Skip to comments.Ben Shapiro SHREDS Pompous Redcoat Oppressor Piers Morgan
Posted on 01/11/2013 2:08:36 AM PST by Reaganite Republican
You realize that Piers is getting the best viewership numbers of his ever-so-brief CNN career with this mess? CNN might even give him a pay-raise for this.
*** PING ***
Words shred nothing.
"As long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any conditions be brought under English rule. It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself".
At that point I had hoped Ben would have asked Pierced "what was the weaopn used to shoot Gabby Giffords? Your agenda, Pierced, is to ban handguns after you ban the so-called "Assault Weapons."
Otherwise, Ben did a credible job standing up to Nipple Ring.
It’s pointless to argue with someone as stubborn and philosophically alien as Piers Morgan. I’m certain that Mr. Morgan would have continued his vigorous defense of the German gun ban, even as he stood naked under the showerhead and the gas poured in...
Piers needs a punch in the throat.
This no so funny clown actually has an audience? It only took me a second of time to place him in the ignore/never watch-listen column.
Well it’s easy to sit here in the calm and think what Shapiro should have said.It isn’t so easy when you are in the hot seat. I think he did a helluva job.
Piers got off on saying that Ben fears his own Government, like that was ridiculous.
Far from ridiculous it is the reason we need guns. Piers said do you really think someday you may need Assault weapons? Hell I think some day we may need tanks and fighter aircraft to protect America from presidents like Barrack Obama who want to give our country to the Globalists and control our citizens with military or his civilian Bownshirts.
Piers the fool saw what happened in Germany the same way we did, he is seeing what happened in Venezuela and Cuba.He might go home and watch what the Muslims are doing at his home.
Department of State warns that radical Progressives are rampaging and targeting Americans in Progressive countries. Be advised if you are traveling abroad.
Reagan NEVER endorsed any sort of assault weapons ban when he had the power of the presidency! I suggest that the Reagan we knew, loved and respected as president was no longer with us in 1994. It is likely that Nancy put this thing in front of him and urged him to sign it.
So the fifty-thousand low information voters that watch this Piers Morgan interview will think he destroyed the right wing extremist.
Seriously, the Brietbart gentleman had it chillingly correct when he remarked on the number of handgun murders: the left wants assault weapons today and handguns next week. It’s nothing to do with the deaths of innocent children or individuals; it’s all about a political agenda that is damnable enough to use any victim regardless of age or gender to promote the agenda. THE END JUSTIFIES THE MEANS.
We need to demonstrate this administrations dedication to tyranny and illuminate the evidence supporting that agenda.
Tape a penny to a recipe-type card, write a pithy comment on the card to anti-American Morgan, put it in an envelope and mail it to Morgan % of CNN (address in my tagline).
A small gesture, but both Morgan and CNN will be agitated when the pennies for Morgan's air fare to London begin to arrive at their TV studio.
It's something to do other than preach to each other, an exercise in futility that's been going on for almost two weeks now.
Hey Piers, our Founding Fathers feared their own gov't - the one they were responsible for creating.
Oh, of course
But it won’t last, and his show’s a joke...
I could reach a larger audience just yelling out the window
Morgan was incredulous that any rational person would believe that his government would oppress him while simultaneously exhibiting the attitude that enables such a development.
I wonder if Pierce ever heard of Waco.
I wonder if he knows how many people have been injured or killed by various levels of policing when they have not been convicted of a capital offense.
Well, looks like all conservatives that appear on his show now have something to mock him about...
Well, Piers, it turns out that my little book says...
Good grief, imagine listening to Shapiro with audio sped up. Somebody coach him, please.
I think Ruby ridge is the best example to use.
The government sets up weaver. Weaver does not want to play their game.
They raid his house knowing that the gun they sold him was in a technical violation of law.
They botch the raid - an agent gets killed after shooting weavers dog. Then agents kill weaver’s wife with a scoped rifle. I am pretty sure the shooter, a federal agent, treats the kill like a trophy. (Was this Lon Horuchi?)
Weaver goes to court and wins a 6 million dollar settlement against his attackers and tormentors - the federal government.
Nothing to fear? - ha
I like Shapiro, but he gives up way too much ground on this issue. His comment that a database is OK as long as it isn’t made public is just nuts. Allowing a national gun registry or database would be the most dangerous and destructive thing we could do.
The problem is progressives have zero support for the first amendment rights of Ben Shapiro. Or any of us, for that matter.
Make it a crime to not have a full gun safe? Keep full auto "infringed" by the Fed? He kept allowing Prince Moron to corner him on "assault weapons" and kept letting him get away with blatant stupidity.
Put Uncle Ted on with Piers. He'd have him in tears by the time he was done...
Ben did a decent job, but he missed an opportunity at the end. When Piers started asking him about why a citizen would “need” an AR-15 assault rifle, Ben should have hammered two points:
1. We do not have a bill of NEEDS in the Constitution; we have a bill of RIGHTS. Legislation and/or restrictions based on the premise that we are allowed to have only the things that the government thinks we NEED is the epitomy of tyranny.
2. In the LA riots after the Rodney King trial verdict, the Korean shop owners — who would otherwise have been killed and had their homes, businesses, and families burned to the ground — defended themselves with semi-automatic “assault” rifles. They ABSOLUTELY NEEDED those weapons. Handguns would not have been sufficient; shotguns would not have been sufficient.
That is true, but anybody who goes on any of these shows should be prepared to FORCEFULLY HAMMER certain strawmen that the left has erected:
1. The "why does anybody NEED an assault weapon" BS question. -- Our rights are not dependent upon what the government thinks we need. There is a reason that it is called the Bill of RIGHTS, and not the Bill of NEEDS.
2. The "hunting and sporting uses" nonsense. -- I love hunting and target shooting, but the 2nd Amendment has nothing to do with either. The right OF THE PEOPLE is NECESSARY TO A FREE STATE.
Already been done. Probably won't happen again.
For me, the first person who tells Piers Morgan on-air that “Redcoats like you are the type of people who made the American Revolution necessary” gets a standing ovation.
I loves me some Uncle Ted...
SOME OBSERVATIONS REGARDING BEN SHAPIRO, PIERS MORGAN AND MORGANs PREVIOUS GUEST ALEX JONES....
Shapiro states correctly that the Second Amendment is written specifically for the American people to be well armed. They are to form a militia in times of crisis and will be used to protect the people of these united States. Folks this is about your property rights. It is also to have the effect of a counterweight; a deterrent to a government that becomes tyrannical.
It is not to be infringed.
Piers Morgan weaves a familiar script where he insisted on Shapiro to answer his question. If you noticed, the trap is set when Morgan doesnt allow the guest to answer. He will intentionally interrupt the guest with another question or allegation. He will continue stacking the questions and allegations.
Indeed, Piers Morgans strategy is to paint a tapestry of the guest being insensitive and absurd.
In legal circles, such tactics would be a form of leading the witness, which would not be allowed in a court of law. Granted, the Piers Morgan show is not a court of law. Nevertheless, in any public debate there are rules of engagement. Each side is allowed to respond without constant interruption. Piers Morgan has an annoying habit of not letting his guest finish his point.
Alex Jones was adept in recognizing that the Piers Morgan Show is not a stage for a fair debate. Jones did not allow Piers Morgan to weave a web of questions and allegations. Each time Alex Jones fired back with a library of published statistics and facts.
In this regard, Alex Jones took Piers Morgan to the wood shed.
Unfortunately, Jones came off as a ranting, raving loon and his insistence that the US government had something to do with the destruction of the NY twin towers did him no favors.
It is also important noting that Piers Morgan and other anti-gun pundits ask repeatedly:
Why does anyone need a military assault rifle like that of a AR-15?
How many times was this question answered by the guests in those interviews?
Ben Shapiro answered it TWICE. It is to have the effect of a counterweight; a deterrent to a government that becomes tyrannical. Our government might not be tyrannical like Stalin or the Nazis now, but there is no guarantee that it wont slowly evolve that way. THAT is why we need a means of protecting ourselves and DETERRING Tyranny.
Piers Morgan was given this answer and never responded to it.
Piers Morgan was given this answer and never responded to it.
Morgan did respond by asking “ do you feel you need protection from the government”, after shapiros response, Morgan asked him if he knew how absurd he sounded.
RE: do you feel you need protection from the government
And THAT my friend is the BOTTOM LINE when it comes to the second amendment.
Liberals do not feel threatened by an ever growing, all encompassing government bureaucracy that is slowly controlling most aspects of our lives. They think it is a GOOD thing, that is why they think that distrusting the power of the government is absurd (Morgan’s words).
The best answer to that is to POINT OUT historical evidence of what happens to people when ONLY THE GOVERNMENT has arms and the people are disarmed.
Shapiro gave examples of that from his own family’s history ( he, being a Jew ). Piers Morgan never responded to that one either ( that’s what you get when you keep interrupting someone without addressing his point ).
He is still a nauseating limey and Tory.
