Huh? T-Swift, AOC, and Warren Team Up to Allow Threats to Music Executives

One problem that a lot of people seem to have with President Donald Trump is that he makes sharp comments and remarks about people that sway the masses and, in particular, Trump fans to feel or even act a certain way in regards to that person. And sadly, some people take it too far.

For example, critics of Trump say that his constant commentary on “fake news” and the media being the “enemy of the people” have put journalists and those involved in the press in harm’s way. Some, such as Democratic New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), have even reported having received death threats after being criticized by President Trump.

It is a sad fact of life that our words do have consequences, and all too often, they can be misinterpreted. However, the President has never called for direct action against anyone. He has never incited anger, hatred, or violence towards those who disagree with him.

The left, on the other hand, has, and they are not apologizing for it or even being criticized. Apparently, what’s good for the goose isn’t the same for the gander.

As you may have heard, celebrity singer/songwriter Taylor Swift is currently in the middle of a rather large feud with music executives from Big Machine Label Group, who owns the master recordings of Swift’s first six albums.

The whole thing is basically a ‘she said/he said’ argument, with Swift saying that Big Machine Label Group’s founder Scott Borchetta and its new owner Scooter Braun will not allow her to sing her older songs. They claim they have ownership of them and that she is contracted to not use those songs until next year.

We aren’t about to get ourselves involved with who is right and who isn’t, as both have accused the other of doing wrong.

What is essential is that Swift just recently escalated things by posting her view of the matter on social media on Thursday, which she certainly has the right to do. However, in her rather lengthy and accusatory post, she asked for her fans’ help.

She said, “Please let Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun know how you feel about this.”

And she got an overwhelming response.

Celebrities and fans from far and wide commented on her post, showing her support and condemning the actions of the music label group.

Among those supporters were Democratic politicians presidential candidate and Senator Elizabeth Warren and crazy AOC herself. Both gave Swift their full support and railed against the “private equity” firm.

AOC said that these were “predatory practices” that have “destroyed the lives of retail workers” and are holding Swifts songs “hostage,” Warren stated that such firms are “costing jobs and crushing entire industries.”

But just as die-hard fans are bound to do when such a call to action is made, some resorted to threats and violence. In fact, there were so many threats and messages of outrage directed toward Braun and Borchetta that Braun had to close his Nashville, Tennessee offices down on Friday.

A source told Fox News that the offices were closed because “hostile death threats” were not only being made to Borchetta and Braun but their employees as well, making them feel unsafe.

Suddenly, because of the reactions of Swift’s fans, everyone that worked for the label was being threatened. Some fans even tried to gain access to personal information about employees’ homes and personal phone numbers.

Yeah, I’d feel pretty unsafe and threatened too.

Now, I doubt this is what T. Swift had in mind when she asked for help. But it happened nonetheless.

And yet, neither Swift nor Warren or AOC seemed to see a problem with this. No comments were made about rebuking this behavior. No apologies were given to the employees or their bosses. And no one else seemed to have a problem with it either.

When Trump makes even the slightest accusation or disparaging remark against someone, the entire world of the left seems to come after him. They claim he is careless, thoughtless, racist, and invoking hate.

But her we have a prominent member of the left doing the same thing, if not worse because she is actually directly calling for action, and nothing is said. Not a single word has been uttered by the liberals.

Talk about hypocrisy and a double standard. Someone needs to call this out, and it needs to happen now.

  1. I truly love your blog.. Excellent colors & theme. Did you build this site yourself? Please reply back as I’m wanting to create my very own blog and would like to learn where you got this from or just what the theme is named. Cheers!

  2. Wow! I heard Taylor Swift on stage. It was after she got an award at the Billboard Music Awards. Taylor really has a beef with Scooter Braun I guess. She was saying he had toxic male privilage. I’m not so sure I agree.

  3. It is mentioned here………”The whole thing is basically a ‘she said/he said’ argument, with Swift saying that Big Machine Label Group’s founder Scott Borchetta and its new owner Scooter Braun will not allow her to sing her older songs. They claim they have ownership of them and that she is contracted to not use those songs until next year.”

  4. This is a major issue in the music business and it’s also becoming a potential problem with these over-rich douches buying up medical practices. Wait until they start limiting the procedures the doctor can perform because they don’t want to pay the higher malpractice premiums.

    The participation of the ‘we’re gonna screw you good’ douches in opposing anything that might limit their ability to ratchet up medical care prices is not going to be good.

    How would respond if you were an entertainer and were told somebody with too much money had bought your schtick, be it songs, jokes or dance routines and you couldn’t use that material for the next year. And if you didn’t know it was coming, I bet everyone that thinks she’s a “B” or wrong on this would beat her to the office and would be looking for some responsible party to dropkick into next year. Now that does limit your income.

    I’m with Taylor, she’s not the first entertainer to be done this way and I’m a firm believer in a level playing field in any transaction. Garbage handlers have generally been looked down on over the years and this group is moving upscale from the rotted business carcasses they usually prey on.

    But, she’s in a good place and quite capable of making their lives miserable. I don’t in any shape, form or fashion condone people who are not the principals in a difference and nobodies families should be threatened, harassed or intimidated for something a family member is involved in.

    Don’t tell me Trump doesn’t incite this kind of response on both sides. I don’t have a boat, floats or waders to handle that load of it. He’s had no trouble attacking people’s families. There have been a number of folks whose families he has attacked and have had groups show up at their homes and they have been threatened.

  5. She is right in her fight with her former label,but she loses me when she demands her “fans” attack the labels owners and employees over her dispute over her songs,this makes her a crying bitch who when challenged uses the old Schick of being a female{poor girl}

  6. Last time I checked, New York City is part of America. AOC is from New York. She’s American.

  7. And that she is.

  8. I think she,mgr, and lawyers were probably more interested in the bling and did not examine contracts carefully enough, nothing to do with her womanhood or her guts. U need to find some other reasoning, musicians are not always the sharpest knife in the drawer.

  9. What do the CONTRACTs that she SIGNED say?

  10. You are so awesome! I do not believe I have read something like that before.

    So wonderful to discover another person with unique thoughts on this
    subject matter. Seriously.. thank you for starting this up.
    This web site is something that is needed on the
    web, someone with a little originality!

  11. I didn’t see anything mentioned about a contract. So, you don’t know all the facts, and Swift is an asshole.

  12. How INSANELY STUPID can TAYLOR Swift Get?!? . . . Oh, never mind – she is a Left Wing Liberal, I must have FORGOTTEN. Team Trump and his allies 2020 – KAGA (Keep America Great Again).

  13. She also thinks she is above adhering to CONTRACTS that she signed when they were to her advantage. Now she thinks she is above the law, the contract was made to her advantage at the time and the restrictions placed were to PROTECT the investment in her that the Music Company made.

  14. Sorry but she is a bitch. She has made so much she is now a elite and she thinks she is better than the rest of us. And as far as AOC helping, you have to be kidding, she should not be in office. She is not a American. What makes it a sad thing is that some think because she is a woman she gets special treatment.

  15. We don’t need her lecturing!

  16. Sorry, This “Chick” is merely a leftist stump. She and the other Obama leg humper Brad Paisley have spewed their hatred towards our DULY ELECTED president on several occasions. Like the slobs in Harveywood, she should mind her own frikken business.

  17. This is when politics get personal!

  18. What isn’t mentioned here and sad is Taylor Swift is a woman and her behavior because she stands up to the music industry and other organizations makes many perceive her to be a bitch rather than a gutsy, innovative entrepreneur! Swift is at the top of the music industry and constantly at the forefront of innovation and rights for musicians and songwriters but because she’s not some guy is constantly criticized! Imagine if a guy had asked his friends to help, this wouldn’t even be a story! Good for Taylor!!
