Taylor Swift’s meteoric rise is a government ‘psyop’ to win the election for Joe Biden.Former Trump Administration officials and other far-right figures have long speculated this about the pop megastar due to her politics and popularity.But in recent days they have rediscovered a 2019 NATO conference presentation about combating misinformation, which they believe is evidence.
Swift was only mentioned in passing as an example of an influencer big enough for the government to work with in promoting a particular message.Jesse Watters on Tuesday night put the conspiracy theory into the mainstream, despite admitting he ‘obviously has no evidence’.
Have you ever wondered why or how she blew up like this?’ he asked, implying the government orchestrated Swift becoming the biggest celebrity of 2023 so she could be used as a covert Democratic Party agent.’Well, around four years ago, the Pentagon psychological operations unit floated turning Taylor Swift into an asset during a NATO meeting.
‘What kind of asset? A psyop for combatting online misinformation.’Yeah, that’s real. The Pentagon psyop unit pitched NATO on turning Taylor Swift into an asset.’Watters ended his spiel by admitting he ‘obviously has no evidence’ that Swift was ‘a front for a covert political agenda’.
‘If we did, we’d share it… but we’re curious because the popstar who endorsed Biden is urging millions of her followers to vote,’ he said.However, Watters’ characterization of the presentation was not accurate, as Swift was discussed for a matter of seconds in a 90-minute presentation.
The speech was also not by a ‘Pentagon psyop unit’, but Alicia Marie Bargar, a then-research engineer at Johns Hopkins University who now works at Shopify.Her presentation at the International Conference on Cyber Conflict conference in August 2019 was titled ‘Challenges and Opportunities to Counter Information Operations Through Social Network Analysis and Theory’.
