I often write on this blog about how SJWs are all universally uneducated. They are. And they offer examples to easily demonstrate this fact with nearly every word they stupidly speak and write. Today’s example, comes from uneducated author Barry Lyga who posts a letter of monumental stupidity on his website.
NO BOOK DEALS FOR TRAITORS
THIS IS A LETTER OF INTENT FROM PUBLISHING PROFESSIONALS OF THE UNITED STATES.
We all love book publishing, but we have to be honest — our country is where it is in part because publishing has chased the money and notoriety of some pretty sketchy people, and has granted those same people both the imprimatur of respectability and a lot of money through sweetheart book deals.
As members of the writing and publishing community of the United States, we affirm that participation in the administration of Donald Trump must be considered a uniquely mitigating criterion for publishing houses when considering book deals.
Consequently, we believe: No participant in an administration that caged children, performed involuntary surgeries on captive women, and scoffed at science as millions were infected with a deadly virus should be enriched by the almost rote largesse of a big book deal. And no one who incited, suborned, instigated, or otherwise supported the January 6, 2021 coup attempt should have their philosophies remunerated and disseminated through our beloved publishing houses.
“Son of Sam” laws exist to prevent criminals from benefiting financially from writing about their crimes. In that spirit, those who enabled, promulgated, and covered up crimes against the American people should not be enriched through the coffers of publishing.
We are writers, editors, journalists, agents, and professionals in multiple forms of publishing. We believe in the power of words and we are tired of the industry we love enriching the monsters among us, and we will do whatever is in our power to stop it.
The words of the collective, collaborative, cooperative, publishing and writing community have never been more ridiculous. Particularly when you have genuinely sketchy people such as Star Wars author Chuck Wendig signing this letter, who can barely compose a coherent sentence at all.
The letter contains the characteristic laundry list of uneducated political gripes that we often see frothing SJWs recite when they lack any real argumentation, which is pretty much all of the time. One of the items on their grocery list regards anyone “who incited, suborned, instigated, or otherwise supported the January 6, 2021 coup attempt.” In reality this would include idiot activists who engaged in voter fraud to install the CCP’s pet gerbil as the next U.S. President. That’s the actual coup.
But that aside, I doubt Barry would be referring to the SJW infiltrators who have now been discovered to be responsible for inciting the riots on Capital Hill. Such as the following BLM activist who apparently did not act alone:
Or CNN’s very own Jade Sacker:
Who the FBI has now arrested:
Or Aaron Mostofsky:
SJWs always delude themselves into thinking that everything they do is blazing some new trail. So they’re oblivious to the fact that this infiltrator tactic among leftist “activists” is well known and has been around for a while now. Time is early so more will likely be found out over the next few weeks. But it’s doubtful that these “activists” will be affected by Barry’s moronic letter. In fact, not only will they get a sweet book deal, but their actions have likely secured them tenureship at their local universities as well.
What Barry has no hope of ever understanding, is that it is he and his idiot comrades who are the actual monsters, and always have been. Signing a letter demanding political compliance is an act of fascism, which as we know is the better looking sister of communism. And communists are always monsters. It’s just how the world works. So being a traitor to communism, is a very good thing indeed, since it’s the communists themselves who are the actual traitors to America.
But with seething frothing madmen like Barry coming to power, don’t be surprised if you see them emulating Saddam Hussein’s notorious actions against their political adversaries once they take their seats.

Recently, Star Wars High Republic author Charles Soule touted Light of the Jedi debuting on the meaningless New York Times Bestseller List:
THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER LIST
A riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma, as the saying goes.
NYT keeps a tight lid on its process for selecting bestsellers. It is known that NYT samples its own list of certain booksellers across the country—though which ones make the cut are a tightly guarded secret—then look at the data with wise NYT brains, and decide whom they think should be on the list.
It’s said that this is done to keep people from gaming the system, which is partially true. But it’s also done so that The New York Times can have a say about which books get the extra credibility of being named a bestseller.
I’m certainly not the only one who sees potential problems with this system.
Remember: NYT and WSJ list = more money.
So a small group of people look at highly selective data to decide whom they deem important enough to be called a “New York Times bestseller.” At this point, we’ve come pretty far from “the books that sell the most copies.” We’ve laid some groundwork, so now I can share the really weird stuff.
In other words, like the Nobel Peace Prize, or the Oscars, or the Grammys, or the Saturn Awards, or Rotten Tomatoes scores, the NY Times bestseller list is a political circle jerk where activists stroke each others egos with meaningless accolades based purely on political compliance.
Because why would Target need to mark down a brand new bestseller at 30% off?
SJW dopes screech in response, “But they ‘literally’ sold 200K copies proving it’s a big success!”
Well dopey, those were sales to retailers. The retailers still have to sell those copies to customers, which they apparently can’t do without deep, deep discounts.
Ethan Van Sciver explains:
According to The Sun:
Star Wars bosses leave residents furious after building huge set in sleepy village
STAR Wars bosses are in a galactic dogfight with residents of a sleepy village after building this giant set.
It will be the sci-fi backdrop for the Obi-Wan Kenobi spin-off TV series starring Ewan McGregor — and could be in place for three years.
But it sparked dozens of complaints over disturbing wildlife, light pollution and traffic in Little Marlow, Bucks, where council chiefs have let Disney use a former quarry site.
“It might generate some jobs, but this is a pretty rural area which has always been quiet and peaceful – the thought of turning it into some sort of intergalactic war zone to make TV shows is horrifying.
“The set is massive, with great big buildings on it alongside loads of heavy duty machinery coming and going – it’s just totally out of keeping with the countryside vibe here and people are up in arms about it.”
It doesn’t sound like the Kenobi production will be saving the Earth with environmental friendliness.

The Chinese Star Wars story, The Vow of Silver Dawn, is not to be officially translated into English. Fans will therefore do the translation anyways.
A Reddit user has posted translations of the first two Chapters. The story centers around a despotic President of an Outer Rim planet, and a Jedi’s investigation into that Presidents purported crimes.
And right away, it focuses on class warfare between the rich and the poor.
Here are some excerpts from the first chapter.
Bergamore, located in the Outer Rim of the galaxy, had followed its irregular orbit around a binary star system for countless years. The planet merited only occasional attention from the Republic’s indifferent citizens, who viewed it as impoverished and backward.
In the view of the Senate, Jamie Brasen was honest and upright, with a gentle and humble personality. Under his rule, Bergamore had become increasingly prosperous and rich, gradually ridding itself of its poor and underdeveloped reputation, and Brasen built up the planetary capital of Green Sunlight into a model city. The thriving metropolis amazed countless tourists from far and wide. But Brasen himself had maintained a meager life for decades; even when he attended his conference with the Republic, Brasen had worn a patchwork jacket.
Surely, there was nothing more to this so-called saint than that.
“Sure enough, there are no real saints in the world…”
A human woman covered her beautiful, dignified face with a gray cloak and walked quietly down a dark and damp street, looking at the crookedly-built temporary buildings along both sides of the path, and the shivering abandoned children under the shelter of awnings. She couldn’t help pursing her lips tightly at the sight, and sighed sadly within her heart.
Not far from this street – 20 meters overhead, to be precise – was the proudest, most affluent city on the planet of Bergamore, gleaming like a steel green forest. The city’s architectural style had been based on that of Coruscant. Although the sprawl had not spread over every corner of Bergamore as had happened to Coruscant, the city shown as bright as a star for the remote and impoverished planet.
However, how many people knew that under its dazzling epidermis, the city was rotten to the bone? How many knew that of Bergamore’s 3 billion people, only a very small number could live a life of luxury in the modern buildings of the capital Green Sunlight?
Entering the only upper-class guest room, she took off her cloak, exhaled, and clicked on a huge projection covering an entire wall of the room. The screen, displayed by a customized communication device in the shape of a wrist bracelet she wore, transmitted new data.
Two holoimages quickly lit up on the wall. In the first, haggard children were kept in dark cages like animals, awaiting their fate as livestock before a slaughter.
In contrast, the other image showed revelers in the upper level of the city, drunk and enjoying a life comparable to that of the rich nobles at the core of the Republic.
There is also a description of the President who commits his crimes in a secret mansion where he lives a life of glamour…
The Quarren felt even more ashamed when he heard this. “Jamie Brasen is a very cunning politician. I have been here for many years, and I have never him in the act of wrongdoing.”
“Being able to verify the other party’s cunning is still the result of important work,” Mostema assured the Quarren.
The Quarren was stunned momentarily, then said in a low voice, “I am afraid that would be a bit insufficient. The President’s crimes are rarely committed firsthand; almost all of them are done by others. There is no proof that directly connections him to a crime. And, his perception within the Republic is nearly pristine. Everyone thinks of Brasen as a humble and incorruptible philanthropist. He also has the most prestigious lawyers in the galaxy at his disposal, and has turned black to white through the courts many times, in fact, with legal deposition on his side. Taking on a politically-strong man who has controlled this planet for decades is far-fetched in itself, so I hope you can…”
The Quarren said helplessly, “If you believe that’s possible, then the situation is very dire. Jamie has been in control of Bergamore for so long, and the whole planet has become like a combination of labyrinth and spider web what with illegal intrigue, that it is difficult to pinpoint his location at a given time through peripheral clues. If you will have to speak with him, you can only try to find the legendary manor. Some have said that the President built a private mansion on the outskirts of Green Sunlight, where he lives a life of glamour. More importantly, he is known to entertain guests at the manor. Most of is crimes are designed and completed within the manor’s walls. I have been investigating for many years, but I have yet to find the slightest trace about the manor’s location…”

Edward Cheng, Chief Executive Officer of China Literature, says they are very excited to be partnering with Disney and Lucasfilm. I imagine he is. Edward is also the Vice President of Tencent and Chief Executive Officer of Tencent Pictures, which has plans to release a film celebrating the brutal CCP according to China Daily:
Updates on a total of 56 projects were announced, including plans to release an epic film 1921 to commemorate the centenary anniversary of the founding of the Chinese Communist Party of China, as well as the second season of Qing Yu Nian, a sought-after drama adapted from a namesake popular online novel.
Now that the CCP’s pet gerbil has been placed into the U.S. Presidency, and with the possibility of Bob Iger being appointed as ambassador to China, the propagandist possibilities are endless.
James Waugh, VP of Franchise Content & Strategy for Lucasfilm, says that the author of this story will bring very specific Chinese perspectives to the world building. Though it’s likely that James conflates the perspective of the Chinese people with the perspective of the CCP, which are entirely different and separate.
Chen Yang, the Vice President & Chief Editor of China Literature, claims that this effort will show online literature’s “inclusiveness.” Amusingly however, we already know that this “inclusive” story will feature an exclusively Chinese sector of the galaxy. Sixth Tone allows us to see through the foggy veil of CCP propaganda:
This distant star system, says Wang, is a uniquely Chinese corner of the “Star Wars” universe. Although populated by some recognizable races from the “Star Wars” universe — twi’leks, rodians, wookiees, and the like — it mostly consists of a race of humans with black hair and dark eyes, whose given names, space-food, architecture, values, culture, and habits reflect those of the Chinese.
“Even if it’s not Earth-food or Earth-beef, maybe the way it’s cooked or the way it’s named will instantly make you think of Chinese food,” says Wang. “Like braising in water or stewing in soy sauce.”
Perhaps this is why Lucasfilm isn’t offering an English translation. But not to worry, fans are busy translating it anyways.
Star Wars has been faced with mostly disinterest by the Chinese People in recent years, which may be due to the films being banned in the communist country 40 years ago. Or it may be due to the fact that the Chinese people find it difficult to muster nostalgia over plastic stormtroopers, when they’re under the yoke of real life stormtroopers who force them to work as slave labor in Hasbro’s Chinese factories, while Disney films a movie right next to Chinese internment camps starring an actress that may or may not have been used by the CCP to sex bribe Hunter Biden. Either way, this is likely an attempt to increase the appeal of Star Wars to the Chinese market after the Rose Tico character failed to do so. Good luck.
I wonder if there’s any LGBTQ+ representation in this Chinese Star Wars story. It would be interesting to see if the CCP would comply with the activism of the pronoun people, since the CCP is known to ban gay content outright. I encourage activists everywhere to start asking Lucasfilm about these matters.

Ryan Kinel comments:
E. Anne Convery is the author of the Star Wars short story Bug, which appears in The Clone Wars: Stories of Light and Dark.
According to Wookieepedia:
Anne has some dumb things to say about politics in Star Wars:
As a writer, E. Anne should consider purchasing a dictionary published before 1968. Because “free-wheelin” and Antifa mix like oil and water.
The Democrat’s goon squad appears to more closely resemble wannabe stormtroopers, who seek to enforce their own moronic politics onto disinterested citizens.
But that’s not all E. Anne has to say. She also expresses Lucasfilm’s requisite hatred for white people.
And as to be expected, E. Anne expresses her complete and total ignorance of American Exceptionalism, and the Bill of Rights.
Perhaps Lucasfilm’s hallowed halls ought to be fitted with padded walls.

Meet Amy Mebberson, Illustrator for Disney Publishing and Hasbro. Also, creator of Pocket Princesses:
Amy’s here to cancel John Cleese for being an “old white guy.”
It’s probably time to bring back Yahoo Serious.
Since the beginning I’ve written on this blog numerous times about Cultural Subversion and how it manifests in the Star Wars franchise. Here we have Star Wars author Rae Carson openly calling for “cultural sea change.”
What Rae has no hope of understanding is that “toxic masculinity” created the current culture that allows her to broadcast her thoughts on Twitter without being put into prison for it. Other cultures aren’t so kind, and the type of culture that Rae’s activism is working for won’t be that kind either.
But make no mistake, “cultural sea change” is merely hyperbolic cover for the sick desire to control culture in its entirety.
