“We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending. Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil. Our strength is a luminous sun, towards which all intelligence blossoms… And the impervious shelter, beneath which it has prospered.”

Crush the opposition

by | Aug 7, 2020 | Uncategorized | 1 comment

Gina “Crush” (or “Conviction”, depending on which part of her career you look at) Carano is not quite the household name in WMMA that, say, Ronda Rousey is. But unlike her vastly overrated and overhyped successor to the title of “Queen of Women’s MMA”, Gina Carano had (and has) serious striking credentials and had a legendary career in the sport before retiring after a truly lopsided TKO beatdown at the hands of Cris “Cyborg”.

Now, normally, WMMA would be of nearly zero concern to any of my readers. Most of us don’t particularly like watching women getting their faces smashed in by other women – unless, of course, the woman doing the smashing is Holly Holm, and the woman getting smashed is the aforementioned Ronda Rousey.

(I also have quite a bit of respect for Valentina “Bullet” Shevchenko, who is another absolute badass muay thai fighter. But honestly, that’s about it.)

But Gina Carano has been making headlines of late with her absolute refusal to back down in the face of mob intimidation:

MMA fighter and ‘Deadpool’ star Gina Carano has been accused by social justice warriors on Twitter of being “racist” for not showing enough support to Black Lives Matter and daring to express herself.

#Ginacaranoisoverparty began trending on Wednesday as the woke mob set Carano in their sights after days of her pushing back against critics. The controversy appears to have kicked off with Carano posting a black-and-white wartime photo of men giving the infamous Nazi salute with one circled, as he’s refusing to take part in the gesture.

The ‘Mandalorian’ actress was then hit with tweets from trolls, who claimed they were trying to “educate” her while accusing her of being racist and not supporting the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement through her social media.

Carano, being the fighter she is, called the trolls “cowards and bullies.”“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. Then I’m sorry, these people are not ‘educators’… they are cowards and bullies,” she tweeted.

This response from Ms Carano to her trolls and crybullies was quite excellent:

In case you’re wondering what Ms Carano looks like, this is what she was like in her salad days:

That’s not what she looks like now, let’s be honest. She’s chunked up quite a bit over the last five years or thereabouts – face (and hot body), meet Wall, there you go. But, she’s still not too bad.

And if there are ladies reading this – yes, that there is pure objectification. Guess what – THAT’S WHAT MEN DO. Deal with it.

As for Ms Carano’s stand against the wokerati who insist on thought-policing everyone, what can I say, other than: well done, Crush.

    Good for her. It's about time that people realize that the Twitter "mob" is just 20-30 mentally ill idiots with too much time on their hands, plus their army of sockpuppets.

    The first time I ever saw Gina Carano was as a Soviet commando in C&C Red Alert 3 ( imgur.com/gallery/XGLg7, she starts about a quarter way down). I don't recall her doing much other than standing around looking good, but she did a fine job of it. She had some tough competition from Gemma Atkinson and whoever the other Russian briefing babe was, though. Jenny McCarthy was in it too, but she was FAR past her sell-by date at that point.

    Now excuse me, I think I need to go play that game again…
