Every year or so Jon Voight comes out of hiding and reminds us why he and Angelina Jolie have such a strained relationship. Jon has tons of opinions on racism. Specifically how it’s over and it’s all just this storyline created by “the left” who are horrible evil people. Whereas racists just don’t exist anymore, I guess? Cool…
USA Today says that the commentary we’ve been waiting for on the fraught racial tensions bubbling up across America and the rest of the world is here. And that commentary is: it’s not real! Perfect! Just like Global Warming! I’ll tell those polar bears and ethnicities to stop starving themselves and putting themselves in cages.
Jon decided to voice a message to America, because he has a lot to say and I guess he thinks people give a shit? They do not. Well, conservatives do, but that’s because their celebrity roster is like: Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Geraldo Rivera, and Chuck Norris–They’ll take who they can get. So Jon gave his people a message about how Donald Trump is not a racist and how the left need to find truth.
“We must understand that this is a nation of liberty, and this president is honoring all. He is not a racist, but a man who loves his country and has every intention to make this land great again… Let us vote for this country’s safety. And may all the angered left find truth, what truth stands for.”
Jon claims that racism was “solved long ago by our forefathers” (forefathers who owned slaves) and also claims the “angered left-wingers preach love but only pollute.”
“It seems that the angered left and angered minorities want to hold President Trump accountable for past lives. You see, we have been gifted with truth and, as I see it, anger is among the old chains that were binding to the people of slavery, old wounds that still seem fresh.”
Here’s his message:

People were obviously quick to give Jon the business because that’s what happens when someone says something really goddamn stupid on the Internet. Comments include:
Wow, Jon spot on. I'll tell my African American neighbor to get over it after another Chevy Tahoe driver calls him a racial slur. He's clearly too much of a sensitive libral & should listen to others telling him how to really feel. SAD

What an absolute fucking word salad. I guess you think you're being profound and poignant, rather than sounding like a fool.

I’m so glad we got Jon Voight’s thoughts on racism. Next we need to get Kylie Jenner to come give us a dissertation on poverty. It’ll probably go a little something like this:
