Chuck Norris Calls for Revolution
Usually, when Chuck Norris speaks, the world listens. But this apparently does not hold true for when he writes columns for WorldNetDaily and goes on the Glenn Beck show — in which it takes a couple days for anyone to notice.
Ron Moore, for the DC Examiner:
The call by some right wing leaders for rebellion and for the military to refuse the commander in chief’s orders is joined by Chuck Norris who claims that thousands of right wing cell groups have organized and are ready for a second American Revolution. During an appearance on the Glen Beck radio show he promised that if things get any worse from his point of view he may “run for president of Texas.” The martial artist/actor/activist claims that Texas was never formally a part of the United States in the first place and that if rebellion is to come through secession Texas would lead the way.
Today in his syndicated column on WorldNetDaily Norris reiterates the point: “That need may be a reality sooner than we think. If not me, someone someday may again be running for president of the Lone Star state, if the state of the union continues to turn into the enemy of the state.”
If Chuck’s not a citizen of the United States, by virtue of having been born in Texas, wouldn’t that give him something in common with Obama, who, as everyone knows, is actually a citizen of Kenya or Indonesia or Hawaii or someplace not American?
Also, he seems to be violating several of the tenets of Chun Kuk Do here, notably numbers 4, 5, 7, 8, and 9.
- 4. I will look for the good in all people and make them feel worthwhile.
5. If I have nothing good to say about a person, I will say nothing.
7. I will maintain an attitude of open-mindedness.
8. I will maintain respect for those in authority and demonstrate this respect at all times.
9. I will always remain loyal to God, my country, family and my friends.
He’s doing well, though, on number 10:
- 10. I will remain highly goal-oriented throughout my life because that positive attitude helps my family, my country and myself.
Philadelphia Daily News columnist Will Bunch apparently thinks Norris is a great source of intelligence and is taking this quite seriously:
[L]ess than two months into the Obama administration, right-wingers are stocking the basement pantry, piling up the shotguns and organizing “cells,” all with the help of a talk-show host who coincidentially became unhinged after he drove down the ratings at CNN Headline News, something that most people didn’t think was possible. There’s a lot to hash out in this country over the next few years but it’s becoming more and more clear who respects the Constitution, and who does not.
Or, maybe, this is just a frustrated martial artist and action movie star with some unusual thoughts running around his head?
