Vox Earns Mockery For Just Discovering That There Are Wars in ‘Star Wars’


starwarsVox Dot Com probably should have seen the inevitable blowback coming when it published a piece with this headline:

What they were going for was of course the argument that Rogue One was the first Star Wars film to accurately portray the horror of war (although Aunt Beru, Uncle Owen, and the people of Alderaan might disagree). But the way the headline was phrased– implying that it was some sort of secret that the Star Wars films were about, you know, wars– naturally spurred a deluge of snark and parody.

(Yes, this is U.S. Senator Ben Sasse)
