Seventy-six years after the end of the Second World War, Churchill’s legacy has come under attack in the halls of academia. During a discussion hosted by Churchill College, Cambridge, on February 11, 2021, one participant claimed that Churchill embodied white supremacy. History does not support this gross and offensive allegation; ironically, it is only due to the courage and essential leadership that Churchill provided during Britain’s darkest hours that allow these individuals the freedom to discuss his legacy in this manner, no matter how ill-informed. Simply put, equating Churchill to a dangerous, racist, and violent ideology is wrong and should be condemned.
