The Winston Churchill statue in London is among those that have been deemed by the city’s mayor to be “acceptable,” even though it has been encased in plywood to prevent further vandalism. Believe it or not though there are some who would rather Sir Winston’s statue be replaced by one honoring somebody a little less murderous: Joseph Stalin:
Churchill was a genocidal racist colonialist who intentionally killed MILLIONS of Indians in the middle of WWII
If people actually wanted to honor the leader who defeated Nazism, it'd be Stalin. But they'd NEVER build a statue of him. Ever
Because this isn't actually about WWII https://t.co/T53HcdVO8S

Well that’s… something else.
This is the worst take of all time.

It just might be.
Ah yes, Stalin, the guy who killed 30 million people and imprisoned millions more is the person we should totally be honoring. Big brain leftist energy. https://t.co/taPhxs9tVi

No one builds statues of Stalin — people tore down statues of Stalin — because he was a mass-murdering genocidal tyrant who started the war by allying with Hitler to put Eastern Europe to the sword.

Sometimes you read a tweet so spectacularly absurd you just have no idea where to even begin. For me this is one of those tweets. https://t.co/MJkBv9grSt

Stalin had a lot of statues throughout east and central Europe. I wonder why they were taken down?
Admire this tweet's ability to simultaneously criticise Churchill & completely whitewash Joseph Stalin's crimes. https://t.co/zsRUP4DHS3
