Darth Vader’s taskmaster Admiral Piett, promoted under choking duress during the Star Wars Trilogy, bears an uncanny resemblance to a peculiar and unlikeable figure serving the current administration.
See if you can tell them apart.
That’s Piett in the Nazi-looking uniform. Miller, rhetoric notwithstanding, dresses a different part.
But let’s go to the tapes. Here are a few samples of Piett’s lines from the film classics:
I have my orders from the Emperor himself. He has something special planned for them. We only need to keep them from escaping…
Intensify the forward batteries. I don’t want anything to get through.
No cause in real time for that last gasp. Yet.
But with the turnover we’ve seen, it’s not hard to imagine.
