UPDATE: Angry Leftists Bully Spice Girl Geri Halliwell to Remove Tweet Praising Margaret Thatcher (H/T Newsbusters)
As the youngsters say, “haters gonna hate.” From the UK Daily Mail:
Hundreds took to the streets as macabre ‘Thatcher death parties’ were held late across the country last night, organised by critics of the ‘Iron Lady.’
In Bristol, seven police officers were injured – one seriously – as violence erupted at a street party of 200 people and officers were pelted with bottles, cans and rubbish.
Riot police were deployed in Brixton, south London, as the crowds, which had been drinking since 5pm, started to become more aggressive, while in Liverpool flares and fireworks were set off outside Lime Street Station.

Oh I’m sure that their parents are proud. Obviously the words “pathetic” “disgusting” and “ridiculous” apply. Perhaps these people are just congenitally stupid or brain-damaged. Speaking of which, one of the denizens of the 24/7 televised nuthouse, MS-NBC, Martin Bashir, described her as “Incredibly devisive,” and one who embodied “selfishness.” See for yourself here:
I’m sure some moronic comedian from the 1980’s is a great measure of Lady Thatcher’s legacy. Plus she was mean to those precious “journalists.” Of course she was! She didn’t suffer fools or communists, and most “journalists” are both!
The Great Britain of the 1970’s was a virtual Third World country. She transformed the country into one with a dynamic economy. She rescued her nation from socialism. She worked with Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul to destroy the evil empire, the Soviet Union. As Toby Young points out in the Telegraph UK :
“if it hadn’t been for Thatcher, these same Left-wing gadflies might well be rotting in a Soviet prison camp somewhere east of the Urals. That sounds like an exaggeration, but we shouldn’t forget her contribution to ending the Cold War. Okay, Ronald Reagan and the United States deserve the lion’s share of the credit, but had it not been for the presence of the Iron Lady on the other side of the Atlantic the Berlin Wall might not have come down in 1989.”
Mr. Young’s story also describes the Thatcher funeral parties, and related garbage. It’s worth checking out, as a window in the true hatefulness of the Left, as if you needed a reminder.
These silly little worthless twits celebrating Lady Thatcher’s death don’t have the first clue about any of those accomplishments, and they aren’t even worthy of being mentioned in the same sentence with this great lady and great leader.
Stay classy, my pinko friends!
