Which is a bigger assault on decency?
Those who come up with evil? Or those who pay those who come up with it?
If it’s the latter, hold your horses people, because that’s you and me.
Elizabeth Harrington reports in the Washington Free Beacon that the funding behind the pathetic assassination play depicting Donald Trump being stabbed graphically to death in front of his distraught wife, didn’t get shut down.
It got rewarded.
Since 2009 the same creators have raked in $30 million dollars from federal, state, and city grants.
The National Endowment for the Arts–which should have been removed from the tax-payer dole years ago–is awarding the Public Theater of New York with a six figure endowment for next season.
Evidently NEA doesn’t have the wisdom that Delta Airlines and Bank of America both had, which was to steer its name clear of productions that are comfortable with graphic depiction of assassinating the lawfully & overwhelmingly elected (33 of 50 states) President of the United States.
The production falls in line with a series of more than 40 attacks on either the President or members of his party that were either desired, articulated, or graphically carried out. This idea of killing or grossly injuring those you simply disagree with politically is also encouraging additional coarsening towards violence in the society at large.
Every step down this rabbit hole of justifiable violence brings a free people closer to the reality where people take circumstances into their own hands because of such failed leadership.
The fact that the federal government finds itself funding such trash is despicable, doing so in such a way that lends itself to our own destruction is something people of all philosophical and political persuasions should be aggressively pushing back against.
