Conspiracy Theories Fly After Taylor Swift Name Time’s Person Of Year

Taylor Swift’s rise to fame has sparked a new conspiracy theory among some supporters of the Make America Great Again (MAGA) movement. These individuals believe Swift is being used to interfere in the 2024 presidential election.

Swift, recently named Time magazine’s “Person of the Year,” has become dominant in the entertainment industry. Her wildly popular Eras Tour, projected to become the most extensive and highest-grossing tour of all time, has had a significant economic impact on the cities and towns it visited. Even the U.S. economy as a whole has benefited from her tour.

Despite her success, some conservatives suspect Swift’s designation as Time’s “Person of the Year” is part of a political ploy. They argue that her massive following and influence could be weaponized for the upcoming election.

Laura Loomer, a prominent figure on the right, suggested that Swift’s close association with the Democratic Party makes her a potential interference in the 2024 Presidential election. Loomer claims that Swift’s world tour has become nothing more than a Democrat Party Voter Registration drive.

While Swift has not publicly expressed her stance on the next presidential election, she did endorse Joe Biden in 2020. Swift has been increasingly vocal about her political beliefs since endorsing former Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen, a Democrat, in a Senate race five years ago. She believes in using her platform to advocate for candidates who protect and fight for human rights.

Conservatives have closely scrutinized Swift’s forays into politics and her relationship with Kansas City Chief Travis Kelce. Some conservative activists, such as Charlie Kirk and Jack Posobiec, have even blamed Swift for the Republican Party’s losses in certain states, claiming that she mobilizes an “army of voters.”

Posobiec points out that this is not the first time Swift has been named Time’s “Person of the Year.” In 2017, she was recognized as part of the Silence Breakers, a group of women behind the #MeToo movement. Some conservatives argue that Swift’s inclusion in this group and her subsequent rise in political activism are part of a larger plan.

While the conspiracy theory surrounding Taylor Swift’s involvement in the 2024 presidential election may seem far-fetched to some, it highlights the power and influence that celebrities can have in shaping public opinion and political discourse. Only time will tell how Swift’s career and political engagement will continue to evolve.
