Wingnuttia In Mourning

View this post on Instagram

I’m writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which I’ll be voting in the state of Tennessee. 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. 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. I cannot vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love. Running for Senate in the state of Tennessee is a woman named Marsha Blackburn. As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn. Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me. She voted against equal pay for women. She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape. She believes businesses have a right to refuse service to gay couples. She also believes they should not have the right to marry. These are not MY Tennessee values. I will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives. Please, please educate yourself on the candidates running in your state and vote based on who most closely represents your values. For a lot of us, we may never find a candidate or party with whom we agree 100% on every issue, but we have to vote anyway. So many intelligent, thoughtful, self-possessed people have turned 18 in the past two years and now have the right and privilege to make their vote count. But first you need to register, which is quick and easy to do. October 9th is the LAST DAY to register to vote in the state of TN. Go to vote.org and you can find all the info. Happy Voting! 🗳😃🌈

A post shared by Taylor Swift (@taylorswift) on

More reaction from Wingnuttia about Swift: Republicans, White Nationalists Fume Over Taylor Swift’s Senate Endorsement, but his is my favorite:

On the website 4chan, where a community of White nationalists have embraced Swift as an “Aryan queen” whose political silence was a tacit admission of racist sympathies, several users floated similar theories. “That looks so ghost written. Ever notice how every celebrity seems to be reciting the same exact script and even use the same wording,” one user wrote. Another added: “All PR nonsense, she just doesn’t want to be labeled a white nationalist. Probably got paid to say all this.”

Users were nonetheless stricken by the development. “OUR GIRL no more,” one posted. “They took her from us and turned her into one of their brain dead zombies,” another wrote.

I’m guessing that Kleenex sales in Possum Hollar are gonna suffer. They’ll have to return to Ann Coulter, and well, who wants that?

To which a lonely spitball was launched:

    It’s really nice to see People with followers come out against the new regime. I understand she has caused some to even register to vote. I certainly encourage that.
    How anyone can stand by is beyond me

    Somebody must have shown her screenshots from 4chan, and she nipped that shit in the bud.

    Amen to increasing the youth information and voting numbers! Let’s add those great Parkland young people and their message to the youth mix and get those registration numbers way up. If they want a say in their lives and their future, now is the time.

    Brilliant trolling there, TG! Another GOP misfire has now made the derogatory and almost archaic term ‘ivory tower’ into something millennials everywhere will identify as really cool.

      That’s the funny thing, by attacking Swift, they make voting seem almost rebellious and, therefore, a lot cooler.

    Paid? Her income is a million dollars a day. Not very likely she needs to write political stuff she doesn’t believe in for a bit of extra pocket money.
