System Of A Down’s John Dolmayan, who has continuously made headlines for his right-wing political ramblings, is at it again. The drummer has taken to Instagram to defend actress and former MMA fighter Gina Carano, who was fired from “The Mandalorian” after she stupidly tried to compare conservatives in America to Jewish people during the Holocaust.
Carano initially said the following:
“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.
Lucasfilm then responded by firing her:
“Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future. Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”
Despite Carano’s ludicrous statement, Dolmayan apparently felt the need to defend her. He said the following:
“It takes a lot of guts to put your career on the line for your convictions. History will honor people like @ginajcarano and condemn the cowards who instituted woke justice against her.”
Carano’s anti-Semitic post came after a series of posts in which she shared anti-masker rhetoric, unfounded claims about voter fraud, and transphobic views. Dolmayan’s defense of her came after he railed against cancel culture, voiced support for Donald Trump, denied the existence of systemic racism, and claimed that Black Lives Matter and Antifa supporters are “Marxist enemies of the United States.”
