Gina Carano didn’t say anything bigoted. She didn’t molest anyone or engage in hate speech. She spoke her opinion, and frankly what she said wasn’t all that controversial. But the “woke” mob went after her and Disney for having her, so Disney and Lucasfilm responded by canceling her. According to The Right Scoop:
Lucasfilm just went woke today and fired Gina Carano (Cara Dune) from the Mandalorian after the left went into an uproar over some recent social media posts:

Here’s the statement Lucasfilm made:
“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 Variety, here are the ‘offending’ posts:
Carano shared several offensive posts on her Instagram stories Tuesday night, including one that likened contemporary political differences to the treatment of Jews in Nazi Germany.
“Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors…even by children,” Carano wrote Instagram. “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 post originated on a different Instagram account.
Another photo on Carano’s story featured a person with several cloth masks covering their entire face and head. The caption said “Meanwhile in California.”
Both posts were removed from Carano’s Instagram story Wednesday afternoon. Other posts, including a quote saying “Expecting everyone you encounter to agree with every belief or view you hold is fucking wild” and one saying “Jeff Epstein didn’t kill himself,” remained.
Many people on Twitter began using the hashtag #FireGinaCarano, tagging accounts for Disney, Disney Plus, “Star Wars” and Lucasfilm and requesting that Carano be dropped from “The Mandalorian.”
What a joke. There is nothing at all wrong with her posts! In fact she makes a great point about hating someone for their political views!
This isn’t going to end until conservatives and, well, everyone gets involved to let those succumbing to the “woke” mobs know we are not appreciative of their pandering. They fear the “woke” mob more than us because we do not generally take action to cancel people. Perhaps it’s time to cancel the cancelers.
We need moves like these to backfire. They need to learn that if they bow to the mob, they’re going to face a backlash from those of us who appreciate freedom of thought. We’re not talking about someone who is directly involved in diplomacy or political negotiations. She’s an actress. Her job has nothing to do with her views.
Disney must be made to hear that they’re not immune to repercussions for being a radical progressive company. They’re huge, and that “too big to fail” mentality has made them disregard considerations of the complacent right. This must be reversed. It’s time to cancel Disney. As classical liberal Dave Rubin noted on Twitter:
Gina, if you’d like to come on the show to discuss anything let me know. pic.twitter.com/c2SSAjjdyu

We stand with Gina Carano and we oppose the actions of Disney to cancel her. The “woke” mob has perceived power, but apparently those who believe in freedom of thought do not. Let’s prove them wrong.
COVID-19 lockdowns are taking down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the resurgence of lockdowns that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $17,300 to stay afloat through March when we hope the economy will be more open, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. In November, 2020, we hit 1.2 million visitors.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
