Matthew McConaughey Keeps Flirting With Alt-Right Darlings

When Matthew McConaughey’s book, Greenlights, first debuted last fall, the memoir included an interesting acknowledgement. In the back of the book, McConaughey thanks Jordan Peterson—a controversial Canadian professor and public speaker who has risen to prominence by fearmongering about “political correctness” on college campuses, advocating for men’s rights, and battling a bill meant to protect trans and nonbinary people.

Peterson is just one of several controversial figures who have coalesced in the past few years within the so-called “intellectual dark web”—a lot that also includes podcaster Joe Rogan and conservative pundit Ben Shapiro, among others. But that moniker belies the true mundanity of these guys’ belief system—most of them largely spend their time complaining about anything that smacks of “political correctness” and waiting for the yet-t0-be-seen Armageddon that “cancel culture” will surely one day usher in.


This week, McConaughey appeared on Peterson’s podcast, about a year or so after the actor said he’d begun corresponding with Peterson.“Many of the things you said I had been thinking about, but I heard you putting them into words and contexts, I was like, Wow, that’s what I’m talking about, that’s what I'm trying to get to,” McConaughey told Peterson. “And a lot of it goes back to self-determination, which we've talked a lot about. Self-authoring.”

It might seem somewhat surprising that McConaughey’s book tour has offered a platform for people like Peterson to fret over comedians’ right to jerk off in front of whoever they want, so long as they make sure to issue a quick apology afterward. But then again, the actor’s past comments about Hollywood’s disdain for Trump—and his more recent complaints about the “illiberal left” last winter—might have offered a hint of where things were headed.

McConaughey will probably be the next Incel Governor of Texas.
