Katie Hopkins Supports Lynching

Having now been cast adrift from the pundit mainstream, pro-am motormouth Katie Hopkins is left to search for clicks among the detritus of the far-right, around the stagnant tide mark of flotsam and jetsam not yet scoured from the bathtub of history. Here, she has continued her fruitless campaign against London’s elected and popular Mayor Sadiq Khan, not that she’s any kind of racist of course, oh no.
Viewers may still want to look away now

Hatey Katie’s pursuit of any dirt she can find on Khan - which, sadly for her, is not very much - led her to become most agitated at the Mayor’s comments following the decision not to come to London next month by combover crybaby Donald Trump. “The London Mayor believes he is in a position to gloat. #Shithole” she snapped. But she soon had something to applaud, after Khan’s address to the Fabian Society was interrupted.
Sadiq Khan - rather more popular than Katie Hopkins

Here, she deployed a cheap homophobic smear as she smirked “Sadiq Khan speech interrupted by protestors. Pro Sadiq Khan protestors retaliate - by holding flags & standing in a camp manner”. These protesters, she suggested, were in the right: “Anyone else feeling it? The tension between what is being said & what we think? The UK is bristling, screwed down like a pressure cooker”. So who were they?
According to the Guardian, they werea small number of demonstrators from a recently formed far-right group called the White Pendragons”. They told the audience “Ladies and gentlemen, we’re here today to make a non-violent, peaceful citizen’s arrest”. Paul Brand of ITV News later told that “they told us Sadiq Khan has no right to be Mayor of London, referencing his religion”. Khan made light of the incident.
Ms Hopkins did not. After Mail Online correctly described those protesting as a “far-right” group, she countered with “Far right - the appeasers code for ‘this thinking is wrong’”. So the self-proclaimed “White Pendragons” were not only right in her eyes, those who declared otherwise were mere “appeasers”. Ri-i-i-ight.
There was just one teensy problem with her argument: the “White Pendragons” were, perhaps, not there to make a “non-violent, peaceful citizen’s arrest”. They had brought along a worryingly sturdy looking scaffold with them - as in the kind of “scaffold” to which the hero is marched in Hector Berlioz’ Symphonie Fantastique.
We know this as Aaron Bastani Tweeted out a photo of the construction, which had been brought along mounted on a car trailer. He did not find the sight “non-violent” or “peaceful” at all, asking “White nationalists literally brought a gallows as they harassed Sadiq Khan. I’ve seen people arrested for carrying pens as offensive weapons but this is fine?
Maybe the “White Pendragons” were not intending to use their gallows in anger. But once again, had it been anyone who was not white doing that, and certainly if a Tory politician had been targeted, the outrage meter would have been off the scale.

As for Katie Hopkins - she’s seen all of this and happily nodded along with it, being more than happy to slag off anyone of differing view. So now we know that she’s cool with a democratically elected politician being taken out and lynched.

That is fine in the alternative universe of Hatey Katie. I’ll just leave that one there.

She has made money out of acting like a piece of excrement, #shitholePersonified
and genuinely seems to think that this is acceptable
The fact that various media outlets paid her to spew her crazed, racist rants makes them as culpable as she is

Whenever Hopkins speaks I feel obliged to say, "Fart and give us a clue which end your mouth's at, girl".

Like Esther McVey, she's a female equivalent of Donald Duck.

The only use they serve is to renew your efforts to ensure your kids don't end up like either of them.

The Washington Post had an interesting report on these tossers:

Its great watching Hopkins scrabble about with these far right loons, locked out of the mainstream media with nothing but her Twitter feed left to try and get the cash together to pay off Jack Monroes legal fees. Other right wing "controversialists" should take heed about where this kind of extremism eventually leads. Milo has already lost his book deal and his columns and hopefully Toby Young will soon be in a similar situation ( once his Tory mates decide he too much of a risk to carry on protecting), then we just need to wait for the rest of them to blow themselves up, one by one. Parsons, Liddle, O' Neal, McKenzie, Vine, Oakshott, they're all just one tweet or conference or interview that goes too far from joining Hopkins in the media wilderness.

The Sadik Khan protestors may have stood in 'camp' ways (so?) but at least they held their flags the right way up unlike the Pendragon Goose who continued to flaunt his US flag (why a US flag?) upside down in the Mayor's face and for the cameras.
What a bunch of Wallies.

Someone described Hopkins as, 'Pamela Geller's vulva-faced cousin.' I took umbrage at this....and suggested they ADDED 'unemployed Racist' to the description..
