Jim Carrey Jumps On The Bandwagon With Disturbing Covington Painting… Then Ted Cruz Enlightens Him

In Entertainment by 50 State Report

Like many other leftist Hollywood celebrities, actor Jim Carrey fell hook, line and sinker for the liberal media’s false portrayal of the Covington Catholic high school boys as the worst sort of privileged, white, Christian, conservative monsters.

Voluminous evidence emerged shortly after the media firestorm which exonerated the kids as not being the instigators or hateful harassers in the incident but revealed that they had first been targeted with horrific insults by a militant cult known as the Black Hebrew Israelites. Yet, many on the left ignored the additional evidence and stuck with the original narrative that painted the kids as the bad guys.

As has become his shtick now, Carrey took to canvas to display his own disturbing take on the narrative about the Covington Catholic boys with a painting inspired by the incident that he titled “Baby Snakes.”

Unsurprisingly, Carrey has received quite a bit of pushback for the painting, particularly from Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who has been the subject of Carrey’s deranged “artwork” in the past.

On Thursday, Cruz tweeted, “Just sad. Rich & powerful celebrity uses his fame to pick on teenagers. So much partisan hate, he doesn’t care that the full video showed these high school students as victims of harassment, not the other way around.”

“Jim, insult me, insult Trump, fine. But leave the kids alone,” the senator added.

Cruz has been targeted by Carrey before. In the lead up to the 2018 midterm elections, Carrey posted a painting to social media featuring both Cruz and his political challenger in the Senate race, then-Democratic Texas Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke.

The painting depicted O’Rourke pulling back a curtain and allowing sunlight to flood in through a window on Cruz, who was bursting into flames and transforming into dust like a vampire as he was hit by the bright light.

In a response to Carrey’s disturbing painting, Cruz humorously tweeted, “Hollywood liberals all in for Beto. But (self-described socialist) Jim Carrey made a mistake here: Vampires are dead, and everyone knows the dead vote Democrat….”

Carrey has also launched a number of attacks via his “art” against President Donald Trump, as well as numerous others around him and in his administration, virtually all of which are incredibly disparaging — if not at times even threatening — to the targets of his paintings.

Yet, all of those previous targets had been fully grown adults who can defend themselves against the hateful slings and arrows arrayed against them. The same cannot be said for the Covington Catholic school kids.

Cruz was absolutely right to point out that it’s fine for Carrey to attack adult politicnas, but it was crossing a line for Carrey to go after the young kids with his hatred and vitriol for all things even remotely connected to Trump — in this case, the “Make America Great Again” hats some of the boys had been wearing.

Attacking and smearing children used to be all but verboten in civil society. Today, leftists who still have not gotten over the shocking results of the 2016 election have thrown all of the old rules of civility and decorum out the window as part of their singular focus to “get Trump,” whether directly or by way of injuring and maligning those who support him.
