Pedro doesn’t have Carano’s track record for causing trouble for Disney. Carano’s firing was also a long time coming. She’s caused them numerous problems with her social media posts. At some point enough’s enough and Disney reached that with Carano.
First off what Pedro posted was truly insulting as it was based on a lie. There was never any intention by the Obama or Trump administrations, both of which placed kids in cages, to exterminate them.

Carano's post represented the conventional wisdom of those that study the rise of Nazi Germany. The question has always been how Hitler could get the German people, a cultured and technically advanced civilization in the mid 20th century, to support the mass murder of a people. Here's a take by a Holocaust survivor on just this topic:


Dehumanizing political rivals or populations of people you don’t like – gun owners, Trump voters, for example – and encouraging them to be cut off from polite society is exactly how the oppression of the Jews started in Hitler’s sphere of influence, such as Austria. That’s where Kitty Werthman got an up close look at the way Hitler was elected and began to implement his nationalist socialist party diktats to take control of every facet of Austrian life.

Of particular pertinence is Werthman’s observations about how the Gestapo would turn neighbor against neighbor by making them informants, which was Carano’s point about cancel culture.

I’ve gotta admit all the threats to cancel Disney+ are kind of funny. It’s almost like the right is embracing the very tactics they claim to hate. Not like it matters though they’ll all be back soon enough if they even leave at all. Wanda vision is going strong and the bad batch is due to launch soon.
I'm just going to allow Disney+ to expire as I won't be watching the Mandalorian anymore.

I'm sure the NFL & NBA owners figured folks would come back - until they didn't.

As far as the right embracing the tactics we hate you're talking apples & oranges. I hate the idea of eye gouging if I get into a fight. But if the guy that jumped me starts gouging out my eyes you can damn well be sure I'll return the favor. What goes around comes around as they say.

Many people have jobs where they have to adhere to some sort of conduct that does not bring negative light to the business or where they work.
For the longest time the employees where I used to work were not allowed to wear their uniform's to public events, like their kids athletic event in the evening right after work, because if they acted a fool it looked bad on the company.

I have a job where I cannot say/do many things in a public capacity while wearing my work uniform, nor reference it while doing/saying such things.


I think she liked the attention and figured she can find work if she gets fired.

I like Mando, and will continue to watch.
I only get D+ while the series is running tho.

Isn’t individual responsibility part of the conservative point of view? Sure seems like you’d dodging it right now. It’s actually kind of snow flake ish if you ask me. If I violated my employers social media policy’s and brought them controversy is it my fault or not? Am I not responsible for the consequences of my actions?

Conservatives need to acknowledge that they are every bit as outrage drunk as liberals.
The left wants compliance with its world view. In cases like this, “individual responsibility” is being true to one’s principles or not getting someone fried because they said something you agreed with

Again, that’s fine, but why aren’t those rules equally applied?

He's fired up that Pedro's still employed.
Not really, I don’t want him fired, just as I don’t want Gina Carano fired. It’s not a hard concept. I’ve said many times, I don’t agree with cancel culture, regardless of who it is.

I get it. I was answering the question. If you want equal application, then you would support his firing since Carano was also shown the door.

Right wing and Left wing actors.
You know the answer to that.

There is a double standard all across the spectrum on many aspects of life, and it will not stop.

She was dumb to continue to push the envelope as it has been going on for a L O N G time.
She needed to shut up and act.

She could have supported what she wanted, and attended different events,but by putting it out there on SM she opened herself up for her company to fire her.


Squeaky wheel gets the grease. Someone says the N word, or trashes the gays, etc their side is relentless in the attacks and companies will fire due to not wanting to feel insensitive.

It is the whole Cramer AIDS ribbon situation. If groups dont come out vehemently against something then they must be for it, right?

It is a freaked up system, no doubt about that and it is not going to change. Companies are too scared to be labeled in a certain way and because some groups are pathetic enough to demand firings/boycotts and such this is the result

That’s the thing, how much power do these groups really have? The news cycle would’ve forgotten about this if they waited a day.

There is a lot of faux outrage, no doubt about that and people saying things they dont truly believe because they feel if they 'dont wear the AIDS ribbon' they must not support.

Sorta like the stupid voting sticker. If ya dont wear it, ya didnt vote, right?

There is a way of thinking, and I agree with it to a point in some lines of work I do, that "What you permit, you endorse" and so many companies are so afraid by the woke crowd they feel they have not choice.

Actions have consequences. Sounds like Carano needs to learn some personal responsibility.
What about Pedro Pascal? He gets a pass for a tweet that’s very similar. Neither should be fired, we have to stop giving so much power to these little a holes on Twitter.

It does feel intentional, since she already had a movie in the works from Ben Shapiro. I’m sure it will be terrible. Conservatives aren’t edgy enough to make compelling movies, but Liberals are too big of pvssies to make anything worth watching. It’s a conundrum.

Label much?

Painting with a pretty broad brush there dont ya think?

It would be like me, using you as an example, saying that all 5'9" (so you say) males are banned at Elder football games......

Shapiro is a social conservative, they don’t know how to make good content. Hollywood has become even more woke and far left, now 90% of movies suck balls. Ask yourself, what’s the last comedy you saw that was quotable (ie Anchorman, Hangover). It’s been forever.

I don't know and frankly couldn't care less how consistent a social media site is, because I'm already aware they aren't. Is it surprising to you that they don't actually have any rules? Everyday there is something new showing the hypocrisy or downright scumminess of these companies, and every day there are morons who are just shocked! (Or at least act shocked, they aren't really, just need something to be angry at). These platforms are cancerous, provide nothing of value, and should be completely dismantled.
