In comments Saturday billed as a message to the American public, “Ray Donovan” actor Jon Voight aired his political grievances for several minutes in a televised statement, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Those grievances range from (but are not limited to) Benghazi, the IRS scandal, the “targeting” of conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza, illegal immigration, the Hobby Lobby Supreme Court case, the treatment of war veterans, the chaos in Iraq and deep reservations about President Obama.

“Five years ago, I stated that Obama would take the country apart piece-by-piece, that he would cause a civil war in this country,” Voight read on Saturday in a statement on Mike Huckabee’s Fox News show. “In hindsight we can see how many things have come to pass.”

“Let us remember, let us not forget Benghazi,” he continued. “Let us not say what difference does it make. Obama found a perfect way to put this under the rug, blaming Republicans, saying that they just want to find fault with his administration. And still to this day we still not know the truth.”

Voight, the father of Angelina Jolie, has long been outspoken about his conservative-leaning political beliefs. During his Fox News appearance, he also singled out the Democratic Party on social issues.

“The Democrat party has become a very negative force … it’s more socialist in their thinking, and they’ve given young women the wrong ideas about what democracy really is,” he said.

“[Congresswoman] Debbie Wasserman Schultz is the gang leader for all the wrong information to our young women,” Voight said, “Convincing them that Republicans are stopping their liberties and freedoms of reproduction when the truth is, as the Supreme Court upheld, that religious freedoms are being infringed upon.”

Dumb Stupid voters won’t vote those republican/conservative idiots out of office, why because they hate the black President too and rather keep those fools in office. They think they’re invinsible.

  3. Every A**Hole in Washington wants to blame President Obama, I guess George Bush was a Saint, No one in Washington DC hv any Morals they all can ROAST IN HELL!!!!!

  4. The Republicans have done nothing for the American people since Obama took office. They only care about there own pockets. Voight is a close minded fool.

    Everything he said is absolutely correct. The Democratic party is in the process of destroying this country. I don’t know that the Republican party is any better, but I know that they have SOME morals, at least.

      Nah, the Republican party is not any better, they don’t know the meaning of the word “moral” (but definitely practice the art of hypocrisy very well), and continue to destroy this country with their selfish, hateful antics.

    • hahaha very funny! Moral and republicans..isn’t that an oxymoron? I put extreme emphasis on MORON!
      Thanks for the laugh though.
