Broadway Composer Says Maoist Takeover of Arts is Like Living in a “Totalitarian State”

“No one dares say it out loud.”

Acclaimed Broadway composer Stephen Schwartz says that the mob’s takeover of arts and culture feels like something straight out of a Maoist “totalitarian state.”

In an interview with the Telegraph, Schwartz highlights the insanity of the left’s new “cultural appropriation” purity test, where if artists want to avoid retribution from the woke brigade, they are only allowed to write about “someone who is exactly like you.”

“Everyone in the arts in America is talking about the tyranny of cancel culture and cultural appropriation,” said Schwartz. “The funny thing is, no one dares to say it aloud. It’s like living in a totalitarian state.”

The composer of 2017’s Prince of Egypt slammed the new Maoist ideological militancy which employs censorship and intimidation tactics to suffocate independent creativity.

“We’ve lost the ability to have our world view challenged by another point of view. It’s as though we’ve become terrified of ideas. But ideas are how society progresses,” said Schwartz.

The former president of the Directors Guild of America said that positive depictions of white characters are routinely decried as “white saviors,” adding, “What’s also strange is that if you write a character who is bigoted, people now assume you hold those views yourself.”

Noting that it’s a “weird time” for the arts, Schwartz underscores how the mob is mimicking the behavior of the Salem Witch trials, where “accusation is everything” and people are condemned and vilified for opinions they had 20 years ago.

The composer compared the mob’s treatment of those deemed to have made such infractions to “making people wander around wearing dunce caps saying they are sorry.”

Schwartz is by no means an obscure figure, having won three Grammys, three Oscars and a Golden Globe.

His strident condemnation of the relatively small but vociferous mob who have weaponized cancel culture to terrify artists into being amplifiers for their various inane social justice causes should be applauded.

“I think the pendulum has swung so far it’s got to swing back now. It’s just too crazy,” concluded Schwartz. “The whole point about art is empathy. At the end of the day we have to deal with it if we want to live in a free society.”

Kanye West Set to Appear on Alex Jones Show

First time ever meeting between two of the most controversial men in America.

Kanye ‘Ye’ West is set to make a first time ever appearance on the Alex Jones Show today as he continues to build momentum for a presidential run in 2024.

Although the two have been in contact for a while, with Ye even mentioning Jones in some of his lyrics, it appears as though this will be the first actual meeting between them.

Ye appeared on Tim Pool’s podcast earlier this week, although the show didn’t quite go as expected when West walked out after about 20 minutes when Pool offered some pushback against his claims about Jewish power interests.

As we previously highlighted, Ye visited Mar-a-Lago for a dinner with President Trump last week, accompanied by Milo Yiannopoulos and controversial Groyper leader Nick Fuentes.

Dubbed #Dinnergate by the media, Trump was accused of fraternizing with anti-Semites after he reportedly said he was very impressed with Fuentes.

Trump subsequently denied knowing who Fuentes was until he met him at the dinner.

Ye said he asked Trump to be his running mate in 2024 during the dinner, an invitation that didn’t go down very well, with Kanye, Yiannopoulos and Fuentes leaving not long after.

Kanye appearing on the Alex Jones Show is sure to provoke another round of media hysteria given the level of vilification both have received recently at the hands of the press.
