Sean Penn Wants Reporters Jailed for Calling Chavez 'Dictator'
Fox News ^ | March 08 2010

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?

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.

He must have depressive psychosis. Perhaps he should go back down to Chavez and get some more of that male bonding.

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.

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.

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.

If there were a death penalty for stupidity, Sean Penn already would have died a thousand deaths.

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.
