McConaughey is just in the wrong venue.
Gun-control advocates are very pleased with the speech that actor Matthew McConaughey made from the White House podium, but as is typical, people tend not to look beyond agreement to important secondary considerations.
By his choice to be a national activist on this issue, rather than a state one, McConaughey blurred his core issue in the broader issue of our entire system of government. His performance would have reached a wider array of sympathetic ears if he’d focused on Texas law.
Similarly, by marching out with Biden’s lead propagandist and speaking from her podium, he mixed the issue with partisan politics.
Failing to think about such things is why we’re so divided and spiraling downward so quickly.
