JON VOIGHT, AMERICAN PATRIOT, SPEAKS OUT AT RNC ST. PAUL MN, BOBBY KENNEDY WAS FIRST TERROR ATTACK IN USA FROM PALESTINIANS, SIRHAN SIRHAN, CLICK ARROW ABOVE FOR VIDEO.
Actor Jon Voight caused a stir at the convention when he accused the media of orchestrating the controversy surrounding Palin's daughter. "You have the ability to make it a distraction," Voight told several reporters. "I say let's put our attention on this kid with love and not make this trauma worse than it is."
American Patriot, Jon Voight went on to draw parallels between the attacks on the USA in the 60's by Anti-American "forces" of the Left and the assassination of JFK, MLK and RFK and how the Left Wing Liberals of the 60's and those of today in the streets of St. Paul MN are one and the same, anarchists that seek the destruction of the USA.
Palestinian Sirhan Bishara Sirhan shot RFK to death, between college and law school, Kennedy was a correspondent for the Boston Post in Palestine during Israel's 1948 War of Independence. Had he visited Jerusalem's Musrara district, he might have met the 4-year-old Sirhan. The war drove Sirhan's family into the Jordanian-occupied Old City of Jerusalem. The child was deeply affected by the war. He grew up with a bitter hatred of Israel and Zionists. The Sirhans were Christian Arabs. An American church sponsored their immigration to the United States in 1957. They settled in Pasadena CA. After graduating from John Muir High School, Sirhan enrolled in Pasadena Community College. He was expelled in 1964 for poor attendance and grades. For the next several years, he drifted from job to job. He wanted riches and respect but lacked the patience, perseverance and talent to achieve them. He began drinking and exploring mysticism and occult philosophies like Rosicrucianism and Theosophy. He practiced self-hypnosis and tried to move objects with his mind. Sirhan blamed America for his lack of success and hated the country for its support of Israel. His anger gradually fixed on Robert Kennedy, who promised to send 50 fighter jets to Israel if elected president. He wrote in his notebook: "Kennedy must die by June 5th" -- the first anniversary of the Six-Day War.
ST. PAUL, Minn. - Protesters attacked delegates, smashed windows, punctured car tires and threw bottles Monday, a violent counterpoint to an otherwise peaceful anti-war march at the Republican National Convention. Police wielding pepper spray arrested at least 56 people, of a self-described anarchist group called the RNC Welcoming Committee.
Palin, who is in St. Paul but has so far shied away from the media spotlight, was scheduled to address the convention Wednesday in a speech intended to acquaint her with the rest of the nation. Former Democrat turned independent Joe Lieberman and TV star and former senator Fred Thompson also spoke.
Thompson reinforced McCain's image as a maverick unafraid of standing by his principles in the face of adversity.
"The same character that marked John McCain's military career has also marked his political career ... McCain is not intimidated by what the polls say or by what is politically safe or popular," he said, before delegates erupted into cheers of "USA! USA!"
The crowd's loudest reaction of the night came when Thompson said the United States needs a president who doesn't believe that the protection of the unborn is above his pay grade - a thinly veiled swipe at Barack Obama.
Obama supports abortion rights, while McCain opposes them. In his speech to the convention, Lieberman added: "We are a nation at war. We need a president we can count on to fight for what's right for our country - not only when it is easy, but when it is hard."
