Actor George Takei takes on Trump

Posted By on Tue, Nov 29, 2016 at 2:34 PM

Actor George Takei, whose family was incarcerated in a Japanese internment camp in Rohwer, Ark. (Desha County) during World War II, took to Twitter today in response to a chilling Tweet from Donald Trump in which the president-elect said those who burn the American flag should "perhaps" be stripped of their citizenship or be jailed.

No matter what side of the political fence you're on, Takei's 27 little words should ring in the heart of every patriotic American who cares about the free speech protections afforded by the First Amendment.
