If a white man said something like that against Barack Obama the crap would never stop hitting the fan. But seeings how this cat is Asian and a goober gobbler to boot, I reckon the liberal media will let it slide just this once.
Noting Thomas’ language about slaves and people in internment camps not losing their humanity or dignity, Takei tore into Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, the only black member currently sitting on the high court, but not the only member that dissented, which makes it more troubling.
Being a black conservative/republican takes courage Mr Takei. I know the LGBT community has tried to hijack the civil rights movement and many in the black community have left the homosexual community alone, even refraining from calling them derogatory names used in the past. But when you decide you want to call out one of our own because he didn’t agree with your lifestyle, then war has started.
The many pressures black republicans face on a daily basis from the liberal left, media, voters and lawmakers are more than you will ever know. You will never know what it was to be black or being constantly threatened with loss of life or some hyenas act toward your family members because of you have decided to think differently for the good of your family’s future. You took the easy way out because you were “just so angry” Thomas didn’t flow toward your beliefs.
By anyone’s standards George Takei’s remarks are racist.
“He is a clown in blackface sitting on the Supreme Court,” Takei told Fox 10 in Phoenix on Wednesday. “He gets me that angry. He doesn’t belong there.”
Somehow in his intellectual dishonesty he thinks because he is gay and an actor that it gives him leeway to make horribly racist remarks and then attempt hide behind some theater excuse. Only some one that is extremely selfish could make such a horribly racist remark and then double down on it by making an intellectually dishonest excuse. The saddest part of this whole thing, Thomas gave an intellectual and thoughtful discussion about race and it went right over the head of hyper emotional George Takei.
Check out his statement here:
Evidently George Takei is totally incapable of doing exactly what he yells at others for not doing….and that is walking a mile in another man’s shoes.
“In a passage that was met with incredulity,”
Why should there be “incredulity?” Thomas is EXACTLY RIGHT. Dignity is a character virtue held by the possessor only, and is a God given possession. Like he said, “Dignity can no more be given by the government than taken by the government“.
Anyone who actually READ Thomas’ text would immediately recognize that he values intrinsic human dignity of ALL PEOPLE, and does not subscribe to the nonsense that “dignity” is somehow endowed on some men by OTHER MEN.
The reason why this Takei is so sensitive, is because of his past hurts that he carries as His family was put in an internment camp. He is still hurt and angry over that. He completely doesn’t get what Clarence Thomas said, it was too deep for Takei. The left has never liked Clarence Thomas because he is conservative and he isn’t black enough for them.
It’s sad when an actor who was as popular as this man allows his rage against those who disagree with his agenda come out in public. Diminishes him and everyone in his movement.
