“I’ve fought in the ring and I do have hot blood. Um, but it’s usually hot blood when it deals with people being bullied. I don’t have a problem power I have a huge problem with abuse of power.”
Carano became the center of a media and social media firestorm after posting an image to Instagram which depicted a Jewish woman fleeing from German Soldiers with the text,
“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?”
Shortly after, amidst bogus claims of anti-Semitism, Disney Lucasfilm fired Carano from their hit show The Mandalorian where she portrayed New Republic soldier Cara Dune.
Carano’s conservative views have been well known for quite some time and it has become known that her Instagram post was merely ‘the final straw’ as Disney had been as Gina described it: “Head hunting” her for quite some time due to her conservative leaning politics.
“So when I posted that, you know, it wasn’t something that I felt like was controversial. It was something that I thought well maybe all of us need to ask ourselves: How that happened? Because you know it’s important the post never said anything about Republicans or conservatives. It doesn’t say anything about that in there.
It’s it was more about like, you know, people tearing each other apart and I thought it would be more of a thing where, you know, bring people together I was like, “oh, this is like you know bring people together.”
How Disney Fired Gina Was Seriously Messed Up
Sometimes it isn’t just that you were fired from a job, but how you were that also tells a lot of the story. Gina told Ben Shapiro during the hour long interview,
“Just a couple of weeks ago, Lucasfilm asked an artist that they employ to erase my character and put a different character in place, and he proudly announces this on Twitter, and erases my character and puts another character in place. How I found out was that I looked on the internet…
I know there were some people who went to bat for me, but I know that they didn’t win out at the end.”
It All Started With Beep/Bop/Boop In A Twitter Bio
In September Gina Carano hit the Twitter cancel-mob’s radar by adding the ‘preferred pronouns’ Beep/Bop/Boop to her Twitter Bio. With Shapiro, Gina explored the immediate fallout and completely unreal response Disney expected from her.
“Not Apologetic Enough”
Carano struggled to work out a statement with her Disney handlers that would express what she was thinking and feeling, but it just wasn’t good enough for them.
“Because I mean we got down to this like statement within like, two words. Like almost like two words, this ridiculous thing, and they were like and they just said it was ‘not apologetic enough’.”
They Didn’t Want a “Logical Response”
“Look, you offered a logical answer to an emotional response and that’s not what they respond to” … “It only helps if you offer an emotional response to emotional response”.
“And I was like, I mean it was shocking like I want to communicate they wanted me to get and all these Lucasfilm employees are railing me on their websites. I mean one of them creative director had a GoFundMe and in the GoFundMe bio it was like, “this is because our ignorant actress”. And you know and like, it was like, ‘you’re you’ so they wanted me get on the phone with like 40 of their LGBTQ community. Not on the phone on Zoom and I felt like, you’re all these people all your employees are slandering the hell out of me right now. You think I want to get on a video where they can then film it? You know and I felt very kind of insecure about that.”
Then Gina Touched The Third Rail, Trump’s Re-election, Mail-In Voting And Voter ID
Gina expressed on Twitter some very non-controversial (noticing a trend here) opinions that many conservatives and libertarians just shrug off as common sense, but the Hollywood cancel brigade was immediately incensed by her unassailable logic. First she committed the sin of talking about mail-in ballots.
“The mail-in thing. We got an extra mail-in. Everybody I talked to got an extra mail in ballot. And so I’m like, ‘Okay, so this is my first time voting I’m gonna go in and I’m gonna take this and I’m gonna like, I’m gonna do my part so that way I can actually talk about it.’ Because everybody says you know ‘you can’t talk about it unless you vote’.
Then even worse for her long-term career prospects in the leftist commune of California, Carano dared to suggest the Voter ID requirements are the most basic step of securing an election.
“And so I agreed with them so I never talked about it and then when I went in to I was ready with my ID you know and I’ve got the and they just asked my name and they asked my address and I don’t even remember if there was a signature required or not. And we have mask over our faces and I’m ready with my ID to vote because that’s what you know… And they were like “No, no you’re fine, just go.” And I was like ‘What? You’re not gonna check this?’
“I feel like there’s a lot of outrage about this. And I don’t I think this is confusing to me as a newcomer into this and so I just um. I just thought well the experience I went through is like there was no ID, there was no cameras, it was on the beach actually. It was like this little like hut on the beach.”
They Were Coming For Her Anyway
Carano has also, taken similar stands about mask mandates that a majority of conservatives and libertarians would agree with and pointed to the hypocrisy of the California political elite dining at the French Laundry restaurant mask less during the height of the lockdown.
All of these apparent transgressions against the leftist-control culture brought Gina into Disney’s crosshairs. But her refusal to bow down to Cancel-Culture has led to her embrace by millions of supporters who brought #WeLoveGinaCarano #WeLoveCaraDune and #CancelDisneyPlus trending internationally.
While the impact on the Disney empire’s bottom line may be negligible, this has been a huge boon to DailyWire which picked up Carano to produce and star in her own film, following their debut success of Run, Hide, Fight.
Gina Carano made headlines by telling the world “They Can’t Cancel Us If We Don’t Let Them” and is currently the most popular star on IMDB. We can hope that the reign of Cancel Culture is coming to a close.
