Actress Ellen Barkin: American People Belong to Obama

Screen Shot 2013-02-08 at 7.41.45 AMOn Wednesday, actress Ellen Barkin announced on Twitter that as long as Barack Obama is President, the people of the United States belong to him, Twitchy reported.

The actress made her opinion known in an exchange that started when she announced that she voted for Obama to “protect” all of “his” people.

“Yes I vote Pres Obama…to protect his ppl,ALL his ppl.The poor,the middle class,the jobless…the 1’s that need our help..I vote 4 humanity, (sic)” she tweeted.

“HIS people?? Holy s**t you communists are insane,” user “Linsey” tweeted in response.

“Right now he is the President of our country.He is our leader & we are his people, (sic)” Barkin tweeted.

Conservatives gave Barkin the civics lesson she should have received in grade school, letting her know in no uncertain terms that the American people are not the property of the state, or the president.

“Conservatives know a President doesn’t own the American people but works for them,” tweeted “Nathan Duffy,” in response to a racially-charged tweet Barkin sent.

“He doesn’t have any people – Americans are a free people. That means our presidents serve us, not us them. Kings have people,” added “Teresa Graves.”
