Still chasing after any and every money-generating activity that flits across her field of vision, pro-am motormouth Katie Hopkins is still trying to generate outrage, and thus hits and clicks, for Canadian far-right outfit Rebel Media. This has involved her in characteristically paranoid pursuit of all those Scary Muslims™ to the extent that she has brought mostly ridicule raining down on her.
Viewers may still want to look away now
Thus the law of diminishing returns is setting in, which is a troubling prospect when bigotry is the only means Ms Hopkins has of generating revenue. Still, onwards and, er, onwards, eh? “British Muslims - apparently slaughtering animals in their council house back yard … RSPCA response (Royal Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) … Do not let your country fall as we have fallen” she wailed plaintively.
Well, have I got news for Hatey Katie: people have been keeping animals and slaughtering them within the boundaries of their own homes for centuries. It’s got stuff all to do with race and/or religion. Past generations of my own family were participants in this enterprise, which came in very useful during World War 2 rationing.
But on she droned. “Let’s play guess the country. There is a big red clue in here if you are struggling”. Yeah, right. London street signs, London landline phone numbers, London black cabs, UK road markings and signage, English signage on most, if not all, of the shops. So it’s London. What’s her problem? It’s not more racism, is it?
Her reply to one critic - “Thanks Mohammed. Can you refer me to the terrorist attacks committed by Chinese and Italians against my country in the last 5 years?” - confirmed that it was indeed more racism. And so it came to pass that severely adverse comment was passed on Ms Hopkins by a variety of her fellow Tweeters.
Comedian Janey Godley, whose reception for Combover Crybaby Donald Trump was so memorable, put her straight. “I live [on] Great Western Road [in] Glasgow - near a mosque with many Asian food shops, these people are my neighbours not my enemy. The care home my dad was in near the mosque has plenty [of] immigrant staff who treated my dad with care and dignity to his last day. You’re a racist clackwanker”. Ouch!
Darrell Jones was equally tired of the bigotry. “Start of the Edgware Road and has been like this for over 40 yrs. Further up it’s Indian shops and up in Edgware it’s Jewish. Golborne Road is Portuguese, Moroccan, Spanish. London has been a multi cultural city for centuries. If you don’t like it, go back to Devon. #racist”. Good to know where I can score some salt cod and sardine paté next time I’m in London, then.
Oh, and olives. But, as Clive James might have said, I digress. Jan Davies was mostly in agreement with Jones, except … “I'm from Devon - we don't want her either!” Well, it seems Ms Hopkins and her husband succeeded in selling their Exeter house earlier this year, despite the appalling green breakfast room. So who knows?
All of which means Hatey Katie has once again been handed her arse as a result of peddling racist bigotry. Perhaps one day she will finally get the message.
