Can we all agree that we support free speech even if it's "reckless" and that the fake outrage is coming from both sides?


Absolutely...as long as it isn't on campus.

Antifa disagrees with you.

Who is Brutus? Hillary?


It's kind of funny because the guy who plays Brutus reminds me of Paul Ryan.

This is a can of worms the left will regret opening up.

They've been preaching against hate and violence for decades and now they are the ones promoting it in the mainstream. They go out and riot, burn down schools, attack Trump supporters, call for the death of political leaders and claim "free speech" while actively trying to silence other peoples opinions. And the media is complicit in this.

They are setting the bar for political confrontation, don't be surprised when it blows up in their face.

I remember the controversy over that mini-series. The scene was cut from the movie version.

The executive producers were Mark Burnett and Roma Downey, who happen to be very good friends with Trump. I'm not saying Trump had anything to do with that but interesting. No way that the actor cast in the role as the devil just happened to look like Obama as they claimed.

What a class act.
Performance acting/art has
dug itself an even deeper hole.

When they wake up tomorrow,
they will realize just how much it stinks
down there in the rat infested Cucaracha
grease trap.

Go ahead, bite the big apple...don't mind the maggots.

See. Thanks for proving my point. The fake outrages are coming from both sides.

an old play whose characters have been renamed and the settings changed slightly for the sake of publicity

I agree with your post in general but it's worth pointing out that:

1. The names have not been changed. Caesar is still Ceasar, his wife is still Calpurnia, etc. This is Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, unaltered.

2. Shakespeare in modern dress is actually a very common director's gambit. I have watched more than one such production myself. Hence it has no publicity value; rather, it is normally used to make an artistic or political statement. That is the case here.

I am pleased to see the authoritarianists of ATS so discomfited by this. It shows that great art still retains its power to disturb, and proves yet again the timelessness of Shakespeare's genius.

Perhaps not coincidentally. If and when the time comes for Trump's political quietus, it will be Ryan who must marshal the conspirators, and his presence among them will give their action the necessary legitimacy.

Ya know,seems on social media sites I see protestors from supposed colleges and university's,and virtually all of them are idiots,asking for free college,what I'm wondering is with the push of student loans was this another social engineering project a haven for loser kids to go not having to work,a group of socially inept individual's to form together,sure sounding like that to me,professors teaching a socialist agenda,I know the elite want to incite civil war they have been really trying last 8 years,civil war,already have patriot act in place,another guise from the staged 911,look back the last 20 or so years,playing out like a Harlequin novel,they are relentless won't stop till they get their way

Delta Airlines and Bank of America just pulled their sponsorship of the play.

Can anyone verify that the NYT was involved in the production of this play? I heard something about this today.

Liberal insanity?? LOL

Where was the outrage by the right-wing when a 2012 production of Julius Caesar had—wait for it—a black man as Caesar. Of course there was none, because it was an allusion to a democrat, Obama....

Obama’s Ides Of March: The Acting Company Production of Julius Caesar

Gotta love the hypocritical outrage.

Yes, them and AMEX.

Plus they get all that nice taxpayer money.

Yes, apparently they get $30m of tax payer funding to push their politics for one side... though we know Obama was adept at using tax payer funding to line the pockets of liberal activists both in America and beyond.
