Actor and former governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, absolutely went full Terminator on the Democratic Party, accusing the radical leftists within the political faction of wanting to “f*** up every city in America” during a recent appearance he made on fellow Hollywood alumni Rob Lowe’s podcast, “Literally! With Rob Lowe.” I mean, Schwarzenegger is a Republican, though I would most definitely hesitate to refer to him as a “conservative” due to some very watery policy positions, at least his eyes are open enough to see the destruction wrought on major cities across the country by the policies of the progressive movement. That’s a first step in reforming one’s RINOism.
“The action film legend — a Republican who previously served as California’s 38th governor from 2003-2011 — said that from what he could see, the Democratic Party appeared to be actively working to “ruin” every city over which they had been able to gain control,” the Daily Wire reported. “The conversation between the two longtime friends — as reported by Mediaite — eventually turned to the two major political parties and what each stood for in terms of policies and priorities.”
Lowe kicked things off with an example by mentioning former California Republican Congressman David Dreier.
“Okay, let me ask you this, and I ask people this all the time,” the actor said. “David Dreier, good friend of ours and a good man. Surfer for many, many, many years. He used to have the greatest, ‘what makes me a Republican,’ and he had I think four or five things. I think it was, in no particular order, strong military, low taxes, less government, more personal freedoms. There might have been one more, but it makes sense to know –”
“Strong law enforcement,” Schwarzenegger interjected.
“Strong law enforcement,” Lowe repeated before continuing. “And then I’d like to know, I always ask Democrats what it means to be a Democrat in that way. And I, I think whatever anybody would say –”
“Ruin your cities,” the 80s action icon said.
“What would they say?” Lowe went on to ask Schwarzenegger.
“Ruin your cities,” Schwarzenegger repeated.
“That’s what the Democrats would say. We are about ruining the cities. We want to f*** up every city in America. That seems to be the theme right now,” the star of the insanely popular “Terminator” film series said. Lowe then asked his friend why he thought Democrats would want to do such a thing, but he admitted he didn’t have an answer for that.
“I have no idea,” he responded.
Well, I have a potential answer and it’s not good.
The radical left in this country believes that humanity can achieve a state of perfection and thus establish an actual utopian society. All that’s needed is a government run by smart people — the elites — who have the power and authority to implement laws that will remove the blemishes from mankind and take them to the next level of their social evolution. If we just have the right people, give them the right amount of power, and allow them to create the right legislation and enforce it, we can build heaven on earth.
The problem, of course, is humanity is inherently flawed and fallen in its nature. Due to this fact, which God in the Bible explains thoroughly, anytime a person is given absolute power, they are corrupted absolutely, through and through. In order to stay in power and to remain wealthy, they oppress the very people they were supposed to save.
Socialism in a nutshell.
The left honestly thinks their policies will create a utopia and they attempt to do so in cities they run, but it leads to utter ruin, oppression, and despair.
