    Actor George Takei argued that "in one core, horrifying way," the family separations occurring at the United States' southern border are "worse" than the Japanese-American internment camps during World War II. "At least during the internment, when I was just 5 years old, I was not taken from my parents," he wrote in an op-ed for Foreign Policy magazine that was published Tuesday. Takei, an American citizen of Japanese ancestry who was detained with his family at camps in Arkansas and California, wrote that there was a "hideous irony" in the comparison. "At least during the internment, my parents were...

    George Takei had an out-of-this-world explanation for why so many people were talking about the sexual assault claim against him. In a now-deleted tweet, the “Star Trek” actor blamed Russian bots for spreading the story after Scott Brunton, an ex-model and actor, accused Takei of groping him in his Los Angeles condo in 1981.

    "Star Trek" icon George Takei has responded to an accusation of sexual assault made by a former model and actor who alleged an incident at Takei's home in 1981. In a series of tweets Saturday morning, Takei writes that the events "simply did not occur." He adds that he does not remember Scott R Brunton, who made the allegations in a THR interview which ran on Friday. "I am as shocked and bewildered at these claims as you must feel reading them," Takei continues to his 2.8M followers. Takei, who played Mr. Sulu on the original “Star Trek,” and who...

    Star Trek icon George Takei has been accused of sexually assaulting a former male model while the young man was passed out in his Los Angeles condo in 1981. Scott Brunton came forward to say he was groped by the actor when he was just 24, claiming Takei - then aged 43 or 44-years-old - took advantage of him just after a breakup. 'This happened a long time ago, but I have never forgotten it,' Brunton told the The Hollywood Reporter.

    Sunday on MSNBC’s “Am Joy,” while discussing the new lead Africa-American character on latest Star Trek series “Discovery,” actor George Takei of “Star Trek” fame called President Donald Trump a “troll,” and added that he though Trump was “as foolish and as uninformed and as ignorant as these trolls.” George Takei said, “Today in this society, we have alien life forms that we call trolls and these trolls carry on without knowing what they’re talking about and knowing even less about the history of what they’re talking about and some of these trolls go on to be presidents of nations.”...

    CPAC canceled Milo Yiannopoulos’ speech today after a #NeverTrump group released audio of Milo allegedly promoting pedophilia.But it wasn’t taht long ago that Pizza Hut spokesman was advocating sex between children and adults.George Takei apparently doesn’t think it’s child molestation as long as the 13-year-old boy finds the adult male attractive. Radio anchor: Were you molested?George Takei: No. Because I thought he was attractive. And he was. Skip to 2:20 for Takei’s damning comment! George Takei did an ad for Super Bowl 2017. Wow! The #Milo story is now burning @GeorgeTakei who romanticized/promoted being molested when he was 13yrs old!...

    I owe an apology. On the eve of Independence Day, I have a renewed sense of what this country stands for, and how I personally could help achieve it. The promise of equality and freedom is one that all of us have to work for, at all times. I know this as a survivor of the Japanese American internment, which each day drives me only to strive harder to help fulfill that promise for future generations. 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...

    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...

    George Takei unleashed a racist rant against Clarence Thomas, sneering that the Supreme Court justice is a "clown in blackface." The Star Trek actor on Monday fumed, "[Thomas] is a clown in blackface sitting on the Supreme Court. He gets me that angry. He doesn't belong there." Talking to a local Fox affiliate in Phoenix, Takei snarled that the second African American on the Supreme Court is unqualified: "This man does not belong on the Supreme Court. He is an embarrassment. He is a disgrace to America."

    Critics say the Religious Freedom Restoration Act legalizes discrimination Indiana Gov. Mike Pence signed a bill into law Thursday that allows business owners to deny same-sex couples service on religious grounds, then quickly defended it. Within hours, Star Trek actor and LGBT activist George Takei took his outrage to Twitter using the hashtag #BoycottIndiana, which began trending. Democratic lawmakers, LGBT rights activists and civil liberties groups have argued that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act legalizes discrimination.

    Out actor George Takei has criticized a Supreme Court decision declaring that some for-profit companies may block their employees' access to certain birth control methods. Hobby Lobby challenged the Affordable Care Act's (ACA) requirement that insurance health plans include coverage for FDA-approved contraception, arguing that the law violates the company's religious freedom. “In this case, the owners happen to be deeply Christian; one wonders whether the case would have come out differently if a Muslim-run chain business attempted to impose Sharia law on its employees,” Takei said in a blog post. “As many have pointed out, Hobby Lobby is the...

    Many first became acquainted with George Takei as “Sulu” on the original “Star Trek” TV series, but for a number of years the actor has been an outspoken left-wing, and particularly gay-rights, activist. On Friday Takei switched his phasers on stun and penned a pointed “Raising Arizona” letter in reaction to the state legislature’s passage of a bill many view as anti-gay. Calling it the “turn away the gay” bill, Takei promised a ground-shaking degree of trouble, including boycotts, if the measure is signed by Gov. Jan Brewer, The Raw Story noted. “Your taxi drivers can refuse to carry us....

    George Takei is hardly the only American concerned about the NSA's massive surveillance programs. But unlike most people, his fears are rooted in the memory of the government persecution he suffered firsthand in a Japanese internment camp. "Due process is a pillar of our American justice system," the Star Trek star told Daily Intelligencer last night at the Eighth Annual Stella by Starlight Benefit Gala. "We were rounded up simply because we happened to look like the people who bombed Pearl Harbor. And we were put in prison camps with barbed wire and machine guns pointed at us. It was...

    LOS ANGELES – William Shatner is setting his phaser to stun against his old "Star Trek" co-star George Takei. In a video posted on Shatner's Web site Wednesday, he lashed out at Takei for not inviting him to his wedding last month. The 77-year-old Kirk said Takei, who played Enterprise helmsman Sulu, apparently harbors a grudge against him that kept him from being invited to Takei's nuptials.

Takei, who spent a year at an internment camp in Rohwer, sent a copy of his book to Clinton...
