In the eyes of the contemporary left, Churchill was a far-right figure, a xenophobe and an Islamophobe

Reader comment on item: Churchill, Hitler, and Islam

Submitted by Anon (Israel), Jul 24, 2017 at 18:53

Churchill never showed an inkling of support for "diversity", i.e, for endless mass-immigration from everywhere in an attempt to change demography. Churchill never complained that "we are shockingly white". He did not argue that populations once under British colonial rule should be encouraged to live in Britain.

And De Gaulle was another hateful far-right figure who actually went out of his way to explain that the number of people coming into France from the Muslim world, or for example, China, must be kept small in order to avoid changing the character of the country, noting that French people are white and Christian.

And given that no government, neither left or right wing prior to Churchill, was advocating for ever increasing "diversity", and neither party was inclined to turn the English into a minority in their historic land, all governments were 'far right'.
Indeed, you would probably not find a single country of any kind in the history of man, which believed in 'diversity'; in mass endless immigration for the sake of transforming their demographics and turning themselves into a minority for its own sake. So actually, by the standards of the contemporary left, every society in history is and has been far-right.

Now that Qatar is fast becoming the darling of the left, will they say it is ultra-xenophobic and racist due to its (non) immigration policy?
