Former comedian, Jim Carrey appeared on Bill Maher’s show and during his visit espoused socialism and said that the Democratic party needs to embrace socialism as their own. Do you know the difference between an optimist and a pessimist?
An optimist is someone who thinks living under socialism is paradise. A pessimist is an optimist that moved to a socialist country. Venezuelan columnist Laureano Márquez, in a piece published in the outlet Runrunes, points out that socialism is the reason that Venezuela is going to hell in a handbasket.
Journalist Goes Nuclear on Jim Carrey — Furious He Said Socialism Was Good
Just one mere week after actor-turned-activist Jim Carrey suggested people should say “say yes to socialism,” a Venezuelan journalist is pushing back hard on that suggestion.
“We have to say yes to socialism — to the word and everything,” Carrey, who is among the richest celebrities in all of Hollywood, declared last week on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” show.
“We have to stop apologizing,” he also said.
He made that comment after host Bill Maher expressed outrage that Republicans are attacking Democrats who veer toward the extreme and express a love for socialism — a model of government that has destroyed other countries.
Venezuelan columnist Laureano Márquez, in a piece published in the outlet Runrunes, declared that socialism is the root cause of that country’s current economic crisis…
“I read that … you said: ‘We have to say yes to socialism, to the word [‘socialism’] and to everything.’ Perhaps for you, as for all humanity, the word ‘socialism’ sounds beautiful,” he went on.
The Venezuelan writer then explained that while many people define socialism as “the antithesis of selfishness, synonym of concern for others … support for the weakest and their needs, of seeking health and education for all,” in reality socialism today has “deep threats,” said the writer.
In Venezuela, we have grown to hate the word socialism, it represents oppression against the people, the destruction of a flourishing nation, and the desperation of its citizens,” Márquez concludes.
Carrey, who has not starred in a successful movie in many years is probably trying to make himself look more desirable to movie studios and directors, but obviously, it’s not working. He is very low on the relevancy scale.
