The play's creators, actors and producers will likely now be blacklisted (pun intended) for pushing racist and white supremacist propaganda.



Or....the AP's (Appeasement Puzzies) could give back all the Tony awards they won, including the Best Musical one. I know! They could throw all 11 of the Tony awards into a big pile, throw paint on them, then pour gasoline on them, then torch them while running around and screaming, "Hamilton Shmamilton"!!

~~sarcasm (I better explain my "suggestion" lest someone actually think I'm serious. Too many people have lost their ability to reason and comprehend.)

I'd ask how long it took you to think that one up, but no.

This attempt to whitewash history is reaching the point of absurdity. But, whatever.

And they can get Dave Chappelle to play Gene Wilders part.

Be careful throwing around words like "whitewash", you could be cancelled next.

I'm hoping they remake Blazing Saddles.

Robert Downey Jr. can play the Cleavon Little character for maximum salt production.


That would be great. Though I would have Terry Crew as Cleavon Little and Robert Downey jr as the Waco kid.

My wife cousin told me that when I was using the term black when talking to a friend over the phone. He was a member of the Black Panthers back in the day, so yeah. I told her that I've already been cancelled a long time ago and now I'm just a cult classic.

Leftists aren't being critical of themselves.

They're mentally ill and stupid and can't figure out what they believe.

They're pretty sure communism works though.

Funny how that works isn't it: "Everyone thinks Communism works except those that lived under it"

Hmmm...it appears the Leftist cancel culture is beginning to eat it's own.



The hashtag #CancelHamilton trended over the weekend, just after a film version of the show aired on Disney+.

Some on social media argued that the founding father was a slave trader and shouldn't have gotten such a positive depiction in the musical. The musical's creator and star Lin Manuel Miranda defended as well as criticized the show on Instagram. Thomas Jefferson, who is also depicted in the musical, was an enslaver who fathered six children with Sally Hemings, one of the women he enslaved.

www.msn.com...

Full disclosure...I've never forked over the $52,000 bucks for tickets...but I know this Broadway Musical is a fav of the Left and the Hollywood crowd.
Unfortunately for the play...it's cast of characters is chockful of slaveowners...so, now, all of a sudden...the alt-Left just hates it...and demands it be #CANCELLED!

The play's creators, actors and producers will likely now be blacklisted (pun intended) for pushing racist and white supremacist propaganda.



Wasn't much of a trend. Here's Twitter Trending: trends24.in...

Didn't make much of a splash: twitter.com...

Not a blip this past week: adage.com...

Here's a quote from the conservative news source, The Hill: thehill.com...



But while some people have tweeted with the hashtag, "CancelHamilton," the call has not gained much traction on Twitter or other forms of social media. In fact, many of the top Tweets using the hashtag were either reporting on or actively criticizing the sentiment behind it.


So it's misleading to see it as a "movement" or even as "cancel culture" (clearly failed) or even having much of an impact.

What a miserable existence it must be to wake every morning and look for something, anything to be offended by. These people need to grow up and stop acting like the big babies they are.

Historically this has happened before like in the French revolution they guillotined the royals then the leaders of the movement think rich alt-left of today. No one is safe with the shifting wokeness of theses basement radicals running the show and their foot soldiers.
