William Shatner Slams SJWs - Says 'Snowflakes' "Stand For Inequality" And "Misandry"

William Shatner, the actor who famously portrayed Captain James Kirk in the original 1960s run of Star Trek spoke out against his progressive critics, claiming that SJWs “stand for inequality” while defending his use of terms like “snowflake” and “misandry” – a phenomenon that angry feminists insist has been extinguished in modern society.

Shatner, a Canadian citizen who’s publicly empathized with the far-right and President Donald Trump, has repeatedly feuded with Trekkies who feel that he has turned away from the show’s culturally-progressive message (Star Trek made television history by broadcasting television’s first interracial kiss, between Shatner and castmate Nichelle Nichols). The actor often calls out examples of what he considers to be unwarranted attacks on men.






Shatner’s signature was notably absent from a February letter sent by the original Star Trek cast condemning President Donald Trump’s “racism and bigotry."

At least one liberal critic accused the actor of “tarnishing” Star Trek’s legacy with his “alt-right language,” according to Gizmodo.

"‘It seems that Shatner has not so much misunderstood the source material than turned away from it,’ Manu Saadia, author of Trekonomics: The Economics of Star Trek.


‘Star Trek is the lone TV show that has carried the torch of equality, progress, and utopia in popular culture. To see one of its most famous ambassador using alt-right language should be a wake up call to fans,’ Saadia continued.


‘It is ruinous for the 50-year-old franchise, especially so close to the launch of its first new show in more than a decade. Shatner is known to be prickly and jealous of his status in Star Trek. Maybe he can’t stand that the limelights are now trained on a new, diverse crew?’ said Saadia.”

According to Saadia, the show tacitly endorsed socialistic policies, like the notion that wealth should be evenly distributed throughout the population.

Star Trek is a lot of things but, at its heart it stands for the ideal that the fruits of technological and social progress should be equally shared among all of humanity. That’s definitely not what Shatner is advocating here,” said Saadia.

Funny, that wasn’t our interpretation.

"...at its heart it stands for the ideal that the fruits of technological and social progress should be equally shared among all of humanity."That interpretation of the show that is about warm and fuzzy ABSOLUTE equality is a stretch, to say the least. Star Trek was "the final frontier", where typically homo sapiens is incentivized to explore the frontier ( or indulge in any other "Enterprise") by the incentives of personal gain...When everyone shares the "fruits" absolutely equally, people loose the incentive to PRODUCE the fruits.After all, the damn ship WAS called the "ENTERPRISE" for cryin' out loud!!!!

Pilgrims were almost wiped out from starvation and exposure when they first arrived due to the socialist, redistribution concept of "from those who have to those who need'. No one wanted to struggle and work grow food just for it to be forcibly taken away. Thank God for the local Indian tribes who fed and saved them those first years until they forced themselves to a more merit based, capitalistic bartering system where they could sell the products of their labor instead of having them taken and given away. No one wanted to produce in redistribution ecosystem.

He wasn't a misogynist.  He didn't hate women.  I would argue that he loved women very much.  The rest of your post is utter horseshit too.  Kirk had many monologues throughout the series that were very impressive from a philosophical standpoint.  In fact, Kirk schooled Spock many a'times about the complexities of the human condition. Did you ever watch the show?

  God,,, having not watched television in a decade or so …. I missed this .. Hollywood does such a great of romanticizing little stuff, My first gun was an AR-7… a little survival  .22. with a barrel and action that goes into a plastic stock that is water –tight.It spent a few thousands of hours with me (unauthorized) in the air. The producers make it look and sound almost like an M-16. Henry makes it now… great little gun… I still have two of them. https://youtu.be/Hfc7l1vz2jU..and I could wing that shooter at 20 feet in a heartbeat...although he wouldn't be dropped like on tv... it would take a couple more well-placed shots.

The thing is Kirk was who ever they wrote him to be. While most agree Kirk was at his knighthood best in "City on the edge" I think the best episode was "All our Yesterdays"

Mr. Atoz: You are evidently a suicidal maniac. I don't understand what you're trying to do, but if you continue, both of us will die. And I for one, do not wish death.

Live long and prosper.

I can see what you are trying to get at, but I have to strongly disagree. Treating women as women is not misogynistic - it's both natural and healthy. Treating men and women the same, as if they were the same is both unnatural and a sign of cultural (and mental) sickness.Like it or not we are biological life forms with actual (not appropriated) genders. This means we have biological drives. The West has abandoned the embracement of these drives in favour of Socialistic Utopian dreams - turning our "society" into a living nightmare and effectively ending the family unit.Women have their place. So do men. Disliking this fact does not make it less so. Abandoning or distaining this fact can only lead to our people's doom - which is where we have been headed since at least the 60's.

That's gold *pressed* latinum.I always wondered about their choice of words when trying to invent a fictional currency.They claimed repeatedly throughout the series that gold is ubiquitous and quite worthless in the ST universe, but couldn't come up with a name for their currency other than Gold and Platinum. I guess that the value of the precious metals is too deeply ingrained in the human psyche.

Not to mention that Kirk regularly defied orders, imposed himself on multiple peoples, used weapons with glee and never got fired for it. Not just a rampant individualist but part of a continued global (now universal) expansionist military empire.Now if we can toss all that and just bring back the miniskirt. And when women's empowerment meant they liked to fuck like bunnies.

"(Star Trek made television history by broadcasting television’s first interracial kiss, between Shatner and castmate Nichelle Nichols).  That's been repeated a thousand times and no one ever points out..." Well, some people point out it wasn't the first. It's all there in Google. But the whoever wrote this piece of trash article didn't bother to know his shit. Like when people were claiming Ludicrous speed was named after a rapper. FFS.
