In my opinion, Cara Dune was one of the coolest characters in the Star Wars TV series, “The Mandalorian.” Her fierce determination, unique combat skills, and mysteriously intriguing backstory all combined to make her an instant fan favorite. Met with critical acclaim, Dune was considered by many to be a feminist figure, which, in the era of Star Wars inclusivity, is an absolute must-have. 

But Gina Carano, the actress who portrayed the popular character, has been a massive pain in the neck for Star Wars and it’s parent company, Disney. After a controversial history of “offensive” – which really just means “conservative” – social media posts on subjects such as gender pronouns, wearing masks, and voter fraud in the 2020 election, Carano was recently fired from Disney after she compared the hatred of Jews in Nazi Germany to the way in which people in America are hated for their political views.

“‘Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors…even by children,” she said in the now-deleted post.

“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?”

Now, perhaps the comparison is exaggerated, but did it really warrant firing Carano? 

It’s worth noting that dozens of other celebrities have similarly drawn exaggerated parallels between Nazi Germany and America (the only difference being that their assertions have almost always made some critical jab at Donald Trump or conservatives). How many of those celebrities were “cancelled” for their words? 

Amazingly, one of those celebrities is actually Carano’s “The Mandalorian” co-star, Pedro Pascal, who played the show’s title character. Pascal, a liberal, has also equated Germany to America in a number of social media posts. One post compared a picture of Jews in a concentration camp to a picture of immigrants in cages, while another one likened Trump supporters to Nazis.

Of course, Disney never condemned Pascal. And he certainly wasn’t fired. 

So why was Carano fired?

Clearly, the problem isn’t merely what Carano said, but who Carano is. She’s a conservative. And the woke mob felt threatened by a strong conservative woman who actually had the audacity to express her political beliefs. She broke the sacred rules of political correctness, and cancel culture vowed to make her pay.  

That’s fair, right? After all, this is a free country. Disney is free to fire whomever they choose.

But let’s look at the facts one more time: Pascal compares modern day America to Nazi Germany. Carano also compares modern day America to Nazi Germany. Pascal keeps his job. Carano loses hers.

In other words, a bunch of hypersensitive Leftists just ruined the career of a strong female role model for doing something her male co-star got away with.     

Where’s the feminist outrage? Where’s the backlash?

If Carano was a radical Leftist, firing her for her “controversial” political beliefs almost certainly would’ve been labeled “sexist” and “misogynistic.” Apparently, however, it is impossible to be bigoted against a conservative woman – at least, that’s what the Left seems to think. 

Leftists are more than happy to debate the gender wage gap, dismantle the male hierarchy, and ensure that female directors win just as many Academy Awards as do male directors. But, of course, that all means nothing if women are spurned simply for expressing unpopular opinions. So much for empowering women.

At the end of the day, Disney sent a powerful message to the hundreds of girls who looked up to Cara Dune. “You can be whoever you want to be,” promised Disney. “Unless, of course, you’re a conservative; In that case, you should be ostracized, cancelled, and fired.” 

That’s Disney for you.
