On Friday night two protestors were removed from the controversial Shakespeare play after one rushed the stage and the other began chanting, the NY Post reports:
A woman was arrested after rushing the stage at the controversial production of ‘Julius Caesar’ in Central Park Friday night during a stunt live streamed on social media.
Laura Loomer, who works for the alt-right website The Rebel, ran onto the stage during the performance and was promptly dragged away and booed by the crowd.
As she interrupted the play, fellow blogger and conspiracy theorist Jack Posobiec filmed the disturbance while screaming “Goebbels would be proud” at the audience.
Police said the woman was charged with disorderly conduct and trespassing.
The duo apparently staged a protest because they were upset that the classic Shakespeare play depicts a US president similar to Donald Trump as Julius Caesar.
One thing the post did leave out was when Loomer stormed the stage she chanted a call for an end to glorifying political violence and “Blood of Steve Scalise is on your hands!”. The theater did officially comment about the disturbance:

According to police, Loomer was arrested for trespassing and disorderly conduct. Both Posobiec and Loomer did have a paid ticket. However, a post from Posobiec Twitter account alludes that he did not pay for his ticket and that he was a paid protestor. All of these videos will be posted below so you can make up your mind about his event.
Many on the right are claiming if Liberals support free speech why was Loomer arrested but not BLM when they stormed the symphony in NYC. What do you think? Were they out of line? Should Loomer have been arrested?
