Michael Moore Gives Huge Donation To Theater Depicting Trumpís Assassination
The Daily Caller ^ | 06/27/17 | Katie Jerkovich

Michael Moore stepped up his attacks on President Donald Trump with a donation of $10,000 to the New York City Public Theater that produced the adaption of Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar” depicting the assassination of a Donald Trump-like character

“Right-wing media attacked free showings of Julius Caesar cause they said tone was ‘anti-Trump,'” the 63-year-old filmmaker tweeted Tuesday to his 4.92 million followers.

“So Bank of America & Delta dropped funding,” he added before tweeting, “So here’s my donation & sponsorship to The Public’s Shakespeare in the Park in support of their right to free speech.” He included a photo of his check to the theater.

Moore also encouraged others to follow his example and provided a link to his Facebook page about the donation that included a link to the site where they can donate.

“Please join me in supporting Shakespeare in the Park. Stand for free speech. Donate here: http://thepublic.nyc/support https://www.facebook.com/mmflint/posts/10154522944191857:0 …,” Moore tweeted.

“In a time like this, it is important that we stand up against any attempts to censor art or free expression, especially by denying this expression the funding that it needs,” Moore said. “As one who is about to stage my first theatrical event on Broadway, neither I nor anyone else in the theater should feel intimidated by what’s happened here or ever worry about how much control certain sponsors or investors have over our work.”

Michael Moore is an absolute jerk.

I am sure if it Obama instead of Trump being depicted in that play, then Moore would be freaking out.

Who has denied the producers of Shakespeare in the Park the right to free speech?

The entire left would be freaking out. The entire sanctimonious, hypocritical left would be freaking out.

The DNC would be freaking out, the media would be freaking out, Nancy and Michelle would be freaking out, Rachel and SNL would be freaking out.

The whole freaking liberal world would be extremely freaking out.

He should have spent the $10,000 to get some of that whale blubber removed.

Shakespeare is not the problem, but he shouldn’t be taught in the schools. If he’s good enough, people will find him without being assigned (forced) to read him.

Pphhggght..... Now why would anyone say the "tone" of the play was anti-Trump?

I find that to be a ridiculous statement. Not teach the greatest poet/dramatist in the English language? Should they just teach comic books and Maya Angelou instead?

President Trump has got to encourage the defunding of public radio and television, NEA, etc, by the taxpayers. These entities are getting more than enough money from wealthy leftists and shouldn't be receiving taxpayer funding when they are blatantly and openly biased against conservatives.
