One of the anti-American schemes of the Marxist Obama Regime, as well as that of the “progressive” Democrat Party is to divide as many Americans into entitled groups as possible, doling out money from other taxpayers for the purpose of purchasing each individual’s vote within the various groups. Victimhood is the message, whether you’re black, homosexual, Hispanic, poor, female, or a transvestite, and any other block they can convince is oppressed, and the “generous” and “caring” leftists (with other people’s money that they take by government force) will welcome you to their Democrat plantation (envision modern day Detroit), after doing a complete job of stoking your bitterness.
The message from the Democrat Party is, “You’re a worthless loser. However, you are entitled to what only we, the political ruling class, can provide for you — now vote for us for eternity while we pander and tickle your ears.” Flowery, yet empty, terms such as fairness, social justice and income equality (or inequality) are used to promote their deceptive Marxist agenda.
And if you do happen to work your butt off, make smart decisions, and achieve greatness, some two-bit Marxist killjoys like Barack Obama or Elizabeth Warren come along and tell you, “You didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”
So why even bother? Just lay back as the entitled blob you are and let big daddy government take care of you.
The overwhelming majority of college commencement addresses are given by closed-minded leftists, preaching their freedom and America-hating ways to graduates who have already been brainwashed for four or more years by radical statist professors who have never held a real job in their lives. But, every once in a while, someone breaks through and is allowed to speak at a college who isn’t anti-achievement, anti-success and anti-freedom.
Enter Hollywood megastar Matthew McConaughey, who addressed the Spring 2015 graduating class of 4,300 at the University of Houston Friday evening, blasting the entitlement and “fairness” (i.e., communism) meme of Barack Obama and his henchmen.
And McConaughey didn’t mince words as he opened his speech.
“Congratulations class of 2015. Life’s not fair. It never was, it isn’t now and won’t ever be. Do not fall into the trap — the entitlement trap of feeling like you’re a victim. You are not.”
Alright, alright, alright!
McConaughey explained that both his success and happiness took off when he stopped thinking about his work as an end to a means, but just enjoyed the journey. “Personally, as an actor, I started enjoying my work and literally being more happy when I stopped trying to make the daily labor a means to a certain end,” he explained. “For example, ‘I need this film to be a box office success.'”
ABC News captured a few excerpts of the speech (Watch Below) and said that all of the students afterwards gave the fully bearded McConaughey “two thumbs up.”
