Liberals Are Outraged At Taylor Swift Because She Won’t Denounce Donald Trump

For the left, it is absolutely unacceptable to remain neutral on politics. Taylor Swift has not taken a loud and public stance on politics and it’s driving liberals insane. They need to have their views validated by celebrities and Swift is not complying. How dare she?

The Weird Campaign to Get Taylor Swift to Denounce Donald Trump

Late last month, amid another week of controversies and Twitter-induced firestorms from the president of the United States, one of the world’s most widely read newspapers thundered at … Taylor Swift.

“In the year since Donald Trump was elected, the entertainment world has been largely united in its disdain for his presidency,” the Guardian, a left-leaning British paper, wrote in a bizarre, unsigned editorial. “But a notable voice has been missing from the chorus: that of Taylor Swift, the world’s biggest pop star. Her silence is striking, highlighting the parallels between the singer and the president: their adept use of social media to foster a diehard support base; their solipsism; their laser focus on the bottom line; their support among the ‘alt-right.’”

The paper went on to detail a raft of complaints about Swift. That her songs “echo Mr Trump’s obsession with petty score-settling in their repeated references to her celebrity feuds, or report in painstaking detail on her failed romantic relationships.” How she has “directed her extraordinary self-promotional skills towards cultivating a dedicated and emotional army of followers.” That her coterie of friends and hangers-on is “largely thin, white and wealthy.”

Who cares what Swift thinks about politics? She’s an entertainer!
