Taylor Swift Is an "Aryan Princess" With a Racist Agenda, Say Internet Neo-Nazis

Out there on the web, there's a group of Swifties who believe the blonde-haired, blue-eyed Taylor Swift is a secret Nazi poised to start a racial war when the time is right. That conspiracy theory alone is a major hint as to who it could be: Neo-Nazis and the hipster-white supremacist subculture "alt right," who seem to have found a leader in Swift, whether she knows it or not.  

Rather than just an extremely rich pop icon with an empire beneath her feet, these folks have deemed Swift an "Aryan goddess" who has been peddling white supremacist views through her wildly popular music and innocent public image. 

Blame her "sculpted Aryan form and angelic demeanor," Andre Anglin, who writes for the white supremacist blog the Daily Stormer, told Broadly. The community manager for the Facebook group named Taylor Swift for Fascist Europe told Broadly that Swift "embodies the Aryan 'spirit'" of pure femininity (unlike that reckless Miley Cyrus, Anglin pointed out.)

Swift "is simply waiting for the time when Donald Trump makes it safe for her to come out and announce her Aryan agenda to the world. Probably, she will be betrothed to Trump's son, and they will be crowned American royalty," Anglin told Broadly.

Anglin believes Swift became a Nazi icon since she released "Teardrops on My Guitar" in 2006. But in 2013, theories about Swift's Nazi association went viral when a Pinterest user began misattributing Adolf Hitler quotes to Swift. Pinterest didn't take down the memes because of parody rights.  

While Swift has tiptoed around the occasional race controversy, she is usually private about her political views, although she once alluded to supporting Barack Obama's presidency to Rolling Stone in 2009.
