MSM Covering the Death of a Beloved Queen: Reparations and Racism

Covering the death of a beloved Queen in the liberal media appears to be to demand reparations and constant accusations of White Supremacy. The Mainstream media is ignorant and stupid and oblivious to the history of Queen Elizabeth II herself. They simply parrot back things they hear without bothering to see the real person behind her persona.

“This is somebody who represented White supremacy and colonialism, and as you said, didn’t give reparations, didn’t give up her wealth, didn’t give up her power. She reveled in it. And I’m not sure why I should be sad today, and millions of us in this country have exactly the same feeling as me, I would say.” Birmingham City University professor Kehinde Andrews 

Then move to Albania, ‘I would say.’ The United States is riddled with people who demand reparations to the point that even California is having discussions over making modern folks pay for history. And don’t forget that California was a free state from its inception. But then and now are two separate things.

Yes, the British empire had slaves and practiced colonialism. There was a time in which much of the world was a British possession. We were once a British colony, remember? We threw off the yoke. The historical monarchy had many vicious tyrants that have thankfully passed into time. To equate modern day royals with the historical ones is a fool’s game.

Queen Elizabeth II took the reins of the British Commonwealth in 1952. She presided over the decolonization of the Empire, as country after country gained their independence. But the English Monarchy is mostly a figurehead, a shadow of its former self – and the Prime Minister and Parliament are where the real power lies in these modern times. Attacking the Queen is an ignorant, stupid idea.

“I heard the chief monarch of a thieving raping genocidal empire is finally dying. May her pain be excruciating.” Carnegie Mellon professor Uju Anya in a Tweet deleted by Twitter

As the left continually pushes such obnoxious attacks on the British Queen, they overlooked one thing: the vast majority of the UK loved and honored her. The modern Royal family has had its scandals and embarassments, and Queen Elizabeth II, though upset by it, never changed her outward poise in public. In a season of upheaval, that took some doing.

She is succeeded by her son Charles, who became King Charles III at her passing. Her legacy will not be easily carried on by the new King.
