美國期中選舉將在11月6日舉行,美國流行樂天后泰勒絲8日破天荒打破沉默,在社群平台「Instagram」發文,向1億1200萬名追蹤者公開宣示將在期中選舉支持民主黨的候選人。共和黨籍的美國總統川普當天不滿地反嗆泰勒絲,表示他對泰勒絲音樂的喜愛減少了25%。

美國流行樂天后泰勒絲(Taylor Swift)在南部田納西州(Tennessee)成長,她8日在「Instagram」發布長文,宣布她將在期中選舉把選票投給民主黨在田納西州提名的聯邦眾議員候選人庫柏(Jim Cooper)與聯邦參議員候選人布雷德森(Phil Bredesen)。這是泰勒絲首度表明政治立場,這篇貼文刊出後,旋即在社群媒體掀起熱議,短短一天就獲得逾160萬按讚數。

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

I’m writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which I’ll be voting in the state of Tennessee. In the past I’ve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now. I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country. I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent. I cannot vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love. Running for Senate in the state of Tennessee is a woman named Marsha Blackburn. As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn. Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me. She voted against equal pay for women. She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape. She believes businesses have a right to refuse service to gay couples. She also believes they should not have the right to marry. These are not MY Tennessee values. I will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives. Please, please educate yourself on the candidates running in your state and vote based on who most closely represents your values. For a lot of us, we may never find a candidate or party with whom we agree 100% on every issue, but we have to vote anyway. So many intelligent, thoughtful, self-possessed people have turned 18 in the past two years and now have the right and privilege to make their vote count. But first you need to register, which is quick and easy to do. October 9th is the LAST DAY to register to vote in the state of TN. Go to vote.org and you can find all the info. Happy Voting! 

Taylor Swift(@taylorswift)分享的貼文 於 張貼

泰勒絲向來公開為女權發聲,她也以「女性主義者」自居,但她始終不曾公開談論政治立場。她8日在貼文裡提到首度打破沉默的原因:「過去我一直不願公開表達政治觀點,但由於過去2年來發生在我生命與世界上的幾件事,現在我有了截然不同的想法。無論是過去或未來,我永遠都投給那些保護人權、爭取人權的候選人,我相信這個國家的所有人民都應享有人權。我相信爭取LGBTQ族群權利是正確的事,我認為任何基於性傾向與性別的歧視都是錯誤,我們仍能發現這個國家的體系歧視有色人種,我認為這種歧視駭人、令人作嘔、十分普遍。我無法投給那種不願為所有美國人爭取尊嚴的候選人。」

泰勒絲譴責共和黨候選人:她嚇壞我了

現任田納西州聯邦參議員是共和黨籍的柯克(Bob Corker),他在去年宣布將於本屆任期結束後退休,目前民主黨提名的田納西州前州長布雷德森(Phil Bredesen)與田納西州共和黨籍現任聯邦女眾議員布萊克本(Marsha Blackburn)對決,角逐該州聯邦參議員席次。

泰勒絲也提及自己不支持布萊克本的原因:「她(布萊克本)在國會的投票記錄嚇壞我了。她投票反對男女同工同酬,反對重新授權《防止婦女受暴法》(VAWA),該法防止婦女遭到家暴、跟蹤騷擾、約會性侵。她認為企業有權拒絕服務同性伴侶,並認為同性伴侶不該享有結婚權。這些不是我的『田納西價值』。」

川普:現在我沒那麼喜歡她的音樂了

美國總統川普(Donald Trump)8日嗆泰勒絲:「布萊克本在田納西州做得很好,目前她的支持度大幅領先……她是很棒的女性,我敢說泰勒絲根本不瞭解她,我對泰勒絲音樂作品的喜愛減少了25%。」

川普曾自稱是多位歌手的歌迷,包括20世紀美國流行樂壇傳奇歌手法蘭克.辛納屈(Frank Sinatra)與美國知名饒舌歌手阿姆(Eminem)等。川普在2016年角逐美國總統大位之前,曾對泰勒絲發表正面評價:2012年,他在推特好幾次讚美泰勒絲「極棒」、「非常好」。

民主黨籍的田納西州聯邦參議員候選人布雷德森8日在推特寫道:「布萊克本。看看妳逼她(泰勒絲)做了什麼,泰勒絲不喜歡妳的小把戲,她希望田納西人知道妳在(華府的)沼澤(swamp)待得夠久了,華府是時候需要一些新鮮空氣了。」
