You might think we're making light of the situation with a headline like that, but we assure you - it is completely factual.
Indeed, Arnold Schwarzenegger's seven-minute speech covers a number of very serious topics, including his father's alcoholism and physical abuse as a child, how his father was corrupted by the Nazi regime, and how it ties into the current unrest in the US.
As he covers both the dangers of following lies, and how he grew up in a country decimated by them following World War II, Schwarzenegger goes on to explain how countries come out strengthened by these issues - and uses Conan's sword as an example, which he's been holding in his hand the entire time.
You know, because he's Arnie. Anyway, as he explains, "the more you temper a sword, the stronger it becomes. The more you pound it with a hammer and then heat it in a fire, and then thrust it into the cold water and then pound it again... the stronger it becomes."
Honestly, at one point, there was a moment when we thought he was going to recite the Riddle of Steel. Also, isn't Conan known for, well, acting instead of talking? At any rate, it's a very moving and heartfelt message - and it just so happens to feature a giant sword in it.
Take a look.
