Hypocrite Matt Damon: No CA public schools for his kids

Hypocrite Matt Damon: No CA public schools for his kids

HollywoodHypocrites0330It doesn’t get much more hypocritical than this. Actor Matt Damon, who berated a Reason think thank staffer in 2011 for daring to question the quality of teachers at public schools, thinks California’s public schools aren’t good enough for his kids:

“Matt Damon fervently supports American public schools and increased funding for American public schools. Strangely, however, he has chosen not to send any of his four children to the schools he loves so much.

“The mega-wealthy, left-wing actor divulged his decision in a weekend interview with a British newspaper, reports the Daily Mail. He was promoting a new science-fiction movie, ‘Elysium.’

“Perhaps the most delicious part of the story is Damon’s wacky rationale: he says public schools just aren’t sufficiently ‘progressive’ to suit his politics.

“Damon, 42, is moving to Los Angeles from New York. Just like millions of Americans, except in the completely opposite way, he claimed he doesn’t ‘have a choice’ when it comes to private schooling.”

That’s from the Daily Caller.

What makes it even more hypocritical is that this isn’t a situation like a president deciding to send his kids to Sidwell Friends in Washington D.C. both because D.C. schools stink and for security reasons. Damon has moved to Beverly Hills, according to reports. Beverly Hills High School is considered a very good public school. The elementary schools in Beverly Hills also get good marks. But they’re not good enough for Damon, the massive hypocrite.

    The Libtard mantra is “judge us by what we say, not what we do”. Does Crazyfornia really need another filthy rich, hypocritical, Prog-Bot actor? Please Damon, stay in New York, it deserves you.

    I read some of the reviews of Mattera’s “Hollywood”.

    No surprises…..just reinforcement of what complete jackwagons these people are.

    Of all these Hollywood types I can think of but one that merits a pass: Ed Begley Jr. Ed has lots of ideas – some good, most nutty – but to his credit he lives what he preaches.
