Taylor Swift is using her voice in the political scene once again. After breaking her silence on her support for a particular party not too long ago, the singer is back to reminding her followers how important voting is.
She also made her allegiance very clear when she posted a pic of her and her mother, Andrea, supporting Democrat Phil Bredesen for Tennessee’s U.S. Senate.
In the caption, she encouraged people to vote and slammed what she calls ‘fear-based extremism.’
‘⬆️These two Tennessee women⬆️ [pointing at her and her mom] voted for the candidate who has proven himself to be reasonable and trustworthy. We want leadership, not fear-based extremism. Early voting goes til Thursday and Election Day is November 6. Please don’t sit this one out,’ Taylor wrote.
As fans know, the superstar had stayed away from expressing her political opinion publicly for years until earlier this month when she made headlines after posting a lengthy, politically-charged message.
‘In the past I have been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinion, but due to some events in my life and in the world in the past 2 years, I feel differently about that now,’ she stated before making it very clear that she supports Bredesen because she also supports LGBTQ and just human rights in general.
Referring to his Republican opponent Marsha Blackburn, Taylor went on to say that ‘I cannot vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for the dignity of ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love.’
Hilariously enough, soon after, Donald Trump declared that he was only 75% her fan after the reveal that she was a Democrat.
‘I’m sure Taylor Swift does not know anything about her [Blackburn]. Let’s say I like Taylor’s music about 25% less now,’ Variety reports he said.
