Skip to comments.Bad news from Mr. Sulu: Clarence Thomas is a “clown in blackface”

Via the Free Beacon, I think it was Dan McLaughlin of Red State who tweeted after last week’s SSM decision was released, “Now the contest begins to see who’ll be the angriest winner.” His point was that, for a movement that’s been unstoppable culturally over the past 10 years, there’s a curiously strong impulse towards nastiness in some lefties’ reaction to each new victory. With this remark from George Takei, I think it’s safe to say the contest is now over.
Takei’s overreacting to a point Thomas made in response to Kennedy’s idea that state recognition of gay marriage is at base about recognizing the equal dignity of gay citizens. Your dignity doesn’t depend on what the state thinks of you, countered Thomas. Each life has inherent dignity that the state can’t destroy even with severe depredations. It can tell you that you’re property but God says you’re a human being, and that’s that. His point was a variation on Eleanor Roosevelt’s famous line that “no one can make you feel inferior without your consent,” which is simplistic in an extreme case of oppression like slavery or internment but valuable as a defense of the essential humanity of exploited people. All Thomas was saying was that dignity is a matter of natural rights, not positivism. Gays have dignity whether the state acknowledges their marriages or not. But because he came out the wrong way on gay marriage and because he is, after all, Clarence Thomas, America’s most famous black conservative and therefore the country’s supreme race traitor in the eyes of the left, Takei not only willfully misunderstands his intentions but slides easily into a nasty racial crack about Thomas’s black authenticity. He’ll pay no price for it, needless to say. If anything, this is high-five material for jerkoffs who’ve already moved past last week’s landmark ruling and are busily gaming out how to bust tax exemptions for Catholic soup kitchens or whatever.
George Takei: Clarence Thomas is a 'clown in blackface,' doesn't belong on Supreme Court
There goes Sulu, cocking up again.
I saw this today.
It’s hard to be tolerant when crap like this happens.
Doesn’t this make him a raciss????
He should be taken off Facebook, YouTube and be boycotted, right?
He be from the poop-faced tribe I see.. Ugghh.. You’d think he learned more than that on his journey.
He’s a suppurating Pilonidal Cyst.
Waiting for Macys and networks to drop Star Trek because of this gay fools disgusting comments..oh yeah, almost forgot..when your a liberal you can say ANYTHING you want about a Conservative and get away with it, in fact, you are applauded for it
Mr. Sulu really has gone where no man has gone before.
Interesting Takei invokes slaves, since the status of “positivism” that Thomas was rejecting towards gays IS, in legal fact, actual slavery.
You’re a disgrace to intelligence, George. Your “marriage” costs you recognition as a human being before the law, and replaces it with corporate status devoid of natural rights.
Oh well, can’t fix stupid.
A pain in the what?
If Takai were white and Thomas a democrat I’m pretty sure the media’s reaction to these comments would be somewhat different.
Mr. Sulu, report to the transporter room. Stand by to beam down to ShutTheF__kUp.
One usually has to excise them. Quite painful!
A good bitch slap is needed here.
He earns a living by making faces at cameras. Why should any of us credit what he says?
More celebration of the mentally ill.
The media’s rote repetition of every filthy, hateful, racist remark about Justice Thomas is disgraceful and pathetic.
They should all rot in hell.
Do we hear about all the names people allegedly call Obama?
No! It is all censored. Media does not wish to sully his name, but they do not hesitate to repeat and trumpet any disgusting crap that comes from the sewer on a conservative.
And, you’re a washed-up faggot actor.
How’s that feel?
I Wish he would just disappear already.
