Ah, the double standard strikes again.
It has almost become a hallowed American institution at this point; rules for thee, but not for me.
The media has been abuzz with what happened to Gina Carano, and the backlash that disney is facing has gained a lot of steam since then.
We as conservatives are fed up with this nonsense. It isn’t just that Gina Carano was unfairly fired for airing an opinion; it is that many Disney employees post way more inappropriate opinions.
Like when they paint Trump supporters as nazis, racist, evil…….you know, the usual spiel.
None of these employees get fired, and no one even raises an eyebrow over at Disney when these things happen.
Some of these employees are past Disney employees, and cannot be disciplined (like Jack Morrissey), but his tweets give hints as to the overall political culture at Disney.
This is what these people think of us.
Take a look:
Fox News reported:
Carano, 38, has drawn ire in the past over a handful of political statements that have irked fans, such as messages about face masks and voter fraud. Her comments this week, however, created quite the divide among social media users, with some calling for the actress' firing with the hashtag #FireGinaCarano while others ripped Disney -- parent company to Lucasfilm and the "Star Wars" franchise -- and its streaming service, Disney+.
But, the liberal Pascal, who has played the show’s title character, The Mandalorian, used the hashtag #ThisisAmerica to caption side-by-side images. The top image was said to show children confined by barbed wire in Nazi Germany circa 1944, while the bottom image was purported to be from the United States in 2018 -- although multiple reports indicated the photo actually showed Palestinian children in the West Bank years earlier. Pascal’s 2018 message came at the height of a controversy over the "zero-tolerance" immigration policy under the Trump administration at the time.
Pascal also posted a now-deleted tweet in 2020 that compared Trump supporters to Nazis, the New York Post noted.
Lucasfilm and Disney did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Bounding Into Comics, a non-political culture site had this to say:
In another follow-up he would dismiss concerns about human trafficking, which U.S. Customs and Border Protection reports that “at any give time in 2016, an estimated 40.3 million people are in modern slavery, including 24.9 million in forced labor and 15.4 million in forced marriage.”
Nanjiani wrote in response to a user who brought up human trafficking, “You and I don’t have enough common ground as people to continue this conversation. We see people and the world in fundamentally different ways. Where you see ‘human trafficking’ I see people risking everything for better lives for themselves and their families.”
Nanjiani is not the only employee of Disney who has made abhorrent statements.
Pedro Pascal, who also stars in The Mandalorian, compared supporters of President Donald Trump to Nazis.
