1. I agree.

He is living in some kind of hermetically sealed bubble there.

When you start a talk by declaring war on your fellow Americans, just how much credence would you expect your message to have in the first place? Just how patriotic is that?

He drank the Kool-Aid. Sad! He wasn't a bad actor, really. Maybe he thinks he is playing one of his roles now?

She at least appears to give a damn about people, the world, the future.

I'm already sick with a bad cold, so that just gave me another reason to worship the porcelain god.

20. Makes me wonder...

How many of those people watched the whole video? I couldnít finish it, it simply wasnít interesting or entertaining.

These people want to be babysat first, educated second. I now believe they just go from headline-to-headline, never any deeper.

Thanks for the insight!

That's one reason his daughter, Angelina Jolie, hated him.

15. This is what happens when you watch Fox, Newsmax, listen to hate talk radio, and read Brietbart

Trump will go down as the biggest traitor in America's history and yet Mr. Voight blathers on and on
about "stuff" that just isn't real.

BTW I didn't make it halfway through the video.

about ten years ago at the BreadBar in Century City. I had very long hair back then, which Wingnut Voight clearly disapproved of.

21. He needs a new category on his IMDB credits page: projectionist

When he was saying something like "Their anger has been building for a long time" it reminded me of arguments I've had with RWers, where they project so much hatred and corruption on the left and it's really some sort of weird reverse confession.

25. Not dementia so much as delusional

Guy has no sense or grasp on what is happening in the world and is living in his fantasy world he's created. The man is basically insecure and needs an authoritarian figure in his sad, sad life.

31. He's still acting on showtime's Ray Donovan

Filming the 7th season right now.

His politics have always been like this. Thatís why his daughter, Angelina Jolie, is estranged from him.

37. It is really sad to see. I think he is/was excellent in several movies: Midnight Cowboy,

Coming Home and Holes. Now, it has become almost verboten to watch anything else he ever does again.

39. I don't know exactly what made him think that way, but...

... I feel confident that it boils down to some desire by him to believe what he WANTS to believe, regardless of evidence to the contrary.

That's my generalization of right-wingers that seems to be the most consistent -- whether it's based on religion, blindly supporting "the greatest country on Earth" regardless of what it does, belief that a particular skin color is superior to others, etc.

Those kinds of people often don't care about facts unless they support their desired beliefs, and they'll accept lies about as easily for the same reason.

They have extreme personalities, but I am not so sure I consider that talent.
