By now just about everyone has heard about the drama surrounding Mike Pence when he went to see Hamilton. Here’s a refresher in case you missed it: Mike Pence and his family made an appearance at the theater only to get booed. Then a pompous, flaming actor trotted out onstage to lecture Pence’s ear off. I know, gay dudes and self importance? Hardly news in the world of theater.
The whole debacle was pretty cringeworthy. Not the time nor place, dude. News of the confrontation spread fast and everyone seemed offended by it, one way or the other. That is, everyone except Mike Pence…
“You know when we when we arrived, we heard a few boos. We heard some cheers. I nudged my kids and reminded them that’s what freedom sounds like. But at the end, I did hear what was said from the stage and I can tell you I wasn’t offended by what was said.”
Can we just take a moment to appreciate the awesomeness of Mike Pence? Kudos to the VP-elect for showing some poise and class while leftists opt for neither (see Woman Makes Up Fake Rape Story. Because She Was ‘Traumatized’ By Election… and WATCH: Crowder Mercilessly Mocks Anti-Trump Celebrity Meltdowns!) Pence is the complete antithesis to raging social justice warriors. It’s no wonder leftists hate him with the white-hot intensity of a thousand burning suns.
And when I say leftists hate him, that includes Brandon Victor Dixon, the actor who lectured Pence in the first place…
I could give a f**k about a dumb bully who has ALWAYS been honest about being a dumb bully. I’m enraged at the person who shakes my hand, hugs me while colluding with banks, corporate military, and fossil fuel earth ravagers, to line their pockets and the pockets of friends. This s**t makes me wanna burn them to the ground.
Ah, so in other words? No civility for Pence. Hence the cast of Hamilton choosing to be unwelcoming to a guest who had a different opinion. Rather than actually try to be tolerant, they opted to be rude, trifling, gutter imps instead. While demanding tolerance. And leftists will wonder why they lose everywhere except for New York City.
Though the ultimate irony in all this?
For the record, Alexander Hamilton was an immigration hawk who endorsed the Alien and Sedition Acts and wanted to deport troublemakers.

It all seems rather triggering.
Hey, speaking of triggers…
