Won’t Someone Think of the Ignorant?

Won’t Someone Think of the Ignorant? November 17, 2011

Came across this amusing statement in Chuck Norris’ latest column, in which he bashes the mainstream media for its alleged liberal bias and expresses his concern about the effect this might have on those who aren’t as well-informed and capable of seeing through it as he is:

Like many of you, my wife, Gena, and I are avid watchers of the local, national and global news. Though we have our own preferences, we try to acquire a comprehensive understanding of the big issues. But we feel for other hard-working people (including homemakers) who don’t have the time to read and research like we do. For quite some time, if I have wanted to obtain the “complete news,” I often have to go to multiple sources.

Chuck Norris is concerned about those who are less educated and informed than he is. So am I, mostly because those people actually get to vote. And sometimes he goes to both the Worldnutdaily and Bryan Fischer’s blog. And he listens to both kinds of music, country and western — but that’s just to help his music career:

  • From the unabridged Chuck Norris dictionary

    Research (noun), listening to the crazy voices in my head

  • bbgunn

    Methinks he wears his hairpiece a little too tight.

    But we feel for other hard-working people (including homemakers) who don’t have the time to read and research like we do.

    He writes ‘other’ hard-working people because being rich, white, and Republican qualifies you as ‘hard-working’ by default, even if your only work consists of milking your wilting fame of yesteryear and finding ways to avoid paying taxes on it.

    I wonder if the “multiple sources” includes Al Jazeera.

  • Michael Heath

    Chuck was merciful keeping whatever that was to 45 seconds.

  • Now that Victoria Jackson has her own talk show he has a place to strut on his cowboy boots (platform shoes), with hat, buckle, and star.

  • dochopper

    2 thousand years from now and Chuck will be thought of as JESUS.

  • Pinky

    Chuck Norris is the type who would donate to an orchestra to get them to include a steel guitar section.

    I wonder if Chuck still enjoys those dried horse apple brownies?

    reverendrodney “Now that Victoria Jackson has her own talk show…”

    Oh, crap. We’re throught the looking glass here, people.

    dochopper “2 thousand years from now and Chuck will be thought of as JESUS.”

    When written (for the few that can still write) His name shall be CHCK NRRS.

    Even a wingnut can be right some of the time. And on this, I think he’s right. But he’s obviously ignorant of the cause: That monied persons can and will silence news that tells Republicans that the sky is blue and mentions that reality coincides with what Democrats say.

    The he said she said news is toxic.
