Jim Carrey is losing what little bit of mind he had left.
A few weeks back, in the wake of Alabama’s pro-life bill, actor Jim Carrey decided to release a “painting” of Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey. In it, she’s presented as a baby in the womb having her brains sucked out out as part of late term abortion. Disturbing would be a word for it but ironically, it actually highlighted the barbarism of abortion despite that clearly not being Carrey’s intention.
With the coming departure of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Carrey has decided to once against delve into politics with his “art.”
Good Riddance, Sarah Huckabee Sanders! Now the only one you have to lie to is Jesus. pic.twitter.com/qeWYpNxrtF

For starters, is this supposed to be good? The technique shown is reminiscent of something you’d see produced in a free art class down at a local community center. There’s essentially no talent being displayed here.
Regardless, the message of the painting is what is particularly bad. Mocking Sanders’ appearance is almost expected at this point. We’ve seen liberals do it over and over in staunch contrast to their normal rebukes of any focus on a woman’s looks. The mocking of her religion is pretty vile though. Would Carrey every treat a Muslim this way? Of course he wouldn’t because he’s a coward. Attacking a female, Christian conservative is low hanging fruit in today’s society.
There’s a bigger question to ask here though. Where is Twitter?
The new community guidelines put out by Twitter include direct harassment and religious bigotry. Yet, here’s Carrey with 56K likes on a post that clearly is both of those things. His violent painting of Gov. Ivey was also never taken down.
Now, in a perfect world, those rules wouldn’t exist and people could say what they want on Twitter. But we don’t live in that world and the rules do exist. By what justification are they pulling down even mainstream conservative thought but allow this trash from Carrey to remain and be promoted? This is why Republicans just rolling over for social media is a ridiculously stupid and self-defeating strategy. If Twitter is going to selectively enforce it’s rules based on political persuasion, they need to be made to pay a price for that. That’s part of the free market at work. Simplistically saying “but muh private companies” is a good way to ensure the total defeat of conservative thought in the public square.
Returning to Carrey, the kind of hatred being shown by him here just isn’t healthy. This is a guy who’s obviously got some deep emotional issues that need to be dealt with.
