[Actor Jon] Voight (again) mincing no words on Obama
The Lone Star Times ^ | August 21, 2009

Posted on 08/22/2009 9:07:16 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Jon Voight, our current favorite non-politician rabble-rouser, isn’t letting up on his warnings of the potential consequences of Barack Obama’s plans and policies.

Voight, who minces no words when discussing this President – recently referring to Obama as a ”false prophet” and urging Republicans to “free the nation” from the “Obama oppression” – has lit into the Chief Executive again, accusing Obama of attempting a “slow, steady takeover of our true freedoms,” and asking if the President is “creating a civil war in our own country?”

In comments to the Washintgon Times, Voight again used the S word:

“We are witnessing a slow, steady takeover of our true freedoms. We are becoming a socialist nation, and whoever can’t see this is probably hoping it isn’t true. If we permit Mr. Obama to take over all our industries, if we permit him to raise our taxes to support unconstitutional causes, then we will be in default. This great America will become a paralyzed nation.”

He also suggested conservatives make sure they know the opposition:

“Do not let the Obama administration fool you with all their cunning Alinsky methods. And if you don’t know what that method is, I implore you to get the book ‘Rules for Radicals,’ by Saul Alinsky . Mr. Obama is very well trained in these methods,” . . ..

Finally, for all the talk of the post-partisan, post-racial Enlightened One, Voight considers him essentially a common bully:

“The real truth is that the Obama administration is professional at bullying, as we have witnessed with ACORN at work during the presidential campaign. It seems to me they are sending down their bullies to create fist fights among average American citizens who don’t want a government-run health care plan forced upon them,” Mr. Voight says. “So I ask again. Is President Obama creating a civil war in our own country?”

(These are particularly interesting comments in light of recent developments, including the Democrats turning special interest groups loose to threaten lawmakers who don’t support a health care ”public option,” and President Obama’s own claims that the grass-roots town hall protests are the product of another vast Republican conspiracy.)

Excuse me while I consult the entertainment section for the location of the nearest Jon Voight film.

So I ask again. Is President Obama creating a civil war in our own country?”

Is Obama Trying to cause a civil war, or is it a result of hi poor leadership/incompetence.

If only the Republican leadership would talk as bluntly as Jon Voigt.

Oops, sorry, that would actually require some guts ...

Maybe he is contemplating running for office - if not..maybe he should.

Why not? Reagan was an actor.

It's Jon Voight. Jon Voight is the actor, John Voight is the guy whose car Jerry Seinfeld bought.

Zero and his Union thug army with the aid of the US Congress are, in my opinion, declaring war upon the American people. No doubt about that in my mind.

I’d love to watch Jon Voight “bitch slap” Reid, Pelosi, Frank and Obama sometime. Great idea for a video game.

Zero, ACORN and his Union thug army, US Congress and Senate and no few state governors are America's domestic enemies.

They have declared war on each and every one of us.

I will not fire the first shot. But I'll do my damnedest to fire the last.

That distant thunder that you may hear rolling through far-off hills is war.

War is coming. Here. Soon.

And, like my father before me, I am prepared. I am prepared to honor my oath.

And I won't be alone.
