Neo-Nazis Really Love Taylor Swift
Skinheads may be her most unlikely (and unwelcome) fans. http://slate.me/27TRuWm
- •Taylor Swift is an cryptofascist “Aryan goddess” who will lead a mighty ethnic cleansing after Donald Trump seizes power.That’s the gist of a bizarre Broadly interview with several “alt right” bloggers.
- •Andre Anglin, alt right blogger at the Daily Stormer, says, ““It is also an established fact that Taylor Swift is secretly a Nazi and is simply waiting for the time when Donald Trump makes it safe for her to come out and announce her Aryan agenda to the world.”
- •What makes him so certain?She doesn’t like to talk about politics in public, and she started as a country singer.
- •Oh, and she’s blonde. Plus, she has the “Aryan spirit,” unlike some of her fellow pop stars.
- •“Take Kim Kardashian or Miley Cyrus… Both began their lives with the same Nordic blood that Swift did, but what makes these two degenerates unfit for consideration as fascist icons? It is because, although Aryan in blood, the two are not Aryan in spirit."That's from the community manager of “Taylor Swift for Fascist Europe”, a Facebook group with 18,000 fans.
- •Oddly enough, the group is listed as a “comedian” on Facebook.
- •But it’s almost certain that Swift would not find its “jokes” very funny.
