Danny Glover accepts $18m from Chavez

Venezuela is to give the American actor Danny Glover almost $18m (£9m) to make a film about a slave uprising in Haiti, with President Hugo Chávez hoping the historical epic will sprinkle Hollywood stardust on his effort to mobilise world public opinion against imperialism and western oppression. The Venezuelan congress said it would use the proceeds from a recent bond sale with Argentina to finance Glover's biopic of Toussaint Louverture, an iconic figure in the Caribbean who led an 18th-century revolt in Haiti.

An unabashed dictator promoting a film about liberation. Sorry, but what a crock of shit! Glover should be ashamed of himself. It just goes to show how blinding ideology can be, and the Hollywood left is certainly no exception.
