Little Games, Taylor Swift and MSM

Little Games


After a recent blogger labeled Taylor Swift as a white supremacist, she fought back and threatened legal action if the story were not retracted. The wonderful and powerful, ACLU, issued a statement essentially saying that Taylor Swift is empowering white supremacists by not sharing her political beliefs and that her latest song, “Look What You Made Me Do”, had symbolism suggestive of white supremacy. WTF? Yes, this is the world in which we live.


Taylor has refrained from sharing her political beliefs publicly and rightfully so as her beliefs will undoubtedly alienate roughly half of her audience regardless of which side of the political spectrum that she identifies with.


 The public constantly criticizes celebrities who do go public with their politics, especially if those politics are conservative. Taylor is a smart young lady. Why would she share her politics? We buy her music because it is entertaining. I personally belt out the words when I hear her songs played on the radio, much to the entertainment of people who happen to be parked next to me at stoplights. Yeah, I’m that girl. Don’t judge me.


The song is presumed to be about all the people who have treated Taylor unfairly, but let’s see if we can decipher some politics in the lyrics.


I don't like your little games
Don't like your tilted stage
The role you made me play
Of the fool, no, I don't like you
I don't like your perfect crime
How you laugh when you lie
You said the gun was mine
Isn't cool, no, I don't like you (oh!)


Who plays little games? It seems most politicians do play little games. Tilted stage could refer to the tilted stage that Kanye West uses or perhaps it is a dig at a political party that tilts their politics and spins issues. Playing the role of the fool. Who has made a fool of Taylor? The media tries desperately and a recent Marie Claire article demanded that Taylor reveal her political beliefs immediately. It is truly sad that we live in a society that media believe they have a right to an entertainer’s private thoughts and beliefs. The verse continues with, “I don’t like your perfect crime”. Aha!!! We have it figured out now. Who has committed the perfect crime or crimes? This has to be Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Crime Cartel. The CCC is the new KKK. Who laughs when they lie? Again, this is obviously Hillary. But now we get into something about a gun. Who has issues with guns and gun control? Hillary does. Minutes after the mass shooting in Las Vegas she took to Twitter to push a Silencer Bill, even though a silencer was not used and would have caused barrel degradation and could have potentially ended the shooting sooner.


But I got smarter, I got harder in the nick of time
Honey, I rose up from the dead, I do it all the time
I've got a list of names and yours is in red, underlined
I check it once, then I check it twice, oh!

Ooh, look what you made me do
Look what you made me do
Look what you just made me do
Look what you just made me
Ooh, look what you made me do
Look what you made me do
Look what you just made me do
Look what you just made me do


The chorus illustrates how she toughened up and recreated herself after attacks on her reputation and how she has a list and one specific person is underlined in red. That person should be concerned, whoever it is. Or is this simply a reference to voting? You would underline the candidates on a sample ballot to be used as a reference in the voting booth with the vast amount of candidates and amendments to vote on, it is a wise choice. And being extra thorough in double checking your ballot for accuracy, as voting machines have been known to cast votes erroneously, is always prudent. The, “Look what you made me do”, could refer to who she was forced to vote for. Some candidates are so horrible that we would vote for a candidate that we don’t totally believe in to prevent a horrible person from becoming president. I have to admit that with Trump’s “locker room talk”, I was not happy about having to vote for him at that time. But it was the right thing to do and I am so super glad that I did now.


I don't like your kingdom keys
they once belonged to me
you ask me for a place to sleep
locked me out and threw a feast (what?)
The world moves on, another day, another drama, drama
But not for me, not for me, all I think about is karma
And then the world moves on, but one thing's for sure
Maybe I got mine, but you'll all get yours.


Kingdom keys could refer to our nation. Once belonged to me, could refer to freedom and liberties that we had prior to the Patriot Act or perhaps unsustainable mass immigration. Who asked for a place to sleep? Sounds like illegal immigrants and refugees to me. “Locked me out and threw a feast. What?”, now it really sounds like illegal immigrants and refugees that come into the country and receive benefits. “The world moves on another day, another drama, drama”, in looking at the world we see constant drama with sex scandals perpetrated members of the entertainment industry and government. “But not for me, not for me all I think about is karma”, and we are all hoping that karma will catch up to the CCC, “you’ll all get yours”. Let’s hope so. Lock her up, Mr. President.

I don't trust nobody and nobody trusts me
I'll be the actress starring in your bad dreams
I don't trust nobody and nobody trusts me
I'll be the actress starring in your bad dreams
(Look what you made me do)
(Look what you made me do)
(Look what you just made me do)
"I'm sorry, the old Taylor can't come to the phone right now"
"Oh, 'cause she's dead!" (oh!)


Who doesn’t trust Taylor? The ACLU explained that quite well. Liberals don’t trust Taylor Swift because she doesn’t share her politics. Be the actress in their bad dreams, Taylor. They deserve to have nightmares about you after the way they have treated you. And then the most epic line of the song, “I’m sorry the old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now. Why? Oh, ‘cause she’s dead”. In true Phoenix style, Taylor rises from the ashes to recreate herself and be stronger and better than before.


If there is any truth to this, we don’t currently know. I know I would love it if Taylor Swift shared my political beliefs but I respect her for keeping them private. It’s a smart business move. Though even if she were a dreaded, Democrat, I would still jam out to her tunes. Taylor Swift rocks!!! And, yeah, I didn’t catch any references to white supremacy, did you?
