Another Hollywood awards show, another shameless politicization.
With his new moonlighting in political cartooning, Jim Carrey has donned the perpetually angry, sullen mask of the celebrity leftist horde. Previously, he has used his crude marker drawings to condemn conservatives such as Lindsey Graham and Rudi Giuliani, but his most frequent target by far has been President Trump.
It’s hard to recall that there was a time when Jim Carrey was funny. These days, all that comes from Carrey is ugly artwork and hateful politics. On Sept. 25 Huffington Post’s Ed Mazza spotlighted Carrey’s freshest addition to his portfolio: a grinning man in flowing black robes wearing a ski mask over his head like a burglar.
On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, liberal host Bill Maher and actor Jim Carrey celebrated recent Democratic candidates running on far-left platforms and identifying themselves as "socialists," leading Carrey to proclaim: "We have to say yes to socialism -- to the word and everything. We have to stop apologizing."
In the latest issue of Vanity Fair magazine, perpetually bilious writer James Wolcott has attacked the “myth of Hollywood’s conservative blacklist.” He finds it highly amusing that anyone would fear damaging their acting career if they publicly favored this president. “Hollywood conservatives still act as if searchlights are prowling the studio parking lot,” Wolcott wrote. “A bigger bunch of crybabies you’ve never heard in your life.”
Sing, o muse, of those disgusting conservatives and their impossible ugliness.
Fantasizing about someone’s death is always the best way to #Resist, at least in the mind of the deranged Hollywood elite. Actor Jim Carrey took his new artistic hobby a bit too far when he drew a cartoon of President Trump’s sons being gored to death by an angry elephant. He tweeted the image on March 27, with the caption “#teamelephant.” Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump were depicted as bleeding with an elephant tusk protruding from each of their stomachs.
As President Trump delivered his State of the Union address on January 30, Hollywood expressed its outrage that Trump actually followed tradition and spoke to the people. Star Trek: The Next Generation actor Wil Wheaton posted before the address: “Tonight, Shitler is going to read a speech filled with lies and falsehoods. He will say things that sound reasonable, but won't mean any of them. Pundits will declare him to be Super Totally Presidential For Real This Time. Do not be fooled. He is a liar, a racist, and a disgrace.”
If one is a washed up celebrity with no hope for furthering an acting career, there is only one option for redemption available: Self-promotion, with a wildly healthy dose of hatred for conservatives. But that hatred can now count as a philosophy.
Hollywood is full of insane political conspiracy theories running wild. While President Trump visited Asia, Jim Carrey used the visit as a jumping point to air his ideas on Twitter. Sharing a photoshopped image of Russian president Vladimir Putin holding a miniature version of Trump, Carrey tweeted: “1968 they backed the enemy. 2016 they put their stooge in the WH. Benedict Trump and his Russian pimp in Vietnam on Veterans Day. #ohsaywhenwillyousee.”
Hollywood has priorities: hate on Trump, stay politically relevant, and look good. If the most liberal of them are freaking out about a GOP bill, something good must be happening.
So it should come as no surprise that while the GOP tries to push Obamacare Repeal, Tinseltown’s brightest come to the rescue with some interesting tweets to protest. Jim Carrey shared a picture of a hurricane swirling around Republican Congressmen, with the caption, “While another storm heads r way, craven republican sock puppets in service of shameless greed, try AGAIN 2 ravage healthcare. #sickening.”
One has to wonder: Are some celebrities promoting communism in their anti-Trump rants? According to Jim Carrey, the hurricanes and politics are linked, “Trump is a fucking imbecile,” and Americans are going to “struggle” like “people did under the czar,” which, unless Carrey doesn’t know, means that his idea of “progress” is the tyrannical communism brought to Russia by Stalin.
