Captain Kirk rides to the defense of American historical accuracy

The Culture

Actor William Shatner of “Star Trek” fame has made it clear that he has no interest in getting involved in American politics — mainly because he happens to be Canadian.

When asked about his politically minded costar George Takei or controversial American President Donald Trump, Shatner has always given the same response:

“I don’t want to discuss Trump or Takei. Listen, I’m Canadian and I’m apolitical. I love America. I consider myself a guest here.”

But where Shatner apparently draws the line is the forced removal of history — via artwork and monuments — from the nation where he says he has been honored to spend time as a guest.

It all started when a few folks found out that Shatner had donated some money that was used to build a Louisville, Kentucky, statue of acclaimed horseman and American Gen. John B. Castleman — understandable, since Shatner is an avid horseman and elite breeder himself.

But then they found out that Castleman had also served in the Confederate Army during the Civil War:
