Infinity370: Nutsac_Jim: Infinity370: To all whining rightwingers. You all celebrated when Chavez died, you hypocrites.

Thatcher called America the devil?

She called the protesting miners "the enemy within".


How do protesting miners in another country make Americans hypocrites.

You might as well call right wingers hypocrites for being happy OBL is dead.

When someone calls you the devil, you can pretty much be happy when they die, hypocrisy free.

Thatcher called British coal miners, dockworkers, and steel workers far, far worse things.

Which means you presumably support the UK celebrations?

Working people are useless pieces of shiat, don't you know? Except for him, of course. And that's why he could never join a union, he's a special snowflake who would only be dragged down.


You know who else killed taxi drivers for crossing strikers picket line?

She supported Apartheid in South Africa.

That alone is reason enough for me to not like her.

Really?  Try out your google foo on 'thatcher death party' compared to 'chavez death party' and observe the difference.


Who in the US was directly impacted by Chavez? Who even knew anything about him beyond talking points?


Anyone over 30 in the UK (and then their parents if not them) personally witnessed what Thatcher did to this country, and their lives.


Funnily enough, one of the only things Thatcher did that the majority of the UK agrees with is the Falklands, which the US apparently either doesn't give two craps about or thinks she was wrong.


The only thing "wrong" we thought about the Faulkland's war is that after waging it the UK didn't immediately build two supercarriers.  We followed the war like a football match.  Much comentary was generated and the example of the difficulties the UK encountered in tossing the Argentines off the island was used as justification for 20 years of military spending.  The debate about the US expanding the Navy in the 80s came to a sudden halt when we saw how much trouble the UK had in dealing with the situation.  The check was written and we just finished that fleet expansion in 2009 with the commisioning of the G.H.W. Bush coont7) and little to no opposition to a new class of carriers (Ford class) was ever brought up.  The faulkland's war has had tremendous impact on US Navy planning.
 
2013-04-09 03:48:05 PM  
Labour party leader Ed Miliband acknowledged Thatcher's polarising effect on the British public in a statement which read: 'The Labour Party disagreed with much of what she did and she will always remain a controversial figure. But we can disagree and also greatly respect her political achievements and her personal strength.

'She also defined the politics of the 1980s. David Cameron, Nick Clegg and I all grew up in a politics shaped by Lady Thatcher. We took different paths but with her as the crucial figure of that era.



Well put, and also a good example of a principle I try to live by (although I plan to make an exception and celebrate when Pat Robertson or any of the hateful Phelps clan kicks the bucket...)

justinguarini4ever: Most of the Brits whinging about Thatcher must have forgotten how bad it was in the late 70s. I don't think there is anyone that completely agrees with everything Thatcher did, but the glee over her death is sickening.


Oh I don't know. Decimating entire working class towns' economies and selling off national assets to make already rich people richer at the greater expense and livelihoods of millions.

Yeah, they have no reasons. Yes the economy was bad and needed fixing but her measures only improved the top 5%'s welfare.

Yeah, the Pacific Theatre in WWII had nothing to do with America's interest in the importance of aircraft carriers.

Nelson Mandela was a founding member of Umkhonto we Sizwe. Umkhonto we Sizwe engaged in terroristic activities. Looks like it is possible for reality based entities to both oppose Apartheid and call ANC a terrorist organization. At least for the part of its history where Thatcher would be commenting on their activities.

Because it's a thread about Thatcher?

As they say one man's freedom fighter is another man's terrorist. At the time Thatcher denounced Mandella she helped block international sanctions against the South African government for murdering thousands. If you want to be consistent then both would have been done.

The North
The Disenfranchised Black Youth
The Lost Generation of Young
The Hillsborough families
The men dead in a conflict designed to win her an election
The men traumatised from the Falklands War
For Northern Ireland

For every LGBT kid who committed suicide due to Section 28 in schools
The teachers
The victims of gaybashing which were never investigated due to pressure from her government
For the gay men stitched up and banged up for being gay

For
The women of Greenham Common who were beaten and had their kids forcibly taken into care for no reason
For the men and women assaulted in the Battle of the Beanfield
For the men and women consigned to the scrapheap
For the services that used to belong to all of us and now are badly run in the hands of the rich
For the country that used to stand for social justice and created the National Health Service
The mentally ill thrown out on the streets
The children abused in care homes and ignored or worse abused by some in her government

THAT (and so much more) is WHY !

Moran. The bill was written by republicans, sponsored by republicans, and even if Clinton wouldn't have signed it the goddamn thing would still have been voted into law by republicans. They started the whole mess as a favor to their corporate banking butt buddies, because this is what they wanted.

xria: UNC_Samurai: A Dark Evil Omen: UNC_Samurai: genner: Stay classy liberals.

Somehow I don't think political ideology is the underlying factor with mining towns and other segments of the population that got the business end of her policies, but by all means continue to lay down your partisan trolling hackery.

No, no, anyone who is against conservative policies that rob them personally and is angry at the person who championed them is clearly a liberal socialist lizard person. They can't be just mad about having their pockets picked.

I keep forgetting, it isn't morally reprehensible when businesses keep wages low for profit, only when governments take the money to run the nation.

There is another interesting comparison - if unions strike when the economy is bad to try and protect their members, they get lambasted for it. When businesses sack people and close down offices when the economy is bad to protect their money, that is just natural and should be expected. Interesting how when "capital" hurts the broader economy for their own protection it is okay, but if "labour" does it then it is not.


You are now coloured in my 'like' colour after that comment. Needs repeating.

Infinity370: She supported apartheid and considered Nelson Mandela's ANC a terrorist organisation.
She aided the Khmer Rouge while they were killing millions of Cambodians.
She called General Suharto, mass-murdering dictator of Indonesia "one of our very best and most valuable friends."
She praised and supported Pinochet long after it was known he was responsible for killing hundreds of dissidents.
Her so-called 'poll tax' was hated because it shifted the tax burden from the rich to the poor.
She supported laws which made homosexuality a taboo subject and closed gay and lesbian support centres.

Now watch as rigtwingers whitewash this just as they whitewashed Reagan's legacy.


Wow that was pretty succinct.

She also believed in rich people being better than the poor and in trickle down economics (some really insane farks still do.)

wotthefark: why do most Britons rejoice so..... ?

For
The Miners
The Shipbuilders
The Steelworkers
The Old that Froze to Death
The Old that Couldn't Afford Food
For the Thousands Made Homeless

For
The North
The Disenfranchised Black Youth
The Lost Generation of Young
The Hillsborough families
The men dead in a conflict designed to win her an election
The men traumatised from the Falklands War
For Northern Ireland

For every LGBT kid who committed suicide due to Section 28 in schools
The teachers
The victims of gaybashing which were never investigated due to pressure from her government
For the gay men stitched up and banged up for being gay

For
The women of Greenham Common who were beaten and had their kids forcibly taken into care for no reason
For the men and women assaulted in the Battle of the Beanfield
For the men and women consigned to the scrapheap
For the services that used to belong to all of us and now are badly run in the hands of the rich
For the country that used to stand for social justice and created the National Health Service
The mentally ill thrown out on the streets
The children abused in care homes and ignored or worse abused by some in her government

THAT (and so much more) is WHY !


OK Infinity370's post wasn't as succinct as I thought ... I was trying to not speak ill of the dead, even though she really was an insane for-the-1% biatch.

skullkrusher: Mrtraveler01: Cataholic: Fart_Machine: Cataholic: Hiro-ACiD: Nice win for Nelson Mandela. I imagine he cracked a tallboy and did a little dance.

Amazing that the left has completely whitewashed his reputation.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Umkhonto_we_Sizwe

The ANC was the best of both worlds, communist and terrorist.

We get it.  You're still butthurt about the fall of Apartheid.

Careful, your false dichotomy is showing.

I miss Apartheid too.

Nelson Mandela was a founding member of Umkhonto we Sizwe. Umkhonto we Sizwe engaged in terroristic activities. Looks like it is possible for reality based entities to both oppose Apartheid and call ANC a terrorist organization. At least for the part of its history where Thatcher would be commenting on their activities.


You do realise that there comes a time when "terroistic activites" are called for?

Pretty sure the Germans considered the french resistance terrorists ...
