They’re coming for you next: A theater company in Minnesota decided to cancel its production of the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical Cinderella because the cast was “too white.”
Chanhassen Dinner Theatres was planning to stage Rogers & Hammerstein’s classic play later this year but a director scrapped the show this week — slamming its lack of racial diversity, twincities.com reported.
“It was 98 percent white,” the theater’s director, Michael Brindisi, said of the show’s actors Wednesday. “That doesn’t work with what we’re saying we’re going to do.” Brindisi said he considered recasting but instead decided to put a self-inflicted spin on cancel culture — and “scrap this and start fresh with a clean slate.”
“Recasting” is a mealy mouthed word that really means he would have fired some white actors he had already chosen and replaced them with black actors. And the only reason he would be firing them is because of their skin color, since he had already done his auditions and decided that these people were qualified.
I suspect he realized that if he did that he’d be vulnerable to some really bad publicity, even court suits. Better to fire everyone, start casting a different play where he could begin with a quota system favoring minorities. That way no one would have evidence of his bigotry.
These artistic bigots complete the quartet of legal and cultural racist communities that now rule America. First it was corporate culture, represented by Coca-Cola. Then it was the academic community, represented by Cornell University. Third was the government of Vermont, representing our modern corrupt legal community.
Today we at last see an example of the fourth member of this quartet, our modern bigoted entertainment and artistic community, which is so obsessed with race that it is willing to create racial quotas that favor minorities, even if it makes no sense.
Running through all four groups is a self-hate that manifests itself in an outright bigotry against whites. Though it has been decades since racism has acted to thwart the aspirations of minorities (remember, this is a country that voted twice for a black president in just the past twelve years), these white bigots have decided they must bow in acquiescence to those minorities, oppressing themselves and other whites out of fear, guilt, and their own anti-white racism.
America’s social fabric cannot long sustain such unjust behavior. Sooner or later the oppressed will revolt, and it will likely do so violently. We will have race war, caused not by the fake boogie-man of “white supremacy” but by the bigotry of our ruling culture, which has decided that all whites are evil and must be oppressed.
If you wanted to create a real white supremacy movement, you couldn’t do better. Evil always begets evil. The best way to fight it is to not do it, something our political, academic, corporate, and cultural leaders no longer understand.
