Matthew McConaughey Speaks Out Yet Again On “Illiberals,’ ‘Extreme’ Right And Cancel Culture Causing Divided US

Published

Actor Matthew McConaughey continues to be a breath of fresh air in the wide world of Hollywood as he once again speaks out on the current political divide in our country and on cancel culture and the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

McConaughey found himself making headlines last week when he made an appearance on Russell Brand’s podcast to have a chit-chat about the hypocrisy of asking conservative folks to get behind Joe Biden as president after the left railed against President Trump for his entire first term.

Trending: CNN Guest: We Must Censor More Conservative Outlets From Reaching ‘Huge Audiences’

Appearing virtually on Tuesday’s episode of “Good Morning Britain,” the star elaborated on his comments, noting that neither liberals nor conservatives are to blame for the country’s deep political divide, but rather extremists on both sides of the aisle.

“You need liberals. What I don’t think we need is the illiberals. And what I don’t think that some liberals see is that they’re often being cannibalized by the illiberals,” McConaughey explained to hosts Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan. “Now there are extremes on both sides that I think are unfair, that I don’t think are the right place to be. The extreme left and the extreme right completely illegitimize the other side, the liberal and conservative side, which we need in certain places. The two extremes illgeitimze those two sides. Or they exaggerate that side’s stance into an irrational state that makes no sense and that’s not fair when either side does that.”

“Where the waterline is going to land on this freedom of speech and what we allow and what we don’t and where this cancel culture goes, where that waterline lands is a very interesting place that we are engaged in right now as a society that we’re trying to figure out because we haven’t found the right spot,” he explained.

While McConaughey is all about unity, he also went on to stress that confrontation is still an important part of a fully functional society.

“You’ve got to have confrontation to have unity. That’s when a democracy works really well,” The Dallas Buyers Club actor said. “I would argue we don’t have true confrontation right now, confrontation that gives some validation and legitimizes the opposing point of view. We don’t give a legitimacy or validation to an opposing point of view, we make it persona non grata, and that’s unconstitutional.”

“Limbo is the hardest part,” McConaughey stated.“I think we all do better when we have a definitive yes or no or an understanding of when the ending is going to be of something, of some crisis. We haven’t had that for some time. So, it’s been sort of a one-way ticket to limbo.”

In a world where Hollywood and the entertainment industry are 100 percent in the tank for far-left political beliefs, it’s super refreshing to see someone at least attempt to take a balanced approach to the topics of the day.

McConaughey is right about calling for folks to get behind Biden. It seems hypocritical to do so after spending four years saying Trump “wasn’t their president.”

Then again, when the left calls for unity, what they really mean is submission.

Save conservative media!

What a horrible thing to say!

We’re just over two weeks into the new year and we already have a quote that may hold up as the most ridiculous of 2021. Remember, this guy was elected to office. What does that say about the people who voted for him? It’s because of people like Goofy McGoofball in the clip below that America has become such a liberal cesspool. During a Monday appearance on CNN, McGoofball said, “You know I was thinking, the Guard is 90 some-odd percent male. Only about 20 percent of white males voted for Biden. You’ve got to figure that in the Guard, which is predominantly more conservative…there are probably not more than 25 percent of the people that are there protecting us that voted for Biden. The other 75 percent are in the class that would be in the large class of folks who might want to do something. There were military people and police who took oaths to defend the Constitution, who didn’t do it and were in the insurrection. So it does concern me.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1351196676036435972?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1351196676036435972%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fvideo-democrat-argues-national-guard-members-who-voted-for-trump-may-be-a-threat-to-bidens-safety%2F From The Daily Wire: Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA) added to the already deep divide in our nation during a online meeting with constituents in San Francisco on Saturday, claiming the Trump supporters who breached the Capitol on Wednesday chose their “whiteness over democracy.” Pelosi said, “When that assault was taking place on the Capitol, 3,865 people in our country died of the coronavirus, many of them people of color because of the injustice of it all. The next day, on Thursday, 4,000 people died of the coronavirus. Why? Because decisions were made at the highest level, months before in the Oval Office, of denial, distortion, delay, calling it a ‘hoax.’” She added, “I thought it was going to be an epiphany for…

WATCH: Melania Trump Delivers Powerful & Moving Farewell Message As First Lady

Gorgeous, as always!

She wasn’t unbearable like Hillary Clinton. She wasn’t as polarizing as Michelle Obama. But because she is married to Donald Trump, Melania Trump is the worst first lady in American history. That’s how the mainstream media will remember the woman who speaks five languages fluently; the former model whose mere presence is a sight for sore eyes. FLOTUS’s farewell message is one that should be replayed for decades to come. From New York Post: First lady Melania Trump on Monday released a nearly seven-minute farewell message urging Americans to choose “love over hatred” and “peace over violence.” The video filmed at the White House was posted to Twitter fewer than 48 hours before President Trump leaves office Wednesday at noon. “As Donald and I conclude our time in the White House, I think of all the people I have taken home in my heart and their incredible stories of love, patriotism and devotion,” she said.
