We’re not sure where George Takei got the idea that he should be taken seriously as a policy expert, but no matter how much he huffs and puffs, at the end of the day, he’s still as clueless — and tone-deaf — as they come:

More from CNN:

Actor George Takei argued that “in one core, horrifying way,” the family separations occurring at the United States’ southern border are “worse” than the Japanese-American internment camps during World War II.

“At least during the internment, my parents were able to place themselves between the horror of what we were facing and my own childish understanding of our circumstances,” Takei wrote, describing the ways his family protected him from “the grim reality” of their circumstances.

“At least during the internment, we remained a family, and I credit that alone for keeping the scars of our unjust imprisonment from deepening on my soul,” he continued. “I cannot for a moment imagine what my childhood would have been like had I been thrown into a camp without my parents. That this is happening today fills me with both rage and grief: rage toward a failed political leadership who appear to have lost even their most basic humanity, and a profound grief for the families affected.”

Feeling outraged on behalf of children being separated from their parents is fair. Comparing what’s happening at the border to the internment of Japanese Americans is not.

It’s not so odd when you consider his ignorance.

Quit while you’re behind, George.
