Miley Cyrus and Shia LaBeouf Are ‘Teaching Treason,’ Says Actor Jon Voight
Conservative actor Jon Voight spoke out against the fellow “Eagle Eye” actor and “Can’t Be Tamed” singer on Tuesday, accusing them of spreading treasonous sentiment among their fans.
“When you see the young people, like Shia LaBeouf and Miley Cyrus, and they have a lot of followers, young people are looking at them, what are they teaching? They’re teaching treason,”
said Voight, who spoke at Donald Trump’s inauguration on Friday.
“They’re teaching going up against the government, not accepting the will of the people on this president,” Voight continued.
On Friday, as Trump was being sworn in as ‘God Emperor’’ of the Free World, [insert sarcasm here], LaBeouf launched a protest project, “He Will Not Divide Us,” directed sternly at President Trump. The project is expected to last the next (f̶o̶u̶r̶ ̶y̶e̶a̶r̶s̶ ) eight years 😂.
A live stream camera has been set up in front of New York’s Museum of the Moving Image.
In a widely circulated video, Shia was spotted screaming in the face of a Trump supporter and chasing him or another Trump supporter out of camera view later in the video.
The public is invited to speak the phrase “He will not divide us” into the camera, “repeating the phrase as many times, and for as long as they wish,” according to a description of the project.
Cyrus posted a tear-filled video on Twitter the day after Trump was elected. However, Cyrus, who supported Hillary Clinton during the election, did say that she was willing to work with the new president. Although, I think we can call it more sarcastic than genuine.
“Anything you ever want to talk about or understand [about] the people who don’t think the same way as you … if you want to open your mind and want to open your heart, I would love to give you a key,” Cyrus said.
Donald Trump was elected, in large part, based on the premise of speaking his mind and in a sense ‘going up against the government’, and in epic Trump-branded style, launched his own custom brand of protesting. Did it have picket signs and marches? No. Instead, he used the media. But either way, he was elected on essentially the same premise that Voight is complaining about. Yes, these two privileged celebrities are acting like adult children crying and screaming in the street to every and any camera lens in the area. But this is expected… Let’s move on, folks. Everyone needs to stop being so easily offended. Voight, I agree, but move on.
