Conservatives Are Demanding Pedro Pascal Also Be Fired From 'The Mandalorian' For Old Holocaust Tweet

After raging over the fact Gina Carano was fired from The Mandalorian for comparing being a Republican in the contemporary United States to being a Jew in Nazi Germany, conservatives have begun demanding Pedro Pascal also be fired from the show for a tweet comparing events in America to Nazi Germany—but in a far different context.

Pascal tweeted a photo invoking young people imprisoned in Nazi concentration camps as a comparison to children in cages at the United States border.

Like a false-equivalency vulture, the right immediately descended upon this as evidence Pascal should also be fired.





Pascal, who plays the titular character on The Mandalorian, often criticized the policies of Donald Trump and the right, which has always drawn the ire of right-wing Star Wars fans.





The calls to fire Pascal invoke the paradox of tolerance:

"Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them."





Pascal was recently cast to portray Joel in the upcoming film adaptation of the popular video game The Last Of Us.

So not only is he not fired, but he's going to be pretty busy for the next few years.
