Remember the show Northern Exposure? It was a great show, very quirky and entertaining. But the female lead on the show, Janine Turner, has since become a Victoria Jackson-level simpleton. She tours Tea Party rallies gibbering endlessly about things she knows nothing about. In an interview on Fox, she took issue with an analysis of the racial undertones of Darth Vader, saying it’s in the Bible and that even discussing it is responsible for “killing more Americans.”
Over the weekend, MSNBC host Melissa Harris Perry had suggested that there was a racial component to Darth Vader’s character because he was dressed in black and voiced by a black man. But after the character turned away from the Dark Side, Darth Vader was revealed to be a white man.
Turner responded to Harris Perry on Monday by warning that “political correctness is going to be responsible for killing more Americans.”
“Regarding Darth Vader, please!” she exclaimed. “The Bible talks darkness and light. This is about evil and good. Darkness and light.”
“This doesn’t have anything to do with anything else, this goes back to biblical times,” she continued. “It’s been discussed in the Bible, Jesus talks about it. It’s about darkness and light, evil and good.”
Turner pointed out that it was “always” that way in the movies: “Evil people come up on the black horses, the good people come up on the white horses. I mean, you know, this is darkness and evil.”
Which would explain why the stormtroopers are all white? Obvious dimwit is obvious. And then she went on at some length about how the Constitution allows the states to come together and deal with immigration and overrule the federal government. This apparently has something to do with Article 1, Section 10, which actually forbids the states from taking such authority:
No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility.
This is why people should not speak publicly about subjects they are completely ignorant of.
