Taylor Swift Finally Breaks Her Political Silence

 

The notoriously apolitical Taylor Swift came out Sunday to  endorse Tennessee Democrats Phil Bredesen and Jim Cooper, who are  running for U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, respectively. "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," she wrote on Instagram  in a lengthy plea for her fans to register and vote. "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." Taylor also wrote that  she "cannot support" Marsha Blackburn, the Republican candidate for the  Senate who was endorsed by President Donald Trump last week. "Her voting  record in Congress appalls and terrifies me," she wrote. "These are not  MY Tennessee values." One Twitter user responded to Taylor making her  first-ever political statement by writing, "If you had told me two years  ago Kanye would be running around in a MAGA hat while Taylor Swift was  endorsing democratic candidates, I would have smacked you to the ground  and stolen your wallet for wasting my time."
