George Takei On ALLEGIANCE Film & New Doc: BECAUSE WE DON'T KNOW THIS CHAPTER OF AMERICAN HISTORY, WE'RE REPEATING IT Comments (0)

George Takei, the out 81-year-old Star Trek icon and social media phenomenon, still gets fired up discussing his family's internment under orders by FDR during WWII.

Speaking from  California shortly before the spate of deadly wildfires there, he recounted for me the unconscionable hardship faced by Japanese Americans during this period, which included having their bank accounts frozen and being literally imprisoned without any charges ever being filed, all because the U.S. government decided their ethnicity trumped their citizenship. “The roughly 120,000 Japanese Americans on the West Coast were sent to 10 barbed-wire prison camps in the most godawful places in this country. All desolate, isolated. There were two camps in the blistering-hot desert of Arizona. There was another camp in the swamps of Arkansas. There were camps in the high, windswept, cold plains of Wyoming, Idaho, Utah, Colorado, and two of the most desolate places in California.”

“I mean, can you imagine this?” he asks, still incredulous after over 70 years.

I'm not sure how I feel about this, to be honest. George Takei is being a new app called House of Cats that stars parodies of the Trumps, including Trumpy Cat, in a White House setting. You're supposed to take pleasure from getting your pic taken with Trumpy Cat and making him say and do silly things.

Takei seems to know it's a potentially bad idea, saying in a press release:

UPDATE: A classy response from Uncle George:

Vindication! I never believed the story that George Takei sexually assaulted a man nearly 40 years ago, and was always adamant that it should be okay to believe that some accusers are liars — if their stories make no sense.

Scott Brunton, the ex-model who smeared Takei as a sex fiend, has now been forced to withdraw his sensationalized accusations against the liberal lion, thanks to a fearless story by The New York Observer's Shane Snow.

From his bombshell piece:

George Takei Denies Sexual Abuse Allegation — PLUS, Where Do We Go From Here? Comments (0)

Former model Scott R. Brunton, in a THR story, claims gay icon and Star Trek trailblazer George Takei attempted to take advantage of him sexually at the end of a 1981 date.

According to Brunton, he and Takei were casual friends who went on a date — dinner and a play — before going back to Takei's place for drinks. While there, Brunton recalls passing out during his second drink. He does not explicitly state that he was drugged, but he is clearly implying that. When he awoke, he says Takei was groping him, trying to get his underwear off. When he said no, Takei asked him to relax, which led Brunton to say no a second time, push him away, and leave. He said he sat in his car until he felt well enough to drive.

Takei did not immediately respond, but addressed the lag in his response in what comes across as a sincere, Saturday morning Facebook post on the subject, in which he flatly denies the incident ever occurred:

JRFord-1600x900JR Ford, a concerned dad of a trans daughter, writes: “Every time we let any hate speech fester without rebuke, we perpetuate a future where kids and adults like my own child could be the next target for violence merely for catching the eye of a man so insecure in themselves that they would resort to violence because of attraction ... We cannot treat that daily threat of violence as normal.”
