It’s weird we fight for censorship after being martyred by kings and priests for free speech.
I came across an article on my twitter feed that talks about how outrage mail is pouring in over the stabbing of the Trump-like character in a New York Central Park production of Shakespeare’s Julius Ceasar. The Twitter feed included a link to a BostonGlobe article http://www.bostonglobe.com/lifestyle/style/2017/06/16/knives-are-out-for-theaters-that-bear-name-shakespeare/BjIuTepxxULJHZvTAQmF6H/story.html?event=event25.
I wrote how this is the probably the most out lash this production has had since Orson Wells’ Mercury Theatre Production back in the ’30s. But the Hitler character portrayed in that production didn’t die although the Fuer was a little butt hurt over the whole idea.
I will admit that out of all the plays produced by Shakespeare that was it a coincidence that the most politically edgy play was performed during the largest presidential witch hunt in American history? Are the Liberal Intellectual Elite trying to say please kill President Trump? If so, that type of mob violence is only going to backfire and force further censorship.
However why don’t conservatives write a play and perform that play showing the positive side to Trump’s character instead of writing hate mail and performing a childlike tantrum? What has this become Right Wing America? Are you now competing with Liberals over whose more easily offended by arts imitation of life? That work of art displays an uncomfortable aspect of reality.
The Liberal Intellectual Elite have pushed too far lately. Where were you when we needed you? During the 2000 presidential election between Al Gore and George Bush. Where was the witch hunt back then? Why are people taking Trump’s presidency as seriously as a Gilbert Godfrey joke?
The Presidential witch hunt for Donald Trump has pushed our country into chaos. We had our chance with Al Gore but no one put the effort into the corruption behind that campaign. I mean this isn’t even a witch hunt. This is people trying to do to Trump and to the Shakespearean fesbian lesbians what they do to people what Trump does to people all the time on Twitter. It’s a joke worse than any joke Kramer said during a live performance.
