On Thursday, actor and former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) gave a “lesson” to President Donald Trump on how he should address neo-Nazis and white nationalists in America.
Incorporating props and speaking directly to the president, Schwarzenegger posted a video to Twitter which got more than 100,000 likes in the first 12 hours it was posted.
“There are not two sides to bigotry,” Schwarzenegger stated. “And there are not two sides to hatred. And if you choose to march with a flag that symbolizes the slaughter of millions of people, there are not two sides to that. The only way to beat the loud, angry voices of hate is to meet them with louder, more reasonable voices.”
“That includes you, President Trump,” he said, pointing to the camera. “In fact, as president of this great country, you have a moral responsibility to send an unequivocal message that you won’t stand for hate and racism. Let me help you write your speech a little bit.”
Subsequently, Schwarzenegger took out a bobble-head doll of Trump and acted as if he was speaking on behalf of the president.
“The country that defeated Hitler’s armies is no place for Nazi flags,” Schwarzenegger declared as “Trump.”
“The party of Lincoln won’t stand with those who carry the battle flag of the failed Confederacy,” he added.
Schwarzenneger further explained that he understood what Nazism was like since he had been born in Austria just two years after World World II came to an end.
“Growing up, I was surrounded by broken men — men who came home from the war filled with shrapnel and guilt,” Schwarzenegger said as pictures of the horrors of World War II showed up on screen. “Men who were misled into a losing ideology. … And these ghosts who you idolize spent the rest of their lives living in shame. And right now they’re resting in hell.”
