Gina Carano is an actress who has starred in such films as “Haywire” and the Star Wars feature “The Mandalorian.” But her first career was as a mixed martial artist.

So she clearly knows how to stand up for herself in a fight. She suddenly found herself in the middle of one as the target of radical leftist bullying on social media.

It appears to have started because she posted a famous picture of a man in the middle of a crowd of Nazis refusing to give the Nazi salute. She explained the photo in another tweet, “Heartbreaking and powerful story of a man who changed his ways for the woman he loved.. love changes the world, one person at a time.”

She was thereafter inundated by tweets calling her a “racist” and a “bootlicker,” along with accounts demanding that she say “BLM” and “ACAB” (All Cops are bastards) to prove she wasn’t a racist.

Apparently she didn’t feel that she needed to kowtow to radical leftists to prove herself and refused. ‘Do what we say and hate cops to prove you’re not a racist!’

There were even bot accounts going after her.

When she started blocking some accounts, that ticked them off more. She was told that they were trying to “educate” her so she would be on the “right side of history.” But Carano was having none of it.

“In my experience, screaming at someone that they are a racist when they are indeed NOT a racist & any post and/or research you do will show you those exact facts,” she replied. “Then I’m sorry, these people are not “educators”.. they are cowards and bullies.”

They’re going to ‘re-educate’ her to ‘right think,’ like the Red Guard. But Carano rightly called them what they were.

Now they’ve been trying to “cancel her.”

This is the point at which many tend to toady under when met with leftist cancel culture pressure.

But Carano was holding strong against the social media bots.

“Dear trolls.. pssst..(oh but make sure you keep checking in from all of your other 12 fake accounts). Cowards.”

Good for her. Saying “All cops are bastards” or supporting a radical leftist group doesn’t show you’re not a racist. It just shows you’re on the wrong side of history, supporting an oppressive radical ideology.

She also got a lot of support on Twitter.
