Lucasfilm announced popular conservative actress Gina Carano is no longer a part of “The Mandalorian” cast after the left wing Twitter mob called for her firing over social media posts in which she supposedly compared anti-conservative attitudes of the media to the experience Jews during the Holocaust.
A spokesperson with the production company said in a statement on Wednesday that Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm with “no plans for her to be in the future.”
“Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable,” the statement read.
The first one was directed against the Democrats. The popular actress shared a meme that was critical of the mask mandates by Democrat governors.
It is unclear what where the statements that Lucasfilm was referring to. The media cited several posts, neither of which seem to be “denigrating” in any way.
Carano, a former mixed martial artist, was playing the character Cara Dune in “The Mandalorian”, a series based on the “Star Wars” universe.
She also mocked the use of gender pronouns, listing “beep/bop/boop” in her social media bio. Horrible, I know.
But what probably got the most attention was a now deleted post mentioning the Holocaust. Carano shared a post that called out the dehumanization campaign against conservaties. However, there’s really nothin “denigrating” in that social media posts either.
“Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors…even by children. Because history is edited, most people today don’t realize that to get to the point where Nazi soldiers could easily round up thousands of Jews, the government first made their own neighbors hate them simply for being Jews. How is that any different from hating someone for their political views?”, wrote the post that was shared by Carano on Instagram.
It is difficult to understand why the conservative Hollywood star was fired for views that in no way minimized the events of the Holocaust. Are the attacks against her were not just cynical attempts at hurting a conservative Hollywood personality?
Leftists might have been scandalized because Carano allegedly “compared” Jewish experience in the Holocaust with the anti-conservative attitudes of the media. But that can’t be the case, as another actor in The Mandalorian did the very same thing, and he wasn’t fired. Except, of course, he used that comparison to attack conservatives.
In any case, comparing something to the Holocaust is not and should not be a crime. The Holocaust was not a unique event in history, no matter what some may want you to believe. Genocides, mass murders, both ethnic, religious and political happened all throughout human history. And yes, they all start with dehumanization and demonization.
The Twitter mob that got Gina Carano fired have once again shown that they don’t care about free speech, or respect the opinions and the freedoms of others. So maybe we should not care that much when the same thing happens to them. And it will, inevitably, happen to them.
