Jonathon Morales lashes out in a hilarious temper tantrum at dorksideoftheforce.com entitled, Boycotting Solo: A Star Wars Story? You’re not a real fan.
In it he writes:
Why Boycotting Solo: A Star Wars Story because you didn’t like Star Wars: The Last Jedi is pretty dumb.
Not so dumb if even internal Disney staff are finally recognizing the problem.
I will say it even if no one else will. If you’re boycotting Solo: A Star Wars Storybecause you didn’t like Star Wars: The Last Jedi, you’re not a real fan. And I don’t want to hear your justification for hating The Last Jedi, your fandom membership card is now revoked.
Who exactly appointed you as Fandom Police? You do realize of course, that your authority is purely imaginary, right? God help us if you ever become a judge.
Now maybe I’m an easy mark for Lucasfilm. I have loved everything Star Wars since before I can remember.
All 20 years?
Perhaps it’s because as a fan even though I feel some ownership over the franchise, I realize that I’m just here to come along for the ride.
Is this where we should talk about entitlement?
Maybe it ’s because I realize that the franchise is greater than just what my desire is for these films.
It hasn’t been since Disney has taken over.
If you’re a huge EU/Legends fan, there are enough references in the film to get you to crack a smile. The fact that EU content is getting folded back into canon should make you excited.
Not necessarily if it’s being distorted with social justice dullardry in the process.
But I realize that haters gotta hate.
Let’s face; it doesn’t matter what I or anyone else tells you about Solo, you hate it for the sake of hating it. What’s sad is that you hated it before you even watched it, if, in fact, you went to see the film.
Well, that’s because you’re arguing against points that no one is making. You’re missing the bigger picture. The boycott against Solo wasn’t really about the film itself. It was about the imposition of moronic social justice propaganda into the franchise as a whole, and about the poor treatment of fans by Lucasfilm representatives. So you really just don’t have any idea as to what you’re talking about here.
Because what I think is sadder than you boycotting Solo: A Star Wars Story is you tweeting the hashtag while posting a photo of yourself in an empty theater. Stirring the crap while not even being a person of your own convictions is tragic.
What evidence do you have that the people who tweeted the hashtags and photos of empty theaters were boycotters themselves? You do realize of course, that it is possible to support a boycott while not engaging in the boycott yourself, right?
Or maybe you’ve just outgrown the franchise — it’s entirely possible. There are times the things we loved just don’t hit those right notes for us anymore. If that’s the case, then move on.
Don’t cry, don’t whine, move on.
You don’t want us to boycott, but you want us to go. How do you reconcile that? How about if we stick around and try to get the franchise back on course instead? You know, since you don’t have any authority to order anyone around anyway?
And if you hate on these new films for more despicable reasons, well — don’t even get me started on that.
I won’t. I’ve already discredited the moronic point you were about to make multiple times on this blog, so I’d prefer not to have to go through those motions, yet again.
The point is don’t ruin it for the rest of us. We love the ride we’ve been on since Star Wars: A New Hope released in 1977, and we don’t want to hop off.
Who’s ruining it for you? Go see it 20 times. Go order the DVD and masturbate with it. Enjoy. Do you really need our approval to enjoy it?
Would you boycott your favorite show just because you didn’t like one episode in the series?
Wouldn’t that be a bit petty?
But remember that if you can’t love something at your self-perceived worst, maybe you didn’t genuinely love it in the first place.
Few things are more amusing than a child who wasn’t even an itch in their daddy’s pants back in 1977, telling normal people who is or who isn’t a real fan as though they have the authority to do so.
And for that, your fan card has been revoked.
You have exactly zero authority. In which case, I believe you might know what you can do with yourself. Please do so in a workmanlike manner.
Remember Jonathan, self-appointed authority and massive stupidity always walks hand in hand. It’s a universal constant.
What you’re really mad at here, is the discovery that it is in fact you and your uneducated SJW peers who comprise the “tiny vocal minority.” And it’s transparent. Well, not to worry. Your SJW peers have instructed you to ignore us, because we don’t exist anyway. Please report back to the Collective for re-education. Thank you.
Yet another clueless SJW moron.
