Sean Penn defends Hugo Chávez
Guardian.co.uk ^ | 11/24/08 | BRBurton

Posted on 11/30/2008 10:01:17 AM PST by B.R. Burton

The Venezuelan leader, Hugo Chávez, has not had things all his own way recently, but at least he has famous friends. Falling oil prices and some significant losses in recent elections may have delivered blows to Hugo Chávez's self-styled socialist revolution, but he can still count on the support of Sean Penn.

Sean Penn needs to talk to real Venezuelans who are on the receiving end of Chavez’ policies.

Sean is proof that marijuana enemas can cause brain damage.

So he says that Chavez might not be a good man, but he might be a great one...

Well, taken at face value, that’s probably correct, depending on what you mean by “great”.

It’s a pity Sean Penn can’t keep his politics to himself: I quite enjoy his acting. He was great in “Thin Red Line”.

Thin Red Line was ages ago and he was a lot poorer then.

Million dollar marxists love Communist dictators.

Sean Penn is a very intelligent man. He uses that intelligence to abet thugs who agree with his political philosophy. Penn's dad was an unrepentent commie - a blacklisted Hollywood director. Like father like son.

By denouncing your enemies as stupid, you put yourself, and your cause at great disadvantage.

In other news, Sean Penn thinks that socialists Pol Pot, Hitler and Stalin were warm, cuddly, lovable fuzz balls.

Sean Penn, f——n little hitler especially with is mustache ! Supports the world’s tyrants. Chavez needs to be removed from office, it would do the Venezuelan people some good.

He wants the freedom, rights and money he make in the country which he is unhappy with, but there is no way in the world he would want is live in Hugo Chavez world.

sean penn is on the down side of the arc and gaining speed. It won’t be long till people will be asking, “Who’s Sean Penn?”

Watch the 81 minute video on the left to see how someone can be that brainwashed, Sean Penn is the classic half-baked intellectual.

“Wow, how can someone be so brainwashed?”

Must be the drugs Chavez confiscates from the Colombians to give to movie stars and leftists.

I couldn’t even watch that entire video. It’s someone wandering around, blathering incoherently, trying to find a cogent thought. This guy is a simpleton. A typical oily Communist who confuses obfuscatory commentary about his “feelings” with facts. And he needs to take a f**king shower.

Yes, and if you add to that the mental disease called liberalism, and you have a truly delusional idiot who shouldn’t be listened to.

How stupid actually is Sean Penn? Does he hate his country so much he can blithely overlook the lunatic actions of a megalomaniac like Chavez? How dumb do you have to be to not see through Chavez?

Penn is pissed at the whole USA because his daddy was a blacklisted commie. There’s a funny viseo at the site of Cavuto calling a NYC councilman a SOB for loving Hugo.

I wonder why someone who hates the US so much when it has given him riches and fame beyond any other nation on earth?

He is a puzzling maggot, and I despise him.

If Sean Penn and his Ilk think things are so wonderful in Venz. then please pack up and go live there, and don't forget to take Hugo's big buddy Danny Glover with you.
Who out there will going to see Sean's new pic “Milk”??
I hear he has a hot love scene in the film with another man which should make it a Big Draw.
Seriously I think that film will be one big bomb in 90% of the country.

What you been smoking? Penn wouldn’t be able to take a leak with wetting his pants unless some directed him.
Just watch him, he’s a pure airhead.

He's laughing all the way to the bank. For what its worth, I met him last year. I flew Penn, his wife, and their two kids to Hawaii. I'll stand by my previous comment. He still looks like (a badly aged) Spicoli, his clown character from Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Unfortunately, he's not Spicoli. He's a hideously wealthy, extremely intelligent, academy award winning actor. And he is an unrepentent, America hating, communist.
