    brooklynite (38,519 posts) Pro-Trump protester storms stage at Julius Caesar performance

    Source: New York Daily News

    Two protesters interrupted the Public Theater’s production of Julius Caesar Friday, with one storming the stage to accuse the actors of inciting political violence.

    Trump supporter and conspiracy theorist Jack Posobiec filmed his partner-in-crime, Laura Loomer, as she marched on-stage mid-performance

    “BREAKING: Julius Ceasar Gets SHUTDOWN,” Posobiec tweeted along with a video of the stunt, which showed Loomer shouting “Stop the normalization of political violence against the right!” as she marched on-stage.

    “This is unacceptable,” she said in front of an audience that called for her to “get off the stage.”

    Good for them. Not only are they normalizing violence against conservatives, but more importantly they think that they have the right to shut down any speech they don't like by claiming it is "hate speech" but they think that THEIR speakers and other political activities, including plays are off limits to being interrupted.

    The message should be loud and clear. If they want to hear their speakers and their plays then they have to allow conservatives the same.

    2. Next stop: theater bombings.

    This is what happens in countries that allow their fringe right to get out of control. They always go after artists and the arts first.

    3. Aren't these snowflakes the ones always screaming about "freedom of speech"...?


    Yes, and for years liberals have used the fact that conservatives have respect for freedom of speech to shut down conservative speakers knowing they will retaliate.

    5. Many people waiting on line since 3AM?

    The wait line cannot even start to give out tickets until 12 noon at the earliest! This publicity has been insane for the show. Before the tweet, everyone on the wait line got in, even if they joined the line at 8PM as the show started, they could not sit next to each other, but they all got seats. Since then, they have had hundreds of people each night that waited and did not get in. More than used to wait outside of Hamilton. I know people from Thursday that waited for 6 hours and were shut out.

    6. And wouldn't those people you know that waited be pissed if they had this crap go down

    during the performance I bet
    In the end they were booted and the performance continued at least
    Like those who wished to hear Milo or Ann Coulter?

    Next they should take a page out of the liberals playbook and have half a dozen individuals or groups and interrupt every 15 or 20 minutes.

    7. and what the hell do they think we have had to listen to from right wing media since the Bush years

    Everything was dandy while they were having their say . What they want to do is squash freedom of speech. That guy needs to go to jail along with the other brown shirts that did this.

    That punk thinks he's a hero. Good grief. Calling it a ' PSYOPS operation' . Fucking wannabee.

    AND those aren't patriots- they have a mob/cultist mentality while thinking everyone else is brainwashed or brainwashing.

    Funny thing is REAL NAZI'S have been gathering and marching in America for years now and not a damn thing was said to them. Why doesn't this guy go to some REAL NAZI gathering places and pull this shit? No one says shit to the real Nazi's who actually claim they ARE Nazi's. No one says a damn thing to them or about them. But this punk is protesting freedom of speech and artistic freedoms. Idiot .

    12. I don't think I'll be listening to anyone on the right feign outrage over political violence.



    And their outrage is fake otherwise they would have always spoken out against it.

    When hate speech was directed at Obama, at Clinton - when bullets were directed at Gabby Gifford. They always made excuses or attacked people instead of speaking out against the violence.

    When bigoted oppressive laws, meant only to marginalize, are directed at people of color, at the LGBT community, and at women. Those laws are a form of political violence.

    No. They are beyond themselves with glee that they can latch onto the Scalise shooting and use it as a means to play the victim. To claim they are under attack. Those two in the article are thrilled at the chance to use Scalise's shooting to peddle their bullshit.
    When "hate speech" by the right consists of disagreeing with Obama's policies you know accusation by liberals are a sham.

    I'd love to see what they do with it.

    ETA. Shoot. Nevermind. It closes tomorrow.

    37. Does anyone else think "Posobiec"

    Is a Russian name?

    41. Laura Loomer and Jack Posobiec 'own' the "Citizens for Trump" group. If anyone else disrupted a play

    or ANY event they would be arrested.

    How are people in the theater supposed to know what motive a stage jumper has? In the USA people have jumped on stage and started shooting! (movie shooter)

    Believe I heard that Jesse Waters from Fox has a segment on his show tonight about visiting "Shakespeare in the Park".

    By Lib/Prog standards, the "Donaldus Caesar" cast and crew "deserved" this.

    Not that standards of behavior matter on DU. But conservatives and Rs should behave by a better standard, and this should not have been done.

    If any laws were actually broken, the people who did this should be arrested and prosecuted. Unlike most of the thousands of ANTIFA, BAMN, and BLM rioters, to date.

    I see from this NY Post article there were all of 2 people who disrupted the performance, briefly. They were escorted out by security, and have been charged criminally.

    Two people ran at/near the stage, the actors and crew were scared, and DU folk are outraged. Scores of R and conservative speakers for YEARS on college campuses have their speeches interrupted and/or cancelled by hundreds of disruptors - and more recently by hundreds of violent rioters - and DU-folk cheered the thugs.

    If it weren't for double standards, DU folk would have no standards at all.

    When the shoe is on the other foot , they bitch and moan.

    The play shouldn't have been disrupted , it was wrong.

    But by the same standard these jerkazoids thought it was oh , so cute when speakers they didn't like were kept from speaking because of violence and threats.

    Someone just shot a bunch of people the other day and they still don't get it ; must be wonderful to live in a world where you don't have to live by the standards you set for others.

    Spare us your moronic Drama Queen rants, the Left
    started this "Pure Hatred" shit a long time ago and
    whines like babies whenever they get push back.

    Everyone I know just looks at todays Left as
    a bunch of kooks. The fools on DU and anyone
    that agrees with them are NOT America.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    True, but I'm still going to laugh my fool head off at this incident and at the blatant libtard hypocrisy regarding it.

    People want to make Shakespeare contemporary, maybe this is a little too contemporary. It still doesn't justify public disruption. Free speech is free speech. If you don't like it, don't go. Boycott companies that sponsor it. Fine.

    I don't think the play truly incites violence against anyone. People are responsible for their own behavior.
