The ultra-far right has had a pretty festive last 18 months, what with feeling like they have a true friend now in the White House. But as the Washington Post reports, the hopes and dreams of a plethora of young white supremacists were dashed last week when pop singing superstar Taylor Swift took to social media to urge people to vote and to pledge her loyalty to...wait for it...Democrats! That primal scream you heard was a whole bunch of pasty-skinned nut jobs who had somehow convinced themselves that the pop diva was a Trump fan. Chatter around the alt right 4chan and Reddit channels was varying degrees of disbelief and disappointment, and even claims it was all an elaborate hoax perpetrated by “Democratic MK ultra forces from above.” Why, they haven’t been this bent out of shape since the famous tin foil hat shortage of ’89.
