New York (Storch Report) — The act was Rude, Disrespectful, Immature, and typical of a Trophy generation that is used to getting its way and when it doesn’t it plays the race card of a liberal progressive and follows playbook 101 of the Democratic Party Inappropriately taking advantage of an opportune moment in time.
The audience that came to see Hamilton on Friday Nov. 18 at the Richard Rogers Theater didn’t pay between $200 and $849 a seat to hear a concluding not so veiled lecture with racial overtones from Brandon Victor Dixon, the actor who played Aron Burr with cast behind him, addressing the incoming administration because VP-elect Mike Pence was in the audience.
The cast was informed 30 minutes before the performance that VP-elect and company would be in the audience. The statement, which was to be delivered by Dixon, was written by Hamilton’s director Thomas Kail, and lead producer, Jeffrey Seller, according to the New York Times — the publicity arm of the Democratic Party.
It was unfortunate that the Times did not warn the cast of Hamilton before the election of November 8th that Trump was likely to win because they were so much in the tank for Hillary Clinton that they failed to see the diversity vein that the Trump-Pence team tapped into to represent All of the People in America and handily win the election. Had they accurately reported what was happening — which they have since apologized for to subscribers — Dixon and cast might not be as ‘alarmed and anxious’ about the incoming administration.
The crux of Dixon’s message in behalf of Hamilton was: “Vice President-elect Pence, we welcome you and we truly thank you for joining us here at Hamilton: An American Musical, we really do. 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, sir. But we truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us. All of us.
“Again, we truly thank you for sharing this show. This wonderful American story told by a diverse group of men and women of different colors, creeds, and orientations.”
VP-elect Pence left promptly, as is usually the case with Presidents and VP’s in such situations, but he did graciously stop and listen to the message.
It might be worth noting that when President Obama attended a performance of Hamilton he was warmly welcomed and given a speaking platform following the performance, likewise with Hillary Clinton where there were a plethora of photo ops.
This was a rude, disrespectful, immature and not-so thinly veiled performance of racial messages, so typical, but inappropriate of liberal progressives.
