Donald Trump: Make America Hate Again

Donald Trump Make America Hate Again

By David Johanssen

At first it was funny, then it turned ugly, but now no one is laughing at the GOP slug-fest. Donald Trump is still the front-runner, and he has been severely underestimated by media pundits and establishment officials. His right-wing populism and coarse nationalism have gained him support from white supremacists who say their membership is growing drastically. In a recent interview, Donald Trump refused to disavow David Duke of the KKK. Might he hold some sympathetic views toward even that organization?

One Wednesday, May 4, at 5pm, Shelter presents Donald Trump: Make America Hate Again, comparing Donald Trump to megalomaniacs such as Mussolini and Hitler. Is he just another in a long line of hate-mongers or something fresh and authentic? Discussion to follow, 50 pesos.

On Friday, May 6, at 5pm, Fidel Castro: A Life of Revolution. This film is a deeply intimate account of Cuba’s former leader, taken largely from private letters, correspondence, speeches, and interviews. The film features interviews with some of Fidel Castro’s closest relatives (including his sister, Juanita), friends and confidants, and some former comrades who now count themselves among his enemies. 50 pesos.

We continue our cultural education series on Saturday, May 7 at 5pm with Spirits of the Jaguar: Hunters of the Caribbean. The Taíno people are the virtually forgotten people who first occupied the Caribbean islands more than 2,000 years ago. Archaeologists believe the Taíno originally lived on the shores of northeastern South America, near present-day Venezuela. Join us for an in-depth look and discussion of this intriguing culture and its lost people. 50 pesos.

Shelter Theater is part of the Shelter VG4 Cultural Center, located at Vicente Guerrero 4, a short walk from the Jardin down Insurgentes. Telephone 154 7524 or visit sheltervg4.com to see upcoming events. Shelter VG4’s theater and class/performance space are available for rent.

Retraction: Shelter Theater previously advertised that Victoria Roberts “had been” a cartoonist for The New Yorker magazine. Victoria Roberts is still a cartoonist under contract to The New Yorker and has been since 1988.
