Jon Voight - Democratic Party has been 'overtaken by Marxists'
President Donald Trump awarded the National Medal of Art to Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight on Nov 21st
Voight was the first recipient of the prestigious award since President Trump entered office.
According to a White House statement , Voight has been selected “for his exceptional capacity as an actor to portray deeply complex characters,”, for “captivating audiences,” and offering “insights into the richness of the human mind and heart.”
Shortly before the medal ceremony, Voight was interviewed by the Daily Mail at the Trump International Hotel near the White House, Voight spoke about California culture and his fellow artists who thrive in it.
Voight said that working in Hollywood has become increasingly more challenging for conservatives in the entertainment industry , due to a decades-long stream of 'propaganda.'
'They're programmed, you see,' 'There's been an attack with propaganda that was inserted over the years, you know. A lot of it in the '60s.'
'And people don't realize that they've been undermined. The Democratic Party's been undermined, overtaken by Marxists, and, you know, and atheists,' Voight added.
'They took God out of their platform. Can you imagine that?' he asked.
Voight is one of the few outspoken conservative Hollywood actors, who has openly expressed their support for President Trump.
