Quote:
Former NASA astronaut and Navy veteran Scott Kelly apologized Sunday after facing backlash for a tweet praising Winston Churchill.

“One of the greatest leaders of modern times, Sir Winston Churchill said, ‘in victory, magnanimity.’ I guess those days are over,” Mr. Kelly, a veteran of four space flights,tweeted to his 5.76 million followers Sunday afternoon.

The tweet received some backlash, with users blaming Churchill for the Bengal famine of 1943 and comparing the late British prime minister to the genocidal dictator he helped defeat, Adolf Hitler.

Given that Churchill literally saved the world you'd think anyone with any sense of proportion or knowledge of history would put his undoubted flaws in context.

I agree.  Churchill was an incredible leader admired not just in the UK, but around the world for his courage and intelligence in the most horrible situations of the 20th century. To be blamed for a Bengali famine in the middle of that war is a bit over the top.

I get the same mindless attitude concerning the American War Between the States and Confederacy.  The mob doesn't care if the real story was far more complex and nuanced.

I’m not being horrible here-is that a genuine question?
