Dear Katie

A lot of my friends believe you should be ignored. You, and the squalid lying rag for which you ‘write’, exist only to perpetuate yourselves and the hate-filled bile you, collectively, insist on vomiting upon the rest of us.

I have, hitherto, agreed. I don’t follow you on Twitter, I certainly don’t read the demented ravings you excrete on a depressingly regular basis and ignoring you has been a pleasure.

That changed, however, when a friend forcefully insisted I read your disgusting, breathtakingly-callous, assault on those fleeing for their lives and who ended up drowning in the Mediterranean scant days ago.

To refresh your memory you wrote: “Show me pictures of coffins, show me bodies floating in water, play violins and show me skinny people looking sad. I still don’t care.”

Well, look at this. Here’s a little girl floating in the water. She is, or rather was, a human little girlbeing. This pitiful wee scrap of humanity had probably been sustained on her terrifying journey by tales of the exciting new life that awaited her. As someone remarked on my Facebook feed, maybe she’s wearing her best dress. Her pretty outfit broken out just for special occasions. Only she never imagined that that occasion would be a water-logged funeral. Not just alone and terrified but actively hated, despised and loathed. By you.

When I look at this photograph all I can see is my beautiful granddaughter and it breaks me. Every fucking time. Imagining her there; dead, floating, alone. This little girl has haunted me from the second I saw this image. I doubt it will ever leave me. I wanted to stop what I was doing and rush to my granddaughter’s side and hug her and never let her go. I cried. More than once.

Anyone with any empathy at all will have had similar feelings. It’s the sort of thing we humans experience frequently. You, on the other hand, are the repugnant cesspit where humanity goes to die.

I’ve heard others say they wish violence upon you. I know that you’ve been reported to the police and others are howling for you to be sacked. What I’d like to do, however, is sit down with your children and read them your article and show them this photograph. And then I’d like to sit and watch you explain to them how you could write such things. But I couldn’t, really. I couldn’t inflict wanton cruelty on children. Unlike you. To sneer, to gloat, to glory in the deaths of children is an act in which only the sickest, most depraved and despicable could indulge.

And there, I suppose, is the real irony of your wretched existence. Your continuing survival partly depends upon the rest of us having the sort of decency and humanity you so evidently lack. And also, to be honest, because dealing with you as you deserve is illegal.

I truly pity your children. They don’t deserve you. No one deserves you. And one day, when you see the detestation and contempt in their eyes, when they look at you as though you’re something they’ve picked up on their shoes – and trust me; it will happen – it’ll still be more than you deserve. In the meantime, let’s hope none of your children ever end their days in terror, pain and suffering because that would be Karmic justice of the most dreadful kind, wouldn’t it?

  1. ….those who advised you to ignore KH were, in my opinion, right. The woman has brain damage, she is severly epileptic due to some sort of malfunction of the front part of her brain. I try not to watch, read or listen to her and if I do I just remind myself it is the incoherent ramblings of a damaged brain and those in the media who give her a platform are exploiting not only her and her disability but also the under educated who are incited by her bile. No one can argue with or humiliate or defeat someone who is damaged and deluded, its pointless, pity her.

  2. Today I read an article by Robert Fisk on how the mass mourning over Prince ignores the 500 African refugees who drowned on the same day in the Mediterranean. It wasn’t the article that interested me so much, it was the comments by readers – including statements such as “I do not cry over illegal immigrants” and “they were invaders”. Invaders! This sort of attitude sometimes makes me think groups like al Qaeda have some justification for their actions against the west.Imagine the staggering hypocrisy that involves destroying Libya and Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, Yemen and Somalia, and then blame the people there for trying to run away.

    • ‘migrant problem’? Firstly, these people are refugees. Human beings like anyone else.
      Personally, I think it’s quite simple, really. When we bomb the shit out of, say, Libya, displace thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands, destroy their homes, murder their families and send them fleeing in terror from the militias we enabled, then we rescue them, save their lives and take them in. We have a moral and humanitarian obligation. To use an old phrase, ‘if you break it, you own it.’
      Or, alternatively, we let them drown. Which do you prefer?

        The picture you draw is as billed – sheer bloody-minded intransigence, but based on little understanding. We have made mistakes, no question. But we are not to blame for the monsters who ran/run Libya, Iraq, Syria etc.

        Libya wanted our help, begged for it, and people like you (maybe not you specifically, but people like you) were saying that we must do something. So we did. And the Libyans themselves showed what they thought of Gaddafi.

        We are not responsible for Isis. These are bad people doing bad things for bad reasons. When we help, we are damned. When we don’t, we are damned.

        The point of withdrawing the patrols from the Mediterranean between Tripoli and Italy was in the hope of discouraging boat people. The patrols being there was certainly encouraging them that they would be rescued. But stopping the patrols didn’t work.

        So now what, Harry? What’s your solution. According to your principle, we can’t just barge into Libya and evacuate half a million refugees. And you would be right. We can’t.

        Attacking Katie Hopkins is a vacuous excuse for the impotence you feel that there is, really, no answer.

Why are they feeling guilty in the first place? Could anyone on here have saved one of those lives? Half a million people trying to cross illegally in boats not fit for the purpose from Tripoli to Italy is a tragedy in the making, on a daily basis. And there’s absolutely nothing we can do about it, apart from declaring war, securing Libya and then running it as a European outpost. No? Don’t like that solution? Thought not. Neither do I.

I don’t even want to discuss Hopkins…she is not worth my time…..although I think extreme pressure needs to be put on media groups to refrain from giving her a platform to spew her venom. Society seems to be losing compassion for the suffering of others. Yes we can raise millions for good causes after watching a few emotional clips on TV but isn’t it easy to donate ten or twenty pounds and then feel you’ve ‘done your bit’.? The thousands of refugees fleeing Syria, Libya, and many other countries being ripped apart by civil war, terrorist groups and ethnic cleansing are desperate to escape the horrors they have witnessed. Why can’t we reach out and help these people when we have so much? God help us if we ever find ourselves in their shoes.

    I completely agree with this and also find Katie’s vile comments on the deaths of these people, abhorrent.
    I personally don’t agree with immigrants in such a large scale coming in to this country but never, ever, would I wish this fate on anyone , adults and children, alike.
    Kate Hopkins is an unadulterated bully with a ‘ Jeremy Kyle’ manipulative, controlling and cruel mentality.
    I was stunned by the extent of her ego when I saw her on Celebrity Big Brother and found it very ‘ telling’ that everything she accused others of doing and being, were mostly how she herself is.
    She has been made famous by the media for being cruel and hateful which for some sad people masquerades as entertainment but she has sunk to new depths of despicability with these comments.
    I can’t believe she actually means these things. How could another human being really mean the things she said.? She obviously thinks she is being clever and controversial but as the man said.. what if those were her children floating on the water?
    What do her children think of her comments? And what do they think about how she professes to feel about other human beings?
    How is she a responsible person to be bringing up children and influencing them with such thoughts and vile attitudes?
    If the media and the public treated her now as she deserves to be treated…. With the same dismissive attitude that she has used on so many of the victims of her insults, she wouldn’t have a platform to spout her venom from.
    It’s up to us all to strip her of her so called ‘fame’ and relegate her back to the depths of talentless anonymity where she belongs .

  26. It may be incomprehensible but if she said she didn’t care, she didn’t care, and though it angers and disgusts us, there’s no point in being angry with *her*. You wouldn’t be mad at a cancer patient, it’s almost in the same vein – she has a sickness. Sociopathy. The lack of empathy or conscience. Some humans just don’t have it, like a very slimy but successful lawyer, or a wealthy but cheating corporate CEO. That’s how they get to the top of their professions, they don’t care about anyone else. In fact, Freud offered that a person without a conscience, without empathy for others, may not fit the exacting description of what a human is. They may be hybrids. To be human means you absolutely must have empathy – if you don’t, it’s easier for you to hurt a fellow earthling because you “don’t care”. A *true* human can’t help but care, deeply.

The person who provided the image, New York-based immigrants’ advocate, academic and activist, Che Brandes-Tuka, has an impeccable reputation and I would be very surprised indeed if he was involved in anything untoward. I’m assured this image is genuine and, in the absence of anything to suggest otherwise, that’s good enough for me.
    However, as one or two have already suggested, I don’t think it actually makes any difference, anyway. Over 500 of the 1700 (so far) who drowned, were children ranging from those just a few weeks old up to teenagers. Whether the image is genuine or not, and I believe it is, it it no way invalidates any of the points at hand.

    Thank you. This article is very balanced in the circumstances. I too find Katie Hopkins’ rants repugnant but I don’t wish violence on her any more than I would wish violence on anyone. However, I have often thought of her children and what it might be like for them to be influenced by her views. I pray for them. As I do all the other children and humanity suffering in this world.

    Hopkins is a ve shell of a being filled with hatred. Hopefully when her days are over. She suffers the fate that befell Jacob Marley. It couldn’t happen to a more deserving person.

  50. Oh yes, Harry, it will happen.
    There will come a day when friends with names their mother doesn’t care for, will teach that woman’s children an important lesson or two. Her poisonous influence cannot taint them every hour of every day. She cannot contain them in a hate-filled media bubble forever.

    Something puzzles me though; the media keep calling her a journalist. Give her a camera and a microphone. And a boat. Show me some journalism, not petty insults paid by the word. She asked to be shown the tragedy, well, show her; send her to see for herself that which she mocks and insults and cover it for the nation. She’ll either crack at the reality of a human tragedy, or she’ll prove once and for all that she’s a bona fide socio-path and pose for a few selfies with the corpses … I wonder what Ricky Gervais would make of that?
