Despite rising to prominence as a countercultural icon of the ’60s and ’70s, with roles in films like Midnight Cowboy and Coming Home, canvassing for George McGovern, and publicly protesting against the Vietnam War, Oscar winner Jon Voight has, in recent years, morphed into a right-wing fomenter. He’s lashed out against the American public for criticizing then-President George W.

But this is, without question, his most politically puzzling move yet.
