Talk of “Revolution” and Texas

Chuck Norris ApprovedWhat do they put in Chuck Norris’s water? He and his ilk seem to be talking about a “second revolution” (Creative Commons License photo credit: killpack99).  At least they cite Thomas Jefferson’s famous quote on this. And Norris says he wants to be president of Texas.

“I may run for president of Texas,” Norris wrote Monday in a column posted at WorldNetDaily. “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.” The actor claimed “thousands of cell groups will be united around the country in solidarity over the concerns for our nation” and said that if states decide to secede from the union, that Texas would lead the way.

He says he made this comment in just, but later he adds:

When I appeared on Glenn Beck’s radio show, he told me that someone had asked him, “Do you really believe that there is going to be trouble in the future?” And he answered, “If this country starts to spiral out of control . . . before America allows a country to become a totalitarian country (which it would have under I think the Republicans as well in this situation; they were taking us to the same place, just slower), Americans won’t stand for it. There will be parts of the country that will rise up.” Then Glenn asked me and his listening audience, “And where’s that going to come from?” He answered his own question, “Texas, it’s going to come from Texas. Do you agree with that Chuck?” I replied, “Oh yeah!” Definitely.

He might want to check out a little demographic data. He and his cells seem to think Texas is still mostly white and conservative. Do these mostly white guys really do any thinking about societal evidence and social reality? Texas is not what its media image seems to be. A majority of Texans now, and that is a lot of folks, are Black, Latino, Asian, Native American. I would hazard the guess they would not like Norris as their “president,” just a guess?


  1. Seattle in Texas

    Just wanted to throw this up here—recently I heard former President Bush was going to present Chuck Norris with an award of some sort. When I first heard of the news I laughed, and then was arrested with a sobering pause when reality made no hesitation to set in a few seconds later…. Anyway, I was looking to see what I could find out about this event and here’s an article that reeks of racism in many ways…and when associating it with the main post above? Ugh. Here it is for anybody interested (fair warning on the stash and due ahead of time…):
