Katie Hopkins denies being a racist... by being massively racist
The former Apprentice star takes aim at 'gypsies' and 'travellers' in an attention-seeking Twitter rant that would curdle Farage's tea
In an entirely characteristic series of offensive tweets, Katie Hopkins has declared to her followers that she is “not a racist”.
The only problem is she did so after being so racist even Nigel Farage would have denied all knowledge of her, had she in fact have been a Ukip councillor and not just a former Apprentice contestant who occasionally gets wheeled out on debate shows to shout down benefits claimants.
Today’s targeted cultural groups were “travellers” and “gypsies”, whom Hopkins declared were “ferrel humans[sic]” (yes, she spelt feral wrong) that “we have no duty to”.
She went on to lambast schools for introducing cultural assemblies to educate children about the traveller lifestyle and threw in a few sourceless figures about taxpayers' money and how much of it we’re probably not hemorrhaging over their existence.
And then she tossed in some equally crass comments over the sentencing of Islamic cleric Abu Hamza – the notorious London ‘hate preacher’ who was found guilty of a number of terrorism charges in the US on Monday (19 May):
Gypsies are not travellers. Travellers are people that commute to work or go on holiday. Gypsies are ferrel humans - we have no duty to themKatie Hopkins (@KTHopkins) May 21, 2014
Schools having 'traveller assemblies to break down stereotypes'. Sod that. Lets have a Council Tax Bill - what we pay for gypsies to enjoyKatie Hopkins (@KTHopkins) May 21, 2014
Farmers "Welcome" mat for gypsies is a 20 tonnes slab of granite you can't get caravans over. They have the right idea.Katie Hopkins (@KTHopkins) May 21, 2014
All the big love for gypsies! I would enjoy seeing how fast that love disappears when they rock up near your house. 'Janner-Rose' 'Brandon'Katie Hopkins (@KTHopkins) May 21, 2014
The Caravanning Club would like to make it clear that they are not travellers. Travellers don't pay for their sites. Key differentiator.Katie Hopkins (@KTHopkins) May 21, 2014
Brit justice - provide Hamza with house, home and lifestyle. American justice - slam him in a cell, hope he rots before dinner. Splendid.Katie Hopkins (@KTHopkins) May 21, 2014
Dear Mrs Hamza - take your terrorist kids, your thieving sons and your revolting daughters and GET OUT. You are not welcome in our country.Katie Hopkins (@KTHopkins) May 21, 2014
I will defend the rights of tax payers, hard workers and those trying to contribute to this Great Nation. That is not racist. That is rightKatie Hopkins (@KTHopkins) May 21, 2014
One can only assume she sat back in her pyjamas, patted herself on the back for another successfully attention-grabbing diatribe, and watched in eager anticipation for her phone to ring.
Sadly, we doubt Good Morning Britain actually called.
