Actor Jim Carrey: GOP, White House ‘sinister conclaves of souless traitors,’ must be removed

On Wednesday, actor and alleged “comedian” Jim Carrey attacked the Republican Party and the White House, calling the two institutions “sinister conclaves of souless traitors, liars and thieves” and said in no uncertain terms that both must be removed “so democracy can live.”

“The GOP and WH have become sinister conclaves of souless traitors, liars and thieves – a gangrene we must remove so democracy can live,” he said on Twitter, using the hashtag .

Carrey, by the way, didn’t specify how the GOP and the White House should be “removed.”

One person told Carrey:

Good question.  Writing at Newsbusters, Corinne Weaver called him a “a washed up celebrity with no hope for furthering an acting career” and said he only has one option for redemption: “Self-promotion, with a wildly healthy dose of hatred for conservatives. But that hatred can now count as a philosophy.”

Weaver went on to say the Washington Post — the same paper that published accusations of sexual misconduct against Judge Roy Moore after endorsing his opponent — praised Carrey as a “philosopher we didn’t know we needed.”

…In an article in the Style section, Dan Zak asks in the headline, “What is Jim Carrey Trying to Tell Us?” Even though the answer to his question can be found in the vile tweets and painfully vulgar paintings on Carrey’s feed, Zak wrote that there could be something deeper to all of Carrey’s weirdness: it’s a “Sartre-like turn he’s taken.”

But rather than dealing with existentialism, Carrey is dealing with something concrete: political insanity and liberal propaganda. Does the Post mention this at all?  No, instead Zak tries to teach readers some deep moral lesson from the ramblings of Carrey: “. . . Carrey’s message descends from the realm of celebrity into the life of the viewer. We’re all acting, to a degree …These days, we’re all Truman.”

The Post continues in its high praise. Even the lawsuit Carrey is facing for the death of his ex-girlfriend doesn’t phase Zak: the comedian “seems to be auditioning for the role of a 21st century philosopher we didn’t know we needed–one who applies the lessons of fame to a society drowning in fiction, distraction, advertisement and self-imaging.” The allegation and the lawsuit were buried down at the bottom of the article.

Carrey, Weaver said, had more to say, tweeting “his paintings of Trump kissing Putin’s behind, calling for the GOP to “throw this madman” overboard, or telling Michael Moore that “politics and hurricanes” are linked.

This, by the way, is the modern left…
