Actor James Woods: 'People Lock Their Car Doors When Obama Walks By...They're Afraid He'll Tax Them to Death' By Noel Sheppard Created 07/20/2013 - 12:41pm

Emmy Award-winning actor James Woods had some harsh words for the President Friday.

Shortly after Barack Obama finished his address concerning race and the George Zimmerman verdict - which included comments about people locking their car doors when black men walk by - Woods tweeted, "The only reason people lock their car doors when Obama walks by is they are afraid he'll tax them to death":

Just curious. Does the President of the United States have any advice for other teenage boys in America? Wounded warriors, for example... — James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) July 19, 2013

ALL youth of every heritage in this country would benefit from jobs and manageable student loans, NOT a bloated Welfare State — James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) July 19, 2013

The only reason people lock their car doors when Obama walks by is they are afraid he'll tax them to death... — James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) July 20, 2013

Woods continued his rant Saturday:

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 — James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) July 20, 2013

The race issues in America that have bedeviled this nation for decades could be greatly resolved with JOBS and EDUCATION and SKILLS TRAINING — James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) July 20, 2013

Respect comes from personal industry and achievement. A common goal to rebuild the country, like the WPA and CCC, could do wonders. — James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) July 20, 2013

For those unfamiliar with Woods, his breakout role was in 1979's "The Onion Field" for which he received his first Golden Globe nomination.

He then starred in Sergio Leone's spectacular "Once Upon a Time in America" followed by Oliver Stone's "Salvador" and "Nixon."

He has won three Emmy Awards for made for television movies "Promise" and "My Name Is Bill W.," and for the animated series Hercules.

His voice has also appeared on Family Guy and The Simpsons.

Not familiar with the man, but I like the way he talks. The Preezy needs to be shamed - not that he has any shame in him, but this sort of stuff needs to be repeated loudly and often.

I still have to believe there are more folks that cringed at Bozo's words and would applaud at these statements. I certainly hope so anyway.

Most Hawaiians are probably afraid he’ll Photoshop their birth certificate.

He still can’t produce a paper LFBC to a court of law. After 5 years. What is on there or missing that could be so SCaRy? Something, for sure.

The nation should have locked the treasury and thrown away the key the day Obama was elected.

Obama is the biggest gangsta’ crook in the history of the world.

He extorted well over One Trillion Dollars from taxpayers and handed it all over to his pals, financial supporters and the muslim brotherhood.

Well - maybe not all.

Perhaps he and the Wookie did manage to build a little rainy day fund for themselves but, thanks to the death of the honest media, no one will ever know.

And he has wasted more trillions of dollars on financing handouts to his moocher supporters. Now he wants to spend trillions more on illegals and all the releatives they can find and bring into the country.

The so-called Robber barons were penny-ante pikers compared to Obama.

James Woods profiled a group of young men on a flight. From Boston to LA. August 2001. Woods notified LEO.

Woods was a stand up citizen. The young men were 9-11-2001 hijackers.

James Woods is a member of Mensa, I believe. He was discussing it with Brian Kilmeade years ago on Fox and Friends. (IIRC, Kilmeade is also Mensa.)

Woods has made these kind of comments in the past - amazing that he still finds work in Hollywood. I think he is more libertarian than conservative, but it’s still cool that he so accurately describes ol’ Big Ears.

Yup.....Woods picked up on the bad vibe he was getting on those flights & he called LEO before 9/11. Turns out the individuals he called LEO about were the Muzzi 9/11 attack teams that were doing dry-runs before 9/11. No one listened to Woods.....

Who can forget Woods and Debby Harry in “Videodrome?”

BTW, Wikipedia has a very extensive page on him. He didn’t finish at MIT, he dropped out to pursue acting.

The most recent piece of news I saw about him was a picture with his new girlfriend, who is 20 years old. He recently broke up with his long-term squeeze of seven years (she’s 26). Woods is 66.

Way to go, guy!

Woods reported some middle eastern men acting suspiciously on a flight he was on, but the FBI didn’t take it seriously. A few weeks later 9/11 happened. Later he identified a couple of the terrorists as the ones he had reported on.

"Shark" was one of the few recent TV drama series we could stand. It was very well written and interesting so of course it only last two seasons.

I am sure James Woods is quite conservative but does not flaunt it since he has to work in Hollywood. Libertarian too. He went to MIT and has a very high IQ

Besides the films cited in the article, he was in a movie titled “Cohn”, about Roy Cohn, Joe McCarty’s driviing force of McCarthy-ism. Interesting movie.

Some of each. Libertarianism has some good ideas but taken as a whole philosophy, a life philosophy, it becomes loony

James Woods seems to think that 26 years old is too old to be his girlfriend. After his last left him a few months ago (After 6 years, age 26) his new girlfriend is also 20.

Don’t give this guy too much respect.

“Well, his career is over.”

I do not believe that. Jon Voight was asked in a TV interview about concerns of new acting jobs after making conservative statements. He said that he was not worried about any new acting jobs because ‘there are plenty of conservative producers and directors in Hollywood.’ They simply are not as outspoken and vile as those on the left.

Could be. They were up to all sorts of tricks. You may be right; they were covering for him already. Nothing would surprise me regarding this. Nothing. They are definitely dodging something, or perhaps several things about it.

Well, his career is over.

He's retirement age already. But he's made comments like this before and it hasn't hurt him much. Strictly political comments don't always make big waves -- so long as you don't antagonize a whole demographic group.

Jimmy's been erratic in his political views and his personal life, but he's more right than wrong and has more insight than a lot of celebs. Maybe it has to do with his having gone to MIT. Or maybe with his father (who died in 1960) having been a career military man.

Yes, he does have an extremely high IQ. Rightwingers usually do.

One of my favorite horrors-action movies until now is VAMPIRES. He played the head of the Vatican’s US hunter team. Wished every vampire hunter would be as bad ass as his character instead of the Ruroweenie emo approach.

Superb actor, mostly in somewhat quirky and/or bad guy roles. I believe he also attended MIT. A major exception to the general rule about the average intelligence level of actors, which hovers at or a bit below room temperature farenheit.

He said on 9/11 the FBI called and told him they wanted to talk to him. He asked when and where. They told him they were sitting in their cars in front of his house.
