Governor Schwarzenegger’s Message Following This Week’s Attack On The Capitol

Arnold Schwarzenegger compares the Capitol Hill riots to Nazi Germany, says that Trump will be remembered as ‘the worst president ever’. Governor Schwarzenegger’s Message Following This Week’s Attack On The Capitol



‘I grew up in Austria. I’m very aware of Kristallnacht, or the Night of Broken Glass. It was a night of rampage against the Jews carried out in 1938 by the Nazi equivalent of the Proud Boys. Wednesday was the Day of Broken Glass right here in the United States.’

That’s Arnold Schwarzenegger, the former California governor, comparing the events of last week to Nazi Germany, laying the blame for the violence at the feet of President Trump.

“The broken glass was in the windows of the United States Capitol, but the mob did not just shatter the windows of the Capitol. They shattered the ideas we took for granted,” Schwarzenegger continued. “They did not just break down the doors of the building of American democracy. They trampled the very principles on which our country was founded.”

And, he said, it was all built on falsehoods by the president.

“President Trump sought to overturn the results of an election, and of a fair election,” he explained in a tweet that went viral on Sunday. “He sought a coup by misleading people with lies.”

Schwarzenegger, in his video message, said he saw similar events in his homeland after the breakdown in democracy surrounding the Second World War.

“I’ve never shared this so publicly because it’s a painful memory, but my father would come home drunk, once or twice a week, and he would scream and hit us and scare my mother,” he said. “It all started with lies and and lies and lies and intolerance… there is fear and all over the world that something like this could happen right here.”

Schwarzenegger went on to bash Trump as a “failed leader” who “will go down in history as the worst president ever. The good thing is that he will soon be as irrelevant as an old tweet.”

This isn’t the first time Schwarzenegger has feuded publicly with Trump. Back in 2017, he announced he would not return for a second season as Trump’s replacement on “The Apprentice,” blaming the president’s involvement in the show as an executive producer as “baggage.”

Trump fired back by saying that Schwarzenegger “was fired by his bad (pathetic) ratings, not by me.”

Schwarzenegger, Wielding Sword, Says U.S. Will Emerge Stronger

Arnold Schwarzenegger called for those responsible for the violent protest at the U.S. Capitol to be held accountable, while reminding viewers that America grows stronger in the midst of trial.

The action-film star slammed President Donald Trump and compared last week’s storming of the Capitol by Trump supporters to Kristallnacht, when Jewish people in Germany and Austria were killed and their businesses ransacked in a Nazi rampage in 1938.

“I grew up in Austria. I’m very aware of Kristallnacht, or the Night of Broken Glass,” said Schwarzenegger, a naturalized U.S. citizen who served two terms as Republican governor of California.

The seven-minute video posted on Twitter garnered over 14 million views within eight hours of its upload and has since exceeded 15 million.

Schwarzenegger gripped the sword he wielded in “Conan the Barbarian,” a career-defining 1982 film, for part of his message.“The more you temper a sword, the stronger it becomes,” he said. “Our democracy is like the steel of this sword. The more it’s tempered, the stronger it becomes.”

The message was the latest from prominent Republican Party members distancing themselves from Trump, who the former governor said “sought a coup by misleading people with lies.”

“The good thing is he will soon be as irrelevant as an old tweet,” Schwarzenegger said.

Schwarzenegger, 73, called for unity and support for Joe Biden’s upcoming presidency. Biden’s success is the nation’s success, Schwarzenegger said, a sentiment that has been “liked” more than 600,000 times so far.
