Listen up, Republican “girlie men”. The Republican former Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger made the following public statement directed at you foolish, selfish, anti-science folks during a televised interview on CNN on August 11, 2021:
“I think people should know there is a virus here; it kills people. And the only way we prevent it is we get vaccinated, we wear masks, we do social distancing, washing your hands all of the time, and not just to think about it, ‘Well, my freedom is being kind of disturbed here.’ No, screw your freedom. Because with freedom comes obligations and responsibilities… It’s like, no different than a traffic light. They put the traffic light in the intersection, so someone doesn’t kill someone else by accident.
You cannot say, ‘No one is going to tell me that I’m going to stop here, I’m going to go right through it.’ Yeah, then you kill someone else. It is the same thing with the virus. You cannot go and not put the mask on because when you breathe you can infect someone else, and you can infect someone that then gets sick and may die… We have to come together rather than fighting and always just saying, ‘According to my principles this is a free country and I have the freedom to wear no mask.’ Yeah, you have the freedom to wear no mask, but you know something. You’re a schmuck for not wearing a mask.”
