Churchill tortured Obama's grandfather.   Share:  
Thrust of argument: Michael Dickinson writes 'Suspected Mau Mau insurgents were subject to electric shock, whippings, burning and mutilation in order to crush the local drive for independence. Obama's grandfather was imprisoned without trial for two years and tortured for resisting Churchill's empire. He never truly recovered from the ordeal.' Direction of resistance / implied resistance: He explains 'Hussein Onyango Obama, was one of 150,000 rebellious Kikuyu 'blackamoors' forced into detention camps during Churchill's postwar premiership, when the British governnment began its brutal campaign to suppress the alleged 'Mau Mau' uprising in Kenya, in order to protect the privileges of the white settler population at the expense of the indigenous people. About 11,000 Kenyans were killed and 81,000 detained during the British government's campaign to protect its imperialist heritage.'

Removal of resistance: This is the legacy of people like Winston Churchill. Unification: Why the **** is he on our money? FFS. Such cognitive dissonance. Such lack of civilisation.
