The story also featured in the local paper, the Portsmouth News, who felt the accusations serious enough to splash it over their front page on 16 March.
Oddly PNW had received an apology from Clarke, 45, for making the comments, shortly after running their initial story, so were somewhat bemused to read the web of dishonesty he presented to the local press as his defence, claiming his account on the Facebook social networking site had been hacked. As PNW revealed in their previous story, not only had he already apologised for the racist and homophobic comments that he then went on to deny, he also has a long history of activity in the far-right EDL, which he also denied. PNW published proof that he could not deny, exposing his big fibs.
Following Portsmouth Nazi Watch's further revelations about Clarke, he then bombarded PNW with emails and messages, addressed to "Mohammed" [and he claims he isn't a racist] and making threats to the editorial team at Portsmouth Nazi Watch. Amusingly one such post even stated that "Steve is a good man"...which he then signed Steve Clarke.
Considering he bragged at the time of making the original offensive remarks "charged me and see if I care" he has now been charged...and now does appear to care.
Please be aware that making bigoted comments online is neither big nor clever and can get you into serious hot water. Don't do it!
