CAGE – TO COMMEMORATE “ONE OF THE WORLD’S GREATEST STATESMAN”

churchill-five-pound-note

To commemorate “one of the world’s greatest statesmen”, Winston Churchill, the UK Government has released a new £5 note…

Here’s a few quotes from the ‘great’ man:

BENGAL FAMINE / INDIA

“I hate Indians. They are a beastly people with a beastly religion.”

“The famine is their own fault for breeding like rabbits.”

This was during the Bengal famine in 1943 when over 3 million Indians died due to starvation. As people ate grass and leaves, Churchill’s Empire increased tax and export of wheat to stockpile supplies in Europe.

WHITE SUPREMACIST:

In 1937, he told the Palestine Royal Commission:

“I do not admit for instance, that a great wrong has been done to the Red Indians of America or the black people of Australia. I do not admit that a wrong has been done to these people by the fact that a stronger race, a higher-grade race, a more worldly wise race to put it that way, has come in and taken their place.”

ON THE USE OF CHEMICAL WEAPONS AGAINST KURDS:

“I cannot understand this squeamishness about the use of gas. I am strongly in favour of using poisoned gas against uncivilised tribes.”

VIEWS ON ISLAM/ MUSLIMS:

“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia [rabies] in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy.

“Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.”

ON PALESTINIANS:

“(The Palestinians are) barbaric hoards who ate little but camel dung.”

  1. If Mr Churchill had made peace with Hitler, as Rudolf Hess was sent on a mission to do, the world would be a very different place. The UK government declared war on Germany, they called Germany an aggressor. What had Germany done that was against UK interests? Churchill is one of the reason’s the world is in such a mess. He is partly responsible that we now have a “multi-cultural” country now. Hitler never wanted a war with the UK, Churchill made sure he had one, Churchill was the aggressor, the UK where the people who declared war on Germany. Who knows how prosperous Europe would be today?

    1. I’ll resist the urge to correct your English and instead point out you missed the point of the article totally.

      It is not a matter of whether Churchill was good or bad for England or Europe, but that he was an Imperialist bent on destruction and oppression of ‘uncivilized’ native people’s across the world.

      In this he was no different to Hitler. You can argue which was better Europe, or England or the Germanic peoples with your fellow nationalist types, I really don’t care.

      It’s not one was good, the other bad, it was a case of both being evil and bad.
