Watch out Harry Reid and the PC police! Matthew McConaughey is calling you on your BS.
Progressive anti-First Amendment leftist Democrats have been trying for months now to bully the Washington Redskins to change their team name, declaring that after 70 years, it’s somehow suddenly racist according to them, even though many Native American Washington Redskins fans are fighting to keep the name, as well as American Indian-only attended schools that proudly use that “racist” name “Redskins.”
Actor Matthew McConaughey, in a new, extensive interview with GQ, said he was amazed at how fast changing the name “got pushed into the social consciousness.”
What interests me is how quickly it got pushed into the social consciousness. We were all fine with it since the 1930s, and all of a sudden we go, “No, gotta change it”? It seems like when the first levee breaks, everybody gets on board. I know a lot of Native Americans don’t have a problem with it, but they’re not going to say, “No, we really want the name.”
That’s not how they’re going to use their pulpit. Of course, this shouldn’t come as a huge surprise. When you have the second most powerful Democrat in the nation, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, declare on the floor of the United States Senate that the Redskins name is racist, then have the leftstream media repeat the newly discovered narrative that the team name is now considered racist, political correctness begins its poisonous march.
McConaughey told GQ that he loves the emblem, saying, “I dig it. It gives me a little fire and some oomph. But now that it’s in the court of public opinion, it’s going to change. I wish it wouldn’t, but it will.”
