Matthew McConaughey is one of the biggest movie and television actors in America. Considering his immense fame and celebrity status, you might think he would always agree with the far-left, anti-American views of Hollywood’s elite.
But when it comes to football… You DO NOT want to mess with Matthew McConaughey’s favorite football team, The Washington Redskins. McConaughey has been a fan since he was a kid, which is why he was asked about his position on the Redskin name controversy:
“Man, it’s twofold. 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. It’s like my feeling about gun control: “I get it. You have the right to have guns. But look, let’s forget that right. Let’s forget the pleasure you get safely on your range, because it’s in the wrong hands in other places.
But now that it’s in the court of public opinion, it’s going to change. I wish it wouldn’t, but it will.”
As now-injured Quarterback Robert Griffin III posted on Instagram, McConaughey is such a die-hard fan that he showed up at training practice:
McConaughey knows that Native Americans do not find the name offensive. And the team name gives all their fans a sense of pride. The political correctness police picked this issue, even though it is clear that an overwhelming number of fans don’t want to change the name of their beloved team. And McConaughey agrees with the fans!
