ANALYSIS – The former bodybuilder, movie action star and Republican Governor of California isn’t always right, but recently he has been on a ‘right-wing’ tear.
Despite prior criticisms of California Republicans, and his squishy views on social issues, he is now taking a strong stand on two major issues: the border crisis and crime in unlivable cities.
As reported by Mediatie, In a recent installment of SiriusXM’s “Literally! With Rob Lowe” the actor asked the 76-year-old “Terminator” star what it means to be a Democrat.
“Ruin your cities,” he responded. “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.”
“Why is that?” Lowe asked. “I have no idea,” Schwarzenegger replied.
Well, I do. Democrats care more about their neo-Marxist ideology than its impact in the real world. The more damage they cause, the more leftist policies they push to fix their self-created problems, which only cause more damage.
During the exchange, which included former long-time Republican congressman David Drier (my old representative growing up in Southern California), Schwarzenegger also added that Republicans are for “strong law enforcement.”
And that is key. The crime wave inspired by the leftist Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Defund the Police movements since 2020 has devastated many cities.
This has only been compounded by the Democrats’ soft-on-drugs approach and their enabling of living on the streets.
But one of the worst contributors to making our cities increasingly ‘f—up’ is the Joe Biden border crisis and massive illegal migrant wave which is turning many American cities into third world refugee camps.
And the Terminator has strong views on that too.
Responding to a question by the often-clueless Ana Navarro on the View about Joe Biden reversing himself to build part of Donald Trump’s infamous border wall, Arnold said: “first of all, I believe very strongly in having a border that no one can get through. That’s number one for me.”
He cited concerns over terrorism and drug cartels as his reason for supporting strong border security.
“Number two,” Schwarzenegger added, “what is important is that we have visas available for people that want to work in the United States, so they don’t have to work illegally. It is bogus, we need the workers here.”
He noted that the current immigration system is a “stupid system” and “set up to commit a crime,” and urged a bipartisan effort to fix the entire immigration system in a “comprehensive way.”
