BREAKING Right Wing Activists Jack Posobiec and Laura Loomer Rush Stage Disrupt Controversial Rendition of ‘Julius Caesar

A woman has been arrested after storming the stage at a U.S. production of Shakespeare's Julius Ceasar and yelling, "Do you want Trump to be assassinated?" when a character that resembled the United States president was killed off.

The NYPD charged Loomer, who works for Canada-based Rebel Media, with disorderly conduct and trespassing.

Loomer has been released after her arrest.

"Julius Ceasar Gets SHUTDOWN", Posobiec tweeted along with a video of the stunt, which showed Loomer shouting "Stop the normalization of political violence against the right!" as she marched on-stage. "This is unacceptable. this is violent!"

Boos rain down on the woman as security guards escort her off stage, followed by a round of applause when she's gone.

The protester later identified himself online, where he posted the video, as Jack Posobiec, who wrote a book called "Citizens for Trump". While Loomer was taken outside of the open air theater, he stood and shouted down the rest of the crowd, immediately invoking Godwin's law comparing them to Nazi propaganda master Joseph Goebbels.

The one-way traffic continued after the break, Marinovic denying Poloz and Aleksandr Erokhin with a fine double save. Bigger tests await - both in the short and long-term - but this was a very small step in the right direction.

"The blood of Steve Scalise is on your hands", Posobiec continued, referencing House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, who was shot Wednesday at an Alexandria, Va., park where the congressman was practicing for a congressional baseball game.

Police say Laura Loomer, 24, was arrested on Friday evening [Saturday NZ Time] during the production presented in Central Park by the New York Public Theatre. Teagle F. Bougere, center right, plays as Casca and Elizabeth Marvel, right, as Marc Anthony.

"We stopped the show for less than a minute and our stage manager handled it beautifully", he said, in part, via The Daily Beast. The staff removed the protesters peacefully, and the show resumed with the line 'Liberty! "Freedom!" The audience rose to their feet to thank the actors, and we joyfully continued.

"Today we took the fight for free speech to the heart of left-wing terrorist radicalization", Posobiec told TheDC.

Delta and Bank of America both pulled their sponsorship of the Public Theater, which is known for its edgy, modern productions.

But as many Shakespeare fans and scholars have been pointing out since the outrage over the Public Theater's Trump-tinged Julius Caesar first began to draw criticism, Julius Caesar is an inherently political play with warnings for everyone - and one that specifically implores those who commit political violence, even in service of their country, to consider the futility of their actions.
