Schwarzenegger Speech Plans Cause Friction

By Michael R. Blood - Tuesday, June 7th, 2005 - The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES -- Long before making "The Terminator," Arnold Schwarzenegger was a young Austrian bodybuilder hitting the books at Santa Monica College in the early 1970s.

But the governor's planned return next week to deliver a commencement address at the two-year community college near the beach is turning into something less than a homecoming.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is a main target of left wing demonstrators because of his often professed and sincere hatred for socialism. As he puts it, "I grew up with socialism, and I know how bad it is". However there is a serious worldwide socialist movement. With the election of Howard Dean it has taken control of the democratic party. It is composed of groups that believe in demonstrating against anyone they oppose for the purpose of intimidation.

Demonstrations against Arnold started with his campaign for Governor. The left wing groups made sure that there was never a day they did not have a mob outside his campaign headquarters. They hassled campaign workers with loud chants and unscroupulous behavior (spitting on workers regularly).

The threatened attempts to keep Arnold from giving a speech at his former school by disrupting the procedure is typical democrat behavior now that they are controlled by socialists. It is generally true on all college campuses these days that only the left is permitted freedom of speech. All others are berated and intimidated by left wing extremists to stop their views from being heard.

They had little success intimidating the Terminator during his campaign, and are unlikely to intimidate him this time either.
