Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger doesn’t care if being forced to get the Covid-19 vaccine infringes on American’s freedoms. He put it bluntly to CNN’s Bianna Golodryga saying “screw your freedoms.”
The Washington Examiner reports:
Schwarzenegger, 74, stressed the importance of people wearing masks and said it’s best for people to get vaccinated.
“There is a virus here — it kills people,” Schwarzenegger said. “And the only way we prevent it is to get vaccinated, to wear masks, to 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 X, Y, and Z.’ When you affect other people then it gets serious.”
“Yeah, you have the freedom to wear no mask,” he said. “But you know something? You’re a schmuck for not wearing a mask.”
“I don’t want to villainize anyone here, but I just want to tell everyone, let’s work together,” he said. “Let’s stop fighting, because there is a virus, and it’s better to be vaccinated and wear a mask.”
Yesterday while I was talking with @AVindman and @biannagolodryga about Alex’s new book, I was asked about my comment about COVID misinformation that all of you are sharing. Here was my answer: pic.twitter.com/8LKhPIJ1Eu
