A man shouted ‘Heil Hitler, Heil Trump’ during performance of Fiddler on the Roof at Baltimore’s Hippodrome Theater last night.

Audience members dived for cover, fearing a shooting, and the man was ejected.

The Anti-Defamation League issued this response: ‘Just a few weeks after Pittsburgh and days after the FBI released 2017 hate crime data, yet another sign that these are not normal times.’



  • Antonia says:

    This man’s so filled with hatred and prejudice that he bought a ticket and attended a show centered upon Russian Jewish life of 113 years ago, just to shout that?

    This person needs a spiritual awakening in his life, to learn and experience real (agape) love.

    • V.Lind says:

      Not much chance of that in Trumpian America, where he who screams the loudest and twits the most times is lionised.

  • Petros LInardos says:

    Meantime, the administration has scaled down programs to counter violent extremism.

  • Evan Tucker says:

    We can’t get a break here…

  • anon says:

    Unacceptable…. except of course when uttered onstage and watched by President Obama (and the incomparable Mel Brooks):


    When life imitates art imitates life…

  • Enquiring Mind says:

    “…man shouting “Heil Hitler, Heil Trump” during a performance of “Fiddler on the Roof” in Baltimore stank of alcohol and told police he was motivated by his hatred of President Donald J. Trump.”

  • Enquiring Mind says:

    From the Baltimore Sun.

  • Brian says:

    This is how it starts. More and more these people are feeling emboldened now.

  • Doug says:

    Sounds like a case of TDS: Trump Derangement Syndrome. One look at the Internet proves that it’s running rampant these days. Just take a look at the responses right here:

  • ChiLynne says:

    Man (apparently inebriated) is a Trump hater and was comparing him to Hitler. More civility from the left.
