NPR commentator examines Taylor Swift's status as an "Aryan goddess" and finds her extreme "whiteness" unremarkable.

"For the record, Swift has no affiliation with any white supremacist groups... None of this means, or even remotely suggests, that Taylor Swift is into white supremacy...."

That article was a nothingburger.

I think she could definitely pull off a country-pop version of "Springtime for Hitler." I'd buy it.

For the record, NPR's "Code Switch" project has been a regular source of race-baiting, race-obsessing, race card-wielding embarrassment ever since "the Code Switch team" sprang into action a couple of years ago.

This reminds me of the new line from the Nevertrump crowd. If David Duke would put conservatives on the supreme Court, would you vote for him?

A tactic straight from the lefts playbook. But they want us to believe that Trump is the leftist. Uh huh.

I'm glad Obama was elected though. If for no other reason than all the racial healing.

Hey NPR- Taylor Swift hates clickbait!

White supremacists voice support for Trump, Trump doesn't immediately recognize and denounce formerly-prominent white supremacists = Trump and his supporters are racist, or at the very least it's a "troubling" thing.

White supremacists voice support for Taylor Swift = nothing to see here, no stain on Swift (or, for Laslo, "no taint on Swfit"), no guilt by association, move along.
Quick, someone ask Swift what she thinks about David Duke!

Anyway, it's not bias, it's just that the people the Media likes get the benefit of the doubt and aren't judged guilty for things like this, but people the Media doesn't like don't get that benefit and are presumed guilty in all things. No bias at all, no sir.

In other news, NPR finally discovers country music.

MadisonMan said...

If there is no evidence, why is NPR reporting it, other than to slam Donald Trump?

Can we finally defund NPR?

Oh, by the way! My local NPR ran a "story" this morning that was basically just an ad for Hilary Clinton. It was shockingly bad--almost surprisingly so.
The premise of the story was that there are a lot of young people, particularly young women, who support Clinton but are afraid to say so out loud since their young peers all adamantly support Sanders. The main subjects were a pair of roller derby gals who giggled that admitting their support to the interviewer was the first time they'd gone public with their Clinton-love.
The egregious part came when the reporter listed reasons the women and those like her support Hillary...it was something like "for her steadfastness, her intellect, her professionalism, her experience," and so on. At least a handful of things! The reporter didn't bother to get her subjects to say that, she just straight up listed those attributes as though they're universally-agreed upon facts that we all obviously know.
I was listening this morning while brushing my teeth and I laughed.

I wonder what would happen if the right started randomly and casually insinuating that targets on the left fancied having sex with little children - not that they had actually done anything, mind you, merely that they emanated such proclivities.

Good grief! What proof would they have? Why, uh, none. What proof would they need? They would only be commenting on their own sense that the leftists felt like child molestors to them, given (blah, blah, blah, nothing, whatever), then repeating the meme over and over and over again until it developed a hateful life of its own.

Of course, no one on the right would do such a thing, because they would be above bringing such a countervailing gun to the ongoing gun fight of casual racist branding. And, thus, one tribe comes to successfully intimidate and dominate another narratively and to make them sue for peace.

I don't see any end to this, quite anti-MLK, "racist"/"whiteness" silliness. Does anyone else? How or why would it ever end? It's simply too productive.

That's priceless.

Found it. NPR: Hillary Clinton Supports May Be Hiding In Plain View

It doesn't read as bad as it sounded (just her matter-of-fact tone, really).

They each have their reasons for supporting Clinton, whether it's her pragmatism, her commitment to the Affordable Care Act or her experience and understanding of America's role in the world. Winkler and Featherstone have even given her campaign a little money. But until this interview, they hadn't been vocal about it.

I mean, we could do that, or we COULD point to the actual Lefty people (some of whom just happen to be close to/intimate with high profile people like former President Clinton) who are, in fact, pedophiles and convicted sex offenders. Why make stuff up when the truth is this ugly?

A story about nothing with the intent of deflecting from NPR's support of class diversity schemes.

Clayton Hennesey said...

Fortunately or unfortunately, the truth is relatively rare. If you want to demonize and terrorize mass populations of people, though, or simply burn yourself a wide enough fire break from them doing that to you, you need a mass counter-narrative.

Understand from the beginning: there will be no niceness at this party. This is narrative hand-to-hand combat with truncheons on skulls, nothing else.

David Begley said...

Hillary in cuffs. Soon.

She may have had an insecure internet printer at home. Easy to tap that.

Another story that her loose ways lead to the FAILURE of covert actions.

IG Report showing she broke the law.

Guccifer read to sing.

Gee, cannot figure out why "White supremacy" is "growing". They expand the definition insanely and with shit like "White privilege" being seriously taught, why should I be nice when I'm automatically guilty?

White supremacists voice support for Trump, Trump doesn't immediately recognize and denounce formerly-prominent white supremacists = Trump and his supporters are racist, or at the very least it's a "troubling" thing.

Yeah. Do people REALLY want us to hold pols responsible for what voters of theirs believe? The Black Panthers were quite pro-Obama....

Can we finally defund NPR?

Now that HBO has Sesame Street, their only "You can't cancel us because..." is now gone.

For the record, this NPR commentator has no affiliation with any child sex slavery groups... None of this means, or even remotely suggests, that this NPR commentator is into child sex slavery.

I'd prefer a more accurate "We currently have no evidence that the commentator is affiliated with child sex slavery groups"

n.n said...

Au contraire. NPR supports both reactive parenthood (i.e. selective child or "final solution") and planned parenthood (i.e. trafficking and clinical cannibalism) under the pro-choice religious doctrine. Their support for selective exclusion, or "=", and class diversity (e.g. racism, sexism) schemes is only the beginning of their transsocial, transcivil, transhuman orientation.

AlbertAnonymous said...

Absolute Garbage. On NPR no less. I should be shocked and surprised, but alas...

I think most of the actual Aryan Goddesses are in Bollywood.

@buwaya,

Exempli gratia.

Bill Peschel said...

It's unfortunate they couldn't add "For the record, Taylor Swift is whiter than an NPR fundraiser."

Because it wouldn't be true.

Static Ping said...

I dunno, when given a choice to pick the pop icon for your movement, Taylor Swift would definitely be among the top candidates. She's very pretty, very talented, very white, and only slightly nuts.

Let me steal some of Laslo’s shtick with “NPR Mole White Supremacist Expert.” No, I don’t know if he has a ponytail or otherwise swishes.

---

I have understood that some of you disagree with my selection of Taylor Swift as the official musical diva of our organization. While I can appreciate that finding the perfect candidate can be somewhat difficult in this day in age and we all have our own preferences, it would have been more productive if you has come up with some suggestions for your favorite freulein pop star when you crashed my brainstorming meeting and ate all the catering. Seriously, you vultures cleaned me out so thoroughly that all I was left with was a bag of Cheetos and a half eaten snickerdoodle, which I am pretty sure someone licked. So, there I am, all alone with no lunch and no suggestions in the sub-basement of the Motel 6 off the interstate while you guys went out bowling, and now you complain? And you wonder why Hitler killed himself.

I see you have provided me with a list of alternate options. Nothing like a 7-10 split on a full stomach to get you thinking, huh? Why are you bowling anyway? Cupping black balls to hit white pins? Do you not understand the struggle? Do you understand the optics? Do you really eat bowling alley pizza? Ah, yes, you had already ate. My mistake.

Oh well. Let us see what you have suggested. Is it just me, or were you were drinking many of the $5 a cup beers? No wonder we never have anything left in petty cash. Let’s deal with these one by one.

Beyonce: Well, somebody does not get the concept. Even if I accept that she's so hot that you pretend she only has a deep tan, the whole Hollywood feminism thing is going to put a damper on the birth rate needed for our battalions. Also, she apparently regularly has sex with Jay-Z which is just ew. Definitely replaceable.

Lady Gaga: You know, there is nothing more embarrassing showing up for the white power parade and find out you should have been wearing the uniform made out of meat and used toilet paper rolls instead of the one made out of bubble wrap and rubber spiders. Or that the opening act is Tony Bennett.

Britney Spears: The skinhead is certainly in her favor, but her martial arts ability with an umbrella leave something to be desired. I mean, I doubt she could hold off more than maybe two elderly security guards with that sloppy technique. Plus we've already declared the entire Federline line to not only to be impure, but probably not human. My guess is he's a sea slug though I am open to other opinions on the matter. For instance, if he was a cockroach, RAID is significantly cheaper than other options.

(to be continued)

Static Ping said...

P!nk: Wrong color, duh. Plus her use of punctuation indicates a mental defective. Plus her love life makes Taylor Swift’s look like Leave It to Beaver. A woman who made out with herself in a music video is probably not what we are trying to present here. Or at least I’m not trying to present that. I’m starting to realize I may be alone in that capacity.

Carrie Underwood: Hmm. Blonde. Very pretty. Very talented. Two problems. First, she sings country music which limits her popularity. We won't be able to overthrow the Jewish cabal without those oily Italians and drunken Irish and (sigh) dumb Polacks from the cities soaking some bullets for us. Second, she dated Tony Romo. Taylor Swift may be unlucky in love, but for goodness sakes at least she has some standards. What’s next? Jessica Simpson? Ugh.

Miley Cyrus: Wait, that's a woman? She looks like a 12-year-old boy with a buzz cut from Bavaria. Plus, we are not going to risk "Achy Breaky Heart" playing while the Grand Wizard climbs the stage. Seriously, how does a dude sing that song and find a woman willing to breed?

Katy Perry: We're pretty sure she was an experiment where an ugly woman's head was transplanted onto a bikini model's body and then given an epic makeover and an autotune implant. The cost of her make-up would bankrupt us. Possibly, also her VD medication, assuming her lyrics are autobiographical.

Christina Aguilera: Katy Perry's makeup would bankrupt us. Christina's would bankrupt us in about 5 minutes.

Avril Lavigne: Wait, she's still alive?

Adele: Golly, she has great pipes, but we have a general rule for our sexpots: no matter how much we publically denounce it, deep down really want to enjoy the wardrobe malfunction. A body made for radio, amirite?

Madonna: My dear, please stop nominating yourself by abusing the write-in process. It’s embarrassing.

Clone Eva Braun and Transplant Her Head Onto Melania Trump: Sure. Beats the mind-control toupee idea. Anyone have money for a research grant? No. Maybe you could tip the strippers with singles from now on, hmm?

I move that we table the matter. Next up: A motion to denounce Grumpy Cat as a mixed breed. The floor recognizes the man with the cat meme poster not wearing pants.

Oso Negro said...

Maybe the minorities suffering from real or perceived grievances could just lay off the whining for a decade. I mean honestly, the last fucking thing you want is for white people to decide to really give you something to cry about.

Apparently this nonsense is based on a song by Jim Colyer:
"The wisdom of Athena
The beauty of Aphrodite
She rules like Hera
So powerful, so mighty

Aryan Goddess
She sustains us
Aryan Goddess
She protects us

Her name is Taylor Swift
Blonde hair and blue eyes
Men worship at her feet
She came from the sky
...etc..."

"The fact that Taylor Swift operates, at least publicly, in predominantly white spaces doesn't really suggest anything notable about her politics.

It does, of course, suggest something notable about ours as a country. But that is a conversation for another time."

Speaking as a white, Christian male, I am so tired of the invitation to have a "conversation".

To often,its code speak for "harangue".

PS And I assume that when black celebs mainly hang out with black folk, it's not "solidarity"?

Jon said...

Taylor looks too much like an old-style stewardess for my taste. Blonde face, too skinny. whoops, I mean "slender"

virgil xenophon said...

@Jon

"slender"

Young Hegelian, thanks for the video.
Yes, all those young ladies could easily serve as models for the figures on a temple frieze, probably doing something exotic for some allegedly spiritual reason.
India has more goddesses than anywhere else, and more than enough pretty women too, who may or may not be an incarnation or aspect of some goddess. So have a care, if you mess with Indian women.
And every one is just as, if not more Aryan as any Nordic maiden.

RJ said...

NPR is officially nuts. Past time to put that nag down.

Cacimbo Cacimbo said...

The blatant racism that is permitted because it is anti-white on NPR's "Codeswitch" is vile.

David said...

She is white supremacy in the voice and flesh. Chick can't help it.

 Because, you know: Taylor Swift. Girl-on-girl.

Anglelyne said...

Alt-right "Aryans" have been trolling the hell out these and related po-faced gits for a while now. I fear the gits will succumb to insanity before they figure out the joke.

mikee said...

Again, NPR demonstrates their own special brand of pure leftist racism, elitism, etc.,....

And the stupid, unbelieving look on their faces whenever they are called on it is even more special.

ken in tx said...

buwaya is right. Aryans are only relatively white, compared to the darker peoples of the sub-continent. Aryans are the majority of the population of Iran and the upper castes of India. Hitler was wrong on so many different levels.
