Flashback: When Piers Morgan was fired from the [UK] Daily Mirror. “CNN’s main man in prime time, Piers Morgan, has responded to the massacre in Newtown, CT with his usual restraint: He called a guest ‘dangerous’ and ‘incredibly stupid’ during Tuesday’s night’s show, because the man defended the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans. The term ‘incredibly stupid’ might be an appropriate label for Mr. Morgan to wear around his neck. As editor if the Daily Mirror in 2004, he was fired when his newspaper published photos that purported to show British troops abusing al Qaeda terrorists. The photos turned out to be obvious fakes.” Here’s CNN’s resident 2nd Amendment scholar and American history expert at work on his “show”:

Isn’t it time to revoke this criminal’s work Visa and extradite him back to the UK for trial for all the Phone tapping? Considering how the Communist News Network’s ratings have been tanking due to this asshat, I doubt he’d be missed.

Put a list of third world countries on a corkboard, throw a dart, what ever shithole the dart hits is this butthead’s new home. Problem solved and CNN can run extended commercials for the clapper or shamwow to fill the spot and it might just get more viewers.

I’m sick to death of Limeys telling us to turn in our guns.

Tell you what, Britons: Why don’t you dispose of your monarchy (the most expsensive welfare family in history)? Oh, you’re not going to because it’s a tradition? How quaint. You see, firearms are a right, and that’s a bit more important than tradition.

Don’t think that you can school us on how to run a country when you still have a royal family.

I think this view strengthened as they continued to lose it to their military superiors.. Perhaps sad, but an enduring pattern of history. They clearly fought over territory, viciously and often bravely, even if they didn’t plot land out for private use within white picket fences

Then you should return to Asia by way of the Bering Isthmus. We are a migratory species and we do tend to take each other’s land. It is often sad but it is also the unpleasant side to our nature. I am sure that various tribes resented having to defend their turf from their neighbors. Is there a difference?

No, but many Indians burned their enemies at the stake, mounted enemies’ heads on lodge poles, and sold their conquered foes into slavery. Please stop trying to hold yourself in a higher light than any other group. People are people.

Now that isn’t exactly right, they were too buy fighting amongst themselves to worry about the white invaders, and some of them actually asked the white guys who talked funny to help them wipe out other tribes in their entirety…talk about geonocide! Guess Hitler learned it from the natives.

No you were killing and scalping and torturing women anc children. I get that you were angry over your own losses, but no one is innocent in all this. My Great Great Aunt Victoria was kidnapped as a child and lived in an Indian community for several years. She was not badly treated, but she saw her mother and neighbors killed, then lived with the perpetrators for several years, not knowing anything of her remaining family or if anyone even knew she was alive.

Perhaps you belong to the only tribe in the USA that doesn’t have an Indian Casino. In that case, you might want to move to where there is one, and get in on the deal.
Sitting on your ass and complaining about the raw deal you got, puts you in the same class as jcrowley. Get a life.
I have a Native American friend that for some odd reason, doesn’t whine about the raw deal his people got, doesn’t glom off of the casino business, and doesn’t take government handouts. He owns a construction company, and works for a living.
Might be a role model you should look to.

Piers Morgan make his living by being stupid. When he finds someone who doesn’t agree with him he gets confused about who exactly is stupid and always thinks it is the other person. That’s what stupid people do.

Yeah. Zappa dealt with real, live lunatics that he knew (for instance, the guys who collected their own boogers). Robyn Hitchcock is from a different dimension; “a cartoon man in the real world,” as one of his songs says.

I contacted ,via email, CNN’s Piers Morgan Tues. night about this segment of his show that was amazingly ignorant about firearms laws, conceal carry in the U.S. and about gun ownership in general.
I received a reply from CNN a few hours later and this is a portion of that email. See if you find it as disturbing as I do. Not surprising, but disturbing just the same.
