Skip to comments.Sean Penn Wants Reporters Jailed for Calling Chavez 'Dictator'
Posted on 03/08/2010 3:32:52 PM PST by mockingbyrd
First Amendment be damned . . . If Oscar-winning actor Sean Penn had his way, any journalist who called Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez a dictator would quickly find himself behind bars.
Penn, appearing on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" on Friday, defended Chavez during a segment in which he detailed his work with the JP Haitian Relief Organization, which he co-founded.
"Every day, this elected leader is called a dictator here, and we just accept it, and accept it" said Penn, winner of two Best Actor Academy Awards. "And this is mainstream media, who should -- truly, there should be a bar by which one goes to prison for these kinds of lies."
It was just the beginning of a busy weekend for Penn. When asked on CBS' "Sunday Morning" about those who question his motives for his humanitarian work in Haiti, he said:
"Do I hope that those people die screaming of rectal cancer? Yeah. You know, but I'm not going to spend a lot of energy on it."

Why do these idiots persist in believing that if indeed a real dictator took over, that they would be in the halls of power?
Yeah well he would want me executed for most of what I say about Chavez.
Isn’t that a little ironic?
I want Penn jailed for openly advocating on behalf of dictator Chavez.....
One fascist talking about another one.
Who is “Sean Penn” and why should I give a sh*t about what he thinks?
I don’t know what Napolitano is talking about. Has anyone suggested he shouldn’t be allowed to say this?
He is a dictator.
Same as Castro (whichever).
Same as Mugabe.
I want Penn jailed for being an idiot. Or just for being.
Go back to your Bong, Spicoli .....
Some time ago, I read that a lot of Hollyweird elites never graduated high school. That would tend to explain the gross ignorance. But I don’t know if it’s true.
Wasn’t Penn’s father a commie?
We need more McCarthyism.
He must have depressive psychosis. Perhaps he should go back down to Chavez and get some more of that male bonding.
The Southern Poverty Law Center will hunt you down and place a “right wing” label on your back, watch out. ;)
Hey Sean. I didn’t call him a dictator. “Taster”.
That stupid ditz owes his fortune and his life of ease to the American capitalist system. Had he started in Hugo’s paradise he’d probably be living in some hovel.
he’s Hugo’s perfect follower.
“Do I hope that those people die screaming of rectal cancer? Yeah”. Sean Penn humanitarian
Shouldn’t Penn be confined for roaming stupid in public?
Another Champion of the 1st Amendment demanding it be denied to everyone else....
He’d be the first to demand his First Amendment rights and the first to deny you yours ....
Fascism is the unspoken streak that lives in the heart of liberalism.
You can’t fix stupid.
I’m sure Larry king will be happy to continue giving him a platform for the full hour.
Sean, come to my house, and knock on my door to tell me you are taking me to jail. My room mates, Smith and Wesson, might object.
Amazing how fascist these liberals are.
When you start poking what libs say, so often it turns out they are as bad as Hitler in taking away freedoms. But they get so angry when you point it out.
To the clueless Penn - if you want the press imprisoned for their opinion, you are a fascist. If you can’t figure that out, you are a fool.
Yes, and like father like son.
Just abbreviate dictator to dic. when you journalists write stories about him.
And his college degree is in... what?
I want sean penn jailed for being a moron.
I think Penn also said he was hoping to get an acting job soon to pay for the works he’d done in Haiti.
Wishing that members of a potential movie audience die painfully is not going to have the casting people flocking to your door, moron. The country’s going conservative, or hadn’t you noticed? Sarandon is practically doing made for TV movies now — and those aren’t even getting any ratings. And all those fab anti-Iraq movies have died at the box office, along with SpongeMike Sweatpants Moore’s last two fakeumentaries.
Ah, Sean .. once an assclown, always an assclown.
You should care because a LOT of people think like him.
If they get more power, we’re doomed.
One day Mr Penn will have his eyes opened to the truth of Chavez, I hope he can live with himself then.
surely Daddy must have dropped baby Sean on his head at one point
You can't beat it out of them either but I think it would be wrong not to at least try.
I want people arrested for calling Penn an actor.
Yep. Penn made a CIA movie a couple of years ago. It sounded interesting and I probably would have seen it if anyone other than Penn had been the lead.
The idea of squaring Penn with national security and the CIA was too much for me.
BTW, Penn once gave an interview and his kids were begging him to STFU. They told him that he was embarrassing the whole family.
But, it appears he just can’t help himself. Ruin his career, embarrass his family, doesn’t seem to care. He is obsessed with promoting totalitarian Marxism regardless of the consequences.
Sean Penn is living proof that one can be a complete moron in America and yet make it somewhat big. Typical loudmouthed leftist-bashing the country that gave him a good life. Move to Venezuela already you anus hole.
I would say it right to this little pipsqueak's face.
In spite of his reputation, I have no fear that he would take a swing at me. After all, I'm not a woman.
He peaked at Spicoli.
Useless tool ever since.
No we’re not, we have the guns. Don’t ever forget that.
