And calling and Arnold a Nazi because he is Austrian and his Grandfather was a nazi is stupid. I might as well call you a genocidal maniac because you
are disstantly related to the Hutus that kill Tutsis.
Another wet blanket statement from the left
It just doesn't stop with you people. He's a goose-stepping, knuckle-dragging Nazi.
Arnold's Nazi Problem
Why won't he repudiate Kurt Waldheim?
By Timothy Noah
A slight Waldheim problem
Here's a question Jay Leno forgot to ask Arnold Schwarzenegger when he announced his candidacy for governor of California on last night's Tonight
Show: "Will you renounce your support for Kurt Waldheim?"
A little refresher course may be in order. Kurt Waldheim, a widely esteemed former secretary general of the United Nations, was running for president
of Austria in March 1986 when it came to light that he had participated in Nazi atrocities during World War II. Waldheim had always maintained that he
had served in the Wehrmacht only briefly and that after being wounded early in the war, he had returned to Vienna to attend law school.
In fact, Waldheim had resumed military service after recuperating from his injury and had been an intelligence officer in Germany's Army Group E when
it committed mass murder in the Kozara region of western Bosnia. (Waldheim's name appears on the Wehrmacht's "honor list" of those responsible for
the atrocity.) In 1944, Waldheim had reviewed and approved a packet of anti-Semitic propaganda leaflets to be dropped behind Russian lines, one of
which ended, "enough of the Jewish war, kill the Jews, come over."
After the war, Waldheim was wanted for war crimes by the War Crimes Commission of the United Nations, the very organization he would later head. None
of these revelations prevented Waldheim from winning the Austrian election, but after he became president, the U.S. Justice Department put Waldheim on
its watch list denying entry to "any foreign national who assisted or otherwise participated in activities amounting to persecution during World War
II." The international community largely shunned Waldheim, and he didn't run for re-election. (This information comes from the1992 book Betrayal:
The Untold Story of the Kurt Waldheim Investigation and Cover-Up, by Eli M. Rosenbaum and William Hoffer.)
