On Sunday night, protesters disrupted the final performance of the Trump-assassination version of William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, shouting “liberal hate kills” and other slogans.
Both interruptions were captured on video and posted to YouTube. The first protester shouted,” Goebbels would be proud” in addition to “liberal hate kills.”
Did SCOTUS make the right decision on medical mandates for large businesses?
Some time later, a second protester interrupted the performance, shouting “CNN is ISIS” and “Goebbels would be proud.”
According to the Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft, the man recording the protest got jumped by the crowd.
“Evidently,” he said, “they were not happy that someone would film the protesters.”
“Our filmmaker screamed, ‘Liberal Hate kills!’ as they dragged him from the theater,” Hoft added.
Police reportedly said, “Dude we’re on your side but just keep it down.” According to Hoft, the filmmaker told the police “Blue lives matter.”
“They embraced him,” he said.
According to Fox News:
Police say 26-year-old Javanni Valle, of Brooklyn, and 28-year-old Salvatore Cipolla, of Oceanside, Long Island, were arrested on trespassing and disorderly conduct charges Sunday evening during the Public Theater production’s last performance in Central Park.
Information on their lawyers wasn’t available. The two were given desk appearance tickets.
Apparent video of the incident shows a man rushing the stage shouting “Liberal hate kills!” and “Goebbels will be proud!” before he is grappled by security and pulled away.
It’s not the first time protesters disrupted the play, as we reported Saturday. On Friday night, Rebel Media’s Jack Posobiec and Laura Loomer made their feelings known. Loomer, Todd Starnes said, “stormed the stage and shouted, ‘Stop Leftist Violence.'”
Posobiec stood and shouted, “The blood of Steve Scalise is on your hands” and “Goebbels would be proud.”
Both Delta and Bank of America pulled their sponsorship of the Public Theater over the play, but CNN’s parent company and the New York Times continued their support.
The Public Theater is sponsored by the Time Warner Foundation, a nonprofit group supported by CNN’s parent company, Time Warner Inc.
A representative for Time Warner and the Time Warner Foundation did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The updated take on the Shakespeare classic sparked controversy over its main character’s close resemblance to President Trump, with actor Gregg Henry sporting a blond, Trump-like hairstyle and a business suit and tie. The character is later brutally stabbed to death by his associates in the Senate.
Agree or disagree with the actions of the protesters, but they are correct. Liberal hate, as we’ve recently seen, is deadly. And yes, Hitler’s propaganda minister would be proud of the way in which leftists have mainstreamed the idea of murdering President Trump.
