Sean Penn: Payaso, Izquierdista Estupido
Posted by Dave Blount at March 15, 2010 9:14 AM
Being a useful idiot may earn scorn from all decent Americans, but it's not a totally thankless role. By endlessly praising socialist tyrant Hugo Chavez, going so far as to demand that his critics be imprisoned even outside Venezuela, Sean Penn has earned himself a doggie biscuit and pat on the head:
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is grateful that actor Sean Penn has defended him against his critics within the U.S. media. In an appearance on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, Penn slammed Chavez critics who refer to the socialist leader as a dictator.
The Oscar-winning celebrity noted that Chavez has won repeated elections and suggested that media critics who call him a dictator should be jailed. …
Penn has visited Chavez several times and frequently defends the president's leftist political policies.
Chavez welcomed Penn's comments Wednesday and thanked the actor for standing up to his detractors.
Others are less appreciative of Penn's efforts on behalf of tyranny — for example, Venezuelan immigrant Ozzie Guillen:
The outspoken White Sox manager called Penn a "payaso" (clown) and "izquierdista estupido" (stupid leftist) on Twitter Friday for his praise of controversial Venezuela President Hugo Chavez.
"Oh my God, Sean Penn defended our President Hugo Chavez," Guillen, a Venezuela native, tweeted. "That's easy when you [don't] live in Venezuela and have money. LOL…shame on [you]."
Unfortunately there is zero chance of any of Tinseltown's limousine Leninists relocating to one of the half-starved socialist dictatorships they extol. Why should they bother, when we're only an ObamaCare and Tax & Charade bill away from "fundamentally transforming" America into North Cuba?
