New UK musical calls for “the Assassination of Katie Hopkins” — so The Rebel pushes back!

Rebel Staff

Tonight, at the Theatre Clwyd in Wales, the press will gather to watch The Assassination of Katie Hopkins.

This new musical has been billed as an attempt to explore the politics of outrage in the age of social media, and has received huge attention from the liberal press and the state broadcaster, finding the musical’s title to be in jolly good taste and hugely entertaining.

In fact, The Assassination of Katie Hopkins also benefits from state funding. Which is a curious way to spend taxpayers cash at a time when we can’t afford hospitals or police.

Katie is the target of serious death threats. Two jihadis were sent to prison in 2017 for plotting to behead her, having practised on a plastic dummy with a hunting knife.

The Metropolitan Police confirmed a risk to life against Hopkins. So there are obvious questions to be asked.

Is a play calling for The Assassination of Katie Hopkins acceptable?

And given a confirmed risk to life, isn’t this rhetoric incitement to violence?

Perhaps it is deemed ok because Katie is a white Conservative? What would the response be if the name was changed, to a female Labour MP?

Or a Muslim mayor...?

To pose these exact questions, and in a public display of support for Katie and the work she does, the Rebel team sent a digital truck around the streets of Central London and the Theatre Clwyd in Wales in a public display of support for Katie and the work she does.

Sometimes to challenge the narrative, we have to get amongst it ourselves, and arguably our digital truck is a blunt tool to achieve this end.

As Katie says, being a white, Christian Conservative puts her right up there "on the endangered species list with the black rhino. Only he has an advantage because he is black."

If you would like to help support our work and help cover the £2,000 costs of the truck and fuel, please CLICK HERE to donate. We have made these costs completely transparent and all donations are subject to our “pay it forward” policy at www.TheRebel.media/trust.

Thank you for engaging with our campaign!

So John Wick don’t stop there and leave us all hanging. I know you say your opinion is absolute and final and no discussion would change that as you say your insight is not debatable but please tell us when Katie Hopkins has been a racist hateful bigot.

Charles, Drive-By-John doesn’t deal in facts only quick and fast accusations without supporting evidence.

John Wick commented 2 days ago
“Well she is a horrible person in addition to being racist, hateful and a bigot – this is not debateable.”
So John, what is racist about her not agreeing with Islam and Muslims? You are probably too stupid or ignorant, intentionally, to realize that neither is a race, so it is impossible to be a racist to disagree with them, absolutely impossible. Why do you think the feds will not define the newly created word Islamaphobia in M103, since it is not a word, and there is no phobia or fear, and Islam is not a race, it is an ideology at best and I am not afraid, nor is Katie, and she has real death threats against her, on record. You are a fool and it almost sounds as if you wish the death of a lady who disagrees and states it, as is her right, in freedom of speech, some the feds are trying to take away. So, that would place you in agreement with them, and as such, you will not be free to spew your crapola.

Joe Boudreault comments that: “A handful of pedestrians may notice this but that’s it. They will raise an eyebrow, then keep on keeping on living their lives as if nothing matters. Same old same old.”

Not at all! This is a sign that TheRebel.media, based in Canada, is willing to shift overseas. The language and the tactics of this outlet are probably more suited to certain people in the UK.

Not “a handful”, but plenty.

I am glad that TheRebel.media has chosen to focus on the United Kingdom.

The petty reporting on Canadian news stories made The Rebel seem parochial.

With no support from so-called Canadians, Britain can make a home for Rebel readers.

Hey Martin, I spent nine years in the REME, not in the war time though, I was lucky and spent six years in Hong Kong, a holiday camp. Royal Electrical Mechanical Engineers, trained as Infantry first then did Vehicles before upgrading to Helicopters. Didn’t know you had to fly the things though, so ended up as a Mechanical Jockey flying the Infantry in to hell holes in Borneo.

I don’t understand how the British government went so far down the tubes regarding the Muslim and Islamic ass kissing that goes on by the politicians and especially by the police.
What the hell happened to the country of my origin, the country of my forefathers who fought and died for Britain? My own father fought against the Japanese during the second world war with the R.E.M.E’s.
What happened to England?
I couldn’t even believe that the people of London elected a Muslim Mayor. A Muslim whose only agenda is to destroy London and everything British, everything English. How did that happen and why is it still in existence?
If a great country like Britain can be brought down like that, what does one think will happen to our Canada? Especially with the despot we have as PM?
commented 2018-04-28 17:20:20 -0400
I am, not totally shocked. UK is so far gone, I don’t see a way back from the brink. It makes me thankful that America told Great Britian to kiss it. That’s probably what it’s going to take. The gun laws there are such, that an armed insurrection is nearly impossible. Sucks to be a UK. citizen.

Arghhh! Me mates … time to file a “hate-speech” lawsuit! For Millions of pounds! Calling for/ depicting the assassination of a living citizen is beyond hate-speech, it is terrorism/ contemplated homicide. Billboard is nice, but largely ignored.

I believe the Home Secretary Amber Rudd would receive more truck attention, as she is the Mad Dog that makes the draconian internet laws in the UK.
commented 2018-04-27 18:33:16 -0400
Very good, so far. But what is the rest of the story? Did the police stop the truck? Was Khan aware of this and if so what was his reaction? Were there any members of the public asked about this? It’s not enough to show a short video of the truck in Trafalgar Square without explaining what if any reactions it provoked. Otherwise it’s a bit of a damp squib and I wonder was it worth £2,000?
commented 2018-04-27 15:30:18 -0400
Europe, indeed much of the world is now being governed by traitors and cowards who are willing to see evil prosper at the expense of everything we hold decent and good, and I can’t help thinking we may be too late to stop them. For as long as enough people remain duped by the establishment then we shall continue to hasten along this road to hell.

Good point. We should always ask these leftist loonies to provide at least one example of real hatred/bigotry/racism in support of their accusation.
Not long ago john w(d)ick even called me a hateful racist person, although I’m a non-white immigrant who believes in Canadian nationalism, whereas in his comments he himself displayed a pretty narrow view of non-white minority in Canada.
Leftists have no basis to call people racist nonetheless because of their skewed mentality I guess all leftists/liberals see white, conservatives (or whosoever believes in the merits of western culture) as racists & bigots while non-whites are always the victims/oppressed souls ready to be liberated from the shackles of western culture by these hypocrites.

You also say she is a horrible person though I would be willing to bet you are a lying little leftie who feels uncomfortable with hearing the truth. Go back to bed and pull the duvet over your head so you can insulate yourself from the rest of the planet that way your feelings won’t get injured.

All in the name of free speech & individual rights it’s okay for liberals/leftists to stage a musical calling for ‘The Assassination of Katie Hopkins’, even funding the show with taxpayers money.
However, for the same British liberals it’s punishable crime for a high school student from West Sussex who “had the audacity to type Donald Trump onto Google on his teacher’s computer, which resulted on his being excluded form the school for rest of the day. Apparently he was ‘inciting hatred towards minorities’.”

Hey Dip Wick and Jack ass J Kelly thanks for the $8 a month you donate to the Rebel . You are almost as funny as the top 10 things you don’t want your PM to say . It’s always funny to see how a real nut reacts to important issues . Name calling is about a grade 1 equivalent . You seem to hate Canadians as much as Trudeau .

Just shows the hypocrisy of the establishment. OK for a play about the murder of a feisty white women but outrage if it had been the Muslim mayor on the receiving end. Where is the equality?
commented 2018-04-27 13:10:39 -0400
This is utterly disgusting. Katie may be outspoken and say some extreme things, but like anyone else, she has the right to say her opinions, whether you agree with her or not. As this article rightly points out, if the play was called something like ‘The Assassination of Sadiq Khan’ or ‘The Assassination of Diane Abbott’, there would be so many people demanding that the play be shut down for ‘inciting hatred’, so why should Katie be fair game? A blatant double standard if ever I saw one.
commented 2018-04-27 12:51:52 -0400
I think it would be useful to get hold of the script and then report them to the police and demand that charges be laid against them for inciting hatred and/or whatever may be appropriate. Three australians were recently charged for pretending to behead a dummy at a mosque protest 18mnths after the event.
