Another multimillionaire lefty celebrity is pining for the death of capitalism and for some good old wealth redistribution. Avengers superstar Mark Ruffalo demanded an “economic revolution” on Twitter this past Sunday, claiming that “capitalism is killing us, and robbing from our children’s future.”
Though Mr. Ruffalo, maybe a few of you Hollywood folks could donate something from your latest $2 billion Avengers: Endgame payout to help with student debt? Hello? Guys?
Nah, it’s just more textbook hypocrisy from the Hollywood blowhards, who have bought into the socialist scheme championed by Deomcratic candidates like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.
Ruffalo, a Bernie Bro, continued his “eat the rich” ambitions on social media, retweeting a Time Magazine article about the American elite’s economic model of “hyper-capitalism” and claiming that “economic revolution is necessary.” He captioned the piece with his own ghastly opinion: “It’s time for an economic revolution. Capitalism today is failing us, killing us, and robbing from our children’s future."
That sounds so scary, we just might have to trust him.
To spare readers the details, the article was just another snipe at capitalism, based on the idea that it isn’t the only mainstream model American voters want anymore. Of course, the evidence for this is that people like Sanders, Warren and Ocasio-Cortez have large appeal. Time wrote, “a democratic socialist—Bernie Sanders—is among the top contenders to be the next Democratic nominee for U.S. President. His rival and fellow Senator, Elizabeth Warren, is also among the top tier of candidates.”
So the fact that more Americans this election cycle are weighing the options of economic suicide (with odious pie-in-the-sky policies like the “Green New Deal,” Free college and Warren’s $52 trillion “Medicare-for-all” plan) means we should just lean into it? See what happens?
Of course that’s not compelling at all. The existential lamentation should be less, “there are too many billionaires,” and more “there are too many stupid people.” After all a scary amount of young folks supposedly like socialism. Really though, imagine arguing that AOC’s popular, so we should might as well do her thing?
Though we won’t waste too much breath going into a famous Hollywood dummy’s perspective. Ruffalo absolutely loves Bernie and that should tell us all enough. He told Colbert earlier this month about the Vermont Senator’s integrity and the fact that he’s leading the 2020 pack. He claimed, “the rest of the United States has finally caught up to what this cat’s been doing already for his entire career.”
