[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]George Takei has had star power ever since his days starring as Captain Sulu in the original Star Trek. Since then, he has remained prominent among the masses, raking up an impressive number of Facebook fans, over 8.7 million, who love his page and his posts because of their funny and quirky content. But, there was nothing funny or quirky about what Takei said about Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, who is black. No. What he said was downright bigoted and racist.
[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]On the short description of himself on his Facebook page, Takei, who is openly gay and married to his partner of 30 years, Brad, is a “gay rights” and “marriage equality” activist. He describes himself as follows.
Some know me as Mr. Sulu but I hope all know me as a believer in, and a fighter for, the equality & dignity of all human beings.
However, it appears that his claim to stand for “dignity for all human beings” does not apply to black conservative Supreme Court justices with whose opinion he does not agree.
Following the 5-4 decision by the Supreme Court to redefine marriage as being a guaranteed constitutional right, thereby legalizing homosexual marriage in all 50 states, Takei expressed his own elation during an interview with Fox 10 Phoenix, then went on the attack against one specific justice, the black conservative on the court, Clarence Thomas.
You see, liberals claim to be about tolerance and equality and demand full acceptance and embracing of homosexuality, transgenders, illegals, etc. But, they do not extend the same tolerance and equal treatment to anyone who opposes their agenda, especially conservatives of color.
After expressing his joy regarding the Supreme Court decision, remarking how he felt fully American now, Takei’s words then took a dark, ugly, and bigoted turn as he went on the attack against Justice Thomas.
He said, “He is a clown in blackface sitting on the Supreme Court. He gets me that angry. For him to say slaves had dignity … I mean, doesn’t he know slaves were chained? That they were whipped on the back?”
Can you imagine if someone had said that Obama is a clown in blackface. There would be demands for the purging of that person from society. But, since he is a progressive, Takei gets away with his bigotry since he was simply speaking “out of passion.”
Then Takei, in true hypocritical liberal judgmental form, added even more, attempting to make it personal without realizing he was actually calling out the very party he supports.
“My parents lost everything that they worked for, in the middle of their lives, in their 30’s. His business, my father’s business, our home, our freedom and we’re supposed to call that dignified? Marched out of our homes at gun point. I mean, this man does not belong on the Supreme Court. He is an embarrassment. He is a disgrace to America.”
Before he goes shooting off his mouth and exposing his true bigoted, racist and ignorant self for all the world to see, Takei should perhaps not only read a little bit better, but also learn his history.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][vc_column_text]Here is what Clarence Thomas actually said that set off the bigoted Takei.
“Human dignity has long been understood in this country to be innate. When the Framers proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence that ‘all men are created equal’ and ‘endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,’ they referred to a vision of mankind in which all humans are created in the image of God and therefore of inherent worth. That vision is the foundation upon which this Nation was built.
The corollary of that principle is that human dignity cannot be taken away by the government. Slaves did not lose their dignity (any more than they lost their humanity) because the government allowed them to be enslaved. Those held in internment camps did not lose their dignity because the government confined them. And those denied governmental benefits certainly do not lose their dignity because the government denies them those benefits. The government cannot bestow dignity, and it cannot take it away.”
Clarence Thomas did not say that slavery was dignified. He said that the dignity and worth of an individual comes not from government, but from God. Regardless of what kind of circumstances you are facing, no one can take away your dignity or sense of worth.
But perhaps a view of the world through this Christian lens based upon the Word and love of God is too difficult for an atheist like Takei to understand.
Takei also took issue with Thomas saying those in internment camps did not lose their dignity and shared his own internment camp experience. Again, let me explain it to Takei who seems to be a bit dense.
Justice Thomas did not say that being held in an internment camp was dignified. He said that the dignity of those who faced that pain came from God. Therefore, no matter the situation, it could not be taken away. Unless, of course, you allow it to.
But, again, when you’re an atheist, that concept is undoubtedly too difficult for you to understand.
Also, Mr. Takei, the internment camp that you were made to experience was courtesy of Democrat President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the left’s beloved FDR.
Sure, Takei has had articles written about his racist comments regarding Thomas, though few will call out his remarks as racist. But, where are the calls for Star Trek to be taken off the air? Where are the calls for Facebook to terminate his page? Where are the calls for any Star Trek merchandise to stop being produced? Where are the calls for any business relationship that Takei is in to be severed because of his bigotry and hateful remarks towards a sitting Supreme Court Justice.
After all, that is what we are seeing with Donald Trump, the Washington Redskins, the Confederate flag, and even with the Dukes of Hazzard and its iconic car The General Lee simply because there is a Confederate flag painted on its top.
The reality is, there will be no call for the banishment of Takei from society. Like all progressive, bigoted, hate-filled racists, he gets a pass.
Shame on him and on all those who celebrate his hate-filled, bigoted, racist tirade against Justice Clarence Thomas.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
