Sean Penn authored an article for Rolling Stone about his clandestine meeting with notorious drug cartel kingpin and escaped convict el Chapo whom he met with in a jungle clearing in Mexico three months before he was captured.
Mexican actress Kate del Castillo was part of this venture and now the FBI reportedly wants to interview both of them. Since Penn is not a reporter, he might have violated the law. It does sound criminal.
Rolling Stone published the Penn story Saturday.
Sean Penn’s father was an open communist and Sean is as far-left as one can get. He is an admirer of Chavez and was mentored in Marxist ideology.
Penn’s article is that of an apologist and it’s disgusting. Excerpts follow.
At four years old, in ’64, I was digging for imaginary treasures, unneeded, in my parents’ middleclass American backyard while he was hand-drawing fantasy pesos that, if real, might be the only path for he and his family to dream beyond peasant farming. And while I was surfing the waves of Malibu at age nine, he was already working in the marijuana and poppy fields of the remote mountains of Sinaloa, Mexico.
He calls him a Robin Hood helping the people:
[El Chapo is]…a Robin Hood-like figure who provided much-needed services in the Sinaloa mountains, funding everything from food and roads to medical relief. By the time of his second escape from federal prison, he had become a figure entrenched in Mexican folklore.
The Chavez-admirer, knows what el Chapo is and didn’t take pride in keeping secrets but Penn did it anyway.
I take no pride in keeping secrets that may be perceived as protecting criminals, nor do I have any gloating arrogance at posing for selfies with unknowing security men. But I’m in my rhythm. Everything I say to everyone must be true. As true as it is compartmentalized. The trust that el Chapo had extended to us was not to be fucked with.
Who knows, maybe Penn deliberately helped the FBI but didn’t want that out for obvious reasons. The FBI reported that they were able to track el Chapo down because of Penn’s clandestine meeting.
Describing the capture, Attorney General Arely Gomez said that investigators had been aided in locating Guzman by documented contacts between his attorneys and “actors and producers” she said were interested in making a film about him, though she did not name them.
I seriously doubt Penn willfully aided the FBI because then Penn wrote this:
El Chapo is a businessman first, and only resorts to violence when he deems it advantageous to himself or his business interests.
As an American citizen, I’m drawn to explore what may be inconsistent with the portrayals our government and media brand upon their declared enemies.
The declared enemies includes el Chapo. Penn is opposed to Americans being put away for taking drugs but most would agree with that. People being put away now, however, are dealing drugs. We are a long way away from the Rockefeller laws.
It’s never the fault of criminals for Penn.
For Penn, el Chapo is this:
This simple man from a simple place, surrounded by the simple affections of his sons to their father, and his toward them, does not initially strike me as the big bad wolf of lore. His presence conjures questions of cultural complexity and context, of survivalists and capitalists, farmers and technocrats, clever entrepreneurs of every ilk, some say silver, and others lead.
Ms. de Castillo trusts el Chapo more than the Mexican government.
Who knows, maybe she’s right about that.
What follows are two minutes of the interview in which the vicious murdering bloodthirsty savage el Chapo claims he needed a job and there was no other way to make money. He isn’t responsible because if it wasn’t him it would be somebody else. He isn’t violent, he only defends himself. He NEVER looks for trouble. Nothing is his fault – he needed a job. He sounds like a liberal.
There is more information in the next video. The narrator sounds like a robot but there is good information.
You can read more at Rolling Stone. The title of the article is el Chapo Speaks. They should rename it to The Commie Meets the Gangster. Read about el Chapo in Chicago on this link. Google victims of el Chapo and see what he does to people – beheadings, carving off body parts, killing families and on and on. He is a very real presence among our gangs here in the United States and is killing our kids, especially our minority kids.
El Chapo doesn’t give a care, nor does Sean Penn.
