‘Aggressively Centric’ McConaughey May as Well Be a ‘Leftist’ on the Right to Arms

This is actor Matthew McConaughey’s idea of being “aggressively centric” on the right of the people to keep and bear arms. (David Thomas Photography – Austin/Facebook)

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “Matthew McConaughey may be a viable candidate for Texas governor,” The Dallas Morning News reported Monday. “Poll shows actor ahead of [two-term Republican incumbent Governor Greg] Abbott.”

“For months, McConaughey has teased political pundits and TV talk show hosts with musings that he might enter politics in his home state,” the article explains. “If he were to take the plunge and run for governor, the poll found, 45% of Texas registered voters would vote for McConaughey, 33% would vote for Abbott and 22% would vote for someone else.”

That makes fair the question: Why is he a “viable candidate” who is pulling such promising early numbers?

What has the actor said or done to convince a substantial percentage of Texas voters that he is qualified to exercise political power over their lives? What public policy positions has he championed to inspire that level of voter confidence and support?

Evidently, he presents himself as “aggressively centric,” whatever that means. And he’s a famous Hollywood star that People Magazine once named its “Sexiest Man Alive.” And, say some hoping to make a Trump comparison, he’s a political outsider.

They can say that again. Per a March report by The Texas  Tribune, “The actor hasn’t voted in a primary since at least 2012 and has never donated to a Texas or federal campaign.”

So what does McConaughey stand for? Aside from himself? Does “centrist” mean like a Mitt Romney “centrist Republican” or a Mark Kelly “centrist Democrat”? And how do his “centrist” positions – if we can ever find out what they are – square with the Constitution and the Bill of Rights?

When it comes to the Second Amendment, the actor has already let the cat out of the bag. He’s a gun-grabber wannabe.

Citing his October 2020 interview with Joe Rogan, The Tribune article elaborates:

“…McConaughey offered a more direct position on another hot-button issue — gun control — saying it is ‘too easy to get a gun sometimes, that there should be that background check.’ McConaughey has a history of being more outspoken on gun violence than other politically charged issues. In 2018, he spoke at the March for Our Lives rally in Austin, calling for banning assault weapons for civilians, restricting high-capacity magazines and strengthening background checks.”

Supposedly adult Americans exercising their right of self-determination vote for celebrities based on all they know about them—which is generally “informed” by scripted, directed, optimally angled, and lighted images projected on a screen, and on the gushing praise of publicists. That they would cede great powers based on professionally-manipulated illusions speaks more to starry-eyed childishness than anything else.

We saw it years ago, when the California GOP backed “action star” Arnold Schwarzenegger for governor, and warnings of his anti-gun inclinations were relegated to echo chambers and all but drowned out or ignored, including by “pro-gun” groups.

We see it in the mounting enthusiasm for a celebrity like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson running for president.  He’s another self-described “centrist” who endorsed the Biden/Harris ticket and its gun-grabbing agenda.

Unfortunately, or more accurately, outrageously, the same mob mentality for style over substance is what elects not just celebrities, but career politicians as well. In a perverse way, “progressives” who smear gun owners as “extremists” for insisting representatives adhere to the Constitution have a point.

But to do otherwise is inexcusably lazy citizenship malpractice. And that threatens everything.

Looks more an more like Texas is going to flip from a Republican run state to Demoncrat run state. Houston, Dallas and Austin appear to be turning quite liberal (at least from a distance.) I feel for those folk who live in the rural areas, their voices are diminishing fast.I am afraid that will have consequences far past the boundaries of the state.

I am happy to have a conversation with anyone willing to consider the veracity of ideas other than their own as will I. And we shall see what happens with the conservative vs. liberal influence.

Self absorbed, self important actors are good for one thing and one thing only,acting. They spend their mostly miserable lives pretending to be someone else. Matthew wants to pretend to be Governor of the greatest state in our union, Texas.

Right up their with uncle Joe Obiden. Why do you think he wants the border open. So he and hunter have better access and cheaper drugs just like the demontrats have always had. If he controlled Texas he would control a border and then hoard in on the illegal drug trade with the cartels and give them avenues for safe passage and free money and drugs by using his power.

Guns are his distraction to his real goal. Control of the drugs coming in, the money and more drugs for free for him. How about those cookies.

Did you like how the attorney showed how he complied and talked about how he did everything he was told to do and even thanked the officer. After seeing that I thought, this was a bad cop. Then I got to see the rest of the story that wasn’t shown. Changed my mind. I think his death was an accident but so many people tell the story according to their belief and feelings rather than just the facts mam. It’s hard to believe anyone.

I find it truly amazing that NOT ONE OF YOU limps, in ANY column here, mentioned that TODAY was April 19, Patriot’s Day. On April 19, 1775, “the shot heard ’round the world” was fired in Concord, MA. The government agents, the Redcoats, came to Concord to seize the citizen’s arms and ammunition. The Patriots SHOT them. Admit it, most everyone on this blog will crawl over their neighbors to be the first to turn in your arms when government agents come for them. In 1971, On April 19, I walked that Minuteman Trail from Lexington to Concord. The fact… Read more »

We respect our History but we have current issues that are more pressing like covid and Joe’s gun grabbing administration. You turn yours in since you think it’s the right course of action . My neighbors and I will still have ours as we will do what is necessary to defend our rights . You think you have everyone figured out in America ? Good luck with that cookie cutter tetejaun.

I thought it was the 18th of April 1775. Memory is a little shy, though I do believe it was a precursor for the “Red Flag” laws being pushed today.

Focus on the task at hand. Refer to history when it clearly guides in the current context but focus on the mission and tasks at hand. Focus. Specificity. Accountability. That is how we defend liberty. Folks will try to distract you from your mission focus with the irrelevant and the trite. Focus. Focus to the point where you don’t hear the incoming. Semper Fi

Actually, sir. The first shot was fired in Lexington! The Redcoats went on to Concord where the6 failed to seize the arms and ammunition! I retrospect. It is a little known fact that all the way from Boston these fine examples of British Soldiers looted and pillage homes all along the way!

tetejaun was wrong, but he was bombastically wrong (again).

Let’s not forget who those redcoats were – paid government employees who were following orders.

This is all part of your non programming. Have you noticed on your phone that it has mothers day marked, fathers day, first day of black history month, valentines day, presidents day, cinco di mayo, first day of Hispanic history month and even May, 17th the new tax day this year. Notice that Patriots Day is not marked on your calendar? There is a reason why.

When you forget history, you make the same mistakes that were made before. My phone is proof that they want to erase our history. Verizon, Android.

hippy – you brought up a VERY important point regarding how the gummint officials (mis)behaved in their retreat. I wonder how many innocents were murdered during that retreat and how much personal property was destroyed or looted by them as well. We do know that at least one ‘objected’ VERY strongly to their actions – Samuel Whittemore – and look how they treated him.
IMHO far too many people ‘conveniently’ forget those little excesses perpetrated in the name of ‘security’.

More correctly, it is 4/20! Roll a fatty while you tidy up your bunker.
