Today Baroness Margaret Thatcher died, she was a mother, a wife, a friend and to some a role model. She was also the former prime minister of the UK
and many in this country actively hated her politics and polices.
And today she died in her old age of a stroke and then something else sad happened; the nasty people of ATS came out to spread their vulgar and
disgusting remarks. I will not name names or threads, the people responsible know who they are and they should be ashamed. It’s not just ATS to be
fair, the mass of sheeple on my Facebook and Twitter done the same but I honestly expected more of my fellow members of ATS.
It would seem that expectation was unfounded because today I saw a very nasty side to a few members of ATS that made me feel ashamed to be a member of
the same community as these sick individuals. Regardless of anyone’s political disagreements it is not an excuse for to jump for joy over her
corpse. As individuals, none of us I would hope would ever cheer as an old lady dies. Yet today because Thatcher was a public figure who lead this
country over 20 years ago some of the less that civil members of our community thought it fit to post some of the most vile remarks I have ever had
the unfortunate experience to read. These nasty people all came oozing out of the woodwork with their vulgarity and cruelness to cheer with joy at an
old lady they had never even knew.
As a fellow member today I hang my head in shame for the first time since Sandy Hook and I have come to realise that there are some very cruel members
on ATS. Today these members have shown themselves for what they really are.
I for one despised the political stance that Thatcher supported and I actively hated many of her policies that hit my family hard. But to turn a
political view into such venomous hate and joy over hear death, by disrespecting the value of a human life and its passing, regardless of who that
individual might have been, I believe is to only diminish my values and political believes. It would seem that some of my fellow members do not my
value human life like the rest of us do or our respect for the dead.
