Katie Hopkins is a British journalist and opinion writer who is well-known in the United Kingdom. She’s also very controversial, since she has strong conservative opinions. Real, non-PC conservatism, not the gelded deracinated pabulum peddled by the “Conservative” Party.

It must have been a refreshing change for Ms. Hopkins to come to America and speak at David Horowitz’ annual Restoration Weekend a few weeks ago. A friendly audience, and no risk of being arrested for “racial incitement” — what a difference!
Katie Hopkins is impassioned, witty, vulgar, profound, and inspiring by turns, and sometimes all at once. Here’s her excellent speech from the Restoration Weekend:
