Valerie Richardson reports at the WTimes:
Comedian Jim Carrey says Democrats need to stop running from Republican attacks and "say yes to socialism."
"We have to say yes to socialism -- to the word and everything," Mr. Carrey said Friday on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher." "We have to stop apologizing."
His comment came after Mr. Maher complained that Republicans have targeted progressive Democrats who identify themselves as socialist by throwing up the Venezuela example.
"Brent Bozell, president of the conservative Media Research Center, called on Mr. Carrey to set an example by giving away his own wealth," Richardson reports.
"Why do people who made $20 million a movie talk up socialism?," Bozell tweeted. "Hey Jim Carrey! If income inequality is the scourge of our time, maybe you should just hand away all your own millions first!"
