George Takei Sneers: Trump’s America First Policy Is Like Interning Japanese

Written by  Scott Whitlock

USA Today on Thursday gave liberal actor/activist George Takei a platform to compare Donald Trump’s immigration policies to that of interning the Japanese during World War II. In a column, Takei slammed, “Our president has trumpeted an ‘America First’ policy, vowing to prioritize the well-being of the United States.

But ‘America’ doesn’t seem to include the brown-skinned, foreign-sounding or non-Christian people affected by his travel ban, his Mexico border wall or his immigration raids.”

The actor continued, “Keeping America safe means shutting out Middle Eastern refugees and deporting ‘rapists’ and ‘murderers.’ Keeping American jobs means keeping out Mexicans who cross the border to take them.” In 2015, the activist used racist language to mock Clarence Thomas as a “clown in black face.”

Takei compared Trump’s plans to the mass internment of Japanese:

DONATE

Seventy-five years ago, on Feb. 19, 1942, President Roosevelt launched his own version of “us vs. them,” authorizing the military to designate military zones and exclude any person from those zones as it saw fit. That order, like Trump’s travel ban, was on its face neutral. But it bore a clear intent.

Nearly 120,000 innocent people of Japanese ancestry were incarcerated simply because we looked like “them” — the enemy.

I would like to see George Takei take his dumb butt to a muslim country and go out into public and defend them. They would still throw him off a building for being gay. It is unbelievable how ignorant these liberals can be. They are so into doing what they think their "feelings" are telling them to do. They overlook the fact that MUSLIM Terrorists along with any other Muslim who reads and believes the Koran, would have them dead for being gay. Just shut up and be thankful that some casting director put you on tv in a movie about space. That is the ONLY thing you have going for you.

I wonder why George thinks that we shouldn't deport illegal aliens who steal American jobs back to their home countries? I don't see anybody asking to deport all aliens, just the illegals. Don't we have a responsibility to our own citizens and legal aliens? Why should we do anything for the illegals?

sanctuary cities for japanese during wwii, is not the same as restricting immigration from countries hostile to the united states. restricting immigration which the usa, most certainly did during wwii also.
it was not the germans, Italians, romanians, or ottomans, that so abruptly woke the sleeping giant in anger. the entire united states, was unified in anger at japan at this time written in infamy.
trying to compare internment camps, to restricting, halting immigration and sending illegal aliens back to where they came is not an act of sanity.

Internment was ABSOLUTELY the right thing to do after a sneak attack. Unfortunately, many innocent people were affected. That's war...

IIRC, George Takei was a little boy when his family was affected by the internment order, so it's understandable he'd have a lot of hard feelings about it. But consider: when Pearl Harbor catapulted the US into war with Japan, the US government knew very well that at least 90% of the Japanese-Americans were perfectly good citizens -- but it also knew that there really were Japanese government agents lurking among them, and the government couldn't just leave those agents running around loose until it could identify them. The government chose to intern those citizens until the agents were sorted out, or until the war ended, *rather than deport them wholesale*. What other choices did it have? George, which would you have preferred?

Does anybody remember Pearl Harbor?
Japs sneak attack killed many soldiers and Americans that day! Sunk many Navy Ships! This all happened as the U.S. and Japan were in Peace talks. WW 2 started, we could not trust them and the ones here in the U.S. paid the price! Smart !!

It would appear that the only buffoon here is George! He is your atypical Liberal Democrat Communist/Socialist - who wants everything handed to him at our expense. Typical of their rallying cries its all about them and nothing about the country as a whole.

I do believe the people of this nation spoke loud and clear (with the exception of the Soros puppets and thugs) that they want our country back - ALL of it. Liberals are NOT for border security, NOT for the laws of our land - and NOT for America!

I just wish if they want their vision of what THEY want for America - that they would ALL LEAVE and move to Venezuela and see exactly how their vision works in the real world. Maybe then they'd pull their heads out of the collective a$$e$!

George needs to be Jap-slapped for his asinine comments.

Internment of the Japanese during WWII was appropriate based on what they were doing to our military and given the opportunity would have done to every American. It would have been STUPID NOT TO HAVE INTERNED THEM.

What did they do? They beheaded. They removed genitals and stuffed them into mouths, and much much more. I was really surprised how perverted the JAPS were. READ Bill O'Reilly's "Rising Sun". You won't be able to put it down,

ISIS IS DOING THE SAME THING TO AMERICANS, AND PEOPLE OF OTHER NATIONS, THAT THE JAPS DID IN WWII. ISIS IS 100% MUSLIM. Therefore, IT IS STUPID NOT TO INTERN THEM AS WELL.

Takei just lost another fan! The extent to which he lied and falsified Trump's policy was out past PLUTO! There are no internment camps! And Takei seems to forget that the very reason he can shoot off his mouth and opinion is because of those actions taken in WWII! He seems to have either forgotten or doesn't want to admit Clinton and Obama also banned travel by immigrants! The nation's security of her citizens comes first! George, TAKE A HIKE!

So "george the butthumper", don't like the name I called you? No different than the remarks you made about Clarence Thomas except that I'm saying it to YOU and it is a truthful statement! You "assjockeys" think you have a right to force your ignorance and immorality on the rest of us, well we aren't going to allow it, that is why the MAJORITY of America voted for Trump! We are tired of you deviant asswipes bitchin' and moanin' about wanting more "rights" when there aren't any! You need to take your worn-out sphincter and move to a country that will accept your foolishness!
