Katie Hopkins Is NOT Jesus

What's the ugliest
Part of your body?
What's the ugliest
Part of your body?
Some say your nose
Some say your toes
But I think it's YOUR MIND
I think it's your mind, woo woo

After losing the libel action brought against her by Jack Monroe, pro-am motormouth Katie Hopkins faced up to the imminent loss of £24,000 in damages, £300,000 in Mx Monroe’s costs, and probably a not dissimilar amount of her own - she did, after all, retain the services of Kingsley Napley in her defence - by combining something she does rarely - keeping schtum - with something she does a lot - playing the victim.
Pass the sick bucket

Thus it was that Hatey Katie took to Twitter to tell her followers “Welcome to all my new followers. Standing strong for all those who no longer have a voice”, the Tweet accompanied by a photo of Herself Personally Now captioned “I see myself as the Jesus of the outspoken”. This jaw-dropping slice of brass neck was immediately subjected to a level of ridicule that suggests her Twitter audience has now got her sussed.
So let me put Ms Hopkins straight: likening oneself to Jesus is not merely a particularly crass example of calling the name of the Lord God in vain - extremely vain, in Katie’s case - it sits uneasily with her reaction to refugees drowning in the Mediterranean Sea: “Show me bodies floating in the water, play violins and show me skinny people looking sad. I still don’t care”. For good measure, she called refugees “Cockroaches”.

It was this intolerant and un-Christian attitude that moved the great Otto English to comment on her libel loss “Why it's perfectly ok to milk immeasurable schadenfreude from the spectacular libel loss of paid troll @KTHopkins”. And there was more: Ms Hopkins continued this intolerant attitude to those who are not white when five young men drowned off Camber Sands. She immediately suggested they were illegal migrants.
The five were all British, but hey ho. She had at least managed to get a mention of Anders Breivik into her narrative, and talking of unreconstructed racists (that is, racists other than Herself), Hatey Katie also managed to Retweet an account calling itself “Anti Juden SS”. Her excuse for this mere slip? “To be fair, I didn’t look at the Twitter handle. I have pulled the retweet”. Yes, a big boy did it and ran away.
And in case anyone is still prepared to give her a free pass for all of that, don’t forget that she is prepared to endorse Combover Crybaby Donald Trump, and especially the way he deals with all those pesky journalists who have gone soft and keep asking inconvenient questions: the thought enters that she would have been at home with the Greek Colonels, Francisco Franco and António de Oliveira Salazar.

Katie Hopkins is not Jesus. And, better than that, she’s not credible anymore, either.

She is actually made up as Mary not Jesus and those who she thinks of "her" people will find it very disrespectful.

You know what's funny about this?

That Hopkins DOESN'T think it's funny.

Still, she can always get on her bike, cycle up to Newcastle and look for another job. After all, that's what loony old cockney Tebbit said everyone could do.

The sound of uproarious laughter she can hear is quite literally at her expense.

While the Mail quietly disposes of her services and she scratches around for a few hundred thousand quid to pay for her stupidity, can we forget about the twisted little self-publicist now, please?

Can any Bible experts here refer me to the part about Jesus being sued for libel?

Could KT be innocently confusing being Jesus with being the anti-Christ? We've all been there...
