LeVar Burton Threatened ‘Physical Violence’ Against Moms for Liberty at Book Ceremony

LeVar Burton Threatened ‘Physical Violence’ Against Moms for Liberty at Book Ceremony

“Before we get going, are there any Moms for Liberty in the house? No? Good. then hands will not need to be thrown tonight.”

Reading Rainbow’s LeVar Burton has no problem fighting women.

Burton just had to kick off the National Book Awards ceremony by smearing Moms for Liberty because if anyone from the organization attended, he would raise his hands at them:

“Before we get going, are there any Moms for Liberty in the house? No? Good. then hands will not need to be thrown tonight.”

How else does one interpret the statement, LeVar? You would put your hands on a woman?

Moms for Liberty does not ban books. No one has banned books. God forbid parents want books in the age-appropriate spots in libraries.

Why didn’t LeVar say anything about the California district that removed To Kill a Mockingbird from its required reading list? It also eliminated Of Mice and Men and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

How about the teachers in Washington who also want to ban To Kill a Mockingbird?

Oh, wait. Since they’re progressive teachers, they only try to “prohibit” the book.

Different rules, you guys.

Moms for Liberty bit back.

Why are all the old Star Trek folks such flaming morons and lefties? (OK, the new ones, too. And everyone else in Hollywood, practically.)

    Let’s see. They depicted a universe in which there was no money, nobody got paychecks, everyone got what he needed or wanted from replicators powered by limitless energy (although they were “rationed,” and weapons were prohibited, solely for reasons of social control), people worked almost entirely because they “wanted to,” and humanity’s scientific exploration vessels and military vessels were the very same vessels.

    And you ask me why they were flaming commies? Because that’s a description of commie heaven.

      How does one say ‘I’ve never seen Star Trek’ without saying ‘I’ve never seen Star Trek’?

      Patrick Stewarts line that the left has glommed on to refers to pursuit of money. Not money itself.

      People in Starfleet get paid and know how to use money. As do people all over the Federation and the Alpha quadrant.

      The replicators were rationed on Voyager –in a situation where they had no ready way to re-power the ship.

      There are weapons stored all over the ships that any crewman can just grab at need. Further, crew have their weapons, including personal, individually owned weapons in their quarters.

      And the fact that their exploratory vessels could defend themselves reflects Roddenberry’s old west notions.

      Leftists have tried to claim Star Trek for the same rason they try to claim everything

      To destroy it.

    And speaking of Hollywood, I saw some black humor yesterday musing about whether the amazing and notable lack of strident speeches of support for Hamas from our Hollywood celebrity class, who invariably jumps on every other leftist “current thing” bandwagon, might be a strong indicator of “who” still runs Hollywood.

    It is Hollywood., with a culture which is awful for family life.

    Not all. Shatner is certainly not a leftist looney and DeForest Kelley (RIP 1999) was a quiet, regular kind of guy, married 54 years, who supported vets.

      Shatner saved Star Trek from Roddenberry. An unrestrained Roddenberry would have given us garbage like STTNG Thanks to Shatner, a generation was spared that torture.

      99% are not decent

      diver64 in reply to mjm2112. | November 18, 2023 at 5:50 am

      Shatner is Jewish and Canadian. He also supports vets and is a very decent guy by all accounts.

        Shatner is famous for the size of his ego, as the (one of three) lead on ST he ticked off a bunch of his fellow actors who wanted a more ensemble cast. Which is one reason why Galaxy Quest is such a funny parody of ST for die hard fans. Like that captain, he hogged the limelight of the role at the expense of fellow cast members, then was astonished to be hated for that.

        But other than that, he comes across now as a decent guy. And an actor with some serious chops, despite decades of folks making fun of his ST acting. At the least, he developed a sense of humor at his own expense, Danny Crane is an obvious and funny sendup of himself.

      As I recall, James Doohan was also a quiet decent guy.

another d-list has-been actor desperate for a paycheck is liable to say anything–not really surprising–pathetic indeed but not surprising

That would be a sight to see.

Mom’s for Liberty versus Washed Up Actors (pedophiles) For Violence.

I wonder what he thinks Moms For Liberty does? Also, who told him?

I just watched an amusing kerffluffel along the same lines, involving Elon Musk. He criticized the ADL for being racist, and Mediate did a rip and run article like they always do to Trump, calling him an anti-semite.

    Valerie in reply to Valerie. | November 17, 2023 at 1:38 pm

    Well, well, well. It turns out that Mr. Burton’s supporters think Moms for Liberty is all about controlling what ADULTS read! They think they’re talking about book bans.

    The conversation over at X is every bit as off-the-wall as you would expect from delusional Democrats.

      diver64 in reply to Valerie. | November 18, 2023 at 5:51 am

      I’m always amused that people like that are screeching about books being banned then handing them out for free like Pink is going to do.

      I don’t think that word (banned) means what they think it means.

    Jews have better family values than many people, and their culture is a big factor in their success.

ThePrimordialOrderedPair | November 17, 2023 at 1:32 pm

LeVar Burton is a complete POS. It takes a real animal – a real lowlife – to think it’s funny to contemplate beating up women who stand for decency. I guess Levar is trying to make it as a rapper in his later years.


Most women could probably beat him up.

    The Gentle Grizzly in reply to JimWoo. | November 17, 2023 at 4:01 pm

    Yours is a variation on a comment I was about to make: those moms would beat the tar out of him.

    AF_Chief_Master_Sgt in reply to JimWoo. | November 17, 2023 at 6:48 pm

    So, in the game of “Intersectionality,” does the Pink Misogyny Card trump the Black Race Card?

    It’s so hard to keep up with the new games. Monopoly was so much easier. The rules were simple and well written.

The “Moms” have probably learned some lessons in hand to hand ideological warfare. They have to know their enemy is well funded and very good at counter attack. They should even be prepared for ideological plants in their midst to act out in a way that the media can use against them. It is a long war against evil as evil is always planning and organizing and recruiting. They play a very long game.

He just can’t help proving hes a moron.

Normally, I wouldn’t hit a man with a visor, but I’d make an exception for him.

LeVar would never put his hands on a woman because he is as queer as a three-dollar bill. The only force he ever used was the gay porn star, Bruce Force.

Levar Who?

Like anyone cares what he thinks.

Kunta Kinte showing he is still a plantation slave, and he will die a plantation slave.

LeVar Burton is a documented racist who blames all his problems in life on white people.

Woke trash.

Bear in mind the left ALWAYS reverts to violence when it is thwarted.

Strange that although I pay attention to the news I have not heard of any books being banned. Some have been pulled out of libraries as age inappropriate which has been going on for decades but you can still get them next day from Amazon.
One begins to wonder why those on the left insist on porn for children. What is wrong with them?

Disappointing from a fan of ST TNG.

For the past 15 years or so, the various book awards (e.g. Pulitzer, National Book Award, …) have gotten so woke that I basically just look at their winner list to know what to avoid.

May I take this opportunity to note that Star Trek the Next Generation sucked. I mean it really sucked. Only thing that might be worse are the new Star Wars movies, which also suck beyond description.

Would have been funnier if there had been a “Mom” there, who was…severely Vocal in answering his challenge.

I joined Mom’s for Liberty

When you take everyone’s money and use it to fund a single, take it or leave it, system for people’s children, somebody is always going to be unhappy.

School choice might help. It would certainly help with the other problems with our best example of totalitarian socialism.

The leftist Orlando Sentinel isn’t even firewalling this piece of propaganda:

When was the last time anyone on this forum mentioned this grifter’s name? I think you all see the trick here and that is when your career is over and you are a nobody, make an outlandish statement and watch the right go crazy. He could not have afforded to buy the attention he is getting. I’m sorry that LI saw fit to give this loser any of our time.

Ask him why there are ratings of movies to fit audience age… Ask him if 10 year olds should see XXX movies.

He totally missed the meaning when they told him that he was “special.”
