Disney has fired actress Gina Carano after she compared hating someone for their political beliefs to Nazi Germany.

Carano uploaded an image to her social media account Wednesday where she questioned why hating someone for their political views was any different than what the Jews endured in Nazi Germany.

The post stated:

“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?”

The hashtag #FireGinaCarano has trended on social media in recent months after other comments the Disney star has made.

Carano starred in the Disney film, “The Mandalorian,” a Lucasfilm production.

In a statement to io9, a Lucasfilm representative said, “Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future. Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Lucasfilm planned on announcing in December that Carano would star in her own Star Wars series. After Carano received backlash for a number of tweets in November, Lucasfilm decided to not move forward with the series.

Carano has also been dropped as a client by the United Talent Agency, THR reported.

“They have been looking for a reason to fire her for two months, and today was the final straw,” THR’s sources said.

In June 2018, Carano’s co-star, Pedro Pascal, tweeted an image of Nazi Germany in 1944 compared to an image of children in cages, incorrectly labeled as America in 2018.

The image is of Palestinian children in 2010.

The discrimination within the Walt Disney Company is very apparent, and many are calling out Disney for the double standard.

ABC News correspondent Terry Moran made a controversial comment this week comparing former President Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler on-air Tuesday but has yet to receive any repercussions from it.

ABC, owned by The Walt Disney Company, has not taken action against Moran for his statements. ABC News and Disney have yet to comment on the matter.

“[Trump] has the Republican party like a personalized power like we haven’t seen, it’s a Caudillo, it’s a Caesar, it’s a Fuhrer. We don’t see that in this country. We do now,” Moran said.

“Fuhrer” was a title used by Adolf Hitler to define his role of absolute authority in Nazi Germany.

Chinese Spy Balloon: Tensions rise between the U.S. and China

A strange object was spotted Wednesday over Billings Montana. The Pentagon confirmed Thursday that the strange object was, in fact, a Chinese spy balloon. According to a report from KPAX, a western Montana news outlet, the balloon had been on the governments radar for days.

On Friday, the Chinese government released a statement saying that the balloon spotted in Billings is a “civilian airship” that’s sole purpose is used to collect research on weather and that it had just blown off course. The balloon was not shot down by orders of the Pentagon due to the risk of falling debris injuring people on the ground.

Sara Carter, who has spoken frequently on the Chinese government’s threat and expansion to the West, stated on Twitter that the United States has failed to stop China from purchasing land near military installations, vital agricultural land, as well as, allowing Chinese linked companies, such as Huawei, to install technology in cellular towers. Those cellular towers are located in Montana, along side more than 150 ICBM nuclear silos.

China said, “The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into U.S. airspace due to force majeure.” Majeure meaning that it was out of there control. It blew off course due to limited “self-steering” capabilities according the Ministry. The ministry also stated that the balloon, “deviated far from its planned course.”

This incident is adding fuel to the fire of what is already a tense relationship between the worlds two largest economies. China already lays claim to approximately 80% of the South China Sea, and is seeking full control over Taiwan after assuming full control of Hong Kong. China’s belt and road initiative has invested copious amounts of money into building infrastructure in other countries and uses it as economic blackmail. China’s transportation of fentanyl into Mexico is yet again another example of how they are seeking to damage the US.

Is this just a weather ballon that blew off course? US officials at the White House seem to be unconvinced and will continue to monitor the balloon, as reported.

UPDATED: Statement from the Pentagon was jaw dropping when a reporter asked if the public has a right to know about Beijing’s balloon.

“The public certainly has the ability to look up in the sky and see where the balloon is,” a DOD official responded.
