Posted on 12/25/2012 2:15:42 PM PST by PROCON
The petition to deport CNN host Piers Morgan for his recent comments on gun control has reached over 49,000 signatures as of this posting, which will force the White House to respond. The petition, created Friday, needed 25,000 signatures within 30 days for the White House to take action and its reached far more than that in a mere three days.
In case you missed it, the petition called for Morgan to be deported for his hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution. Gun advocates are angry about Morgans comments calling for increased gun legislation in America and are accusing him of wanting to undermine the Bill of Rights.

I actually heard that they were at 60,000 sigs. Kick him out! Tar and feathers 1st.
It would be a hell of a lot more satisfying to pick a fight with him in a bar in DC and then take it outside. Doubt he’d leave the joint. He’s a pussy.
Piers is pond scum so this is fun but goofy.
Piers Morgan has a free speech right to his opinion as long as he’s not advocating unlawful activity. As a foreigner, Morgan still has a 1st Amendment rights.
You dont strengthen the Constitutional right to bear arms by eviscerating the Constitutional right to free speech.
The white house doesn’t have to respond. Its not a legitimate process in our form of government.
Its American idol governance and its extremely damaging to our form of government.
If he had done what David Gregory did we could get him out on a felony.
Put him on a raft with a paddle.
But he hasn’t committed a violation against the law. He’s just smarting off. It’s guaranteeing free speech to whoever is in the US. I don’t think you can deport someone for being an idiot.
I wonder if we could do a "petition" to change that. Heh heh heh.
petitioning the WH about Morgan doing what he was told to do by the WH......like reporting chickens missing to the fox
Not only is it a useless act, it’s a dangerous one that is a goldmine for the Won’s enemy list.
I’m not worried about being on his enemies list but I do agree that its dangerous because it further debases our legitimate means of governance.
Department of State issued warnings concerning radical Progressives rampaging and targeting Americans in Progressive countries. Be advised if you are traveling abroad.
I signed it.
>I dont think you can deport someone for being an idiot.<
If it were possible, the US would be a very underpopulated country.
I agree that it would if anybody actually did anything based on these idiotic “petitions.” When I read you earlier post, the word that came to the front of my mind was “debase.” That’s exactly what is going on here.
It’s the equivalent of passing a law because somebody hollered about it at a political rally. Which I guess is sort of what we have already, come to think of it. Maybe we just don’t want it debased *further.*
Deporting Morgan would not deprive him of his “free speech rights”. He can say whatever he wants. He can even be on CNN. Just not from the USA.
Well maybe at least you’d get rid of Obamagabe voters.
0 shouldn’t have a problem with that if they do an exchange for 50 Muslims.
Wasn’t he actually wanted for prosecution in England for something or other?
Would that make him a criminal in the US?
We don’t have to have any reason to deport a non American.
It is not a RIGHT to be allowed in this country. Nor is it a right to be able
to stay in this country if u are not an American.
Send the limy back to England.
“Its American idol governance and its extremely damaging to our form of government.”
Perfect fit for low information voters!
With a foreigner being “installed” as President, I doubt if your governance can be any further debased, or any more dangerous.
>> “Piers Morgan has a free speech right to his opinion as long as hes not advocating unlawful activity.” <<
But not if he’s masquerading as a news reporter.
We have the legal right to demand that he be deported.

Immigration statutes require that after a certain number of complaints, hearings must be held on their deportation.
So now all we gotta do is ask the emperor to issue decrees now?
No different than the leftards.
Entry of aliens is conditional.
If their presence is detrimental, they can easily be deported.
bump to the top
So take it up with the INS and stop begging at the feet of the emperor.
Jeremy Clarkson, the British TV presenter famous for Top Gear, joked, Americans. It took us 40 years to get rid of Piers Morgan. Pleease don’t send him back.
Only CNN would pay this prissy British egotist for the lousiest show on the tube, and that includes Honey Boo-Boo.
We’re over 66,000 om the petition. If the NRA has four million members where on they on this?
Apropos, how is the petition to the White House to impeach Obama doing? http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/2960426/posts
IMHO, calling for the government to violate the Constitution is advocating unlawful activity. There's a fine line; if Piers is calling for an honest and open debate to repeal the 2nd Amendment, that's protected political speech. If he's calling for government to violate the Constitution based on a groundswell of public emotion (which he has been instrumental in shaping), I would have to consider that a direct incitement of unlawful and potentially violent behavior.
LOL I like Clarkson and he’s the one that acts like he doesn’t like America....or anybody else.
Did the petition to deport Piers Morgan also include that for CNN?
If not, it will be ineffective — CNN will just hire another PM.
My sig landed in the high 65,000s, pun intended.
>It is not a RIGHT to be allowed in this country.<
Sheesh, tell that to all the millions of illegal aliens and the American politicians who try to keep them in the country.
The only “action” the WH will take is to gather all of the data that it can about the petitioners. We know what Marxists do to dissenters.
So what forces the White House to respond?
A simple we are not going to do anything would be a response, so what good does this petition do?
The White House knows the presidents views on gun control are not popular so this petition is not particularly useful in communicating to the White House.
Well, d’uh! “We’ve got ourselves a harvest, Rahm baby! No need to troll those anonymous forums anymore!”
He’s a foreign national engaging in subversive activity designed to undermine our constitution and our national security. He really should be deported...at the very least.
People are so concerned about tracking cookies, privacy invasions, spam, etc, and then they go and volunteer their names to the government headed by a committed marxist!
Nothing will happen to Gregory...and nothing will happen to Morgan.
“Immigration statutes require that after a certain number of complaints, hearings must be held on their deportation.”
Do you have a source for this nonsense?
Personally I think the petition website is a propaganda tool for the president.
He finds Liberal issues to use in his propaganda and has the added benefit of collecting email addresses for his campaign machine.
Any conservative issues can be easily ignored with zero consequences. He wasnt going to get their votes anyway. And yes those addresses can be filed away just incase theyre needed.
Who says the White House must respond?
I cuold give a crap what the White house does. The key point is to get the numbers high enough that someone at CNN, if they have half a brain, understands that Morgan is killing their ratings for that time spot.
Any advertising buyer is going to notice those petition numbers too. We need to pick one of Morgan’s advertisers and boycott their product.
