Two protesters interrupted the play Julius Caesar in New York’s Central Park to condemn violent leftist rhetoric against President Trump and his supporters.
Rebel TV’s Laura Loomer was arrested after rushing the stage during a scene where a Trump lookalike is stabbed and assassinated. “Stop leftist violence!” she urged before being yanked off stage by security.
“Stop the normalization of political violence against the right! This is unacceptable. You cannot promote this kind of violence against Donald Trump. Shame on the New York City Public Theater for doing this!”
Loomer, 24, was charged with criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct. Laura was released on bail and tweeted that she’s not sorry for what she did because she categorically condemns the political violence that has escalated on the left in recent months.
The other protester, Jack Posobiec, captured Loomer’s arrest on video while shouting, “The blood of Steve Scalise is on your hands!” He was escorted out of the theater but was not arrested.
Posobiec was referencing the shooting of Congressman Steve Scalise, who was gunned down this week by leftist assassin James Hodgkinson at a baseball practice. Scalise remains in the hospital in critical condition after narrowly escaping death.
Posobiec yelled to the booing crowd in Central Park: “You are all Goebbels! You are all Nazis like Joseph Goebbels. You are inciting terrorists!” Goebbels was the minister of propaganda in Nazi Germany.

Here’s another angle of Laura Loomer’s arrest:
While all this unfolded, the liberal Manhattan crowd at the Delacorte Theater booed the protesters while cheering their removal from the stage.
The Central Park Theater’s rendition of “Julius Caesar” made headlines for its brutal on-stage assassination of a proxy for President Trump.
The play drew criticism for dialing up violent leftist propaganda against Trump amid widespread condemnation of comedian Kathy Griffin channeling an ISIS terrorist by holding up a severed head of the president.
Corporate sponsors Bank of America and American Express withdrew their funding of “Julius Caesar,” saying they do not condone violence.

The assassination attempts on Republican Congressmen earlier this week was the culmination of months of violent leftist propaganda by mainstream media and liberal celebrities, many of whom have called for Trump’s murder and violence against his supporters.
There have been an increasing number of assaults on Trump supporters around the country, much of which has gone ignored by mainstream media. Will liberals finally condemn leftist terrorism before more innocent people get hurt or killed?
Leftists are demented.
Mock Assassination of President Trump – GOOD!
Protesting Mock Assassination of President Trump – BAD!#FreeLaura

I wonder where the shooter got the idea to violently attack GOP…

This needs to happen every night, with dozens and dozens of protesters until this play is shut down.
