Idiot of the Week: Benicio del Toro

Via EU Referendum, I too shall be putting this book—Exposing The Real Che Guevara And The Useful Idiots Who Idolise Him—on my reading list.

Not least because the place in which we are performing This Lime Tree Bower during the Fringe is a kind of fucking hippy hang-out and I will need a weighty and relevent tome to bash the shit out of all the fucking student wankers and bloody tree-hugging, sandal-wearing twats that will no doubt be milling about wearing Che t-shirts like the guy is some kind of god rather than the small-dicked sadistic psychopath, with a penchant for killing young boys, that he actually was.

Richard also links to the first half of a long interview that the author gave to CNS News. In the interview, Humberto Fontova: talks about a couple of new Che Guevara films that are due out, one of which features our Idiot of the Week.
We have a clue as to what these movies will be like in that Benicio Del Toro made a comment a few months ago because he's studying up on his character. He said,
"Che was just one of those guys who walked the walk and talked the talk. There's just something cool about people like that. The more I get to know Che, the more I respect him."
Benicio del Toro: political fuckwit and apologist for murderers.
Well, here's some news for you, Benicio: if walking the walk and talking the talk means that Che Guevara was a mass murderer, then you are right. But if that is why you respect him, will we see you saying the same thing about Hitler or Stalin? Because, by your measure, they too "walked the walk and talked the talk".

Benicio del Toro, ladies and gentlemen, supporter of mass murderers and useful idiot to a despotic, Stalinist regime responsible for the execution and imprisonment of ten of thousands of innocent people.

Benicio is brilliant advert for why actors should only open their mouths to speak the lines written for them, rather than giving us all the benefit of their utterly valueless opinions. Shut the fuck up, you mass-murder-condoning fucktard.

May I lobby for an exemption for Charlton Heston, on purely selfish grounds?

The late Alfred Hitchcock said that actors should be treated like cattle. I fully agree here is one that needs a bolt to the head in double quick time.

Benicio del Toro is a moron, but he was good in License To Kill.

del Toro's drivel on Guevara aside, I have often thought the Forest Cafe could do with a few grenades being tossed in to tidy the place up a little.

The only question is, before, during or after the festival?

Bear in mind, I have to suffer the insufferable bastards when you return to the relative safety of Englandshire.
