Commie-Symp: Actress Charlize Theron Denounces Castro Assassination Attempts, Pushes Trade w/ Cuba

By Debbie Schlussel
**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE ****
Unfortunately, Charlize Theron is yet another beautiful Hollywood actress with very ugly views.
She produced a documentary, “East of Havana,” about hip-hop in Cuba.

Commie Symp Actress Charlize Theron

Theron was interviewed about it in this month’s issue of the far-left fashionista mag with a clear agenda, Marie Claire. While Theron does denounce the lack of freedom of speech in Cuba, she seems to be pushing trade and “communication” with Cuba. It’s interesting that people gave their lives to try to depose the Fidel Castro regime and restore free speech. And, yet, this Hollywood airhead calls them “just . . . it’s like high school.” Huh?
Say Anything Blog reports that Theron made even more whacked out commie-symp statements on CNN. Hot Air has video.
Theron says her next “project” is “Battle in Seattle,” glorifying rioting, grungy, far-left protesters at the WTO meetings in Seattle, which is written by her boyfriend Stuart Townsend. She says it’s “incredibly important to the entire world.” You keep thinking that, Charlize. Sounds like a likely Academy Award nominee.
I’ve posted a scan of the Marie Claire interview, below, but here are a few excerpts, beginning with the good and ending with the airheaded ugly:

Theron: Let there be freedom of speech [in Cuba]. A lot of times, Americans will go, “Health care [in Cuba] is good, schooling is good; socially, everything is there for them.” That’s true. [DS: A lot of us would beg to differ.] But is it really any better to be literate but not be able to speak your mind?
Q: It looks like Castro will die of natural causes now, after all those assassination attempts. How do you think he stayed in power for so long?
Theron: Well that’s what happens with regimes. When we look back on Cuban history, I think the biggest thing we’ll feel is, it was just so unnecessary. The fact that there hasn’t been any kind of communication between America and Cuba after all these years, it’s just . . . it’s like high school.

Blah, blah, blah. I don’t know about Secondary School in her native South Africa, but the men in the Bay of Pigs and others who tried to depose and/or assassinate Castro were heroes, not “like high school.”

Debbie,
Here’s a site that Hollywood hasn’t seen or would care to: The Real Cuba.

Charlize Theron needs to have the contents of that site stamped into her very tiny brain. Ditto for Steven Spielberg, Oliver Stone and all the pro-Castro commie symps who are clueless on Cuba but spout off about it anyway.

This “lady” is so far removed from the average person in Cuba, she wouldn’t have much way to know what is really going on, nor what has gone on. Communism is Evil.

All white South Africans should keep their ugly traps shut about anything having to do with oppression.
There is something that bothers me about US relations with communist countries that maybe you can explain. Why do we have “relations” with Vietnam but not with Cuba?

You really should read your links. The IMDB review you cite actually claims the film is predjudiced AGAINST Cuba. Having seen the film last year I wholeheartedly agree. Charlize paid for the film, but it was directed by some anti-Castro zealots. Every comment that made in the film seemed to be calculated for political effect. Even though one rapper was shown wearing a Karl Marx shirt (if I remember right), they only allow his criticisms of Cuba to get airtime. And the climax where the hip-hop festival is cancelled because of a Hurricane Charley, but blamed on the Government’s fear of these hip-hoppers is really very poorly done. They treat the Hurricane like it was nothing, when it did huge damage and required the Govt’s full attention and resources.
The very fact that Cuba allowed this film to be made and that these renegade hip-hop groups to exist and perform their critical songs shows the reality is different than Cuban-Americans tell us. Only America put up roadblocks for this film being made.
Rappers are rebels no matter where they live. By treating these rappers as political pawns and not the unique, unclassifiable people they are, they lost a chance to make a worthwhile film.
It seems calling for dialogue and for families to be able to visit each other is too much. Most clear headed people – and ALL Cubans – would say we need more dialogie, not less.

This bubble head actress should be sentenced to live in one of Castro’s gulags. Is this moron aware of the suffering of writers,film makers and other artists who have been imprisoned and killed by Castro? Cubans are not even free to use an uncensored internet. It’s a disgrace that we tolerate this Communist prison colony. The Iron Curtain still surrounds the victims of tyrany who live on Castro’s Devil’s Island. American Leftist hypocrites who sympathize with Castro are traitors to the cause of human freedom.

It never ceases to amaze me how a) cultural notables feel that their political opinions are of such import (whether conservative or liberal, btw), and b) how outsiders w/ no direct ties to COO-buh feel a need to chime in on it.
If any Hollywood actor needs to be appointed (anointed?) the “face” of American sympathy for Cuba, it ought to be someone like Andy Garcia (who was born there).

I’ve only seen one role of Ms. Theron’s – the lesbian serial murder in Monster. That story was high on victimology and short on criminology. When sentenced to die for her murders, she cried to the court “You’re going to kill a woman who was raped?!”
What (a transparent) sleight of hand! Monster’s concept of tragedy is that “the system” pulverized an already downtrodden woman – instead of it being that a woman who had been raped and committed involuntary manslaughter had failed to find legal and psychological remedies for her ordeals.
I know that Theron didn’t write Monster, but since it’s how I know her, it’s “the lens” through which I intially view anything she chooses to do off-screen.

I’ve seen that video clip of her interview and I actually found it amusing how she like all of her insightfull colleagues from hollowhead could make vacuous statements as such. And why does she have a flaming rapture for a dictator like Castro.FHI,most cubans hate the lifestyle under Castro’s tyranny. They want freedom,liberty,rights, and a more democratic oriented government that we dearly value. Anyone who is sane could fathom the hell of living under a communist jurisdiction with maybe the exception of Charlize Thornhead but she is not the only one who is obsequious towards global tryrants. As you can recall when Sean Penn wrote and article glorifying Iran. What else can you expect from a doped up hollywood icon who can’t differentiate between treason and patriotism. To them its the same denotation which tells you alot about their intelligence.

She and Jimmy Carter should go to Cuba and live together in bliss.

o.t. – i must agree with the comment you made at hotair regarding ann coulter (who this family loves) about not knowing how to make a comeback to geraldine ferraro regarding the imam praying over the dnc winter meeting. i was highly disappointed and as we were watching this unfold on h&c, all i could say was, “come on, ann – tell them! the name of Yeshua should NEVER be mentioned in the same universe as the pedophilic non-prophet moehammad! please say it!”
if you’d like, you may see my “all hail hitlery” post at my blog.
what a bunch of pantywaists!
who is charlez thermometer? do people really pay much heed to these dhimmiwits?
I LIKE ANN, TOO, AND WE ARE FRIENDS. BUT SHE KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT IMAM AL-HUSAINY AND THE STUFF ABOUT AL-HUSAINY LEADING THE HEZBOLLAH RALLIES WAS STOLEN FROM MY WORK, WITHOUT CREDIT OR ATTRIBUTION, AND WITHOUT HAVING ME ON THE SHOW. I WOULD HAVE BLOWN FERRARO AWAY ON THIS TOPIC, BECAUSE I ACTUALLY KNOW A LITTLE SOMETHING–ACTUALLY A LOT–ABOUT IT. SEAN KNOWS IT. HE WOULD NOT LIKE HIS WORK BEING STOLEN AND NEITHER DO I. EVERYONE ELSE GAVE ME CREDIT. HE AND HIS SHOW DIDN’T. THEY JUST STOLE, AND THAT’S ACTUALLY BAD FOR A NEWS ORGANIZATION, B/C THEY DID NOT INDEPENDENTLY VERIFY, NOR COULD THEY HAVE, WHAT I WROTE ABOUT AL-HUSAINY (BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT THERE–ONLY I WAS, AND I RISKED MY LIFE; SO THAT THEY COULD STEAL FROM ME?).
THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME FOX NEWS HAS STOLEN MY WORK. AND I’M TIRED OF IT. THEIR CHICAGO BUREAU CHIEF MET WITH ME AND ASKED ME TO HELP HIM ON NEWS STORIES. BUT WHY SHOULD I, WHEN THEY DON’T GIVE ME CREDIT, COMPENSATION, OR ANY INCLUSION? ANYWHERE ELSE, THAT’S CALLED SLAVERY.

Don’t let The Man keep you down, Debbie!…uh oh, wait a minute, no me, of course.
Thanks for the Charlize “Body by Fisher Brains by Mattel” Theron article. I love reading these because there is nothing funnier than a celeb trying to be an intellectual, especially on politics. Ever noticed the more they talk the less they make sense?
Thanks to the pinko celebs this country might get back on track next election because every time they speak it reminds us why the Democrats are bad for this country and need to be kept out of power.

The_Man on February 7, 2007 at 12:41 am

Hi Debbie,
Kudos on keeping us abreast of all the pertinent intellectual spewings from Whorelywood. Anyway, sometimes I wonder why we even print what these wealthy idiots say. Most, if not all, are educationally challenged and have no clue as to reality versus their crusade-du-jour. As to their patriotism, most are yellow and won’t scream until their personal liberties are challenged. Ever wonder why the terrorists aren’t really looking at their town? They’re terrorist media “TOOLS”. I’d love to see them cornered and have to actually defend their country or, better yet, hold a real job where you aren’t allowed to “pretend”.

FreeAmerican on February 7, 2007 at 8:09 am

Wouldn’t it be nice if she would sit there and look pretty, and leave the thinking to the rest of us?

Stealthkix on February 7, 2007 at 11:14 am

CHINA, RUSSIA, VIETNAM!!!
Amerikkka has no problems dealing with communists unless the NIMBY factor kicks in…or is it a problem with SPICKS???

EminemsRevenge on February 7, 2007 at 2:11 pm

After reading the Urkel of Blogging, aka EminemsRevenge, post, Charlize doesn’t sound so dumb after all.

Have any of you actually been to Cuba? I’ve travelled right across it (and avoided the tourist resorts like the plague), and the major reason the country is in such a mess is because of the US blockade! But even then you will find people who have benefited from the education system and – pre-tightening of sanctions – fine medical system.
I don’t agree with the lack of democracy in Cuba, of course, but that doesn’t automatically make it hell on Earth. What makes it hell on Earth, in some people’s minds, is the enormous lack of resources that is a direct result of the US-lead sanctions.
I mean, I’m sorry that there are Cubans who don’t want Havana to become a playground of drugs, prostitution and casinos for rich Americans, as it was prior to the revolution, but that’s the way it is.
Americans really need to get over the missile crisis – it was as much a result of American interference in Central America as it was Castro’s or Kruschev’s.
Many of the Cubans I met were actually pretty happy with life – in fact they were some of the nicest, happiest people I’ve met in 15 years of exploring the world. Obviously they’d appreciate access to decent medical supplies, but until the US chills out about a 60-year-old incident and stops punishing them for it, they won’t get what they need.

I read your articles and I like what you point out about people. Charlize Theron is a nice actress! I think I should send her a pair of super strong snakebite proof boots, pants, shirts,gloves,etc! This way when she gets to cuba for the first time,or mavbe she’s been there alresdy, but the commies protected her! Anyway! Snakeproof things are needed even when you talk with young socialist/communists! Joanne Chesimark is still down there, I guess! Living the good life! I guess alot of lefties travel to see her to give her moral support! The great conditions there, are overwhelming! About the joy for communism/socialism, Charlize just needs to look at the current Administrations success! But then again she’s been snake bit before she ever went to cuba,so there is probably not much hope for her seeing objectively! I’ll continue with hope and change of mind,for Charlize Theron!
