After comedian Jim Carrey goes ‘all in for socialism,’ a Venezuelan journalist schools him

(National SentinelReality Check: In a recent appearance on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” actor/comedian and, most recently, POTUS Trump-hating activist Jim Carrey, professed his love for socialism and claimed that Americans should embrace it fully as well.

After stating that we have to “say yes to socialism, to the word and everything,” Venezuelan columnist Laureano Márquez published a scathing column on Wednesday for the Venezuelan media outlet Runrunes, schooling Carrey over his economic worldview.

“Dear Jim, I admire you a lot, but sometimes it seems that the inability of Hollywood stars to understand politics is directly proportional to their talent,” wrote Marquez, as translated by Fox News.

“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,” Márquez wrote.

Noting that many Americans and celebrities on the Left view 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.” But in reality, socialism as an economic system has “deep threats.”




“[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.”

Which is always the case with economic systems that must be imposed on people rather than adopted and accepted by them.

“At God’s mercy” under socialism, and with little to no access to the most basic human needs, Márquez wrote that Venezuelans are trying to escape it “however way they can.”

“[This is] a tragedy that is compounded by the denial of a regime that claims that the population has never been better.”

Venezuelans by the tens of thousands have been fleeing their country in such high numbers that some neighboring nations are now closing their borders, while indigenous citizens rebel against the wave of humanity caused by President Nicolas Maduro’s ‘very equitable, fair, and wonderful’ socialism.

The situation in the country is so bad Venezuela has gone from one of the world’s top producers and exporters of oil to beggar of Chinese largess.

As for Carrey, he’s free to give as much of his millions away as he wants “to the people.” Which of course beats having it taken from him by the government by force and then redistributed at the pleasure and direction of a dictator.

  1. Socialism is heaven, as Venezuela proves.

    1. Their money is no good.
    2. They are expected to praise the administration forever.
    3. It leads to nothing better.

  2. You first, Jim…

  3. All socialist governments have failed. The rulers live in luxury, while the rest of the people share whatever crumbs are left for them. Does that seem fair to you, Jim? Some social programs are helpful—like Social Securi, but they are burdensome and become unaffordable without capitalism’s economic policies to pay for them.

  4. One word to rubber face Jimmy “Boy” Carey – “BOOM”!!! You just got yer azz handed to ya!

  5. Carey is an idiot…high school graduate? maybe…any college….ZERO…actor, in general, are clueless, under-educated, self-centered, ego-centric, narcissistic morons who think they have something relevant and important to say. What they should be doing is to STFU and act. PERIOD!

  6. If there is a hell, that vile Satanic pervert and enemy of all living Carrey will certainly go there. And no you God damned pieces of shit, you can’t argue he has some kind of mental illness and therefore in thus state he is not responsible for his beliefs.

Have something to say?
