HAMILTON, SHUT UP AND SING!
Exclusive: Jesse Lee Peterson blasts musical's 'leftist diatribe' against Trump, Pence
Liberals are truly classless and intolerant. After the election of Donald Trump, that fact is becoming clearer by the day.
Two weeks after the election, left-wing entertainers and activists are still whining and protesting the election outcome.
“Compassionate” liberals booed Vice Presidential-elect Mike Pence as he walked into the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York City to watch “Hamilton,” the Broadway musical. And at the close of the show, actor Brandon Victor Dixon, who portrays former Vice President Aaron Burr, harassed Mr. Pence, delivering a statement written by the show’s producers, as remaining cast members linked arms in solidarity.
“We are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents, or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights, sir. But we truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values, and to work on behalf of all of us.”
President-elect Trump sent out the following Tweet in response: “Our wonderful future V.P. Mike Pence was harassed last night at the theater by the cast of Hamilton, cameras blazing. This should not happen!” “The cast of Hamilton was very rude last night to a very good man, Mike Pence. Apologize!”
Actor Brandon Victor Dixon responded: @realDonaldTrump conversation is not harassment sir. And I appreciate @mike_pence for stopping to listen.
Mike Pence came to watch the play; he didn’t come to listen to a leftist diatribe! Dixon, his fellow cast members, and the show’s producers weren’t attempting conversation; they ambushed Pence and his family while a hostile crowd surrounded them.
But this is not the first time supporters of “Hamilton” have treated guests poorly. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was greeted with boos during his attendance at the show.
Yet the show’s creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda, tweeted his support for the cast: “Proud of @HamiltonMusical. Proud of @BrandonVDixon, for leading with love. And proud to remind you that ALL are welcome at the theater.”
If Lin-Manuel Miranda meant what he said, he would apologize to Mike Pence, and offer a refund to all paying patrons offended by his cast’s disgusting behavior.
During a commencement address at the University of Pennsylvania in May, Miranda attacked Donald Trump for his call to secure the border. Miranda is also very friendly with Barack Obama. He performed at the White House in 2009, and soon became a regular. He even did a free-style rap with Obama in the Rose Garden – real classy.
Liberals always talk of “love,” but they are hateful and unforgiving. Their phony love only tolerates those who agree with their godless lifestyle. And they condemn those who speak truth.
Maybe the cast would benefit from heeding the advice of one of Alexander Hamilton’s famous contemporaries – a man named George Washington. In his “Rules of Civility,” Washington’s very first rule stated:
Every action done in company ought to be with some sign of respect, to those that are present.
“Hamilton” has been embroiled in controversy previously when the musical issued a casting call seeking only “non-white” actors. But since the show’s creator is a liberal Hispanic, and the ad only discriminated against whites, no problem, right?
So, what’s making liberals “anxious” about the incoming Trump-Pence administration?
Is it because they want to secure our Southern border and keep drugs and criminals out? Is it the promise of fair-trade deals? Or could it be the promise to protect Americans from Islamic terrorists who hate freedom, Christians, Jews, women and homosexuals?
The cast of “Hamilton” includes Javier Muñoz – an openly gay, HIV-positive actor. The show’s cast is involved in gay and AIDS-related causes. After the Orlando gay nightclub massacre, perpetrated by a man who pledged allegiance to ISIS, the cast of “Hamilton” decided to drop the use of muskets from a performance at the Tony Awards. If the “Hamilton” cast were rational, it would wholeheartedly support Donald Trump’s plan to destroy ISIS.
The left is hysterical over fabricated reports of increased racial attacks and harassment of minorities. But the corrupt corporate media refuse to report the real hate directed at Trump supporters.
David Wilcox, 49, was beaten by a black mob in Chicago who screamed, “You voted Trump!” and “You gonna pay for that s–t!”
A San Francisco area high-school girl was punched and kicked for a pro-Trump social media post.
Corey Cataldo, 24, dared to wear his “Make America Great Again” hat onto a Bronx, New York, subway train, and says he was choked and shoved for his action.
Black Lives Matter protesters attacked 21-year-old Feras Jabro of El Cajon, California. Jabro was hit from behind, then chased down and beaten – all of it captured on video.
The left’s panic will only get worse. It will continue to lie and demonize President-elect Trump, his appointees and supporters. Trump is appointing serious and principled people to Cabinet positions, and he is showing signs that he will carry out his campaign promises. How refreshing!
It’s time for those of us who love America and respect the rule of law to point out the absolute hypocrisy of the left and to hold accountable those who promote real hatred and violence.
