Nashville, TN — So-called “country music star”, Taylor Swift, rocked the media world yesterday when she came out and endorsed a whole slew of liberal political positions as well gun-grabbing Tennessee Democrat, Phil Bredesen.
Bredesen faces off against Republican Marsha Blackburn in the November 6 U.S. Senate election in Tennessee.
According to a report from FoxNews.com, here’s what Taylor Swift:
“As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn,” Swift wrote in an Instagram post. “Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me.”
She went on to list items that influenced her in support. She said Blackburn has voted against equal pay for woman and believes businesses have the right to refuse service to gay couples.
Bredesen thanked Swift for her support, writing, “I’m honored to have your support and that of so many Tennesseans who are ready to put aside the partisan shouting and get things done.”
Bredesen is a two-time governor of Tennessee, but during this election knowing how conservative Tennessee is, Bredesen is doing everything in his power to moderate his positions.
But he can’t hide from us.
According to the Chattanooga Free Press, Bredesen supports virtually of billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun agenda.
In face, Bloomberg is hosting a fundraiser for Bredesen in NYC.
Here’s what Bredesen had to say in March about his desire for gun control:
But Bredesen said that in the wake of last month’s deadly mass shooting at a Parkland, Fla., high school, “I really think there are practical things that can be done to tighten up this [National Instant Criminal Background Check System] process.
“First of all, just making it universal, [and] properly funding it. So, both the response of NICS and the work that it takes to get the information into that database,” Bredesen added.
The NICS is used to check to seek if persons seeking to buy firearms aren’t eligible based on their criminal background or disqualifying mental health determinations.
“I really think it’s important to find a way to get mental health incorporated into this ” Bredesen said. “I’d like to see a part of it be a judicial process or some process where people’s rights are respected.”
But he noted that “there were so many people out there who thought [the Lakeland shooter] was problematical, and I think a much more robust approval system might well have kept those guns out of his hands.”
Hey @taylorswift13 before you endorse a candidate maybe you should learn something about the candidates
You have no idea what you are talking about
Marsha is a strong woman who will be the next US Senator from Tennessee. https://t.co/J27pRRJvJa
