Arnold Schwarzenegger visits Auschwitz to fight hate

I hope they sent him back naked in one of those bubbles, otherwise he's a little late.  In 2100, I bet he'll show up in Ukraine to fight Russians.

Should probably aim for ~2120. They'll probably be invading Ukraine again at that point.

/Afterwards, he can go fight the Fascists elected to power in Italy again.

I like that Ahhnald actually does seem to believe the things he says.  As time goes on, I wonder if he more and more regrets ever identifying as Republican.

That was my thought.  I thought he was a Republican.

The story is, shortly after he started having success in Hollywood someone asked him which party he identified with. He responded "Which one is for lower taxes?" I can completely understand why a recent immigrant having his first financial success would respond that way. And then he became a Republican figurehead and there was a financial incentive to stay in the party.

But he's never acted like a Republican. He distanced himself from Bush, he outright stood against TFG, and he's pushing a vegan lifestyle for god's sake. Staying on the R side means that R's will occasionally listen to him when he's the voice of reason, so I'm glad he's there.

You can argue that he was a lousy governor, but he was damn sure better than whatever twit the R's would have run instead of him.

"I admired Hitler, for instance, because he came from being a little man with almost no formal education, up to power. I admire him for being such a good public speaker and for what he did with it." - Arnold Schwarzenegger

It's a very clean admiring of Hitler. The way many do.

I feel like I am taking Crazy Pills(tm). How was this guy ever endorsed as a Republican? Was it 1985 in 2003? Man, Obama really threw white people for a loop around here (here being the 45% of 350 million assholes).

No one who speaks German could be a bad man.

He wasn't much of a Governator, but he was better than Gray Davis.

Maybe he's trying to bring back the Rockefeller Republican.

If you had told me 30 years ago that Arnold Schwarzenegger would be the most sane Republican, I would have asked for what you were smoking.

Yet we are.

This brings back sad memories. My grandfather died at Auschwitz. He fell out of a guard tower.

People who would have been guards and not subjects of the murder program probably have a very different experience when visiting Holocaust sites.
