VIDEO: PIERS MORGAN SHOUTED DOWN BY GUN NUT IN FIERY INTERVIEW OVER US GUN LAWS
dailystar.co.uk ^ | January 8, 2013 | Andy Wells

Posted on 01/08/2013 4:10:51 AM PST by Tailgunner Joe

PIERS Morgan managed to keep his calm in the face of an explosive rant during an interview for his TV show.

Morgan interviewed Alex Jones, the man who set up a petition to have the Brit deported from America over his views on gun control, for his CNN show.

But instead of giving an interview, the furious Jones shouted non-stop at Morgan for nearly 15 minutes - and even offered to FIGHT the former BGT judge in a boxing ring.

Morgan invited Jones to appear so they could debate the thorny issue of gun control in America in the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre that saw children and adults shot to death at an elementary school.

Jones was filled with rage as he screamed at Morgan: "I'm here to tell you, 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms.

"It doesn't matter how many lemmings you get out there on the street begging for them to have their guns taken.

"We will not relinquish them."

In his fiery tirade, Jones went on to blame anti-depressant drug Prozac as a source of death in the world, labelling them "suicide mass murder pills."

He said: "I wanna blame the real culprit - suicide pills. Mass murder pills."

Despite Morgan's best efforts, he was barely able to get a word in edgeways with Jones not answering his questions about why people needed automatic weapons.

The end of the interview ended in bizarre fashion when Jones put on an English accent to mock Morgan.

He finished off saying: "It's to point out you're a foreigner, you're a redcoat here telling us what to do."

The petition to deport Morgan has now garnered over 100,000 signatures.

Alex Jones? Nut? Perhaps. Gun nut? Not really.

I watched the interview, and it was a decent interview for the first half of it...and kinda deteriorated after the mid-point. Piers actually gained viewership over the past ten days over this whole discussion of gun control, and this might have saved his job for another year.

“PIERS Morgan managed to keep his calm”

Yes, how about that?

Wasn’t that nice of him?

Did he almost seem rather subdued and uncharacteristically polite? Not a bunch of talking over and shutting down his guest?

You don’t suppose maybe this was exactly how he wanted the interview to go, now do you?

You don’t think maybe his intent was to prove to his viewers that these ‘gun people’ are bat-sh!t crazy?

You don’t suppose this was all a set-up?

No, couldn’t be.

Ah! I wish we could go back to the older days when men were men before they were physiologically castrated.

That man would have simply beat the crap out of him and let the viewers know that spewing liberal gun hysteria results in physical action.

Not the way to handle things. Civil discourse much better. This is escalation to conflict. We do not want this to go to conflict, but some apparently are pushing it that way.

“This is escalation to conflict.”

There is no conflict bloodier or more cruel and costly in terms of life and treasure than a government that refuses to accept that it has limits to what it can or should do.

We have this government now, and it thus far has refused to acknowledge that it has any limits whatsoever, despite the clearly defined limits enumerated in the Constitution.

How DARE citizens exercise God-given rights and freedoms!

Personally I had no problem with Jones' behavior due entirely to what I remember of "the way it was" through the decades of the "Fairness Doctrine;"

conservatives were subjected to that kind of behavior and if they tried to respond via the media the station owners could lose their licenses.

So conservatives would often slink away protesting that they were not racists, bigots, Nazis, . . . .

I thought that it was silly of Morgan to insist that Jones compare "gun crime" numbers in England to ours.. Jones was right to compare violent crimes in general.

I thought that it was telling that Morgan refused to acknowledge Jones' point that most gun crimes were pistol-based so why the emphasis on AR-15 "assault weapons;" to wit, was "assault weapons" just to scare the uninformed majority into accepting the total destruction of our inalienable rights?

RE: "Nice to see a lib get a dose of their own medicine."

I agree and add..

that just as the "Fairness Doctrine" was used by liberal/progressives to restrict the Second Amendment without having to repeal it --

-- the liberals today are attempting to restrict the Second Amendment with a new kind of "Fairness Doctrine"..

by scaring the nation of uninformed voters with screams of "assault weapons" hiding under beds and everywhere just waiting to shoot you.

I will preface this by saying I like Alex and I have his app on my phone and listen frequently.

I will also say I think he should have toned it down a wee bit but Let's face it, the guy's loaded for bear when it comes to testosterone.

He rarely does TV appearances so he was probaby it itching to get at Morgan. I don't watch this POS Morgan but I do read that his MO is usually talk over people, interrupt them and ridicule them. AJ was not having that. Typically when he does an interview he tries to get as much info in as he can ... Information that people won't hear anywhere else. I am sure some people googled democide last night.

I would agree with that. The last person on Earth I’d want to have as my spokesman (regarding ANY issue whatsoever) is Alex Jones. Well, ok, maybe Jeff Rense would be the absolute last person on Earth I’d want as a spokesman.

Piers Morgan knew full well what kind of person Alex Jones is....a paranoid nutburger. There’s probably no other person who could do more to discredit the views of responsible gun owners than Alex Jones. Well, ok, again.....maybe Jeff Rense. But Jones comes across as a nut. And I’m pretty sure that’s exactly what Piers had in mind.

Alex Jones is a whiny b*tch that likes to bully small women.

That being said, Piers wouldn't know "truth" if he was being choked to death with it. His job is agitprop...

Should have been an episode of Celebrity Death Match instead of just an interview.

The only report I've seen of Adam's tox screen was negative for drugs.

No mention on if he was on them at any time prior to this incident and was just "off his meds".

Then again, the more I try and pin down "facts" in this tragedy, the more confusing things become.

I enjoyed it. I liked the passion, and his arguments were sound. If the liberals get weepy, who cares? This kind of rhetoric might wake them up. It has its place.

Yeh maybe because the TSA and an Austin cop in the Austin airport rousted him and detained him to entertain themselves before he took off for NY.

Alex got a little ranty at one point but its about time somebody stood up and let the establishment know they are not taking our guns.

You don’t understand. Here he feels the equal of everyman even though he is a Brit.

If he is sent home he becomes a low commoner in a land that still has a very strong class structure where he would be subsurvant to the lords, ladies, royalty.

Being a news reporter his place in British society would be less than a prositute.

A wise man once said: “arguing with an idiot makes both of you idiots”. To which I would add: “Arguing with a LIB/RAT/Marxist/do-gooder is like spitting in the wind. It does no good and all you get is a spit-covered face”.

Jones should have stopped at: “I’m here to tell you, 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms.”
