If you don't get the COVID vaccine you're a foolish-Arnold Schwarzenegger


Iconic actor and the 38th Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger is standing by his assertion that if you do not get the coronavirus vaccination you're a schmuck (foolish).

Speaking to those who claim that coronavirus measures and regulations such as masking and vaccination are disturbing their freedom, Schwarzenegger said,"you have the freedom to wear no mask. But if you exercise that freedom you're a schmuck (foolish) because you're supposed to protect your fellow Americans."

Schwarzenegger went on to reference the constitution and the declaration of independence, as well as citing multiple examples from American history, to show that personal sacrifice and mutual responsibility are both important American traditions.

"Many people told me that the constitution gives them rights but not responsibilities. They feel no duty to protect their fellow citizens," said Schwarzenegger, who added that Americans need a civics lesson.

"I am not an academic but I can tell you that selfishness and dereliction of duty did not make this country great...Its right there in our founding document (The Constitution). We need to think beyond our selfish interests.

"Our country began with a willingness to make personal sacrifices for the collective good. It’s right there in the closing line of The Declaration of Independence.We mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor,"added.
In the video, the actor, former California governor and bodybuilder told viewers that we are still in a mess more than a year after the pandemic struck.

While repeatedly saying that people need to come together to fight the pandemic, he also pointed to those who have not been vaccinated and do not abide by federal guidelines and local mandates put in place to curb the spread of the virus.

"There is a virus here. It kills people. And the only way we prevent it is to get vaccinated, to wear masks, to do social distancing, washing your hands all the time, and not just to think about.

"Well, my freedom is being disturbed here,'" he said.No. Screw your freedom. With freedom comes obligations and responsibilities. When you infect other people, that is when it gets serious. It's no different than a traffic light. We put the traffic light in the intersection so that someone doesn't kill someone else,"He said.
