Don’t forget that Disney defended its decision to film a movie near concentration camps holding Muslim Uighurs.
The mob has gone after Gina Carano, who plated Cara Dune in The Mandalorian, for months over her social media posts. They won after she compared being a Republican today to Jews during the Holocaust.
Lucasfilm said Carano is “not currently employed” by them, “and there are 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,” concluded the production company.
I need to get this off my chest: Can we please (and this goes for everyone) stop making Holocaust, Hitler, and Nazi references? I know the left does it more, but the right does as well. Just stop it. Stop stop stop stop!
Carano did not lie in her post, though. I also don’t see where she denigrated “people based on their cultural and religious identities.”

As I said, the mob went after Carano in the past. They scolded her when she mocked mask-wearing and suggested voter fraud happened in the presidential election. They also criticized her when she put her pronouns as “beep/bop/boop.”
Let’s get down to the nitty-gritty, shall we?
First off, notice how the statement came from Lucasfilm? It did not come from Disney, which owns the production company.
But Disney owns Lucasfilm. Lucasfilm’s statement allows the left to muddy the waters and keep the attention off of Disney.
This was smart because Disney has a ton of skeletons in its closet. Consistency. Is that too much to ask?
Where do we begin?
How about the live-action Mulan movie? Disney filmed the movie in China’s Xinjiang province, which holds numerous concentration camps holding mostly Muslim Uighurs. That’s on top of the many human rights violations China has done and continues to do daily.
Then Disney had the nerve to thank “the public security bureau in the city of Turpan,” and, get this, the “publicity department of CPC Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomy Region Committee.”
Mulan specifically thank the publicity department of CPC Xinjiang uyghur autonomous region committee in the credits.
You know, the place where the cultural genocide is happening.

Disney even defended the choice to film near the camps.
Disney's corporate policy does not appear to care about the human rights issues affecting the #Uighurs. It seems human rights come second to the corporate policy of not upsetting China. (2/2) pic.twitter.com/3wXVQLuVOf

Oh, remember the protests in Hong Kong? Mulan star Liu Yifei supported the crackdown on those citizens by the Hong Kong police.
In July 2018, Disney fired Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn over old offensive tweets. Everyone rallied around Gunn, mainly because Mike Cernovich dug up the tweets.
Then Disney rehired Gunn in March 2019 to direct Guardians of the Galaxy 3.
Next up is Chris Pratt, the beloved star of Guardians of the Galaxy. The left has also long had its eye on him. He belongs to the Hillsong Church, “whose founder has made anti-LGBT statements.” Pratt is Christian and does not hide it.
But the left also hates “that Pratt follows several conservative commentators, politicians and organizations on social media.”
But Pratt has never once talked about his political views. Not once.DONATE
