Jim Carrey: Don't Call Me a Gun Hypocrite Just Because I Walk Around with Armed Security
Comic Jim Carrey takes to the august pixels of the Sideboob Gazette to hit back, again, at those of us who don't care much for people who make their livings pretending to be other people lecturing us about reality.
For those who say I'm a hypocrite because I have an armed bodyguard, lets make one thing clear: No one in my employ is allowed to carry a large magazine and NO ONE IS ASKING ANYONE TO GIVE UP THEIR RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS, though it is in the vested interests of those who profit by gun sales to make it seem so.
Alrighty then. So if you happen to get into a shootout with Jim Carrey's bodyguards, you can just wait them out.
Next up, Carrey compares himself to Ronaldus Magnus.
And to the bullies who will try to marginalize and discredit me by saying, "Shut up, you're just an actor," while they brag about what a great president the ACTOR Ronald Reagan was, who threaten me with the demise of my acting career and much worse, I say SO BE IT!
Reagan was also a union leader and successful governor who spent decades formulating ideas and plans to dismantle the Soviet Union. Carrey has spent decades turning his face into rubber.
Don't read these two lines and then call Jim Carrey a hypocrite, though.
These horrific events are also an invitation for us to become more civilized and to deal with our addiction and entitlement to violence.
Later in the same piece...
These thugs, though menacing, are a minority but they will have their way if good people don't step forward now and make a difference.
It's as if Carrey knows words, and knows how to put them together into a sentence, but does not know what the words actually mean.
