietest system I’ve had and with it’s variable speed air handler it keeps my entire home at a level consistent temperature without hot or cold spots and the air coming out of the vents is actually warm in heating mode. A plus for any heat pump system.

Oldnuke on February 12, 2016 at 3:26 PM

As others may have mentioned. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. A comment I made from an earlier thread. For what it’s worth in providing you all a small bit of insight.

Cruz has a very good ad team in place. This is not the first truly good spot they produced. Now, just a wee bit of info for all of you who are trying so desperately to make a big deal out of the porn talent. In the world of a production, a production company sends out what is commonly refereed to as a casting call. Talent these days comes from a wide variety of sources. Some from talent agency’s that specialize in “professionals” and this group has legal restrictions when it comes to “usage”. The newer trend is for smaller talent shops to supply talent at a better price by rounding up “non professional” talent for these casting calls. Better price because usage is not considered. I should think a political organization such as Cruz’s is being as frugal as possible in the production of these spots. The creatives pick those from the call those that they feel have the look or voice they seek for a given set of goals they wish to accomplish. Having been involved with these calls, hundreds of them actually, I can tell you we have never vetted any of them. In this instance, many will say, you have to vet these folks. Not true, seldom done if ever. The Cruz team reacted quickly and decisively once the talent info came to light. It is a, excuse the cliche’, a nothing burger. Y’all run with it though, that a sharp pair of scissors and some ice and you should be fine. ; )

Very stupid reaction from the Cruz camp. I wonder if Ted himself decided that. This is the 3rd misstep from Cruz in a few weeks that has made it hard for me to defend him to people who really want to want to support him for his issue positions but have a problem with him personally.

He needs to hire me to follow him around and growl, “Lighten up, Francis” whenever he thinks about doing something so uptight and reactive.

Per the first part of your comment.

You are frugal with marketing/advertising budgets when finances force you to do a soft roll out. Politics do better with a hard roll out.

No matter how good the marketing, if the dog won’t eat the dog food it don’t matter. Products are somewhat easy to fix with enough time and money, politicians not so much.

I also never vetted talent, but they were of a known quality and no need.

The public will be judge and jury.

I am a Cruz supporter but this is bullsh*t pulling a add because one of the actors in a past life not even current was employed in porn, soft porn at that. WTF

This went from nothing to a new whipping stick carved and picked by Cruz himself for the left to whip him with. The fuddy duddy republican thumper that hates all who are not perfect blah blah blah attack line. Bad move Cruz is usually much more on the ball than that, disappointed.

I don’t know if anywhere I read she describes herself as having done any kind of porn. I think that tag might have been slapped on by the media.
Looking at her filmography, it’s more like maybe a few “R rated” items, of the type that might be on late-night cable. Pretty much typical B-starlet stuff.

At any rate she certainly seems like a bright, thoughtful and gracious person, going by her interview with Jake Tapper.

I saw some images featuring some schwantz and explicit schtupping. I wouldn’t call that soft porn.

P.S. Thanks Donald for making Yiddish cool again!

MJBrutus on February 12, 2016 at 4:08 PM

I did some hard core research on this and determined those particular pics are as Photoshloped as Zero’s birth certificate. She did the boobs and butt simulated sex stuff only from what I can see.

How many things does Ted Cruz not know?

He didn’t know he was a Canadian
He didn’t know his NRSC was smearing Chris McDaniel
He didn’t know his staffers were lying about Carson
He didn’t know McConnell was lying to him about TPA or Corker
He didn’t know his actress was a porn star

Ted Cruz doesn’t know a lot.

fossten on February 12, 2016 at 1:47 PM

You left out that he didn’t know his Goldman Sachs loan was not properly filed. For being so smart and Harvard educated, he really does feign “I didn’t know” a LOT.

Standard-bearers for the right have an overreaching, preening piety problem. Kick that to the curb, then we’ll talk.

MJBrutus on February 12, 2016 at 8:01 PM

Nothing wrong with a jeweler’s loupe when a female body needs close examination. But the “Celebrity Fakes” watermarks did kind of give it away. Too bad it took me so long to find them!

Serious Drivel on February 12, 2016 at 8:10 PM

Wise to pull the ad because the lame stream media would not have let it go. Real Christians believe in repentance and forgiveness but others not so much.

Classic projection. I am already on record in this thread saying it was probably a mistake to pull the ad. Try again. What is your “evidence” again?

Classic projection.

You’ve already taken the conversation off the rails by this false statement, and until I see that you know how to rectify your error, I won’t indulge you.

And further insults aren’t going to get me to bend my will to yours, you undserstand? LOL :D

It is your assertion that I think pulling ad is a sign he’s a strong man. That is demonstrably false as shown in this thread, and a projection of your idea of something or other onto me. Deny it if you like, but it only makes you look more foolish than you already do.

You have no evidence. You are just pissing uphill and hoping it won’t flow back onto your shoes.

In truth, you’re a smug, argumentative a$$hole with an entitlement mentality, who can’t follow directions and is also unaware of his failings, which indicates you’re (far) too stupid for me… Have fun continuing to try to establish your “superiority” while I laugh at you, ok? LOL :D

Anti-ControI on February 12, 2016 at 10:21 PM

Cowardly move by Cruz, but predictable.

cimbri on February 12, 2016 at 10:36 PM

I’m a Cruz supporter, and I think it make him look kind of weak.

libfreesMom on February 12, 2016 at 1:28 PM

Sure, he could have been bold, defended her, and talked about how she had became conservative. She’s from a right wing family, open carry proponents, etc.

Cruz can’t win the election because his support is way too narrow. This is yet more proof of that.

cimbri on February 12, 2016 at 10:47 PM

Another reason for any libertarian to NOT vote for Ted Cruz. We don’t appreciate discrimination against adult actresses.

TBSchemer on February 12, 2016 at 11:49 PM

Bad campaign decisions. Nothing wrong with the ad, just cowardly behavior in the face of the media. No idea why they felt any impulse to backtrack. The Carson flap wasn’t their fault, but they apologized and kept the media circus fueled. What is president Cruz going to do when the media picks another fight?

virgo on February 13, 2016 at 2:52 AM

So the girl who appeared in soft porn shoots was too much for Cruz, but he’s fine with Mike Bickle?

rongoodman on February 13, 2016 at 7:59 AM

I think the best thing that Cruz can do is to have an evangelical Christian that he trusts acting as a “screener”, more or less, (ph)or the choices made by his campaign team.

“Exit question: Lindsay’s now guaranteed to end up in a Trump ad, probably talking about how no one likes Cruz, right?”
Not necessarily if she’s a genuine Christian for whom Jesus alone is ultimate, but how anyone with a functioning brain can possibly even consider the lawless, fascist Trump obscenity for anything for any “reason” whatsoever is utterly beyond me.

russedav on February 13, 2016 at 10:45 AM

Wait — is there an actress that has not done soft core porn?

Kenosha Kid on February 13, 2016 at 11:07 AM

It’s better to support Trump, who has banged soft core porn types while he was married.

I dont care who the actress was. Leave her out of this.

I despise political ads using paid actors to pose as ‘real citizens’

Lindsay played a woman who tells another group member, “Maybe you should vote for more than just a pretty face next time.”

You want a testimonial, get a real personal testimonial in your ad, dont pay someone to read a script

And, you’re not going to try to prove I don’t have any evidence? Now, why might that be, huh?

weasel
n:
1. a deceitful or treacherous person
2. a cunning, sneaky person

v.i.:
1. to evade an obligation, duty, or the like; renege
2. to use weasel words; be ambiguous; mislead
3. achieve something by use of cunning or deceit

ROFL! :D

This should be settled by the definitive anus test. If this woman’s anus has been displayed publicly her dismissal is warranted . If not, this is unjust.

The closest Rosie has been to “soft core” porn, was her part as an under-cover police detective, in “Exit To Eden”.
