Taylor Swift: The Favorite Of Neo Nazis
by Andrew Trendell, reposted from Gigwise (here)
Here’s something that Taylor Swift fans may indeed want to shake off – the 1989 star is regarded as ‘a Goddess’ by Neo-Nazis.
Beloved by right wing extremists for her blue eyes, blonde hair and pure image, Andrew Anglin of white supremacy blog the Daily Stormer has spoken out in praise of Swift – claiming that she’s ‘secretly a Nazi’.
“Firstly, Taylor Swift is a pure Aryan goddess, like something out of classical Greek poetry,” he told Broadly. “Athena reborn. That’s the most important thing. 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.
“Probably, she will be betrothed to Trump’s son, and they will be crowned American royalty…”
He continued: “It’s incredible really that she’s surrounded by these filthy, perverted Jews, and yet she remains capable of exuding 1950s purity, femininity and innocence.
“She is the anti-Miley. While Miley is out having gang-bangs with colored gentlemen, she is at home with her cat reading Jane Austen.”
At this point, we should not only mention that there is no grounding for suggesting Miley Cyrus ha ever done such thing, Taylor Swift has denied being ‘a secret Nazi’, and has spoken out to distance herself from any association with supremacists.
In a letter sent to Pinterest after memes started attributing Hitler and Nazi quotes to Swift, her people said: “The association of Ms. Swift with Adolf Hitler undisputedly is ‘harmful,’ ‘abusive,’ ‘ethnically offensive,’ ‘humiliating to other people,’ ‘libellous,’ and no doubt ‘otherwise objectionable.’
“It is of no import that Ms. Swift may be a public figure or that Pinterest conveniently now argues that the Offending Material is mere satire or parody. Public figures have rights. And, there are certain historical figures, such as Adolf Hitler, Charles Manson and the like, who are universally identified in the case law and popular culture as lightning rods for emotional and negative reaction.”
Here’s one of said memes…

This image has also been doing the rounds, however AJ English told Daily Mail that the shirt was originally an ‘X’, before being edited by revellers at a party. A source later told TMZ that Swift posed with over 100 people at said event, and ‘didn’t realise’ what was on the shirt:
