Skip to comments.Sean Penn: ‘Donald Trump Is the Enemy of Compassion’
Posted on 01/13/2018 9:33:58 AM PST by EdnaMode
Within days of the devastating earthquake that struck Haiti on Jan. 12, 2010, 29 American volunteers and I became quickly embedded with the 82nd Airborne Division of the U.S. Army. Alongside our military mentors, our hands and souls touched the bodies of the dying and the dead. Our doctors tended the injured. Our educators moved swiftly to establish schools and normalcy for the youth, many of whom had been abruptly orphaned in the disaster that killed as many as 300,000 Haitians.
President Barack Obama deployed about 22,000 U.S. service men and women to Haiti, on one of the most extraordinary missions of support in humanitarian history. No other country in the world offered the generosity of support to the Haitian people that ours did with our church groups and other NGOs, the money and supplies sent by average citizens. Perhaps most moving for those 30 of us was the extraordinary humanity, respect and commitment offered Haiti by our soldiers.
On this pale blue dot Earth that we call home, the Haitian people are our neighbors, to whom our support is both the policy of a great America as it is a sacred duty.
While nothing could bring back those hundreds of thousands of lives and little could console their families, from day one there was not a broken street I could look upon from the ground without thinking, This can be fixed. Or rather, I can fix this. But soon, I came to realize: Only the Haitians themselves could fix this. Our true sacred duty was to understand the support they may need in their effort.

Sean Penn is a dolt. He is the enemy of intelligence.
Compassion isn’t mentioned in the Constitution.
Davey Crockett knew it:
Isn’t SP in charge of the collapse of Venezuela?
Damn, Sean Penn didn’t even want to share his pizza with the rest of the class under Mr. Hand shamed him. What a self-centered person.
Sean Penn doesn’t have the slightest idea that he is painting himself into a corner with this ABSOLUTEST thinking. He thinks he is describing simple Truth and that at some point we MUST fall into line. Buy...ah...no...
Dont believe these Lying Leftist Media outlets, like Time, that proved themselves during the 2016 campaign to be operatives of the DNC and intentional liars. They are presumed to be lying and we should presume what they publish is a lie. The presumption can only be rebutted with the outlet providing clear and convincing evidence they are not lying.
Why dont we follow Trumps lead here on FR? Lets limit posting headlines from these wretched Lying Leftist outlets. If this story is true and has some redeeming value, at least get the story from a reasonably reliable source, not from a known Lying Leftist operative posing as a news organization.
We should be mostly publishing the truth on FR, not the lies, and as much good news as possible to bolster morale. We should find and post reasonably reliable sources that have already deconstructed the lie and replaced it with the truth and with a headline that says the truth. We need much more of that on FR IMO. The key is the headline and the first few sentences because not everyone has time to drill down. The endless stream of negative, lying headlines sabotages our purpose IMO.
Exactly. It’s not like his late buddy Hugo and compassion went hand in hand, eh?
Big words from a third-rate actor has-been.
Donald Trump is the enemy of socialist and commies!
The apple didn’t fall far from the tree, Daddy was a big-time Commie.
Donald Trump is the enemy of weakness disguised as compassion which has ruined this nation and especially destroyed the African-American family. Compassion is handing a man a tool and giving him a chance to use it for pay. Compassion is letting a mother raise her own children while her husband earns a good living. And, yes, that sounds sexist because allowing men and women to be different is compassion. The genderless, pansexual ideal of Progressive-Marxist societal theory is cruelty.
I loved Sean in the Falcon and the Snowman. Especially the part where the Mexican police stomped his ass.
I’d like to add Hollywood to the list of moral shitholes.
A communist lover speaks of compassion?
Didn’t he tie up Madonna and beat the crap out of her? Is that the compassion he likes?
He does make an interesting observation, that others have noted. Haitians, once removed from a Haitian-majority culture, do very well.
