Instagram influencer, 22, moans learning about World War 2 harms millennialsí mental health

A young Instagram influencer has whinged that learning about World War 2 harms millennials’ mental health.

Freddie Bentley, 22, said he thought the schools’ curriculum on the devastating conflict should be cut back because it was “so intense”.

Bentley, who appeared on The Circle, told Good Morning Britain today: “It was a hard situation, World War 2, I don't want anyone to think I'm being disrespectful.”

He added: “I remember learning it as a child thinking ‘Oh my God it's so intense’.”

He thought that any mental health issues a youngster may have could be worsened by learning about the war that saw the Allied forces defeat Nazi Germany.

He told the show’s presenters Ben Shephard and Kate Garraway: “'I don't think encouraging death or telling people how many people died in the world war is going to make it better.”

Instead of youngsters learning about the horrendous war that claimed at least 70million lives, Bentley suggested schools could instruct pupils in topics such as understanding Brexit and how to get a mortgage.

He said: “There's so many problems going on in the world, like Brexit, that's not taught in schools.

“When I left school it hit me like a ton of bricks - I didn't know anything to do with life."

Currently, Key Stage 3 pupils learn about about the war, covering areas such as the rise of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis, the Battle of Dunkirk and Winston Churchill's leadership.

Many though took to social media to take issue with his claims, saying the war was a key historical moment and many had lost their lives for freedom.

The comments come after contestants on The Apprentice revealed they didn’t know when World War 2 started.

During the scavenger hunt task an item on the list was the Alice in Wonderland series which was printed before World War II, which led to several of the candidates asking questions about when the war actually started.

Only controversial contestant Lottie Lion on Team Unison knew the correct dates, telling her group: "Just ensure that it is before 1939."

Civil War 2 is going to be real easy to win if this is the enemy.

Taking gun fire as you try to take Omaha beach

Taking on house to house and little German and French towns with snipers shooting at you

Discovering Birkenau and all the other concentration camps

OG that bothers your little snowflake mind ! why don’t you take a trip to Syria and live there for a week- or better yet go to any province in Pakistan or Afghanistan and try your snowflake crap

"...any mental health issues a youngster may have could be worsened by learning about the war...

To worsen one's mental health implicitly requires a mind.

There's probably no problem here.

Every day, 18 year old young men enlist in Uncle Sam’s shooting club … they put this oxygen-waster to shame.

I mentioned this to my youngest son today. He’s 24. He laughed and said,it is far more likely that this idiot doesn’t want WWII taught because it would inform his fellow Millennial’s that the atrocities committed by Hitler and the NAZI’s were atrocities committed by the National Socialist Party of Germany.

My son doesn’t buy the, it is so traumatic BS. He is firm in his belief that they don’t want it taught because they don’t want his generation to know anything about the Millions Slaughtered by Socialists/Marxists and the abject misery that results from socialism.

This young Scotsman or Brit needs a safe place, as do too many young Americans subjected to indoctrination in schools and colleges staffed by teachers and administrators who are liberal socialist democrats.

Many of the ages 16 to 30 great-grandfathers, grandfathers and fathers of this over-sensitive spawn had no safe places in the trenches of WWI, battles of WWII, Korea, the Falklands, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan, yet those young men stepped up to serve their countries. It’s sad so many of today’s youths are so self-absorbed and unwilling to stand up for God and country.

Am I alone in being slightly disturbed that “Instagram influencer” is actually a thing?
