Queen Elizabeth II, the longest-serving Monarch in the history of Great Britain, passed away this Thursday. This is a somber moment and the royal family needs our prayers. But unfortunately, many on the Left disagree. They see Queen Elizabeth as a symbol of Colonialism and tyranny. Therefore, rather than honoring the deceased Monarch, they are treating her with a disrepute no one deserves, much less someone of such high ranking.

Carnegie Mellon Professor Uju Anya provoked a series of replies when she remarked in a since-deleted tweet:

“I heard the chief monarch of a thieving raping genocidal empire is finally dying. May her pain be excruciating.”

She then replied:

“‘If anyone expects me to express anything but disdain for the monarch who supervised a government that sponsored the genocide that massacred and displaced half my family and the consequences of which those alive today are still trying to overcome, you can keep wishing upon a star.”

When she was predictably attacked for her tweets, she doubled down on her comments:

While she received much backlash, even from Leftists like Jeff Bezos, not everyone felt the same way.

Washington Post reporter Eugene Scott feels now is the time to reflect on the Queen’s legacy of “colonialism”:

University of Michigan Professor Ebony Elizabeth Thomas likewise concurred, stating: “‘Respect the dead’ when we’re all writing these Tweets *in English.* How’d that happen, hm? We just chose this language?”


New York physician Stella Safo felt Uju Anya merited praise for her vile remarks:

All in all, these tweets are sickening to behold. The Left has no culture of life and they treat death as something ultimately cavalier. Conservatives know better. We respect the deceased and honor their memory. It is God’s job to judge the quick and the dead, no ours.
