OMG SRSLY WTF???

"The Star Wars universe is going on 40-years-old these days, but apparently the alt-right just now got the memo that the franchise’s universe is multi-cultural..."

Yup. The poor wittle Trumpflakes are apparently all miffed about Rogue One because it's, er, "anti-white" or something.

So they've invented a #DumpStarWars hashtag -- which was promptly, and humorously, co-opted by Star Wars fans and people with, y'know, an actual sense of proportion, with tweets like these:





Seriously, what is wrong with these people??

I know. I can't decide if it's hilarious, pathetic, or terrifying.

Now that these nutcase extremists are actually the ones in charge of the country, I find this insane stuff a lot more terrifying than I once did. This is just the beginning of what I fear are going to be massive attempts at censorship. The Nazism parallels become stronger every day.

And what's baffling is that this is the party that -- allegedly -- is all about going back to the basics of the Constitution. Which (hello!!) include freedom of speech and freedom of religion. I just don't get their logic.

Ah, but we all have very different understandings about what those freedoms mean. To certain groups, Trump included, "freedom of speech" doesn't mean the freedom to say things that they themselves might disagree with or find offensive (witness Trump's renewed call for imprisonment of flag-burners). Anything they disagree with is by definition dangerous propaganda and needs to be stopped -- for the safety of the country. And "freedom of religion" doesn't mean freedom for all religions, or freedom to have no religion. It means "protecting Christians," because this is a Christian country, and it's what God wants.

To a lot of people, this logic is obvious and impeccable, and they are baffled that WE can't see it.

Don't worry. If it's anything like the stupid Starbucks thing, they will just go to the movie wearing Trump tee shirts to boycott.

I think that word doesn't mean what they think it means.

I keep picturing the faces of these poor, downtrodden, "Christian" white people when they realize that their hero does not give the least bit of a damn about them after all.

I know, right? And all this bitching, despite the fact that Congress is 80 percent white, 80 percent male and 92 percent Christian. Sorry, but their complaint that they don't have a platform or a voice is f**king laughable.
