Video: Tucker & Katie Hopkins Discuss Policing Of “Crimethink” Following Manchester Attack

Daily Mail columnist and LBC Radio personality Katie Hopkins appeared on Fox News last night to discuss British police officers’ priorities following Monday’s deadly bombing in Westminster.

Host Tucker Carlson opened the segment by stating that while authorities are investigating the incident, “it’s not their only priority tonight. They’re also keeping an eye out for crimethink on the internet.”

“Those are unapproved thoughts that people might express, including those from Daily Mail columnist Katie Hopkins.”

Carlson went on to summarize Hopkins’ controversial Twitter rant, posted yesterday, in which she urged Western men to “stand up” against Islam and called for “a final solution.”

The tweet in question, which Hopkins promptly deleted.

As The Guardian reports, Hopkins’ tweets wound up being reported to police, who confirmed they were reviewing and assessing them.

“So, terrorists attack an arena in Manchester and kill children and you’re under investigation,” said Carlson. “How does that work, exactly, Katie?”

“I really don’t know anymore here in the UK,” her reply began. “What I can say is this. Certain thoughts you’re just simply not allowed to have.”

“So for me to say that this is no good anymore, it’s not good enough even to say that we can’t carry on as normal, I demand action, I want people to use their anger to say we need to do something to stop this. We need to be deporting these people. Deport the people that are hiding them and get amongst this because this is our little girl, our eight year old. We need to be able to talk like that. We’re not allowed to talk like that.”

Hopkins went on to acknowledge that the words “final solution” were probably not the best choice given their connotation with the Nazis.

“I would not in any way want to use that term and the inference other people may lay on that,” she said. “What I meant was, we need a lasting – a resolution to this.”

Hopkins further slammed the mainstream “we will not be cowed” stance, stating, “we do have a problem,” as evident by the military officials now present on the streets of Britain.

“We brought that war into our country, we brought that war onto our pavements, onto our streets,” she said. “I don’t hear no politicians, still, nobody saying, ‘I am sorry, we were wrong, we are going to change what we have done.'”

“Well of course not,” Tucker Carlson quipped. “They’re investigating you for your tweets. In the country that gave the rest of us freedom of speech.”

According to CNN, the death toll from Monday’s blast in Manchester currently stands at 22.

One of the latest confirmed victims, as The Telegraph reports, is 15-year-old Olivia Campbell, whose parents made an impassioned plea for information leading to their daughter’s whereabouts on TV yesterday.

The UK’s Metro reports that the bomber, Salman Abedi, was known to British intelligence agents. Abedi is believed to have traveled to Syria to train with ISIS, which has claimed responsibility for Monday’s attack.

    It was a poor choice of words but does anyone really think it’s was meant to parallel the Nazi Holocaust? Only those that want to advance the thought that right wingers are all Nazis will draw this conclusion. This is going on the the USA everywhere too.

    “We need a final solution”
    That doesn’t take mental gymnastics. Sad they’re not allowed to express outrage without the police clamping down.

    huh… how many interpretations of “Final Solution” can you think of? poorly chosen or chosen to cause controversy? ignorant, but not a crime.

      Most likely anger. Can you blame her?
      She retracted because she realized it’s a bit too over the top.

      Doesn’t matter. National Socialism (Nazism) is on the rise and have been, at least in Europe, for the last decade or more. The left is pushing it too far. The reactionary movement will inevitably bear elements of Nazism, and the reactionary movement is already in motion. It can no longer be stopped.

          Oh please, yes, we do – finally – need solutions to these horrific problems caused by Islam.
          BTW, Muslims were allied w/Hitler and his heinous final solution. Near as I can see (and I have excellent eyesight) they still are. Wake up.

            I’m not insinuating that she’s a white supremacist, a racist, or any of those things. I don’t think she is at all — in fact, I’d bet she’s just justifiably concerned and angry about what is happening to her country. I’m only saying that she knew what that specific phrasing implied.

            But what does “implied” mean?

            In the West of the Northern hemisphere “cockroaches “implies” things that survive anything/will be the only things to survive nuclear Armageddon.

            And things that appear in vast numbers and eat all your resources, maybe spreading diseases on the way.

            But apparently in Rwanda it means the people you are going to exterminate.

            When she wrote about refugees surviving trips across the Sahara and the Med and flooding into Europe and used the term cockroaches the “liberals” insisted she meant they should all be killed.

            Maybe she knew exactly what she meant and she just meant that she was concerned about vast numbers of them surviving to reach the UK, strip all our resources, and maybe spread some sub-Saharan diseases while they are at it?!

          Oh so now we arent allowed to find a solution because once someone found a solution you didnt like?

          7 10s & 9 you are part of the problem. I’m sure whatever final solution comes about, it will of course include you. Here’s to hoping it involves gas chambers.

          You can be a genius, but you don’t analyse every word and phrase you use, especially not in the heat of the moment!

          And how many times do ordinary, average IQ people, especially using a not so “Smart”-Phone rush off a comment and then realise “they” didn’t “type” what they meant to say?!

          I’m dyslexic, so I take a bit more care than most, and USUALLY take time to proof-read and edit, and I’m still sometimes surprised by what “I’ve” typed.

          Having said that, and even with auto correct turned off, I have actually seen text I’ve typed suddenly replace several word’s I can see I’ve just typed with a well known phrase or saying, which, while related to the words I’d typed, bear no relation to what I was saying?!?!?!

          That’s on an old Blackberry if anyone’s wondering!

          Anyone else experienced that, or is it just me?!?!?!

    how can the government not be accountable for this, the people want this evil cult out of the country, Tories and Labor parties want more to come in this religion is not compatible with our way of life and Islam will not stop until every other religion are dead, so this government should tried for TREASON every else is accountable for their actions i’m sure a clever solicitor /barrister could push this point

    So let me get this right: muslim kills innocent people but the police are investigating tweets? Yep, that sums up the insanity of the world we live in. I guess the bomber must of had tweets strapped to him, pulled the string and KAPOW the words just maimed and killed.

    And is anyone else starting to notice a trend with this fools that kill innocent people? No, I’m not talking about them being muslim. That’s a given.

    The San Bernandino shooter in the US, the gay night club shooter in the US, the guy who ran people over in France and now this guy were all known threats by their countries intelligence agencies. They all traveled (I’m not sure about the guy from France) to a terrorist hot bed and came back. They were being monitored (or they were actually questioned as the case with the Orlando shooter) but somehow they were free to go about and kill people.

    Why wouldn’t our countries take care of these fools before they actually did something, especially since they were all known threats.

    No conspiracy here but it makes you wonder if the politicians don’t want them off the streets. Events like this give them a platform to gain votes.

      It’s like the Mu slim gr oo m ing gangs in the UK, left in peace to as sault and r-pe for a decade by the authorities who actually prosecuted whistleblowers, and tried to prosecute parents of victims, and victims themselves, for “hate” “crimes”!?!?!?!

      All the police are concerned about at the moment is a “hate” “crime” “backlash”!

      If there is one it will be because the majority are sick and tired of being attacked for supposedly being knuckle-dragging, xenophobic, ra cist, Little Englander haters!?!?!?!?

    Katie is on point. The Politicians who will not defend their women and children in the UK are pure gutless cowards. Radical Muslim culture in opposed to western culture and wants to destroy it. Its simple, Do not accept any more Muslim refugees and deport any Muslims associated with or engaged in terrorism. keep the percentage of Muslims in a country low and minimize problems.

    All the police are concerned about at the moment is a “hate” “crime” “backlash”!

    eg From the Somerset and Avon Chief Constable:

    “…..At times like these it’s more important than ever that we stand together as a community and unite against this kind of horrific attack.”

    Updated to a full open letter from him and the Cr!me Commissioner:

    “…….Most importantly, like the people of Manchester, we must stand united and not allow terrorism or hatred to divide us. Acts of terrorism and hate crimes are committed by a small minority who are not representative of local people. This is a time for us all to work closely together and unite against those who seek, through violence and extremism, to intimidate or cause fear.”

    “The events in Manchester have shown a crime motivated by hate at its most devastating. Let us be clear, there is never any excuse for hate crime of any kind. Ours is a rich, multi-cultural community, one to be celebrated and strengthened.”

    “Please join us in working together to keep our communities safe.”

    And from Manchester’s Chief Constable:

    “Ian Hopkins, Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police, appealed for communities in Manchester to “stand together”.

    “Should any community suffer hate crime we will urge you to report it to us,” he said in a press statement this afternoon.

    “More than ever it is vital that our diverse communities stand together – we will therefore not tolerate hate towards any part of our community.”

    In a later briefing he said:

    “We understand that feelings are very raw right now and people are bound to be looking for answers.

    “However, now, more than ever, <b<it is vital that our diverse communities in Greater Manchester stand together and do not tolerate hate.

    Later on, at the Vigil, he, literally, pontificated:

    “As your chief constable of Greater Manchester and as a father I cannot begin to imagine how anyone can carry out such an unthinkable act – murdering 22 people and injuring 59 – and my thoughts, and those of my colleagues, are very much with their families at this incredibly difficult time.”

    Of course he can’t begin to imagine it:

    He’s too busy imagining “hate” “crime” “backlashes”!

    Pity they never said anything about not tolerating hate crime to the bomber, eh?!

    If there is a hate BACKlash it will be because the majority are sick and tired of being attacked for supposedly being knuckle-dragging, xenophobic, ra cist, Little Englander haters!?!?!?!?

      Incidentally, a former regional governor In the most “moderate” Muslim country, Malaysia, has just been sentenced to two years imprisonment for blasphemy for telling Muslims it was OK for them to vote for him, even though he was a Christian.

      He isn’t going to appeal because he fears a Muslim backlash.

      I suppose our Chief Constables fully support not only his imprisonment, but his failure to appeal, as they wouldn’t want to see a backlash, would they?!

      Oh, and even though it’s not actually illegal, hundreds of homos-xuals get lashed on the back to appease the “diverse” cultures there. I suppose they are actually in support of THOSE back-lashes,
