Arnold Schwarzenegger Warns those on a "Path of Hate" and Antisemitism, They Could End Up a "Loser" Like his Nazi Father
"When Arnold Schwarzenegger visited the Auschwitz concentration camp site a few months ago, it was "one of the darkest moments of my life." Now, he's using that experience to plead with those who hold onto antisemitic and other discriminatory beliefs not to fall into the same path as those who perpetuated the crimes of the Holocaust and other atrocities, warning them, "you will not find success at the end of that road."
In a 12-minute video posted on his YouTube page on Monday, the former professional bodybuilder, actor and California governor said he wanted to address the topic amid the recent rises in global hate and antisemitism.
He said he doesn't want to "preach to the choir" of those who are actively against discrimination. Instead, he wants to speak to those who have "stumbled... into the wrong path."
"I don't know the road that has brought you here, but I've seen enough people throw away their futures for hateful beliefs," he said in the video. "So I want to speak with you before you find your regrets at the end of that path."
Schwarzenegger pointed to his father, Gustav Schwarzenegger, who, he has said in the past was a Nazi soldier and part of the siege of Leningrad in World War II that famously lasted nearly 900 days. His father, he said, was one of the "broken men" after the war who were "riddled with guilt." .." from the article:
