Mark Hamill Scolds Mike Lee For Using ‘Star Wars’ Images To Slam Green New Deal
Republican Senator of Utah, Mike Lee, might have brought an air of silliness to the floor while explaining the ridiculousness of the Green New Deal, but you have to admit his ‘dad humor’ style explanation makes just as much sense of eliminating aircraft travel. So it would be fair to say he met fire with fire.
Lee used images from Star Wars and Aquaman as proposed alternative forms of travel in a lighthearted display of frustration. Since the Deal would limit if not halt mass travel, Lee asks ‘then how’ and offers a few comical suggestions of his own.
Star Wars star, turned leftist, Mike Hamill didn’t find Lee’s mockery of the Green New Deal too funny. Instead of recognizing the parodies in Lee’s theories, Hamill virtually scoffed at all Republicans and took Lee’s display of silly imagery as serious debate.
Can’t take a joke, eh? Typical.
“I was foolish to think this was photoshopped. Had I recognized that this guy was a Republican, I would have instantly realized this was his argument against Global Warming,” Hamill tweeted, slamming Lee and completely missing the jest.
Hamill continued: “I did see that crap. Don’t worry about it! I’m using an oversized photo of @SenMikeLee as a prop to push my #MAGA (#MoronsAlwaysGaslightAmericans) #TrustTheScientists agenda. #ClimateChange.”
That Mark Hamill would blast a Republican senator for rightly mocking the Green New Deal is no surprise, considering he has shown himself to be a radical leftist on a variety of issues.
While Hamill may not appreciate Mike Lee’s actions on the Senate floor, few can deny that the conservative senator from Utah took the internet by storm this week with a hilarious takedown on the absurdity of Ocasio-Cortez’s proposal. His use of “Star Wars” imagery pertained to the Green New Deal’s call for banning airplanes, saying that Tauntauns could be used for winter travel in places like Alaska:
“To illustrate, let me highlight two of the most prominent goals produced by the plan’s authors. Goal number one: the Green New Deal calls essentially for the elimination of airplanes. Now this might seem merely ambitious to politicians who represent densely-populated northeastern United States. But how’s it supposed to work for our fellow citizens who don’t live somewhere between Washington D.C. and Boston? In a future without air travel, how are we supposed to get around the vast expanses of say, Alaska during the winter? Well, I’ll tell you how: tauntauns, Mr. President, is a beloved species of repti-mammals native to the ice planet of Hoth. Now, well, perhaps not as efficient as airplanes or as snowmobiles, these hairy bipedaled species of space lizards offer their own unique benefits. Not only are tauntauns carbon-neutral, but according to a report a long time ago and issued far, far away, they may even be fully recycleable and usable for their warmth, especially on a cold night.”
