Guardian article demands removal of Nelson’s column and the reason why is pathetic An opinion piece by the Guardian newspaper has called for the removal of Nelson’s column in London Writer Ms Hirsch labelled Nelson as a ‘white supremacist’, blasted him for not doing enough to condemn slavery and called Britain ‘cultural terrorists’. She wrote that while the reaction in Britain to the Charlottesville incident is “almost entirely condemnatory of neo-Nazis in the US”, the “colonial and pro-slavery titans of British history are still memorialised” in the UK. Ms Hirsch wrote: “We have ‘moved on’ from this era no more than the US has from its slavery and segregationist past. “The difference is that America is now in the midst of frenzied debate on what to do about it, whereas Britain – in our inertia, arrogance and intellectual laziness – is not.” It’s frankly unbelievable that some people want to hide and change history. They cannot comprehend in their narrow minds that different opinions exist and it’s ok to be offended, they cannot stand that. This is what the left has become. They will be the masters of censorship if we let them get their way. The article did not go down too well on Twitter. Nigel Farage blasted the article saying: Follow Nigel Farage ✔@Nigel_Farage Shocking that The Guardian are encouraging this. The left really do hate Britain. https://twitter.com/guardianopinion/status/899859964138737666 … 10:22 AM – Aug 22, 2017 “Shocked that the guardian are encouraging this.
