Please note the byline, because I’M the resident Swiftie at LwC. I’m also the only Swiftie at LwC. And the boss has a habit of firing people if he’s mistakenly accused of being a Taylor Swift fan. Considering what I just paid for concert tickets, I need this job.
However this is less about her, and more about liberaLOL outrage. We can all celebrate that. Right? The left saves some of their stupidest opinions for T-Swizzle (see BuzzFeed Trashes Taylor Swift… For Being Too White and Demi Lovoto Attacks “Body Shaming” Taylor Swift…by Body Shaming Her). They knew she was trouble when she never wore a crochet vagina. And are unable to “shake it off” when Swift isn’t concerned about being woke. Why they gotta be so “mean?”
Ok, that’s it with the song references.
How dare a celebrity not express a political opinion. Or keep her political opinion to herself. Not just any opinion, how dare Taylor Swift not publicly walk in lock step with whatever the leftist cause du jour is this week? We’re almost at the point on the left where it goes: 1. Donald Trump, 2. Taylor Swift, 3. Hitler. Because only one of the three is a socialist.
This week is a perfect example. The newest outrage: Taylor didn’t think 2017 was terrible.
And she appreciates her fans. Monster.
No seriously. This triggered the left
Congrats to the now 28-year-old Taylor Swift for being the only person who seemed to enjoy 2017 https://t.co/hzLG8uMn42

I mean, yeah there were Nazi's and white supremacy marches, and families are being town apart, and there were mass shootings, and people are losing health care, but none of that affects me, so 2017 was great!

And of course the “Beyonce Professor” had to chime in:
is there anything more annoying than Taylor Swift talking about what a great year 2017 has been while everyone else is fighting for our lives under Trump? ugh…

Literally fighting for our lives. I just angered my editor for sarcastically using “literally” the wrong way.
How dare she! Thanking fans for birthday wishes? Thanking them for her successes? What kind of a heartless biyatch does that? It’s almost as bad as leaving four men to die in Benghazi.
The left can’t let people be happy. To the left, everything is terrible. Forever and always. As Jezebel points out:
2017 was not a good year. In the last twelve months, the United States has been plagued by hurricanes, wildfire, gunfire, and a group of meglomaniacs hellbent on dismantling social safety nets so they can get tax breaks on their private jets. Billionaires destroyed media companies. Ice shelves cracked. Tom Petty died. The Great British Bake Off imploded. But it appears Taylor Swift had a super swell time while the rest of us suffered nightly panic attacks, thanks very much, and she couldn’t have asked for a better year!
In all fairness, it was her birthday, but on my birthday I blacked out and cried and Taylor should have, too.
Billboard points out that Swift did, in fact, have a pretty good year, considering her new album, Reputation, has basically been at the top of the charts since it was released last month, plus she’s allegedly in an “awesome” relationship with boyfriend Joe Alwyn, how lucky for her. And yet, it’s hard to imagine even the happiest of life circumstances trumping the total trash storm that otherwise constituted this particular orbit around the sun.
Actually, it’s easy to imagine. Natural disasters happen. Every year. Bad people do bad things. Every year. Don’t blame a pop star because at least half of the country recognizes your leftist political agenda is bull**** stinking up ball rooms. There’s reality. Then there’s what some of you have seen on MSNBC. Jimmy Kimmel. Don’t hate the rest of us for having lives outside of Reddit.
That’s the difference between leftists and normal people with lives. Some of us can cope knowing people disagree with us. Our coffee consumption isn’t affected by the lives of others. No matter how various media outlets try scaring us with the bad habits of fictional baddies. Other people have no coping mechanism over differences of opinion. They need their favorite celebrities to scare them into thinking we’re all literally going to die. From Net Neutrality’s repeal. Or eating too many carrots.
So they lash out at the few entertainers who are more concerned with entertaining than they are with alienating. #Figures
Hopefully Taylor Swift’s people have pointed out none of the people whining about her lack of a political opinions are actual fans. Let’s hope she just keeps trolling the left, accordingly.
