One week after Jim Carrey suggested we "say yes to socialism," a
Venezuelan journalist is speaking out against the actor's suggestion.
We have to say yes to socialism to the word and everything, Carrey,
whos among the richest in Hollywood, said last week on HBOs Real Time
with Bill Maher show. We have to stop apologizing.
In an article published in the Venezuelan outlet Runrunes, columnist
Laureano Márquez argued that socialism is the root cause of the country's
current state of crisis.
"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," Marquez began his column.
"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," he continued.
The journalist then went on to explain that while many define 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,"
in reality Marquez believes socialism today has "deep threats."
"[In] Venezuela, what we find is just that our regime is not for Gods
sake the antithesis of selfishness," he wrote Wednesday. "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."
Marquez explained that people in Venezuela are "at God's mercy" and are
fleeing the country "however way they can" as they do not have access to
medication, food or other basic needs.
"[This is] a tragedy that is compounded by the denial of a regime that
claims that the population has never been better."
A rep for Carrey did not return Fox News' request for comment.
The United Nations says that more than 1.6 million Venezuelans have left
their country since the start of 2015, generating an international migrant
crisis that has set off alarms in South America and recently led to
violent confrontations between migrants and local populations.
Venezuela's socialist government denies there is a migrant crisis, with
Vice President Delcy Rodriguez recently declaring that images of desperate
migrants walking across Colombia were staged by Venezuela's enemies to
justify an intervention.
Donald J. Trump, 304 electoral votes to 227, defeated compulsive liar in
denial Hillary Rodham Clinton on December 19th, 2016. The clown car
parade of the democrat party ran out of gas and got run over by a Trump
Congratulations President Trump. Thank you for cleaning up the disaster
of the Obama presidency.
Under Barack Obama's leadership, the United States of America became the
The World According To Garp.
ObamaCare is a total 100% failure and no lie that can be put forth by its
supporters can dispute that.
Obama jobs, the result of ObamaCare. 12-15 working hours a week at minimum
wage, no benefits and the primary revenue stream for ObamaCare. It can't
be funded with money people don't have, yet liberals lie about how great
Obama increased total debt from $10 trillion to $20 trillion in the eight
years he was in office, and sold out heterosexuals for Hollywood queer
liberal democrat donors.
