Arnold Schwarzenegger struggles with his past. The actor has been splashed on more than one occasion by the Nazi past of his family, specifically with his father, Gustav Schwarzenegger, who was a militant of the Nazi party and follower of Adolf Hitler during World War II, and so has led him on many occasions to come to the fore and explain what his thinking is about it.
It has been, this time in an interview on CNN, where he explained that his father was present at the invasions of Poland and France. “My father and many millions of other men were sucked into a system of hatred through lies and deceit. We’ve already seen where that leads,” he said.
At the same time, he added being “broken” inside. “I think about the kind of atrocities that happened, how many millions of people had to die and then end up losing…” And he delved into the matter. “I’ve seen firsthand the kind of atrocities that happened. How many millions of people had to die and then ended up being losers.”
And he insisted that this just “doesn’t work… I mean, we’re going to get along. Love is more powerful than hate. No matter how far you’ve come, I want everyone to know that there is still the possibility of a life of strength.”
Regarding the upcoming 2024 US elections, the actor positioned himself against Donald Trump, after announcing himself as one of the candidates for the White House in 2024. “He doesn’t stand a chance. The first thing that came to mind when I saw it was that it was dangerous and that we were very, very close to losing our democracy. That it could be the beginning of something like Crystal Night, let’s all be aware of that.”
