>I don’t usually jump when Chuck Norris says “jump.” I like how he rounds up the bad boys on “Walker” with his karate-style kick fighting on TV, but I doubt this knuckle-head knows much about politics and international affairs – at least not more than you and me.
Now that I’ve taken it out on poor Chuck, I’ll tell you a secret. Chuck doesn’t write his own column on Townhall. He has a ghost writer. Yeah, he approves the content because he is a conservative by nature. He’s a really good man who wants a voice, and that’s how people like Chuck get along. They hire their own PR man who doubles as a political writer. I’d like that job, in fact…if some wonderful but vapid actor would pay me ten thousands bucks a year I’d write 50 to 100 conservative articles just for him and he could put his name on them.
Back to the current evil being exposed. This time it’s Chuck exposing Senator Lieberman for what he is – a two-faced politician who loves living off the taxpayer dole as a middle of the road senator. Some say these middle-of-the-roaders are actually doing us all a favor. If he couldn’t wear his liberal mask once in a while he would not get elected. Fine, I hope we conservatives can put him into a retirement home in the 2012 elections.
Here’s the article, one where every one of us detected evil lurking. Any time a country like Egypt or Iran pulls the Internet – and that includes Facebook, Twitter, and all of the other social media, you’ve got trouble, trouble, trouble. In Iran, it dissolved the riots in the streets in 2009. The freedom loving people of Iran had it going for awhile, but then the mass murderer bad man Mamoud Ahmadinejad pulled the rug out from under them and they couldn’t communicate.Thus, he and the Musslem Brotherhood are still in power in Iran.
But Egypt was another story. It really angered me when the government thugs went to the streets at the behest of that dictator Mubarak. If ever there was a bad dude, he’s it. Even if he’s not as repressive as Anwar Sudat was or Nassar. The poor Egyptian people don’t know true democracy because they have been ruled for 5,000 years by wicked Pharaohs and madmen like Sudat whom the U.S. courted because we saw it in our interests.
I hope the day has come – and I doubt it because Bark Obama is as wicked as Bush and the other American presidents – that we can end the Afghan war, stop giving foreign aid to Egypt, Israel and ever other country on the face of the globe and stop getting into those wars that only help the banks. My hope and my prayer is that Obama will not pull the Internet. He would ruin our country. We do one heck of a lot of business through the Internet. It would be a suicidal move if he even suggested doing so, but you can count on it. He has seen how people were manipulated in Egypt. How the Muslim Brotherhood is “nicely” taking over the eruption of violence and revolution, and how easy it was to get people out on the streets through the Internet. And how much more difficult it would be if he could eliminate Internet and telephone conversation.
You see, the advantage a dictator in the U.S. would have is this: when Mubarak took control of the Internet, people were still getting messages via Twitter because all they had to do was place a telephone call to Twitter from Egypt and Twitter would place this info on the television or on the still alive American Twitter and the word got to the Egyptians when to come onto the streets. Actually, they never left the streets.
Here’s the great Chuck Norris column:
