We’ve heard a lot about the rise of “illiberalism” and “authoritarianism” from our friends on the Left. I’m curious though … who has been vandalizing the Winston Churchill monuments?
“The statue of Sir Winston Churchill in downtown Edmonton has been vandalized with red paint.
The paint covering the statue in Churchill Square was discovered Thursday morning. It’s not known when the statue was defaced.
Churchill was Britain’s prime minister from 1940-45 and again from 1951-55.
Churchill’s views on race were controversial and complex, and some of his statements would certainly be deemed racist in 2021 — but he remains a widely respected national hero who led the country to victory during the Second World War.
The Churchill statue in Halifax has come under scrutiny, and the world famous statue in England’s Parliament Square has been defaced numerous times.
In 2020, protesters sprayed “was a racist” on the plinth of the Sir Winston Churchill statue in London. …”
What do you think?
Should Winston Churchill be cancelled?
I don’t think this was anyone on our side who did this.
It goes without saying that I don’t care for Winston Churchill. He is a curious target for Antifa though. We’ve been told by the Lincoln Project that these people are just like World War II veterans.
