Thousands sign US petition to deport
Piers Morgan over gun control views

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 12/24/2012 12:09:02 PM

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”

Comments:
3l,000+ signatures collected by today...

How dare this foreigner exploit his position to attack our Constitutional rights?

As bad as Morgan is -- and that´s really bad -- he pales in comparison to anyone at MSNBC.

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.

Nice how the "journalists" don´t actually print the full (and very short) text of the petition. It would take one quick paragraph, but then they couldn´t put their own spin on it.

No, deportation for this git will never happen, but it´s nicely worded and it gets a good point across. "Mind Your Own Business, Brit!"

I beg to differ. It makes no sense to defend the Second Amendment by dishonoring the First. Morgan is as entitled to speak his views as the rest of us.

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.

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?

While the spectacle of the world´s most expensive Olympics, with its inflatable St. Basil´s, technical glitches, unceremonial slip-ups and surreptitious signs of protest, had a global audience captivated, all eyes were on the torch bearers, in particular, gymnast Alina Kabayeva, who also happens to be President Vladimir Putin´s girlfriend. Putin had earlier refuted suggestions that Kabayeva would be afforded the special privilege of wielding the Olympic torch at the opening ceremony. "I´m aware of this [speculation that Kabayeva will light the flame]," he said. "I was told of this by [Kremlin spokesman] Dmitry Peskov. These are the usual red herrings.

KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia – This time around, the judges gave Sage Kotsenburg the score he deserved. And Kotsenburg gave the United States the first gold medal of the Sochi Games. Kotsenburg, the 20-year-old from Park City, Utah, stomped a 93.5 on his first run of the inaugural Olympic slopestyle contest and watched it hold up in a massive upset. As top competitors Max Parrot and Mark McMorris of Canada faltered, Kotsenburg took advantage with an array of technical tricks like the Japan air and a double nose-grab. And with Shaun White having dropped out of slopestyle earlier this week, Kotsenburg picked up the

BERLIN — Germans were already smarting from revelations that U.S. intelligence listened in on the phone conversations of Chancellor Angela Merkel. Then came Nulandgate. On Thursday, a video was posted on YouTube in which Victoria Nuland, the top U.S. diplomat for Europe, disparagingly dismissed European Union efforts to mediate the ongoing crisis in the Ukraine by bluntly saying, “F--- the E.U.” On Friday, Merkel, through press attache Christiane Wirtz, described the gaffe as “absolutely unacceptable,” and defended the efforts of Catherine Ashton, the E.U.’s foreign policy chief.

There is a visible lack of joy.

On September 15 one day before Susan Rice made her infamous appearances on various Sunday shows, according to the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee report Morell received an email from the CIA station chief in Libya indicating the Benghazi attacks were “not/not an escalation of protests.” The report does not indicate when Morell read the email, but that same day Morell cut the word “Islamic” from the talking points and left the word “demonstration.”

SAN FRANCISCO — Amazon investors might have finally heard the news they have been waiting for: The retailer is raising shipping fees. Amazon has 237 million active customers but as a general rule makes almost no profit. Thursday’s announcement that the company was considering raising prices by as much as 50 percent on its $79 Prime shipping program could mean $500 million for its skimpy bottom line. “This is the first time we’ve ever seen Amazon flex its muscles in terms of pricing,” said Gene Munster, an analyst with Piper Jaffray. “It’s hugely significant.”

President Obama has broken many promises. One that he has not broken is his boast that he would "fundamentally transform America."

Powerful winds in the Pacific Ocean, which have driven surface heat deep underwater, could be the reason behind the current ‘pause’ in global warming.

Their research shows that trade winds in central and eastern parts of the Pacific have caused warm surface water to sink to the ocean´s depths, reducing the amount of heat in the atmosphere.
