A blog entry titled "Sean Penn is Not a Smart Man Or a Patriot" has been posted at BigHollywood.com. Aside from the fact that whoever wrote that headline isn't very smart either (or at least not a fan of proper English), it's not a bad article. It preserves in amber a perfect portrait of the moron who is Sean Penn. Click here to check it out.
The writer did leave out one of Penn's most idiotic statement, but one the illustrates why he gives head to Iranian mullahs and Hugo Chavez whenever he can see his way clear to it. Sean Penn, American patriot that he is, believes that free speech is only for him and those who agree with his viewpoint. Everyone else should be imprisoned.
On Bill Maher's HBO show, Penn stated, in yet another expression of his undying love for the dictatorial, terrorism-supporting socialist president of Venezuela Hugo Chavez, "Every day, this elected leader is called a dictator here, and we just accept it, and accept it. And this is mainstream media. There should be a bar by which one goes to prison for these kinds of lies."
Maybe if Chavez would stop shutting down newspapers and broadcast companies in his country that criticized him, American journalists would stop calling him a dictator. (Although Penn may soon get his wish. Our own government appears to be increasingly moving increasingly in that direction, what with Our Dear Leader targeting media companies and individuals from his bully pulpit.)
