The Young Turks ran a video last night about conservatives writing that Star Wars: The Last Jedi is being ruined by “social justice warriors.” I think the notion is rather absurd but as someone that has had their podcast reviews messed with by conservatives proclaiming me “social justice warrior,” a “libtard,” a “snowflake,” and even the world’s oldest “millennial.” The discussion covers the tampering that occurs with those that have a social agenda.

The irony is that the people often attacking Star Wars for being socially conscious (it always has been) are using some strange mental blocking to completely misunderstand the saga and the roots from in which it came. Anyway, I found the video’s discussion interesting. Feel free to respectfully discuss below.
