Brown University, which is not a cheap school, has allowed its entitled students and faculty to put on a play ridiculing ‘Islamophobia’, which is set to be titled “Invasion!” and meant to be a satirical play.
What are they satirizing? The west’s fear of Islamic extremism. Of course, to say anything else would be racist. Which is why they very carefully tread around raising any names, but all descriptions of the play are a long way of saying that they plan to call out ‘white people’ that disagree with their religion.
“The play is a sharp satire of how the Western world has come to fear its own preconceived idea of the Arabic male identity,” says the description on Brown’s Department of Theatre Arts and Performance Studies site. “It is a biting look on how the media has built up the idea of an enemy threat that exists only in the eye of the beholder.”
“Layers of misinformation, institutional bias, and years of half-remembered news stories are peeled away to show us some unsettling truths. This is [a] play about Islamophobia, media spin, and our own prejudices and fears.”
The Daily Caller also found:
The department site asserts that “Invasion!” stems from conversations pertaining to inclusion and diversity at Brown.
“The [Brown University Theatre] season aims to reflect the strengths and the challenges that students face in making contemporary performances that embrace diversity and can effect social change,” states the description. “In this moment of heightened awareness of the great strengths that immigrants make to this country, and of the daily fears and challenges many immigrants now face, this play’s critical attack on lazy and unconsidered stereotypes of people born in other countries resounds with a new and urgent voice.”
Tickets to “Invasion!” cost $7 for students, $12 for seniors, and $15 for adults.
The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to Ashley Teague, the director of Brown’s rendition of “Invasion!”, but did not receive comment in time for publication.
