nominating "YOU'LL BE DEAD" as the most underappreciated piece of dialogue in all of star wars

quietly thinking this line to myself more and more often

guess i'll put this here:

Less than 24 hours after her explosive ouster from Star Wars series The Mandalorian for incendiary social media posts, Gina Carano has hit back at her detractors and revealed a new movie project she is making with conservative website The Daily Wire.

Gina Carano Hits Back, Announces New Movie Project With Ben Shapiro’s Daily Wire: “They Can’t Cancel Us If We Don’t Let Them”

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
betting she also thinks THEY LIVE is about how jews control everything

Yeah dude tbh I used to wonder if that's what 'They Live' was getting at back in high school... I honestly don't believe that at all, but it's not a huge jump. If anything, I guess it made me realize that the whole antisemetic conspiracy narrative is just barely outside the realm of full-on schizophrenic delusion.

The thing I find so weird is that Gina Carano caused a stink by comparing her "conservative views" to the holocaust - basically saying she's a victim, similar to how jews were victims. But then it gets her "cancelled" and now people are playing up that she's a victim for her conservative views. It's some bizarre form of wish fulfillment.

At the risk of sounding conspiratorial [tinfoil hat] I wouldn't doubt if the second wave of Gina's bad takes had been planned by Ben Shapiro to promote his new movie platform/production team. I don't think that Disney actually fired her outright - they just didn't pick up her contract, and were asked for a statement after her most recent posts:
“Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future,” a Lucasfilm spokesperson said in a statement.

“Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable,” the statement added.
I'd almost guarantee that Carano was talking to Shapiro (who was already launching his platform) after the first time there were talks of her being booted a while back. If she lets Shapiro know that her Disney contract isn't being picked up, he finds a way to capitalize on it since she's getting cancelled anyway - make it a big deal AGAIN. The very next day after these stories ran about her getting axed, she's already signed up with his company for a movie exclusive to his platform.

Shapiro has teamed up with Dallas Sonnier, who is just a total slimeball - but for a while was a Fantastic Fest / Indie film darling with his company Cinestate. After a string of successful movies, he bought Fangoria, and more recently Birth.Movies.Death., then started a conservative culture/film site that put out click-bate headlines (half the time, it was about "cancel culture") along side pretty decent content by some legit people. But it was discovered he had covered for a sexual predator filmmaker, some other #metoo stuff happened and everyone bailed on him. He was pressured to sell Fangoria, BMD writers dropped out, and he was ruined. Maybe this article breaks it down better, I haven't read it: https://www.thedailybeast.com/the-ugly- ... hide-fight

Ben Shaprio knows that no one actually gets cancelled, especially if they just double down. They get a pay day. He's media savvy enough to know how this stuff operates.[/tinfoil hat]

The whole Gina Carano thing is strange to me, considering she’s a muscular woman who fights she’s probably had to deal with her own share of small minded “butch/bull dyke” shit while growing up.

It wouldn’t be too cynical to assume she’s hopping on the trend of gay conservative grifters like Dave Rubin and milo yanananahayabulokis

Wait, wait, Ben Shapiro is making movies? Does that mean he'll finally get that dramedy made? Hahahaha.
This is going to be so glorious when it falls flat on its face.

I'll say this in defense of Gina Carano and a lot of other people like her. She is someone who basically has a career because she looked pretty for someone who got punched in the face for a living, at a time when that was considered unusual. And I do think it's an odd time to be living in where someone with those kinds of credentials is basically held to the same standards of eloquence and diplomacy as a politician running for office. What she said was fucking stupid, but why do we expect someone like her to be smart?

You are right. But they don't expect her to be smart, they expect her to be obedient. Everything must be made submissive towards the new caliphate.

Or, you know, maybe DON'T compare being a Republican and having to defend your views to being the same thing as being beaten in the streets and rounded up into camps and being murdered. It's not that hard to NOT make that comparison.

It's an incredibly stupid and emotionally insensitive thing to say.

Yes, the new caliphate of Twitter shouty-heads that occasionally forces an entertainment business millionaire to take a year off. Sic transit gloria mundi.

I think it’s hilarious and I have no sympathy for her, but also Twitter mobs and cunting Disney as judge jury executioner of social behaviour and morality is so far beyond the pale..

A third will be good, and a third will be bad.
Rest will be ok.
So just ok.
