Taylor Swift: ‘White Supremacy Is Repulsive. There Is Nothing Worse’

Luke O'Neil, Guardian, September 19, 2109

After years of keeping herself at a largely indifferent remove, Taylor Swift has elaborated on her political ideology in a new interview with Rolling Stone.


{snip} Swift clarified she was not aware of her adoption for the racist cause at the time.

“There’s literally nothing worse than white supremacy. It’s repulsive. There should be no place for it,” she told Rolling Stone.

Now she’s trying to learn as much as she can about politics, calling it something she’s become obsessed with.


“We were in such an amazing time when Obama was president because foreign nations respected us. We were so excited to have this dignified person in the White House. My first election was voting for him when he made it into office, and then voting to re-elect him. I think a lot of people are like me, where they just didn’t really know that this could happen.”

Now she’s focused on the 2020 election, she said, hoping that her involvement might help more than it hurts the Democrats’ cause.
