(TheIndependentStar.com) – Hollywood actor and hard-left activist Sean Penn has directed his anger and frustration towards members of his own political affiliation, criticizing leftists who advocate for a peace agreement with Russia to end the conflict in Ukraine.
In a recent Deadline’s Doc Talk podcast interview, Penn, who shares a close relationship with Ukraine President Volodymr Zelensky, voiced his concerns.
Penn specifically targeted fellow leftists who call for negotiations with Russia, arguing that such efforts could jeopardize Ukraine’s hard-fought freedom.
He emphatically asked Americans to consider how they would react if a foreign entity had seized control of New York, where their loved ones resided, and now someone proposed negotiating away that city for the sake of peace. Penn’s strong words hinted at his reaction to a letter penned by far-left members of Congress last year, which urged the White House to seek a diplomatic resolution to the Ukraine conflict.
However, it’s worth noting that the Congressional Progressive Caucus, led by the notably left-leaning Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), ultimately withdrew the letter and aligned with the pro-war Democratic establishment. In his interview, Penn firmly rejected being labeled a war hawk in Ukraine and took aim at liberals for what he viewed as a misplaced sense of compassion, labeling them as an “idiot show of politically correct morons.”
In recent weeks, Sean Penn has actively promoted his documentary, “Superpower,” which supports President Zelensky. The documentary is available for streaming on Paramount+. Penn’s support for Ukraine even extends to gifting one of his best-actor Oscar statuettes to President Zelensky. He has recently expressed his belief that the United States is not providing Ukraine with arms quickly enough and has called on Americans to accept a “level of shame” regarding their response to the conflict.
As of now, U.S. taxpayers have contributed more than $75 billion to Ukraine, with President Joe Biden requesting additional funding for the cause.
