Sunday morning’s edition of Fox & Friends was dominated by coverage of the most recent terrorism in London which left at least seven dead over the weekend.
During the show’s 7:00 O’clock hour, the weekend gang interviewed Fox News regular and Daily Mail columnist Katie Hopkins to offer her thoughts. The always controversial Hopkins, didn’t hold back, blasting Prime Minister Theresa May’s statement after the attack. Hopkins also called for mass internment and deportation of terror suspects.
“What May didn’t do is tell us what we need to hear, and that is things are going to change completely,” she said. “That tomorrow 3,000 people on the watch list are going to be rounded up. We need to hear 650 jihadis that returned to the UK are going to be incarcerated and deported and we need to hear that Saudi backed Mosques and extreme hate preaches and Imams within those mosques are also going to be shut down and reported. That’s what regular British people want to here.”
“We’ve got to get over the political correctness,” said a somewhat shellshocked Abby Huntsman, “I agree with you there.”
“It is time for British people to stand up and demand action,” she said. “We need to start incarcerating, deporting, repeating until we clean this country up.”
Earlier in the program, Brexit leader Nigel Farage warned that persistent attacks would only increase talk of “internment” — like what the United States did to Japanese American during World War II. In her most recent Daily Mail column, Hopkins said she was for it, but told Fox & Friends the government wouldn’t have the strength.
“I don’t think they’ve got the stomach to do that. I don’t think they’ve got the political will to do that.”
Hopkins is no stranger to controversy. The firebrand columnist found herself in hot water after the Manchester bombing for suggesting in a tweet that a “final solution” was needed for the terrorism problem.
