Fisking Sean Penn's Idiotic Editorial on Castro's Death

Today I was gifted with this astonishing (but not surprising) piece of idiocy from one of America’s foremost lovers of oppressive dictatorships and the men who run them, Comrade Sean Penn! He posted a rambling piece at the Daily Beast full of idiocy and whiney complaints about those MEANIES who were happy that Castro is dead. For good measure he doubled down about Castro: The Defender of The Poor People and the meanies who don’t like him. Those same MEANIES didn't vote for the Anointed Pantsuit either, and so Comrade Penn has a lot on his scrawny little libprog chest that he needs to get off. So let's have some fun!

My comments are in bold, Comrade Penn’s are in italics.

I was an American abroad, working overseas on this recent election night 2016. By midnight I was able to put myself to sleep, confidently, arrogantly, supremely certain that the election would go to Hillary Clinton, if not the Democrats at large.

Comrade Penn is kind enough to actually admit a by-now very evident truth about the privileged liberal elite that he belongs to. They are arrogant. They are so confident (another word he uses) that they know what is best for America that anyone who opposes them must be a knuckle dragging imbecile, probably from one of those intolerable fly-over states.

Comrade Penn is merely one of the most prominent liberals who jet around the world in their private jets and lecture everyone on their need to get with the program like a good little serf and follow the guidance of their betters.  Comrade Penn is especially odious, but his beliefs are shared by the vast majority of Hollywood and the media. And along with them, Comrade Penn never met an authoritarian dictator that he didn't like, just so long as he wore a cool uniform and hated America.

When I woke, I woke to the new norm. Donald Trump, a petty, narcissistic, hate-mongering, reality show star who had spent his entire business life ripping off the less-privileged had prevailed. I went numb, then got up and like many, I suppose, dragged myself through a day of utter bewilderment.

Its actually funny how many of the pejoratives that Comrade Penn hurls at Donald Trump actually describe himself. Its also funny to hear that he “dragged himself through the day in utter bewilderment”, presumably at the fact that those...PEASANTS dared to go against what they were told by their...petty(seen Buzzfeed lately?), narcissistic(This from a man who is almost as bad as EX-President Carter at making everything about himself), hate-mongering(let me see, Black lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street, Dakota Access Pipeline Protesters...all movements built on love and embracing one’s fellow man peaceably. Practically Gandhi-like.), reality show(Trump had an actual reality show, Comrade Penn is part of The Traveling SJW Circus of Mentally Disadvantaged Liberals) betters. The latter is admittedly more fun to watch in these Post-November 8th days.

For others, the election of Donald Trump will be an opportunity to bitch about how stupid our “hick” country is. Some may even take the Monday morning opportunity to bitch about Hillary Clinton, a woman who offered her exceptional mind and experience, and bravely took a bashing like no other simply to serve the American people.

The “others” Comrade Penn is referring to here also includes himself. How DARE those ignorant HICKS vote for someone other than The Anointed Pantsuit.
Also “exceptional mind and experience”? Granted, Hillary Clinton is exceptionally clever at getting child molesters off the hook, see her 1975 defense of a man who was as guilty as could be of this heinous act. She got him off on a technicality and then laughed about it. On tape no less. Okay scratch the “exceptional mind” bit, and replace it with “exceptionally compliant and lying media that covers for her”. As for her “experience”, she has absolutely amassed a decades-long resume that is full of...lying, cheating, covering up the victims of sexual abuse and her husband’s predatory attitude towards women. She has absolutely no accomplishments and indeed, got to where she is solely by riding Bill Clinton's coatails.

All Hillary has ever done is “serve” herself and her interests, right down to her and her equally despicable husband using the Clinton Foundation as a pay to play scheme for enriching themselves. In the White House, her opportunities for graft and bribes would have been even larger, and she would have absolutely exploited them to the max. And Bill would have had interns again to boot, something that no doubt he was looking forward to.

“Bravely took a bashing”? You mean like when she was called on the carpet for all of the above, plus for using an unsecured email server that was compromised, plus for trying to hide the evidence, plus for playing dumb for her congressional inquiry where she attempted to evade responsibility for the deaths of Americans at Benghazi - infamously claiming “what difference does it make” regarding the fact that four Americans died thanks to her brainless interference? That poor, misunderstood woman.

A climate change denier is running the EPA transition for the president elect. A White House counsel will come into the new administration so burdened with conflict of interest issues, lawsuits and the fear of depositions, that the only remedy may be to count on the new Attorney General and a right-leaning Supreme Court, to whitewash and bend us away from American principles simply so that this incoming Commander in Chief may politically survive his four years.

What? You mean somebody who doesn’t believe in the High Church of Anthropogenic Global Warming is running the EPA? Somebody who doesn’t swallow the lies, evasions, and charlatanism that fuel the loony environmentalists and their followers? Somebody who might actually reign in the EPA, the rogue agency whose burdensome mandates destroy people’s lives and livelihoods, makes vehicles more expensive for the poor, make heating more expensive for the poor, abrogates ever increasing powers to itself, and sneers at any oversight or accountability? The agency who has added so many job killing regulations and taxes that American businesses are being driven out of the country or out of business entirely? The agency whose apparatchiks constantly seek to enrich themselves and expand their fiefdoms at the expense of the little people their policies hurt? The horror!

Its also hilarious to hear Comrade Penn’s bloviations about “American principles” considering that he is about to lionize and defend Fidel Castro.

What have the 75,000 coalminers—yup, that’s the total they number in the U.S.—won in a world that will die without clean energy? In a competitive job creation scale, in which in California alone there are already 550,000 jobs in renewables?

Die without clean energy? Hyperbole much Comrade Penn? Well let’s see, the cleanest energy is nuclear...which liberals hate and try to shut down wherever possible. So clearly they aren't worried about global warming. Also, nice to see Comrade Penn once again lay bare his hatred and contempt for “little people” such as the hundreds of thousands of people who benefit from the coal mining industry directly and indirectly in states such as West Virginia. Not to mention the benefits resulting from cheaper electricity and a reliable power grid, most of which come from coal plants. Thanks to Comrade Penn’s policies, the poor and the middle in America pay higher utility and transportation costs, a hidden tax that reduces their take-home pay. In the socialist wonderland of California, over a million households live in “energy poverty” which means that more than 10 percent of their income goes to the energy costs of their households.

And about those 550,000 renewable jobs in California...even granting Comrade Penn the benefit of the doubt on that statistic (which is only done for argument's sake, as just like any other Communist/Fascist, any number quoted should be viewed with suspicion), a recent study by the EPA friendly and green energy supporter Mark Jacobsen (of Stanford University) admits that the shift to 100 percent so-called “renewable energy” nation-wide would cost almost four million jobs nation wide. That’s probably conservative too, given how liberals like to soft-pedal numbers that don’t favor themselves. And even Jacobsen’s claimed green jobs from doing the transition results in a total loss of 1.2 million jobs, 221 thousand in California alone.

Also, thanks to the high cost of doing business in California, over 9000 businesses have left that particular socialist “paradise” since 2008. That’s a lot of jobs gone. Eventually the state will be reduced to Starbucks and Tesla, with all other jobs fled. But blithe dismissals of basic math and economics are par for the course for the libprogs, and Comrade Penn’s staggering ignorance/stupidity on the subject(now there’s a hole with no bottom) hasn't been exhausted yet!

I just flipped on CNN. The president-elect is dancing, or tweeting actually, “Fidel is dead!” I can hear him singing it to the tune of “Ding Dong the Witch is Dead.” Cut to an image of…(t)housands dancing in delight. Indeed, dancing at the death of another human being. Of Fidel Castro.

Of course they are dancing. Castro tortured, killed, exiled, and put into camps tens of thousands of Cubans. He was a vicious dictator who brooked no opposition, and retaliated violently against any who were unfortunate enough to speak against him.
Castro executed Battista’s supporters by means of shooting them, some of them in front of stadiums of people. There were no free elections in Cuba under Castro’s dictatorship, no freedom of speech, no freedom of religion, no right to jury trial, and no freedom to live your life as one saw fit. Armando Valladares spent 22 years in prison for DARING to be a dissident. His crime? Refusing to recant his christian beliefs. For this he spent time in horrible conditions, including eight years naked in a ten by four foot cell. Mind you, to Comrade Penn and his fellow libprogs, anyone who professes Christianity is a backwards xenophobe who deserves to be punished. Castro’s suppression of religion and banning of Christmas from 1969-1998 was viewed as a feature, not a bug by Comrade Penn and his fellow liberals. One of the most infamous incidents came in 1994 when Castro’s thugs opened fire on a group of people trying to escape from their socialist paradise, killing 37 escapees, most of them women and children. Over the decades of Castro’s despotic rule, over a million Cubans attempted to escape the island into exile.

So yes, the Cuban people who escaped from his hellish prison of socialism celebrated his death. Apparently, Comrade Penn feels that the proper response to Hitler’s death should have been some sober reflection about the progress he had made in advancing the German economy and creating the autobahn and the Volkswagon.

CNN centers its reporting on the death of Castro in the bastion of right-wing Cuban conservatism. Not in Cuba, but rather in the United States. Would they have polled the Birmingham Etiquette Society for comment in the aftermath of Martin Luther King’s assassination?

I can’t believe I am defending CNN even mildly here, but it's just faintly possible that they might not have been able to report on Castro’s death from know due to the whole dictatorship thing there preventing any real press coverage, even from the fawning American media. Which is strange, because usually the American press easily gets into Cuba to film, as it is well known that they will do whatever it takes to produce a Triumph of the Will level piece about the superiority of the Cuban system to America. Or it could be that they somehow decided to actually report the real news, instead of whatever the latest Democratic Party talking points were. One way or another I guarantee that they will be back to bashing America like a good little libprog organisation tomorrow.

But if in our compassion we blindly submit to classifications as defined by the broken-hearted or the bitter, then we better d*** well be ready to accept the NRA, too, as a “brutal dictator” when we talk to the mothers and fathers of Newtown.

Ah yes, the NRA , the favorite boogeyman of the liberals (along with Christmas, Christians, Israel, and conservative voters who cling to their guns and religion). Castro may have killed tens of thousand of people and brutally suppressed all forms of dissent...but the NRA is the morally reprehensible one.

Also, “bitter”? According to Comrade Penn, if your parents were tortured and killed by Castro’s thugs and you don’t still support Castro as a “freedom fighter” you are...bitter. Well good, glad we got that out of the way.

I’m reminded of Steven Weinberg’s suggestion, “If you want to make good people do bad things, you’ll need religion.” In this case, that religion is the denunciation of a leader who was far more a profound symbol of revolution than he was a boogeyman or beast.

Yep, the way Fidel Castro would wear two Rolexes at a time to show off his wealth is truly an inspiring “symbol of the revolution.” The way he enriched himself and became a billionaire while his people live in crumbling cities with rolling blackouts and no money? Truly heroic. The way he attempted to provoke thermonuclear war in the Cuban-Missile Crisis? Also inspiring. At least to the idiots, cretins, and other misanthropes of the left. But I repeat myself.

Fidel Castro was many things. His shift from the socialist advocate of democracy to a form of totalitarian communist is one worthy of great study, and has provoked significant debate. (Worthy also of consideration from outposts beyond Miami, Florida.) His enemies today, the rational and the irrational, the knowledgeable and the unknowledgeable, have a podium that is speaking loudly enough for itself.

Shift? Castro simply showed his true colors just as soon as he came to power. And then spent almost sixty years clinging to it, lionized by the adoring American liberals and media, who are always ready to praise anybody who hates America and rules as a brutal authoritarian despot. Kim Jong-un would have the same attitude from American liberals, but his style of wearing clothes that are vaguely reminiscent of Hillary Clinton's pantsuits simply doesn't work for him. Liberals need their totalitarian dictators to look good in some type of vaguely military uniform, one that they always wear. That way the t-shirts are stylish.

No matter their position towards their leader, the basic nature of Cubans is so alive with pride and community that once again, in recollection, I am struck by the arbitrary terminology “brutal dictator” being attributed to Castro.

The reason the “arbitrary terminology of ‘brutal dictator’” is applied to Castro is because both words exactly describe him. I know words are hard Comrade Penn, but you can at least understand these two? One is only two syllables while the other is admittedly three, but they are fairly basic concepts. “Brutal” means “savagely violent”, and “dictator means “a ruler who wields absolute power.according to the dictionary. Castro is perfectly described by both, which is why people who live in the Real World describe him using those epithets, among many, many others.

Cuba is a poor country, but it lives without road rage, and with healthcare. It lives without raging lawlessness and with literacy, a country that exports more doctors worldwide than any other.
We should look very hard at the pride of Cubans who live in Cuba, so much of it built on their own commitment to an ideological revolution and its leader, to its sovereign resilience, as well as those sober critics in search of their greater dreams.

You know, it's funny. I talked to an actual Cuban the other day. I know, crazy right? And she told me about the medical care in Cuba. The filthy hospitals, the dirty walls with blood on them, the lack of medicine. When her sister gave birth and she came to visit her from the States, the hospital was so dirty that she cried. She talked about actual blood smeared on the walls. Others have reported that patients have to bring their own toilet paper and pay for their own medicines if they want any form of care. But hey, other than that it's free!  

Digging more deeply into the Cuban Health care system, there are actually three forms of health care in Cuba. There is the one for rich liberal foreigners who primarily come over for vanity surgeries like Botox and breast enhancements (and to make films claiming that Cuba's healthcare system is amazing and puts America's to shame). They pay in hard currency, something the regime desperately needs. So they get large, clean, well-equipped hospitals and staff. You will notice that money changed hands thus implying that this isn't universal health care. And you would be right. But don't tell Michael Moore that.

The second form of health care in Cuba is for the elite, such as the Communist Party rulers and the other apparatchiks. They also get great health care. But the majority of Cubans only have access to the third system, one of crumbling hospitals with filthy equipment, and no medicine other than what they bring in with them.

I am not dancing at the death of Fidel Castro. Nor am I celebrating him. I’m remembering him. I’m thinking. Trying to protect the clarity of my own thoughts against this fog of pervasive simplification and anger.

Beg to disagree. You clearly loved Fidel Castro and thought of him as the ideal leader, worthy of defense from those who would try to point out his many crimes against the Cuban people. You are a contemptible lying libprog and your idiocies have no better commentary than that well known retort from from Billy Madison: “what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.”


  1. Sean Penn for president of Venezuela.

  2. Sean Penn for president of Venezuela.

  3. I believe he is holding out for Cuba. After all, they are already advanced to the point where there is no organzied opposition to El Supremo's policies. Venezuela still is backwards enough to have some peasants openly disagreeing with the dictates of their Benevolent Communist Overlord

Partial Guide to Alt-Right Websites

Its an interesting time to be an American, especially if you are interested in politics and socioeconomics. The Internet has enabled many other-wise marginalized voices to be heard, and communities to sprout up around shared beliefs and goals.

One of the largest and fastest growing of these segments is the loose collection of websites known collectively as the "alt-right." While differing in many respects and exhibiting a tremendous degree of variety in their approach and tactics, the alt-right is largely unified around a respect for tradition and masculinity and is committed to largely libertarian ideals.  

There is much written that I do not endorse on these sites, but I do endorse a large portion of it and feel that Reality Hammer belongs in the same general political spectrum. Disagreements among intelligent men are nothing new, and are a very healthy thing, so long as these disagreements are carried on by rational adults who use the tools of logic to debate and disagre…

A Response to the Refugee Crisis

Trump recently issued an executive order temporarily barring individuals from seven countries from coming to the United States. From the panic and outrage emanating from the left, you would think he was dropping thousands of bombs on most of these countries. Oh wait that was Obama and Bush.

 The response from left has been the predictable outrage. However, the response from Christian left has been disturbing. By now, if you have been on Facebook, you have probably been inundated with posts and articles claiming you are not being Christian if we do not accept refugees.

Here are few common threads of these posts.

1. Theyare citing some verses from the Old Testament about welcoming the foreigner. 

Note these are usually the first to shriek about the dangers of theocracy in America. To watch their brains melt, ask them if they are also planning on stoning adulterers as well. The Bible isn't a buffet where you get to pick different verses you like. Instead, it is a series of dispensati…
