Alt-Nazis Are Boycotting 'Rogue One' Because It's 'Feminist, Anti-White Degenerate Trash'

Reviews for the stand-alone Star Wars film, Rogue One, have not hit the Internet yet, but a number of Trump-supporters have already made up their mind about the movie, calling it “a Jew masturbation fantasy of anti-White hate,” “anti-American,” and “liberal propaganda.” Calls for boycotting the movie from white nationalist gained steam when one of the film’s writers, Chris Weitz (American Pie, About a Boy), tweeted (and later deleted), “Please note that the Empire is a white supremacist (human) organization,” while the original writer on the project, Gary Whitta, responded, “Opposed by a multi-cultural group led by brave women.”

Weitz followed it up with another tweet:

Weitz also expressed support, on Twitter, for an article from aligning the movie against white nationalism: “When I look at the Rogue One trailers, I see what I want from America. I see a multicultural group standing strong together led by a rebellious and courageous woman.”

That, in full, was enough to spark outrage among the alt-Nazis, who have decided to add Rogue One to a list of things that they’re boycotting, along with Hamilton, Starbucks, Kellogg’s, and Facts.

Jack Posobiec — a leading voice of the alt-Nazis (and promoter of the #Pizzagate conspiracy) — got it started.

This is not true, but why would that stop the alt-Nazis from suggesting it?

It took off from there.

Obama’s brother even got in on the action, which is just straight-up bizarre:

Of course, the people on Twitter who do not support a white supremacists agenda were just as vocal (and a lot more amusing) in counteracting #DumpStarWars, although that Jack fella thinks those laughing at #DumpStarWars are trolls paid for by Disney.

I don’t think any of these people were paid:

Early estimates suggest that Rogue One will open next weekend with around $130 million. Those numbers may rise now that going to see Rogue One is suddenly a political statement against bigotry. I mean, we can stand against fascism and get two hours of entertainment? What a deal!
