Chicago Theater Establishment Wants to Disinvite Famed Critic From Shows Because She Defended Police

Hedy Weiss has been Chief Theater Critic for the Chicago Sun-Times since 1984, a popular fixture in theater circles for decades. But that has changed in recent weeks. Leading arts figures in the Windy City have created a petition demanding that she no longer be invited to productions.

Weiss’ “crime”? She keeps posting opinions the Chicago theater scene finds offensive. It all came to a head when Weiss recently reviewed Steppenwolf Theater’s production of playwright Antoinette Nwandu’s Pass Over, a modern black version of Samuel Beckett’s classic Waiting for Godot.

    Harsh, but it looks as if it’s Hi De Hi De Ho for poor Hedy.

    Kill the Kulaks!

    Read the petition signatories’ comments.
    Sinister. Chilling. Cruel. Dripping with the hatred of Whites.
    Surely a civil war comes our way for there can be no compromise nor discussion with such people. We will just have to kill each other with the victor assumed to be righteous.

    She’s lucky that burning witches is no longer a popular punishment among liberals.

    I never used to think much about negroes. Now I don’t like or trust them.

      I work with a number of them. Whenever things don’t go their way, or they are caught out doing something questionable…they start accusing you of racism. Of course from my perspective they are doing what they accuse you of, by assuming it has anything to do with the melanin content of their skin.
