This blog initially set out to focus primarily on Islam and the Islamisation of the UK. However, since that time the subjects covered have broadened. They now include (amongst other things): IQ tests, Jean Baudrillard, global warming, sociobiology, Marxism, Trotskyism, David Cameron, Foucault, Nazism, Ralph Miliband, economics, statistics and so on. - Paul Austin Murphy

Was Thatcher a "Tyrant"? Leftists Think So

A woman who's against "tyrants" flying the Communist/Soviet flag.


Just after Margaret Thatcher died last week, a woman carried out an internet campaign to organise street parties to “celebrate” her death. Her name was Romany Blythe, a 45-year-old community drama teacher from south London.


She claimed she had invited more than 5,300 people to a “flash party” to mark Lady Thatcher’s passing, with the message: “Anyone else like to join us?”


This self-described "Leftist" also said:


“Come and celebrate our liberty and freedom from tyranny!"
 

Fucking bizarre! Thatcher left office in 1990 - 23 years ago! In addition, I love her Leftist soundbite: "freedom from tyranny". How ridiculous! Thatcher may have been many things but she wasn’t a tyrant. Even if we accept she was dogmatic, stubborn, etc. that still didn’t make her a tyrant.


Whatever you think about Thatcher, everything she did she still did within - an admittedly flawed -democratic system. She supported democracy even though she was a “strong leader” – there is no contradiction between being a strong leader and embracing democracy (remember Churchill?). Within a system of democracy, a leader may well even ride roughshod over what they can ride roughshod over – but it’s still all within the democratic system. 


Also, sometimes, in a democracy, things happen that you don't like simply because a lot of people DO like them (as with Thatcher's policies). It’s clear that Leftist totalitarians (see her flying the Communist/Soviet flag) like this woman simply refuse to accept the fact that some people disagree with them; and especially when they have political power to act on those political differences. But that’s democracy, Lefty! I know you don’t think “capitalist democracy” is real democracy. Real democracy, to her, is a system when only people like her have power and when all the Thatchers of this world end up in the Gulag or a victim of the Lesser Gulag – the Leftists’ ubiquitous “no platform policy”.


If the totalitarian Left, such as this woman, don't like democracy, then that's their problem. And we know that anyway.
