Terminator famous actor Arnold Schwarzenegger shared his thoughts on the growing anti-Semitism and hate crimes.
Schwarzenegger, 75, took to social media on Monday to post a 12-minute video addressing the rise in hate crimes in the US, specifically those who “hate others because of their religion, skin color or their religion.” sex.”
In his video appeal, the actor called those who embrace hate “losers” but urged those people to take a different path, saying, “I care about you.”
“If you’re wondering if the path of hate might make sense to you for one reason or another, or if you’ve even wrapped yourself in the banner of hate, I want you to know where that path ends,” he said.
In the video, the former California governor said, “I’ve seen too many people throw away their futures because of the beliefs they hate, so I want to talk to you before you end up regretting it at the end of the road.”
The actor reflected on his experiences growing up in post-World War II Austria, while also using the examples of the Civil War and apartheid, saying, “There has never been a successful movement based on hate…Hate has always been the easy way out throughout history. .”
He continued, “I mean, it’s easier to find someone to blame for the problem than to try to improve ourselves, isn’t it? But let me be clear: at the end of this road, you will not succeed.”
The Predator The star described her father and other German soldiers she saw growing up, saying they turned to alcohol to numb their pain: “They were all broken.”
“They fell into a terrible, defeatist ideology,” Schwarzenegger said.
“They were lied to and led down a path that ended in misery. They’ve bought into the idea that the only way to make their lives better is to make other people’s lives worse. This is the path of the weak.”
He continued: “No matter what we disagree on, my friends can say, ‘Arnold, don’t talk to those people, it’s not worth it,’ and I don’t care what they say.” I think you deserve it. I know nobody is perfect. I understand how people can fall into the trap of hatred and hatred.”
“It’s easier to hate than it is to learn, when someone calls you out and it’s easier to go find an echo chamber that says you’re right and they’re wrong,” he said.
He went on to say, “No matter how far you’ve come, you still have the power to choose a life of strength… You have to fight against yourself… The other way is easy. You don’t need to change. Anything, anything in your life that you’re not happy with can be someone else’s fault.”
