The 38th Governor of California has a few things to say about the morons that stormed the Capitol and the asshole who encouraged it.
Arnie’s video message is special not only because he’s a prominent Republican openly condemning the actions of the President and his horde, but also because it ends with an analogy featuring the sword from Schwarznegger’s breakout movie, Conan The Barbarian.
‘You see this sword? This is Conan’s sword. Now here’s the thing about swords, the more you temper a sword, the stronger it becomes… I’m not telling you all this because I want you to become an expert sword maker, but our democracy is like the steel of the sword. The more it is tempered, the stronger it becomes.’
My only criticism would be the hokey dramatic soundtrack (Peer Gynt?), otherwise big thumbs up. Watch below.
