It seems some people can’t handle others disliking Star Wars.
According to Pirates&Princesses:
If you don’t like Disney’s Star Wars sequel trilogy, that’s probably just because you’re “alt-right.”
According to Wikipedia, the “alt-right” consists of “a loosely connected far-right, white nationalist movement.”
(Wow. That’s pretty harsh. Especially if you’re not white.)
Oh, and you’re probably being brainwashed by a handful of YouTubers and websites that are an arm’s throw from “alt-right” luminaries like Steven Bannon, Milo Yiannopoulos and Alex Jones.
I know. It’s a lot to unpack. But gamers have been dealing with these smears for years, even from “reputable” news outlets like The New York Times.
So Disney’s Star Wars Sequel Trilogy was basically sabotaged by some grand right-wing conspiracy and you, dear Last Jedi detractor, are an unwitting part of it.
At least that’s what an idiotic manifesto from a website and podcast called Rewriting Ripley is postulating (archived here.)
According to the author — who is reportedly a “journalist” and game industry analyst named Katie McCort — the fan backlash against The Last Jedi is actually some grand conspiracy, with Steve Bannon at the top of a literal pyramid of… alt-rightiness?
