Longtime action movie and “Walker Texas Ranger” star Chuck Norris, a longtime WND columnist, says he’d be happy to work with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban for “that better future.”
Norris’ comment came on Friday in response to Orban’s message to the Conservative Political Action Conference in Texas that America needs now “more Chuck Norris.”
Orban, a firebrand who frequently has triggered liberals and progressives over and over with his comments, got a hero’s welcome at the CPAC events and pleaded with his audience not to pull punches in a culture war – going on globally – with liberals.
In America, under Joe Biden, that fight has erupted over and over with the president’s blatant promotion of abortion, the LGBT ideology, progressive government priorities like massive spending and more.
Orban explained that Hungarian state institutions define marriage as the union of one man and one woman, and he said Americans in the fight need to trust their Judeo-Christian tradition.
“We have to be brave enough to address even the most sensitive questions, migration, gender and the clash of civilizations,” he said.
His election victories – four in a row – have shown that his perspective is appreciated in his home country, and he lobbied for the same in America.
“Politics, my friends, is not enough,” he said. “This war is a culture war.”
He said what is needed now is “more Chuck Norris.”
Norris, to WND, issued a statement that, “In 2018, my wife Gena and I were invited by Hungarian Baptist Aid to visit Budapest. We love the Hungarian people and were honored to spend time with Prime Minister Viktor Orban.
“We heard he fired up conservative Texans at CPAC in Dallas this week by saying America needs ‘more Chuck Norris.’ I’m humbled and honored to fight with Orban and all conservatives to rebuild America (presently and in 2024 with a new president) from the depression (in economy and spirit) too many Americans are experiencing right now. Let’s pray and fight for that better future! We’ve done it before, and we can do it again!”
Some of Orban’s comments have, in fact, raised controversy in recent months, including his statement about Hungary not becoming a “mixed race country.”
But President Trump said he and Orban had had good discussions on various issues just recently.
“Great spending time with my friend, Viktor Orban, the prime minister of Hungary,” Trump said. “We discussed many interesting topics – few people know as much about what is going on today.”
Joseph Farah, WND’s CEO, recently wrote a column about one of the newer works about Norris, the “138 Chuck Norris Quotes You Should Read Before He Bans You From The Internet.”
He explained, “Chuck started his career as a martial artist. With three black belts to his credit, he took up training celebrities. Then he was invited to play in action films – tough guys first and then good guys.
“Then came the jokes and memes.”
But he pointed out that Norris also is twice a bestselling New York Times author.
The new project distilled his work, and came up with a list of sayings, including the following:
#138: “I gave my life to the Lord at 12. I was baptized at 12.”
#137: “Cross Country: no half times, no time outs, no substitutions. It must be the only true sport.”
#136: “I truly believe that the people who have a negative view of Trump will be pleasantly surprised when he becomes the leader of our country. I also believe he will make positive changes that will benefit the people who need it most.”
#132: “In America the schools have become too permissive, the kids now are controlling the schools, the tail is wagging the dog. We’ve got to make a change there and get it back to where the teachers have control of the classrooms.”
#130: “Unfortunately, people are re-interpreting the Constitution as a living document, and it’s not. It’s a solid-based document and it shouldn’t be played with.”
Norris, and his life values, regularly appear online. Elon Musk posted an image of Chuck Norris playing chess, with the caption, “Chuckmate,” as Musk’s fight with Twitter recently became a fullblown courtroom war.
He at times as appeared on screen with endorsements, one time complaining to an auto maker’s representative that he had been “replaced” with a truck.
A few years back, WND reported his affiliation with Glock.
After all, those internet sayings already had linked him with weaponry, with:
“When Chuck Norris donates blood, he avoids the syringe, just asking for a gun and a bucket.”
And then there’s “faster than a speeding bullet” is a Chuck Norris warmup.
Norris, says another, “doesn’t dodge bullets, they dodge him.”
And Norris “only invented guns because he wanted to make it a fair fight. For others.”
To Norris, meanwhile, have been attributed many “facts.”
For example, demonstrators in Montreal complained that police intimidated them by plastering on a police vehicle a poster of Norris toting two guns from the movie “Invasion U.S.A.”
A political-science professor, Francis Dupuis-Déri, filed the protest with authorities against nine police officers who were patrolling streets in Quebec City when the G7 summit was held.
“The complaint includes a video of a protest held June 8 in which a photo of Chuck Norris carrying a rifle in each hand can be seen attached to the door of a police van used to transport an arrested demonstrator,” the report said.
The Norrises’ Kick Start program for school students has taught tens of thousands lessons in self-defense and life.
Norris also has let loose his humorous side more than once.
He released a video that was a parody of an ad by action movie hero Jean-Claude Van Damme, who performed a split between two moving trucks.
Norris’ response was doing the splits between two flying jets
Norris has said some of his favorite internet “facts” include:
- “When the Boogeyman goes to sleep every night, he checks his closet for Chuck Norris.”
- “Chuck Norris doesn’t read books. He stares them down until he gets the information he wants.”
- “Outer space exists because it’s afraid to be on the same planet with Chuck Norris.”
Once, when asked what he thought about the phenomenon, Norris said: “My answer is always the same: Some are funny. Some are pretty far out. And, thankfully, most are just promoting harmless fun.”
Norris also downplays the notion that he’s some sort of superhero.
“I’ve got a bulletin for you, folks. I am no superman. I realize that now, but I didn’t always. As six-time world karate champion and then a movie star, I put too much trust in who I was, what I could do and what I acquired. I forgot how much I needed others and especially God. Whether we are famous or not, we all need God. We also need other people.”
Norris has been writing a weekly column exclusively for WND since October 2006.
