Did anyone read my post on 01/02/2016 about Celebrities Who Must Comment on Events? Well, their leftwing poster child, Sean “El Moron” Penn has just gone a step beyond that and has laid down with the most dangerous dog on the planet, in his own doghouse, heard his barks and possibly led the dog catchers to his lair. Now guess who’s going to get fleas.
Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman was not only the world’s most wanted criminal since his spectacular, high-profile escape from Mexico’s most secure prison, he’s the undisputed leader of the Sinaloa Drug Cartel. The guy is a king-pin that runs an organization that has probably killed more people than malaria. Most of us will not even go to Mexico on vacation, much less to meet and hang out their most notorious drug lord. But El Moron couldn’t resist that opportunity.
Now let’s be brutally honest. The Mexican government is not known for being the most upright and uncorrupt organization in the west, but they have seemed to have sincerely been trying to catch El Chapo, with the United States breathing down their necks I’m sure, for six months now. El Chapo is very rich, and has a resourceful and powerful criminal organization behind him who are absolutely ruthless, and creative, in meeting their goals. Then along comes a simple Hollywood actor who is indirectly contacted via intermediaries, and invited to come down to the jungle last October for a chat, which morphed into a Rolling Stone Magazine interview. Supposedly, the meeting was to be part of a research project to develop a Netflix-style drama about El Chapo and his prison break as well. It seems like the narcissistic El Chapo wanted to be a movie star and follow in the footsteps of Pablo “El Padrino” Escobar, who if you recall was gunned down by law enforcement officials in Columbia in 1993. Quite dead.
At some point in this, did anyone in the El Moron community or the Rolling Stone set, ever think of contacting law enforcement and let them know what was brewing. Maybe they did and we just don’t know yet. But most likely they did not, and a lot of cronies will be tap dancing on land mines in the near future as a result. Remember, we are talking about ruthless people here. El Moron has eloquently stated he didn’t want to turn El Chapo in as he “didn’t want to f**k with his trust.” Well, El Chapo, always maintaining he was just a farmer, admitted to El Moron “I supply more heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana than anybody else in the world. I have a fleet of submarines, airplanes, trucks and boats.”
Well, guess who just became the El Prosecution’s star El Witness when El Chapo is extradited to El America to face trial.
I can understand why Hollywood is so desperate to find new material to do movies and TV shows on because they have pretty much addressed every script that can be done intelligently. And I realize the entertainment industry is a cut-throat business, including lowly magazine articles. But to begin dealings with
Sean, you should have suppressed the ego, avoided the moment and just stayed home.
I would suggest a low-profile existence in a mountain fortress somewhere is advisable at this point.
