You say Islamist I say Islamic

The difference between words that will get you fired and words that won’t are infinitesimal. If you reference genocide when you are angry at the House of Lords you will keep your job. If you reference it when you are angry at an Islamic terror attack in your country expect to lose your job. The word you put in front of the word terrorism is also fraught with danger. Use the word Islamic terror or Islamic terrorism and you are in big trouble but use the word Islamist instead and you are now acceptable.


Katie Hopkins is to leave LBC with immediate effect, the radio station has confirmed.

The announcement comes shortly after Hopkins said that a “final solution” was needed following the Manchester terror attack that killed 22.

The since-deleted post appeared to call for genocide, her use of “final solution” presumably referring to the Nazi genocide of millions of Jews in the Second World War.

“22 dead – number rising,” she wrote on 23 May. “Schofield. Don’t you even dare. Do not be a part of the problem. We need a final solution #Machester.”

…Hopkins has consistently been referring to “Islamic terror” and “Islamic extremists” on Twitter, phrasing with implications to an entire religion that even President Trump has been conscious to try and avoid.

Though he used “Islamic” while campaigning, during his recent trip to the Middle East his speeches were on the threat of “Islamist terror” (though he misspoke in Saudi Arabia on Sunday and accidentally said “Islamic”).

…Donald Trump thanked Hopkins in December 2015 for her “powerful writing on the UK’s Muslim problems”, describing her as a “respected columnist”

Her “final solution” tweet was not the first time she has referenced the Holocaust, previously saying of the House of Lords: “Frankly, I don’t really mind if we seal up the room and gas the lot of them.”
