    I was playing the “take a shot everytime Swift endorses Biden” game. I am angrily sober…

      Conspiracy theorists are hard at work trying to fit today’s events into an updated conspiracy theory that shows that her silence is actually part of the deep state plan.

        The number of “look at this happy woman enjoying herself” angry posts is just the best.

        These sad fucks just telling on themselves as they rage at simple human joy.

          I was looking forward to sneering at those but haven’t seen any. Apparently I’m much better at creating a safe space away from the right wing loonies than I realized.

          Edit: Ah, the secret is twitter. Of course. I see them now. lol

          I called it the Swiftiebowl and apparently someone did a meme about the next Madden game that it included Taylor Swift and people lost their minds.

          From another outsider:

          • I think Taylor Swift is married to a player of one of the teams competing for the superbowl.
          • She previously encouraged young people to vote (but not for whom), which would be bad for Republicans as they’re unpopular with young people.
          • Right wing media cooked up a theory that the super bowl was fixed so the team of Taylor Swift’s husband would win, resulting in Taylor Swift being called to the victory celebration where she then would endorse Joe Biden.

          As far as I take it from this thread, the team actually won, but the endorsement didn’t happen, confusing conspiracy nutters everywhere.

    Most of the camera shots I saw of the “crowds” were of Taylor Swift. (I saw one other person, maybe?) Whoo, boy! I bet that triggered some rednecks.

          My headlines I’m seeing “stick” are complaints about Usher’s halftime show and Andra Day singing Lift Every Voice and Sing.

          But yeah, I see Taylor Swift stuff if I specifically search for it. But the anti-Black Artist thing seems to be the thing sticking. I dunno, lets see what happens tomorrow morning.

            My memory is fuzzy, but haven’t most of the halftime performers been black over the last several years?

            It seems like an odd thing to complain about now… whatever.

              Nah man, racial politics have penetrated into Football. The adults want it to go away because its mildly embarrassing to the league. But there’s a large group of racists who want to stir up anti-Black shit here.

                I’d say they’ve all been pretty disappointing since Prince. He set the bar pretty high so it’s not really a fair comparison.

            It’s interesting watching their narrative form. Often they don’t have an opinion on a subject until Fox News tells them to.

              I have just yesterday finished reading a collection of stories about Soviet times, and there was a story about how editors were forbidden to print information about an earthquake until the central information bureau published that info. Something along the lines of “I felt the earthquake, too, but it didn’t happen until we got a green light from tops. And after we got one I will say that you brilliantly predicted the earthquake’s existence”

            Ah yes. Racists getting upset about the “Black National Anthem”, painfully unaware that if they go to church, there’s a good chance it’s in their church hymnal.

          Dark Brandon isn’t meant to be serious. It’s meant to mock the Republicans who say, “Let’s go Brandon” (meaning fuck you Biden) and it references the conspiracy theory that he’s a devil-worshipping communist by referring to him as “dark.”

          Anytime you see Dark Brandon, it’s the left mocking the extreme right for being idiots.

        The most marketable person on the planet is dating a dude on the chiefs. She recently asked people in the US to vote. That is bad for Republicans (regressives). Now the idiots say she is working for the “deep state.” You can’t use logic to change someone that believes themselves into it.

        A billionaire who makes very middling music goes to a football match to see her football player boyfriend play. Somehow this is a conspiracy.

        Taylor Swift is dating someone who plays for the Kansas City Chiefs, the Chiefs just won the Super Bowl. There were some very smart people online who had a conspiracy theory that the entire relationship was fake and that the Chiefs were going to win the Super Bowl so that Taylor Swift could endorse Joe Biden to all of America after they won.

          I mean, Fox News anchors had entire segments about her potentially endorsing Biden if the chiefs win and how she should “stay out of politics”, as if they don’t impact everyone.

            It’s only ‘stay out of politics’ when they support the left. If some mouth breather like Gina Carrano opens her stupid mouth about politics in their favor, they’re all for it.

    I wouldn’t have cared, but I ended up rooting for the Chiefs because it would piss off people I don’t like. Heh heh heh.

    I started watching near the end of the 4th quarter, and it turned out to be a surprisingly good ending. It was anyone’s game, right up to the end, and only the second superbowl in history to go into overtime.

    I generally don’t like football, so I watched it Live from Bikini Bottom on Nickelodeon.

      As a Ravens fan and a leftist I agree. The season was rigged from the start. I don’t know how it just was and no I won’t listen to reason.

      If it gets it means Biden wins in November I’ll grudgingly accept it though.
