Online Neo-Nazis Are Worshiping Taylor Swift as Their Princess Now
There’s something about Taylor Swift that’s like catnip to neo-nazis.
While you wouldn’t necessarily associate a group of online neo-nazis and other members of the alt right, a bro-y internet subculture filled with hipster white supremacists who get off on saying hateful things, with the forever PG-rated Taylor Swift, they might just be the biggest Swifties in the world.
The reasons why Nazis can’t get enough of Taylor Swift are actually pretty simple, according to Andre Anglin, a writer for the self-proclaimed “world’s most visited alt-right web site,” the Daily Stormer.
“Firstly, Taylor Swift is a pure Aryan goddess, like something out of classical Greek poetry,” he explained to 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.”
Yeah probably, right?
He goes on to point out, “The entire alt-right patiently awaits the day when we can lay down our swords and kneel before her throne as she commands us to go forth and slaughter the subhuman enemies of the Aryan race.”
That’s obviously what “Bad Blood” is secretly about.
No wonder she kept insisting that it wasn’t about Katy Perry.
Everything makes so much sense now.
To date, the Daily Stormer has written 25 articles about Taylor Swift and they’re not the only ones.
There’s also the Facebook group Taylor Swift for Fascist Europe and the innocuous sounding Pinterest user @poopcutie, who was probably responsible for making Nazis fall in love with Taylor Swift in the first place when she started posting memes that jokingly attributed Adolf Hitler quotes to Taylor Swift pictures in 2013.
Unlike the neo-nazis however, @poopcutie was just trying to be satirical, which is why even after Taylor Swift’s lawyer sent her a threatening letter imploring her to take down her memes, @poopcutie refused, shrugging off the controversy by saying, “Everyone wants to go viral.”
Pinterest also refused to take down the Hitler/Swift memes, citing the fact that it’s totally legal to parody Taylor Swift.
So far Taylor Swift’s lawyers and reps have refused to comment on this news development, and we have a feeling they never will. Probably best to just let the crazies be crazy, right?
