Arnold Schwarzenegger, Who Smears Trump Supporters As Nazis, Once Praised Hitler

Fact checked
Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has been attempting to smear Trump supporters as Nazis, has been forced to admit that he once praised Hitler.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has been attempting to smear President Trump and the 63 million people who voted for him as Nazis, has been forced to admit that he once praised Adolf Hitler – and his own father was a notorious Nazi stormtrooper. 

Rumors circulated for years regarding what Schwarzenegger said on camera during the filming of Pumping Iron, the documentary that shot the young Austrian immigrant to stardom in Los Angeles in the late 70s.

Schwarzenegger always denied that he openly enthused about Adolf Hitler’s talents, but he was forced to admit the truth after being confronted with proof.

“I philosophized that only a few men are born to lead, while the rest of humanity is born to follow, and went from that into discussing history’s great conquerors and dictators,” Schwarznegger writes about a discussion with Pumping Iron director George Butler. “I admired Hitler’s speaking ability, though not what he did with it.

Making matters even worse for Arnold, it has also been revealed that his father was a notorious Nazi stormtrooper.

A brief entry in one of millions of documents stored at the Austrian State Archives has revealed that Arnold Schwarzenegger’s father was a volunteer member of the Sturmabteilung, or SA – the notorious Nazi storm troopers also known as brown shirts.

New York Daily News reports:

“During his 2003 campaign for California governor, Schwarzenegger — whose father was a member of the Nazi party during World War II — denied speaking out in favor of Hitler, a fellow Austrian. But a book proposal by Butler quoted from a “verbatim transcript.” Butler asked Schwarzenegger who his heroes were, and the bodybuilder replied, “I admired Hitler, for instance, because he came from being a little man with almost no formal education, up to power.”

Adolf Hitler is far from the only person who came from humble beginnings and rose to power. Schwarzenegger’s excuses for his praise of Adolf Hitler make little sense and expose him for what he is – a political opportunist, riding the mainstream media narrative and attempting to score cheap points against his opponents while insulting the dignity of 63 million Americans.
