Trauma in the skies or patriotic pastime? Generation Trudeau debate air show bans

David MenziesMission Specialist

Taking in the Canadian International Air Show is a Labour Day weekend tradition in Toronto. But some want the air show grounded because the sight and sound of low-flying jet fighters might "trigger" refugees from war torn lands. 


So, what do the Air Cadets who comprise Generation Trudeau have to say about this high-flying idea?

Bloody liberals…

Here is a thought if you don’t like jets don’t go to air shows.

I say get a life butter cup this country has become a bunch of crying ass babies and are offended by everything they see in life. This millennial generation is a disgrace.. And if the end of the world was to happen they would have no clue on how to survive

I would tend to think refugees would be more triggered by someone dressed like Jihadi John.

I’m starting to get triggered by bull shit but I’ll try not to go all Rambo on their asses.

Didn’t the legal refugees fly to Canada in a jet? What a crazy suggestion, obviously that reporter isn’t able to report a real story. I love the air show & it’s a Canadian tradition, that reporter simply wants to be a s…..disturber.
That blonde was posing for the camera instead of giving an intelligent answer & that last interview with the dark skin young man & blonde female gave the perfect answer.

David, quit interviewing blondes on your show. You are just reinforcing the blond stereotype of stupidity.
When the sound of freedom reigns, I get a bit of a chubby.
If SJWs are too cowardly to fight for thier country, then they should kiss the ass of those who will.
Retired Military!

There should be an IQ test to be eligible to vote.

Wasn’t last year’s attack on the air show by the death Star based upon carbon footprint? That did not gain traction, so this year’s attack is based on sensitivity of refugees’ maybe possible feelings. From this video, that is not gaining traction either. I wonder what next year’s attack will be based upon?

Canadian troop returning from Iraq would be more traumatized by the sound because when they heard them over there they knew they weren’t ours . The liberals took care of that .
commented 2017-09-06 17:18:45 -0400
It is the sound of freedom.

Without that sound those refugees would possibly be dead.

Celebrate that sound for all you can.
commented 2017-09-06 17:10:39 -0400
Maybe next year they should load up those fighters with bombs and air to ground missiles and use them to surgically remove Toronto Star headquarters from the face of the Earth. My trauma is already greatly relieved just thinking about it.

Its to late the come triggered.

It has become the fashion nowadays to condemn and oppose anything to do with what was considered the normal just a few months or years ago.
So called journalists especially, find relatively normal events and subjects and attempt to turn them into controversial subjects and reports that trigger the SJW’s and the university and college students into feeling hurt and getting their sensibilities in a knot. The so called journalists no doubt believing that their ridiculous rants will elevate them into that higher journalistic bracket where people will read or listen to them and their rants and declare them brilliant. It also boils down to selling news papers in any way that they can and escalating their ratings.
Little do they know that for the most part the public thinks they are utter idiots and and brilliant only in pushing fake news and lies and trying to make SJW’s even more paranoid than they already are.
After all the only ones that would agree with stupid statements like those made by the Star reporter are the SJW’s and those seeking sympathy for their mislead feelings of hurt and fear, the poor babies.
Although it was surprising to hear some of the comments made to David by young people on the streeta on Toronto.

If the Star’s editorialist could produce actual people who had been genuinely terrified and traumatized by the air show, I might start to think there was a real problem here; otherwise, I think the editorialist is just another pacifist who is upset by the idea of us having a military.

Frankly, I can’t help but think that hearing jets flying overhead that aren’t dropping bombs might actually help HEAL the refugees that are here from war-torn places. That would help them get used to the idea that jets aren’t automatically going to hurt them.

Again, the Canadian majority has to suffer for the Clown Prince’s pets. Why am I not surprised?!?!?!

We’ve had airshows since there were airplanes. Past immigrants from war torn Europe after both World Wars seemed to be able to endure the sound of the same airplanes that bombed Europe into dust. But not our current crop. Oh, no. They need special airplane free zones.

I swear these lefties are stupid seeking missiles. If there is a stupid idea they can hit it dead centre from 20 miles away.

Welcome to Narnia, where its always winter but never Christmas.

Toronto Star – what a stupid idea!
commented 2017-09-06 14:17:51 -0400
I would have thought that low flying Jets would make Trudeau’s Rapeugees feel at home, rather than upset them.
