Jon Voight: Barack Obama is a False Prophet

Jon Voight: Barack Obama is a False Prophet

Jon Voight blasted President Barack Obama at the Republican congressional fundraiser dinner at the Washington Convention Center on Monday (June 8) in Washington D.C. Here are snippets from the 70-year-old actor’s fiery speech:

“Are we supposed to sitting and waiting, watching for the possibility of a new Holocaust? Who’s going to take the responsibility to keep America, I mean Israel, safe. I’ll tell you why this really scares the hell out of me. Everything Obama has recommended has turned out to be disastrous.

“It saddens me greatly to think we were the great powerful good in the world. We as Americans knew America to be strong. We were the liberators of the entire world. We are becoming a weak nation.

Obama really thinks he is a soft-spoken Julius Caesar. He think he’s going to conquer the world with his soft-spoken sweet talk and really think he’s going to bring all of the enemies of the world into a little playground, where they’ll swing each other back and forth.

“We and we alone are the right frame of mind to free this nation from this Obama oppression. Let’s give thanks to [Republicans] for not giving up and staying the course to bring an end to this false prophet, Obama.”

    what a nutter. no wonder angelina disowned him.

  • lani

    well said, Jon!

  • wow

    Wow!!! Angelina in 20 years.

  • edkso

    whoa now.
    homeboy ain’t shy of a little controversy it seems.

  • hey shmu uc

    The apple does not fall far from the tree. Evenutally Angelina will line up with her father’s politics – she is not that far away now.

  • Londs

    A failed actor and father. Angelina hardly gives him the time of day and rightly so, the man’s an oath. He needs to clean up his own backyard and shut the ‘F’ up.

  • Sal

    @hey shmu uc: Strange – I didn’t know UN Ambassadors and Refugee Advocates were Republican. Clearly you’re confused and haven’t been following Angelina, because anyone knows she’s hard-core Democrat.

  • Dominica

    well everyone is entitled to their opinion but the fact is that president obama has only been in office for 5 months so i think john voight’s criticism is excessive and frankly absurd. if he’d made a comment like this during the george w bush presidency, voight would have been slammed as “anti-american”. it’s nice to see freedom of speech is back in effect in the u.s.a. under president obama. for heaven’s sake, give the man a chance.

  • Pattycake

    I guess the apple didn’t fall far from the tree. Voight senior and Voight junior (Jolie) both think by virtue of their celebrity fame that they can speak out about issues that they know very little about. At least Jolie keeps most of her stuff confined to photo opportunities of herself in foreign aid camps or attending international meetings (like the Hague) at which she glares her disapproval at the participants. They are both private citizens and entitled to their opinions but I wish they’d confine them to private moments.

  • me

    When did he become so “involved” in politics?! Everytime I look around Voigt is blasting someone about something that he probably knows NOTHING about. Just because you played the secretary of state in Transformers doesn’t mean you’re all of a sudden a political genius!

  • a total fan

    He is entitled to his opinions, this is America after all. Freedom of Speech. I have to give him credit that he is not afraid to speak his mind. But what he says is not necessarily what the majority thinks so I know he is going to be attack for what he said.

  • vitaa

    Jon Voight is completely crazy! Stay away from him, Angelina!
    He’s as stupid as Bush, I can’t believe we let this kind of person speak publicly…. what an idiot

  • T

    um, he should really go sit down somewhere

  • suz

    Pattycake, you’re an idiot. STFU. You don’t know what you’re talking about.

  • owen

    Amen Jon Voight!
    Just because he is the first colored skin president doesn’t mean he is messiah.
    People, before you bash Jon Voight or me, please be educated and learn about his policies and the future outcome of it.

  • aunt em

    Angelina does not speak to father and does not share her father’s political views. I hope she continues to keep her children away from this man. I have a feeling that the reason she stays away from him is the ugliest reason of abuse there is. Protect your kids, Angie and Brad!

  • amanda

    good for him. i’m glad some people shed light on the bad situation that is barack obama. someome needs to speak out and take all the people who still think barack is fit to be president and doing an excellent job out of their delusional states of mind.

  • lua

    Jon Voight is a senile old man. “We were the liberators of the entire world”??? WTF??

  • L

    A major “whatever” to this guy. Give Obama a chance. Does Voight think that Obama is a magician who could have changed America and the rest of the world within a week? Voight probably wouldn’t even manage it in his whole presidential career. I’m not even American but I’m so on the Obama’s side.

  • coxoxi

    Well said!!!!!!!!!

  • Tukei

    I think the man is just miserable about life and family. Which he doesn’t have. Obama, on the other hand have that.

  • Londs

    Voight should start a twitter page to raise his profile like most struggling jobbing actors and quit the mindless rants.

  • cc

    Um….now I see where AJ gets her nuttiness from…

  • Harry

    Totally agree Jon.

  • Halli

    Freak…. who thinks of Obama as a prophet???
    Oh, I know, crazy overly political people like Jon Voight.
    Only people I’ve seen who claim Obama is a prophet or the Messiah are right-wingers.

  • E

    Jon Voight sounds like a neoconservative nazi. Shut up and sit down. I think he got punched too hard during the making of “Champ”, great movie though. Is Angie letting him see the grandchildren yet or not? It would so do much for his demeanor. I think his trip to Israel might have come with a little brain washing, no?

    Tell me lies, tell me sweet little lies……’just jared’

  • Tatiana

    That silly old fool needs to take a nap somewhere.

    Not only does NO ONE give damn what he thinks, he’s being absolutely ridiculous. As for ‘the possibility of a new holocaust’ . . . is he serious? First he wonders who is going to keep America safe, and then he CORRECTS himself to say Israel. ISRAEL? You’re concerned about Israel? If this economy doesn’t get any better we won’t have the resources to help OURSELVES, much less freaking Israel! (Before anyone says anything, the poor state of the economy has nothing to do with Obama, it’s the result of the poor practices of our PREVIOUS presidency.) I know Israel is supposed to be allies of ours, but come on! Does he even know what is coming out of his own mouth? Does he even know what year it is?

    Someone needs to get that senile a-hole an easy chair and a crocheted blanket. STAT.

  • Bbgun

    Pattycake STFU u r just like him, a “person” who doesnt really know what the eff r they talking about. at least Jolie is trying to put a light on those places where is still war torn and/or poor. If it wasn’t for her and those “photo opportunities” we wouldn’t know a thing about why is that part of the country the way it is now. At least she knows what the eff is she talking about unlike her father who seems to be talking only merde all the time in regards to politics and his own daughter, no wonder why she doesn’t even regards him as a father.

  • Chrisopher

    Jon’s a fool. He’s a nutter.

    Someone needs to tell Jon that the world already see America in a much brighter light now that BUSH is GONE!
    They NEVER saw America as a “liberator” Jon, so take your phony-macho politics and shove it up where the sun don’t shine.
    We already tried Jon’s kind of politics, and it got us into two wars we will never win and a destroyed economy.

    PASS!

  • PammyK

    @Dominica: You are so right! With the mess he was given to clean up, they (repubs) act like he can fix it overnight. The world is so full of ignorant people; its sad.

  • Halli

    @Tatiana:

    I agree Tatiana.
    Jon’s nuts to invoke the Holocaust for his trivial b.s.
    Israel better care about America taking care of herself first. We can’t be the worlds police anymore… we need to start taking care of the USA!

  • Sgt Friday

    I’m not really a fan of either political side, but it doesn’t take much to see Jonny boy is a nutter. *Cue the crazy music* He really doesn’t seem sound upstairs.

  • maria

    he’s definitely entitled to his opinion, but I agree with those who said that it’s too early in Obama’s term to make a judgment call on his legacy…

    I’ve actually met Jon Voight (at a local event) and I can say that he is a very kind and gracious man…he made sure all the fans had autographs and pics…he went out of his way to answer questions and appeared very humble…he even stayed for a couple hours after he was obligated to and hung out with everyone…

    Based on the troublesome relationship b/w him and his children, I was expecting an arrogant and self-absorbed man…but that was far from the truth…I found him gracious and down-to-earth…he wasn’t the monster he has been painted to be in the media or by his children…

  • Rhonda

    Wow, Go Jon!!! America has made a terrible mistake.

    Bye-Bye American Dream,

  • http://www.socialvibe.com hwooddood

    KUDOS to Mr. Voight!!!!

  • Sal

    @maria: Maria, you say he wasn’t the monster he was ‘painted by his children’, how do YOU know? Where you there in their childhood? Do you SERIOUSLY know what goes on behind closed doors, when he is not, of course, ‘putting on a show’ in public, for fans? If you really think how he is in front of paying fans is how he truly is behind closed doors in real life, you are nothing short of a fool.

  • Londs

    @maria:

    He’s a struggling aging actor and failed father will a lot of time on his hands, of course he’s going to impress the ‘fans’ by giving them the time of day.

  • http://khristi06/09/2009@12:50pm Khristi

    I have to say that even though I support Obama-I am skeptical of anyone no matter how good their intentions are when power is involved because no one is immune to that kind of corruption. I totally disagree with John Voight here because he was criticizing Obama way before he won the Democratic election. He seems like someone who is very bitter about not only politics, but life in general.

  • CHRISTINE

    OH MY GOD. LOL, NOW I’VE SEEN IT ALL. PEOPLE SAY THAT ANGELINA IS INSANE BUT NOW WE KNOW JON’S THE INSANE ONE. HIM AND SPENCER PRATT ARE ONE IN THE SAME…. JON HASN’T EVEN SEEN HIS OWN GRANDCHILDREN AND HE’S SPEWING FORTH THIS FANATIC KRAP? WHAT’S WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE? LORD HAVE MERCY. QUITE THE SPECTACLE THAT INSANE HOLLYWOOD IS. WHERE DO THESE ACTORS THINK THEY GET OFF SHOUTING OUT TO THE CROWD THAT THEY’RE RIGHT ABOUT THEIR BELIEFS. YOU GIVE THEM A STAGE TO PERFORM ON AND THEY START SCREAMING INSANITY. THEIR HEADS ARE SO FILLED WITH FLUID, THEY TRULY BELIEVE THEY ARE EACH THE NEXT JESUS!! I SWEAR, I THINK ALL OF THEM ARE HIGH OR DRUNK ON A NORMAL BASIS.

  • observer

    I feel sorry for the Republicans having this old joke blasting Obama like that. What did he want Obama to do in the time he has been in office. I thought recent news said there are signs the economy is improving. Jon stfu… this is not 24. This is life

  • can’t forget 9/11

    lets not forget what our usa went through-how many attacks we have endure-how people lost there life’s-from those terrorist from abroad or home grown-i wish the leaders of our own country could be the power it was before we got weaker- I love our country-but look where its going economics is down people have lost jobs etc. american can do better!

  • Pattycake

    @suz: You told me…and so eloquently too. You should really consider going on a speaking tour.

  • pam

    WAY TO GO JON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OBAMA IS RUINING THE WORLD…..”ONLY BEEN IN OFFICE 5 MONTHS” HAHAHAH GIVE ME A BREAK. LOOK AT ALL THE CRAP HE’S DONE IN THAT 5 MONTHS.

  • Pattycake

    @Bbgun:” If it wasn’t for her and those “photo opportunities” we wouldn’t know a thing about why is that part of the country the way it is now.” That’s true if you get your news soley from gossip web sites.

  • Desperate republicans

    Rush, Newt, Sarah & Voigt? If they represent the Republican party I’ll pass! A bunch of ignorant, paranoid, bigots who can’t accept the fact that the majority of this nation spoke and President Obama was elected by the people. Sore losers desperate now to figure out what happened…not too bright if they still don’t get it.

  • letterm

    I used to feel sorry for Voight that Angie would not let him see the grandchildren…..now I wonder exactly why. Good Lord, I wonder if Voight abused Angie and she is protecting her kids? I know that Angie seems like she cares much about humanity and her own children and Brad.
    Her father is a NUT CASE, Poor Angie!!!!

    Shut up, Jon Voight, respect our President.

  • Christopher

    Jon’s a psycho and so is anybody else who thinks they can judge an entire presidency after only 4 months. LOL!
    Get over yourselves.

  • Ali

    His statements are ludicrous! What has 8 years of Republican warmongering and looting the Treasury done to this country and to our standing in the world? And he blasts Obama who is trying to reframe and repair our democracy as well as our place in the family of nations. Obviously, Voight wants the limelight and attention, and the Republicans have no voice except inflammatory lies and namecalling. Obama is the smartest and most capable president we have had in many, many years. He has not sold out to business nor to Israel. He is working to right this country from its distortions of the past 8 years. How many billions of dollars went to the KBR Halliburton Group, and the Carlyle Group parties under Bush/Cheney? They sent soldiers who were ill-equipped to fight in Iraq because they had inappropriate body armor and jeep armor – and during Bush/Cheney’s regime those wounded soldiers had to beg for treatment and support.

    No, there is no ascension to prophecy in Obama; that is not who Obama is. He is potentially an extraordinary leader. He wants the US to be respected and to be true to our calling as a nation to be models of justice and freedom and goodness in the world, while holding steadfast to our Constitution. We must support Obama and write in and raise questions when we have them, but support his leadership and his obvious desire to do a good job as president. I am immensely proud of him.
