Like virtually everyone in Hollywood, Arnold Schwarzenegger hasn’t held back his anti-Trump views.
But he just crossed the line.
And his new anti-Trump lie is a slap in the face to every holocaust survivor.
Liberals are using the violence at the Capitol to smear President Trump and all his supporters as treasonous terrorists.
They ignore the fact that the violence was spurred by a very small minority of the over 100,000 at the protest and was roundly – and immediately – condemned by conservatives across the spectrum.
The violence was despicable, but nothing compared to the months of nationwide violence caused at the hands of Black Lives Matter and Antifa last year.
But because it was Trump supporters causing the violence, the left is furious.
And Arnold Schwarzenegger made his anger known in an online video where he compared the violence to Kristallnacht, a pogrom against Jews carried out by SA paramilitary forces in 1938.
Nearly 100 people were killed the reign of terror known as the Night of Broken Glass.
“As an immigrant to this country, I would like to say a few words to my fellow Americans and to our friends around the world about the events of recent days,” he said “I grew up in Austria. I’m very aware of Kristallnacht, or the Night of Broken Glass. It was a night of rampage against Jews carried out in 1938 by the Nazi equivalent of the Proud Boys.”
He went on to call President Trump “the worst president ever,” and to claim that Republicans that support President Trump are “complicit” in the violence.
Schwarzenegger briefly mentioned his father, stating he would come home drunk and frequently beat his wife and kids over his guilt stemming from Austria’s role in World War II.
But he doesn’t go into much detail.
In reality, his father, Gustav Schwarzenegger was a military police officer who joined the Nazi Party before his country was ever annexed from Nazi Germany.
And he doesn’t mention that his father applied to join the Sturmabteilung, and was awarded the Iron Cross for his time serving under the Nazis.
For having such a checkered family past, it is hypocritical for him to call people he doesn’t even know “Nazis,” for supporting a president whose policies are entirely antithetical to those his father fought for.
