Jon Voight: Barack Obama Will Weaken America

Jon Voight has taken a very public stance for the Republican nominee for President, Sen. John McCain. The 69-year-old actor had some very strong words for Sen. Barack Obama and shared them with The Washington Times:

Sen. Barack Obama has grown up with the teaching of very angry, militant white and black people: the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, William Ayers and Rev. Michael Pfleger. We cannot say we are not affected by teachers who are militant and angry. We know too well that we become like them, and Mr. Obama will run this country in their mindset.

“The Democratic Party, in its quest for power, has managed a propaganda campaign with subliminal messages, creating a God-like figure in a man who falls short in every way. It seems to me that if Mr. Obama wins the presidential election, then Messrs. Farrakhan, Wright, Ayers and Pfleger will gain power for their need to demoralize this country and help create a socialist America.

“And while a misleading portrait of Mr. Obama is being perpetrated by a media controlled by the Democrats, the Obama camp has sent out people to attack the greatness of Sen. John McCain, whose suffering and courage in a Hanoi prison camp is an American legend… If, God forbid, we live to see Mr. Obama president, we will live through a socialist era that America has not seen before, and our country will be weakened in every way.”

    what an idiot. just because John McCain suffered horribly in a Hanoi camp does NOT mean he’ll be a better President. Gee Jon…it sounds like you’re elevating JOHN MCCAIN to GOD-like status just because he was a prisoner of war. lay off the plastic surgery and Botox…apparently it’s affecting your brain and turning you into a moron.

    At least Obama speaks and thinks of the future of America. Mc Cain is old and senile man who has not moved far from the past he had as a soldier in Vietnam….Europe likes Obama! He has friendly and warm face. Mc Cain face is perfect for horror like Haloween.

    Thank you Jared for posting such a relevant post about the world we’re living in. Now we get to see why Angelina has distanced herself from such a man. how anyone can believe Sen. McCain will be good for this country is beyond me. Again, thank you for this post.

    1. I’m more than a little sick of actors talking about the state of politics. you’re an actor! act!!! listening to craziness like this overshadows those few well informed celebrities and more importantly, those political analysts and intellectuals who do this for a living. i couldn’t care less what jon voight thinks, especially now that we know he’s crazy.
    2. did he miss the end of the cold war? someone should fill this dude in…

    jes Says:

    no wonder Angelina doesn’t want anything to do with him. I am sure she feels the same about McCain!

    Elena Says:

    This has just reassured me how good of a decision Angelina made by distancing herself and her children/family from this man.
    If he is like this publically imagine what he’s really like… Scary.

    Good job Angelina!:D

    I always thought Angelina was being hard-hearted refusing to have anything to do with her father……… it’s perfectly clear why she keeps him away from his grandchildren.

    Ha! I remember Angie once in an interview saying that Voight is the one who needs help, now we see evidence… I hope Angie doesn’t vote for McCain, we still don’t know who she’s voting for.
