That Winston Churchill is still perceived as a hero by many today is truly peculiar

'I hate Indians. They are a beastly people with a beastly religion. The famine was their own fault for breeding like rabbits.' - Winston Churchill

'I do not understand this squeamishness about the use of gas. I am strongly in favor of using gases against uncivilized tribes. The moral effect should be good... and it would spread a lively terror...' -Winston Churchill, Great Britain's then Colonial Secretary, referring to the Kurds in Iraq, in an official communication, 1921
