What you're describing is part of the Cognitive Dissonance that is post-modern liberalism.
The only reason the left is opposed to voter ID is that it would serve to curtail their vote fraud activities. The singular excuse that they give for opposing it is that the requirement could possibly inconvenience someone. Naturally, being emotion-based creatures to begin with, they take that rationalization and hyperbolize it and suddenly it becomes "The Republicans seek to disenfranchise poor blacks from voting". If they put 1/100th of the effort to oppose voter ID into assisting those that they claim to be championing that issue could be put to bed overnight.
In virtually every other aspect of leftist "culture" the left are narcissistic camera hogs. Take a gander at u-toob (if your stomach can take it). Thousands and thousands of vanity videos featuring whiny liberals complaining, boasting, lying, and subverting any topic one can think about. Look at Facebook. It isn't enough to have a "yearbook photo" adorning their page - they prefer to have a picture of themselves peeing on the sidewalk or fellating a barnyard animal. If it is disgusting, you can find a leftist proudly showing it off.
Leftists will say (with a nasally sneer) "But you guys do it too" and I agree - the right is guilty of doing it enough to say that the right is guilty of doing it too. The phenomena is far too lopsided to give that serious consideration though. And there is a reason for that lopsidedness: the right discourages such behavior as shameful while the left encourages it as "self-expression".
I'm not camera-phobic - I just prefer not to inflict my ugly mug on sensitive audiences. The left seeks out the ugly and the garish, the disgusting and the degenerate and they parade it in the rest of our faces as electronic forms of poo-flinging.
The left being camera phobic? nah, I don't think so.
