WE reported yesterday on the BBC’s brazen, poisonous branding of Winston Churchill as a racist killer.
Poisonous because the allegation that our wartime Prime Minister was responsible for the deaths of up to three million Indians in the 1943 Bengal famine was biased, partial and unbalanced; brazen in that the corporation has refused to apologise for the outrageous News at Ten attack on the man acknowledged as our greatest Briton.
Henry Getley’s article also noted that the Times newspapers now also seemingly subscribe to this abhorrent populist move to denigrate Churchill, despite the absence of evidence and an apparently deliberate ignoring of context.
To us at TCW it feels like a dangerous dog whistling of the worst sort and all to please – or appease – the most ignorant and aggressive end of the so called ‘anti-racist’ movement.
Is trashing Churchill’s reputation deliberately fuelling the fires of division and prejudice? Is it time to stop denigrating the man who courageously led the West’s battle for freedom against the unspeakable evil of the Nazis? We want to know what you think.
