'Screw Your Freedom' Says Schwarzenegger to Vaccine Hesitant Americans


Celebrity and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger had the following advice for those who are vaccine-hesitant or skeptical of masking and social distancing directives. 

“Screw your freedom,” he said during a YouTube appearance with CNN’s Brianna Golodryga and retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman. 

“People should know 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, ‘My freedom is being kind of disturbed here.’ No, screw your freedom. Because with freedom comes obligations and responsibilities. You cannot just say I have the right to do X, Y and Z. When you affect other people, that is when it gets serious,” Schwarzenegger, 74, said.

He compared people who push back against COVID-19 guidance to a driver who blows through a red stoplight. 

“You cannot say, ‘No one is going to tell me that I’m going to stop here, that I have to stop at this traffic light here. I’m going to go right through it.’ Then you kill someone else,” he said.

He continued: “We all have to work together on this. The only way we can lick this virus is [to] come together rather than fighting and always just saying, ‘According to my principles, this is a free country and I’m going to 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. Because you’re supposed to protect your fellow members around you. It’s just that simple. This is the way I feel about it.” 

“I don’t want to villainize anyone here, but I just wanted to tell everyone, let’s work together and let’s stop fighting because there is a virus, and it’s better to get vaccinated [and] to wear a mask.”

Schwarzenegger compared his own expertise with bodybuilding — “I’ve studied this issue for 50 years” — with the expertise of Dr. Anthony Fauci, who’s been studying this “probably for his entire life,” the Terminator franchise star speculated.  

“Why would you not believe someone like that?”

    Screw your freedoms as schwartzniga goes and knocks up another illegal alien house maid. This clown truly did burn his brain out with to many roids.

    Really tired of this new trend to even care about what this creep has to say. He screwed his wife, screwed his kids… and for years. Why is what he says or what he thinks important? He could not win an election for dog catcher.

  5. Xocet says:

    This comment is NOT directed at the unvaccinated. He knows who he is in that chatroom with, and he is letting them know he would support a vaccine mandate/passport. Its a signal that he and other elites are behind a vaccine passport and want it to begin

    “Roided out former Body builder Austrian Immigrant claims to have studied the Cofefe for 50 years. Which allows him to declare to the country he migrated to with “Screw your Freedom”.

    Austrian immigrant says ,”screw your freedom ” .

  8. SuperTired says:

    Just because you’re vaccinated doesn’t mean you’re safe from contracting the virus. There are cases of vaccinated people dying from covid despite the shots, it doesn’t remove the possibility. They’re lying to us.
