This happened in Edmonton, Alberta, but other than wanting the perps arrested for vandalism, doesn’t anger me, just annoys and irritates

18 Jun

Why doesn’t it anger me?

Because Sir Winston Churchill wasn’t Canadian, or even British North American, part of common history with Britain; he was British after Canada had become its own country, already.

It’s that simple.

When they vandalize statues of prominent Canadians through our history, like our first Prime Minister Sir John A. Macdonald, or others like colonial British military figures and such, that angers me.

I find this annoying, as part of ‘all whitey bad’, I just can’t get as angry about it as destroying a statue of one of our own.

Still, arrest them, police, else what are you good for?

    Don’t call Edmonton police. I saw this today and have sent an email to the Attorney General.

    I have no idea what possessed the cops to do this. This was supposed to be a welfare check on an older woman living alone. The narrator is a retired cop and he is exasperated. I don’t know what it is, but for the last few weeks, the worst reports are coming from state and provincial capitals. You would think that is where the most on the ball cops would be.

    Sorry, Winston. It’s just hate on dead white men that did something useful in their lifetimes.

    Speaking of statues, a while back I heard that Edward Cornwallis was taken down at Halifax and thought he could be put up in Yorktown, Virginia. It was a kind thought but it was his brother, Charles, who led the British there. It still might work as a good place to store his statue.

      I’d rather they just put it into storage here, rather than send it out of country, and put it up somewhere where, like this Churchill, it will get attacked just for being a dead white male.

        While the vandals wouldn’t care that he was the founder of Halifax, they would damage the statue out of pure spite. You make a good point.

        I’ll bet the idiots who vandalized this Churchill statue didn’t even know who he was.

        They claim to be antiracists, antifascists – and just like when they go after Abe Lincoln statues, in going after a Churchill statue, they’re going after a symbol they ought to embrace, given their ostensible beliefs. They actually have no beliefs except hate whitey.

    Churchill sucked because he contributed to the destruction of Europe and spread of communism.

    Of course, the retards who damaged this statue did so for other reasons.

      Yeah, I don’t like how he and Roosevelt allied with the Soviet Union, and in return for cooperation let Stalin have a free hand in eastern Europe.
