No Shock That #DumpStarWars Failed
Rouge One premiered over the weekend, and to no one's surprise, the movie blew up the box office like the Death Star. Was there any doubt that it would? This is a Star Wars movie, after all. Even the prequels did well in theaters, and butt hurt fanboys pretend that those films don't real!
So it should come as no surprise that the movie did well. Or at least it shouldn't be a surprise to anyone who isn't a butt hurt neo-Nazi who tried to boycott the movie.
I'm sure most of you have heard of #DumpStarWars, a hashtag that had been spread across social media by neo-Nazis—oops! I mean the "alt-right"—in an attempt to boycott the new film.
Why did they want to boycott Star Wars? Because one of the creators claimed that the Empire was a "white supremacist" organization—in other words, Nazis.
Pro-tip: if you claim to be a Star Wars fan, yet are surprised to hear the Empire compared to "Nazis", chances are you were never a fan to begin with, because it's pretty f***ing obvious that they're supposed to be Space Nazis!
Of course, this mild "no duh!" comparison was enough to trigger every single special snowflake on the alt-right, who went onto accuse the movie of being "feminist propaganda" pushing an "anti-white agenda", with one post on InfoStormer whining that "nearly all of the major characters are non-Whites and the main character is an empowered White female."
They even spread rumors that the movie was edited at the last minute to include an anti-Trump scene. (That rumor proved to be just that!)
And so they attempted to boycott the movie, and like the Stormtroopers going up against the Ewoks, they not only failed miserably, but embarrassingly so.
Folks, I roll my eyes whenever I see feminist SJWs complain about how a movie or video game hurts their precious fee-fees, so why shouldn’t I mock alt-right losers when they do the same?
