    Beyond the insult to Peru, how completely out of it must someone be to sport a Mao handbag? Imagine wearing as fashion the favorite phrase of a mass murderer who killed millions of his own people?

    You aint gonna make it with anyone anyhow." - John Lennon

    She's already apologized. It's a non-issue.



    "I sincerely apologise to anyone I may have inadvertently offended," Diaz said in a statement. "The bag was a purchase I made as a tourist in China and I did not realize the potentially hurtful nature of the slogan printed on it."

    But yet you want us to kill more civilians in Iraq. Your outrage over deaths is selective and hypocritical.

    Not an issue? Did you not read the opening line of my post: "Beyond the insult to Peru?" Everyone knows she apologized to the Peruvians regarding the Shining Path terrorists. That was obviously not the point of my post. My question was: how can anyone not completely out of it wear as fashion the favorite saying of a mass murderer, regardless of where she is?

    Look, I know that you think you found a great nugget on the internet, showing a crazed, communist-loving hollywood actor.

    But, I'm afraid this was just a dumb mistake, by a dumb actress. She's a dumb hollywood actor who bought a bag in china that she thought looked cool, and she didn't realize the historical context of the slogan. And when she was told, she apologized.

    This is a faux paus anyone could make. Do you thing Cameran Diaz is a history buff?

    Anyone could make that mistake? One must be a "history buff" to be aware of Mao? How can anyone even marginally educated be completely unaware of Mao in China? Even if that were true, she wears as fashion the red star of Communist China? Oh, perhaps she did not know what the red star signified. If she did not know about Mao, and she did not know the meaning of the red star, then she is beyond uneducated.

    Try to look at it from a different perspective and see if it makes sense. “Hell, yes I know what the red star symbolizes. No. I’m not going to apologize. I like communism and if you don’t like it, then it is just too bad.”

    No. I don’t buy it. Diaz is a wealthy Hollywood actress who liked the way that the bad looked and did not realize the strong significance of the red star or the statement on the bag. Anyway, Diaz is not the president of the United States. I consider the whole story as significant as letting people know that I had a grilled cheese sandwich for lunch. Big freaking deal.

    Glad you could read her mind. If she did not realize the significance of the bag, after buying it in China, then she is indeed dense.

    Could you read her mind and conclude that she knew the message that she was carrying? Yes. I think that Diaz is dense.

    Even if Diaz is a devout Communist and insults people in Peru, who the hell cares? I guess that someone likes the Tabloids.
