    Mickey Kaus pointed out this German article that describes how a young Arnold Schwarzenegger harassed Neo-nazis in Austria. What follows is an amateurish attempt to translate part of that article into English. There are a couple of places where I either had no idea how to translate a term or was unsure of the meaning, so I left the original German in brackets. Any corrections or assistance in translating this correctly would be most welcome: Original article: linkMy partial translation: link

    According to a Jewish magazine, a young Arnold Schwarzenegger helped to disrupt a march of Neo-Nazis in his Austrian homeland.As the magazine "NU" reported in its September issue, the 17-year-old Schwarzenegger helped anti-fascists heckle a demonstration of Neonazis.The budding bodybuilder, along with other athletes, protested against the right-wingers in the city of Graz, 80-year-old Alfred Gerstl told the magazine. Gerstl, previously an active supporter of conservatives in Austria, feels he knows Schwarzenegger based on characteristic statements from that time, when Schwarzenegger was a friend of Gerstl’s son Karl.
