Matthew McConaughey: Don’t change Redskins logo, we’ve been fine with it since 1930s

Matthew McConaughey

Hollywood actor Matthew McConaughey is a big fan of the Washington Redskins name and logo — despite the chorus of the politically correct who want to see both changed.

“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,” McConaughey told GQ magazine.

“I love the emblem. 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.” he said.

This isn’t the first time the native Texan has gone against the left-wing Hollywood mold.

When he received the Best Actor award at the 86th annual Academy Awards, McConaughey made it a point to thank God first and foremost.

“There are three things that I need each day. One of them is something to look up to, another is something to look forward and another is someone to chase,” he said in his speech.

“First off, I want to thank God, ’cause that’s who I look up to. He’s graced my life with opportunities that I know is not of my hand or any other human hand. He has shown me that it’s a scientific fact that gratitude reciprocates. In the words of the late Charlie Lawton who said ‘when you got God, you got a friend and that friend is you.”

He received a sparse smattering of applause for that speech while, at the same show, the crowd went wild for a man accused of child molestation, Woody Allen.

In the world of Hollywood, left-wing lunacy, Matthew McConaughey continues to be a beacon of common sense and class.
