Diversity Wars: SJW Star Wars Controversy

Diversity Wars: SJW Star Wars Controversy --- ===


Kathleen Kennedy, president of Disney-owned Lucasfilm






How Kathleen Kennedy has Turned #Lucasfilm into a Naked Mole Rat ...

Jan 8, 2018 - Kathleen Kennedy the (only one) in a black shirt ... she had been second fiddle to some of the most powerful creative men in Hollywood.

The Force Awakens was released 3 years after the sale of Lucasfilm to Disney. Things were set in motion quickly. Star Wars veteran Lawrence Kasdan worked on the script. Spielberg-esque J.J. Abrams was brought in to direct. Kennedy’s guidance was there, and the edict that film’s main protagonist be female, but Kennedy was content to set the Lucasfilm machine in motion and oversee it’s operation.

This was not the case with The Last Jedi. Episode VIII is Kathleen Kennedy’s film and she has asserted full control over the creative direction of Star Wars. More on that later.


Naked Mole Rats are an interesting species. They live in underground colonies. They are the only mammals that exhibit eusociality, (like bees and termites) meaning there is one Queen who reproduces with 1–3 males. No other males or females are allowed to breed


J.J. Abrams
Gareth Edwards
Rian Johnson
Phil Lord and Chris Miller (fired)
Colin Trevorrow (fired)
Ron Howard
Stephen Daldry (rumored)

These are all the directors so far selected by Queen Kennedy suitable to mate with and birth a Star Wars Film. What’s missing? With the exception of J.J. and Howard, experience is missing. Recently Ridley Scott commented that Star Wars movies should be created by more experienced directors.


if you don’t follow the orders of Queen Kennedy, it’s off with your head.


What else do you notice about that list of directors? No women. 6 named directors and not a single woman. Why would Kathleen Kennedy, epitome of feminism and breaking the glass ceiling in Hollywood not have hired one, two or even all female directors for her female driven Star Wars Trilogy?

Because in the Lucasfilm Mole Rat Colony, other females are not allowed to breed.

Last Jedi has Kathleen Kennedy’s fingerprints all over it. She’s a Berkley educated liberal-feminist who was groomed by Hollywood men, told she had good ideas and was given powerful positions without having to do all that much… kind of like Rey. All the men in The Last Jedi are cowards, failures, inept, or suffer from toxic masculinity. The women know better then them must save the men from their masculinity. The subtext of The Last Jedi is very deep and very post-modern. It’s a reflection of Queen Kennedy. It’s also why they had to destroy what Star Wars meant to us and why half the audience hates this film.  I call for a vote of no confidence in Kathleen Kennedy’s leadership. Help us Bob Iger, you’re our only hope. #FireKathleenKennedy

Kathleen Kennedy | Disney Star Wars is Dumb
https://disneystarwarsisdumb.wordpress.com/category/crew/kathleen-kennedy/
Apr 30, 2018 - Posts about Kathleen Kennedy written by Itchy. ... creators know that straight white menaren't the only audience they're catering to anymore.”.  So I’ve been pouring over SJW “think” pieces for several months now.  Given that SJWs mostly all think alike, there are some common themes that run through their articles.  So there’s something of genuine value to learn here, with regards to increasing the effectiveness of our arguments.

written here about the waning box office for The Last Jedi immediately after the opening weekend.  I’ve pointed out that in China, where people have no nostalgic attachment to the franchise, it was perceived as garbage.  The waning toy and merchandise sales point to further problems.  Not one SJW is able to acknowledge any of this.  They’re somehow under the impression that Star Wars is too big to fail, that it will always be around no matter what, and that it will always make money. 


3. THEY’RE UNDER THE IMPRESSION THAT THERE WERE NO FEMALE OR MINORITY CHARACTERS BEFORE THE SEQUEL TRILOGY
Time and time again they talk about diversity in the Sequel Trilogy as though it’s a brand new thing in Star Wars.  When discussing diversity in Star Wars, they almost never mention Samuel L. Jackson, or Temuera Morrison.  They rarely mention Billy Dee Williams.  This is why they stupidly call critics racists, sexists, and/or misogynists; they don’t think females or minorities have ever been in the films before 2015.  Some of the brighter ones will argue that they’re talking about a primary character.  But that betrays the fact that they haven’t really watched the films, because the films were always ensemble pieces without a singular primary character.

4. THEY TRY TO DISMISS THE BACKLASH AS A “TINY VOCAL MINORITY”
Early on, few if any of them refused to acknowledge that the backlash even existed.  But as the backlash grew louder, and they were forced to acknowledge it, they then attempted to dismiss it as a “tiny vocal minority.”  The truth is more likely that it is they, who are in the minority.  And that’s why just as of this week they’ve taken to openly attacking and admonishing backlashers.  They’e gone so far as to mischaracterize Backlashers as racists and misogynists, despite the fact that the Backlash itself is diverse.
