“Your action indicates that you are expressing hatred and denunciation of landowners, the bourgeoisie, imperialism, revisionists and their running dogs who exploit workers, peasants, revolutionary intellectuals and parties. Your actions suggest that your rebellion… is justified. You have my warmest and fullest support.”--Mao Zedong to the Red Guards, 1966
"In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies...in some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control."--Dr. Theodore Dalrymple
“As a young Marxist in college during the 1950s heyday of the anti-Communist crusade led by Senator Joseph McCarthy, I had more freedom to express my views in class, without fear of retaliation, than conservative students have on many campuses today.”--Dr. Thomas Sowell
"Gina Carano is a former pro mixed martial artist fighter who's become an actress. She's lately starred in Disney Lucasfilm's The Mandalorian.
She triggered the trans extremists by refusing to put her pronouns in her Twitter bio. They demanded Disney fire her. Submit or die.
She triggered them further by posting the photo of a sea of Nazis giving the heil salute, and one lone man refusing, to mock the leftwing's creepy Nazi-Stasi conformity policing.
|The Dangers of Censorship - American Greatness|
The leftwing extremists demanded Disney fire her for correctly categorizing them as Nazis.
This has gone on for months and months. Periodically the trans extremists and the Twitter leftwing scalphunters restarted cancellation campaigns every other week, for no reason except that they did not like being defied.
Disney subtly encouraged this hate campaign by never offering a statement of support of Carano. The leftwing mobs took this, correctly, as a signal to keep stalking and harassing Carano.
The leftwing media calls this months long campaign of genuine harassment and cyberstalking "backlash." Backlash to someone using free speech in an unauthorized way.
Carano: ""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?"
This woman has been hounded by leftwing thought control thugs for a fucking year. Yes, she's going to start to notice some points of comparison between the treatment of disfavored minorities in the US today and in Nazi Germany in the thirties.
Because these comparisons are obvious and will occur to anyone who isn't actively looking to ignore or dismiss them.
Disney had reportedly been looking for a reason to fire her, because Disney is all about transgenders and leftwing messaging and nothing else:
For months, it was rumored that while the very leftwing Disney and even more leftwing Lucasfilm wanted to fire her, she was being protected by suspected Republican Jon Favreau, producer of The Mandalorian.
Well, either that was never true, or Disney just decided to declare that conservatives are not welcome in the Magic Kingdom, because they've now fired her.
Well obviously, people who disagree with the merged Corporate Government shouldn't be allowed to work then.
That's nothing at all like Nazi Germany!
Oh no! Well obviously, she's not allowed to work then.
That's nothing at all like Nazi Germany!".......
Oregon Muse: "I'm guessing this quote from Braveheart Ms. Carano put up at the end of January probably did, too: "You think the people of this country exist to provide you with position. I think your position exists to provide those people with freedom." That's a not very 'woke' view of how a government should properly function.
So this is the context of her getting booted from Disney. That, and, as I mentioned, not backing down and not apologizing. I like this woman. She fights. This is a pretty good tribute by The Critical Drinker, The Girl Who Wouldn't Back Down:
And one more thing: I'd be willing to bet that before all of this started, Gina Carano was not self-consciously, ideologically conservative (like, say, Rush Limbaugh, or, Ted Cruz or, I'd assume, most of us). But she might be now. The woke mob must want more conservatives. Because what they did to Gina Carano is how you get more conservatives.".......
Mr. SMITH: What is your personal opinion of the Communist Party, Mr. Disney, as to whether or not it is a political party?
Mr. DISNEY: Well, I don’t believe it is a political party. I believe it is an un-American thing. The thing that I resent the most is that they are able to get into these unions, take them over, and represent to the world that a group of people that are in my plant, that I know are good, 100 percent Americans, are trapped by this group, and they are represented to the world as supporting all of those ideologies, and it is not so, and I feel that they really ought to be smoked out and shown up for what they are, so that all of the good, free causes in this country, all the liberalisms that really are American, can go out without the taint of Communism. That is my sincere feeling on it.
Mr. SMITH: Do you feel that there is a threat of communism in the motion-picture industry?
Mr. DISNEY: Yes, there is, and there are many reasons why they would like to take it over or get in and control it, or disrupt it, but I don’t think they have gotten very far, and I think the industry is made up of good Americans, just like in my plant, good, solid Americans.
My boys have been fighting it longer than I have. They are trying to get out from under it and they will in time if we can just show them up.Walt Disney was an anti-Communist patriot and a pro-family traditionalist.
U.K. School Cancels Winston Churchill, J.K. Rowling for ‘Intolerance’ - Geller Report News : “The useful idiot white liberal youth who see themselves as righteous crusaders for the downtrodden minorities are doing the dirty work of communist agitators in what has become the largest global brainwashing operation of the 21st century."
"Cancel culture is just an alt-right conspiracy theory, so we must cancel this actress who suggested it is real," said Kathleen Kennedy. "We are distancing ourselves from this dangerous idea by canceling the woman who perpetrated it."
According to Lucasfilm, Carano was given the opportunity to grovel, promise to do better, renounce her beliefs, and agree to undergo 8 weeks in a Disney reeducation camp if she wished to keep her job. When she refused, she was let go.
"We gave her the chance to avoid cancelation by telling her to recant her belief that cancel culture is real," said Kennedy. "We then tried to burn her at the stake, but our lawyers informed us that's still illegal. For now."
"Only when we force everyone to believe the same thing can we defeat fascism.""
Then: "The CIA is trying to overthrow the government! How can we stop them?"
Now: "The CIA is trying to overthrow the government! How can we help them?"
Then: "Down With Colonialism!"
Now: "Let's Obey Our New Chinese Masters--they only want what's good for us!"
Then: Live and Let Live
You keep telling me you're woke, but you're sleepwalking into disaster.
