Famous actor Jim Carrey recently did an interview where he urged Democrat candidates to embrace socialism. He went further suggesting that apologizing for wanting to take your money (socialism) is the wrong approach.

According to Town Hall:

The Media Research Center's Brent Baker picked up a gem of a clip of Hollywood's Jim Carrey on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" discussing the Democratic Party's communication problem. The multimillionaire comedian argued that Democratic candidates have to embrace the socialist label and say "yes" to the political philosophy in order to win elections and help the country.

“We have to say yes to socialism, to the word and everything. We have to stop apologizing," the co-star of Dumb and Dumber said to Maher and the audience. 

 

This argument echoes New York gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon who iterated essentially the exact same message over the summer at NetRoots, a progressive gathering that occurs each year.

"Republicans are going to call us socialists no matter what we do, so we might as well give them the real thing," Nixon said.  

Carrey has yet to donate all of his money in the name of wealth redistribution but we will report that if it ever happens.
