Don't you think Carrey took it a little bit far by mocking the dead and rednecks (god forbid).
But hey he got a reaction which is what he was looking for . . .

Jim Carrey for Supertopo, a perfect fit . . .

Yeah, Jim Carrey is like totally my hero.

And yeah, 5 years is too soon to make fun of a public figure who had controversial views... but when a young man dies in a tragic accident, feel free to criticize their assumed desire for instant gratification and lack of knowledge the same day the news comes out.

What?

Jim Carey?

His films have been huge hits, he has to be worth 50 million.

Like he gives a damn what anyone who disagrees with him thinks!

Like Americans are all of a sudden just not going to see his movies anymore?

yeah right, probably the opposite because by far most Americans don't want assault weapons to be in the hands of certain people, neither does Carey and neither do I or anyone else I Know

what the fuk is wrong with that?

Norton, if you thought carey yammering about Hestons career being over, yeah,, since he is dead i suppose so. However what level of respect does that show- either for person or his business and fellow actors? Never mind the obvious cut to a good part of America. I suppose we really need more of that hog wash right..?

The no-feudalists all drooling over themselves defending a moron who makes a living pretending to be an even bigger moron, when he's not busy supporting causes that really do kill children.

About sums it up TGT..


Bagging on dead folks of the industry and others that have given him millions certainly doesnt smack of blatant hypocrisy.. Send him off with rodman, penn and fonda to the "island".


Kinda funny he didnt reference CONGRESS too eh? They are the ones that back away from assualt weapons bans but uhhh never mind that.Just a noisy so cal hollwweirdo weasel. pfffff.

At least Carrey's stuff is funny. Maybe we need more hog wash like "first he speaks for gun control, then he tries to buy ARs and such.. Now he brings his assualt beast to the public beach to run willy nilly."

Because not only is it far from funny, it directly conflicts with the available information.

My impression is that if Carrey had done a video in lock step approval of the NRA stance of the 2nd amendment some on this site would herald him as the greatest comic actor of all time.

Heston also supported the gun control act of 1968.

And supported Goldwater, who opposed the civil rights act.

Never met the guy, but Carrey's skit was the funniest thing I've seen him do since Dumb and Dumber.

The Carey video which Hedge was having orgasms over is stupid and pointless. He ridicules rural Americans, but if he wanted to actually shine a light on gun violence he should have used rap music and gang bangers. Oh wait, then there would have been non-whites looking bad in the clip, and we can't have that can we? Then he ridicules Heston, a man who put his celebrity on the line for the cause of civil rights at a time when this did not come without risk.

And regarding Barry Goldwater and civil rights, as usual the truth is more complex than the sound bite version.

"... He got himself into political hot water, however, with his opposition to legislation that would eventually turn into the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Goldwater was a passionate Constitutionalist, who had supported the NAACP and had backed previous versions of civil rights legislation, but he opposed the 1964 bill because he believed it violated states’ rights to self-govern. His opposition earned him political support from conservative southern Democrats, but he was detested as a “racist” by many blacks and minorities."

Sucks to stand by your principles, doesn't it.

Yeah, I'm sure those "rural Americans" are really butt-hurt over an obscure Jim Carey video.

Why is it that political conservatives have such a hard time enjoying some clever satire?

BTW, there's plenty of stuff out there that mocks urban/black gun violence:

And then there's Chapelle's show...

I wonder if careys security guard has turned in his gun???

I guess, since his career has been a real "nowhere man- sittin in his nowhere land" - abusing a century old dick joke about guns and gun owners was the best he could do. I pity the fool.


edit: And Dave, YES rural America is paying attention and getting pro-active. That is the EXACT reason the assualt weapons ban failed consideration. The silent other majority has been awakened.

Kris,

It's not personal, but IMO your posts have a tendency to present "facts" in a way that suggests some credibility, when there is little to back them up.

I don't agree with Ron's posts either, but I don't think there's any chance that anybody would actually believe his claims.

It does amaze me how the conservative angle often seems to be based on selective outrage.

Suddenly it's wrong to criticize prominent political figures after they are dead ?

I hope nobody says anything negative about Hitler. That would be unfair.
