Katie Hopkins Racial Stereotypes

11 July 2012

Radio Scotland interview with an English ‘business woman’ who also appears to be a self-appointed spokesperson for all that is English. In this part of the interview she lets fly at both Andy Murray and a caller who is Welsh and is living in England. You may remember this woman from the TV programme The Apprentice, where her right-wing outspoken views ruffled a few feathers. She is both quintessentially ‘English’ and outrageous in equal amounts – the very embodiment of imperialism that made England what it used to be.

Katie Hopkins from England, sometimes Rupert Murdoch tabloid employee, sometimes television personality, is famous ‘for being famous’ and infamous for racism.

This poem is by British poet Benjamin Myers:

I Saw Katie Hopkins

I saw Katie Hopkins shoplift from Oxfam a porcelain figurine of a Newfoundland dog with a wooden barrel on its back in which you put brandy.

I saw Katie Hopkins asleep in a plate of chicken nuggets at a Little Chef; she was wearing a Cats tour jacket and one glove.

I saw Katie Hopkins urinate in a homeless war veteran’s begging cup from a distance of six feet.

I saw Katie Hopkins scratch a swastika onto a Mothercare billboard at the bus stop.

I saw Katie Hopkins shove a cork in a dolphin’s blowhole at SeaWorld.

I saw Katie Hopkins go berserk at a Ghurka for wearing a burka.

I saw Katie Hopkins getting a tattoo of a lethargic gryphon.

I saw Katie Hopkins selling used batteries at a carboot sale.

I saw Katie Hopkins buying Jethro DVDs from the garage.

I saw Katie Hopkins jogging with James Delingpole.

I saw Katie Hopkins eating worms at Kew Gardens.

I saw Katie Hopkins trying to set fire to Rochdale.

I saw Katie Hopkins force a child up her chimney.

I saw Katie Hopkins alone on a waltzer at 11am.

I saw Katie Hopkins grope Rod Liddle in Aldi.

I saw Katie Hopkins punch a newborn lamb.

I saw Katie Hopkins playing bass for UB40.

I saw Katie Hopkins smash a pint glass.

I saw Katie Hopkins snorting Bisto.

I saw Katie Hopkins’ rotten soul.

I saw Katie Hopkins laughing.

I saw Katie Hopkins sobbing.

I saw Katie Hopkins alone.

I saw Katie Hopkins.

Not that one.

Mumia Abu-Jamal in prison hospital

Mumia Supporters Challenge Wall Street Journal

28 February 2014

Supporters of wrongfully imprisoned Mumia Abu-Jamal try to deliver letter to Wall Street Journal Editorial Features Editor, Mark Lasswell, correcting their published opinion article by Pat Toomey, Republican senator from Pennsylvania, and Rufus Seth Williams, Philadelphia district attorney, that attacked Obama’s nomination of Debo Adegbile as Justice Department’s top civil rights official, claiming he defended “a notorious cop killer” when as chief of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund he helped get Mumia off Death Row.

Clearly, Mumia did not kill a cop! Mumia tried to offer assistance to police officer Daniel Faulkner, who had already been shot and downed, who responded by shooting him. The WSJ piece repeats the DA’s bogus claim that 3 cops heard Mumia from his hospital bed confess to the killing when both the attending physician and policeman assigned to watch Mumia as he laid in critical condition maintained he said nothing, AND the 3 cops didn’t come up with that story until 60 days later!

After being advised by building security they could not enter the building to present their letter to the OpEd editor unless they first make an appointment, they try to make an appointment with a cel phone, and when that fails they are directed to the messenger entrance around the corner to deliver their letter, where they first read the letter aloud. Along the way they develop a friendly relationship with NYPD Community Affairs Officer Michael Dugan who agrees to watch a pro-Mumia video with an open mind if they send him one. That suggests the possibility New York City’s new Mayor Bill de Blasio and his new Police Chief Bratton might help get pro-Mumia videos shown at NYC Police Stations. The videos thoroughly set the record straight that Mumia was framed and mistried for a crime he did not commit.

Bob Beckel Earns His Pay As Fox News‘ Clown ‘Liberal’ Racist

11 July 2014

Fox News‘ token liberal host Bob Beckel used a racial slur Thursday on “The Five” to refer to Chinese hackers.

“The Chinese are the single biggest threat to the national security of the U.S.,” Beckel said. “They have been, they will be and they can wait, they’re very patient. You know what they just did? As usual, we bring them over here and we teach a bunch of Chinamen — uh, Chinese people — how to do computers. They go back to China and they hack into us, right?”

Beckel then made a vulgar arm gesture to drive his point home.

From daily The Independent in Britain:

US army platoon investigated for ‘Racial Thursdays’ tradition of soldiers yelling racist insults at one another

Reports claim commanding officer supported tradition as he believed it helped camaraderie

Andrew Buncombe

Friday 20 March 2015

The US army is investigating claims that a platoon where a soldier of Chinese origin took his own life after allegedly receiving racist taunts, has been holding “racial Thursdays” where soldiers hurl epithets at one another without any reprimand.

Reports said officials had launched an investigation into the “tradition”, after receiving complaints from a black sergeant who said a superior officer had supported the practice as he believed it helped build camaraderie.

The Army Times said the platoon being investigated – the Alaska-based 1st Stryker Brigade, 25th Infantry Division – is the group that Pvt Danny Chen belonged to.

Mr Chen, who was of Chinese ethnic background, is said to have killed himself in October 2011 in Afghanistan after what prosecutors alleged was physical and emotional abuse from his fellow soldiers. Eight soldiers were charged following Mr Chen’s suicide.

“It’s degrading to the soldiers,” a staff sergeant who was not identified, told the newspaper. “We’ve had soldiers almost fight over the crap that’s going on here.”

He added: “When I first got to my unit, someone said we should do Racial Thursdays because it’s been a tradition. It’s something they made up where you can say any racist remark you want without any consequences. The platoon sergeant said no, but the shit is still going on.”

The army did not immediately respond to The Independent’s inquiries on Friday. However, Lt Col Alan Brown, a spokesman for the  army’s Alaska command, confirmed to the Army Times that an inquiry was underway.

J.K. Rowling Responds to Rupert Murdoch‘s Muslim Tweet

12 January 2015

J.K. Rowling is not a big Rupert Murdoch fan. After Paris was hit by a recent terror attack at satire magazine Charlie Hebdo‘s offices that left 12 dead, Murdoch tweeted Friday: Maybe most Moslems peaceful, but until they recognize and destroy their growing jihadist cancer they must be held responsible.

Emerson claims city is a Muslim no-go zone

A US news commentator was forced to make an embarrassing apology yesterday after claiming Birmingham was a “no-go” zone for non-Muslims.

Describing Britain’s second city, Steve Emerson told Fox News: “There are actual cities like Birmingham that are totally Muslim, where non-Muslims just simply don’t go in” in comments broadcast worldwide.

Less than a quarter of the city’s one million residents are Muslim, according to the latest census data from 2011.

Mr Emerson later apologised for his “terrible error” regarding “the beautiful city of Birmingham” and suggested the remarks had been down to “other sources.”

Maybe these ‘other sources’ were Emerson’s boss, Rupert Murdoch?

… The clanger prompted lobby journalists to jokingly question a No 10 spokesman yesterday on whether the PM feels safe in Birmingham.

But David Cameron later called Mr Emerson “a complete idiot” and scoffed: “When I heard this I choked on my porridge and I thought it must be April Fool’s Day.”

The self-proclaimed Fox News “terror expert” who described Birmingham as a “no-go area for non-Muslims” has compared what he has gone through in the wake of the comments to waterboarding: here.

Bobby Jindal unapologetic after Muslim ‘no-go zones’ comments. The Louisiana governor echoes Fox News comments in a prepared speech for a British thinktank and later defends them on CNN as ‘speaking the truth’: here.

President Obama has enraged American Christians by urging them not to “get on a high horse” over atrocities committed in the name of Islam. Speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast, with the Dalai Lama in attendance, Obama said people should consider the history of “terrible deeds” committed in the name of Christ before describing violent extremism as an problem exclusive to Islam: here.
