Thatcher’s Death a Warning to Obama

William Tapley has a terribly amusing video claiming that Margaret Thatcher’s death is a warning to Obama. It’s especially amusing how he claims a verse that refers to a lion in Daniel is really talking about a lioness and is therefore Thatcher. Why a lion and not a lioness? Because “she comes up out of the sea.” Uh, what?

    Does he really mean that if Obama becomes a vicious right-wing bugger, who does everything he can to hurt the less privileged, then when he dies he’ll get an extravagant funeral while benefits are being cut again?
    Sorry, sorry…personal feelings getting in the way again
    Ding! Dong!

  2. Reginald Selkirk says

    Well, obviously! You hear people talk about sea lions, but never about sea lionesses.

    I think I see the confusion, he’s been reading a certain C.S Lewis book and knew she was one of two characters associated with the wardrobe, he just got the wrong one.

    Ding Dong

  4. matty1 says

    OK I tried to watch the video, I got as far as “I’m your host William Tapley also known as the third eagle of the apocalypse” and collapsed laughing.

  5. Who Knows? says

    How does he call himself, “The Third Eagle of the Apocalypse” without just busting up laughing?

    You watch out Ombama – If you keep Going like This you to will Wake up Daed at 84!!1!

    What, no song?

    Regardless of anything else, he’s right that the word for “lion” in Daniel 7:4 is feminine.

  8. Phillip IV says

    Why a lion and not a lioness? Because “she comes up out of the sea.” Uh, what?

    Oh, that makes perfect sense, if you think about it for a minute. Lio-ness…”nass” means “wet” in German, and it was the Germans who planned an invasion code-named “Unternehmen Seelöwe”=”Operation Sealion“. And they were opposed by Winston Churchill, who was a Tory prime minister, just like Thatcher.

    So that’s, like, three unrelated factoids that share a vaguely common theme. By wingnut standards, that’s ironclad evidence. And who used lots of ironclad warships in the 19th Century? The Royal Navy! So that’s four, four unrelated factoids.

    I’ve got a warning for William Tapley too.

    One day he will also end up like Margaret Thatcher.

    The death rate is 100%.

    Unlike Thatcher, his death won’t be front page news. OTOH, crowds of people won’t be lining up to dance on his grave.

    I pushed on a little further and can report he’s also a co-prophet, perhaps the first time prophecy has been run as a job share since Mo and Hammed went into partnership.

    Sounds like he’s comparing Thatcher to Aphrodite. Which makes this whole thing even creepier. I hope people like this don’t end up writing history textbooks.

  12. says

    Lamest numerology ever to grace a nonsensical ramble. And I loved the bit where he uses a pen to point to unreadable text in a box superimposed over the background.

    The Third Eagle of the Apocalypse

    …because the first two eagles didn’t get it right?

    And yeah, how can one be a “co-prophet”? Did God tell two or more people different pieces of a prophecy and tell them to just work together to make it make sense?

  13. dingojack says

    I AM THE 43rd DINGO of the APOCALYPSE!!1!!
    Co-prophet of the Dun Pill-bug under the Living-room Carpet and FORERUNNER of the GRAND COCKREL OF The BANTAM!!! (Chook who walks. He can not fly)

    …perhaps the first time prophecy has been run as a job share since Mo and Hammed went into partnership.

    So Mo ditched Hammed and joined Jesus instead to do cartoons?

  15. Moggie says

    Because “she comes up out of the sea.” Uh, what?

    Oh fuck, now I associate Thatcher with Ursula Andress. Damn you!

  16. matty1 says

    Oh fuck, now I associate Thatcher with Ursula Andress. Damn you!

    You had to share? Now I’m trying to claw out my minds eye.

  17. tsig says

    so we have a lion with the wings of an eagle, a bear, a four headed leopard

    and evidently truckasaurus.”

    That would be a “leaglebearpard” which along with the crocoduck is proof of evolution.

    Who’s the other co prophet and where’s the other two eagles?

  18. caseloweraz says

    By “comes out of the sea,” Tapley might mean that Thatcher arose from the proletariat. The same is true of Obama, if “proletariat” is taken to mean the lower classes, rather than the working class. Although even that broader definition is a stretch since Obama, IIRC, had a rich grandmother who made sure he got a good education.

  19. matty1 says

    Thatcher’s father was a shop owner and local councillor, I’d say that counts as middle class not proletariat.

  20. says

    Well, here’s Tapley’s own [cough] explanation for his “titles”:

    My title “Third Eagle of the Apocalypse” came to me when I asked God who was the “Eagle” as found in Revelation 8:13. He told me: “you are”. Now, I should explain, I do not hear voices, but sometimes God gives prophecy to me by a revelation which I know comes not from my own thoughts but outside my mind. My title “Co Prophet of the End Times” means that I complete the end times prophecies of Daniel, Ezekiel, Esther, John and even of our Lord in the Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24-25).

    Excuse me while I apply anti-boggle cream to my brain.

  21. matty1 says

    I complete the end times prophecies of Daniel, Ezekiel, Esther, John and even of our Lord in the Olivet Discourse

    Modest too.

  22. shouldbeworking says

    Thatcher rose from the sea because of the lyrics to “Rule Britannia” is my guess.

    When Britain first, at Heaven’s command
    Arose from out the azure main;
    This was the charter of the land,
    And guardian angels sang this strain:

  23. shouldbeworking says

    Or did I just attribute too much knowledge about a foreign country to a right wing american exceptionalist idiot?

    Re 31

    Ah shit, I only wanted to post the link. How does one post the link to a Youtube video and not the video itself?

  25. caseloweraz says

    Matty1: “Thatcher’s father was a shop owner and local councillor, I’d say that counts as middle class not proletariat.”

    Yes. I must have been thinking of someone else’s parents.

  26. caseloweraz says

    What works for me is to copy the link to the clipboard and paste it into the comment.

  27. slc1 says

    Re caseloweraz @ #34

    Thanks, I’ll try that next time. The pasting of the video instead of the link seems to be a WordPress problem as it is also the case on Jerry Coyne’s blog.

    “By “comes out of the sea,” Tapley might mean that Thatcher arose from the proletariat. The same is true of Obama, if “proletariat” is taken to mean the lower classes, rather than the working class”

    and if by “lower classes” you mean”her father was mayor of Grantham and a director of several companies.’
