When you think of the Rebels fighting against the evil Empire of Star Wars, you might be quick to compare liberal Democrats as the Rebels and conservative Republicans in the role of Darth Vader, the Emperor and the rest of the Empire.
However, the Conservative website American Daily Review thinks we all have it backwards. Dr. Tony Magana suggests that it’s the Republicans who best represent the ideals of the Rebel Alliance.
Dr. Magana writes:
The 1977 classic movie, Star Wars, portrayed an epic struggle between a righteous outnumbered few (Rebel Alliance) against a much stronger dominant government (Empire). The now well known story tells how a small group of activists can effect change by adhering to their principals as a source of power and focusing their efforts on the identifiable vulnerability of their adversary. A useful analogy may be drawn to the current situation of contemporary conservative activism.
