Snotty remarks like that are the last refuge of mewling, petulant cowards.

When they can't make a rational argument on facts they lower themselves - where they seem to spend most of their time.

President-Mom-Jeans said...

What a miserable piece of shit Galloway is. Anti semetic, rabid communist, no surprises that the fat motherfucker is pleased with the Iron Lady's passing.

He probably wants to let the poor Faulklanders be enslaved by that twat Kirchner and the Argentines.

Hopefully this rotten waste of carbon shakes loose the mortal coil soon.

Shouting Thomas said...

Oh, hell, I got quite a few posts on FB reveling in the death by suicide of Rick Warren's son.

It appears that this was the wrath of God, visited upon the apostates who will not salute gay marriage.

If Mrs T were to restored to life and health at her prime and odious George and his minions were to suddenly shuffle off to the next world Brittain would far better of in the trade.

Sorun said...

Completely expected.

Mitchell the Bat said...

Elvis Costello would perform "God's Comic" and sing the line "and wondering if I should have given the world to the monkeys" and then launch straight into "Last Train to Clarksville."

Pretty cool.

"Tramp the Dirt Down" would have been the most preposterously maudlin track were it not for "Any King's Shilling."

edutcher said...

What Shout said.

No class, no worth as human beings, nothing.

The "tolerant", "compassionate" Lefties show what they're really made of.

Thank God (and Tim Berners-Lee) for the Internet, so we have a record of this.

And thank Heaven for Twitter which, unlike comment boards on some blogs, don't get scrubbed or shut down when it's politically embarrassing.

chickelit said...

To my credit, I never fell for Costello's shtick.

Thatcher was brave and admirable. Her spirit is immortal. May she R.I.P.

You'll notice this sort of behavior is typical.

YoungHegelian said...

If Lady Thatcher had accomplished nothing else in her life, pissing off George "The day the Soviet Union fell was the saddest day of my life" Galloway would ensure her a high ranking in my book.

MadisonMan said...

Shouldn't it be Tamp the Dirt Down?

I mean, it's horrible thought in this context, but at least get the grammar correct.

There's zero chance this is a typo rather than the juvenile insult. The left hates her.

traditionalguy said...

Thatcher was the perfect bourgeoisie in Galloway's eyes. And she beat him.

Maggie Thatcher was for the middle class prosperity. That was a tough act surrounded by Monarchists and Marxists.

Obama is our Galloway today...boy does he hate us bourgeoisie Americans clinging to our 401k's. And as Thatcher did, we will prevail.

Chip Ahoy said...

He must have been thinking "trample."

Darrell said...

He want to walk all over her grace--tramping or trampling. Tamp would be with a shovel.

Tyrone Slothrop said...

Christopher Hitchens earned my everlasting love and respect when he dismantled Galloway in debate. Galloway is an intellectual soccer hooligan, smashing windows 'cause it's fun.

Darrell said...

Galloway is safe because the cost of bullets rose.

Thatcher's effect on history is secured, Galloway won't even merit a footnote.

Surpised there isn't more vitriol from the left on this. But, the day is young. Lets wait and see what the democrat lefties have to say. Joe Biden is warning up in the batter's circle....

Darrell said...

They're more common then they've ever been. Eastern European gangs came armed, and Brit gangs found that using sticks and bottles wasn't as effective as they thought.

President-Mom-Jeans said...

In honor of Lady Thatcher, I submit this piece of good news from Althouse's own state of Wisconsin.

http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2013/04/public-sector-unions-reeling-in-wisconsin.php

Here is the moneyshot:

"According a Labor Department filing made last week, membership at Wisconsin’s American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Council 40 — one of AFSCME’s four branches in the state — has gone from the 31,730 it reported in 2011, to 29,777 in 2012, to just 20,488 now. That’s a drop of more than 11,000 — about a third — in just two years. The council represents city and county employees outside of Milwaukee County and child care workers across Wisconsin.

Labor Department filings also show that Wisconsin’s AFSCME Council 48, which represents city and county workers in Milwaukee County, went from 9,043 members in 2011, to 6,046 in 2012, to just 3,498 now."

Guess those unions aren't so popular without having the state government acting as their compulsory collections agent.

tim in vermont said...

So when is it going to be fashionable to bash Obama for screwing over coal miners?

That's not the issue. The people who'd shoot Galloway aren't the cutthroats - who wouldn't be stopped by high ammo prices, either, they're the ones who obey the laws and get hammered by the policies of people like him.

Darrell said...

It's a modern version of "not worth the powder to blow to Hell."

Ask the blonde.

ricpic said...

You've won leftists, you've won. London is no longer an English city. And when final victory is achieved and England falls to Sharia Law Thatcher will be disappeared. And then night will fall. Forever. You've done it you magnificent shits.

AReasonableMan said...

I think worse was said, by some, when Ted Kennedy died. A lack of class crosses all partisan lines.

Palladian said...

Just as we can reliably count on Cedarford to link every topic to the Jews, so to can we count on Shouting Thomas to bring everything back to the gays.

I much prefer Cedarford, as his appearances here are brief, and most here are decent people who understand that scapegoating Jews is an evil best left in the past, so we don't have to read a hundred "amens" (or "seig heils") lauding Cedarford's anti-semitism, like we unfortunately do when Shouting Thomas starts his ludicrous and hateful blabbering.

Darrell said...


thanks for the tu quoque, AReasonableLeftie. But we all know a good lefty is a dead one and you will be good someday.

Shanna said...

These are the people you want making decisions. The ones who can't wait a second to dance on the graves of anyone at all they even mildly disagree with.

Assholes, all.

Have to agree, for example when ARM used the Newtown massacre to slime conservatives on this site.

I do get tired of the left preening about this while never managing to apply the standard to themselves. Conor Friedersdorf succumbed to this recently. One day he bemoaned those living an overly politicized life and the next he asserted those reaching different conclusions than he are guilty of pathologies rather than pursuing different priorities. But to the left being reasonable doesn't mean actually being reasonable, it just means claiming to be reasonable whenever you're not demonizing your opponents.

Neither of course can touch Obama, who whines of our coursening political discourse after having made the most outrageously hateful attack by a presidential candidate since at least the Daisy Ad.

Some day George is going to shuffle off to that mortal coil. And in keeping with his lack of decorum I hope someone pisses on his grave.

To a leftist, being reasonable means being a leftist. If you aren't a leftist, you cannot be reasonable by definition. That's why it is redundant to say, "A reasonable liberal."

tim in vermont said...

I can't see haw anybody can compare the drunken murderer with Margaret Thatcher, but leave it to a lefty.

The difference is the what we say about Kennedy is backed up by facts, and what you say about Thatcher is backed up by lefty phantasmagoria.

Nomennovum said...

Ted Kennedy wasn't simply a drunken murderer, Tim. He was a reasonable man.

Original Mike said...

"Margaret Thatcher was a better driver."

Ouch.

Original Mike said...

I gotta say, although I didn't jump at the chance to say it at his death ARM, Chappaquiddick pegs Edward Kennedy as a pretty reprehensible human being.

Big Mike said...

For Brutus is a reasonable man.

Has anybody besides me noticed that the more prescient a conservative is, and the more successful, the more raw hatred spewed out from the Left? You'd think places like Madison, Wisc, and Cambridge, Mass would simply explode fromt he raw excess of hatred.

hawkeyedjb said...

The death of a great person always gives pipsqueaks an opportunity to reveal their character. And the twits never disappoint. Perhaps they don't realize what they look like, biting ankles and thinking they've inflicted a mortal wound.

Sigivald said...

Galloway's still alive?

He dropped off the face of the internet a while back, in that I think I haven't had to read his name in a year or two.

Oh, well.

Patrick (first comment) nailed it. Victory by empty incoherent rhetoric and emotion. Parasites.

I don't believe Baroness Thatcher ever murdered anyone.

No, that will be after we are gone and the Islamists turn on you.

Amartel said...

"Tramp the dirt down" is from a song by Elvis Costello, fashionably politically correct artiste and man of the people.

WTF is your problem. All I said was that classless gloating at the deaths of perceived enemies crosses all boundaries. This seems to be an unremarkable observation.

So good to see such a vigorous defense of Thatcher's befriending of brutal tyrants. Carry on.

Well, FDR had his buddy Stalin on his side. I bet he was a swell chap.

Care to look at Galloway's buddies?

Chuck66 said...

EMD....I always disliked rich facsist blue-bloods like the Ted Kennedy, but would always disagree respecetfully.

But then I saw a video of his speach about Robert Bork. Then I remembered what a douche he was.

Chuck66 said...

damik.....yes. Stalin is (was) the biggest mass murdurer in world history. Roosevelt send millions of tons of supplies (routed through Iran) to help him. A half-dead Roosevelt also gave half of Europe away.

Now, we know that Stalin was the lessor of two evils 1942-1945. But its fun to bring this up to Democrats who don't do critical thinking about world events.

Amartel said...

Look at all the lefties all stirred up and feisty on Margaret Thatcher is Dead Day!

ARM, stop trying to mediate and just pick a side. No one believes the "no labels" "it's all relative" bullshit. Embrace your inner socialist parasite and get to celebrating. You know you want to.

Oops, here's more.

Amartel said...

What a coincidence this attitude only comes out when it gives people an opportunity to attack the right. Ted didn't even die today and ARM feels it necessary to lecture the right on class - quite inappropriately given his history. But somehow he's not motivated to criticize those attacking Thatcher even though it's she who died. Whatever could account for the difference?

To the nutty left when Ted dies it's an opportunity to attack the right, and when Thatcher dies it's an opportunity to attack the right. So we see the lefty inability to apply any standard to themselves. The amusing step in this case is that those taking this position claim to be the "reasonable" parties.

Kirk Parker said...

Darrel,

Indeed, shooting Galloway would be the waste of a perfectly good cartridge.

Let him live; he's one of the best arguments for our side we've got.

Joking about shooting your opponents is also one of your better arguments.

Kirk Parker said...

Under any previous regime, Galloway would have been at least left to rot in prison, if not actually executed, for the traitor that he is.

Fortunately (and just to reemphasize the point, and make sure you can actually read, I said 'FORTUNATELY'--that means I think it's a good thing--not 'sadly') our increased respect for freedom of speech allows this loathsome toad to continue to life as a free man. But he's still a loathsome toad, and just as happily at work trying to destroy the foundations of Western Civilization that you rely upon every bit as much as I do.

Kind of a nutty post. I didn't attack anyone. I simply pointed out the universal character of human nature. Obviously Althouse wants to get everyone all fired up about some fringe left-wing character but a marginally more expansive view of the world would recognize that this kind of shit happens across the political spectrum, Anne Coulter being an obvious example.

Jeff Teal said...

Galloway is viewed over here by many as the voice of the "reasonable" British.To me he follows in the wonderful vein of the appeasers and fellow travellers and outright traitors.You know the graduates of Oxbridge.

Anthony said...

The left wants a society without class. George Galloway gave it to them.

Jake Diamond said...

Once again, the Althouse lemmings confirm their anti-education, anti-knowledge bias.

Except that Coulter is a pundit and not an elected official. That Galloway has survived political disgrace and reemerged to find yet another willing constituency only proves that a subset of Britons is as nutty as he.

Diamond: "Once again, the Althouse lemmings confirm their anti-education, anti-knowledge bias."

Says the side that "graduates" illiterates at the rate of 80% in the bluest of blue cities:

Well, you can't blame them I guess.

They only spend about $20k per year per student.

Jeff Teal said...

Not anti-education.just anti elitism.

Kirk Parker said...

Yes, Galloway is delusional, too. Thanks for pointing that out.

AReasonableMan said...

I don't understand why most of the posters on this thread bite on these kinds of posts by Althouse. They are totally getting played. She can put up posts like this everyday until the end of time. Someone on the left says something stupid and it elicits a Pavlovian response from a bunch of posters. Kos does the same thing on his site. Classic hack work. It is completely unthinking, adds nothing to any debate and everyone is getting played.

Reinforcing negative stereotypes about ideological opposites may make some people feel good about themselves but is a pathetic way to deal with the world.

'll say just one more thing though. I didn't realize or had forgotten what a shallow unthinking lefty Elvis Costello was about Thatcher until today. When he was hot and touring, I had a chance or two to see him but turned it down because the sorts of people who were going were idolizing the man. Now, in retrospect, I see that my instincts were right.

Good riddance to Elvis Costello's career I say. Let's tramp on it bit, shall we?

whoresoftheinternet said...

I'll say it again:

You "righties" who argue that we should treat the left "with civility" and "politely"....this is the response you get.

Vile evil.

They are subhuman savages. treat them as such. You do not negotiate with dogs. You put them down.

Enjoy the decline, sheeple!

Eric Jablow said...

Chuck66, Mao has beaten Stalin in the murder competition. Stalin only killed 20 million people, while Mao killed 65 million.

We don't realize this because of cultural bias. See The Black Book of Communism, ed. Stephane Courtois, for the sad details.
