Jim Carrey, a political scientist, economist, and Constitutional scholar who studied under Dr. Thomas Sowell at…wait, no. That can’t be right.
Jim Carrey, an actor, comedian, and noted basher of President Donald Trump, has some things to say about socialism that just might make a few people keel over laughing.
During an interview on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, Carrey noted, “We have to say yes to socialism, to the word and everything. We have to stop apologizing.”

You really want our government to be in charge of equalizing economic prosperity? With the horrible job they are doing now? And we are going to hand over more money so they can "manage" it?

When you’re worth $150 million, you can afford socialism.

From Right Scoop:
Now this idiot is worth MILLIONS. Did he make it from socialist countries or from hard-working Americans? Could he have done that in Venezuala? What a complete idiot. If he’s all about it, why doesn’t he fork over 95 percent of his income to the government? Because he’s full of it, that’s why.

You go first Jim. Give away all of your money and invite a bunch of winos to live in your house(s). Let me know how it works out. #SocialismSucks

Great! Jim, can I have $100,000?
— Brian Gaffey (@gaffeybrian1) September 8, 2018
Weird. He had to leave a socialist country in order to make a living at his trade.

Sad, he’s completely unhinged now with Trump Derangement Syndrome…favorite actor, least favorite policy advocate.

Well, Jim has enough money that socialism seems like a great idea because he truly believes everyone will suddenly live like him and it wont actually effect his life at all.
Must be nice.

This is the same Carrey who recently painted an effigy of Trump burning at the stake, while accusing the commander-in-chief of “inciting civil unrest.”
The Canadian Carrey made millions in his life thanks to capitalism and moving to America. And yet, even with examples of the harsh realities of socialism in countries like Venezuela, he still thinks it’s the best option.
Is Carrey prepared to hand over more of his money to the government?
