Their box offices are reflecting that, before CV and now, people aren’t going back to them. You think lecturing, insulting and trying to shove propaganda down people’s throat for 12-18 months might’ve had a negative effect?

Some of the best examples of their retardedness

They specifically claim “The Jedi are inappropriate mascots for social justice.”

As for why, they immediately point to race, “They are a religious order of intergalactic police-monks, prone to (white) saviorism and toxically masculine approaches to conflict resolution (violent duels with phallic lightsabers, gaslighting by means of “Jedi mind tricks,” etc.).”

“The Jedi are also an exclusionary cult, membership to which is partly predicated on the possession of heightened psychic and physical abilities (or “Force-sensitivity”),” they add.

And this

Not only are the Jedi problematic in their minds, but they claim, “Star Wars has a problematic cultural legacy.”

They explain, “The space opera franchise has been critiqued for trafficking in injustices such as sexism, racism and ableism. Think, for example, of the so-called “Slave Leia” costume, infamous for stripping down and chaining up the movie series’ first leading woman as part of an Orientalist subplot.”

As for an Orientalist subplot, are they claiming that Jabba the Hutt is supposed to be Arab because he happens to be based on Tatooine? If so it makes no sense because that’s where Luke Skywalker was raised too! And they have the gall to accuse Star Wars of racism.

And this

Next, they point to ableism, ” The series regularly defaults onto ableist tropes, memorably in its portrayal of Darth Vader, which links the villain’s physical disability with machinic inhumanity and moral deviance, presenting his technology-assisted breathing as a sinister auditory marker of danger and doom.”

Dug the 2nd season, lot to unpack in that season. Can see why the corporate press lost their shit over it, little too close to home is my bet. How was the 3rd season? Never got around to seeing it, had 2 jobs at the time and it kinda fell off my radar.

They need to make 900 million dollars for this movie BEFORE they make a profit. Yeah, good luck with that
