Actor James Woods has taken to Twitter to express his frustration with President Barack Obama, the Affordable Care Act and the liberal "trolls" that he says are waging war on real Americans.
"This President is a true abomination," Woods wrote from his verified Twitter account (@RealJamesWoods), linking to an article about the National Parks Service allowing an immigration rally on the National Mall despite the partial government shutdown.
The U.S. government has been in partial shutdown for 10 days after the Republican-controlled House refused to pass legislation to fund government services unless the president's health care law, otherwise known as Obamacare, is delayed or defunded. Obama has refused to negotiate over his signature domestic legislation.
In a series of tweets published before and during the impasse, the 66-year-old actor, best known for his roles in "The Virgin Suicides," "Once Upon a Time in America" and "White House Down," railed against the Obama administration and, at one point, compared the president to Hitler and Stalin.

Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009.
But unlike some other seemingly unhinged celebrities who have unleashed tirades on social media before deleting them, Woods is not backing down.
This is a promise. No troll jihad will ever stop me. I say what I mean and mean what I say. I am dedicated to my defense of America.— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) October 7, 2013
Barack Obama's petty jihad against World War II heroes is simply the nadir of politics in America. He is just vile. A small, small man.— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) October 5, 2013

The President should probably keep mum about "non-essentials" being furloughed. He could be out of a job.— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) October 1, 2013
May we all agree to cut the trolls off at the knees INSTANTLY, so we can put our energy into saving this nation from Obama?— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) September 27, 2013
Trying to reason with a Liberal is like arguing with a drunk. You endure the screeching, weather the insults, and then get to pay the bill.— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) September 27, 2013
#ObamaScare is Cash for Clunkers, but with your life in the balance.— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) September 24, 2013
A partial shutdown of a ridiculously bloated federal government is oddly ironic. What happens when nothing really happens?— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) October 1, 2013
I agree with Obama on this one... pic.twitter.com/6bGEvKJcKp— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) October 7, 2013
“I don’t expect to work again," Woods wrote in response to a follower who asked if the actor was afraid his anti-Obama tirade would kill his career in Hollywood. "I think Barack Obama is a threat to the integrity and future of the Republic. My country first.”
