Partial list of "Enemies of the state",are you on it?


Recommended Posts

Oh, there were many other reasons. But fundamentally, I suspect the Left hated Thatcher because she could speak in difficult venues, tell the truth, and voters - who normally would have been conned by sloppy Leftist gibberish - understood her.

They also didn't like her economic policies; they didn't like the way she masturbated to the glories of a violent British Empire; they didn't like that she claimed warm friendship with Pinochet, and considered the torturer and killer as a champion of freedom.....

But, no your political theory--"The Left! The Left!", in the usual nuanced formulation--sounds much more sober and reasoned.

BH, maybe we should rent a room to pursue this discussion.

Pinochet? You've reached a Godwin point. IMV, when Leftists invoke Pinochet (and his supposed connection to Reagan/Thatcher), they've jumped the shark.

[For the uninformed: Pinochet came to power in Chile through a violent coup in 1973. Thatcher came to power in an election in 1979. Check Wikipedia for further details.]

Why does the Left hate Thatcher so much? Is it because of Pinochet? Her economic policies? I'm going to stick with my original idea: Thatcher (like Reagan) was not afraid to say simple, obvious truths in any place, in any venue.

In a similar sense, the Left (university professors et al) vilifies Ayn Rand. She too argued with the Left on their territory, in their terms.
