Previously Clarkson made a macabre joke about the deaths of a group of chinese cockle pickers, let`s make no mistake these are not just jokes or humour but they contain a vile repulsive racist message about immigrants and people in foreign countries, it carries a message of white english supremacy.
Clarkson is making more racist statements per week than the BNP, it seems that Clarkson`s brand of vicious racism mixed with humour is somehow acceptable, there is the potential danger of this type of racism being normalised again in which comedians in the 70`s and 80`s regularly used to abuse Black and Asian people, however with changing times most of these vile comedians are now obsolete, but Clarkson appears to be reviving racism by adding humour, Clarkson also uses the media as an outlet to revive this particular brand of racism, the BBC and all media should pull the plug on Clarkson immediately.
The problem is Clarkson has sneaked his way up into a respectable position, he his now showing his true fascist agenda now that he believes that he is untouchable, Clarkson has now become the Adolf Hitler of the media.
No doubt Clarkson will have support in the ranks of the BNP and EDL who could see Clarkson`s statements as being in support of their fascist ideology, this is why Clarkson`s agenda must be challenged by Anti-racists, if Clarkson continues to put the boot in on immigrants and foreign cultures then there needs to be protests against him and the media outlets who suport him, there is no room for racism in the mass media and television!
Clarkson and Lennon
The 51-year-old was slammed after joking about dead Chinese immigrants in his regular newspaper column. He tastelessly compared synchronised swimmers to the 21 cockle pickers who were killed in rising tides in Morecambe Bay, Lancashire, in 2004. The Top Gear presenter was last night branded "out of touch" by anti-racism groups.
The latest outrage came as a picture of Clarkson and far-right English Defence League head Stephen Lennon emerged. Lennon, also known as Tommy Robinson, claims he talked about Islam with Clarkson.
The 28-year-old convicted thug, who also founded the anti-Islamic movement, said: "He knew who I was. We talked about Islam. I don't want to say anything else because he will just get stitched up. But I'm a big fan of him."
The picture is thought to have been taken in September outside a pub in Shepherd’s Bush, west London, where EDL members were holding a meeting.
But last night Jeremy Clarkson said he did not have a clue who Lennon was. He told the Daily Star Sunday: "I have no recollection of talking to this man and have no idea who Stephen Lennon is."

As the Star points out, Lennon does have a record of having his picture taken with public figures (see here and here) in order to falsely claim their support for the EDL. However, it's not difficult to believe that he and Clarkson found they have a lot in common.
