By all means GOP, please pick a fight with Taylor Swift. 🍿🍿

[-] [email protected] 93 points 6 months ago

As someone else has said before, Taylor Swift could tweet "Bring me the head of Ron Desantis" and he would be dead in a week.

He fumed in another all-caps post that "THE CHILDLESS, UNMARRIED ABORTION ARMY MOBILIZED BY BARBIE, TAYLOR SWIFT, AND TIKTOK" was "CRUSHING REPUBLICANS AT THE BALLOT BOX."

You are goddamn right it is.

I am inevitable.

[-] [email protected] 45 points 6 months ago

What I'm getting out of that is that he hates women.

Fascists create enemies out of everyone who isn't a fascist, then complain how they're surrounded by enemies.

conservatives once again upset that more people are voting.. because reality has a liberal bias.

[-] [email protected] 103 points 6 months ago* (last edited 6 months ago)

Yep, if "more people voting" makes you furious then you just might be reaching the level of mustache-twirling cartoon villainy.

Don't want to keep losing elections, conservatives? Adopt better policies. Nominate qualified candidates. And for fuck sake kick out the god damn nazis.

[-] Donjuanme 47 points 6 months ago

I would be interested to hear that they officially adopted any policies at all, it seems to be, "elect more of us so there are more of us so we can continue to try to elect more of us" the last person from the right wing I heard try to push a policy while running for office died 5 years ago

Not to mention they and their policies are trash.

GOP for the last 40 years: destroys the climate, job market, economy, education, and healthcare

“Did Taylor Swift do this?”

[-] [email protected] 49 points 6 months ago

Did I have bad policies?

No. It is the Swifties who are wrong!

Being upset that people were encouraged vote is admitting your ideas rely on suppression.

Well, after all it couldn't POSSIBLY their horrific policies, or their proud racism, or thier proud nationalism, or their hate for the LGBTQIA+, or their stance of abortion, or birth control, or wanting to outlaw divorce, or them wanting to leave people starving in the streets.
No, it must be some other thing causing their losses.

Kirk continued: "All the Swifties want is swift abortion. That's what they want. It's 100%."

"Taylor Swift is going to come out in the presidential election and she is going to mobilize her fans," Kirk warned his viewers on Wednesday, adding, "And we're going to be like, 'Oh wow, where did all these young, female voters come from?' We better have a plan for that."

Kirk acknowledging a) the party does not attempt to represent young women and b) the current plan is that they hopefully just don't vote.

[-] superduperenigma 78 points 6 months ago

No, the current plan is not that "they hopefully just don't vote." The plan is to actively prevent them from voting through various forms of suppression. They're not just sit around waiting to see what happens.

[-] [email protected] 51 points 6 months ago

TBH, actively trying to suppress voters isn't even the worst of it. The next step is making sure that it doesn't even matter if they do.

You know, like they already do. Source: Am in Ohio. There are already public statements from officials that they are trying to dilute/overrule/ignore the results of our vote to legalize abortion and weed. And that's even outside things like gerrymandering.

This quote from Posobiec is amazing:

"Republicans still haven't internalized that the Left promotes abortion as a pro-feminism issue. They aren't voting to kill babies, they're voting bc of feminist movies like Barbie and pop stars like Taylor Swift influencing an army of voters," Posobiec wrote.

If they are surprised about the connection between the abortion issue and women's rights... wow. Are they really racking their brains to figure out why "killing babies" is a popular position? How stupid are these people?

[-] madcaesar 71 points 6 months ago

Silly women wanting rights over their own bodies! Who do they think they are?? Men???

"If all these damn people would stop VOTING we might be able to get some of our 'highly popular' policy through"

[-] Daft_ish 30 points 6 months ago

Whats your highly popular policy?

"Well you see, it's based on this simple philosophy, fuck the poor."

It couldn't possibly be because of a heinously corrupt and out of touch platform that promises to hurt some people and help nobody, could it?

No. It's the Swifties who are to blame. Encouraging people to vote is liberal bias!

Or, now hear me out here, maybe it's just the fact that people have noticed that they overtly hate women and are nuttier than squirrel shit.

My conservative neighbor is convinced in a conspiracy theory that TSwifty dating Travis Kelce is a scheme to get people to get the COVID vaccine. I wish I was joking, but he's 100% serious.

Let's let them find out for themselves. I don't have much of an opinion in regard to Taylor, but this is fun news

[-] [email protected] 48 points 6 months ago

Her music is mid but if she manages to shift the electorate left even a few degrees I’ll be the biggest Swiftie ever. As a 45 year old divorced guy I realize this will be incredibly creepy but it’s worth it.

[-] assassin_aragorn 38 points 6 months ago* (last edited 6 months ago)

Oh she's absolutely shifted it. Telling people to register to vote, to go vote. She's had an impact.

It's really interesting too. If I remember right, she said in a pandemic era interview that she was told to not go political in country music. She came to realize though she needed to say something -- she was rather disturbed by the far right claiming her as an Aryan goddess or something. A gay friend of hers also encouraged her to use her platform to promote gay rights.

Long story short though, she's realized the importance of speaking out, and her newer songs talk about gender norms and how she's expected to be a wife and all that. She's a really interesting person!

And I'm a 29 year old dude, just accept the Swiftness into your soul

[-] [email protected] 33 points 6 months ago

As a 45 year old divorced guy I realize this will be incredibly creepy but it’s worth it.

It wouldn't really be that weird if you became a Swiftie lol. I think a lot of people who aren't already fans of Taylor Swift may be forgetting she's been famous for almost twenty years... Most (but not all) people attending the Eras tour and going to see the concert movie are millennial women in their 30s.

Taylor Swift shit in my pants, drank all of my wife's skim milk, and told my boss to fuck off after forgetting I had a presentation on Monday. How or why she keeps doing these things to me, I'll never ~~no~~ know.

Ffs, she's even putting typos in my Lemmy posts!

Go against the most popular pop star witha huge and very active fanbase, I'm sure that'll be a winning strategy.

It's appropriate that the GOP and their ilk were quite happy to harm the careers of the Dixie Chicks for speaking out against them and that they should then allegedly suffer negative consequences at the hands of another singer.

[-] PeckerBrown 32 points 6 months ago* (last edited 6 months ago)

Whining about being beat up by a woman sounds like a low-T problem to me.

[-] Fedizen 31 points 6 months ago

pretty sure there's more taylor swift fans than republicans at this point.
