"It truly feels as though you and I have crossed an ocean of outrage together… but something tells me it’s time to rest my social media gavel and reclaim a little neurological bandwidth."

"If it seemed like I was ignoring my main Twitter followers here and outside the US and Canada in my quest to rid our democracy of 'Orange Julius Caesar' and his Empire of Lies, it was not my intention. I just assumed that a radicalized America is a threat to us all. When a madman grabs the wheel of the bus loaded with innocent passengers and threatens to drive it off a cliff, it tends to steal everyone’s focus."  

Jim Carrey lets us know he's giving it a rest. He needs to get his brain back. He's not the only one. But don't get complacent. Who's driving the bus now... and is it really loaded with innocent passengers? Just because you could focus all your fear of evil on one person doesn't mean that when he's gone you've got nothing to fear. I recommend maintaining your equilibrium at all times.

My link goes to a NY Post article about his tweet, but the actual tweet came in a form that made some people think he was about to kill himself:

I can’t remember the last time I saw a Jim Carrey movie, but that will have been the last time I ever see a Jim Carrey movie.

Temujin said...

I guess I don't live in the world where people read Tweets from Jim Carrey. I didn't know it was a thing. He could keep it up and it still wouldn't register on my radar.

It would be akin to me Tweeting that I'm done posting comments on Althouse. People would go, 'Huh? Who dat? What's Althouse? Who cares?'

rehajm said...

I just assumed that a radicalized America is a threat to us all

It is but now that the radicals have taken power you're stepping down?

It's not funny but kinda funny they think Jim wants to kill himself now that his reason to live- tweeting mean things about Trump- is gone.

Jeff Brokaw said...

It's amusing the way actors, actresses and others in the arts think their considerable creativity is somehow an asset when evaluating policy and politicians in general.

It is more of a hindrance. Creativity is a wonderful thing -- everything in the arts depends on it -- but a fertile imagination and injecting drama into life are *not* useful skills outside of the arts, and do not imply credibility or expertise.

rehajm said...

Trump gave so many losers purpose to their lives...

D.D. Driver said...

This is like when you find out someone really old passed away but you assumed they had passed away many years prior. Whats the German word for that?

TreeJoe said...

Trump was a shitty communicator and leader in many ways as President, but his policies and actions were well reasoned and considerate broadly speaking.

By comparison, Biden and his staff mastered the art of banal communication and their policies and actions are poorly reasoned and generally dangerous.

And the odd part is: Most people find more comfort in the latter.

hombre said...

“Orange Julius Caesar?” Really?

These Hollywood folks’ sense of history is as deranged as their sense of current reality. What was the problem, Jim? Was it prosperity or the possibility of peace in the Middle East? Maybe it was getting back on even footing with the ChiComs.

In terms of a demented “madman” at the wheel, old Jim ain’t seen nothin’ yet. QuidProJoe has the steerage now.

here's a Heinlein quote, that has Nothing to do with any of this:

when I die; i want to die Peacefully, in my sleep, the way my grandfather did...
not Screaming in terror, the way his passengers did

I don't want him to kill himself, I just want him to go away.

farmgirl said...

Doesn’t think too much of himself, does he... /sarc

Speaking of evil- we all know it’s not just the prick w/the pitchfork, but “all the the other evil spirits that prowl throughout the world, seeking the ruin of souls.” Ck out “call her daddy”- it’s come to my attention that our youngest daughter, 18 this month- watches every week. I watch reruns of Touched by an Angel on startv. Jim Carrey would approve of her, but not me. C’est la vie

Sebastian said...

"'Orange Julius Caesar'"

Progs may not want to pursue that analogy too far.

"I just assumed that a radicalized America is a threat to us all."

True. As we are seeing today.

"threatens to drive it off a cliff"

Talking about Biden now?

Jeff Vader said...

Does one become a narcissistic asshole after becoming famous or because of?

Eleanor said...

The last time I saw Jim Carrey in anything I was sitting with a friend's little boy so she could get some sleep while he was getting chemo at the Jimmy Fund Clinic. They were playing "Ace Ventura, Pet Detective" on the TV for the kids. About 25 years ago. He's still "a thing"?

Ron Winkleheimer said...

I read an essay this morning on being an effective dissident in the US we know find ourselves in. One suggested strategy is to ask questions. Like, what exactly did Trump do that causes you to believe he was a radical? What is radical about wanting to bring manufacturing jobs back from China where they are being performed by slave or near-slave labor with no regard to environmental or safety issues? I seem to recall that being a talking point on the left a couple of decades ago. What changes led the Democrat party to abandon the middle and working classes? Does it concern you when US politicians, both federal and local, have financial dealings with Chinese companies that might cause them to favor China's interests rather than their constituents'? Do you care that the Chinese government is committing genocide against two different ethnic groups with one of the methods reported being gang rapes by prison-camp guards. Does it concern you that the Chinese have prison camps? Don't you think that US politicians, people of influence, and major corporations should oppose such practices, not abet them as they are now? What are your feelings about the fact that influential media outlets such as the New York Times and the Washington Post are owned by billionaires whose interests might not align with the middle and working classes? Why do you think the left stopped asking such questions? Are you in favor of repressing the speech of the 75+ million Americans who voted for Trump? If so, what methods do you propose should be used? Should they lose their jobs? Fined? Harassed? Do you believe that 75+ million Americans are white supremacist racists?

Just a couple of questions for Jim.

narciso said...

I liked him last in the majestic a fortys period piece.

mikee said...

Jim married a centerfold and has the political acumen of a college freshman. But he still married a centerfold. How about we see what someone thinks, who doesn't use the term "Orange Julius Caesar" to describe a US President? Say, a small business owner in downtown Minneapolis? Or maybe a former small business owner from Minneapolis, which would be easier to find?

NorthOfTheOneOhOne said...

We have too many celebrities these days.

Or at least too many that don't have the good sense to retire once their shelf life is over.

Ron Winkleheimer said...

Anyway, Jim Carrey prospered under the status quo and thus has no desire to see it change. But admitting that to himself would make him feel bad because he thinks he is a good, moral person. So, Orange Man Bad!

Gusty Winds said...

The letter left by Carrey’s girlfriend, Cathriona White, prior to her suicide… “you gave me hsv and hpv, I want you to apologise for it because you care enough to. I want you to understand that however little a thing that seems to you, it ruins a girl’s life.”

He won the wrongful death lawsuit…I’m sure it was a stretch…but these Hollywood assholes are assholes. But I believe her that he knowingly gave her herpes. Seems to specific to discount. And that’s California for ya.

Ace Ventura was a better person than Jim Carrey.

Temujin said...

Imagine being outraged at Trump for four years, then feeling the calm of being in safe hands with Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and the Blue Meanies in the Democrat Congress. Dems in Congress

Owen said...

Comments today are stellar. Thanks all: you’ve put my thoughts into better and more interesting words than I could have done. I’ll just add that, as a Canuck myself, Jim Carrey is deeply embarrassing.

ROGER KIMBALL: WHY WE NEED AN INQUIRY INTO JANUARY 6TH. “Five people died at or near the Capitol that day. None was murdered by the protesters. Ashli Babbitt, a pro-Trump activist, was shot in the neck at close range, apparently by a law enforcement officer, and died of the wound. That was the only shot fired at the Capitol that day. The liberal commentator Glenn Greenwald further diminishes the ‘armed insurrection’ meme in an important column titled ‘The False and Exaggerated Claims Still Being Spread About the Capitol Riot’. . . . Brian Sicknick was the poster boy for the Democrats’ effort to transform Trump supporters into ravening extremists bent on destroying democracy. That’s why they had him lying in state at the Capitol and made his supposed murder such an important part of their impeachment effort. Once again, the New York Times, where the story originated, has been shown to be an organ not of the news but of partisan misinformation. They heard something that fit their narrative, so they ran with it without checking.”

Musing of an unknown celebrity, not anyone you know.
I've helped elect a senescent, corrupt old man as leader of the free world. Other nations are commenting - laughing really, as if the White House were a Seinfeld show - about nothing. And there are problems caused by other Dems. For example, the teachers are refusing to educate the children of the black community in the big Dem cities. I'm going to say and do nothing to help. Because my agent tells me that, unexpectedly, the Chinese are going to use Hollywood less and less. How to manage that? I'll call it a period of reflection. Meaning I'll be working to get contracts with Chinese Hollywood. I'm OK. They'd never dump me. I helped. I'm safe. I'm no Uighur, no Deplorable, no Milwaukee first grader that's never seen my school. I'm ... resting, as we say in the business.

Kate said...

I applaud anyone who realizes that social media has been a poison for them and they should step away. If he needs to blame Trump in order to get control, ok. Part of his schtick was to exaggerate the asshole side of his personality. Maybe he can strike a funny balance again.

Todd said...

“Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.

This is known as "bad luck.”

― Robert Heinlein

Jim carey is famous not because he's smart or accomplished great things, or won the respect of the communality for his leadership or charity, he's famous because he can make funny faces for a camera. And *SOME* people laugh.

That he's become rich doing it, while hard working doctors and medical researchers, etc. don't shows how flawed our society is.

rcocean said...

"I hear Jim Carrey(D) is ravaged by various sexually transmitted diseases"

Could be. More likely he's just half-nuts like Robin williams or Johnathan Winters.

Of the three, the only truly funny one was winters. Although, I thought williams was a good comic/serious actor if you gave him the right part.

Ron Winkleheimer said...

Do you think that Mark Zuckerberg spent hundreds of millions of dollars to influence the election out of the goodness of his heart or were his motives more mercenary? Why was it OK to question the legitimacy of the 2016 election with congregational investigations and allegations of Russian interference and hacking but now it is sedition to ask questions concerning this election? How is it physically possible for "experts" to declare the 2020 election the "safest and most secure" election ever within two weeks of ending when it took three years to investigate the allegations concerning the 2016 election? What steps do you think the US government needs to take regarding the fact that at least nearly half of the people in the country think it is illegitimate?

I see that another conservative website has a video up saying the same thing. Did the Word come from up high, that its now OK TO TALK ABOUT. I thought it weird that the Conservative were all obeying radio silence on Jan 6th and Ashli Babbitt and wondered why. could be Google/Zuckerberg/Dorsey/Gates based the word that if they talked about it, they'd be banned. OR it could be someone else that's powerful behind the scenes.

"It's amusing the way actors, actresses and others in the arts think their considerable creativity is somehow an asset when evaluating policy and politicians in general."

Similarly, it's amusing (scary, actually) when politicians make pronouncements about things like science or energy policy. There are, perhaps, two or three senators who understand science, the scientific method, and energy. None of them is heard from; the wind from windbags drowns out any any useful discussion. So we are led down a destructive path by ignorant people puffed up, by virtue of election, into thinking they know something. Great danger lies ahead as we follow adults who think the slogans of teenagers exemplify wisdom and should define our national destiny.

A couple years back, The New York Times did its usual logic pretzel thing to keep the "Trump is a dictator" meme alive despite all evidence to the contrary by coining a new term: the weak strongman. Because sounding like a bunch of incoherent jackasses is better than admitting that maybe they were all wrong about Trump being a fascist dictator.

Robert Cook said...

Trump was certainly a crude, dissembling boor and ignoramus, but he was not a madman, and he was not even the worst president we have had in recent times.

This childishness is why our nation is in a terminal state--each side thinks their guy (or gal, theoretically) is the bees knees, perfectly swell, the best thing since sliced baloney, etc.--or at least NOT a ravening madman and incipient dictator--which the other side's guy (or gal, theoretically), always most certainly is.

Both parties work for the financial/corporate complex, and both parties use the military and the intelligence agencies as brutal tools to assert US power domestically and abroad, (by which they also protect/shore up US corporate profits). Even so "sophisticated" and "empathetic" and "cool" person as Obama dutifully did his duty to prop up these cancerous institutions of death. Obama even deported more illegal immigrants than Trump did, and he did not do anything to help Edward Snowden or Julian Assange. Obama was a murderer and war criminal, just as his predecessors were. Talk about your iron fist in a velvet glove!

In short, they're all enemies of humanity.

Having said that about Jim Carrey, I must acknowledge that he is a supremely gifted physical comedian, and he has done things on screen that have amazed and amused me no end.

Really? Who? How did they express their criticisms? How were those criticisms received (by Trump or by other Trump partisans)?

"Few people on the left think highly of Joe as Joe. He was a vehicle for winning, and now he's a tool for implementing prog policy. That's enough."

(Are you referring to "the Left" or to "Democrats?" They are not the same, and they overlap over marginally.)

Ha. Anyone expecting Biden to implement "prog" policy is simply an idiot.

In reality, few in either party actually criticize their guy (or gal, theoretically), and demand he or she do better. Most take any criticism lodged against their guy/gal as heresy, to be rejected passionately, with name-calling and vituperation (the lingua franca for most commenters on this blog, for example).

The harshest critics of any politician should be that politician's constituents; it is their obligation to keep their representative in line, to snap the whip and make sure he/she does what they want done in their behalf. Instead, most assume their guy/gal has it all under control, and they pay little attention to what he/she is actually doing, but they faithfully supply their inattentive, uncritical acceptance and approval.

“Tough day at the USSC for MAGA. Two big losses in a row: Donald likely to be indicted now on financial fraud, and final Pennsylvania electoral challenges blown off unanimously.

I thought the PA stuff was 4-3 with Gorsuch joining Thomas, and Alito in dissent.
Either way. The more our courts show us they are corrupt cowards and will not even listen to election fraud evidence and cases, the easier the fraud will be to commit in the future. We are further fucked now, than we were before.

I think Althouse would have voted with the majority not to even hear the case. She seems to want any election fraud evidence to be hidden.

I would put them on a par with 7th graders who want to be with the "In Crowd". The more extreme and idiotic they sound (e.g., Rob Reiner and Jim Carrey) reflects a certain amount of stupidity and ignorance, but it more deeply reflects their need to be liked by the other kids. Thy are basically dumb bullies.

Gusty Winds said...

75 Million people coming to the realization that there is no remedy for voter fraud that affects the outcome of an national election is not a good thing. The percentage of Trump haters that are glad the fraud "succeeded" is even worse.

Everyone knows its real...Even Althouse and the Supremes. Too many cowards in seats of power to ever do anything about it. Too many citizens rooting for the fraud’s success, or are scared to confront its reality for the sake of some fake peace.

What’s the point of voting anymore?

If the past four years have taught us anything it's that generally the Right can't hold a candle to the Left in the "whose side has more crazies" game.

That's not to say that wack jobs are some kind of a rare commodity these days. Over the past few years social media seems to have severely derranged a large segment of people. But who can say? Maybe they were always a little bit unstable (like ol' Jim Carrey here), but regularly interacting with social media gave them just a bit of a push they need to go into full-on-crazypants-town. Arguing with strangers over different perceptions of reality can be both addicting and destructive psychologically. Getting that little dopemine reward for "winning" an argument on Twitter is ephemeral and not without negative costs that are difficult to percieve in the moment.

William said...

The only celeb whose work I take conscientious steps to avoid is Jane Fonda. I listen a lot less to Bruce Springsteen. That may be because his politics are starting to bleed over into my opinion of his music, or maybe I'm just getting older. If Jim Carrey ever made another great comedy I would probably go to see it, but, like Meathead, he's probably a spent force. The most politically outspoken people in Hollywood tend to be those whose careers are on the wane. I presume everybody in Hollywood despises me, but they're generally somewhat circumspect about it.....Also, I refuse to buy any more records by Al Jolson. That's how upset I am about his appearing in blackface.

That doesn't preclude being critical when you disagree with him. I liked his policies, but he is human and makes mistakes just like everyone else. I bet you saw lots of criticism of him in these threads when bump stocks where banned.

Bilwick said...

Inga the State's Handmaid accuses a critic of "being fine with 500,000 Covid deaths." Those of us who have been regular visitors to this blog are used to Inga writing stupid stuff; but I don't know anyone who is "fine" with any Covid deaths, although it is true that those of us who value liberty resist the idea of turning the US into some kind of Orwellian dystopia in the name of defeating Covid. Remember that idiots like Inga were State fellators pre-Covid and if the Kung Flu were to disappear tomorrow, would simply be using some other excuse to advance
statism and diminish liberty. Show me that I'm wrong about that, Handmaid.

Meanwhile, Inga seems to be fine with all the deaths from Democide (several billions just in the last 100 years alone).

Ron Winkleheimer said...

But you’re fine with 500,000 Covid deaths..

What could Trump have done differently to lessen the number of covid deaths? Why is the overall death rate for the US not risen from the number of covid deaths? What is your opinion concerning Fauci's pension for flip-flopping on what is considered "the science" depending on the political requirements of the situation?

WTF? Republicans continually criticized Trump. Mitch did it just the other day. On this very blog a number of righties criticized Trump, from way back in 2016, including yours truly. At no point did I think Trump was "swell."

"(Are you referring to "the Left" or to "Democrats?" They are not the same, and they overlap over marginally.)"

WTF? Of course the Dems are left. Sure, there are some people who think they are lefter than left and dislike the Dems being the actual left. Very strictly speaking, I only consider lefties left if they have read Marx seriously, but I prefer to keep it real.

"Ha. Anyone expecting Biden to implement "prog" policy is simply an idiot."

WTF? Which of his EOs wasn't prog policy? Prog as in, actually existing progressivism.

"Most take any criticism lodged against their guy/gal as heresy"

WTF? What even counts as "heresy" in the Trump era?

"to be rejected passionately, with name-calling and vituperation (the lingua franca for most commenters on this blog, for example)."

WTF? Most commenters are well behaved and express themselves politely. This is just a smear.

Apologies for the WTFs.

But you’re fine with 500,000 Covid deaths..

500,000 and collateral damage. Planned Parent/hood was one of the few venues where there were excess deaths attributable to the Wuhan variant. Also, medical site cross-contamination; controlled, peer-reviewed studies established that anything less than N95 masks and following a strict protocol statistically increases infections; fecal spread of viable viruses; and JournoListic braying and professional denial and stigmatization of effective, inexpensive, low-risk early treatments (e.g. HCQ cocktail, Ivermectin protocol); and improper hygienic habits normalized viral spread and disease progression. Trump was right. I wonder who advised him about the technical points. I wonder who overrode him, her, or them, to favor sociopolitical special and peculiar priorities.

stevew said...

Anyone that supports the failed regime of lockdowns, stay-at-home orders, and mandatory masks is the one that is "okay with 500,000 deaths". And then they don't even count the other deaths: Maine reports the highest number of deaths from overdoes in 2020 since forever.

Joe Smith said...

Nonapod said...

I wonder if it will ever be known how many deaths due to so called diseases of despair have occurred over the past year or so. How many overdoses and suicides over and above the norm have there truly been over the course of the pandemic? I don't imagine that number will ever be widely or accurately reported since such deaths occur mostly to undesireables (primarily poor whites without college educations) in terms of the modern progressive MSM zeitgeist. But if an estimated 158,000 died in 2018 and there was indeed a 60% increase over the course of the pandemeic, that may imply something in the neighborhood of 250k deaths. Obviously that's only half as many as Covid, but still depressingly awful.

And unlike Covid I expect that rate will be unlikely to abate over the coming months. In fact given our current political climate it seems likely to only get worse. There seems to be a fervent desire to punish Trump supporters. Newly confirmed attorney general Merrik Garland seems very eager to target so called "abettors" of the capital riot, meaning people who weren't even present.

Nation Prepares To Celebrate 1st Anniversary Of Two Weeks To Flatten The Curve

U.S.—The nation is preparing to celebrate what is expected to become a beloved annual holiday: Two Weeks To Slow The Spread Day, to be held in March every year.

Traditional festivities for the newly christened American holiday include remote Amazon gift exchanges, ordering DoorDash feasts for just yourself, and the customary binging of the Netflix. Historians believe the holiday will become a hit, and people will continue to wear masks and stay home throughout the year as the festive day is celebrated for hundreds of years to come.

I've tried to call RC on this a number of times, but he's never really addressed it. The Dems ARE the left; they're just less honest about being on the left than RC is. Which is a positive about RC, and a negative about the Dems. The Dem party holds 99% of the same views as Cook, but they know they'll get trounced if they announce how they feel.

I'd like to know just a couple differences between the Dems and lefties according to RC.

"Stupid comment, based on what?" The Democide death toll is based on the work of R. J. Rummel, probably the leading scholar of Democide (murder by government). If you want to contest his figures, have at it, but you'd probably come prepared with studies of your own. As for your being okay with Democide, what else can one deduce from your years of cheerleading on behalf of statism, which is the cause of Democide? If you're not okay with the State's death toll, stop cheering on the State.
