Penthouse CEO Addresses Recent Republican Party Amendment on Internet Porn

LOS ANGELES — The CEO of Penthouse Global Media has responded to the news that a Republican Party subcommittee has approved an amendment describing Internet porn as “a public health crisis.” The amendment was added to the draft party platform on Monday at preliminary meetings in Cleveland, where the Republican National Convention will be held from Jul. 18-21.

“As if on cue, we just published an article in the July/August 2016 issue of Penthouse Magazine about the flat-earth-society madness of Utah’s religion-fueled government and their claims that pornography is a ‘public health crisis,’” said Kelly Holland, CEO of Penthouse Global Media.

Holland said, “This is exactly the type of manipulative and dangerous rhetoric we expect from people who steamroll over the line dividing church and state: an LDS propaganda machine that believes masturbation should be a sex crime, every member of the LGBT community should be rehabilitated, and you’re better off dying as a rape victim than surviving as one.”

The amendment describing Internet porn as a “public health crisis” was proposed by North Carolina delegate Mary Frances Forrester.

Holland said, “We hoped the Republican Party had more sense than to embrace cult hysteria as a part of their national platform, but then again, they have a buffoon as the presumptive nominee. I think we should all be worried if Trump and the GOP win the election.”

Penthouse is one of the most enduring brands in adult entertainment. The late Bob Guccione, Sr. having founded Penthouse Magazine in 1965.
