Lucasfilm Orchestrated Racist Harassment Of KMT To Malign And Purge Older Fans

“I fucking hate Star Wars fans with a passion.”

~Jason Ward, MakingStarWars.net, 11-24-2014

December 15th, 2018 is the one year anniversary of the release of The Last Jedi in theaters.  That’s a great time to go over some information that may demonstrate how Lucasfilm is responsible for the staged racist harassment of Kelly Marie Tran which led to the infamous Instagram Incident, in an effort to malign and purge older fans from the fan base.  I believe that the motive may be demonstrated as well, and that Bryan Young, Jason Ward, Steele Saunders, and others in the Wack Pack may have been hired by Lucasfilm, specifically to conduct malicious activity against the older portion of the fan base.

This is going to be a very long post.  The longest post I’ve made here to date.  So either grab some tea and crumpets and get ready to relax for a while.  Or, if you want to skip through the nitty-gritty, you can jump down to the numbered recaps and get a general sense of what I’m demonstrating in each section.

For ease of communication, I will sometimes refer to the Bryan Young/Steele Wars/Jason Ward/etc. machine as the Wack Pack.

Also be advised, that all information contained in this blog post was secured either from public information that is available to anyone, or from anonymous sources.

This blog post has been archived here.


POINT OF ORDER

Here’s how this blog post will be organized:

Section 1:  THE KELLY MARIE TRAN INSTAGRAM INCIDENT – I’ll briefly review what we know about the Kelly Marie Tran Instagram Incident as of this writing, in order to give a foundational understanding of what this is all about to the uninitiated.  Then we’ll start to look at various pieces of evidence.

Section 2:  JASON WARD CAUSES HAVOC AT THE CANTINA FORUMS AND THE FORCE.NET – I’ll review information that demonstrates a consistent history of abuse and harassment of the original older fanbase, and Pro-Legends EU activists.  I’ll then review incidents with the Cantina Forums at Star Wars News Network, and with the forums at theForce.net by the Wack Pack.

Section 3:  DOXXING AND FALSE INSIDER LEAKS  I’ll discuss evidence that demonstrates how Jason Ward and his associates posed as Lucasfilm insiders and then leaked false spoiler information to rival websites in an effort to discredit them publicly,  and how they contacted the workplace of their rivals.

Section 4:  ATTACKS ON REBEL FORCE RADIO – I’ll look at how the Wack Pack organized SJW attacks on RFR leading to their replacement at Star Wars Celebration.

The sections up to this point will serve to establish a history of malicious anti-fan behavior.

Section 5:  DOWN WITH DISNEY – I’ll review the Down With Disney hate hoax account, and how it relates directly to Jason Ward and his associates.

Section 6:  WOOKIEEPEDIA EDIT –  I will review the Wookiepedia edit of Kelly Marie Tran’s entry there, and discuss the possible identity of the editor.

Section 7:  CONNECTIONS – I will review possible connections between the Wack Pack and Lucasfilm, and the potential motive of the culprit(s).

Section 8: THEORIES AND SUSPICIONS – I will put forth theories and suspicions in light of what we’ve discovered so far.


1.  THE KELLY MARIE TRAN INSTAGRAM INCIDENT

Yes, Rian.  Really.

Since the Kelly Marie Tran Instagram Incident is the crux of this issue, let’s go ahead and briefly recap what we know about the Kelly Marie Tran Instagram Incident as of this writing, an incident which happened approximately two days after Rebel Force Radio appealed to Lucasfilm to control the psychotic public rants of unhinged crank Chuck Wendig with Disney’s social media policies.

We know that the evidence for the purported racist and sexist harassment of Kelly Marie Tran is nearly non-existent.  What little evidence there is floating around on Twitter, we’ve been able to dismiss as either Photoshopped fakes or coming from the accounts of SJW hate hoaxers.  In fact, some have suggested that Russian Bots were responsible for the online harassment, and someone actually wrote an article suggesting just that.

The entire Kelly Marie Tran Instagram narrative hinges on the opinion expressed in a single tweet from the unverified user Star Wars Facts.  The sentiments expressed in that single tweet were repeated over and over again in stories published by the legacy media and in social media posts made by SJW activists.

You can read my own theory about what happened on the Kelly Marie Tran side of the Instagram Incident here.  This blog post however, will deal only with the fan side of the Instagram Incident.

So who is responsible for the harassment against Kelly Marie Tran taking place?  Early evidence suggests the Wack Pack may be the culprit(s), and we also may be able to determine a possible motive.

First, let’s go over some histories in order to establish a pattern of aggressive misbehavior perpetrated by this group.


2. JASON WARD CAUSES HAVOC AT THE CANTINA FORUMS AND THE FORCE.NET

When searching through Reddit, I came across this thread, which indicated that Mr. Ward was accused of engaging in sock puppet activity at The Cantina at Star Wars News Net (SWNN) around February of 2015, before “rage quitting” the forum, where he apparently had multiple banned accounts.

WardBanned

Additionally, according to a thread at milleniumfalcon.com, Jason Ward was also banned at TheForce.net forums for disruptive behavior:

TheForce.net

So we know that Ward and his associates engaged in malicious behavior against the fans within online fan forums.


3. DOXXING AND FALSE INSIDER LEAKS

A thread at the milleniumfalcon.com forums from April 2015, shows information taken from The Comlink, a sub-forum from MakingStarWars.net.  Apparently milleniumfalcom.com had some informant or mole that gave them this information, and as a result, they put together a dossier which can be read by anyone as of this writing.  The dossier details Mr. Ward’s history of engaging in doxxing activities earlier in March 2015.  In particular, the contacting of workplaces of individuals that he had online conflicts with.  The thread has been archived here, and it’s definitely worth a read.  There is more information there than I’ll be able to post here, so you’ll have to click on the thumbnails at milleniumfalcon.com to see these posts in full size and in their full context.

Ward1

There is also discussion there of efforts by Ward and his associates to pose as Lucasfilm insiders, and feed false spoilers from Star Wars productions to rival websites including Star Wars News Net, in an effort to discredit them publicly.

Ward2

According to the information at milleniumfalcon.com, it appears that Jason Ward had rival competition such as Rebel Force Radio in his sights since at least 2015, and was waiting for an opportune moment to strike. For Ward, it was about “entrenchment.”

Ward3


RECAP  OF SECTIONS 2, AND 3

Ward caused havoc in The Cantina fan forums, and was banned at TheForce.net forums for disruptive behavior there.

Jason Ward and his associates were involved in contacting the employers of rivals, and also in feeding false insider leaks to rival websites in an effort to discredit them, including Star Wars News Net.


SECTION 4:  ATTACKS ON REBEL FORCE RADIO

Two Twitter users indicated that Mr. Ward engaged in creating rifts within the fanbase during a conflict with Rebel Force Radio.

Indeed, an article was found from January of 2018 that explained some of these events:

The Social Justice Warrior Attack on Rebel force radio continues. Hey I thought Star Wars Fandom was United?

Let me Begin on where this all Started. in 2016 During the release of Star Wars Rogue one, There was a Press Junket where a Journalist asked about Females Directing Star Wars, and the Journalist Harassed Kathy Kennedy about it. Well Rebel Force Radio addressed this and People Like Jason Ward from Making Star Wars attacked Rebel Force Radio over it. RFR appologized. But Ward and his Social Justice Warrior Buddies are still Scrutinizing Rebel Force Radio. Jason Ward Also attacked Star Wars News Net saying they are a Hype Machine. Well The Star Wars Social Justice Warriors are at it again.

Before I go on let me Just say this. If you did not like The Last Jedi Because New Character Rose, or Wrote Derogatory terms about her on Wookiepedia because she is asian you are part of this Problem. I will even say if I read a racist, sexist comment on Star Wars fan sites I will let you have it. Now for the Controversy. one Star Wars fan mentioned about the Racist, Sexist Comments about the last Jedi. Well Jimmy Mac not Thinking about what he Wrote. Said Reports of Racism and Sexism against the last Jedi was a Scam. Jimmy realized the Mistake he made Apologized and Removed the post. But the Damage was Done. Jason Ward and Social Justice Star Wars fan’s piled on attacking Rebel force Radio on Twitter. and here are the posts.

Star Wars fandom is now becoming like the GamerGate Situation. Jason Ward Has Become the Anita Sarkeesian of Star Wars, and if you Believe that Rebel Force Radio and its fans are not Prejudice. I say do what I did and Boycott makingstarwars.net! because Jason Ward is trying to do this Crap to Promote his Site and Podcast, just like Anita did with Gamergate. Until fandom unites again I think we shold hold off on Star Wars Celebration Expo’s. also Jason Ward attacked Star Wars News Net over there Hype just to prove he is in it for himself.

So Jason Ward was scrutinizing Rebel Force Radio.  But why?

According to anonymous sources, I’ve been told that Rebel Force Radio was hired by Lucasfilm to work a Behind The Scenes stage at Star Wars Celebration 2015 a year and a half in advance.  As the event drew near, there was an increasing lack of communication between Rebel Force Radio and Lucasfilm.  At the event itself, they were left completely alone with no room producer.  Only a handful of volunteers helped.

Afterwards, I’m told that there was a weirdness in Lucasfilm’s relationship with Rebel Force Radio.  RFR was not invited to The Force Awakens press junkets, despite being told by Lucasfilm that they would be.  When Rebel Force Radio attempted to push back against Lucasfilm PR in regards to this, RFR received cold responses.

Then about 3 months later in 2016, before a meeting at the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) with Mary Franklin about RFR’s role at Celebration, Rebel Force Radio was told directly to their faces that they weren’t wanted for next year’s Celebration by DJ Elliot Hansen of ReedPop.  That they wanted a girl instead.  As a result, they hired Amy Ratcliffe (author of Women of the Galaxy) to replace them.  Rebel Force Radio wasn’t told this until after the announcement was made.  Later, Amy Ratcliffe would be interviewed by the Antifa supporting Space Jess, a star on the podcast show Rebel Grrrl which is in the MakingStarWars.net podcast network.

As previously mentioned, Rebel Force Radio admonished Chuck Wendig for his psychotic behavior on the very public platform of Twitter, and for other Lucasfilm representatives antagonizing the fanbase such as with Andi Gutierrez’s silly Fanboy Tears mugThere had also been additional problems with a variety of Lucasfilm representatives.

In 2017 SJWs were organized by Jason Ward, Bryan Young, Steele Wars, and Brian Larsen (The Wack Pack) in an email writing campaign that targeted to two email accounts.  One was publicity@lucasfilm.com which apparently is looked at by corporate people inside of Lucasfilm, and the other was mary@reedpop.com.  The latter is an email for Mary Franklin formerly of Lucasfilm, who now works for ReedPOP, a convention organizing outfit.  SJWs were encouraged to use the following form letter written by Brian Larsen:

SJWFormLetter

I have been told that the claims in the above form letter are 100% false.

Anonymous sources tell me that this email campaign damaged an amicable relationship that Rebel Force Radio had with Lucasfilm for 10 years.  Lucasfilm seemingly caved into the demands of the email campaign, with Mary Franklin publicly responding to the SJWs and endorsing and their concocted concerns.  As a result, Rebel Force Radio received threats and doxxing attempts.  Jason Ward’s wife, co-host of Rebel Grrrl Amanda Ward, threatened physical intimidation tactics should Rebel Force Radio take the stage:

http://archive.is/sDe7T

In 2018, the #ForceOutHate Twitter hashtag was created to harass and purge Rebel Force Radio from their own “entrenchment.”  Polygon amusingly explained:

Marjorie, who goes by “MargieC,” but asked to keep her full name anonymous, witnessed this behavior bubble up to the top of Star Wars fandom. In the weeks leading up to her own encounter with online abuse, she saw fans hurle death threats atThe Last Jedi director Rian Johnson. Actress Kelly Marie Tran reportedly left Instagram after dealing with trolls. Anonymous voices called for the head of a Star Wars Show host found drinking from a mug that said “fanboy tears.”

Marjorie wanted to push back with positivity, so she, her husband and their two friends in Australia started the #ForceOutHate hashtag.

Despite misleading their readers into thinking that the hashtag began in Australia, the reality is that the hashtag actually began in the United States, and here’s the evidence.

My anonymous sources tell me that Margie C is Marjorie Carvalho, of Star Wars Action News, which is based in Springfield, IL.

1

Currently, they have decided to squat on the old Rebel Force Radio Twitter handle, in order to further harass RFR.  How do we know?

2

After Rebel Force Radio called out Star Wars Action News on their Patreon, the Springfield, IL location immediately disappeared from the Twitter account.

Star Wars Action News always had a beef with Rebel Force Radio since about 2006, when RFR won a position at TheForce.net, beating out Star Wars Action News.  And who is Star Wars Action News cozy with?  Bryan Young, aka swankmotron, who writes for starwars.com and Star Wars Insider Magazine.  It’s also worth noting here, that Bryan Young was caught publicly lying in an article that attempted to malign Geeks + Gamers and Ethan Van Sciver.

Motron1


RECAP OF SECTION 4

Rebel Force Radio was given poor treatment after the sale of Lucasfilm to Disney, despite being hired to attend Celebration 2015 a year and a half in advance, and after a 10 year amicable relationship with Lucasfilm.

Rebel Force Radio was given the cold shoulder, and not invited to Lucasfilm functions.  They were replaced with Amy Ratcliffe (Women of the Galaxy) without ever being told until the announcement was made.

The Kelly Marie Tran Instagram Incident and the ensuing legacy media hysteria over it, occurred approximately two days after Rebel Force Radio called for Disney to control Chuck Wendig’s rants with their social media policies, and for other Lucasfilm representatives to stop antagonizing the fan base with “Fanboy Tears” mugs.

In 2017 SJWs organized an email campaign to have Rebel Force Radio removed from the podcast stage.

Amanda Ward made public threats of physical intimidation against Rebel force Radio should they take the stage publicly on Twitter.

Rebel Force Radio experienced doxxing attacks, and was harassed with the #ForceOutHate hashtag.  The #ForceOutHate hashtag was created by Marjorie Carvalho of Star Wars Action News, based in Springfield, IL.  Star Wars Action News had been jealous of Rebel Force Radio beating them out in an audition at TheForce.net in 2006.

Lucasfilm caved into the demands of SJWs without hearing Rebel Force Radio’s side or offering any kind of appeal.


5.  DOWN WITH DISNEY

In June of 2018, Jason Ward of MakingStarWars.net published a blog post that admonished the activities of Down With Disney.

Mr. Ward also made sure to post public heroic pleas demanding that Facebook remove the “Down With Disney” account.

http://archive.is/MjK0D

http://archive.is/ic3t9

But there were those who suggested that Jason Ward himself was responsible for operating the “Down With Disney” account, which was exposed as an obvious SJW hate hoax account.  Down With Disney also claimed responsibility for the harassment that led to the Kelly Marie Tran Instagram Incident.  The Down With Disney account was able to get mainstream media to pick up its claims as representative of critical fans, thereby smearing critical fans by associating them with Down With Disney’s overt racist statements.

When I mentioned what some were saying on Twitter, Jason Ward responded to my comments by saying:

Well, actually the notion came from another Twitter user, who had some previous experience watching Mr. Ward engaging in similar sock puppet antics:

What was interesting about the diatribe in the blog post about the Kelly Marie Tran Instagram Incident that Mr. Ward published and which I responded to, was that the image he provided showed a time stamp of “5 mins.”  Did that mean that Ward just happened to see the post 5 minutes after it was posted?  Or did it mean that Ward operated the “Down With Disney” account which seems to have begun its activity sometime around April of 2018, and then screen-grabbed it 5 minutes after he posted it himself?

5minutes

http://archive.is/ywDtc

Interestingly, Jason Ward just happened to be monitoring a thread on Twitter, in which several of us were discussing the “Down With Disney” account, its potential user, and its ultimate purpose.  Mr. Ward refers to me as “The Critter.”

The critter’s account is now is trying to push the idea that the screenshot I posted has a time stamp of 5 minutes after it was posted, which proves I took it. However, it was given to me after being posted in the Alliance Facebook Group: pic.twitter.com/mjq3JtNOtw

— Jason Ward (@MakingStarWars) June 10, 2018

It was certainly possible that a 3rd party gave Mr. Ward this image. But then, someone had to have seen this post only 5 minutes after it was posted, if the time stamp in the image hasn’t been altered.  However, Twitter users Rebel Je-Daii and RebeLibrarian claimed that no such thing was ever posted at the aforementioned Alliance group or page (The Alliance to Preserve the Expanded Universe):

That was never posted in the Alliance group or page. I dare anyone in the group to find it or to look on the page. Whoever claims it came from there LIED. Such content violates both the group rules and its goals. https://t.co/SsFQ9rVA5p pic.twitter.com/nboQpCcQoM

— Rebel Je’Daii (@SWForce4EU) June 10, 2018

http://archive.is/EuaPl

http://archive.is/J0cXa

In fact, read the title right there: that screencap did not come from within the Alliance, as you claim. It’s impossible. Only 2 pages are members of this group, and that is NOT one of them. As seen by the members list, which is publicly accessible: https://t.co/7egOraKBQ2 pic.twitter.com/O21tR2Nwzl

http://archive.is/OUMWh

http://archive.is/v4lXH

Mr. Ward then spent the next several minutes posting screengrabs of my own comments on Twitter.  It’s curious that he was monitoring my posts this thread, given that he’s had me blocked for some time now, if Jason was just a run of the mill fan.

WardBlocked

But the moment that I posted a link to the previously mentioned Reddit thread into the Twitter thread, it seemed to have struck a nerve in Ward.  He then made a plea to his followers to block me on Twitter, clearly not wanting them to read anything I might write and post.

http://archive.is/CVNUo

http://archive.is/WkVIG

When I said “hi” to Jason in the thread that I knew he was monitoring, he tweeted out a message directly to me.

http://archive.is/G6rXa

I’m pleased that he corrected “Clown to clown.”  But I have to wonder, does the bragging statement, “Mickey Mouse says ‘sup!'” mean that Jason Ward works for Disney?  Possibly, but adolescent vernacular is difficult to translate at times, and it was hardly conclusive.  More on “Mickey Mouse” in the Connections section below.

The very next day, Jason then announced that the “Down With Disney” Facebook group had been magically taken down.

http://archive.is/jGVmP

Deleting the Down With Disney account would make it more difficult for investigators to rifle through the account’s material, and glean clues as to the account’s identity.  But it’s interesting to note here, that the “Down With Disney” account attempted to associate itself with the Legends movement in an effort to malign it by association, just as Down With Disney attempted to align with Geeks + Gamers and myself in the past, in an effort to malign us by association.

He then called for his followers to report the “Down With Disney Twitter account:

http://archive.is/QCSQ2

He really wanted to show people that he was fighting the good fight.

http://archive.is/8l72P

SocialRamifications

http://archive.is/plrih

That was quite the performance indeed.  But out of all of the “bad actors” that Mr. Ward is known to have blocked, why didn’t he block the most despicable of them all, “Down With Disney”?  And why was Jason Ward “down” on pro-Legends activists?

Jason Ward claimed that Rebel Force Radio supported the notion that Jason Ward was Down With Disney, but it could just as easily have been a matter of Rebel Force Radio liking any post that was critical of Mr. Ward:

http://archive.is/JsJzO

Below are the screenshots that Jason Ward posted:

WardRebelForceRadio2

WardRebelForceRadio3


RECAP OF SECTION 5

“Down With Disney” was an effort that attempted to associate with the Pro-Legends campaigns and malign them through legacy media stories, and is linked with Jason Ward.  Down With Disney also took credit for the harassment that led to the Kelly Marie Tran Instagram Incident.

Ward seemingly suggests that he speaks on behalf of Disney, with his gloating “Mickey Mouse says sup” statement.

Multiple known Twitter accounts pointed to Ward for likely operating the “Down With Disney” account and stated that Ward has a history of that kind of activity, which the milleniumfalcon.com and Reddit threads support.

Ward had Rebel Force Radio in his sights since at least 2015.  It was about “entrenchment.”

The timestamp on the image showed that it was captured only 5 minutes after it was posted.   Mr. Ward was caught lying about the “Down With Disney” image he posted on his blog post, and about where he got it.

Mr. Ward encouraged his followers to block me on Twitter to prevent them from seeing the Reddit thread that I posted, about his disruptive activities in The Cantina forums.

Mr. Ward accused Rebel Force Radio of supporting the notion that he was acting as Down With Disney, to further tarnish RFR’s reputation among Ward’s followers.

All of this further establishes malicious behavior against fans by Ward and his associates.


6.  WOOKIEEPEDIA EDIT

Many readers may remember the story about the Wookieepedia entry on Kelly Marie Tran that was altered with purportedly racist comments.  Other readers may remember Wookieepedia’s absurd posturing after the factBrandon Rhea is the Senior Manager, Fan Engagement and Support at wikia, which hosts Wookieepedia.  Brandon is also the Product Marketing Manager at FANDOM.com.

http://archive.is/UiM5D

A simple advanced twitter search under “to and from these people,” demonstrates that Brandon Rhea and Jason Ward have a cozy relationship:

BrandonRhea

You can perform the search yourself to see more communication between Rhea and Ward.

Keep that relationship between Brandon Rhea and Jason Ward in mind, while reading the following.

Wookieepedia refused to release the username which edited the Kelly Marie Tran entry, but did provide the IP address of the user responsible for the edits.  Newsweek helpfully published that IP on December 19th, 2017, the very same day that Bryan Young tweeted about the edit.

Wookieepedia admins have removed the vandalism, closing off Rose’s page for editing. A history of the edits to the page, with attached IP addresses, is still publicly available, though the edit in question has been removed. Young told Newsweek the IP address attached to the edit in the screenshot is 64.203.14.213. The user has been blocked from using Wookieepedia or any other FANDOM wikis.

Where does 64.203.14.213 lead to?  According to the public website ipTRACKERonline.com, it leads to the Multi-Culturally Diverse Land of Inclusivity, Los Angeles, CA.  Specifically, to the suburb of Tustin, California.

TustinCalifornia

ipTRACKERonline.com also gives us additional public information on the IP, such as zip code, area code, and the ISP.

TustinCalifornia2

Now, according to Jason Ward’s public LinkedIn profile, he’s based in Placentia, California.

LinkedIn

Which according to Google maps, is only 17 minutes away from Tustin, California.

PlacentiaTustin

Coincidence?

We cannot access the exact physical address of an IP through public information.  However since we can get the names of municipalities, we can see the general proximity of these two locations.  The two locations may be close enough to represent something being posted by an associate at an office, or at an internet cafe, or anywhere that offers WiFi.  But if we had the exact addresses, the locations could be significantly closer, or even the exact same location.  Unfortunately, the only way to get a physical address from an IP is with a subpoena.  Regardless, the proximity is remarkable given that the person who made the Wookieepedia edits could have been based anywhere in the world.

This has added significance when we consider that Jason Ward was caught publicly lying about where he got the Down With Disney screencap as mentioned above in Section 5.

What are the chances that the guy who was caught lying about where he got the 5-minute-old screencap of the Down With Disney Facebook group which claimed credit for the racist Kelly Marie Tran harassment, also just happens to live within 17 minutes of the location that is traced from the IP which made the racist Wookieepedia edit in the Kelly Marie Tran entry?  The same guy who has a demonstrated history of malicious behavior against fans?  The same guy who associates with colleagues that also engage in this very same behavior?

Why would Jason Ward engage in all of this abuse and manipulation of his fellow fans?  I think Jason Ward says it best.

Ward4

“Sometimes I forget I didn’t participate in the old ways that much because I hate them. I fucking hate Star Wars fans with a passion.” ~Jason Ward, MakingStarWars.net

As previously mentioned, Jason Ward’s “Mickey Mouse says sup” comment suggests that he may be working for Disney.  But if he does work directly for Disney, then perhaps “Mickey Mouse” paid him specifically to engage in these bullying antics against the fans.

How exactly did Ward get this job?  There are some interesting connections to consider when asking that question.


RECAP OF SECTION 6

Jason Ward is based in Placentia, CA, which is roughly 17 minutes away from the physical location of the IP address that made the racist edits in the Wookieepedia entry for Kelly Marie Tran, which is in Tustin, California.

This is interesting to consider, in light of the Down With Disney account, which Jason Ward was caught lying about as mentioned above in Section 5.

Both the Down With Disney account and the Wookiepedia entry made racist comments against Kelly Marie Tran.


7.  CONNECTIONS

Now we begin to look at various connections between the Wack Pack, and Disney/Lucasfilm.

Back in December of 2015 MakingStarWars.net was declared “The King of Star Wars Leaks” by WIRED magazine.  How did that happen?

When we look at Ward’s public Linked In account, we see references to him working as a “social media marketing coordinator,” starting in 2013; the year of the sale of Lucasfilm to Disney.  It also mentions that he is commission based.  What does that mean?  We believe it means that Ward and others in the Wack Pack work as “social media influencers” for Lucasfilm, and that he is earning commission on sales for DisCanon material.

Ward gets away with using the official Star Wars logo, while no one else can.  He’s allowed to hang out on the set of The Mandalorian without security removing him, and then passes it off as guerrilla journalism.  He’s allowed to post the images he takes on his website, without Lucasfilm lawyers suing him out of existence.  He’s sponsored by Star Wars TOPPS Card Trader, and has official product sponsorships.  He gets Lucasfilm books and merchandise free to review.  He’s been getting tickets to every premiere event since The Force Awakens.  Why would Lucasfilm invite a guy who constantly leaks their material to every premiere event they have?  Unless he’s working directly for them.

But is there a more provable connection?

When we go to the Twitter account of famous screenwriter Frank Marshall, we see that he helpfully follows the Twitter account of his wife, the notorious Kathleen Kennedy.

KK1

Sure the this particular Kathleen Kennedy account could be one of many fake Kathleen Kennedy accounts on Twitter.  But then why would Kathy’s husband Frank Marshall follow that Twitter account?  Wouldn’t he know whether or not his wife had a Twitter account, and which Kathleen Kennedy account on Twitter would be authentically hers?

So we have what we believe is Kathleen Kennedy’s genuine Twitter account.  The account was created in December 2015.  There’s not much activity on it; only 9 tweets.  Most of the tweets are retweets that demonstrate Kathy’s endorsement of fringe left politics.  The tweets start in March of 2016, and end in October of 2017.  At that point the activity in the Twitter account just stops.

Kathleen Kennedy’s Twitter account has 191 followers.  But what’s more interesting, is who she follows.  Out of the hundreds of Star Wars fan websites, podcasters, discussion forums, social media groups, YouTube channels, blogs…which of them does Kathleen Kennedy choose to follow?

Only one.  Jason Ward of MakingStarWars.net.

KK2

What exactly is the nature of the Jason Ward/Kathleen Kennedy connection?  What makes Jason Ward and Making Star Wars special enough for Kathleen Kennedy to want to follow them on Twitter?  Is Ward a relative benefitting from nepotism, an in-law, a family friend, a cuckoldry paramour?  Inquiring minds want to know.

But that’s not the only connection that Wack Pack has with the queen bees at Lucasfilm.  Jason Ward, along with Bryan Young, also seem to share an online rapport with Last Jedi director Rian Johnson.

http://archive.is/8dylK

As an aside, that was a post which Rian Johnson write shortly after I published the first draft of my Geeker Gate.  Just an interesting aside.

But why would the director of a major motion picture like Star Wars, have time to mingle with a guy who writes articles for Star Wars Insider magazine, and who engages in online sex chats with underage teenagers?   Especially when Rian is purportedly busy working on another Star Wars trilogy?

And why would Rian take the time to correspond with the webmaster of a singular fan website like Making Star Wars, as seen in the Twitter exchanges below?

Ward1Ward2Ward3Ward4

Ward5Ward6

Ward7

Let’s take a closer look at some of the more interesting statements from Jason in the tweet exchanges from above:
“We’re going to figure this out.” 
“Just trying to figure out a way to cut the crap before it snowballs.”
“It’s out of hand and we’re gonna to stop it.” 

What exactly is Jason going to figure out?  Why does Jason think it’s his job to figure anything out?  Exactly what crap is Jason going to figure out a way to stop?  Why does Jason think it’s his job to stop the purported crap?  Why is Jason making these statements to Rian Johnson as though Rian is his supervisor?

Star Wars fans are individuals.  There is no collective, collaborative, cooperative, community, culture.  Fans see the movies, then express what they like or hate about them as individuals.  As it should be.  Jason simply has no place to guide or control any culture, nor should he have any.  Why would he be under the delusion that he did have such a place?  Why doesn’t Jason recognize his complete and total lack of all authority?

Perhaps Lucasfilm hired Ward and instructed him to take that place, and attempt to exert a concocted authority over fandom.   Predictably, the only option available to Ward is to be continually frustrated over his “community management” failures, as defiant fans rightly urinate all over his dumb little ego.


RECAP  OF SECTION 7

Kathleen Kennedy’s likely genuine Twitter account follows Jason Ward, and no other fan accounts.

Rian Johnson talks to Bryan Young and Jason Ward on Twitter in what appears to be a familiar relationship.  Jason Ward talks to Rian Johnson as though Rian is his supervisor.


8.  THEORIES AND SUSPICIONS

“Let the past die.  Kill it if you must” ~Kylo Ren, as written by Rian Johnson

I suspect there’s a reason that Mary Franklin never bothered to hear Rebel Force Radio’s side of the story.  I suspect that the decision to purge RFR among other pre-existing fan organizations, had already been made among the SJWs within Lucasfilm, and Mary was one of the SJWs making that decision.  I believe that the letter writing campaign was just a dog and pony show, devised to justify removing RFR from Celebration to the public.  Why listen to any appeals from Rebel Force Radio, when the decision had already been made?  Why give Rebel Force Radio early notice that they had been replaced, when that would just give them time to inform their fans of the decision and potentially take action to reverse it?

It would make some sense for Ward to attack and suppress pro-Legends campaigns if his commissions for social media influencing were based on DisCanon material.  Disrupting their fan forums would leave them in disarray and focused on things other than getting Legends back.

I believe there are two motivations here.

1. Entryism – This is where SJWs get into an organization like Lucasfilm and work to purge those who aren’t politically compliant while hiring those who are to replace them.  This is fully explained in the Geeker Gate.  When we look at the Glassdoor Reviews for Lucasfilm, there are numerous comments from presumably former employees of Lucasfilm that paraphrase the following sentiment, “Promote from within and stop hiring friends.”  This to me sounds like SJWs were working to purge the Old Guard from the company and replace it with the New Guard.  The Glassdoor reviews are given added weight when we consider that Ray Park and Daniel Logan were both reportedly purged from the 501st Legion.  It’s given even more added weight when we consider the curious case of Phil Tippett, or Ben Burtt who was quoted as saying:

“I don’t know if there’s bad blood,” he told Vanity Fair magazine recently. “I was just never consulted or hired to do any of them. No one’s ever told me why. No, I was told–on the new regime, I was just told, ‘Just stay in your room and make sounds and just send stuff to us. We’ll decide what to do.’”

And now it appears that Rachel Butera was quietly purged from Star Wars Resistance for not complying politically.

If a political purge was being conducted within Lucasfilm, then it’s reasonable to suspect that a similar effort might be made to purge the old fanbase outside of Lucasfilm as well. Who could forget, the profusion of SJW Twitter accounts that said, “If you don’t like Star Wars anymore, why don’t you move on, and focus on something else that you love instead we after?”. How many of the SJW accounts saying that were sock puppets accounts being operated by “social media influencers” who were trying to push older critical fans out of fandom?

Rebel Force Radio is part of that fan base, and its clear from Jason Ward’s “entrenchment” comment in the milleniumfalcon.com thread, that the Wack Pack had been listening to the Rebel Force Radio show for some time, anxiously awaiting an opportunity that would allow them to strike.  The numerous pro-Legends campaigns also represented the old fan base that Lucasfilm wanted purged. Particularly older “problematic” fans who would feel no qualms about criticizing the substandard material currently being created at today’s Lucasfilm., and who therefore stood in the way of Lucasfilm’s new SJW vision for the franchise.  So the “Kelly Marie Tran Instagram Incident” was orchestrated by the Wack Pack, in an effort to malign and purge the older fans from the fan base.  The only real question is if the Wack Pack was operating on their own, or if they received specific direction from higher up on the Lucasfilm food chain?  Given the demonstrated online associations with Kathleen Kennedy and Rian Johnson, I’m inclined to suspect that it may be the latter.  Regardless, either way, if they’re working for Lucasfilm, then Lucasfilm is responsible for their actions.

Why would Lucasfilm want to be rid of older fans?  For two possible reasons.  First, because old fans were perceived as soon aging out of their primary spending years, and Disney wanted to hook a new generation of children that would be fans for another 40 years, long after the First Fans had passed away.  Second, They wanted to use the franchise as a vehicle to push political propaganda into the minds of impressionable naive children.  It could be a combination of both.  But whichever theory you gravitate towards believing will likely depend on if you think the current crop working within Lucasfilm are communists or capitalists.  I know which side I fall on.

I’d prefer communism to unchecked capitalism, frankly

2. Money – The new SJWs in the Wack Pack get paid, get sponsorships, and other perks.  For instance, the #ForceOutHate campaign attacked the sponsors of Rebel Force Radio, and as a result, Harry’s Razors publicly dropped Rebel Force Radio and was then picked up by Steele Wars.

“Episode Backlash” Documentary Gets A Movie Poster

Readers may recall news about a documentary film that chronicles the backlash against the current state of Star Wars.  It is entitled Episode Backlash, and is being produced by Marc John, the man who sued Lucasfilm over a Darth Vader documentary he was producing, and won.  Today Marc John has sent out a press release, to update interested parties on the progress of the documentary:

Episode Backlash documentary releases first conceptual design artwork with a cryptic pre-release film poster

Press release

December 12 2018

British film producer Marc John, who is making a documentary exploring the fan rebellion against Disney’s handling of the Star Wars saga, titled EPISODE BACKLASH, has released the first of three cryptic film posters, together with issuing an update on the film’s progress.

John says: “The reaction from fans to news of this documentary, since the project was announced in August 2018, has been fantastic. A tremendous amount of interview footage, as well as other material, is now being shaped for what will be a 90-minute documentary. The film will be unlike anything Star Wars fans have ever seen before. I feel privileged and grateful to have the support of the fan community, who continue to prove that this rebellion is no minority and is driven by love for the saga, not by hate.”

“The first of three pre-release film posters is titled The Laser’s Edge. I welcome interpretations about its meaning. The symbolism has relevance to a major theme running throughout Star Wars. George Lucas understood the power of symbolism when he originally created this magnificent mythology. Episode Backlash aims to pay tribute to that. The meaning of the poster artwork can be summed up in a single word. I hope for this to be a fun visual puzzle for interested fans to contemplate.”

“As the Star Wars debate continues without pause, with various news outlets and others reporting numerous things as we countdown to Episode IX, I continue to observe the situation with interest as I work diligently on the film. I hope to create a thought provoking, independent film that will do justice to the subject matter and resonate down the ages.”

“I express immense gratitude to the fan community once again for answering the call to adventure to be a part of this documentary, by responding to a set of questions I pose in the film. Video submissions are now on hold, while I work through the material, but may re-open in early 2019.”

Hasbro Employs Slave Labor In China

Just in time for Christmas, World Class Bullshitters found an article from CNBC entitled, ‘Nightmare’ conditions at Chinese factories where Hasbro and Disney toys are made.  In it they write:

Chinese factory workers producing toys for Hasbro, Disney, Lego and Mattel and are being subjected to “nightmare” working conditions in the run-up to Christmas, an investigation has alleged.

The report, titled “A Nightmare for Workers,” shows findings from campaign groups China Labor Watch, ActionAid, CiR, and Solidar Suisse, who sent undercover investigators to four factories that produced toys sold at Walmart, Costco, Target and other international retailers.

Four factories were investigated between April and September this year.Investigators found there were serious violations at the factories which were endangering workers.

In peak production season, employees were working up to 175 overtime hours per month. Chinese labour law restricts monthly overtime to 36 hours per month, but the report alleged factories would often ask local governments to implement a “comprehensive working hour scheme” to override existing legislation.

Workers were also not being given the legally required 24-hour safety training before commencing work, meaning they were unaware of how to protect themselves from toxic chemicals. The investigation also showed that employers were failing to provide them with the necessary safety equipment to prevent contact with those chemicals.

According to Solidar Suisse, workers often handled chemicals such as benzene, which has been linked to poisoning and leukaemia.

Investigators also found that workers were being forced to sign blank employment contracts and were provided with poor living quarters, which often housed eight people in one room with unsanitary facilities and no hot water.

Hasbro confirmed in an email that its products were produced at two of the facilities referred to in the report.

“The allegations in the report are not substantiated by Hasbro’s extensive monitoring and audits conducted throughout 2018, and both suppliers are in good standing with Hasbro’s robust ethical sourcing requirements,” a spokesperson told CNBC.

In an emailed statement to CNBC, a Target spokesperson said it took the allegations seriously, adding: “We expect all vendors supplying products to Target to uphold our standards and treat everyone with respect, dignity and equality.”

Costco declined to comment on the report.

Costco, it would seem, was the wisest of the three.

Assembling Rose Tico action figures exhausts Chinese workers, nearly as much as watching The Last Jedi exhausted Chinese audiences.

Rachel Butera Quietly Replaced In Star Wars Resistance?

Readers may remember Rachel Butera, as the talented voice actress cast to play General Leia in Star Wars Resistance.  Back in September, Rachel Butera did an impression of Brett Kavanaugh sexual assault accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who is now a public persona and thus fair fodder for satire.  SJWs in the Collective were furious over the comical impression, and forced Rachel Butera off of social media.

To briefly review some facts about Dr. Ford, Ms. Ford’s 4th purported witness claimed no knowledge of any assault.  Ms. Ford has changed her story multiple times.   Discrepancies in Ms. Ford’s polygraph test has raised some questions.  TTwo other men claim to have assaulted Ms. Ford rather than KavanaughMs. Ford’s high school yearbook demonstrates “multiple photos and references to binge drinking and the accompanying joy of not being able to remember any of it.”   Attempts were made to cleanse the internet of Ms. Ford’s yearbhook pages.  Ms. Ford’s ex-boyfriend claimed that Ford helped a friend prep for a possible polygraph test in the past.

But drones in the Collective were furious over Butera’s impression of Dr. Ford, because they were counting on Ford and other lying accusers to prevent Kavanaugh from being appointed to The Supreme Court.  Unhinged crank Chuck Wendig was so furious over the Kavanaugh appointment, that he went on Twitter rants that earned him a 5-minute out at liberal Twitter, and a firing from Marvel Comics.  SJWs are required to #BelieveWomen without regard to evidence or lack thereof, unless the accused happens to be the co-host of Star Wars podcast.

It appears that Rachel Butera has been quietly replaced by Carolyn Hennesy, according to Brian Larsen of the Tosche Station podcast, who posts screenshots from the credits of Star Wars Resistance.

I’m sure that the production team is more than happy to comply with the Collective’s continuing political purge of Lucasfilm.  That’s what entryism is all about.

I wonder if SJWs will also seek to purge Bryan “Likes Em” Young for not instantly believing women who have zero evidence.

BodySnatchers

They’re happy to force you to comply.

Soylo Novelist Mur Lafferty Stirs Up SJWs To Harass Marvel Editor That Brought Winter To Wendig

When Chuck Wendig was fired from Marvel, he made a point of publicly waving the name of the editor who fired him on Twitter, in an effort to give his fellow drones in the Collective a target to harass.  According to Hollywood Reporter:

In a series of tweets, Wendig — who was working on both the five-issue Shadow of Vader miniseries and an additional, currently unannounced, Star Wars series for the publisher — revealed that he had been fired by Marvel in the middle of his work on the titles because, in his words, “of the negativity and vulgarity that my tweets bring. Seriously, that’s what Mark [Paniccia], the editor said. It was too much vulgarity, too much negativity on my part.”

don-suth

Chuck Wendig helpfully points out Mark Paniccia for his fellow drones, while sporting the Collective’s mandatory Soy Face.

Readers may remember author Mur Lafferty, also known as Mighty Mur, who wrote the novelization for Solo: A Star Wars StoryMighty Mur also believes that Christians treat people like animals.  Here’s what Mighty Mur had to say about the firing of Chuck Wendig:

ml-final-1-5-200x300

Mur’s hair is mighty colorful.

So it should come as no surprise, that Mighty Mur is giving Chuck Wendig an opportunity to revise history on her YouTube Channel, and work their fellow drones in the Collective into a frenzy, in order to harass the editor who performed his job correctly by firing the unhinged crank.  And as we know, they’ll refer to their harassment as “activism.”

Some interesting takeaways from the podcast:

Chuck talks about how angry Mark was. He says he’s been fired from Marvel, but not from writing Star Wars Novels.  He claims someone higher up in Lucasfilm approved of his Twitter antics. He doesn’t mention anyone specifically, but does mention #gamersgate, and blames #comicsgate for the events, along with everyone else around him including imaginary Nazis.

As a result, drones will now commence harassment of Marvel editor Mark Paniccia on behalf of Chuck Wendig.

I’m of the opinion that SJWs are utterly ineducable.  Attempting to teach them anything about any topic is like trying to teach calculus to a goat.  But with the patience of a saint, Ethan Van Sciver may be planning to put out a video soon attempting to do just that.  So I write this blog post in support of his efforts.

So though I feel my friend’s attempt on that front to be well-intentioned but pointless, I’m going to help him anyway by encouraging my readers to work on another front.

I strongly encourage all of my readers to report Mur Lafferty’s Ditch Diggers #70 podcast video on YouTube for the targeted bullying and harassment of Marvel editor Mark Paniccia.  Likewise, you can report the following tweet to Twitter for bullying and harassment, given that it promotes Ditch Diggers #70.

Bryan Young Is Also a Filmmaker

You may know Bryan Young from a lot of things.  He’s a Disney shill.  He writes for starwars.com and Star Wars Insider magazine.  He writes lies about his political adversaries in legacy media articles.  He defends an accused rapist despite claiming to a male feminist who instantly “believes women,” because that particular accused person in this case happens to be the co-host on his Full of Sith podcastHe likes to attack people who have opinions other than his own.  He blames others for people being angry over his own public statements.  He’s clueless and uneducatedHe likes to engage in online sex chats with underage teenagers.  But he’s also a filmmaker under his own company Shinebox Media Productions.

The first film that we’ll take a look at, is entitled Timmy Learns His Lesson from 2008.  It’s the story of a grown man who, assaults and beats the child bully of his own son.

The subject matter in this film may offer insight into the foundation of Bryan Young’s disregard for children when entering online sex chats.  But he’s quick to put critics at ease in the comments section of his video:

Timmy

In the SJW collective, the children make the rules and order the parents around.  So it never would have occurred to Bryan to explain to the “kids” that it is inappropriate for an adult to beat a child to a bloody pulp, and would therefore be inappropriate to depict such a scenario on film.  Nor is an adult beating a child to a bloody pulp particularly funny.

Next, up is the trailer for his film, Infidelity Investment, from 2006.  Now, the trailer on Bryaon’s own YouTube channel is blocked in my country.  However, the internet is forever, and therefore the trailer does show up on another channel.  The film deals with what could be Bryan’s favorite topic of all, cuckoldry.  Enjoy!
