Pop star Taylor Swift has increasingly revealed her progressive political views in recent years, admonishing gun owners and other popular left-wing targets in social media rants.
“No one should have to go to school in fear of gun violence,” Swift wrote in an Instagram post following a mass shooting in March 2018. “Or to a nightclub. Or to a concert. Or to a movie theater. Or to their place of worship.”
“I’ve made a donation to show my support for the students, for the March For Our Lives campaign, for everyone affected by these tragedies, and to support gun reform,” she added. “I’m so moved by the Parkland High School students, faculty, by all families and friends of victims who have spoken out, trying to prevent this from happening again.”
Considering her support of gun control, it should come as no surprise that Swift has become the darling of communist China.
Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba is celebrating Singles’ Day, which could be considered the Chinese equivalent of Black Friday. They raked in over $30 billion in sales on Monday, and the festivities were kicked off with a livestreamed performance in Shanghai by the globalist musical idol.
Swift’s performance can be seen here:
Although Swift plays the role of a progressive, she doesn’t seem too concerned about humanitarian conditions in China. China is one of the most despotic police states in the world, and they are rapidly exporting those conditions abroad. The ongoing freedom protests in Hong Kong have highlighted China’s grotesque and brutal practices on the world stage.
After a demonstrator was shot dead in the streets of Hong Kong on Friday, the cops were once again shooting at protesters again just two days later:
The death of a Hong Kong college student on Friday (Nov. 8) should have been a moment for the government and police to allow the city to mourn. Instead, the city woke up this morning (Nov. 11) to the shocking sight of a police officer shooting at protesters at close range.
As protesters in Sai Wan Ho, on the eastern part of Hong Kong Island, blocked traffic early this morning, a police officer grabbed one protester, and then shot at two others, according to video footage (warning: graphic). The cameraman who filmed the encounter told the New York Times that one of them, who was shot in the abdomen, appeared to be “semi-conscious.” He suffered injuries to his liver, and underwent emergency surgery in a local hospital, the Hong Kong Free Press reported. A media officer for the hospital told Quartz he was transferred to the Intensive Care Unit where he remains in critical condition.
At an afternoon press conference, a police spokesman said that the officer had tried to remove barricades from the road, which protesters had used to disrupt traffic. A group of about six protesters then approached the officer, at least one of whom appeared to be wielding a metal rod, the spokesman said. The officer at this point drew his revolver, but protesters continued to approach and the officer fired a single shot, hitting one protester in his right abdomen. The officer then fired another two shots as two other protesters tried to intervene. Those two shots did not hit anyone. Police have now arrested two people in relation to this incident, which is being investigated.
“At that time, the officer felt that his revolver would be snatched and the consequences disastrous,” said the police spokesman.
The shooting led protesters to gather in the city’s Central business district at lunchtime, where police fired multiple rounds of tear gas. Police also fired tear gas on one university campus. In the early evening some protesters continued to try to set up makeshift barricades on downtown roads. Major companies sent workers home early.
The city’s chief executive Carrie Lam, speaking this evening, condemned protesters and repeated her position that there would be no independent inquiry into police actions, a key protester demand.
Considering her hypocritical ideals in lieu of selling out to China, perhaps Kid Rock was correct in the vulgar assessment of Swift’s motives that he issued in a social media post over the summer:
Taylor Swift wants to be a democrat because she wants to be in movies….period. And it looks like she will suck the door knob off Hollyweird to get there. Oldest move in the book. Good luck girl.

Harvard Law School Planning Conference to Smear and Silence Homeschoolers
It seems doubtful the conference will feature parents’ rights advocates.
Harvard Law School is planning a conference on the topic of homeschooling, with speakers and content of the tenative June summit suggesting the event will be very negative towards the practice.
The Homeschooling Summit: Problems, Politics, and Prospects for Reform is planned for June 18-19th. The conference listing states that a focus of the conference will be to “discuss child rights in connection with homeschooling in the United States.”
Further investigation of the conference’s premise suggests it’s outright hostile to the notion of homeschooling entirely. One event scheduled for the second day of the conference is entitled “Concerns with Homeschooling.”
The Home School Legal Defense Association questioned what seemed to be the outright hostility to homeschooling that will be part of the event, pointing out the concerning public statements of some of the educators participating in the summit.
The pro-homeschooling rights group highlighted the anti-homeschooling track records of the event’s speakers.
Some, such as College of William and Mary law professor James Dwyer, have fundamentally questioned the rights of parents to homeschool their children. Dwyer has argued in law review article that “the claim that parents should have child-rearing rights—rather than simply being permitted to perform parental duties and to make certain decisions on a child’s behalf in accordance with the child’s rights—is inconsistent with principles deeply embedded in our law and morality.”
It almost seems anachronistic that the fixings of elite cultural liberalism are maintaining themselves in the midst of the national Chinese coronavirus epidemic, an event that has actually forced the American public and policy makers to focus on things that matter. This anti-homeschooling summit might end up being cancelled because of the coronavirus epidemic. But it any case, Harvard Law’s academic elites seem intent to question the rights of homeschoolers either way.
