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.”

    Republicans and those with similar viewpoints need to wake up to the fact that America will never regain its No. 1 superpower status. A nation to be admired and feared. Those days are long gone… I repeat, long gone and will NEVER return. Get over it! China is bank rolling/buying US debt for goodness sake. Obama’s democratic approach is enhancing the US reputation…. a rep that was in the gutter. Stop whining!

    *******

    That;s true. China owns America’s debt.
    I guess it’s hard for many people of JV’s generation to accept the fact that the US is no longer alone at the top.
    Former pres. Clinton said in a speech quite some time ago, at one of the universities, that America has to get used to the fact that there are others coming up. The US is getting company at the top. China, of course and, down the road, India, Russia, Brazil. Indonesia was mentioned in a distant fifth place.

    That conciliatory speech in Cairo is not enough!
    The only way to enhance the US reputation is when the US bullies Israel into accepting a Palestinian state, and the terms have to be acceptable to the Arabs, led by Saudi Arabia. With Netanyahu in power, that will take time!

    Judging by the reactions posted, Mr. Voight apparently was correct: worshiping Obie IS pretty much akin to a cult or a religion! You’d think someone criticized Jesus or Mohammed by the over the top posts! Congrats, Mr. Voight! You struck a nerve. Several.

    INTERESTING…

    Someone here mentioned that had this been said during the Bush Administraion, he would have been called ‘Ant-American’. True words my friend.

    what this man sounds like is a hate monger. he is purposely trying to instill fear. he like most Fear/Hate mongers know that the 2 often go hand and hand. he uses incindiary words and terms to ignite the hatred, fear and ignorance in others. he isn’t worth the air it takes to keep his body functioning.

    Yes he is most certainly allowed his opinion and I’m grateful he gets to spew it…the more he spews the more aware people…both here and abroad become of the true face of this GOP.

    Also…don’t forget Transformers 2 is coming out. You will be seeing more of him.

    He’ll be here in a couple of days for CineVegas isn’t he lucky Vegas is a republican strong hold.

    Jon Voight is a has-been who’s daughter outshines him any day of the week. No wonder Angelina doesn’t talk to that old cheat.

    Get Lost Obama won Get over it…

  • http://www.yahoo.com OH YEAH

    @Vanessa: go change the air in your head

  • Galactico

    I absolutely agree with you Jon! The United States enemies are happy with Barack. Let’s impeach Hussein!!!

  • mertz

    oh now obama is ignorant is he. lol. even more so than bush huh? or the typical american huh? and also he’s oh so soft. wowzers. once again these things come from easily anything i can pull from the air. it is not substantiated…because when people make those comments they are making it in comparison to something. so please tell us WHY obama is so soft and WHY he is making your country less safe or weaker and tell us TO WHOM/TO WHICH GOVERNEMENT PRIOR you are comparing him/his current administration with…and then we will know where you are coming from and we will be able to know your bias…not like most people commenting haven’t figured it out already. you know what’s ignorant, people like ahmedinajad et al saying that israel needs to be wiped out from the earth…even arabs think of israel as zionist, so that part is entirely debatable under religion, and israel denying that what they are doing in jerusalem and their occupation of the west bank or gaza is wrong and denying the palestinians what they want, which is a seperation from israeli rule. i guess israel subscribes to keep the enemy you know closest even if they seek to unseat you. that’s ignorant. they don’t seek open dialogue or compramise…and the people are sick of it, just like the rest of us are sick of it. so talk about that voight. address the issues instead of preaching your a$$y comments to those who will swallow the bull hook, line, and sinker.

  • Silly

    As if we needed further proof of how dilusional John Voight is & the right wing part of the Repulican party. George Bush jr is what caused the USA to LOSE it’s positiion as worldleader and he made the US hated throughout the world, not just in Arabic countries. The US should be proud of Obama Barack, contrary to George Bush jr he tries to think about the WORLD instead of only his rich oilfriends and family.

    well lets see,since he took office 7million ppl lost their jobs,we borrowed more money from China than in our history. We have the highest unemployment in 26 yrs. We’ve got more ppl homeless & that have been foreclosed on than ever; & this American Pres. goes over to Egypt to try to make peace W the very ppl who were responsable for 9/11! During his speach he apologized for the war n Iraq & Aghanistan!! Now that’s bound to give our soldiers moral support. He says that we are a nation of Muslims-lier. We were founde on the foundation of Christianity .

  • bailey

    jon voight scares me.

  • Lillianne

    that’s the kind of hyperbole that makes people never take you seriously. Any high school debater could take him down.

  • KAy

    Could someone just make him shut UP?!

    I’m no American but even I can see the good Obama has made in the world already. One of the example i could give is that he has given back America the good image it had before the Bush administration. And when you’re wants to take care of other countries’ problem, it is essential to have a good image.
    And for those who thinks that Obama’s supporters did not think about the consequences of his decision, well i would like to say “think twice guys”…..
    What Jon Voight ask for is only a rude, overprotectionist president, ready to bite like a pitbull whenever he can…..

    Obama is no Messiah or God, he’s just a good president!

    no. the over the top comments are coming from voight and people from all sides of the aisle. some more tempered than others, but then again some of us don’t have the pulpit of limbaugh, cheney, and fox news to impart our opinions onto others. the day i admit obama to be my prophet is the day i go to hell, just like the day i admit bush to be my prophet or my god is the day i go to hell. i can’t believe these comments are being made at all. anyone who knows anything about religion knows how sacralidgeous that is. are you freakin kidding me. fn pisses me off. so what. people voted for obama on mass and he has mass popularity because PEOPLE HATE GEORGE BUSH AND AS A BY PRODUCT AMERICA. what about that don’t you understand. that bush hatred spans not only from bush jr but to his father as well. the democrats have not had clean hands and neither have the republicans. if you only say that internationally people only hate america because of bush then that is disingenous…but instead of making the problem better, or trying to improve americas reputation internationally, he helped in it’s deterioration…and maybe obama will continue in the bush path and help that along, but we won’t know yet because it will also take him 8 years before there is an absolute determination (although determinations will be made after his 2nd year)…but we won’t know yet. so yeah give it time. just like when bush was in power he got the green card to go ahead. fair is fair. it’s nice to be critical in hindsight to hold people responsible but that was severly lacking with the bush jr admin…so am i to believe that people have finally waken up to politics and politricks…so much so that they are making judgements about the current admin based on stuff you pull out of your a$$. i ihope not. i mean he’s a racist and all this etc…it’s f’n ridiculous and half the time i can’t believe how these f’rs in the media have jobs. they think they can say whatever they want and not be held accountable. no wonder journalism has gone to the crapper. even people who have been in journalism for more than 40 years are saying crap about the way it’s being churned out. please. don’t assume us all to be stupid, because we have eyes and ears and we see what’s going on and some of us are willing to do the legwork to find out actual factual truths. dumbness is a disease. don’t subscribe to it and don’t be happy living in a coloured goggles generation. question everything and don’t allow yourself to be forcefed bullsh*t.

The GOP is a disgrace! they are the political whores of washington!! more-so than the democrap! both parties are a disgrace to this country! George Bush Jr has no right to call himself a republican! he is a R.I.N.O republican in name only!
    4 years from now we are going to see what a big mistake it was to put Nobama into office. when he fails (and he will) i blame all you obamites that chant “yes we can yes we can”

    Obama didn’t cause the problems that we have now. American business’ lack of supervision and dishonesty caused it. The American consumer who wants everything NOW without saving before buying, and buying more than they can afford. Obama didn’t cause that mentality Andl until the American people again begin to live within their own personal means, it will continue until there is nothing left of this nation that was founded on sacrafice and hard work. Your parents and grandparents probably didn’t borrow more than they made in a year. They knew they had to live within their own BUDGET. Strange word to lots of folks who don’t know what one is.

    Where was his criticism when Bush was leading us into a war with lies and destroyed this country financially. Bush and the republicans were in power when the banking, financial and car industry collasped. If he had spoken out then , he would have been more credible. Obama now has the job of cleaning up after this mess.

    image is everything in the world no. it’s what people recognize the most predominately over words or speech. it can be created, strengthened, and ultimately broken, but image is kind of fickle. action is a better barometer to make judgements upon.

    uh huh. you only have problems borrowing from china now huh? you have problems from borrowing from china when your country needs help…when single handedly one of the worst disasters ever to face a modern civilization to cripple not only the center of the financial industry and therfore impacting economies, but also the finaces and economy of EVERY OTHER COUNTRY IN THE WORLD happens. me i was hoping bush was stupid enough to not buy the paulsen plan. i really really really really wanted such a deflation that would not only cripple america but every other country in the world. it’s about time the dollar became worth what it’s really worth in the eyes of those outside the united states with your creation of the biggest sham/shadow economy ever, and encouragement of bad practices, and china would have came out ahead anyways. this whole stimulas may save face for americans so that although things suck now, they aren’t that much worse, but it really is just slowing down the inevitable with other countries stepping up in the foray to the front to truly become internationally recognized powerhouses. so yeah. like rush freakin limbaugh i was hoping obama would fail (bush already failed) and as a byproduct america to fail and osama to win no? treason much. but of course i can only say that kind of sh*t if i am republican and that makes it much more acceptable than if a democrat said that same thing. okay so the highest unemplyment rate in decades huh, lol, and of course it is ALL obama’s fault. it may say so on his record or when the people who document history write this down. you can’t dispute that statistic. it’s a fact. just like it is also a fact that IT IS NOT ALL OBAMA’S FAULT AND THEREFORE DOESN’T ALL FALL AT THE FEET OF ONE PERSON. just like it wasn’t all bush’s fault, just like it wasn’t all clinton’s fault, just like it wasn’t all bush snr’s fault, it will not all be obama’s fault either. those historians who record the truth will record that it is a collection of converging matters that started a long time ago and it is not either the repubs or the dems it is conclusively ALL their faults. some more than others, but really, look it up because it’s there. anyone following the market 10 years ago could have predicted this because bubbles are cyclical, and anyone looking at the market 5 years to even 2 years ago knew this was happening. greed is such a beautiful thing, just like hypocrisy. your conclusion that egypt is responsible for 9/11 is laughable. if you don’t understand why he went to cairo then you basically shouldn’t be arguing about things you don’t know. even i was conflicted by egypt as his choice (my opinion) but i understand why he went there. why shouldn’t he be apologizing. i never knew apologizing inherently made you weak. i hope you read the bible. being able to recognize when mistakes are made and being humble is held in quite high regard in accordance to the bible..so i don’t see the great sin with his apologies. oh the big bad united states is afraid of losing face. america loses face ALL THE TIME…it’s just that because some of those people who you get involved with don’t speak english or may not have the power to express themselves, but that game is all changing. you don’t understand because you don’t see it from the other side. yes the troops need support, and even though canadians do not support the war, they support their troops ultimately, but canadians are not stupid enough to see this war for something it’s not, and nor are they unaware that with their ultimate participation in this they have made themselves a prime target. this war was started in bad judgement and i hope it doesn’t end in bad judgement. talk about blessing us with the 8 years of george bush. dude. if it didn’t happen with bush, it would have happened with clinton (good that it didn’t) or whoever had succeeded clinton. osama was coming for america way before and it was just the time. he’s not a stupid dude and neither are his followers.

  • dan

    @dntvotehimn: wow, you really are watching the faux-news brigade a lil’ to much there aren’t you, cos they got you properly believing the BS they peddle as fact, come on obama’s responsible for all of thos things…..bail-outs, high unemployment, large federal deficit, tanking dollar, wasteful government programmes, high spending military actions, increasing hatred from the islamic/european/latin american/everywhere world, big government-involved in all aspects of the citiens life……these were all the result of a conservative, republican leader…..for god’s sake it was only a few months ago they can’t have brinwashed you to forget something you’ve lived/living through surely……wake the f**k up.

  • robin3

    It was Clinton’s economic advisers, Robt. Rubin, Larry Summers et.al who were the architects of the financial debacle. How? They put on the pressure for Congress to repeal the Glass-Steagall Act. That act was put in place to prevent what happened in the 1930s Great Depression.

    Larry Summers is back!

    Obama appointed him as one of his key economic advisers. Something stinks!
