泰勒·斯威夫特宣布政治观点

This is What's Trending Today...

这里是今日热点节目。

Taylor Swift is one of the biggest names in American pop music. Millions of fans follow the singer-songwriter on social media for the latest in music and fashion.

泰勒·斯威夫特是美国流行音乐领域最响亮的名字之一。数百万粉丝在社交媒体上关注这位创作歌手,以便一手的音乐和时尚资讯。

On Sunday night, Swift did something that she has never done before. She announced her opposition to one candidate, and her support for others, running in November's midterm elections.

上周日晚,斯威夫特做了一些她之前从未做过的事。她公开宣布反对某位参加11月的中期选举的候选人,并表示了对其他人的支持。

Swift wrote, "due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years...I cannot support Marsha Blackburn. Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me." She added that she "will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives."

斯威夫特写道:“由于过去两年间我的生活和世界发生了一些事....我不能支持玛莎·布莱克本。她在国会的投票记录令我心惊胆颤。”她还补充道:“我会投票给参议员菲尔·布雷德森和众议院议员吉姆·库珀。”

Blackburn is a Republican Party lawmaker representing the state of Tennessee. She serves in the United States House of Representatives. Swift wrote that Blackburn is against gay rights, equal pay for women and legislation to protect women from domestic violence, stalking and date rape.

布莱克本是代表田纳西州参选的共和党议员,在美国众议院任职。斯威夫特写道:“布莱克本反对同性恋权益、反对妇女同工同酬,还反对立法保护妇女免受家庭暴力、跟踪和约会强奸之害。”

President Donald Trump, who has campaigned for Blackburn, dismissed Swift's opinion of the candidate. He said, Swift "doesn't know anything about her. And let's say that I like Taylor's music about 25 percent less now, OK?"

曾助选布莱克本的唐纳德·特朗普总统驳回了斯威夫特对候选人的看法。他表示“斯威夫特对布莱克本一无所知。现在我对泰勒音乐的喜爱程度要减少25%了,怎样?”

The singer also asked her 112 million followers on Instagram to register to vote. She wrote, "October 9th is the LAST DAY to register to vote in the state of TN. Go to vote.org and you can find all the info. Happy Voting!"

这位歌手还邀请她的1.12亿的Ins粉丝去注册进行投票。她写道:“10月9日事田纳西州登记投票的最后一天。去投票网站(vote.org)投票,大家可以找到所有的信息。祝大家投票愉快!”

The non-profit website vote.org reported a flood of new voter registration after the post. A spokeswoman told Buzzfeed, "We are up to 65,000 registrations in a single 24-hour period since T. Swift's post."

非营利网站vote.org报告称,在泰特发帖之后涌现一大波新选民登记的情况。一位女发言人告诉嗡嗡喂网站:“在泰勒发帖之后的短短24小时内,就多达6.5万人在我们网站注册。”

The site reported that 190,178 new voters were registered in the entire month of September and 56,669 were registered in August. The vote.org spokeswoman said, "Thank God for Taylor Swift."

该网站报告称,在整个九月份共有190178名新选民注册,二在八月份共56669人注册。投票网站vote.org的发言人表示:“万分感谢泰勒·斯威夫特。”

Republican Party politician and television host, Mike Huckabee, however, dismissed that idea. He tweeted that Swift "won't impact election unless we allow 13 yr old girls to vote."

不过共和党政客及电视节目主持人麦克·赫卡比驳斥了这个想法。他发推文表示“除非我们允许13岁女孩投票,斯威夫特是影响不到选举的。”

And that's What's Trending Today.

附霉霉声明全文及翻译:

I'm writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which I'll be voting in the state of Tennessee. In the past I've been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now. I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country. I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent.

我发的这篇帖子是关于11月6日即将到来的中期选举的,我将在田纳西州投票。过去我不愿意公开发表我的政治观点,但由于过去两年间,我的生活和世界发生了一些事,我对政治有了相当大的改观。我将一如既往地根据候选人在保护和争取我认为我国所有人都该享有的人权方面的表现进行投票。我相信LGBTQ(性少数群体)关于权利的斗争,我认为任何基于性倾向或性别的歧视都是错误的。我认为在这个国家所存在的种族主义体系,依然是令人可怕的、令人厌恶而且普遍的存在。

I cannot vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love. Running for Senate in the state of Tennessee is a woman named Marsha Blackburn. As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn. Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me. She voted against equal pay for women. She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape. She believes businesses have a right to refuse service to gay couples. She also believes they should not have the right to marry. These are not MY Tennessee values. I will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives. Please, please educate yourself on the candidates running in your state and vote based on who most closely represents your values. For a lot of us, we may never find a candidate or party with whom we agree 100% on every issue, but we have to vote anyway.

我不能投票给一个不愿为全体美国人民争取尊严的人,不管他们是什么肤色、什么性别或者他们爱谁。田纳西州竞选参议员是一个叫玛莎·布莱克本的女人。就如同过去一样,我想继续为女性投票,但我却不能支持布莱克本。她在国会的投票记录令我心惊胆颤。她投票反对妇女同工同酬,反对重新授权以图保护妇女免受家庭暴力、跟踪和约会强奸的《反对对妇女施暴法》。她认为企业有权拒绝为同性恋夫妇提供服务,她还认为同性恋不应该有结婚的权利。这与我的田纳西价值观格格不入。我将会投票给参议员菲尔·布雷德森和众议院议员吉姆·库珀。拜托大家在为自己州投票时要小心谨慎,选择与你们价值观最接近的候选人。我们大部分人可能永远都找不到一个在所有方面都百分之百契合要求的候选人或党派,但是无论如何我们都必须投票。

So many intelligent, thoughtful, self-possessed people have turned 18 in the past two years and now have the right and privilege to make their vote count. But first you need to register, which is quick and easy to do. October 9th is the LAST DAY to register to vote in the state of TN. Go to vote.org and you can find all the info. Happy Voting!

在过去两年里,太多头脑聪明、思虑周全的年轻人已经年满18岁了,他们有权利和特权赋予自己的选票价值。但是首先大家需要注册,注册方便又快捷。10月9日是在田纳西州注册投票的最后一天,去Vo.Org,你就能找到所有的信息。祝大家投票愉快!
