Schwarzenegger schools Trump on how to respond to Nazis

Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, using a bobblehead doll and a signature “terminate” line, issued a powerful response to the deadly violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, last week, saying exactly what President Donald Trump wouldn’t after white supremacists and neo-Nazis rallied together to promote anti-Semitism and bigotry.

Speaking directly to Trump, the former Republican governor said the president has a “moral responsibility to send an unequivocal message that you won’t stand for hate and racism.” 

Schwarzenegger then wrote Trump’s response for him. 

“The country that defeated Hitler’s armies is no place for Nazi flags,” Schwarzenegger said on behalf of the president, represented by a Trump bobblehead. “The party of Lincoln won’t stand with those who carry the battle flag of the failed Confederacy.” 

Schwarzenegger continued his video with a blunt message for white supremacists and neo-Nazis, calling them “losers” and referring to his experience growing up in Austria amid the ashes of World War II. 

“Growing up, I was surrounded by broken men ― men who came home from the war filled with shrapnel and guilt,” he said. “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.” 

The former body-builder and action film hero ended his statement by saying, “Let’s terminate hate.”

Following the violence in Charlottesville, Schwarzenegger donated $100,000 to an anti-hate organization after saying he was horrified to see images of Nazis and white supremacists on American soil.

    wonderful words Sir, but isn't the fight against hate and racism an unwinnable fight? isn't prejudice, racism and bigotry a disease that is un-treatable?

    the mental notions and physical practices so ingrained into the psyche that it is now or may even possess a genetic factor?
