The Caliph grins at suicidal British political correctness

The Daily Telegraph sheds light on the new phenomenon of British sanctimony: “If Nelson Mandela could tolerate Cecil Rhodes, why cannot the students of Oxford?”. Cecil Rhodes is the man who conquered southern Africa for England, and whose accomplishments were honored in the name Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). Around that name the British academia has now fallen prey to hysteria.

“Rhodes Must Fall” cry the students and professors outside Oxford, many of whom are themselves part of the Rhodes Scholarship group, the program built by the “racist” tycoon to allow foreign students to study at Oxford.

    ” …conquered southern Africa for England” ?
    Britain took the Cape Colony from the Dutch during the Napoleonic Wars.
    Rhodes was instrumental in late 19th century expansion of British interests in the interior.
