Actor/”comedian” Jim Carrey recently used his appearance at “Vulture Fest,” a celebration of our debased pop culture, to launch into a crazed diatribe against the Trump administration and right-leaning Christians. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie and television star said of Republicans: "These are not people you can deal with. You cannot be bipartisan with a criminal. A rapist needs to be removed, not negotiated with. These people are raping our system, they're destroying it right in front of us. This corrupt Republican Congress that was.... These people have to be removed from our system because they're bad for us. Trump is a melanoma, and anybody that covers for him, including [press secretary] Sarah Sanders, is putting makeup on it. It shows that there's a deeper problem in this country, and that problem is greed.”
Greed? Carrey’s net worth is currently estimated to be about $150 million, making him one of the richest actors/comedians in the world. He now spends much of his voluminous spare time painting leftist-themed artwork and sharing it on his Twitter feed. Calling Republicans “rapists” and “criminals” who cannot be dealt with or engaged while saying they have to simply be “removed from our system because they’re bad for us” boldly illustrates the fact that intolerant, statist leftists like Carrey know they cannot win by logical persuasion and must resort to Gestapo-like tactics to suppress free speech and render free and legitimate elections null and void, thereby negating the will of the people, and exterminating the very democracy they often purport to champion.
The “Liar Liar” lead then pivoted to verbally assaulting Christians, stating: “I think they're going to find out once and for all that the Christian right has never been about morality, it's been about holding on to power and using morality to do so." If “the Christian right” was replaced in that sentence by “the progressive left,” “secular Democrats,” “leftists,” “statists,” “the LGBTQIA community,” “Hollywood elites,” “the national education association (NEA),” or the “mainstream media,” it would ring true.
Jim Carrey continues to show us that he is Dumb…and (getting) Dumber. When he issues vile, preposterous statements, he’s not Kidding. Ergo, to the extent we believe him, the joke is on us.
