Sean Penn And Conan O’Brien Blast ‘Soviet’ Cancel Culture

Superstar actor and notorious liberal Sean Penn and Late Night comedian Conan O-Brien have now both decided they have had enough with the radical left.

As The Daily Wire reports:

It seems even Hollywood’s most notorious left-wing activists are waking up to the dangers of cancel culture.

In the July 5 episode of the podcast, “Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend,” the recently retired host of “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” asked veteran actor Sean Penn about the trend of destroying careers for past political incorrectness.

“Empathy is a very important word and also forgiveness,” said O’Brien. “We found that someone did something in 1979 that is now not appropriate. They’re dead to us.” O’Brien went on to describe cancel culture as “very Soviet,” saying, “People can also be forgiven. If they even need forgiving. What happened to that?”

Penn agreed with O’Brien, calling the practice “ludicrous.”

If liberals like Penn and O’Brien are already fed up with ultra-woke discourse, how does the rest of America feel?

They helped create this mess…they have nothing to complain about. Both probably have some skeletons in their closets, they may be next. KARMA

If all this ‘cancel culture’ and ‘woke’ whatever BS is affecting the left wingers, there may actually be a chance of discovering reality among them. It’s probably ridiculous to think that they may yet develop any commonn sense.

The entertainment industry needs to understand that over 1/2 of America is fed up with the “woke” mentality and the citizenry is their paycheck. Its better to be honest with America than to “play along with others”. Being honest is tougher for many who live in a “Fantasy World” than to be one of the rats following the Pied Piper.

Wow, that speaks volumes to me!!! Sean Penn and Conan tired of the far left??? The biden/harris COMMUNIST REGIME, need’s to be careful, but, they won’t!!! THE TRUTH ALWAYS COMES OUT!!! Many truths already came out!!! You just can’t keep lying & expect people to believe in you, looks like people ALREADY NO LONGER TRUST THE GOV’T (from the top, to the very bottom, biden to bush, c).
OH WHAT A WICKED WEB YOU’VE LAID!!!

The left eats their own….once it is set in motion it is hard to stop…you should of known this earlier. Comedians will all lose their jobs eventually as in this brave new woke world there is no laughter…..in order to have laughter you have to be politically incorrect and the woke cannot tolerate that !

Don’t believe a word out of the mouths of these 2 liberals if it sounds like it has an inkling of support for patriotic conservative values. When they shift their financial support and vote conservatively, I will believe them

Glad some of them are waking up to it enough to see it for what it is… AND, especially speaking out against it.

But calling Sean Penn a superstar actor…. hmmmm

Reality check on the Red-Pilled Left. Sanctimonious virtue signaling is biting back like a snake. The backlash from Middle America has been fierce in response to Hollywood’s contempt.. Doors are slamming on movie theaters. Revulsion factors are so high. A few people in Hollywood recognize that demands for social conformity has put its own vices front and center.

Yeah….Today they thinks its “Ludicrous”, but tomorrow it will be understandable because its the New Liberal ideology that will keep them employed!!??

Sean Penn is only worried about something he might have said or done that could get him in trouble with the Woke Mob!!!
Even though I appreciate his sentiment, he’s still a “Total Hypocrite” !!

Calling either of these slugs a hypocrite is going easy on them. I can think of a lot of words that would be more fitting.

Once you get to a level of stupidity like ole Sean there, who is exactly supposed to believe you when you admit you were wrong?
Remember when ole Sean was famous, except his attitude?
I remember, and I don’t believe the guy for a second.

Take it with a grain of salt. Wait for real proof that they mean what they say about the radical left.

Time for all Christians, liberal and conservative, along with the other free religions that share the rights that are given to all American, to speak out and show up en masse. The Humanists are marching to kill this country and the culture and freedoms we hold dear. Amazing how we have gladly let a Pagan, (Humanism), religion silence all other religions.

Two fools whose own actions are now bearing ugly fruit..and they don’t like it.Its one thing to make believe your a commie in a free land..and a whole different thing when communism is actually gaining a quick foothold here and we will no longer be a free nation.Note to Sean Penn and all you other little commie wanna be’s…once the light of freedom goes out in America..there will be no place to run to.This is it…America..the last foothold of true freedom in the world..but everybody here whines and cries that they’re oppressed and enslaved and want reparations…they have no clue what it’s like to live in a real communist country.When you turn your back on God..He gives you what you want.. a world without Him…and thats Godless communism.

Your articulate reply rings true in my ears. I agree with everything you have said. Our only solution is for God to do a miracle of revival in our land. I know that he loves his church more than the filth that we are mired in. God bless you brother!

If Sean Penn wants to be rehabilitated, he must first admit his egregious error in backing the Venezuelan communist dictatorship. He no doubt caused a lot of misery in Venezuela and perhaps even some deaths.
