Not just any far-left Hollywood idiot. Our favorite far-left Hollywood idiot, Chavez apologist Sean Penn.
Sean Penn, during his Thursday evening appearance on TBS’s “Conan,” dubbed Dick Cheney an “embittered bacteria of humanity.”
“It’s always a surprise to me to remember that, through bionic technology and so on, this guy’s still here,” Penn said.
“And I wanted to give him the credit, since you mentioned him—I mean, these are the guys, he and President Bush and some others, who invented Daesh, or ISIS,” Penn continued (Daesh is an Arabic name for ISIS.) “I mean, they really are that which created it, and so I wanted to give him a shout-out, thanks for that.”
See, if you throw “Daesh” out there to show you, um, did a Google search, you can then spout fictional nonsense and have it sound well-informed. Probably even have it spread around social media by the same idiots who get all of their news from the Daily Show and think Stephen Colbert should be president. Truth to power, man.
“We have people like Harvey Milk, who were beautiful, brilliant, impactful guys, and, you know — it’s just no good deed goes unpunished, and then you’ve got the Cheneys. This is just me musing,” he remarked. Penn played Harvey Milk, the first openly gay person elected to office in California, in a 2008 film.
Milk, of course, was assassinated by an angry Democratic city supervisor who resigned his job but then decided he wanted it back, only to be rebuffed. I’m sure Milk’s assassination is also somehow Dick Cheney’s fault. It’s the grand unified theory of Cheney. Also Cheney’s fault? The burning of Joan of Arc. Part of the GOP’s war on women.
