Now that Barack Obama is POTUS, we can see that some of the fringe set have taken leave of their senses. It’s a psychological break of some kind; a sense of doom that their world — white male privilege and domination — is collapsing. Look at aging action film and TV actor and Total Gym shiller Chuck Norris. (The Week):
“In what could be the most egregious misuse of his Chuck Norris powers” since he endorsed Mike Huckabee, said Edward Ericson Jr. in the Baltimore City Paper, the martial artist and TV star suggested that Texas was ripe to secede from the union, that he ‘may run for President’ of the Republic of Texas, and that there are thousands of “right-wing ‘cells'” ready to follow radio host Glen Beck’s marching orders.
No, it’s even more batsh*t than that. From Chuck’s column at Clown Hall:
On Glenn Beck’s radio show last week, I quipped, in response to our wayward federal government, “I may run for president of Texas.”
That need may be a reality sooner than we think. If not I, 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.
From the East Coast to the “Left Coast,” America seems to be moving farther and farther from its Founders’ vision and government.
…I’m not saying that other states won’t muster the gumption to stand and secede, but Texas has the history to prove it. As most know, Texas was its own country before it joined the union as the 28th state. From 1836 to 1846, Texas was its own republic. Washington-on-the-Brazos served as our Philadelphia. Washington-on-the-Brazos is where, on March 2, 1836, a band of patriots forged the Texas Declaration of Independence.
What a drama queen.
