Whats Going On Guys This Is Ryan With Our

K outpost and today After all the UK Abrams bombshell and everything that went like that I thought it’d be fun to find out a funnier article to look at to end the day and the reason this one’s funny is because one. It contains a bunch of absurd stuff which is always funny to laugh at, but also it contains you know someone coming to the realization or maybe not coming to the realization but trying to let everyone else know that Star Wars isn’t some progressive forward-thinking piece of media like many people want to say but most normal people say no it’s it’s it’s just a story get your modern politics out of it so let’s go ahead and read this the politics of Star Wars, a galaxy far far away is hopelessly outdated pissed the rise of. failed to be woke? We might expect too much of this franchise, and that is a lot of people are a lot of people that are upset that it kind of leaned away from things happen In the last Jedi the second ray became part of a famous Star Wars Bloodline a million voice to win bully declare the new trilogy could forge a path away from privilege and nepotism felt suddenly silenced the egalitarian values of the last Jedi swept away by Emperor Palpatine just as easily as he dissolved the Senate and as the rise of Skywalker continues to make a ton of money. Despite mixed reviews, Fans of a progressive mindset are correctly echoing the sentiments of Padme Amidala. This is how Liberty dies with thunderous applause and this is by Rian Britt so I’m not sure what he who he is but that’s his name but.

Wait A Minute Should Progressives Feel Betrayed By

the seemingly conservative Pander Eanes and the rise of Skywalker Now it’s not whoa it’s a terrible movie. It’s not woke, but I wouldn’t say it’s conservative either it all depends on your point of view as many fans ball out their fists in anger because the rise of Skywalker failed to uphold the values of its Volker predecessor, the last Jedi Jesus. It’s like a parody. It’s time to unlearn what you’ve learned in the past two years. Star Wars is not woke.

Star Wars Is Not Progressive.

Star Wars is fun, but it represents centrist values for the masses and it always has yes yes that’s what’s so many people have been trying to say over the past four years spoilers ahead for rides a Skywalker. Also I might ruin Star Wars for you yeah. If you’re someone who just wants progressive politics in your media, then yeah that might ruin Star Wars for him to be clear. I think Star Wars is great I just don’t think Star Wars is as smart as we all pretend.

It Is Sometimes Im On The

side of people who are mad that the last Jedi was kind of retcon, but at the same time I’m not sure Star Wars has ever been a bastion of forward-thinking values or progressivism. George Lucas. The majority creators certainly lean left but there’s an element of populist centrism that runs through these films. If we’re expecting stars to reflect the pinnacle of progressive values, we’re certainly putting our faith in the wrong franchise here’s the proof imagine making something to cater to everyone. Imagine that populist centrism that’s what it should be the Bechdel Toss-up God.

The Famous Dialog Test Modestly Proposed

by playwright Alison Bechdel should not be that difficult to clear for any piece of fiction in the 21st century or for that matter in 1977 either yet prior to the prequels or the expanded universe Expanding universe had plenty of it the only other women with more than one line of dialogue in the entire Star Wars trilogy, who wasn’t Leia didn’t show up until Return of the Jedi Yep other than the lay out. Monmouth was the only character who isn’t gendered as a male who has more than one line of dialogue in the classic films well there’s. like a ton of characters either and it is a war just saying Star Wars, even though there are more women. In subsequent Star Wars films, it’s shocking at how hard it is to find these for these films to do with the Bechtel test simply proposed have two women have a conversation alone about something that doesn’t involve a man even with all the feminists leading characters. In the last Jedi we somehow Don’t get a scene withhold.

Oh And Leia Talk Talking That

Poe doesn’t but into and while one could argue that Poe’s arc in the last Jedi was a study in toxic masculinity. It’s still pretty clear that Rayon Rose propelling the story of Star Wars is an exception to the rule rather than the standard Yes. The reason the last Jedi feels more progressive than the other Star Wars movies is simply there are more. While this is laudable, It’s also kind of depressing. It took until 2017 for a Star Wars movie to have more than one main character who wasn’t a male that like I said it reading this is funny.

Its Getting More Frustrating Now Though

maybe it’s getting more frustrating than it is funny diversity again. Star Wars is a poor track record that seems better than it is only because of recent events prior to release of force awakens. There are a few people of color with significant roles in the six Agha films Sure You’ve got Mace Windu Jango Fett, Captain Panaka that’s all from the prequels in the original films. It’s just Lando notably Lando is the black guy who spends one whole film betraying the other white characters and then saving them. At the end, Lando betrayed them so he could save everyone that he was in.

Charge If Hes The Governor Of

Cloud City he’s in charge of this entire group of people. He betrayed them to save all those people, but some people understand that because maybe some people haven’t watched Star Wars just saying the only other black character was speaking lines in the classic trilogy the unnamed X-wing pilot who in Return of the Jedi dies a fiery death after saying she’s gotta blow. In the last four years. Star Wars has done a significantly better job, creating diverse cast rogue. One might be the best example, but it still got mostly dudes in it and gener so comes across kind of like Leia does she’s the token girl in the boys club.

Shes The Hero Of That Movie.

She’s the main character of that movie kind of like the Star Wars version of Smurfette also Jin’s mother dies a meaningless death while. Father becomes some kind of misunderstood Martyr a la Darth Vader, so when people like this say they like Star Wars, Do they really do they really because I think the answer is no you got all these things that you find wrong with the original trilogy in the prequels. Yet you say you like Star Wars. I don’t believe you speaking of Darth Vader, the most famous UK actor in all the Star Wars is without a doubt James Earl Jones supposedly are in fun fact in the original theatrical release.

He Wasnt Even Given Screen Credit Supposedly.

This was at the request of Jones, but it’s still strange okay as you know. Prior to the Empire you could have assumed Darth Vader was black which gets dicey. The voice of a famous male black actor was the personification of evil while underneath it he was just a misunderstood. White guy it’s best not to think about it too hard, but if you do it’s kind of offensive Oh my God This guy is so terrible.

This Is What Passed Off As A Joke

in chasing Amy but really what the F Star Wars Oh my God listen to this gun violence is given a pass gun violence gun violence in Star Wars okay obviously a lot of progressive actors play people who hold guns and movies. This is not a bad thing. There’s no convincing argument that gun violence in films causes violence in real life true that said if you think the story the rebels is strictly an allegory for disenfranchised folks on the left think again the idea that an armed militia operates outside of regular government kind of feeds into the fantasies of various far-right domestic terrorist groups and gun rights activists in the UK. can kind of overlook this because the Empire is so evil, but in the force awakens lays resistance. A militant heavily armed militia exists outside of a legitimate government, which they claim to protect Poe.

Even Refers To Himself As A Member Of

the Republic. In the last JEdi, which is deeply weird since the resistance was basically an illegal military junta working outside the rules of the Republic. Sure you can argue of lay ahead no choice since the first order is off when the New Republic was unwilling to confront them head on, but again the idea that ordinary folk literally take up arms against their government is something people on the far-right threaten not the left. This is insane this literally insanity. Finally The guns the Star Wars are for the most part all based on real firearms is which of what makes them cool We even got super mad with George Lucas charge the milk change the moment with Greeter shot first because that Man Han was killing in self–defense.

This Apparently Was To Woke For Everyone.

Han Solo is, according to literally all of us regardless of political leanings. The only a hero when he’s killing people in cold blood. Jesus. This is the best one guys own that healthy views about sexuality.

Luke Skywalker Kisses And Has Romantic Feelings For

his sister. He doesn’t know that it’s his sister you idiot These people Don’t watch Star Wars they read bleep cliffnotes. Rei’kas is A man who invaded her mind and knocked her out the first time They met well that’s true Padme Amidala dies in childbirth after a husband a man with a mental illness who’s worked as a government enforcer nearly chokes her to death. We don’t really even know go further than that and yes we all know Poe and Finn are a couple and the fact that they didn’t kiss but two same-sex background characters did well it’s kind of weird. They’re not a couple as much as they would like to be.

I Could Go On And You

could do your own research about how George Lucas borrowed Pro World War two villain propaganda as a piece of inspiration for the ending of a new hope or you could think really hard about the idea that Luke Skywalker’s a religious zealot who basically performs an act of terrorism because. was radicalized, but I think the points have been made in the last JEdi those who have loved Star Wars for its positive messages of friendship, hope and forgiveness. Briefly saw a moment when the franchise could become something more the notion that Rey might really be someone without a hidden past or that any old kid could use the force felt fresh and progressive. It also felt not like Star Wars that’s why the last Jedi is so reviled This however, was not really the norm and even in the last JEdi, the guy calling all the shots was a privileged white male with questionable ways of showing affection.

Yes.

Kylo Ren was the villain of the last JEdi, but he was also the character with the most agencies so even at its most progressive. A Star Wars film still gave the most agency.
