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.”

    Don’t you have a brain? The economy is the way it is thanks to George Bush! Now, Obama has to try to clean up the big mess left for him.

    I would not want to be in his shoes.

    Someone should put super glue in Voight’s big stupid jerk mouth

    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?


    It’s even better coming from someone who has learned a lesson. She’s been there, made the mistake. She will definitely practice what she preaches now.

  • jaye

    The man’s a nut, but I knew that. He wasn’t worried about the Bush gang destroying the economy or the country or the world. Hell, he’s rich, what has he got to worry about if the economy tanks, he’s hiding his money in his bunker. Obama has been in office 6 months and it’s Obama Oppression? lmao. Jon needs to stop drinking.

  • emily

    It will not be credible to me. That’s my opinion.

  • cosi

    can see why AJ stays the hella away from this turd

  • emily

    jaye, you are right on the mark. These nutjobs are so crazy that I even heard one of them say that Obama started this 3 years ago when he wasn’t even running.
    I voted for Bush the first time but having seeing him invade Iraq and destroyed this country and seeing the crazy people flock to the republican party made me change my mind . I was a center right person, but I cannot be associated with a party of nutjobs. I don’t do crazy.

  • ann

    the people that voted for Obama is crazy people need to realize he’s doing a lot of things wrong it’s happening now!! Open your eyes. I’m so proud someone spoke about Obama of what things he’s doing wrong. Jon is right!! I’m beside you Jon.

  • mertz

    experience is important, but being a hypocrite doesn’t therby allow you to have a platform to speak on and to have people listen to you. that is why people laugh at bristol palin. it would have been better if she had practised what she preached prior to her getting pregnant.

    obama being soft is a misnomer. your gas will not go up to 10 dollars, and that price has nothing to do with obama. it has everything to opec countries playing the market and setting the terms for the amount of oil output and the reserve oil stocks that they choose to disregard because they want to be stingy. good for them. it also has everything to do with the dollar and how it’s going to loose ground to other currencies because of the inflation due to the many stimulas’ and overspending that has been going on with multiple governments. but then you’re going to blame obama soley for the inflation too. w/e.

    credit is going to losen up and start to flow again…unless the mothers at wall street or in the financial sector start messing around again. the recession will be over, and life will still suck, but it really is much better than a 100% collapse.

    anyone who calls obama their messiah is not smart. he can’t write 8 years all by himself nor can he due it in the time so far that he has been in the office. puh freakin lease. give it a while before you start the bashing and the hyperbole.

  • ellie’

    @Jolie Hot Chin not:
    That’s what Angie says. Only Jon and Marcheline knows what happened. I also don’t believe in telling your children private things during there marriage to hate the other parent. It happens all the time who’s the bad one. So lets not be so quick to judge Jon about being a father. A scorned woman is the worst..

    Jon has a right to his own opinion , but I also agree its still a little to soon. I didn’t vote for Obama but I’m willing to give him chance and to soon t give my own opinion also.

  • ed

    Keep it up, Republicans – keep bringing out the loonies and let them speak!! Dems will be in power for the next 4, 8, 12 years for sure!! Luckily for Angelina, he was an absent father and didn’t influence her politically or otherwise!

  • LuckyL

    Hahahahahaha, this dumb***.

    The Republican Party is so divided.

    ed, I so agree.

    Ali @ 06/09/2009 at 1:03 pm
    Well said. Ali.
    No wonder Angelina wants to keep a safe distance from Jon Voight. First he was a father who abandoned his children. Then he was a deadbeat husband and dad who didn’t pay spousal support. Then when he shows up to be with his kids he was – to quote James haven, abusive.
    Now we can see how he abused his wife and children.
    Imagine JON Voight turning on his children and criticising them with the same lack of balance as he is now criticising Obama then make it at least twice as bad. Because those were his children and he was speaking to them in private and very likely swearing and using a threatening angry tone of voice. Imagine an Alex Baldwin.
    No wonder Angelina and James both want to keep their distance from him. They should. And very wisely, as they let him back into their lives, its only from a distance. And no way should he ever baby sit any of the kids on his own. NO WAY.

  • emily

    Angelina has nothing to do with his comments. Unfortunately we can’t choose our parents especially when they are bad ones.

    this obama is a radicalist muslim who hates america and will destroy

    oh but im sure its okay to criticize bush, im sick of these double standards

  • Chelsea lately rules!

    this guy is retarded, no wonder angelina wants nothing to do with him. obama is probably the best president we’ve had since Reagan, a good family man, and a good politician. It’s republicans like this idiot and rush limbaugh that make the republicna party look like a bunch of morons. I just feel bad for the moderate republicans like colin powell and john mccain who are actually somewhat intelligent. And any one who believes that obama is a prophet/messiah is a fricken nutjob and a loser.

  • teri

    I don’t agree with everything he stands for but I do agree with John on this. He has balls enough to stand up for what he believes in and you don’t really see that anymore just alot of followers. Freedom of speech is for everyone including him.

  • emily

  • emily

    Where was John’s freedom of speech when Bush was ruining the economy?

  • april

    thank you, Ali – a voice of reason…
    look at the kind of critical thinking “pam” is capable of demonstrating – set aside her poor grammar “evidentley your related…” but it does show ignorance at a basic level, and her argument that you can only be able to discern the qualities of our president if you are related to him. But she is not nearly as flaccid in thinking as the illiterate “can’t forget 9/11″.

    If there were only some clear reasoning skills – some example of a valid argument that is based in facts. I don’t know these two people, but in general those kinds of comments, especially Jon’s, reflect xenophobia if you just scratch beneath the service. “false prohpet”?? Jon is starkers.

    and there it is again with the throwing of words and debasing the english language.

    WHERE IS THE EVIDENCE ON BARACK OBAMA BEING A RADICAL MUSLIM. do you know what RADICAL means. so yeah i want your evidence.

    and you’re sick of double standards. you’re sick of it after the fact right…well where the hell were you when bush and his administration were in power. i wonder what you were saying then at that time as well. it is okay to criticize. criticism makes the world go around, it’s easy to do, it’s cheap and inconsequential to the critic and when it’s made in the right it can hold people accountable. were you holding your former president accountable when he was in power. i hope you were.

  • Sharon

    Not only is obama a false prophet but he is an idiot. This thug lies, and plays those who have drunk the kool aid as fools. He can lie stating this will be the most open administration. When? He is arrogant and stupid. He is way over his head and it is America and our children and grandchildren who will pay for this idiot. He is nothing more than a low class low life thug who has set his sights on putting the citizens in this country as dependent upon him as possible. Keep us in line. Well up his arrogant wazoo.

  • toks

    The fact that you use the word colored tells me how ignorant you are. No one is asking that you agree with the politics of the current president but personal attacks are unacceptable and don’t solve any problems. Maybe if the republicans came up with other options, people will listen rather then them sounding like bitter losers

  • mertz

    hey sharon since this is an equal oppertunity forum i hope you are calling dubya a thug as well as rush limbaugh. then that would be fair.

    and that entire part about our children and grandchildren paying in the future…i think that sounds familiar why because i’m been saying that since 91…and probably every single day of the bush administration and some during clinton too. so you know what it’s not only obama. maybe you should take some of your hatred and place it into somthing positive. thanks in advance.

    and know that this drinking of the kool aid you accuse others of, i’m sure a lot of republicans were drinking it straight from the trough when bush was in power. lol. bill bennett saying i like the man but not his policies. i hope you were saying that bill bennet when your president from your party was in power at the time he was in power. it’s nice to say that all after the fact. and let’s not forget bay buchannen. it kills her to admit how much damage bush has done to her beloved party. lol. maybe ya’ll do everyone a favour and turn a blind to obama like how you did bush and we will all reconvene for the bashing after his term is over.

  • denise

    this is a glimpse into how fox news and the republicans are feeding lies and garbage to simple, small town folks and greedy corporate execs. i have no idea what this party stands for – they put pretty-faced surface level small town rhetoric folksie Palin as the frontrunner for 2012 and put Bush – who STARTED the bailouts with the banks and no republican said anything then – into leadership. It’s odd and they’re in a world of their own – this is from a FORMER republican who saw the light after this last election. Obama is a great man and this country with idiots like Jon Voight is a pain to lead. My prayers and support are with Obama.

  • lukebandit

    way to go JON! OBAMA, is he a Christian??? and the first thing he does when he gets into office is reverse the international abortion funding bill. how can you be a Christian on one hand and your fine with babies being murdered in the mother’s womb?
    I knew you before you were in your mother’s womb. in Jeremiah in the King James Bible.

  • Erman

    O.M.G.. I’m not an American and I can’t believe there are still people like him. His speech is so arrogant thinking America is better than anybody else, thinking that this world is belong to them. Remember this. We share the world people. It doesn’t belong to anybody or any country. We don’t appoint you as a liberator of the world, so stop acting like one and what year are you coming from? 1620?? conquering the world? He makes me laugh.

    And please..Israel is not a part of America. Is halfway across the globe. Did he go to school??

  • toks

    Being a christian is a personal choice and has nothing to do with the abortion bill. there is a reason why there is a separation of church and state. If you lived in a muslim country with a muslim president, i bet you wouldn’t want to be forced to wear a hijab because of the president’s religion. Pls think before you speak…you can’t force your personal belief onto others. Jesus Christ gave a choice to follow him and did not force us to follow him.

  • emily

    To those who are criticizing him about abortion . If someone broke into my house and raped me there is no way I’m going to have that child. Let someone rape you or your child and see if you want to have the child then.

  • mertz

    @lukebandit. christians are the worst hypocrites because they don’t see their hypocrisy and don’t allow others to make decisions for themselves. you don’t have to force everyone who is not a christian to be just like you. religion does this to people. i mean look at that guy who killed the abortionist doctor recently and you have all kinds of christians, religious people, non religious people supporting that kind of sh*t. god is the ultimate judge, and you are not the one to judge others. you also don’t claim to be christian and then murder others or involve yourself with fornicating before being in a union, living blissfully with lies, believing in false idols, etc… lol.

  • emily

    This is kind of extreme is what you see on right-wing propaganda stations like fox news and radio stations. This fanning the flames of hate caused people like that person to murder that Dr. Whether one agrees with this Dr. or not , he was doing something legal.

  • mertz

    i don’t get why people don’t understand the seperation between church and state…probably because the religious people involve themselves in government matters, and governments involve themselves in things people only think of in terms of religion, not failing to realize that religion doesn’t govern everything.

    just so you know for all your opinions about obama, george bush is going to be in hell right along with me, cheney, clinton, bush senior, republicans, democrats, people of all parties. well have a big gyamboree dance around the fires of hell.

    the only innocents are children…but then they grow up and they learn the ways of the world and we all end up the same even though we think we’re so different from each other.

  • mertz

    right, wrong, who cares. stop being ruled so much by emotions and actually see things for what it is. question everything is the first rule of becoming a teenager. think objectively. just like i’ve questioned every politician so far in my life i will question the politicians of the 2000′s. it’s a real good time to be an observer in the world. don’t worry about the bashing cause i am signed up and will be first in line. just like all the haters, i’m taking note too. it doesn’t mean i’m a non supporter or a supporter. i hope barack obama is held accountable…and i don’t think i will care if the light is on him/the scrutiny is on him much more than bush. he’s an adult. he should be able to take the heat. fair is fair game and just like bush deserves everything he gets so will obama. it will happen and only history will be able to tell who was better than the other…which i could really care less about.

    lets get back to jon voight and his hyperbole and his crazy talk. i can’t believe he compared obama to julius ceasor. why don’t people think before they talk. if obama is soft spoken does that mean bush was yelling all his speeches???? did i miss something??? or are they talking about the rhetoric…cause like we said before talk is talk. words are pretty and all, and kind of cheap. actions speak louder than words, but by no means are words completely powerless. i mean david frum. talk about a guy who is liberal with his use of the english word. axis of evil eh? disingenous much? even his reasoning behind that term on the surface looks like it works out but his use of the word axis is flawed. but what would i know…aparently i don’t have a brain.

    you stold the words out of my mouth, soo right..

  • Hey Jon voight

    not say this is always the case but really, why are some of you supporting this guy –

    the guy is a deadbeat and left his ex with 2 kids under 2 so that he can pursue his interest – women and women and women.

    Let me tell you something, if Jon could not raise his kids what make yo think he can run this country let alone do a FAB job better than Obama.

    We are talking about a guy who chickened out on parenthood. LOL.

    And this the guy that you republicans supports are coming out to support on this thread.

    A guy who chickened out on his adult resposibilities is YOUR ROLE MODEL of a YES MAN…

    give me a break.

    I would rather come on here a support a man who had BALLS and was MAN enough to support his kids…divorce or not…rather than one who is a chicken.

  • Hey Jon voight

    Like said – Obama has BALLS. Jon Voight…prunes man. prunes.

  • marieney

    that doesn’t sound so different from what obama has said. i admire voight for speaking out against him. obama’s policies seem good now, but there will be little resolution in the longrun.

  • republican is ….

    what a nonsense talk coming from the most narrow minded american…..Dumb, stupid and hollow this guys is…..I cant believe myself I used to like him as an actor??!!!

    I read about a woman who was raped, got pregnant, hates her rapist, but chose to give birth because, she said, the baby is innocent.
    So, it varies with the individual, but I guess many women would agree with you.
