Chuck Norris doesn’t think that homosexuals have any place in the Boy Scouts of America and says that recent whispers calling to topple the “century-old policy” keeping them out are completely un-American.
It gets better. According to TMZ, Norris seems to think that President Obama is the source of his troubles on this front. In a column contributed to AmmoLand.com titled “Is Obama Creating a Pro-Gay Boy Scouts of America?” Norris, a Republican activist, criticizes a recent announcement by BSA official James Turley regarding the status of homosexuals within the BSA. Turley, also global chairman and CEO of the accounting firm Ernst & Young, recently said he “will work from within to seek a change” in order to allow gay scouts and gay scout leaders.
In the article, Norris goes on to detail a massive Left-Wing conspiracy basically aimed “to turn your Boy Scout son gay,” notes Slade Sohmer of Hypervocal.
You can read Chuck Norris’s article here, but it’s very long, so let me summarize. He sews together disparate threads, events, dates, and a lot of other TL;DR stuff into a beautiful tapestry of conspiracy. Apparently everyone who disagrees with Chuck Norris is in on this thing together, or at least that’s what you’d be tempted to gather from the post.
My favorite part is how almost every single sentence ends with a question mark. In terms of basic rhetoric, what he’s doing there is setting you up. He doesn’t so much take a stand as he allows you to “discover” the truth for yourself thanks to his careful guiding. He asks you questions that you must ask yourself so you can set yourself apart from all the other bluepills walking around. Or something.
OH! I do agree with this part. “The BSA is as integral of a part to American life and culture as hot dogs, baseball and Grandma’s apple pie.” I love pie.
Let’s be real. It’s not like anyone can stop Chuck Norris from doing or saying whatever he wants. But come on, Chucky. Stop yourself sometimes!
Do you think his comments regarding the BSA are over the line?
Also, how far through his article did you get?
