George Takei of Star Trek fame, took to Twitter today and unleashed a couple of abhorrent tweets that he immediately got shredded for issuing. In a gay, bigoted frenzy, he basically insinuated that House Majority Whip Steve Scalise had it coming when he was shot this week by a crazed Bernie Sanders supporter. He called him “bigoted” and “homophobic.” This is the type of hatred and vitriol coming from the left immediately following the attempted assassination of House Freedom Caucus (i.e. Tea Party) Republicans in Virginia at a practice session for a charity baseball game. He is far from alone… Democratic strategist, James Devine, in New Jersey actively pushed hunting down Republicans not 48 hours after Scalise was shot: “We are in a war with selfish, foolish & narcissistic rich people. Why is it a shock when things turn violent? #HuntRepublicanCongressmen.”
“The universe doesn’t joke around. The officer who saved bigoted, homophobic Rep. Steve Scalise during baseball practice was a black lesbian,” Takei poison penned. That black lesbian, who Takei doesn’t even name, is Crystal Griner. And I see her has a heroic police officer. I don’t judge her by her skin color or her sexuality. She has protected Scalise on his security detail for years from what I understand. So much for Scalise being a bigot or a homophobe. However, Takei is certainly a bigot who hates Scalise for believing marriage is between a man and a woman and for being a Christian.
“Star Trek” star George Takei was strongly rebuked on Twitter Saturday after he claimed that House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) received some sort of social justice at the hands of the universe when he was shot earlier this week.
In the tweet, Takei also labeled Scalise “bigoted” and “homophobic.”
“The universe doesn’t joke around. The officer who saved bigoted, homophobic Rep. Steve Scalise during baseball practice was a black lesbian,” Takei wrote.

Takei’s implication, of course, is that because Scalise is a Republican and supports traditional marriage between a man and woman he somehow deserved being shot just to be saved by a person who is both black and lesbian.
Takei was referring to Capitol Police officer Crystal Griner.
The tweet was penned Saturday morning as Scalise remains in the hospital after nearly dying from a gunshot wound sustained when a lone gunman opened fire on a group of Republican congressmen practicing for the annual congressional baseball game.
But Takei didn’t end his hateful political rhetoric there. In a follow up tweet, he also bashed Scalise for “espousing” traditional values on his congressional website:
I believe that divine providence saved Scalise’s life and the others at that game this week. That and armed police officers. He damn near didn’t make it. The bullet that hit him in the hip, ricocheted off his pelvis, shattering bones and piercing vital organs as it went. He almost bled to death before they got him into surgery. He’s going to recover and everyone else will as well, except the shooter, who is residing in hell right about now. But what about next time? That assassin had a list on him of six Freedom Caucus members… which make me wonder if this plan doesn’t go deeper than just one moonbat. The left is applauding the shooting. It’s despicable and depraved. It also condones and encourages more violence against the right.
Takei was roundly condemned for his hateful tweets today. This isn’t some kind of warped, twisted progressive universal social justice… it’s sheer evil and he just chooses not to get it. Instead, he embraces it. The left doesn’t look like it is going to back off the violent rhetoric one bit, so I suggest Republicans make sure they are armed and ready. Their lives and those they care about may depend on it. This kind of justification for the cutting down of others leads to butchery.
She was also shot by Bernie volunteer, stupid universe. https://t.co/RqFstieLlW

Pathetic attempt to make people forget that leftists like you are whipping people up in making lists of conservatives to kill https://t.co/cNbq0zC6rl

No George, she was a competent police officer😊. Any categorising is an insult no matter where it comes from.

George doesn't realize how demeaning this is. She is a person with a name and family. He's reduced her simply to a "black lesbian." Sad. https://t.co/qBsL1bsw3b

How about we just credit the officer for her courage instead of worrying so profusely about labels? https://t.co/WmAzPrbszZ

You do know the black lesbian police officer was shot by a Bernie Sanders fan right? Right….

So a raving left wing lunatic shot 2 black cops, one of which was gay. Thanks George. I get it.

I bet you don't even know her name, do you? "Black Lesbian" is all you care about.

That's the problem George, you look at her and see "black lesbian", I look at her and just see a hero.
