so now the left wants to judge Churchill on what he said before he was P.M
The left cannot for whatever reason make any sense.
Who cares what he said or did prior to becoming Prime Minister.
The facts are Churchill led his country through its darkest hour, he was the glue that held the country together and that is the bottom line.
what he said, or did prior to becoming Prime Minister is irrelevant, what he did during his country’s need is relevant and that is what history is judging Churchill on
Its like FDR, every body on the left favorite hero, he was no hero, he single handedly armed the communists in Russia and China, Interned Japanese Americans not Japanese captured soldiers, but American citizens, because he was racist against the Japanese.
Yes some of Churchill’s mistake was giving the Russians some of the technologies, and he knew Stalin was not to be trusted but his ministry did anyways.
Bottom line was FDR was just the leader of a powerful country who wanted to have skin in the game, Churchill had skin in the game, his country and he steered it through its darkest hour.
If that isn’t a statesmen I dont know what is, FDR wasn’t.
