Citat: Conan Barbaren

Det här citatet från Conan the Barbarian (filmen) är kul genom att det så tydligt sammanfattar roll-stereotypen Arnold Schwarzenegger gestaltar:

"Khitan General: Hao! Dai ye! We won again! This is good. But what is best in life?
Khitan Warrior: The open steppe, a fleet horse, falcons at your wrist, and the wind in your hair.
Khitan General: Wrong! Conan, what is best in life?
Conan: To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women!
Khitan General: [Cheers]...That is good."

Vi kan jämföra med ev. falska citatet som tillskrivs Genghis Khan här citerat med "disputed" kommentar från Wikiquote:

"The greatest joy for a man is to defeat his enemies, to drive them before him, to take from them all they possess, to see those they love in tears, to ride their horses, and to hold their wives and daughters in his arms.

As quoted in Genghis Khan & the Mongols (1973) by Michael Gibson, p. 3; this has been disputed with the statement that it was "not recorded until a century after his death and is surprisingly out of character." [citation needed]."

En krigare med en sådan enorm framgång i strid blir ju ett enormt beskrivande exempel av samma stereotyp och illustrationer där falska exempel som lyfter fram den till stereotypen snarare än historiska personer blir därför troligare.
