Nicki Minaj‘s new song, “Anaconda,” broke the 24-hour view record (19.6 million views) this month, surpassing Miley Cyrus sitting naked on a wrecking ball in 2013. In the promotional shot for “Anaconda,” Minaj is positioned as if she is defecating. Her bare buttocks look like two over-inflated balloons about to pop. While there is some debate about whether Minaj’s buttocks have been augmented either by silicone injection or implant, the fact remains that an increasing number of women are being driven to such folly with dangerous procedures.
Minaj told ABC news that her new video had a bigger message than her derriere:
“I wanted to reinstate something. Because of the shift in pop culture, even hip-hop men are really glorifying the less curvy body. I wanted to say ‘Hey ladies, you’re beautiful. Hopefully, this changes things and maybe it won’t change things, but I love it.”
Who would have thought Minaj’s explicit pornographic filth would have had such a high and noble aim? Just when you think things couldn’t get any worse, along comes “Anaconda”…a video to be appreciated even by the most hardened pornography addict, but sure to raise the self-esteem of curvy girls everywhere.
In a similar manner, Beyoncé used her recent appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMA’s) to promote feminism: a type of feminism which apparently is meant to inspire a greater respect for women who grind on stage, simulate the sex act and sing “bow down bitches” over and over again. Of course Beyoncé is the same woman who worked with Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign, no doubt causing tens of thousands of American children to search for their new hero on YouTube where she performs any number of overtly sexual acts.
Beyoncé’s definition of feminism was immediately questioned on social media.
Not to be outshined by her contemporary patricians working tirelessly for the betterment of mankind, Miley Cyrus picked up a young, attractive homeless man named Jesse for her own personal exploitation. She met him through an organization called My Friend’s Place, which reportedly “helps homeless youth find shelter, healthcare and education.” After winning a VMA award for her video “Sexy Girl,” Cyrus put her hands on Jesse’s shoulders and marched her vassal forward to accept it on her behalf. Listening to his acceptance speech, she sat propped up in front of the audience, putting on a dramatic performance as she wiped tears from her eyes.
What a long way we’ve come since a Puritan — excited to see his wife after being apart for three years — kissed her on the Sabbath day and subsequently spent two hours in the stocks for breaking recognized laws regarding the Sabbath.
Yes, some of those laws were stupid. But I can’t help but think how much these modern whores would benefit from a few hours in the stocks every time they released their contagion to the world.
And the old adage “You don’t have to watch it,” doesn’t cut it for me anymore. We are watching it – by the millions. If you aren’t watching it, you can count on the fact that your spouse, kids or neighbors are. Somewhere, right now, someone is watching Nicki Minaj twitch her buttocks in the same way some people can twitch their ears. For many of them, it will be a gateway video to an addiction that can last a lifetime and destroy families.
Sexting and porn have become part of everyday life for teens in particular. A recent poll by the Institute of Public Policy Research found that “many older teenagers even blame adults for failing to do enough to discourage them from rushing into sex or counter the influence of pornography.”
The worst part is that performers like Beyoncé, Minaj and Cyrus don’t even consider what they’re doing pornography. It’s as if covering one’s nipples or genitalia is the only prerequisite to wholesome, family entertainment – and judging by their success, the majority of Americans agree.
Most disappointing of all is that these performers are not ostracized by society, but are instead rewarded with fawning fans, money, and lavish lifestyles.
Under the false guise of “liberating women,” these “entertainers” (and others like them) are instead causing women to be looked at as sexual objects only. With sex trafficking, pornography addiction, and rapes on the rise – in America and worldwide – you’d think these three whores of Babylon, (I’m taking liberty with the phrase), might take a moment to reevaluate their immoral actions. They won’t of course, because the sad fact is that they have no morals and their greatest ambition is to ensure that no one else does either. What a proud revolution they are leading…marching straight into the fires of hell.
“But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully…Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient…For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind…and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine…(Excerpt from 1 Timothy 1)”
