Takei didn't let the opportunity pass him by:
Friend and Foe alike showed their displeasure. A Sample:
There are very, very few instances of known allergic reactions to the Covid-19 vaccine, but Marco Rubio has always thought of himself as one in a million so there’s still hope.— George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) December 20, 2020
@Joelmpetlin - "You can strongly disagree with someone's policies without wishing them a painful death. It's sad that this has to be said periodically on Twitter, but here we are nevertheless."
@TheRightColumn - "The US Left wishing death on the US Right, while simultaneously thinking of themselves as the good guys, is very on brand."
@PBeq2 - Amazing how libs say they are tolerant of other but always go personal first. You may be a Sci Fi icon, but so are a lot of B actors.
@josephcphillips - I’m betting this sounded a lot more clever before you hit send. It also violates Twitter policy"
The tweet is still up on Twitter and Takei hasn’t issued an apology or tried to walk it back.
So, we have yet another example of what happens when celebrities bubble themselves in their own culture. Takei believes that wishing harm on someone just for a difference in political or religious views is just okay.
If this is the kind of “unity” the Democrats want then I can say with some measure of confidence that this is going to be the most divisive and violent unity the world has ever witnessed. If the left has this much hatred in its heart that it believes in visiting evil on innocent people who merely disagree with them politically as a moral good then this is going to be a very nasty next four years.
