Brits to Sean Penn

You’re A Moron ...

And Your Movies SUCK!!!

Members of British Parliament are lining up to slam Sean Penn ... and his movies -- trashing him over recent comments he made concerning Britain’s stance over the Falkland Islands.
 
In case you don't know: Britain and Argentina have both claimed sovereignty over the Falklands since the early 19th-Century ... and went to war with each other over the territory in 1982.
 
Penn called the Brits' continuing claims over the Falklands "colonialist, ludicrous and archaic" -- and got their dander up even further by criticizing their recent decision to deploy Prince William there.
 
One member of the British Parliament called Penn’s views "nonsense." Patrick Mercer, a famed British Army veteran, also ripped Penn – calling his views "moronic.”

Mercer added, Penn "seems to know nothing about the situation" -- and "A good number of his movies have been turkeys, so I suppose we shouldn’t expect much better coming out of his mouth."

I'm not a die hard Sean Penn fan but he's absolutely right on. What the hell does Great Britain want a piece of crap island 4000 miles away with no economic value, it's ridiculous, give it back to Argentina, this is the 21st century time to start acting like it.

Great Britain is rapidly turning into a third world country and Orwellian police state. Maybe the honourable Member of Parliament and the esteemed Mr. Mercer should worry about that instead of defending the "Empire" against the utterly dangerous terrorist threats of former Mr. Ciccone's publicised opinions?

And BTW, by Mr. Mercer's logic, the opinion of an actor becomes "better" with the number of tickets for cinema seats sold? He probably shouldn't call anyone a moron unless he's begging for "takes one to know one" taunts.

Oh, and: Sean Penn sucks!

Oh come on people. I was waiting for Sean Penn and his pal Tim Robbins to change the world and make it a better place for everyone, except for Jews since Penn certainly doesn't like us. His attitude towards Israel has always been transparent and not in a positive way.

I also agree that his movies are basically him walking through the frame-noting interesting about that. He's an over-rated actor and takes himself way to seriously. Smoking a few packs of cigs a day can't be helping him be clear minded that's for sure.

Seems clear to the international community that the ludicrous, archaic and aggressive colonialists are the Argies: having stolen their entire country, sparked border disputes with Chile and Paraguay, they now once again try to steal islands that they have never owned and which were claimed by Britain 51 years before Argentina existed. The matter was settled in 1982. Perhaps this moron could do some basic research before opening his mouth?

Sean Penn is a low life druggie looking person and why is his opinion so important. Maybe he should help his fellow americans and children before he opens his ugly old mouth about Haiti..How many wives and kids, come on loud mouth put your money on USA
