London Councillor Promotes Petition To Remove Churchill Mural

“Churchill was in no doubt a racist and a white supremacist.”

A petition to remove a mural of Winston Churchill is receiving attention after a London councillor promoted it and declared he is “Proud to be standing up for what’s right.”

The petition on Change.org targets the mural of Churchill that resides on a building side in Croydon, an area of London with a more than 50% BAME population.

The creator of the petition, Joe O’Brien, writes “Croydon is a rich, multicultural community, so why do we have an old, racist, bigoted, white man looking down on us?”

“Whatever you opinions on him being a ‘war hero’, he led atrocities in Ireland, Kenya, and India which still have lasting repercussions today. He is a controversial figure who was openly bigoted and racist.” O’Brien adds.

“With the Black Lives Matter movement gaining momentum, I think removing this mural and replacing it with something reflective of Croydon would be an important demonstration of solidarity.” O’Brien concludes, adding that “Churchill wouldn’t like our community.”

The petition was promoted on Twitter by Croydon Labour councillor Chris Clark:

Clark told reporters that “I knew not everyone would agree with the sentiment behind the petition, but I think it raises an important point about the way history is understood in this country, and I think sharing it was absolutely the right thing to do.”

“I think it’s important that people have a 3D view of our natural history, rather than buying into a nostalgic celebration of our imperial past.” Clark added.

Responses to the councillor’s support of the petition drew mixed responses on Twitter, with some lambasting the move. Clark responded to a supporter, saying that he was “Proud to be standing up for what’s right.”

Clark responded to critics who referenced Chuchill’s refusal to surrender to Hitler:

The mural, made up of extracts from Churchill’s personal journal, has been present for almost 4 years, and was painted by Brooklyn-based artist David Hollier.

A second petition to remove the mural has also appeared, and now actually has had more people sign it.

This one calls on the council to remove the mural and replace it with work “created by artists from our BAME community”.

The creator states “With recent events both in the US over the killing of George Floyd and demonstrations here, including the toppling of the statue of Colston the slave trader in Bristol, focus is shifting towards interrogating Britain’s colonial past.”

“Churchill was in no doubt a racist and a white supremacist.” the petition further states.

Should the mural of Churchill be removed, Croydon residents will still have to look at the leader’s face every day anyway, given that Churchill is pictured on every five pound note in the country.

Why Didn’t This Video Go Viral?

If only talent translated to virtue

This says everything about the world we live in.

The Library of Congress decided in its infinite wisdom to loan a flute owned by founding father James Madison to the pop star Lizzo, making her the only person to ever be allowed to play the instrument, which dates from 1813.

How was this presented to the public?

The flute was transported to Lizzo’s DC concert, where she proceeded to parade around with barely anything on, twerking and gyrating her morbidly obese behind while blowing into the flute.

It’s worse than the movie Idiocracy.

But that’s not the entire story.

The museum had invited Lizzo to come and play the instrument, because, although it may come as a shock, she can actually play the flute and is talented at it.

Lizzo did visit the Library, and did play the instrument, with clothes on and without shaking her ass around.

So why didn’t that video make any headlines? Why didn’t that video go viral?

Because having actual talent and engaging in real culture is discouraged in favour of dumbed down degrading ass shaking clown shows.
