Sean Penn, an actor which I specifically used to admire, lost all his credits in my eyes since became really loud and progressive, supporting the Liberal ideas.
But, after I read this latest piece about Sean Penn, he might just retrieve his respect in my heart.
Apparently, the Liberals have gone too radical for Sean’s taste, and now, he reached for the “red pills” and calling the radical Left – “Soviet Left”!
Now I like this, I REALLY like this!
According to the Daily Wire,
“Sean Penn sat down with former late-night talk show host Conan O’Brien about “cancel culture” and what the left is now doing in terms of “representing” people…and it’s clear that Penn is pissed and he’s had enough – and Conan too, for that matter.
“Empathy is a very important word and also forgiveness,” said O’Brien. “We found that someone did something in 1979 that is now not appropriate. They’re dead to us.” O’Brien went on to describe cancel culture as “very Soviet,” saying, “People can also be forgiven. If they even need forgiving. What happened to that?”
Penn agreed with O’Brien, calling the practice “ludicrous.
The two men then turned to how the trend is impacting their particular genres of show business with Penn pointing out that he would no longer be considered for a part like groundbreaking gay activist Harvey Milk because he’s straight.
“Today, almost certainly I would not be permitted to be cast in that role,” Penn said. “We’re living in a time when, if you’re playing a gay lead character, you’d have to be a gay man or a trans character. And there have been these casting issues.”
He then warned that the Left has pushed the cause of “representation” too far. “When you have a period of evolution that certainly has an opportunity for people who have had fewer opportunities to move forward. That has to be supported, and yet in this pendulum swing society that we’re in, you wonder at some point if only Danish Princes can play Hamlet. It is, I believe, too restrictive. People are looking for gotcha moments and to criticize.”
O’Brien likened Penn’s experience to the current tendency among late-night talk show hosts to make comedy political—a trend he has pointedly resisted because he said, it can lead to “losing your way” when it comes to being funny.”
I am personally really thrilled that one of my fav actors have returned to normal!
