Jon Voight Uses "Verbal Violence" Against America's Enemies

"My view of it is this: they say our president lied to us. Well, he didn't lie to us, everybody else had the information he had."

He also seems to think this cat in Iran is sort of dangerous.

What a kook!

I like this question from Radar -- absurd. After Voight pans the media for being sensationalistic and agenda-driven, this twit asks:

But there's still a role for journalism in democracy, right?

As if his answer would be "No, journalism must not exist in a democracy. We must repeal the first amendment posthaste."

Liberals truly are stupid people. Stupid? Okay, let me use the phraseology they use to suggest Bush is stupid: They are determinedly intellectually incurious about any sort of thought that is different from their own.

Here's how he answered.

Of course. You bet. There's a place for good actors in movies too. But you can do damage to a decent movie by going off in the wrong direction too. My brother Chip [Taylor] wrote a song—he wrote "Wild Thing" and he wrote it at 2:00 in the morning—one of the lyrics was very telling: "The trouble with humans is they're only human / The trouble with trouble is it's always around." That's the deal. We have to fight against gravity to stand up. We should help each other. And the truth is very important. Journalism can be helpful too, but once it bends to sensationalism and commercialism and becomes agenda-driven, it's not so good.

Duh.
