Chuck Norris: America faces ’1,000 years of darkness’ if Obama wins
Monday, September 3, 2012
A video released this weekend by action movie hero Chuck Norris claims that America faces “1,000 years of darkness” if President Barack Obama is reelected.
“If we look to history, our great country and freedom are under attack,” Norris warns, standing next to his wife. “We’re at a tipping point and, quite possibly, our country as we know it may be lost forever if we don’t change the course in which our country is headed.”
The pair go on to explain that Obama won in 2008 because more than 30 million evangelical Christians stayed home on Election Day. “We know you love your family and your freedom as much as Gena and I do, and it is because of that we can no longer sit quietly or stand on the sidelines and watch our country go the way of socialism or something much worse,” Norris explains.
Quoting President Ronald Reagan, Norris’s wife Gina adds that defeating Obama “will preserve for our children this last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into 1,000 years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.”
Norris has been an outspoken critic of Obama’s since even prior to the 2008 election. He’s claimed in recent years that the Christian savior character Jesus would have been aborted by his mother if “Obamacare” were available 2,000 years ago, claimed that American progressives want to enshrine Islamic moral codes into U.S. law, and accused the Obama administration of trying to force the Boy Scouts to adopt a “pro-gay” position.
He also warned in 2008 that if Mitt Romney won the Republican presidential nomination, he’d “buy the White House.” Norris hasn’t repeated that particular criticism this election cycle.

Tea Party nitwits are such drama queens!

Reminds me of Polyester where the anti-abortion protesters carried baby dolls nailed to crosses.
...you know he's secretly gay, right?
These people are lunatics, having a black leader has totally warped their minds or whatever passes for their minds. I hope he wins BIG so they will suffer.
We are much better off under Democrat leadership. It's blatantly obvious that the Republic leadership steers the 99% of the USA off a cliff for the 1%.

What a lunatic. There is pure fiction. Not one shred of evidence exists to indicate -- taking for a moment that the Biblical story is true -- that Mary would have defied the will of God as expressed to her by the angel Gabriel and aborted the fetus who was to become Jesus. How twisted and depraved is this man?
Also, does this moron realize that Jesus was not born in the United States but in the Middle East. And, oh by the way, Israel has universal health care -- and that system won praise from none other than Shitt Rmoney.
This "1000 years of darkness" garbage is, of course, just thinly veiled code for Obama being the anti-Christ.
I'd love to know what precious freedoms they're so worried about. The freedom to force their beliefs on others? To repress others?
Now I know why Reagan closed all the Insane Asylums. They vote Republican.
Desperate call to Obama as Anti-Christ meme the Christo-fascists invoke for end times hysteria.
What is it about Regressives that they feel compelled to make outlandish predictions that never come true?
[quote] America faces "1,000 years of darkness"
I'm sure it's "darkness" that upsets Chuck Norris -- the darkness of Obama's skin.
Indeed, r14. Although ironically I have heard he prefers men of color when he hires rentboys.
I suppose Fuck Norris is worried because he and his same rug will still be around 1,000 years from now.
r8 - if you know that is true, how do we publicly out him?
Karl Rove has been pushing the idea of a 1,000 year Republican reich forever. He said all they need is is 25% of the black vote to make it happen.
Unconscious Nazi imagery? On the contrary. Conscious Nazi imagery.

"I'm having an abortion and I can't WAIT!" -- Mary to Joseph under ObamaCare
The idea that Christ could have been aborted is absolutely heretical - if he said that he should be burned at the stake!
Damn right, R14. It's a well known fact that the only reason that could possibly be for anyone to have an unfavorable opinion of Obama's performance as president is that they're racist. [eye-roll]
How exactly do you abort the savior and redeemer of all mankind? Anybody know?
At (47:09)minutes into the first episode of "The Power of Nightmares", Adam Curtis explains how exactly this scourge was unleashed into the American political process.
The Wikipedia page entry on this BBC documentary series is very useful for understanding the context of the video clip referenced in the URL to this post. The series will open your eyes about how in the bloody hell these sorts of stinking reprobates like Chuck Norris have floated to the surface of relevance in American politics today.
[quote]. It's a well known fact that the only reason that could possibly be for anyone to have an unfavorable opinion of Obama's performance as president is that they're racist.
A person can reasonably disagree on Obama's policies and have different ideas on the ideas they think the President should espouse.
The right-wing mania hysteria against him, the idea that he is taking away our freedoms or going to lead America on some foreign plan to anti-American nonsense is based on an inherent fear of a black guy with a funny sounding name being the President.
The likes of Chuck Norris and his ilk are reacting to what they perceive to be a truth promulgated by neoconservatives who have played them.
The documentary produced by Adam Curtis explains that the prior to 1981, "the conservative movement was essentially an intellectual movement it has some very powerful thinkers but it didn't have many troops." People like Chuck Norris and the Moral Majority and all the other whack job sky fairy club believers are the troops in political / ideological battle in which we find ourselves engaged.
The notion of religion being mobilized for redeeming the country and creating a moral regeneration is a strategy promulgated by neoconservatives to counter the failure of the earlier "cold war" ideology. Fear is the most powerful tool used to control society. The ability to leverage fear is explored very thoroughly in this phenomenal documentary.
Of interest in the opening is the statement that "at the heart of the story are two groups, the American neoconservatives and the radical Islamists, both were idealists that were borne out of the failure of the liberal dream to build a better world, and both had a very similar explanation for what caused that failure."
If we made it through 9 years of 'Walker, Texas Ranger' I think you can make it through four more years of Obama, Chuck.
Norris is bald. He wears a taupe. He dumb as a box of rocks. Unfortunately, he gay too. I hear he's quite ill so I doubt he will be around all that long.
These people are really, truly and absolutely deranged. I swear it. Here we have a president who is doing his best (against insufferable odds) to make life better for the average American, and these people like Norris keep spewing out hate-filled diatribes, one after another. It literally boggles the mind. What has happened to this fucking country?
dumbed-down since reagan's era. on purpose.
The passing of the old order?
I wonder if that's what these older white men are afraid of?
Guys like Ted Nugent, Chuck Norris, Clint Eastwood etc.
Are they bothered by the fact that a black man is President? I think that may be at the source of some of these outbursts.
R33, Clint's wife is half black, so I don't think that is the case with him.
It might be with the other two, though.
I also think Clint supports same sex marriage.
But that's just it. It is NOT one deranged individual. Republicans have been talking this way for forty years. The shared values a republic requires have been absent ever since the Bushes and Karl Rove became powerful.
I can see where he is coming from because I felt the very same antipathy toward George W. Bush when he was facing re-election.
And look, we are all still here, eight years later.
If these Tea Partiers along with Norris and his ilk cannot grasp that the ship of state will sail on pretty much whoever is in the White House, then they are merely full of hyper-partisan rhetoric.
Tea Partiers cannot grasp the sheer *magnitude* of the Republican fuck-up during GWB's eight years of misrule. It took Bush eight years to fuck it up and it will take AT LEAST eight years for the Democrats to fix it, and probably longer.
I have not forgotten the GOPs slavering fealty to the Bush Administration and his neo-con nincompoops, and I pray the voters in the middle will not have forgotten too when the cast their votes.
The Republicans have not served enough penance for the damage to America they caused to suit me. I think four more years of Democrats in the Senate and White House will help.
Fuck Chuck Norris.
he would like that.
Nothing to see here folks, just another old white man scared of the dark.
Has Clarence Gilyard, Jr. weighed in?
E37 we were lucky. Bush was lazy.
The harm a motivated individual can do in the presidency is beyond imagining.
Of course 1,000 years is ludicrous.
Nothing short of nuclear war can't be corrected in a relatively short time.
But that's an issue with Romney. He might well recklessly use nuclear weapons since he can make himself believe ANYTHING.
He will always be Butt Fuck Chuck to me now :)
Anyone notice their KKK robes hanging on the wall on the back right?
Rethugs are such drama queens. No wonder most of them are closet fags. "1,000 years of darkness," says Miss Chuck. Did he swoon after he said it? Wrap his caftan around his head?
What? No "I once saw Chuck Norris scissor kick..." jokes?
Actually is was Norris' wife saying "1,000 years of darkness." But regardless, where the hell did they come up with something so overly dramatic? One thousand years? Seriously? A bit extreme don't you think?
How is anyone even listening to what he says when I cannot even take my eyes off of that thing on his head?
Wouldn't it, at most, be only 4 years of darkness?
If #shitstainonhumanity was a trending topic on Twitter he'd be up there with KKKarl Rove
Wish someone would out him.
This racist white man needs to sit his old ass down. Better yet he should suck on a young white man's penis.
I have to chuckle because about two weeks ago one of my freeper former classmates and FB "friends" posted a quote that said "WE have Chuck Norris and Clint Eastwood and they have Roseanne Barr and Michael Moore. Enough said."
I want to dig up that post and ask how it's going with her two celebrities - one who talks to an invisible chair and the other who warns about 1000 years of darkness.
[quote]"WE have Chuck Norris and Clint Eastwood and they have Roseanne Barr and Michael Moore. Enough said."
Right, because the latter two are all "we" have. I like how your buddy picks the two easiest targets to make her dumb point... which really is such a dumb opinion.
Isn't Chuck himself Hispanic?
I know R56. I thought of writing something to that effect and listing about a dozen other well-respected Democrats but then figured it would serve no point.
But I love the irony that the two she picked have been labeled a tad whacko even by many in her own party in the last week.
[quote]But regardless, where the hell did they come up with something so overly dramatic? One thousand years? Seriously? A bit extreme don't you think?
That's why, personally, I love it when has-beens like this are given full attention, since what they're saying is so idiotic and so over-the-top. The more people like this become the public face of the Republican Party, the better I like it.
[quote]since what they're saying is so idiotic and so over-the-top
That sounds like a perfect description of Limbaugh, Hannity and all of the Fox News universe. Do you think that irrationality has been bad for (rethug) business?
It's their weapon of choice.
Is Chuck's wife Asian?
Or is it too much plastic surgery?
Never liked him, never thought he was sexy in the least. And now I know why...he's a great big douche!
Douçhè ... Extraordinaire
And rabidly anti-gay.
Don't forget that.
Not only against gay marriage, but against gays in the Boy Scouts.
The former Gena O'Kelly married Chuck, who is 28 years her senior, when she was 30. Stuff like this skeeves me out to no end. Something else he has in common with Eastwood, though it's not as bad as Eastwood's 35 years on his wife. This, of course, is something that many men in the party of privelege aspire to.
Because r49, these people actually believe he is the anti-christ, hence the 1000 years of darkness.
They are in fact crazy fundie nutjobs.
R11's comment is witty, but sad because it's the truth. Combine Reagan's insane voters with Nixon's racist voters and we end up with a party that remains viable 900 years after civilized people abandoned their ideas.
I believe Chuck's dad was half native american. His dad fought alcoholism, but lost.
More actors who espouse the repugs: Gary Sinise, Jon Voight and Kelsey Grammer. The latter feels he didn't get an emmy nom this year, because he's a republican.
Thanks for "The Power of Nightmares" links R23/24. That's really excellent.
He must have checked the inventory records and noticed that the Obamas have not ordered the Total Body Gym. Or, if they did they chose the base model and not the Whore Christie Brinkley ass-tightened deluxe version.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
