Jeremy Clarkson - God is an arsonist

You've really got to wonder if Jeremy Clarkson is worshiping the right deity? I mean thinking that Australia is somehow deserving of the calamity that has befallen it in the form of unprecedented bush fires is one thing, but claiming God intentionally likes to cause people and animals immeasurable pain and misery is another.

Today, SBS News reported:

Jeremy Clarkson slammed for saying 'embarrassed' God has set fire to Australia

Former Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson has attracted criticism for claiming that God "didn't want people to live in Australia" so has set fire to it.

In a column for UK newspaper The Sun, Clarkson tried to take a light-hearted approach to the ongoing bushfire crisis, which has so far claimed at least 23 lives.

What is it about Climate Change related disaster that brings out the worst in people who aren't being affected? Clearly Australia burning and people dying isn’t something for the privileged Englishman to joke about.

Clarkson said God created Australia "as a continent far, far away where he could house all his experiments that had gone wrong", before listing the saltwater crocodile, the redback spider and the nation's many snakes as examples.

"He even used this remote outpost to house some of his more ridiculous ideas. Stuff he came up with when he was drunk. Like those birds that can't fly and that otter with a beak.

Why would The Sun give column space to the ravings of a senile old fool? England is actually embarrassing itself internationally by publishing the dribbling inanities of someone obviously suffering from Narcissistic personality disorder. Instead of rushing to print such badly written clickbait they should do the right thing and get Jeremy Clarkson some help.

"And to make sure people didn't go there, he put a huge coral reef on the approaches ... For millions of years, this big, sandy cupboard under the stairs went unnoticed," he said, seemingly ignoring Australia's Indigenous history.

Seemingly ignoring Australia's Indigenous history? Maybe he actually means Aboriginal people as well? I mean it’s not the first time the idiot has been openly racist. This appears to be just another example of his unhinged bigotry!

"But then along came Captain Cook and now the world knows all about Oz and its stupid, dangerous creatures.

Nearly 500 Million wildlife creatures have died (not including insects, bats or frogs) in the Australian bush fires so far. Entire species have perished meaning Australia will never fully recover. Anybody making light of such a large disaster clearly needs a straightjacket.

"Plainly, God is embarrassed. Because he's decided to set fire to it."

What kind of entitled prat claims that God is an arsonist and that Australia somehow deserves to be punished right when they're hurting the most from these record-breaking fires? Clarkson is effectively trolling the entire nation of Australia. So let’s see what the Aussies say in response.
