    Gina Carano and Disney Backlash

    So if you haven't heard, Gina was fired and her agent walked out on her over a tweet where she expressed how the manipulation in news and politics and the general culture is comparable to the crap Hitler did during WWII with dividing people. She is not wrong. In fact, I believe a lot of the manipulation and dividing of people is a strategy adopted from Hitler's work by the mainstream media to control us.

    I guess cancel Disney + or something along those lines was trending on Twitter as well. What makes me mad is very few actors or actresses are standing up for her. It is BS that this happened. I don't even watch the Mandalorian and this makes me mad.

    I've never seen The Mandalorian and never had much interest in seeing it. After The Last Jedi, I avoided Disney Star Wars since most of it is bland, boring crap. The only good thing that came out of Disney Star Wars is Jedi Fallen Order, which is a pretty fun game but even then, it pales in comparison to it's contemporaries like Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy. With that being said, Gina being fired just goes to show that they're hypocrites claiming they stand for women and inclusion but when said woman doesn't have the "right" opinion or make a joke that the oversensitive nancies can't handle (Having beep/boop in your twitter bio as a lighthearted jab at preferred pronouns? Jesus no!), then you'll be dropped like a bag of hammer. I'll agree that the nazi comparisons were melodramatic. The world had other tyrannical regimes you know! But still, that's no reason to give her the boot, especially since other hollywood celebreties say crazy and stupid shit all the time.

    The sad thing the whole #canceldisney+ crap isn't going to do a damn thing and Disney will continue to make bank because of the Disney/Star Wars brands have millions of folks who blindly cheer and gobble up whatever they crap out. They could literally release live footage of people fucking the corpses of dead children and the Eric Butts of the world will cry, cheer, and throw their money at them just because of the brand. Another part of the fanbase is claiming that there are people fighting for Gina on the inside when they have no proof at all believe that shit because a brief scene of CGI Luke Skywalker swinging his lightsaber for 5 minutes somehow gives them hope that there is someone at Disney or Lucasfilm that gives 2 shits about them. Meanwhile, I'll be over here saddened that, despite all the businesses shutting down for good due to covid that somehow Disney continues to keep on trucking.

    This is what Star Wars has become. They should complete their transition and call it Soy Wars so we can all be done with it. Most of the youtubers I watch have been going on & on about this Gina person for days and it's so tiresome.

    I guess I'm on her side in this whole thing, but anybody involved with Star Wars is a loser regardless. I respect her take on the media & I think conservatives shouldn't be barred from Hollywood (it'd probably make the whole place a lot less nasty) however I'd prefer that the industry industry burn to the ground instead. The celebrity effect involved with live-action or having your likeness in a film/TV series corrupts people. If Gina really does have a good head on her shoulders she will distance herself from film-making altogether.

    She is working with Daily Wire and starring in and producing her own movie. So much for that. lol

    I think the issue of Hollywood is the culture that surrounds it, not so much being in movies. But I get what you are saying. And it seems like so many people felt obligated to keep enjoying Star Wars even though they secretly hated what they did to it. I mean it is nothing but woke propaganda from what I heard. I was never a fan of the franchise though.

    I agree with what you have all said in that she probably shouldn't have been fired for that, and that with the current culture it's an unfortunate consequence.

    However I heard last time this happened Disney wanted to fire her and Jon Favreau backed her but warned her in person not to do it again. So if she valued her job maybe she was a little silly for posting. Just putting it out there.

    Ah, this story. The main reason I'm not subscribed to Disney+ is that the programming doesn't really appeal to me. I'd only been subscribed to Netflix for quite some time because my nephew and niece enjoy it. Prime Video is okay and I'm stuck with it either way because I've been subscribed to Prime since it launched here in 2007. It's a service I make full use of. From my own experiences Prime Video doesn't have nearly as much political bias in its shows.

    Disney were looking for a reason to fire Gina. She voiced her opinion on something and gave them that reason. They do not like conservatives, but even if they did Disney+ simply isn't a good deal to me anyway. I wouldn't get too riled up over this stuff. We've seen it all before.

    I have Prime as well and seldom watch anything on there but when I do, you are right, they tend to just allow free creative thought with their stuff. It doesn't really push any kind of modern idea or anything. I am glad at least some new shows are this way. Not everything needs to be "you won't like this if you're conservative haha!". So gross.
