    I’m glad she feels persecuted. Now she knows what that’s like.

    its appalling that if you constantly express controversial, shit stirring opinions in order to get attention that people give you grief for it. Its exactly like 1984.

    We should be thankful to be alive at the same as someone so modest and self sacrificing.

    Self-immolation at the north pole it is then.

    The corpses of dangerous criminals sewn together, and according to one version I saw, the brain of A B Normal!

    Rutita1 Scum with no integrity, apparently.

    This is how it feels being a fungal waste product. People either love or hate you.

    If you're to quote Inspiral Carpets lyrics, you could at least try to get it right...

    Yeah, no.

    That's an argument based on a false equivalency: the people Hopkins, a privileged media figure with a noticable following, denigrates and smears and those who insult her (where they differ) are not. She's a bully, if she's getting a lot of abuse - well those who live by the sword...

    No sympathy for her at all. I'm glad she's lost out. She deserves to and the people who like and think like her need to see hear and feel that
     
  20. Gromit

    I’m sure Hopkins justifies her actions similarly. Well because they [insert arbitrary reason] it’s fine to do it to “those people”.

    Celebs are fair game. They are asking for it. Look at what they wear.
     
  21. Horus Snacks

    Of course she does, doesn't everyone believe their actions are justified?

    I don't care about her value system, I care about mine and I feel that showin Hopkins some hate, not necessarily all day long forever and ever, is perfectly justifiable. She mongers hate, she gets shat on when she falls from grace (which she hasn't, she now works for Rebel Media spouting her bollocks for dollars on Youtube).

    The best argument in support of Jack Monroe's point is, I think, the fact that whether or not Hopkins deserves to be treated the way she treats others, if we do that, we make ourselves more like her. I don't want to be more like Hopkins.
     
  23. Quite. I am happy to bask in her downfall but actively wishing physical harm on the vile piece of shit is a bit much.

    It reminds me of those who froth at the mouth at the dirty barbaric Muslims who cut off people’s heads. We should cut off their heads they cry and completely meaning it.
    Failing to see how they are wishing to be as barbaric as those they accuse of barbarism.

    Not really, as i said there is a power differential at play with Hopkins.

    I'm not arguing for what should happen, I simply don't care that it does happen - in the case of her receiving abuse. Shr brought it on herself.

    The worst torture for Hopkins has to be being ignored, threats of violence will delight her so counterproductive.

    Sure, but that's a very simplistic approach. She won't ever be completely ignored anyway and I'm not sure she should.
