Posted on 07/02/2009 4:18:55 AM PDT by lakeprincess
Free speech got a loud boost from Hollywood on Wednesday. Jon Voight has responded to accusations from a critic sympathetic to the American Communist Party, who said the actor had used hate speech and threatened the well-being of President Obama during a recent appearance before Republicans in Washington.
Mr. Voight denied both charges, saying that those who speak out against the Obama administration are "demonized" and "attacked," often with hate speech.

The fact a Communist defends BO says all you need to know about him.
I would never threaten the well-being of President Obama.
WEre the antiAmerican socialist punk to somehow get thrown off the White House roof though I’d go out in the street and celebrate.
During the presidential campaign, the website for The Communist Party USA was whole-heartedly endorsing Obama.
So what’s new? In the context of the speech, Voight is not calling for personal harm to Obama. Yet the usual Obama butt kissers swoon and faint and put on the usual histrionics.
Great to see someone, relatively new on the scene, stand up and fight back.
Before I am pounced on, I am sure that Voight has been standing tall for a time, but, his profile is just recently enlarging and he seems to have a pair.
Good for Jon Voight. He continues to impress.
And he called out Albano and her publication for the Communist tools they are, and always have been.
I think this is the speech Voight made that was referred to:
To my chagrin, I hesitate to go to the Wash Times site because it seems to lock up my computer...anyone else notice that this website is full of weird stuff or poorly constructed?
I agree with Jon. We need more folks just like him, ones who will tell it like it really is.
What is it called when the act of disagreeing with the ideas and policies of a man who happens to be black is labeled as “racism”?
We’re looking at it, and the word is being used as a bludgeon to stifle many sincere but fearful people. We’re going to be called a lot worse before this is over, so we’d better get used to it. I’d rather be falsely labeled a racist than spend my life submitting to The Obama.
I’ll watch a Jon Voight movie. Clint Eastwood and Robert Duvall as well. The rest of Hollywood can shove it...
Jon Voight has been on Fox news several times, he’s on the right side and not afraid to say so.
Why can't anyone else see this?
Good thing he didn’t say the President should be killed like the Dems did.
That a Hollywood actor instead of a politician or a religious leader to call a red a red and show that those sympathetic to communism agree with Obama, gives me cause to worry for the future of our great Republic. Do we the people have the will to stand up to tyranny and the erosion of our freedoms or are we mindless sheep, more concerned with being civil towards our opponents then in directly challenging and exposing them for the communists they are?
And he always seems to have a unique and interesting angle on issues. We need more like him.
You gotta love Jon Voight. The man will not be intimidated and is unfazed by their lies and demonizations and hits them hard with their own reflection. Voight has put perfectly into words just what 0bama and his supporters are.
It won’t take five years, my FRiend. By 2010 it will be in full swing.
Now that obama has a filibuster proof Senate to go with the House along with no opposition he will move rapidly implementing his agenda.
I don’t like it but that is what the majority voted for. I hope they enjoy it.
Conservative: “The president’s policies will not work.” (This is “hate” speech.)
Libtard answer: “You (the Conservative) are a lying sack of **** and should be lynched, put in jail, and hung.” (This is not hate speech.)
