WND Calls Woman The 'British Ann Coulter,' Like That's A Good Thing
Topic: WorldNetDaily

An anonymously written June 9 WorldNetDaily article touts, under the headline "'British Ann Coulter' to speak in U.S.":

Katie Hopkins, the British media personality whose unabashed defense of European civilization makes her a constant target of scorn, is scheduled to speak in central Connecticut on June 19.

A documentary filmmaker, author and columnist, she warned at a forum last year at CPAC that American is in danger of becoming like Western Europe.

“Do not become us. Do not let yourselves fall as the U.K. has fallen,” she said.

There is no cost to attend the event, but registration is required. Due to security concerns, the venue, near Hartford, will be disclosed on June 18 or the morning of June 19 to those who register.

Weirdly, the article never quotes anyone calling Hopkins the "British Ann Coulter" -- that claim only appears in the headline.

Of course, the whole "unabashed defense of European civilization" thing is a dogwhistle for hating Muslims, not that WND will honestly tell you that; it does obliquely hint at it by claiming that Hopkins' talk will address "the immediate threats the mass immigration of people who refuse to assimilate pose to families," specifically migrants with "mostly with low educational qualifications and with a different cultural background." And a quick Google search reveals that Hopkins somehow manages to be even worse than Coulter.

She's so hateful that the notoriously right-wing (and notoriously less-than-factual) Daily Mail dropped Hopkins as a columnist after she called for a "final solution" after a bombing in Manchester by a radical Islamist killed 22 people. She also was ordered to pay $164,000 in damages and legal costs to a food writer whom she libeled by falsely claiming she supported the defacing of a war memorial.She has since declared herself insolvent.

Which begs the question of how Hopkins can afford a transatlantic flight if she's broke. Too bad WND doesn't have any reporters to check that out.
