This Churchill cafe situation is ridiculous. At this point, you would probably expect me to defend Churchill but no no no, I will be doing nothing of the sort.
This entire situation is dumb. People protest a Churchill cafe because it promotes imperialism. Nothing wrong with that. Churchill may have been a strong leader but up against modern standards, he would be far-right. Being a strong leader doesn’t show you are morally strong (Stalin, Thatcher, Hitler) it just shows that you are better at forcing your ideals on other people. If the war wasn’t happening and Churchill was in power, he probably would have been like Trump. The real controversy stems from what happened when they left and someone shouted that Churchill saved the country and in reply they said Churchill was a rascist. Which…is completely true. He dehumanised Ghandi, used derogatory language against a lot of cultures and claimed to have shot three ‘savages’ in Sudan. He was not unique, as a lot of people at that time were incredibly rascist, but still, nothing they said was false.
Then not only did the ignorant media cover this and try and paint them badly, they focused on one particular person. Oh, that’s surprising, they decided to pick on a Somalian.
Funny how the people saying that you can’t say Churchill was racist are being so racist.
