Red State ^ | 8/28/12

Posted on 08/28/2012 12:55:20 PM PDT by hope

Voight answers the question of whether President Obama is a Marxist: “Well his father was a marxist. Of course he was influenced by his mother who led him toward his father’s Marxism, yes! His mentor as a child who was a fellow by the name of Frank Marshall Davis, he was a communist. And of course his alliances from that time on. His mentor, his acknowledged mentor Saul Alinksy was a communist agitator.” He was asked the follow-up question “so he’s a Marxist?” To which Voight replies, “figure it out.”

He’s a tremendous actor. Pity he’ll never work in Hollywood again.

He already accepted the fact he won’t work again. Grammer got the gig at Starz as a good # of people in that company think like us.

If Christy says, in his keynote speech, that Obama is a Marxist, I will send him (Christy) a personal check for $500.00 for his next campaign.

Ubama is a Marxist because there is not one of the ten planks of Karl Marx's Communist Manifesto that he disagrees with.

The Ten Planks of Karl Marx's Communist Manifesto
(and How Statists Implement Them)

  1. Abolition of private property rights (via high property taxes, restrictive zoning laws, "fair housing" edicts, environmental and "wetlands" regulations, and UN Agenda 21)

  2. Institution of a heavily graduated income tax (by calling it "taxing the rich")

  3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance (through a confiscatory estate tax on "the rich")

  4. Confiscation of the property of enemies of the state (through lawless application of asset forfeiture and eminent domain)

  5. Centralization of credit into the hands of the state (Federal Reserve, Federal Trade Commission, TARP, etc.)

  6. Centralization of the means of communication and transportation into the hands of the state (FCC, DOT, FEMA, etc.).

  7. Consolidation and subjugation of all major industries to central government control (FDA, EPA, OSHA, ICC, NLRB, EEOC, etc.)

  8. Mandatory labor union membership (public-sector unions, unionization of 21-million Obamacare health care workers, automatic withholding of forced union dues, "card check," etc.)

  9. Equitable redistribution of all wealth (TANF, SSI, EITC, SNAP, etc.)

  10. Free public education (and food and health care and cell phones and Internet access, etc.)

I hope you didn’t take that as disrespectful—
I was responding to that photoshopped picture of
him as the Pope, and was continuing the religious theme.
Maybe I responded to the wrong poster.

. . . becoming more and more irrelivant?

Did you expect they'd be all extreme libs? Didn't a Hollywood guy Douglas Urbanski just recently filed in for Rush show?

It was me and it wasn't photoshopped. Jon Voight did a masterful job in the role of the late Great Pope John Paul II in 2006 ....

For those who haven’t seen it, Midnight Cowboy was a terrific movie starring the now-conservative Jon Voight with the still-liberal Dustin Hoffman.

1. If Voight prepared well, he shouldn’t need to work. He is 74 years of age.

2. He HAS been working, just as Grammar HAS been working.

Some people need to climb down off the “conservatives as victims” paradigm.

[ Why is he not??? ]


Not what?... A moron can deduce Zero is a Marxist...
As are most socialists.. Communism “IS” Marxism.. AND socialism.. as are/were Fascists and Nazi’s... and democrats..

Democracy is the road to socialism. -Karl Marx

Democracy is indispensable to socialism. The goal of socialism is communism. -V.I. Lenin

The meaning of peace is the absence of opposition to socialism .-Karl Marx
