Like many of you out there, I am an American voter who who trusts that our checks and balances will protect our democracy from harm.

Oh, brother! I cannot believe what I recently found out about Arnold Schwarzenegger. Well, actually, I can believe that he would do something so stupid, because he has always been dead between the ears from the time I first saw him on the silver screen. Let's just say that I have never liked him in his role as a politician. He may be a good actor, but he will never be the next Abraham Lincoln or Thomas Jefferson.
I viewed Mr. Schwarzenegger's recent video against President Trump, and what he said in that video appalled me. I'm all for free speech; but if Mr. Schwarzenegger is going to state an opinion on camera to the entire planet, he should at least say something worth hearing.
Mr. Schwarzenegger came out in his video and maliciously slandered President Trump. Then he gave former Vice President Joe Biden a love fest. You can watch the video below.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Makes A Fool Out Of Himself On Camera And Disrespects Our Nation's 45th President
My great-great-grandfather was an Austrian who emigrated from Europe to the United States of America back when our nation was receiving droves of immigrants at Ellis Island. Well, let me just say that having Austrian in his lineage is the only thing that Mr. Schwarzenegger has in common with me. I find him revolting for having done what he did.
1. Arnold Schwarzenegger Is Clueless About World History, Even About The History Of German-Speaking Nations
Luckily, I left California six years before Mr. Schwarzenegger entered office as that state's governor. I will not deny that he has always been an excellent actor, but I have never liked him as a politician. I once met two women who had lived in California during his gubernatorial tenure, and they even said that he should stick with acting and stay away from politics inasmuch as he is not gubernatorial material.
I used to watch Real Time With Bill Maher on HBO, because Bill Maher had interesting guests on that television show of his. I have always viewed Mr. Maher to be a wiseacre, but I do commend him for bringing guests onto his show from all sides of the political spectrum so that he and his guests can have healthy debates over political issues upon which they may not agree.
What I have always found noteworthy about Mr. Maher was that he is friends with Mike Huckabee and Ann Coulter despite that he is a liberal and they are strong conservatives. Whenever he has ever had Ms. Coulter on his HBO show, he always thanks her for coming into what he refers to as the lion's den inasmuch as she is well aware that his television show attracts a large number of liberal viewers.
Anyhow, whenever Mr. Maher has badmouthed Mr. Schwarzenegger in any manner on his HBO show, I have always found wisdom to his words despite that I disagree with Mr. Maher on a number of political and social issues. His biggest complaint about Mr. Schwarzenegger was that he was an ineffective governor for the state of California. Because Mr. Maher had to live in California throughout Mr. Schwarzenegger's gubernatorial regime, I have always been inclined to believe everything that Mr. Maher has said about Mr. Schwarzenegger; and it looks as though it has all turned out to be true.
Back in 2003, when Mr. Schwarzenegger was first running for governor of California, I found the whole idea of it to be laughable. Even back then I felt that he had nothing to offer the people of that state. Then again, everyone was running for governor of California in that state's recall election back then, including Larry Flynt. Therefore, I guess that nothing should have surprised anyone about that same gubernatorial race back then.
After Mr. Schwarzenegger was elected to office as Governor of California in 2003, I had believed back then that his governorship was going to be a disaster; and it was. Many Californians were glad to see him leave office after eight years. Not that I am claiming that Jerry Brown and Gavin Newsom have made better governors for that state since then. They haven't. However, if Mr. Schwarzenegger cannot even get his history right, there was no way that he could have been a good leader in any capacity.
In his video above, Mr. Schwarzenegger plays melodramatic music while he is delivering his intellectually bankrupt diatribe to the whole world. What stands out so conspicuously in terms that he does not know his history very well is that he erroneously compares the January 6, 2021 breach of the Capitol Hill building with a historical event that he misnames as the "Kristallnacht." However, in a YouTube video, Gonzalo Lira (also known as "Coach Red Pill") points out that the actual historical event that Mr. Schwarzenegger was really referring to was the "Reichstag fire." You can watch that same video by Mr. Lira that I have embedded in my article titled "A Biden Administration Could Provoke A Major Exodus Of Americans From Their Homeland" for all the details of that same historical event.
Mr. Lira informs in his YouTube video that Adolf Hilter used the "Reichstag fire" event as a basis to pass a whole host of domestic-terrorism laws in Germany that gave Adolf Hitler and his Nazi party the power to suppress anyone they suspected of being a domestic terrorist. Mr. Lira gives an accurate description of the events that comprised that particular episode in history.
In Mr. Lira's YouTube video, he accuses Mr. Schwarzenegger of being an idiot who doesn't know his history, and Mr. Lira is right. Therefore, Mr. Schwarzenegger's comparison of "Kristallnacht" with the above-described January 6, 2021 incident at the Capitol Hill building immediately falls apart in his speech against President Trump, and his speech only gets worse.
2. Arnold Schwarzenegger's Statements About President Donald J. Trump Are Defamatory At Best
Mr. Schwarzenegger's video-recorded speech could not be any more offensive and misleading to the American people than it is. He claims that President Trump sought to overturn the results of the 2020 American presidential election, but then he insists that this same presidential race was a "fair election." No, Mr. Schwarzenegger, it was not a fair election. It reeked with all sorts of fraud, tampering, and polling procedural derelictions, among other things.
In his video above, Mr. Schwarzenegger alleges that President Trump sought a coup by "misleading the people with lies." President Trump did not seek any coup; and if anyone has misled the American people with lies, former Vice President Biden, Senator Kamala Harris, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Senator Chuck Schumer, CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC, the New York Times, and The Washington Post have all done so.
In his video above, Mr. Schwarzenegger does the unthinkable and actually equates President Trump to Adolf Hitler. Now, this is where I almost stopped watching his video, because it made me feel as though I wanted to barf. President Trump wants to protect us Americans from all the Adolf Hitlers of the world. However, you, Mr. Schwarzenegger, couldn't really care less about what happens to our nation.
In his video-recorded speech above, Mr. Schwarzenegger claims that President Trump will soon be as irrelevant as an "old Tweet." Really, Mr. Schwarzenegger? You seem to be describing yourself. Many Americans will proudly remember President Trump for his noteworthy leadership for a long time, and his name will go down in the American history books as a champion of freedom and prosperity; but after a hundred years and after all of your movies and television shows get scrapped to make room for new movies and new television programming, nobody is going to remember you, Mr. Schwarzenegger.
In his video above, Mr. Schwarzenegger states, "But what are we to make of officials who have enabled his lies and treachery?" You have to be talking about former Vice President Biden instead of President Trump, Mr. Schwarzenegger. It was former Vice President Biden who stole the 2020 American presidential election in November of last year. President Trump is trying to save our nation from jerks like you.
In his video above, Mr. Schwarzenegger mendaciously implies that the January 6, 2021 breach at the Capitol Hill building was somehow President Trump's fault and that his political colleagues were in on it. Get real and grown a brain, Mr. Schwarzenegger. President Trump did not tell anyone to breach the Capitol Hill building on January 6, 2021 and he did not incite a riot. He is being persecuted and railroaded. If you don't believe me, read my article titled "President Donald J. Trump Is Being Persecuted" to get all the details of what bad actors are doing to him to ruin his life and his future.
President Trump verbally condemned the January 6, 2021 breach at the Capitol Hill building. President Trump's political colleagues and allies were also very disgusted at what happened there as well. Mr. Schwarzenegger is clearly out of touch with reality.
In his video above, Mr. Schwarzenegger accuses President Trump of being a failed leader, and he has the audacity to state that President Trump will go down in history as the worst president ever. No, Mr. Schwarzenegger. You are a failed leader, and you will go down in history as the worst governor of California ever. I will never address you as "Governor Schwarzenegger," because your election to office and tenure in office as that state's governor was an absolute aberration at best.
So many years after I had left California and moved back to the East Coast, I once intercepted a telephone message on my voicemail that was a recording of Mr. Schwarzenegger attempting to recruit people into some kind of home-based-business scam. Mr. Schwarzenegger was still the governor of California back then. Therefore, it greatly disgusted and appalled me that he would be involved in something so reprehensible as that. I do not remember the name of the outfit that he was involved in, but I do remember having researched it and finding out that it was not legitimate.
In his video above, Mr. Schwarzenegger spends a great chunk of his time giving former Vice President Biden a love fest for a presidential election that he stole from President Trump. Mr. Schwarzenegger only demonstrates that he is clearly what is called a RINO Republican who has sold out to bad actors. The only reason that he joined the Republican Party back when he was running for governor of California was because just about everyone was running for governor of California on the Republican ticket back then, even unlikely candidates like Gary Coleman and Larry Flynt. However, Mr. Schwarzenegger has never cared about the actual ideologies of the Republican Party, and he only latched onto the coattail of the Republican Party to serve his own interests rather than those of the people who voted him into office.
3. Arnold Schwarzenegger Is So Full Of Hot Air That It Is Not Even Funny
In his video above, Mr. Schwarzenegger preaches about how elected officials need to have a public servant's heart. I actually agree with him on that point, even though I realize that he does not have his head in the right place regarding our nation's 45th president. I also believe that President Trump has a public servant's heart, because he has done everything for the American people while he has been in the Oval Office; whereas former Vice President Biden is going to sell out our nation to the People's Republic of China if and when he moves into the White House.
In a recent speech that President Trump gave to the American people, he warned us all that free speech is under assault like never before in the wake of a tentative Biden presidential administration. In that speech, he laid out the facts as they were in terms of what our nation could be facing if former Vice President Biden does move into the White House on January 20, 2021. You can watch the video below.
President Donald J. Trump Voices His Current Concerns To The American People
In his speech above, President Trump condemned the activities of the Capitol Hill building breach that took place on January 6, 2021. He spoke about the achievements that our Federal government has made under his presidential administration to find a cure for COVID-19. President Trump delivered a speech like a true patriot who upholds the laws of our land and cares about the American people. He commended Americans who have defended our national security. Nowhere in that speech of his did our 45th president exhibit the characteristics of someone who would deliberately incite a riot to promote domestic terrorism.
Mr. Schwarzenegger is stirring up trouble in misleading Americans to believe that President Trump is some kind of clandestine subversive who wishes to destroy our democracy. Quite the contrary, President Trump has strived to protect our nation from hostile elements that could bring down our entire civilization.
President Trump had nothing to do with the breach upon the Capitol Hill building that took place on January 6, 2021. As a matter of fact, there has been a recent report that a left-wing extremist named John Sullivan has been arrested as a suspect for inciting a riot and causing that breach to take place at the Capitol Hill building. You can watch the news clip regarding this recent arrest in the YouTube video below.
A Left-Wing Extremist Named John Sullivan Has Been Arrested For Inciting A Riot At The Capitol On January 6, 2021
I remember when Norman Lear appeared on Real Time With Bill Maher several years ago. He actually appeared on a television screen in front of Bill Maher so that Mr. Maher could interview him. Mr. Maher nearly jumped out of his seat in shock when Mr. Lear told him that he was a conservative. Mr. Lear then clarified to Mr. Maher and the audience that Mr. Lear was a conservative in that he believed that our nation should adhere to the United States Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Declaration of Independence so that we can preserve our freedoms and rights. In other words, Mr. Lear was clarifying that being a conservative does not mean that someone is a Puritan but rather someone who sticks with the status quo in protecting the rights and liberties that our forefathers fought so hard to give us. As a moderate Independent, I can even say that Mr. Schwarzenegger doesn't appear to understand any of these same principles, and he doesn't appear to have a proper command of all the facts pertaining to his spiel about the situation at hand with our nation.
In his video above, it is funny that Mr. Schwarzenegger uses the Conan sword as a symbol of his so-called points about leadership, because Conan is a fictitious character from a movie he starred in back in 1982. Then again, Mr. Schwarzenegger does not appear to be able to differentiate fiction from facts. He is definitely not the brightest bulb in the bunch. His video-recorded speech is a complete disgrace, and he should remove it from the Internet.
4. My Conclusion To This Topic
I have nothing against celebrities running for office. After all, the late Ronald Reagan was a famous actor and he served as our nation's president from 1981 to 1989. Jesse Ventura made an excellent governor for the people of Minnesota.
Nevertheless, whenever a celebrity or a movie entertainer like Arnold Schwarzenegger runs for a political office that they are not qualified for, it is bad enough. However, when that same celebrity or movie entertainer gets in front of a camera and insults and offends our 45th president, that loser needs to be ignored.
Just by piecing together all of the events that went on in our 2020 American presidential election from the evening of November 3, 2020 on into the morning of November 4, 2020, it does not take a rocket scientist to figure out that our presidential election was stolen away from President Trump. A. B. Williams provides a recapitulation of those same events in her article titled "What Are the Odds; Depends on Whose Stacking the Odds Against You, a Post-Election Observation." If Mr. Schwarzenegger is too dumb to see the proof in the pudding in that respect, then he really has his head in the clouds.
Now, I am not a fan of cancel culture. I also strongly believe in the 1st Amendment to the United States Constitution that guarantees each and every one of us freedom of speech. However, if Mr. Schwarzenegger keeps his video-recorded speech on the Internet, then it is my suggestion to him that he never runs for office again inasmuch as nobody will likely vote for him. As Americans, I guess that the best we can do in response to his video-recorded speech is give him no importance and not watch any more of his videos if he continues on slandering our 45th president.
I will say this much. I will not be subscribing to Mr. Schwarzenegger's YouTube channel in the near future or ever.

@MG Singh emge Thank you for your comment. And what is interesting is that according to Judge Jeanine Pirro on Fox News, President Trump did not give his big speech to Trump supporters until after the breach at the Capitol Hill building. Therefore, President Trump could not have incited that riot despite what Arnold Schwarzenegger claims.

Nice article on the ex-governor of California. This chap like many others was allergic to trump all along and now, of course, he's gone and made this silly statement. One can safely ignore him.
