Company pulls sponsorship from Schwarzenegger events | Beaufort County Now | Schwarzenegger “screw your freedom” comment: ‘Un-American’

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) has the following:

"REDCON1, a nutritional supplement company in Boca Raton decided to cut ties with Schwarzenegger’s “Arnold Classic,” a fitness competition to be held in Columbus, OH., on Sept. 25.

Schwarzenegger said:

“There is a virus here—it kills people, and the only way we prevent it [apparently not necessarily] is get vaccinated, get masks, do social distancing, wash your hands all the time, and not to just think about ‘Well by freedom is being kind of disturbed here.’ No, screw your freedom.” [emphasis added]

“Screw your freedom?” How about this? Screw you, Arnold.

The “Terminator” continued:

“Yeah, you have the freedom to wear no mask—but you know something? You’re a schmuck for not wearing a mask. You are supposed to protect your fellow Americans around you.”

Schwarzenegger then made the absurd comparison to his experience as a bodybuilder and equated that to COVID guidance, even though the so-called “guidance” has flip-flopped more than a fish out of water.

“There’s no one that knows more about a bicep than I do because I studied this issue for 50 years and the same is also with the virus. The people out there, the experts, they study this year after year after year.”

Yeah, and they still constantly get it wrong.

Schwarzenegger then demanded that the American people listen to so-called “experts” like St. Anthony of Fauci, who has changed guidance on issues such as masks no less than probably half-a-dozen times, as well as from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) which has about the same track record.

In an absolutely absurd comparison, Schwarzenegger then made the following ridiculous analogy:

“We put the traffic light at the intersection, so someone doesn’t kill someone else by accident,” he said. “You cannot say, ‘No one is going [to] tell me that I’m going to stop here at this traffic light here, I’m going to go right through it.’ Yeah, then you kill someone else and then it is our doing.

“You cannot go 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.”

Such a drama queen.

You see, the problem with Schwarzenegger and the COVID porn mafia is they believe that this virus can be completely eradicated. That is extremely unlikely to happen, as few if any respiratory viruses have ever been completely eradicated.

The chances that this one, which has shown a propensity to continually mutate, will do so is a fool’s errand.

In a Facebook post, REDCON1 was having none of it. Then noted that over the years, they have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars being one of the top sponsors of the event. However Schwarzenegger’s rhetoric telling vaccine opponents to “screw your freedoms” was too much.

“It’s with a heavy heart and some genuine sadness, that REDCON1 has decided to discontinue any and all support for the Arnold Classic and the other Arnold related events around the world.

“Anyone who says ‘screw your freedoms’ is un-American, and REDCON11 is a patriotic pro-freedom brand. We support freedom of choice.

“We DO NOT want Arnold censored or cancelled. We just can’t support his opinion with our dollars. Thank you for understanding.”

This is an outstanding, patriotic, liberty-loving company. We ask you to support their exercising their right to address Schwarzenegger with their wallets. Arnold is entitled to express his ignorant opinion and REDCON1 is entitled to answer that ignorance with their feet."

Good to see a company stand up to those that don't believe in freedom by exercising their freedom not to support them.
