Pop star Taylor Swift rose to prominence while being apolitical.
Coming up in the country genre, Swift had many fans on the Right.
But now Swift made one ridiculous statement that showed her true colors.
For years, Leftists have browbeaten celebrities into speaking up on politics and using their platform.
But only when they spout Left-wing talking points.
When a celebrity espouses pro-life beliefs or gun rights advocacy, the Left blackballs them into shutting up.
Liberals bullied Taylor Swift for a long time to kowtow to their beliefs, and she finally did.
After years of keeping her political beliefs close to the vest, Swift came out and endorsed Democrat Phil Bredesen for Senator in Tennessee in 2018.
But Swift’s endorsement didn’t amount to much, as Bredesen went down in flames to Republican challenger Marsha Blackburn.
That hasn’t deterred Swift one bit.
She’s now going all in on the Democrats, claiming she’s “obsessed” with Left-wing politics.
Swift said in a Rolling Stone interview:
“I keep trying to learn as much as I can about politics, and it’s become something I’m now obsessed with, whereas before, I was living in this sort of political ambivalence because the person I voted for had always won.”[…]
“I think a lot of people are like me, where they just didn’t really know that this could happen. But I’m just focused on the 2020 election. I’m really focused on it. I’m really focused on how I can help and not hinder. Because I also don’t want it to backfire again, because I do feel that the celebrity involvement with Hillary’s campaign was used against her in a lot of ways.”
Swift’s politics are predictably shallow, but she’s now being praised by the Left for her “bravery.”
Her new-found political views have even bled into her music, with her latest video “You Need To Calm Down” using negative caricatures of conservatives.
Swift has long had a reputation for being manipulative and calculating, and Trump-supporting musician Kid Rock believes that’s what’s behind her latest move to the hard Left.
Kid Rock tweeted, “Taylor Swift wants to be a Democrat because she wants to be in the movies…period.”
It’s yet to be seen if her gambit will pay off, but Kid Rock is certainly right that she’ll have to prove to be a loyal leftist in order to break into Hollywood.
