Although George Takei is best known for his role as Hikaru Sulu on the popular 1960s television series “Star Trek,” he’s also a political activist and author who has remained highly engaged with the Democratic Party.

In a recent Twitter post, Takei told Americans: “We can endure higher prices for food and gas if it means putting the screws to Putin. Consider it a patriotic donation in the fight for freedom over tyranny.”

There were two serious issues with Takei’s comment, and the well-deserved backlash came quickly and severely.

The first: Takei has earned millions over the course of his decades-long acting career.

The second issue: he has bought into the Democrats’ latest spin that Putin is solely to blame for higher U.S. food and gas prices. Party leaders have begun to call it the “Putin Price Hike.” This canard is simply a last-ditch effort from a party that knows they’re going to be shellacked in the November midterms.

On Thursday, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported the February Consumer Price Index which showed a year-over-year gain of 7.9 %. The December CPI was 7.5 % and that belongs entirely to Biden. The remaining 0.4 % and anything beyond can be attributed to Russia’s invasion, but Biden owns the first 7.5 %.

“Last week that inflation is costing the average U.S. household $296 per month. That’s $3,600 per year, an amount that many families will find hard to look at as a “patriotic donation in the fight for freedom over tyranny,” The New York Post reported.

Last month CNBC featured a PYMNTS/Lending Club poll which found that in December 2021, 61 % of Americans were living paycheck to paycheck. In May 2021, the number had been 54 %. This is what happens when inflation rises by 7 % in one year.

Additionally, a separate CNBC report looked at inflation’s impact upon workers’ wages. On Thursday, the Labor Department announced that although employers increased workers’ average hourly earnings in 2021, “‘real’ hourly earnings (wage growth minus inflation) fell by 1.7% from January 2021 to January 2022.”
