A sad day inded. Chuck Norris, Karate Super Star. The ultimate good guy. The crime busting Texas Ranger. The Flag Desecrator?
Chuck recently wrote an article for WorldNetDaily in which he writes that the Tea Partiers find historical flags from the Revolutionary time period and fly them in front of their homes as a symbol of opposition to the Obama Administration policies.
Chuck writes “I suggest you fly some revolutionary flag in lieu of your 50 star flag over the next year or so. Post the 13-star Betsy Ross flag, Navy Jack or Gadsden flag (“Don’t Tread On Me”) or any representation that tells the story of Old Glory and makes a stand for our founders’ vision of America.”
Then he writes “If you insist on posting a modern USA flag too, then get one that has been tea stained, to show your solidarity with our founders.” WHAT? Our founders would not desecrate the flag they were spilling their blood for. We have soldiers in the field fighting for that very flag, a flag under which millions of brave young men have gone to battle under since the Revolution.
This is the same person who last year would have kicked the crap out of someone desecrating out flag. These same super patriots put everything they had the last few years into an Amendment to ban the desecration of Old Glory, but lately the Tea Partiers have come to show that they in fact hate our beloved flag. Back in August these same super patriots declared in Austin, on the steps of the Capitol, that they hated the American Flag.
Oh, but wait, Norris then writes “If you insist on posting a modern U.S.A. flag too, then get one that has been tea stained, ” The words “get one that has been tea stained” are linked to to the “WND superstore” that offers a “Tea Stained (Heritage) Mahogany 50-star Flag Kit” for $73.50.
So, this brings up a question. Does Norris really hate our American Flag, or is he riding the gravy train. Is he such a shill that he is using the Tea Partiers movement as a fund raising activity. The page on which the article appears seems to be one long upsale E-book. Look at the section after the article. More and more Anti-American drivel penned by my ex hero.
I am sure that there are many in the Tea Partier movement that have bought into the fact that a black man in the White House is going to be the ruination of the United States of America. But then what is really sickening is the hucksters who are only in it for the money. Man I hate that one of them has to be Norris.
Poor old Chuck should go back to putting his feet in other peoples mouths instead of his own. The super patriot, Huckabee supporter, now casting his lot with the fringe, jeeeshhh. Peddling
“Tea Stained (Heritage) Mahogany 50-star Flag Kit-(2 1/2 x 4 Feet)(Cotton) for $73.50” Guess his exercise infomericals ain’t bringing in enough moolah for him. Always are the folks who are out there to make a profit off of any issue.
Right there with you. I’ve tried to have reasoned conversations with tea party types, and it’s impossible. I can’t get them to give me a coherent answer as to exactly what they are for as opposed to what they are against. I’ve come to see that reason, facts, history and so forth are the tools of the enemy. Only latte drinking liberals quote facts. It’s sad to see Chuck Norris, who I had thought had more sense, has joined the marching sheep. The Tea Party looks like nothing so much as the villagers with pitchforks chasing the Frankenstein monster.
