Mark Steyn sounds off on CNNís Piers Morgan
The Daily Caller ^ | December 26, 2012 | Jeff Poor

Filling in for Rush Limbaugh on his Wednesday show, National Review columnist Mark Steyn reacted to all the unfolding drama related to CNN’s Piers Morgan and his anti-gun stance including a petition on the White House website wanting to deport the Morgan, saying, “How much longer are Americans going to have to put up with some snooty, hoity-toity foreigner coming on the airwaves and telling them everything that’s wrong with their country?”

“Do you know this fellow, Piers Morgan?” Steyn said. “Piers Morgan. He’s one of these, you know, these snotty-voiced foreigners who came to America and wound up with some big time media gig. OK, not a big time media gig. It’s not like he’s on the Rush guest host roster or anything. But he has this show on CNN and he’s been ever since the Newtown massacre, he’s being anti-gun. He’s being pro-gun control. He’s actually not in favor of gun control — he just doesn’t think anyone should have guns. He just, he’s basically anti-gun. And when he has a pro-gun guest on, he just hectors them and says ‘You’re a stupid and contemptible man.’”

Steyn, a Canadian citizen and the author of “After America: Get Ready for Armageddon,” referred to a tweet from author Joyce Carol Oates likening Morgan’s plight to that of black victims of “Southern lynch mobs,” which he called remarkable because it has made an Englishman a member of “a victim group.”(continued)

I just love that some UK citizen put on WHgov a petition to demand they do not send Piers back to England.
And of course Jeramey Clarkson has written fabulous articles saying “don’t send him back”.

Americans. Was the second amendment not introduced to protect you from the tyranny of the British? Piers Morgan in other words.

Lets not start learning American history from the British.

The Second Amendment was Ratified December 15, 1791.
George Washington was half-way through his first term as President of the United States at that time.

Yeah, but the British came back in 1812.

True you are!
If the US military failed to defend against the British,

citizens would be equipped to protect themselves and their family irregardless of their gender, size, or age.

A major reason for the addition of this amendment to the bill of rights. A civil right to life and peace.

While you’re correct, you’re also (intentionally) ignoring the underlying point, which is correct and sound.

Steyn is brilliant. I could tell from his tone he was having loads of fun with that self-deprecating bit on Morgan. Later in the program, he even revived his famous “Uighur Wednesday” routine.
