Delta and Bank of America pulls the plug on sponsorship of Shakespeare in the Park over Julius Caesar production that shows bloody assassination of Trump




Guess they haven't learned anything from the demise of Kathy Giffin. 
 
You have to wonder in the entertainment world is anyone capable of putting a sentence together, or staging a play, which does not include the seemingly mandatory Trump bashing?


Remember this one?

Death of a President - Bush

Delta Air Lines and Bank of America yanked their sponsorships of New York’s Public Theater on Sunday over its controversial staging of “Julius Caesar” — which features a Donald Trump look-alike playing the role of the assassinated title character.

The free Shakespeare in the Park play has sparked outrage with its grisly portrayal of the president and bloody climax.

The characters onstage wear regular clothes throughout the outdoor production and stab a blond, suit and tie-clad Caesar to death to close out the show.

“No matter what your political stance may be, the graphic staging of Julius Caesar at this summer’s Free Shakespeare in the Park does not reflect Delta Air Lines’ values,” the company said in a statement, ending it’s four-year run as the official airline of the Public Theater

“Their artistic and creative direction crossed the line on the standards of good taste,” they added. “We have notified them of our decision to end our sponsorship as the official airline of The Public Theater effective immediately.”

Bank of America, which has sponsored the outdoor venue for the past 11 years, also blasted the nonprofit in a statement Sunday.

“The Public Theater chose to present ‘Julius Caesar’ in a way that was intended to provoke and offend,” a spokesperson said. “Had this intention been made known to us, we would have decided not to sponsor it. We are withdrawing our funding for this production.”

The Public Theater’s rendition of Julius Caser, which runs until June 18, also reimagines the Roman leader’s wife as Melania Trump.

“I wonder how much of this ‘art’ is funded by taxpayers?” Donald Trump Jr. tweeted Sunday morning, in response to the depictions of the first lady and his dad.

“Serious question, when does ‘art’ become political speech & does that change things?” he said.

Delta’s announcement came just hours before members of the Public Theater gathered for the Tony Awards — and roughly two weeks after Kathy Griffin’s severed head stunt.

Social media users had been urging the airline to pull out for days.

“Cancelled [flight] reservations,” wrote one Twitter user, who was outraged by Delta’s sponsorship. “Julius Caesar is shameful. Have integrity support @realDonaldTrump.”

Getting Real






And the 'Russians' who tried to rig the election...



Got away with it.

Trusting the most scandal ridden president of all time




A former federal prosecutor, Comey testified that he took detailed notes of his private talks with the president – a departure from his practice with Trump’s predecessor, President Barack Obama. Comey said he did so because he was “honestly concerned” that the president might lie about what had been said in their meeting.


How it should have went down:











On a side note:

Why is "Hoping you can let this go" such a big deal? 

Yet, Lynch instructing Comey to drop the term 'criminal investigation' and call it a 'matter' gets swept under the rug. Considering this new revelation, and the fact she met Bill on the tarmac, undeniable collusion, when will she appear at a Congressional hearing?

Trump Russia Connection my ass!

The real story is Obama, Lynch, Rice, and the Clinton's tried to rig the election, not the Russians.


Getting back to Comey. A while back Trey Gowdy was grilling him on the WH leaks. Now we find out Comey was part of the problem, not the solution!

Only at NPR...





Could you be considered a "right-wing extremist" because you're against Sharia Law which goes against everything the Constitution stands for.

'March Against Sharia' Planned Across The U.S.

Saturday's nationwide "March Against Sharia," sponsored by a group known for aggressively criticizing Islam, has in recent days become a rallying cause for right-wing extremists, forcing march organizers to repudiate some of their own supporters and prompting concern about clashes with militant leftists.

The marches, due to be held in at least 19 states, are being coordinated by ACT for America, a conservative grassroots organization that calls itself "the NRA of national security." The group has a long history of opposing Sharia, which is a legal or philosophical code derived from Islamic scripture and meant to guide the behavior of observant Muslims.

The ACT for America organizers say an adherence to Sharia among Muslims leads to abuses against women, from discrimination to honor killings.

The national coordinator of the marches, Scott Presler, is a 29-year-old Republican operative who says he, as a gay man, was first motivated to fight Muslim extremism after the deadly Orlando shooting last June.

The target in Orlando was a gay nightclub and the perpetrator allegedly pledged loyalty to ISIS. To Presler, it highlighted a problem of anti-gay bigotry in orthodox Islam.

"This was born on the Internet, from me sending out a Twitter post saying, 'Hey, I would love to do a rally, who wants to help?'" Presler told NPR. The query, he said, prompted responses from conservative activists across the country. "My email has just been pummeled with activity."

Among those who answered Presler's call is Denise Zamora. She offered to organize a march in San Bernardino, Calif, at the site of the 2015 mass shooting carried out by a Pakistani-American and his wife.

"I wasn't even familiar with anything about Sharia law," she told NPR. "I didn't know much about radical Muslims or jihad. I wasn't educated. So I started learning about everything, and when ACT for America announced they were going to do a nationwide march, I quickly volunteered."

Zamora, whose political activism began with her involvement in the Trump presidential campaign, says the San Bernardino rally, like others around the country, will highlight the problem of female genital mutilation. The practice is common in some conservative Muslim societies, but many Islamic scholars insist it is not mandated under Sharia law.

Really...remember Ayaan Hirsi Ali?

Presler, the nationwide organizer, hopes the marches will attract broad participation. "These are things that all women should support," he said.

The movement, however, appears to be in danger of veering in an extremist direction. ACT for America has a militant attitude toward Islam, and comments on Facebook suggest the marches are attracting many far-right sympathizers, including several who decorate their posts with Confederate flags.

In Arkansas, a march was organized by Billy Roper, an avowed white supremacist.

"We want to send a message to Muslims that they are not welcome in our communities," Roper said in a podcast on Wednesday. "We want to send a message to Muslims that they're not welcome in our state. And ultimately we want to send a message to Muslims that they're not welcome in our nation and, of course, endgame, on our planet."

Roper specifically encouraged "white nationalists" to attend the marches and noted they could bring weapons to those rallies where "open carry" gun laws are in effect.

Such extremism alarmed the ACT for America leadership. After his podcast, the group severed ties with Roper and put out a statement that the Arkansas march was cancelled "when we became aware that the organizer is associated with white supremacist groups. This is against all of our values."

Roper's wife, however, posted screenshots of prior emails between Presler and Roper, including one showing Presler telling Roper, "You are approved and ready to go." Asked about that communication, Presler said only that the Arkansas march was cancelled "as soon as the information revealed itself."

Militant "anti-fascist" or "antifa" groups, however, had meanwhile promised to show up at anti-Sharia rallies to confront the marchers, and right-wing paramilitary groups such as the Three Percenters, Proud Boys, and Oath Keepers were arranging to provide security at the rallies, setting the stage for violent confrontations.

Those organizations have previously clashed with "antifa" groups in Berkeley, Calif., and Portland, Ore., though Oath Keepers president Stewart Rhodes told NPR his members only engage the counter-protesters when the police fail to keep the two sides separated.

"Where the police stand up, we'll stand down," Rhodes said. "But where they stand down, we have to stand up."

Rhodes declined to say which marches will be secured by Oath Keeper volunteers, many of whom have law enforcement or military backgrounds, though they are expected at several locations. "We're encouraging our members to go to each and every one of them," Rhodes said.

The Oath Keepers website says members promise to support the U.S. Constitution "against all enemies, foreign and domestic," and pledge to disobey any order they consider unconstitutional.

The prospect of violent confrontations at the anti-Sharia marches have local law enforcement authorities on edge. In San Bernardino, an "antifa" group has posted signs at the site of the march, urging activists to confront the marchers. A police spokesman says the department will be monitoring both sides for any signs of trouble.
