VOIGHT: My concerns for America
Obama sowing socialist seeds in young people
Monday, July 28, 2008
Actor Jon Voight. Associated Press.
We, as parents, are well aware of the importance of our teachers who teach and program our children. We also know how important it is for our children
to play with good-thinking children growing up.
Good thinking is defined as "Those who think like me!"
How else can you define "good thinking"? That should all depend on what you value. The left will view "good thinking" much differently than will
the right. So right off we have "us and them" rhetoric. Great.
Sen. Barack Obama has grown up with the teaching of very angry, militant white and black people: the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, William
Ayers and Rev. Michael Pfleger.
Hah! You should have met my Father. THE MOST Angriest white man on the planet. He hated EVERYONE, including himself.
We cannot say we are not affected by teachers who are militant and angry. We know too well that we become like them, and Mr. Obama will run this
country in their mindset.
Nope that's not right at all. My father was a very hateful person. What I learned most was NOT TO BE LIKE HIM. He was physically abusive to all of
his children. He was racist, and bigoted toward anyone who had more than him. He threatened my mother with knives and my earliest memories of him
are of me hiding under my bed from his foot as it kicked at me.
My point? This was EXACTLY the Anti-Role model I needed. My life has been one of diversity and learning where his anger came from so I can avoid it
myself. I have learned the personal demons that he, and I fight with, but I have chose to fight those demons differently and not blame everyone else
for my issues, but to take responsibility.
So angry mentors can really have the reverse effect that Mr Voight is talking about. Keep that in mind.
The Democratic Party, in its quest for power, has managed a propaganda campaign with subliminal messages, creating a God-like figure in a man who
falls short in every way.
The same can be said of any political party. The following applies to the Republicans as well as the Democrats
1. They quest for power. Thank goodness because who wants a party who isn't interested in power?
2. They manage propaganda campaigns. How else do you get a nation of 300 million people to vote your direction?
3. They use subliminal messages. yep, this is true for Republicans as well as Democrats.
4.Creating a God-Like figure in a man who falls short in every way. This in itself is simply a propoganda statement from Voight himself. See #2 and
It seems to me that if Mr. Obama wins the presidential election, then Messrs. Farrakhan, Wright, Ayers and Pfleger will gain power for their need to
demoralize this country and help create a socialist America.
You don't think that the people you mention see this country as already demoralized? And what makes you think these people will "be in power" I
don't see them as members of the team here.
And if they don't get an office of some sort once election has occured, what will you say then? Mea Culpa?
The Democrats have targeted young people, knowing how easy it is to bring forth whatever is needed to program their minds.
Once again, this is what every generation does to the younger. We target young people to program them. And?
I know this process well. I was caught up in the hysteria during the Vietnam era, which was brought about through Marxist propaganda underlying the
so-called peace movement.
Oh... so the American Gov turning our troops into drug addled baby killers didn't have anything to do with the drive toward peace?
The religious section of our country also was involved with the peace movement... they must have been evil marxists too.
The radicals of that era were successful in giving the communists power to bring forth the killing fields and slaughter 2.5 million people in Cambodia
and South Vietnam.
Whoa.. so you are equating the radicals (always a good thing especially during the American Revolution) in this country who marched in the streets as
being responsible for the killing fields in Cambodia?
If that isnt PROPAGANDA I don't know what is.
Did they stop the war, or did they bring the war to those innocent people? In the end, they turned their backs on all the horror and suffering they
helped create and walked away.
Really? A bunch of pot smoking hippies practicing free love and protesting the war did all that?
Those same leaders who were in the streets in the '60s are very powerful today in their work to bring down the Iraq war and to attack our president,
and they have found their way into our schools.
Thank GOD! Have you seen how blatantly unamerican the war in Iraq is? Have you seen how the same people who are against the Iraq war are FOR the war
Yes we should attack our president, with the impeachment papers which are in congress now. This is because this guy absued his office for personal
William Ayers is a good example of that.
Really? Ayers is against the Iraq war too? Go figure.
Thank God, today, we have a strong generation of young soldiers who know exactly who they are
Ok.. I support the troops. But as a vet, I will tell you that the majority of the people who join the military do so because they DO NOT KNOW WHO
THEY ARE. I've never seen a a bigger bunch of posers than the bootcamps that go to the field and fleet. They look like a bunch of dime-store
cowboys and hiphop popsicles as they are trying very hard to create an identity.
Don't get me wrong, I'm all for the military, but let's not get carried away here.
and what they must do to protect our freedom and our democracy.
They follow orders. Period. The young generation in our armed forces simply follow orders. That's it. You know why? Because otherwise they will
And we have the leadership of Gen. David Petraeus, who has brought hope and stability to Iraq
After those before him totally screwed it up because there was no GAME PLAN!
and prevented the terrorists from establishing a base in that country.
Meanwhile, Why we are diverted with Iraq, Osama is still on the run... Great
Our soldiers are lifting us to an example of patriotism at a time when we've almost forgotten who we are and what is at stake.
Once again, our soldiers are following orders, as they should. patriotism is defined not as Blind Nationalism as this guy thinks, but as the will to
stand up for your fellow man.
There are tons of troops who are not patriots, but have no other recourse financially than to join up. Some are thugs who have been given the choice
between prison and national service. Some are islamists working to change the system from within.
Others though are high minded patriots, like Tilman who gave up everything for the ideal of America. Too bad his own troops killed him.
If Mr. Obama had his way, he would have pulled our troops from Iraq years ago and initiated an unprecedented bloodbath, turning over that country to
the barbarianism of our enemies.
Instead we got the barbarianism of ourselves. Abu Ghraib, Rape muzzles given out by the CIA so that forced oral sex could be a tool of suppression
and dominance. great.
With what he has openly stated about his plans for our military,
yes.. to remove them from harms way before we don't have any military left.
and his lack of understanding about the true nature of our enemies,
Really? I bet he realizes the difference between sunni and shia. Can you say that about McCain?
there's not a cell in my body that can accept the idea that Mr. Obama can keep us safe from the terrorists around the world, and from Iran, which is
making great strides toward getting the atomic bomb.
Who created those darned Atomic bombs? Oh wait.. WE DID!
And while a misleading portrait of Mr. Obama is being perpetrated by a media controlled by the Democrats, the Obama camp has sent out people to attack
the greatness of Sen. John McCain, whose suffering and courage in a Hanoi prison camp is an American legend.
First off.. Greatness of McCain?
Respected war hero yes... BiPartisan senator.. yes
Greatness? Is this the kind of "God-Like figure" propoganda you were just accusing the democrats of?
Also, no one is attacking McCain, because we don't have to. Obama stands on his own WITHOUT the need to attack.
Gen. Wesley Clark, who himself has shame upon him, having been relieved of his command, has done their bidding and become a lying fool in his need to
demean a fellow soldier and a true hero.
Oh so the military is great as long as they support your cause. Other than that they are lying fools?
More propaganda.. really? i thought you were against propaganda?
This is a perilous time, and more than ever, the world needs a united and strong America.
Completely agree, Bush as SCREWED our nation Royally.
If, God forbid, we live to see Mr. Obama president, we will live through a socialist era that America has not seen before, and our country will be
weakened in every way.
Can you look in that crystal ball and tell me if I will win the lottery too?
