Star Wars icon Mark Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker and most recently reprised his role for The Mandalorian, recently revealed he’s bought into the Blue Anon conspiracy.
If you are unfamiliar with the Blue Anon conspiracy, Urban Dictionary describes it as thus, “A loosely organized network of Democrat voters, politicians and media personalities who spread left-wing conspiracy theories such as the Russia Hoax, Jussie Smollett hoax, Ukraine hoax, Covington Kids hoax, and Brett Kavanaugh hoax.”
It adds, “Blue Anon adherents fervently believe that right-wing extremists are going to storm Capitol Hill any day now and “remove” lawmakers from office.”
Hamill made clear he’s bought into the Blue Anon conspiracy when he took to Twitter on March 10th to share a video from California Democrat Eric Swalwall, who was reportedly connected to a Chinese spy ring involving Chinese national Christine Fang.
Hamill tweeted, “Hold them ALL accountable #KnowTheirNames”

In a follow-up tweet, he wrote again, “Hold them ALL accountable #KnowTheirNames.”
However, in this tweet he shared an image that reads, “These are the 43 traitors who voted to acquit Donald Trump. Remember their names.”
The image features 43 smaller images of duly elected Republican Senators.
The list includes Richard Shelby and Tommy Tuberville of Alabama, Dan Sullivan of Alaska, John Boozman and Tom Cotton of Arkansas, Marco Rubio and Rick Scott of Florida, Mike Crapo and Jim Risch of Idaho, Todd Young and Mike Braun of Indiana, Joni Ernst of Iowa, Jerry Moran and Roger Marshall of Kansas, Mitch McConnel and Rand Paul of Kentucky.
It also includes John Kennedy of Louisiana, Roger Wicker and Cindy Hyde-Smith from Mississippi, Roy Blunt and Josh Hawley from Missouri, Steve Daines of Montana, Deb Fischer of Nebraska, Thom Tillis of North Carolina, John Hoeven and Kevin Cramer of North Dakota, Rob Portman of Ohio, Jim Inhofe and James Lankford of Oklahoma, Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott of South Carolina.
The list concludes with John Thune and Mike Rounds of South Carolina, Marsha Blackburn and Bill Hagerty of Tennessee, John Cornyn and Ted Cruz of Texas, Mike Lee of Utah, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, and John Barrasso and Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming.
This isn’t the first time Hamill has engaged in and spread the Blue Anon conspiracy. Back in 2017 he posted to Twitter, “Focus on 2 thing: #1) Investigation of Russia’s involvement in 2016 election #2) His Tax Returns. America has a right to know.#Resistance”
Hamill also supported disgraced actor Jussie Smollett in 2019. He tweeted, “Sending love & support to Jussie Smollett after this horrific attack. Shame on us if we don’t protest & demand #JusticeForJussie!”
Smollett is facing criminal charges for lying to police that he was a victim of a hate crime.
Aside from engaging in the Blue Anon conspiracy, Hamill also engaged in a call to boycott Jimmy John’s restaurants in 2019 over a 10 year old image of the restaurant chain’s founder Jimmy John Liautaud posing next to an elephant he killed a preserve in Africa.
Hamill wrote on Twitter, “Thumbs up to a boycott of all Jimmy Johns restaurants! (with apologies for posting this obscene photo).
Liautaud had previously told the Chicago Tribune in 2015 that he doesn’t hunt big African game anymore.
He said, “I choose to hunt and I choose to fish. Everything I’ve done has been totally legal. And the meat has been eaten, if not by me than by someone I’m with. I don’t hunt big African game anymore.”
What do you make of Hamill engaging in the Blue Anon conspiracy?
