Chuck Norris Hearts Roy Moore

Chuck Norris Hearts Roy Moore November 5, 2012

The wingnuts are coming out in force to support unabashed theocrat Roy Moore in his bid to once again become an Alabama Supreme Court justice. Chuck Norris is the latest to endorse Moore and he’s using all the favorite, empty buzzwords that his audience loves so much:

Norris says America “is at a tipping point.”

“We need true patriots to get us out of the mess we’re in,” he asserts. “I know Judge Roy Moore, and he is a true patriot.”

Norris’ wife, Gena, adds that Moore has “fought the ACLU and liberal judges to preserve our rights and freedoms.”

Chuck Norris says, “He knows our liberty is given by God, not government.”

He also knows, or thinks, that the limits of our liberty are determined by the Bible. This is from an opinion he wrote in a custody dispute where the mother was lesbian, saying not only should she not get custody, she should be imprisoned or put to death:

To disfavor practicing homosexuals in custody matters is not invidious discrimination, nor is it legislating personal morality. On the contrary, disfavoring practicing homosexuals in custody matters promotes the general welfare of the people of our State in accordance with our law, which is the duty of its public servants. Providing for the common good involves maintaining a public morality through both our criminal and civil codes, based upon the principles that right conscience demands, without encroaching on the jurisdiction of other institutions and the declared rights of individuals.

The State may not interfere with the internal governing, structure, and maintenance of the family, but the protection of the family is a responsibility of the State. Custody disputes involve decision-making by the State, within the limits of its sphere of authority, in a way that preserves the fundamental family structure. The State carries the power of the sword, that is, the power to prohibit conduct with physical penalties, such as confinement and even execution. It must use that power to prevent the subversion of children toward this lifestyle, to not encourage a criminal lifestyle.

Bear in mind that the fact that she was lesbian had nothing to do with the case. Her sexual orientation wasn’t even an issue in the dispute, which was over her ex-husband being abusive to the kids. Moore didn’t care. He was going to make sure that lesbian knew that he wanted her liberty destroyed. It’s an absolutely maniacal opinion, citing the Bible more than once. Moore isn’t a “patriot,” he’s a barbarian.

    Oh, Moore is a patriot all right – of the kind that Dr Samuel Johnson warned about …

  • dingojack

    Boy Roy, with friend like these…


  • Chuck Norris became famous because he had some skill at karate, and could memorise lines well enough to work as an actor. I can’t help but suspect Moore is the kind of guy, if he knew even a little bit about its history, who’d think karate was Satanic. After all it was created by Okinawans and Japanese, none of whom were presumably Christians, but instead practitioners of Buddhism, Shintoism, and traditional Okinawan religion. And no doubt Moore thinks any such religions were created by Satan.

    Oh, Ed, but don’t you know, being gay IS abuse? Everyone I knew was telling me I could get visitation rights taken away from my ex because he was gay. I didn’t care about that – I cared if he was a good dad who was able to love and nurture his son (in the end, he wasn’t, but that’s another story altogether, and has nothing to do with his sexual orientation).

    As an Australian who just finished Assassin’s Creed 3, I suspect I know a fuck of a lot more about the situation and motivation behind the American revolt than norris does. That’s really kinda tragic.

    Shit, even if I said it was all a templar plot it’d still make more sense than norris

    “Her sexual orientation wasn’t even an issue in the dispute, which was over her ex-husband being abusive to the kids. Moore didn’t care.”

    Of course he didn’t care. Those children were already born. They don’t count if they’re out of the womb.

  • Wow, Chuck and his wife are actually plagiarizing Moore’s campaign commercial. How lazy is that?

    Gena: Moore has “fought the ACLU and liberal judges to preserve our rights and freedoms.”

    Commercial: Moore “stood up to the ACLU and liberal judges to preserve our rights and freedoms.”

    Chuck: “He knows our liberty is given by God, not government.”

    Commercial: “Roy Moore knows our liberty is given by God, not government.”


  • People like Moore have no place in government. He only intends to use the power he’s given to undermine the rule of law.

    I’d also say he has no place in the civilized world, but the principle of free speech prevents me from endorsing tossing him out for what he says, but we should really do everything we can as private citizens to make him feel unwelcome.

    Moore isn’t a “patriot,” he’s a barbarian.

    There is much more overlap than contradiction in those two categories – particularly in Alabama.

  • NitricAcid

    Mr. Upright- you expected Chuck to do his own writing? With three-syllable words?

    I’m impressed that Mr. Roundhouse-to-the-head managed to even read the stuff he was plagiarizing.

  • Crudely Wrott

    Chuck Norris doesn’t tell the truth.

    He pummels it until it agrees with him.

  • bradleybetts

    So in a case where the childrens’ options were:

    a) Lesbian Mother

    b) Abusive “Father”

    c) Carehome (presumably)

    His opinion was “Anything other than the homo”? What a twat.
