Sean Penn Should Stay Out Of Politics

| Filed under: PolitikSean PennHugo Chavez

wenn22348542.jpg

Sean Penn's publicist, Mara Buxbaum, is speaking out in defense of her client.

Penn has been criticized as a "stooge for left-wing dictatorships" as he's been known to meet with douchebags like Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro and then "write nice things about them."

If you recall, Penn was even hanging out with Chavez just this past October.

His rep, Buxbaum, says in Penn's defense that "Sean does not endorse dictators. Like him or not, Hugo Chavez is a democratically elected official."

She incredulously adds that "Sean is a champion of civil rights."

Yea, you go Champion!

Despite what his publicist says, Penn continues to praise the Castro and Chavez regime. Sean even said, "Chavez may not be a good man. But he may well be a great one."

WTF?!?

Buxbaum also stated, you "may not always agree with Sean, who aggressively questions and challenges the status quo in ways that aren't always polite." But Sean "asks questions, and questions the answers he gets."

What do U think of this?

    It's called the Mercosur here, and it's been on for some years now. It's been positive in some ways. Anyway it's about regional economics, not global. I have no idea of the way it would work in North America though.
    It was a joke, I love my country, it's beautiful! I meant it's the country at the end of the map…

    Corruption, that is and was the problem in my country

    This douche should relinquish his American citizenship and move to Venezuela or Cuba… !!!!!

    Civil Rights?? Seriously!?!?!? … Don't let him come back to the States!!! We don't want you… We have enough fuckery and enough Actors… Let that uneducated Venezuelan Monkey keep you as his new pet!!!



  4. 104

    YOU GO, SEAN!!!!! if you knew more about latin american history, you wouldn't find this to be such a far fetched concept.

    WE NEED MORE SEAN PENNS IN THIS COUNTRY!!!!



  5. 105

    Normally you're spot on but you cant go around calling beloved foreign leaders douchebags when you don't know your shit. You know celebrities, not politics, and just because you heard someone say somewhere that hugo chavez was an asshole doesnt mean it's true.



  6. 106

    Right because supporting someone like chavez is asking questions. I love how him and his agent or whoever this ignorant person is the term "democracy" to justify what a good person Chavez must be..sorry "great." Last time I checked, great, unless it was used in sarcasm, never is used to describe someone who steals from there people and uses their money to finance stupid movies like Danny Glover's, persecute journalists, public speakers who voice their opinions against them and then have them flee the country, cut working hard venezuelans already small pensions only again to use that money to finance danny glover's stupid movies, oh and one of the best "great" qualities of his, to use the money to support FARC and other guriella and corrupt groups who are terrorizing those all over latin america either due to drugs and corruptions or the ongoing poverty that he's done virtually nothing to help. props to sean penn for being so politically and democratically informed.



  7. 107

    P.S. I forgot to ask, how is supporting chavez equivalent to supporting civil rights? You want to talk about civil rights, ask my relatives who have now left their home in venezuela out of fear for their lives because they dared speak out against this man. Sean penn should only open his mouth when he reads a line out of his script.



  8. 108

    only the poor support him eh? How is it that the poor chavistas get to stay in luxurious hotels in Cancun mexico? unless any of you have actually lived in this country and witnessed what goes on, and has family that has had to leave because of the corruption in his government, then i suggest closing your mouths and commenting on the celebrity articles that perez posts. Perez at least knows more of the politics in latin america then most of you in this blog if you're willing to justify a good man simply at his "public" display on Israel in order to evoke sympathy and support.



  9. 109

    For those who don't know the real story here: Leo Penn (Sean's father) belonged to the communsit party and was an open ass kisser of the Soviet Union. So, in a way, Sean is following a family motto: Hate your country, befriend your enemies and you will get an Oscar and will work forever in Hollywood.

    And to his publicist: Darling, it's impossible, Sean Penn don't even have a clue of what a champion of civil rights is. How can he? He admires a dictator in Cuba that's being in power for 50 years and who NEVER EVER won an election.- Civil rights my ass…

    Like his father he is a traitor, a communist and a very angry man.



  10. 110

    are you serious? Do you speak spanish? Habla espanol cabron? maybe you should learn then read the articles and watch videos where chavistas have killed innocent people in rallies, mobs etc. then maybe you should read on how the appaerntly good and poor chavistas fly to cancun and stay at five star resorts, then maybe you should look into Chavez's own personal history where he has connections with corrupt military and the FARC. then maybe you should look up how many venezuelans are STILL struggling and still dying and still murdering and still kidnapping EVERY DAY because he is giving all the people's money to Fidel, to other Latin american leaders, to this sean penn douchebag and to Danny glover out of all people, and then look up how many venezuelans have had to pick up and leave because Chavez, although apparently "elected" practices so called democracy, persecutes them because they don't agree with what he's doing. reply back when you've researched everything. and remember that democracy is also politics which can be corrupt, snide and untruthful.



  11. 111

    Sean is the enemy withing, Sean Penn is trying to make an ass of America since he was a teen. You really want to know the truth? Sean don't beleive in your freedom of speech, just HIS. And if you even think differently, you are automatically wrong and deserving of torrential abuse. Isn't that the base of communism?

    Re: obamasfaintinggirl – just so you know…not attacking you or anything bur more people die every weekend in vzla than in most parts of the world with wars and terrorists groups, and the media CAN NOT air those news because the goverment doesn't want the public to know anything is wrong, so whike chavez keeps making u more and more "democratoc" elections, people are dying and dying of violent acts, plus the goverment doesn't give funds to get security to the streets they just keep it. For showing things like this one of the biggest network was banned by the goverment

    Re: obamasfaintinggirl – BUT THIS IS THE PROBLEM!!! Chavez is financing the colombian guerrilla and your response is that US is financing Israel??? ok maybe that's the case but not because "US" is bad means that chavez is good!!!!!!!!! he is the wors human being possible!!!!!! I KNOW



  15. 115

    I agree completely with Sean.



  16. 116

    hey perez! I THINK HUGO DID MORE FOR HIS PEOPLE THEN BUSH DID FOR US! YOU KNOW, BUSH? HE WAS OUR FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT PRESIDENT WHO FUCKED OUR COUNTRY UP INSTEAD OF OUR COUNTRY FUCKING OTHER COUNTRIES UP! WAKE UP PEREZ. YOU AINT SEEN A REAL DICTATOR YET, BUT DUE TO THE FUCKED UP SHIT THAT RECENTLY HAPPENED IN OUR COUNTRY OUR USA AND THE DISTABLIZATION WE HAVE CAUSED, WE WILL MEET OUR DICTATOR SOON. BET YA! AND WHEN IT HAPPENS, DON'T BLAME HUGO!



  17. 117

    Penn's a multi-generational parlor pinko that cares not about freedom, just about HATING the US and Western culture. His dad was outed by US hero Sen. Joe McCarthy.



  18. 118

    you all are fucking morons



  19. 119

    It's no secret Hollywood loves dictators because dictators are leftists and so are most of the people in hollywood…hell most of the people in Southern California are leftists…



  20. 120

    Have some of you morons forgotten that Pez knows a bit about Cuba as a Cuban-American? If anyone should know about the "virtues" of Cuba under communist Castro I'm sure Perez knows at least a few stories. Perez can explain to us why so many Cubans risk crossing shark infested waters to come here to the USA. There is reason they risk life and limb to come here. Most of the idiots on here have clearly been educated in the liberal public indoctrination centers of America.



  21. 121

    Hmmmm, let's see, Cuban Perez being mad at Sean Penn for talking to "dictators"…wonder if there's some personal bias there?? Cuba is more accepting of gays than the U.S., AND ESPECIALLY MORE than Cuban-Americans!

    Re: obamasfaintinggirl

    Thankyou it is great to hear someone speaking the truth!



  24. 124

    I agree that you, perez, should probably stay out of politics.



  25. 125

    WOW is this rich or what! HAHAHAHA

    Perez you are a stooge for the left as well! You lie and make up shit about the right, and act as if the left can do no wrong.

    I mean you GUSH over Obama, yet he is anti-gay. You are the man you hate.



  26. 126

    The SAD part about it is, there are people that support these left wing nutjobs JUST BECAUSE they are leftwing.

    I don't know how many retards I saw with Chauvez t-shirts on when I was in College. 95% of them had NO IDEA what the guy represented. But they were sure he was against Bush (Sr.) or something.. LAWL.



  27. 127

    Sean Penn - great actor. Other than that…. he's another celebrity with an overblown sense of self. The ego is a monster.



  28. 128

    Sean Penn is a lot of things, but a f#$%ing dumb-ass-douch-bag lemming ISNT one of them!



  29. 129

    Leave him alone.Ignorance is a bad thing and it is a good thing he goes to find out for himself and make up his own mind.More than the idiots here do especially Perez who makes such asinine political comments he should be gagged.Sean is a super cool and deep person. Now be quiet. I sat next to Castro at Nelson Mandela's inauguration- he is an expert knowledge tank on JAZZ.. and so polite and very funny .And I am not remotely supportive of communism, but he was a great man and utterly charming.Sure same is thus of Chavez



  30. 130

    Chavez is a complete effing nut job. I can see we have some real morons on this site…who the HELL defend Hugo Chavez?

    As for Penn, he as a right to his opinion. I think he's probably well intentioned. That said, he's about as wrong as he could possibly be.

    I think Penn is probably eased duped by these men.

    Again, if you think Chavez (must less Castro) is a great guy…or even a sort of good guy…PUT DOWN THE LAPTOP and READ a GD BOOK on Chavez. Hell, Google him if you must. But wake the eff up.



  31. 131

    Re: obamasfaintinggirl – Why don't you shut your Anti-Semitic ass up? You really think it's the Palestinians who have it so bad? No, the Jews have had a cakewalk. You're right. The Jews have it SO good as a people. Can you believe, after the fabulous way they've been treated across the globe, that they want a homeland? Wow, the nerve.

    Didn't even read this, but I lurve me some Sean Penn!



  33. 133

    I really hate to suggest violence….but I wish someone would remove this stupid fucker from the earth.



  34. 134

    Is a bit shocked that many people making comments have a distorted positive outlook on Chavez. I have many good Venezuelan friends, and they would tell you that things are not looking good under the Chavez leadership. i.e., If Venezuelans vote against Chavez, they are mysteriously fired or unable to acquire new jobs (so no, he was not voted fairly under a democracy as people voted in fear). He has also made the country very dangerous — there are kidnappings daily for ransom and no law enforcement to prevent and diminish these crimes. It's a dangerous place to live at this time.



  35. 135

    Just like Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon, Penn is someone who's let celebrity go to his head. You're an actor, douche, not a statesman.



  36. 136

    If he likes Chavez so much, he should go live in Venezuela and see how it really is. It's easy to agree with someone and then go live in Beverly Hills. I dare u Sean Penn, come live with us, let your children walk on the streets in Caracas and then tell me if you really like it.



  37. 137

    Hmmm, what do I think? I think EVERYONE should be as inquisitive and forgo the propaganda that has inundated the U.S. for decades!!! Get a backbone and stop eating what you're spoonfed. Status quo=federal ho!



  38. 138

    I THINK YOU -PEREZ RIGHT WING CUBAN ASS HILTON-SHOULD STAY OUT OF POLITICS. RIGHT WING CUBAN HATERS LIKE YOU JUST BRING YOUR HATRED TO THE THE STATES AND WE DON'T WANT IT OR NEED IT! tHAT AND mICRO tItS kATE pERRY MAKE YOU A LOSER IN MY BOOK PEREZ!

    Re: Dixie77

    Please enlighten me on how me speaking out about the atrocity of what is going on in that region of the world, and has been for decades now, makes me anti-Semitic. Please, PLEASE tell me! The truth hurts, that I can't help that.

    I never once said that what the Jewish people went through during the Holocaust was okay or that I condoned it but what they are doing to the Palestinians, is not right! Two wrongs don't make a right, my friend.

    The Palestinians are treated like dogs, having their lives controlled as if they are in some kind of sick video game and the Israelis are the ones with the controllers in their hands. They don't get to eat unless they do as they are told. They don't get to work unless they do as they are told. Hell, they don't even get to LIVE unless they do as they are told. Is this right? I think not! What gives the Israeli's the authority to take their aggression out on the Palestinians? What makes the Palestinian people wrong for wanting their own homeland, uncontrolled, which was ripped away from them by their oppressors?

    Talk about nerve Dixie, you might want to get your head out of your ass. 'Denial isn't just a river in Egypt'.

  42. 142

    I agree with #8! All the ppl hating on Castro and Chavez are just stupid ignorants who don't even know the true facts and are guided by the fucking american propaganda! You don't even have your own opinion you just say what you've heard! You should learn about what they're fighting for idiots! They use you like Puppets!

    I think Mara Buxbaum knows where her bread is buttered…what would you expect from a paid publicist? You omitted the reason for the comment in the first place..there is fear of a backlash from Oscar voters who oppose Penn's political mouthings. Funny…the actor will abandon his stance when an Oscar is in jeopardy! Why actors should act and not pretend to understand politics.
