Sean Penn (August 17, 1960 (age 57), Santa Monica, California) is an extreme far-left Oscar-winning actor and director, whose best work was playing a dimwitted, underachieving teenager in Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Penn is known for his anti-Iraq war stance and his support of Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez.
Sean's father, a Russian Jew whose family had settled in Massachusetts, was briefly blacklisted from Hollywood for associating with Communists, but became a leading actor and director, opening the way for his son's career.
Penn has also called U.S. President Bush "our country’s and our Constitution’s most devastating enemy" and said he has caused "enormous damage" to "this country and mankind" and "may bring fascism to America". Penn has also called for President Bush and Vice President Cheney's impeachment. Penn has said Bush, Cheney, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and former CIA director George Tenet "should be in [expletive deleted] jail".
Penn also supports the homosexual agenda, saying during an award acceptance speech (won for his portrayal of gay politician and activist Harvey Milk) that "it is a good time for those who voted for the ban against gay marriage to sit and reflect and anticipate their great shame".
