DEMOCRATS ARE BLOCKING RESOLUTION TO HONOR LADY THATCHER

Katherine Rosario

April 11, 2013

One would naturally think it impossible that anyone would hesitate – even for an instant – to honor the woman who tackled communism head on as prime minister of Great Britain. Lady Margaret Thatcher was a principled politician who helped to foster the special relationship between Great Britain and the United States that we all benefit from today.

A Senate resolution to honor Lady Thatcher was supposed to pass last night. However, per well placed sources on the Hill, Democrats have a hold on the resolution.

To refuse to honor a woman of such great historical and political significance, who was deeply loyal to the United States, is petty and shameful. One truly has to wonder, what is it about Lady Thatcher that gives them pause? Her unfaltering commitment to freedom? Or perhaps the way she fought for individual liberty and limited government?

The House used traditional bereavement procedures, the same model they used for John F. Kennedy. It’s a simple, solemn means of honoring the individual by passing a resolution and immediately adjourning. Similarly, Great Britain’s House of Commons was recalled, bringing members of Parliament back from vacation to honor Lady Thatcher.

Those actions were a fitting response to the death of one of the world’s greatest post-World War II leaders.

“One would naturally think it impossible that anyone would hesitate – even for an instant – to honor the woman who tackled communism head on as prime minister of Great Britain.”

There’s your answer, right there.

America’s communists hate Thatcher precisely because she stood in the way of World Communism.

Makes sense that communists would resent a woman who defeated Soviet communism, doesn’t it?

Maybe the Dems would vote for it if Lady Thatcher had lied about being 1/32 Cherokee.

Lady Thatcher was a great Lady that fought socialism and communism.

This shows just where these RATS stand and it’s not with a Constitutional Republic.

There is such an oppressive evil prevailing in our land. I can actually “feel” it...

Thatcher delayed the rise of communism for 30 years. Due to circumstances she could never have imagined, the most powerful country in the world is now going over to the dark side, but she did all that could be asked to preserve, protect, and defend freedom.

This should surprise no-one. Don’t forget who sent back the Churchill bust.

This leaves me sputtering with rage.

My theory is that the dimbocraps hate her because she had way bigger balls than they do.

Bears repeating:

America’s communists hate Thatcher precisely because she stood in the way of World Communism.

This should also put to bed any and all questions about whether or not the Democrat Party is really the US Communist Party.

If people now still cannot see that our government has been infiltrated with men and women of communist ideology, then they have their heads up their respective arses so far that there is no sense in even reasoning with them rationally.

Nothing surprises me anymore.

I have lost respect for the Dems/socialists a long, long time ago.
