Morrissey Puts Margaret Thatcher On Blast!

margaret thatcher morrissey death iron lady blast passing prime minister hatred disrespect

Margaret Thatcher was a polarizing figure, and people STILL either love her or hate her even after she's passed. She did help pave the way for women in politics, though!

On the flip side, there are people that can never forget that she was called The Iron Lady for a reason. If we made a list of those people, we'd be willing to bet that singer Morrissey would add his own name RIGHT AT THE TOP!

Morrissey just put the former Prime Minister on blast, calling her barbaric! Here's what he said:

"Thatcher is remembered as The Iron Lady only because she possessed completely negative traits such as persistent stubbornness and a determined refusal to listen to others. Every move she made was charged by negativity; she destroyed the British manufacturing industry, she hated the miners, she hated the arts, she hated the Irish Freedom Fighters and allowed them to die, she hated the English poor and did nothing at all to help them, she hated Greenpeace and environmental protectionists, she was the only European political leader who opposed a ban on the ivory trade, she had no wit and no warmth and even her own cabinet booted her out."

DAYUM — the scope of that hatred is wiiiiiiide!

He continued:

"[She will] only be fondly remembered by sentimentalists. As a matter of recorded fact, Thatcher was a terror without an atom of humanity."

That's brutal, no matter where you fall on the like or dislike line. We will say one thing: Morrissey is not without passion. He gives 110% to everything he believes!

Oh, and we should mention that Judy Garland's Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead has climbed back onto the charts since the news of her death! Pretty disrespectful, but the fact is interesting anyway!

    Ummm.. All you fools that think he's got more talent than me… You don't know who I am.. I SOLD that fool music… I KNOW…. You don't. He has NO CLUE about politics. All you new age progressives don't have a fucking clue what was going on in the world 40 years ago…. Fucking retard idiots. Just worry about your gay marriage… That's all you know

    What a tacky cowardly douche.

    Very disrespectful, Thatcher achieved a lot and couldn't have been that unpopular considering she served the longest term in office with the exception of Liverpool. Insecure men generally don't warm up to confident women. He should concentrate on his music career.

    I don't like his music but I definitely agree about almost everyhing he says about politics . He's right about this too , of course . I come from a place where we suffered A LOT because of that woman , so I know what he's talking about .

    They are using her to slam Reagan. Like clockwork. Reagan and Thatcher years involved a lot of military incursion and almost all of it can be deemed unjustified, but no more incursion than what took place under the Jimmy Carter years as both Reagan and Thatcher took all of their commands from former National Security Adviser, Zbigniew Brzezinski! This man is basically the current mastermind of what they think will be a New World Order …AND he is the man who found and created Barack Obama (Sotero) while teaching at Columbia University in 1981.

    Come on Perez staff, its a fucking blog, we can post what we want right? Uptight.

    You can think whatever you want about Thatcher but to dance on her grave when she dies and treat her as if she is Aileen Wournos or some awful person is absurd. A lot of Republicans don't agree with Obama or Harry Reid, but they don't wish them sick or any physical harm. Morrissey is just sick.

    Paved the way for women in politics! Bullshit! Thatcher ruined any chance of women in politics, and you can forget a women ever becoming a prime minister! her 'reign' destroyed so many lives, she made the rich very rich and the poor very poor, see you lot in america havent a clue of the distruction she caused, specialy in liverpool were she basically wanted to see us die away, she sold off coucil housing and council business' like merseyrail were if she had kept them in time the council could of made a fortune. And does it really still need reminding that it was in fact her own son that was selling weaponary to iran as we were in war with iran! Not only that she illegally killed 700 young argantinian men for completely stubborn reasons. Any person who mournes her death are either conservative scum or just havent read up enough on her.

    Re: whatupperez1 – you mean to tell me with all threats with guns, and attacks on his wife and children, that conservatives don't wish Obama harm? YOU LIE!



  17. 17

    Re: matusadona – If Obama died, believe me, I'd be partying and dancing on his grave. He is an evil man.

    This moron's "passion" doesn't compare to the true passion she had. What an idiot.

    "It's so easy to laugh, it's so easy to hate, it takes guts to be gentle & kind" hmm, who said that?

    You're a hypocritical douche, Morrissey. I went to four show last tour. You're music is great, but STFU.

    Rest in peace, Margaret Thatcher. You were a truly GREAT woman.
