Hollywood celebrities are commonly in lockstep on all issues.
They can be expected to parrot the left-wing narrative.
But Matt Damon said one thing about vaccines that made liberals gasp for air.
Oscar-nominated actor Matt Damon has run afoul of the left-wing mob recently.
During a press junket for the film Stillwater—a drama about an Oklahoma oil roughneck who travels to France after his daughter is accused of a crime—Damon said he gained an appreciation for Oklahomans’ conservative perspective.
It’s taboo for liberals to exhibit any empathy for anyone who voted for Donald Trump.
And during an interview with Yahoo! Entertainment, Damon broke ranks on the COVID-19 vaccine and said individuals are allowed to make their own choice.
“There are a lot of reasons that people have, and I don’t want to belittle them…It’s tough for me. I have a couple friends who are immunocompromised and they can’t get the vaccine, so they have no choice but to rely on the rest of us to do our part to get to herd immunity. So I look at it that way.”
Damon is pro-vaccine, but it’s verboten even to suggest reasons why someone may not get the vaccine.
“But look, it’s a personal choice. That’s the beauty of America. It’s a free country. And none of us would have it any other way…But I fall heavily on the side of trusting science more than something you read on Facebook.”
However, what Damon doesn’t realize is that there are plenty of leftists that do not want the country to remain free.
The Left is openly attacking the First and Second Amendments.
Since Donald Trump’s victory in 2016, the Left has ramped up the argument that speech is violence.
That has been used as the justification for despicable actions against anyone who questions left-wing orthodoxy.
Vaccine status is quickly becoming the new dividing line in the country.
Vaccine passports are going to be the reality if Americans don’t push back.
Former Planned Parenthood president Leana Wen has been all over CNN lately saying that freedom should be used as an inducement to force vaccine compliance.
Soon public health officials will be calling for punishment against those who are not vaccinated.
America is on the precipice of a two-tiered society.
It’s not far-fetched to believe that banks could start operating along ideological lines.
The Left seems to be actively pushing for this societal split.
Joe Biden and other Democrats call for unity, but all of their actions are incredibly divisive.
For example, New York Times columnist Mara Gay said she was terrified to see people displaying the American flag on Fourth of July weekend.
Damon is a stone-cold liberal, but perhaps research for his film Stillwater gave him perspective that so many of his colleagues don’t get.
There’s another way to live and think that doesn’t dovetail with the establishment narrative.
