A right wing journalist was booed off of a NYC stage when she disrupted a Julius Caesar play on Friday night, and if given the opportunity, she said she would do it all over again.
New York Post reports that “conspiracy theorist” Jack Posobiec, filmed blogger Laura Loomer, of the alt-right webiste, The Rebel, as she rushed onstage Friday night at the Public Theater’s production of “Julius Caesar.” Apparently, the blogger accused the actors and production of encouraging political violence.

“This is unacceptable,” Loomer said as she walked onstage. “Stop the normalization of political violence against the right! This is unacceptable. You cannot promote this type of violence against Donald Trump!”
As the audience began to boo her to leave the stage, Boomer ignored them and continued on with her rant.
“This is violence against the right. This is violence against Donald Trump!”
Show officials announce that the show would pause as they tried to get Loomer off of the stage. She, however, wasn’t done. As officials escorted from the stage, she continued to protest.
“Shame on all of you!”
New York Daily News reports that the play portrayed a “Trump-like” Julius Caesar character. Bank of America and Delta both pulled their support from the play after hearing about its politically-charged portrayal.

Loomer was arrested shortly after she left the stage and booked into the Central Park precinct. She faces charges of disorderly conduct and trespassing. She was released from jail on Saturday and sent out a livestream video, indicating that she had no regrets and would do it all over again.
“This is the price I have to pay and I am happy. I am not going to be apologetic for this. I am not ashamed that I’ve been arrested. I would do it again, really. I would definitely do it again. And I hope more people do it too.”
