James Woods Rips
| James Woods, the veteran actor, slammed President Barack
Obama on Twitter this week after the president spoke in the aftermath of
the George Zimmerman case.
“The race issues in America that have bedeviled this nation for decades could be greatly resolved with JOBS and EDUCATION and SKILLS TRAINING,” he wrote. Later, he added: “Racial integration has worked in the Armed Forces because everyone has... a job, gets training in a skill, and MUST respect the rank of others.”
His tweets were retweeted hundreds of times.
Woods, who indicated last year he would vote for Mitt Romney, took the opportunity to slam Obama’s fiscal policies.
“ALL youth of every heritage in this country would benefit from jobs and manageable student loans, NOT a bloated Welfare State,” he wrote.
On Friday, Obama spoke about his experience as a black male living in America, referring to the Trayvon Martin shooting case following the acquittal of Zimmerman, who was charged in the 17-year-old Florida boy’s death.
“There are very few African American men who haven’t had the experience of walking across the street and hearing the locks click on the doors of cars. That happens to me — at least before I was a senator,” he said.
Woods took a shot at Obama over his statement.
“The only reason people lock their car doors when Obama walks by is they are afraid he’ll tax them to death…” he wrote.
Woods, a fast-talking actor whose career spans decades, is possibly best known for his role in Sergio Leone’s gangster classic, “Once Upon a Time in America.” He also appeared in “Nixon,” “The Onion Field,” and numerous other films.
Woods most recently appeared in 2013‘s “White House Down.”
Earlier this week, Woods went on a tear against Rolling Stone magazine for its controversial choice to publish a photo of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on its cover.
“These money hungry scum will even cash in on something like the Boston atrocity for their thirty pieces of silver. Boggles the mind…” he wrote.
