Taylor Swift Comes Under Fire From Conservatives Yet Again

Taylor Swift’s (she/her) long list of accolades has steadily grown over the years as she racks up more and more awards under her belt. An internationally known pop star and global phenomenon, Taylor Swift is famed for her record breaking hits, but one topic that you might not expect to hear her name associated with is American politics. 

The two-time Woman of the Year recipient has been the topic of heated discussion as she has come under fire from conservative pundits for encouraging her fanbase to vote in the upcoming 2024 General Presidential Election. Now why would Taylor Swift encouraging her fans to vote be a bad thing? Well, some conservative conspiracists have theorized that her efforts will have an impact on swaying the outcome of the 2024 election results.

An Instagram post Swift made has been reported as having an impact in 35,000 people becoming registered voters in a one day time period. A study from Monmouth University listed in USA today stated that 1 in 5 Americans believe that Taylor Swift is part of an unspoken plot to aid in Joe Biden’s (he/him) re-election.

It is wildly alarming that some Americans think that more people registering to vote is somehow a bad thing when it should be a good thing, regardless of who encouraged them to do so. This is the latest, but far from the only thing that Taylor Swift has done that has caused conservatives to obsess over her, and I’m sure it won’t be the last. Love her or hate her, it’s impossible to deny the influence Taylor Swift has on American politics, and it’s clear her opinions and influence are not going anywhere.

Then on Monday, a total solar eclipse passed over the region, the last we’ll see (unless you forgot your eclipse glasses—protect your retinas!) […]

Ode to the Campus Bikers

A few days ago I sat with my friends in University Park, waiting for the solar eclipse to (somewhat) knock my socks off, when all of a sudden there they were. We all know them. That group of middle school kids that ride around campus on their bikes, acting all tough with their wheelies.  I […]
