Sean Penn Attends Vigil for Hugo Chavez in Bolivia
The Hollywood Reporter ^ | Dec. 11, 2012

Posted on 12/11/2012 11:24:47 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

BUENOS AIRES -- Actor Sean Penn made a surprise appearance yesterday in Bolivia as he attended a candlelight vigil for the health of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, who is currently in Cuba undergoing his fourth cancer surgery.

The event attracted Chavez supporters as well as Bolivian officials, and took place in a diplomatic location in La Paz. Penn joined Venezuelan ambassador Crisbeylee Gonzalez and took the stage wearing a Venezuelan flag jacket, according to a report by EFE.

“Thank you, Sean,” said Gonzalez, “for joining us and for wanting to be here. We know President Chavez is a good friend of yours, and you didn’t hesitate one second about coming here with us to this vigil."

“He’s one of the most important forces we’ve had on this planet,” said Penn. “And I’ll wish him nothing but that great strength he has shown over and over again. I do it in love, and I do it in gratitude.

“I just want to say, from my very American point of view, of my friend President Chavez: It is only possible to be so inspiring as he is, as a two-way street. And he would say that his inspiration is the people.”

I used to like Robin Wright, especially after Princess Bride.

But her taste in men is abominable. And so, her taste in political activism.

Bleah, to them both.

Boo!!!

"“He’s one of the most important forces we’ve had on this planet,” said Penn. “And I’ll wish him nothing but that great strength he has shown over and over again. I do it in love, and I do it in gratitude."

Right Sean. He was an "important force" to turn a once vibrant Venezuela into a communist nightmare, just as ALL communes work out. Show me one that worked. Double-dog dare you...haha.

“I just want to say, from my very American point of view, of my friend President Chavez: It is only possible to be so inspiring as he is, as a two-way street. And he would say that his inspiration is the people.”

Okay then. Thinking you should chip in for his next operation. No? you say? Because he is the leader and has the assets? And why does he have the money to go to Cuba for all these procedures where his own people are left to their lousy health-care system at home? Why is that, you ever-loving f*cking communist dipshit?

Ever wonder about the truly "poor" of Venezuela, Mister-socialist-loving-Chavez-worshipping dipshit? Ever wonder why their health-care is so bad? Of course not. You got your photo taken with a Lenin wannabe. Bet you were in one of the loser communes in the 60's or 70's that always fell apart.

Penn, you think you're such a bad ass and all that because you pretend in movies and a quasi-celebrity. I know simple men who have done nothing but worked for minimum all their lives and proud of it who would love to kick you stupid ignorant ass into the next century. Eat sh*t and live.

Begging the question, can a wise or godly man embrace socialism?

Yep, the dude is a total douche. My favorite antic of his was when he bought a bass boat and took it to NOLA after Katrina... Chock full of videographers etc. to film his own Supreme Charitability.

Problem was they neglected to put the plug in at the bottom of the transom... So somewhere out there (I saw a clip of this some time ago) if it hasn't been pulled are some great shots of Sean trying to save his own ass as the boat slips from the trailer into the depths.

Sadly I can't seem to find that clip now. I would love to see it again.

Sean Penn, his lawyers, and his Soros funded pals at the likes of Media Matters seem successfully to have pulled all of the shots and original footage of this matter from the internet.

That is to say, Sean Penn Sinking Boat Katrina footage seems to have been pulled off the internet.

When they are not busy destroying prominent conservatives by posting falsely to blogs in their name, optimizing negative engine hits and deep-sixing positive ones, they are rescuing the likes of Sean Penn from their own foolish antics.

I never like “The Princess Bride”. I know a lot of people do. The only Robin Wright movie I liked was Forrest Gump. That was an incredibly great movie. We all make mistakes. At least she is not down there joining him.

Sean Penn did not turn into a POS yesterday. He has been one for a long time.

I am so touched that such an important and busy person as Mr. Penn would go out of his way to express such concern for a murderous thug dictator. (redundant) So, what is the moral calculation being made here?

I care a lot more about the health of all those whose lives Hugo the Hun has destroyed. As for SP, he’s a lost cause.

What is wrong with Sean Penn??

Oh yes, he has the freedom to say such idiotic things because he lives in the United States.

_____________________________________

It was indeed. Even as just a lesson in history, it was great; and then there was everything else—the emotion, relationships, sense of duty between brothers in arms in war. One of the best movies ever.

Maybe the jerk will stay there. I am sure he can make a lot more money there than here in our terrible, evil capitalist system.

On second thought, I hope some patriotic observers go to Venezuela soon so that they can report back to us on the political and economic disaster Obamussolini has planned for us.

The thing to understand is that Sean Penn is a Communist who thinks he is a Democratic freedom fighter. In other words Penn believes that what you and I call Communism is actually Democracy and what we call Democracy is actually Fascism. See, you and I are blind to the big lie, maaaan! No one will ever convince him otherwise. He learned it from his father Leo Penn, a closet Hollywood Communist from way back.

On an interesting note - Google Leo Penn’s Wiki page and marvel at how brief and scrubbed clean it is. Just rumors and unfounded accusations - a victim of the Blacklist. No confirmation at all about his Communist proclivities.

“Begging the question, can a wise or godly man embrace socialism?”

In case that isn’t a rhetorical question, I’ll answer: NO! Not only NO, but HELL NO!

I know I clicked “Reply”, but I find I’m utterly without words.

On Sunday, I had the honor of speaking with a husband (pastor) and wife (doctor) from Cuba who were visiting our fellowship to talk about life there, and how difficult it was for Christians to practice their faith. They have nothing but contempt for people like Penn and Michael Moore, who suck up to tyrants. Radical chic, indeed.

It was heartening to hear them begin their interview by saying that Michael Moore (that Marxist tub of goo) was a liar and that his “documentary” about Cuban health care was a complete lie.

Penn should thank God that he has the freedom to be a sycophant of one of the worst tyrants of the modern era. I doubt he’d have the opportunity to exercise the freedom of dissent in Venezuela or Cuba. At least more than once.
