The Hamilton Hypocrisy

Leave it to leftists to suck all the fun out of our leisure activities.

Dystopic calls out the Social Justice Whiners (SJWs) for the Marxist intellectual posers (or poseurs) they are.

Proper spelling though doesn't stop the fun-sucking.

A few days ago VP-Elect Pence took his daughter to see the play Hamilton on Broadway.  Instead of being able to enjoy the performance in peace, he got booed by the audience and then lectured by the cast.

Pence reacted to the whole affair with greater aplomb than Gary Varvel's cartoon implies.

I'm more irked about this than outraged.  The cast, crew and audience certainly do have the right to speak their minds--even to an impending VP, which is one of the cool things that make America so great.

However, this incident illustrates urban elites just don't get it.

Nor was this past weekend's fun-sucking limited to Broadway.  The American Music Awards (AMA) show featured a hostess mocking Melania Trump.

Is America's First Super Model Lady above criticism, or even mockery?

Maybe, maybe not.  It depends on what the First Lady's done, or not done.

I've written several posts criticizing  Michelle Obama; while in the pre-Internet Era, I verbally slammed just about everything then-First Lady Hillary did and said.

Melania may be next.

The point is:  I wouldn't want to attend a play, watch a show, or play a game and then be force-fed some political-social discourse that I'm trying to escape from.

If I wanted that, I'd watch/read more news, or worse--write more blog posts.

Greg Gutfeld put it best: Hamilton stars violated the terms of service.

Mark Steyn touches on today's political-social tribalism, along with the lethal variety that exists outside the Ramparts of Civilization in his Going Ape Over the Monkey article.

In any case, Kurt Schlichter advises us to brace ourselves for four years of non-stop freakoutrage.

Humor may be our best weapon against the SJWs, like this People's Cube post about Our Soon To Be Ex Dear Leader pardoning the Hamilton cast for cultural appropriation.
