Chuck Norris Claims Progressives, Gays Have Overtaken Public School System

NorrisWalker Chuck Norris, the former Walker, Texas Ranger actor who now works mostly as a right wing pundit, penned a commentary today that claims the public education system has devolved into "progressive indoctrination camps."

According to the actor's inane argument, published at WorldNetDaily, there's a "lopsidedness" in schools that threatens to doom us all, in part because of pro-gay attitudes among young people:

What happens when the political and public educational pendulum swings from concern for the tyranny of sectarianism in Jefferson's day to secularism in ours? What happens when U.S. public schools become progressive indoctrination camps?

Dr. Jim Nelson Black, founder and senior policy analyst of the Sentinel Research Associates in Washington, D.C., wrote an excellent book, "Freefall of the American University." In it, he documents the clear biases pervading our public academic settings. Among that lopsidedness is the intentional training of students to disdain America, freely experiment sexually, forcefully defend issues like abortion and homosexuality, as well as become cultural advocates for political correctness, relativism, globalization, green agendas and tolerance for all.

One of the primary ways these educative platforms are spread is by recruiting and retaining faculty members who reflect and teach them.

Isn't it great how conservatives are always trying to paint their ideological opponents as a bunch of cultists or as braindead idiots who can't think for themselves? They're always "recruiting" or being "recruited." What a tired, senseless narrative Norris and his ilk are trying to conjure.

Norris goes on to cite the facts that fewer teachers see a liberal bias in the news and more describe Bill Clinton as a better president than Ronald Reagan as "evidence" for his argument, which proves just how seriously this man should be taken...

  2. I especially love anyone who tries to claim that [insert founding father here] supports [insert pet cause here]. There are so many issues that didn't even exist or weren't at the front of their minds when the "fathers" were creating the government. The government was created to be the shell, not the filling. All of that filling was added later.

  3. Seriously, this brainwashed midget swallowed the right wing pill, didn't he?!

  4. Apparently Chuck Norris needs a good roundhouse kick in the junk... from himself.

    Get a grip you washed-up honky.

  5. Progressives are the reason you became popular in the slightest.

    Also, Schools can't help it, your party is steeped in the idea that everything was perfect a long time ago so all innovation, change and learning is just moving away from conservative ideals. IE you live in the past!

  6. I find it interesting that he is recommending an "excellent book, 'Freefall of the American University." I can't find any sources showing that he attending a university; so, I'm unsure what his basis for comparison is.

  7. They think we've taken over the school system? Why doesn't anyone ever call them on forcing their religious beliefs into the classroom along with their hatred, bigotry, non-belief in science and women as second or third class citizens just to start!

  8. Clearly Norris has fallen off one too many truck, out of one too many cars, and been hit too hard, too many times on the head. Also he can't be washed-up, because he never was much of anything to start with.

  9. Chuck Norris is so hardcore he can take 20 guys in his mouth AND ass... all at once!

  10. Until "Remedial Sondheim" classes are instituted we haven't taken over the schools.

  11. This is my favorite:

    "intentional training of students to disdain America"

    I thought they only taught that in Canada.

  12. He is now an expert on public school system?

  13. People don't have migraines; Chuck Norris simply says something that makes no sense.

  14. Lies, lies, lies.

    Chuck honey, lies make the baby Jesus cry.

  15. Chuck Norris is so conservative... he thinks fighting crime with kung fu in Texas, the gun-lust capital of the world, is a good idea.

  16. In fact, many school boards are dominated by evangelical Christians.

    It's also Christians who really do the indoctrinating and recruiting

  17. Just another LOSER washed up 'actor' who has an 'opinion' about something he knows absolutely nothing about. Thanks idiot, now go blow your empty head off with that gun and save us 'liberals' from your inane ramblings already grandpa.

  18. Christians decrying indoctrination is ironic.

  19. Chuck Norris is the official mascot of the Texas State Board of Education. You've heard of them, correct? They're the Creationist-loving, science-hating, climate change-denying, and historical-revisionist right wing nuttery group that approves text book changes for Texas ISDs (and, as a result, for many other states' ISDs, too).

  20. Unfortunately for him the TRUTH has a clear liberal bias.

    Posted by: TampaZeke | Mar 7, 2011 4:11:17 PM

  21. Or, maybe young people just don't subscribe to the antiquated world view espoused by Chuck and his followers.

    Posted by: David | Mar 7, 2011 4:11:51 PM

  22. ...Is it just me, or is this kind of getting creepy? How can Chuck betray his fans? I mean, doesn't 90% of the hetero male population in the United states have a man crush for Chuck Norris?

    At this rate, his fans will have to start saying 'No homo' with every reference to him.

    ......You know what would make this interesting? If good ol' Chuck came out of the closet. Unlikely, but boy I wonder just how much things would change.... I would never have to listen to a Chuck Norris line ever again....

  23. As I said : what a brainless gobshite.

  24. Hey Chuck, divorce your wife and marry your fourth...or is it your fifth? Good values man! Proud out your religiousity.

    True story: A friend of mine worked on WALKER with Chuck and told me that Chuck asked him if Catholics believe in Jesus. My friend couldn't believe Chuck was actually asking that and answered, "Chuck, Catholics invented Jesus."

    Should tell you just how bright this guy is.

  25. @ David Ehrenstein "Until "Remedial Sondheim" classes are instituted we haven't taken over the schools."
    Best LOL in months! Seriously, coffee spurted from my nostrils, you don't get funnier than that. Until you came along, it was just another blue Monday.
