iTV ^ | April 14, 2013 | politics

Hundreds of people gathered in the rain at London's Trafalgar Square to mark the death of Baroness Thatcher.

Protesters against the former prime minister's legacy brought sparklers, party poppers and balloons.

Some drank cider and Champagne while others wore party hats as they chanted slogans about Lady Thatcher, who died at The Ritz on Monday.

Maybe I will make that trip to piss on Ted Kennedy’s grave after all.

“protests”

These are not protests

Is there a time when this crowd will get over this stupid hatred? Rhetorical question, of course.

They are only there because they are sheep being led to slaughter. They just don’t realize it; even their organizers don’t realize they are too. They will be on the same trains as the rest of us.

What exactly are they protesting? That they do not live under communism? Tyranny? I don’t think North Korea would turn them away. They might go to prison, but their wish would come true. Amazes me how the cult of liberalism has brainwashed so many.

I wouldn’t get too angry over this, as outrageous as it may seem. Just remember, VOLUMES are written about Margaret Thatcher. What she did for the world and her country was Churchillian. She was a legacy and an inspiration who achieved great feats, with NO handouts or handups. She persevered and fought to succeed, and she did.

After her own party stabbed her in the back, she settled into a tough, but respectful retirement. She kept God close to her heart, and she is in his presence as I type this.

These people? Well, just look at the pictures. These people are not successful. The vast majority are poor, bitter, godless bags of skin filled with garbage. These are people with deep holes in their beings, stuck in a lifetime of impoverishment because of their leech-like nature and inability to achieve anything. No one will remember them. Not a SINGLE one of them. Their children, raised as Britain’s ‘feral youth’ will likely fail to even shed a tear when they die. They’re nothing, having sunk to the lowest level of leftie slime.

Margaret Thatcher was a world leader. A woman who had more guts than ANY man in the UK government at the time. She fixed the country’s economy. She permanently dismantled the coal unions. She DEFEATED an invading nation even when advised against engagement, and though the Argentines may not admit it, she is solely responsible for freeing that nation from an out-of-control gang of murdering thugs. This is a woman who was integral in collapsing the Berlin Wall and the prisoners of tyranny it caged. She stood shoulder to shoulder with the greatest US president in modern history, Ronald Reagan, communism’s arch enemy. She found close kinship with the liberator of Chile, General Augusto Pinochet, a warrior who strangled the Marxist left with his bare hands. Margaret Thatcher, a grocer’s daughter, went on to become a figure larger than life. An unforgettable giant of the last century.

And then, you have these thugs. Who are they? They’re nothing. They never will be anything. Let them party if that’s all the enjoyment they can find in their miserable lives in the council estate ruins of the United Kingdom. But when the party is over, when the cleaners come to sweep the streets, every single one of these ‘protestors’ has to go back to each of their tiny, meaningless existences. Beating their wives. Getting beaten by their husbands. Wasting away nights in front of reality T.V., cheap vodka in hand. Grabbing a McDonalds. Getting robbed in an underpass.

I despise these people, but the more you look at them, the more tragic it all is. The Iron Lady is with God now. I highly doubt any of these people ever will be. A fitting fate for such hollow shells of wasted humanity.

A final salute. Godspeed, Margaret. Your spirit will always be with the brave, and those who never back down. I can only apologize for having mentioned this detritus in the same sentence as you.

Sincerely

An American

Reminds me how Columbia university has a dinner for Ahmadinejad with nary a peep every time he comes in for the UN general assembly. But when someone like Ann Coulter or any other conservative is scheduled to give a speech they riot and scream. It’s just flat out brainwashing, it really is, and we can thank our Universities for that. Just a lot of weak minded fools out there. They don’t bother to study history and instead let someone else fill their minds with absolute BS.

Margaret On The Guillotine

Songwriters: MORRISSEY, STEVEN PATRICK/STREET, STEPHEN BRIAN
1988

The kind people
Have a wonderful dream
Margaret on the guillotine
Cause people like you
Make me feel so tired
When will you die ?
When will you die ?
When will you die ?
When will you die ?
When will you die ?

And people like you
Make me feel so old inside
Please die

And kind people
Do not shelter this dream
Make it real
Make the dream real
Make the dream real
Make it real
Make the dream real
Make it real

I notice that these people are a very small percentage of the population. It’s the press that’s making a big deal of it.

I road in a taxi in London and had a conversation with the driver. He was critical of Thatcher and her methods but conceded at the end of the conversation that the UK was better for her actions. Her reforms made all the difference in lifting the UK out of what we’d call the Carter era “misery indexed” lifestyle.

Yes she made life hard, but her decisions led to years of prosperity and opportunity not previously available. It’s no wonder her and “Ronnie” hit it off.

Thatcher lives rent free in their pea-brains. She taunts them from beyond the grave. Got to think she would enjoy that this scum thinks so low of her. I would want communists hating me too.

You know, I really don't actually mind these "protests" one little bit. On a purely philosophical level, Margaret Thatcher was all for freedom of speech. I dont think she would have been pleased that there were calls for the BBC to "censor" songs that insulted her and even what she believed in.

But on a purely practical level, these "protests" shout out loud and clear just how narrow-minded, hateful, backward-looking, intolerant, loud-mouthed, classless, despicable, aggressive and mean minded the so-called "progressive" left really is. The more they do this kind of thing, the more obvious it becomes to more and more people. And that's absolutely fine by me.

I don’t think many of them know what they are protesting, just following the crowd because they think it’s cool.

That is why Lenin referred to them as "useful idiots".

According to that sterling model of journalism, Reuters, there were TWO hundred people at that “protest”.

Also in the article is this, “ to mark the passing of a leader who was loved and loathed in equal measure.” Oh, really? So if half the nation loathed her, I guess the population of Britain is around 400 people.

Totally agree. These oafs and sots are not only specks compared to Lady Thatcher, but they are also quite uncouth to celebrate the death of the person. Leftists tend to be weird creatures ...imagine their angst if someone did that to one of their heroes. Anyways, Lady Thatcher’s image and memory cannot be soiled by their like. She will forever be remembered as long as their is human civilization, while they are like morning fog that vanishes into the ether or like the croaking of many frogs that turns to whisper quiet with the coming dawn. Rest in peace Lady Thatcher.

Me too.

This week has actually been good for we conservatives, ironically. The hardleft has been so vile, there has been and will be a backlash.

Such an extreme minority don’t forget. And also don’t forget, this is just a sign of how much and how hard she fought these lazy, dirty, left wing scummmers. Many of them weren’t even born!

If anything it is a tribute and a sign that there is still a lot left to do.
