I don’t normally pay much attention to celebrity news. But, once in a while these stories get so wide spread that even I hear about them. The latest is the bruhaha over Gina Carano and her firing by Disney over a post she made on Instagram. The post was about people with conservative political opinions being treated like Jews in Nazi Germany. Mind you, the Jews were rounded up and killed by the millions by Nazis. People with conservative viewpoints are not being rounded up and killed by the state… yet.
Actress Gina Carano has been booted off “The Mandalorian” after she penned a social media post that compared being a Republican to being Jewish in Nazi Germany.
The former MMA fighter — who played Cara Dune in the hit Disney+ show — was also dumped by United Talent Agency (UTA), Variety reported.
“Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future,” a Lucasfilm spokesperson said in a statement Wednesday.
“Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable,” the statement continued.Page Six
I think those calling for her cancellation and Disney’s subsequent firing proved the point she was making. Before the Nazis started murdering Jews they first propagandized the people against the Jews. That in turn allowed the state to start rounding them up. She didn’t denigrate the Jews. She was criticizing the Nazis and illustrating how they accomplished what they did. The people calling her out for cancellation are useful idiots of the progressive left.
