‘Sad sick f*cks’: Simon Le Bon condemns dancing on Lady Thatcher’s grave

Several days after Margaret Thatcher’s death, depraved revelers are still gleefully dancing on her grave. Fortunately, not everyone who disagreed with the Iron Lady’s politics has forgotten the meaning of respect.

“Ding Dong the Witch is Dead”  is currently holding steady near the top of the UK iTunes chart. Simon Le Bon, lead singer for Duran Duran, doesn’t think it’s anything to sing about:

Le Bon isn’t arguing against free speech or suggesting that people should be silenced:

He’s pointing out that those celebrating the song’s sudden popularity are ultimately only disgracing themselves.

Incidentally, the Sex Pistols’ John Lydon, who sang “God Save The Queen,” has called the celebrations of Thatcher’s death “loathsome.”

Encouraging to see that chivalry still exists.

    Good for him.

    This seems like Occupy Wall Street mentality. People who have nothing better to do. People who have no comprehension of how the world actually works. I am sure none of them actually know much about Thatcher, her policies and the results. They just don’t care.

    I hate to say it, but I can see this happening here when George W. Bush dies. And it will be absolutely appalling.

      We’ll probably get a sneak preview when his father passes away.

    • tdpwells

      I think it’ll be far worse when W dies. The British left can be horrid, but it’s mere child’s play compared to the American left.

      • kate_middleton

        Sadly, you’re probably right.

        I hope he lives a long time, and perhaps by then some of these idiots will have grown up a bit and figured out that things weren’t that bad under him. Things are bad now.

    Funerals are for the family Turning one’s back is a silly, futile gesture. I think we can safely assume the Iron Lady won’t notice. lol

      Maybe those NUTS from Westboro Baptist and Code Pink will show up, and make Arses of themselves… Again… Jawamax 8<{D}

        The Westboro people are BANNED to entering the UK… Wish we could do that!!

        Fred Phelps is banned from entering the UK….Wish we could kick him out of here!!

  • Lalala

    I look at what’s going on over in England and just smh. I’m coming more and more to the conclusion that the Britons are some of the rudest, disrespectful, meanspirited people on the planet. Their parents didn’t teach ’em right.

      Not alot of true Brits live there anymore. And many who do could teach our welfare queens a thing or two.

      Not to be picky but this has really nothing to do with the British. It is a mentality that is shared by billions of people around the world regardless of nationality – a grievance mentality in which envy of others and a demand for equality is the overarching ethos.

  • pajamakat

    He’ll get tons of hate tweets, death threats and emails. I only hope he doesn’t start apologizing if he “offended” anyone with his views.

  • Garth Haycock

    I’ve always been a huge fan of Duran Duran. Now, my respect for LeBon the person has increased exponentially.

    • obathos

      I agree. Thank you, Simon Le Bon.

  • Sparafucile

    Strangely enough, the sick twisted fucks chanting “DDTWID” are mostly too young to have lived a single day with Maggie as PM. And they probably don’t know anything about Simon le Bon, either.

    • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

      Exactly, it is just anti-conservative groupthink. You ask any of them why they hate her they will bring up some situation they didn’t understand without knowing any details about it whatsoever like the Falklands War or the union busting she did that loosened the stranglehold the unions had on their natural resources.

    • Miss Clairee

      I knew I had a crush on Simon when I was in high school for a reason! Seems like a pretty classy guy! Now where’s Adam Ant?

      • mdtljt

            “The Look of Love”! One of my faves! Echo and the Bunnymen! The English Beat! The Clash, Kate Bush, The Fixx! What a great time in music.

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      Duran Duran was a “boy band” of my time, mid-80’s, before there were”boy bands”. Simon was my favorite… And while I don’t really remember too much of Lady Thatcher, I do remember Simon, lol.

      • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

      They don’t understand what it really means to be anti-establishment. Clue: the dead are not the establishment. Johnny Rotten and Simon Le Bon had such an influence on pop culture, because they had class. People respect cool.

  • http://www.vatican.va/ Rulz

    Well, what do you expect from the Western left?

    The American left celebrated when Ann Coulter’s father died.

  • http://twitter.com/jimni27 Jimni27

    Ironically Johnny Rotten from the Sex Pistols ( who sang “God Save The Queen” that LeBon is talking about in his tweet) has also spoken out against the celebrating of Thatcher’s death. I thought that was pretty cool.

    • yacope

      This shows that you can disagree with someone and not be a conceited liberal douche bag. I have always had a crush on Simon and now I know he really is one of the good ones. I hope he sticks by his tweets.

  • LegalizeShemp

    Yes and you never anything like “wow, this inappropriate behavior will really hurt the Left in the next election”, from the media, like you hear when a right winger does something dumb. Nope, it’s not only encouraged, it’s celebrated by the depraved, immoral left, because anything that furthers the left wing agenda is good, anything that exposes the deceit and fraud of the left wing agenda is bad.

    I’m from argentina….and a DD fan. So what she did is in the past. No soldier will forget her here or in UK Dancing on her grave is a prove of NO BRAIN AT ALL, why don’t they do something against her when she was alive OR in the Minister?? Some idiots brainless do THIS kind of coward things!! She is dead now THAT WILL NOT repair the damage done!! SO SHUT THE F*** UP!!

  • tdpwells

    Still rockin’ Duran Duran on my iPod, I’ll admit.

    • yacope

      Always :)

  • yacope

    Simon is still my favorite lead singer, I’m glad he’s a good guy even though he is a liberal…and he still looks good 😉

  • Uncle Paul Hahrrgis

    I’m a Ron Paul style Libertarian myself and didn’t see eye to eye with the British conservative party on many accounts, but as non-interventionist as I am vis a vis foreign policy, I can’t fault Maggie for Argentina, or the IRA. The eurosocialists are reaching in their unfounded and often vile criticisms, misrepresenting and omitting history in the process.

    Argentina, in the early 80s, was ruled by a corrupt, bellicose and illegitimate military junta which attempted to consolidate power by annexing the Falklands, — it and it alone initiated force — it was the aggressor, it fired the first shot. The British inhabitants of the Falklands do not identify with Argentina in any regard, they’ve voted overwhelmingly to remain under British sovereignty and the neo-Peronists in Argentina’s Kirchner administration, as well as their sycophantic third world supporters, display a complete disregard for democracy when they continue to contest Falklands sovereignty as they have. As far as the sinking of the Belgrano goes, even its captain has voiced his opinion that the Belgrano was fair game, and in 1994, a report commissioned by the Argentine ministry of defense found its sinking was a legitimate act of war.

    In addition, to claim the IRA are “freedom fighters” is just absurd. Its well documented that the IRA actively collaborated with nazi agents and saboteurs before and during WWII in an attempt to facilitate nazi subjugation of the British isles, in hopes German occupation would result in a united Ireland. And as in the case of the Falklands, the IRA’s apologists show a complete disregard for democracy when voicing their ludicrous arguments, as the people of Northern Ireland have voted several times to remain British, in fact over 98% of respondents favored remaining a part of the UK in the 1973 North Irish referendum.

      “Argentina, in the early 80s, was ruled by a corrupt, bellicose and
      illegitimate military junta which attempted to consolidate power by
      annexing the Falklands,…”
      So totally different from today, eh Paul? 😉
      Otherwise, spot on!

      Whether you agreed with Margaret Thatcher is beside the point — this idiocy is not a legitimate or even decent response to her death. I don’t recall dancing in the street when Teddy Kennedy died, for instance, and I don’t plan to do it when Jimmy Carter eventually passes, either.

      • Uncle Paul Hahrrgis

        That was kind’ve the engine to my comment, just because you don’t agree with a political leader doesn’t entitle you to act like an uncouth moron; that being said I did drink to Chavez’s demise, but then he wasn’t a legitimate leader commanding of respect.

    A lack of respect from the steaming masses? All-too-believable.

  • DrSamHerman

    Most of the fecal matter expressing joy at Maggie’s death are rejected leftist Union garbage, idiot teenagers and twenty-somethings who never lived a day under Maggie’s term as Prime Minister and were indoctrinated with the usual Bridiot socialist claptrap by unionized teachers or burned-out, useless has-beens hypocrites who profited mightily by being anti-Thatcher during her term in the counterculture of the 1980s.
