Skip to comments.An Open Letter to Sean Penn

Editor's Note: The following is an open letter from actress Maria Conchita Alonso, who penned this response to actor Sean Penn's recent remarks on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" in which the left-wing actor defended Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez.
Dear Sean, WHY?
Even though I have great respect for your artistic talent, I was appalled by a recent television interview where you vigorously showed support for the regime of Hugo Chavez. Therefore, I've decided to set the record straight for you regarding the Chavez regime, supporting my case based not only on my political ideologies, but on proven facts you choose to ignore. Otherwise, I believe your position would be different.
Being born in Cuba, a country where freedom of speech is non-existent, it's startling to observe how Venezuela, where I was happily raised, is fast becoming Cuba's mirror image: Dismantling of fundamental democratic rights deserved by its people and citizens of the world.
For example, you said that all Chavez-winning elections in Venezuela were "transparent."
Then WHY didn't the government allow a manual recount of the votes and computer information when doubt set in? After all, how do you explain how these votes that were strongly favoring the opposition mysteriously reflected the opposite results the morning after, thus permitting Chavez to continue on? On what are you basing your conclusions? I strongly recommend that you read a report by the U.S. State Department written in 2009 entitled "The Fraudulent Elections in Venezuela".

Amazing how someone who actually lived in an oppressive environment knows more than someone who hasn’t, yet supports that type of regime...
Sean Penn is obviously an idiot...But that is a foregone conclusion...
Waste of time and effort, Maria. Penn will not be swayed by any logic or reason. The acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree..................
Pics of Maria Please?
That's why it's an OPEN letter. Sean Penn is above us mere mortals, but maybe someone reading this will haver their eyes opened.
Considering ABC, CNN, CBS, NBC, and FOX I wonder if she knows that ipsofacto the government controls 80% of the media communications in this country?
Sean Penn can KMA...
Regarding Maria... How does one indicate a “flirtatiously loud whistle” in blog-speak? :))))
If Sean Penn were born in 1915 he would probably have been a big supporter of Adolf Hitler. It is pointless to reason with such a person. He is a useless scumbag. Have a nice day.
by Maria Conchita Alonso!
A real battle of the network stars.
Thank you, Miss Alonso for your contribution. Please don’t mind those of us who so lightly dismiss your testimony against socialism, and your courage.
Maybe there is a Maria Revolution to join. The Maria Party!!!
When you find out how to do that flirtatiously loud whistle or wolf whistle or the like ... let me know so I can use it too!
“Sean, you live in a country where your parents had the freedom to teach you principles and respect for entities and human beings, where education hasn’t been manipulated by political agendas of those in power.”
Ops. Got one wrong Maria. Otherwise, good letter. Too bad that megalomaniacal Hollywood egoists like Sean Penn are incapable of actually experiencing empathy.
Penn obviously has never had any responsibility in the real world... fortunately for us, he has no power of persuasion and appears a fool, even among his own comrades. A lost soul has never been so lost as hapless Penn... run a needle in your arm and drift away Penn, just drift away...
