From refugee cockroaches to the miracle of Ebola: Katie Hopkins' most hateful quotes

Gingers, refugees and breastfeeding - Katie Hopkins' most shocking moments

Katie Hopkins has made several controversial comments

Tuesday, October 10, 2017

For most public figures, accusing the Government of a terrorism cover-up would be the most controversial thing they ever said.

But for Katie Hopkins, it's just another run-of-the-mill comment, a throwaway remark that is just par for the course.

You may have read that Hopkins, former Apprentice contestant, erstwhile radio host and all-round neo-con motormouth, has refused to apologise for suggesting Saturday's crash outside the National History Museum was terrorism, and the Government is obfuscating the public to prevent a further debt to London's tourism industry.

She also got a good dig in on London Mayor Sadiq Khan, saying going to London is now "not worth the risk" and claimed the BBC publish propaganda. 

 

Does she have any facts to support her latest diatribe? No, of course not. Who needs facts when you can get by with inflammatory rhetoric and blind prejudice? For Hopkins, facts would simply be an inconvenience, getting in the way of the invective.

As this list of hateful quotes suggests, Hopkins is happy to unload on anyone and everyone - and she never lets the truth get in the way of a good rant.

Gingers

Back in 2013, she hit out at gingers by tweeting "Ginger babies. Like a baby. Just so much harder to love."

We're not quite sure why hair colour would affect someone's love for a child, but apparently Hopkins thinks it does.

Breastfeeding

Indeed, when it comes to babies and motherhood, one could never accuse Hopkins of sitting on the fence.

As well as our red-headed brethren, mothers who breastfeed have also been the subject of fury from the former Sandhurst officer trainee, who once tweeted: "Mammary militia breast feeding en masse in Costa. Puts one off their latte."

In fairness, she did admit “women have the right to breast feed" in a tweet, but the goodwill didn't last long as she completed that sentence by saying "but they don't have the right to put everyone else off having milk in their tea. Put it away girls.”

Ebola

The Ebola outbreak of 2014 was so severe that the UK sent the army to Sierra Leone in an attempt to stop its spread. Yet Hopkins didn't seem to be concerned about people's health. In fact she dubbed the illness efficient.

In a tweet she said: "I rather admire the efficiency of Ebola. From a Malthusian and marketing perspective, it is beyond reproach."

Refugee cockroaches

No list of Hopkins hate would be complete without one of her charming nuggets about refugees. There've been quite a few, but the 'cockroaches' one really stands out for sheer poisonous vitriol.

In 2015, Hopkins said: “Make no mistake, these migrants are like cockroaches. They might look a bit 'Bob Geldof's Ethiopia circa 1984', but they are built to survive a nuclear bomb. They are survivors."

Dementia

2015 was a prolific year for klondike Katie. That year she used Twitter to hit out at those with dementia - which, when you think about it, is like seeing someone lying in agony and going over to give them a good boot in the solar plexus.

However, Hopkins posted: “Dementia sufferers should not be blocking beds. What is the point of life when you no longer know you are living it?"

She then added “Bang me over the head.” Surprisingly, no-one took her up on it.

Anti-feminism

The controversial character has also appeared on Question Time and in 2011 made some, shall we say, interesting remarks on feminism. She claimed: "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."

She's still criticising the feminist movement today and branding those involved a rabble. In May this year she said she attended women's rights marches to understand the views of those involved. Later, at the Cambridge Union, she said “these women were pathetic. They had no one key aim; they had no idea what they were fighting for. They will only ever be a rabble."
