Katie Hopkins, banned from social media. 

The far right are on the rise. Extremists such as Tommy Robinson have become public figure heads for the far right, both here in the U.K. and the United States. Portraying himself as telling “truths” but playing on people’s fears and demonising groups of people, spreading seeds of hatred and propaganda. 

“Former leader of the controversial English Defence League (EDL), he was sentenced to 13 months' imprisonment for contempt of court after publishing a Facebook Live video of defendants entering a law court. After his release, he was appointed as as a political advisor to the Leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP).” - Wikipedia 

In February 2019, he was banned from Facebook and Instagram for his misuse of these platforms. Please see https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2019/feb/26/tommy-robinson-banned-from-facebook-and-instagram

So what of the controversial Katie Hopkins? Once a journalist for the Daily Mail, Hopkins left the paper after referring to African migrants crossing the Mediterranean with “cockroaches” and calling for gunboats to stop migrants reaching their destination.

According to the Guardian, “Her weekly show on the radio station LBC was stopped after Hopkins posted a tweet about the Manchester Arena attack that called for a “final solution” for Muslims in Britain. It provoked a backlash on social media because of the phrase’s connections to the Holocaust...”.

Like Robinson, Hopkins now uses social media to continue her quest of dehumanising and demonising minority groups; such as Muslims, transgender people, and migrants. 

A tweet this week saw her place blame on migrants - “German family failed to pay its minor debts to the town, including a dog tax Officials seized the family pet, a pug called Edda, and her sold online for 750 euros ($854).NB: Migrants welfare payments in [Germany] will be 21 billion euros through till 2022. Nationals pay the price.”

I am calling upon Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube to: 

1•review Katie Hopkins’ use of their platforms. 2•issue her with a formal warning                  and finally                                                 •issues her with a permanent ban

She continues to abuse a system that lets her post racist and transphobic attacks, that she then deletes, knowing they will be screenshotted, therefore using the system to spread hate speech whilst intentionally sidestepping the rules.

These ideologies have no place in today’s world.
