You Owe Me an Apology #Boycott Hamilton (Updated: Trump can not let it go)

Mike Pence attended a performance of Hamilton the musical. The audience booed him throughout and at the end Pence was given a stern lecture by "Aaron Burr" (Brandon Victor Dixon),
“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,” he said. “We truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us.”
Cue the Right-Wing Outrage! Donald Trump, himself, took time out of his looting the federal government, to demand an apology from the Cast and Theater which he described as being a safe space.

Now, while I could point out the hypocrisy of Trump demanding decorum after running a campaign on:
  • Trump Pence: Fuck Your Feelings.
  • Hillary Sucks. But, not Like Monica.
  • Trump that Bitch.
Or after explicitly stating Political Correctness was the cause of America's woes, while stoking the fires of angry white resentment. Or that Trump's supporters now believe they are unleashed to engage in campaigns of intimidation, harassment and violence towards "the other". Or that they same group which played revolutionary dress up for 6 years, threatened to bring their guns, portrayed President Obama as a witch doctor, a lying Kenyan (instead of a Kenyan Lion), and invented all sorts of scandals based on faux and fake news that would be a sisyphean task. Hypocrisy never found so ardent a follower than the American Conservative.

No what's more important is that the President-Elect of the United States, the most powerful person in the Federal Government, is demanding censorship of free speech.

Yes, yes a large swath of conservative wimps like Michelle Malkin, Newt Gingrich, and Eric Erickson RedState have jumped forward to demand the apology and #BoycottHamilton is trending amongst right-wingers but, who cares that group of cultural dilettantes were not going to go to rap musical with a minority cast.

Trump is going to be spewing forth this diarrhea for 4 years and with the power of the FBI and Department of Justice behind him, egged on by lame-ass conservative pussies I can't wait until the new House Un-American Committee is stood up.

Demanding an apology makes right-wingers look weak and ineffectual. Keep it up conservatives.

Update:
Donald Trump can not let it go. Trump tweeted that he hears Hamilton is overrated and reiterrated his demand they apologize. Meanwhile on Faux News, Judge Jeanine Pirro, suffering from 8 years of right-wing ammnesia, screeched Mike Pence must be respected and accepted and screamed the Hamilton cast should stick to "hip-hop" and "dance" and poor Pence was subjected to "out-and-out reverse racism".

We can clearly see Faux News will unflappably carry the torch for Trump and will readily engage in whipping up conseravtive drones into a fury to distract from Trump's failures and scandals. Because does anyone know Trump agreed to pay $25,000,000 for Fraud in the Trump University Case? Well, since there apparently weren't emailz involved the Media doesn't find it all that worrisome.

The next four years are going to be replete with fraud, theft, scandal, misery and death for Americans and the World.

You may disagree, I'm used to it, but the fact that the conservatives practiced obstructionism during Obama's administration does not make it right to now do the same in reverse. I would have hoped that liberals who are more educated than your average conservative could have behaved more maturely. Justifying bad behavior by using the excuse that paybacks a bitch in addition to self degradation it is not a winning argument .Not following the example of the conservatives would have shown the liberals behave better and given their arguments more merit.

Good for the cast. Pence needs to know that a significant portion of the American people think that he and Trump are assholes and don't like what they stand for.

And good for Trump tweeting his "concern". He just let all of America know the outrage that the cast expressed to Pence. Heaven knows that the media will not.

Well, several things mohaverat. The Democratic Party is going to play their assigned role and roll over and aid the Republicans and when things go to shit the media can play both sides are to blame. Second the Hamilton cast have the absolute right to chide, denounce, reprimand or insult Mike Pence or any other elected Republican. Lastly, politics isn't a gentlemanly game of cribbage Americans are going to suffer under Trump's Presidency.

Jerry C, no the media is falling all overthemselves to make Trump palatable as they aid him and the Republicans in shafting the very people who voted them in and all the rest of us along the way. And as we see, Trump sees no problem in the President demanding an apology from those who speak out against him.

Perhaps I phrased it poorly, but, G-e-G, I agree, "the media is falling all overthemselves to make Trump palatable ..."
