Phil LaMarr: A Leading Name In Hypocrisy And Stupidity

 

FistoDualSabers-LoG

Why isn’t this character voiced by a Nautolan?

The profession of acting is the profession of playing pretend.  Actors pretend to be things that they’re not.  This is a double-edged sword because while it affords normal people with endless hours of entertainment and escapism, it also leads actors to delude themselves into thinking that they’re as knowledgeable about complex geo-political and socio-economic matters as some of the characters they play.  Of course, they very rarely ever are.

But the concept of playing pretend is now taken very seriously by idiot SJWs who demand “representation” and other such foolishness.  So much so, that now even cartoon characters must be played by their corresponding racial counterparts.  For instance, virtue-signaling actors from the Simpsons and The Family Guy are walking away from roles that do not match the melanin content in their own skin in response to the current day political hysteria.  This leaves one to wonder what the status of Darth Vader is?

Vader

Mr. Jones’ melanin content does not match the character.

The pure insanity of SJW ideology can lead us down a rabbit hole of all manner of ridiculous questions.  For instance, what about Scooby Doo?  Surely there must be a dog who can voice this dog character.

Scoobydoo

Canine voices are underrepresented in animation.

But the voice of The Clone War’s Kit Fisto, Phil LaMarr, is having none of this, and is ordering critics of this ridiculousness to not speak his name.

Phil

For Phill LaMarr, it’s melanin matching for thee, but not for me.  Once again, hypocrisy is the foundation of all SJW thought.

But interestingly, one of the primary people who created a “false equivalency” about underrepresented minorities voicing majorities was Phil LaMarr himself.

Phil2

Phil LaMarr has apparently changed his mind about voice not having a race now that the Collective has ordered the abject stupidity of this new programming in all of its drones.

But since Phill LaMarr is ordering critics of this stupidity to not utter his name, let’s go ahead and repeat his name as often as possible to piss him off, and to demonstrate his complete and total lack of all authority.

UPDATE:

Apparenlty Phill LaMarr is also guilty of taking away an Asian voice acting role.  A terrible infraction in the collective, collaborative, cooperative, community.

Phil7

Phil8

Phil has not answered Shuunnico’s question as of this writing.

UPDATE:

Apparently Phil LaMarr has also appropriated a Latino character, by voicing Bail Organa on The Clone Wars.

BailOrgana

Latinos may or may not be underrepresented according to Phil LaMarr.

Rian Johnson Pops His Head Up For More Stupidity

RianJohnson1

Nothing but worthless garbage comes out of his pie hole.

Rian Johnson had to add his half-cent into the conversation over the Prequels on Twitter.

Rian

Meanwhile, in the real world, entitled children unwittingly acting as fascists don’t give a damn about innovators of technical sea changes.

Guillotine

These fascist children feel entitled to Bezos’ head.

Hey, guess who else is fond of guillotines?  A writer from a children’s franchise.

Star Of Cinematic Tranquilizer Craps On The Prequels

Remember all of those idiot SJWs who screeched at normal people that the fans were responsible for all of the Prequel hate that led to the harassment of Jake Lloyd and Ahmed Best, even though both Jake Lloyd and Ahmed Best said the exact opposite repeatedly?

Well, Alan Tudyk, star of the easily forgotten Rogue One, has this to say about the Prequels:

Alan

How long will it take the legacy media to pester Alan Tudyk over his “toxic” remark?  Surely not as fast as it took Rogue One to put me to sleep.  Twice.

High Republic: Self-Aggrandizing Allegory

SJWs think of no one more highly than themselves.  This of course fuels their narcissistic need for “representation.”

It’s an odd thing, given that SJWs are in fact the dumbest creatures that the human species has ever produced, and there’s absolutely no question about that fact whatsoever.

Abolitionist

So leave it to the uneducated dunderheads at Lucasfilm to write a transparent allegory explaining to the world just how wise and wonderful all of their idiot activism is.

IGN publishes the first chapter, and I’m just now getting around to reading it because I’m bored at the moment.  Behold the first chapter of STAR WARS: THE HIGH REPUBLIC – LIGHT OF THE JEDI By Charles Soule:

The Force is with the galaxy.

It is the time of The High Republic: a peaceful union of like-minded worlds where all voices are heard, and governance is achieved through consensus, not coercion or fear. It is a time of ambition, of culture, of inclusion, of Great Works. Visionary Chancellor Lina Soh leads the Republic from the elegant cityworld of Coruscant, located near the bright center of the Galactic Core.

I’m sure the union is very peaceful.

“The meaning of peace is the absence of opposition to socialism.” ~Karl Marx

Maybe they should change the name of the franchise to Star Peace.  And it’s all governed by the consensus of the collective, collaborative, cooperative, community.  In other words, it’s governed by the pure idiocy of groupthink.  As General George Patton famously said, “If everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isn’t thinking.”  This of course explains the caliber of authors at Lucasfilm, where it appears that genuine thought is prohibited.

Unfortunately for the pod people in the High Republic, there are those in the Outer Rim who still think individually, and naturally seek to escape the oppression of groupthink as any normal person does.

But beyond the Core and its many peaceful Colonies, there is the Rim—Inner, Mid, and finally, at the border of what is known: The Outer Rim. These worlds are filled with opportunity for those brave enough to travel the few well-mapped hyperspace lanes leading to them, though there is danger as well. The Outer Rim is a haven for anyone seeking to escape the laws of the Republic, and is filled with predators of every type.

But busybody SJW activists, I mean the Jedi of the High Republic, are incapable of leaving people the hell alone and minding their own business.

Chancellor Soh has pledged to bring the Outer Rim worlds into the embrace of the Republic through ambitious outreach programs such as the Starlight Beacon. Order and justice are maintained on the galactic frontier by Jedi Knights, guardians of peace who have mastered incredible abilities stemming from a mysterious energy field known as the Force. The Jedi work closely with the Republic, and have agreed to establish outposts in the Outer Rim to help any who might require aid.

Ony a modern sci-fi writer would use a phrase as crass as “outreach programs” that instantly takes you out of the Galaxy Far Far Away and brings you right to current-day Earth.  One wonders why Soule didn’t choose the word “entryism” to describe the activities of the Jedi outposts in the Outer Rim.  Because apparently, the inclusion of all voices don’t include the voices of those in the Outer Rim, who haven’t yet been assimilated into the Collective, I mean the High Republic.  Those voices won’t be included until they’ve been changed to conform to the idiot SJW consensus.  I mean Jedi consensus.

So let me guess; High Republic is Lucasfilm’s outreach program for Fandom Menacers in the Outer Rim.

The Canceling Of Chuck Wendig Begins

ItHasBegun

Apparently, there are new #MeToo style allegations against science fiction and fantasy author Myke Cole.

MiykeCole1

And apparently, Jaym Gates, editor for Strategy Strikes Back: How Star Wars Explains Modern Military Conflict, isn’t happy that Chuck Wendig is defending Myke Cole.

PodPeople

The ultra-progressive jury has spoken.

Well, our old pal Chuck Wendig has something to say about all of this. But not on Twitter. Chuck says the following on his appropriately named blog, Terrible Minds:

My Twitter account remains locked due to GG-style harassment of me (death threats, doxxing, harassing my followers and repliers) tied to the Internet Archive situation, but those who don’t follow me wouldn’t have seen my recent statements, so I thought it best to put something here, too.

When we translate “CG-Style harassment” into Realitese, what Chuck is really saying is that people responded to him, causing him to say something stupid like his “wood chipper” comment and Twitter took action.  So once again Chuck blames others for his own blatant idiocy.  He continues:

Recently it has come to light that a handful of authors inside science-fiction and fantasy publishing have engaged in various acts of harassment and abuse against women. These authors are authors with which I am friendly, particularly online — Paul Krueger, Myke Cole, Sam Sykes — and I am deeply sorry if that friendliness or if me boosting their work and amplifying their voices has in any way given them cover for their actions or given them unearned trust. I never saw the harassment or abuse in play, but my ignorance of it is not an excuse, and I should be better about actively attempting to make spaces like conventions and conferences safe. Some of the women who were harassed or abused are friends or acquaintances, as well, and that makes me heartsick to realize that I didn’t know or see what they were going through. It’s not enough to simply go along to get along, but rather, to maintain a vigil and to be ever on the lookout for harassment and attempt to call it in when witnessed.

I’ve cut personal and professional ties with these men and will not be signal boosting them further. I’m listening to victims and believe them. The men have apologized but it’s not on me to accept, deny, or judge those apologies.

So Chuck is bright enough to recognize that the Collective will be coming for him if he doesn’t grovel sufficiently.  But it would be interesting to see if Chuck would maintain his “believe victims” mentality should he ever be the target of a #MeToo campaign.  Should that ever happen, I predict that Chuck will then write blog posts about the importance of due process.  But I digress.

Will Chuck’s groveling save him from the medieval kangaroo courts of the finger-pointing pod people?  Only time will tell.

Either way, this could prove to be quite the fly in Chuck’s ointment if he’s expecting a big Star Wars comeback via The Mandalorian.

Star Wars Bot Net Discovered In 2017?

A 2017 paper published out of the University College London discusses the discovery of a large Star Wars Bot Net created in 2013.  Disney purchased the Star Wars franchise in 2012.

Bots0

In the paper, they make the suggestion that 350,000 Star Wars bots are under the control of a “botmaster.”

Bots1

Their primary function during their active phase was to quote passages from Star Wars novels.

Bots2

The study then went on to list the identifying characteristics of these bots.

Bots3

Bots4

The study claims that the bots created from June 20th, to July 14th in 2013.  On the 14th, all the bots ceased activity and were silent up until the publication of this study in 2017.

Bots5

Bots6

The study claims that the bots were designed specifically to not be noticed.

Bots7

The study suggests that the bots were created to be hidden until needed, and that the “botmaster” could reactivate them at a time of their choosing.  Such bots would tweet out spam, fake trending topics, opinion manipulation, astroturfing attacks, fake followers, and sample contamination.

Bots8

Now, this study is hosted by regmedia.co.uk so I can’t know if it’s genuine at this time.  I have sent an email to the email address listed above, and will update this blog post if I receive a response.

But if genuine, this does present some interesting questions.

What was happening from June 20th, to July 14th in 2013?  According to gradesaver.com, scriptwriting for The Force Awakens began in January of 2013, and was completed by January 2014.  So this time frame would have occurred halfway through the screenwriting process.

Did this Botnet play any role in the Black Stormtrooper controversy which was discredited in 2018 by William Proctor of Bournemouth University?

What happened with the Botnet after 2017?  Was it activated?

Was this Botnet designed and waiting to respond to any potential backlash, since the direction of the Disney Trilogy was intentionally “dangerous because it makes it so about the women of Star Wars” as Dave Filoni stated?  Were they waiting to manipulate opinion in that event?

Did this Botnet contaminate the samples used by Bethany Lacina in her Twitter research which was used to characterize the “alt-right” as guilty of racist and/or misogynist harassment?

Did this Botnet contaminate the samples in Morten Bay’s study on the politicization of Star Wars fandom and The Last Jedi?  Was the BotNet used to harass Kelly Marie Tran as a Huffington Post article suggested?

Did the BotNet contaminate the sample of George McIntire’s article and Corinium’s Disney commissioned study which disproved the “tiny vocal minority” narrative?  Did Disney commission Corinium’s study specifically to study the effects of this Botnet?

Was the BotNet used to affect production of The Last Jedi as Rian Johnson suggested?  Was the BotNet used to create Rian Johnson’s 553K fake Twitter followers?

Could the “botmaster” be Star Wars social media manager Michelle Buchman?

And of course, is this botnet study genuine?

There’s simply more questions than answers at this time.

Lucasfilm Partnership Specialist Fired Over Sexual Assault Accusations

Yesterday I wrote about Lucasfilm Partnership Specialist Tyler Westhause who was recently accused of sexual assault.  Apparently, EA has parted ways with Tyler over the matter.

EA1

However, an anonymous 3rd Party shared the following with me:

Of course, disgruntled SJWs call everything and anything racist.  So the accusation itself carries little to no meaning in 2020, particularly when coming from an SJW.

Fortunately, the Internet is forever, and Google has cached that show for your convenience:

Karma is a bitch.  One wonders is Tyler is contemplating how he has now been subject to the same kind of treatment that he gave Rebel Force Radio (RFR).  But probably not, given that all SJWs are universally ineducable.

But one has to wonder, was Tyler given work with Lucasfilm as a reward for his “activism” against Rebel Force Radio?

 

 

Lucasfilm Partnership Specialist Accused Of Sexual Assault

Tyler Westhause is a Lucasfilm Partnership Specialist with EA according to his Instagram profile:

His LinkedIn page offers more details on his relationship with Lucasfilm and EA.

His Facebook page also appears to be currently down.  Why?  Well, it appears that Tyler is currently at the epicenter of a brewing controversy.  A former significant other is now accusing Tyler of sexual assault.

Others have contacted Mitch Dyer, but so far, Mitch has not issued any statement to my knowledge.

Bad Robot Wants To Dismantle JJ Abrams

ABRAMS

Hypocrisy incarnate.

Bad Robot, the company that produced The Force Awakens and The Rise of Skywalker, recently tweeted out the following absurd virtue signal.

BadRobot

 

This is an actual document produced by Bad Robot, and presumably not satire.

BadRobot2

Here’s the Table of Contents.  Perhaps these brainiacs ought to add the word “glossary” to their vocabulary.

BadRobot3

Most of it consists of links to worthless fringe left articles filled with the kind of garbage knowledge that they feed kids at university.  But this is particularly interesting:

BadRobot4

No.  We are not, as a country, grappling with the result of hundreds of years of systemic racism and state-sanctioned violence against black people.  Rather, what we are grappling with instead, is hundreds of years of systemic racism and state-sanctioned violence against black people from the Democratic Party, not as a country.  You can read all about that here.  And yes, that fully takes into account The Great Southern Strategy Switcheroo Myth.

But let’s go ahead and acknowledge history anyway.  JJ Abram’s history.  The white guy who demands an end to white comfort from the comfort of his own Palisades mansion.

This guy, who boldly stated to Metro:

Have you been doing more at Bad Robot to help solve this issue?

“Very much so. To see that women and people of color have been so systematically marginalized in the process of just being considered for jobs, let alone the hiring process. Many times they wouldn’t even been on the list for potential hiring.”

“One of the things that Katie, my wife, and I did at Bad Robot is start a process where our agency was asked to only give us lists that only represent the makeup of the country so we could see people who typically would not be there. Whether that’s people or women of color.”

“And it was fascinating how that began to change the conversation. It has been very important to us at Bad Robot, and something that I don’t feel remotely deserving of an award for.”

“Because I feel that on a fundamental humanistic level it is simply fair. And also on a business level it is simply smart for business. It is a benefit everyway that you look at it.”

And yet, he wasn’t the change he wanted to see.  He never stepped aside from The Rise Of Skywalker to let a woman of color replace his own bleach white ass.

After all, JJ Abrams is the white guy who made his leading black character a mop wielding janitor, a throwback to tokenism and minstrelsy.

star-wars-aor-finn-1-3

JJ Abrams is the white guy that put out a poster to appease the racist communists in China.

BLM2

So Bad Robot, if you really want to fight white supremacy, then you need to start cleaning out your own house first, and fire JJ Abrams.  Let’s be ultra crystal clear on that fact.
