Canadian college students say dead Nazi general a good choice to lead peacekeeping mission

David MenziesMission Specialist

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wants Canada to get more involved in peacekeeping missions in certain African nations. So how do students at Ryerson University feel about having an experienced military man — like, perhaps, Hitler's General Erwin Rommel — heading up the campaign?

Watch as I ask them if the “Desert Fox” is the right man for the job.

Syria with peacekeepers would stop the immigration. Rebel against peacekeepers says to all they support the migration of refugees to Canada.

General Rommel fought for Germany out of national loyalty not because he was a Nazi nor did he believe in either the base beliefs of Socialism and Fascism that was behind the Nazi party. If he were around today he would still be fighting for Germany of today and even Spec Ops and Tankers of the US military revere him because he really is one of the best commanders ever. Know the WHOLE history first!

David you still need to act on my suggestion , tell them you are the wallet inspector for the area, see how many wallets you get.

OH MY, they are so smart , i feel so inferior. Maybe Andrew Stephenson is not lying when he says he taught at a university level, since that means so much these days.
I am damn glad i am almost 50 and lived over 4 decades in a FREE country, that is changing everyday.

Duuuuuhhhh – - If I give the right answer will it get me laid?

Even Mark Dice would be shocked at the weapons grade stupidity in the frozen white wasteland of Canadian Campuses.

Deborah Graupner—-“These kids have no life skills at all, so they would be useless in any crisis.”
Yes Deborah, I’m sure we all agree. Unfortunately it would be scary if someone like Putin saw the clip and read the comments. When the snowflakes are in charge, North America could be conquered in a month.

These kids would probably welcome invaders with open arms instead of defending our land 💔

and this is what the judges, who now sit on the Supreme Court of Canada, sounded like in the 60’s.

Bravo Zulu – I completely agree with your assessment! I think the teachers and professors, and those running our education systems into the ground, should be charged for what they’ve done to the future generations. I’m grateful to have been blessed with a desire to learn, and to have grown up when we were taught to be independent thinkers, and we learned skills that would help us to contribute to society. I’m also glad that I’m getting old, so that I don’t have to live under these snowflakes for too long. These kids have no life skills at all, so they’d be useless in any crisis! I pity them, and I hope when they realize they’ve been robbed of their individuality, that they take out on those in the education system, who brainwashed them in ignorance, and stupidity.

Excellent point – let me re-phrase it – I despise the modern university student.

Is that a huge generalization?


But so far it seems the vast majority fit into MY description – “useless as tits on a bull”.

Best to all.

Rommel was a genius. If he had not been starved of funding by Hitler the outcome of the war may have been very different. Trudeau and these students, not so much genius but borderline retarded. I bet if you asked Trudeau to look at Rommel as a possible leader of his fantasy “peacekeeping” mission he would say that all options are being considered.
commented 2016-10-03 20:32:34 -0400
Rommel was a part of the 1944 plot to assassinate Hitler, executed for it, but not by meat hook due to his African campaign. He was a part of the military who wanted the Nazis gone, and gave up his life for that. Maybe some of these students have a grasp, tenuous, of history.

This report is positive proof that Trudeau got the moron vote.

Just one more example of another generation of students that have been failed by the education system in Ontario.
If you ask teachers why students today are below what was the average in math, sciences, English literacy skills and history, compared to 3-4 generations ago they will either reject the notion entirely or go into some lecture on how they are still trying to recover from the massive damage cause by Mike Harris. By any known standards but their own these teachers have and continue to fail to give their students a proper education.

The best part is that David was holding a photo of the general in his hand, clearly visible to the student he was speaking with. Iron Cross and all. Still no clue. Probably all the students saw this. Also no clue.
