The ramblings of Hollywood Republicans took another weird turn yesterday, as Academy Award-winning actor and GOP convert Jon Voight called President Barack Obama a Marxist and accused him of controlling the media.
While being interviewed by Reveal Politics, Angelina Jolie's father said that the media is complicit in the operation with the Obama administration.
"America, guys, wake up," he continued. You should be appalled that they can get away with it, that they can attack – the Republican Party is a victim of a bias, of a destructive bias against the Republican Party. It’s been going on for all this time and it’s getting worse and worse. And, now this? Come on, people, stand up."
Voight also accused Hollywood of being brainwashed by liberals. And on Tuesday, he went a step further, not just likening Obama to a communist dictator, but calling him a Marxist.
"Well, his father was a Marxist — of course he was influenced by it,” he told Reveal Politics. “His mother, who led him towards his father’s Marxism – yes. His mentor was a fellow by the name of Frank Marshall Davis, he was a communist. And, of course, his alliances from that time on."
Voight has always voiced his concerns about Obama. In 2012, he told Fox News:
"President Obama feeds people poison, giving them the idea that they are entitled to take from the wealthier who have lived and worked in a democracy that understands that capitalism is the only truth that keeps a nation healthy ... [Obama uses] a socialistic, Marxist teaching, and with it, he rapes this nation..."
To each his own; we guess Voight isn’t a fan of Obama!
