Right-wing conspiracy theories about ... Taylor Swift?!?

Those talking heads must think their audience is pretty stupid. They could be right.

By now, you know that the usual gang of bloviators — Fox News, The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro, Tucker Carlson, Catturd ™, and various even-lower life forms — are burning up airtime with ever-more ridiculous conspiracy theories about pop icon Taylor Swift. How stupid must they think their audience is?

Sadly, very stupid. And, sadly, the audience is earning their unmitigated contempt.

I hate to say that. It seems like a cheap shot at those who disagree with me. But just look at the nonsense they’re swallowing without rebelling!

Taylor Swift is a Pentagon PSYOP? Really, Jesse Watters? You are no genius, granted, but you must think your audience very subpar. Swift will be playing in Mexico (four separate dates on her international Eras Tour), Argentina (three shows), Japan (four), Brazil (five), Australia (seven), Singapore (three), France (six), Sweden (three), Portugal (two), Spain (sadly, just one show), Scotland (three), Wales (one), England (a whopping nine shows), Ireland (three), the Netherlands (three), Switzerland (two), Italy (two), Germany (seven), Poland (three), and Austria (three).

If the Pentagon had the ability to engineer that kind of popularity, we would never have lost a war in our entire history. And how exactly would the military accomplish this? 

The Right caterwauls that Swift is a no-talent hack. Sure, the kind of dumb has-been or never-was who has won 12 Grammys, whose concert film The Eras Tour is the highest-grossing concert film in history, who regained control of her records, and who was one of the few celebrities not to fall for crypto scam FTX. Their whining just makes them look pathetic. 

And anybody in their right-wing audience who is buying what they’re selling deserves all the contempt that these millionaire talking heads heap upon them.
