The play was Julius Caesar. By Shakespeare.
Delta believes firmly in the annexarion of Gaul and stands with the Julii.
Fine, so perhaps this adaption might have chosen some modern iconography. But it’s still a play about how stable governments fall apart very easily. Also it’s Trump so who gives a shit.
Oh cool, we’re normalizing censorship now. Great.
IT IS JULIUS FUCKING CAESAR. IT HAS BEEN ADAPTED FOR USE AS POLITICAL COMMENTARY EVERY GODDAMN TIME IT’S BEEN GODDAMN ADAPTED. THIS IS NOT NEW.
Considering Fox News didn’t say SHIT about people LITERALLY hanging and burning Obama in effigy they need to shut the fuck up about this. Also, it’s a fucking play adapted happens all the fucking time. Grow the hell up.
There have been depictions of Obama as Caesar, and not only did conservatives not care, they found it “riveting”.
This is the problem with being iconic. Motherfuckers try to use your messages and words for themselves, and then censor it when it doesn’t fit their narrative.
If the book Atlas Shrugged can get made into a fucking movie, and a member of congress can get elected even though they say that that book and film that punishes the poor and moralizes poverty is their favorite fucking work of fiction…you can believe they’re not going to like a play that is all about killing the person in power.
And I’m sorry, but that staging sounds awesome, and I’d love to see a Pence look-alike give the Mark Anthony “I came to bury Carsar” speech.
