Jon’s here, an academy award winner. A terrific guy. These people are all like-minded, like all of us

from Clint Eastwood – Republican National Convention Speech (August 30, 2012) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Shout-out to Jon Voight, who has had a prominent acting career for a span of several decades (Midnight Cowboy, Deliverance, and Coming Home are legit classics), though it has petered out as he has focused more of his energy on his right-wing political beliefs.

For a long time Jon was associated with the hard left, working for George McGovern, protesting Vietnam, and raising awareness of the cruelty of Pinochet’s dictatorship in Chile. He “came out” as a conservative during Bush’s second term and can now be seen regularly on Fox News, criticizing the President in terms even many of his fellow conservatives find unhinged.
