I watched this in the moment and this piece is why I am so astounded at comments by the Lefties that call our PM the disgusting names referencing dictators and chairman's (note the lower cap)Those idiots are Socialists and Communists, NOT CONSERVATIVES!I'm not sure that most of these kids today, understand what they are hearing and embracing.Under the conditions that they "support" they would NOT BE ALLOWED TO demonstrate or speak.I am baffled by the hypocrisy and confusion, it makes me feel like our adults have abandoned our youth by stacking them in childcare warehouses.
Bec, the kids truly don't know I believe. It's just not taught in our schools which is unfortunate. For some reason I believe the powers that be want to keep this kind of information hidden.
Nothing new here to me.Everything here was standard history 101 in my high school.Glenn Beck does a great job bringing this to light.Are we listening yet America?The West?Or do we go through the motions of world war again?Defender of the West
Well as you have likely seen from other posts of mine, we had to really get our daughter unglued from her teaching professors. I cannot even repeat the thing that she was calling our PM. She now volunteers for Jason Kenney and is NOT a teacher.She "teaches" in other ways and in another industry but it was astonishing what occurred to her values at the university level....AND IN AB!! It is the unionization of the teaching industry imo. Had they stayed neutral, accountable and free enterprise, we would be still seeing the imaginative and enterprising individuals that I encountered and supported.
Good for your daughter, Bec. Glad to know she saw the light.
It is truly frightening that the further behind us is the fact of these genocidal killers and their twisted ideologies, the more distorted, and even romanticized, becomes history towards them. I've had several conversations in my life with people who have experienced some of this first hand.When I was about 10, my parents asked a Russian couple, good friends of theirs, to relate their flight from their homeland in 1917 to Canada escape communism.Some years later I worked with a man who fled Hungary at the age of 18 just ahead of the Soviet invasion of 1968. Truly remarkable story.Still later, I worked with another fellow who was a youth in Nazi Germany. He was in Dresden the night it was firebombed. His family survived the Soviet army's invasion that led to a communist East Germany.And still later, I worked with another man who was a youth in Austria when the Nazis took over there.I'll tell anyone right now: At least 90% of Canadians don't have one single blessed clue as to the truth of what these ideologies and the barbarian societies and events driven by them were really all about...and the number of those who don't know grows exponentially every day....particularly amongst the left.
I saw the documentary. At first I thought it was just going to be a rip off of Jonah Goldberg's book Liberal Fascism, but it developed into a very informative program on the history the world's worst totalitarian murderers and despots.
Thanks for posting this, it was very powerful. Working all day, I rely on fellow bloggers to keep me up to speed and informed.

I believe everyone needs to know the truth. It's up to me to my part.Remember, "you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free."
This is my home. I hope you respect it. I will not tolerate profanity or anything that is not suitable for family consumption.
