We are back to Katie Hopkins since whilst her views are ill-informed, ill-judged and on some occasions, inflammatory, we think that she has finally topped the leader board in making up facts as you go along. Take for example, comments made in her column in the Sun newspaper, (Friday the 27th of February), where she froths and vocalises how she wanted to throw her radio through the window of a Halal only Subway. She stated:
“I am outraged that my country is changing and Great Britain is looking less great. I am also sick of holding my tongue. Enough.
The simple fact is that nearly half of Muslims in the UK think that the bearded loons who spout violence against the West are pretty much in line with mainstream Muslim opinion.
According to a BBC poll, almost half – 45% – believe that extremist clerics who preach violence against the West are “not out of touch.”
Do you hear that? 45% of Muslims in the UK think that the hooked preacher of hate was dead on the money. There are bearded fanatics ranting in the street encouraging ‘their brothers’ to machete the heads of white boys and not approvingly as they sauntee of to Sainsbury’s.
When I heard the BBC celebrating that the majority of British Muslims are opposed against those who want to fight against British interests, I wanted to yank my radio from the wall and hurl it through the window of the nearest Halal only subway.”
Katie Hopkins and her views do not just belong in the last century, some of her comments are racialised and insidiously present a ‘white’ and ‘black’ perspective. She comments on cutting the heads of white young men, yet fails to add that Jihadis have killed both Muslims and non-Muslims and people of many races. Yet, it is interesting to note that she does not contextualise her comments.
In the article, Katie mentions that she has been warned by legal advisors regarding commenting on issues such as this. She clearly continues to disregard that advice. Only time will tell whether Katie crosses a line through her language.
