Feckless #NEA tries to distance itself from death threat against President #Trump

 

The Left’s death threats against the President and his family have rapidly moved into high-gear…and Americans are sick of it.

The feckless NEA tried to distance itself from the controversy in a year when the endowment’s very existence was threatened by the budget blueprint from President Donald Trump’s administration for 2018. Although funding for the agency was extended through the end of September, its future is still uncertain.

“The National Endowment for the Arts makes grants to nonprofit organizations for specific projects. In the past, the New York Shakespeare Festival has received project-based NEA grants to support performances of Shakespeare in the Park by the Public Theater. However, no NEA funds have been awarded to support this summer’s Shakespeare in the Park production of ‘Julius Caesar’ and there are no NEA funds supporting the New York State Council on the Arts’ grant to Public Theater or its performances.”

The clamor over “Julius Caesar” is affecting Delta Air Lines and Bank of America. Amid threats of a boycott, the businesses withdrew their sponsorship of the obviously hate-based group.
