Arnold praised Hitler in book proposal

From the Drudge Report, front page (Yes, the Drudge Report!)

An unearthed book proposal by Pumping Iron’s director George Butler is set throw the California recall race in to new levels of complete chaos.

The book proposal quotes Arnold Schwarzenegger naming monster Adolf Hitler as a hero!

ABC News, which broadcast the remarks on Thursday, said they were contained in an unpublished book proposal with quotes from what it calls a “verbatim transcript” of the interview.

Asked about his heroes, the young Schwarzenegger, in 1975, was quoted as saying; “I admired Hitler, for instance, because he came from being a little man with almost no formal education, up to power.

“I admire him for being such a good public speaker and for what he did with it.”

The actor was quoted as saying he wished he could experience being ..”like Hitler in the Nuremberg stadium and have all those people scream at you and just being total agreement whatever you say.”

Asked by ABC News to comment on the old remarks, Schwarzenegger said: “I cannot remember any of these. All I can tell you is that I despise everything Hitler stood for. I despise everything the Nazis stood for … everything the Third Reich stood for.”

The author of the book proposal told ABCNEWS that the quotes needed to be seen in context of Schwarzenegger’s admiration of powerful men.

The book proposal contains other stunning passages, which ABCNEWS is preparing to reveal.

Mercy, why just yesterday Arnold was rashly giving speeches saying what his first 100 days in office would be like. What a difference a day makes. Thank you Code Pink, thank you Oppo research. Keep it up. Let’s reduce him to smoking rubble.
