    The British have responded to a petition calling for the deportation from the United States of CNN host Piers Morgan with one of their own: Stop Piers Morgan from being deported back to the UK from America. The counter-petition, addressed to Theresa May, Home Secretary, is a direct response to the 70,000 Americans who have signed a petition calling for Mr. Morgan to be deported from the United States because of his strong gun-control views. The UK petition, posted on change.org reads as follows: We got rid of him [Piers Morgan] once and why should we have to suffer again....

    Following a groundswell of support in America for demands to expel Piers Morgan from the country and deport him back to the UK over his views on US gun controls, it seems that any return home for the chatshow host would not be greeted warmly by everyone. The White House has yet to respond to an online petition calling for the TV presenter to be marched to the nearest American exit, but it has not stopped UK citizens from launching a pre-emptive strike against any such move. The petition to "Keep Piers Morgan in the USA" had nearly 600 signatures...
  • Piers Morgan Accuses GOP of 'Misogyny,' 'Political Grandstanding' at Clinton Hearing

    Could Piers Morgan be any more of an Obama hack? After Republicans grilled Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the Benghazi attacks on Wednesday, Morgan unloaded on their criticism as "political grandstanding" showing "a whisper of misogyny." "I've been listening to the Republicans getting on their high horse about this for a long time. Now I've thought a lot of today's criticism was political grandstanding in many ways," said the CNN host who has done plenty of grandstanding of his own from his high horse on gun control. "I'm getting a little bit weary, I'll be honest with you, with...

In a statement the Mirror said it had fallen victim to a "calculated and malicious hoax" and that it would be "inappropriate" for Morgan to continue. The Queen's Lancashire Regiment (QLR) said the Mirror had endangered British troops by running the pictures. Roger Goodman, of the QLR, said the regiment now felt "vindicated".

Highlighted first by Breitbart.com, the Oct. 19 interview has Turner speculating that its time to put war and conflict behind us and move on, and the rising rate of self-inflicted troop deaths is good because it brings attention to that view.

    Michael Moore isnt the only media figurehead openly calling for stricter gun control on the social media site Twitter today. Not only does Piers Morgan apparently want to straight up take away peoples guns, but he has a multi-step plan for exactly how America should be disarmed. The host of CNNs Piers Morgan Tonight went on an anti-gun Tweet rant following the mass shooting in a Connecticut school that left 28 people, including 20 children, dead earlier this morning. Only way forward for America is a national gun policy, same (much tougher) laws for everyone. No assault weapons for civilians,...

There's no doubt that the "tragedy" referenced is the horrific Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that occurred last Friday, and that the "cause" is gun control: Over the past 24 hours, Morgan has become increasingly unhinged over his pet issue of American gun control. Last night, on his low-rated CNN show, Morgan lit into a guns right advocate, hysterically calling the man an "idiot" and "unbelievably stupid."

By contrast the number in notoriously violent South Africa is 1,609 per 100,000. The U.S., meanwhile, has a rate of 466 crimes per 100,000 residents, which is lower than Frances, at 504; Finlands, at 738; Swedens, at 1123; and Canadas at 935.

    CNNs Piers Morgan has for days cited U.S. and British gun homicide statistics in an attempt to get stricter controls on firearms here in America. On Tuesday, Cincinnati Fox affiliate WXIX thoroughly debunked many of Morgans claims After playing a clip of Morgans interview with radio host Alex Jones, WXIXs Ben Swann said, The stat that Piers Morgan was continuing to cite, one that Great Britain which banned guns about fifteen years ago had only 35 gun-related murders in 2011 compared to the United States which had 11,000. Lets start there because that number is not correct. Swann then broke...

    Piers Morgan was having his butt handed to him on a platter by Ben Shapiro, who had at the beginning of the segment handed Piers a copy of the Constitution. When Ben motioned towards the copy about the 2nd Amendment, Piers tossed is and said "I know what's in YOUR LITTLE BOOK" with a clear look of disdain. Go back and face your court charges, Piers.

    You come in here, brandish your little book as if I dont know whats in there-- My little book? Thats the Constitution of the United States. Its our founding document, Piers. I know whats in your Constitution. Do you really? That was the climax of a heated debate between Breitbart News Editor-at-Large Ben Shapiro and CNNs Piers Morgan on live television this evening--one in which Morgan came off much the worse for wear. Shapiro began by pointing out that for weeks, Morgan had bullied guests who defend the right to bear arms by "standing on the graves of the children...

    CNNs Piers Morgan on Thursday said he believes most decent, civilized Americans share his view on the need for stricter gun control laws. Morgan stopped by CBS This Morning to discuss his shows recent focus on gun control, as well as the connected petition to deport him from the country. The CNN host said the interviews hes had recently with people such as Alex Jones the gun advocate and creator of the Deport Piers Morgan petition help keep the issue from fading from the public eye as has happened after past incidents of gun violence in the United...

    Droll, predictable foreign-threat-to-the-Constitution Piers Morgan showed us all once again last night just why he really ought to be put on the next boat to Blighty when he dismissed America's precious founding document as 'your little book' to conservative author Ben Shapiro- that's when theBreitbart Editor-at-Largereally let clown boy have it.

  • I'm British and Piers Morgan is Damn Wrong

    Many Americans, since the Sandy Hook massacre, have been disgusted by Piers Morgan's snooty condescension toward their great country, and his blatant disregard for the Second Amendment. This culminated in his recent interview with talk show host Alex Jones, that ultimately backfired when his fiery guest wiped the floor with him. Since the shooting, Morgan has strutted around as the flag waver for gun control, pointing to his native Great Britain as the ultimate example of what these dumb, gun-toting Yanks should try and imitate. Not only did he use Britain constantly in his scathing editorial against American gun laws,...

    Ever since the tragic massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, CNN host Piers Morgan has been on an anti-gun tirade all while lacking common sense and basic facts that drown his gun control rhetoric. Piers Morgan claims that if assault riffles and high-capacity magazines were outright illegal to own, 27 people wouldnt have been killed at the elementary school in Newton, Connecticut last year, nor 12 people in Aurora, Colorado. What Morgan fails to realize most is that criminals dont follow laws they don't want to; thats why theyre criminals in the first place. Looking at the Connecticut shooting specifically,...

    Duane hit this in the Green Room, but I want to note a few passages from the appearance of Breitbart's Ben Shapiro on CNN with Piers Morgan last night. First, Ben calls out Morgan for acting like a bully to his guests and an activist rather than a journalist, a theme that fits nicely with Ben's new book, Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences Americans. Ben told me on Wednesday's TEMS that he was relishing the confrontation --- and you can see why:CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO BEN SHAPIRO, EDITOR BREITBART.COM: You know, honestly Piers,...
