Disney cancels Gina Carano for Holocaust comparison, but is silent on Terry Moran who compared Trump to Hitler

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.

Biden frees Venezuelan President Maduro’s drug dealing relatives in prisoner swap

Joe Biden

President Biden freed two of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s relatives Saturday in exchange for seven jailed Americans. The two nephews of Maduro’s wife Cilia Flores, had been convicted in the United States for drug dealing and sentenced to 18 years in prison, according to the BBC.

According to the report, the swap was in exchange for five American oil executives. Those Americans were “exchanged for two of Mr Maduro’s wife’s nephews, who were serving 18-year sentences in the US on drug charges,” the officials told the BBC. Maduro’s nephews were convicted under the Trump administration and the Venezuelan government claims that they were “unjustly” jailed in the United States.

In a statement from the White House Saturday, Biden said the American’s were  “wrongfully detained.”  He said the American’s  would soon be reunited with their relatives, according to reports.

“Today, we celebrate that seven families will be whole once more. To all the families who are still suffering and separated from their loved ones who are wrongfully detained – know that we remain dedicated to securing their release,” the Biden statement added.

Meanwhile, 13 Republican members of Congress sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, requesting more information on “the intelligence report” that alleges Maduro is emptying his prisons and allowing them to head to the United States in the caravans that crossing the porous border.

The letter states that the report warns Border Patrol agents to be on the look-out for “violent criminals from Venezuela among the migrant caravans heading towards the U.S.-Mexico border.”

“It has been widely reported that the Venezuelan regime, under the control of Nicolás Maduro Moros, is deliberately releasing violent prisoners early, including inmates convicted of ‘murder, rape, and extortion,’ and pushing them to join caravans heading to the United States,” the letter states.
