Taylor Swift’s Liberal Candidate Got TROUNCED – Shake That Off, Tay-Tay

Written by K. Walker on November 7, 2018

It seems that Taylor Swift is continuing her unbroken streak of picking the wrong man.

She hasn’t been lucky in love and not so much in politics, either.

Dems count on high-profile celebrity endorsements, but this one didn’t quite work out. Should the hoi polloi have listened to the musician known for her very personal break-up songs?

That might’ve been a warning sign.

After remaining silent for years, Taylor Swift came out of the political closet one month before the midterm election and endorsed TennesseeDemocratic candidates Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for the House of Representatives.

Her earlier decision to not be political and instead focus on music was ditched quickly and insinuated that President Trump and his supporters are bigots.

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! ????????????

She used her acceptance speech for Artist of the Year at the American Music Awards (AMA) to encourage her fans to get out and vote:

She then posted a celebratory photo on Instagram showing her support for Blackburn’s opponent.

Unfortunately for Taylor, Bredesen lost to the much-maligned and social media censored Marsha Blackburn. This makes Blackburn the first female Senator from Tennessee. The race was won handily and called at around 8:05 pm.

You’d think that progressive Tay-Tay would at least be celebrating that a woman has made history.

Then again, she did say that Blackburn’s voting record in Congress ‘appalls and terrifies’ her.

Twitter was brutal to Swift:

In the midst of it all, Taylor Swift got some pretty good advice through trolling.


Look, Taylor Swift, just like every American is allowed to have her own opinion on politics, but it’s the vilification of Blackburn and Republicans that’s the problem here.

But maybe that doesn’t bother you.

Now that Taylor Swift has alienated half of the country by joining the Celebrity Leftists, is she going to sing this to the Media (D) that forced her out of the closet?

Maybe she should.
