Over-rated actor? Useful idiot?
I happen to think both.
He's spent the last few days making friends with Hugo Chavez. Apparently, he's spent a lot of time and effort praising Chavez for doing the same things that would have Hollywood apoplectic if it were happening here.
Human Rights Watch, not exactly a group fond of Bush and/or Cheney, are saying pretty much the same things they are in regard to Chavez's consolidation of power since the failed recall election in 2004. He claims that he's only trying to bring stability and prosperity to Venezuela and the region.
Playing it straight out of the totalitarian playbook, he has...
And now, Sean Penn is actively engaged in a little mutual masturbation with Chavez. Apparently, human rights are only important when there's a political axe to grind for Mr. Penn. Or, maybe he really is as stupid as his Jeff Spicoli character, and cannot discern fact from fiction.
Oh, and I thought he sucked in Mystic River. Tim Robbins was much better.
Hugo Chavez is silenting dissent, arresting, killing, exiling, etc... political opponents. He has closed all Anti-Chavez broadcasting companies, etc.. He is taking over private property, and is basically trying to be the next Castro.
Now Sean Penn, who, a nutty leftist, who I obviously disagree with on everything in the modern world, has gone over the line. He went from Bush Bashing, which is annoying, but legal, to treason. He was went to a hostile nation and is chumming with him. He is a traitor.
