Ann Coulter has long been called America’s Katie Hopkins and Katie Hopkins has likewise been regarded as the British Ann Coulter. Why? They hold extremelhy similar views and confrontational styles. They frequently retweet and support one another.
Until their infamous meeting at Politicon, some jokingly pondered whether they were the same person.
Katie Hopkins – British Ann Coulter (Alt-Right)
Like Coulter, Hopkins expresses racist views and also regards herself as a courageous heroine.
Here are a few lowlights from Katie Hopkins (whose ideas are highly congruent with those of Ann Coulter):
- Tweet: “Dear black people. If your lives matter why do you stab and shoot each other so much”
- “I hear cries that he is a blithering idiot. I have often been called a deranged fool. But if this were true you could ignore me, ignore us, imaging the two of us shouting naked at the rain. It’s because we articulate sentiments repressed by the politically correct consensus that we have a voice”.
- “I asked fair questions and I think it’s important that someone has the balls to speak out.”
- Tweet: “Little sweaty jocks, sending us Ebola bombs in the form of sweaty Glaswegians just isn’t cricket. Scottish NHS sucks.”
- Column (4/17/15): Hopkins compared migrants to “cockroaches” and “feral humans” who are “spreading like the norovirus.”
Like Coulter, Hopkins engages in fat shaming:
“Would I employ you if you were obese? No I would not. You would give the wrong impression to the clients of my business. I need people to look energetic, professional and efficient. If you are obese you look lazy. To call yourself ‘plus size’ is just a euphemism for being fat. Life is much easier when you’re thinner. Big is not beautiful, of course a job comes down to how you look.”
Like Coulter, Hopkins is misogynistic:
“I think women are really vicious in the work place, they’re really jealous, really competitive. Women are emotional, they cry in toilets. The sisterhood only extends as far as the kitchen door. Men talk in logic and rational terms, they don’t squark and make a noise.”
Like Coulter, Hopkins hates feminism:
“Women don’t want equal treatment, they couldn’t handle it if they got it. It’s a tough world out there. What a lot of women are actually looking for is special treatment. What women need to realise is that they have to toughen up.”
Like Coulter, Hopkins is obsessed with white genocide in South Africa (but not the genocide of other races or, even, of Christians in the Middle East):
“My kind are being slaughtered. Your kind are theiving farms and failing. Your kind turned the breadbasket of Africa into a barren wasteland, less fertile than @Julius_S_Malema”
Hopkins called for a “Final Solution for Muslims,” not dissimilar to Coulter’s two-decade-long jihad against Islam (remember, Coulter wanted to kill all of them!):
“Yeah, though Hopkins started off as a conservative and, over a relatively short space of time, became a fascist. She’s called for a ‘Final Solution’ for Muslims (that’s how she lost her radio job) and described migrants as ‘cockroaches’.” [[Coulter has frequently called immigrants “cockroaches.”]]
Like Coulter, Hopkins is a provocateur:
“Provocation for provocation’s sake. No wit. No humor. No intelligence. So yes, like Ann Counter without the LBD.”
Naturally, the Left despises these two individuals just as they despise the entirety of the Alt-Right. (However, the Left often lumps in mainstream conservatives with the Alt-Right, failing to distinguish between the two.)
