Phony Outrage & Hyperbole: Tackery Sour (Zachary Sire) Strikes Again
On Friday blogger Zachary Sire posted a rant on TheSword.com where he dramatically proclaimed that “It’s Time For ‘Men Of Color Blog’ To Shut Down“, in the article he sights recent comments made by Victor Hoff of the MOC blog about Diesel Washington being a “default black porn actor” as reasons for his furious outrage.
He begins by ridiculing Hoff for apologizing to Diesel for the comment before inferring there’s something wrong with a white guy having a blog about “men of color”.
“Yesterday, blogger Victor Hoff called Diesel Washington a “default black porn actor.” Today, he’s apologized! What a mess.”
First of all, what’s wrong with the man apologizing if he felt like he said something wrong? Personally I don’t take issue with the statement because Diesel Washington (Douche Bag Washingturd) is the default black pornstar, the token, the minstrel of mainstream gay porn. How else do you explain the fact that he has been nominated for several awards this year despite only having one movie, ‘SteamWorks‘ by Raging Stallion Studios/AEBN, which achieved modest success at best? I think it sold a few dozen copies. His latest nominations are NOT based on talent or relevancy but rather tokenism; nominating the black guy with name recognition in a year when no one is hiring him can’t be explained any other way. Its a way for award committees to cover their asses and look like their main motives aren’t just to celebrate white males at the exclusion of others. Nothing more, nothing less. If it were based on talent and visibility there would be a variety of black nominees, guys who are actually working and putting out some good shit. Secondly, if there’s nothing wrong with Victor Hoff’s being Caucasian why did you mention it? The innuendo is très apparente. Why is it wrong for Victor, a white man, to offer his analysis on racial insensitivity as it relates to black men (and others) in gay porn but it’s okay for Miss Sire (Zachary) to post an article where she offers her opinions on the very same subject? Seems like a double standard to me.
He then goes on to question whether Victor Hoff’s blog has ever been serious about combatting racism.
“Someone who defines himself as being against racism in porn probably doesn’t serve his cause very well by classifying one of the rare successful black porn actors working today as “default.” Is this someone who is serious about fighting racial stereotypes? Has Men Of Color Blog ever been a blog that was serious about combatting racism? It’s mostly been a blog about calling people names and picking fights, and that’s fine! Blogs are for fighting”
Now I’m laughing. Is this bitch serious? Zach Sire of ALL the bullshit bloggers in the world, is notorious for using The Sword blog to ax grind his fellow porn bloggers from other web sites, porn stars with whom he has personal differences with and even some of the people who post comments. He has brought his bullshit and drama from Unzipped over to The Sword and Tim Valenti (owner of Naked Sword) doesn’t give a shit about it because he sure hasn’t bothered to check the situation yet…. And who does Zachary Sire think he’s fooling with his feigned anger and outrage over something he deems to be racially insensitive towards blacks? This is coming from the same man who has twice used images of the Klu Klux Klan and burning crosses as illustrations that accompanied articles that deal with black men or those who blog about them; clearly he lacks even a nano-shred of creditability on this issue.
Things get interesting once he focuses his attention on me through direct and indirect comments in reference to Victor Hoff’s opine on black bloggers he thought deserved a nomination by Cybersocket this year (“Three great bloggers not on the list immediately come to mind but they were nowhere to be found: Angel Cruz, Tre Xavier, Chase Coxxx.” -Victor Hoff)
“Blogs are also a great way to promote whatever crazy train has hitched itself to your wagon (whoa, mixed metaphor):” -Zachery Sire
Whoa, a convoluted metaphor. If anyone knows about hitching their wagon to a crazy train it would be Zach, How else do you explain his bizarre alliance with Diesel Washington? Nearly every week there is a new and totally unnecessary post on The Sword concerning Diesel even though he’s spent the last year being an old, bitter, out of work, shit starting, rambling blogger and not much else. Shoving him down our throats won’t make us love him. I on the other hand, have not hitched my wagon to anyone’s train. In the past I have traded words and unflattering opinions with the MOC blog and when asked, I declined the opportunity to write for the website so this accusation makes no sense. I’m cool with Victor and Tre, but don’t know either of them – we have tweeted each other a few times and yes, Angel Cruz is my online buddy that I chat with often, but have also never met; we are not members of the Douche Bag Washingturd hate club and we are not a packaged deal or some sort of organized trio… Our conflict started when you accused me of being a nobody who spoke ill of your idol Mr. Washington as a way to get attention… Carry water much you shameless shill???
“Three “great” bloggers, whose only claim to “greatness” has been, coincidentally, hating Diesel Washington. (Google them if you care.) And that’s fine, too! Nobody has to like Diesel.”
My only claim to “greatness” this year has been the fact that every single video that I’ve been featured in has spent time on AEBN’s top ten ‘Most Watched’ list and unlike other charts, AEBN is the largest VOD theater in the world. My video Anon: Anonymous Sex Addicts, spent about 3 months in the #1 slot. As far as black performers go, I have had more #1 titles this year than any other (featured in & on the cover of the current #2 Most Watched movie); by most standards that would be considered great.
If hating Diesel were grounds for invalidation you’d have to add a lot more names to the list of detractors. Let’s face it, none of the rest of us will ever love that douche bag the way that you do Zach so give it a rest and let it go. Angel Cruz has every reason to dislike a guy with whom he sought out as a potential mentor, only to be bullied and ridiculed by that person for knowing what kind of image he wanted to portray in porn. As for me, I will ALWAYS reserve the right to tell it like it is, even when that includes making comments about a 40 something year old bipolar loser who brings his mother to porn award shows in a desperate attempt for attention. Moving on.
Zachy boy goes in for the final assult.
“But here’s a tip for Hoff and whoever has been gullible enough to take him seriously: The packaging of personality conflicts, jealousy, and cries for attention under the guise of “That’s Racist!” isn’t just disingenuous, it undermines the cause you’re supposedly fighting for. In fact, marginalizing someone by attributing their success to being a “default black porn actor” is…racist. Or, at least, racially insensitive.”
I’m willing to bet the horse, Porsche & farm that if you talk to Brent Corrigan this week I’m sure he’d blame a personality conflict as the reason Zach went on an unprovoked attack against him on The Sword, Zach’s adversarial relationships are well documented. A commenter to one of my previous posts has this to say about Zach:
“Just discuss Zach Sires amongst fellow bloggers and you will get an education. The creep has pissed everyone off, his personal vendettas front and center from Zach Randall and Derek Rivero, yourself, MOC Blogs Victor a couple of east coast journos.
Then we have the personal campaign of innuendo and destruction against Paul Bookstabber all to get him fired at The Sword so he could move into that dead carcass.
Not that Paul has many friends.
Zach is a worse than slime, more like cancerous.”
Well said my friend, well said. I think it’s pretty dickish to post an article on your website blasting people then block them from being able to rebut your claims and defend themselves. It’s even worse to trump up a campaign of fake outrage at perceived racism when your true motives are revenge and retaliation against those who either blogged about and/or contacted Tim Valenti to complain about your racially tone deaf use of inflammatory images on TheSword.com. If Victor Hoff should pack up and close shop for feeling the need to apologize to a black man for something he said, then you should be fired from The Sword so you can add San Francisco to your list of cities (LA & NYC) where your crappy journalism skills failed miserably. You’ll be free to return to SoCal to sleep on the sofa of Jewel the drag queen, if she’ll still have you. Your fake campaigns and purposeful misrepresentation of others is motivated by petty dramas, silly rivalries, favoritism, and personal vendettas. The way you attempt to spin shit reminds me a lot of Karl Rove and Andrew Breitbart, your truth has nothing to do with reality and you are not to be trusted. There’s nothing respectable about you or the negativity that follows your every move. In fact, I’m quite sure the reason that you blog about porn is so that you can have a reason to be around porn performers, it’s your all access card. How many porn stars would acknowledge your existence if you didn’t porn blog for a living? I’ve heard the rumors about your quid pro quo when it comes to favorable coverage.
As stupid as I make you look by pointing out the obvious holes in your logic, it’s no wonder my ass is blocked from posting comments on The Sword. It’s a huge compliment for me to know that you’re afraid to tango with a worthy opponent. PS: I’ll blog about your precious pet monkey tomorrow and i’ll be sure to set his ass straight, trust and believe.
