Outside of Rapper Kanye West, it is fair to say that most, if not all, politically opinionated pop singers are liberal-minded and are actively seeking President Donald Trump’s demise.
Ariana Grande is as Socialist-minded as they come and has been actively registering young voters at her concerts in support of Sen. Bernie Sanders.
“MY GUY. thank you, Senator Sanders, for coming to my show, making my whole night and for all that you stand for !” Grande tweeted last week. “@headcountorg and i are doing our best to make you proud. we’ve already registered 20k+ young voters at my shows alone. also i will never smile this hard again promise.”
Grande’s tweet was met by harsh criticism from Republican congressional candidate Irina Vilarino, who labeled the pop singer as being one of those “young & dumb” kids who don’t know any better when it comes to politics.
@ArianaGrande this ideology your [sic] promoting has caused more problems than you will ever know,” Vilariño tweeted. “We must do a better job educating our youth. In this social media society of ours, we don’t have the luxury of allowing time to play its part. Young & dumb today has major consequences.”
Vilarino, who is running against Progress Caucus member Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (D), is very familiar with Socialism considering that she immigrated to the U.S. during the Mariel boatlift out of Communist Cuba.
Vilarino went further, telling the Conservative website The Daily Wire “Socialists always breed on vulnerable ground,” adding that socialist like Sanders and others “disguise their heinous ideology as social justice in order to attract ￼the Idealistic Utopian searching youth.”
“It seems everyone wants to be a social hero or at least appear as one. Celebrities even more so. It’s almost as if that is their way of contributing to society for taking a bigger bite out of the apple than they can chew.
“What Bernie, AOC and the likes of them are proposing to turn this country into has already been tried in many countries around the world and failed,” Vilariño continued. “Even in our very own hemisphere, we have examples … socialism disguised as social justice.￼”
“However, the only thing they’ve effectively accomplished is to turn these countries into poverty stricken misery ridden repressive states. It is no coincidence people are willing to risk their lives in order to make it to the United States at all costs and not the other way around,” Vilariño added. “The United States has fought socialism around the world; it’s unconscionable that they are proposing such a destructive ideology in our very own mainland.￼￼ In the end, it’s a model that goes against individual freedom and against the essence of what is America.”
Vilarino is in a contested Republican primary race against firefighter Omar Blanco and is the hands-on favorite to win the primary race.
