Arnold Schwarzenegger has now spoken out about the rise of white supremacy culture in the United States. Schwarzenegger released a statement and video on Facebook laying the verbal smackdown on Nazism and what it stands for.

He also criticizes Donald Trump saying that there is no two sides to bigotry and hate speech. He feels Trump should do a better job of condemning white supremacists. You can read some of Schwarzenegger's statement on the matter below.

I have a message to the Neo-Nazis, the white nationalists, and the Neo-Confederates. Let me be as blunt as possible: Your heroes are losers. You are supporting a lost cause. Believe me, I knew the original Nazis. I was born in Austria in 1947, shortly after the second world war. Growing up, I was surrounded by broken men / men who came home from a war filled with shrapnel and guilt / men who were misled into a losing ideology. And I can tell you: these ghosts you idolize spent the rest of their lives living in shame and right now, they're resting in hell.

He then says people should not stay silent and speak out when they see others being racist. The only way to eliminate hatred is to confront the issues head on.

He also says that all human beings have equal value and we should try and eradicate racism of all kinds. Hate speech is never good so hopefully we can educate people to be nicer towards humans of all races.

Schwarzenegger is not the only Hollywood celebrity that has spoken out about this issue. Many others including Chris Evans, Seth Rogen, Brie Larson, LeBron James and more feel Trump should be doing a better job condemning Nazism.
