Skip to comments.[Actor Jon] Voight (again) mincing no words on Obama
Posted on 08/22/2009 9:07:16 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Jon Voight, our current favorite non-politician rabble-rouser, isnt letting up on his warnings of the potential consequences of Barack Obamas 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 cant see this is probably hoping it isnt 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 dont 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 dont 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 dont support a health care public option, and President Obamas 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.
I really like John Voight.
Mincing no words... There is no doubt who’s side Voight is on. A great American who’s movies I love!
OH my. JOhn Voight for Congress!
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 ...
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Jon Voight. SPOT ON as always. He is a good man. I always seem him every year on TV during the Chabad Telethon.
I bet he reads Free Republic.
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.
Yes. the bullying. It is what they do best, and this is what they have done since his inauguration. “I won, he said, implying that the Republicans KHA.
He should run for Congress, he is just the guy we need to help fix Washington
I suspect alot more of Hollywood et al feels the same way, they’re just too cowardly to publicly admit it
I’d love to watch Jon Voight “bitch slap” Reid, Pelosi, Frank and Obama sometime. Great idea for a video game.
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.
Just remember, when the SHTF....12 gauge. It works wonders.
Elections can be won; respect, however, is earned.
Jon Voight. Jon Voight Voight is the actor, John Voight..etc

George Castanza bought the car. (I know, picky picky)
I thought so but wasn’t sure. Thanks for the info.
