He’s right, and John Wayne and a whole host of late and former Hollywood actors (real Americans) would agree with him.
Of course the commies will cry foul and say that they’re not really for full blown marxism, but when have you known communists to tell the truth about their politics? In the end, it’s all statism, which leaves a destructive trail of coercion and destitution as they seek over and over again to create their utopia on stacks of dead bodies and gulags full of rotting prisoners.
JON VOIGHT: ‘PROGRESSIVE’ A ‘DEVIOUS’ TERM, EQUATES TO COMMUNISM
Actor Jon Voight describes his decades-long career as a Hollywood conservative in a new interview, where he also discloses he feels the political left uses the term “progressive” as a substitute for “communist.”
“There are a lot of conservatives in Hollywood, and they’re not very welcome,” Voight says in Cigar Aficionado’s December issue, Fox News reports.
Explaining his dismay that actors with patriotic thoughts have a difficult time finding a home in the industry, the actor then takes aim at the left’s use of progressivism.
“I think the word ‘progressive’ is a very devious term. It was created as a substitute for ‘communist,’” he says.
“What they propose is the reverse of progress. It’s some that that does taste of communism and Karl Marx’s pernicious philosophy,” adds the 76-year-old Oscar winner.
Voight also says he thinks it is important for people in need to reach out for help, and that people should be there for others in need, in addition to opening up about his relationship with his daughter, Angelina Jolie Pitt.
NOTE: The Left is very ingenious (in a devious kind of way) when it comes to labeling themselves, their programs and their opposition. They are not ”progressives” however, they’re actually anti-enlightenment regressives, post-modern reactionaries, who would like nothing better than to disenfranchise you from your wealth (property rights) and your liberty.
