Just Wow. Sean Penn Is Really A Fascist. : Bill Maher Interview 3/5/2010

Okay, since I had heard that Penn had jumped the shark in this interview last Friday I had to watch it last night with the S.O.

There's a lot of pure madness in this interview. And a game. Trying to follow Sean Penn's thoughts and points when he is discussing Haiti makes advanced Sudoku look like tic-tac-toe. I don't know what the hell he's trying to say.

But the money quotes start at 4:45 with Maher's question about Hugo Chavez.

MAHER: His image in the media is just a buffoon. You have been there. You know him. You’ve talked to him. That’s all I really know about Hugo Chavez, is what I read in the media. A dictator, took over a lot of the branches of government, wants to be president for life. What do you know that I don’t know, that I should not have such a harsh feeling about this guy?

Did Maher know he was opening the door to the loony bin with that one?

For starters...

Penn: I think that if you’re more happy with 20 percent of a population having the access to dreams, access to the feeling they have an identity and a voice. If it’s okay with the 20 percent, versus the 80 percent he gave it to, then you can criticize Hugo Chavez.

Gee, Sean... can we come and take your property and stuff and give it to other people, too? Such idiocy and hypocrisy on display. And this is why this type of redistributive/collectivist policy always always fails. Just because one takes Sean Penn's house and cars and gives it to a "peasant" doesn't give the peasant Penn's talent (hey, he has a talent for making money...), but, no... it doesn't confer the work ethic or the drive or the maintenance necessary.

But then it got even worse.

Penn: The collaborative opportunity in Haiti, when you talk about Hugo Chavez, and some of the other people who are demonized, and you know, when some of these countries accuse us of an occupation -- where I believe this was strictly a humanitarian action by the United States military, and an incredible one – I’m a little sympathetic. Because every day, this elected leader is called a dictator here, and we just accept it! And accept it. And this is mainstream media, who should – truly, there should be a bar by which one goes to prison for these kinds of lies.

There is not much place in America for someone who believes our journalists should go to prison if they hurt the feelings of a dictator. Yes... Chavez is a dictator. Cuff me, Copper Penn.
