There is simply no living with vibrancy, be it in the streets or in the theater.
Vice-president-elect Mike Pence, a self-confessed man of the people, was delivered a message directly from the cast of Hamilton – after earlier being booed by the audience on Friday night. As Pence made his way to his seat he was loudly booed. The jeering then got so bad that the performance had to be stopped repeatedly, according to audience members.The booing was most likely linked to Pence’s anti-LGBT stances throughout his political career, as well as Donald Trump’s election victory this month.
‘During “You’ll Be Back (Reprise)” they had to keep pausing the song while people jeered Pence on every line. “When your people say they hate you…” Fully stopped the song for a minute while people lost their s**t. Never seen anything like it,’ one audience member tweeted.
At the conclusion of the show, the cast delivered a message directly to Pence.
‘Vice-president-elect Pence we welcome you and truly thank you for joining us here,’ Brandon Dixon – who plays Aaron Burr – said on-stage. ‘We sir, we are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents, or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights.
‘But we truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us. All of us.’
Now, Pence appropriately maintained his sense of dignity and issued a vanilla statement about diversity when ambushed by the media afterwards. But it would have been nice if he had said: “You’re not Americans. Your values are not our values. You have to go back.” Of course, it probably would have caused a riot, as we all know what respect SJWs have for free speech. To them, free speech means they will lecture freely while you will sit there and dutifully nod your assent to the Narrative.
Regardless, the experience was likely a salient lesson and I tend to doubt that the Vice-President-elect is going to forget this lunacy any time soon. There is no negotiating, compromising, or living with the Diverse, who are not, have never been, and will never be, Americans, and who, like their immigrant forebears, are falsifying American history in an attempt to claim it for themselves.
They should be alarmed and anxious. They know that the Alt-Right will never accept them or negotiate with them, and that their days of pulling the wool over the eyes of conservatives are over.
