So I just saw that post on twitter… Frasher does realize that the Canadians didn’t set fire to the White House? Canada wasn’t a country at that point, and it wasn’t even the British Canadians that did it. The attacking force came directly from Britain.
Posting this here cause I can’t be bothered to get a twitter account :PJune 20, 2012 at 6:44 am #38428
how long have you watch the show ? ….June 20, 2012 at 8:45 am #38443
Yeah, chat and Fraser had an argument about this that lasted most of the show one time which Fraser seemed to win (I know absolutely nothing about it so I didn’t contribute). I can’t remember what it was during though, maybe Modern Warefare 3? Does anyone else know for sure? I’d quite like to watch it again.June 20, 2012 at 9:16 am #38450
I remember the topic came up during one of the Mario Party episodes as well. I want to say Mario Party 2; but I can’t remember exactly.
But yeah pretty much what lihje said. That’s what Fraser does. Trollin ‘Merica 24/7.June 20, 2012 at 9:22 am #38452
Pretty sure it was during Skyward Sword, when he got all patriotic about penicillin.
Might be wrong though, it’s been a while.June 20, 2012 at 11:26 am #38472

it was skyward sword, it was the part where he was in the desert makin his way to the thunder dragon °3°June 20, 2012 at 12:15 pm #38488
He might have mentioned it during the Skyward Sword shows, but I’m pretty sure I heard it the first time he mentioned it and I didn’t watch much of that playthrough. Mario Party seems like it could be right.June 20, 2012 at 12:42 pm #38494
It might not be the specific moment that badthoughts is talking about; but Fraser has let his Canadian pride show in several episodes. I know the War of 1812 has come up more than once.June 20, 2012 at 1:12 pm #38500
Wasn’t it Costume Quest?June 20, 2012 at 8:44 pm #38566
This is the video, you wanted at 12:00… makes me wish they never stopped playing Skyward Sword… ;-;

I’ve heard many conflicting arguments on this, and a quick Google search does nothing but further confuse the matter. I was under the impression that yes, it was British forces, but a mix of forces from Canada and Britain, the majority being Canadian. They don’t say Canadian forces because Canada was part of Britain, but it was British forces trained in and sent from Canada, lead by an officer from Britain. Most results I have found agree with this, but there are still many that argue against it, although many seem to confuse the fact that just because it says “British” doesn’t mean it wasn’t British from Canada, who were then still referred to as British.
And if this is the case, people also argue that we can’t brag about it because we were still British. But by that logic, why are the Americans able to brag about the American revolution if they were still part of Britain? Just because we were part of Britain doesn’t mean those people’s descendants don’t get to feel pride once the country gains independence.June 21, 2012 at 1:01 am #38584
I never got patriotism anyway, let’s just like and be proud of ALL the places and be done with it.June 21, 2012 at 1:28 am #38585
Just because people believed it because it was on the internet.

It’s one thing to have pride in your country, it’s another to take said pride and turn it into ‘all other countries are inferior’. On the other hand though, it’s not like you get to choose what country you are born/grow up in.
