Andrew Cummings | 18 June, 2017, 02:22

Shouting, "Stop the normalization of political violence against the right", and, "This is violence against Donald Trump" as a confederate videotaped the scene from the audience, Laura Loomer was booed and shouted down by audience members, who promptly tweeted and Instagrammed the event as she was removed from the theater by security guards and arrested.

The murder-porn remake of Julius Caesar is just the latest attempt to normalize violence against conservatives.

Members of the audience shouted at Loomer to "get off the stage", while a voice announced that the show would be paused and called for security.

Loomer continued her rant outside the theater, as she refused to step away from the building.

President Donald Trump delivers a statement about the shooting at a congressional baseball practice, speaking from the White House on June 14. "The rhetoric has been outrageous: The finger-pointing, the tone, the angst and the anger directed at Donald Trump", complained Chris Collins, a Republican representative from NY. For those who don't know, there were protests at the play last night in Central Park.

At that point, prominent pro-Trump activist Jack Posobiec chimed in from his seat that the audience was equivalent to Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's propaganda minister, adding that they were inciting terrorism and that the blood of Steve Scalise "is on your hands". Some Trump supporters lionized Loomer for publicly disrupting a staged representation of political violence, while many on the left pointed to one of the other high-profile stories of the night, which centered on actual violence, in the real world. She was charged with criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct. Freedom!' The audience rose to their feet to thank the actors, and we joyfully continued. Bank of America and Delta both pulled their support from the play after hearing about its politically-charged portrayal. President Trump was stabbed again and again and the crowd cheered.

The director Eustis said that the performance had been stopped for "less than a minute" due to the protests and that the show had resumed on the line "Liberty!"
