Now we know the quo

Look what they made her do. The payoff was delivered as part of the quid pro quo that inspired Taylor Swift's uncharacteristic political outburst.
Swift, 28, doubles down on her anti-Trump message and urges her fans to vote Democrat as she becomes most decorated female of ALL time at American Music Awards. Taylor was nominated for four awards on the night: Tour of the Year, Favorite Rock/Pop Female, Favorite Rock/Pop Album, and Artist of the Year, winning all four. Her four wins made her most decorated female in AMA history.
Also, she gets to stay in the closet for a little while longer. Which is nice. It's interesting to observe that the award-winning Tour of the Year didn't even manage to sell out on a regular basis.

So disappointing. I kinda like Taylor Swift and I appreciated that she avoided commenting on politics for a decade. It was almost like she understood that it was bad business to insult 50% of your audience.

The pressure on her to tack left must have been immense. Certainly this quid pro quo was part of it. It would be hilarious if, after receiving the award, she announced that she was just kidding about voting for Democrats and only said so because she knew it would result in her winning awards.

a revolving door of celeb boys.

There is your first clue. Think back to all the old Hollywood studio marriages. Many, if not most, celeb-celeb romances are PR stunts covering for something deemed harmful to the careers of one or both parties.

Things like this make me genuinely glad to have nothing but contempt for post-2k Western music. In fact I've believed for quite some time now that the repetitive and simple pentatonic melodies and use of the same exact presets and drum machines, ad nauseum, is literally designed to make people dumber. Especially when you consider all the TV screens and loud speakers in public, the advertisements and radio stations that are genuinely intrusive and insistent that you hear this stupid crap 24/7. I wouldn't even be slightly shocked if the entire thing is rigged to control the population, as this move hints.

If I was personally tasked with creating sheep and keeping them in control, the first thing I would do is expose them to nothing but shallow, non-challenging artwork intended to make them conformist and submissive. I can't imagine the current elites are doing anything different.

The funny thing is that the chans don't give two shits about Swift. She was just another meme to play with. But some of the articles coming out in the media are suggesting that the chans are in full melt down over losing "ourgirl." Thats not at all the case. At least according to /pol, Swift was simply a trojan horse to deliver memes to the normies, nothing more.

Award shows are really entertainment and variety shows with the award concept added as it apparently adds interest and viewers to the production. Defining quality entertainment by what the mass of people like, every now and then and in some situations the talent does rule. But in between times and most of the time entertainment is ruled by the people who market the product.

I figure one of two things is going on.

Or, She's 28 and her pop star palm crystal just turned blinking red. She is now past her peak earning years and she was starting to shed some of her pop-star teenage fans.

Gen Z girls are more into Lindsey Stirling than Taylor Swift.

It was time for her to transition into a more "serious artist" if she is going to have a career 2.0 and that means officially going celebutard.

Blogger Damelon Brinn October 10, 2018 9:11 AM  

did she change teams?

Steve Sailer has talked about how lesbians aren't so big on the "born this way" narrative as homos are, because many lesbians will admit they switched after bad experiences with men. If you assume, as I think you have to these days, that a pretty pop singer had to give up a piece to every Harvey who helped her along the way, it wouldn't be surprising if some of them are done with men by the time they get to the top.

I keep seeing talk about how voter registrations went way up in TN after this, implying that they're all registering to vote with her. But I also see polls showing the R staying well in front. They don't seem to consider the possibility that people are registering so they can vote the other way.

I call bullshit on the massive voter registration after her voting announcement. It's either made up out of whole cloth, or the numbers were generated in some wildly disingenuous manner by cherry picking the data.

Even if young women were motivated by Swift, they would not have gone out and registered in just 24 hours.

Blogger Damelon Brinn October 10, 2018 9:23 AM  

The funny thing is that the chans don't give two shits about Swift.

It was a thing yesterday for about 4 hours, but it didn't even last as long as the Peterson bashing. A bunch of liberal shills swarmed to start about a hundred "Har har har how about your aryan princess now?" threads and then went away when there wasn't much reaction. They don't seem to get that it was a meme. Sure, there were probably some people who hoped her silence on politics meant she secretly leaned right. But no one really thought she keeps Mein Kampf on her nightstand, especially not the people who made the freaking memes in the first place.

Now that the left is losing, it's reduced to trying to keep the right from enjoying the victories. "Oh, you think you won because you installed a young, conservative SC justice despite everything we could throw at him? Well, Taylor Swift is a liberal, how about that, huh?" Uh, okay. I'll trade Supreme Court seats for pop stars all day long.

It’s a cold harsh place (Yes it is)
We are living (Are we really?)
Nothing granted, nothing given
Only rented, only borrowed
If they could they would disarm you tomorrow
How far gone will things have to be
For you to finally agree with the things that I see?
Caution must be thrown to the wind
Once you understand the problem if you’re grown and you’re men
Until you acknowledge the room for improvement
There will always be lingering doom in your movement
Your cognitive dissonance makes it half impossible
The grasp the logical fact you’re dealing with pathological behavior
It’s like you want them to enslave you
And make you all complacent when they offer you a savior
I wager every iota of hope is lost
As long as you keep walking around believing in some Soapocaust.

There’s no turning back, the plans have been laid
No games will be played, no compromises made
The monsters won’t be spared when everything gets weighed
I’m throwing the grenade. The dragon will/must be slayed

@23 Gr8Again

I don't doubt the numbers, but its undoubtedly a narrative thats being sold. They are desperate for any good news after this past weekend.

According to the NYT its 166K registered through vote.org's online tools between Sunday and Tuesday. But keep in mind that a lot of states have their registration deadline on Tuesday as well. And that doesn't even come close to the number of new voters registered on Nat'l Voter Registration Day (300K+).

One thing I can't seem to find in any articles about the Taylor Swift effect is the party breakdown of the new voters. That seems like an odd omission to make if Swift had the effect of bringing out a bunch of new Dem voters.

I think most likely we had a convergence of several things at play; including Swift there was the Kav nomination being confirmed and the deadline to register in a lot of states was Tuesday. So all those things probably fueled the increase in registrations. But seeing as theres no mention of the party breakdowns or any mention of state breakdowns aside from the effect on Tenn (about 3% of these new registrations were in Tenn), theres not much way to gauge the actual effect this would have. Also seeing as how many were younger voters who were politically unengaged previously, I wonder how many will bother standing in line at the polling places come Nov.

So yeah its all one big story, even taking the numbers given as true. The media is just trying to scrape together any sense of hope in the Dem voters to negate the demoralizing effect of Trumps recent victories.

She's definitely playing a role. Like pretty much every other tween female star of recent memory. Take a tween that's relatively wholesome. Put her in a wholesome innocuous entertainment position, either singing or acting on some Disney Channel show geared towards 9-12 year old girls. That gets the hook into them. As that demographic ages, so does the entertainment star. She slowly morphs into the closet-depraved, sexually-suggestive libertine role she assumes until she's post-wall. Then she's either discarded, or kept around as a wrinkled old gauleiter to "mentor" the fresh meat coming down the assembly line, and reinforce the notion that they made the correct choice in her now crone demographic.

Madonna didn't have the tween chops when she started, but she's the first one I can think of that established that playbook.

I am at least ten years into not knowing most music/movie people of the modern era. I was shocked to see that Robert Redford is still sliming around. The only reason I know as much about Swift as I do is because she was local. The tri county news omnibus channel/website had gushing bits on her and her company for years, that turned into weird little corruptions and exploitation surrounding her and her people before she just disappeared from the news slider all together. 2 years at least. PA loves it's homegrown celebrities, and all the local media is Leftist. So the drop off says something.

Let me tell you a story about when I was a DJ in a radio station in my dorm at Purdue.
We used to get promo records in the mail from the record companies -- each one several WEEKS before its release date.

Do you know what was on the cardboard jacket most of about half the albums in each package?

"Contains the HIT blah-blah-blah"

Think about that -- no more than a handful of people have heard the music on that album, and there's a claim that a certain song on it is "A HIT".

This is the NOT-SO-SUBTLE method of telling Mr. Program Director: "You better make absolutely SURE that particular track gets a ton of airplay, or we won't send you free records any more."

It's just like primaries and elections. As Boss Tweed used to say: Let me choose the candidates, and I DON'T CARE who the voters vote for" (because the winner would ALWAYS be *HIS* candidate.)

Also, I grew up in Avon Township (now Rochester Hills), Michigan, which is where Madonna was during her teen years.

NOBODY heard of her, even locally, back then. Of course, she was living in the middle of arm land, on a dirt road. Which is not to say she came from a poor family. No, the kids who attended Rochester Adams High School came from very well-off families. Primarily GM and Chrysler auto executives.

She really didn't start singing until she moved to New York City.

I have never understood what's so fascinating about her. I know women swooning over her music, men over her looks, and there's me with a big HUH?? on my face.

For someone who's made herself famous for her bad relationships, seems like no one has ever asked, after all these years, it's not the guys she's picked. Maybe, just maybe, it's herself she should blame. If she was a lesbian, that would make a little sense. Be interesting if she did come out, and continued to have famously awful relationship outcomes.

As far as voter registration goes, I saw that on CNN last night. Here in KY the online voting registration deadline was yesterday, so naturally there was a spike in new voter registration. CNN was also proclaiming how much ahead the Demoncrats were ahead in the generic polls.

Well she has been surrounded by leftist entertainment types for her formative years. Not really a surprise. Pity though she seemed to have started out pretty innocent. Still to me it seemed something was off. Like Pink her music was uncomfortably autobiographical. It just screams I've got issues. I seem to recall sometime ago that some famous guy took her virginity. Sounded like a pump and dump. After that she jumped on the carrosell hard. I've seen that before, girl really is just trying to get back at the guy. It's the look at me, look at me, look at me, entertainment ego thing. These people are a half bubble off plumb and this surprises us? Like someone said upthread girls oft go lez after bad relations with men. Sad really, best she can hope for is lesbians Dorito night, worst is the typical homosexual drama and violence. So there's that. As to politics, my guess, she see's her career trending downward so she's trying to pull a Bono or Jolie. Isn't that the ET trend for somewhat washed up stars? Besides she's got FU money so at this point - meh.

You're not one who indulges in mass media much.... therefore, you're not ingesting the post-hypnotic suggestions of what to believe.

Seriously, ALL mass media (except possibly SOME non-fiction books and instructional material) are DESIGNED (even if not by intent) to be trance-inducing. If it's enjoyable to read/listen to/watch, then it's a nearly sure bet that it's also trance-inducing.

Why do advertisers pay such high premiums for TV ads vs radio ads (after pro-rating for the size of the audience reached?) Because TV advertisements are put WITHIN, or right after, some material which was DESIGNED (by making it entertaining) to put the viewer into a trance.

Proof -- you're watching a horror/suspense film. The station suddenly cuts to a commercial. You notice that YOU are physically tense, and over the course of many seconds, start to relax.

Why were YOU tense? You were sitting on your living room couch, within your house, behind locked doors. There's no madman running around your neighborhood hunting people down. So why are you so tense?

Because of the hypnotic nature of movies + the in-movie suggestions for which the appropriate response is physical tension and fear.

Pop out of the program, and you pop out of THAT state of fear and tension... but you are STILL in the trance state. It's just a transition from fear and tension to "you should buy and XYZ" (Yes, I've ALWAYS needed one of these, even though I didn't even know it existed 30 seconds ago!")

ALL of the issues since issue #1 were scanned by Mad personnel into PDF form, so you don't need any clumsy software to view it, and even the menus are in PDF files that automagically open up sub-ranges (a particular decade => particulare year => particular issue).

MAD started out as a horror title (Tales Calculated to Drive you MAD), but by the 10th issue, was solidly in the lampoon business, in which any "horror" was with a wink-and-a-nod.... like drawing a supposed Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck strip in the typical Disney Style...but by the end of the strip, the artistic style -- and therefore environment -- has gradually, but drastically changed, much to Donald's chagrin.)

@74 Dirk,
Yes, it's all by design.

Edward Bernays, pioneer of public relations aka propaganda, nephew to Freud, from his 1928 book Propaganda
"Some of the phenomena of this process are criticized— the manipulation of news, the inflation of personality, and the general ballyhoo by which politicians and commercial products and social ideas are brought to the consciousness of the masses. The instruments by which public opinion is organized and focused may be misused. But such organization and focusing are necessary to orderly life.
As civilization has become more complex, and as the need for invisible government has been increasingly demonstrated, the technical means have been invented and developed by which opinion may be regimented.

The minority has discovered a powerful help in influencing majorities. It has been found possible so to mold the mind of the masses that they will throw their newly gained strength in the desired direction. In the present structure of society, this practice is inevitable. Whatever of social importance is done today, whether in politics, finance, manufacture, agriculture, charity, education, or other fields, must be done with the help of propaganda. Propaganda is the executive arm of the invisible government.
Universal literacy was supposed to educate the common man to control his environment. Once he could read and write he would have a mind fit to rule. So ran the democratic doctrine. But instead of a mind, universal literacy has given him rubber stamps, rubber stamps inked with advertising slogans, with editorials, with published scientific data, with the trivialities of the tabloids and the platitudes of history, but quite innocent of original thought. Each man's rubber stamps are the duplicates of millions of others, so that when those millions are exposed to the same stimuli, all receive identical imprints. It may seem an exaggeration to say that the American public gets most of its ideas in this wholesale fashion. "

By around Issue #10, MAD had already changed from horror to comedy, with the motto changed from "Tales to Drive You MAD" to "MAD" subtitle "Humor in a Jugular Vein" -- in which there was still some "horror" aspect to the publication. But already, they were doing fake movie reviews, parodies of commercials, taking pot-shots at popular culture figures, etc.

MAD explicitly acknowledged the switch to humor/lampoon/social commentary with Issue #24 with a format change. 5 Issues later, Chief Editor Harvey Kurtzman left to go work for Playboy.

@76: 1928. Just when the era of "one box, one voice, everybody listens" was just getting started.

Those days are gone, hopefully for good. But with Big Social, ya just never know.

Well, when the CIA's black budget gets cut, they won't be able to shovel half a trillion dollars to Google and Facebook and Twitter any more.

I realize this is off topic, but it's pertinent to what's going on today...given the Press is flipping out about democrats being called a mob, is it effective rhetoric to call them a mob? CNN had a panel of 5 people whining about this.

Something of a tramp is oddly what most lesbians have in common. I don’t remember the number, but the average number of men that a typical lesbian has sex with is far higher than the heterosexual women average

Country music hasn't been country music for I don't know how many decades. All captured by promoters.

How are people surprised. Obviously Swift is part of the sewer.
1. She's promiscuous.
2. She's friends with Lena Dunham.
3. Have you listened to her lyrics???

Don't put too much faith in Lindsay Sterling either. Save your faith for Jesus.

Well if they don't like it that is a good sign. I believe it accurate to say that the Democrats are using fascist methods, but that is perhaps more than the public would buy into now.

Anecdotal, but that's spot on from what I witnessed back in the day. They always have their hand in someone's pants.

@85- They're using commie methods. Antifa's logo comes directly from the 1930s German communist party.

You have to remember that TS is an icon of White Power. She has never said or done anything to encourage this. If a Beyonce type she in the Becky that they all hate. She is thin, blond, from a wealthy family. TS is flat fore and aft and writes these songs about white peoples problems. Non-whites hate her.
(I think she did play at a fund raiser a few months back for a PO who was killed by an illegal violent foreigner.)

Sexual identity issues almost always lead directly to Borderline Personality Disorder as the overall cause. And one component of BPD is a severe inability to recognize boundaries of any sort.

@79 "when the CIA's black budget gets cut, they won't be able to shovel half a trillion dollars..."

The Agency has long since moved on from Congressional funding of its most sensitive projects. Google "Black Eagle Trust" and you'll understand how they can operate outside the lines without care, impunity, or responsibility.

Those Constitutional coils were shunted aside in the late 1940s, and have only become worse in the decades since. #GoldWarriors

Otherwise high status breeding stock lesbianism is the ultimate hard-to-get play, and the rest at some level are semi-consciously desirous of capitalizing on the prospective pull of their more attractive scissor mate in melanges with males out of their pay grade. Harems are alive and well in the age of Tinder -- just geographically discrete.

Western Anime HS/K-Pop culture, plus wholesomeness relative to the more blatant whores of babylon (She-Bieber).
