Matt Damon is a decent actor but until he’s prepared to follow his own advice, he should probably avoid discussions of public policy. School choice benefits low income people more than anyone else. Damon’s children aren’t the only ones who should be fortunate enough to attend good schools.
PJ Media reports:
Anti-School Choice Activist (and Hypocrite) Matt Damon Sends His Kids to Private School
I won’t lie, I’m a Matt Damon fan. For the most part, I have really enjoyed his body of work as an actor, particularly the Jason Bourne movies. However, throughout his career, I’ve also known that he was a rabid leftist, so I kept that in mind while watching his work.
It wasn’t until recently that I learned he was also a grade “A” hypocrite.
You see, Damon is the son of a public school teacher and a major proponent of public schools. However, as RedState notes, he’s not sending his kids to public school.
According to the Boston Globe, Damon attended a screening of his film “Backpacks Full of Cash” at Wheelock College in Boston to “a capacity crowd of teachers, activists, and students.” The film was created by documentarian Sarah Mondale, who wanted to bring attention to the funding cuts to public schools, and that a public school system should be created that caters to all students…
Here’s the kicker.
Damon’s preaching for public education from a golden pulpit that allows him to send his own children to a private school.
Do as I say, not as I do is the old stand by for the left. It needs to stop.
