6-16-17. NYC, “Julius Caesar” (Shakespeare in the Park)
Conservative activist Laura Loomer interrupted the stage production of “Julius Caesar” screaming: “Stop the normalization of political violence against the right,” “This promotes violence against Donald Trump,” and called them “Nazis.” The actor who portrays Julius Caesar is a Trump lookalike, who, in the play, is stabbed to death.
Ms. Loomer was arrested.
What’s wrong with this picture? You have to ask yourself: What would happen if Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton were being killed (symbolically) before an approving audience. My guess is, it wouldn’t last more than one performance. You’d have swarms of violent protests. Ms. Loomer was arrested, when the violent protestors at Berkeley were allowed to roam free.
Some thought (I didn’t) that the play would be cancelled after the shooting of Rep. Scalise. I knew they wouldn’t have the class. They’re pure scum.
The left are arguing this is a First Amendment issue. I argue that this play is being deliberately staged to provoke an assassination. Therefore, it is a direct threat to the life of the President.
A boycott of the sponsors might help. Time/Warner and the New York Times should be ashamed of themselves.
We need more Laura Loomers. If we did, this loathsome play called “art” by the snickering left, would be cancelled. (The following video is from “Inside Edition”.)
