He shared the story of his father, who was a member of the Nazi Party during World War II.
Schwarzenegger said: “I never shared this incident publicly because it was a painful memory, but my father would go home drunk once or twice a week and he would yell and beat us and scared. scar my mother.”
A person like his father “suffered physical pain because of body shrapnel, but also suffered emotional pain because of what he saw, heard, or did.”
He said: “From Europe, I have witnessed how things got out of control.”
‘Our democracy is firm’
Then, the former Republican governor and actor turned their attention to the president.
He said: “President Trump is trying to overturn the results of the election and overthrow a fair election. He seeks a coup by misleading people who lie.” “My father and our neighbors were also misled by lies. I know what these lies will cause. ”
“President Trump is a failed leader. He will become the worst president ever and go down in history. Fortunately, he will soon be as irrelevant as an old tweet.”
Schwarzenegger also summoned elected officials who supported the president. He did not give any names. He said that many members of the party appeared to be “boneless” and were “dependent on their lives” with the rioters.
He said: “But it’s no use. Our democratic system is unwavering.” He pointed out that a few hours after the violent attack on the Capitol, it proved Biden’s election victory. “The great demonstration of democracy.”
In the video, Schwarzenegger picked up a sword. He said that the sword belonged to Conan the Barbarian, the role he played in the 1982 movie of the same name.
He said: “Our democracy is like the hardness of this sword.” “The more tempered, the stronger.”
For the country to start healing, Schwarzenegger called on everyone to join him in Biden’s mail: “Elected President Biden, we wish you success, our president. If you succeed, our country succeeds, we support you and All our hearts. When you seek to unite us.”
He added: “For those who think that the U.S. Constitution can be overturned, know this.” “You will never win.”
