Thatcher Gets Funeral Fit For A Dictator


By Finian Cunningham at

-  The funeral for former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher takes place today in London with full military honors. Not since Sir Winston Churchill, the famous Second World War leader, has the British state bestowed such an honor on a deceased prime minister.


(She served 3 terms, and the UK STATE expended a lot of energy and resources deifying her during her 11 year term, the longest serving PM since Salisbury, in conjunction with the International Jews who were the real powers behind her on the International and especially trans-Atlantic plain. 

"The Iron Lady" movies by Hollywood...as ultimate symbols of Jewish backing of her deification. She served as one OF A VERY FEW 'useful idiot' puppet and tool of the International Jews in implementing their neo-liberal policies of Monetarism which originated from the Chicago School of economics led by Professor Milton Friedman the Jew from the late 1960's and into the 1980's......in such places as Russia after 1991 after the collapse of Communism; Chile and ironically Argentina.....
That such a radical economic model experimented on by a very few states in the real sense, including the UK has been a total disaster for those countries. This failure did not manifest itself totally under Thatcher because: (i) she did not implement Monetarism completely......the policies and structure of post war Britain were not completely abolished.....but the role of the state was rolled back from a peak of Budget to GDP ratio of 60% in the 1960's to about 40% under her...privatization of State assets etc. (ii) North Sea oil cushioned the blow of her misjudged economic policies then, as it still does today. 

The FAILURE of this model is manifesting itself NOW, gradually as the Mini-ME  Thatchers such as Blair, Brown and Cameron have continued with her policies....backed and egged on by the International Jews.

Think of this way as an outsider, of the power of mass STATE propaganda. In Russia, Stalin STILL often gets top billing for being the most popular Russian leader, or figure in various polls in the country, sadly. 

AND YET.....Stalin was a Georgian not a Russian, a Jew who robbed banks, who worked both sides...(the Czars secret police and the Bolsheviks), dined and met with the richest International Jews in Switzerland, prior to and during WWI to conspire for revolution, surrounded himself with Jews...not authentic Russians..and of course carried out mass genocide against his own people that out did Hitler...and destroyed his own military, AT A CRITICAL SENSITIVE TIME IN THE INTERNATIONAL PLAIN, to enable and guarantee a protracted blood fest between Nazi Germany and a patently weakened Soviet Union (Finno-Russian war 1940) during the mass purges of the 1930's...which were attributed to his peculiar paranoia, and not to any specific International conspiracy to set WWII into a 5 war slogging match. 1940-45 in real terms.

Thatcher is a bit like that......and whereas Bolshevism has disappeared along with the KGB, sort of...Thatchers Monetarist Britain has tightened its grip on the British people, through a paranoiac police state that is unmatched in the world.   


British monarch Queen Elizabeth II will attend the funeral service at St Paul’s Cathedral for Thatcher, who died last week at the age of 87. The last time the head of the British state attended such an occasion in 1965, for the funeral of Churchill. 

On that occasion, the British public was largely supportive of the farewell ceremony, as Winston Churchill was seen as the redoubtable leader of a national unity government during a period of great crisis.

(400,000 British servicemen, and 40,000 British civilians died fighting Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan....so it was natural that Churchill the war time leader would gain a lot of gratitude from the British people traumatized by yet another great world war.....lasting 6 years. 

It should also be remembered that since Queen Victoria, the British State had refined the art of state sponsored pomp and circumstance...excelling itself way past the demise of the empire itself in the 1950's and 1960's. 

Finally the British public in the so called 'swinging sixties' was essentially grey, conservative and jingoistic in comparison to what it is NOW.....a lot more educated, informed and far more cynical towards state authority and any contrived BS it spurts out........HENCE the reason for PARALLEL tightening the grip on the state by the Jewish led elite, which is NOW excelled far beyond how it was in the 1960's, and certainly far beyond what it was in the late 1930's, when Britain faced the Nazi hordes.

The Falklands War was never equal in any sense to WWII and Britain's achievements in that war.....as the numbers of casualties above indicate, and where 80% of the British economy was eventually mobilized by 1945...and 5 million fighting men. In the Falklands war of a few days, maybe weeks...250 British servicemen dead, and 36,000 professional servicemen mobilized backed by the USA, and Chile against essentially 20,00 Argentinian conscripts.

Though for Thatcher it might be more factually correct to celebrate a quasi military funeral...then one based on REAL economic success, and turning the British economy around.......SHE didn't....she instead swung her hand bag, and destroyed British industry, and empower International Jewish Capital through the The City in London, and high Jew finance and speculative mobile capital, which has no loyalty to any state. That is not good for the majority of British people.


But why such an honor is being afforded to Lady Thatcher – a partisan and bitterly divisive politician – is an inflammatory issue. What’s more, despite the widespread public contempt for Thatcher, the British state is foisting a high-profile day of mourning, at an estimated cost of $10 million – exceeding that of the funerals for the Queen Mother and Princess Diana.


The forced mourning and the military trappings is, of course, an ideological, propaganda stunt by the British state. In the face of public opposition to the stately honoring of Thatcher, today’s proceedings smack of dictatorship by Britain’s ruling elite. The occasion – paid for by the austerity-clobbered British taxpayer – is also being seen as an indulgence in British jingoism and imperialism.


In that way, the late Baroness Thatcher is to receive a funeral fit for a dictator. 

Amid gun salutes and a horse-drawn carriage, her flag-draped coffin will be given a full military guard of honor. Regiments and armed-service personnel will be drawn from the ranks of the Royal Air Force, Navy and Army. Personnel from regiments and warships that featured prominently in Britain’s 1982 war with Argentina over Las Malvinas (The Falklands Islands) will carry her coffin up the steps of St Paul’s.


Other late British prime ministers of equal and more stature to Thatcher, such as Harold Wilson, James Callaghan (?????....unremarkable one term PM..presided over the 'Winter of discontent'...and implemented IMF austerity policies.....the INITIAL beginning of the Shock Therapy; and beggar money from the Shah of Iran of $1.2 billion which the UK has not paid back to Iran..with interest...$5 billion) and Edward Heath (Known Pedophile????? who WAS warned by the head of the MPC for cruising and cottaging for sex with boys), were consigned to history without any of the pageantry on display today.(Harold McMillan--OK, Clement Atlee OK as far as I know)


Why is the so-called Iron Lady being given such special privilege, especially when her public esteem is so low? It is all to do with British statecraft subtly elevating the pillars of the British state – class oppression and militarism.


In another symbol of state deification of Thatcher, the iconic Big Ben clock tower at Westminster Palace will be silenced during the funeral proceedings. Again, the last and only time Big Ben was silenced during its 155 years was for the funeral of Winston Churchill.


Churchill was a drunk, a racist and a mass-murdering imperialist (I heard he was bi-sexual and into gay orgies organized in London for elite club boys, and invited masseurs into 10 Downing Street for sex whilst PM. He used poison gas against Iraqi and Afghan rebels in the 1920's, and killed upto 6 million Indians in the state of Bengal 1943, as a deliberate starvation policy...to prevent them revolting against the evil British empire and join the invading Japanese Empire poised in Myanmar, in the wake of the quit India movement from 1942. Churchills explanation for this brutal genocidal policy was that Britain at war needed to stockpile huge quantities of rice for essential war stocks IN THE UK), but at least he had a veneer of respect among the British public. 
(Churchill was a filthy, worthless, Neanderthal looking Jew...on his mothers side, of the Trans-Atlantic variety who was a over pampered privileged good for nothing. Run as a puppet by Lord Victor Rothschild.........YES YES, the same guy who ran Thatcher as a puppet...30 years later from 1975 onwards; who wrote most if not all his speeches.....State guided propaganda went a long way in the gullible British public in the 1940's...as it does now to lessor extent. )

Whereas Thatcher’s memory is one of an unvarnished demagogue who destroyed British industry and society more than German Luftwaffe bombers ever did, and yet the public is being dragooned into paying final respects. Her state-forced funeral is therefore a glaring insight into the unilateral rule of the British oligarchy.


The pomp and ceremony over Thatcher’s passing through the streets of the British capital today, including tight security arrangements for hundreds of international dignitaries, would be nowhere afforded, and therefore staged, if it weren’t for the taxpayer stumping the bill. 

The irony of that is that Thatcher supposedly stood for private financing and enterprise and against any form of state economic intervention. If her funeral were carried out strictly in accord with her supposed ideological principles, the occasion would pass off today as a minor footnote. Instead, the British ruling class is closing ranks to ensure that one of its dutiful political defenders is elevated to national and world stature – and, to boot, getting the oppressed working people of Britain to pay for the propaganda stunt.

 
As in life, so too in death, Margaret Thatcher continues to incite controversy and public outrage. Britain’s only female premier, she was elected three consecutive times between 1979-1990 before she was ousted from Downing Street by her own rat-like Conservative Party to appease growing public anger over her sinister policies.


Despite successive elections, her victories in the polls never commanded an outright majority among the British electorate, and her success was more to do with political weakness among Britain’s other main parties, Labor and the Liberals. Even members among her own party referred to her rule as “elected dictatorships.”


More than 20 years after her ouster, millions of Britons detest her memory for the mass unemployment and poverty that Thatcher inflicted with her apocryphal ideology of unfettered capitalism. Millions, too, detested her militarism, which cynically used war over the remote British colonial possession in the South Atlantic – Las Malvinas Islands – as a re-election stunt. Her covert war in Ireland in which she sanctioned the use of death squads and shoot-to-kill policing to terrorize Irish citizens also remains a source of ignominy.


The South Atlantic connection is rather appropriate. During Thatcher’s war with Argentina over Las Malvinas, also known as the Falklands, Britain received crucial military assistance from Chile’s dictator, Augusto Pinochet. Pinochet’s regime afforded Britain surveillance and territorial cover to defeat neighboring Argentine sea and air forces.


That is why Thatcher remained life-long friends with the Chilean dictator and ensured that his junta received British military contracts despite its appalling human rights record.


When Pinochet died in 2006, he was facing hundreds of indictments for human rights violations, murder and embezzlement of millions of dollars. During his 17-year reign of terror, which began as a US-backed military coup against elected President Salvadore Allende in 1973, more than 3,000 Chileans were murdered, thousands were disappeared, 30,000 were imprisoned and tortured, and some 200,000 political opponents were forced into exile. Many of the latter, accused of being communist subversives, would be later hunted down and killed by Pinochet’s death squads in Operation Condor – with the help of the American Central Intelligence Agency.


That is the kind of person Thatcher associated with. Not those who aspired for democracy in society, but those who aspired to crush democracy. As one Chilean woman living in Britain told media on the news of Thatcher’s death last week:

The Thatcher government directly supported Pinochet’s murderous regime, financially, via military support, even military training. Members of my family were tortured and murdered under Pinochet, who was one of Thatcher’s closest allies and friend. Those of us celebrating are the ones who suffered deeply.

Fittingly, among the hundreds of foreign dignitaries at Thatcher’s funeral today will be FW de Klerk, the last white leader of the apartheid South African state. Thatcher was an ardent supporter of the racist regime that for decades brutally suppressed democratic majority black rule. In her support, Thatcher defied international sanctions imposed on the regime and she denounced the black leader Nelson Mandela as a “terrorist.”


Also in attendance in St Paul’s Cathedral today will be former US vice president Dick Cheney, who was one of the main architects of the American-led wars on Afghanistan and Iraq, which have destroyed over 1.5 million civilian lives and have turned two sovereign nations into smoldering ruins. Henry Kissinger and James A Baker III, two other wanted US war criminals and figureheads of American imperialism, will be among the mourners lending a touch of solemnity to the passing of Britain’s dictator prime minister.


Like her close friend, Augusto Pinochet, Lady Thatcher’s bodily remains are to be cremated. Pinochet’s family said that procedure was taken in 2006 to avoid vandalism of his burial site – such was the hatred of the fascist dictator. Despite the pomp being afforded by the British state for Thatcher, perhaps the same concerns about public anger underlie the reason for her discreet disposal.



She once arrogantly and famously said of her own intransigent policies, “The Lady is not for turning”. But, the Lady is for burning.
