Angry Wow

I have seen the news item. My Father would have been disgusted by this. He was in a POW camp most of the war after being torpedoed in 1940. I canít believe how clear the filming is. No problem seeing the uniforms.

The people who OK'd the video could well have seen the uniforms, but would they have known the difference? Working in a government office does not necessarily make you any kind of historian.

You're a recent hire as a "Communications Specialist" coming right off an education in our progressive school system. You've been screened for your Liberal affiliations and work for a Minister put in Veteran's Affairs after scraping the barrel until it shrieked. Thrice. And now you're expected to know the difference between a 'nazzie' and a legal cannabis bud? We'll OK, they'd get the cannabis bud right.

But hey, even our state broadcaster pointing out the government's error made an error themselves. They are not 'Wehrmacht', they are 'Luftwaffe'.

The likely creative process was eight layers of approvals that mostly read the scripts and planned the shots. But the critical selection of (copyright free) visually appealing footage would be the last step in the chain. The poor schlub who had to make the deadline would have had no time to research or fact check - because the eight layers above used up every available working day and hour. Under the gun!

Hey all, feel free to excuse make till the cows come home but the fact stands that piece of krap that Veterans Affairs Canada produced and run should never have been released. But then again we have a "pm" who says...............

I remember back in high school, (and no the blackboards were not cave paintings) we spent maybe 2 days on WW2 in Social Studies, maybe 10 minutes total on Canada's involvement. I can't imagine they have increased that content much since '86. I have friends my own age who didn't even realize Canadians fought and died in Afghanistan. I can't imagine some junior government staffer straight out of computer/communications/business school would barely know what a nazi is, images of white nationalist goons protesting, god knows what, marching through US cities waving swastika flags is probably a fair amount of young folks perception of nazis. Not that the mistake can or should be justified, it was stupid and shows a lack of any kind of oversight. These days it doesn't really matter what the mistake is, it just seems to matter which side made it. I can't imagine the red hats can be too far behind
