William Shatner Called Liberal Social Justice Warriors ‘Snowflakes,’ and the Internet WENT NUTS


William Shatner

Dear Social Justice Warriors (SJWs): Captain Kirk is tired of your crap. And he isn’t afraid to let you know his displeasure.


William Shatner, the iconic Star Trek actor, is pretty active on Twitter, often engaging fans and letting loose with his opinions, regardless of what people think. Although he usually stays politics-free, his opinions sometimes lean conservative (or perhaps libertarian), and he often targets spoiled millennials and entitled liberals with his tweets. Even at the age of 86, Shatner has a sharp wit and killer insight, which drives folks mad.

According to a story on Daily Wire, Shatner weighed in on social justice warriors, referring to them as “snowflakes” and accusing them of misandry, the hatred of males. Of course, that did not sit well with liberal keyboard warriors, who took Shatner to task.

One tried to equate SJWs with the civil rights activists of the 1960s. He told Shatner that when Captain Kirk caused an uproar when he kissed a black woman on Star Trek in the 1960s, SJWs would have supported him through all of the blacklash. Shatner was having none of that.

Shatner then slammed social justice warriors again, accusing them of really only caring about feeling superior.

That set off an army of angry tweeters.

Others, however, were just sad and bitter.

Even with all of the hate, Shatner never apologized, and never clarified his statements to make them more politically correct. He said what he believed, and stood by his comments. One would expect nothing less from Captain Kirk.
