Welsh Government Says Statues of “Old White Men” Should be Removed Because They May Cause “Offense” to Britain’s Diverse Population

Summit News | March 13, 2023

The Welsh government says that statues of “old white men” such as Admiral Nelson should be removed or even destroyed because they may be “offensive” to Britain’s increasingly multicultural population, with de facto shrines to diversity set to replace them.

The guidance, which is set to be finalized by the end of the month, argues that the memorials fuel the “perception that the achievements that society considers noteworthy are those of powerful, older, able-bodied white men.”

The government asserts that such statues “can be offensive to people today who see them in a different light,” including as “aggressors who conquered peoples to expand the British Empire.”

Any statue of any historical individual that far-left activists have accused of being embroiled in slavery or colonialism is now at risk of being toppled, including General Arthur Wellesley and admiral Horatio Nelson, who are both celebrated by most for their victories against Napoleon.

  1. What constitutes “old”? I have to say, the ones looking deeply into the abyss of racism have sure proven that the pendulum knows no middle ground. Well done, careerism obsessed brilliant idiots.

  2. Barry

    On the same day that the Cardiff riots began (Wednesday 11th June), Fred Longman, a dock labourer, was stabbed to death in Barry by a Negro sailor: “The black waylaid him, seized him by the throat, pinned him against a wall, and stabbed him under the heart.”

    Another account relates: “The news spread like wildfire, and thousands of people, many being women, raided the negroes’ quarters.”30 The assailant turned out to be a native of the French West Indies.

    Newport

    Rioting broke out at Newport on Friday 6th June and was said to have been caused by a Coloured man accosting a white girl. A soldier intervened and knocked the Coloured man to the ground: “Partisans gathered, and for two hours disturbances ensued. A Chinese laundry, refreshment houses, and lodging houses were wrecked and the furniture was taken into the street and burned.” Another report said that “The coloured men defended themselves with revolvers, pokers and sticks.”

    The rioting culminated the next day in an affray that was only quelled by a police baton charge: “Stones and iron bolts were thrown, and towards midnight the crowd had increased to several thousands. No blacks were to be seen in the streets.”
