Kirsters Baish| It seems like every single time there is a tragedy like that which occurred in Las Vegas this past weekend during the Route 91 Harvest Festival, the Left uses it as an opportunity to politicize the outcome. This time, they are dead set on enforcing stricter gun control policies, and sadly liberal elitist celebrities have decided to step in. There is, however, one celebrity who took the opposite approach and decided to worry more about the victims than the politics.
Leftist elite celebrities seem to think that they have a better understanding of politics than more than half of America who voted for President Trump, and they seem to think that because they’re famous their opinions and viewpoints matter more than anyone else. It’s pretty ironic that these are the same people that claimed President Trump didn’t have the credentials to be President of the United States, but they have the credentials to tell everyone in America what to think. Jimmy Kimmel, for example, believes that he knows all when it comes to gun control, but in reality, he is a pony boy for the Left.
Taylor Swift is one celebrity who decided to take a different approach to the Las Vegas massacre. She didn’t spit out her views on gun control in one direction or the other, but instead she made it about the victims. She had multiple bouquets of flowers delivered to a Los Angeles Police Department station when she found out that one of their own was one of 527 injured during the rampage.
People Magazine reported that the LAPD’s Foothill Community Police Station received “multiple bouquets” of sympathy flower arrangements following the shooting where their off-duty police officer was injured by one of Stephen Paddock’s bullets during the mass shooting. They explained that the flowers came from a famous celebrity.
LAPD Intel Analyst Kinberlee Binder made an Instagram post about the gesture, but it has been made private. She wrote “Talk about a class act! @taylorswift sent multiple bouquets of flowers and plants to our station, as one of our officers was shot in Las Vegas last night. This is one of the smaller arrangements. Beautiful flowers can bring a smile to anyone’s face. Much respect.”
Taylor Swift had already sent out her own tweet on the shooting explaining that she wanted to send her condolences to everyone affected by the mass shooting. She did NOT make a political statement, however.
The Left has come forward to bash Swift for her actions, instead of praising her for acting so kindly. I guess they really wanted her to start pushing gun control and yell at any American who exercises their Second Amendment right. But, what Swift decided to do has a lot more meaning than using the loss of so many Americans as a political statement.
Here is one ungrateful and snotty reaction to Taylor Swift’s gesture:
If the Left truly thinks that the families that lost loved ones during this horrific massacre really want to be the target of political debates, they’re wrong. This is a time for remembering the men and women who lost their lives on Sunday night and a time to honor those who put their lives on the line to help others. We must also keep those who were injured in our prayers. In my personal opinion, Taylor Swift just earned a few points with a lot of Americans.
