Description“They took her from us and turned her into one of their brain dead zombies.”

Taylor Swift has been an alt-right icon since her first record dropped; her blonde hair and blue eyes made her a magnet for neo-Nazi fandom. Her legal team has had to legally request bloggers to stop sharing her pictures and lyrics alongside Hitler quotes. She was also the inspiration of the now disappeared “Taylor Swift for a Fascist Europe” meme page (which accrued 20K likes), and her picture is plastered all over online Aryan fan boards on sites like Reddit. In a Broadly piece from 2016 entitled “How Taylor Swift Became A Nazi Idol”, Mitchell Sunderland wrote, “Every demographic chooses a pop icon. Gay men worship Cher, black women love Beyoncé, and neo-Nazis worship Taylor Swift.” The piece goes on to speak to a writer of the The Daily Stormer blog, Andrew Anglin, who explains who Swift is a “pure Aryan goddess” and “Athena reborn” and argues that Taylor Swift was secretly a Nazi, but was just waiting for Donald Trump to be elected to say so.
