Brutal killers Become Saints in the Trump Era

This character and her party is who many people in the US are looking to as the voice of reason.  She praises Churchill and Thatcher. Thatcher wreaked havoc on working class people and working working class women. She smashed the miners and their union destroying entire communities in the process., I was on those picket lines staying with a family in Barnsley and we ate out of soup kitchens provided by the local Labor Party branches.  There were 18,000 police on those picket lines in the Yorkshire area, some of them badgeless as they were brought over to smash that strike which was all about the right to work and feed their families. I say "brought over" as many of them were fresh from brutalizing Catholics in Northern Ireland.

She talked of black males in the US as being predators, not her husband or her, not her family friend the Egyptian dictator Mubarak. She laughed at the murder of Gadaffi and look at that country now which had one of the higher standards of living in North Africa. She earned millions giving speeches, was on the board of WalMart, she's a nasty one alright. In the video she talks of "migration" as if it's an issue of people just wanting to leave their home and pop over to Germany, Britini or other first world countries and get free health care. They are not migrants. They are refugees, victims of US and western imperialism's massive destruction of their lands and homes. They are running from US bombs.

Churchill was a racist and an enemy of the working class. He hated the Irish and the Indians saying of them, with regard to the famine, ?The famine is Indians? fault because they Breed Like Rabbits. I hate Indians. They are beastly people with beastly religion.?. He said of Palestinians that they were, "barbaric hordes who ate little but camel dung." He used poison gas against the Russian people in an effort to defeat their revolution much as the British did against Native Americans, infecting blankets with typhoid. "I am strongly in favour of using poisoned gas against uncivilised tribes," Churchill boasted calling those that objected "squeamish".

In 1937, he told the Palestine Royal Commission:  "I do not admit for instance, that a great wrong has been done to the  Red Indians of America or the black people of Australia. I do not admit  that a wrong has been done to these people by the fact that a stronger  race, a higher-grade race, a more worldly wise race to put it that way,  has come in and taken their place."

Thatcher was hated by the British working class and rightly so. Churchill is more complicated as his one shining moment was in war time. After that he was a failure. The rise of the degenerate Trump has turned many US citizens in to zombies.  John McCain, the once ridiculed fool is now a hero. Powell, Clinton, George Bush and Obama and others of their class colleagues are now  our saviors.

It's as if this country, the USA has gone mad.
