Arnold Schwarzenegger today released this extraordinarily heartfelt and personal video to his fellow Americans:

Far from preaching to the choir, the historic videos message carries a compelling message to Republicans, Independents and Trump supporters.

It  can be found and shared here on Twitter and here on Facebook.

“I grew up in Austria. I’m very aware of Kristallnacht, or the Night of Broken Glass. It was a night of rampage against the Jews in 1938 by the Nazi equivalent of the Proud Boys,” he explained, in the nearly eight-minute-long video.

Wednesday’s attack on the U.S. Capitol “was the Day of Broken Glass right here in the United States by the Nazi equivalent of the Proud Boys,” the former Republican Governor of California said, referring to Hitler’s notorious Kristallnacht in 1938.  “The broken glass was in the windows of the United States Capitol. But the mob did not just shatter the windows of the Capitol. They shattered the ideas we took for granted. They did not just break down the doors of the building that housed American democracy; they trampled the very principles in which our nation was founded.”

“President Trump sought to overturn the results … of a fair election,” Schwarzenegger observed. “He sought a coup by misleading people with lies. I know where such lies lead. President Trump is a failed leader. He will go down in history as the worst president ever…A number of members of my own party, because of their own spinelessness … They’re complicit with those who carried the flag of self righteous insurrection into the Capitol.”

“We need to heal,” Schwarzenegger concluded. “Not just as Republicans or as Democrats, but as Americans. Now to begin this process, no matter what your political affiliation is, I ask you to join me in saying to President-elect Biden, ‘President-elect Biden, we wish you great success as our president. If you succeed, our nation succeeds. We support you with all our hearts as you seek to bring us together.’”
