Last Friday I asked, Speaking of sh**holes, where were you?,
Today Rachel Campos-Duffy wants too know Who is Sean Penn to lecture Trump about compassion?
So what has Sean Penn said about these horrible indignities and abuses suffered by the Venezuelan people? Nothing. Where is his “compassionate” op-ed to show concern for the victims of Venezuelan socialism and repression? Silence.
Well, I dug through this blog’s archives, and found this gem from 2011: Back then Hugo Chávez was still alive, and Sean had invited Charlie Sheen to Haiti, as if the blighted country hadn’t had enough yet, and Charlie accepted.
Sean’s meeting with Hugo Chávez (link in Portuguese) this weekend to discuss Hugo’s proposal to send a goodwill peace commission to Libya. Chávez claims (link in Spanish) Sean’s worried about what’s going on in Libya, as if there weren’t enough reasons to worry about what’s going on in Venezuela.
Once Sean and Hugo work out the Libya situation, Sean will be heading to Haiti with Charlie next week.
Sean wasn’t the only American actor hangin’ with Hugo. Kevin Spacey and Tim Robbins also did, and Hugo bankrolled Danny Glover to the tune of $20 million to produce two movies, [CORRECTION old link; go here for a current link] one of which was – wait for it – a bio of Toussaint D’Overture, the Haitian slave that led the revolt against the French and declared himself emperor.
Haiti’s per capita GDP is US$739.60.
So I ask again, where are they?
