Too Much Kung Fu To The Head
Man, I loved those “Missing In Action” movies when I was a kid. But I’m not allowed to have any heroes, because they all become paranoid, insane and senile:
Actor Chuck Norris, who has become a prominent conservative activist, published a column on the conspiracy theory website WND that told readers not to trust what the federal government has been saying about a military training exercise known as Jade Helm 15.
“The U.S. government says, ‘It’s just a training exercise.’ But I’m not sure the term ‘just’ has any reference to reality when the government uses it,” Norris wrote in his column. “Whatever Jade Helm 15 actually is, I think it is more than coincidental that the FBI director just confessed in February that the presence of ISIS can be felt in all 50 states of the U.S. and that the Pentagon is suddenly running its biggest military training exercise with every branch of the military across seven Southwestern states.”
“If Washington wants to cool the embers of controversy, then it should quit stoking the fire, as with the posting of a map of Jade Helm 15 ‘just’ exercises that label some areas of the country, including Texas, as ‘hostile,'” Norris wrote. “I have an idea: If the government insists on running expanded military ops across seven Southwest states, why doesn’t it move all that ‘military training’ south and protect our borders at the same time?!”
“Friends, when it comes to freedom, we must question, verify and vet everyone and everything,” Norris wrote. “We must never check our brains or blindly trust, especially the government. Rather, we must fight until our dying breaths for liberty, especially when it appears those in power are trying to knock down Old Glory.”
Overblown jingoism. That’s the right wing for you. Gotta get in those references to liberty and the flag like a good fascist.To tell you the truth, I’d welcome a hostile takeover of Texas. Enough nonsense has come from that state.
