Elijah Lovejoy Alert #3

Yet another example of cancel culture. Actress Gina Carano, who starred in Disney’s “Mandalorian,” has been fired by Disney because she committed the unspeakable crime of expressing opinions that do not agree with those of the woke cultural elites. Apparently, Carano is concerned that ruining people’s reputations, careers, and lives because of the political views they hold is not dis-similar to what the Nazis did in Germany in creating an anti-Semitic culture that allowed them to carry out the Holocaust.

Carano wrote in one tweet: “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?”

On the surface, this actually reads like a pro-Jewish tweet. But, if you read it that way, it’s only because you are uninitiated in the nuances of cancel culture that reads everything that mentions Jews and supports the free exchange of ideas as anti-Semitic. So, condemning anti-Semitism in a tweet that supports free speech is actually anti-Semitic. Anyway, that’s what Carano’s bosses at Disney accused her of – anti-Semitism.

Carano has endured with strength and a straight spine the onslaught of rebukes and insults directed toward her for her refusal to kow-tow to the anti-police demands of BLM, for deciding not to put her pronouns on her twitter bio (because, ‘natch, that means she’s transphobic), expressing her views on the presidential election, and not having confidence in the efficacy of lockdowns. All of this means, of course, that she does not qualify as sufficiently woke to work in Hollywood.

Disney is demonstrating amazing hypocrisy in their firing of Carano because of her political views, because Disney has been receiving backlash, though not nearly enough, for their decision to film the movie “Mulan” in Chinese regions where genocide and forced abortions are carried out and where Muslim Uyghurs are held in concentration camps. At the end of the film, Disney thanked those agencies of the Chinese Communist Party that are carrying out these human rights abuses for their cooperation and assistance in making their movie. So, Disney has no trouble filming in a country with a horrendous human rights record and working with those agencies committing these human rights abuses, but it cannot imagine working with an actress who expresses support for free speech and disagrees with the elitist party line.

Here’s hoping that Gina Carano doesn’t back down, and that someone in the entertainment industry with some measure of integrity will employ her; though it’s looking increasingly like those someones are few and far between in Hollywood.

Be Christ for all. Bring Christ to all. See Christ in all.
