Child star Shirley Temple, all grown up at the age of 85 as Shirley Temple Black, passed away late at night on February 10th and the left-wing got wind of the fact that she was *gasp* - a Republican.
These tweets are truly indicative of the depth of rage leftists have for those whom they consider their political enemies. Feel free to shake your head at some of these real doozies:
Saddest part about Shirley Temple dying: I learned on Wikipedia that she spent most of her post-acting life working for the Republican PartyYou learned on Wikipedia that she was a Republican, and that was the saddest part of her death?

Have another Martini, Rick.
Twenty years from now most of the Republican Party will be dead. Shirley Temple was just another old conservative who now can't vote.

Shirley Temple Black was an inspiration to so many child stars who dreamed of becoming adult Republican idiots.

Unlike you, the brain surgeon who moonlights as a Twitter provocateur.
I had no idea Shirley Temple was such a staunch Republican. I guess the “Good Ship Lollipop” was really a INS deportation boat.No, let's keep the foreigners. Ship the idiots.

Boy, these folks sure are class acts.
Sorry not that sad about Shirley Temple because she became a conservative nut bag.

I'm guessing we could subtract your IQ from Shirley Temple Black's and still make bus fare. Next.
It's sad whenever someone dies; but Shirley Temple was an Anti-Choice, Republican who wanted to abolish welfare.

Nothing says “choice” like ramming through a national healthcare law with a mandate over full party opposition.
R.I.P. #ShirleyTemple an iconic image and brand as a child marred in adult life by her unfortunate right wing Republican tendencies

Oh no, they weren't done yet. There are a few more saved as screenshots, and you can get those on Twitchy. But you get the point, the left will hate on anyone whom they perceive as their political enemies - even an adorable child star who just passed away after a long life making people happy.
