Gina Carano has been from The Mandalorian

What did Gina Carano say about the Capitol riots?

Gina reshared a post that compared modern American politics to Nazi Germany, while she claimed that having different political views in 2021 was similar to being Jewish during the Holocaust.

According to Variety, the since deleted post said: “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.”
