Even before the dust had settled in the aftermath of the terrorist attack in Manchester, Katie Hopkins took to Twitter & tweeted the following…
I’m well acquainted with her brand of hateful far-right gobshiteness, I consider Katie Hopkins to the vilest of vile cunts as I’ve seen the hurt caused by her hateful gobshiteness affecting the most vulnerable in society, but even I’m lost for words at such a repugnantly divisive & incendiary statement from Hopkins.
Particularly as the aftermath of last night is probably still very raw for many peeps, what Katie Hopkins has tweeted is actually dangerous. There have already been reports of racially motivated violence following last night’s terrorist attack & what Hopkins has tweeted is definitely race baiting, actually what Hopkins tweeted amounts to the criminal offense of incitement to racial hatred & my understanding is that she has been reported to the police for having done so, but don’t expect her to go to prison if convicted, in fact don’t expect her to be convicted, it’s more likely she’ll get a fucking pay raise from all this hateful racist/Islamophobic bullshit.
I did see there was a petition doing the rounds, urging LBC Radio to sack her, not on your fucking nelly are LBC going to be sacking Katie Hopkins, they’ve not fired her up to now for the all the vile shite she’s said & we all know she’s said fucking plenty! Hopkins is what we call in the news media biz ‘good copy’, the shit she says or writes gets a reaction, it gets an audience, etc, something which the business of news media craves to exist.
I’ve unfortunately for various journalistic & activist reasons listened to a great deal of Conservative talk radio in the United States which is chockfull of shock-jocks such as Alex Jones who said the Sandy Hook massacre was faked even before the bodies of the school children gunned down were cold, they’d not be able to make a living if there wasn’t an audience listening to them & the likes of Alex Jones ain’t exactly financially poor.
So long as there’s an audience listening to her radio show or reading her column in the Daily Fail then Katie Hopkins will be far-right gobshite nuisance who’s given platforms in the mainstream media.
Don’t feed the troll I think the saying goes, well in with Katie Hopkins that is definitely true.
