Jon Voight at RNC Compares Obama to Cesar Chavez… Huh?


Hollywood's Midnight Cowboy Jon Voight is having a good time at the RNC and he is making plenty of strong commentary about President Obama and what he believes to be a strong liberal bias in the American media. That of course, includes Latin Heat Entertainment and Latinowood.

(El Editor's Note: LatinoLA.com, tambien.)

At a breakfast RNC meeting, Voight was the featured speaker and he went on and on about how terrible the Democrats and Liberals are. First he said:

"This country's been downgraded for the last four years," Voight warned, rallying his audience by adding, "We have this little window of time to do something about it -- to get it back on track."

Then he paid plenty of kudos to conservative documentary filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza's "2016: Obama's America", which has been making headlines for its impressive box office numbers.

"Go to it," Voight said of the film. "How can people vote for Obama after four years of failed policies? You know, it's because of propaganda – they're very good at propaganda … That's what we're battling here today."

Then Voight took the opportunity to offer his intelligent critique of the U.S. mainstream media claiming: "This media has been overtaken by this administration in no less a way that Cesar Chavez has taken over the media in Venezuela. It's as strong as that."

Obviously, Voight, who is well know for his right wing position as a Republican misspoke when he compared President Obama to Cesar Chavez. We assume he meant to compare him to Hugo Chavez. In both instances the comparison is false.

(El Editor's Note: Or maybe he meant Julio Cesar Chavez?)

However, you can't blame him or the rest of the GOP for this mistake, because as you know all Latinos look alike. Come to think of it, all right wing Republicans sound alike.

All this Latina editor and blogger can say is, "Que pendejo!"
