A few days ago, the Internet’s Greatest Hero, the above-pictured Chuck Norris, made a cute little quip on the stark-raving Fox News maven Glenn Beck’s podcast. Mr. Norris, apparently woefully ignorant of his own home state’s actual legal standing, threw his (white) hat in the ring to become the next President of Texas. Because when you think of Texas, is Chuck Norris ever not involved in some way?

As if that little tidbit wasn’t juicy (read: stupid) enough, the esteemed martial arts master went ahead and posted this unsettling diatribe about not only Texas’ right to secede, but our obligation to rebel against our oppressive federal overlords. What caught my eye, besides Norris’ incredible feat of making Sam Houston sound like a cheap rabble-rousing terrorist, was Chuckles’ unfortunate usage of language most commonly used to describe Al Qaeda.
