Venezuelan Columnist Responds to Jim Carrey's Socialist Remarks
Last week, Jim Carrey bent over, grasped his butt cheeks, and declared socialism to be the bee's knees. Naturally, anyone who isn't a Lenin-loving commie fangirl called shenanigans on his duncetastic remarks.
Like this Venezuelan columnist from Venezuela, who called Jimmy out on his bullhickey:
After Carrey’s appearance last week on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” during which the actor insisted that Democrats should “say yes to socialism, to the word and everything,” Venezuelan columnist Laureano Márquez wrote a scathing column criticizing Carrey’s worldview.
“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.”
“[In] Venezuela, what we find is just that our regime is not – for God’s sake – the antithesis of selfishness,” he continued. “In Venezuela, dear Jim, from what I have just told you, there is no equitable distribution of wealth; wealth is concentrated, as rarely before in our history, in very few hands.”
“At God’s mercy” under socialism with little access to the most basic human needs, Venezuelans seek to escape “however way they can.”
Well, it would appear Jimbo just got his ass handed to him.
Everyone loves socialism. Except of course for the people who actually live in it. There's a reason why people from those countries want so badly to get into the U-S-of-A.
Elitist douchenozzles like Jim Carrey cling to their millions, while they demand an end to capitalism. Wealth is all well-and-good when it's theirs. For the rest of us, it should be toilet paper shortages. A crashing economy. Grilled zebra for dinner.
Jim can take his socialism and stick it where the sun don't shine:
