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.
