White House Petition To Deport Piers Morgan Passes Threshold, Now At 60,000 Signatures

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Frankly we have no idea what this is all about, because as far as we are concerned, CNN long ago became a politicized, ratings-starved farce, wrapped in a joke inside a humiliation (after once upon a time being the only go to place for objective breaking news), but it is rather funny. The Hill reports that "a White House petition calling for the deportation of CNN personality Piers Morgan, a U.K. citizen, over his recent comments criticizing U.S. gun laws rocketed past the 25,000 signatures it needed for an official response Monday. As of this writing, nearly 40,000 people had signed a petition demanding “Mr. Morgan 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.” A petition on the White House's “We the People” website needs 25,000 signatures in the first month of being posted to earn an official administration response. “I don't care about petition to deport me,” Morgan tweeted Monday. “I do care about poor NY firefighters murdered/injured with an assault weapon today. #GunControlNow.”

Politico adds:

CNN anchor Piers Morgan isn’t benefiting from much Christmas cheer, at least according to one measure: the number of signers on a petition urging the White House to deport Morgan has skyrocketed by Tuesday morning past 60,000 names.

 

The petition, created last week, had 60,080 supporters and is posted on the White House’s official petition site. It slams Morgan for comments he has made regarding gun control in the wake of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School that killed 20 children and six adults at the school.

 

By Monday, the petition had passed at least 25,000 signatures — the number required to receive a White House response.

Back to The Hill:

The furor over Morgan’s comments began after a contentious interview between the CNN host and Larry Pratt, the executive director of Gun Owners of America.

 

During the interview on his CNN show, "Piers Morgan Tonight," Morgan hammered Pratt and his defense of the 2nd Amendment and American gun laws.

 

"The argument I keep hearing is 'well if everybody else was armed, it wouldn't happen.' It's a load of total hogwash," Morgan told Pratt and other gun rights advocates who appeared on the show.

 

"How many more kids have to die, before you guys say, 'we want less guns, not more?'" Morgan added.

 

His comments came as Pratt and others discussed the recent Sandy Hook School massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, in which 27 people -- including 20 young children -- were shot by 20-year old Adam Lanza.

So let's see: a Brit unhappy with the Second Amendment and knowing best how to override the US constitution?

More importantly in this case, a Brit desperate to stir up a popular response and any social outcry for those all important TV ratings and, of course, the year end bonus?

Well, he achieved his goal.

Those who wish to endorse making Morgan a UK problem can do so here.

We expect a counterpetition by UK citizens demanding that Morgan be prevented from reentering his homeland at all costs, to appear momentarily.

i agree..freedom of speech is of paramount importance..even if its the speech of a bug who has hit the windshield and who now talks out of his ass...but why can't rendition be crossed with the first amendment to bring in a 28th amendment for "the right to not have to listen" and ship this low life cancerous piece of shit to somewhere like Point Nemo.

"freedom of speech"

He has had his say and now he is "free" to leave.  The American constitution is the business of American's, not foreigners.  On our soil, on that topic, foreigners are to shut up.  No exceptions.  Let Morgan yak it up in London.  They don't have freedom of speech there.

Freedom of speech is exactly that, the freedom to speak (in the first place), not freedom from the consequences of that speech- if you falsely shout "fire" in movie theatre you can be held liable for resulting damages, if you threaten someone you may be deprived of life (or liberty) as a consequence.

Signing a White House petition is a cute, but ineffectual gimmick, and much less effort than organizing a boycott against Time Warner, and by extension- New Line Cinema, Time Inc., HBO, Turner Broadcasting System, The CW Television Network, TheWB.com, Warner Bros., Kids' WB, Cartoon Network, Boomerang, Adult Swim, CNN, DC Comics, Warner Bros. Animation, Cartoon Network Studios and Castle Rock Entertainment...

The Second Amendment is the Right by which ALL OTHER RIGHTS are defended against the tyranny of the State.

Habeas Corpus (when it is available) only broadly applies to depriving individuals of physical liberty- as the State has the authority to deprive individuals of both life and property under administrative law and without prior judicial review.

Alternatively, you can get yourself a bankster's cash stash and an army of lawyers to defend your "rights", but given the hourly wage of lawyers and the median income in the US, that is only an option for the despised .01%, absent begging and throwing oneself at the mercy (and charity) of others- which implies a lack of "right" in the first place...

A patent is only worth what you are willing to spend to defend it.

I think we can say the same about our rights.  Without the 2nd amendment there is not much to spend to defend any of the others.

About 6 months ago I came up with a plan to put an end to war.  Just remember, you read it here first and I get credit.

"Nobody under 40 years of age is allowed to enter combat in any struggle." 

That would put an end to war forever.  Let the rich old men fight their own fucking battles.

that wouldn't work, there are plenty of non-rich over 40 people (I can't believe I have to point that out).  The politicians start the wars, they have to go first with their children 18 or over combat positions only, front lines of any offensive maneuvers, no hiding in a logistics center in Dubai or stuff like that minimum 1 year, if multiple deployments asked of regular military multiple deployments of politicians ... that would stop these wars

Good luck getting an army of over 40 to fight your wars.  Either they would refuse or they couldn't do it physically.  None of the oldsters would support wars if they had to fight in them.  Just look at all of the seniors that think they are badasses from the comfort of their armchairs.  Give them an M-16 and tell them to "go fight" and you'll see how hawkish they are then.

There is nothing easier than to send somebody else's kids off to war.  It's not so easy when you have to go.  Put Pelosi and Boehner on the front lines.

Agreed. There's a reason why the military frowns upon enlistees who are over 35 years of age and it's not because they aren't physically capable of pulling a trigger. It's because they are GENERALLY not as naive (as people 18-35) and more prone to questioning orders.

You're not helping anything with that stuff, for sure.  Hanging around a board frequented by bigots, fascists, and know-nothings, it's worth going down fighting for SOME kind of cultural memory.

Concepts such as "freedom of speech," "legal egalitarianism," "freedom of religion," "right to bear arms"--these have been *understood* historically, and given that *most* forces are aligning to stamp out such understanding here in the USA, don't you want to be remembered as being on the right side of history?

It's getting a bit embarrassing to hang out here...

There you go projecting again...did you see me calling for his deportation? I wasn't pretending anything...I offered no opinion on it.

Did I?

Now, if you're expecting me to defend his desire to stay here, I WILL NOT do that either.

So let me make something perfectly clear for you (because you're obviously having trouble comprehending what I'm saying) I do not respect his right to freedom of the press & speech (he's paid for it by others, by the way) for the same reason he does not respect our right to self defense, which we pay for.

When he begins to respect our rights (all of them) as American citizens, I may reconsider.

Is that clear enough for you?

Now go yap at him and ask him why he's such a big government, totalitarian asshat.

No, if you'd called for his deportation it would've been clear and logical, even if unconstitutional.  That's not your style.

Rather, you presented a muddle-headed false equivalence between his complaint about gun legislation and attempting to incite a panic.  (Fire in a crowded theater--I won't sidetrack onto that discussion, you're obviously not equipped to talk about it rationally.)

Rights have nothing to do with your personal opinion. 

Your preference not to demand they be enforced EQUALLY is the same as opposing them, because the entire POINT of rights is to prevent illegitimate goverment seizure of power.  If you're OK with government seizing power illegitimately against the people you dislike, you're OK with government seizing power illegitimately...despite your numerous assertations to the contrary.

Perhaps you can change the subject now....

Blunderdog,

Are you drunk? On the chance that you're not...you say...

"No, if you'd called for his deportation it would've been clear and logical, even if unconstitutional."

Really?

Just a few posts ago it's what you were inferring I was saying from my comments. I always try to be as clear and as logical as the Bill of Rights itself.

"Rather, you presented a muddle-headed false equivalence between his complaint about gun legislation and attempting to incite a panic. (Fire in a crowded theater--I won't sidetrack onto that discussion, you're obviously not equipped to talk about it rationally.)"

Well thats a real shame BD because that's EXACTLY what he's doing. He's using the freedom of our press, our notion of freedom of speech, the deaths of innocents, to advocate FOR restrictive gun legislation and feeding into a "progressive", media driven panic about ALL guns...not just Bushmasters and AK's. He's been on this rant (abusing freedom of press & speech) since the KC football player shot his ole lady with...a pistol.

But let's go ahead and gloss over an open, continuing, verbal assault on our Second Amendment Rights via the First Amendment...just like I said at first.

"Rights have nothing to do with your personal opinion."

Which is why I was always slightly bemused by your turning a blind eye toward the Food Police and your stated personal opinion you had larger issues to be concerned about. I attempted to point out (on several occasions) that you should be concerned with any attempt to curb our rights & liberty through the making of law.

"Your preference not to demand they be enforced EQUALLY is the same as opposing them, because the entire POINT of rights is to prevent illegitimate goverment seizure of power."

I was saying they be enforced equally. Didn't I plant tongue firmly in cheek and call for a two week waiting period just like many firearms? ;-)

I'm now prepared to go one step further (in my thought/logic experiment) on this road to mutually assured destruction & "equality". Everyone (especially media talking heads) should have to swear under penalty of a felony that they have not taken mind altering medications or be under care of a shrink BEFORE they are allowed to speak or print their drivel...fair is fair, right? 

"If you're OK with government seizing power illegitimately against the people you dislike, you're OK with government seizing power illegitimately...despite your numerous assertations to the contrary."

You are the one defending someone who is for the suppression of our rights by government...not me. While I realize everyone is granted the privilege of a vigorous defense here in this country, if I were you, I would decline my services to him. He's clearly not worth the effort to remain free. 

"There aren't many free-speech absolutists around, so I'm happy to do my part."

You can't have free speech or press without the ability to protect it...and disseminate it widely enough to be absorbed and understood by the People. Don't you feel the slightest bit USED to be defending someone who is advocating the same position as many "progressives" IN GOVERNMENT as Morgan...that is, blaming a butter knife or a gun?

He's been on this rant (abusing freedom of press & speech) since the KC football player shot his ole lady with...a pistol.

He's expressing an opinion about gun-control you don't like.  He's not trying to incite a panic.  You're prepared to use your personal judgment to redefine a legal precedent.  It's not about LAW in your mind.

     continuing, verbal assault on our Second Amendment Rights via the First Amendment...just like I said at first.

An opinion is not an assault.  If you really feel this way, you open the door for YOUR complaint about something like the estate tax to be silenced with government power--some politician could use your own argument to claim you're a dangerous threat to the state of union by "assaulting" its ability to generate revenue.

I support your right to whine about menus and sodas, and oppose any effort for government to impinge your right to express your opinion as often and as loudly as you like.

(You're wasting time on the menu issue, you always bring it up and never demonstrate it.  Go quote me saying I support menu or soda laws in ANY WAY or give it up, already.  This is just a tired lie.)

      You are the one defending someone who is for the suppression of our rights by government.

I am defending the rights of someone to express that opinion, absolutely, because I support freedom of speech.  It's the First Amendment, and includes a bunch of other good stuff, too.

      Everyone (especially media talking heads) should have to swear under penalty of a felony that they have not taken mind altering medications or be under care of a shrink BEFORE they are allowed to speak or print their drivel...fair is fair, right?

I have no idea what you're trying to get at here.  What's supposed to be "fair" about any of that?  There's no legal reason anyone has to provide justification for ANYTHING they say.  That's what freedom of speech is all about.  They can even make up lies and say stuff.  Obviously these are rights you make daily use of.

If you want to suggest government do more to regulate the public airwaves, surely you could come up with an example that makes some kind of sense, no?

A political opinion in line with governments desires (everywhere) to disarm, restrict or otherwise impair an individuals right, not "granted" by the state by the way but observed by the founding documents of that government. And again, he's paid by a mouthpiece for the state to say it.

"He's not trying to incite a panic."

Yes he is.

Again, he's been doing this since the football player killed his wife, while not speaking a word about the player seeking counseling within that organization for his anger issues, the Denver shooter seeing a shrink at his university or the obvious fucked up mental state of the Newtown shooter.

Have I not been clear or are you just being obstinate?

"An opinion is not an assault. If you really feel this way, you open the door for YOUR complaint about something like the estate tax to be silenced with government power--some politician could use your own argument to claim you're a dangerous threat to the state of union by "assaulting" its ability to generate revenue."

An opinion in the venue of news, is an editorial. Cable News Network. Are you suggesting with our government schooling over these past generations the People don't know the difference between news and opinion? I am. And...you just gave yourself away.

Why didn't you call government "revenue" taxes?

"Go quote me saying I support menu or soda laws in ANY WAY or give it up, already. This is just a tired lie.)"

Your current position is, "I have more important things to be concerned about than" the Food Police. Is this or is this not, correct?

Be careful here spud...I'll bust your balls if you lie or obfuscate again. And I can conclude you're not an anarchist either?

"I am defending the rights of someone to express that opinion, absolutely, because I support freedom of speech. It's the First Amendment, and includes a bunch of other good stuff, too."

That "bunch of other stuff" includes freedom of religion and the right to assemble with like minded people and form association. What is your opinion on mandating national socialist abortion coverage for religious affiliated employees?

A refresher course...for you...

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

And then we get to the favorite trick of those like you...writing, without context, yours is italicized, mine, (the introduction)...is not...

"I'm now prepared to go one step further (in my thought/logic experiment) on this road to mutually assured destruction & "equality".

Everyone (especially media talking heads) should have to swear under penalty of a felony that they have not taken mind altering medications or be under care of a shrink BEFORE they are allowed to speak or print their drivel...fair is fair, right?"

Looks a little different doesn't it?

"They can even make up lies and say stuff."

Correct, you just proved it in word...didn't you? ;-)

My "current position" is that I'm opposed to menu and soda laws, but I'm far MORE opposed to folks like you who want to violate the First Amendment to prevent people from expressing ideas you don't like.  This has ALWAYS been my position.

Just like: I'm opposed to shoplifting but I'm MORE opposed to murder.  If I had an opportunity to intervene and prevent a murder OR prevent a shoplifting, I would choose to prevent the murder FIRST.

You're still not making any sense on this subject, though.  You're all for freedom but you're opposed to respecting the first amendment when someone says something against the SECOND amendment?

Talk about not making sense...

"...but I'm far MORE opposed to folks like you who want to violate the First Amendment to prevent people from expressing ideas you don't like"

When, exactly, did I violate the First Amendment? Better yet, how could I possibly violate the First Amendment?

Perhaps by not being responsible with it...like Piers Morgan?

By the way, this foreign national can be deported & barred from re-entry, there is precedent. Not that Obama/Holder would do it, as he speaks as one with them, that is, the executive branch of the federal government.

http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/scripts/getcase.pl?court=us&vol=408&invol=753

"The concern of the First Amendment is not with a non-resident alien's individual and personal interest in entering and being heard, but with the rights of the citizens of the country to have the alien enter and to hear him explain and seek to defend his views; that, as Garrison [v. Louisiana, 379 U.S. 64 (1964)] and Red Lion observe, is of the essence of self-government." 325 F. Supp., at 631."

It turns out Piers Morgan's right to speak here (he is a foreign national) is less than zero afterall...lol.

All you've done throughout this is infer onto me words and deed you wished I had said or done.

Those aren't criticisms that need addressing, those are nothing but the ad hoc sniveling's and innuendo of a man trying desperately not to see the truth of what Piers Morgan is and the craven, irresponsible, abuse of OUR First Amendment protections by a foreign national cloaked within "our media".

He's hiding behind the First to attack the Second while he, ostensibly, is not even covered by the First, as a foreign national...as I have said from the beginning.

Now, I will assume you will stand with Piers Morgan in support of prosecuting this "gun nut" David Gregory of Meet the Press (to the very fullest extent of the law, including FEDERAL jail time) for breaking DC's law (a federal jurisdiction) against possessing large capacity ammunition magazines.

David Gregory is the kind of criminal Piers is talking about, is he not?

Knowingly, buying, transporting and possessing an illegal 30 round magazine into DC or does David get a pass in your judgement because he committed the crime in the presence of the effete, elite First Amendment crowd? ;-)

I already have, you, how shall I say it delicately, like to misrepresent what others say or have said and when cornered on it, throw a hissy fit and leave.

Again, we have here is, a foreign national, abusing the First to attack the Second...just like I've always said.

On top of that, he is protected by MSM security, a personal bodyguard and he won't say if that bodyguard is unarmed or not...the assumption being his guard carries a gun or he would say he doesn't...making him just another, typical, fire bomb throwing, leftwing hypocrite.

Exactly like David Gregory, who sends his children to a private school (not a public government school, his go to Sidwell Friends School) where a minimum of eleven armed guards protect his children everyday, at the same time he poo poo's LaPierre's statement that perhaps these soft targets for psychopaths (public schools) should be hardened...while holding up an illegal (in DC) gun magazine as a prop, just like their using the deaths of innocents as a prop for their agenda.

It was afterall, the governnent who passed laws making them soft targets in the first place and closed down the mental institutions thinking some of these nutcases can be "mainstreamed".

Well, no, some of them can't. Now they are among us because of people just like Gregory & Morgan...who have guards around them and their loved ones and think the proper role of government is to take our means of defense from them all of this creation of the problem (by them) away.

They are the ones who should be institutionalized when you get right down to it.

So, there is your "honest" free speech conversation between us American citizens BD, now I'm done.

"Freedom of speech" means government can't prosecute you for what you say.  Deportation is a form of prosecution in a case like this.  A similar use of such power would involve you being prosecuted for public obscenity because you called a mayor or senator a "dumbass" in a public discussion.

You sure you're prepared to give up the freedom to call someone a "dumbass" without potential reprisal?  It sure sounds like a necessary outcome of your "argument."  Heh.

That doesn't seem to be exactly how it happened, but I don't see your point.  Yes, there are unconstitutional abuses against people all the time.  That's part of why it's important to be able to identify them.  You'd consider his right to protest Hillary's speech protected under the 1st Amendment, right?

I don't understand why you'd think that's supposed to strengthen an argument against Morgan's right to free speech, though.

Another word game by a libtard. I dont give a fuck if you want to twist deportation into some category of criminal prosectuion or what not. He is a guest and if he cant mind his fucking manners then he should go, case closed, IMO.

But that is the central thread to libtard thought these days; sacrificing the national interests in favor of the indiividuals interest. But if the ship  of state sinks, we are all in the water, which is a sinking libtards would like to see just to prove their sincerity at being libtards if they dont actually hate their own nation.

As to what I would be willing to give up, that is mute. The government will arrest anyone that gets in its way or threatens the PTB for anything they want. Hell, we are all criminals today for a reason; crowd and thought control of the last resort.

When they wrote the amendment, the small Army, Navy and Marines of the fledgling United States used the same muskets.  They didn't restrict the citizens to 1500s Spanish halibards, while the PoPo and the Military were the only ones equiped with the best of the late 1700s technology. 

Not too mention several quotes from the likes of real liberals like Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin indicate the true intent of the 2nd and the overall concept of why citizens should be armed.  Assuming those quotes are accurate of course...

The white house will do nothing because they agree with this a$$hole and his liberal insane mockery of our country!

All of TV and All of Hollywood support disarming you including Fox and Murdoch.

My response to the person who would take "Freedom of Speech over the Right to Bear Arms". There's no Freedom of Speech without the Right to Bear Arms!!!!

Well maybe those poor firefighters would still be alive if a person that kills granny with a hammer is never allowed to leave prison unless in a pine box.  Really, the gun in this instance is the problem?

This argument about guns is so politically motivated.

It has nothing to do with guns.

It's about the sad state of mental health care in our country, both preventative and treament.

Anyone who has had the misfortune of a loved one suffering from mental illness knows only too well the sad state of affairs.

Rather than focus on this---a very tough problrm---we focus instead on the banishment of the messenger(i.e. "guns").

The true intellect of the "intelligensia class" is profoundly disappointing.

"All propaganda has to be popular and has to accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach." -Adolf Hitler

Anyone who has had the misfortune of a loved one suffering from mental illness knows only too well the sad state of affairs.

So when the 'intelligensia' decides to "take action" through their "solutions", mental illness will be defined as clearly as "terrorist" and all former military personnel who've seen lots  (or some) of combat will be swept up into the political category as "mentally ill".  Any military service personnel, former or current, see what is happening to this country ... don't "catch" PTSD or 'else'.

Communist News Network.

Our Patriot group emailed Piers a one way ticket back to UK for Christmas.

This is pretty much what Dennis Thatcher, Maggie's husband, used to say about the BBC.  He was right because we later found out the BBC is/was a nest of child molestors like Jimmy Saville.

Just another stunt by CNN to make something of their dying network.

 

CNN hires a pompous Brit to get under the skin of Americans.

 

Pure trash.

All of TV and ALL of Hollywood is the same. They want to disarm you.  Piers worked for Murdoch in the UK.  Murdoch/Fox is backed by Saudi money.  Shut off ALL of TV and Hollywood or you will keep supporting them keeping you in serfdom.

I agree with you. I was going to sign it, but am not wanting another account at another website just to do so. So my signature is not going to be there. If they opened it up to allow signing without joining, they would probably get a whole lot more ineffective signatures. Ineffective because this is going nowhere fast, even if 1,000,000 folks sign the thing.

What happened to this blog? When did it get invaded by Limbaugh's dittoheads and the rest of the Right-wing fucktwits? 

Some relevant points:

1. If you get your news primarily from ANY TV channel, you are a mouthbreating prole.

2. Gun nuts who think they can shoot their way out of trouble have seen way too many Hollywood movies. Americans increasingly have trouble separating reality from fantasy.

3. Morgan can say whatever the fuck he wants to. If you don't like Freedom of Speech, fuck off to North Korea.

Sorry... after 12 years of Gitmo (created by RINOs and endorsed by Demorats), I was under the impression the US Constitution didn't apply to non-citizens.

The basic protections of the Const. applies to anyone on US soil, foreign citizen or not.

Helvetico,

In reference to your question(s), it would seem Gresham manifests yet again under a new alias.
