Some findings on @kthopkins, the fascist and Islamphobic bigot championed by the BJP and its supporters [Thread] 👇
@KTHopkins On refugees: "Show me pictures of coffins, show me bodies floating in water, play violins and show me skinny people looking sad[...]Make no mistake, these migrants are like cockroaches" (Column for The Sun on 27th April 2015)

@KTHopkins Issued racist slurs against the people of Scotland:
change.org/p/chief-consta…
@KTHopkins In her view, women who don't tolerate sexist jokes are "weak"

@KTHopkins Another racist slur against the Scottish people and mocking Ebola:

@KTHopkins The Daily Mail (UK) had to compensate a Muslim family with £150,000 when Katie published a misleading column accusing them of being extremists:

@KTHopkins Posted a tweet disrespecting the father of Aylan Kurdi, the toddler washed ashore in Turkey after a failed refugee escape:-

@KTHopkins Katie was sponsored for education at Exeter by the Intelligence Corps and studied at RMA Sandhurst:

@KTHopkins Since the second half of 2018, Kate has been experiencing a public downfall in terms of a lost column, rising debt against a libel case which she couldn't defend, bullying Muslims. Especially her ongoing financial crunch:

@KTHopkins In May 2019, we see Katie develop an unfounded affinity for India during election season, showering praises on Narendra Modi: "Huge day for India’s Uniter in Chief. Stand by for a huge @narendramodi win. #ModiAaRahaHai" dnaindia.com/india/photo-ga…
@KTHopkins @narendramodi In August, more than two weeks after abrogation of Article 370/35-A, Katie criticises what she calls "leftist media" for quoting Kashmiri Muslims (same argument of her strong admirer Aarti Tikoo Singh)
@KTHopkins @narendramodi Early September 2019, Katie begins questioning Kashmiri Muslim protests in UK receiving focused coverage by the Indian press:
indiatoday.in/india/story/ka…
@KTHopkins @narendramodi The BJP mouthpiece ANI quotes Katie on Kashmir as a "British expert" (lol)
aninews.in/news/world/eur…
@KTHopkins @narendramodi Katie is used as a pawn against Pakistan during the 42nd session of UNHRC:
@KTHopkins @narendramodi On 21st September, Katie thanked her "supporters" in India by quoting a handle --> "sanjaysep16" (more on this handle in subsequent tweets)
archive.is/HQw65
@KTHopkins @narendramodi The account belongs to a troll bhakt of BJP, created in September 2013
@KTHopkins @narendramodi The handles with which this troll has interacted with the most include Ram Madhav (BJP supremo), Subramanian Swamy (BJP supremo) and Tajider Pal Singh Bagga (BJP's social media don). Oh, and also the loyal ANI.
@KTHopkins @narendramodi Key nodes is a handle "ravinder536r" linked further to Republic and OpIndia (loyalist BJP supporters in media). Swamy is also a favourite and Tajinder Bagga. BJP prints all over.
@KTHopkins @narendramodi Nexus with Ram Madhav (BJP supremo)
@KTHopkins @narendramodi Donald Trump and Tarek Fatah are the only two common handles between Katie Hopkins and "sanjaysep16". Of course, this does not discount her other fascist Hindutva supporters.
@KTHopkins @narendramodi Hindu America Foundation and Aditya Raj Kaul (BJP mouthpiece) are among the prominent India-related followers.
@KTHopkins @narendramodi So basically this is the 'daring' lady cheered by @AartiTikoo.
