Steven Spielberg’s Weimar America

If you grew up in the 1980s, Steven Spielberg’s movies articulated the American dream. It has come to this with one of his children. Excerpts:

Steven Spielberg’s daughter Mikaela has launched a new career as an adult entertainer, The Sun can reveal.

In an exclusive interview Mikaela Spielberg, 23, who was adopted as a baby by the legendary film director and his wife Kate Capshaw, told how she has already started self producing solo porn videos – and says she would love to land a job as a dancer in a strip club once she obtains her sex worker license.

More:

Mikaela, who speaks to her parents regularly, broke the news to them via FaceTime at the weekend and said they were “intrigued” but “not upset”.

Describing herself as a “sexual creature” she told The Sun: “I got really tired of not being able to capitalize on my body and frankly, I got really tired of being told to hate my body.

“And I also just got tired of working day to day in a way that wasn’t satisfying my soul.

“I feel like doing this kind of work, I’m able to ‘satisfy’ other people, but that feels good because it’s not in a way that makes me feel violated.”

The mind boggles. It goes on:

She wrote: “I just launched my self produced adult entertainment career. Safe, sane, consensual is the goal y’all.

“My body, my life, my income, my choice. I owe not a single person my autonomy or virtue just because of a name.”

She admits that she was sexually abused, though not by anyone in her family, and concedes that she has “borderline personality disorder.”

Of her childhood, Mlle Spielberg, 23, says, “I was spoiled, but responsibly.” Which is about the most rich-girl thing anyone can say these days, I guess.

The American dream, 2020. She calls her new life as a porn star “empowering,” and says that when she broke the news to her parents last weekend, they were “intrigued” but “not upset.”

Those poor people, the Spielbergs. She shames her family. My guess is that they are really upset, and doing their best not to alienate their crazy, self-destructive kid.

Still, what a parable about Weimar America: Steven Spielberg’s daughter, with every privilege in the world, turns herself into a porn star.

This afternoon, I received a long, detailed e-mail from a young man who is not religious — in fact, he left the Christianity of his youth when he came out as gay — and who is working in Spielberg’s industry. He is deeply closeted as a conservative. In fact, the deep and constant spite he encounters daily for people like his family has driven him to the Right. I have asked him for permission to share his e-mail, with his name (I checked him out online — he is legit) and identifying details removed. It’s an incredible story. A man like that has to live outwardly as Havel’s greengrocer (he compared himself to that figure — the man who has to put a “Workers of the World, Unite” sign in his shop window to avoid trouble, even though he hates communism); meanwhile, Mikaela Spielberg masturbates on camera to please masturbating scumbags, and she will no doubt be celebrated.

This is a sick, sick culture, and it deserves to be destroyed.
