Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #106 - Star Wars Boycott

Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #106 - Star Wars Boycott

Hi Mom,

Here we are again in a continuing series of things you don't really care about, but you will listen always listen politely because you love me.

The same day the new trailer for Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens plays on Monday Football (see below) some people (they are called white supremacists and racists in the links below) call for a boycott of the new film, due December 18th, because it's not white enough and thus not wholesome. One Twitter message asked if any of us would like our daughters "breeding" with black storm troopers and assumed the answer would be "no." There was a lot more hateful crap that has the Internet all in a titter. The Twitter is in a titter.


But then these "asshats" get A LOT OF ATTENTION with their base villainy. For some people, negative attention is the only attention that they know and acknowledge. It's all they have ever received and all they have ever given. They're bitter and sad. And yes, I am making tons of assumptions because like most of the Internet, I am hurt and upset.

AND YET, hordes of Star Wars loving Internet junkies are ripe for the plucking and jibbing. Easy pickings, as they say. Such easy targets, they're not even as hard to hit as blasting womp rats with a T-16 back home (as in "I used to bullseye womp rats in my T-16 back home; they're not much bigger than two meters." - Luke, Star Wars Episode IV).

There's a ridiculous amount of hate directed toward so called SJWs or Social Justice Warriors, but given what people who villify SJWs believe. I am happy to bunk with SJWs.

I learned a long time ago to IGNORE idiots.

This ignoring was so much easier to do before the Internet, but then, there is a power off button on most devices, which I hear achieves the same effect. And power off is what I am doing for the night, Mom. I am tired.

The movie preview/trailer is wicked good.

Here's some "light" (maybe light saber)  reading. Heh.

White supremacists call for Star Wars boycott because imaginary brown people

SALON.COM - Racists threaten to boycott “Star Wars VII” because it promotes “white genocide,” apparently

#BoycottStarWarsVII: People Boycott The Force Awakens Because It Promotes “White Genocide”


Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.

Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.
