Reality TV Star Says Teaching Kids About World War II Is Bad For Their Mental Health

Published

on

A British reality television star recently spoke with “Good Morning Britain” where he stated that schools shouldn’t spend a whole lot of time teaching students about World War II, saying it is bad for a child’s mental health.

The comments come in light of criticism candidates on Great Britain’s “The Apprentice” revealed they had no idea when World War II began or ended, leading to them getting bashed on social media.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire:

Trending: WATCH: Biden Appears to Be Reading His Answers Off Monitor During Interview — ‘I Lost That Line’

Freddie Bentley, 22, who has appeared on “The Circle,” stated:

It was a hard situation, World War II; I don’t want anyone to think I’m being disrespectful in that way whatsoever. However, I will stand by the point that I don’t thank it’s educational in the way that we — there’s so many problems going on in the world like Brexit, that’s not talking school, and climate change, which is a situation that I thought we should be aware of. When I left school, I felt like, it hit me like a ton of bricks, cause I didn’t know anything in general life.

Bentley also stated, according to The Daily Mail, “I remember learning it as a child thinking, ‘Oh my God, it’s so intense.” He added, “I don’t think encouraging death or telling people how many people died in the world war is going to make it better.” Bentley suggested teaching the students about how to get a mortgage or how to understand Brexit rather than World War II.

Another guest on the program said, “Millions of people have died; fifty million people died in the second World War, to fight Fascism, to fight tyranny, people who wanted to take away people‘s right to freedom, to the vote, to the franchise. That’s why people should know about the second World War, the first World War, the conflicts that have taken place and the fight for freedom that you and I enjoy.”

Bentley went on to reply, “And I totally get that but I don’t think it needs to be put in such young way to such young children, like mentally, their mental health, to be told that these certain amount of people for Europe.”

The guest continued, “You can’t exaggerate; children need to know that it’s a dangerous world out there. They need to know that crossing the road is sometimes dangerous …”

Bentley answered by saying, “But mental health is on the rise completely and I don’t think that encouraging death or telling people how many people died in a World War is going to help somebody in the future.”

Bentley’s comments were not well received on social media as one person wrote, “This man just shows the state of this country. How can you not respect war heroes?”

Another individual said, “I’m sorry for you as I’m sure this will follow you for years. You need to do some learning about the world and not just how it affects you. You sounded incredibly thick and self absorbed and I’m sure that’s not you, but that’s how you look.”

The comments didn’t seem to bother Bentley a bit who gushed about being a guest on the GMB program.

President Trump Calls On United Nations To Hold China Accountable For Causing Pandemic

Published

on

President Trump has come out and called upon the United Nations to step up to the plate and hold China accountable for causing the coronavirus pandemic that has swept across the globe, killing hundreds of thousands of people and almost leading to economic collapse for America and many other nations across the world. The president made his confrontational speech to the United Nations General Assembly in a recorded address a day earlier at the White House. The tone of his talk made it absolutely clear he’s not at all happy with China, the nation where this mess originated from. via Washington Examiner: His speech contained a list of accusations against Beijing, from allowing travelers to spread what he called the “China virus” around the world to polluting the oceans. “The Chinese government, and the World Health Organization, which is virtually controlled by China, falsely declared that there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission,” Trump said, calling on the U.N. to hold Beijing to account. “Later, they falsely said people without symptoms would not spread the disease,” he said. “The United Nations must hold China accountable for their actions. China absolutely should be held accountable for causing this mess. There are a lot of theories out there that suggest this virus was created and purposefully leaked into the world. We don’t know if that’s true, but even if it isn’t and the whole thing was an accident, the Chinese Communist Party is responsible for all of the horrific loss of life and economic damage this has caused. As such, they need to step up to the plate and make this right. They need to take responsibility for their actions and their blatant failures to get the spread of this illness under control.

Liberal Officials At State And Local Level Using Coronavirus Aid Money For Free College, Guaranteed Income

Published

on

State and local officials are taking full advantage of the millions of dollars they have received from CARES Act funding — before it reverts back to the federal government — by spending the money for many, many different kinds of liberal priorities, including free college, “Trunk or Treating,” or an experimental income program. The CARES Act has provided $139 billion for state and local governments. These payments have been used to fund a plethora of programs, including police budgets and utility assistance for struggling residents. And that is the sort of thing this money is supposed to go toward. Helping folks of all walks of life endure the hardships caused by the coronavirus and the subsequent shutdowns. However, liberals are using this money to support their own little pet projects and causes too. via Fox News: Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is spending millions on free college for more than 600,000 essential workers. Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell agreed to spend $629,000 to hire 15 community relations specialists. Democratic St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter recently announced a guaranteed income program for low-income families using $300,000 in CARES Act money but has received pushback from a fellow Democrat. Earlier in September, Rep. Betty McCollum, D-Minn., wrote a letter to Carter expressing concern that the spending fell outside of federal guidelines and could be subject to recoupment by the U.S. Treasury. https://twitter.com/MayorCarter/status/1301936145585106944 It’s not at all surprising to see liberals take money that was supposed to be designated to help folks struggling in the wake of the pandemic closures for things they’ve always wanted to have the money to put in motion. What’s maddening is these same officials are already standing in line, hands out, begging for more money because there isn’t enough to actually help people in their communities because they misappropriated the…
