you can make a string lower case by using .lower()


So if wanted a lower case representation of your message, you could just do 

lowerCaseMessage = message.lower()
#do all your checking with lowerCaseMessage

There's also casefold(), which is an even more aggressive way of comparing, which accounts for more situations in other languages. For example, in german you have the 'ß' character, which can also be written as 'ss'. If you would want muß == muss to be true (which you might if you are parsing input from a user), then casefold would be a better option.
