World Net Daily wonders: “Will Obama build a Death Star?”


The right-wing conspiracy theory website falls victim to Internet trolls

BY JILLIAN RAYFIELD


A columnist on the conservative website World Net Daily took a trolling petition on the White House website as a sign that President Obama is perhaps considering building a Death Star. Yes, that Death Star.

In a post called “WILL OBAMA BUILD A DEATH STAR NEXT? White House urged to construct ‘Star Wars’ space battle station,” Joe Kovacs wonders if the White House will respond to a petition on its “We The People” website calling for construction on a Death Star to begin by 2016.

“It sounds like a case of ‘May the farce be with you,’” Kovacs writes, “but at this moment, in a galaxy not far away, there is a real-life petition on a White House website pushing for the funding and construction of a Death Star like the one featured in the ‘Star Wars’ film saga.”

The petition asks the Obama Administration to secure resources and funding for the construction: “By focusing our defense resources into a space-superiority platform and weapon system such as a Death Star, the government can spur job creation in the fields of construction, engineering, space exploration, and more, and strengthen our national defense.”
