Jon Voight: Yet Another Persecuted Hollywood Conservative

News & Politics

So apparently we're all supposed to hate Jon Voight, all us pinkos. Hope you got the memo. I'd missed it and so thank K-Lo for the heads-up. As she intones, "It's tough to be conservative in Hollywood." Apparently Jon Voight is a conservative and therefore has suffered worse than anyone HUAC ever went after back in the day. See, look at Voight's IMDB page. It is a record of indescribable human suffering. Waterboarding would be kinder.

Though, on the other hand, the man was in Anaconda of his own free will. So I have no sympathy. None.

This all seems to have some damn thing to do with Voight's recent op-ed in the Washington Times, which really is awesome and excellent all-around, but this brief extract gives the full flavor:
