George Takei went on a racist rant Monday in an interview in Phoenix, unleashing on conservative Justice Clarence Thomas in response to Thomas’ comments regarding the Supreme Court decision on gay marriage, NewsBusters reported.
“He is a clown in blackface sitting on the Supreme Court. He gets me that angry. He doesn’t belong there,” Takei said, later adding, “This man does not belong on the Supreme Court. He is an embarrassment. He is a disgrace to America. I’ll say it on camera.”
Takei’s rage came in light of the Justice’s contrary stance on the recent equal marriage decision, where the Court ruled 5-4 that the Constitution guarantees a right to same-sex marriage. Thomas released a statement saying that the government does not grant human dignity, and as such cannot take it away. Thomas argued that human dignity is inherent, and that the Supreme Court cannot issue it.
As for Takei’s “blackface” remark, liberals seem pretty pleased by it.
Takei later explained away his "blackface" remark as not really meaning what we believe it meant, or something.

Uh huh. Kinda like when Rep. Ryan Winkler called Justice Thomas an "Uncle Thomas" and claimed to have believed it meant "turncoat." Whatevs.
Of course the mainstream media didn't call Takei on his behavior given that he falls within the trifecta of their favorite protected classes: Leftist, minority and gay (in that order). Oh, and he posts funny things on Facebook, so he's providing a valuable service y'know.
Truth be told, I'm not the least bit shocked Takei wasn't called out on any outlet outside of right-of-center venues. Again, he's the lovable gay guy who starred in perhaps one of the more revered Science Fiction TV shows in the history of entertainment. Certainly a disgusting racist tirade doesn't fit within that template. Besides, if Clarence Thomas would just possess the thought process most leftists believe a black man should adhere to, there would have been no problem. As such, George is absolved of responsibility. Love wins!
