Taylor Swift was one of the few celebrities who stayed out of politics and stuck to entertaining people. Well, not anymore. Swift just told many of her conservative fans to “f*ck off” as she blasted her hardcore leftist beliefs. The pop singer bent to the screaming leftist mob instead of staying out of the political arena. The 28-year-old Grammy winner immediately regretted it as her angry fans made her cry buckets of liberal tears. Don’t miss this.
Taylor Swift proved she is no better than the Hollywood crowd who are constantly bashing conservatives and pushing political correctness when she decided to break her silence over the weekend. Swift shocked her fans, many who are supporters of President Donald Trump, with an ill-advised Instagram post.
Breitbart reports, “Pop superstar Taylor Swift formally endorsed Democratic candidate Phil Bredesen over Republican candidate Marsha Blackburn in the upcoming midterm Senate election in her home state of Tennessee, describing herself as ‘appalled’ and ‘terrified’ by Blackburn’s policies.”
In a long Instagram post, the 28-year-old singer said that certain events in her life had led to reveal her own political leanings, such as her belief that “systematic racism” in America remains “terrifying, sickening, and prevalent.”
“I’m writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which I’ll be voting in the state of Tennessee,” Taylor Swift wrote. “In the past, I’ve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now.”
“I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country,” the Grammy-winner continued. “I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent.”
Wow, Swift has lost it. She must be watching too many episodes of The View. The pop star sounds just like Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar, spewing nonsense not based in fact and reality. The “Shake It Off” singer went on to trash GOP Senator Marcia Blackburn, who is loved by Tennesseans. Swift endorsed Democrat Phil Bredesen who has a horrendous record. Well, she should be crying buckets of liberal tears as her fans reject her newfound political activism.
The backlash to Swift’s Instagram post happened immediately. Ann Coulter tweeted, “Taylor Swift might want to get an agent who’s more historically literate.”

Exactly why no one worth their sand in a political conversation cares what a celebrity thinks… Theyre just people. But because she made some popular music, her undereducated, uninformed, poorly thought out tweet, is news.

Swift had enjoyed support from across the country by staying in her lane and sticking to entertaining us. But no more. Piers Morgan wrote a piece for the Daily Mail summing up how Taylor Swift succumbed to the leftist Twitter mob.
Morgan wrote, “Yet, as with Taylor Swift, this is what happens when the Twitter mob decides to issue summary execution to people it disagrees with. I’ve regularly been on the receiving end of similar cyberspace savagery and it can be an ugly and threatening experience.”
He added, “But the correct response is to tough it out, and stand by your opinions – not throw the towel in because a bunch of demented narrow-minded freaks hiding behind keyboards scream at you to think what they think.”
“Taylor Swift should have simply said: ‘I’m not apologizing for keeping my counsel about politics. I respect everyone’s right to free political speech, just as I expect people to respect my right not to express political speech,” Morgan concluded.
Whoever is Taylor Swift’s manager should be fired. If celebrities were successful in influencing elections, Hillary Clinton would have won in 2016. All this does is cause Taylor Swift to lose fans who actually have jobs to pay for her albums and spend money on going to her concerts. Now, she has alienated her home state of Tennessee and pissed off patriotic Americans across the country. What an idiotic move.
