Arnold Schwarzenegger is Disgusted with American’s response to Veterans Day

Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger called out Americans for the lack of patriotism he witnessed on Veterans Day.

In an impassioned video, the former ‘Governator’ addressed his 21 million plus Instagram followers, after returning home from his annual tradition of visiting the Los Angeles National Cemetery on Veterans Day.  

He called out the “patriots” who couldn’t be bothered to honor the fallen soldiers buried on the grounds. “It doesn’t make any sense. I was kind of upset. You have to understand it doesn’t make any sense that in this cemetery, where there are almost 100,000 people buried – veterans – that there are only like, 20 people walking around.” 

The former Republican leader took a shot at Trump supporters for gathering at huge political rallies, but failing to honor the fallen soldiers that lost their lives defending our country.  

“Think about that. I mean, 20 people for almost 100,000 veterans that are buried there. But then 20,000 or so will go to a political rally where someone promises them to make America great,” he jabbed at Trump. “But the fact of the matter is those veterans are the ones that made America great. No one else!”

He concluded the video with a wish for American patriots to turn out on next year’s holiday. “I hope that next year when I go back to that cemetery that I will see you 20,000 that are so patriotic,” he remarked. “I hope I see you there. I think it’s a discussion that we should have: the definition of patriotism. Let’s talk about it.”

Schwarzenegger took over Trump’s spot on his reality show, “The Apprentice,” in 2016, which hemorrhaged ratings after the change.  They both blamed each other for the show’s cancellation and have been sworn Twitter enemies ever since. 

In 2019, Trump made remarks about the actor’s demise. “Arnold Schwarzenegger… You know what? He died… I was there.” The former governor clapped back with a tweet an hour later: “I’m still here. Want to compare tax returns, @realDonaldTrump?”

I salute the Veterans and their service, but there is more than one way to fight for your country- and many Trump supporters believe we are fighting for the country by fighting for lower taxes, national security, standing against socialism and the liberal bully establishment and media who haven’t got a clue what made this country great.

What did you expect from all the veteran hating people in California that hate America, love criminals, Illegals, gang bangers, and destroy their own towns for BS. The good people are afraid to go out as they may run into the lowlifes They can’t defend themselves because they get arrested. I would be getting the hell out of California as soon as possible and let them have it. Maybe it will slide off in the ocean. From what I have read about fracking out there the rock formations are loose and could slide off with small earth quakes. Need to build a wall down the Arizona / Nevada border to keep them out there and stop bringing their BS to the rest of America. We don’t want their “Woke” here. GOD Bless America!

Dear Arnold, shut the f__k up! Americans (mostly conservative ones) have celebrated Veterans Day, Memorial Day and prayed for and respect our soldiers who protected us so that we can have freedoms which are even extended to foreigners. We Americans pray to God, respect our police , military and pay homage to are fallen and wounded soldiers in many ways , which are our right to do.
As it is permissible under our 1st amendment to express your painfully ignorant rant it is others right to honor our soldiers anyway we wish without your comments. It is my 1st amendment right to say “ Go Back to Where You Came From”. You were and absolute cluster f__k as California’s Governor. The common thread being today’s comment is nothing more then just talk like your leadership was in California. Trump I’m sure is peeing his pants if he is reading your words!??

I am a retired veteran. While it is great to celebrate the fallen, we 20000 plus are still on the battlefield trying to save this country. There will be plenty of time to honor our fallen in a free America!!!!

Hey, Awwwnie, WHERE are all those Commie Leftists who protested, rioted and looted and celebrated the Media’s preconceived and too early to call election???? I’ll GUARANTEE you that the people flying their flags, remembering Veterans Day on social media, talking to their friends about it and remembering veterans and their families as it should be remembered are American patriots who are mostly TRUMP supporters. Most of Biden’s supporters are Commie Leftists who don’t give a sh*t about our country or who fights for it. Maybe you took too many hits to the head making all those action movies and that’s why you have sh*t for brains now. You don’t have to go to a cemetery to remember loved ones, veterans and the dead.

As a veteran of nearly three years of WW2 in the Pacific I cannot support Biden as my president! He is far too left as are many Californians and hollywoodites.
They will destroy the united states we veterans fought for.
Shame on them!!

Where were the Antifa and BLM marchers, were they there, Arnold?? Why just pick on the Trump people. Do I hear a bit of hypocrisy here?? And who’s to say the Trump people weren’t visiting their own graveyards?

Sadly, it was those kinds of unnecessary (and frankly who cares) kinds of tweets that put hiden Biden in the White House.

Hey Arnold, did you miss the whole summer where they tore down statues, etc? The people of this country are too busy destroying the country to worry about veterans who protected their freedom to act like jackasses.

People are nervous to go to gatherings as Antifa and BLM thugs attack innocent people. Rather attack Soros and his evil schemes. That would make vets happy <3

My 94 year old WWII Veteran father and I went to an annual Veteran’s Day Service in our town. Then we had lunch with a neighbor, who is another Veteran, and his wife, who also attended the service. We toasted the Veteran’s after we said prayers before dining. No trip to a cemetery was necessary to honor the men and women who gave their lives. And both ours, and our neighbors homes proudly display the American Flag.
