Churchill Movie Comes with Health Warning

Churchill Movie Comes with Health Warning

The moonbattery is everywhere — even in a movie about the ultimate countermoonbat, Winston Churchill. Churchill’s ever-present cigars were iconic…

Yet the makers of a new biopic of the wartime leader have still deemed it necessary to warn film-goers that ‘the depictions of tobacco smoking are based solely on artistic consideration’.

The ludicrous health alert comes in the final credits of Darkest Hour, in which Gary Oldman has been acclaimed by critics for his performance as the former Prime Minister.

Actually, the depictions of tobacco smoking are more likely to be based on historical rather than artistic consideration. Churchill, who lived to be 90, habitually smoked cigars.

However, cigar smoking having been determined to be politically incorrect, history is undergoing revision, so that Churchill no longer smoked cigars. Refer to the photographic evidence. Stalin’s regime used similar techniques.

When cigars have been completely removed from Churchill’s life, they will have to do a remake of Darkest Hour, reflecting the new historical fact that he didn’t smoke.
