Jon Voight Lashes Out Against Obama In Lengthy Televised Statement
The Hollywood Reporter ^ | 07/13/2014 | THR Staff

Posted on 07/13/2014 1:48:01 PM PDT by DFG

The Oscar-winning actor aired grievances on Fox News, framing them as a message to the American public. "The Democrat party has become a very negative force," he said.

In remarks framed as a message to the American public, actor Jon Voight emotionally aired his political grievances for several minutes in a televised statement on Saturday.

Those grievances range from (but are not limited to) Benghazi, the IRS scandal, the "targeting" of conservative filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza, illegal immigration, the Hobby Lobby Supreme Court case, the treatment of war veterans, the chaos in Iraq and deep reservations about President Obama.

His daughter Angelina Jolie has directed a new film called ‘Unbroken’, which appears pretty good.

A g@@gle search of hollywoodreporter.com for “bush” and “lashes out” finds 9 matches, none of them in headlines about left wing actors lashing out at President Bush.

Liberals outrage against Bush is justified.

“The War”
“Gitmo”
“Bush knew”
“Sat in a chair reading My Pet Goat instead of ‘doing something’”
“high gasoline prices”
“unemployment”
“unpatriotic hike of the national debt”

All of those things are much worse now, of course, except Obama probably cannot read.

Unbroken is a book you should start on a Friday night or Saturday morning when you don’t have something earthshaking that you absolutely have to do.

I stayed awake reading until I could no longer keep my eyelids up and as soon as I awoke I started reading again. It is really amazing, mesmerizing and hard to believe all this could have actually happened - especially to one person.

The Democrat party used to represent workers and the GOP represented big (and small business). This is natural schism that exists in all free societies both parties had their strengths depending on the times.

Today, the Dems represent nothing that has to do with labor. In fact, illegal immigration hits blue-collar workers the hardest. The Dems simply build power on perceived social slights, class envy, and victim hood....all while standing for and solving absolutely nothing.

They get the country arguing about black vs white, religious freedom, and women’s issues (so called), but it really all leads no where. It just gets us all worked up with no payoff....no plan...no principle at stake, except the principle of power.

Obama is not only a bad president. He is a bad person. He has a a bigger chip on his shoulder than the State of Rhode Island. He is resentful, envious, and insecure. He does not respect 70% of the country and loathes at least half of it. He childishly refuses to talk...to run the government....an instead ‘takes the ball and goes home’ ...when things don’t go his way.

The Dems really screwed up nominating this guy, and the uninformed voters and the guilt-ridden white people, added to that screw-up by voting him president. The final nail was the media sucking-up to this guy to shoe how ‘open-minded and progressive they were.’ We have 2.5 years left of this idiot as President and I will not be surprised at all if we get social unrest before his term ends. It’s our current trajectory (there can be no doubt of that) and it’s what all imperialist need in order to gain more control over those they hate.

Uhggg!!!

One of the best, most compelling narratives I’ve ever read!

A trailer just came out for the movie and it looks really good.

I just saw it, my father taped it man oh live, pretty sad when a Hollywood actor has to come out and say what our own Republican party is too chicken sh*t to say. This guy hit it right on target.
