Piers Morgan Deportation Petition Reaches 49,000 Signatures, White House Must Respond
mediaite.com ^ | Dec. 24, 2012 | Anjali Sareen

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 it’s 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 Morgan’s comments calling for increased gun legislation in America and are accusing him of wanting to “undermine the Bill of Rights.”

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 don’t 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.

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’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.

Americans react to the Progressive Wallahs' latest fat wad against America.

Department of State issued warnings concerning radical Progressives rampaging and targeting Americans in Progressive countries. Be advised if you are traveling abroad.

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.

Wasn’t he actually wanted for prosecution in England for something or other?

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.

With a foreigner being “installed” as President, I doubt if your governance can be any further debased, or any more dangerous.

But not if he’s masquerading as a news reporter.

We have the legal right to demand that he be deported.

Not so.

Immigration statutes require that after a certain number of complaints, hearings must be held on their deportation.

If their presence is detrimental, they can easily be deported.

on twitter.
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.”

"Piers Morgan has a free speech right to his opinion as long as he’s not advocating unlawful activity."

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.

Did the petition to deport Piers Morgan also include that for CNN?

If not, it will be ineffective — CNN will just hire another PM.

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 president’s views on gun control are not popular so this petition is not particularly useful in communicating to the White House.

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 wasn’t going to get their votes anyway. And yes those addresses can be filed away just incase they’re needed.

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.

You are right about Piers Morgan, wrong about this bogus epidemic of "petitions." The White House has no obligation even to acknowledge their existence, much less respond. They are no more than an online poll--ie, squat.
