From alicublog’s latest expedition to the right wing fever swamps: Shakespeare in the Park is doing a production of Julius Caesar that features Caesar as a sort of tRumpish figure. Set phasers on Project.
“Insane ‘progressives’ are trying to provoke some brainwashed idiot follower into attempting what they themselves are regularly fantasizing about,” yammers The National Sentinel.
This sort of thing only happens on the left of course. Lone wolves, disturbed individuals and rugged Montanans are the ones who do things like harass people for speaking a language other than English, murder Bible study groups, travel a few hundred miles to shoot up a restaurant, kill some men who are trying to stop him from attacking girls, assault reporters, and so on and so on and so on.
“…When it happens, they will have blood on their hands and will have earned our enduring ire. And vengeance.” Wow, they’ve already planned out their retaliatory killing spree for the assassination plot they fantasized! That’s insane — but, you must admit, efficient.
Efficient, and effective. At least so far as justifying preemptive violence by certain people against certain other people who pose an imaginary threat, goes. For example, by screaming that the people involved in this play are trying to send secret messages that will transform liberal snowflakes into well-oiled killing machines.
In another example of the RW’s incredible powers of projection, one of the Innsmouth Kids had this to say about people who don’t bend the knee to his sire:
“I’ve never seen hatred like this,” he said on Fox News’s “Hannity” Tuesday night. “To me, they’re not even people. It’s so, so sad. Morality’s just gone, morals have flown out the window and we deserve so much better than this as a country.”
Sure, Mr. Limpet. It’s all on the nasty Democrats.
As an aside, the RW reaction to the play contains their disregard for things chronological order, which may be related to their problem with cause and effect.
“First, it was Kathy Griffin’s brutal depiction of herself holding a bloody severed head of President Donald Trump; now New York’s Shakespeare in the Park” etc., bandwagons Newsmax. “Week After Kathy Griffin ‘Beheads’ Trump, He Is ‘Stabbed To Death’ In NY Play,” scrawls SarahPalin.com.
The play opened first.
