I have been asked numerous times why I think there is such an affinity towards Castro by the Hollywood crowd. To which I always want to respond “Because they are complete fucking assholes with no fucking idea of what is happening outside the lens of the camera.” But, I don’t, mainly because I have no friggin idea why these people would support a tyrant like Castro.
I mean, most of the Hollywood Castro supporters are leftists which supposedly stand for things such as:
Freedom of Speech
Why then, would an actor like, say, Danny Glover, an African-American who, no doubt, is a follower of the teachings of Martin Luther King support a regime where MLK’s words aren’t even allowed to be read. It makes no sense at all to me.
Could it be that these Hollywood types are so anti-Bush that they would hop into bed with anyone who has stated a disgerard and general disdain for our President? The enemy of my enemy is my ally type of thing?
I really have no answer, but would like to know what you all think.
