This is a sad story for me. There was once a time when I respected Chuck Norris. The martial arts expert and actor had built a pretty good reputation and was generally thought of as a nice guy who loved his country. But the older he gets, the more he destroys that image.
It looks like the 69 year-old actor no longer supports his country now that Barack Obama is president. I don't know whether it's because he is an African-American, because he's a Democrat, or both, but Norris is now talking about committing sedition and encouraging others to do the same.
Norris wants Texas to secede from the United States -- violently if necessary. He claims to know of "thousands of cell groups" who are united against Congress and President Obama. He actually believes that Texans are ready to rise up against the federal government. I guess he's forgotten what happened last time that was tried.
Making matters even worse, it looks like he also has delusions of grandeur. Once Texas secedes, he sees himself as becoming president of the new country. Norris used to be a right-winger, but now he's gone far beyond that. I think he's beginning to lose his mind.
There are many Texans who like President Obama and many who don't, but they are all good Americans who love their country and would never dream of fighting against it. Texas currently leans Republican and has for a while, but it would be a serious mistake to think Texans are ready to take arms against the federal government.
It's sad to see a man like Chuck Norris disintegrate so publicly and completely.
