Legendary actor Jon Voight has broken his silence on the state of the nation and the man leading it, President Joe Biden.
“My dear friends, we’re all saddened by so much turmoil that has been brought upon this life we live,” Voight said in a video message posted to Twitter. “Can this darkness be lifted? Can we all share joy once again and see eye to eye?”
“We have a troubled nation with much horror from these criminals that are ruining lives,” Voight, a long-time supporter of former President Donald Trump and the father of actress Angelina Jolie, continued. “We must stop this now. We must bring back our nation’s safety.
“Our police must act on righteousness and guard our neighborhoods, our businesses, our children, our elderly, our veterans and our handicapped. We must protect this nation and bring back safety. We’re all feeling very unsafe,” .
Crime has become a top issue among voters ahead of the 2022 midterms, according to recent surveys.
“We’re all angry, and let’s remember why,” the Oscar-winning screen star added. “It starts with the seat of the president of the United States. He has wronged this nation’s glory. He has taken down our morals, our true gift of the land of the free.
“He must be impeached. We cannot wait another second having him dictate our path. Let us work together, get him out and make this country [what] it stands for—greatness, the land of opportunity, the land of the greatest soil our forefathers fought for,” the actor noted.
“Don’t let this President Biden tear down every inch that was sacrificed with blood, sweat and tears for his dictation of lies. I urge all to see truths, I urge all to make a difference for our children’s future, our future,” Voight said, concluding to “fellow Americans”: “This land is being broken down. But we as a nation of God’s truths shall build her up once again and bring her to her feet with glory. God bless America.”
Can we all see eye to eye?

Back in 2019, Voight used Twitter to speak out against the Democrats’ opening of an impeachment inquiry into then-President Trump.
“War. This is war,” he said in his video message. “This is a war against the highest nobleman who has defended our country, and made us safe and great again.
“Let me stand with our president. Let us all stand with our President Trump in a time of such evil words trying for impeachment,” Voight implored.
“This is a crime that the left are trying to force,” Voight said in the video. “This is a disgrace by such ignorant followers that have no truth of what truly has been brought back to our country. We have gained greatness, we have gained jobs, we have gained more than any president has promised.”
Voight went on to tear into the left, calling them “destructive.”
“Their codes of what is supposed to be are corrupt with lies, deceits, and anger, and we ask why?” Voight continued.
“We ask how can a human being have such anger towards the greatness of our country’s glory. I’ll tell you why: because for so long their anger has been growing, and with such deep pain, with no open heart, of loving and seeing the truth,” he said.
Voight went on to say Trump had delivered on the promises he made during the 2016 campaign, but that the “radical left…destroy” the work Trump has done since being elected.
