It seems like forever since the distasteful narcissist Katie Hopkins has made an appearance on NMi. We had been waiting for news about that reproductive organ she apparently grew on her forehead but sadly that turned out to be a lie.
However, because idiocy tends to promote itself we can report on a protest made by the students of Brunel University.
When Katie Hopkins was invited to speak to the students on the subject of the welfare state they decided the best way to make their feelings known was to stage a mass walk out.
Depending on who you believe this uniquely interesting protest was organised on social media. I mean how else do those who feel threatened by an idiot organise themselves nowadays?
That’s right, the students formed a group on Twitter which then tweeted everyone in the group at just the right time. “Ready… steady… GO… walk out everyone.”
And so it came to pass. On Twitter’s cue all the students stood up and walked out, leaving Mrs Hopkins to talk her nastiness at their empty seats. Long live the smart phone!
The president of the Student union, Ali Milani justified the students protest by saying;
“The inclusion of Ms Hopkins has been met with widespread outcry from the student body and the Students’ Union.
It is important to note that the conversation at no point has been about banning Ms Hopkins from speaking on campus, or denying her right to speak.
It is instead about saying it is distasteful and incongruous for our University, as part of a 50th celebration event, to provide a platform to someone who adds nothing to the intellectual or academic discourse and an individual who publicly utters such overtly bigoted views.”
Hopkins has yet to comment on her latest embarrassment but thanks to YouTube this protest will now serve as a life time sentence for the social media narcissist (see below).
No matter what your take on social media our universities are now the testing ground for the social changes that we’d like to see in society.
The days when we imported foreign students to do all our thinking for us are gone. We like to pretend that they’re not but thanks to social media we can clearly see that our students are no longer thinking about getting laid, trying to get laid, or not quite getting laid.
No sir. They’re thinking about social change.
What is social change anyway? What does it mean? How is it brought about? Some would say that social change is brought about by newspapers, but is it? Really?
Seriously, it seems to me that the Fourth Estate serves but one purpose today. To bring us embarrassing erotica about reality stars who nobody has ever heard of or to act as an unholy forum for bearded monsters who want to announce how many infidels they’ve just sent to hell.
For me at least the newspapers are unfit for purpose, lost their raison d’etre. So who are we going to rely on to advance the social changes our society so badly needs? These students? Social media? Katie Hopkins?
Whoever is asking these questions firstly needs to ask if it could it get any worse than with the Daily Mail accommodating Katie Hopkins and her narcissistic articles. All I have to say is about that is…. please stop Daily Fail, your columnist is nothing more than an oafish mouth piece for all that is selfish and hateful in our world.
I guess you’ll have to ponder these questions for yourselves but I can’t help but feel that we are all at a crossroads right now. Standing there bleeding and confused.
Let me know when you’re done pondering then I’ll be able to stop posting articles about Katie Hopkins and her obnoxious opinions.
In the meantime enjoy watching our students making their feelings known.
