So if you're one of those folks who get "triggered", close your eyes.
George Takei called Clarence Thomas a "clown in blackface".
Now, setting aside the realization that nobody on the Left is going to call out Takei on his racism, here's my question (and me getting offensive):
If George Takei didn't like sucking cock or taking it up the ass, would anyone give a damn about what he said?
No. No they would not. No more than they gave a damn about what James Doohan thought.
Nicer take on George the Moron Takei: He's just stupid, and bitter that Shatner was a bigger star than he was. Still - did they bring out Checkov for a statement on politics? No. Are they hounding Shatner for a statement on politics? No.
So what makes Takei the politics guy for the media? Because it's their kind of politics, and he's gay. That's it. That's the criteria. He is a man who fucks other men, and the media loves him for it.
