The adage “The show must go on” is often associated with the theater, but it’s origins actually go back to 19th century circuses.
Knowing that, the adage is still appropriate considering the recent protest circus sponsored by Rosie O’Donnell and her Broadway show troupe of progressive malcontents.
On August 6 Rosie and a horde of Broadway stars clustered in Lafayette Park across from the White House and protested President Trump and his policies – in song.
If those witnessing the event were hoping to hear protest classics such as “We Have Overcome,” “Revolution” or “This Land is Your Land,” they left sadly disappointed. Instead the protest featured show tunes from Les Miserables and The Sound of Music.
Nothing says we hate Trump like “Climb Every Mountain” and “Do You Hear the People Sing.”
Inspired by #KremlinAnnex, an ongoing series of grassroots Trump protests in response to Trump’s meeting with Vladimir Putin last month, O’Donnell thought it would be clever to fill a bus full of Broadway performers and protest the president by serenading the White House.
That’s not Broadway, it’s theater of the absurd.
In case those in attendance missed the gravity of the protest/musical, Rosie said this:
“Where we are as a nation, we have now till November to see whether or not democracy is going to survive.”
Note to Rosie: If America can survive pretentious protesters like you and musical company members from Hamilton and The Phantom of the Opera lecturing voters about what a liar and traitor our president is, it can survive anything.
To recap: a busload of Broadway performers, led by Queen of Never Trumpers Rosie O’Donnell, chose to protest a president who wasn’t there, charging him with crimes he never committed (treason), by singing tunes from classic Broadway shows, while accompanied by anonymous people in silly costumes.
Just another case of Trump Derangement Syndrome, but at least one you can dance to.
Thanks for reading Dean Riffs. Welcome to those who love American liberty, free enterprise, and who believe God has blessed our country. For those who believe in open borders, safe spaces, and who think free speech is hate speech, move on – there’s nothing here for you to see.
