In a two-minute video posted on his official YouTube channel, which also includes work-out tutorials and promotional appearances for “The Expendables 2,” Chuck Norris and his wife Gena warn of a “growing concern” that the America we know can be lost forever if Obama is reelected.
In the video, Norris and his wife Gena quote Ronald Reaganâs âfreedom is never more than one generation from extinctionâ speech, which continues to say that, should America slip away from freedom, our children will âtake the first step into a thousand years of darkness.â
âIf we look to history, our great country and freedom are under attack,â the actor says. âWeâre at a tipping point and, quite possibly, our country as we know it may be lost forever if we donât change the course in which our country is headed.â
Coupled with the plea to vote out Barack Obama and the warning that our country âmay be lost foreverâ if we donât change tracks, the implication is clearâ re-electing Barack Obama could lead to the next dark age, writes The Blaze.
Chuck also says “our great country and freedom are under attack,” while Gena adds that 30 million evangelical Christians failed to vote in 2008, resulting in Barack Obama winning the presidency by 10 million votes.
According to The Huff Post, in January,Â Norris endorsed Newt Gingrich for president.Â In May, after Gingrich dropped out of the race, the “Walker, Texas Ranger” actor offered his support to Romney in an article penned for NewsBusters.
“I believe that Mitt has the skills and organization to defeat Obama and stop his fundamental transformation of America,”Â Norris wrote in an anti-Obama article which invoked the ideals of Abraham Lincoln. “We all know what four more years of increased socialistic decisions would do to our country.”
âPlease stand with us,â Chuck asks viewers in closing.Â âLetâs unite for God and country, and may God continue to bless the United States of America.Â See you at the pollsâŚâ
Twitter responded with commentary and a searchableÂ #1000YearsofDarknessÂ hashtag whileÂ some websitesÂ deemed Norris âkind of crazy.â
“Chuck Norris wants to roundhouse kick socialism in the face,” reads the headline of oneÂ blogÂ discussing the video, referencing Norris’s classic martial arts move, the roundhouse kick.
“Maybe he took one too many kicks to the head,” commented one blogger onÂ Seattle Post Intelligencer.
Another celebrity to recently show his conservative loyalty was actor Clint Eastwood, who made a speech at the Republican National Convention last week, urging voters to elect Mitt Romney, who he describes as a “businessman,” to “take over,” says The Christian Post.
