This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Seriously, this is how you fight back: conservatives making their own movies.

While i would agree that making movies by people other than hollywood is neat, movies cost money. Its not a sure investment, lots can go wrong. Short budget can be a hit, yeah, but we dont really hear that much about the bad ones(unless they are impossibly bad, like the Room). Also i think this is not a move that will sustain Gina Caranos film carrier in the long run.

Having said that, seriously, the firing was a really bad move. Apparently the suits cant forsee how popular the new star wars mandalorian really is. This is ''adjusting'' a goose that will not lay golden eggs, its a goose that can potentially save the farm.

I'd really like conservatists to do good movies, alas I'm sceptical - especially if by "conservatism" we take American republicans.

Less than 24 hours after being fired, she gets a new movie:

The timing of this deal makes me think that either she knew she was going to be fired or had already been fired. As I said, the production for Mandalorian Season 3 wasn't supposed to even start until Boba Fett was finished, so she wasn't actually working on Mando at the time she was "fired".

Also, Hasbro announced that they cancelled all their upcoming Cara Dune figures, which pretty much shatters that fantasy that Hasbro will get sick of WotC's wokeness and step in to fix D&D. They clearly care more about politics than profit.

More likely someone heard the news, gave her a call, said hey let's do a movie, she said sure, and they immediately announced it to capitalize on the attention.

And the collectors have already started making a run on the online stores for the existing figures, I'm assuming in the hopes that they'll be collectible due to rarity and the controversy.

Funny really, I did actually subscribe to Disney + to watch The Mandalorian, but I cancelled it after I finished watching all 3 season.
I bought it for a month only, so it's already expired, otherwise I would have cancelled it over this.

Lol, NM, even though I wanted to watch the Boba Fett series etc, I'm not really that fussed and can go without.
Happy to read a book instead!

Her Holocaust comparisons were extreme. While the woke have stated numerous times that they want to subject conservatives to re-education camps, drone strikes, etc... conservatives still make up around half the country or so. The woke simply don’t have the numbers to ever start the Holocaust they want within the foreseeable future.

Considering the other anti-woke stuff she said previously, Disney probably fired her because the image she re-posted was excessively gruesome. That’s just bad for business.

But whatever. I’m not omniscient.

Her point was that the persecution of the Jews was incremental. The important lesson of the Holocaust is not that Nazis are bad. It's that we all have the capacity to act like a Nazi given the correct circumstances.

And Disney did not fire Pedro Pascal for posting a nearly identical meme.



Only Pedro's tweet was hilariously inept, as the second picture is of Palestinian children who were not being detained for any reason.

Gina Carano has since taken down her "offensive" instagram, while Pedro's tweet remains.

Gina's "offense" is that she didn't bend the knee hard enough, and on her own time, didn't parrot the woke ideology being pushed on her by her co-actors and the Disney corporation.

Yeah, the hypocrisy is revolting. The Republican party isn't anywhere close to Nazis. They accept black people as members, which is about as far from Nazism as you can get.

Oh wait, whiteness has been redefined as a multiracial political color now. So under wokespeak, non-white people are Nazis if they don't hold woke beliefs.

Fucking insane.

Apparently Perdro Pascal is pulled (or walked) from the Mandalorian now?
