Sean Penn and Oliver Stone, among many others in Hollywood, have expressed their undying affection for Fidel Castro, whose inhumane communist Cuban regime has http://antoniettabarnettjournalmmomseg.tumblr.com enslaved a population for over 50 years. You can bet no one in Hollywood has received even a mild rebuke from their brethren for embracing Castro. Quite the opposite. And what about all the celebrities and film studio executives in Hollywood that have embraced the United Arab Emirates? Breitbart pointed out last week how Hollywood film studios have partnered with the ruling families of the emirates on various projects and how countless celebrities flock to the beaches of Dubai every year.Matt Damons movie Promise Land, for instance, was funded by government money from Abu Kardashian Dhabi.The UAE may not quite mandate the stoning of homosexuals and adulterers, but it does impose jail time and deportation for engaging in adulterous and homosexual behavior Some might say, so what? If Hollywood is inconsistent in standing up to despicable regimes, at least they are getting it right this time. If they dont stand for decency everywhere, at least they are standing for it somewhere. Perhaps.But what will this boycott actually achieve? The Sultan of Brunei is reportedly worth in excess of $20 billion dollars.
