DESTRUCTION: Black Lives Matter, ANTIFA Rioters Deface Statue of Winston Churchill in Britain
A group of anti-civilizational rioters targeted a statue of Winston Churchill in Britain on Sunday afternoon, defacing the monument for the man who led the United Kingdom and allied forces toward a victory over Nazi Germany.
The vandalism can be seen here:
Some in the crowd calling for the war time prime minister's statue to be brought down, others telling people to stop vandalising. 'His statue will only fall on us, let's not satisfy a stereotype'… Though everyone can agree on one thing, 'fuck Churchill' pic.twitter.com/a0xmwWkUAK

Churchill has been credited by historians for saving Europe against Nazi Germany, a regime that was arguably the most racist and anti-Semitic in history. Despite his incredible work in beating back the forces of racism and anti-antisemitism during his years as Prime Minister, Churchill’s legacy is still being desecrated by the left-wing mob.
Der Spiegel outlines Churchill’s incredible courage and how he faced off against Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. Churchill’s victory over Hitler saved liberalism throughout Europe and would pave the way for movements like social justice to rise.
It was the summer of 1940, and Hitler, who was the Chancellor of the German Reich by then, was closer to winning the war than he would ever be again. The German had overrun Poland, occupied Norway and defeated and humiliated France, a major power. It seemed only a matter of time before Hitler would dominate all of Europe. He was aligned with the Soviets and the Americans were still neutral and biding their time.
Ironically, it was Great Britain, the only country Hitler truly admired and respected, that defied the dictator. Churchill declared that he had only one goal: “Victory — victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be.”
Great Britain persevered for a good year, from France’s capitulation until Hitler’s attack on the Soviet Union on June 22, 1941, despite German air raids on London and Coventry, despite German victories in Africa, the Balkans and Scandinavia, and despite the threat of national bankruptcy.
And Churchill deserved the credit for this perseverance.
The prime minister, with his trademark Cuban cigars, polka dot bow tie and conspicuous hats, became the world’s most important symbolic figure of resistance against Nazi Germany. Whenever he appeared in public, the crowds would raise their hands and part their index and middle fingers to form the victory symbol, just as he had done.
Hitler berated his rival as a “lunatic,” “paralytic” and “world arsonist.” Churchill shot back, calling Hitler a “wicked man,” the “monstrous product of former wrongs and shame” and said that “Europe will not yield itself to Hitler’s gospel of hatred.” It soon became clear that the loser in this duel would pay with his life.
The perseverance of the British was of great and probably decisive importance in shaping the course of World War II. How else could the United States have launched an invasion of the European continent if the British Isles hadn’t been available to it as a giant aircraft carrier?
ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter have initiated a full-blown cultural genocide, and they want to destroy all symbols that are a reminder of the greatness of Western Civilization beating back tyranny and injustice. They are more dangerous to the future of the West than ISIS could ever hope to be.
