Rick Harrison, the undisputed king of Pawn Stars, now that his father has passed away was a speaker at CPAC and he made his feelings clear about socialism and admitted freely that he is a Trump guy. But, did you know that he never finished school because of his health?
But because of his love for books and his ability to retain that knowledge, he appears to be brilliant on the show. He is also fearless, since admitting you are a conservative is the kiss of death in Hollywood is the surest way to find yourself in the unemployment line, his success makes him fire proof.
“I truly believe that if you’re older and you’re educated and you’re touting socialism, you’re either not that intelligent or you’re evil,” Harrison said in an August 2018 interview with Mark Levin. “It comes down to that.”
During his appearance at the 2019 Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday, he had a better metaphor for it.
“The majority (of) people in this room know that socialism is just stupid,” the legendary owner of the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop told attendees.
“It’s literally like heroin. The first shot is great. For a little bit it’s wonderful, but then the rest of your life is a living hell.”
“And that’s literally what the socialists are doing,” he added.
Free stuff, of course, can be addicting. However, polities can’t end up in rehab. They can only hit rock bottom.
“Once you give someone something it’s hard to take it away,” Harrison said. “Then you get Venezuela.”
