Piers Morgan Lashes Out on Twitter Against Petition Asking White House to Deport Him:: Alex Kantrowitz (author of this article) goes on to state. “Bizarre petitions have found a home on The White House’s easy-to-troll petition site. Others have called upon the White House to build a Death Star (31,000 signatures) and allow Texas to secede (120,000), so a petition asking the White House to deport a media personality exercising his right to free speech seems to fit right in.”: How Mr. Kantrowitz figures that a British subject has a greater expectation of Constitutional Guarantees than American citizens -unless this fellow has completely forgotten that the Bill of Rights does not end with the 1st Amendment- also fits right in . . . with the sort of uncritical thinking that plagues so many of our opinion writers. As for Mr. Morgan. Well, we figure he should have more of an appreciation for American guns. The good folks at CNN might have been less disposed to hire this guy were his accent a bit more German.

He’s just worried he might be sent back to face charges, so SEND HIM BACK!

And that’s the rub isn’t it? Morgan believes that his right to free speech is superior to my right and yours to bear arms. He is getting a long overdue civics lesson. I actually think the petition itself is stupid but it is instructive for Morgan.

As I recently explained to a lib friend on FB, the petition isn’t about having him sent back. I think we all know it isn’t going to happen. It’s about registering our disgust with him in large numbers. Maybe someone at CNN will take notice.

I see your point. His dismal ratings and poor ad revenue generation will do him in st CNN before long. Jake Tapper wasn’t just hired to be a political reporter. I don’t see him making a lateral move to a cable news outlet. He will get that slot, IMO.

I didn’t know he was gay, but an amendment to the Bible? How would you go about that? Can you petition God to change His word?

Not just him , but most would amend the biblical definitions of what is good and what is evil . No hell either .

As Lewis Carroll said , ” They all must be winners , they all must have prizes .”

Well, technically, the New Testament is an amendment.

I disagree. IMO it is better to say it is the written record of that which was pointed to from the beginning. A record of the fulfillment of the OT, not a revision or amended version.

Hey, at least we are only asking for him to be legally deported – tolerant leftards want their opponents assassinated.

He’s not a citizen. What makes him think any of our rights apply to him?

Morgan knows that he’s damn close to being indited for his role in the phone tapping scandal. Deport him now and avoid any problems with any extradition treaties.

While the puke bucket known as piers morgan spills his diatribe all over the media, too many people have forgotten that if not for the abundance of firearms in America and the generosity of the American people, he would certainly, absolutely and positively not enjoy the freedom to spew his hate on us, let alone anyone else. This thing, this now practically absurd idea called the American Committee for Defense of British Homes saved them all.

The link follows this text:
In the dark days following the British Expeditionary Force’s evacuation from Dunkirk in 1940, Great Britain was a nation virtually disarmed. And not just by the need to abandon equipment on France’s beaches to save British “Tommies” to fight another day, but by the policies of its own government. The days of devotion to civilian markmanship, “volunteer rifle clubs” and the idea that there should be “a rifle in every cottage,” as proposed by the Prime Minister Marquis of Salisbury in 1900, had given way to restrictive gun control laws that required subjects to demonstrate “good reason” to merely obtain a handgun or rifle. So with Hitler’s legions poised to cross the English Channel, the British people were defended by an ill-equipped and defeated army and a “Home Guard” armed with little more than sporting shotguns and pikes.

Help for the beleaguered nation came from both the American government and from the American people, the latter through the “American Committee for Defense of British Homes.” In late 1940, the committee sent an urgent appeal — which, of course, appeared in American Rifleman — for Americans to send “Pistols – Rifles – Revolvers – Shotguns – Binoculars” because “British civilians, faced with the threat of invasion, desperately need arms for the defense of their homes.” Thousands of arms were collected and sent to England, one of which was a .30-’06 Model 1903 target rifle owned by Major John W. Hession. Hession was one of the pre-eminent highpower rifle target shooters of his day, and he used that rifle to win Olympic gold at Bisley Camp in England in 1908. The rifle, unlike the majority sent, was returned and can now be viewed int he national Firearms Museum.

The U.S. Government responded to Britain’s peril as well with passage of the Lend-Lease Act in March 1941. Almost immediately, quantities of “U.S. Rifle, Cal. .30, M1″ were on their way across the Atlantic, and those guns are the subject of an article by noted M1 Garand historian Scott Duff starting on p. 42. The “British Garands” have an interesting history but the importance of arming the British at that time is made clear by the fact that the rapidly growing U.S. Army itself did not have sufficient numbers of the then-new M1 Garands. Winston Churchill wrote in Their Finest Hour: “When the ships from America approached our shores with their priceless arms, special trains were waiting in all ports to receive their cargoes. The Home Guard in every county, in every village, sat up through the night to receive them. … By the end of July we were an armed nation … .”

Now, sadly, Britain is again a disarmed nation, where even Olympic athletes wanting to represent their country cannot own a handgun and where an act of self-defense can land a subject in jail. As with virtually all rifles and handguns, those likely few remaining guns sent to England in its time of desperate need have been confiscated and destroyed. Despite the very near enslavement of England being so close a mere six decades ago, the lesson of the false promises of gun control and personal disarmament were not learned.

Sincerely, … Mark A Keefe, IV — Editor
