Well, they finally did it. You know, we’re grateful in a way that John Wayne is not alive to live through this abhorrent time in American culture. God knows what the left would have done to The Duke in this age of runaway political correctness. We can only count our stars that they haven’t gotten their dirty fingers into Clint Eastwood yet. It’s bad enough that they’ve apparently done a number on Arnold Schwarzenegger, who, while he may never have been the greatest Republican in the land, was at least man enough to roll his eyes at this silly nonsense.
Well, not anymore, apparently.
In an interview with Men’s Health magazine this month, the former California governor was asked if he regretted mocking his political opponents as “girlie men” back when he was in office.
“At the time it felt like the right thing to do,” said Schwarzenegger. “It was in my gut. I improvised it. They were afraid of everything. Politicians, in general, want to do little things so there’s no risk involved.”
While that seems like the perfect reason to call your fellow politicians out as “girlie men,” the Terminator said that it was “shortsighted” for him to use the phrase.
“In the long term, it’s better not to say that, because you want to work with them,” he said.
At least we can take comfort in his explanation, which didn’t include any heartfelt, long-winded soliloquys to the transgender community or any such asinine crap.
On the other hand, Arnold took some mild heat for using the phrase back in the day, so we know that HE knows why Men’s Health asked the question. They want to know if the Arnold of 2018 has gotten himself right with Liberal Jesus. They want to know if he’s ready to prostrate himself on the altar of political correctness and augment his Trump-bashing with some good old fashioned butt-kissing. That’s why he should have simply said, “I do not apologize, sorry. They were girlie-men, and so are you.”
Sometimes we think the real reason Trump won the presidency is that he’s the last damn MAN standing.
