Conservative porn star tossed from TPUSA summit, prompts fiery debate on values, inclusion

Powered by Topple

There may be more to meet the eye than first appears in Brandi Love being tossed out of the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit, but one thing is not in dispute, she has fully capitalized on the turn of events by billing herself a cancel culture victim.

Then again, that may not be all that surprising, given that Love bills herself online as the “Conservative Pornstar who Writes for The Federalist.”

Love, whose real name is Tracey Lynn Livermore, is an adult film actress and a self-described conservative Republican who supported former President Donald Trump.

She shared her appearance Saturday at the TPUSA event, a youth conference with 15- and 16-year-olds in attendance, on Twitter.

As seen below, Love was intent on drawing attention to herself, though her attire did manage to squeeze into acceptable bounds:

And while things appeared to be going swimmingly, Love would take to Twitter just after midnight to inform followers that she had been booted.

“Can’t make this s**t up lol!!” she tweeted, explaining that she just watched [TPUSA founder] Charlie Kirk, Dan Bongino, [Sen.] Rick Scott, and Kat Timpf “speak about freedom, censorship, how inclusive the “movement” is …etc… And then they had me thrown out of the Turning Point USA conference.”

“The Republican Party is broken,” she added, sharing a screenshot of the message she received notifying her that her invitation had been “revoked.” (** Language warning)

As seen above, no reason was stated but Love was told that she’d get a full refund for the cost of admission. As for pinning the decision on the Republican Party, the GOP was not involved in holding the event.

A writer for Salon, who was apparently in attendance to pan the conference, claimed there were “white nationalists in attendance trolling” Love. He also said “mainstream right-wingers are growing increasingly outraged” over TPUSA allowing her to attend the Tampa event “where minors are present.”

In a statement to the media, the organization explained the decision:

“The Student Action Summit is a youth conference with 15- and 16-year-olds in attendance. As a matter of policy, TPUSA does not allow adult entertainers, influencers, or brands to participate in its events designed for minors. This was not a decision intended to be unkind to anyone, but in the interest of the student attendees in attendance, and their thousands of concerned parents.”

 

In speaking with the Daily Caller, Love was clear this was an example of the cancel culture.

“It’s one of the more egregious examples of it. TPUSA literally opened the show talking about how we need to fight back against big tech censorship, cancel culture, the deterioration of our 1st Amendment etc.,” she said. “Charlie Kirk literally talked about making sacrifices as outspoken ‘conservatives.’ Something I’ve been for years at great risk and great loss. And then they expelled me. It’s hard to make that up. It’s a worst-case example of cancel culture.”

The adult film star asked how can conservatives expect to grow as a movement when they don’t seem to respect professions?

“I listened to Rush Limbaugh since 1995. I miss hearing him every day. I didn’t always agree with him,” Love said. “Near the end, he often spoke about how he believed the Republican Party needed to abandon the word conservative for something else. The word had become synonymous with negative connections. Enter Trump. Mr. Trump is not an ideologue. He’s obnoxious yes. I wish he wasn’t. But no matter what the left says, President Trump is a big tent Constitutionalist.”

“If TPUSA is the future, then the future is run by puritanical, fanatically devout Christians who will demand compliance or else,” she added. “That’s a recipe for a shrinking party.”

Matt Walsh, a respected conservative thinker, had lots to say about the evolution of conservative values, making a good argument about when to draw lines in the name of inclusion.

“A total abandonment of biological and moral truth. Full scale surrender. They have adopted positions that would have seemed radical even to liberals 30 years ago,” he tweeted.

He also said there are many other forums where Love could “listen and learn” other than a conference for conservative teenagers, in response to those who believed she should have been allowed to stay.

In another tweet, Walsh commented on claims she wasn’t at the event to push her porn.

“She had her porn stage name on her VIP badge, you idiots,” he tweeted. “Clearly using the event to promote her ‘business.’ I know you aren’t all as stupid as you’re pretending to be. I know you aren’t.

If you think that’s not significant before a youthful audience, search for Brandi Love on Twitter and you’ll get a full, uncensored dose of her talents before a camera — for a platform that loves to censor people, full-blown, graphic porn scenes are clearly not a high priority.

In the end, Love used the occasion to mock Charlie Kirk and sell t-shirts:
