Katie Hopkins - one sick bitch

At it again.
She is one sour cow I wouldn't mourn.

We have nearly the exact same 'Freedom of Speech' rights here in America that Britain does ...so while this is ghastly and beyond the pale for 'sick & twisted' what she did in a way of a 'POLL' - it hardly rates any Legal Action for rule violations!

 
If people are that upset - then sending her their opinion via her twitter account will get their message across or better yet 'DUMP THE BROAD' and quit following her every sick/demented/mental drool.  

BTW - it's been pulled off of twitter ...the image still in the 'Mirror Link' is the only current one that I could find.
However today Chief Superintendent Di Roskilly of Sussex Police said: "We believe we now know who the men are and that they came to the beach together for the day.
"We believe they are all in their late teens and early 20s and come from the Greater London area.
"These men were not fully clothed when they were pulled from the sea but wearing clothes appropriate for being at the beach for the day.
"We have no further reports of anyone else missing from Camber and there are no on-going searches related to this incident.
But in reading the link and the number of bodies that have drowned {been found} at this specific beach - what's the issue here?  Under toe Undertow - strong waves - people just don't know how the hell to swim?

Strong undertow and tide rip parallel to the beach.
I know the area,whilst it is shallow shelving beach,the strength of the full tide during a rip is enough to bowl you over if thigh deep.. These guys probably were not used to bathing in the sea and sadly got caught out.

We have our very own extreme 'WING BATS' that have so many religious supporters they have access to radio stations and even more listening audiences to spew their vile/bile!
Rush Limbaugh - has been doing this for a long-long time;
here's his latest > > >


Rush Limbaugh is currently hawking the idea that President Barack Obama is funneling money to lesbians so they can train members of the LGBT community to become farmers so they can invade and overtake conservative red states.
On the August 17 airing of the Rush Limbaugh Show on the Premier Radio Network, he announced:
“Have you heard about the Agriculture Department’s financial grants to lesbian farmers? What they’re trying to do is convince lesbians to become farmers.”
Limbaugh is attempting to create hysteria in response to the 15th annual Nationwide LGBT rural summit, which took place in Iowa on August 18.
http://deadstate.org/rush-limbaugh-lesbian-farmers-are-being-trained-by-the-government-to-invade-rural-america-or-something/

Besides this vile fake-bible thumper, we have the ilk of Ann Coulter ; now she's very much the same mind set that your Kate Hopkins is ...they could be 'sisters from another mother' and they do resemble one another too Suspect

Surprised

GEEZ...  That Katie Hopkins is one dirt fugly old bag, isn't she  !?!

Despite the obvious repulsiveness of her tweets, and her suspect state of mind, when there have been stories on here previously concerning her obnoxious antics, I've noticed that she did have 2 or 3 fans/supporters back then among our English based contributors on here..

Australia doesn't have 'Freedom of Speech' protection laws but rather "Freedom of Expression", which effectively places more responsibility on the person speaking out; (Though, there is currently a push from groups of far-right politicians and fascists, to replace our current laws with some US style legislation --  so as to allow them more leeway with their hatemongering, and attacking and lambasting innocents, victims and minority groups..).

IT IS possible that police down here may find that they have a little more room to move in addressing such obnoxious behaviours, when compared with their British counterparts..

So there's a influx of weekenders that visit this area but aren't familiar to the rip tide's and just screw it up and die?  Seems to be a rash of young men that are the victims according to what I'd read.  No
Most of our beaches have 'Rip Tide' warning signs posted when the currents are that fierce but we have many beach patrols/life guard/coast guard watch towers in place as well.  Is this a lack of protection on this beach area?

Idea

EVEN WHEN you have patrolled beaches, there are still always people managing to get themselves into difficulties --  and many reasons why singles and groups may get into trouble away from potential rescuers :

Wandering around remote areas, rock platforms, and unpatrolled beaches;
Being there after hours, even at nighttime;
Being there out of season;
Maybe even ignoring signs for closed beaches and dangerous conditions..

Made even worse if people aren't locals;  aren't used to surf conditions;  don't recognise rips and other dangers.         Suspect

Certainly, well aware of the 'STUPID HUMAN FACTOR' for any of these type of locations, despite the very visible warning signs; just that some of what I'd read about the deaths seemed to be when there were loads of humans and zero life type guards on duty!  Just wondering if that was a practice on this beach area or not?

She is ugly ...definitely rotten on the inside anyway.

I said a couple of weeks ago when 3 people drowned in N Wales...we need more lifeguards and land patrols on our beaches.
So far 15 people have drowned in the last 3 weeks in the UK.

My son was planning to go there tomorrow with his girlfriend and her parents. They've decided to go elsewhere. They felt it a little insensitive to go and have fun.

I know what you mean, it certainly puts a dampener enjoying yourself on the same beach where bodies were recently dragged from the water.

Beware of the rip tides....he will be OK.
The beach in Wales where we stay has had a couple of deaths recently....sad, but life goes on and people still flock to the beaches when the weather is nice.

No amount of lifeguards will save people from their own ignorance and idiocy. Perhaps there should be large red lettered signs up warning of rip tides and quicksand. Do you imagine even if there was that people would abide by that? There's always some twits who never do, put their own lives at risk and the lives of those who have to then go and rescue them.

You don't see the difference between irresponsible parents leading kids swimming or rock pooling onto dangerous beaches during long predicted force 10 storms and 5 London lads going for a swim on what is thought a safe beach, along with 30,000 other beach goers, o not the hottest day for 5 years?
Fuck me, Tom,you are more dopey than most on here know and say.

You only start showing sympathy when it is brown skinned people...


Racist!



And you say 30000 people on that beach that day in calm clear conditions ?



But these 5 couldn't see the tide coming in...!?


That must make them pretty stupid too don't you think...!?


Or maybe they were all out of their heads on drugs...!?

Suggest you go away, turn on BBC news or Sky or Channel 4 or ITN or buy any newspaper and fucking read,listen and mainly DIGEST the information.
They drowned as a result of quicksand upto their thighs and we're unable to free themselves because of the strong cross current. They quickly became exhausted, in spite of being good swimmers. They drowned before anyone realised it.
Jeez Tom,are you really that much of an imbecile?
Perhaps it's a shame your father had good swimmers.

Yeah... it's dangerous down the Sea side if you don't take precautions and don't take heed of the warning signs...


But as your 2 threads show... you couldn't care less about all the others... but only care now cos these 5 were brown skinned...

Actually, not true.  In the US, freedom of speech is in the First Amendment of the Constitution.  Under Article 6 of the Constitution, the US Constitution is the highest law in the land (supremacy clause). So freedom of speech trumps all laws that try to suppress speech.

Britain only has only common legislation and no written constitution, meaning that any law giving freedom of speech can be eclipsed tomorrow by another law, taking it away.  Indeed, Britain has a number of laws that abridge freedom of speech:

Wiki wrote:However, [in the UK] there is a broad sweep of exceptions including threatening, abusive or insulting words or behavior intending or likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress or cause a breach of the peace (which has been used to prohibit racist speech targeted at individuals), sending any article which is indecent or grossly offensive with an intent to cause distress or anxiety (which has been used to prohibit speech of a racist or anti-religious nature), incitement, incitement to racial hatred, incitement to religious hatred, incitement to terrorism including encouragement of terrorism and dissemination of terrorist publications, glorifying terrorism, collection or possession of a document or record containing information likely to be of use to a terrorist, treason including advocating for the abolition of the monarchy (which cannot be successfully prosecuted) or compassing or imagining the death of the monarch, sedition (no longer illegal, sedition and seditious libel (as common law offences) were abolished by section 73 of the Coroners and Justice Act 2009 (with effect on 12 January 2010)), obscenity, indecency including corruption of public morals and outraging public decency, defamation, prior restraint, restrictions on court reporting including names of victims and evidence and prejudicing or interfering with court proceedings, prohibition of post-trial interviews with jurors, scandalising the court by criticising or murmuring judges, time, manner, and place restrictions, harassment, privileged communications, trade secrets, classified material, copyright, patents, military conduct, and limitations on commercial speech such as advertising.

In the US, the Court has recognized laws that prohibit speech after the fact, under certain regulatory conditions, but the US strictly limits prior restraint and only certain kinds of subjects (eg, espionage, etc.).

Yeah...well, no, no, I wasn't being critical of your assessment.  But I raised the point because few people recognize the subtle difference.  

Freedom of speech is much more secure in the US, not because it is necessarily legislated in stronger language, or any other such reason related to lawmaking, but because it is anchored in a higher law.  The United Kingdom incorporates Article 10 of the European Convention into the the Human Rights Act of 1998.  That's just another co-equal peice of legislation that can be undone next week, by another law.

It would take a constitutional amendment of gigantic proportions to undo the First Amendment, sometimes called the first principle of the Constitution. Consequently, freedom of speech is much tighter, and more secure in the US.

You see this all the time, but Brits will argue we have freedom of speech, too! The point that it is constitutional in the US is overlooked. We cannot willy-nilly override the Constitution, like it's just another piece of legislation.
