Is it time for Britain to stop revering Churchill?
He was a fat, alcoholic, warmongering Freemason who believed that the Jews were superior to everyone else. He basically sold this country to America and is largely responsible for the sorry situation Britain found itself in at the end of the war.

Just because Churchill made some dodgy decisions whilst in Government, does not mean that we should forget about all the decent decisions he made during his time Governing the UK during the 2nd WW.
Though he was the Prime Minister he didn't work alone, so perhaps more credit should be shared with his colleagues and unsung/unknown back office staff that helped and advised him. Plus all the Women that worked on the Land, worked for MOD cracking Coded messages, flew and maintained bomber planes etc.... The scores of average citizens that blacked out their windows at night, Dug for Victory and followed the Government safety guidelines for their countries welfare.

Rather severe judgement. Fat: true, but not a disqualifying characteristic. Alcoholic: while he certainly enjoyed more than a nip or two with his cigar, I don't think he fit the usual definition of alcoholic. Warmongering: deplorably close to true, but as P.M. he was faced with a situation requiring war. Freemason: So were a great many people, including George Washington and one of my cousins (a four-flushing phony in American terms). As for selling out to the Yanks, remember his mother was a Yank, Jenny Jerome. There is even a major street in The Bronx named for her family. I think he did the best he could in a difficult time.

Well, since many around Churchill wanted to surrender to Germany early in the war, how would the rest of WW II been fought? Couldn't bomb Germany from England. Couldn't invade Normandy. Go in through Italy? We did that, didnt work. Wait for the Soviets? They almost lost to Germany. Sounds like he was very important.

I’d rather revere him than a criminal like George Floyd.

The major problem of Churchill was his way in handling Ireland. Nowadays, reeducation is replacing death penalty. Negotiation and debate have replaced wars.

Churchill was an epitome of courage and resilience in a time of crisis, ie, the Blitz.

Such tragic ignorance.

He was a warmongering drunk who plunged this country into economic disaster which ultimately caused the influx of third world savages that changed Britain beyond all recognition.
That's not what our brave and patriot soldiers died for. The poor devils died in vein and were hoodwinked into believing foreigners would not infest the British Isles after VE day.
