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:

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.”

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:

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:

These dorks woild still go see ot cause it’s Star Wars. Fortunately if the movie’s good we all get to not have these people ruin our good time.

“…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.

[Emphasis mine.]

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.

Mmmmmmm-MMMMMM.

And let’s not forget all those other COMPLETELY ALIEN AND UNEARTHLY RACES, some of which are not even human! Have these bozos even seen Chewie? Or the Jawas? Or all those funky critters from the cantina?

Honestly, a desert island’s too good for these morons. (I will give them some reluctant props for at least spelling “homogeneous” correctly, though.)

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]

Because it’s not as if most of IRL Space Exploration doesn’t already belong to white nerds?? FFS.

There is just too much obtuseness in this whole post for me to handle. Now excuse me while the paramedics and I try to find a crowbar with which to extract my face from my palms.

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.

Did he seriously mix up Star Wars with Star Trek in one of the quotes? O.o

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.

What even is that “Chimpout Advisory Guide” chart? I’m fixated trying to interpret it. Is a rifle the ‘defense needed’ by white people against the threat of flash mobs or is that how racists think black people think?

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.

Actually, the so-called “Third World” has always had ambitions. And inventors. And so forth. Here’s a bit of “Third World” ambition out of South Africa:

This is the Mad Max boycott all over again. Then after the movie comes out and is (hopefully) awesome, they’ll deny everything they said.
