After her video went viral on social media veteran Democratic strategist Hank Sheinkopf said to Nypost “In the era when Democrats are seen as disorderly and out of control, all this does is make it more difficult to elect Democrats,” and added, “In Staten Island where you have a disproportionate number of police, corrections officers, and other law enforcement personnel who have served in the armed forces, this burlesque making fun of the armed forces will not go over well.”
Nevertheless, the video discussed on social media was posted by Brittany DeBarros on December 10th, 2019, she shared this video on her official Instagram handle and wrote “I’ve been debating whether or not to post video snippets of me in the #dropbootiesnotbombs anti-militarist extravaganza #CompostBin special edition show because it still feels like a pretty vulnerable thing to do. But I’ve decided it was such a powerful experience I want to share! When you see me pause and cover my face in the first video it’s because I’m actually overwhelmed with emotion and how liberating it felt to angrily tear that uniform off in front of an audience. I’m proud of this show and it still brings me so much joy to watch myself step into long under-nourished pleasure and passion. First video is from beginning of the show, 2nd + 3rd video from the finale with the gorgeous founders of @brassburlesque. Thank you so much for creating this magical space for folks to explore pleasure as political. And thank you @adriennemareebrown for your writing and work which played a huge role in nudging me to embrace my own pleasure and #PleasureActivism. Can’t wait until we have video to the entire show to share!.”

I watched some officers care more about role-playing Call of Duty and collecting medals than the needs of regular people or even the mission. I came home hurt and angry because it was clear that I had only caused more harm to the very people I wanted to protect. I felt betrayed by those who were entrusted with my life and who exploited my service, military leaders and politicians alike,” and added “All my life I’ve seen the way our politics and our economy are rigged against us. I know what it’s like to be spoken for and spoken over; to not belong. I don’t want to live in a world of lies, violence, and greed. Our truths matter, our lives matter, and fighting for our freedom and future matters.”
