The Politics Of A Taylor Swift Parody
There is a great parody of Taylor Swift’s “22″ floating around the internet. Rather than finding inspiration from ex-boyfriends this song takes aim at a different set of pathetic men: the 22 Senators who did not vote “yes” on the Violence Against Women Act.
The United States Senate, with a huge majority - 78 to 22 - passed a version of the Violence Against Women Act that includes protections for members of the LGBTQ community, immigrant women and Native American women. Now it goes to the House of Representatives, where the minority leaders have introduced their own bill that strips some of these protections.
Think about the gall of those 22 senators who said no to women's safety. We've thought about them a lot. In fact, we made this catchy parody of Taylor Swift's "22" in their (dis)honor. Watch it & share with 22 of your friends.
