The man voted ‘greatest ever Briton’ was a vile racist, imperialist and eugenics enthusiast, writes CALLUM ALEXANDER SCOTT
JANUARY 12, 2018

TODAY the latest Winston Churchill film, Darkest Hour, opens in British cinemas. It is already being tipped for the Oscars, with Gary Oldman’s portrayal of Churchill at the helm of speculation.

I can attest, having already seen the film, that Oldman’s performance is indeed brilliant, but let us be clear. While it is a great piece of cinema that, artistically speaking, deserves, and will almost certainly receive, numerous awards, it is also a film that glorifies a certifiably vile man.

When watching we should bear in mind that Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill, the man voted “greatest Briton” by the British public in 2002, was not just a “terribly inconsiderate man,” as one of his secretaries once described him. In fact, she said she’d “never known anyone who was so inconsiderate.” He was also a staunch imperialist, a racist supremacist and a eugenicist who advocated the forced sterilisation of the mentally ill, prevention of their marriage and their internment in compulsory labour camps.

In December 1910, aged 36, Churchill wrote to prime minister Herbert Asquith warning of the “unnatural and increasingly rapid growth of the feeble-minded and insane classes” (general terms then used to describe the mentally ill and impaired).

If you want to know the TRUTH about Churchill, Then Read this Book :ohmy:

The British Mad Dog: Debunking the Myth of Winston Churchill Paperback
by M S King (Author),

*250 Pages / 500 Images Check any list of ‘great men’ of the 20th Century and you’re sure to find Winston Churchill ranked near the top. It was the courage, the strength, the indomitable will and the inspirational oratory of ‘The British Bull Dog’ - we are told - that saved Britain and the ‘free world’ from capitulating to Hitler. For such noble attributes and deeds, statues of ‘Sir Winston’ stand all over England, and even in Canada, the USA and continental Europe. Countless schools bear his name, as do parks, towns, squares, highways, streets, tanks, submarines, ships, mountain ranges, trust funds and even cigars. More than just a great statesman, Churchill was – the court-historians assure us – a literary giant as well. His numerous historical works made him one of the most prolific writers ever to serve as head of state. There is one wee-little problem with this flattering historical narrative of Churchill -- it is false! And by false, author M S King doesn’t merely mean to say embellished, exaggerated or incomplete. No, the entire tale is a monstrous lie

The horrible truth about Winston Churchill

A recent film and media reviews are busy singing the praises of Winston Churchill.
PETER FROST begs to differ


GEORGE W BUSH installed a bust of Winston Churchill in the Oval Office at the White House. When Barack Obama came to power he had the bust returned to Britain.

Obama’s Kenyan grandfather, Hussein Onyango Obama, was imprisoned in one of the concentration camps Churchill and his imperialists had invented.

Churchill was born in 1874 into a Britain that was painting huge areas of the world map bloody red.

Just three years later Victoria crowned herself Empress of India, and the rape and pillage that would mark Britain’s advance across Africa and much more of the globe moved up a gear.

At Harrow School and then Sandhurst the young Winston learnt the simple message: the superior white man was conquering the primitive, dark-skinned natives, and bringing them the benefits of Christian civilisation.

Kenyan leader Jomo Kenyatta and later Archbishop Desmond Tutu would sum it up in a beautiful single paragraph.

“When the British missionaries arrived, we Africans had the land and the minerals and the missionaries had the Bible. They taught us how to pray with our eyes closed. When we opened them, they had the land and we had the Bible.”

As soon as he could, Churchill charged off to take his part in these various barbarous and criminal adventures. He described them as “a lot of jolly little wars against barbarous peoples.”

First came the Swat Valley, now part of Pakistan. Here he judged his enemy were merely “deranged jihadists” whose violence was explained by a “strong aboriginal propensity to kill.”

He gladly took part in raids that laid waste to whole valleys, destroying houses and burning crops.
