Arnold goes Full Nazi

Arnold Schwarzenegger has come out of political retirement, as there have been events so horrible that they must be denounced. Transcript:
I hope that you will hear what I have to say. And may I remind you that I speak with the same heartfelt concern as I spoke to the American people when there was an attempted insurrection on January sixth last year, when a wild crowd was storming the U.S. Capital, trying to overthrow our government.

You see, there are moments like this that are so wrong, and then we have to speak up. This is exactly the same with your government.

Got that? The Russia-Ukraine War is "exactly the same" as the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol election protest!

The J6 protest was a mostly peaceful demonstration of unarmed citizens demanding that the election outcome reflect votes properly cast. They believed that the election was being stolen.

Reasonable people can differ over whether the election was stolen. Everyone agrees that Biden won by taking advantage of questionable rule changes that had never been used before, and from votes that were impossible to verify. But whether or not you agree that this should be called a stolen election, protesting a dubious election procedures is an essential part of a free democracy.

And his denunciation of the Ukraine War is exactly the same!

He also explains how his father was a Nazi who hated the Russians. But Ukraine does not need to be de-nazified.

I thought that covid infected the world with a madness. Now the world has gone mad over this silly war. Congress had to listen to Ukraine president Zelensky compare the war to the Pearl Harbor and 9/11 hijacking attacks. Those sucked us into massive boondoggles. Zelensky appears to want World War III, and it is scary how many politicians are taking the bait.

I wonder how much of the hostility towards Russians is based on them being White Christians. Russian citizens who have nothing to do with the war are being canceled. If they were non-white, this would be considered racist. You were considered a bigot if you asked Moslems to disavow terrorism after 9/11/2001, and yet Russians outside Russia are being asked to disavow Putin.
