Or so the Internet tells me. My Facebook lit up like a rather damp and uber-liberal Christmas tree and the shrieking, maiden aunts who seem to make up the Twitter audience were going mental. Finally they’d got him right where they wanted him “JEREMY CLARKSON IS A MASSIVE RACIST”. Only…well…he isn’t really is he? At least, not as far as I know or you either. Unless you actually know the man and found his stash of SS uniforms and saw a home video of him shoveling rag dolls with yellow stars on them into a bonfire. And if that’s the case, get in touch we’ll make a fortune!
This seems to have followed on from the last “JEREMY CLARKSON IS A MASSIVE RACIST” non story of a couple of weeks back when it emerged he’d named his dog ‘Didier Dogba’ after an ex-Chelsea footballer. Hardly a sign he’ll be fronting the BNP any time soon if you ask me. Of course, to some (those Uber Liberals again) it was a very clear sign he obviously hates black people. But just in case we weren’t all convinced of his Nazi credentials a new story emerged. This time they’d decided they had him right where they wanted him. On camera, on actual video, saying the word that could see him fired from the BBC and, if folks had their way, see him expunged from the pages of history. And what is that terrible word?
Yes, he mumbled. Whilst making an obviously poorly judged piece of comedy by reciting an old rendition of a nursery rhyme he replaced the dreaded ‘N Word’ with a mumble. Despite the obvious context and the fact poorly judged humour has never been a stranger to Mr Clarkson this was obviously excellent ammunition for those that either a) hate Jeremy Clarkson or b) hate Jeremy Clarkson and are determined to find racism everywhere no matter what. There seems a disproportionate amount of hatred from the left for Clarkson and it boggles my mind that people who consider themselves ‘liberal’ would be so quick to attempt to silence the opinions of others. Do I agree with everything the man says? Of course not, but I do on occasion find myself laughing like a drain at some of his observations. I wouldn’t lose sleep over him being fired in terms of the loss to my world of entertainment but I would be bloody horrified to see anyone fired over an allegation which has absolutely no weight behind it. I also find the fact a ‘senior MP’ is calling for his dismissal bloody amusing given they won’t give up the reins of power even when found guilty in a court of law if they can possibly avoid it.
So, there’s no proof Clarkson is a racist. None whatsoever. If you still believe he is a racist based on this story and the ‘evidence’ then I have to say that you’re actually a bit of a moron and you’re cheapening the term horribly. Now, just so people can accuse me of being a Daily Mail reading bigot, do you think we’d see all of this if Kanye West called white people ‘crackers’? Didn’t think so. Remember boys and girls, just because you don’t like someone doesn’t mean you should abandon logic and common sense due to your distaste.
