Actor Jon Voight: Obama False Prophet, Soft Spoken Julius Caesar

June 9, 2009

(ChattahBox)–There wasn’t a Democrat to be found at the Washington Convention Center last night, as Republican leaders and conservative pundits, such as Sean Hannity and Newt Gingrich attended the major fundraising dinner for the Republican House and Senate campaign committees. Master of ceremonies, actor and rabid conservative Jon Voight, provided plenty of red-meat right wing rhetoric, to the delight of the 2,000 attendees, some of which was outright bizarre.

Jon Voight repeated a speech he had given earlier that day before the congressional committee, setting the paranoid tone for the evening. Voight provided a dire doomsday message throughout his speech, calling for fellow Republicans to “free this nation from this Obama oppression.”

He blamed Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, the Republican’s bogeyman, George Soros and Chris Dodd and “their ilk,” for what he called the “downfall” of our country. Conveniently forgetting the disastrous policies of the Bush administration of the past eight years.

He laced his speech with negative references to President Obama’s huge popularity and high approval ratings, demonizing Obama by such depictions, as “…Obama’s false Halo-istic presence,” and his anointing as the “One” by Oprah Winfrey.

Voight went on to call Obama’s policies “wildly radical.” “Obama thinks he is a soft spoken Julius Caesar,” said Voight who plans to conquer the world with his “…sweet talk.”

Voight ended his exercise in demagoguery by shouting out to his right wing FOX heroes, including Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly, Glen Beck and Michelle Malkin, praising them for keeping up the fight to defeat the “…false prophet Obama.”

Disgraced former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, as the keynote speaker, continued Voight’s bashing of President Obama claiming Obama’s policies to fix the economy have “already failed.”

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell referred to President Obama’s policies as a “radical agenda.”

McConnell, Senator Orrin Hatch and Senator John Cornyn praised Voight’s speech as “refreshing.”

When Voight was introduced, he was praised for his inspiring movie roles, such as his portrayal of Franklin Delano Roosevelt in the film Pearl Harbor.

However, last night he more resembled his villainous character on the FOX show 24, Jonas Hodges, a deranged right-wing industrialist, turned domestic terrorist, who seeks to overtake the U.S. government.

    Actor Jon Voight, the master of ceremonies, opened the evening with a series of sharp attacks on Obama, something many Republican leaders have been hesitant to do in light of the president’s high approval ratings. …

    Bout time! When is Obama going to start taking blame instead of passing the buck to the President before him. Obama has doubled our deficit and he is a FAILURE! We knew it was going to happen but I guess you had to let the popular vote win huh? TOLD YA SO!

  3. Michael on June 9th, 2009 5:08 pm

    I did not realize Voight was such a whack-job. The GOP is way past the hysterical point now. It is increasingly obvious they have nothing to offer this country, and that they don’t care if we fail, as long as it helps the GOP.

  4. john eissens on June 9th, 2009 5:09 pm

    I think Jon Voight is exactly right. History has shown that any perceived weakness invites aggression and strength liberates and secures peace. Why our president Obama would cut our military and give reassurance to chavez, castro putin, amadenijob and their lawless henchmen has to be very alarming to anyone paying attention at all.

  5. former republican on June 9th, 2009 5:21 pm

    I can’t remember the last time the GOP even talked about some of the problems facing our nation, let alone actual solutions for them. SS and Medicare are doomed, our children are falling behind in education, we are still totally dependent on foreign oil…So many significant problems to talk about and they haven’t offered a single solution for any of them. All we hear is fear-mongering about how evil Obama is going to ruin the world.

    How about it, you fools? Have you anything constructive to say? Do you even know anything beyond what your drug-addict thrice-divorced talking heads tell you?

    Gotta love that neutral-toned article, no bias there, huh? The left—where all voices are heard and welcomed, as long as you sing their tune.

  9. Mike on June 9th, 2009 6:01 pm

    Failure after only 6 months . . . hmmm . . . I suppose Bush was an absolute failure given he took 7 years and didn’t remedy 9/11 (instead, convoluted it). Indeed, red rhetoric has nothing but paranoia left to spread given it has no legs to stand on. In the end, Kerry didn’t look so bad, did he? Don’t say we didn’t give everyone a chance.

  10. Linda on June 9th, 2009 6:15 pm

    No, you’re wrong. Republicans don’t care if OBAMA ‘S policies fail since they are destroying this country.

  11. Aric on June 9th, 2009 6:30 pm

    Bravo to Jon Voight, and if as some people say he is a whack job, watch out because there are millions of us. We are not melting down we are re energizing so watch out liberals, we’re coming and we’re coming to really make a change ! Down with Liberalism! Down with Liberalism!
    Obama is like some little boy, a little charm and the liberals boys and girls go gaga, but the adults in this country have had enough. Jon is saying what millions of us think and just don’t have the star power to find a venue, where we will be listened to.
    Go Jon, turn up the heat!

  12. Jason on June 9th, 2009 6:41 pm

    Gingrich is more than a “disgraced former” anything – he is a conservative’s dream when he is able to articulate better than anyone else out there how Obama, Pelosi and Harry Reid deconstruct the strongest economy in the history of the world. I wish Sarah Palin had his communication skills. Pretty package, but can’t listen to her inability to carry on a normal conversation let alone an intelligent arguement. What she says on paper has curb appeal, but when you hear what she says, it leaves something to be desired.
    As far as the brilliant actor Voight, well done. He is calling on people like Limbaugh to be this period’s Thomas Paine (sp?). As Americans we all have our part to play, but as Conservatives it is our duty and priviledge to fight like hell to stop this absurdity known as Obamanomics and weakend, inept foreign policy. This is should not be a political discussion or fight, but rather an all out offensive on ideals and principles.

  13. former republican on June 9th, 2009 7:06 pm

    “This is should not be a political discussion or fight, but rather an all out offensive on ideals and principles.”

    Is that because you so called conservatives don’t have any solutions for any of the problems this nation faces? This is the most complex nation in the world and you want to solve problems with platitudes. You are why the GOP is dying. Keep attacking ideas while offering none of your own. That will ensure you feeble-minded fools stay out of power.

  14. listening on June 9th, 2009 7:13 pm

    It is about time….the country and the world are wearing rose colored glasses and drinking the kool-aid. He may not be the most popular person but He is saying what so many are thinking and want to shout out in these days of SUPER PSEUDO POLITICAL CORRECTNESS!!!!!!!!

    Of course, soon those that supported his moment will retract under pressure. It is all so predictable and so already in the design.

  16. Katie on June 9th, 2009 9:04 pm

    Voight is exactly right. Obama needs to stop trying to make the rich happy. The mismanagement by the CEOs were to blame for their bankruptcy. Should tax payers fix their mistakes? What about the little man? Obama doesn’t care for them. They don’t fund campaigns. Bush wasn’t to blame for 9/11. This was handed to him from the previous administration. You didn’t hear Bush throwing blame, though. He was respectful and did the best he could with an uncooperative congress. Voting for war and then, saying they didn’t. Hello. There’s enough blame for everyone. Not Bush, alone.

  17. former republican on June 9th, 2009 9:13 pm

    Since Obama took office the DOW has stopped its freefall and actually gained 8%. Also, job losses and home values have finally slowed their declines for the first time since this mess started way back in 2007. Sorry GOP wackjobs, but you’re just WRONG. Keep up with the absurd claims and fear-mongering…we want to be sure none of the moderates in this country get fooled into supporting you again.

  18. former republican on June 9th, 2009 9:18 pm

    Katie, like most GOP supporters I’ve talked to recently you show a total failure to understand basic economics. If we didn’t bail out banks then the taxpayers would have suffered much greater job losses and asset value declines. Also, the banks are already trying to repay the bailout funds. No sane person can look at the facts and say that the TARP failed. What’s more, you said “Obama needs to stop trying to make the rich happy”. Did you forget? Bush signed TARP into law.

    What is wrong with you people? Are you all home schooled or something?

  19. Old Man Dotes on June 9th, 2009 10:16 pm

    I am white, 58 years old, retired US Army (a Mechanized Infantry Bradley commander, to be precise), and I see most of the problems facing the US as caused by the Republican party having ignored obvious signs of impending disaster, while they were scrambling to gain more power and wealth for themselves, no matter who had to suffer (or die) for it. Bush and Cheney in particular actually had their staff re-write intelligence and scientific reports so that they would support what the GOP wanted – more war, and more oil imports. How many youngAmericans have already died or been maimed in support of Daddy Bush’s War, Part Two?

    Jon-boy has no more grip on problems and solutions than the other washed-up actors (like that drug-crazed lunatic Limbaugh) in his age group (read: senile) do.

    The GOP supporters strike me as semi-illiterate, under- or uneducated, tobacco-chewing, inbred rednecks, on the whole. And those are the cream of that crop.

    Is it any wonder why Angelina Jolie doesn’t want to have anything to do with her biological father?

  21. Mike on June 10th, 2009 12:11 am

    Republicans have owned this country ever since Reagan got elected, and their neo-fascist policies have been a complete complete and utter disaster. All they’re offering now is more of what created this mess in the first place – more tax cuts, more de-regulation, more free trade, more wars and prisons.

    Unfortunately, Democrats aren’t any better, as they they think the only way they can get elected is by running as Republicans. The truth is Obama isn’t much of a change from Bush – despite all the crocodile tears from Republicans – and social and economic conditions in this country are going to have to get much worse before we see any real political change.

  22. TheLazyComic on June 10th, 2009 2:00 am

    I didn’t defend Bush on his economic policies. They were what got us into this mess, but freakin’ Blow-bama’s are even worse, and I didn’t think that was possible. Glad to see somebody, (Jon Voight), speaking the truth, and not spinning stories to make Blow-bama sound like a God. And finally, I wish they’d quit calling this a recession. It’s a depression folks. Yes, a depression. Quit listening to the pin-heads in Washington. Only in depressions do people lose their jobs in huge numbers, their savings & investments, and their homes. Oh, and that 9.4 percent unemployment number? Double it for the real number. It doesn’t count folks who’s unemployment insurance ran out, or those who are not eligible. So, in other words 18,.8 percent is a much more realistic number.

  23. Liz on June 10th, 2009 3:03 am

    John Roberts didn’t even attempt to disguise his contempt for Voight when this story was reported on American Morning. I’m so disgusted by the flagrant liberal media bias, anyone who dare speaks ill of the Messiah is chastised and dismissed as a “quack.”

    Fortunately, there are opposing views in this country. I desparately hope they can keep this President in check, as our Founding Fathers had suggested should occur…..because Obama’s policies are dangerous. Even those who detested “he who shall not be named”, our 43rd President, should keep their eyes open to Obama’s proposals. This CHANGE will not do you good.

    Ive always like this guy as an actor,i never knew he was this brillant.thankyou for not being another disapointing actor.

  25. Shannon on June 10th, 2009 3:45 am

    Please, everyone watch the u-tube video called Obama’s Deception. I watched it and it scared the he– out of me. It will show you how long this deception has been going on and those involved in the World’s demise. Our so-called government is going to take all of our money, possessions, freedoms and whatever else we may have away from us. It will not only involve the United States but the world.

    Please, please watch this video. Thank you

    I don’t think we need advice from a hypocrite womaniser, who couldn’t even hold his family together.

  27. former republican on June 10th, 2009 10:22 am

    Obama the same as Bush? Are you blind? Retarded? Both? He’s trying to undo most of Bush’s disastrous policies: let’s enumerate them:
    1) Stop spreading anti-American sentiment throughout the world; Speak to others with respect; strike terrorist recruiting tools harder with words than with guns
    2) Stop trusting the wealthy to create wealth in this country — Bush’s tax cuts for the wealthy were supposed to be temporary fixes for tough times…that means let them expire; taxes were far higher under Reagan than they are now and we’ve got deficits to deal with
    3) Invest in the US — not foreign policy that hurts us more than it helps us; that means education, renewable energy, protection of the environment and natural resources
    4) Efficient healthcare — the US spends twice the portion of its GDP on healthcare than all other developed nations because our system limits competition; other nations show us that costs are reduced for all when private competes with public

    But what do you GOP faithful want to do?
    1) Burn through our remaining natural resources as fast as we can. Drill baby drill…even tho it wouldn’t provide 10 years of US consumption and then we’d be right back where we started…minus our most pristine ecosystem
    2) Brandish big sticks and war drums; Tell everyone else they are weak and if they don’t join us we just might reduce them to ashes
    3) Cut taxes for the rich and pray to Jesus that they will invest in our nation
    4) Leave our old and poor to die in ditches; pray to Jesus that they don’t resort to drastic measures causing damages to us all (e.g. spend less on education and cut SS and medicare)
    5) Leave our inefficient healthcare system as it is because governments that try to make their people healthy are socialist and therefore Nazis

    Keep it up GOP, you won’t get elected with this garbage again.

  28. jeanne trentham on June 10th, 2009 3:58 pm

    Why is everyone bashing Obama after only 5 months in office? The Bush admistration had 8 years to make our country safe and secure but that didnt happen… 8 YEARS not 5 months. How can anyone in their right mind expect Obama to fix the world /countrys problems in 5 months i mean come on now are you serious ? you know thats not possible!! We say we want peace with other nations and Obama is trying to accomplish that! either we want peace or we don’t , If Obama goes to another country and shows respect we get all up in the air about it but then if they come to our country we EXPECT them to show respect for the usa. Someone has to make the first move other wise we have a stand off and what does that do for us ? nothing. God never intended for us to fight amoung ourseleves like this we are suppose to join together. IF you spent as must time and effort on helpig find solutions for our country as you do bashing Obama I think we would start seeing a turn around. If the past 8 years have not worked then apparently we need to do something different and if people like Voight and Gingrich and others like them have the solutions to it all then why in the heck are they not president and have all this fixed in the past 5 months? I’m just saying!!!! We can only give Obama 5 months yet we have given Bush 8 years. For the multi-rich that have nothing else to do than bash someone how about find a solutions to this ( we have people literlly living in tents because they have lost there homes and jobs and trust me that did not happen in just 5 months. Sit in your over sized recliner tonight and look at your spouse and children and try to imagine and visualize how you would feel right now if you had to sell everything you owned and throw up a tent for your children to live in with no a/c or heat , elec, water and not a clue as to what your going to do .. think about that because it is happening and just because the majority of the public is not rich does not mean that they don’t love and care for their families just as much as you do. So my point is no matter which side of the fence your on stop all the bashing and complaining and do the jobs that you were hired to do please. Because if the requirements for a political high paying position requires that you act like a 1st grader , name calling and finger pointing then i know a lot of unemployed people that would like an application.

  29. Mike on June 10th, 2009 5:40 pm

    Ok, former republican, where are the policies to go along with Obama’s rhetoric? Let’s take each of your 4 points one by one:

    1) Stop spreading anti-American sentiment throughout the world –

    Obama has offered little here except talk. He and the Democrats in Congress are continuing with Bush’s illegal anti-terrorism policies; in fact, they can’t even bring themselves to close Guantanamo, which if you recall, was one of Obama’s major campaign promises.

    2) Stop trusting the wealthy to create wealth in this country –

    Why then is Obama is spending a TRIILLION dollars to bail out wealthy businessmen while allowing struggling homeowners to be tossed into the streets? His economic policies are EXACTLY the same as Bush’s, minus tax cuts for the wealthy. Actually, Obama went back on a promise to increase taxes on the wealthy, so he’s really no better than Bush even on taxes.

    3) Invest in the US –

    You’re dreaming if you think Obama and the Democrats will do anything to reverse NAFTA or any other part of the globalist agenda. There are already bills in Congress to increase H1B visas to a MILLION a year.

    4) Efficient healthcare –

    You’re also dreaming if you think Obama and the Democrats will support single-payer or even a genuine public option. Max Baucus – one of the most conservative Democrats in the Senate – is Obama’s point man on healthcare, and you’ve got to be outright nuts if you think he’s going to allow any legislation that would endanger the monopoly of the healthcare industry.

    Getting back to the original topic, it’s obvious that people like Voight and Limbaugh and Palin rant hysterically because they know this tactic makes Democrats nervous and forces them to the right. It’s worked for the last 30 years, and will probably continue to work until the country evolves into a fascist dictatorship.

    The right picks the oddest role models. Voight abandoned Angelina Jolie and her brother through most of their childhood and is so estranged from her now, he’s never even met his grandkids. Wasn’t this the party of family values? I guess when Newt Gingrich (adulterer; served wife divorce papers when she was in the hospital recovering from cancer surgery) and Rush Limbaugh (drug addict) and Bill O’Reilly (settled suit over sexual harassment), you sort of have to downplay that whole “moral majority” stuff. Good work, guys!

  32. JC on June 22nd, 2009 2:49 am

    Sorry Mike,
    But you appear to be a Libertarian. Not Republican.
    The truth about healcare, is that the HMO’s have made health insurance a BIG business. As large or larger and just as powerful as Big Tobacco use to be in the late Eighties.
    Should we bailout big Biz like AIG. Well that is a slippery slope. Many arguments for and against. But the real argument should be. Would have this adversaly affected the economey. Or just slightly. That is the question. Only an econmist can answer this.

  33. Kirk Meaux on March 19th, 2010 9:40 pm

    Edit this post please. John
    Voight is not right in the head. Ask his X-wife

  34. Rick S on April 10th, 2010 8:29 pm

    Whomever said John Voight is a Whack Job is part of the problem with Obamas mantra. They hate anyone who speaks their mind and tells it like it is, and its just fine for them to call people names to win an argument. So A typical of a progresive socialist. Ouch, that person may not even realise they are one…

  35. Sheik Yerbouti on April 23rd, 2010 11:30 pm

    JC, I’m not sure why it’s a problem if Mike is a Libertarian. He’s simply saying that Obama is not that different from the last guy. He’s pushed through more bailouts — just like Bush — and now he’s working with Congress to give Goldman Sachs even more goodies.

    And with all due respect, no; it doesn’t take an economist to answer your question. Taking billions in taxpayer money and giving them to people who have already lost billions? Foolish.

    The Democrats are steering us toward a nasty crash landing. The Republicans will just do it more slowly. Between them, they’ll keep us fighting over which one is going to save us THIS year… until we have nothing left.
