So, I won’t lie, son. It’s super easy to hate on Taylor Swift, man. I mean, she’s made a career out of dissing ex-boyfriends and being fake humble, fam. All I can say is, that ain’t the type of vibe I regularly endorse, bruh. In any case, I have to give credit where credit is due. Normally, when someone has a platform as huge as hers, they steer clear of ALL political discussions. However, instead of running from her influence, Swift has decided to use her name in a positive way. All in all, salute to Swift, brethren!
Ok, for those who missed it, Swift took to Instagram to talk about the upcoming midterm elections. Now, while her tax bracket might suggest some Republican ties, she actually took the time to endorse some Democratic candidates. Then again, it’s not necessarily about whether she’s a Democrat or a Republican. Frankly, she simply doesn’t bang with Marsha Blackburn, a GOP candidate running for Senate in Tennessee. Anyway, instead of just being a contrarian for the sake of it, Swift actually explained why she doesn’t rock with Blackburn. For one, she pointed to Blackburn’s views on women and gay rights. Furthermore, Swift actually brought up systemic racism in America, something I NEVER thought I’d see from her.
Moving on, Swift gave her support for Phil Bredesen for the Senate and Jim Cooper for the House of Representatives. Needless to say, a lot of people, including myself, were shocked that she made such a public declaration. Shit, in 2018, who would’ve thought that Swift would be out here talking about racism while Kanye West is busy giving Donald Trump a dick-flute solo? *Sigh* These are strange fucking times we live in, son. Strange times indeed.
In the end, shout-out to Taylor Swift, man. Hell, even though I’ve never given her any props before, I guess there’s a first time for everything, fam. Ultimately, I agree most with one point she made: “vote based on who most closely represents your values.” By and by, that doesn’t have shit to do with party lines, bruh. Now, everybody, get out there and vote on November 6! That is all. LC out.
