In Terminator II: Judgement Day, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s T-500 uttered the famous, heartbreaking line “I cannot self-terminate” requiring Edward Furlong’s John Connor to lower him into molten steel. That may have been true for the futuristic killing machine, but based on his appearance on CNN with the traitor Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman it appears ol’ Arnie has finally cast aside any notions of conservative values and ‘self terminated’ about half of his marketability as well as some sponsorships.
Arnold Says “Screw Your Freedoms”
During the interview, the former Governor of California who once bafflingly referred to himself as “Conservative” called Americans who reject authoritarian mask and vaccine mandates “schmucks” adding “screw your freedom” for good measure.
“Yeah, you have the freedom to wear no mask, but you know something?
You’re a schmuck for not wearing a mask,
because you are…supposed to protect your fellow members around you,” he said. “It’s just that simple.”
Schwarzenegger added, “There is a virus here. It kills people. And the only way we prevent it is to get vaccinated, we wear masks, we do social distancing, washing your hands all the time, and not just to think about
‘well my freedom is being kind of disturbed here.’ No. Screw your freedom,” Schwarzenegger said
Yesterday while I was talking with @AVindman and @biannagolodryga about Alex’s new book, I was asked about my comment about COVID misinformation that all of you are sharing. Here was my answer: pic.twitter.com/8LKhPIJ1Eu

When he wasn’t heaping praise on Lt. Col. Vindman, calling him “heroic” and bashing President Donald Trump and his supporters, suggesting that they were attempting to “overthrow this country”, Schwarzenegger was expressing his great admiration for the thoroughly disgraced Dr. Anthony Fauci.
At least he’s starting to feel the pinch almost immediately. According to The Hill,
“A spokesperson for the sports supplement company REDCON1 told The Hill that they chose to discontinue their partnership with the former California governor because of his “anti-America” comments, also pulling out of the Schwarzenegger bodybuilding event next month.
“We elected to discontinue support due to Arnold’s comment, ‘Screw Your Freedoms.’ With the global influence Arnold beholds we find that ideology dangerous and anti-America and community.”
In this one interview, the former “Governator” has irreconcilably crossed the Rubicon. While there can certainly be Conservatives and Republicans who disagree with or even oppose Donald Trump due to his personality or manner or his big government spending. While people can differ on the philosophy of masking or vaccination, to answer these concerns by calling the American people who refuse to bow to authoritarian dictates “schmucks” and tell them “screw your freedom” then you can in absolutely no way consider yourself a conservative, a Republican or even a patriotic American for that matter.
Arnold Schwarzenegger has made his choice and has chosen to adhere to a Government that values the collective over the individual and control over freedom and that simply isn’t American.
