Katie Hopkins: Democrats Pander for Muslim Votes
Barry Nussbaum: Hello, and welcome to ATP Report. I'm Barry Nussbaum. We are back with Katie Hopkins all the way from the United Kingdom. Katie is a commentator, an author, an expert on all things in Europe, especially Islamic Jihad, immigration, and so on. She's a friend of President Trump. She's been on the news in the United States with Fox and other networks. And she has a book out called Rude, which I urge you to check out. Katie, welcome back.
Katie Hopkins: Thank you very much for having me back. It's a pleasure to be here.
Barry Nussbaum: Ok, great. So let's continue our discussion, and let's start off with Europe and Boris Johnson. He seemed when he was running to be somebody who was quite vocal about Brexit. In other words, the UK leaving the European Union. And he had very strong opinions on open borders and unfettered immigration into the United Kingdom. Has that changed? What's his current stance?
Katie Hopkins: I guess I need to describe it a little bit like a marriage. And I say that because I have asked Boris Johnson to marry me once when I met him. I'm a massive fan of his. He said, no, disappointing. But if we were married, I'd say that we've had our honeymoon period with Boris Johnson. And believe me, the honeymoon was fantastic. I'll go there in a second. And now we're into the bit where I'm wondering, did we do the right thing? Did we marry the right guy? Where has he gone? Bear in mind that Boris Johnson is a brilliant individual. He speaks Latin and Greek fluently. He can recite Homer's Odyssey from memory as Lord Mayor. As the mayor of London, London was really in its heyday. It was a great time for Britain. And when we reelected Boris Johnson on the 12th of December 2019. He hit that parliament building, he threw out all the remainers that were stopping Brexit from happening, and he said, we will get Brexit done. And he was that guy, and he took no prisoners. He said everything we wanted to hear, but he acted it as well. He went to Europe, and he told them, we're not dealing with you, and we're leaving. And we were leaving. And it was just a joy. He was the hero I waited my whole life for since that time. But something happened to Boris during Corona, COVID. To start with, we were looking very hopeful with Boris. He wasn't willing to lock down for Corona. But then something happened to Boris Johnson. And almost overnight, he became a puppet of the science. And Americans will understand what this is like with Fouci when we start following the science. For me, the science is the kind of brute squad of the leftists. In my country, the science is the socialist worker, and it is Marxist. That's all the people who don't want us to succeed. So Boris seems to have really backed away from being strong Boris, and he's now a much-weakened version of himself. And we're all wondering, where did Boris go? What happened to Boris Johnson?
Barry Nussbaum: Well, it might have been he got very ill. But what about immigration? What's Boris's stance on this open immigration policy that I understood when he was running was not going to be the policy anymore.
Katie Hopkins: Yes. So when he was running, he was going to get rid of open doors, shut the borders, and he talked of a points-based immigration system, much like Australia, something we've been asking for for a very long time. Over the period of Corona with COVID and bills going through Parliament with COVID, Boris quietly took that points-based immigration system bill and popped it on a shelf while no one was looking because a lot of our workers in our socialized health care are from overseas, they are minorities. They are from places that would have been affected by the points-based system. He thought it would be politically a poor decision to push forward with that. And so Corona has not only disrupted lives and how people live and jobs and the economy, but Corona has also disrupted bills which were essential for trying to reestablish some idea of what Britain might be in the future. And so that's also been a very poor thing that we've seen. Boris hasn't carried through with that bill right now.
Barry Nussbaum: In regards to that, and you and I have discussed this before, what are the implications of open borders and unfettered applications where everybody gets in? You've talked about free housing, free medical care, free whatever you want, whether you're legal or not, you can stay as long as you like, and you don't have to be part of the British culture. What does that mean for the future of Britain?
Katie Hopkins: It's not something I talk about much, but being a mother, I'm not very motherly by nature. I have become far more male, really. But I have three children, 16, 15 and 12. And as a mother, if I want to ring a doctor to get an appointment, a doctor's surgery, I need to be ready when that opens at eight-thirty. I need to be on the phone. I need to know the number, and I need to be able to keep redialing it to try and get through to try and get an appointment because, by the time I get through, they're all gone. If I want to get my child into a school, a local school just up the road, I have to campaign and lobby my way round because, as a white Brit, I'm at the back of the queue. Because if you are a minority ethnic or asylum seeker or on welfare, you're at the front of the queue. So every time things are being weighted against me as a taxpaying national, and all newcomers go to the front of the queue. And I suppose a good example of that is a city in the north where these migrants are pushed into those homes. Some British nationals have found out they cannot get a school place for their child because the asylum seekers get the places first and have very, very large families. So we are not only forced out in a sort of emotional way, we're forced out in a way that is where we are competing for resources like doctors or schools. We are forced out of those places, too. And meanwhile, of course, we pick up the tab. So we are this sort of eternal laughing stock being laughed at by the very thing that the left would have us welcomed with open arms.
Barry Nussbaum: Well, that sounds horrid. However, there's a corollary to the states. Here, obviously, we have a constitution that is very strict on the separation of church and state. A public school, I mean, a non-religious public school is not allowed to teach religion. And yet the Democrat leading politician in the United States, Joe Biden, who is their presumptive presidential nominee and will run against Trump in the fall, came out this week and said he wants Islam taught in the public schools. What do you make of that?
Katie Hopkins: For Biden, of course, strategically, that's a very smart play. He's following down the route map that we have set out for him. And the truth is, of course, here, if demographically by 2030 Muslim births outnumber births to all other, then the only way you are going to achieve political power in the UK after 2035 is by winning the Muslim vote. Biden is planting early, but he is, and the Democrats are the home of the Muslim vote. Here in the UK, the Labor Party is already well down that path, so they will rely on the Muslim vote. The Muslim vote is Labor, and it's the reason there is such a problem with anti-Semitism in the Labor Party. And Democrats will have this as well because no politician can afford to defend Jewish diaspora because you don't want to upset the Muslim vote because you need the Muslim vote. It's a very dark path. And having spent a lot of time looking around at the fall of America in terms of places like Michigan, Dearborn, I've spent time inside that mosque at Dearborn. You can see the Democrats are already very aware of where their future votes will come from.
Barry Nussbaum: I think you're right, and it's horrifying for us in America as it is for you in Britain. Thanks for joining us on ATP Report today, and a very special thank you to our friend Katie Hopkins across the pond in the U.K. Katie, tell people how to find you again, please.
