Hollyweird Airhead Charlize Theron Compares USA to Cuba

Here's something new: a member of the Hollyweird glitterati appears to consider the impoverished communist slave state in Cuba no better than the richest and freest country in the world — no worse, of course, but no better.

On returning from a visit to Cuba, Charlize Theron sounded remarkably like a reasonable person:

I think the (Cuban) younger generation is starting to say, "You know what, it doesn't work. We're not happy. We want to have freedom of speech. We want to be able to travel."

However, realizing that she had sinned against Hollywood's official religion (moonbattery), Theron quickly made amends, before she could find herself blackballed. When CNN's Rick Sanchez — who was born in Cuba and is aware of the conditions there — started to ask her about the lack of freedom in the island prison, she interrupted with this:

I would argue that there's a lack of freedom in America.

Gasped Sanchez:

But do you think the lack of freedoms in Cuba are parallel to the lack of freedoms in the United States?

The answer should keep Theron on Tinseltown's A List:

Well, I would. I would compare those two. Yes, definitely.

Her justification for comparing the world's Last Best Hope to a miserable totalitarian dictatorship was a couple of reporters who were fired after making seditious remarks about the war in Iraq that their employers evidently regarded as unprofessional. When Sanchez attempted to extract a clarification from the lovely young nitwit, she interrupted him again with this:

I want to make out with you right now.

Humberto Fontova offers this analysis:

After many nights of scrutiny and meditation, the best my team of analysts can determine is that Charlize Theron equates the policies of a regime that incarcerated political prisoners at a higher rate than Stalin's, that machine-guns to death entire families for attempting to travel abroad, that mandates (under penalty of prison or firing squad) what its subjects read, say, eat, earn, eat (both substance and amount), where they live, travel or work — she equates this regime with a government under which a private corporation owned by stockholders terminated some employees for violating company guidelines.
Who in Hollywood could argue with that? By Hollywood standards her logic seems airtight.

Actually, most people in Hollywood would consider what Theron said an insult — to Cuba. Fontova himself offers a few quotes:

Francis Ford Coppola:

Fidel I love you. We both have the same initials. We are both powerful men. And we both use our power for good.

Jack Nicholson:

Castro is a genius and Cuba is a paradise.

Chevy Chase:

Socialism works. I think Cuba might prove that.

Oliver Stone:

Castro is very selfless and moral, one of the world's wisest men.

Harry Belafonte:

If you believe in freedom, if you believe in justice, if you believe in democracy, you have no choice but to support Fidel Castro!

Kevin Costner:

It was an experience of a lifetime to sit only a few feet away from him (Castro).

Stephen Spielberg (describing dinner with Castro):

The eight most important hours of my life.

This chorus of useful idiots is referring to a corrupt dictator who has enriched himself while reducing his potentially wealthy country to such a wretched hellhole, people attempt to escape to the USA by crossing 90 miles of shark-infested waters on inner tubes.

If Satan were to appear on Earth, Hollywood would roll out the red carpet.

Charlize Theron: USA is as bad as Cuba.

Oh, man, and I used to like Theron and Nicholson.

Satan doesn't need to walk the earth once again (oh but he will). He has all the useful minions and puppets he can muster right now. Hollywood is just the tip of the iceberg.

Read Daniel 8:23-25...then go back and read the entire chapter (with a concordance) to get the whole story, sorting out both historical types and the final type of anti-christ. It says that the ultimate anti-christ (the little horn) works by deception and "peacably" lulls the world into blindness with his policy. No arms needed...just sheer spiritual stupidity. Hey folks, we're going to need stronger stomachs from here on out to deal with this apostasy.

And what is it, exactly, Charize would like to say or do but is unable because of our draconian society in the US?

What a complete ditz.

All of those people quoted above should have their citizenship revoked and be given a one way ticket to Cuba to spend the rest of their lives in Fee-dell Castros Communist Paradise....

Of course since their all obscenely wealthy they will probably to ok in Cuba as long as they fork over most of their wealth to Castro.

"We both have the same initials??? WTF? Was Coppola laughing when he said that?

Theron is a toy brain, I think everyone knew that all along. They don't select actresses for brains, any more than they select pitchers for ability to hit, and with corresponding lamentable results.

Costner's comment may or may not indicate adulation. (Arguably a face-to-face meeting with any world leader would be the experience of a lifetime.) I thought I'd read somewhere that he was pro-American, so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.

it has got to hurt to be as lamebrained as those you mention here.

Maybe she can make her next shitty mvoie in Cuba?

'Cuba = the US' is the same as 'I'll leave the US if the Chimphitler gets re-elected'.

The thoughts of unserious minds babbled by unserious people to the easily influenced, via their media enablers. They're going to leave the US for Cuba as soon as the people in the socialist paradise can afford $10 for a movie in order to support $10 million actor salaries. Which should be any day now..........

Amazing how many people babble on about how great Cuba is, but never want to LIVE there...they stay in their nice houses here in the good ol' U.S. of A.

Why not get the opinions of all the people who LEFT Cuba and showed up on the shores of south Florida. Why not ask THEM about this socialists' paradise? Because they don't give the right answer, that's why. How could they, they're not part of the Screen Actors Guild, so they're not qualified to speak on foreign policy or life under socialism.

Amen. Those of you who are at all familiar with Mad Magazine probably know that it contains a recurring cartoon series called 'Spy Vs. Spy.' What you probably don't know is that the creator of that comic strip, Antonio Prohias, was a Cuban refugee. He used to work for I believe a newspaper in Cuba, but then he learned that Fidel wanted to have him arrested for the anti- Communist political cartoons he made, and was forced to flee to America. Additionally, at the school I attended for a few years as a kid, the janitor Danny was also a Cuban refugee who was so desperate to get out of Cuba that he hijacked a tour boat (As in, put a gun to the driver's head)for transportation.

Don’t laugh, I am planning to hijack a car and drive it to Cuba.

My bourgeois neighbor has an old 58 Buick that I will hijack and convert into a makeshift boat. I will drive it from the Florida Keys across the Caribbean to the Socialist paradise of Cuba.

I have plenty of room if anyone wants to go with me. For some reason everyone I ask along says no. Strange?.....
