Voight Is Unafraid
November 12, 2010 by Chip Wood
*One actor is not afraid to speak out. Did you hear about the open letter actor Jon Voight sent President Barack Obama a few weeks ago? Most Hollywood actors would never dare buck the liberal line; it’s usually a death sentence for a career.
So a tip of the hat to Voight, who spoke “truth to power” like few of his colleagues would dare. Here’s part of that letter; you can go to Google to read the whole thing.
“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 their enemies. You have done just the opposite….
“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 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.”
Jon, I enjoyed you as a villain on “24.” But I admire you even more as an outspoken patriot. Thank you for speaking out so forcefully.
