THE ABSURD TIMES — STILL

The Trump Caliphate

THE ABSURD TIMES

Hamilton

We have to pause our program to establish corrections in the Democratic Party for awhile. First of all, almost every single one of them is so self-centered and self-serving that they would never organize themselves properly anyway, and second because the Trump Caliphate is starting to form.

It is not unlike ISIS, based on ignorance, bias, and prejudice. The most obvious and latest one is the demand by Herr Donald that the cast of Hamilton apologize for the negative reception Mike Pence received when he attended the Broadway musical. Actually, Brandon, one of the main actors, actually gave a rather mild speech urging inclusiveness.

The vulgar masses of Trumpites, in an amazing display of ignorance, started a campaign to #boycottHamilton. Obviously, none of them know a damn thing about Broadway, and we seriously doubt that any could name a Tony Award winner, of any time. We even doubt that they know what a Tony award is. Surely, someone could have told at least one of them that the play was sold out for a year in advance, but still they went ahead. Twitter is now filled with people offering to purchase the offending tickets from Trumpites if they had tickets to sell.

The stage was once a place where ideas were placed on display: Ibsen, Shaw, Strindberg, Miller, Williams, and so on used it more as a church of the present (as it was in it’s origins in ancient Greece), but it has degenerated to the level of Cats (based on a T. S. Eliot poem) down to Annie (based on a comic book) and so on down. Hamilton is a musical of some minor interest and, as such, show a bit of an improvement – even though it is still not quite Eugene O’Niel.

Just a snapshot of what is still going on and no, I’m not going to explain the empty spots:

The guy who harassed Obama about his birth cert for years is whining about a lecture from theater kids. #boycottHamilton

#BoycottHamilton the sad part is that a large number of these people have been deluded by a vehemently anti Trump media and believe a lie.

I think the immature publicity stunt put on by the cast of Hamilton and this #BoycottHamilton hashtag are both a waste of America’s time

If #BoycottHamilton is anything like the Starbucks protest, then ticket sales must be skyrocketing.
