'Porn industry comes out best from this race row'

It sounds almost too good to be true, but it is a story making a few gentle waves if only for the reason it casts a shadow of doubt over the usually amorous relationship between sex and politics.

The protagonist is Ina Groll, aka Kitty Blair, a former German porn actress, who turned her back on her adult film industry career and focused her attentions on fighting, among other things, immigration - and all of those benefit scrounging, job-stealing immigrants.

She went to the most obvious source of employment and joined the National Democratic Party (NPD), quickly settling in as the new face of hate.

For a while, everything was going swimmingly.

There were thousands of Facebook page likes, appearances outside election stations in outfits designed to entice male voters, and her own contribution to the party's publicity in the form of the slogan, “nationalism can be sexy too”.

She peppered her Facebook page with rages against all parasitic non-Germans-living-in-Germany, who are ruining the future of the country with their sneaky, leeching ways.

She even included  a photo of a seemingly unconscious homeless person at Mannheim Hauptbahnhof, leaving the photo open to various, ragingly intellectual comments about asozials.

Her determination to focus on a "policy of hatred" was going well.

Groll's fall

But Groll's tale took a turn when the NPD found out she had, at some point, had sex with a black man.

It happened in Kitty Discovers Sperm, her final film before quitting the industry, and when it was brought to the NPD's attention, the backlash was instant.

Suddenly the NPD took issue with her former career, despite previously being prepared to turn a blind eye for the greater good of the party.

A Facebook page was set up, calling for her removal from the party - the NPD could not be seen to associate with someone who both sold her body for money and had sex with a black man.

She was unceremoniously relieved of her duties, which appear to have been largely promotional, and booted from the party. The NPD wanted nothing to do with her.

There was to be further trouble for Groll. She now finds herself shunned from her former career as well.

Big players in the German porn industry are speaking out against Groll's political preferences and are saying she is not welcome back.

One man, Axel Schaffrath, described as an “insider” by the Daily Mail said: “The popular view is that she needs to be locked up, no one needs someone like her with her perverted view of the world.”

Schaffrath seems adamant Groll's porn career, should she want to return to it post political brush, is over.

“She certainly has no chance of filming any more porn movies after her Nazi links were revealed. I personally advised the producers to keep her as far away as possible, people like her need to be ignored by everyone," he said.

President of Berlin porn film company GGG, John Thompson, has spoken of a “unanimous decision” to boycott Groll.

There is a lot to unpack here. There is something for everyone in this very modern and yet strangely ageless story - karma, hubris, sex, tragedy, politics, a weird sense of justice.

A woman who chose to give her face to a political institution of ignorance and racism was sacked by an act of the very type of racism she was desperate to support and perpetuate.

But perhaps the most interesting thing about this entire debacle is the party that has come out looking the best is the porn industry.

The porn industry, relieved that for once it isn't coming under fire for its narrow, parochial portrayal of sex, womanhood, and female physicality and sexuality, took full advantage of the situation to shine.

Story continues below…

The porn industry, Thompson said, welcomes “participants with all skin colours and all nationalities, but we don't welcome Nazis”.

The porn industry welcomes many other things, but perhaps we should let it have its moment in the sun.

Spurned by politics for her porn and the porn industry for her politics, it remains unclear what Groll's next move will be.

What does remain clear, according to her Facebook page, is her policy of hate continues unabated, as she continues to rally against foreigners.

A recent post calls for a Germany free from immigration and for social parasites (the foreign ones) to return to their homes.

Groll demands it for the children of Germany's future. Let's hope her own future doesn't include availing herself of the very same government benefits she so despises others for taking.
