Apparently she's left LBC Radio with immediate effect - cleary said something obnoxious (probably something over Manchester with it being so recent).

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-40057165

To be honest I don't follow her work (tweets, newspaper articles, etc, etc) and I'm not interested why she's gone.

She made her name on The Apprentice a while back and she clearly has a good brain in her head.

The reason for the post is that I just don't get why people take any notice of these high profile wums - and thus make them high profile in the first place?

Why do people hang on Hopkins words and views and react on them - she says them deliberately just so they react - and gets paid good money to get people tuning into the radio or buying the paper - just to see what shite she's spouting today.

She's far from being alone in acting this way - Piers Morgan, Russell Brand and plenty other attention seeking narcissuses do the same - and folk line up to tut tut at what they say and respond by tweeting back or venting on other social media.

Surely the best way to get shut of wums is not to bite, let them rant to their hearts content but don't respond - they soon blow themselves out.

I guess that will never happen though as you can see multitudes of people doing the same thing on a much smaller scale, ranting away on say twitter, rocking up tens of thousands of tweets yet with few actual followers.

Who really gives a fuck - yet many do?

Why is that?

Because people like her are dangerous.

Not everybody is playing with a full deck and when they hear or see or hear someone in an apparent position of authority on the TV or radio spouting disgusting, racist bullshit like Hopkins does (she got potted for calling for a "final solution to the Muslim problem"), they think it's ok to do the same.

So they do.

And innocent people get hurt as a direct result.

And if you don't get that already, there's really no point continuing this discussion.

I take it that this is in relation to her "final solution" tweet?

When did people on this site stop reading the comments from other contributors before posting their own?

I mean, I can appreciate that it's tiresome to have to wade through, erm......one comment to get a fuller picture of the discussion, but you don't get anywhere in life without putting the effort in...

Clearly we are all not as clever as you.

Or maybe you simply think you just know it all.

Somehow better than the rest of us.

I could have sworn your comment wasn't there when I posted.

FFS...how old are you, 6?

I raised a legitimate point about how the vast majority of right-minded people would instinctively appreciate why people like Hopkins are dangerous and you just came back with an ad hominem dig about me.

Grow the fuck up.

Your public twitter account includes 'ballbag' in its name and you accuse me of being 6 and telling me to grow up!?

Look to yourself first mate before pointing any finger.

Have to agree with Bread on this one. She knew exactly what she was saying,and the response it would receive.
It's easy to poke fun at Hopkins and her ilk,but we ignore the effect they can have at our peril.

She's been allover Twitter today posting supposedly supportive emails from people bemoaning the fact that she's been sacked from LBC for being a racist cunt.

No independent confirmation, no context, no actual proof that they're real emails - Just the nasty big nosed cow's word that they're genuine.

"I'm 90 and nearly dead and I'm thankful for that fact because the Britain I grew up in is full of Pakis now and I can't wait to die" kind of shit - Seriously, google it.

But that doesn't matter anymore, does it?

Because if you put it out there on social media, it becomes "Fact!" and "The Truth!"

Bullshit.....

And that was my point earlier today when The Headmaster took exception and decided to make this thread about admonishing dissent instead of what the real issue was.

Katie Hopkins has seven hundred and forty thousand followers on Twitter.

I've got 85 - I'm nobody.

And so is she actually, but, hey.....you know. Been on telly and shit....

I have no idea what her Facebook following is because I don't do Facebook and I can't be arsed creating an account to find out.

But it's not without the realms of possibility that it's equally as large, if not bigger.

This woman is clearly so desperate to be famous (and make money as a result, which is obviously the real motivator in all this) that she is happy to peddle her shit to anyone who will give her a platform.

If we continue as a society to facilitate people like Hopkins, Hannity, Alex Jones, Milo Yiannopoulos and, by extension, Trump we are in serious trouble.

20 years ago the internet was a social sidebar. It was a whimsical escape where a dedicated few who were "in the know" could watch porn all day and exchange views on writing code and not a lot else.

Nowadays, it's everywhere in everything we do. 

And fuckers like Katie Hopkins are smart enough to exploit that fact.

The Apprentice is chock full of desperate wannabes in Armani suits they've mortgaged themselves to buy, just so they look the part and can fit in. (Shirts  and undies supplied by Florence & Fred @ Tesco by the way.)

"Sell my granny to get a job, Sir Alan..? Fucking right I will!"

And she is the worst of those desperate fuckers because she managed to get binned but thought "Shit!" and continued to say and do stuff to keep herself in the public eye.

Hopkins would strangle a puppy on live TV if she thought it would advance her career.

I'd just have thought "Oh well. Never mind" and gone home to my family and got a normal job.

Not Katie....


At the risk of invoking Godwin's Law and being dismissed, I'm going to play the Hitler card.

At least that cunt believed the bollocks he was spouting and he may or may not have genuinely thought he was doing the best for the Deutsche Volk.

Hopkins is actually worse because she knows it's all bullshit and the only person who will benefit from her crass nonsense is Katie Hopkins.

Yeah, I just said that Katie Hopkins was worse that Hitler.

And I stand by it.

Because she doesn't care about the implications of her actions. Hitler may have considered the long term stuff and where it would leave him but I doubt it. He was more about short term gains with an eye on setting up another thousand year reich.

I don't think Katie thinks that big.

So there you go, Sluffy.

A proper explanation of my thoughts regarding Hopkins.

That do ya?

Or am I just still going on the internet purely to get at you, you self-absorbed prick?

Wow! Say it how it is, Bread! Agree with you about the other names you mention too, like Piers Morgan, Russell Brand and co.....nasty, hurtful loudmouths who would be well advised to put their brains to work in more positive ways. 

While we're at it, I've seen it suggested that Wanderers might take a punt on Joey Barton, but he's not far behind the other vile, irredeemable creatures that Bread lists, and should not be touched with a barge pole. We've just established a great collegiate atmosphere at the club, which Barton would promptly destroy.

Hahaha!

Mentalist ranting at me when most decent people are asleep in bed.

And all because I wouldn't ban someone he wanted me to do on a tiny internet football forum a couple of years ago!

Carry on pal, it's your life you're wasting away over your petty grudge - not mine.
