mark-hamill-dont-panic-vote

Someone needs to tell Mark Hamill that the internet is forever. After news broke yesterday that FBI Director James Comey was reopening the agency’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server, “Luke Skywalker” tried to play a Jedi Mind Trick with his 1.87 million followers.

“Don’t panic- VOTE!” he wrote, as if that was actually an appropriate response to the news.

Here is an embarrassing truth: Mr. Hamill wants Americans to vote early for a woman who is under an active FBI investigation. Does that sound like something a Jedi wold do? Tsk, tsk.

When principled men and women started pointing out the absurdity of Mr. Hamill’s advice, before long the tweet was deleted.

The problem for Mark is this — guys like me will go deep into the Memory Hole with a digital spelunking helmet on and pull that sucker out — no matter how long it takes.

Mark Hamill knew that it looked really bad to tell people to ignore the implications of voting for someone who could be indicted by the FBI, so he deleted the evidence. He doesn’t ever want to come across like a blind ideologue, because once that happens he begins to lose influence. He needs you to believe that he is just a “swell” guy like you — when the truth is far different.

Here is a truth bomb for Mark Hamill: He is the type of partisan hack who dehumanized Mitt Romney in 2012 and now wonders why Donald Trump is popular with millions of voters. 

Here is what “Luke” said in July 2012:

“You look at Romney and I’m sure he’s a nice guy, but he’s like The Thing. He only imitates human behavior; he’s not actually human himself. Do you know he had lemonade on the campaign trail and he said ‘Lemon … wet … good.’ Gwwaaaahaha!”

When even decent candidates are dehumanized and mocked by cultural influencers, it is only a matter of time before a man like Donald Trump is embraced.

  • Mitt Romney was tarred as the Batman villain “Bane” for his work at Bain Capital.
  • Mitt Romney was framed as a guy who didn’t care if women got cancer and an architect of the so-called “war on women.”
  • Mitt Romney’s running mate — another good man — was portrayed as someone who would literally push his own grandmother over a cliff.

Guys like Mark Hamill treat morally upstanding men like punching bags, but Donald Trump is not a punching bag. He is a lot of things that I do not agree with … but he is certainly not a pushover. And instead of admitting the role that he played in bringing about our current political and cultural wasteland, Mr. Hamill tells his Twitter followers to vote — as soon as possible — for a woman with a perpetual cloud of corruption over her head.

Mark Hamill may play a Jedi on the big screen, but in reality he is filled with hate and anger. When it becomes obvious for all the world to see, he tries to cover it up with the ‘delete’ button.

Unfortunately for Mark, the internet is forever.

  1. I’m really torn. On the one hand, I’ve really enjoyed watching Hamill interact with Star Wars fans – he seems to actually really care about the audience, unlike his other costars (perhaps because his career isn’t as strong, perhaps because of who he is). But his comments about Romney and Romney voters dehumanize everyone involved – very disappointing.

      There are many factors that came into play in terms of making “nominee Trump” a reality, and I honestly believe guys like Mark Hamill in Hollywood played a role. They basically slimed John McCain and Mitt Romney as evil men, and in both cases the candidates tried to take “the high road.” Republicans who take “the high road” with Democrats are rewarded with an entire week of “binders full of women” jokes, “Bane” memes, and stories about Romney killing Big Bird and being a bully in high school.

      Voters got sick and tired of Republicans who let themselves get pushed around by Hollywood and the mainstream media, and the result is Donald Trump.

    1. “A Hollywood elitist is liberal? Color me shocked…. okay, who am I kidding! LOL!!”

      The funny thing is that I wasn’t even going to do up a post on Mark Hamill until he deleted the tweet. Once he tried to go the whole Memory Hole route, then it was time for a post. These guys regularly say really stupid or mean stuff, but then they delete it and pretend like it never happened. Meanwhile, if a political opponent gaffes then they are all over it.

  2. Heh. A feminist “acquaintance” told me some months ago that Hollywood has since come a long way from the deranged era that destroyed Roscoe Arbuckle’s career, lecturing me how I was “living under a rock” for thinking things are just as bad now as they were then. I simply replied, “spoken like a true member of the bubbleheaded protected class.”

      You don’t even need to be charged with an actual crime to have people destroy your career; you just need to be charged with a mind crime. That’s why Anthony Mackie reversed course real quick after showing “blink-and-you-missed-it” support for Donald Trump.

      Meanwhile, no one bats an eyelash that a writer at a well-known magazine casually said Mackie looked like a guy who wants to “get called a n****r.”

  3. Exactly. It’s almost amazing how so little (if any) has actually improved throughout Hollywood’s 90 plus years of corrupt existence. What they deem “acceptable targets” simply changes depending on the era, but the fundamental “principles” remain the same, disgusting pile of holier-than-thou hypocrisy. Sad thing is, at least half the population always seem to be composed of brain-dead sheep, ready to be spoon-fed by their daily dose of bullcrap.

  4. I don’t know. I think instant social media and politics can bring out the worst in people.

    The really funny thing is that, according to the paper I learned the details from, the reason that the investigation is being reopened is because of the Anthony Weiner case. His soon-to-be-ex-wife works for Clinton, so, understandably there were work-related emails on the couple’s computers, which may or may not be relevant to the original case. As of yet, there has been verdict of whether the new emails have evidence that would change the original verdict or not.

    In other words, everyone is assuming innocence or guilt without even knowing what the new evidence says. Frankly, I don’t see any reason to get worked up until the we actually know what was in the new emails.

    (I tried looking this case up on a fact check website. It seems too new to have anything at the moment.)

    1. “In other words, everyone is assuming innocence or guilt without even knowing what the new evidence says. Frankly, I don’t see any reason to get worked up until the we actually know what was in the new emails.”

      You should already be “worked up” with the fact that she was not prosecuted in July. If you’re not, then you are either a.) a partisan Democrat, or b.) still somehow ignorant of the details of the case.

      She literally ran a secret email server out of the basement in her home as the secretary of state. The nation’s most sensitive intelligence was run through said server to circumvent FOIA requests, and when the FBI finally demanded the evidence she literally deleted emails and used “Bleach Bit” on the servers. Then, her husband literally met with the Attorney General on a plane — in private in an unscheduled meeting that was only found out by the press by accident — days before the “no prosecution” decision was announced.

      Anyone — I repeat, anyone — who knows anything about security clearances knows that Hillary Clinton should be in an orange jumpsuit. They may not admit it for political reasons, but that is the truth.

      “(I tried looking this case up on a fact check website. It seems too new to have anything at the moment.)”

      Let me clue you in on something, Weblurker — “Fact Checker” websites are almost exclusively a sham. They are just people who call themselves “Fact Checkers” so guys like you will believe they’re actually objective when, in reality, they are not. They have no more authority than any other source that looks at evidence and gives an opinion. You have to do more research than just going to a “Fact Checker” because they often cherry pick data. Their standards change on a regular basis depending on who they’re checking.

    2. “Let me clue you in on something, Weblurker — “Fact Checker” websites are almost exclusively a sham.”

      Thank you for saying that, I always get frustrated when people try to use sites such as the ones mentioned as “fact”.
      They are not much more than opinion sites.

    3. Yeah…she pretty much broke the law in the worst possible way.

      In any era other than this one, she’s prosecuted.

      Every website, news organization and major institution other than the ‘right-wing’ and ‘libertarian’ focused organizations are running interference or shamelessly playing down the level of criminality involved.

      It is unprecedented in american history. Nixon resigned for less. Many prominent politicians have stepped down in dishonor for less than this. This is bad, and the only reason people think it’s not as bad as it obviously is, is because they are listening to the interference or they simply can’t face the reality that they are supporting someone that dirty.

      In front of the entire country, James Comey stated that Hillary has committed several extreme violations of National Security protocols. Hillary and her team then blatantly proceeded to cover it up. A cover up of this magnitude by anyone else could face 20 years in prison for the violation and obstruction…if not more. Comey then said they would not prosecute.

      To protect his honor and the honor of his country, Nixon resigned because some folks that worked for him broke into a building over an election and he tried to cover it up. He’s still widely hated for the initial lie, and no one on the left gives him credit for resigning….those people are about to vote this woman into office, who feels no honor at all, nor feeling for the office that she is running for. These are not honorable people.

      People are scared…most people who understand the structure of a lawful society understand that if the law is undermined, than the fabric of society can come apart. The only thing that protects the idea of law and order is our adherence to it, and the conduct of our leaders. By refusing to react to her revealed misconduct appropriately, she causes great damage to the trust in our government, which is already endangered. The FBI causes even greater damage by not pursuing the case.

      Nothing that is ‘new’ matters. It should already be done. If the FBI has found something ‘new’ they have already failed in their duty…much more importantly, Hillary has failed her duty, and those that support her don’t care.
