No, it's not spam text. Matthew in Beirut reprints the subtitles of a pirated Chinese DVD of Revenge of the Sith, available in English on the DVD via remarkably poor quality Machine Translation. The title becomes "The Backstroke of the West", and it gets better from there.

Other favorites:

"He big in nothing / important in good elephant"
"I hope that these dreamses really can't become"
"Send these troopseses only"
"I was just made by the Presbyterian Church"
    (= Jedi Council)
"Ratio tile, the wish power are together with you"   (="Obi Wan, may the Force be with you")
