Norris Throws Down for ‘Warrior’ Gingrich
Posted on Feb 6, 2012
Conservative power ranger Chuck Norris has come out swinging for the GOP once again—this time, he’s willing to lend his unique celebrity brand to give Newt Gingrich’s presidential campaign a boost with a memorably worded endorsement only he (along with, perhaps, a small army of savvy flacks) could compose.

The actor, an avowed Republican, explains at the outset of an epic editorial on WND that, “As a six-time undefeated middleweight world karate champion, I have a pretty good idea what makes a warrior.” In the nearly 1,400 words that follow, the fiery-spirited, flame-haired Golden Boot Award winner lays out “the trifecta of tyranny” that Newt Gingrich, his new favorite Republican candidate is facing. Namely, foe Mitt Romney’s massive funding, the dreaded mainstream media (MSM), and the ”elite power mongering” forces within the GOP party itself. As you might expect, Norris’s editorial is peppered with phrases that would make you think Gingrich is a ninja assassin under siege of a thousand enemies — not a doughy former college professor.
