    Progressive activist George Takei has some words for the Bernie supporters who have foresworn voting for Hillary Clinton should she become the Democratic nominee.

    “At stake is nothing less than the very soul of our nation,” he says in a video address. “So I’m asking Democrats out there to take a pledge, along with me: ‘Vote Blue No Matter Who.'”

    Takei called Clarence Thomas “a clown in blackface.” Amid a backlash over this insult, he doubled down: “I feel Justice Thomas has abdicated and abandoned his African-American heritage by claiming slavery did not strip dignity from human beings.” Takei the would-be racial arbiter eventually apologized, although he still thinks Thomas is “deeply wrong.”

    I have no time for Takei- he's a hater. I may need to vote for Trump now.

    Did any Republican candidate attend a party thrown in their honor by the Sultan of Brunei who passed a law to stone gays to death?

    Did any Republican Candidate accept $56,000 in jewelry from the Sultan of Brunei who passed a law to stone gays to death?

    Did any Republican Candidate accept $1,000,000 in cash to their family foundation from the Sultan of Brunei who passed a law to stone gays to death?

    Here's the Democrat who did:

    Well supporting Hillary is the equivalent of supporting Hugo Chavez of Venezuela. Total control over the people with hyperinflation keeping us down on the farm while Wall Street remains super rich.

    Oh, but you do have time to steal from someone else and present it as your own work. You are so fucking full of shit. That you might vote trump hardly seems a threat, rather simply in line with your thieving nature.

    But George a hater? Really now. What makes him a hater, that as a gay man he was defending equal marriage rights or that as a Japanese-American man interned by his own government that he reacted harshly to a black man finding that a government does not strip a man of dignity while enslaving him?

    George Takei Calls Justice Clarence Thomas A ‘Clown In Blackface’ Over Marriage Equality Dissent

    the “Star Trek” actor insists that his comment was not racially motivated.

    During an interview with Fox 10 Phoenix, Takei, who is gay, discussed the Supreme Court’s recent landmark ruling to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide. Takei said he was “angry” at Thomas, who dissented to the decision, for his position on the issue.

    “He is a clown in blackface sitting on the Supreme Court,” said Takei. “He gets me that angry. He doesn’t belong there.”

    In his dissent, Thomas, who is black, wrote that “human dignity cannot be taken away by the government,” adding: “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.”

    Takei, whose family was held inside a Japanese internment camp during World War II, took issue with this logic.

    “For him to say slaves have dignity, I mean, doesn’t he know that slaves were in chains? That they were whipped on the back?” Takei said. “My parents lost everything that they worked for in the middle of their lives, in their 30s. His business, my father’s business, our home, our freedom and we’re supposed to call that dignified?… This man does not belong on the Supreme Court. He is an embarrassment. He is a disgrace to America.”

    In the wake of the interview, Takei has been slammed for what has been called a “racist” comment — an accusation that the 78-year-old fiercely rejects.

    On Thursday, he wrote on Facebook:

    A few fans have written wondering whether I intended to utter a racist remark by referring to Justice Thomas as a "clown in blackface."

    "Blackface" is a lesser known theatrical term for a white actor who blackens his face to play a black buffoon. In traditional theater lingo, and in my view and intent, that is not racist. It is instead part of a racist history in this country.

    I feel Justice Thomas has abdicated and abandoned his African American heritage by claiming slavery ...


    https://www.facebook.com/georgehtakei/posts/1299475283415255
    ...I recently was asked by a reporter about Justice Clarence Thomas’s dissent in the marriage equality cases, in which he wrote words that really got under my skin, by suggesting that the government cannot take away human dignity through slavery, or though internment. In my mind that suggested that this meant he felt the government therefore shouldn’t be held accountable, or should do nothing in the face of gross violations of dignity. When asked by a reporter about the opinion, I was still seething, and I referred to him as a “clown in blackface” to suggest that he had abdicated and abandoned his heritage. This was not intended to be racist, but rather to evoke a history of racism in the theatrical arts.

    ...my choice of words was regrettable, not because I do not believe Justice Thomas is deeply wrong, but because they were ad hominem and uncivil, and for that I am sorry.

    I often ask fans to keep the level of discourse on this page and in comments high, and to remember that we all love this country and for what it stands. even if we often disagree passionately about how to achieve those goals. I did not live up to my own high standards in this instance...

    This is extremely stupid, even for this geriatric attention-whore. This reminds me of last election when a dem group was handing out fake ballots to other dems with a check next to all the dems they should vote for on the real ballot. Though I guess dems encouraging mindless voting has worked out swell for Madame Goldman Sachs.

    Actually, I saw a doc on Jews that did "support" Hitler and even assisted his military. They lived while the other Jews baked. Not but so dumb.
