Jon Voight Slams Rise in Anti-Semitism from 'Liberal Non-Thinkers' - WATCH
Conservative actor releases new video to condemn left-wing attacks on Jewish people
Legendary actor Jon Voight has spoken out to condemn "liberal non-thinkers" for fueling a rise in anti-Semitic attacks in the United States during the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Voight, a rare conservative voice in Hollywood, released a video message to call out the Left for pushing anti-Jewish sentiment.
In a video published on Twitter, Voight blasted “liberal non-thinkers” for allowing anti-Semitism to flourish, calling on them to look at the “horror” of what they perpetuate.
“How do I approach this matter?" he started.
"How can we see the truth? What’s wrong with everyone?" the Midnight Cowboy actor asks.
"Can’t you see this horror, the horror, attacking Jews?"
"I’m sick and tired of you followers, you liberal non-thinkers who only follow and bash and don’t see what the truths are,” Voight continues in the video.
"The Jews have been attacked for centuries, Hitler took down millions of innocent Jews and babies and put them in gas chambers.
"What is wrong with you all?
"How dare you attack the righteous souls of God’s highest truths, in our own streets of Beverly Hills.
"What are you? You liberal fools.
"That’s right, fools,” he continued.
"What have you been taught to do?
"Ruin lives, steal, distort the idea of freedom?
"Freedom is the American dream," he declares.
"The Jewish man was taught to love, honor, and respect the morals of the Ten Commandments.
"What are you liberals teaching? Taking down Israel?
"You claim to be good, you’re a disgrace to this planet Earth.”
Voight concluded by pledging that America “as a nation” will stand with Israel and protect “God’s land.”
"We, we as a nation, will stand with Israel and we will not allow your barbaric words of injustice to destroy God’s land,” the Acadamy Award-winning actor said.
"His holy land where Jesus crossed over.
"We and God will take down anyone who will destroy any innocent soul.
"The power of God.
"You anti-Semitic fools will pay the price when God intervenes because no man will destroy God’s land, Israel, the holy land of miracles and prayer. God Bless.”

According to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), up to 17,000 posts on Twitter positively referenced Adolf Hitler between May 7 and May 14 prior to the cease-fire agreement between Israel and Palestine.
ADL has documented disturbing antisemitism on multiple platforms — from Facebook and Twitter to TikTok and Instagram – with messages including explicit praise for Hitler, promoting tropes about Jewish control and demonizing all Jews.
Extreme antisemitic and anti-Zionist content can be found across a wide variety of channels calling for the destruction of the Jewish state, including posts that state: “GAS THE KIKES RACE WAR NOW.”
An analysis of Twitter in the days following the recent outbreak of violence showed more than 17,000 tweets which used variations of the phrase, “Hitler was right” between May 7 and May 14, 2021.
ADL has also seen an increase in on-the-ground activity that demonizes Israel and that has crossed at times into antisemitism.
In a tweet on Sunday, actor Sacha Baron Cohen called out Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey for failing to regulate anti-Semitic content.
"The surge in antisemitism on the streets is fueled by antisemitism on social media,” tweeted Cohen.
"Why do you allow #HitlerWasRight ?!
"Those who celebrate the Holocaust aim to perpetuate another."
