“I almost wish Jerry Falwell were alive to see this. Almost,” Penn shouted to the crowd. After dropping some names of conservatives who are still with us – “Bill O’Reilly, who is too stupid to talk about,” and “Sean Hannity, the butt boy of Rupert Murdoch,” Penn said, “We know something more. We know their end is near.”
This sort of rhetoric often gets blasted by the left as hate-speech when it comes from the right. But don’t expect Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton to be rebuking Penn anytime soon.
