Conrack Speaks

Actually, the leftist navel-gazer Pat Conroy would never say anything like this. But the man who played him in the movies, Jon Voight, did:

If, God forbid, we live to see Mr. Obama president, we will live through a socialist era that America has not seen before, and our country will be weakened in every way.

–Jon Voight, My Concerns For America, July 28, 2008

h/t: Neanderpundit.

As an aside, Voight played the lead in my personal Greatest Movie of All Time, Runaway Train.

Update: Conroy did come to his senses a few years back.

    I am inspired that there may still be hope for us in that a Hollywood type actually has come out so strongly against Obama. We need more of them to voice a similar opinion, if only because they have the ears and eyes of the young voters.
