Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Hypocritical Virtue Signalling

Arnold Schwarzenegger, arch virtue signaller and liberals’ favourite pet Republican, has joined the chorus of those attacking the Charlottesville protest as part of the general attempt to undermine President Donald Trump.

Scwharzenegger chose idiotic millennial liberal brainwashing site ATTN to disseminate his diatribe, stating that;

“There are not two sides to bigotry. There are not two sides to hatred. And if you choose to march with a flag that symbolises the slaughter of millions of people, there are not two sides”

Ironically though, the moral vacuity and hypocrisy in the way both the left and establishment “conservatives” hysterically disavow the far right while ignoring and actively chiding anyone who mentions the crimes of the far left, is easily revealed through a quick look through Arnold’s past.

Arnold’s hero is the late Soviet weightlifter, Leonid Zhabotinsky. A New York Times article recounts Schwarzenegger’s praise for him;

“He stole the show,” recalled Mr. Schwarzenegger, the weight lifter, bodybuilder, actor and former California governor, who as a teenager in Austria kept a photograph of Zhabotinsky taped over his bed. “He was extraordinary, another form of inspiration: If he can make it, I can make it.”

And here is Mr Zhabotinsky at the opening ceremony of the Olympics, proudly marching at the front of the Soviet Delegation, Hammer and Sickle flag raised proudly above him.

Of course the leftists who run our education system prefer not to dwell on Soviet crimes, so for those who need a refresher course let’s just quote from an uncontroversial source like wikipedia. Just referring to the period in which Stalin headed the Soviet Union;

Several scholars, among them Stalin biographer Simon Sebag Montefiore, former Politburo member Alexander Nikolaevich Yakovlev and the director of Yale‘s “Annals of Communism” series Jonathan Brent, put the death toll at about 20 million

And what was the flag of the Soviet Union throughout every horrifying period of mass murder, from the Holodomor to the Great Purge, in which millions of innocent people perished? Ah yes, the same Hammer and Sickle borne aloft by the marching Leonid Zhabotinsky.

As you said Arnold, “if you choose to march with a flag that symbolises the slaughter of millions of people, there are not two sides”. When is the public statement against Communism going to be? When will we see Schwarzenegger “disavow” Zhabotinsky? We all know the answer of course; never.

And here comes the chorus of “but that’s different!” from the usual suspects, well it always is when it comes to the crimes of the far left, isn’t it? Slaughtering millions irrevocably stains “far right” ideology as unutterably evil forever, while slaughtering millions is just an awkward false start for the far left, best forgotten about and totally not something to draw any moral lessons from at all. We wouldn’t want to tarnish the cool “new” ideology that’s being sold to today’s gullbible college students now would we? And conservative traitors like Arnold are more than happy to ignore the blood soaked history of the far left while squealing hysterically about five guys with Nazi flags in Virginia.
