Daniel Hannan used an odd comparison to defend Churchill and everybody made the same joke – the only 13 you need
Like most people, Winston Churchill had both good and bad character traits. However, it’s widely considered that one of his worst characteristics was his attitude to some other races and nationalities.
Churchill on Indians: "I hate Indians. They are a beastly people with a beastly religion."
On Palestinians: "barbaric hordes who ate little but camel dung."
Called Sudanese people "savages" and laughed about killing them.

Clearly, there’s a strong case for arguing that Britain’s most-beloved prime minister was a racist, so when Brexiter, Daniel Hannan, made this comment, it sparked quite a heated response.
You think Churchill was a racist? Just wait till you hear about the guy he defeated.

These 13 people made a very obvious point.
Just wait till you hear about 'more than one person can suck'. https://t.co/h0dNoYRFbG

Saying someone is less racist than hitler should be a joke. https://t.co/pqLcbLNaU8

truly impeccable logic, I has forgotten that only one person could be racist at a time https://t.co/kUOJQ53iHi

Newsflash: two different people can be racist at the same time https://t.co/CAldOQqC17

Shocking I know, but racists can often disagree on some things. https://t.co/ad3yPrDtxs

See we've reached that stage of "well, if racists in history do that exist, there can only be one" https://t.co/Usg8I9gH3J

Churchill wasn't Hitler? What a fucking low bar.
But then again his crimes were only against brown people, so who gives a toss? https://t.co/9uT03IFnSm

Someone added an extra dimension to the criticism.
It's adorable how these types think that the Brits defeated the Germans. I love it as much as when my niece and nephew get excited for Santa Claus to arrive. https://t.co/PWGs0ONOU8
