Conservatives are fighting back in the world of cancel culture after a Disney owned production company announced they were firing conservative actress Gina Carano following some posts which sensitive leftists found offensive.
One post, which was a screenshot of someone else’s post that she uploaded to her own account, compared the current divisive political climate in the U.S. to events that took place in Nazi Germany, which critics claimed was her equating Republicans with Jews in Nazi Germany.
“Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future,” Lucasfilm, a production company owned by Disney, said in a statement cementing that free speech is dead if you’re a conservative. “Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”
Disney’s firing of Carano sparked instant widespread backlash online with “#CancelDisneyPlus” rocketing to the very top of Twitter’s trending. Carano was one of the stars on Disney+’s “The Mandalorian.”
Critics of the firing noted that Disney rehired a director that had been fired over disturbing sexually explicit tweets, Disney’s business dealings in communist China, and other controversies that the company has faced in recent years.
“Gina Carano’s post made the point that mass violence starts with hatred for your neighbor,” Daily Caller editor Katrina Haydon wrote. “This is not only uncontroversially true but also one perspective of the commandment to love your neighbor. That idea is not a call to empty niceness. It’s how you prevent suffering.”
“The point that Gina Carano’s post made isn’t even a ‘wild take,’ and she certainly isn’t the first person to get cancelled for viewpoints that differ from the woke mob,” Daily Caller reporter Shelby Talcott added. “What a dangerous, sad era to live in — where expressing a particular view could cost you your livelihood.”
Human Events Managing Editor Ian Miles Cheong brought up that Disney in the past rehired James Gunn after the company fired him over sexually explicit social media posts, including posts that mentioned children.
“Disney canceled Gina Carano apparently because of a social media post where she highlighted the dangers of dehumanizing others, but they rehired someone who made numerous disturbing remarks about rape and pedophilia,” Cheong wrote. “Just so you know, this is where Disney stands on morality.”
“As long as Disney caters to China’s human rights abuses and literal concentration camps for $$$, pretty much any excuse they use to fire an actor over offensive social media posts is beyond ridiculous. It’s that simple,” Political commentator Stephen Miller tweeted. “And everyone retweeting this in agreement will still subscribe to Disney+ You’re also the problem.”
Miller later tweeted out a photo of Uyghurs that were locked up in Chinese concentration camps.
“Disney was okay with profiting off China’s human rights abuses but fired @ginacarano, who was badass on Mando, at the behest of a woke social media mob because our cultural and corporate elites are pieces of shit and deserve your absolute contempt,” Daily Caller social media editor Greg Price wrote.
“You can be an genuinely cool person like Gina Carano or Chris Pratt, but the woke mob demands you put your pronouns in your bio or they’ll come for your head and corporate America will go along with it because they suck.”
“If Gina Carano is legitimately fired, it does nothing but confirm the obvious landscape of culture and entertainment. Stop with this ‘both sides are the same’ bulls**t, you culturally inept jackass,” political commentator Eric July tweeted. “These leftist crackheads have the control and demand absolute allegiance.”
“The blacklisting of Gina Carano is proof that the left views anyone who dissents as people who must be destroyed,” political commentator Mike Cernovich tweeted. “They hate you. Don’t live in denial or pretend otherwise. Stop trying to be friends or debate them. They want you in gulags. Get your mind in the f***ing game!”
