To spoil Katie Hopkins holiday by giving her a piece of my mind

I'm on a family holiday in a Mediterranean resort and guess who else is staying here?

I'm sorely tempted to go up and tell her what a horrible, hate filled, divisive person she is and that most educated and intelligent people in the country despise what she stands for.

Oh my days, the ignorance on this thread.

  1. Google 'final solution' if you've been living on Mars for the past 75 years. 'Can't be equated with genocide' FFS Hmm

2. KH called people coming from Syria in boats 'cockroaches'. Spreading hate is her bread and butter. Do not stick up for someone who bullies society's weakest, most vulnerable members in the national press.
IntheBESTpossibleTASTE · 02/07/2017 21:01

but Lucie, you are hating on people too. You cant grandstand against hatred and then come out with your last post, the two don't really mix. You are not innocent

Just stop, if you want to discuss, people are happy to but you are goading and rightfully getting a new arsehole ripped for the way you are talking to pple

NashvilleQueen · 02/07/2017 21:02

Perhaps you might consider an apology now that you do understand how abhorrent KH's comments were.

Oh my days, the ignorance on this thread

I am just being honest, I had never heard of it. There is no need to patronise?

Maybe they didn't teach this in my school I don't know

PratStick · 02/07/2017 21:04

Inthebest, I would bet money that they did teach it and that you forgot it.

IntheBESTpossibleTASTE · 02/07/2017 21:05

Yes possibly history was never my best subject

MrsTerryPratchett · 02/07/2017 21:08

Maybe history wasn't people's best subject. But a journalist, commenting on immigration and religion, isn't fit for the job if she doesn't understand history.

Cacti · 02/07/2017 21:09

Nah. Don't waste your time or energy.

KH is someone who gets off on being heard above the crowd. By giving her a piece of your mind, you're practically offering her a ready-made podium and mic.

Ignore, pretend she isn't even there.

FannyUmbongo · 02/07/2017 21:09

Oooh are you in Cyprus?

Pagwatch · 02/07/2017 21:10

Umm, that's exactly what she meant by final soloution?

Do you not understand her whole 'show me the bodies' line about refugees?

Badweekjustgotworse · 02/07/2017 21:10

Omg, look up Jess herbst. They're the mayor of some city in the states and came out as transgender a couple of years back. They are dopplegangers for each other.
Go up and introduce yourself am dsy how behave you think they are etc etc and then ask them how to pronounce herbst as you've only read their story online about their coming out.
The attached pic is herbst

How brave, not behave ^^

Cacti · 02/07/2017 21:12

Lucie, no one is 'baying for blood', most posters have advised the OP to leave well alone!

Pagwatch · 02/07/2017 21:12

I was stuck next to Jeremy Clarkson on holiday
He was exactly as obnoxious as you would expect and surrounded by sycophants who laughed at his mouthy humourless crap

Katie Hopkins still worse though

Badweekjustgotworse · 02/07/2017 21:13

Oh and before someone takes that wrong, it'll kill her because of her own notions and bigotry. I'm not suggesting there's anything wrong with being transgender! KH certainly thinks there is though which is why it'll kick her where it hurts

LandofTute · 02/07/2017 21:16

Maybe her comments about ebola being a good way of controlling population and about migrants being cockroaches were misunderstood too?

originalbiglymavis · 02/07/2017 21:19

And she does have odd eyes.

I'm not being all nasty-hurty-cruel for the sake of it here. That's why she caught my eye in the street. I didn't realise who she was until she passed me. She looked smug when I did a did a double take.

She is either a very unpleasant​ person or is playing a hortibke Alf Garnet type character. Either way, the stuff she spouts is cruel, nasty, unpleasant and hurtful, and it encourages those who hold similar ideas to feel justified and able to voice/act on these.

Nikephorus · 02/07/2017 21:22

Could you thank her for her offensive autistic comment in the Daily Mail a few days ago - I am gobsmacked how a man so in touch with his emotions can sound so cripplingly autistic at the thought of taking over at the helm of an institution that is supposed to be the beating heart of Britain
I really did appreciate that one Angry

everthinkyouvebeenconned · 02/07/2017 21:22

You are so wrong

She doesn't have odd eyes. She is dead behind them!

NoSquirrels · 02/07/2017 21:23

No one on this thread has said anything about KH that is as bad as some of the things she's published and been paid handsomely for - utter hatred and every -ism going.

Everyone has agreed the OP should leave her and her child alone, despite the temptation.

She's indefensible, quite honestly. She's not an idiot, she's intelligent. I agree with a PP that she comes across as mentally unbalanced in some way.

midnightmisssuki · 02/07/2017 21:23

Bit rude if you did Confused. Have a lovely holiday - let her enjoy hers.

Pollydonia · 02/07/2017 21:49

As an aside, I have just spat coffee down myself after reading " do you work in Birkenhead Lidl?" Grin

LouMumsnet · 02/07/2017 21:49

Evening all. Thanks for the reports about this thread.

As you can see, we've deleted posts we felt weren't in the spirit of the site.

We're all for free speech on Mumsnet and we're certain the OP started this thread with lighthearted intentions. We certainly wouldn't want anyone to get the wrong idea about it.

However, we also like to think MNers can be fair, kind and respectful towards others when arguing their point rather than resorting to personal attacks or inciting bad feeling. Mumsnet is here to make parents' lives easier, after all, so let's keep it that way please folks.

Peace and love.

donquixotedelamancha · 02/07/2017 21:49

"Bet she's having a cheeky peek at MN right now. She's probably gearing up for some rimming in the near future."

Please don't do that to her OP.

NashvilleQueen · 02/07/2017 21:50

Perhaps you might consider an apology now that you do understand how abhorrent KH's comments were.
