On the 9th of July Channel 4 broadcasted Littlejohn’s documentary The War on Britain’s Jews. He introduced his documentary on his Daily Mail column, and if you do not want to watch all of it, Littlejohn himself has offered a taste in his column.I have to admit that I agree with Tony Greenstein about Littlejohn as a journalist and about his documentary. Tony Greenstein in The Guardian has stated:
If Channel 4 was seriously concerned about anti-semitism then the last person to present it would have been Richard Littlejohn. This is the same person who said of the Rwandan genocide: “Does anyone really give a monkey’s about what happens in Rwanda? If the Mbongo tribe wants to wipe out the Mbingo tribe then as far as I am concerned that is entirely a matter for them” – which is a direct take from the late Alan Clark‘s infamous remark about “bongo bongo land”.He has also called the Palestinians “the pikeys of the Middle East” and suggested that it was time to “wring [their] necks”. “Pikey” is a racist reference to Gypsies, one of Littlejohn’s pet hates, along with gays and asylum seekers.
