Hollywood Playboy Matthew McConaughey Bashes Anti-Maskers As He Prepares To Run For Gov of Texas

Matthew McConaughey criticized people who don’t wear face masks on “The Carlos Watson Show, referring to mask-wearing as a “short-term inconvenience for a long-term freedom.”

The New York Post reported that “Matthew McConaughey thinks anti-maskers are not alright, not alright, not alright.” McConaughey said, “I’m like going come on, man – I’m not believing that you’re really scared of this little cotton thing,” the Oscar-winning actor and potential Texas gubernatorial candidate said in a recent appearance on “The Carlos Watson Show.”

“We’ve got to make some sacrifices for larger rewards tomorrow,” McConaughey said, explaining that he is not convinced that Americans truly feel that their freedoms have been limited through “politicized” government mask mandates. “And I’m not believing that you really feel that takes away your identity and your freedom. This is a short-term inconvenience for long-term freedom,” said McConaughey.

“There’s no data that says it’s not a good thing, no data that says it’s harmful,” McConaughey said. “Let’s all take one for the team here. And we all like to say we want to take one for the team, we like to say oh, the value of a human life is the epitome … no it’s not. We won’t admit it.”

The actor is currently considering a run for Texas Governor in 2022, and polls show him leading over the current Governor Greg Abbott. “The Dallas Morning News and University of Texas at Tyler found 45 percent of Texans would pick the actor, while 33 percent would vote for Abbott. But 56 percent of Republicans would vote for Abbott, while 30 percent would vote for McConaughey, the poll found,” the New York Post reported.

“I’m not interested in going and putting a bunch of band-aids on that are going to be ripped off as soon as I’m out,” the actor explained to Watson. “I’m interested in building something that can last and I’m measuring what category that is, and I don’t know if that’s politics.”

Despite Texas House Republicans repeatedly calling the 2021 session the “most conservative in history,” Republicans have worked with Democrats to kill legislative efforts at banning child chemical castration, as National File reported. “Among the bills that Republicans killed were legislative efforts to end taxpayer-funded lobbying, ban social media companies from silencing conservatives, prevent biological boys from playing in girls’ sports, and outlaw sex change surgeries and controversial hormone therapist for children – all of which have strong support amongst Texas Republican voters.”

Not that I had planned to vote for him anyway, by running his mouth like this Mathew McConaughey sealed my commitment not vote for him. We don't need no stinking masks nor lockdowns in Texas (nor anywhere else in the US) and our stats of new cases prove it.

How does McConnahey feel about the vaccinations. Seems if the Covid didn't get ya the Vaccines might.  This is experimental but more than that authority knows it may do serious harm or death or long term harm like infertility. It becomes clearer with each passing day that our Govt considers the citizenry as their enemy, and I must say, the feeling is quite mutual.

The only reason the this guy is leading in the polls for Texas governor, is because Abbott has not been the friend to Texas gunowners that he promised to be. I, for one, will be voting for someone else in the primary. I'm sad to admit that I was once a supporter of Abbott. I talked with the man for several minutes, in person, at one of his events, associated with the Texas GOP Convention (for those who were there, it was the parking lot event). But today, I must admit that he is not the governor I supported and voted for. I hope and expect that he won't win his primary. So, whoever does win, will coast into the State House and the actor will be wondering what happened.

I am from Texas and with STUPID comments about Diapers that don't work is a reason I would never vote for your LIB attitude, you would just be another RIHNO which we do not need, just do your Lincoln commercials and stay out of politics.

He just lost my support.  The mask mandate, along with this whole shut down is one MASSIVE HOAX.  It he doesn't see it, he is not fit to run for any political office.  Maybe dog catcher.

Another uneducated  tool. Texas watch out for this fool. Too many star eyes women will vote for him. They are not voting to Save Texas from Joe Biden they are voting with their sex hormones. This drugged out actor knows nothing about running a state. Wonder how much money was involved to get this idiot to run. 
HE IS A DAMN IGNORANT FOOLS >THE MASK THAT PEOPLE ARE WEARING NOW WILL NOT STOP A GOOD SNEEZE>: PELOSI IS USING THE MASK TO GRAB POWER>JUST LIKE A DICTATOR>:

Another RINO, if that! Take away a 'little' freedom is to take away all freedom. If one were to take away a little page from a  book does it not lesson the authors intent? Well, the same goes for the authors of our Constitituion and the intent of their purpose. The constitution only counts when it has all of its pages. Same with freedom.
