Actor George Takei, best known for his role as Hikaru Sulu in Star Trek (the original series), has long been a strongly liberal personality on very nearly everything. His social media accounts on both Facebook and Twitter have huge followings — his Facebook account alone has nearly 10 million subscribers.
Although he does not represent all liberals everywhere, the hypocrisy shown in a pair of his tweets does represent a lot of liberals’ sentiment before and after November’s presidential election.
Namely, before the election: “Trump supporters, accept the results of the election. Nothing’s rigged. Quit whining.”
Then after the election: “Hey, not cool! I want a recount!”
Trump supporters, well intentioned as you are, please repeat after me: “It’s not rigged, he’s just losing.”

“Trump supporters, well intentioned as you are, please repeat after me: ‘It’s not rigged, he’s just losing,’” Takei wrote Oct. 23.
At the time, President-elect Donald Trump was not doing well in the polls, and if you can remember (it seems like so long ago, now) Trump’s chances for victory did not seem good.
Of course, Trump fixed that by winning — thoroughly beating former Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton in the race for enough electoral votes to secure the presidency.
If there was hacking or tampering with ballots anywhere, both sides should support a review. America deserves clean elections.

Apparently, exactly a month after his earlier tweet, Takei thinks that elections, in fact, can be rigged.
“If there was hacking or tampering with ballots anywhere, both sides should support a review. America deserves clean elections,” Takei tweeted.
Now, there’s nothing wrong with a vote recount — Republicans want whoever actually won the election to be declared the winner — but if Clinton were currently president-elect and Republicans were demanding a recount, well, we’d be called crazy.
Even former Green Party candidate Jill Stein is calling for a recount, according to CNN, as if she ever had a serious chance at becoming president of the United States.
That’s liberal hypocrisy for you.
