Harrison Ford Defends Ender’s Game and Orson Scott Card At San Diego Comic-Con

Boycott Enders Game

“No part of the story concerns Mr Card’s theories about society in terms of gay issues or homosexual issues. I think he has a right to his opinions and has also made it clear that it was a battle that he fought and lost and would like to get on with the rest of life.” – Harrison Ford, promoting  Ender’s Game and spouting the studio spin line at San Diego’s Comic-Con.

I am ashamed of Harrison Ford.  He knows the boycott  has nothing to do with whether this particular story has anything to do with Card’s views on homosexuality and that it has to do with Lion’s Gate supporting monetarily a virulent homophobe who wants to see me and my friends killed or put into concentration camps. ”

Cards statements were not “opinions” Mr. Ford — any more than Hitler had an “opinion” about the Jews.  Mr. Card would like gays not to exist, and if they do to be criminalized and persecuted and money from Lionsgate buying the story and the percentage of the box office that comes from his producer credit has and will continue to help him continue.

I can guarantee you Harrison, if Card had said all those things about blacks and funded and worked white supremacy groups, this movie would have never been made and your multi-million dollar paycheck would not existed.

So in reply to your statement let me say a hearty FUCK YOU to you Han Solo.  If Chewbacca was here he’d smack you silly.
