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.”

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’

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.

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.

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!

@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.

@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!

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.

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…

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

Bye-Bye American Dream,

KUDOS to Mr. Voight!!!!

@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.

@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.

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.

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.

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 @ 06/09/2009 at 12:56 pm

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!

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

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 @ 06/09/2009 at 1:01 pm

@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 @ 06/09/2009 at 1:01 pm

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.

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 @ 06/09/2009 at 1:02 pm

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.

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.

Someone with some sense, thank you.

evidentley your related to him…..listen to all that praise………
