Ah-nold Finally Admits He Expressed Admiration For Hitler

Categories: Celebs

In his memoir Total Recall, Arnold Schwarzenegger at last cops to having once said he admired Hitler.

"I philosophized that only a few men are born to lead," Arnold writes, "while the rest of humanity is born to follow, and went from that into discussing history's great conquerors and dictators.

"I admired Hitler's speaking ability, though not what he did with it.

"Coming up with outrageous things to say was easy because I was always thinking of them to keep myself entertained."

Chah-ming! Outrageous indeed! Got any material about the Klan?

By the way, the Terminator's original quote--said to Pumping Iron director George Butler, who noted it for a book proposal--was:

"I admired Hitler, for instance, because he came from being a little man with almost no formal education, up to power."

That's like saying you admire an aging action-star-turned-politico who rises to the occasion and still manages to impregnate his maid!

And then I philosophized that the housekeeper should suck my dick undt haf mine babies. AH sshole.


@mikeymusto - That's old news. He admitted that when he was running for governor.


I think you;re spinning this as a bit to hard. A dispassionate look at history would require ackowledgement that Hitler, Stalin, all of them had to be remarkable to come up through stringent classes in their society's and become single-handed dictators. And the West can take a big share in the blame for creating the platform for Hitler, with teh 'punishment' of Germany through economic poverty after the First World War. Austerity that is/was unecessary, and currently has its' grip on the throat of Europe and America right this very now. Further study: John Maynard Keynes.


I wonder why he finally copped to it. To sell books?
