There many issues here which need to be addressed on the internment camps in question is what the Japanese and the rest of the nations forgets or even mention that the reasons they were in these camps are because over 90% the fishing boats were in fact and operated were Japanese Companies fishing groups Moreover, Fishing Refineries and Fish Docks..etc..etc..own and operated from San Diego to Santa Barbara were way too many to question if they were really fishermen,plus, many were caught with shortwave radio's and many were spies....So many of the Japanese rights were a denied sadly as it seems, but the truth should be explained to the American people. ''''I as one American with one voice says this is the truth''' In other words, Miltary Intelligence apprehended dozens of Japanese fishermen with Ties to the Imperial Government of Japan and that California was very vulnerable to an open attack not to mention that there were many Navy ships and ports and installations Long Beach, San Diego, Marine Base and Fort Ord and another Air Corp, and Army, Navy, and Marines ...So was it the right call? I believed it was justified and I am glad that the U.S. Government made the right call and many innocent people were hurt and many rights were taken away... I think that Americans should stand up and say this was the right call in the manner of speaking about our laws were correct at that time of war, but. upon reflection we have compassion and most of us should uphold that we are a fair nation. The wheels of justice turn, they tuen slowly but they turn.....

What a petty, horrible little creep this man is. Portrays himself as a tolerant, kind person but takes every opportunity to bad mouth Shatner, even commenting on his hair. He only became a 'gay icon' after homosexuality had started to be accepted and plays to gay stereotypes for his own gain...oh my... His role in Star Trek was relatively minor and he has done very little else of consequence other than sharing things on social media. This is not someone to be admired, this is a glorified extra with a chip on his shoulder

I've heard negative things about Shatner, but Takei seems to be an utterly obnoxious twat. I'm on Kirk's side, with reservations, but they could both be gay for all I care, and it wouldn't affect my enjoyment of the show. And George really needs to get over the internment in WW2. Focus on how the Japanese treated their prisoners

He George fails to tell you the real truth that is in some history books written by astute historians and not 3 dollar bill Takie. It was FDR and. Democrat held Supreme Court who placed Japanese Americans into interment camps and not republicans . When the FDR administration was warned not to do this because it did violate their civil rights he the president FDR said I quote..we will worry about that after the war. Wake up all you stupid idiots Takie is a die hearth demon-crap who never once denounced the democrat party for what they did to his people. He doesn’t care about anyone it’s all an act to make sure him and his gay friends can play to their hearths content and damn the country.

Meanwhile, in the Land of the Pharaohs: Egypt "hunting down" gays, conducting forced anal exams - Amnesty Reuters Staff CAIRO (Reuters) - Six Egyptian men arrested for “promoting sexual deviancy” and “debauchery” on social media will be subjected to anal examinations ahead of their Oct. 1 trial, Amnesty International said on Saturday. Their arrest is part of a wider crackdown against homosexuality that started last week when a group of people were seen raising a rainbow flag at a concert, a rare public show of support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights in the conservative Muslim country. At least 11 people have since been arrested, Amnesty said, and one man has been sentenced to six years in jail after local media launched a highly critical campaign against those who raised the rainbow flag at a Mashrou’ Leila concert, a popular Lebanese alternative rock band whose lead singer is openly gay. Amnesty said the Forensic Medical Authority was due to subject the six men to anal examinations to determine whether they have had homosexual sex. Judicial sources said any defendant accused of “debauchery” or “sexual deviancy”, a euphemism for homosexuality in Egypt, is subjected to a medical examination based on an order from the Public Prosecutor. “Allegations of torturing or insulting those medically examined are lies not worth responding to. The examinations are carried out by a forensic doctor who swore to respect his profession and its ethics,” one judicial source said. Amnesty said such examinations violate the prohibition of torture and other ill-treatment under international law. “The fact that Egypt’s Public Prosecutor is prioritizing hunting down people based on their perceived sexual orientation is utterly deplorable. These men should be released immediately and unconditionally – not put on trial,” said Najia Bounaim, North Africa Campaigns Director at Amnesty International. “Forced anal examinations are abhorrent and amount to torture. The Egyptian authorities have an appalling track record of using invasive physical tests which amount to torture against detainees in their custody. All plans to carry out such tests on these men must be stopped immediately.” Egypt’s Muslim religious establishment is voicing its support for the government’s moves against homosexuals. “Al Azhar will stand against calls for sexual perversion the same way it has stood against extremist groups,” a preacher at the 1,000-year-old seat of Sunni Muslim learning said in his Friday prayers sermon. Although homosexuality is not specifically outlawed in Egypt, it is a conservative society and discrimination is rife. Gay men are frequently arrested and typically charged with debauchery, immorality or blasphemy. The largest crackdown on homosexuals took place in 2001, when police raided a floating disco called the Queen Boat. Fifty-two men were tried in the case.

Absolutely correct. George, and others like him that extoll the virtues of and practice pedophilia should be put to death. Molest a child = death. Sadly, a Muslim would give George the Mohammad/Aisha medal of honor for being a pedophile, and then roast him alive for being a queer. Now, when I think of shit, George's face pops into my head.

Let's not forget. Japanese people and it's leader visits and pays their respect to War criminals at Yasukuni Shrine annually. Most Japanese people believe it was lack of arms and power that led japan to lose war against United states. That Nanjing massacre of 300,000 innocent people being raped and killed in most horrifying way never happened. Europe had Hitler. Japan had Dojo Hideki and 10 or more other class A war criminals hanged due to their crimes when Japan surrendered. Their soul is upheld at Yasukuni Shrine. Did you know the current Japanese prime minister's grandfather is Gishi Nobuske who is also Class A war criminal? Can you imagine Hitler's grandson becoming Germany's Prime Minister? Japan says one thing but does other things. It is Japanese people knowingly electing these kinds of people. It is not the problem of political system. Deep inside, Japanese people are not sorry for what they have done. So, next time you're out their buying "Toyota,Honda,Nissan,Subaru,lexus,Sony Playstatin,,,,etc.", you are buying it from Hitler. Just imagine that.

wage earner (2 года назад)
I honestly don't mean to offend but I have question. When did Mr. George Takei realise he was gay? I am curious if it was during the run of Star Trek or before? Sure he probably always had feelings but when did he have that epiphany moment? I ask because I think his revelation of how he was pitching the metaphor of homosexuality to Gene Roddenberry would be good for historians to know chronological events as they occurred. For instance, was some new partner pushing for using Star Trek as a platform for progressive acceptance? Was Mr. Takei actually initially for the idea or was his "coming out of the closet" forced upon him? Embarrassment must have played a role because I doubt he wanted to tell everyone since Mr. Shatner was left out of the loop. Could be an interesting movie I think if played fairly and honestly. Please no bias or used as some sort of get even. Would not be accepted very well that way I think. All parties would have to come to some sort of agreement probably for world acclaim. I hope this isn't still too sensitive an area to be part of "The Real Star Trek". The fans will eat it up!

You are wrong. It does affect others, you just don't give a damn how it affects them. It tells others that sodomy is just fine and by doing so puts others souls at risk. I don't want my kids souls being put at risk by constantly being told by an immoral world that sodomy is "love", it's lust...and that sodomy is OK...it's clearly not.

+Robert Broussard Marriage in of itself is unnatural. Apes have gays in their communities, they are one of many animals that have gays. Btw, not too long ago it was considered unnatural for a white women to marry a black man. "Monkeys marrying white women, totally unnatural, and they even want to adopt!"
Robert Broussard (2 года назад)
Gay marriage is natural? ok so compare humans to ape society: the gay apes want kids, a donor is asked or kid is taken which leads to violence especially if they take from another tribe then back to human world the donors sue or the kid(s) come from a divorce. Wow so much a natural male female wedding! Stay Hearty and Blessed!

I have listened to this tirade from Takai for some time now and remain convinced that it is HE that is the problem. Being homosexual, he views anything and everything through that lens and that lens automatically tells every sissy boy or questionable woman that THEY ARE THE POOR VICTIM in every case, no matter what. He bitches about Shatner constantly upstaging him and everyone around him. Poor sissy boy. Takai's role throughout the entire series was that of SUPPORTIVE ACTOR and NOT star. He was part of the cast, period! The script(s) were written around Shatner, NOT Takai. He flaunts his freakishness at all times and joys in his queerness. Shatner does not need to flaunt that he is a normal man and a recognized star. Takai's kindergarten actions regarding his political queer "marriage" was just that - a political statement, in your face, "We're Queer and we're here" school yard actions and nothing more. Note, HE is the one that first says he refused to invite Shatner to the "wedding" then later recants saying he did, then later again says he didnt. Typical queer, in you face, school yard actions. Shatner merely smiles and tells the truth that he received no invitation and moves on, wishing the queer Takai well in his pseudo-wedding and perversions. All this on Takai's part is simply to try to keep his face on any camera because actually, no one paid much attention to him as the character SULU and still dont any any queer role he is handed. And it is ALWAYS now a queer role!!!!!

I do have an issue with illegal immigration. If you are in most industrialized nations of the world (Japan included), you are required to have a valid visa, passport or work permit or you are rightly deported because you are committing a crime just by being there. On the other hand, asylum is a valid reason, but like immigration it requires official requests, not just jumping a fence or swimming across a river. It has nothing to do with ethnicity. It is a matter of national security.

Plus, I think he does it in part with tongue in cheek. I mean Takei and Shatner are just hilarious old men to begin with. I love both guys, love Star Trek and love their feud.

There were opportunities where with a couple of words they could have dealt with same-sex relationships--Nope ! But they did do drug abuse/addiction. Roddenberry didn't have his hand on the tiller as much with TNG I think, and that may have been an issue.

I used to like Takei but he has gone off the liberal deep end.  He sounds kinda stupid now.  Senile maybe.
Timothy Kellogg (3 года назад)
It breaks my heart to hear about Mr.Takei's early life in the Internment/concentration camp.  Then to hear about the secret life he was forced to lead; I know it was the reality of the day - but what impresses me so about this man is the positive attitude he has in his outlook on life.  In his lifetime he has seen so much change, and through it all he has retained a positive attitude.  I always loved Star Trek, and loved his work in that great show, but knowing more about him and the challenges in his life makes me appreciate this country even more. I do wish I could thank him for the example of his strength of character and his ability to remain positive in the face of terrible obstacles.
