Priya Gopal – the Marxist professor claiming Sir Winston Churchill was a “racist” – has previously attacked white people, claiming “white lives don’t matter” and calling for an “abolition” of “whiteness.”
Gopal, 53, moved to the United Kingdom to take advantage of the same free society and education systems she is now attacking.
The daughter of an Indian diplomat, Gopal has lived in Sri Lanka, Austria, and the UK and is now taking aim at her new country’s history.
Cambridge’s Varsity magazine reported:
A panel held last week (11/02) by Churchill College critically discussed Winston Churchill and the legacy of his racial views.
The discussion, entitled ‘The Racial Consequences of Mr Churchill’, brought together four academics for a “critical re-assessment of Churchill’s life and legacy in light of his views on empire and race.” The academics were Professor Priya Gopal – who chaired the discussion – Professor Kehinde Andrews, Dr Madhusree Mukerjee and Dr Onyeka Nubia.
Professor Priya Gopal, a fellow at Churchill College, commented that, in Britain, there is a certain “privileging [of the discourse] of the war against fascism and a silencing around the question of empire.”
But Gopal’s own racist past is well documented.
On June 23rd 2020, Gopal tweeted: “I’ll say it again. White lives don’t matter. As white lives.” She then added: “Abolish whiteness.”
She was rewarded with a robust defense from her employer, Cambridge University, and a cheque from the Daily Mail for £25,000 after they erroneously quoted something else that she didn’t say.
All in a day’s work for an immigrant Marxist academic!
