protest Arnold’s documented statements

of admiration of Nazis, his Racist Comments and his ties to White

Supremacists on the Jewish Holy Day of Atonement Yom Kippur:

BACKGROUND:

* Schwarzenegger : I admired Hitler, because he came from being a little man with almost no formal education, up to power. –1977 Interview with producer of Pumping Iron

* Schwarzenegger Toast to Kurt Waldheim at his Wedding to Shriver : "My friends don't want me to mention Kurt's (Waldheim) name, because of all the recent Nazi stuff and the U.N. controversy, but I love him and Maria does too, and so thank you. Kurt."- 1986 Waldheim was a former Austrian President who had a central role in Nazi atrocities. Schwarzenegger was seen in Waldheim's company as recently as 1998.

* Schwarzenegger on Jorg Haider of Austria's extreme right-wing Freedom Party: a very charismatic leader. "Some of his ideas are good," says Schwarzenegger. Schwarzenegger was photographed in 1996 with Jorg Haider, leader. Haider has praised Hitler's "sensible policies" and also been filmed at a secret SS reunion.-2000

* Schwarzenegger defended the apartheid system and argued that “white South Africans could not turn power over to black South Africans without ruining the nation” said Rick Wayne -- a black bodybuilder from St. Lucia:, a Caribbean island -- said. Wayne also said he watched Schwarzenegger upset Jewish friend Joe Weider to the point of tears with his crass jokes, which included doing an impression of Hitler.

* Robby Robinson, a former Mr. America, Mr. World and Mr. Universe titleholder, who worked with Schwarzenegger in the 1970s claims Schwarzenegger repeatedly directed the term "nigger" at him. Said Robinson, "That he (Arnold) would use, down with the blacks to 40 or 50 people”-1977

* Schwarzenegger: Don Sipple, Arnie's new media consultant (A confirmed wife beater and who worked for Pete Wilson, both Bushes, Karl Rove and John Ashcroft), created the harsh television commercials promoting 187 the anti-immigrant initiative. The doomsday ads featured a grim narration voice warning viewers that illegal immigrants just "keep coming."-2003

* The Washington Post reported Arnold Schwarzenegger also has a 16-year-long relationship to an English only organization called US ENGLISH with "ties to right-wing nationalist movements. US ENGLISH co-founder John Stanton, is considered the modern-day godfather of the anti-immigration movement. He has founded or helped fund at least 13 anti-immigration groups, three of which are listed as "hate groups" by the Southern Poverty Law Center." Just recently resigned US ENGLISH spokesperson James Lubinskas, is a "contributing editor to American Renaissance magazine, published by a leader of the white-supremacist group Council of Conservative Citizens, which is also listed by SPLC as a hate group. Lubinskas has long ties to right-wing nationalist groups, such as American Friends of the British Nationalist Party and has shared a stage with former Louisiana Klansman David Duke. Schwarzenegger is still a member of the US ENGLISH advisory board.- 2003

* How much impact did his father's views have on him?

The L A Times reported in August that, Schwarzenegger’s father Gustav had "a deeper involvement in Hitler's regime than the Simon Wiesenthal Center had uncovered in their investigation commissioned by the actor. A document found in Austria shows Gustav Schwarzenegger was indeed a member of the Sturmabteilungen (SA), also known as the "storm troopers" or "brown shirts." Gustav Schwarzenegger joined the SA on May 1, 1939, — about six months after the storm-troopers helped launch Kristallnacht, the Night of the Broken Glass, when Jewish homes, businesses and synagogues were attacked across Germany and Austria and thousands of Jews were hauled off to concentration camps. Gustav Schwarzenegger served with German Army units that saw some of the most brutal bloodshed of World War II, including the invasions of Poland and France and the German rampage through Russia and the siege of Leningrad.
