BREAKING: Right-Wing Activists Jack Posobiec and Laura Loomer Rush Stage, Disrupt Controversial Rendition of ‘Julius Caesar’
June 17 Two people who disrupted a controversial NY production of Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar" took to social media on Saturday to defend their protest of the performance that portrays the assassinated Roman leader with an actor costumed to resemble U.S. President Donald Trump.
Loomer, 24, was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and criminal trespass. She and Posobiec have contributed to The Rebel Media, a right-wing website.
She was released but asked to appear in court to respond to the charges at a later date. "This is unacceptable. this is violent!"
"The blood of Steve Scalise is on your hands", Posobiec said, in reference to the congressman shot by a gunman during congressional baseball practice Wednesday.
Because the 400-year-old play sees Julius Caesar assassinated by members of the Roman Senate - and thus, in this production, it's the Trump-esque figure who meets an untimely demise - the Public Theater's staging has drawn condemnation from news outlets such as Breitbart and Fox News and lost the support of two corporate sponsors as a result. Teagle F. Bougere, center right, plays as Casca and Elizabeth Marvel, right, as Marc Anthony.
In a statement, the Public Theater said the show was stopped for "less than a minute" and credited Public Theater stage manager for handling the incident "beautifully". The staff removed the protesters peacefully, and the show resumed with the line "Liberty!"
"Today we took the fight for free speech to the heart of left-wing terrorist radicalization", Posobiec told TheDC. Indeed, quite the opposite: the gory stabbing of Caesar-Trump (subtly played by Gregg Henry) was horrific, eliciting audible gasps from the crowd; a woman sitting near me covered her face.
