religious right, Virginia Tech

When faux-martial artists get religion…

…you know times are weird.

As if his lame acting and faux-philosophizing aren’t enough to make it obvious, there is still more evidence that Chuck Norris is a fucking tool. This week in World Net Daily he blames the Virginia Tech shootings on those who wield the baton of the secular progressive agenda. More specifically, he blames these deviants for “teach(ing) our children they are nothing more than glorified apes” and implores us to “to return and call out to the God of our founders, Jesus Christ“. He goes on:

If we are ever to restore civility in our land and our schools, we must turn back the clocks to a time when such shocking crimes didn’t even exist – when we valued life and respected one another much more then we do today. We must use the Bible (humanity’s blueprint for life and ”bluebook” for value) to retrain our youth about theirs and others’ value as children of God, made in His image. We must each contribute to rebuild the infrastructure of our homes, schools, and society upon respect.

Deferring to current trends that require us to call all dead people “heroes”, he does that, too. Sorry Chuck, while perhaps a few of the victims sacrificed themselves for others, more than likely most of them just got shot and are simply dead. That doesn’t make them heroes, just dead, plain and simple. Dead because some psychotic jackass that should not have been able to get his hands on guns did, not because evolution is taught in schools and certainly not because we haven’t returned to some weird Biblical nirvana that would make Norman Rockwell appear hedonistic.

This from a guy that made his money by pretending to beat people up. I suspect he has suffered one or two breakfalls too many in his career and it’s beginning to show.

  1. So some insane guy goes on a murderous rampage and kills thirty-two people and someone decides “hey, we need to get Chuck Norris’s take on this” !? Is he only known for inciteful commentary south of the border and we’ve just missed it all this time ? For that matter has he actually read the bible? Specifically the bits with the horrible wars and killings performrd by the godly. Maybe that stuff is only in my copy.

  2. Indeed. When Norris says “…we must turn back the clocks to a time when such shocking crimes didn’t even exist – when we valued life and respected one another much more then (sic) we do today,” I have to ask: When was that, exactly?

    Before semi-automatic handguns? Before gunpowder? Before swords, or spears? Before clubs, rocks, the thighbone of an antelope?

    No, wait, it was before people! Before the Bible, too, then. So… applying Norris’s brand of twisted logic, and ignoring (for the children!) any inconvenient facts, we could go back to a time before the Bible and start fresh? Works for me.
