**** 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.
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.”
**** UPDATE: Reader Todd writes:
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.
