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.”

    You are the one who is stupid and obviously don’t know what is going on around you. DAMN! Open your eyes before its too late. WE NEED ISRAEL and they need us. Obama threw them under the bus and know there will be a serious payment for that. You better sit down and study your history missy. Jon Voight is Catholic as I am. Many of us know the truth about Obama and what this man is about to do to this country.
    a catholic calling someone stupid. now where have i seen that so many times before. i didn’t want to wave the religious flag although i did bring it up previously for someone to go and read the bible because making apologies, being able to realize mistakes is not a sin in the bible. anyways so here it is chica. I’M CATHOLIC TOO. but as a hypocritical catholic, because i know where my religion comes from and i know the hypocrits who recognize/attach themselves to this religion, i realize that i am not better, nor are my judgements any better than others. so yeah you take your catholicism and realise how hypocritical you are with your statement. obama didn’t throw israel under the bus. certainly many israeli’s (including the muslim israeli’s. lol. i wonder how muslim israel’s can live as secondary citizens to jewish people in israel and yet they don’t allow palestinians even the basic decorum of stable living) may think that and so do pro-israel supporters…but the point is is that you don’t realize or recognize the other just like you give isreal a fair shake but you don’t for the other side. AND YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE A CHRISTIAN? huh. what does the bible say about love thy enemies huh and love the other like your borther or sister. i don’t know from what bibles people read from, but it’s entirely hilarious/sadistic to see what religion does to people. religion is not inherently evil, nor is it inherently good. it should be a work in progress (in a perfect world) but must people just cling to their golden books like it’s the end all be all. whatever. you are no different from those you fail to recognize. israel needs to move on. yes they are america’s main allies in the east and have a large military resource…but they way america kowtows to israel or to the jewish lobbying makes america and american’s look like their b*tch, and that’s the truth. i can’t believe that america allows israel to read classified documents from your intelligence agencies, because ya’ll are like a married couple/best friends etc…it’s an entirely amusing situation. maybe if people could let go of past histories we all in the world can collectively move on. let’s admit horrible things have happened in the world and try to right wrongs and move on. WHY IS THAT SO HARD TO DO? so much so that people become pure wussies when confronted with hard issues. gah.

  • joshua

    voight should know that before obama came to office, the american economy, image (especially international) and domestic infrastructure were already down from the bush administration, and that’s a BIG mess to clean up for anyone!! i am european and from international point of view, the time of bush administration was not at all that glory for international affairs…so voight should shut up if he does not have sensical things to say..he should just try first to clean up his own family affairs before going political which is beyond his intelligence.

  • lauren

    Obamas the next hitler…

  • kiddo

    someone please tell me why someone gets so much hate for giving a speech without a teleprompter?

    GOOD ONE. Come on, you all have to laugh at it, Obama does. He even jokingly said he would teach Joe Biden-the gaffe master to use one. although he didnt call him the gaffe master. Thats mine!

  • emily

    My point is everyone has a right to their opinion and that goes for Voight . However when he refused to say anything about the lies and misleading of Bush/Cheney when they were busy destroying this country, it makes him a hypocrite. I would have had more respect for him if he had spoke up then.

  • mertz

    people throw their words around without consequences because they can. it’s sad that this is the current state we are in actually and as someone who sucks at spelling (am working on it), as well as making sense, i weep for the english language and language in general every day because every day the gap between people, the gap between people’s abilities to understand seems to grow. i encourage change, and i encourage learning, intelligence, technology etc…but i don’t encourage all that stuff without responsiblity or being able to recxognize history and improve upon it. i don’t get people. why are we all so freakin stuck.

  • jEFF

    Jon’s right on the money! If Obama continues on this path, America will fail! If you doubt it, WAIT and SEE, this country will fail within a decade. Obama is the most inexperienced person that has been elected to the Presidency. Change, yeah, right; we haven’t even seen the beginning of the change to come. Hard to believe that the American public were dumb enough to vote in this FOOL!!!

  • mertz

    and to clearify my reference to gretchen peters on the daily show…i don’t subscribe to the daily show or all these people’s and their opinions, but i knew who she was prior to the interview and she’s not the only one to talk about the ieds/the weapons these people get from the drug trade. money talks huge everywhere in the world and the fact that people are asleep everywhere on why these things are happening is kinda disconcerning. i think the generals have also written many reports on the collusion with the governments in that area, the militaries, the intellegence and the terrorists in that area. you have to try and understand why these guys are doing what they are. you have to try and understand it because then you can work on capable solutions instead of always doging the problem(s). thing will never change either way (pessimism speaking).

  • Sally

    I was open to Obama, but thus far I think he is a disaster. The media and celebrities got him elected. Mitt Romney would have been a the best choice to handle the economy. I also think Obama is passive and wants to be everyone’s best friend. He is naive.

  • kiddo

    Bet the republicans come out in full force on Senate elections. They are already starting the ground campaign.

    Gonna be a war of the politicians. I cant wait. Most are self rightoues egotist with seperate agenda’s.

    Either way, I truly like Michele O’s style and love the fact children are in the White house.

    hindsight is 20/20 no. everyone is saying why not then, why now, and people are saying that same thing in the vice versa, while at the time people were saying why aren’t they reporting about this this and this, and now i guess the media can report all they want. hypocrisy is a beautiful thing. it’s amazing when people (myself included cause i know myself best) don’t realize the hypocrisy in which they engage in. lol. yeah catholics. let’s bring that argument in cause we’re probably the biggest hypocrites of them all.

  • Tim

    You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.

    You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.

    You cannot help the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.

    You cannot further the brotherhood of man by encouraging class hatred.

    You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.

    You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn.

    You cannot build character and courage by taking away man’s initiative and independence.

    You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.

    This was written by Abraham Lincoln. Obama, who likes to compare himself to President Lincoln, apparently cannot read.

  • Chloe

    Jon kinda went over the top there. I used to be an Obama supporter until this “bailout” crap. Any business that assumed we will keep investing and buying was stupid–not our fault and they shouldn’t have gotten money for it.

    Congressional Budget Office projected that for the first time in three decades, there would be no cost-of-living adjustment —- or COLA —- for Social Security recipients in 2010, 2011 and 2012.

    These adjustments are designed to keep elderly Social Security recipients from losing purchasing power as prices rise, so it’s not surprising that the initial reaction was one of concern.

    “The absence of a cost-of-living adjustment … will be a shock to older Americans already hit by plummeting home values, investment losses and rising health costs,” The New York Times wrote earlier this month.

    Senior groups were predictably up in arms. An AARP spokesman moaned that “most seniors have never been through a year in which there was no Social Security COLA.”

    Some liberal bloggers accused the Obama administration of betraying seniors. And there’s already talk of legislation to address this perceived inequity.

    atleast i recognize that i have a self righteous ass. i hope you feel good being all knowing about what you know on the muslim world. why would you presume me to not know anything about the muslim world. you don’t know me personaly, so where is that judgement coming from. where in that comment you quoted did i say something about the so called muslim world. painting muslims an arabs with the same one dimensional brush is disingenous…just like i could also say that based on the history of america all americans are savages or racists. it’s not true. so don’t put words in my mouth. i hope you also enjoy pulling your self righteous judgemental head out of your a$$. bin laden didn’t do what he did without reason. the taliban and alqueda do not act without reason and neither do all the militant factions around the world wether it’s hezzbolah, ira, ltte, hamas, farq, janjawid, al shabab, etc…and painting them all as one dimentional militias is also disingenuous. not all in the muslim or arab world are terrorist. if you think the muslim or arab world only includes the middle east, then that’s laughable. i mean last week the pakistani ambassador to the us was saying he and others take great offense to being included in the axis of evil description or people presuming that because they are recognizably a muslim country, that they are immediately included in the mid east conflict or seen as arabs. pakistan is not an arab country. he said that is what some americans and the western world don’t know or can’t seperate the facts, that the muslim world is not all in the middle east and that pakistan is a south asian muslim country. there are many muslim countries in the world that don’t cause the us problems…so what are they all to be included in the war on the muslim world or the war in the middle east. also…lol. not all muslims are arabs & vice versa. not all people who follow islam are terrorists. there are arab jews, arab christians, arab muslims, etc…and there are many arabic people living around the world…they aren’t all terrorists. israeli’s speak like they are the only people to have ever faced persecution ever…when infact there are many people, many races, many cultures, many ethnic people’s who have faced persecution all around the world. anyways something needs to change, because this bullsh*t has been going on for way too long.

  • Christina

    Republicans are nothing but a bunch of kooky old white guys! They’re trying to scare everyone into voting for them. They can’t win any other way. I swear they have called Obama everything under the sun. It’s despicable and they continue to stoop to new lows. When will they get a clue and go f*ck themselves?

  • pam

    @Christina: you must be getting a free ride. pitiful

  • heaherFill

    Jon Voigh is a freak! How could he deem Barack Obama as a false prophet? He is a sicko! Wanting to destroy our president. Who knows what things he believes. He claims everything Obama has recommended has turned out to be disastrous. That is wrong. Our nation became weaker because of George W. Bush and all the crap he got away with. Of course Voight didn’t give a damn about his daughter, and she practically turned out as freaky as he is. For shame!

  • mertz

    lol @223 & 224. great examples of exactly what we are dealing with. it’s great when you can live in a world of generalizations. don’t worry i do it too sometimes.

  • baly

    Yeah, I agree with him. Let us see if the terrorists will negotiate with Obama. Encourage the terrorists to be guests on Oprah Winfrey show. They might cooperate!

  • mertz

    to make everyone happier just subscribe to the whole you’re right i’m wrong mentality. it helps. thanks for the story jared. right after i saw this on the website i heard the clip on my local news radio.

    have fun arguing everyone. discourse is fun!

    He is just mad because he can’t see his grandkids , get a life and go back to being a street worker cowboy

    It makes so much sense why Angelina would distance herself from him. He’s an old cook. Crazy and deranged man.

  • Felicia

    Obama can’t be any worse than that disaster of a prez we had for the last 8 years…Oh, but you probably don’t know about that because you were in an alcohol-induced blackout.

  • Hey Jon voight

    Hey Jon Voight – nice try for someone with some pretty SCARY stuff in his closet.

    Isn’t this the same guy who cheated on his wife, caused a miscarriage while bringing women over into her house on socalled parental visits, then left the same kids as a toddlers in order to pursue his interests( anything but raising the kids), a KNOWN CULT FOLLOWER, dead beat though he was earning $$$ after winning that oscar, left the stay at home mother to raise the kids WITHOUT PALIMONY and in DEBT til after her death…..had the gall to bash the mother of his kids AFTER HER DEATH, once a upon a time, couldn’t for the love his life remember Zahara’s name( says Shakira but of course he remembered to cry crocodile tears for all those who would listen about his desire to see those little angels(Shiloh, Vivian and Knox)…. suddenly is telling me that OBAMA is BAD for the contry.

    I say, at least Obama AINT got the following on his resume:

    1.) Revolving door dad
    2.) dead beat
    3.) emotional abuser
    4.) absent father

    Listen folks, it is one thing to have an opinion but another to HAVE such as SCARY closet and feel the need to judge others.

  • emily

    Republicans believe in do- as- I -say and not- as- I -do philosophy. Kind of like Palin’s daughter now preaching abstinence after being a regular fuucck-buddy with her boyfriend. I like abstinence too but I would rather hear from someone who practices what they preach. Lest I forget , remember toe-tapping senator Craig (Republican) involved in that mens bathroom saga?

  • blkbandit


    thank you. people need to stop giving obama a pass cause he is black.

  • candy

    Becky- you are catholic? Ugh…that explains it. Why does belonging to a religious group or cult means anything? lol

    Closed minded….too. very

    probably a red neck republican as well…as other things I can’t type here…and you know it!

    YOU need to wake up and smell the real world. (before George Bush almost ruined it). Obama has a real mess to clean up and it’s gonna take some time of course.

    Go back to your cave and stay there!

  • Sharon

    Everybody has the right to voice out their opinion whether it is good or bad..this is a free country…

    Obama’s supporters really believe he is the one who is going to save America and possibly the whole world….but the sad truth is that, economy is getting worst!

    Sales Tax in California even went high at the time when almost majority of Californians are losing their employment, houses, etc…

  • Hey Jon voight

    to Sharon – no here is saying he has NO RIGHT TO VOICE HIS OPINION….

    some of us just think he is NOT WORTH AN OPINION given his background.

    Hey, there is a saying that – you can judge a man only if you are squirky clean…but seeing the background of Jon Voight…plez…Jon is the last person to say something about Obama.

    To be a dead beat and spousal abuser(mentally and whatsnot) are usually GOOD INDICATORS of a kind of man you are dealing – in the case of Jon Voight, the writing is on the wall and it says – WATCH OUT GUYS, this guy is pretty cuckoo upstairs.

  • Mandy

    Whenever I begin to feel compassion that his daughter has not permitted him to have a relationship with either she or the children, he interviews with a rag and spews garbage out of his mouth regarding President Obama. He’s just another “loose cannon” extreme conservative Republican, and I now get why Angelina has nothing to do with him. David Carradine was an eccentric Republican, too.

  • emily

    To Sharon: It took George Bush 8 years to destroy the economy so Obama cannot fix it in less than 100 days that he has been there. It will take time. Hopefully its sooner than later.

  • pam

    @emily: know what emily? i’d rather have YOU as president…than obama.

  • TJ

    Oh, you think VOIGHT’s the nutter? Well, I hope I’m within ear range when your gasoline’s $10 a gallon, the economy is in ruins, China owns what’s left of our companies, and you’re standing in a soup line, so you can hear me say:

    Told ya.

  • emily

    @Pam: No thanks, I just like calling it as I see it.

  • pam

    @TJ: ditto.

  • pam

    @emily: read tj’s entry

  • emily

    TJ: Bush was borrowing money from China and printing money long before Obama came in on the scene. He had to pay for his war , so obviously he was doing this. Remember $5/gallon gasoline? That was under Bush. He did nothing to reign in the cost when he was president in order to further enrich his cronies . That’s part of the reason why republicans lost because the gas cost was bankrupting a lot of people and nothing was done to stop it. It seemed like republicans didn’t care.

  • hottest couple ever

    Jon Voight is a fcuking idiot…no wonder Angie is estranged from him.

  • lakers fan in boston

    hmmm i dont completely agree
    but yes i agree he’s a false prophet
    ppl believe that he will be another fdr or some great president, sorry so far as president he’s been sub-par
    im glad he won and all because i didnt want palin and mccain 2 win
    but ppl r giving obama 2 many breaks, it’s time 2 start making some tough decisions like u said
    i love the fact of how he thinks the whole world can get along with his soft voice like jon says, ive given obama the benefit of the doubt because of the economy, but still his stimulus package has yet 2 be used in full force
    i also agree with republicans that alot of whats in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is just wasteful spending
