    He is right. SJWs are the worst representatives of their cause in the history of man kind. Usually they accomplish the exact opposite of their stated goals because they are such douche bags no one likes them.

    I've never heard of Operation Bikini. Is he really more notable for it than Star Trek?

    Ahhhhh yes........

    The old if you're not a supporter of everything the left demands you support than you're a Nazi card. Or as they like to say now Alt-Right.

    Nice picture they used of Shatner in the article too.

    The SJWs were riled up and radicalized by Reddit KGB agents, then the anti-SJWs were riled up and radicalized by Reddit KGB agents.
    It was all a plot to get neckbeards to vote for Trump, and hipsters and hippies to throw their votes away on Bernie and Stein.
    The whole SJW vs anti-SJW narrative is long past its shelf life.
    Everyone still involved with it needs to go blow their brains out.

    If I remember right SJWs became a thing, even though they existed before this, during the anon attack on scientology. Anon split into two o factions. Half were just in it for the lulz, and the other half actually believed in the cause. It was one of the first times trolling was seen as a way to confront social injustice by the media. After that the SJW movement moved on realizing they had some power, and the y were mocked by some people who did not like their idealism.

    I could be entirely wrong about this given my lack of omnipotence and it is just my observation.

    It was a joke. Everyone knows that Shatner is known for T.J. Hooker. Few people are familiar with Operation Bikini, and whatever this Star Track thing is sounds stupid; stars don't have tracks.

    You know what this means? Captain Kirk is a xenophobe, homophobe, Islamaphobe, transphobe, sexaphobe, arachnophobe... suffice it to say he's got far too many phobias for LeftForge to accept him.

    (Liberals fucking hate scared people, no?)

    I'll let you in on a little secret: Captain Kirk didn't say any of those things. The actor who played him, OTOH, may be some of those things (though there's no indication he's afraid of spiders and, having been married four times, he's likely not a "sexaphobe," even if there were such a word).

    My guess is he's emulating Donnie's penchant for grabbing free publicity. This may also be part of his ongoing feud with Takei.

    Which I'm not entirely convinced is genuine. I mean, if George and Shat were best buds, nobody'd think anything about it, but make them "mortal enemies" and suddenly everybody's interested.

    It's well known that Shatner never got along with his co-stars during the original run of the show. They say he used his creative control to take lines away from them and diminish their already small parts. He claims that it was done for the betterment of the show and was stunned to find out years later that his co-stars hated him. This has been well documented in pretty much every book that was written by the members of the cast. If this has all been an act then it's been a well played one for the past twenty plus years.

    You emulate Donald Trump by rebelling against the mainstream corporate establishment. He's like a Jesus figure only rich and cooler.

    Meh, Shatner's not entirely wrong.

    Sure, there's a rich seam of white guys who are terribly, terribly upset that vaginas and brown people may be on their golf course, and that all the built-in goodies of being male and white are being handed out a little more, and - gosh - boys may like boys, and girls may like girls, and maybe things aren't quite as binary as the old days when people clammed up lest they get socially rejected or become targets for violence.

    Suck it up fuckers, nobody promised you an Old White Guy future unless you were dumb enough to figure the Jetsons was a documentary that fell back through time.

    But, as ever with a rebalance, there's a bit of wobbling where some go too far over. And the internet is crawling with them, the real world not so much.

    And the best bit is that they all come with their own prejudices.

    So yeah, I don't see an issue calling them out.

    Problem is, they're all a bit like Dayton. They're not in search of debate, they want a soapbox from which to shout unchallenged, and, much like Dayton, go fucking tits when the world decides not to oblige.

    And so it was that all of rightforge had to buy new keyboards and pads. That picture should be put under the spoiler tag. @M. Bison could be French kissing his dog and see that picture and then his dog is blind for life. I hate dogs and even I do not want to see his take a cumshot to this eyes. Think about @Dayton3 he has a kid. Imagine the trauma she could have seeing her father blow through his assistant gym teacher sweat pants like an erupting volcano of slash passion. Not to mention he might drip into his sucking foot wound mixing his sperm with flesh eating bacteria and make a super strain of really stupid but deadly bacteria that destroy functioning brain cells. We would never know about it until it was too late because it would start in Arkansas and that Midwest. By the time we would notice the drop in intelligence it would have to be in a non trump stupid state.

    Oh, I can see them being pissed at him while they're still working together, but they haven't had to put up with him on a daily basis for decades now (the last movie they did together was in the 90s) and most people don't hold on to grudges for that long.
