During an interview with Russell Brand, actor Matthew McConaughey shared some of his thoughts relating to the political climate in America.
McConaughey held nothing back as he shared his distaste for the elite class in America as well as the “far left.”
“We live in a time, I feel, in my country and yours, where there’s this sort of — I have sensed a lot of condemnation and criticism of what I might describe as normal working people. A kind of offhandedness, ‘Oh, they’re dumb, they’re voting for Brexit, they’re voting for Trump,’” Brand said.
“I don’t like it, and I don’t like to hear it because of my own experiences and my own upbringing … I spend enough time with people who have been described in this manner to feel ill at ease with it. How do you feel about that kind of judgment?”
McConaughey jumped in, saying, “There are a lot on that illiberal left that absolutely condescend, patronize and are arrogant towards the other 50%,” he said, adding that those in Hollywood “were in denial” about President Donald Trump winning in 2016.
The Daily Caller adds:
I really wish the world had a few more people like McConaughey in it with monster platforms. While I’m sure we don’t agree on everything, is there anyone more authentic in Hollywood?
I think the answer to that has to honestly be no. I’ve read “Greenlights,” and the biggest takeaway from the book is that McConaughey is exactly who you think he is.
That’s a level of authenticity that’s more or less gone in 2020.
More and more people seem to be getting sick of the Democratic party. During an interview on Tuesday evening with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard ripped her own party for trying to turn America into a “police state.”
“The very first thing that any President does after they’ve gotten elected, any member of Congress and every one of us who has served in the military is we take an oath, and we swear to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. The reason that this is the first thing that we do is because our Constitution is the foundation of this country and who we are. It is what guarantees us our civil liberties, our freedoms that are endowed to us, not by any man or person in government, but are endowed to us by our Creator, and so this is something that we must all unite around.”
“This is something that we recognize that those who stormed the Capitol on January 6 trying to stop Congress from fulfilling their constitutional responsibilities, they were acting as domestic terrorists undermining our Constitution. As you pointed out in my video, those like John Brennan, Adam Schiff, and others are also acting as domestic terrorists because they are also undermining our Constitution by trying to take away our civil liberties and rights that are guaranteed to us.”
“If you don’t mind, I’d like to just quote John Brennan directly so that people can’t say I’m taking this out of context, directly, John Brennan says: ‘Members of the Biden team who have been nominated or appointed are now moving in laser-like fashion to try to uncover as much as they can about what looks very similar to insurgency movements they’ve seen overseas where they germinate in different parts of the country and gain strength and bring together an unholy alliance, frequently of religious extremists, authoritarians, fascist bigots, racist, nativist, and even libertarians,’” she added. “This is the extent that they are going to try to undermine the rights and freedoms that are guaranteed to every one of us, and it is incredibly dangerous.”
