Mimi Miyagi, de estrella del porno a candidata

Ya advertimos en post anteriores que el mundo del cine porno no casa demasiado bien con el socialismo. Melody Damayo, "Mimi Miyagi", nació en Filipinas en 1973 dentro de una familia conservadora que 6 años más tarde emigró a los EEUU. A los 18 años de edad comenzó su carrera dentro del cine para adultos adoptando su nombre artístico. Mimi no llegó a triunfar en el cine X a la altura de otras figuras, pero encontró en la red de redes el medio ideal para triunfar, creando una exitosa web (+18) dedicada a las bellezas orientales que se ha convertido en una de las más visitadas de internet. En el año 2006 Mimi sorprendió a propios y extraños anunciando su afiliación al partido republicano y presentándose como candidata a gobernadora por Nevada. Muchos pensaron que se trataba de una provocación o de un capricho, pero en entrevistas como la que reproducimos podemos ver la seriedad de las ideas de Mimi y su compromiso con la libertad individual. De hecho, tras fracasar en su aventura republicano, Miyagi se ha afiliado al Partido Liberal americano para continuar con su carrera política sin abandonar la derecha.
On May 12, 2006, she filed as a Republican gubernatorial candidate in the state of Nevada, under her birth name, Melody Damayo. "I have nothing left to hide, everybody has seen all of me already." she said. One of her slogan was "I'm bare and honest at all times.[3]" On May 16, 2006, her campaign was endorsed by Wonkette.[4]
She was criticized for running for such a position, given her past profession[citation needed]. However, she claimed that she was entirely out of the business and no longer receives royalties from her work. She faced four other Republican candidates in the primary held on August 15, 2006, and was defeated by a wide margin by Jim Gibbons.[5] After her loss in the primaries, she joined the Libertarian Party.

John Hawkins: When did you start getting into politics and what drew you to the Republican Party? Mimi Miyagi: I am an avid supporter of bearing arms since 2001....I love the people in the (Republican Party). I have been to some of the Democratic parties here and there, but the positivity, the upbeat attitude of the Republicans was more for me.
John Hawkins: So, you kind of thought the Democrats were pessimistic and negative?
Mimi Miyagi: ...I don't like all the mudslinging and a lot of the things they say about the Republicans really (aren't) true. The Republican Party is about individualism, it's about freedom, it's about lowering taxes. That is something I truly believe in.
John Hawkins: In your interview with Philippine news online, you said that, "The Republican Party has embraced me. I've been involved with them since 2004, you know, in the grassroots campaign for Bush."Have you gone to Republican Party events and if so, what kind of reaction do you get there?
Mimi Miyagi: Well, when I was going to them in 2004, nobody knew what I did as a profession. I didn't want to make it a hindrance to the campaign...and I didn't want people to act differently towards me. I felt that I was there for a purpose, ...to help out as a volunteer, so I needed to stay on the outskirts. ...I just didn't reveal it, it didn't make sense to...
John Hawkins: ...Well, it's out in the open now and I noticed on your page, you said you're getting a lot of support from the Clark County Republican Party.
Mimi Miyagi: Actually, they threw me my first fundraiser last Friday night...It really, truly shows the support of the Republican officials that came to my party and the other candidates that were there to support me. I am going to support them, too. [...]
John Hawkins: Mary Carey, another porn star who ran for governor of California, was also a Republican. Is that common in the porn industry? Are a lot of porn stars Republicans?
Mimi Miyagi: ...The Republican Party is about individualism and people who support free speech...it only makes sense to fall into that Party....The adult industry is a growing enterprise on its own and the GOP, ...they state that free enterprise is something that they support.
John Hawkins: Yeah, that makes sense...so there are a lot of other Republican porn stars or maybe they're not all that into politics one way or the other?
Mimi Miyagi: There are a few, (but) I think a lot of them don't get too involved with politics because they're so busy shooting, making movies, and whatnot. There (are) a few of us that are highly political activists...
John Hawkins: One last question: tell me who'd you'd like to see as president in 2008?
Mimi Miyagi: Giuliani! I love Rudi. You know, that man has changed New York City so dramatically and I applaud him...for that. Being able to transform an area that was so high in crime to what it is today, is amazing.
