Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher is recovering in the hospital after having surgery to remove a bladder growth. Many Twitterers are wishing her well:

Shameful and disgusting.

Indeed. We’re praying for a full and speedy recovery. God bless the Iron Lady.

    So nice to know that America isn’t the only nation that’s right on the edge of moral bankruptcy.

      Actually, the Brits are right there with us, and leading the way in some areas….

    Another example of COEXIST but only if you agree. Pathetic.

    Given the level of frustration in those messages, I now hope The Iron Lady makes AT LEAST 110! (Years, that is…)

    Mrs Thatcher, we salute you!

    These people are hateful little maggots

  • almarquardt

    It’s because of her and Ronald Reagan that we won the Cold War and need not fear nuclear holocaust.

    I’ll never forget how she defied doctor’s orders to attend Ronald Reagan’s funeral, and even forced herself on the plane carrying the Reagan family back to Ron’s final resting place.

    Iron Lady is the perfect description for her. Not only has she earned my total respect, but we could use more people like her.

      Here is some Thatcher awesomeness:

      It’s also interesting to see how the left haven’t changed much in 20 years

      • almarquardt

        Awesome indeed. Thanks for sharing!

  • ozconservative

    Will someone please tell me why I should be respectful when someone on the left dies

    • Blake Waymire

      Usually, I’d say it’s because we’re better than that on the right, but I’m starting to think it’s time to start fighting those morons the same way they fight us.

    • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

      Because we are better than they are and recognise the value of human life, even if it is just some halfwit anti-American.

  • salvagesalvage

    It’s so cute the way that you guys ignore Thatcher’s chumming with Pinochet. Obama spent a few hours in a guy’s living room AND HE’S A TERRORIST! Thatcher gives material support to an actual tyrant AND SHE’S A HERO!

    See it’s these sort of inconsistencies that make you less conservative and more wingnuts.

    • http://granitegrok.com/author/mike Mike Rogers

      Practical diplomacy. Pinochet wasn’t a nice guy, but he rescued his country from communism and raised living standards for most people, then handed over peacefully to a civilian government.
      Compare with Obama’s support of Muslim dictators.

      • salvagesalvage

        Wasn’t a “nice guy”:

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

        Wingnuts! Where ignorance and glib walk hand in hand through an empty mind.

        • http://granitegrok.com/author/mike Mike Rogers

          Compare the millions of deaths under any kind of Socialism, National, or any other kind, with the depredations of Pinochet, as he
          suppressed communism a little too brutally, and you are in a whole different league.

          The problems of Latin America in the late 20th century can partially be traced to the fugitive Nazis and Fascisti who settled there. It is no coincidence that for many years, some of the most active routes of the LuftWaffe (sorry, LuftHansa) were to Brazil, Peru, Argentina, and Chile.
          Communists and leftists would say that you have to break a few eggs
          to make the mythical socialist omelette (which has NEVER been achieved), considering the deaths of millions of bourgeois in the process, unfortunate but necessary. But let a strongman of the right hunt down the communists which have been a pox on his people, and he is the very devil.

          Again, look at the people that Obama cozies up to – constitution busting would be dictators, Islamic tyrants, socialist leaders for life, and tell me he isn’t far, far, worse. (You will, of course, but you’re wrong)

          Have I driven you crazy yet?

        • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

          Oh please, tell us about the Red Paradise Allende would have built. Tell us about the kindhearted Che`, who executed thousands for no reason except his cruelty — no, he never pulled the trigger on anyone personally, he was too much a coward. His last recorded words? “Don’t shoot! I’m Che! I’m worth more alive than dead!”

          Ffkk all you leftards. And especially ffkk Sal Allende.

          MERRY CHRISTMAS–GOD LOVES YOU

          • salvagesalvage

            Nah, no such things as gods, they’re stories made up by primitive cultures to explain and give the illusion of control over natural phenomenon. But hey, that’s just facts and logic, you being wingnut won’t get it, I understand.

    • ozconservative

      And Roosevelt and Churchill had an alliance with Stalin to fight Hitler. Sometimes you have to make alliances with people you don’t like in order to protect the world from someone even worse.

      • salvagesalvage

        So Pinochet was massacring families of Hitlers was he? You understand that right? He made men, women and children “disappear” for just being in the same villages of people who might have been commies.

        And the point you’re missing is that Thatcher was Pinochet’s pal!

        • ozconservative

          No-one is saying the guy wasn’t a brutal dictator. It’s just that the reason for the friendship was, aside from the mutual enemy of communism, the support Pinochet gave Britain during the Falklands war.

        • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

          God Bless Pinochet. Would to God he had gone to to eradicate every living Commie in the hemisphere, including Goatpounder Castro.

          And Franklin Roosevelt was Josef Stalin’s pal. Ask 20 million Ukrainians about Stalin. Oh wait, you can’t. He killed them.

          • http://granitegrok.com/author/mike Mike Rogers

            Now you’re talking!

      Viva Pinochet! Merde a Allende!

      • http://granitegrok.com/author/mike Mike Rogers

        Anybody have the stats on government caused deaths under Allende?

    • lana ward

      Omuslim is a terrorist and a traitor, and a murderer, and a queer. Great qualities for a “president”

      • salvagesalvage

        Yes! This is some excellent wingnuttery right here, please be sure to tell everyone about it!

  • http://granitegrok.com/author/mike Mike Rogers

    Let us compare for a moment.
    Conservatives hated everything Ted Kennedy stood for, but wished only the best outcome for him and his family when he became ill.
    Lefties and union thugs still hate Maggie Thatcher, but it’s personal. And yes, you can hear the union voices and thug attitudes in those vile tweets.

  • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

    Oh, I’m SURE they’re only being metaphoric and ironic and us dimwit Teebaggerz just don’t understand their sly, subtle humor.

    Well, here’s some sly subtle humor for all you lefties: EAT A GLOCK!

  • Ronald

    Agree or disagree with Thatcher’s policies, fine. But it’s plain wrong to wish someone dead. I hope she recovers well!
