Twitter meltdown: Liberals flip-out over Taylor Swift birthday message

There’s just no getting around it, Taylor Swift is a doll.

But with her wholesome, All-American good looks aside, Swift has yet another super-power that very few possess – the ability to simultaneously send liberals up a wall while being just as sugary as all the sweet tea in South Carolina.

As reported by Breitbart.com;

Pop star Taylor Swift apparently struck a nerve with leftists and Internet trolls this week after she said she “couldn’t have asked for a better year” in 2017 and thanked her fans in a birthday Instagram post.taylor-swift-apple-music

“I love you guys so much,” Swift captioned a photo taken at a recent London concert. “I couldn’t have asked for a better year, all thanks to you. Thanks for all the birthday wishes. Can’t wait to see what 28 will be like. See you on tour.”

That simple message was apparently too much for some Twitter users — and at least a few media outlets — who questioned how Swift could have a “great year” with all the tragedy occurring in the world, including the election of President Donald Trump.



However, Swift does have her fans who don’t mind standing-up for her;

There were even a couple of Swift defenders that landed a handful of well-aimed haymakers at the liberal crybabies;

Stupid alert – victimhood pimp finds latest oppressors: Smart people

stupid
smart
Smart people suck.

“Stupid people of the world, uhhh…”

Victimhood has always been a lucrative business. Doubt me? Just look at the millions of dollars pulled in by the likes of Al Sharpton, Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton and Jesse Jackson.

Or if you’re anywhere near the University of Iowa, look up student Dan Williams. He’ll give you the lowdown on those with a low IQ.

If you’re lucky, Williams will happily explain to you how unfair it is to the more stupid that dwell amongst us that smart people have a clear “privilege” over them.  And by crackie, that’s just wrong and needs to be stopped, forthwith. And probably fifth and sixthwith, too.

Reported by Thomas Lifson of The American Thinker, “Progressives, crazed with identifying new forms of oppression attached to the currently fashionable catchword privilege, have finally embraced the stupid as a victim class.

Lifson notes one of the more interesting (amusing) passages in Williams’ article;

There are many kinds of privilege besides white privilege: cognitive privilege, for example. We now know that intelligence is not something we have significant control over but is something we are born with. We are living in a society in which success is increasingly linked to one’s intelligence. This is not to say that intelligence is the only factor that is important. All that is implied is that below a certain threshold of intelligence, there are fewer and fewer opportunities. These opportunities are being shifted upward to jobs that require heavier cognitive lifting or else are being replaced by robots. Thus, the accident of having been born smart enough to be able to be successful is a great benefit that you did absolutely nothing to earn. Consequently, you have nothing to be proud of for being smart.

As every schoolchild knows (or at least should know), the Declaration of Independence clearly states:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

Maybe it’s the “self-evident” part that the stupid need explained to them, or possibly that the pursuit of happiness is far from a federal guarantee of happiness.

Nonetheless, Williams makes a point of blaming those gifted with intelligence for the stupid being, well… stupid.

And victims. Don’t forget that the less intelligent are victims of the more intelligent.

For the benefit of Williams and the stupid he claims are victims, allow me to point out that once that whole creation stuff is finished, some rather interesting things happen;

  • Some people are taller than most, some are shorter than most
  • Some people are stronger than most, some are weaker than most
  • Some people are more intelligent than most, some are less intelligent than most

Referring back to the article from The American Thinker,  Lifson correctly opines;

I am not certain if Williams is an actual sophomore, but he certainly is sophomoric.  He understands nothing about intelligence, though he pretends he does.  (In fairness, I was once an undergraduate college student intoxicated with the new ideas I was learning.  And it was my privilege to learn from scholars immersed in classical thought, not progressive propagandists.)
