Andy Burnham, the mayor of Manchester stated that the attack on Monday was simply “business as usual” in the city. Does anyone see the problem with that? Slaughter should not be the norm!
That comment from the mayor set off a British reporter, Katie Hopkins, and she delivered a message on Fox News that packed a serious punch.

While she claims that she absolutely does not speak for Great Britain, she gave them a memo to unite together, but to unite against terrorism.“We’re making choices in this country,” she said. “We chose to let the jihadi back in and we chose, therefore, for our little girls to be slaughtered. We chose to respect the human rights of jihadis, 3,000 of whom are roaming those streets because there human rights matter more, we’re defending that over our small babies.”
“If this is them losing, we really don’t want to see them winning,” she continued, “We’re tired of buying into the narrative that we’re string and the jihadis are weak. We’ve been knocked down, we’ve been trampled on, and I think the general population is fed up with being treated so awfully, seeing our little ones slaughtered, just to look after the rights if these terrorists that want to kill us.”
She said U.K. politicians are saying “this is business as usual” and “we will carry on as normal,” and citizens are starting to see that’s not the case.
“Theresa May says terrorists will never win. And I think many of us feel like, well, if this is them losing, we really don’t want to see them winning,” Hopkins said. “And I think we can honestly say we don’t stand united now. The only thing we can be united about is that we need to demand action.”
She pointed out that the attacker, 22-year-old Salman Abedi, had reportedly just returned from Libya weeks ago, and he was allowed back in the country despite having been on the radar of intelligence agencies.
Here is her full message. Listen to it all, and listen to it clearly. Hopkins starts speaking about 40 seconds in:
Hopkins is now being referred to as the “British Ann Coulter” on Twitter. What do you think?

@YakovPettersson Katie Hopkins is the British Ann Coulter, but possibly more callous.
