Star Trek’s George Takei Accused of Sexually Assaulting Male Model

Star Trek’s George Takei Accused of Sexually Assaulting Male Model

There are some people who invite Schadenfreude

George Takei’s condescending diatribes and holier-than-thou attitude make him absolutely insufferable.  He gives the impression that he sees himself as someone above all others and that from his lofty perch he has the proper perspective from which to judge and condemn we mere mortals.  It’s this attitude that has made the sexual assault allegations of a former male model blow up the internet.

It helps of course that the allegations themselves are somewhat shocking, but the social media Schadenfreude is palpable.

Fox News reports:

George Takei, best known for his role in “Star Trek,” was accused Friday of sexual assault by a former actor and model, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Scott R. Brunton said the incident occurred in 1981 when he was beginning his career in Hollywood. He said he met Takei, who was 43 or 44 years old then, at a bar and the pair reportedly exchanged numbers and talked on occasion.

. . . .  Following a night out, the duo reportedly went back to Takei’s apartment for drinks. During the second round, Brunton said he began “feeling very disoriented and dizzy” and thought he “was going to pass out,” he told The Hollywood Reporter.

Brunton claimed he “passed out” in a beanbag chair in Takei’s apartment and when he regained consciousness, he allegedly found himself in a compromising position.

“The next thing I remember I was coming to and he had my pants down around my ankles and he was groping my crotch and trying to get my underwear off and feeling me up at the same time, trying to get his hands down my underwear,” Brunton told The Hollywood Reporter. “I came to and said, ‘What are you doing?!’ I said, ‘I don’t want to do this.’”

Brunton claimed he left the apartment despite Takei telling him “to relax” and “get comfortable.”

Brunton said that he didn’t think anyone would believe him at the time and that it wasn’t until Takei pontificated on the allegations against Kevin Spacey that Brunton decided it was time to speak out.

Fox News continues:

Thinking no one would believe him, Brunton said he never went to the press with his story because “it’s my word against his,” he told the outlet.

But after Takei responded to allegations against Kevin Spacey, Brunton reportedly changed his mind.
Following actor Anthony Rapp’s sexual assault accusation against Spacey, and his subsequent apology in which he came out as gay, Takei told The Hollywood Reporter on Oct. 30 that the move was a “deflection” from the situation.

“When power is used in a non-consensual situation, it is a wrong,” Takei said. “For Anthony Rapp, he has had to live with the memory of this experience of decades ago. For Kevin Spacey, who claims not to remember the incident, he was the older, dominant one who had his way.

“Men who improperly harass or assault do not do so because they are gay or straight — that is a deflection,” Takei said. “They do so because they have the power, and they chose to abuse it.”

Twitter is abuzz with people retweeting Takei’s many tweets attacking others for varying degrees of sexual predation (many of which are far less horrifying than what Takei allegedly did to Brunton).

And the funny:

And then there’s this:

For his part, Takei has denied the allegations in a series of tweets:

You’ll be forgiven if you think that sounds familiar.

Oh my

Every one of us has to fight the impulse of thinking we’re better than the next guy/gal.

But for those who actually give public voice to this: Are you sure you want to go out on that limb?

Sounds as though he went where no man ought to go.

George T. apparently should have kept his “holier-than-thou” mouth shut according to his self-proclaimed “victim.” Vengeance accusations from 3 or more decades past seem spurious, at best.

Nobody in any prominent position is safe from faddist assertions. The witch hunt lends undeserved credence to outright character assassination, and muddies the real activities of the actual monsters among us.

According to the feminists, all sex with men is rape, even in marriage. Therefore, it is impossible for any heretofore normal intimacy to exist in the world. I pose the following: Since no lines have been drawn to separate acceptable behavior from unacceptable either in time, gender or activity, there is nothing left but to accept the absolute trivialization of human relations and declare….so what.

The lefties savaged the Clinton accusers before, during and after his tenure. Hillary, Stephanopolis and James Carville led the assault. The words rape, harassment and accountability no longer have any meaning.

    Oh, those words have meaning, alright. They are one big factor in why Hillary lost.

    When she took the position that DJT was unqualified for the office of the Presidency due to his alleged treatment of women, there were a lot of young women who were inclined to buy into that theory. They encountered a lot of women who were familiar with Hillary’s past actions, and her decades-long defense that Bill’s bad behavior had nothing do with his performance in office, as well as Hillary’s character assassination of his accusers.

    If the silly fool had that one issue go, she might have won.

Transgender and trans-social. That said, let’s defer judgment to due process.

Set phasers to “diddle”, Mr. Sulu.

Takei accused Trup of being a homophobe. Isn’t assaulting a gay man the worst form of homophobia?

So George tweets this..

“Right now it is a he said / he said situation, over alleged events nearly 40 years ago. But those that know me understand that non-consensual acts are so antithetical to my values and my practices, the very idea that someone would accuse me of this is quite personally painful. /4”

I wonder what George has said about Moore of AL?

    Apparently dismissing it as being a case of “he said/she or he said” or it “so many years ago only is allowed when it is your ox being gored.

      Exactly, Liz and Katiejane. Usually, the hypocrisy isn’t so obvious and immediate; it may take months or years for a leftist’s hypocrisy to show. Now we have two instances of alleged sexual misconduct (one clearly more onerous than the other) happening at once. The left can’t condemn Moore without also condemning Takei, and they can’t “oh, but that was only almost rape, not rape-rape” it away for Takei and not Moore (whom even his accusers say didn’t attempt to rape them). Lefties are spinning in the wind, and it’s hilarious.

So it turns out that Sulu was actually a gay Borg. “Resistance is futile.”

Isn’t assaulting a gay man the worst form of homophobia?
No, he merely “loved not wisely but too well.” 🙂

Everyone seems to be missing the major offense—

Brunton claimed he “passed out” in a beanbag chair in Takei’s apartment

That’s the worst part of the story, right there.

a beanbag chair
Well, it was 1981, barely out of the 70’s. 🙂

There are days when one would wish to be on another planet, right Sulu?

Interesting how the loudest enablers of the fascist left have turned out to be the biggest perverts, or perv-enablers (in particular, obama and clinton.)

Many of us have been saying how the pervs of hollywood and the EU have sought the protection of those communities in exchange for enabling those communities dangerous political ambitions.

    So true, Fine! But then, the left does nothing but project their own faults and ugliness onto us. I can’t think of one condemnation of the right they have made in the past couple of decades that didn’t actually–and far more accurately–describe themselves.

    From Hillary’s “vast rightwing conspiracy” right up to everyone’s a RAAAAACIST xenophobe homophobe hater fascist who sows fear, division, and discord. No one embodies the left’s description of the right better than the lefties themselves.

    It’s been a great diversionary tactic, particularly when coupled with the dumbing down of K-12 and even higher education. But I am daring to hope that it may be unravelling now. Due, in no small part, to President Trump, truth be told.

      Completely due to Trump – who WE elected.

      The only reason the left’s obvious diversionary tactics worked is not merely because of the corrupt democrat meda, but because of the complicity of the Crying Boehners.

      The left coulddn’t have done it without them.

George Takei’s Tweets are understandable. After-all somehow simply stating “I now choose to live life as a gay man” would have been more of a stretch than when Kevin Spacey fell flat trying it.

I think we should focus on the positive in this sordid story.

Christopher Plummer is a humble man and a fine actor and it’s always nice to see him getting work.

You know, nobody really cares about these claims of sexual harassment anymore. They are becoming so numerous, as well as so vague, that people are simply tuning them out.

Here we have another unsubstantiated report of possibly non-consenual sexual contact [sort of] by a person who admits that he was intoxicated and feeling “dizzy” and “passed out(?)”, 36 years ago. In essence he is claiming that he can not remember a significant period of time on that night. So, he does not remember if he consented to the actions of Mr. Takei or not. Yet, we are supposed to assume that his memory of events mere seconds after awakening from a period of drug induced “unconsciousness” is 100% accurate. Hahahahaha. Sure. Santa Claus and Easter Bunny and I got a real chuckle out of that, after knocking back a few at Trader Vic’s.

This mass hysteria over every claim of inappropriate behavior, substantiated or not, has now risen to the level of mass hysteria. Just give it all a rest.

Then only good thing to come out of the Takei claim is that we are now expanding these type of allegations to include minorities.

There is going to be a new PC term ‘I have been Takei’ed again’.

Let’s not forget creepy Joe Biden’s roaming hands on — children.


When does this Joe Bidenstory explode? —

    The Biden story will never hit the MSM as Biden is a Marxist-Communist darling of the loony left and will be protected.

      Milhouse in reply to OldNuc. | November 13, 2017 at 12:38 am

      You’re nuts. Biden is neither a Marxist nor a communist, and is actually quite moderate for a Democrat. His major defect is that he’s just not that bright. Understanding Marx takes brains, and poor Uncle Joe was not graced with them.

Hollywood is falling apart. Cosby, Weinstein, Spacy, Louis CK, Affleck… who’s next?


Objectively this is one word against another, and the accusation should not be believed. But so long as Takei maintains that all such accusations about other people should be believed, he should be estopped from claiminghs own innocence.
