Skip to comments.Mark Steyn: Thatcher thought Britain was worth fighting for
Posted on 04/12/2013 1:48:39 PM PDT by neverdem
A few hours after Margaret Thatchers death on Monday, the snarling deadbeats of the British underclass were gleefully rampaging through the streets of Brixton in South London, scaling the marquee of the local fleapit and hanging a banner announcing, THE BITCH IS DEAD. Amazingly, they managed to spell all four words correctly. By Friday, Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead, from The Wizard of Oz, was the No. 1 download at Amazon U.K...
A generation on, the Thatcher era seems more and more like a magnificent but temporary interlude in a great nations bizarre, remorseless self-dissolution. She was right and they were wrong, and because of that they will never forgive her...

Great article. But you know that.
Thanks for posting it.
Margaret Thatcher was a gift to England. The thankless, shiftless, and hopelessly stupid will never fully understand why because the truth, and the specifics are above the capability of their understanding.
We have the same types here in America. They are called Obama Voters.
Now the Muslims are in charge, coming to America/already here with a president (alleged) who hates the military and America.
OK, so she was wrong about ONE thing.
You want to understand the twisted hatred for Thatcher ?
There really is no understanding other than jumping on board with a sense of popularism that gives you cover.
If you watch you will see the hatred in his words and his face.
Just so there is no mistake, this song is all about Margaret Thatcher.
Not worth fighting for any more. Guns illegal. Religion of peace raping light-skinned girls. Socialism taken over all aspects of life.
Some of us beg to differ.
Why do we love to import ideas from Europe?

Karl Marx had seen it in London, so had George Orwell. The feral mob; Marx called them the Lumpen Proletariat. How to control them? The modern society controlled by the high mucky mucks in England knows how. Feed them with all the junk food they want. Let them swill beer. Eventually their outrage and realization as to what they are and where they are going to end up, could bode ill for society. Simply create a "hate figure". Channel their violence.
Orwell called it in his book 1984. The hate week allowed the mob to scream hate for a mythical figure- one "Goldstein".
