Gina Carano and her co-star Pedro Pascal both made references of today’s political divide to Nazi Germany but only one of them was fired.
Carano is a conservative and was dropped from her role on Disney’s “The Mandalorian” because of her post but a similar tweet from 2018 posted by Pascal did not land him in hot water. Pascal falls in line with the politically left much like rest of Hollywood leaving many to point out the hypocrisy.
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.
Disney has had its share of controversies including rehiring “Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn in 2019 after old tweets resurfaced showing him joking about pedophilia and rape.
Here is what some had to say about the hypocrisy:
.@Disney What is Pedro's employment/contractual status?
EQUALLY "abhorrent"! https://t.co/n6XLYmBXDe

Pedro compares conservative politics to the Holocaust and liberals don't bat an eye. Gina Carano compares liberal politics to the Holocaust and everyone dogpules her saying she's disrespectful to all Holocaust survivors.
Rules for thee, but not for me.

If Gina Corano gets fired and you don’t for the same thing, isn’t that patriarchal privilege? #DisneyIsSexist

"Kids in Cages" Was Created Under the Obama Administration
Michelle Obama and Joe Biden would like you to believe that children being separated from their family at the border is a Trump policy, this couldn’t be farther from the truth. The have been several instances now when Democrats, trying to prove their point, used photographs of children in cages to attack Trump only to find out that the pictures were taken during the Obama Administration.
As reported in USA Today:
In a 2019 interview with nonpartisan think tank The Aspen Institute, Jeh Johnson, Barack Obama’s Homeland Security secretary, told NPR’s Mary Louise Kelly that the “cages” predate the Trump administration.
“Chain-link barriers, partitions, fences, cages, whatever you want to call them were not invented on January 20, 2017,” Johnson said.
Kelly asked Johnson about a 2014 photograph of him touring an Arizona facility for migrants along with former Gov. Jan Brewer. The picture is archived on the website for the Arizona Capitol Times.
That image was also part of another social media meme accusing Michelle Obama of lying about “kids in cages” during her DNC speech. Facebook user Eulalia Maria Jimenez posted it to her page on Aug. 18. Johnson is circled in red in the image.
Johnson explained the picture was taken during a spike in unaccompanied minors crossing the southern border of the country.
“The kids are being housed in the same facilities built under the Obama administration. If you want to call them cages, call them cages. But if the left wants to call them cages, and the Democrats want to call them cages, then they have to accept the fact that they were built and funded in FY ’15, and I was there,” Homan said, according to a transcript.
The Associated Press reported in late 2019 that an unprecedented 69,550 migrant children were held in U.S. custody over that year.
But Michelle Obama’s assertion that the Trump administration tore children from their families and threw them into cages alludes to “a frequent and distorted point made widely by Democrats,” according to the AP. The facilities designed during the Obama administration to temporarily hold migrants were used for a similar purpose by President Trump, the AP also concluded.
This information has a lot of trouble reaching a Democrat audience when they are fed constant lies from main stream media.
Migrants chanting ‘Biden! Biden!’ stampede border
And so it begins…
In the wake of the presidential election, concerns over the safety of our great nation’s borders have been brought to light, as immigration is perhaps one of the most contested issues in today’s political climate.
President Trump implemented strict policies throughout the last four years to protect America, which Joe Biden is expected to loosen.
Come one, come all!
On the night of December 29, up to 400 migrants – mostly from Cuba – forced their way past Mexican immigration and over turnstiles on the Paso del Norte Bridge, seeking to force their way into El Paso, Texas.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection Mobile Field Force officers met them in riot gear and used concrete blocks to prevent the surge as many of the migrants chanted “Biden! Biden!” Many of them demanded they be let in.
But with Trump currently in office, that won’t happen.
The migrants with Biden on their minds were met with a recorded message broadcasting over speakers in both English and Spanish warning that any further trouble would be met by force, arrests and prosecution. The message blared until the crowd dispersed, Center for Immigration Studies reports.
Biden has several times promised an amnesty bill, an end to deportations and a reversal of Trump immigration policies during his first 100 days in office, a message which, according to Enrique Valenzuela – head of the Chihuahua State Council for Population and Migration – is spreading like wildfire on social media.
Migrants are expecting to be let in immediately.
“There is the expectation, there is hope and there is enthusiasm in them who believe that with the change of administration comes new measures and that they will immediately enter and there will be new conditions that will allow them to request asylum,” he said in an interview with Mexican newspaper El Sol de Parral.
This isn’t the first occasion of migrants trying to force their way in, and it certainly won’t be the last.
