Rick Harrison of the Gold & Silver Pawn shop in Las Vegas was an initial supporter of 2016 presidential candidate, Marco Rubio (R-FL).
Despite being in the Hollywood realm, in a sense, given he’s the top dog on History Channel’s “Pawn Stars,” Rick has made it clear that he’s no liberal.
He is a capitalist. He loves his country.
Check out Harrison comparing “stupid” socialism to heroin at CPAC 2019, and why…
From Fox News:
Harrison, the star of the History channel show and an outspoken conservative, delivered his speech on ‘the stupidity of socialism’ at one of the largest annual gatherings of conservatives just outside Washington, D.C.
Harrison noted, “The majority [of] people in this room know that socialism is just stupid.“
He added, “It’s literally like heroin. The first shot is great. For a little bit it’s wonderful, but then the rest of your life is a living hell. And that’s literally what the socialists are doing.“
“Once you give someone something it’s hard to take it away… then you get Venezuela.”
The Conservative Political Action Conference (Feb. 27 – March 2) began its day Thursday with Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, the top Republican on the Oversight Committee, and North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows, a day after ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s testimony before the committee. Discussing the Cohen hearing, where Democrats pressed the former Trump lawyer for dirt on the president, Jordan said: “This is step one in the Democrats’ crazy efforts to impeach the president of the United States.”
Harrison probably had Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) in mind.
Speaking of AOC, she has become known for her ramblings on Instagram Live. Given that she’s a Millennial, it’s a smart way for her to connect with fans.
During a recent feed, AOC went off on everything from President Trump and the border wall to white supremacy and the failed Amazon headquarters deal.
Check out some of her rantings…
Ocasio-Cortez made the comments during a 9 a.m. Instagram Live feed in her leisure attire as she sipped coffee in her sparsely decorated D.C. apartment, which she described as her “monastery with no furniture.” The broadcast is the latest in a string of similar online videos that have helped to cement Ocasio-Cortez’s status as the Democrat Party’s leading socialist darling by blending her candid thoughts on politics with her transition to Congress.
“I think everybody should have the insurance I have and that’s just the way it should be.“
“I think [the wall is] a moral abomination. I think it’s like the Berlin wall. 70 percent of the American people think this is the dumbest idea ever.“
“It’s not my problem the majority of the American people think it’s a scam, a sham, a monument to white supremacy. It’s not my fault.“
“For those of you who don’t know about the actual deal, you should know that New York City was getting totally screwed with this Amazon deal. We were, like, on paper giving helipads. We were, like, renaming creeks. We were providing, like, hard tangible tax breaks for very little on the paper in return. The process was designed to skip every community process.“
“I’m not going to just knock on the door of your house and say this is mine now,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
“If I just walk up to you on the street and say, ‘hey, if you give me twenty bucks, I promise I’m gonna come back – I’m gonna leave but I gonna promise I’m gonna come back and give you a really nice coat. But I need to leave, I need to take your twenty bucks first, it’s not going to happen at once.’ You’d be like, ‘you’re crazy, no, get out of my face.’“
