AFP - US filmmaker and long-time Hugo Chavez supporter Oliver Stone hailed the late Venezuelan leader as a "great hero" on Tuesday, saying he will "live forever in history."

Actor and activist Sean Penn, another Hollywood friend to Chavez, also paid tribute saying the world's poor had lost a "champion" and America had also lost "a friend it never knew it had."

Oliver Stone and Sean Penn are excellent examples of why a rational person can never have anything more than a superficial relationship with a liberal. Their way of thinking, mindset and values are so perverse, they can never ever be trusted.

what exactly made him a hero? that he stole 1 billion plus from the poor people of his country? or that he hated America ?

May both of them be confronted with the verbal wrath of María Conchita Alonso, who has always spoken the truth about Chávez.

The hypocrisy of people like them is what really burns me!

They a perfectly content for the government to take money from everyone ELSE to give to the poor while doing everything in their power to keep the government from taking a CENT from them!

People like Penn sit in their mansions calling OTHERS greedy! and admire tyrants like Chavez who make themselves billionaires while fleecing the pockets of the poor while supposedly redistributing the wealth of others.

Rush played a clip a few minutes ago of Barbara Wawa lionizing Chavez, saying he had no time for women and was “married” to his country. This of course was precisely the image Adolf Hitler carefully cultivated for public consumption.

I was wondering how long it would take for the crazies to show up.

Sean Penn needs a wife to beat up on so we don’t have to listen to his prattle.

They should hail Augusto Pinochet

He did more to save his country from future tyranny, develop their political system, improve their standard of living, at the lowest cost of life, of any South American “strongman” ever.

Many of Hollywood’s actors have expressed great affection for strongmen and dictators over the years; their world is all about fame and money and an easy access to power gained by such efforts. Then I suppose, there is a natural attraction of people who became rich and famous for pretending to be others, toward those willing and able to exercise power in the pursuit of wealth and fame.

They are retarded. Every single liberal is a retard, there are no exceptions.

Look at the facts...Where do they live? In big cities.

What is in big cities? Lots of big old houses.

What is in big old houses? Lead paint, lots of lead paint.

All the liberals ate paint chips as a child, paint chips in every color of the rainbow.

Hell, the poor liberals ground up paint chips to use as spices on their food.

Retards, every one.

How does a Communist dictator who believes in redistribution accumulate a billion-dollar fortune?

That was a rhetorical question.

Meanwhile:

Cindy Sheehan:

“A wonderful human being has passed.

What do I do when I am angry, happy, or sad? I write.

Back in 2004, shortly after my son, Casey, was killed in Iraq, a grief counselor advised me to write a letter to my son in a journal every night. I filled up three journals in the terrible months after his death. I often wrote at his grave and those journals did help me deal with the unspeakable loss.

Today, I write from a great well of sadness, but not just for me, for the world. My dear friend in peace and justice, President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, just lost his fierce and valiant battle with cancer . . . “

Have barf bucket ready:

LOL! You sound like my brother who says: “Forget about the zombie apocalypse, we are currently going through a retard apocalypse. Look what is top of the charts in music, movies, in politics. The retards have taken over!” Actually I would say that’s not true. We are going through a liberal apocalypse. The retarded are smarter.

And that is just what can be tracked. I am sure the true total is much much more.

he left Venezuela in sad shape as crime and unemployment are high and citizens are deeply divided. Sounds like modern day USA.

I can hear the keyboards in Hollywood tapping away the scripts for the movie that will glorify Hugo. Who will play the part—James Gandolfini comes to mind.
