“Mamas hope your babies grow up to be mass-murdereing, warmongering Stalinists” (sings Sean Penn)

Sean Penn was Hugo Chavez’ guest of honor (again) this Thursday, serving as keynote speaker at graduation ceremonies for Venezuela’s Salvador Allende Medical School.

“Allow me to impart a little anecdote,” beamed the two-time Oscar winner to the enchanted crowd. “I had the privilege to introduce my sons to comandante Fidel Castro and as he posed for a photo between them I told him: “President, I’ll now be denounced in the U.S. for educating my sons as socialist revolutionaries.

So he responded: “That’s the second best thing that could happen to them–first being doctors.”

Entire thing in Spanish here.

Imagine the professional life expectancy of a Hollywood actor who boasted of the privilege of having his kids pose with Augusto Pinochet Santa-Claus-style. Heck, it’s pretty much a career-killer to pose with George Bush!

Unreal.

(Pretty cool song, BTW)

  1. Old Joseph Kennedy wasn’t really a liberal, but he was ambitious and unscrupulous enough to be whatever it took to get what he wanted.

  2. Penn is beyond sad–a classic useful idiot. If he actually believes this shit, he’s pathetic, and if he’s just posturing and posing, he’s even worse. Somebody should tell these celebrity clowns that fame and fortune, even if there’s actual talent involved, do not make anybody an intellectual, a philosopher, a sage, a guide or a role model, let alone a savior. The delusional narcissism and amazing presumptuousness of these people defy belief. It might as well be something out of a frigging movie.
