Sometimes a celebrity's political affiliation will be posted in a Wickipedia bio. I was amazed at how some of the Hollywood icons were so adamently against Michael Moore's Farenheit 911
. Clint Eastwood's reaction was particularly
ing and he forgot for awhile that he wasn't really Dirty Harry. I am not particularly fond of Eastwood now, although he has done some fine work during his career.
I despise arrogance in any
person, male or female. Tom Cruise and Mel Gibson are the epitomy of arrogance and narcissism and I will never purchase a movie ticket to see anything they are in or have been a part of producing. Neither do I like Jon Voight. He's a winger, believes Bush and Cheney tell the truth all the time, and campaigned for Rudy.
Jon Voight appeared on Fox & Friends on Fox News to endorse former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani for the 2008 Republican Party nomination. He attended a Guilani campaign event and said New York City was transformed into a much safer, cleaner and more livable city. He said "God sent an angel, his name was Rudy Giuliani."  In another interview in Miami with AventuraUSA.com, Voight said he first met Giuliani "years ago" at a movie premiere in New York City and the main reason for his support was Giuliani's poise in the wake of 9/11. In the interview, Voight revealed he and Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton "are friends" and he believes Clinton's chief competitor for the Democratic nod, Barack Obama, hasn't "proved himself in any way yet."http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jon_Voight
Voight had this to say during an interview with Radar
magazine as late as 2007:
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
If you're part of a left-wing bias and want to turn what I say in favor of someone on your agenda, I would say I don't want to talk
about it with you
While you might not hear people say, "I don't support the troops", the country and the media on the whole are increasingly caustic and critical of the president and Iraq. Does that bother you?
It's a tidal wave going in this direction. It's sad for me. The attack on George Bush I find to be reprehensible. From the beginning it was politically motivated, and it's been very successful, the disrespect for our president and for our country and for our government. I have a great regard for our government. We have all sorts of checks and balances that are afforded to us by our constitution. We have a lot of wonderful hardworking people in the government. Once it gets to be partisan, it takes the energy in another direction. There was a big movement to impeach Lincoln during the Civil War, but it is not healthy at this time when we are fighting a very vicious enemy that has made it very clear in their attacks on American embassies and the Twin Towers, and on our forces what they intend.
So I imagine you're a supporter of the Patriot Act?
Yes, I'm a supporter of the Patriot Act. I support protecting us and investigating anyone who indicates they're going to be dangerous to our country. It's one of those things; it depends on which side you're on politically. If we had these things in place we could have anticipated 9/11. We're not interested in investigating someone who's doing something appropriate. We don't have time for that. That's nonsense. I certainly hope we're paying close attention to all those people crossing our borders who might be dangerous to us. We know for sure there are cells in the United States that are ready to erupt. We know that Hezbollah is here; we know there are cells from different terrorist organizations that are here and operational and that there are others waiting too. So listen, it's a serious business. It's wartime, guys. Because we don't have a continuous attack on our shores, we can get complacent. We've got to all be alert now, we've got to be a part of it and be supportive of our troops for sure.
