Democrats are famous for using Hollywood celebrities to help ‘soften’ their extreme policies and convince more Americans to give up their fundamental rights.
It’s occurred throughout history, really since the idea of ‘celebrity’ took hold. Hollywood famously shilled for the Roosevelt administration to help drum up American support for World War II. There was also a slew of anti-Vietnam war movies that were surreptitiously released during the height of the unrest. Cut to today and Hollywood is still up to its usual tricks, this time, however, the stakes are a little higher.
Matthey McConaughey is a Hollywood actor-turned wannabe politician. He often makes headlines for broadcasting political messages across his social media accounts, and even considered running for governor of Texas against incumbent Gov. Greg Abbott.
The ‘Magic Mike’ actor has been increasingly vocal in the past years for his extreme anti-gun stance and disapproval of the Second Amendment.
McConaughey accepted an invitation from Biden’s White House to address matters of gun control following a school shooting in Uvalde, Texas — his hometown.
“We are in a window of opportunity right now that we have not been in before. A window in where it seems like real change — real change can happen,” McConaughey said from the press secretary’s podium.
The Hollywood actor did what he did best, manipulated his audience by introducing heightened emotion in what later became a radical speech about specific gun control measures.

And, as liberals are wont to do, McConaughey disclosed the frank and gory details associated with a violent shooting for the sole purpose of manipulating the audience. He called out the AR-15 by name (liberals’ favorite boogeyman) to remind viewers of the toll one’s body takes if he/she is shot.
McConaughey evoked the murdered Uvalde children, saying the AR-15 left their bodies “not only dead but hollow.”

He continued, demanding a moderate approach to gun laws before rattling off a series of measures he believes would help alleviate gun violence. Coincidently, they just so happen to resemble the exact gun-control measures Biden put forward in a recent address to the nation.
“We are not as divided as we’re being told we are,” he insisted, calling for some “middle ground” on the issue of gun control.

Meanwhile, Matthew McConaughey is no moderate when it comes to gun control.
He’s previously advocated for the total ban and seizure of all “assault weapons” from citizens. He by no means expressed moderate gun control measures in this speech from 2018, where he outs himself as a radical opponent of the Second Amendment.

Don’t let his cool, Texan drawl, good looks, or winning charisma fool you: Matthew McConoughey is a propaganda tool for the Democrat Party.
