No, James T. Kirk is NOT Like George W. Bush, Orci
And, yet again, I’ve read a comment by Orci that makes me want to hurl.
"You can make the case that Kirk is very (George W.) Bush-like," Orci said.
No. STOP. Kirk ALWAYS accepted responsibility for his crew and OWNED UP to his mistakes.
And there’s just a tad bit of a difference between Kirk’s inexperience as a Captain and the impulsivity of youth compared to George W. Bush’s MONUMENTAL clusterfuck of a presidency, Orci — you absolute tool.
Why are these people writing Star Trek? Why?
Fuck. I’m reblogging my own post because I”m so pissed. So this is what Orci had to say in the comments:
“boborci - December 1, 2009
7. Kirk_Vs_Kahn – December 1, 2009
Seems to have some commoninalities in bio — children of Men in charge, fratty, drank too much, made it to highest rank with no real qualifications!
I KEEEEED, of course!”
FUCK YOU. JUST FUCK YOU, ORCI.
Kirk in TOS didn’t drink too much.
Kirk in TOS didn’t get his captaincy through fucking nepotism.
Kirk in TOS was eminently qualified.
Kirk in TOS wasn’t “fratty” — he was a “stack of books with legs.”
GOD FUCKING DAMMIT. Just because your SHIT writing tried to make him this way does not mean it’s a fucking accurate characterization. And the fact that he fucking ADMITS that Kirk has no real qualifications to be Captain…
HOW CAN HE CLAIM TO BE A FAN OF STAR TREK?
And saying “I kid” just makes you look like an even bigger asshole because these are legitimate criticisms of the 2009 film.
