‘Screw your freedom’: Arnold Schwarzenegger unleashes viral mask, vaccine rant

R&I – FS

Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger had some tough words for those who dislike COVID-19 mask and vaccine mandates.

During an hour-long recorded conversation with CNN host Bianna Golodryga and retired Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a key witness in the first Donald Trump impeachment, Schwarzenegger discussed the pandemic and ripped into those resisting mandates and other pandemic measures.

“There is a virus here, it kills people,” he said. “The only way we prevent it is get vaccinated, get masks, do social distancing, washing your hands all the time, and not just to think about, ‘Well my freedom is being kind of disturbed here.’ No, screw your freedom. Because with freedom comes obligations and responsibilities, you cannot just say, ‘I have the right to do X, Y and Z,’ when you affect other people, that is when it gets serious. It’s no different from a traffic light, you put a traffic light at an intersection so someone doesn’t kill someone else.”
