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.


OK fark tools, you have me commenting on my own damn post!

MyRandomName: Esc7: Again, apparently I'm the libbiest lib in the world for not adoring Margret Thatcher.

I may respect her for being England's first woman prime minister, and having the resolve to more or less successfully win the Falkland's War.  But her economic philosophy is not popular with me and her actions implementing it were horrid.

But since I'm not falling over myself lionizing her I'm a lib and all libs are classless.

You ever stop and wonder WHY people hate her?  WHY so many people don't like her or other conservative policies?

It's so unfair!  We hate things that harm us!  We should be so much more respectful of those that spit in our faces, take our money for the rich, tell us we're going to hell, question our patriotism and make our lives worse!

Are you intentionally ignoring the economic state of britain prior to her election when talking down her economic views? She improved that country economically.

Absolutely. For precedence, see the "if you disagree with a black president then you hate black people" common-law that went into effect in 2008. Since it is illegal to discriminate, the law applies to all minorities, including women.

brantgoose: lordaction: More proof on how intolerant and sexist the leftists really are.

Because criticism of one woman means you hate them all? What are you? A FeminaziTM?

You can sure pack a lot of logical fallacies in one little sentence.

Unpacking, it basically says:

All leftists are intolerant and sexist.

I doubt if you could say that of Nazis or bigoted right-wing nuns, let alone liberals. They may be rare, but some Nazis were feminists, and some bigoted right-wing nuns are feminists of a sort as well.

An additional bonus fallacy of special pleading is committed if you ignore how many conservatives are intolerant and sexist. It is beyond the shadow of a reasonable doubt, a larger percentage of conservatives than liberals. Liberals are supposed to be tolerant and non-sexist. No doubt some fail but conservatives hold inherently intolerant and distrustful views of humanity, let alone women. It's tradition. It's also inherent in the conservative ideology (insofar as the various groups of people who shelter under that label have anything in common).

Take Hilary Clinton ... please! (rimshot)

Speaking for myself, as a dyed in the wool, registered Thatcher-Hater, there are plenty of women, even obnoxious women, whose qualities I respect.

Laura Bush is charming even if she married George Bush, but Ma Bush is a battleax in any political camp.

Hilary Clinton is abrasive and annoying, but she has some admirable qualities and thus even Republicans might occasionally respect her authoritah. Olympia Snow does not raise my ire whether she is a liberal or conservative, and she has voted as both. Although a Conservative and Texan, you can't help liking the late maverick Governor Ann Richards, even though it was not she who came up with the quip about George H.W. Bush Sr. being born with a silver foot in his mouth (she admitted she was quoting someone else).

gibbon1: Private_Citizen: Pretty much this. She was a rich, rich woman who had all the sympathy for poor people that a butcher has for cattle. Had oil revenue from the North Sea not started pouring into the coffers, her legacy would be a warning about the dangers of austerity and regulation busting - but the extra cash hid the real cost of her policies.

Well not to mention sucking about a thousand quid per capita out of Scotland.  Lady had nothing remotely resembling morals.


She did try to end Sunday trading laws though, and was pro-choice and (for the time) pro-gay rights.

"Margaret Thatcher was a pioneer, willingly or unwillingly, for the role of women in politics. It is hard to imagine a part of our current history that has not been affected by measures she put forward in the UK at the end of the 20th century. Her hard-nosed fiscal measures took a toll on the poor, and her hands-off approach to financial regulation led to great wealth for others. There is an argument that her steadfast, almost emotional loyalty to the pound sterling has helped the UK weather the storms of European monetary uncertainty.

But to me she was a figure of awe for her personal strength and grit. To have come up, legitimately, through the ranks of the British political system, class bound and gender phobic as it was, in the time that she did and the way that she did, was a formidable achievement. To have won it, not because she inherited position as the daughter of a great man, or the widow of an important man, but by dint of her own striving. To have withstood the special hatred and ridicule, unprecedented in my opinion, leveled in our time at a public figure who was not a mass murderer; and to have managed to keep her convictions attached to fervent ideals and ideas-wrongheaded or misguided as we might see them now-without corruption-I see that as evidence of some kind of greatness, worthy for the argument of history to settle."

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.
