UK Telegraph: We’ve closed comments on all Thatcher stories due to vitriolic abuse

posted at 5:44 pm on April 8, 2013 by

One of the paper’s lefties practically begged his fellow travelers to behave themselves today.  No sale, apparently:

If you can stomach it, check out Twitchy’s running account of the Left’s appalling behavior — including full-blown street celebrations, replete with such charming chants as, “Maggie, Maggie, Maggie!  Dead! Dead! Dead!”

Was it any better here with Reagan’s death?

including full-blown street celebrations….

I’ll say it. I can think of certain leaders who’s passing I’d feel anything but sad.

Britanistan is a socialist toilet soon to be, irreparably, a Muslim toilet. There is no coming back without spilling blood.

Stay classy

Was reading some posts about W….the idiot libs claim they’ll be dancing in the streets when he passes… I’m sure CNN and msdnc will show them ad nauseum

cmsinaz on April 8, 2013 at 6:11 PM

Screw Britain. They’ll be getting what they deserve soon enough — and by their own blind and reckless policies.

Rational Thought on April 8, 2013 at 6:17 PM

The left is unhinged. Look at how vile they were about Rick Warren’s son passing.

Someone posted this quote of the great Iron Lady on my facebook – it’s so true

“I always cheer up immensely if an attack is particularly wounding because I think, well, if they attack one personally, it means they have not a single political argument left.”

unfortunately Britianstan has nukes and missles and they are very close to us.

deimos on April 8, 2013 at 6:57 PM

The best was Donna Brazile’s asinine question about Thatcher’s legacy for women. Gee, I don’t know Donna, why don’t we ask the millions of women freed from the grip of communism if she left a legacy that they will remember? I’m sure she would have made time for a “free condoms” crusade if she weren’t so busy helping tear down the Berlin Wall. Moron.

They delete the comments after a week which is BS since they comments are of more value than the articles.

Blake on April 8, 2013 at 7:01 PM

Any time I weaken and start t think that liberals are just normal people who have differing opinions about many things than I do – I read some of the vile disgusting filth many of them post on Twitter. They show themselves to be without basic human decency.

No HotGas mention of Palin’s article?

Don’t have to. We’ve seen liberal leftists act like trash after conservatives like Tony Snow and Andrew Breitbart, amongst many others. Absolutely disgraceful.

JetBoy on April 8, 2013 at 8:04 PM

Ah yes,more examples of tolerance and compassion from the left. Obviously it’s their greatest virtues.

morbius on April 8, 2013 at 8:39 PM

Sickening. Children need to be spanked.

John the Libertarian on April 8, 2013 at 9:00 PM

This why we’re going to need The Great Divorce. We’ll either have to live separately from these people or live under them.

Under is not acceptable.

trigon on April 8, 2013 at 9:08 PM

When your enemies celebrate your passing, you know you’ve done something right. (But it is truly disturbing that there are so many depraved individuals running loose out there these days.)

May we follow her example and live lives that absolutely infuriate the evil and the foolish.

butterflies and puppies on April 8, 2013 at 9:15 PM

Ah, the students of revisionist history. It must be terrible being so utterly ignorant.

trigon on April 8, 2013 at 9:08 PM

Nope. Over. They choose to wallow in hatred. We (mostly) rise above that.

thebrokenrattle on April 8, 2013 at 9:55 PM

We are at war. Cold war so far, but war. Face it.

petefrt on April 8, 2013 at 10:18 PM

Agree. I want a peaceful divorce, but the left would never let it happen. They seek to rule us.

crrr6 on April 8, 2013 at 10:40 PM

Margaret Thatcher was a great lady and a loyal conservative, but we have learned that liberals/progressives are nasty mean spirited people no matter what country they come from. Our own MSM coverage of her when she was alive is a perfect example of liberal/progressive thinking.

savage24 on April 8, 2013 at 11:00 PM

I’m not going to lie: it’s really hard for me to watch guys like Obama fundamentally transform us into a third world country, read their remarks about Lady Thatcher and not wish the same upon them.

Nice article. Thanks for the link.

deimos on April 8, 2013 at 6:57 PM

Said nukes can be parked 100 miles off the coast, and thanks to both British sub tech and the post-Cold War collapse of USN ASW capability, the first we’ll know about it is when the couple hundred warheads the Tridents we gave them explode on American cities.

Steve Eggleston on April 8, 2013 at 11:51 PM

In 1996, Pat Buchanan declared that there would be a culture war. Little did I know how prophetic he was or that it would engulf the entire western world. The left today is a bunch of uneducated spoiled brats who live off their parents or government and want to have everything without working for it. They are undisciplined and vile. We have lost at least one generation because we have not had the courage to stand up to the power hungry leftist elites who rewrite history and ferment ignorance.
Sarah Palin, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Rick Santorum…these are just a few of the people who must stand up and lead now. We can’t afford to lose any more of our children to this secular hate filled decadence and vitriol. God have mercy on us and send us a Ronald Reagan or Margaret Thatcher.

Meh. This is to be expected.

File the screenshots away for the next time we tapdance on the grave of a leftwing tyrant and the left whines that we’re sooooo cruel.

Good Lt on April 9, 2013 at 9:04 AM

Sarah Palin, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Rick Santorum

Palin – no thanks
Ben Carson – run for office
Ted Cruz – keep fighting
Rick Santorum – no thanks

Good Lt on April 9, 2013 at 9:11 AM

It’s interesting that this has become more about hypocritical leftist hatred than about Maggie’s death.

CrustyB on April 9, 2013 at 10:31 AM

Palin – no thanks

Ted Cruz – keep fighting
Rick Santorum – no thanks

Good Lt on April 9, 2013 at 9:11 AM

People like you are a part of the problem. I said they need to stand up and lead. I didn’t say they needed to pursue any political office. Each one of these people understands that we are in a culture war that only the left is engaged in. They stand up and speak out for social conservative issues regardless of the criticism. Maybe people like you should stop throwing the few who have the courage of their convictions under the bus. Notice that the left, who is winning, never does this?

Blake on April 8, 2013 at 7:01 PM

They delete mine on posting. Gene, one of their American admins hates my guts. Before knowing who he was, I dropped his pants around his ankles clipping off his buttons with a Rapier tip of truth once too often. They don’t do truth among socialists.

BL@KBIRD on April 9, 2013 at 11:17 AM

Ah, the tolerant Left.
