Racists, Trump fans and Chuck C Johnson join together in #BoycottStarWarsVII crusade

I see what you did there.
I see what you did there.

Good news for Star Wars fans: when you finally get your chance to go see Star Wars: The Force Awakens in theaters, you won’t find yourself stuck sitting next to a white supremacist. Or Chuck C. Johnson.

Yes, it’s true, #BoycottStarWarsVII is a real thing, brought to you by more or less the same motley crew of racist trolls and “alternative right”-wingers who catapulted the term “cuckservative” into mainstream Republican discourse not that long ago.

Their complaint? That the upcoming episode in the Star Wars saga, directed by JJ Abrams, supports “race mixing” and therefore “white genocide.” Because one of the main characters is, you know, B-L-A-C-K. And some of the others are B-R-O-W-N. Oh, and JJ Abrams is a J-J-JEW.

I’ll let this Twitter dude explain.

He’s also apparently worried about property values in the far-away galaxy where Star Wars takes place.

Naturally, the boycotters took this as an excuse to make and post an assortment of new, Star-Wars-centric racist memes.

Others used the boycott as an excuse to post some old favorites:

https://twitter.com/awyattman88/status/656169620433469440

Do any of these putative Star Wars boycotters actually give two shits about Star Wars? Do they know how many suns rise and set on Tatooine? Could they tell a sarlacc from a hole in the ground?

Nah. Most of these guys are fake geeks trying to use the phony “boycott” as a way to spread some of their favorite white supremacist catchphrases into mainstream discourse — notably their daffy contention that “diversity = white genocide.”

https://twitter.com/officialCritDis/status/656268371407826944

https://twitter.com/KatieFromLudlow/status/656238508130996225

Apparently they don’t know, or care, that most of those who’ve even noticed the “boycott” are laughing at them —  noting how fragile their “whiteness” must be if the very thought of a black guy playing a stormtrooper causes them to screech about “white genocide?’

As one of the mockers put it:

https://twitter.com/ashleylynch/status/656207477394964481

But the boycotters aren’t the only opportunists here.

Everyone’s favorite internet garbage “journalist” Chuck C. Johnson has also jumped onto the Star Wars boycott in an attempt, presumably, to capture some of its notoriety (and traffic-driving potential) for himself. In a post on his garbage site, Johnson offers a tortuous explanation for his alleged outrage over the muticultural cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

“[T]here’s a disturbance in the force,” he writes, because he’s the kind of hack who thinks a reference to “a disturbance in the force” in a post about Star Wars is clever.

[A] group of white nerds are rightly upset that Star Wars is painting white people as the enemy.

Is the very white Star Wars being culturally appropriated by the Jewish J. J. Abrams? …

Star Trek is a productive of a white America whether or not we want to accept it. The action figures that made George Lucas a billionaire were purchased by suburban white families.

By “productive” he apparently means “a product of.”

It was white and Jewish-American nerds that put us into space and yet it’s Guatemalan-born (Oscar Isaac), Mexico-born Kenyan (Lupita Nyong’o), and the British-born white girl (Daisy Ridley) and the British-born Nigerian (John Boyega) who get to fight for the Rebel Alliance.

None of these countries even have a space program.

Wait, what?

I’m pretty sure muppets don’t have a space program either, but they’ve played a rather important role in the Star Wars saga.

Space belongs to the people smart enough to invent rockets and indoor plumbing. It belongs to a frontier people, thank you very much. And now the frontier is flooded with the Third World, drowning out the ambitions of those white nerds. … young white boys (yes, they’re boys) … won’t be much interested in a version of the future where they are cast as the villain.

On a small planet named “Earth” in the Milky Way galaxy, James Earl Jones looks upon Twitter and laughs.

It sounds like this:

“…a version of the future…”

Clearly he’s one of those annoying people who always get into the cinema just after the film starts and climbs over everyone to get to his seat, or he would have seen this:

‘A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…’

This is another bafflingly poorly constructed article on GotNews. A few of the key issues with this aside from the not at all veiled racism:

– Standard typos (“Star Trek is a productive of a white America”?)

– Endless enthymemes Vol. 1! It is utterly unclear as to why the presence of space programmes in the actor’s home countries has any impact on their suitability for a film that is set a long time ago in a place far, far away. Also, and this isn’t a small point, Britain and Mexico do have space programmes.

– Endless enthymemes Vol. 2! “Space belongs to the people smart enough to invent rockets and indoor plumbing”. There is no stated reason why this questionable statement has anything to do with a piece of science fantasy fiction. I genuinely can’t even identify an unstated premise to that argument.

– Endless enthymemes Vol. 3! Absolutely no analysis put into why the American citizenship of the principle actors from the original trilogy helped those films, nor is there any argument actually extended as to why the relative lack of American principle actors in the prequel trilogy hurt those films’ quality.

– – Endless enthymemes Vol. 4! “The action figures that made George Lucas a billionaire were purchased by suburban white families.” Again, this has no bearing on the quality of the original films, the prequels or the new trilogy.

We’ve gotten #whitegenocide into numerous mainstream publications today. People who never heard of it are now hearing it for the first time.

Yes, and everyone who’s heard it thinks you guys are idiots and giant manbabies. And also, Nazis. But I repeat myself.

I see some guys have sand in their ass sarlacc. Welp, if this means people can watch this movie without bigots in the crowd, so much merrier.

That said, I saw someone tweeting a note that 4chan is claiming this “boycott” as their CLEVER CLEVER MOVE OMG CAN’T BELIEVE PEOPLE FELL FOR IT LULZ.

I know that Chuckie Johnson probably thinks that collaboration is weak and unmanly, but the UK is the 4th-largest country contributer to the European Space Agency (plus the contributions that are made as an EU member state). So we do have a space programme, we just don’t choose to go it alone.

(Incidentally, neither do NASA. Of the 4 instruments that are being built for the JWST, only one of them is a USA-only project. The others are USA/UK, Canadian and USA/ESA.)

Mr. Johnson should decide whether he’s talking about Star Wars or Star Trek. He’d be more convincing if he could tell the two apart.

Did Johnson actually screw up and call it “Star Trek,” or was that a typo on David’s part?

Because if it’s the former (and it probably is), that is both hilarious and pathetic.

Of course we Brits don’t have a space programme. As Al Murray succinctly put it: “Why would they very people who invented gravity want to somewhere where there in’t none?”

[I know in real life we both do have a space programme and it was the British Blue Streak team that actually made Apollo work]

I’m truly floored by how absurd this is. Oh, and that columnist should be informed (though not by me, I’d not want to even come into email or Twitter contact with that virulent a slime) that when speaking of things Star Wars:

1: The “Force” is always capitalized.

2: The events in Star Wars happened a long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away. Thus, the good folks of the Republic, the Empire and the Rebellion are predecessors to modern humanity, if there’s any connection at all, not descendants. I’m pretty sure Mr. Johnson is a direct-line descendant from that little thing that hopped around Jabba the Hutt, for instance.

Gaebolga, Chuck did indeed confuse Star Trek and Star Wars in that graf. David did not make a typo. Also, Chuck calls Star Trek fascistic, so he might be confusing it with Starship Troopers.

Or he was drunk when he wrote that post. Your call.

Wait, does Upchuck C Johnson think that indoor plumbing and rockets were invented by Americans? Because, uh… The first rockets were invented in China and the first known indoor plumbing system was invented in the Indus valley.

White supremacists think white people are superior geniuses who invented everything, but they can’t even read a wikipedia article.

They have all missed thpointof theorizing like Star Wars, which were pro diversity. Scrappy rebels led by a kick ass woman and believing in the force of all life around you fighting the empire, led by Brits, and ultra conforming white suited soldiers? Hello? And, as those more astute than I have already noted Lando Calrissian.

I’d kinda become numb to the constant marketing of Stars Wars crap and wasn’t going to see this… But now I might go out of spite…and for the popcorn.

Fake Geek Boys indeed. The racist idea that only white people will ever make it to space in the real world aside (already proven untrue by, you know, actual astronauts of color in space right now, as we speak), does Chuck think that Star Wars is meant to take place in our future, and that the humans depicted in it are descendants of Earthlings? The fist goddamn thing on the screen in any Star Wars movie is the classic “a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.” None of these people are from or have ever been to Earth! Earth ideas of race shouldn’t even apply to them! There’s always been a theme of prejudice of humans against aliens in Star Wars, it’s very likely the humans in Star Wars don’t even have a concept of race the same way we do. Why would they? Humans in Star Wars come from a myriad of different planets, each, one assumes, with their own range of skin colors and physical traits.

And the idea that white boys (because children of color and girls have never been into Star Wars, right?) won’t like or will even NOTICE that the heroes of the movie aren’t the same color as them… well, someone has no idea what the actual fandom is like, do they? Lando and Mace have ALWAYS been fan favorites. And why not? They’re badass heroes. Unless a child has been getting pumped by racist nonsense from racist parents, I predict plenty of boys AND girls will be asking for action figures of John Boyega’s character this Christmas.

Yeah, and Mexico, Britain, and Guatemala never invented any lightsabers, either! Would you believe that there is not a single REAL lightsaber in any of those countries? Only lily white, male, GENUINE Americans should be in Star Wars, because they’re the only ones that have made lightsabers!

…hold on, I’m receiving news that lightsabers and star wars in general are, in fact, fictional, and do not require real world qualifications. And that white people are not in fact native to America.

Well fuck.

AnAndrejaPejicBlog (@A_Pejic_Blog)

One of them even complained about a British-born white actor. Because there have never been white Brits in a Star Wars film before.

Also, where the fuck did the “jews are orchestrating the plan for black men to steal our property white women!” even come from? Assuming that Jewish people indeed do want to destroy the white race, (which they don’t), why would they get a middleman like black people involved? Wouldn’t it be easier, and make more sense, to steal the white women themselves, and produce more Jewish folks (let’s ignore the matrilineal view taken by some branches of Judaism, I’m sure the neonazis do), than it would be to swap out the members of one outsider race for members of another (because there are never black or white Jewish people, obviously)?

See, teh Jooz are enacting the scriptures of the Frankfurt school, trying to annihilate western civilization (or something), so when we talk about how interracial marriage is okay, or how diversity makes us stronger, what we’re actually saying is “DESTROY WHITE PEOPLE”, because we’ve been duped by, again, teh Jooz.

I always think it’s hilarious that these shmucks think that when a white person and a black person have a baby, somehow there’s no whiteness left. Like, dudes, you’re not paint. Learn to fucking biology.

Binjabreel: And their fears, much like MRAs and masculinity, paint such a fragile, delicate view of ‘whiteness’ that one must wonder if it isn’t time to let Darwinism take its course, after all. Clearly, if a single mating with someone who is not white forever destroys their purity and that of their line, then whiteness is unfit and will be selected out no matter what schemes they come up with.

Yes, that is the idea. The plane ticket is for white people to get out South Africa now that Apartheid is over, so you can see that the “defenses” are things for white people to use against the “threats.”

Wookies, fish-headed creatures, cantina aliens, and Jar-Jar Binks are all fine, but black people are just TOO WEIRD. They don’t belong in outer space.

If there is extraterrestrial life out there with the technology to roam the stars, I’m sure they’d be laughing their (excretory organ equivalents) off at the idea that all of the cosmos is the exclusive province of pale-hued members of a species that’s managed to get barely a dozen representatives onto its own moon.
