Jon Voight Blasts Barack Obama -- Again!

Jon Voight Blasts Barack Obama -- Again!

Jon Voight is putting President Barack Obama on blast once again. Here’s the latest open letter from the 71-year-old actor via Washington Times:

“You will be the first American president that lied to the Jewish people, and the American people as well, when you said that you would defend Israel, the only Democratic state in the Middle East, against all their enemies. You have done just the opposite. You have propagandized Israel, until they look like they are everyone’s enemy — and it has resonated throughout the world. You are putting Israel in harm’s way, and you have promoted anti-Semitism throughout the world.

“You have brought this to a people who have given the world the Ten Commandments and most laws we live by today. The Jewish people have given the world our greatest scientists and philosophers, and the cures for many diseases, and now you play a very dangerous game so you can look like a true martyr to what you see and say are the underdogs. But the underdogs you defend are murderers and criminals who want Israel eradicated.

“You have brought to Arizona a civil war, once again defending the criminals and illegals, creating a meltdown for good, loyal, law-abiding citizens. Your destruction of this country may never be remedied, and we may never recover. I pray to God you stop, and I hope the people in this great country realize your agenda is not for the betterment of mankind, but for the betterment of your politics.

“With heartfelt and deep concern for America and Israel, Jon Voight.”

Last June, Jon called Barack a false prophet.

    Good. Obama has no clue what he is doing. People need to wake up and see what this man is really doing to this country and world. He is making a huge mess and mockery of America

  • So Judgemental

    Oh Jon please go back on your meds. That will save your daughter from having to conduct a tear filled plea to Extra for you to get professional mental help. (It would only be fair).

  • Josh

    Right on JV!!!!!!!

    I totally agree.

    HA obama getting schooled. Quick someone get obama a teleprompter so he can retort!

  • rendell

    john voight is an ignorant racist pig.

  • Gail

    Jon Voight is CORRECT and a brave man! God bless him!

  • KB

    He is insane. The country should abide by Jewish religion? Really?

  • Steph

    Since when does religious affiliation excuse your actions? Religion is not equal to politics! If they mess up, then they should take responsibility. Don’t see how Palestinian kids are “murderers and criminals”…when have we lost our humanity? Hamas leaders yes, Palestinian people no. Anti-semitism has nothing to do with politics. Voicing criticism at Israel’s political actions, does not make any one anti-semite.
    And I’m not even going to start with Arizona, because that is bullshit all the way.
    Through what glasses does this man see the world? I’m aghast and somewhat angry at you, Mr. Voight.

  • Megan

    John Voight.. YOU sir, are a complete NUT JOB.! STFU. You are an ELITIST republican spewing teabaggery for you own personal agenda. We can only thank gawd that you have only “PLAYED” a commander in chief and will NEVER have the Opportunity to be one.

  • Iffy Miffy

    He keeps making this ridiculous statements … knowing when to keep your mouth shut is a virtue and Mr. Voight has zero of those it seems. To be concise – shut up John and stop making a fool of yourself in your old age!

  • Raz

    Jon Voight is a complete idiot…One you support a country that attacked innocent helping ppl…then you are blaming others to side with you…WOW

  • Nick

    so rediculous!! This is what an american calls a country that attacked humanitarian aid&murdered activists in cold blood&in international waters?? Is slaughtering women and children 2 years ago what a democratic state does?? If so, then THANK GOD there are no other countries like that in the middle east!! A$$hole!!

  • miranda.

    what do you think of obama’s actions to his “better world” plan? do you think he’s actually helping the country by sending off more troops? he said he was going to bring them back, but he only sent off more! i don’t know about you but i think that his actions are starting to have nothing to do with his famous speech back in ’09. he is only continueing what bush started and i believe it is only going to get worse if we don’t act now. oh, and do you realize all the kids in palestine/ israel (surronding countries) are benefiting from this? families are living in terror! the troops and soldiers are raiding there homes, guarding the towns. just a few months back i remember seeing a short segment on the news of kids entering their school but the a troop with tanks right outside the gate with an armed gun “keeping guard”. and i also remember another one of a little girl trying to hold her family together because her father lost his leg because a soldier shot it and her mother died when she was younger. she doesn’t even go to school anymore. if you had seen the tears while she told her story, you would have felt the pain in her words, if not – then you have no heart.

    obama is too young and naive to be a president. Agreed with Jon! :)

  • Brad Pity

    Hate to admit, but Daddy-in-law is absolutely correct. Obama sux. Besides Angi can’t stand him (Obama).

  • bren

    here we go with the anti semite card again. god forbid someone doesn’t like israel or agree with its politics. newsflash: israel isn’t perfect (like every single country), has its share of good and shameful deeds, AND has commited war crimes (don’t take my word for it, take the UN’s word).

  • Dawn

    Jon should do some research. If he did, he would know that Obama is deporting more illegal immigrants than Bush did.

  • Jermaine

    Not an Obama supporter (FFS all Presidents are the same) but JV is an ignorant, racist DOUCHEBAG.

  • bbgun

    Dear Israel,
    if you take someone’s land under the pretense of being the victim, when in reality you are the aggressor, do not be surprised when people hate you and want to see you dissolve into nothingness from which you came.

    Sincerely,
    the whole eductated and erudite human population.

  • az

    Really, for a guy who has golfed more in 16 months as President then George Bush did in 8 WHOLE Years, it sure hasn’t impeded his ability to ruin everything he touches, healthcare prices are going threw the roof, by the end of 2010 it will be 2 years of unemployment of 10%, he and democrats have spent since the took power over $ 6 trillion dollars, that’s more the Clinton and Bush combined…. the world has gotten crazier and more dangerous, the country has declined and gotten poorer, business leaders think Obama policies are impeding the economy, every month the federal government is showing more and more incompetence, the military thinks Obama is a joke with 2 wars , one in which Obama added 60 thousand more troops , but can barely figure out what is going on …………………………. at least Obama has time to golf and throw parties at the White House.

  • payday

    You look ridiculous talking about another country as if they are any more important than others.

    America and Israel are two different countires and are as ddifferent as nioght in day in just about everyway.

    JV is actually wong on many fronts. The US has been practically the only country in this world who is a “friend” to Israel. This isn’t recent, this has been for decades. That should say something. However being a friend does not mean the US is to defend Israel militarily. They have their own as they should because they have their own enemies with their own histories which have nothing to do with the US no matter how many Jews live here. We DO NOT have the same enemies. That’s a trick to drag the US into something we should never be involved in (sound familiar)In addition a friend does not blindly look the other way when you have some shady dealings going on. Your friend will call you on it.

    No matter bnow many lobbyists that Israell has in Washington, Israel is a FOREIGN country. JV is obviously being paid to say these things.

  • Dawn

    @miranda.:

    Obama said he was going to withdraw troops from Iraq. And he has done that. If you are talking about Afghanistan, we need more troops there. We need to get rid of the Taliban. If we were to leave Afghanistan, the Taliban would take back control. Thousands of girls would be taken out of school if that happen. Women would no longer have the choice whether or not to fully covered. And so and so on.

  • Mark McCay

    Nicely said, Jon!!! I never thought I would agree with him, but he concisely said what tons of people are thinking. At least he used his popularilty to make a very valid and timely public statement!

  • Francia

    Today, we cannot criticise Israel gouvernment’s decisions without being accused of being antisemist. This gouvernment is just hiding behind jews’ genocide. The thing is that it does not justify its many decisions which ruins the peace process. Cant’ hide behind God, Jon. Gotta move on, if you want to have some change…need some compromises, can’t ask and not give, which is what Israel’s been doing so far.

  • anon

    He looks like a fool talking about Israel. The average American is not thinking about or frankly could not care less about that country. As harsh as that may seem, it’s true.

  • missy

    @Steph:

    the “people” are strapping bombs on their mothers and their children, please educate yourself, you sound ignorant

  • Brightside

    Israel has done a far better job of propagandising itself through it’s vicious and inhumane actions against many innocent people. Most people don’t equate Barack Obama with their view of Israel, they equate it with Israel’s treatment of other people who live within their country but aren’t jewish. And those who don’t!

    @anon:

    It’s the truth. Iseral is not even on our radar. Heck, the oil spill in the gulf is not even on most American’s radar. I saw a poll a few days ago that said that more Americans are concerned about the economy and jobs than the oil spill.

  • http://justjared.com NHT

    First of all, God gave us the Commandments, and He loves us all, Jews and Gentiles and Obama. I don’t recall Mr. Voight sending a piece to the newspapers when they were sending dogs and fire hoses on kids in America. In the long run it is not about politicians or Jews or inventors. It is about showing love and respect to our God and our fellowman in all the world, even Washington. Voights choice of words are not for the”betterment of mankind, but for the betterment of politics.” At age 70 years old, one would think he would have learned how to intellligently disagree with someone without all the heart cutting, hate filled language he uses. There was a better way to say that very same thing with discretion.

  • http://yahoo.com maddy

    So, what exactly did he say that makes him racist? He told the truth about Arizona, and the illegal immigrants, why should they be allowed to stay in our country? Do you really want America to end up like Mexico? They’ve totally screwed up their country, now let them come here and take over- how long will it be before they’ve made our streets killing zones? If anyone can tell me one thing Obama has done that has helped out country (that came from his own policies- not just continuing with the former administration), I’ll call him President- I don’t see that happening, the man should not be running our country, he is inept at best and a traitor to our constitution.

  • WTF?

    WTF? JON VOIGHT!!!!! PRESIDENT OBAMA SHOULD HAVE PUT HIS INFAMOUS SPEECH ABOUT ABSENTEE FATHERS IN ALL THE NEWSPAPERS ON FATHER’S DAY.

    THAT SPEECH WAS TAILOR MADE FOR THE CREEPY FATHERS LIKE JON VOIGHT WHO ABANDONED THEIR CHILDREN WHEN THEY WERE YOUNG.

    JON VOIGHT WAS AND IS A TERRIBLE FATHER.

  • Moon

    Jon your as crazy as your herion daughter!! Go back to your cage!!

  • Gal

    Thank you!!

    Finally someone who is using some common sense!!

    We’re with you JV!

  • Dawn

    @maddy:

    Obama challenging the Arizona immigration law has nothing to do with him wanting illegal immigrants staying here. Like I saw before, he has deported more illegal immigrants than Bush. It has to do with the fact that the Arizona law is opening up the chance for racial profiling and the harassment of Hispanics who are here legally.

  • whatever

    Ignorant racist piece of garbage. why does anyone care what he says or print it?

  • kat

    SHUT UP YOU FLAMING NUTBAG. God. You were annoying enough when you were just a BAD ACTOR.

  • um

    oh so the entire counttry got screwed up in the 2 years since President Obama came into office eh?

    What screwed up America in the past 50 years has been the decline in educational standards.

    Americans sense of entitlement and mastering the art of crybabying is also a problem.

  • smr

    I felt completly the other way around. Obama has been doing favors to Israel and that is well known outside USA. He’s been way too good with them even when they are doing what is wrong.

  • Moira

    @Camden:

    LOL!!!!!!!!!

    Where were you and Jon Voight from 2001-2009? Pres, Obama is cleaning up the mess your cowboy made.

  • interesting

    @WTF?:

    we can see that Angie and James took after their mother….

    He’s old so you would think that he would spend time trying to make up for all those years he abandoned his kids.

    I do agree with JV a little about the Arizona law. Only a little because I’m not sure what Arizona’s true agenda is. If it’s as they say it is, then ok. But I have a feeling there’s a lot more to this proposed law than meets the eye. They need to explain it better and in more detail. The arrogant attitude of the AZ Governor just rubs me the wrong way.

  • TIM GUNN SIGHS

    Well, said, Mr. Voight.

    I don’t play partisan politics, which to the majority of the uneducated Jared posters infers, my opinion on politics is not judged by the individual politician’s particular party affiliation, bur rather his actions.

    However, The President has made some unwise choices of late, quite unwise.

    Kudos to Mr. Voight for writing an INFORMED letter to the editor.
    Ms. Jolie will be proud of her father.

    The only question for THIS site is how many commentersactually have an inkling of the subject matter of the letter. I’d bet, almost none.

    I’ will guess all comments will be pro-Obama from Democrats or anti Obama from Republicans.

    AKA, Ignorance personified.

    Oh, for the days when the youth of American READ BOOKS instead of gossip blogs.
