Schwarzenegger’s Hypocrisy is Baaack

Arnold Schwarzenegger washed out of Hollywood. When he got into the California gubernatorial recall election, he was outrunning a string of bombs like Collateral Damage, 6th Day and Batman and Robin.

After he failed in politics, leaving behind a badly mismanaged state and a sex scandal, he went back to Hollywood. And he failed even harder. The Last Stand had a $45 million budget. It made $12 million in the states. Sabotage had a $35 million budget and made only $17 million worldwide.

Killing Gunther went straight to video.

So Arnold went right back into politics. Unlike the private sector, failure in politics doesn’t matter. He went into politics calling Democrat opponents “girlie men” and he went out as the “trophy wife” of the Democrats and their special interests. The vain celebrity selfishly exploited a political revolution that might have saved California, but instead handed it over to the bankruptcy of permanent Dem rule.

After washing out of Hollywood again, Arnie is doing a brisk tour of the Dem circuit.

His Terminate Gerrymandering Crowdpac’s cause is supported by Eric Holder’s National Democratic Redistricting Committee. Terminate’s site takes you to its brief posted on Common Cause’s site. Common Cause has received over a million from George Soros and its board is chaired by Robert Reich, the radical lefty activist and former Clintonite. Common Cause claims to have coordinated the Schwarzenegger brief. Reed Smith, the firm that drafted Arnie’s brief, is a Democrat firm that was accused of voter suppression for its role in removing Nader from the ballot in Pennsylvania.

The brief begins by claiming that Schwarzenegger, Kasich, and other “former governors—from both major political parties—who have witnessed firsthand how partisan gerrymandering in their States has robbed citizens of full participation in the democratic process.” The irony is overwhelming.

Schwarzenegger boasts of presiding over “election reforms” that left California a one-party state. Kamala Harris, the Great Obama Hope of 2020, won what amounted to a Democrat primary against a fellow Dem. Reed Smith is most famous for helping Dem staffers working on the taxpayer dollar hound a third party candidate off the ballot by challenging a voter who signed his name as Bill instead of William.

“I’m a Republican, and I’m a true Republican, and I will always be a Republican,” Arnie declared.

And if you don’t believe that, last year Arnold and the Schwarzenegger Institute and Common Cause hosted David Daley, the former editor of the radical lefty site Salon, to discuss his book, Ratf**ked, which accuses Republicans of a “Secret Plan to Steal America’s Democracy”.

The brand of democracy that Arnie is peddling “terminates” democracy and Republicans. Its great dream is to turn the rest of the country into an undemocratic one-party state. Just like California.

But now the great Hummer collector has found a new cause: suing oil companies over global warming.

“It’s absolutely irresponsible to know that your product is killing people and not have a warning label on it, like tobacco,” he complained. “Every gas station on it, every car should have a warning label on it.”

If only someone had told Arnie that his four Hummers, his Bugatti Veyron, his Porsche 911 Turbo, Ferrari 360 Spider, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and his M47 Patton Tank were bad for the environment. And then there was the time that he tried to promote his bomb, The Last Stand, by crushing a car with his tank. Why didn’t the oil companies tell him that was bad for the environment? There shoulda been a label.

It was actually Schwarzenegger’s obsession with getting a Humvee for his collection that made the Hummer happen. But just because he can drive one, doesn’t mean you should.

And he’ll be hosting an environmental conference in Vienna. How will he get there?

There is his Gulfstream III jet. He bought the $35 million jet to commute from his Brentwood mansion in Los Angeles to the capital in Sacramento. Instead of moving to Sacramento, he chose to fly back and forth.  The trip allegedly did as much damage to the environment in an hour as a car does in one year.
