(National Sentinel) Left-wing lunacy: It is one thing to oppose the president and his party on ideological and political grounds. It is quite another to wish him dead, and clearly, the unhinged Left – firmly ensconced in the Democratic Party – wish they could find some way to legally bump off President Donald J. Trump.
In fact, the portrayals of him being killed by lunatics in the entertainment industry has gotten downright common, and frankly, it’s inexcusable.
After Snoop Dogg “shot” a Trump-like clown, and Kathy Griffin held up a mock bloodied severed Trump head, now Shakespeare in the Park, an annual summer program by The Public Theater that puts on plays by William Shakespeare in Central Park, New York City, is “killing” the president.
As reported by Mediaite:
…[T]his rendition of Shakespeare’s tragedy comes with a twist — Caesar is played by a character that bears a striking resemblance to President Donald Trump.
…The Public Theater’s Oskar Eustis directed the Trump-inspired take on the classic political drama, which boasts famed stage actor John Douglas Thompson and House of Cards star Corey Stoll in its cast.
The choice of Julius Caesar for the annual program is one dripping with subtext, chosen deliberately for the supposed parallels between the Roman dictator and Trump. A description of the play on The Public Theater’s website states that “Shakespeare’s political masterpiece has never felt more contemporary.”
It describes the Roman leader as “Magnetic, populist, irreverent,” and “bent on absolute power.” The description also notes that a “small band of patriots, devoted to the country’s democratic traditions, must decide how to oppose him.”
Those who have read Shakespeare’s play know how that opposition manifests itself (brace for spoilers): a group of conspirators — including his friends Cassius and Brutus — stab Caesar to death on the Senate floor.
Laura Sheaffer, a sales manager at Salem Media who attended a performance of Julius Caesar on Saturday, first described the the Trump-inspired performance during an interview with Joe Piscopo on AM 970 THE ANSWER.
“The actor playing Caesar was dressed in a business suit, with a royal blue tie, hanging a couple inches below the belt line, with reddish-blonde hair — just like Trump,” Sheaffer told Mediaite.
“I always go to Shakespeare in the park, but I wasn’t expecting to see this,” Sheaffer said, adding that the script was mostly loyal to the original Shakespeare, and that there was no explicit reference to the American president, though the intention was “blatantly obvious.”
She added that the actress playing Caesar’s wife, Calpurnia, who tried to convince her husband not to go to the Senate, bore a resemblance to first lady Melania Trump, right down to her slavic accent.
There was also a scene where
Trump Caesar steps naked out of a bathtub, which Sheaffer described as “disrespectful” and a “mockery of the office of the President.”
As for the murder scene, it was portrayed in full “onstage, and blood was spewing everywhere out of his body,” of course underneath an American flag (as though the psycho Left are attempting to claim that murdering presidents is what ‘Merica is really about).
“To be honest I thought it was shocking and distasteful,” Shaeffer continued. “If this had happened to any other president — even as recently as Barack Obama or George W. Bush — it would not have flown. People would have been horrified.”
“I mean it was the on-stage murder of the president of the United States,” she said, noting that at the end of the play, Marc Anthony was celebrating Brutus for his ‘bravery’ in saving Romans from Trump Caesar’s rule, which gave the distinct impression that “if you don’t support the president, it’s ok to assassinate him,” she said.
“I don’t love President Trump, but he’s the president. You can’t assassinate him on a stage,” she told the media site.
Sure it is – you know, as long as it’s Trump, whom the Left has decided on its own somehow deserves to be killed simply because he does not abide by their agenda – like most of the rest of the country.
Insane “progressives” are trying to provoke some brainwashed idiot follower into attempting what they themselves are regularly fantasizing about, as evidenced by their sick “performance art.” When it happens, they will have blood on their hands and will have earned our enduring ire. And vengeance.
