[Daily Signal] In a recent hit single, “You Need to Calm Down,” Taylor Swift mocks people who stand firm in their beliefs about sexuality, asking that they stop their bigotry and “calm down.”

VIDEO: [Global News] 2019 is the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots in New York City’s Greenwich Village. The LGBT community celebrates the three-day event as the ‘revolution’ that had worldwide implications for their liberation.

The music video, which went viral, depicts conservatives as ignorant hicks who reject gays and are driven by animus. They are ugly, dated, and lack basic hygiene. By contrast, the LGBT folks in the video are bright, happy, and boast perfectly coiffed hair.

And the 53% figure is down from 63% in 2016.
