Piers Morgan Lashes Out on Twitter Against Petition Asking White House to Deport Him
Forbes ^ | 12/24/12 | Alex Kantrowitz

Posted on 12/24/2012 1:31:28 PM PST by Clint N. Suhks

Piers Morgan lashed out on Twitter today after a petition on the White House’s official website demanding his deportation blew past the 25,000 signature mark necessary to require an official response.

The petition, now over 45,000 signatures, asks the White House to deport Morgan, a CNN host, for what it calls an attack on the second amendment. Morgan, who is British, has been an outspoken advocate for gun control in the aftermath of the Newtown shootings earlier this month. The petition calls his advocacy a “hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution,” and demands that he “be deported immediately for his effort to undermine the Bill of Rights and for exploiting his position as a national network television host to stage attacks against the rights of American citizens.”

In the early going, Morgan seemed to be amused by the petition, retweeting links to it and playfully urging his followers to sign. But, after the petition passed the 25,000 threshold, he returned to Twitter to bash the petition, calling it ridiculous and stating that his positions on gun control are not anti-constitutional but rather common sense. Morgan also retweeted a number of tweets supporting him.

Just for stirring the fire, BUT

What would UK do if some Yank were on the radio or telly harping against the laws of the land and its citizens (naturally ok for a ‘native’ to do it) etc.

Yet this piece of trash (the only reason I even suspect he is a ‘ferriner’ is from what I read, here. I have never heard or laid an eyeball on him) will say he is HERE is because of that ‘Freedom of Speech’ thingy.

His parents named him Piers because they thought Peter would be too obvious.

Eighty percent of the british male immigrants I have met are serious nut jobs and/or narcissists. Why do we attract their loser imports?

FO yuh elitist poofter.

You’re a jackass attention whore and I have no doubt you will continue your position out of vanity and self serving, superiority complex masking your underwhelming man bits.

Blow it out your ass.

We kicked your ass twice because we didn’t believe you were our betters and you can bet your life we helped you twice because we are better human beings of extraordinary and deep conviction in Christ’s utmost call for compassion.

Frankly, I’d actually like to kick your insufferable ass but I couldn’t bring myself to strike someone so afflicted by mental diseases such as turrets, ADD and syphilis.

Just doesn’t seem right.

It will only help the cause of why we want you to get out.

The bigger question here is why American tax dollars are being used to maintain a website with useless "petitions" that the apparatchiks in DC will use as electronic toilet paper.

The ragheads would be doing us a favor if they nuked that place while Congress was in full session, but they realize that the federal apparatchiks and the political class are more dangerous to us taxpayers outside the beltway than they could ever hope to be.

Piers, not only do I want to deport you, I want to tar and feather you then put your arse on a raft in the Atlantic ocean and let the queen come pick you up if she wants to.

If you don’t like Americans guns, then go back to your country where you are a subject.

It depends on whether what he said was supported or opposed by the UK Left.

If a Yank were to advocate gun ownership for UK subjects, he would be taken off the air.

If he advocated elimination of further Muslim immigration he would be imprisoned for racism.

The ultimate irony would be someone knifing him, and asking him, as he lay weltering in his own blood. . . “Don’t you wish you had a gun today???”

But I’d settle for him unemployed and in a trailer park, somewhere. . .

That also, BUT what I was trying to emphasize is that I don’t believe BBC or such has any announcers from say Brooklyn or the Deep US South.

Steady on, Piers. Just Yanks expressing their First Amendment rights -- as guaranteed by the Second.

He seems upset that we want to infringe his right to free speech. Nobody is suggesting he can’t speak his mind, we just want him to do it from somewhere else.

Piers Morgan...joining a long list of limeys who have blown up US media companies... Tina Brown (killed Newsweek) and Mark Thompson who came to run the NY Times (further) into the ground because he couldn’t stay in Britain after covering up a child sex scandal at the BBC. That British accent will only get you so far kids...after awhile the public figures out you are a loser, even if you do have the snooty authoritarian sound of our former school marms.

Send the redcoat back to his home for trying to subvert our Constitution. His “professional” predecessors with all of their superior toys and tactics were beaten by our “mere colonials” more than once. We should also pass laws, when the time is right, to punish his overly influential and traitorous American anglo-phile followers for evil efforts.

Like all libs, Morgan claims his right to be an idiot and say whatever he wants, but when others take him to task for it he doesn’t like it. We are supposed to bow down to all pontifications from these empty suits but not question or take them to task for what they say.

Haven’t we just all been waiting for some self-righteous, smug ‘’I’m so much more smarter then you Yanks because I have a British accent’’ to tell us about our own Constitution. Hey Piers, go f yourself up the nose with rifle cleaning cleaning equipment.
