There’s nothing like the hypocrisy and the stupidity of the left. Last night, the cast of the musical Hamilton insulted the VP Elect, Mike Pence while he was in attendance. Wow, liberals are just such lousy losers. However, this is typical for their ilk. It not only shows their continued poor behavior but the extreme hypocrisy of liberalism.

According to the loony left, one of the mortal sins of the right is the crime of cultural appropriation. Lets provide an explanation of a concept that only a nutcase from the liberal fringe could come up with.

According to Wiki the definition is as follows.

Cultural appropriation is the adoption or use of elements of one culture by members of another culture. Cultural appropriation is seen by some as controversial and even harmful, notably when the cultural property of a minority group is used by members of the dominant culture without the consent of the members of the originating culture; this is seen as misappropriation and a violation of intellectual property rights.

Intellectual property? No shizer? So I need permission? Really? We have a deal here. I’ll give up jazz music, hip-hop and breakfast tacos. Hell, I’ll even throw in fried chicken, tamales and anything made with tortillas. You guys on the other hand can give up just about everything else. That means for you minority libs every important technological advance will be gone. You can go back to living in a grass hut with a bone in your nose or on some Jefe’s hacienda as an illiterate peasant with Sundays and Holy Days off. (If you’re lucky) Cell phones will be gone and you’ll be using smoke signals, bongo drums or just yelling real loud.

But back to “Hamilton.” For those of you who don’t know or even care, “Hamilton” is a historically inaccurate Broadway Musical about the life of Alexander Hamilton, written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, a native New Yorker and of Puerto Rican descent. The play was inspired and based loosely upon the biography “ Alexander Hamilton” authored by Ron Chernow.

The big thing about the musical is that “actors of color” play most of the major characters with Miranda in the title role. (He’s recently moved on and is no longer acting in the play) He says the fact the characters are not historically accurate does not “demand a suspension from reality.” He further states “Our cast looks like America looks now and that’s certainly intentional.” He also noted, we’re telling the story of old, dead white men but we’re using actors of color, and that makes the story more immediate and more accessible to a contemporary audience.”

Can someone explain to me what the above word salad means in anything even modestly coherent?

Here’s a huge newsflash Lin. Your production really does demand a suspension from reality. Besides not being historically accurate you’ve committed quite a bit of cultural appropriation here and done it without permission. However, you’re a liberal and in your world you probably feel entitled. Lets face it, this musical is nothing more than a gimmick, much like a pet rock or beanie babies. You knew your audience and that there was no way this concept was going to fail. You could have done a musical version of “The Three Stooges on Mars” using actors of color and it would have sold. There was no way the loony tune left would have said anything to denigrate a play that shows nothing if not a complete lack of originality.

But I have to hand it to you Lin, it is quite a scam and I expect you to do it again and again. The only problem I have is that your version of cultural appropriation lends itself to historical revisionism. That’s probably your real goal. Pretty soon the history books will change and a lot of people will actually think that George Washington was Black and Alexander Hamilton was from San Juan. Hell, Common Core will probably encourage it.

I also want you closely examine the people in the second caption pic. This is the crew of Apollo 11, the men of the first moon mission. Take a good long look at them. I’m sure in your version of the first lunar landing Snoop Dog will play Neil Armstrong and Pitt Bull will be cast as Werner Von Braun. But many of us will know the truth and keep it alive despite your misguided attempts at changing history. The liberal left would have trouble setting off a bottle rocket, much less landing on another planet. Just remember that Hamilton just got a whole less popular and there’s a lot of people out there who aren’t going to be interested in whatever “cultural appropriation” you have coming down the pike.

  1. I have ZERO interest in anything these actors you mentioned do. PERIOD.
    I call it a negro parody.

  2. Cultural Appropriation in itself is a direct slanderous insult towards white culture. The idea in its origin is that whites are incapable of creative thought, artistic expression and even technological advancedment. Whites don’t create, they steal and claim credit for the ideas of others, namely none whites. One example I remember from my collage days is the Lightbulb Conspiracy which claims Tomas Edison stole the drafts of the lightbulb invention from a black inventor named Lewis Latimer. I really don’t want to get too far into it but that’s just one example.

    Anyway, this is the facts of the definition of Cultural Appropriation without all the collage jargon and jibber-jabber.

    But anyway, it’s an effective tactic in making whites feel ashamed and force themselves to say that they are inferior before other races. Reverse racism if you will.

    Just another pile of PC-BS stinking up America and the rest of the world if you ask me.

    As for the stage play…I’m really not into plays unless one of the actors shows up stoned, drunk and turns the drama into a wild comedy! 😛

  3. Alexander Hamilton was born in the British West Indies and immigrated to the American colonies to get his education; and to give back his learned skills in statesmanship, and financial advice. He was noticed by and became a confidant to George Washington, and became the first Secretary of the Treasury. Mr. Hamilton fell in love with the fledgling and exceptional American dream.

    Marquis de Lafayette did not immigrate to the American colonies, but fell in love with the fledgling and exceptional American dream from France, and came to help fight with Washington all the way to Yorktown. In the Broadway musical, Lafayette sings the praises that the job was done by the immigrants. This caused the liberals in the audience to squeal with delight to further harass Mike Pence at the theater.

    Both men came to America to love it, support it and to make it better than before. Most immigrants in the next 200 years did the same. Allowing illegal immigrants into the country, especially in the past eight years, just to grab and not give back will not make America better.

    The diversity of the American revolution had one universal truth: a love and bond for the survival of the new nation. Today’s diversity is tearing the people and the nation apart. Assimilation is the key to a strong America.

    Immigration and diversity are more examples of liberals living in a parallel universe. Assimilation is not found there.

  4. Another winner by Quartier, good stuff.

    But I am going to be vindictive anyway. Mike Pence got what he deserved. He shouldn’t have spent good money to go see Googles denigrate his cultural history.

    They hate us, why pretend that it is O.K. Mr. Pence? Remember what happened to Mr. Lincoln last time he went to the theater.

    I suggest Mike spend more time listening to Mr. Bannon and reading Quartiers post on self defense and concealed carry if he is going to virtue signal around those who hate the color of his skin.

    First dumb thing from the Trump crew… They better not get comfortable, we are still watching

  5. I wouldn’t attend a “Hamilton” performance if someone paid me $1,000 in addition to free tickets. The idea of blacks portraying the Founding Fathers is aborrent to me.

  6. I’m working on a play right now that I hope to get funding for. The play is called “Martin” and it is an adaption of the life of Martin Luther King. I’m hoping to have Tom Selleck play the title role, with Patricia Heaton as Mrs. King. James Woods will be Jessie Jackson, and the shooter will be played by Samuel L Jackson.
    Think I’ll have any luck with this project?

  7. “Our show sucks, is no longer popular, and we have to do SOMETHING for an attention grab!”

    That’s all, folks…

  8. Plus the guy from the State Farm commercials…he has to be in everything now too. Can anyone think of the perfect role for him?

  9. and always when they have the numbers. Real brave.

  10. Disgusted Caucasian

    Wow…I have three points to make about this thread;
    First – I thought Mike Pence was smarter than to pay several hundred dollars to watch a bunch of talentless, leftist coons dump their Leninist droppings all over our founding.
    Second – The groids in Continental Army uniforms…pictures do say one thousand words. However, it is indeed a pity that I can’t say 990 of them here.
    Third – AWD has to be the racist xenophobe of the century for reminding us that the Apollo missions were accomplished without so much as one groid in the room. Shame AWD…shame…shame…shame.

  11. Cooter Brown

    I would say the cast of Hammilton acted Niggardly.

  12. Cooter Brown

    I would say the cast of Hammilton acted Niggardly!

    Word origins. “Niggardly” (noun: “niggard”) is an adjective meaning “stingy” or “miserly”. It can be traced back at least to the Middle English word nigon, which has the same meaning, and is perhaps related to the Old Norse verb nigla, which means “to fuss about small matters”.

  13. I used to subscribe to a number of Broadway oriented mailing lists. Recently I unsubscribed from all of them. One of them brought me to a “sorry to see you go, please tell us why” page. I put in a one-word explanation: Hamilton.
