Tens of thousands of people have signed a petition calling for British CNN host Piers Morgan to be deported from the U.S. over his gun control views. Morgan has taken an aggressive stand for tighter U.S. gun laws in the wake of the Newtown, Connecticut, school shooting. Last week, he called a gun advocate appearing on his “Piers Morgan Tonight” show an “unbelievably stupid man.” Now, gun rights activists are fighting back. A petition created Dec. 21 on the White House e-petition website by a user in Texas accuses Morgan of engaging in a “hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution”

How dare this foreigner exploit his position to attack our Constitutional rights?
I sometimes think that liberals come to their warped views only to satisfy their innate narcissism and ego. Politicians like Obama and celebrities like Morgan the ultimate examples. Truth, common sense, and morality cannot feed their need for attention and self righteousness. The same is true for the people that believe them.
sorry but this just feeds his ego. for anyone who figured Morgan would have some kind of epiphany moment, you´re dead wrong. if anything, it will make him more virulent. if he loses viewers and his contract isn´t renewed, perhaps he´ll ´´self deport´´. after all, isn´t that what politicians tell us will happen to unemployed illegals???
It won´t go anywhere but at least someone is speaking up and fighting back for once!! I am so tired of our side just taking a beating at every turn. We started to fight back with the TEA Parties, but we quickly fell back to our old bad habits and let the TPs devolve into irrelevancy. Our biggest problem is we are not motivated to fight even though we should be. And we always expect others to fight our battles for us. We are a lazy, complacent bunch most of the time.
So, in all of our 50 states, CNN can´t find one person capable of doing interviews? We have to use a foreigner? Bill Shatner does a good interview, I nominate him to replace Morgan. Any other nominations?
Or an arrogant, rude, condescending left-wing British gutter-snipe who got fired for ginning up stories, dumpster-diving for trash on people and ultimately tossed into the gutter only to be picked up by a loser "news" network that barely moves the needle on the ratings scale! This is how you know you´ve reached rock bottom Piers.
This foreign, socialist muck raker should be tarred, feathered and thrown out of the country. Right on to his swishy milquetoast bum. Perhaps A little rendition excursion with some weatherboarding would do him good! How are anyone, particularly a foreigner, question our constitutional rights!
Offsetting all the good that Britain has done in the world was their invention and promotion of appeasement. They and their evil policy are responsible for WW2 as we know it.
Learning nothing from a war that would have finished them except for the intervention of America and the German attack on Russia, the very same cretinous weasels spouting the very same cancerous "truths" emerged from safety postwar and went on to continue to corrupt Britain, but even worse they successfully exported this curse to America.
The Democrat Party is the party of appeasement.
Luckily no one watches CNN, otherwise this poisonous twerp and his rotted theories would be a real threat to our future.
He should still be deported. Send him back to the socialist sewer that his kind have made of Europe.
I went looking for the link to the actual petition and I didn´t find an actual "news media" source that included it in their article. Clicked on a blog and there it was. Clearly, the news media have no intention of actually informing anyone. Here´s the url:
Piers is the type of Englishman who plays a game of pool with some Russians after WWII with the British jet engine as the prize. Of course the idiot loses, but then actually ships the engine to Russia who promptly installs it into the MIG which shoots down American pilots over Korea. These fools previously allowed Russians to tour the engine factory. Stalin thought it was a trap, but sent some ´visitors´ with sticky rubber soled shoes. They analyzed the filings so were ready with the right alloys when they open the gift of the jet engine.
The term ´twit´ hardly begins to describe the smug stupidity of people like Morgan.
If you want to sign that petition (and several other pro-gun ones), you must register yourself at www.whitehouse.gov It is worth it. There is also a petition there to stop anti-gun legislation and to have David Gregory arrested for having a 30-round magazine in DC.
p.s. We created a petition earlier today supporting the US Second Amendment, and you can create a petition, too!
CNN sucks so bad it struggles to keep up with MSNBC. Now more people sign a petition to deport Morgan than actually watch his show comes along. CNN has to start thinking about its future as a company when when more people want to kick CNN´s employees out of the country than actually watch CNN. Maybe, just maybe, CNN will get a clue and figure out is crummy ratings are due to socialist bias media personalities and that isn´t going to change as long as CNN has socialist bias media types on its programs.
The only way he will leave the USA is if he wants to leave. The Obama crew will never deport him, even if he was an illegal alien, until after he would be convicted of committing some sort of violent serious felony, that´s part of Obama´s administrative amnesty policy that is designed to protect most illegal aliens from being arrested and deported. Besides, this Piers Morgan is a big time liberal, not only would Obama not deport Morgan, but he would allow hundreds of additional Morgans into the country and on American TV to spread the liberal agenda. The question that needs to be asked is why is Morgan employed by CNN in the USA when there are a lot of American TV personalities who could do a much better job?
Well, it’s not like there’s any danger of this stuff crossing the porous border into the US… Tepojaco (Mexico) (AFP) – Mexican authorities scrambled Wednesday to find a truck containing “extremely dangerous” radioactive material used in medical treatment that was stolen by two gunmen two days ago, officials said. The white Volkswagen Worker truck was transporting a teletherapy device containing cobalt-60 when it was stolen Monday in the central Hidalgo state town of Tepojaco, near Mexico City, according to the International Atomic Energy Agency. (Snip)So they found the container, just not the incredibly dangerous material that was in it. The
A fourth student at the University of California Santa Barbara has come down with a strain of meningitis similar to the one that sickened eight Princeton University students in New Jersey, authorities said. The California students began getting sick about three weeks ago, according to a university statement. One student had to have both legs amputated, ABC News has learned. "He´s from my hometown. I hope he is doing well," said David Burkow, another student. "It´s just kind of scary because there is a constant fear." The California school has suspended social events, including sorority and fraternity parties, to avoid
With a ruling by a federal judge on Tuesday that Detroit is eligible to enter bankruptcy, the fate of the city’s art collection — one of the finest in the country — now moves front and center in the legal battle over the city’s future. But the judge, Steven W. Rhodes, questioned for the first time the push by some of the city’s largest creditors to sell paintings and sculpture from the Detroit Institute of Arts, a sale that could generate hundreds of millions of dollars or more. While he did not say specifically that the art should be spared,
WASHINGTON – The National Transportation Safety Board has removed the Association of Commuter Rail Employees as a participant in its investigation into the December 1 fatal derailment of the Metro-North passenger train in the Bronx that killed four people. Organizations designated as parties to investigations sign an agreement to abide by NTSB rules during an investigation, but on Tuesday, the chairman of the union, Anthony Bottalico, spoke to the media and discussed what he thought happened during the derailment and engineer William Rockefeller. “While we value the technical expertise that groups like ACRE can provide during the course of an investigation, it
A truck carrying potentially "extremely dangerous" radioactive material has been stolen in Mexico, the UN atomic watchdog said Wednesday. The International Atomic Energy Agency said the truck was carrying cobalt-60, used for radiotherapy treatment to combat cancer. An IAEA statement Wednesday said the truck was stolen Monday while taking the material to a radioactive waste storage center from the northern city of Tijuana. The IAEA said the heist occurred in Tepojaco, a town near Mexico City, and describes the load as `´extremely dangerous" if damaged or removed from its protective shielding. It said Mexican authorities are searching for the material. The statement provided
BEIRUT: Hassan Lakkis, the Hezbollah commander who was assassinated outside his Beirut home late Tuesday, had played a key role in advancing the group’s technological capabilities in its fight against Israel and had brushes with death on many occasions, sources told The Daily Star Wednesday. “Lakkis was involved in scientific development and played a key role in developing Hezbollah’s unmanned aerial vehicles program,” a source close to the Lebanese group told The Daily Star on condition of anonymity A security source, who also spoke on condition of anonymity, said Lakkis was also in charge of smuggling arms to Gaza and Egypt.
Four months into his tenure at CNN, Jeff Zucker woke up in his New York City apartment and realized that he couldn’t move his face. “You wake up and you look in the mirror and your face can´t move and you think you had a stroke, and then you go to the emergency room and they diagnose it,” Zucker told Capital during a wide-ranging interview. Zucker was diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy in June, a form of facial paralysis that renders affected people unable to control facial muscles on one side of their face. “It´s definitely better than it was, but
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
America is facing a wave of strikes by its fast-food workers on Thursday a day after Barack Obama warned that inequality in the USA had soared to the point that it now posed "a fundamental threat to the American dream". Low-paid workers in McDonalds, Kentucky Fried Chicken and other fast-food outlets in 100 cities across America were due to start rolling strikes to protest at the low level of America´s $7.25 (£4.45) federal minimum wage. The strikes are the latest part of a mushrooming publicity campaign for higher wages among those working so-called "McJobs", with fast-food restaurants seen as a
