Public School Advocate Matt Damon Enrolls Kids in Private School
breitbart.com ^ | 8/5/13 | John Nolte

Posted on 08/05/2013 1:58:52 PM PDT by ColdOne

In an interview with the Guardian published Saturday, Damon revealed that he had just moved to Los Angeles from New York, but that he didn't "have a choice" when it came to putting his four daughters into private schools. The multi-millionaire did say that it was "a major moral dilemma" and then made the bizarre excuse that the public schools aren't "progressive" enough.

This would probably mark the first time anyone has ever complained that America's public schools, especially in Los Angeles, aren't left-wing enough.

Translation: not communist enough. Not enough revision of history. 2 + 2 still equals 4, not 5.

That is true. But on top of that, there are few things I despise more than people who say they don’t have a choice.

The idiot Matt Damon has confused himself with one of the moronic characters in his stupid movies. When did Damen break up with Ben Afflack(!)?

He’s following the “progressive” mantra:
“Do as we force you to do, not as we do ourselves. You aren’t worthy of doing as we do.”

The unanswered question is: Did his daughters go to public school in NY?

He put his four daughters in private school so they wouldn’t have to shower with guys who decided that they were going to be female for a day.

The ONLY reason the leftists want kids in public school is so that they can expose them to atheism, communism, bullying, and sexual molestation.

Liar. Because of his money he did have a choice and exercised it.

The crime is the people he wants to consign to his union-run failed schools don't have enough money to make the same choice. He's just another evil, lefty hypocrite.

Publik Skools are for the unwashed masses. The “non-progressive” little people (That’s ignorant people for those in Rio Linda). All good liberal DemocRATS like Damon know that. That’s why they “support” Publik Skools. LOL! The “little people” buy movie tickets.

As lame as Jimmuh Carter was, he did send his idiot daughter to public school in DC. Can’t understand why Caliph Baraq didn’t follow that example....

SURPRISE, SURPRISE!

Hypocrite Matt Damon makes non-Science movies about fracking and is STILL trying to convince people that the Gorebull Warming hoax is real.

Bet he drives a car.
Bet he uses natural gas when he's cold.
Bet he flies in a non-solar power plane.

So he chose to put his kids in private schools and then says he didn't have a choice. Your money gave you that choice, asshat. Which most of us don't have.

So, Matt Damon is as much a LIAR as his American Idol, Barry Sotero. What’s so bizzare about that?

True, there generally is always a choice, most times several of them.

When you say, "I don't have a choice" it means that what you chose was the least inconvenient for you.

Exactly. In some situations, all available choices may be poor, but there are still choices. It's only honest to say, "I chose X." If you like, you can explain it, justify it, or say, "And it was a mistake!"

I hope his new movie tanks. No vouchers for inner city kids but pricy private school for his spawn.

In the sense that the reality of parenthood is that you are not going to lift your little finger to give anyone a better chance than your own child gets, he had “no choice.” Hypocritical? Of course. It’s what “liberals” are, and who they are.

Damon is a close racist. His kids would be exposed to low income black culture if they attended public school.
