Taylor Swift used to be completely silent on political issues – and I used to really respect that about her.
She seemingly decided to be “woke” now, stumping against Tennessee Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn, releasing a “gay rights anthem,” (which, for the record, was shredded by both the Right AND the Left) and apparently suggesting she didn’t come out in favor of Hillary Clinton in 2016 because she was afraid it would backfire for Hillary.
All of this to say that Papa Swift’s recent Facebook outing will do little to help Tay Tay’s quest for ‘ultimate wokness’… because he seems like a pretty common-sense guy.
According to Daily Wire:
Scott Swift, the father of country-turned-pop superstar Taylor Swift, apparently has conservative views — and that might have been a problem for the newly Woke entertainer.
According to a report from The Daily Mail, Ms. Swift shared a humorous post from her father’s Facebook page to her Tumblr account. But once fans stormed Scott’s page and learned of his *gasp* conservative views, the Tumblr post was deleted, and soon after that, Mr. Swift’s Facebook page was deactivated.
Some of the posts and re-posts from Scott, according to The Daily Mail, expressed support for police officers, knocked presidential hopeful Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), praised the late First Lady Nancy Reagan, and critiqued illegal immigration and entitlements.
OH DEAR GOD. HE’S A MONSTER.
One post, emblazoned with “Blue Lives Matter,” showed a young woman and a child allegedly left behind after a police officer was killed on the job. “Share this to show that police are people too. Stop the violence against America’s heroes in blue,” the meme read.
Another shared post featured a photo of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, with text that read, “I no longer recognize this person as a senator. Share if you don’t either.”
“So sad to hear of the passing of Nancy Reagan,” a status allegedly published by Mr. Swift in March 2016 said. “Thought the world of those two wonderful people. Golden Years.”
The meme concerning illegal immigration and entitlements read as follows, according to The Daily Mail:
“The IRS has returned my tax return to me this year after I apparently answered one of the questions incorrectly… In response to the question, ‘Do you have anyone dependent on you?’ I wrote: ‘9.5 million illegal immigrants, 1.1 million crack heads, 3.4 million unemployable scroungers, 80,000 criminals in over 85 prisons plus 650 idiots in Washington’. The IRS stated the answer I gave was ‘unacceptable!'”
WAIT… he kinda sounds like one of us. Cheers, Mr. Swift!
The initial post allegedly shared and then deleted by Ms. Swift was a joke her father made about gaining “steps” on his tracker by placing it in the dryer on cool.
“This man must be stopped,” the 29-year-old jokingly captioned the post, adding “parents on the loose” and “no more guitar picks for him” hashtags.
Dangit, Taylor. You really had to go and ruin Papa Swift’s fun?
I wonder if the RABID LYNCH MOB that is the Let going after her dad will get her to realize who she’s aligned herself with…
But I doubt it.
