Star Wars author Amy Richau recently took to Twitter to describe the GOP as “pro-disease” and a “death cult.”
As noted by StarWars.com, Richau is a “freelance writer and researcher.”
She also recently published her first book, Star Wars: I Love You. I Know: Lessons in Love and Friendship, earlier this year in January.
Not only did she publish her first Star Wars book, but she’s also written numerous articles for StarWars.com with the most recent published back in May titled The Galaxy Far, Far Away And Motherhood.
Recently on Twitter, Richau responded to a tweet from reporter Brett Kelman who wrote, “Tennessee Department of Health halts all vaccine outreach to kids – not just for COVID-19, but all diseases – amid pressure from GOP.”
Kelman added, “Staff ordered to remove the agency logo from any documents providing vaccine info to the public, per internal dox.”
In the linked article from the Tennessean, Kelman provided more clarity noting that “the health department will take steps to ensure it no longer sends postcards or other notices reminding teenagers to get their second dose of the coronavirus vaccines.”
He adds, “Postcards will be sent to adults, but teens will be excluded from the mailing list so the postcards are not ‘potentially interpreted as solicitation to minors.'”
In response to this tweet and article, Richau wrote, “The GOP has gone from ‘pro-life’ to pro-disease. If the GOP doesn’t want to be known as a death cult they need to stop acting like a death cult.”
Richau’s comments about the GOP come just a few short months after Disney CEO Bob Chapek claimed the company did not lean left or right.
He continued, “And we seek to have not only how we operate, but the content that we make reflective of the rich diversity of the world we live. And I think that’s a world we all should live in, in harmony and peace.”
It doesn’t appear that Amy Richau is living by the principles Bob Chapek claims Disney stands for. Her tweet shows no respect, is not decent, and is most definitely not valuing inclusion.
What do you make of Richau’s comments? Are you surprised a Star Wars author would make such claims?
