Nothing to do with racism but if they keep attacking figures like Churchill that is going to make us very angry in this country, he may have been a
Tory and the Aussies don't like him because of Gallipoli and they have a point it was an ill conceived and badly planned WW1 operation that led to
massive casualty's for commonwealth and British troop's.
The fact is that if Churchill had not been there in WW2 as a politician, had the British not had him as a figure head to rally around then these BLM
protestors would not have had any right's at all, in fact they would be SLAVES today and in fact they would not even have existed in Europe and
possibly in there own nation's since if we had fallen Hitler would have won AND once he had the full might of Europe's resources behind him and
finished off Russia which he would then have been able to do with ease having then only one front to worry about then he would have turned on the US
and there was a very strong Pro Nazi movement there that would have helped him take it quickly, he was also a man with genocidal racial purity
belief's and would have wiped out those races he saw as inferior such as the Black African's - those that were not kept as serf class slaves, there
would not have been white nations and white people calling for an end to his apartheid.
So was Churchill racist and in fact does it bloody matter because it is only because of him that they can even protest in the first place bunch of
ill educated moronic cretinous idiot's.
I am all for the man that kicked the sign's away and truly believe the idiot that vandalized that monument should be forced to do community service
AND be put under a court order forcing them to attend history lessons.
Like the rest of the world I was appalled at the needless killing of an unarmed and restrained man - regardless of his colour and I don't mind the
recent removal of slave traders statues but attacking Churchill - when he is a symbol of far more than himself is the same to me as some pure and
utter scum bag attacking our war memorial's, in short it makes my blood boil.
Fact - Churchill was the right man at the right time, a terrible and right wing peacetime leader but a fantastic leader of a wartime coalition that
included the left and the right in our nation.
No one is saying he was a saint but he was not an EVIL man and he was definitely not a genocidal mass murderer, in fact when Stalin proposed quite
seriously ERADICATING the German's entirely Churchill walked out in disgust, Stalin wanted to repay genocide with yet more genocide - well he had
already committed genocide in his own nation even before the German's did during his purges.
In Short Churchill despite being a Tory - and Tory being a dirty word to me - was a good guy, not a saint but a good guy.
