Alt-Rightists are boycotting Star Wars Rogue One for its alleged “Anti-White Social Engineering”

Wait, they’re not all white guys!

The 4th quarter 2016 We’ve Got a Bigger Problem Now WHTM pledge drive continues! If you like the blog, please donate what you can! THANKS! 

Apparently forgetting the humiliating failure of their cuck-centric boycott of Star Wars: The Force Awakens — the film ultimately made roughly six squadrillion dollars at the box office –some of the internet’s most excitable racists are calling on all white people to skip out on the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story because something something Jew female white genocide.

“All Whites need to boycott Star Wars: Rogue One and (((Disney))) propaganda,” declares one irate racist Redditor in the AltRight subreddit.

J Jew Abrams and the Menorah Mafia need to be taught a lesson at the box office. DON’T SPEND YOUR MONEY!

The second J in JJ Abrams’ name does not actually stand for “Jew.” He’s also not the writer, director, or even a producer of Rogue One. But never mind. The whiteboy-cott is ON!

The Neo-Nazi blog Infostormer was, as far as I can figure it, the first alt-right organ to call for a Rogue One boycott. In a post back in August, the site denounced the film as

nothing but a Jew masturbation fantasy of anti-White hate. Nearly all of the major characters are non-Whites and the main character is an empowered White female.

As the film’s opening draws ever closer, the calls for a boycott have increased. Alt-right Redditors have denounced the film as “Anti-White Social Engineering,” and “[y]et more proof that the dominant cultural force in modern White Western civilization revolves around tearing down White men.”

“Jew wars is the most overhyped franchise in existence,” complains another Redditor.

Now the Daily Stormer — not to be confused with similarly named, and similarly hateful, Infostormer — has gotten on board the boycott, charging that “the Star Wars brand has been destroyed and subverted by money grubbing Jews” and joking that “Chewbacca is more of a human than that retarded Negro stormtrooper” — that is, John Boyega’s Finn from The Force Awakens.

The boycott now has its own fairly active Twitter hashtag — #DumpStarWars — though most of the Tweets using it at the moment come from people who think the boycott is the dumbest thing in the world since the last Trump cabinet pick.

But there are some “serious” #DumpStarWars-ers as well, including reactionary YouTube pundit Mark Dice, Internet embarrassment Mike Cernovich, and antifeminist YouTube cultist Stefan Molyneux. They’ve added more charges to the alt-right indictment against Star Wars, including excessive feminism, anti-Trumpism on the part of several Star Wars screenwriters, and promotion of Teh Ghey.

Er, dude, did you not notice that the evil empire in the original trilogy was basically a bunch of space Nazis?

Ironically, the folks at Return of Kings — who spearheaded the pointless boycott of The Force Awakens — have not explicitly called for a Rogue One boycott yet. But the site has posted two lengthy attacks on the film.

Blogger Aaron Clarey, the self-described “economist of the mano/androsphere” and a regular contributor to RoK, is annoyed that the film looks like it will be a “SJW sermon against white males” with a cast having “more colors than a rainbow,” but he stops short of using the “b” word.

David G. Brown, in a RoK post way back in April, offers a slightly more pointed take on Rogue One, which he sees as a yet another confirmation of “Disney’s hatred for white males.” Like the more explicit racists at Infostormer and The Daily Stormer, Brown is annoyed to find so many people of color in the film’s rebel army.

But he’s even more angry that the main character is not a dude. In the real world, he insists,

women meticulously avoid trying to put themselves in harm’s way to save other people, especially men. …

Unless someone is brainwashed by the pernicious modern “culture,” no one can rationally relate to a [fictional] world where women equally shoulder the burden of self-endangerment, let alone take the lead in it, for some good cause.

The Star Wars franchise’s owner Disney is unquestionably championing women as something they are not amidst the cold, hard truths of real life. …

All in all, Rogue One is just another example of women doing things in films they never bother to do in real life.

How dare a film series featuring a mysterious “Force” that allows people to swordfight blindfolded and move physical objects with their mind feature something as totally unrealistic as a woman fighting in a war?

I’m sure most Star Wars fans will be happy not to have to sit next to any of these idiots in the theaters.

Films with a female protagonist: feminist propaganda. Seriously, that’s all it takes.

I remember someone on IMDb (which is a complete hive of scum and villainy, so no surprise there) complaining about how the protagonist of Rogue One was going to be “another Mary-Sue female” back before we even knew her name, let alone anything about what she was going to do. I’ve seen people refer to female characters as “Mary-Sues” for being even remotely competent, but that was the first time I’d seen the term broadened to “woman who does something, period”.

(Relatedly, speaking as a feminist, am I the only one wanting the film to be about the cast as an ensemble, not just about Jyn Erso as the heroine? Of course, that’s far too subtle for the alt-righters to understand.)

Also, LO fucking L at that tweeter throwing a fit over Mark Hamill neither confirming nor denying whether Luke is gay. They’re so sensitive.

Look, I know I am “historian” who went to one of those “left-communist schools” and listen to the “main-stream media” – but women have been fighting and dying for causes the entirety of the human existence. The idea that men have a monopoly on any sort of fighting makes me want to scream.

Here is an example from my home state: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mildred_Harnack

Additionally, while these kind of men think that my only role in life is to please them and birth more white babies – that is literally putting myself in harms way. Up until recently, pregnancy and child birth was incredibly dangerous and harming. It still is to many women! And just being married to a man, who at one time had total control over the women in their lives, was harmful not just bodily, but mentally.

weirwoodtreehugger: communist bonobo

1. Is Cernovich trying to imply that he’s hard working?

2. No woman or man does the things featured in Star Wars movies because it’s set in a science fiction universe. It’s not like it’s an all woman remake of a historical tale about men such as Saving Private Ryan. It’s a fantasy adventure.

3. I was disappointed with the Lost finale too but the J.J. Abrams hate is getting way out of hand. What is it with their obsession about him?

4. Piss off, Jim.

Okay, I’ll play along for a minute…

women meticulously avoid trying to put themselves in harm’s way to save other people, especially men.

Even if this were true (it isn’t), did it ever cross your mind that maybe it’s because we don’t see many self-sacrificing heroes of our gender in the media? For most people, real life honestly doesn’t afford many opportunities for this sort of heroism. Going about my daily business this week, the number of accident scenes, animal attacks, and crimes-in-progress I encountered was exactly 0. People have to get most of their information about who does the heroics from media, and if we don’t see people we identify with as heroes in fiction, we’re less likely to aspire to be heroes in real life.

Anyhoo, have fun with your boycott. It’s not going to work, but…literally, have fun with it. Take those two and a half hours you would have spent watching Star Wars and do something that brings you genuine joy. No, not angry self-satisfaction, genuine joy. Become a better person for once.

I’d go one step further, Christina: Any movie that doesn’t have a cishet, hyper masculine, white dude is an attack on cishet, hyper masculine, white dudes to these people.

Because they appear to believe that media is a finite resource. (Which is, on it’s face, absolutely ridiculous.)

Any movie that stars a non-cishet, non-masculine, non-white dude is taking away from and outright attacking them personally.

So, they parrot us yet again and try to co-opt “SJW” tactics for some veneer of legitimacy, not understanding that the reason why our boycotts get media attention or go viral (or work) is because we’re not throwing a tantrum over people getting a toy when we’ve got a toy box full of ’em.

Of course, asking them to examine those feelings and think about how women and/or PoC must feel when they get excluded from media the rest of the time would be asking for the sun to stop rising in the east.

Awright, every time I play Knights of the Old Republic, I’m going to play a woman … oh wait, I do that anyway.

Female Vault Dweller, female Chosen One, male Lone Wanderer, female Courier, female Sole Survivor …

Female Jedi Outcast, female Jedi Exile …

Too many Bhaalspawn to count, but a goodly number were women. Same goes for the Neverwinter Nights games. Also, in the SSI Gold Box games and the similar Might & Magic games, I tend to go for parties with equal mixes of genders …

Two female Dragonborn …

One female and one male Grey Warden … aaaaannnnnddddd

One boy Shepard and one girl Shepard …

so far.

Because I love the freedom to choose, and so many other games make me play a dude. I was a dude particle physicist, a dude pirate, a dude genetically-modified, gene-tailored-plague-carrying Spec Ops soldier, a dude child soldier who replaced same in the sequel, a dude Black Ops agent, a dude incarnation of the Triforce of Courage … agh.

So I am going to go and watch a chick kick the Empire’s ass, steal the plans to their secret weapon, and hopefully live to fight another day. Because there’s no right way to imagine.

They turned on the franchise at the exact moment that Finn took off his helmet, and the sight of a black stormtrooper ruined some fantasy the rest of us didn’t even know they had.

I got into one fascinating argument with a dude who insisted all the stormtroopers were white because clones, which a. they aren’t all clones indefinitely, and b. the actor playing Jango Fett isn’t white, so how they imagined all his clones would be suggests they didn’t get a whole lot of biology in school.

Two female Dragonborn …

I think all of my TES MCs have been female with only one or two dudes in there.

However, my latest Dragonborn is a fat (as fat as they’d let me make her), scarred lady Orc with a lovely Orc wife.

So, not only is she fat and “ugly”, she’s also a lesbian. She’s also a master blacksmith, and runs both the Dark Brotherhood and Thieves’ Guild.

Oh, and she’s working on plying her skills as a mage. So she can “science” in the Tamriel sense.

…I wanna go play Skyrim now. I also installed a museum mod on my PC version and it comes with a huge questline and I’m trying to fill the place up and holy shit I have so much adulting to do I can’t just drop everything for Skyrim but I want to so badly now

When it comes to media, I can’t empathize nearly as well with male characters. Just can’t. I guess my misandry runs deep :p

Ain’t it interesting how Roy Fokker says that Darth Vader was a “father figure” though? So telling! Darth is the biological father to Luke and Leia, but isn’t actually their father figure. Luke’s father figure is his uncle (and, at least in a literary sense, Obi Wan). Leia’s father figure is the King of Alderaan.

If Vader is the “father figure” of the movie, it means that father figures are supposed to be distant, threatening, manipulative, abusive, and demanding complete obedience. Vader only approaches being an actual father figure at the very end, salvaging some small scrap of love for his children as he realizes what a monster he’s become. He dies so that he can have a moment as a real father, and in doing so he ceases to be Darth Vader entirely.

The only moment Darth Vader is an actual ‘father figure’ is the moment when he rejects the evil of the Empire entirely! When he shows compassion and love! So, yeah, Alt-Right dood, when the guy is saying that the Empire is a white supremascist fascist state, and you reply by saying how unfair it is to paint Vader as evil, you’re sorta own-goaling there. (Not to mention, completely misunderstanding the movies)

I’m not actually a huge Star Wars fan at all, and even I know this stuff. Why don’t you, Mr they’re-stealing-our-media?

Oh, and Jim, you pretty clearly have no idea how much work goes into journalism or nonfiction writing. For every word posted there’s, like, ten written, and a hundred read. And 500mL of caffeine, usually. David is a research bulldozer for the volume of work he writes. One a day is incredible.

By reference, Stephen King has said that you can write a book in a few months if you put in a half hour of writing a day. He doesn’t mention the hours of research, experimentation, design and examination that goes on outside of that half hour.

Please the only reason studios make movies is to make money. The only reason these films have female leads is they’v realized women have money to spend to & don’t just want rom coms and as a bonus a lot of men (ie the secure ones) go & see them too so the studio makes more money.

Having spoken to someone who works way down the totem pole in the merchandising side of the film industry her theory is they market to women now a days as they’ve realized that women buy more merchandising & offer more merchandising opportunities.

Look at all the clothing likes at Torrid & Hot Topic tied to films, heck everything from make up lines to underwear is being made for women tied to geeky movies & computer games now a days.

Also for the most part women decide which toys get bought for the kids, so if you want to sell your themed lego sets & mini figs you better have a good range of characters now a days if you want to sell them.

As an anecdotal side note too, most of my male friends don’t pay to go see movies anyway they download the pirated versions. Why would movie studios make films for people that aren’t willing to pay for them.

I dug the film reels out of the back room
And threw ’em on the silver screen
But there was something wrong in the movie theater
Wasn’t a soul to be seen

Stepped out of the booth and into the lobby
Darndest thing I ever saw
Buncha white men makin’ quite a din
Rantin’ ’bout some old and ornery law

Now, it may not have been the best place for sellin’ tickets
To films with such a sight to see
But the bystanders were munchin’ away on their popcorn
And that’s not complimentary

So the rest of the films of the day were marked out
And everyone gathered ’round
With their Cokes and their candy boxes, nachos and popcorn
To see the biggest dimwits in the town

Well, they kept on rantin’ and hootin’ and hollerin’
For the better part of that Sunday
And the passerby threw out a line every now and then
To rile them up, ’twas just a game to play

Eventually the dolts of the day got to their point
Somethin’ about the color of skin
Sayin’ somethin’ about the quality of a person
[spoken] And I tried to say something about it just being melanin.

Needless to say, they started goin’ after my jug’lar
Somethin’ about a cabal of “S-juice”
And I told the head [spoken] “Sweetheart, I get you’re trying to make a point”
[belted]”But I don’t quite get your methods of verbal abuse!”

I sure didn’t then, and I still don’t now, but I can say they each deserve
A golden star emblazoned with “you tried”
They went on and on with stranger terms that I still couldn’t translate
And my manager looked like he would rather die

Eventually, she called the cops to herd them out of the joint
But they said that “it’s all just in good fun”
So I offered to do the job myself, but she was quite a skeptic
And I just told her “don’t you worry, hun”

Within the next ten minutes I’d entered the crowd, and things were surely gettin’ loud
But airhorns tend to serve that purpose well
I danced between the rantin’ folks, and all the while I’m screamin’
Like a feral cat comin’ straight outta the bowels of Hell

Well, not two minutes later, the men decided that it wasn’t worth bein’ deafened
By this plump lil’ gal tearin’ them up, up, up, up
So they stormed out grumblin’ through the gates of the ol’ theater
Leavin’ nothing but the wrapper to two peanut butter cups

So I cleaned right up and tossed that in the bin, and I think it would be a sin
Not to mention that passerby were gapin’ at me
So I gave a wave, said “I’m okay, just took care of this in my own way”
“Sometimes you have to believe what ya see!”

Women who have deliberately stayed out of danger have generally done so on order to care for others. And of course, women who have deliberately tried to go into dangerous situations in order to help, have often been prevented from doing so. Ms. Tubman and Ms. Barton, among many others, defied convention and the law.

Or as in the link I posted yesterday, Irena Sendler who saved thousands of children. And who was caught by the nazis, beaten so badly that her ankles and feet were broken (but still didn’t inform on anyone who helped her), was sentenced to death, managed to escape and then went RIGHT BACK TO SAVING KIDS. Although those kids probably don’t count to the alt right as they’re Jewish.

@NicolaLuna, Falconer’s got it, but the word’s got some history to it at this point. “Virtue Signalling” is a real thing, discussed in political science and social psychology. It’s when people advocate good things in order to gain social standing, not to actually do good things – the foundation example is a person who advocates recycling, but isn’t actually doing any recycling themselves. It’s a real phenomenon that can crop up all over the place.

MRA’s latched onto the concept, likely because it was tied it to “soccer moms” and “helicopter parenting” and “keepin’ up with the Joneses”. They started using it a couple of years ago as a synonym for “white knight,” probably because they thought it made them sound smarter. They figure that Social Justice Warriors aren’t actually interested in social justice at all, that we just want to feel and be perceived as superior for caring about something that we don’t actually care about.

So yeah, it’s just the old standard “you’re just doing it for attention, you don’t actually care about anyone but yourself” that was the original definition of SJW. (I stand by my belief that “SJW” now means “normal moderate beliefs”)

H. Bomberguy did a great video on it a few months ago, it’s pretty fun:
