    How about the Hitler scholarship or Adolf Hitler award for commitment to animal welfare? Hitler introduced animal welfare laws, and a lot of people were racist and were doing genocide type shenanigans back in the day, so I think they should keep giving out those little Hitler statuettes.
    Comparing Rhodes to Hitler. Lmao

    If he was a real person it is most likely he was a cold reader, charlatan and trickster and he was prone to bouts of physical violence against people going about their lawful business.

    Rhodes was a great man, and those demanding the destruction of his statues and the desecration of his life's work deserve little more than to be shot. Those looking for grievances should look towards the continued assaults of that monstrous surf of political correctness against the great rock of pride and self-respect that a country like our does and should rightfully possess.

    My point was more against the people saying 'we shouldn't change history/ things were different back then/everyone's tainted/the fund does good regardless'. There's a certain limit of acceptability and people aren't necessarily being consistent. Many of the same people in favour of retaining the Rhodes statues for those reasons wouldn't be in favour of letting Hitler statues stand outside German vets or animal charity offices, even though he did introduce some of Germany's first animal welfare laws. If there existed a 'Hitler fund for pretty cool alsatians' I think some people might just want the name changed.

    Some sense in a sea of sanity. Rhodes should be a national figure for British men to look up to. However, too many British men are feminine cowards who suck up to anything that tries to ridicule British history.
