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.”

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:

People who use the term “White genocide” piss me off more than I can even put into words.
It’s like, do you even fucking know what genocide means?! Do you actually understand why it’s a bad thing? Words fucking MEAN things.
A loving couple who create a mixed race baby does not equal a massacre of men, women and children. I can’t even fathom the stupidity and bigotry of a person who believes that the two things are comparable. Aarrgghhh

Dude, Chuck, why do you insist on using “-born” to denote someone’s origin? The rules are pretty simple: you stick a person’s birth nationality or ethnic origin right in front of the nationality they legally possess.

Here, let’s try it together. Oscar Isaac is a Guatemalan-American. See how easy that was? Let’s try it again. Lupita Nyong’o is aMexican-Kenyan. Very good, you’re getting the hang of it.

I could be mistaken, but I’ve always thought that the “-born” suffix was useful because it provided greater specificity; birthplace is not the same thing as ancestry.

I am a Mexican-American, as is my mother, but neither of us are Mexican-born Americans. My grandmother is.

@NicolaLuna:

While “white genocide” is by far the most ridiculous racist term out there, I have a problem with attaching qualifiers to the word “genocide” in general. There is only one kind of genocide. It involves wholesale physical extermination or decimation of a group of people based on inborn characteristics such as race, ethnicity or regional origin. It’s called “genocide”.

Yep! It’s great and I’m super glad John Boyega is going on to bigger things. Highly recommended viewing to get you stoked for Star Wars.

Maybe we can convince them to go colonize the moon or mercury and something, and form the “perfect” (read “entirely formed by racists”) society they want so much? I’d donate money for it!

They already tried something like that, without, alas, leaving the planet. It went about as well as you can expect.

They absolutely CANNOT have the moon! Haven’t y’all read The Moon is a Harsh Mistress? Heinlein’s absurd sexism aside (a female character is almost literally described as sexy and wearing a hat), a bunch of morons on the moon with a catapult could do an absurd amount of damage to Earth.

Re:white genocide

Today I saw a poster proclaiming that Italian-Americans are more negatively stereotyped than any other ethnicity and portraying them as professional criminals is “cultural genocide”

Yuckies gonna yuck

You’re absolutely right, and there’s nothing wrong with using ‘-born’ in and of itself. I just find it annoying how Chuck’s trying to use ‘-born’ as a way to diminish these actors’ nationalities. Oscar Isaac is an American regardless of where he was born, and John Boyega isn’t magically a Nigerian citizen just because his parents are from there.

I found him, and he updated his blog today. I’ll message him and see what he knows.

Not to defend white supremacists, but the definition of genocide CAN include having mixed ethnicity babies. Just… usually from systemic militarized rape to intentionally displace an ethnic minority. The Milosevic campaign of terror included some of this.

These bozos have decided that their invented stereotypes of all black men being rapists mean that the existence of black men in white populations is thus genocide.

It’s fucking stupid, but there’s a twisted logic there.

I say they should go colonize someplace so far away that it’ll be a one way trip. Don’t want them to come back in a few decades or something with a invasion force to retake earth from us inferior beings .

Reply to  Fabe

Also, re: the bizarre “Jewish people are promoting interracial relationships” conspiracy theory:

The idea is that Jewish people convince people of other ethnicities that interracial relationships are desirable but themselves continue to only marry other Jewish people. As a result, other ethnicities die out because apparently mixed-race people are somehow inherently defective and only Jewish people are left.

It doesn’t really make any more sense presented that way but that’s at least the underlying fear in the context of “white genocide” foaming.

Thanks maistrechat! I suppose that does make more sense if you accept the (incredibly faulty) premise that mixed race people are somehow inferior/doomed.

George Takei and Nichelle Nichols would like to have a word with you…

Add to that Levar Burton, Micheal Dorn, Avery Brooks, Cirroc Lofton, Tim Russ, Linda Park, Anthony Montgomery, and probably a few others I’ve forgotten.

SPEAKING of Michael Dorn…he slammed GamerGate a while back.

Lookit! Feminists and Feminist Allies “invading” your precious sci-fi!

To be completely honest though, I’m not a big sci-fi fan. I much prefer fantasy and magic to yer fancy hyper-drives and whatnot, but this still makes me laugh, considering that even I know the difference between Star Trek and Star Wars. (One of them had Capitan John Luc Picard in it.)

Though, I will put my Fantasy-Bias aside for a moment to say: I did find myself enjoying some of The Next Generation and Voyager, and even some of Deep Space Nine, thanks to my Trekkie cousin. The science bits fly completely over my head here and there, but overall it’s a fun watch. Not one I’d commit to, but fun.

I’ve never heard of “The Moon is a Harsh Mistress” buuuut I can see this going wrong, now that you mention it. Mercury then? Maybe Jupiter? Or should we send them out of the Solar System?

@Amused
You’d think they’d be able to form a society of their own if they are inherently awesome (because they’re white)
I’m glad it didn’t work, too. Too close for comfort.
