Winston Churchill – controversies

Winston Churchill’s personal views on empire and race have been attacked by some critics as racist.

  1. View on race – Brits the highest in Darwinian model – Indian (breed like rabbits) above blacks 
  2. Churchill has been criticised for advocating the use of chemical weapons – primarily against Kurds and Afghans.
  3. Breed like rabbits” – no help for India in 1943 – still taking the rice from them – Bengal famine
    • Churchill even appeared to blame the Indians for the famine, claiming they “breed like rabbits”.
  4. Gandhi’s statements – for years Gandhi was a threat to Churchill’s vision for the British Empire.

“I am strongly in favour of using poisoned gas against uncivilised tribes”
