I love Arnold Schwarzenegger ? (tags)
The media has skillfully focused on his father and away from all the real Nazi connections and said "Arnold can't help what his daddy did." But what they don't tell you about is that Arnold is a self proclaimed follower of Kurt Waldheim. Kurt Waldheim was a favorite of the United Nations and served as Secretary General from 1972 to1982. When Waldheim ran for the Presidency of Austria in 1986, Arnold was Waldheim’s biggest supporter and campaigned across Austria. He was even featured on campaign posters. During Waldheim’s campaign it emerged that he had been a wanted war criminal for atrocities he had commanded as an officer in the dreaded Nazi SS. Waldheim had written and approved posters and leaflets that read among many things, "enough of the Jewish war, kill the Jews, come over.”
