SJW Amusingly Orders Backlashers, “Enough Is Enough”

Neil Harrington writes another ignorant piece at dorksideoftheforce.net entitled, Star Wars fans who like Star Wars: The Last Jedi aren’t real fans?

wagging-finger

He hasn’t showered in weeks.

In it he writes:

The backlash continues from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, with fans of a galaxy far, far away drifting further and further apart as each day passes.

Talk to your peers.  They’ve been saying that the backlash doesn’t exist.  Boyega claims that it’s only six dudes.

Instead of using these differences to build a solid foundation of fandom, a sect of the fandom is destroying all George Lucas built.

No.  The SJW contagion within Lucasfilm is destroying all that George Lucas built.  The fans can’t be blamed for pointing out that they’re producing garbage.

Star Wars is meant to be an avenue of escapism. Fun. Adventure. Fantasy. Instead, it’s turned grown men into whining, little babies.

Frankly, with articles like yours, you appear to be one of the whiniest babies on the internet.

More than that, a substantial amount of verbal abuse continues to spew from the mouths, or keyboards, of fans towards Rian Johnson and Kathleen Kennedy, especially.

Verbal abuse?  Or genuine criticism?  As a snowflake, can you distinguish between them?

This sort of behavior is unacceptable and needs to stop. Enough is enough.

It’s simply not your place to make these ridiculous proclamations, and of course, you have no authority to do so anyway.  People are free to react in most any manner they like, and of course ought to be.

Our friend Alex Damon from Star Wars Explained says it best in a recent tweet on what’s acceptable behavior and what’s not.

What I understand: Not being excited about an upcoming Star Wars project.

What I don’t understand: BEING FURIOUS ABOUT THAT STAR WARS PROJECT I KNOW ALMOST NOTHING ABOUT THAT NO ONE IS GOING TO FORCE ME TO EXPERIENCE ANYWAY.

Alex has his own problems with purely imaginary authority, and I’ve addressed that here.  But to his point here, the issue is far more complex than simply being furious about a Star Wars project that we know nothing about.  A great deal of the fury is in reaction to the misbehavioral antics of Lucasfilm representatives, and the utter trash they’ve produced thus far.

Honestly, that’s been the approach from the angry mob of Star Wars fans who are unhappy with the current direction of the Lucasfilm team.

No.  It hasn’t.  You’re making that up.

From observing social media, angry YouTube warriors, and the comments sections of a variety of venues; a substantial amount of people are not giving the new content a fighting chance — making up their minds before they even see it.

And others are basing their opinion on content that has already been released, such as Han’s adventures in baby sitting, or Lando admiring his own genitalia.

If that’s your fancy, so be it. But, the hatred spread throughout the galaxy should not be tolerated.

What shouldn’t be tolerated is the hatred within Lucasfilm for the fans, and media sycophants such yourself facilitating that and covering for it.

One YouTuber even stated that Kathleen Kennedy “earned that hate.” By hate, he means all of the complaints and criticism spewed by the current direction of the franchise.

Really? Kathleen Kennedy and Rian Johnson have both earned all of this “hate”? Give me a break. No, they have not. Honestly, this approach is flat out offensive.

It may be offensive to you, and yet it’s true anyway.  Lucasfilm representatives like Kathleen Kennedy and Rian Johnson prattle on about equal representation and gender equality, then go on to claim that “The Force is Female.”  They’ve inserted uneducated social justice lecturing into what was “meant to be an avenue of escapism. Fun. Adventure. Fantasy.”  That’s what’s genuinely offensive here.

If you don’t like the direction of the franchise, then don’t watch it. Or move on to some other source of entertainment that you enjoy. 

The box office for The Last Jedi, and the waning toy and merchandise sales demonstrate that many normal people are in fact doing just that.

I don’t understand creating YouTube channels, message boards, or websites with the sole purpose of expressing hatred.

Well that’s because you’re ignorant.  It’s called protest.  Certainly you SJWs know a thing or two about protest, don’t you?  It’s about either restoring the franchise to what it was before the social justice contagion infected it, or putting the franchise out of its misery.  Either would be acceptable at this point.

Expressing your concerns and criticism is one thing, but creating a community with a “what I don’t like” MO is a sad look and unhealthy for the entire fan base.

Yes, yes. Snowflake SJWs always find contrary opinions “unhealthy.”  Tough.  Go find a safe space.

What also gets my midichlorians boiling is others I’ve engaged with, even within our own comments section, who go as far to say that those who enjoyed the latest addition to the galaxy far, far away (like myself) are not real fans.

Really? Since when did you all become the police of who is allowed to be fans and who is not?

Maybe about the same time that you became the police of fandom reaction.  But honestly, who said this?  Can you provide direct linked quotes?

I have no qualms with those who dislike Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but I don’t understand the approach of rallying around to bash those who both created it and enjoy it. 

Let’s be absolutely crystal clear on something.  The current employees at Lucasfilm did not create it.

We need to do better as Star Wars fans (yes we are all fans even though we disagree) and as humanity in general.

I believe we will make great strides towards this goal if we discuss this issue in a civil manner and listen to one another – making progress towards a common ground of peace, inclusion, and reconciliation.

How about if we express our thoughts in any way we damn well please?  Particularly since we’re going to anyway.

Did it ever occur to you Neil, that as someone who enjoyed The Last Jedi, that you’re not even part of the equation here?  That you’re inserting yourself into a conversation between displeased fans and Lucasfilm, when you don’t really belong?

  1. Isn’t it funny how Social Justice Warriors demand that we let them riot, scream, act like beasts and destroy unopposed and without any criticism, but when we state our concerns they try to shame us into silence by claiming we’re being irrational?

  3. I might be wrong, but doesn’t an article like this imply that they are indeed interested in the movie because of what it means to them ideologically?

    If it was just a good movie (and they honestly believed that), why would they even care about a backlash 5 months after it was released? People who just like a movie usually don’t care about backlashers and it’s also usually nothing worth reporting about.

    Imagine a movie that was ideologically neutral. A sequel to some famous movie that simply wasn’t very good.

    It would also have backlash (that is, people thinking it’s shit), but I think it’s unlikely that bigger publications would even care. You wouldn’t see people coming out of the woodworks of the mainstream media everywhere to defend the movie. They would just say “oh well, some liked it, some didn’t”.

    So I think they’re really just defending the ideology. It’s about that and nothing else.

    The other option is that Disney is paying them and it’s about the money and reputation engineering.

    • I think you’re right in that a big part of this is protecting their political ideology. But I also think that there’s another part of this, that is them protecting their livelihood. Neil Harrington is cited as a Star Wars Co-Expert on the dorksideoftheforce.com website. If the franchise goes down, what would that do to the value of his expertise?

      • Very true. I totally forgot to take into account that some people literally have jobs consisting of writing about the franchise. Oh well.
