Oh I'm a big SF Debris fan. I know that we have a bit more evidence for the Nixon parallels being intentional on GL's part. . . but even then it's not a 1 to 1 comparison. And when it comes to the prequels it could easily be argued as a send up of the Roman Empire or Nazi Germany with the whole "elected individual taking power" schtick. It's more the other stuff I find to be a stretch. Other than "The First Order is the neo Empire, and the Empire was Nazis", on what basis is the FO "the alt right"? They're certainly facist, but I don't seem to recall any scenes of Kylo Ren carrying a tiki torch. There's nothing about immigration or the FO being racist in the movies. If anything the FO is more inclusive than the Empire, since their boss is an alien, and we've seen women in their ranks. The whole "Kylo Ren is a school shooter" thing is just silly. He basically did the exact same thing as Anakin, at about the same age, (in fact Anakin killed MORE people, including children) but because Kylo wears all black and people make jokes that he's emo, it's biting political satire apparently. The other stuff like comparing the FO to North Korea or Russia, I don't think we have enough information about the FO to make a conclusion yet. 1) No he isn't, he laughs at Rey's attempts to fight him, and seems more concerned with finding Luke Skywalker. 2) How is this any different from all the other times in the OT that a woman faced off against the Empire? 3) Snoke is an alien. 4) How does Phasma fit into this stretched analogy? I think there's a definite difference between, say, pointing out how Star Wars may parallel historical cases of dictators seizing power and underdog guerillas winning, vs " Character X is a woman, so she represents all women everywhere, and Character Y is not only Neo Nazis, but symbolizes discrimination in Hollywood blah blah blah " I know some people won't agree, will think some of the comparisons I've made are similar, but I think there's a big difference between pointing out historical similarities, and saying characters are symbols for big complex ideas.
