A “Shakespeare in the Park” production of Julius Caesar by the Public Theater features a mock assassination of a President Donald Trump lookalike. Public Theater is sponsored by none other than The New York Times.
The play, a contemporary update on the original, does not refer to the president by name — but their Caesar character holds a striking resemblance to Trump and his wife to the First Lady.
“Shakespeare’s political masterpiece has never felt more contemporary,” the Public Theatre wrote of the play on their website. They describe the updated Caesar character as a “magnetic, populist, irreverent,” who “seems bent on absolute power.”
During the play, the Caesar character appears on stage fully nude — as well as tweeting from a bathtub — before being stabbed to death by senators as an American Flag stands beside them.
Who do theater-goers have to thank for this Trump-centric work? Here’s a passage from the “Corporate Partners” page on the Public Theater website (emphasis added):
“The Public Theater has cultivated successful ongoing partnerships with several leading corporations including Bank of America, Delta Air Lines, The New York Times, American Express, and others. We offer sponsorship opportunities which enhance awareness and visibility of your brand, targeted activations, and provide opportunities for client entertainment, unique experiences and exciting benefits for employees. Year-round, season, or program-specific sponsorships can include a multitude of customizable benefits based on a corporation’s needs and initiatives. Whether it’s entertaining clients at Free Shakespeare in the Park…”
The New York Times did not return a request for comment for this report as of press time.
“I always go to Shakespeare in the park, but I wasn’t expecting to see this,” Laura Sheaffer, who saw the play on Saturday, told Mediaite. “To be honest I thought it was shocking and distasteful. If this had happened to any other president — even as recently as Barack Obama or George W. Bush — it would not have flown. People would have been horrified.”
“I mean it was the on-stage murder of the president of the United States,” Sheaffer said.
The play, which opened on May 23, was directed by Oskar Eustis and features stage actor John Douglas Thompson and House of Cards actor Corey Stoll.
“Julius Caesar can be read as a warning parable to those who try to fight for democracy by undemocratic means,” Eustis wrote in a statement featured on the Public Theater’s website. “To fight the tyrant does not mean imitating him.”
The New York Times has had an extremely contentious relationship with President Trump, who refers to the newspaper as the “failing New York Times.”
On Thursday, former FBI Director James Comey confirmed that they had published fake news about the president while claiming to have information from an anonymous source regarding contact between members of the Trump campaign and Russian officials. “In the main, it was not true,” Comey said of their report.
Cultural Marxist Academic Proposes Abusing Children Based on Their Skin Color: ‘White Kids Don’t Deserve Innocence’
Tim Wise is a Jewish academic who traffics in white race hate.
Marxist academic Tim Wise appeared on CNN where he proposed subjecting white children to psychological torture, proclaiming that “white kids don’t deserve innocence.”
“I think that the important thing for white parents to keep in the front of our mind is that if black children in this country are not allowed innocence and childhood… Then our children don’t deserve innocence,” Wise said.
“If Tamir Rice can be killed, then white children need to be told at least at the same age that if they can’t be innocent, we can’t be innocent. And if we would keep that in the front of our minds, then perhaps we would be able to be hear what black and brown folks are telling us everyday and have been telling us for years,” he added.

While Wise likes to act as if he is a white person, he is ethnically Jewish and runs a hate racket, similar to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) or Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), in which he calls for white people to be destroyed and subjugated.
Wise has called for riots in the streets and the destruction of property for years, having begged for the type of chaos that has recently turned America into a war zone – with the death of serial felon George Floyd serving as an inflection point.
Wise has made his opinion clear that he wants white people to be destroyed and wiped from the planet. Some have called the goals of Wise and his fellow Marxist interlopers akin to a genocide.
He wrote in 2010:
The kind of math … proves how your kind — mostly older white folks beholden to an absurd, inaccurate, nostalgic fantasy of what America used to be like — are dying.
You’re like the bad guy in every horror movie ever made, who gets shot five times, or stabbed ten, or blown up twice, and who will eventually pass — even if it takes four sequels to make it happen — but who in the meantime keeps coming back around, grabbing at our ankles as we walk by, we having been mistakenly convinced that you were finally dead this time.
Fair enough, and have at it. But remember how this movie ends. Our ankles survive.
You do not.
He boasted in the same article about the demographic destruction of America, and noted that time was on his side as the the U.S. is flooded with the refuse of the third world:
We don’t need guns.
We just have to be patient.
And wait for your hearts to stop beating.
Do you hear it?
The sound of your empire dying? Your nation, as you knew it, ending, permanently?
Because I do, and the sound of its demise is beautiful.
So know this.
If you thought this election was payback for 2008, remember…
Payback, thy name is…
As the Trump administration classifies ANTIFA as a terror group and uses federal force to destroy them, they should consider expanding that classification to include academics like Wise whose genocidal ideology could result in the death of millions if it is not stomped out for the good of mankind.
