Ted Cruz brings Darth Vader to net neutrality fight and Skywalker comes out swinging!

Ted Cruz, an avid believer in the free market and opponent of net neutrality, picked a fight with some high-profile opposition over the weekend about whether or not “Star Wars” bad guy Darth Vader would support the now-defunct internet provider regulations.

And by “high-profile,” we mean none other than Vader’s “son” himself – Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill.

The brouhaha started after Hamill hammered FCC chairman Ajit Pai for posting this light-hearted video defending the Obama-era policy’s repeal.

The “Star Wars” references in the video were too much for the liberal Hamill to ignore.

“Btw-did you pay John Williams his royalty?” Hamill asked, referring to the use of the “Star Wars” score in the video, before inserting the hashtags AjitPaiFCCorpShill and AJediYouAreNOT.

Justin Trudeau not the only one gushing, European leaders call President Trump courageous

This was entirely too much for known Twitter-provocateur Sen.Ted Cruz, who fired up his Twitter lightsaber and jumped in post-haste to invoke none other than Darth Vader into the debate.

After all, wasn’t Vader the Big Government type?

Hamill swung back by criticizing Cruz’s misspelling of his name, then referred to that time Cruz’s account accidentally liked a porn video.

After a classy apology for the name-misspell, Cruz dismantled Hamill’s clumsy barbs with laser-like precision – after a Yoda quote, of course.

“Rather than insults,” Cruz tweeted, “try civil discussion of facts. Fact 1: until 2015, the FCC had NO authority over Internet. The Net grew free & unregulated. Fact 2: W/ ‘net neutrality’ the FCC declared power to regulate everything said & done on Internet. That’s really bad for freedom.”

Yeah, that’s pretty much a shot right at the heart of the Death Star right there, Senator Cruz.

Hamill later took a parting shot at Cruz while responding to liberal actor Billy Baldwin’s compliment.

April Ryan finally gets her pie, and it changes everything!

Nothing says you can’t do it in more than one tweet, Mark. Why not give it a shot?
