Harrison went on to point to the example of Venezuela as a country that socialism ruined.
NATIONAL HARBOR – "Pawn Stars” host Rick Harrison injected some humor into his CPAC speech on Thursday afternoon.
Harrison, the star of the History channel show and an outspoken conservative, delivered his speech on ‘the stupidity of socialism’ at one of the largest annual gatherings of conservatives just outside Washington, D.C.
“The majority [of] people in this room know that socialism is just stupid,” he said.
“It’s literally like heroin. The first shot is great. For a little bit it’s wonderful, but then the rest of your life is a living hell. And that’s literally what the socialists are doing.”
