Woke Taylor Swift: I’m on the ‘Right Side of History’

TayTay went from quiet to woke in record time.

The music superstar let her songs do the talking for most of her extravagant career. All that changed, though, after the media insisted she take sides in the current culture war, particularly when Donald Trump emerged as a presidential candidate.

To them, she could only choose one side.

So Swift did as told, embracing far-left platforms across the board. That transition is cheered via the upcoming Netflix documentary “Miss Americana.”

The film, in select theaters and Netflix Jan. 31, tracks Swift’s transformation into yet another celebrity activist.

“A nice girl doesn’t force their opinions on people,” Swifts says in the trailer, recalling the advice record executives told her over the years. “I became the person everyone wanted me to be.” Now, of course, she’s the person every reporter in the country wants her to be.

“I need to be on the right side of history,” she says of her transition.

The trailer shrewdly avoids any details of Swift’s “new” positions, as well as the condescending way she treats those with whom she disagrees. Also missing? Speaking out for the human rights of conservatives.

Consider this snippet from her exclusive chat with Variety:

“Because I’ve talked about equality and sung about it in songs like ‘Welcome to New York,’ but we are at a point where human rights are being violated. When you’re saying that certain people can be kicked out of a restaurant because of who they love or how they identify, and these are actual policies that certain politicians vocally stand behind, and they disguise them as family values, that is sinister. So, so dark.”

Does Swift care that conservatives have been chased out of restaurants for their political beliefs? What about how they’re attacked on campuses nationwide? Or how if they suggest there are simply two genders they lose their gigs?

More importantly, does she ever talk to people outside her fame bubble? Does her smart phone land on stories from National Review or The Daily Wire?

Those kind of questions would make for a fascinating look into her mindset. Chances are they didn’t make the final cut, assuming they were ever considered.

Here’s the official description from the Netflix PR release:

Miss Americana is a raw and emotionally revealing look at one of the most iconic artists of our time during a transformational period in her life as she learns to embrace her role not only as a songwriter and performer, but as a woman harnessing the full power of her voice.

As previously announced, Miss Americana will make its world premiere on January 23, 2020 at the Sundance Film Festival.
