Actor Jim Carrey breaks his promise to stop publishing political cartoons

Actor Jim Carrey, who previously announced he would no longer publish political cartoons, broke his promise (yet again) by publishing a cartoon featuring wolves tearing apart the Statue of Liberty while US Attorney General Merrick Garland seems to run away in fear.

“Here, Merrick Garland, democracy dies…while you cross your t’s and cross your i’s,” Carrey captioned the image.

The cartoon appears to echo the sentiments of other far-left influencers, such as actor John Cusack, who say Garland is taking too long to accuse former President Donald Trump of a crime.

Last year the Liar Liar The star has announced he will no longer publish political cartoons – echoing a vow he made which he quickly broke in early 2020.

“Hey people…over the past 4 years, among other commitments, I’ve put tremendous effort into this collection of political protest cartoons,” Carrey said at the time. “It really feels like you and I have walked through an ocean of outrage together…but something tells me it’s time to put my social media hammer down and get some neurological bandwidth back.”

The Stupid and even dumber The star went on to say that he didn’t want to ignore his “core Twitter followers” over the years by having what seemed like an incessant urge to post politically charged artwork on his account.

“If it seemed like I was ignoring my major Twitter followers here and outside of the United States and Canada in my quest to rid our democracy of ‘Orange Julius Caesar’ and his Empire of Lies, that wouldn’t was not my intention,” Carrey wrote.

During the Trump administration, the actor perpetually published crude and gory political cartoons attacking the 45th president, his supporters and other Republicans.

In one image, Carrey portrays Judge Brett Kavanaugh as a rapist:

Another image shows a cartoon version of Alabama Governor Kay Ivey as a fetus being sucked into a tube.

Carrey also posted a cartoon depicting President Abraham Lincoln sticking the barrel of a gun into his mouth – appearing to be preparing to kill himself – at the start of the 2020 Republican Nation Convention.

The Mask star also posted a grotesque painting of a tearful man breathing from a fan and wearing a red hat with the words “MAKE AMERICA DIE FOR HIM” on it.

Carrey captioned the image “180,000” deaths and counting. The tweet was posted in late August, about six months after the Chinese coronavirus began to plague the United States.

The actor, however, did not blame President Joe Biden in the same way for the coronavirus-related death toll during his administration, which in 10 months surpassed the death toll recorded under Trump in 12 months – despite the availability of vaccines under Biden.

Instead, Carrey’s political cartoons dealing with the coronavirus issue all seem to have ceased in 2020.
