Actor Jon Voight: The Term PROGRESSIVE IS A SUBSTITUTE FOR COMMUNIST
In a new interview, famous actor Jon Voight annihilates the left, saying that the term “progressive” was created by liberals to cover up their real ambitions for the country.
Fox News reports:
Jon Voight has had one of the longest, most impressive careers in Hollywood history, from the title role in 1969’s Oscar winner “Midnight Cowboy” to his current role on the hit series “Ray Donovan.” But Voight’s success in the famously liberal entertainment arena may be even more surprising given his political leanings: he’s a staunch conservative, and proud of it.
“There are a lot of conservatives in Hollywood, and they’re not very welcome,” Voight told the December issue of Cigar Aficionado. “It’s a big surprise that we’ve come to this juncture where people with patriotic thoughts could not find a home in Hollywood.”
Voight says the left’s current embrace of the term “progressive” smacks of something else.
“I think the word ‘progressive’ is a very devious term. It was created as a substitute for ‘communist,’” he said. “What they propose is the reverse of progress. It’s some that that does taste of communism and Karl Marx’s pernicious philosophy.”
We couldn’t agree more Jon.
